I have been doing a lot of Blog surfing and commenting when I couldn’t stomach the tripe that seems to be served up when it comes to racism and whites. It seems that the whites commenting on those Blogs have more of a problem with people actually pointing out racism than they do with the actual racism. It was so bad that one commenter actually said “number 1 for me is not the nig word BUT the fact that he was having a PRIVATE conversation when some ass hole invaded his privacy.” Now how would this sound if I used this with the recent news of Chester Stiles who raped a three year old girl and videoed the sick event and the tape being given to the FBI so the perpetrator could be apprehended. Now using this one white person’s comment we should all be mad at the person who gave up the tape after all Chester did make it in the privacy of his own home.
But this wasn’t even the worse of it. The one thing that seemed to bother me most was that the majority of the white people commenting felt the need to tell me that it isn’t racism that plagues blacks and exactly how black people can improve themselves so they won’t have any problems that mimic racism. Not only this but what blacks are doing that holds them down. Now we all know that the crap they were spewing was the same propaganda that you see on the news and more likely FOX news to be exact. Such as blacks need to stop wearing their pants around their knees, stop committing all these crimes and end up in jail, black parents don’t teach their kids right from wrong, and we are all sitting on welfare etc. Then you point out the stupidity in the statements only to be told that you are the problem with the black community, you know all this talk of racism and I’m holding the black race back.
Funny I didn’t know that a black person looking at racism keeps other blacks from obtaining jobs, healthcare and education. Anyway a person said “If he is racist – and doesn’t broadcast it to the public – that is his right. He is entitled to think anything he wants to as long as he doesn’t hurt anyone.” It does hurt people. How, well because it won’t stay in the home, so when these men that actually have power are these so called at home racists they bring these feelings to work and blacks get shafted out of decent jobs, healthcare and education. So isn’t that hurting someone or does that matter? These people are so consumed with the fact that they believe that racism is not an issue, because for them it isn’t, that no matter what the racist scenario is, it wouldn’t be racist at all.
This one is my favorite for sure, “If a business owner works their butt off to build a business and writes checks to employees to work in that business, they have the right to hire the employees that they feel will help them build their business. Getting hired isn’t a “right” anymore than driving is.” What a simplistic view that does not look at the big picture. We already see that the majority of companies are predominantly white so according to her they should be completely white if that is what the company owner wants. But, there are laws that prohibit companies from this exact behavior. So if she believes that companies should be able to go all white which is essentially what this will boil down to since most companies only have the law required amount of blacks; then she believes that the blacks who don’t get hired should either live in extreme poverty and on welfare start turning to crime. Or maybe they should all go work at McDonald’s like one of them told me we should be doing.
Yet these are the same people who will swear they are neither racist nor prejudiced and want nothing more than to have equality rain supreme. But with the things that they say, it is almost like they are ignoring or forgiving the racist due to having the same feelings. None can tell me what happened and when to level the playing between blacks and whites. And until we level this playing field then the disparity between blacks and whites will continue. We will continue to support the racist and demonize the whistle blower because they invaded someone’s privacy thus the status quo will be safe for another days subjugation of black people.
