I read the article, not the publication, The Nation. Based on the article there is a lot of focus on the topic of white men acting out.
Is it me? Or are there intelligent people left around? Does it not make it racist, when someone openly and continually refers and condemns, or even bases subjects purely on racial concepts. Not just towards blacks, but towards any "race"?
I'm sick an tired of hearing white fear smear. To only hear the ones talking about it claiming they aren't racist. Look I'm not classed by whites as white, I would be Hispanic to them despite not feeling like a full Hispanic. I'm too culturally mixed to associate purely to one side or the other. I say it like that because I don't believe there is such things as race. I actually believe in science and the claim that the Human race is just that. Human. We are actually one of a very select few species of animals in this planet without a cousin species. Without actual racial diversity. We are it, the last, just human.
Hearing constant attacks by social liberals and social progressives on how whites do this, and whites do that, and whites hate these things. It's sickening already. That is the same as hearing in the old days people talking about slaves. "Oh the negros are like this and like that." Shut up already. If you aren't racist, stop obsessing over racial divides and start obsessing over cultural acceptance.
There is no race war. Only people instigating racial conflicts and any article that hails itself as a picture of acceptance but bitches about a so called racial group, is nothing more than an agitator, a racial divider and promoter of conflict based on not accepting a group of people.
To claim you are more accepting, means to accept the beliefs of those you also disagree with. Otherwise you aren't accepting at all. Just another individual with biased views you choose to practice and believe in. Acceptance is literally none biased towards anyone or anything. The minute you hold on to views and ideas that favor one side over the other. That you have open and disagree views towards anything you can not accept, like white supremacy ideals, you instantly void your self given title of being accepting of others. Or more accepting than someone else. You just literally became exactly as the people you hail yourself as being better than, by not accepting certain people's beliefs. It doesn't mean you have to believe in their views, it just means you have to accept others have them and have a right to have them regardless. Humans are not above other humans, which would instantly drop you into the belief of elite-ness and classes. That we should have classes of citizens and divide our society as not equals based on the old school ideals of entitlement.
You know how you address a problem? By not creating a new one, or agitating a current one. You bring a solution, a plan of action to meet in the middle. So far, the only thing I've seen is an attempt to replace one racist group with another, or addressing an idea with off topic concepts.
Stand Your Ground has nothing to do with race. If that is your association, you have more problems than you think. If you want to argue the merrits of a DEFENSE policy, do it based on the qualities of the policy. Not some tangent to insert your racist views in, or attempt to promote more tension and hostility. Otherwise there is a word for that, hypocrisy.
Talk about the good and the bad about it. For example: Good - Does not promote individuals to be placed at higher risk of injury or loss of life during an altercation. Won't subject up standing citizens who find themselves in the horrible situation of being injured or killed for acting out in their best interest to survive or prevent serious injuries.
Bad - may lead certain individuals to attempt using the law as a technicality to avoid criminal charges.
Notice how I presented a light view of the negative and a higher one of the possitive? That's how you approach sensibly a subject without creating conflict, aggression, or division. You present positives and negatives. If you want to be factual present recorded cases to follow up your claims. But ranting for ranting sake is purely for the goal of creating division and unrest.
Chaos is the goal of these instigators of hate. So that they can turn around and say, see told you so. Which will open the doors for them to establish their ridiculous policies aimed at control and submission. They wanted extremist to take guns to the RNC to create chaos, it failed. Instead chaos went to the biggest instigators of the two party, the DNC and they built their fence walls and censored their media to hide the chaos outside their own doors. Hypocrisy to the letter. Far from unity, far from safety, far from acceptance of all, and far from promoting a better world and lifestyle for all.
