I wouldn't say everyone is a coward, but to many people especially in gov't decide to turn the other way it comes to racial relations. I feel where
he is coming from though..you can't look at this issue from purely a white person's perspective because you will hear things that's gonna offend
you, just like i get offended listenin to old white conservatives like rush and don imus. But i don't hate on them specifically because of their
skin tone, i hate because of their views and few people are able to separate the two.
How do you fight for freedom when you willingly allow slavery? What about the genocide of natives of this land and exploitation of the Chinese to
build railroads. It's easy to sit somewhere and say "i'm not responsible" and your not..i don't hold past actions against someone that had
nothing to do it, its wrong. But at the same time it may not have been you but it was your parents and grandparents that clung to the ideal that
someone is inferior to you based on skin color, it was them protesting the integration of schools and public areas and spraying civil rights
protesters with fire hoses when they wanted what the Declaration of Independence supposedly gave to everyone..equal rights.
It's THAT he attacking. My generation (those born around 1979) aren't in power yet, then things will get better..we have alot less of a color
Or better yet, before anyone says anything, go talk to a old black person that lived through all of that BS. The marches, the lynchings, the
assassination of MLK then play them the clip of what he said, then ask them what they think?
You can't go tearin off on someone without trying to understand the angle they are coming from.
I'm not trying to say your wrong or right, quite the contrary. Everyone is right in their own opinion. But at least try to understand the history
from where he's coming from. And that's the underlying problem, to many people are speaking out the side of their neck and don't know what my
parents and grandparents had to go through..
