It's not about my understanding. It's about me, and you, understanding the experience of those who can't take for granted certain social benefits that white people can and do.

There are tons of examples of black people being singled out, accused, threatened and harassed for doing things white people don't think twice about. The examples are too numerous to post and your willful ignorance is too tedious to attempt to appease.




Thanks sookie, every time I start to lose faith in the people of ATS I stumble upon one of your posts and it puts me back in good spirits. Glad some people around here actually get it

God forbid you have to coexist with people who have a different color skin than you. The horror! The oppression!!

Yes, your post is racist.

Edit: unless you're being satirical, which I pray you are

I remember your other post where we replied to each other last time... while reading that one and was just... wow. Not because of implying anything about your son but the University seemed to did excellent brainwashing when he thinks you are so intolerant that you might be racist when you support your other son like you do.

No blame to your son, the University he went to seems like a toxic environment out of the playbook.

And?

You can find examples of this for people of all races, colors, and creeds. That doesn't make it right, but it's not like black people are suddenly uniquely special either.

This recalls the anti-bullying craze of the '90s where suddenly the only people who were ever targeted with bullying were LBGT youth and the answer to stopping bullying was to bully people who didn't immediately conform.

This is the same: Suddenly, the only people who have ever been targeted for being what they are are blacks, and the only way to stop it is to institute racist bullying of other groups until they conform.

Systemic racism is the new way to say that America as a country is illegitimate down to its core principles and Foundations. It's a smokescreen for Marxist overthrow. The only way they'll ever destroy their systemic racism is to overthrow the country and seek equity - equal outcomes enforced by law, and in such a regime, liberty ceases to exist as does individuality which must be subsumed to group identity before all else.


Totally agree Ketsuko!

Yes we had a ton of racists and slavers when we were founded. And?

They like to conveniently forget that TO THIS DAY African slavers were rounding up those slaves for the "evil white men"
WSJ

Yes we conquered and pigeonholed the Indians. This same thing goes on in Europe, Africa, and Asia TO THIS DAY. Countries conquer and destroy. This is sadly the human condition.

But, we are a nation that people can come to from all over the world and build a business, or work hard and improve themselves. I've been literally all over the world. Many, maybe most places do not offer the freedom, liberty, and opportunity we do.

The ones pushing this are very indoctrinated, bury their heads and refuse to see, or are pushing things like Marxism which has NEVER led to more freedom. They are trying to conquer and destroy our country from within. HYPOCRITES!

We might not be the best, we might not have perfect clean hands throughout history, but by damn we are one of the best nations on the planet with some of the most opportunity for those who quite playing victim and work hard. No guarantees, but opportunities exist here.

You do know the usa has a population of over 70% white right? That means there are millions of americans that go through there day without ever seeing a black person. Does that make them racist?

If the system is rigged to white people why would you expect anything less with such a high % of whites.


And they way most blacks talk and the lack of respect doesnt help them any at all except maybe with street cred right?




Boo hoo.

How about the Cuban business in Louisville. Black Lives Matter trying to extort them. FORCE THEM to pay tax/extrosion to BLM or they will attack and put them out of buisniess?
ABC

This business owner escaped from Marxist Cuba to come to the USA. Worked hard and built a thriving Business.

ETA just saw this. They are getting bolder and just directly destroying business now. Many of them run by Minorities. This is a poison that needs to be removed.

Its the same kid. LOL.

That was my point to him...and I think that anyone who even sligtly knows me knows that Im a pretty tolerant person. It was more that he wanted to come back and show what he had learned...in a vacuum. It took me a couple of years to get him to admit that it isn't just white people who are racist. He held the belief that only white people COULD be racist.

And if he came to that conclusion on his own, i'd have little issue with it. Other than the fact that its obviously nonsense based on his own life experience. Its that people use their position of authority to sway the minds of influenced minds. As a college kid I entrusted my mind to my professors, that they would put useful information in. Its the least one could expect for the cost of education.

ETA: my younger son has view points that are very close to mine. Although we differ greatly on abortion...thats more an artifact of his youth I think.

