hooha - There are also countless instances of blacks crying racism for financial gain or notoriety, only to be revealed as frauds by those very same cameras. Sorry, I don't buy into it like you do. Nobody's saying racism doesn't exist. Tribalism is in human nature. We've consciously overcome that on a societal scale. The racist oppression you lick your chops over just isn't as endemic as you want to believe, and insistence that it does only serves to devolve us back into a tribal state.
youarewhatiswrong - In fact, I've worked with more black folk than I have white folk. I live in an area with a very high black representation, and an even higher representation of wealthy blacks. They aren't oppressed, and those rich successful ones are those that go through life without getting stuck in the mindset that they are oppressed. The ones that buy into your bullshit, though, they get stuck blaming others and never succeed at looking at themselves. You're the problem.
Where do you live? Just curious!
By the way, you never answered my question about "hate speech" from our earlier posts...
And are you familiar at all with the history of the civil rights movement in the US? Have you ever seen footage of how blacks suffered over those years? Wasn't that long ago, and things continued to be horrible in the 70s and 80s for black Americans...
And are you aware at all of the constant stream of video evidence of police abuse towards and the murder of blacks in the US? This is how it's always been, just now folks are catching it all on camera...
Despite your personal experience (which sounds VERY limited, sorry dude, it's how you present yourself), don't these points in history mean anything to you?
You're not discussing this rationally, I wish you could see that. Maybe you're reacting, rather than reflecting on what I wrote...
I'm referencing many decades of REPORTING, news footage of blacks being hung, beaten, treated like subhumans. This is American HISTORY. All the footage is readily available at your fingertips.
And you're saying those "SAME CAMERAS" (almost of century of reporting from news agencies and reporters from all over the world) are also reporting on individual American blacks who are scamming the system?
Well, THAT would be something you'd have to prove with evidence.
There's nothing to "buy into". This is a history that is supported by mountains of evidence. Filmed, written, recorded evidence for your eyes and ears and brain. Stuff that is supposed to be taught in school.
SYSTEMIC (not tribal) racism (esp. against blacks) is the history of America and it's very alive today. It's engrained in your society. Your refusal to accept that is proof of this.
I won't keep arguing with you. The stuff you write is pretty offensive to me, but I also get the impression that you might even possibly like some black people, maybe even have an acquaintance of color in your life (from work, I guess, maybe). Or not.
