Blacks don't have privlidge? There's no affirmative action for white people!
But superior at not being pulled over by the police is true, because we don't cause as much crime as they do.
I agreeedI felt sorry for them to be honest...to be that ignorant...

Do you mean the actual term that has been agreed upon for many years (and I know that both of us were taught)or the term that had to be redefined this year to meet political narrative?
I mean to be honestBlack people are superior atmaking fried chicken and eating watermelonsALSO they are superior at being loud and obnoxious... always screaming at each other... they are very good at speaking in a vernacular that appears uneducated along with speaking in vernaculars that sound quite uneducated...THEY have always been great at committing the highest crime rates per capita.. be it murder (over 50% of murders in the USA alone)... and stealing things (committing more thefts than any racial group in the USA)...They are pretty good at playing basketball though, and running track!! so there's thatHistorically they were really good at enslaving each other (making up 90% slavers of the Atlantic Slave Trade.. then selling off to Europeans... same applied to the Arab Slave Trade).. along with near constant wars.. involving children (even in the modern day)... they also had a period of time of invade other territories (if we include Northern Africans).. and brutal dictatorships...I guess they are REALLY REALLY GOOD AT VIOLENCE? ... did I mention really good at stealing? EVER seen those BLM riots? Black people LOVE to steal... my grandmother always said... BE CAREFUL AROUND BLACKS... Because if you dont watch your wallet.. it will disappear...OH!! AND AIDS!!! they were pretty good at catching that... must have been due to their sexual desires or somethingg...you knew for a fact in Black communities you would have higher aids rates (and largely due to their lack of education maybe? OR I guess they are just always horny and jumping on each other like rabbits)...OH! and Black fathers are really good at leaving their children...Plus they just smell funny, and like I said... they really love their friend chicken...THEY DO cook the best friend chicken for sure... and they ARE LOUD. did i mention they are loud and obnoxious...GET THE POINT? :P
^ point iswe both know for a factif a white person were to say the above thingsit would create an outcryand would clearly be regarded as racism (and rightfully so) We once understood racismI dont think we do anymoreSome racism is acceptable in society.. to the point we don't even wanna classify it for what it is..
^ my thoughts exactlyI am happy with the Dislike/Like ratioit gives me hopebut it sad seeing people try to push this stuff off as being "giving black people a voice"when ultimately all it does is spread racismand a type of racism that is accepted by the mainstream
Sarcasm or notI don't think if a White person were to make the same statements it would be considered acceptable.
Because of historical context. Whites are doing this to minorities. Jesus.
To be entirely honest, if this was the 1950s youd have a good point... for clearly there was great prejudiced practiced in those days (especially in certain parts of the country)But even I was a child minorities played such roles (Blade, Spawn, Steele, Storm etc)but naturally there would be far more White people depicted as heroes in film/tv.. there are far more white people in this country. .. they make up the majority of viewers... therefore a very obvious domination in film (The same would be applied to Chinese in Chinese films... British in British films.. Indians in Indian films... Iranians in Iranian film... etc.. haha)but that asidethere is RACISM.. clearly... and racism that is practiced on both sidesTAKE it form someone who worked for several years in a Black schools... plenty of Blacks hate White people... plenty of Blacks have racist perspectives of White people...BUT on the flipside.. MOST Black people are decent people. just like anyone else.Howeverputting out videos like this does nothing but create a mentality that ultimately leads to more chaos.. racial tension... etcBecause much of it is based on racial perspectives that are not really true to history (take it from someone with a BA in History)Attributing the worlds problems to the White people... from slavery... to violence... to theft.. ETCis a gross exaggerationJUST AS... the majority of the things stated in this videoIF applied in reverse.. White on Black.. would be considered Racist (and rightfully so)Racism is Racismand this video wasn't meant for sarcasm... or comedy...it was meant to disrupt.. sow chaos... create tension... in an environment where many such instigators already existand I think you know the difference
You can at least see there’s a domino effect from slavery to today right? And unlike Native Americans, we never really addressed it? Blacks have been starting from ten feet behind the starting line.
