@Oigit dang I’m so sorry for you that to happen to you. Racism in this country is disgusting and needs to be eliminated.
@Virgo31 that's the thing, all of my negative experiences with people that can be called prejudice be it with police and citizens where examples of race on race prejudice. I'm so white that I probably glow in the dark and the people I ended up having issue with where white as well. Prejudice against members of the same group is very much a real with. You can boil it down to people having an attitude that a person isn't part of the group for various reasons. A prime example is people saying that a person isn't (insert race here) because of arbitrary reasons. Typically the reasons are because they are not acting like a member of (insert race here) "should." Things like that are the reason I'm so quick to push people to stop putting groups before humanity. By putting our humanity before any group, we create a level ground that we can use to create equality in all aspects and humanity will truly moving forward. Moving humanity forward should be the goal for everyone. Because when humanity moves forward no-one is left behind.
All white people are the same? That’s the most racist thing I’ve ever heard in my life
@Conspiracy_Theorist Do you know how to read? when did I say that?
Nah I don’t read, I assume because I’m a filthy liberal.
I’m a Liberal... we just assume before posting opinions we don’t read. We just push our falsified narratives
@Conspiracy_Theorist Okay what does that have to do with anything? Are you that close minded to think all liberals are the same? If you're trying to get a rise out me or something, I don't identify with either party...
How is it close minded when it’s a fact?
I’ve seen black people hate on other black people that are doing well for themselves aswell

Yes. In Turkey we got thousands of Africans and most of them are happy. We treat them so Good unlike American dogs.
Also. As a Turkish person, I have lots of kurdish friends too. Lots of kurdish people married Turkish people here.
Bu black I mean anything African it doesn't matter. African American. African french. African African. It does not matter at all. We Turkish people are not racist in general.
I am quite certain you don't mean anything African. You don't mean Moroccans, Egyptians, Libyans, etc.The way you use the term "Black" shows the same weird confusion Americans invented. I would say, just go back to your Turkish culture and learn what your people historically have used as a metric for deciding what makes for a social group.There is no truth in race. Race is simply an opinion of the lay people in America who call themselves "White". They don't even listen to the opinion of "White" scientists.
You know nothing about it. It is a culture and a language thing. In Turkish when we use the word "zenci" it means nigga in English, but not in a racist or a bad way, we mean black - African people. It does not matter if he/she is from the US or Europe or Africa, we use the word zenci. And it doesn't create any political problem here. So you can't understand us exactly since you are not raised here. But we Turkish people like Africans in general and never did bad things to them. So how would you ask this question? Because of the culture and language difference, we can not understand each other clearly. But obviously African American people have problems in the US since the beginning. If you are an African American, you can share your experiences with me. However of course you have some advantages there too, such as American English is your first language and because of the USA itself, you created lots of singers, rappers, politic activists and actors globally which got millions of fans in the world. If you were born in Africa, you couldnt do that. And most African americans got better lives than actual Africans at the moment.
You don't understand. I am not Turkish nor am I trying to become Turkish. I gave you a simple illustration and you have not responded to it. Again, I am quite certain when you talk about "Black" people, YOU DO NOT MEAN MOROCCANS, ALGERIANS, EGYPTIANS, LIBYANS, ETC. Do you care to respond to that?Please?The point is you do not mean Africa or Africans. You are talking about something specific. You just never noticed it until now.
I don't even know what you are trying to say. By black, I literally meant African people, especially African American people in the USA. Why would I call arabs, black? They are arab. Why do they use the word black then? In Turkish we also use the word siyahi for that people which means some sort of blackish
Why do you keep saying Africa when Libya is in Africa.Please tell me why.Are these people Africans?
I am asking you then what do you call for zenci people in English? What my title should be then according to your terms? How would you ask my question? What are these people, I meant these people:
I asked a simple question. Why do you keep avoiding it? Are Libyans. . . Africans? Are Moroccans, African?
Sort of African but like arabic. Not a black-afro. Not a zenci
It's like you are having a brain fart. In order for me to understand what you are saying, you have to use terms consistently and be clear about what you mean.I am pretty certain, when you talk about African. . . you don't North Africa. So what was the big deal with taking several days to say. . . that you excluded them when you talked about "Black" people in Turkey?I don't understand.
Since you don't know Turkish, you won't understand me mr. smart ass shit. Then I mean South African? Like 2pac, 50 cent, nigeria president, obama and laurence fishburne. What word do you use for these people then in the world?
I am sure it is tougher for black people in the US. While some black folks have some advantages there, others are still struggling. Racism always sucks
You’re only disadvantaged because you elect corrupt leadership.
And those corrupt leaders then go on to infect your minds with the myth of “systemic racism”
@Jack9949 We ain’t elect trump.
What’s that supposed to mean?
Are you so naive you don’t notice who the true racists have been this entire time? (The Democrats)
@Jack9949 he’s about as corrupt as you can get. He has like maximum corruptness. Majority of black people did not vote for him.
How is a “corrupt” leader one who drastically cuts my taxes? 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️
@Jack9949 Trump has done all sorts of shady shit from before and during his time in office. His priority isn’t to help the Americans people, it’s to cut taxes for himself so he can keep more money in his pockets.
Actually both me and everyone in my family noticed signifant reductions in our taxes.
@Jack9949 I’m not saying it isn’t true that you all had reduced taxes. I’m saying that it was for his own personal gain.
That isn’t making any sense
The money stays in my pocket instead of going to the government’s
@Jack9949 why isn’t it?
