Seriously, any time I mention the problems black people have to put up with, I'm blasted and treated as if I'm a monster for it, even when I don't say things that are inflammatory, even when I use straight up facts, even fucking statistics? What, are we not allowed to discuss our issues like normal humans? Oh wait, I forgot, we're not human, we're "black". What's so wrong with what I've done, huh? What's so wrong about wanting to protect my people when they need me, wanting to protect them from a world that hates and fears them and has always wanted to see them in chains? I just want them to be safe, I don't want my people to be in chains anymore.

I enjoy discussion if that's what you really want but a discussion is a frank exchange of views, not one person preaching and the other listening and being told they have nothing valid to add because they 'will just never understand'.
Statistics are not above criticism. You can make statistics say just about anything if you torture them.
I don't know a lot of white people who hate and fear black people generally, more like they find the behavior of of a lot of black people uncongenial and just prefer not to be around those sorts of black people. They don't like to be around white people who act like that either. It's a curious thing, I've always found blacks from Africa or even the Caribbean much easier company than blacks from the US. So I don't think it's the skin color, it's the culture that keeps you from being better accepted by whites.0