To be entirely honestly with you, I am unsure of the validity of that argument. Current Policies can have an influence on the wellbeing of a people.. but that can quickly change in short notice (take for example Zimbabwe, or South Africa... where once powerful White minorities.. were quickly thrown into a much weaker position due to government policy). Yes, we can see current policies that have a more profound influence on certain groups than others, but I don't necessarily view them as being "Racially" motivated. ^ the illusion comes from the ideology that any group is perfectly equal to another... We often create artificial standards to understand "Equality".. For example.. Equal Pay... We hear this quite often in regards to Males and Females.. and indeed it is true that women statistically make less than men... but its less about lack of equal pay, than it is about female and male choice.. or natural differences (there are simply careers that are male dominated.. and others that are female dominated... WE often only concentrate on the careers that are male dominated as "sexist".. while ignoring the female dominated fields... which shows a great flaw in the ideology)...I think the same thing applies to blacksBUT ALSOthe influence on culture
We can see this for example with certain Asian cultures (which typically outperform Whites in most every category in the USA)Do Asians make more money because the country is Asian Supremacist? and RACIST against White people?No.. its largely due to variables that influence success.. especially foundational onesFamily... Education... Work Ethic... etc The fact is.. the Black family is very broken... and this immediately creates an environment for poverty.MANY blacks have a culture that tends to be "anti education" ... even amount family units. (that is not to say all black families care little about education... but that generally the culture itself is quite anti-education)When you couple a lack of family structure... with a lack of educational achievementon top of of other cultural influences (gang violence, teenage pregnancy... etc)It is a set up for poverty and failureCAN the Government help?YES to an extentthere have already been programs to give Blacks a great leap forward (Affirmative Action for example... which was even outlawed in California in 1996) But even then... the outcomes were questionable.Let us be serious and understand that from the period of Civil Rights in the 1960s.. to 2020there has actually been a "Fall" of the Black community into disarray and I have great doubt that Civil Rights was a failure... during an era when there was CLEAR discrimination being practiced in many parts of the USASooo I will be honest and sayI THINK Liberals (and I including myself in that category... for I am a Liberal... and a big Bernie supporter).. put toooo much emphasis on the Domino Effect of Slavery...and less emphasis on cultural attitudes... and issues that influence the black community todayand I honestly i dont see how a video like the one posted can have a positive influence on the black community (or really anyone)
Have you benefited from your father’s success? Has your father benefited from his father’s?
Me?Nobecause I never met my fatherand as far as I know from himHe didn't either... because his father was an abusive drunkand my father spent most of his time in jailhaha
Your psychology is becoming clearer to me. But think about the rest of us who did benefit from our fathers. And their fathers father, etc. “Who your father is” is the sole variable to see if someone will be successful.
I would disagree. IN THE IMMEDIATE HISTORY you could have an argumentYour fathers inheritance (whatever that might mean) does not necessitate the wealth of your grandchildren.Because, so many factors can come to be applied within such a short timeBe it government policiesBe it war... Be it death... or loss of inheritance to another family (perhaps through marriage)... Or perhaps to another corporation. etc etc.. the variables are endless... life is far more complex than that.The assumption that because my great great great great ancestor was rich.. or poor.. or a slave... .. that I will be so far behind.. or so far ahead.. implies that modern policies have no influence on the outcome of peoples success (and therefore there isn't much of a reason to try)Yet we see entire social classes destroyed while others rise within a whim.It Ignores the factors of the generations in betweenthe Millennial Generation for example did not inherit the great economic progress of the Baby Boomers.. and therefore their foundation and economic realities have been FARRR different... Hence the reason many still live at home with family... or will likely seem themselves as low income earners in comparison to previous generations.I for one, WILL NOT.. see the wealth and ease of my grandparents (who were able to buy a decent 2 story house when they were in theirs 30s... off a modest salary for the day... ).. Because the economic realities of 2020. are not the same as the 1970s. Variables of your success go well beyond your father or your grandfatherthey include the political/social realities of the day (which always change)the access to resources (which is never a universal)Work Ethic, Upbringing, Friends, Family, Education, teh CHOICES we makeetcthe list is quite literally endless.I really don't buy into the idea to be honestIT HAS ITS PLACEbut the reliance on it is so superficial.. that its clear nothing will ever be achieved. when it comes to real success
Of course I’m talking macro stats, but sorry, success is primarily based on parents. If your father went to college, has a good job, has money for extra curricular shit. You’re not seeing how important that is.
I somehow watched all of itbut now I require surgery on both my eyes and earsand somehow im pregnantand im a mano. o
What do you mean?
What do you want them to say white people are superior at?
Haha, that wasn't the point of the post.The question was if you would consider most of the statements they give as having clear racist perspectives?
The question in its self was a race baiting question they intentionally made this video to upset white people
PreciselySoas I askedwould you consider it racism
I do not no there is no right answer to that question and technically speaking a minority can’t be racist just biased
So can you be racist against Blacks in Africa?
No you can’t but you can be racist against whites in Africa because they are the minority
Seriously as a White manif I move to Japanwould I then be able to say what I wantand do what I wantand avoid being called racist?I might be moving there soonconsidering id be a minority
To be honest with youits a very ridiculous perspectiveand not a helpful oneBlacks and Whites in the USA are just as capable of being racist to each othereven the idea of "White Privilege" ignores the reality of economic realities of the USA per capita (many groups outperform White People... because by standard... including immigrants from Africa).
