It's sad what white racists refuse to see. And it's done on purpose.

“Because most whites have not been trained to think with complexity about racism, and because it benefits white dominance not to do so, we have a very limited understanding of it (Kumashiro, 2009; LaDuke, 2009). We are the least likely to see, comprehend, or be invested in validating people of color’s assertions of racism and being honest about their consequences (King, 1991). At the same time, because of white social, economic, and political power within a white dominant culture, whites are the group in the position to legitimize people of color’s assertions of racism.Being in this position engenders a form of racial arrogance, and in this racial arrogance, whites have little compunction about debating the knowledge of people who have thought deeply about race through research, study, peer-reviewed scholarship, deep and on-going critical self-reflection, interracial relationships, and lived experience (Chinnery, 2008). This expertise is often trivialized and countered with simplistic platitudes, such as “people just need to see each other as individuals” or “see each other as humans” or “take personal responsibility.”

White lack of racial humility often leads to declarations of disagreement when in fact the problem is that we do not understand. Whites generally feel free to dismiss informed perspectives rather than have the humility to acknowledge that they are unfamiliar, reflect on them further, seek more information, or sustain a dialogue (DiAngelo & Sensoy, 2009).”

USMB is a fine example of everything mentioned above. And while there are members here who practice racism in their daily lives, they deny the existence of systemic racism.

1626830297229.png


Lately, right-wingers have been on something of a tear denying the existence of “systemic racism.” Harvard government professor Harvey Mansfield, writing on the conservative Wall Street Journal op-ed page, Andrew McCarthy in National Review, and Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute, all have argued that systemic racism is nothing but a term designed to lay a guilt trip on white people and also explain away the continuing failure of Black people to take responsibility for their own inadequacies.

To right-wingers, racism only matters when it is conscious and deliberate; racism that is unconscious, implicit, or institutional simply doesn’t count in their worldview. And as individualists, they think we are all masters of our own fate: If people are poor, it is basically their own fault. Therefore, systemic racism is an impossibility.

The number of true racists in society is trivially small, conservatives believe, and all evidence that Black people are economically disadvantaged just shows that they don’t work hard enough or save enough, have too many children out of wedlock, or are too comfortable being on welfare. The playbook here is clear: Always identify some reason for racially disparate life outcomes that lets white people off the hook and lays the responsibility for their circumstances squarely on Black people themselves. It’s a classic case of blaming-the-victim rhetoric.

It is undeniable, however, that Black people are materially worse off than white people in a variety of ways indisputably documented in objective data. A new report on household income from the Census Bureau shows that the median income (the exact middle of the distribution) for Black households was just $45,438 in 2019, versus $72,204 for white households. The poverty rate was 18.8 percent for Blacks but only 7.3 percent for non-Hispanic whites. These gaps have existed for decades.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, African Americans have had lower earnings and higher unemployment for as far back as there is data. One reason: Research shows that employers are less likely to interview job applicants with Black-sounding names than those with white-sounding names. It’s even the case that Black taxi drivers receive lower tips than whites.

Space prohibits a full accounting of all the ways systemic racism permeates American society. A recent effort by Citigroup economists to calculate its economic impact concluded that if the racial gap in the U.S. had been closed 20 years ago, the gross domestic product would have been higher over this period to the tune of $16 trillion. Here’s a partial rundown of Citigroup’s findings:

  • Closing the wage gap would have added $2.7 trillion to Black income, raising consumption and investment throughout the economy.
  • Improving access to housing credit would have raised the number of Black homeowners by 770,000, which would have added $218 billion to GDP.
  • Increasing access to higher education for Black students could have added as much as $113 billion to national income.
  • Leveling the playing field for Black entrepreneurs in terms of lending might have led to an additional $13 trillion in business income, creating 6.1 million jobs per year.
  • Closing all these gaps immediately would raise GDP by $4.8 trillion between now and 2025, adding 0.4 percent to the growth rate per year.

in the real world, we have had a bi-partisan consensus among whites, in favor of racial equality for blacks since the early 60s.


This has been reflected with policy and spending and rhetoric and action, constantly and excessively for the last 60 years.


Denying this is retarded. Something only a retarded monkey would do.

Can't close the wage gap until blacks close the education gap.
Start acting white.

Increasing access to higher education for Black students could have added as much as $113 billion to national income.

We already did, but affirmative action causes black students to be mismatched.
Increases their dropout rate.

Think about complexities. I've been waiting a long time for you to comment on the info I gave you that half of all race hoaxes are race hoaxes.

Plus the Hunter situation and the use of ****** extensively

Please let's get these 2 details ironed out and we can cheerfully move forward....Thanks IM2

Then they could close the gangster punk gap, producing another $100BB.

When not one Baltimore high schooler was proficient in anything. How could higher education even be close to being discussed. Not even one student in an entire district could pass a test by accident for CS?

When or if ever you can tell me what systemic racism is in your own words that we can discuss maybe we can come to an understanding...but all you do is copy and paste bullshit that means nothing....

The right's entire ideology revolves around denying that anything horrible has ever been done by white Christian people in history. All has been sweetness and light.

There was no Holocaust, enslaved black people were never mistreated or sold away from their families, there was no Jim Crow, there were no anti-Semitic pograms, Native Americans were not driven from their lands and massacred, no one was ever denied the vote based on race or sex, rapists have always been vigorously prosecuted. Nobody goes hungry or is homeless in the U.S. except for the lazy. Nobody lacks access to health care. I could go on.

Oh, and anyone who thinks otherwise is a commie marxist who hates America.

I've never denied any of that.

Or that Nazis were evil. And commies still are evil.

Or that the mullahs in Iran should all hang.

Explain what lies I am telling. Also explain what wrongs have been done to you and by whom. Explain what is so "evil."

Then explain just what the hell it is that you people want to turn this nation into and why. Remember that we are a nation that is supposed to offer freedom and justice for all with a government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people.