Yes, I’m aware of that.
Your not making any sense rn. How is he corrupt?
@Jack9949 He literally allowed immigrant children to die in cages.
He ended that Obama era policy though. It was part of a larger policy he continued without fully knowing what it was
@Jack9949 It existed in the Obama era, but there were different rules about who could be taking into custody and how long they stayed. Trump allowed kids to stay indefinitely without proper care and literally left them to die.
Actually, neither party really cares about black and minority communities at heart. Many Republican leaders refuse to see issues that occur amongst black communities and the leaders they elect often have racist undertones. Many Democratic leaders piggy-back off of black communities to simply win the election and don't come up with real policies to help us. When it comes to voting for the best presidential candidate, black people are forced to choose the lesser evil. To be honest parties need to be done away with.
@coilygirl2001 I agree that since the Civil Rights Movement neither party has done anything for black people but Trump certainly has
Yea while still being demeaning in the way he addresses the black community. It's crazy how people will condone the way he acts sometimes. Besides I haven't seen a policy from him that's helped us. If your talking about the tax cuts that benefited the wealthy and middle class families. Majority of the black community relies on some type of government funding. So while it may benefit working class black families, majority of black families are suffering even more. I live in a middle class family but I haven't had insurance or any way to pay for my health care since Obama Care. I have to rely on myself and over-the counter products when I get sick, because it's hard for me to be seen by a doctor. I'm not downing the tax cuts because I understand people want to keep the money they worked hard for, but it's really a give and take.
@Jack9949 And as far as black people voting in corrupt leadership. Minorities make up around 30% of the population. Considering those who can't vote, don't have adequate citizenship, or are in prison, there's not that much room for us to make change in office. We have to rely on the majority, white people, in to make best decision for us. So it's really YOU guys who elect corrupt leadership🙃
Girl, I got time today😂
@coilygirl2001 Actually Detroit and Baltimore are both black majority cities with corrupt leaders.
@Jack9949 Sir I'm talking about the president and the countries demographics, since this is what the conversation is about. Wow! two cities that have predominately African American populations. The best they can do if they decide to unify is to get a sure vote on the mayor. However, black communities need more than just a small city change, we need it own a national level. Most mayors don't even have the power to create laws and policies. Everyone (not just blacks) in Illinois and Maryland that have eligibility to vote can vote for representatives, and Illinois and Maryland, like most states, have a predominately white voter's population. (Illnois- 28% eligible voters rate for minorities; Maryland- 40% eligible voters rate for minorities) So my statement still stands, the black community along with other minority communities don't have the influence to choose the leaders we want single handedly, even if we unify. Only do white individuals have this capability if they unify. And if you don't believe me you can review the eligible voter demographics in each state on Census. gov
@coilygirl2001 I disagree. I know black people living in white neighborhoods who are quite happy and content in life.
@Jack9949 they’re a minority.
@Jack9949 I never said there weren't🤨. Can you read sir?
@coilygirl2001 You said that it takes black representation to satisfy the needs of a black person. That is racist. Obama did almost nothing for blacks compared to Trump.
@Jack9949 lol That's not even what I said but ok. You're just saying random stuff at this point. You also need to look up the term racist because I'm far from it. If anything your little statement about African Americans voting for corrupt leaders was racist. I'm sitting here speaking legitimate facts and you can't name one policy that Trump created that directly benefited the black community. Never did I say "it takes black representation to satisfy the needs of a black person". I'm all for anyone , regardless of race, religion, and gender, getting in office. My whole point was that black people are not the ones picking the "corrupt" leaders at least not without help from white individuals. So if you're going to call out an entire race for "picking corrupt leaders." call out YOURS first, because African Americans don't have the singlehanded power to vote for someone and put them in office. by the way, no politician is an honest politician, so it's a bit impossible to pick someone who's "corrupt." And nor did I say anything about Obama either. You don't even know if supported him or not, you're just assuming. All I have to say is your ignorance is showing, so you might want to cover it up🤷🏽♀️
@coilygirl2001 “you can't name one policy that Trump created that directly benefited the black community.”-Yes I can. School choice and opportunity zones, historical funding for HBCU’s.2) Your racism is only showing more now. “ My whole point was that black people are not the ones picking the "corrupt" leaders at least not without help from white individuals”In other words it is always the fault of white people whenever something goes badly. Even in cities where white people are the minority.
@Jack9949 Your point was that black people elect corrupt leadership. I am stating that it is in no way possible for blacks to single handily vote for leaders. So therefore the "corrupt" leadership you are referring too is not simply caused by blacks. Do you lack reading comprehension? Stop trying to bring up the race card when you literally just stated blacks vote for corrupt leadership. By the way this is the definition of racism since you seem to lack the knowledge about what it is:Racism1. prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a MINORITY2. the belief that different races possess distinct characteristics, abilities, or qualities, especially so as to DISTINGUISH them as INFERIOR or SUPERIOR to one another.I absolutely love white people. some of the sweetest people I ever met are white. I just don't stand for the b. s that's currently coming from you and other people just like you.
@coilygirl2001 well I guess your not racist then. Its just most black people elect Democrats (big government) who generally tend to be corrupt, especially at levels of local leadership.
No. In Turkey no one does racism to African folks here. We always help them. Racism in America sucks as fuck
2pac was so handsome
Most of them got bigger pros of course because of the advantages of the US itself. They live better than actual Africans
Its the truth
