When having any discussion on Racism, I always ask this ask this question. Do Black people own, control or influence any of these 9 Areas of People activity in the United States of America? They are
If that person (s) is honest, they'll admit Black people don't own, control, nor influence any of them. All of these areas of people activity negatively affect the lives of the overwhelming majority of Black people every day in the United States, and everywhere else Caucasians have the power to control those areas I alluded to above. Anyone who denies this fact is either disingenuous, lacks integrity or is completely ignorant of the facts of History, as well as current events.
Here's a quote that might help further explain what I mean. It comes from the book entitled, "Two Nations: Black, White, Separate, Hostile And Unequal" by Dr. Andrew Hacker. Contemplate upon his words. He says,
"Thus, Coleman Young, the Mayor of Detroit, a predominantly Black City, has argued that Blacks cannot be racists, for the simple reason that they are an oppressed people. Racism, he has said, should be attributed only to those who have the power to cause suffering. Racism takes its full form only when it has an impact upon the real world. While most white people may dispute the Mayor's reasoning, he raises an important point. If we care about Racism, it is because it scars people's lives. Individuals who do not have power may hold Racist views but seldom cause much harm. (No one cares if homeless people believe the Earth is flat.) The significance of Racism lies in the way it consigns certain human beings to the margins of society, if not painful live and early deaths. In the United States, Racism takes its highest toll on Blacks. No white person can claim to have suffered in such ways because of ideas that may be held them by some Black Citizens. Ideas about equality and inferiority and superiority are not simply figments of people's minds. Such sentiments have an impact on how institutions operate, and opinions tend to be self-fulfilling. If members of a minority race are believed to deficient in character or capacities, the larger society will consign them to subordinate positions". --"Two Nation: Black, White, Separate, Hostile, And Unequal" by Dr. Andrew Hacker p 29.
Finally, I'll leave you these quotes to contemplate.
"If you DO NOT know Racism (as white-Supremacy); what it is and how it works, everything else you understand will only confuse you".--Neely Fuller
“The only form of ‘functional’ Racism that exists among people of the known universe is white-Supremacy”.—Neely Fuller