You would not be racist there because you would be considered a minority did they not teach you this on school about the inability to be racist as a minority because you can’t suppress
By definition I can’t agree but have a great day
"Oppress" is the word you are looking forand noBecause "White Privilege"and "Racism"has largely been changed in the past 5 or 6 yearsWhen I attended schoolRacism simply meant the the belief of a race being inferior (or yours being superior)Or holding racial stereotypes that were negative and detrimental to a groupthe NEW definition of Racismdid not exist in those daysi didn't exist while I received my BA in History eithertodays standard is largely a political narrative
Looooooooooooool if you say so but okay you’re racist then every country sorry I told you different based on what I was taught when I was in college
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52993306example of thatand thank you for calling me a racistit shows to go you how the word has lost meaning
You literally asked if it was cool to go to Japan and be racist...
it was a sarcastic statementbecause by definitionI could not be racist in JapanI could wear a KKK uniform Kenya.. and NOT possibly be outed as racistbecause I would be (by todays standard) literally incapable of being a racist.. for being a minorityits like saying I can be a Hitler lover and NEO Nazi.. and Anti Semitic.. and move to Israel.. and they couldnt realistically call me any of the above.. because I would be a minorityit goes along with things like "if you dont date trans.. you are transphobic". . or if a woman isn't willing to screw another woman she is homophobic but its impossible for a lesbian to be prejudiced against straight women.. Or impossible for a trans person to be prejudiced (because they ultimately are allowed to make their choice of their own sexualities).. but others can'tsee how ridiculous that is?
You seem like you have a lot of hate and anger in your heart though and are looking for reason to be be mad at black people and I rather not be the black person you choose to let your rage out on though but I hope you have a better day and don’t let these race bait videos get to you
^ and that is exactly the problemI bring up the flaws of the perspectiveand its immediately"You must hate black people"WHICH even if I returned by sayingI work in a largely black school.. have largely black friends...you would say "Who cares.. you are still racist"and this is why.. even as a liberal (and massive Bernie supporter) I have a serious time taking many Social movements seriously today.
I never said you hate black people...
It’s clear that your just angry and I don’t want to be on the receiving end of that anger
The fact is.. I am merely mentioning flaws in the perspectives being pushed todaybe it White privilege or fragilitythe new concepts of racism^ or similar standards being held when it comes to the LGBTQ community or women.because many of them are EXTREMELY flawedbut theyve become mainstream over the past couple of yearsand its a shame
Just because I disagree with youdoesn't make me angry^ that is another issue todaythe inability to have a discussion.. where both parties disagreewithout it being assumed its "Anger" or some other form of emotionthis is a conversationits a discussion with people of different view points
You’re being aggressive and kinda gaslighting. It feels like you really want a argument dude
If you dont want to talk you dont have toas I statedI am merely pointing out the flaws in many of the perspectives you suggested.. and the perspectives I've seen commonly added to themyou seem like you want out of this conversationthen go aheadthanks for talking! :)
It seems to me that it’s not really a conversation or a debate to be had just based on how aggressive you are being I would be open to a conversation but I can tell that you aren’t open minded and your mind is made up so I see no point
once againdiscussing points of an argument i disagree withis not a lack of open mindedness ^ and even implying it suggests you lack the open mind
Discussing isn’t the issue that made me feel that way the aggression is but okay
You interpret aggression on the basis of my disagreement Or because of my age/educational background (for example when we spoke about how the term Racism has changed over the past few years.. and when I was younger that definition did not exist)This is not aggressionSimply because its something that goes counter to your perspectivesdoes not mean its immediately hostile^ and THAT was something I was attempting to bring to you... as a clear sign of how society has largely been going in the wrong direction in terms of race.. religion.. sexuality.. etc...Its not as if equality didn't exist when I was a kid (I am only 6 years older than you haha)its that groups that use to be Fringe elements when I was in college (which was 2009 to 2013) have not taken over the mainstreamit was something you were clearly uncomfortable with.. and felt a though it was 'aggression"We have become far too emotional and defensiveand take any form of dissent as attackits why we are largely incapable of discussion todayI was discussion points I disagree withand you automatically jumped into a tirade of me being aggressive and wanting to pick fights^ thats not how the real world works.
Lmfao if you so but I don’t agree and still feels like you are looking for someone to argue with I just don’t want to agrue or debate something if someone is firm in their beliefs
As I said.. it fine you disagreeI was merely stating why I believe you are wrongand I why I believe many of the movements today are misguidedIf you want to exit this conversation so badI have you the chance (I did say goodbye and thanks for talking with me did I not?)
I attempted to end the conversation way before then and you continued the conversation sorry I didn’t leave when you dismissed me XD
HAHAHAyou are dismissed-gives you a salute-
After scrolling through your page though you seem to make a lot of problematic race post anyway
if truth is problematicthen we do have a problemhahahaha
Its Lieutenant Colonel Mr Happy Pants too you PRIVATE!
Just because you feel your opinion is correct doesn’t make you correct
But I’m going to dismiss myself before I say something 🤭
I dont form such perspectives through opinionsbut through data/evidence
see ya :)thanks for the conversation again
You need new data that’s a little less 🤭 nvm I’m going
HAHA if Government and NGO data is no longer a relevant source of dataOr liberal groups like the Washington Post (for example, their police violence records)then I assume the data you mean is personal opinionthen yaid assume im not good at giving that type of data
