GrilliamG - Revolutionary/militant socialism holds weight in our society?
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 dominationThis says it all pretty succintly. In a contextual void, OP's point would hold merit. But under the weight of historical context, it fails utterly.
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.