And that's Critical Race Theory. Because white men designed the whole power system in the country, it's means that only white people have power privilege. That belief completely ignores that the system itself is open to anyone of any race who rises to the levers of power in that system, and we see it increasingly happen with people of all races and creeds these days. They still fall back on the idea that the system itself is somehow racist because of who made it and that alone gives every person of white skin some mythical privilege.

What is the end goal that US society would need to reach in order to say "systemic racism" is dead and buried? I assumed when Pres Obama was elected, that would signal that we had reached a true post-racial milestone. A black man had been elected to the highest political office in the country. I myself voted for him. But yet, here we are, years later....and if anything the race agitation has amplified.

If you ask me, where this is going is a true socialist experiment, where affluence, career achievement and prosperity is NOT earned, but doled out in terms of quotas and ratios.

"We need more minority doctors, lawyers and executives!"

ORLY. PoC (depending on your definition) comprise something like 13-15% of the population. WHAT IS THAT YOU WANT. We should have 50% of all well-paying jobs awarded to folks based on skin color?? How does that make any sense as a study in sociology and demographics, and how is that fair to non-PoC minorities in this country.

We have departed any semblance of a merit-based, capitalist-oriented society and are heading into some kind of dystopian warped culture where people are FORCED to bend their knees at the alter of "diversity". Where a company MUST have "fair representation" of diversity in their ranks, qualifications and merit be damned. I know plenty of PoC that don't WANT this 'leg up' status, and would feel the same as anyone else who's awarded things based on their physical appearance instead of the fruits of their labor: cheated and deprived of being recognized for their TRUE ABILITIES not their skin color.

That's just it.

They say that if this minority is X% of the population, then it must be X% of every group, everywhere or else the only possible reason for it is racism.

They never make any calculations for things like racial, cultural, gender preferences. They don't account for personal preference either because they stopped seeing individuals long ago. These days, it's only groups and group identity.

So much easier to hate when everyone is naturally colourcoded don't you find?

Saves on the need for multicoloured badges.

It’s actually a testament to how far we’ve come. Where once we had racist institutions, laws and people, now we have a racism so invisible it can no longer be pointed at. So now, all the race pimps can do is root out “microaggressions”, verbal slights so tiny and unintentional that only the frailest of souls could possibly be injured by them. The only place they can find their martyrs is from within a slew of criminals, particularly those who resist arrest. I suspect that, after a time, critical theory will become equally as invisible as their “systemic racism”.

Nah, I remember the days when being able to explain yourself and back up your points was respected on ATS, hence the motto, deny ignorance...oh wait, nearly everyone in this thread has been...except for a couple of posters that don't seem to get the term, 'deny ignorance' and seem to want to keep spouting it.

Comments like

'Oh yeah there's totally tons of examples trust me'

Are the epitome of spreading ignorance.

Not how it works. Here's an example of systemic racism & white privilege: my family was dirt ass poor for generations. That all changed when my grandfather fought in WWII and was able to get an education from the GI Bill. The GI Bill completely changed the course of my family's history for the better. There's no doubt in my mind my life would be vastly different if it weren't for that. Sadly, what I do know is there were ~1,000,000 other WWII vets who weren't offered those same benefits solely because of the color of their skin. Like my family, many of those families were in dire straits but, unlike my white family, their families received little to no GI Bill benefits, and those honorable Americans weren't able to change the course of their families history... solely because they were black.

If you don't see how that systemic flaw could negatively affect black Americans for generations afterwards, you aren't paying attention. Success, particularly financial success(the only kind of success that matters in a hyper-capitalist society), is often based on the successes of your parents/grandparents. Our handlers love rags-to-riches stories, despite their being the exception to the rule, because it inflates people with a false sense of hope and puts the blame on the individual instead of the system that's been screwing them and theirs over for centuries.

That was 70 something years ago. There are no restrictions on anyone anymore. Pull your pants ts up speak english and get a damn job and keep it. If anyone does those 3 things they will succeed.

Now give us an example of systemic racism that exists today. Not an example of something that happened before the civil rights movement. Also dont give me the look it up yourself.

Seems like Themaskedbeast summarized the gist of what I was gonna say. Guess i'll just throw in, have you compared any of those black Americans lives and families in later generations to your own to see how well they've succeeded compared to yours? Or are you just assuming they are doing worse because they didn't get as much as your family did all that time ago?
