and what is this "deadly oppression" they speak of? what blacks are being oppressed by whites today? the only people oppressing blacks are blacks
Again, you miss the point and cannot see the forest for the trees. One needs to view this issue not as a black vs. white issue, but from an American
society as a whole issue.
Blacks in America are indeed oppressed by white America through systematic racism and ingrained bias. I'm a 28 year
old white Canadian male who does a lot of business in the States, U.K, Germany and the Netherlands. I own and operate dance studios (small commercial
buildings). Make a long story short: I collect rent. Now, I have business partner who acts on my behalf when I'm unavailable to be there in person
when sourcing new locations, or who I give the green light to in order to negotiate and close new deals upon my request because he has the legal
authority to do so. Now, without getting too much into my personal detail on social media, I will share something with you:
My business associate is an American Ivy league graduate; a very intelligent and competent individual; who is very capable of getting things done in a
highly efficient manner which he has done on numerous occasions for me in the U.K, Germany, and the Netherlands. However, I always
had to fly
down to the States and deal with red tape and political F***kery whenever it was just him involved in the business dealings. It always got worked out
in the end when I showed up, but they (the chamber or real estate boards, etc) always gave him a very difficult time when it was him alone. ONLY in
America did we experience unnecessary red tape and politics when it was him acting on his own was concerned. Never happened in Germany, U.K, and
Netherlands. My business partner is black.
and what is this "deadly oppression" they speak of? what blacks are being oppressed by whites today?
A: The oppression is subtle, yet more intricate, and not as cartoon (simpleminded) as you make it out to be. If an Ivy league individual of colour
with a lot of personal financial backing can experience such unnecessary road blocks (oppression) in America - just imagine what the everyday person
of colour in America goes through in subtle ways.
The important thing to note is: It always worked out fine when I entered the picture. Nothing changed other than the fact he removed himself from the
table and I entered as a unrelated new player. In other words: I sailed through easy with the exact same portfolio and business proposal. You see,
they were unaware that it was the exact same cards being played, and only cared about the one who was holding them. I am very well aware of my white
privilege and use it to my advantage, especially when in America where racial and class warfare exist at an disgusting and alarmingly higher rate than
any other first world nation. In America, even the poor white man get F'd as well by the same system, and this is why those of all racial
need to come together. Your mindset only affects you because it plays into the engineering of consent
that keeps the masses
Ironically, your mindset is no different than the BLM's mindset. You are just coming from the other side of the scale, yet projecting the same
However, I do agree with you that "Black on Black Violence" within America surpasses "White on Black violence" and vice verse and that BLM should
actually be addressing this issue along with police brutality
instead of only focusing on police brutality. For white and black America to
focus only on police killings is playing into their hands of conquer by dividing. In other words: Both sides are being played in order to not see the
What is the the truth?
Police culture in the States does not discriminate and in fact more whites are killed by police than blacks are. The news media knows this but, with a
population of 330 million where most are smart enough to understand this truth, there are still millions
of black AND white Americans (grown
adults in their 30's, 40's, 50's and older!) that are unbelievably naive and stupid, that they end up buying into the manipulation. Again, despite the
fact more whites are killed by police than blacks (again they kill everybody,) more blacks are harassed, detained, beaten, and unfairly incarcerated
than whites on a daily basis. The entire BLM and ALM movement is government sponsored through the engineering of consent.
The fact that you created this thread and shared your perspective that reflects your mindset clearly shows me your mind can be easily manipulated just
like those who in the BLM movement who only focus on police killing blacks are easily manipulated.
Both sides are sailing the same infested waters in two different boats firing cannon balls at each other....
In this link below is updated real time police killings with filters you can play around with.
people have been killed by police so far this year.
Out of that number 369
are white. 290
of Whites killed were armed. 62
195 of those 763 killings were black. 129
of Blacks were armed. 60
*How's your math when ratios are concerned...? I hope you possess basic math skills because it paints a clearer picture.
290 of Whites
killed were armed. 62
129 of Blacks killed were armed. 60
So far to date, the police have killed twice more white men than black men, yet the same amount of unarmed for both. Let it marinate...
