P. Diddy proclaims "black power" on national TV. Was it racist?

Race relations is a very serious issue because TPTB are always beating around the bush about it. The way they go about it does more harm then good. I am a father of 2 and I am seeing society go to shambles because of all this PC BS and any person of moderate intelligence can see it happening. I do not want my children to grow up in a world like that so anytime I can voice my opinion on the matter in hopes of reaching a few individuals I will do so.

White power! I don't get bonus points on tests and exams because of the color of my skin yet I am considered to have white privilege.


What we are ultimately seeing is History repeat itself. History always repeats it self but with a few twists here and there. What we are witnessing now is history repeating itself but the race roles have been reversed. If you can connect the dots, and I believe that you are intelligent enough to do so, you will see that I am correct. It is happening very slowly but surely. And it starts with BS terms like "white privilege". Divide and conquer, the best way they know how, by using race as a crutch.

Not necessarily. You aren't as clever as you appear to think you are.

Where does the 'Historically Black College' you graduated from rank in the world?

Do 'Historically Black Colleges' even rank?

Wouldn't a black only college be considered along the lines of black privilege? Do I smell hypocrisy on the forums today?

Hypocrisy from a 'person of colour' who went to a 'Historically Black College' and tells us that all white people are racist but black people can not be?

No!

Its impossible.

There is no such thing as a black only college in the United States of America. Persons who are not black might be dissuaded from attending a historically black college for obvious reasons, but of course anyone can apply and be accepted regardless of race. The mission of a historically black college is to maintain and promote the legacy of higher education of black people.

who said that you shouldn't be proud of who you are?

But trying to twist a term that stands for black empowerment, not discrimination, into the same category as a term that stands for hatred and discrimination, is beyond ignorant, and I will call it as such.



You fail to see black supremacy in disguise sir?

en.wikipedia.org...


Black supremacy would mean blacks were running everything and forcing others to see themselves as inadequate or inferior. Last time I checked blacks in the US weren't running anything nor were they systematically applying policies to make people feel inferior.

Do you think he is really running anything? If that was true he would be the first of the presidents to do so.

But if you would look into those black colleges it is almost impossible for a white to get in and if a white did, it would be the 1950's all over again but for the white person.

Check out what is going on is South Africa. Look into what is going on there and you will see that the U.S.A is not far behind from becoming like SA.

Black colleges had their time and place, in the past when they had to deal with cruel injustices. Blacks have all the rights that everyone else has so there is no need for black colleges today. Everybody wants to get over what happened half a century and longer ago so why do we still have establishments known as Black Universities?

According to the majority of Black Americans, yes he is black. I call him for what he really is, Mulatto. Calling him either white or black is disrespectful because he is neither, he is both.

You are convoluted if you think Obama really runs this country.
But I'll digress from my conspiratory side.
The U.S government has a thing called checks & balances so let's factor in the 535 members of congress and the 3600 federal judges. There are about 31 african american members of congress but I can't find a statistic for the judges, so that given I'd estimate the ratio of blacks to non-blacks in a position of power in the federal government to be very lopsided in heavy favor of non-blacks

You are a racist for calling a proud black man who is trying to fight to get from under the oppressive fist of the white man a racist!

That's what I would say if I were not always labeled a racist for being white and having an opinion about a race or people of a certain race. Or even poking fun at stereotypes.

P. Diddy should be crucified by the media for this. If Ron Paul or Mit Romney came out and said "white power" they would be verbally destroyed by every media outlet possible. The white people in America still have that guilt of sins of the past that stops them from calling out the double standard. Any race is capable of racism. I've been subjected to being the target of racism, it sucks. So why should we let any one other than a white man get away with being racist?

So we have a half black president but still some 'people of colour' don't want to shake that chip off their shoulder?

Yes very lopsided but look at the general demographics of the U.S. populace! %13 percent of the population is black so It would make sense to have about %13 of blacks in high positions in government. Nobody ever mentions that maybe blacks are not interested in such things. A few years ago in my city, the police force was getting heat because there "not enough" black police officers. The PC crew wanted the city of Erie to hire more blacks. The police chief said "no, we will only hire qualified candidates, we will not hire officers because of the color of their skin" and it happens that Erie doesn't have many blacks cops because blacks didn't want to become cops! That was proven by looking at individuals race that signed up for the police academy. We are often quick to overlook facts like that and blame it on racism, which is taking the ugly and easy way out.

Translated and defined so even you will understand the meaning of supremacy/supremacist because it does not mean they run everything it means they seek to.

racial supremacy
noun
A perceived superiority based on race.
We star-bellied sneetches are better due to our inherent racial supremacy.
The belief that a particular race is inherently superior to others.
Most star-bellied sneetches interviewed found racial supremacy an outdated notion.
The belief that a particular race should rule over others.
A hundred years ago, the star-bellied sneetches tyrannized the plain-bellied sneetches in a shameful expression of racial supremacy.


The notion that the world should be free and equal yet you keep citing history is only the same as adolf hitler citing that arrayns are the chosen race. The only difference is one man and how he saw his view acted out.

For example, hey we want the same rights as you, but you cant call us by any name like cracker but i cannot call you the n word.

how is that fair, if i say ill be nice to you but you in turn are rude.

There is no model on how the assimilation process works, the U.S is the biggest cultural assimilation experiment ever. So you see we don't have anything to base this off, we must manifest our own destiny. One thing I can say for sure, is that in this instance history is not repeating itself. Things were better than they were 5 years ago, things were better than they were 10 years ago, things are getting better. If you want a better future for your children, don't teach them bias judgment, don't teach them how you think the world should be. The ideal country for one is not the ideal country for all. Teach them this is a collective endeavor on the part of every single citizen of this great country, teach them to judge righteously, and teach them to be better individuals than you.

Verily it would take something of cataclysmic proportions to break the bonds of brotherhood that are being forged right here, not in the offices of the 99%ers but between the gears in the mechanism. People like me and you. P.Diddy is a leech, I would not fret over his comments.
