Well, I think I've put forward a few good points and also heard a few good points. And I'll explain my intentions as I take my leave.
The title of the thread is synonymous to the stereotype of black people. Not because a dense part of the population commit crimes means they are all
out to commit crimes. If you can't handle a stereotype of being a racist, don't hand out a stereotype.
Privilege is state of being, not a stereotype, name a negative stereotype of white people, there exists none. However, the poor Muslims, they can't
live. It is proclaimed that they brought down the WTC and ever since then, there have been constant war there, as well as a negative stereotype of
them. Hispanics? "Did you jump the border?" Blacks? Criminals, thugs, dressing like thugs. A white mass shooter? Mentally ill.
Slavery was mentioned, not as to blame you but to suggest why the black community might be in its current state, many persons replied with angry
comments saying they don't want to apologize. They didn't do it. They aren't responsible. Of course, you aren't, that's a very obvious fact. Many also
state that you don't pay for what your ancestors have done. However, they refuse to acknowledge that the work of minds like Einstein plays it's part
up to today in society. I'd bet if one finds himself a part of Einstein's bloodline they'd jump and quickly accept the glory that comes with it.
People are saying hey BLM need to be better at protests and try to have peaceful protests and what not. People try, but as you've also stated within
this thread, why would the media ever show the good when they can show the bad? Colin kneeled, and he got ridiculed. There have been peaceful
protests. Some saying they need to write, sing, do this, do that. But they do, not all of them. But because of those who may riot the entire group is
labeled as destructive. Understand the stereotype and drop it.
People bring up anything they can to justify things, what about black on black crime. Black on black crime exists, black on white crime exists, black
on Hispanic crime exists. Just as, white on white crime, white on black crime, white on Hispanic and so on. And because of associations, a race is
most likely to kill its own race, because they are most likely to associate with their own race. However, if blacks are going to kill blacks, innocent
blacks at that, and police do the same, who do you expect them to turn to? So they protest. It's not in an event to say hey stop the police from
policing. The protests have already RUINED police/black relations for some people. Therefore the only way to fix it is to rebuild the trust. Who's
going to communicate with the police whom you fear to tell them of criminals who you also fear?
Also, this thread speaks of suppressing BLM, many persons jump to say, ALM whenever they hear BLM but make no attempt to assist or create a movement
to assist. They leave it in place the way it is and suggest one should just wait for better times. On the same hand, there are comments saying, hey if
these lazy bastards want something they should go get it. That's what they are doing, attempting to get better for themselves. Many people seem
angered by it, to the point they'll never see any good or any attempt for the good they are trying to achieve. It's rather wrapped in a conspiracy
and/or any other negative thing that can be found.
Then since it doesn't concern you lay back and have your government take care of it, that has been the attitude laid forward by the "all lives matter"
consignees. The moment your safety is threatened is the moment you'll suppress that which threatens it. However, the black person who tries it is told
by others, to settle down as what he is experiencing is utterly fake.
Another point I see stressed, the knife slices both ways. It does. But if one race is stereotyped and abused for it and another isn't. Does the knife
still cut both? Do you still deny it? Do you refuse to accept in any form shape or way the black race has a negative stereotype?
To you all I say have a good day, I have learnt from a few and understand the mindset of a few. I hope there are a few who may have learned from me
