Santo Amaro - Oh dear God. This again. Context. Black power movement such as the Black Panthers was a movement that took place during the struggle for civil rights. That same phrase comes from that context. White power comes from a race hate movement. I know it's hard for some of you to grasp but it is the difference between the two. 1 says I'll fight for equal rights and the other says I'll fight for domination

Kudos to this post, quoted four times in a row with two strongly agrees and two strongly disagrees

Haha. You're so silly.

And naive. There's a growing hatred toward white ppl in general. I understand hatred towards racist whites, but the trend now is putting us all in the box. It's like ppl forget who fought and died for their freedom. White ppl also help them gain their freedom. What you say sounds good and as much as I wish it was true, it's not.

You don't get it bro, racism is fine, asians, brown people and black people are allowed to be racist. Only white people can not be racist. Women are allowed to be sexist. Only male sexism gets mentioned.

That is the new normal.

I've been voted down in this thread for posting context which doesn't make sense. It's as though people think I'm making a statement. I'm not saying anything about who hates who more. I'm not pointing fingers. This is the hidden meaning behind these two power statements. Time will tell if black power morphs into the white nightmare. Currently is still represents a different symbolic communication to its opposite

If you read the original post and understood it more clearly, this wouldn't be necessary.
The phrase "Black Power/Pride" culturally came about during the Civil rights movement as a whole, which included the Black Panthers and all the good and bad that came with them. Regardless of the actions of individuals, the phrase is clearly meant as a call for equal treatment.

"White Power/Pride", by contrast, has an almost entirely negative context. I don't need to point them out, as we all know who is being discussed. That's how pervasive the term has become. Coincidentally, some of the only positive use of the phrase is due to "Black Power/Pride" becoming a part of the general lexicon of society.

This usually boils down to white folks who have been a generation or so removed from institutionalized racism are upset by perceived inequalities, which really just comes off as a football team who's winning 49-7 complaining that the other team cheated to score a touchdown. Phone Post 3.0

You have no idea who the black panthers are Phone Post 3.0

They were a movement that took place "during the struggle for civil rights" or am I wrong? I did not say anything else. But you would know my take on the Black Panther movement right? I think you react to words too much. I think you are a perfect manchurian candidate.
