    It's now time to look at the cold, hard, graphic reality of what racism by whites has entailed. The information used in this thread will come from the book, "White Rage," by Dr. Carol Anderson.

    White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide
    National Book Critics Circle Award Winner
    New York Times Bestseller
    A New York Times Notable Book of the Year
    A Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book of the Year
    A Boston Globe Best Book of 2016
    A Chicago Review of Books Best Nonfiction Book of 2016

    From the end of the Civil War to our combustible present, an acclaimed historian reframes the conversation about race, chronicling the powerful forces opposed to black progress in America.

    Since 1865 and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate, relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court’s landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 triggered a coded response, the so-called Southern Strategy and the War on Drugs that disenfranchised millions of African Americans.

    White Rage — Carol Anderson

    Starting with my next post, you will be shown in graphic detail the steps whites took to deprive blacks of equal rights and freedom after slavery ended up until our lifetimes. The root cause of the problems blacks face is white racism. That's a fact and it's time people faced that fact.

    They don't dare look at what Trump has actually DONE for blacks. That would not work for them.


    They don't want blacks to do THAT.

    As a white person, I sometimes resent accusations of white rage because I have not been a part of the reasons for black discontent. But as a youth I 'went along' feeling helpless to change the current system. Then I read "Black Like Me" and realization of black reality crept in. Back in the 60's the intent of all those 'unraged whites' who fought things like school segregation and voter suppression was so clear, as several lost a lot, even lives, to fight for America's promise to ALL citizens.

    But lack of following action created an anger that formed itself into gangs like the ones in LA and Chicago that forgot the dignity of those black protesters of the 60's who faced disgrace with class, and now everything is all messed up. Blacks had the gall to 'rage' back! And now both sides are equally guilty of disgusting and murderous actions. I can't sort it out anymore.

    White conservatives opposed to black progress in America – it’s important to acknowledge that fact; not ‘all whites.’

    Except there has been TONS of "follow on actions", ranging from massive social programs and government oversight, to massive spending, to massive and widespread discrimination in favor of blacks.


    So, that "rage" is bullshit, and the rejection of it, is totally called for.
