So... those who know me from past ATS ventures, like the radio shows, already know a bit about me. I didnt hide much, but for those who dont know, and
can help people to understand where I am coming from, I am a hispanic female, from the Bronx, and take social issues quite serious, and I like to
think that airing my points in a mostly non-ghetto ( as that is where I come from, and sometimes my point comes from that angle) group, helped some to
understand the "other" side of the issues we face daily.
Now with that, this will mostly be opinion, and articles concerning the racism issues, if you dont agree, ok. If you do thats ok too. What I will not
do under any circumstance is debate this issue. Not because thats not what writing this is about, but because I will try to write this out in a way
that, you will either love it or hate it, flag it or star it, read it or dismiss it, but I cannot or will not try to make anyone understand me, by
using argument after argument, or debate after debate.
I recently came across an article (as there seems to be at least one a day) called
White People Explain Why They Feel
, and something hit me like a ton of bricks. When I have discussions mostly with people who have never been in a position of real
racism, including many who dont know what it is, and I include minorities that are way to touchy about it, and can never understand what it was REALLY
like 50 years ago, the thing that most people in almost ALL topics dont think about is that when we have a group that think of themselves in a
"higher" class, and shtf, they never logically or psychologically think of themselves as future victims.
The numbers are not adding up for a class/race of people that have never been on the "other" side. For example. If we are always told that we should
fear tsunamis, those that live far away from the water, will not have fear. They are safe, they live far to inland for such a thing. BUT.... they
didnt think about heavy rainfall, tsunamis caused by other weather anomalies, earthquakes, etc,. so when they are hit with rainfall it seems as if
only THEY are being targeted, because it just doesnt make sense.
Now this is what has been happening for hundreds of years. Even when it was clear that whites were far away from those who owned slaves, and no longer
had that mind set, there were still far to many things that would not let that part of history die off. Like movies, television, the media, etc,. It
seemed as if we couldnt escape oppression, even when it wasnt happening by every day people, but from those who control what we see, and do.
We allowed TPTB to target minorities as the aggressors, and whites as passives. We were glued to the screen during the show Cops, and even though the
majority of those who were terrified that this could happen to them, never really saw a crackhead, hanging out on their corner, but feared any day it
would happen. There was a show recently on HBO called the Hero, and it was telling this exact thing. People terrified of people they never met, or
interacted with, but were swayed by photos, news stories, and the newspapers [SPOILER ALERT] it all turned out to be ok, because people took the
necessary steps to get to know others and not judge without first finding out for themselves.
Modern white Americans are one of the most powerful groups of people to ever exist on this planet and yet those very people—or, if you're
white, you people—staunchly believe that the primary victims of modern racism are whites. We see this in poll after poll. A recent one by the Public
Religion Research Institute found 52 percent of whites agreed, "Today discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination
against blacks and other minorities." A 2011 study led by a Harvard Business School professor went deeper to find that "whites see race as a zero
sum game they are losing." That was even the name of the study.It showed that over the last five decades both blacks and whites think racism against
Blacks has been slowly declining, but white people think racism against whites is growing at a fast rate. White people are increasingly certain that
they're being persecuted. The study also notes, "by any metric—employment, police treatment, loan rates, education—stats indicate drastically
poorer outcomes for black than white Americans." White perception and the reality are completely at odds.
The above is very unreal to me. See, we are fooled into believing that "whites" are the rulers of finance, business, stardom, etc,. but where do you
think that comes from? How many uber rich white people do you know? This is from the media SHOWING us whites all day everyday, they give us the news,
they are in most shows as the "STAR", etc,. they are almost all aspects of the so called important part of peoples lives, but this again is
Its not that ALL whites are in control, is that SOME of ALL races are, but for TPTB, they need a scape goat, and they have found it, and have been
using it to their advantage, see white people, they had your back (but not really). While they gave whites a feeling of superiority, it was an
illusion. This wasnt for ALL whites, just for some, and racism isnt for ALL minorities, just for most.
They gave all sides enough ignorance that we all fell for it. We fight for crumbs on a large table, at a dinner we werent even invited to. This is
also why there is really no discussion about ALL races involved with slavery, just one race, for every movie like "Roots" shown here in the U.S.
there is every other nation that has their version, and who do you think is the aggressor in those movies???
The reason that white people are up in arms about being wiped out, or they are now targeted, is because this has never been "out" like this before.
Those in lower income neighborhoods knew, those in 3rd world countries knew, those in the ghetto knew, the only ones who didnt know where those who
had to be closed off to the most important information of their lives, and that is happening now, and must be a shock and a half.
Here is an example to what I mean by that. If you ask a white person, if they think that only minorities are being oppressed or only being targeted by
cops, they will say NO! that both black and whites are having to deal with the same amount when it comes to that, and you know what, they are right...
and wrong. While most are looking at the polls, or stats by the gov, they are only showing in the media, blacks and minorities committing crimes, but
not whites that are dying in droves from drug and alcohol abuse, or higher numbers monthly of them living way below the poverty level, etc,. that
means that they might not have a clue, that their race is dying off at the same rate as those they think are thugs.
We have to see the ultimate divide, and talk to those who see the TRUTH for what it is, not all whites are doomed, and not all blacks are looking to
kill you, there are ALL races every single day, trying to open the can of whoop ass to those who are really killing us, and even if you dont believe
in rioting, protests, disruption, or anything of the sort, believe that this is not for only some people, this is for ALL people, dont wait till its
to late. We can change it now.
