It was founded on lies and the belief that people should not be held accountable for their own actions.

A black lives matter leader made a request of us privileged whities! The list is so absurd you would think its from the onion. If your white then you should be ashamed of yourself while reading this \s

This was said in response to Charleston

Some things I’m thinking about that should change (in that Southern, black grandmama voice):

1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.

2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.

4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

7. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.

8. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.

9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.

10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

Chanelle Helm is cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville.

If they're so butthurt over not having "privilege" then they can hop on the first flight out to Africa, where they have their own racial privilege.

Wow, well then ...since you are so butthurt over his want of those privileges than you can hop on the first flight and go to hell ...where you came from.

You know, the funny thing about everything he wrote ...your ancestors actually did it and everything.

I mean everything.

And some of those sort of laws aren't even a hundred years old. SO yes, what he ask for is ridiculous, but your ancestors didn't think it was during their time ......

In communities across the country, property owners signed agreements called restrictive covenants. These contracts barred African Americans and sometimes other groups-including Jews, Asians, and Latinos-from many neighborhoods. In this covenant from Arlington County, Virginia, in the 1940s, the purchasers agreed never to sell their house to "persons of any race other than the white Caucasian Race."

Yeah, he wants it for free since back then, we couldn't even pay for it.

Anyway, I am done with my can't stand your tail moment.

To quote San:

People like you should be burning in hell.

That will be good enough for me.

And whoever came up with this thread ....they should join you as well.

No one posts the ravings of the KKK or any of those idiotic white people, but you want to post that so you can beat your chest and make your wussy tail seem so great. You know when I make the mistake of thinking that we have finally got you dumb people over that crazy stick, here you come again proving once and time again have to watch your back around your types.

Not strong
Not smart
But cruel and manipulative

Evil in carnage

Think of the most evil, repulsive, vile thing anyone could be.
Then multiply it by 10X
and you get the people who rant and rave about what he wrote.

That alone is enough to confirm the "clickbait" troll intent of this thread, which encouraged several blatantly offensive racist responses. Regardless of what your intent was, such threads do serve (as another user stated) "an agenda to spread filtered race-baiting."

Some others took time to point out the context of these these statements, which is important and meaningful for this discussion, but many folks, including you, have failed to acknowledge those. I know that some people would still have a problem even with the more limited scope of the original context of the list, but that isn't what many are responding to.

Therefore I have closed this thread.
