Blacks don't see racism in everything that's another stupid racist claim. Every years blacks suffer the most attacks of hate against us and it is done primarily by whites.There is no doubt in my mind whites can be racist toward blacks today. There is also no doubt in my mind that blacks often see racism in everything, thus clouding their ability to succeed and comprehend. I suspect it has become a crutch for many blacks and it results in hate toward whites. Hate is a powerful emotion and leads to harmful consequences for all involved.Is the cause of racial problems exclusively the blame of whites?DGS49
(a). Most "white" people couldn't care less about race
Well if that was the case then we would not have racial problems we have.
nor do they have the power to meaningfully discriminate against any POC even if they had the desire to do so. It's BLACK people who make race an issue.
Apart from a few nuts white people do not walk out their door in the morning saying, “I am going to screw black people”
They don't have to : Their forefathers set up the country to do just that.
(b). White people experience most of the same disappointments in life that Black people do, but Black people attribute it to their race. I've been rejected by schools, lost jobs, been turned down for promotions, not been appointed to committees, been given assignments at work that "nobody" wanted...but I couldn't blame any of it on my race. When the same thing happens to a Black person, the first place they go is to call the decisions-maker a racist. And it is quickly becoming tiresome.
You're correct things like
1. Being rejected from schools
2. Lost jobs
3. Been turned for promotions
4. Not appointed to commitees
5. Been gives assignments at that work that nobody wanted
All of the above things can happen to you (or any person), but they won’t happen to you backed by the institutional power of Whiteness.
A cop can pull a white person over and harrass them, but the law enforcement system (a White institution) is not designed to disproportionately assume your guilt because you are White.
Any [insert negative action] can happen to anybody.
The difference between it happening to someone who is white and someone who isn't is that the issue of whether it happens solely because of skin color (on a systemic level) does not have to be taken into account by a White person.
(c). The millions of Black people who have been successful - who have successfully assimilated into the culture to the extent necessary to succeed - prove the lie of racial discrimination holding Black people back. It happens, certainly, but not often enough to explain "income inequality." That is mainly on Blacks themselves - see below.
What do you mean by successful ? There are black people with money. Sure but there were black people with 55 years ago (Muhammad Ali, Sidney Poiter, Sammy Davis Jnr, Ella Fitzgerald) but there was still racism and plus there is not one wealthy blk person in America.
If you are a small boat at sea, a bit away from the shore, but I push you over and you drown and I say you drown because you did not learn how to swim
Am I right ?
Well technically yes I am but that is only dealing with secondary circumstances. YES, knowing how to swim might have been a solution to you're problem, once you was in the water, but NOT knowing how to swim was not the cause of your problem.
The CAUSE was me who pushed you.
Same thing with Black Americans – yes, becoming doctors, dentists and accountants would help matters. BUT those are not the primary CAUSES of the problems here in the United States. The CAUSE is the white supremacist and the non black buffer class who just as white supremacists. Black people don't have any allies. That's why I hate the term "People Of Color"
Everyone is at war with black people. Matter of fact even a few days ago - Asians were donating thousands to white supremacist groups like the Proud Boys.
Black Americans were are the non black group only who fight you. We are the only ones. You've broken the Asian and Latino's and what makes Black americans so amazing is that we are out numbered, out financed, out gunned. We go up against the most powerful military on the planet but we STILL dust ourselves down "Hell no we ain't gonna bow down to this sh*t"
So every problem (in fact I'll take it a step further) every problem on the planet is the fault of the white suppremacists
