I really enjoyed listening to that
You echo many of my sentiments.
A few things that i've picked up along the way, that has really changed how i look at racial issues, i'd like to share
Im not saying "im right" im saying that this is how *I* percieve things
So please dont think im trying to attack you or anything, because im
the first thing: The government wants to track and monitor race, because thats how you build a campaign for election time.
"there are more latino's in california, than in illinois"
so they'll campaign for the latino vote in california, and another type of vote in illinois.
Atleast, thats how i see it
As far as the other big issue: white people being called white people instead of caucasian..
here is how *I* view it. It may sound like im being "antiwhite" but im not - i AM white - why would i hate my own skin color
Not a single 'minority' friend of mine shares the sentiments. We are truely all friends, and not just "friends out of guilt"
These instances of "afro americans and w hite people" that you pointed out are true, very true. But realize that its what MSM allows you to see.
If they allowed you to see that this isnt the majority of the thinking in minority thoughts, then one wouldnt be so 'defensive' to being white.
basically it goes like this
the history of white people does have dirt in it (but so do all colors)
but powerful whtie people of today, use this to control other white people
Just my opinion.
I've been accused of "white guilt" because i support Obama, have black friends, hire black employees, etc.
I've met just as many stupid black people as i have latino, white, etc....so their accusations are really just out of fear
A white guy cant REALLY want to be friends with a black guy!!!! (?)
Its all just ignorant racism.
Racism will go away with the inclusion of intellectualism in main stream society.
So far the main stream idealism is all about entertainment.
Slow, but surely, intellectualism is squeezing its way into society in the forms of mediums like ATS.
Yes, there are racist *** holes here, like anywhere else, but they are far outnumbered by people who see things for what they are.
Accusing someone of "White guilt" is one of the most racist things that can be said.
Go take a looka round the decision 2008 forum for plenty of examples from a "select" two users.
They call me black because i support Obama
in the very next sentence, they say that im suffering from 'white guilt'
so either im black, or white, ... whatever. They're just scared that i challenge them with so much fact, and their brains cant figure it out...or
something like that
unfortunately for (me), ATS T&C doesnt allow these borderline walkers to be banned, but i still hold out hope
i really enjoyed your podcast....i may have to figure out how to do one, so i can start them myself
My fingers get very numb from typing so much....maybe i can give my mouth some exercise.
