When did we white people become so sensitive about these things?


From what I've concluded from the reactions of anything promoting or acknowledgment of black people from them, it's because they feel left out I guess. Because for once, the attention is not on them at all, and excludes them completely pretty much.


It's a case of victim envy. We want to be oppressed for some reason. But since we're the ones with power, there's no one to oppress us, so we victimize ourselves by imagining offenses against us. For as much grief as blacks get for seeing racism everywhere, whites are every bit as paranoid and insecure about race issues, if not more so.


Naw its a case of a guy like me ho has been poor his whole life and has the same advantages as the black guy down the street getting told that its my fault that 200 years ago some guys in The Netherlands decided to partner with some African land owners and start selling people LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DID. Its a case of miss-appropriated blame,
If minorities struggle its because they're poor and guess what? there are a lot of poor white people getting shit on too. Black Lives Matter is a buzz word that doesn't mean shit and detracts from the actual issue.
Yes there are cops who are abusing their power is it because they're racist? Ya maybe probably but they are racist because they are assholes meaning, they are assholes to everyone.

A good man said-- in August 1963:

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.

We cannot walk alone.
And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.
We cannot turn back.
-----
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.

Was watching the news earlier..

It seemed to be a black lives matter rally..

one of the political democratic speakers said "Black lives matter" then he said "White lives matter" then he was cut off by the whole crowd screaming at him yelling "NO"...

Anyone else think that's kinda messed up??

I mean all lives matter equally....


What I find beyond imagination is that O'mally actually apologized to the crowd for saying "All lives matter".

Not the point.
Nobody is telling you it's your fault for oppressing black people/PoC. Or that your lives don't matter. The point of "Black Lives Matter" is to really raise awareness among black victims of murder not being acknowledge, dehumanized and/or never getting justice. But it's more common with the cases of police brutality though.
Also the Netherlands partnering with African land owners and selling people isn't due to racism. (?)
Cops abusing their power is due to the fact that they even have power in the first place, not because they are racist. That can (and is also most likely) the case when dealing with minorities, but it's not always why they abuse it.
Being poor/having a tough life =/= experiences racism. That doesn't make sense.

(Under a spoiler to because I feel its a bit off topic. Also it's a lil personal. So skip this if ya want. TL;DR on the bottom.)

TL;DR
White people are just not simply oppressed because they are white.
Black people and minorities in general aren't trying to victimize themselves when discussing these issues. We really just want people to listen, and acknowledge them.
White privileged doesn't mean what you think it means. It's not meant to disregard the problems a white person has.
Also stop (and everyone else who has before) saying I'm trying to victimize myself, please.

I'm a black male from the suburbs in Florida. I've been around white and Asian people the majority of my life up until high school. I don't see myself ever going out to Rally/riot, but the debate came up about black lives matter. I'm sitting here listening to my white classmates say All lives matter,but was surprised when they didn't understand the point of it. All lives do matter, but not everyone is treated the same. Black Lives matter is a response to police brutality to under privileged black kids. If police targeted, treated, and handled the situation at hand regardless of race, I don't think this would be an issue. Another thing I was noticing is some people always feel the need to be involved i.e white people. Maybe the treatment of white people IS the same as black people, I wouldn't know because I'm not white. From my perception though white people are given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to police. For a white person to come along and say all lives matter when white people aren't even targeted to the same extent by the police is just disrespectful lols. I'm sure they understand that white lives matter, even the police think so. Why not let these people have black lives matter to advocate the need for equality.

Everyone matters, of course.. to themselves. We all are specks on the Earth, just some get more acknowledgement than others.

There have been studies on that sort of thing. The results aren't pretty. http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/releases/psp-a0035663.pdf


The white population is increasing here. Not much of a genocide.

Just to make sure everyone who sees this is aware, this is white supremacist propaganda. Miscegenation (spelled wrong in the second image) is an archaic legal term for interracial marriage. You should actually definitely be okay with interracial marriage and "demonize those opposed to it" because they're racists.

edit: shouldn't have skipped to the last page, glad to see nobody's buying into this.
