This is just me spit balling.. not a deep seeded dogma of mine..
Also for easy writing I will refer to white and black like they are not fake concepts..even though they are fake concepts.. lol
(In a nutshell if you don't feel like reading my rambling to set the stage.
" should the focus of civil rights type issues have been put solely on the minority figureheads??? Did selling the narrative as if it was black vs
white, rather than as addressed by a coalition vs the establishment hurt more than it helped???"
But I wonder if part of the reason for the push back against civil rights type issues in the modern era . Is because white heros are of civil rights
have been forgotten..
They have created a narrative where the whites were the bad guys and whatever oppressed people valiantly won civil rights by them selves..
The whites are always considered the villians and whatever oppressed culture are the protagonists..
Which isn't really true....
SOME whites were the most disgusting human beings imaginable and SOME whites have championed every single civil rights issue in American history..
EVERY SINGLE CASE of progress along the lines of civil rights in American history had ATLEAST as many white/male champions as women and those of
I don't even think it would be possible for an oppressed people to win against a United empire that was oppressing them.. no matter the race, creed or
color of those oppressed.
If all whites were united against abolition or intergration, we never abolish slavery or intergrate society..
If all men were against women's sufferage, women are still property to this day..
It takes a coalition to fix things.. some of those in power and those being oppressed comming together to make changes to the social order.. ..
I completely understand the logic behind wanting an oppressed face to lead your movement, and to stop all the " it took a white man to save the day"
type garbage from circulating.
But I kinda wonder if instead of the narrative being that civil rights was between black and white. What if instead the narrative was that civil
rights was between SEGREGATIONISTS AND INTERGRATIONISTS???
Or hell what about between racists and people who wanted equality???
I just kinda wonder if we haven't robbed little white kids of white civil rights heros...
I wonder if in doing that, we have taken away the sone of the ability for them to identify with that team..
So instead they consider themselves inherently the robbers in a game of cops and robbers..
When that's not even really the case in the first place..
I hope I have adequately portrayed my thoughts..
