Thanks Jim, I rarely post on such subjects in a serious manner but I felt compelled to educate today.
I dont resent, hate, or even distrust white people. I tend to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and the same treatment. I've directly worked with racist white people. Some of them don't even realize they're racist they just lived a certain way their parents taught them. I don't treat them any differently. I respect openly racist people for the fact that they're open with it, obviously don't care for their views. Goes for all racist not just whites. Closet racist and those who deny racism is still affecting colored people, that gets on my nerves to no end.
I have to agree with you. Though I've been accused of being a "White people hater" on occasion (even here), nothing could be further from the truth. Having said that, I AM
exceedingly tired of the same bullshit over and over. Here's my personal POV.
I'm 64 years old, am a college grad, successful in my chosen field, never spent a MINUTE behind anyone's bars and I still have to deal with "ignorant White folk's BS" on a regular basis.
My CHILDREN have to deal with it. I've recently been informed that my 6 year old granddaughter has been subjected to this nonsense.
My PARENTS had to deal with it.
My GRANDparents had to deal with it.
My GREAT grandparents had to deal with it.
My GREAT GREAT grandparents had to deal with it.
How many MORE generations will have to? At what point does one simply say "FUCK THIS"
and push back with extreme prejudice?
The fact is racism in America is endemic, utterly counter-productive and is achieving little more than ripping this country apart at the seams. Every ethnic group that has entered this country since its inception has had to take a bite from the "manure cake." The list is lengthy, to say the least. Africans, Hispanics, Asians, Irish, Italians, Jews, Germans, French, Spanish, Polish, you name it. Let's not even get started on the indigenous people of this continent.
My fear is White America will keep this crap up until it explodes in their faces....at which point, they'll likely blame the explosion on those they've affected and cry "Why are they so ANGRY?"
