The continent of Africa is a completely separate issue, Baba. I agree that it's been sliced and diced to hell and back. But what about in the States? About the rest, we'll have to agree to disagree I suppose. And you might not shame white people but lemme tell ya- we're getting pretty good advice from OTHER white people that we should be ashamed of ourselves. Fox news... ye gods. If you can't see that Corporate America wants white Americans to be so ashamed of themselves that they're scared to say boo! then .... oh well. You're entitled to your opinion.
Why is it that every other story is about a black person committing a crime? Where are all the white people?!! What- we don't rob banks and shit? Yes. We do. But to propagate that racist bullshit in the media is what they're after and they're winning. Just stirring the pot. That's all they're doing.
"You and I will always get a job before a black person or a woman any day."
No. That is what Affirmative Action is for, Baba. We are getting stomped on to please the racial quota. Racism sucks when it's on the other foot. (And maybe that's the point?)The pendulum swings back and forth and that's life.
I don't get with my other white friends and yap about how 'great' it is to be white, and not because it would be crass to do so but because I honestly don't think about the point of even saying such a thing. It's not great. I made my life what it is every step of the way, fucks ups and all. I went to a crappy school and still managed to get my brain focused on real life. MY KIDS have gone to crappy schools(until I yanked them out two years ago to do cyber school) and it was so riddled with bureaucratic nonsense that was all about dumbing down our kids. Ridiculous. The kids needed to have their hands held through every single activity of the day. Took me a YEAR to un-school them from that crap and prove to them that they do have more common sense than they realized. The 'Nanny State' is very good at creating good little future prisoners.
If we need to find something to be angry at, let's really find out who the enemy is: corporate powers which tell you and me that we're nothing but an expendable number to be bet upon in the stock markets. THAT is one real problem plaguing African nations which is being fought but unfortunately with an unrealistic goal. The birth certificate is needed to get this, this, and this, but they're not realizing they're being thrust into a system they'll never get out of. Carrot and stick, my man. WE bought into it decades and and we've finally catching on.
