How dare you, a White man tell me how I need to behave of feel to appease you or make in roads to a Whiteness that continues to change rules, deny us votes, lie to our faces, kills us when our backs are turned, and offer us solutions that helps no one but you — the White guy! You have a nerve sir! You have no idea how we Black people live, what we fear, and how difficult it is for us to navigate your kind — covert/subtle racist White men. You’re exposed now.
So please don’t patronize me. About the anger you think you perceive — it’s not anger. And if it is, I have the right to be angry about how I’m treated consistently, with no justice.
Go find some White women and advise them on how they should act and how to feel. If covert racist like you would spend as much time helping White men on how to not be racist as you’ve spent telling me how wrong I am or how angry I am — perhaps we’d make some progress in race relations in this country.
Now to your comments and your “advice.”
Clarence Thomas is the epitome of a White racist man with a Black face. He doesn’t even acknowledge his Blackness. And because he’s denied his Black heritage and assimilated into lily Whiteness, Whiteness protected him and elevated him to the Supreme Court. The only reason he’s there is because he was a loyal GOP’er. The token Black. He may look like me, but in all his ways he’s as White as you are! Ask some Black people if you know some!
As far as Dr. Martin Luther King is concerned, clearly you’ve only heard how peaceful he was. Apparently you glossed over the part where he was sick tired of White folks and their apathy — like the kind you just spewed. The letter below was written by Dr. King in 1963. In it, Dr. King COMPLAINS about how his methods were misguided and how White folks (just like yourself) don’t realize how passionate we are about Black oppression, racism, police brutality and injustice. It’s 2019 and here we are singing the same tune.
Dr. King said in this very letter “Over the past few years I have consistently preached that nonviolence demands that the means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek. I have tried to make clear that it is wrong to use immoral means to attain moral ends. But now I must affirm that it is just as wrong, or perhaps even more so, to use moral means to preserve immoral ends.”
So yes Chris…I am overstating my case. You do the math and ask yourself does a group have the right to be tired.
It’s been 400 years since the first slaves arrived on the shores of VA, and we’re still asking for the same thing. Your comment is asking us Black folks to keep on waiting while White men like you continue to make excuses for your behavior and oppression.
Read his letter — digest it — then come back and Whitemansplain it to me, because I know your kind just can’t help doing just that!
Letter from a Birmingham Jail [King, Jr.]
16 April 1963 My Dear Fellow Clergymen: While confined here in the Birmingham city jail, I came across your recent…
Michelle Obama, I’m not even going there with you. She’s the right type of Black that White men like you run to. “Articulate,” an ivy-leaguer, quiet and always in a position where she can’t tell White people like you off when you get the hell out of line. Clearly you didn’t read her book describing the hell she endured in the White House and throughout her career.
We won’t even go into how she was disrespected by Rep. Steve King (A WHITE man who still holds his seat by the way after being disrespectful to Michelle Obama for 8 years). She had to bite her tongue and be first lady like as White men berated her ass, her face, her kids, her husband, her mother, and everything else about her. Beacuse you’re a White man, you’ve never had to walk in those shoes, but I have. So don’t you dare tell me I need to act like Michelle Obama. She put her husband before herself, and she took more than her share of shit from White people — just like all Black people have. She also had to conform so she wouldn’t piss White folks off, making things bad for the rest of us Blacks…something you have no clue about!
If you had some Black female friends they’d tell you not to go there…but you don’t and it shows because you say foolery like the crap in your above post.
The man admitted he was in the photo, then decided it as a lie later. In any event, too many Black men never get the chance to prove themselves innocent, because they are killed on site by White cops or corrupt prosecutors who don’t care because they more people in jail means the more money they get for their judicial circuit. If we wait long enough, he’ll try to convince us he’s not guilty and it’s all fake news like Trump.
It was on his yearbook page, and anyone who has ever had a yearbook page knows you send that shit to the person in charge. No one gets to put any old photo on your page. We might have been born one night, but it wasn’t last damn night. He needs to get out of our faces and let’s start healing.
White men always get the presumption of innocence, especially when they have money and their careers/livelihoods are on the line. How many Black children and moms did he harm because he doesn’t respect them? We don’t know , I’m sure the hospitals had no clue they were hiring a racist pediatrician— but what we do know is that before he got started in medicine, he clearly didn’t have any respect for Black skin (hence — the KKK robed friend on his page). They don’t sell Klan robes at Party City or the costume store…you know a guy or two with times.
I don’t care about anything you say Chris. You’ve played all your race cards in one day in one post! Good job. And my apologies if you’re really not a subtle racist White guy, you sure sound like one.
Interculturalisticman will you please check out this dude!
