Maybe you should try asking some black people how they feel about this. Ask if they think it's for them or not.

The only thing missing, is Uncle Ruckus from Boondocks singing White Heaven to complete the cycle.

Does that make me racist when I cannot even see them as colored? Maybe I need some glasses or something.



According to some, yes. Whites are racists if they don't see race but see human beings. We're supposed to be asking, "How can I do better?" Because, you see, every white is a racist. And no, they honestly don't see the racism inherent in that position.

A relative of mine believes this.


I thought everyone was supposed to be equal in this country. I saw that racism is in a grocery store, Ethic foods are often in a special area. I like it that way, if I am going to make oriental food, it is all in one spot, and near that is the Taco shells and taco stuff, also the India foods are there and also the mediteranian stuff. I think it is great that it is all in one place, but evidently that is racist too, if you feel like making Chinese, you are supposed to spend a half hour looking for the ingredients all over the store. It is not racist, it is actually nice to get everything you need in that one aisle. Is there special food for black people? I have no clue, is cajun black or southern? I tend to not like too much overspiced food, but that is more southern than black I think.

Wouldn't forcing those foods to be scattered all over the store actually be a racist act, making them look all over for things when they could be all in one area? I actually run into more Asian people in the frozen vegetable area than in the Asian area, seems like they like using frozen veggies like we do.

I don't have any guilt for being white. I actually paid attention to the people in the grocery store today, I wasn't even aware that there were that many African Americans shopping in the store we go to, I never even noticed there were very many blacks in the town. I guess I should pay attention to the color of people's skin more, instead of being color blind.






So, now am I supposed to treat these black people differently now, Am I supposed to be aware of the color of the other people in the store? If I try to strike up a conversation with these younger women, they will probably think I am a horny old man....Maybe I will just go back into seeing all people as people and not pay attention to their color again. I mean, if I don't pay attention to the color of a person.... Does that make me racist when I cannot even see them as colored? Maybe I need some glasses or something.



Its like the picking of a scab........Its what keeps racism alive
........



I remember racism back in the sixties, it was all over back then. It is way down from what it was back then, in most of the areas other than some big cities, it is not bad at all up north. I do not know how it is in some areas of the south, I know both sides are standoffish with the other. If you are white and go into a black restaurant, they get all weird, and everyone quits talking, but if you stand up and announce to the whole restaurant that you heard on the radio that Churches Chicken was really good and you wanted to try it, they all start talking again and they just think you and your wife and kid are weird and the tension goes down. My wife thought I was nuts at first, but then she saw it worked to break the ice. You could feel the tension in the air before that. They got a good chuckle about me.

I also like getting to know which stores are closer to populations of certain ethnicities. If you can't find a reliable actual market for that group, then knowing which stores are close will get you a better, more varied selection of the produce and products for that style of cuisine.

There's one store in the local grocery chain that everyone prefaces with Mexican because the Latino population near that store pretty much guarantees that about 1/3 of the store may as well be Latino market, so if you're cooking Mexican/S. American, that's where you go for your more obscure stuff.

I would like to.
The demographic here is probably 85 15.

But I welcome someone putting me in my place.

So, op, what are the white people supposed to do? What would satisfy those who appear to be incapable of satisfaction with this subject?


White people should....

I wish it was that easy.
Maybe white people have done enough.

Perhaps white people should...
Shut the f#$& up?

It's simple, really. Follow me here.

The black guy was killed on purpose by the officer to provoke the mass civil disobedience.

The objective? Have liberals spread covid-19 amongst themselves to thin their numbers before the election in November, giving Trump a badly needed win.

People who are positive with covid-19 were paid to goto the protests. Don't believe me? Just watch.


That would be amazing if it was true.

It's not.

If you are being made to feel guilty for things you did not do, you are probably being manipulated.
If you feel it your duty to act against injustice you should probably do so more often, and less dramatically.

The India stores have really reasonable priced India spices, my daughter went to one somewhere and bought bulk spices from them. A huge bag of red peppers was like nine bucks, the equivalent in the super markets would have cost forty bucks because you had to buy smaller packages. A couple pound bag of turmeric powder was like eight bucks. She also bought other spices in medium size bags, maybe ten ounces and they were between four and six bucks. I had her pick up some cardamon too, a quarter of the price that we pay in the store here. They import their spices right from India I guess and the fact that they sell lots of it means they can sell it cheaper.

We have Italian markets here but that is it other than the grocery stores.

The strange thing here is that most of the white people here protesting are the ones that act entitled. Maybe they feel guilty because they benefit from being entitled. I am not entitled, the wife and I worked for what we got and none of our ancestors had slaves or benefited from slaves, nobody was even in this country when slaves were around and our ancestors worked hard for what they got. Around here the black people who want to work get jobs at the same pay everyone else does, around here a good job pays about sixteen bucks an hour now and most times the insurance if there is insurance sucks. A roofer gets about fifteen bucks an hour, but usually they start out at about twelve for the first year. Same with a construction worker. Until you work maybe five years for a company you do not make much....black or white, red or yellow, we all get paid the same. The thing around here is you have to work and produce, or you get canned. There are jobs like in stores where people do not work so hard, but if you don't do your job you are gone.

Nope. Apparently seeing everyone as equally human is racist now.

Not at all, I think the pressure is on for bad cops to finally stop having licenses to murder at will. I do expect the outcome will also help reduce police murders of unarmed Whites as well though, so I guess in that sense the protests are "for Whites" as well.

Do you really think this will result in a better situation?

If you're a cop beatin down n****s all day is this making you more or less open to racial diversity?

There's a bunch of white liberals who will never face the repurcussions of the race war they are starting.

But they sure do look woke!
