“This Is Not a Criticism of a Black Criticism”
I married into this melee - African/Anglo - delivered a child. I married again into this melee - Asian/Anglo - delivered a second child.
To say I’ve been an avid observer, keenly aware of global racism - subterranean corporate and religious systemic abuse of minorities, pervasive stereotyping, dimensions of micro aggression, centuries - perhaps eons of the disempowerment of minorities on this gorgeous planet - would be a vast understatement.
Yes, it’s personal - but I’m white. I fly into and around everything and anything I want, anywhere, anytime I want. But my children, not so much. They have both suffered. Discrimination in all forms needs to end.
My position re: equanimity in a maladjusted world using superfluous color/class/or culture to maintain dominance - is unequivocal.
To reject consensus thinking we must collectively equate to a humanist narrative.
It’s not a war.
To describe persons by a color spectrum when we are all various shades of tan is patently retarded.
How can you go to war with a developmentally disabled dominant class. How to re-educate the fundamentally disturbed individual, self righteous and polarized by fear - is a tough one...let’s be real.
The current “wheel of power/privilege” is wanting. Wreaking of lies...wants a redesign.
It’s a polarizing era. The truth, is abundantly self-evident...it’s preposterous to argue. Yet, idiots are the biggest noisemakers.
We need a new narrative. A new teachable proof - just as we are, humanity is solvent, right where we are, all, each and every individual. Evolving. Collectively evolving.
Solution: everywhere possible expand consciousness, model humanist awareness, openly, actively stand for truth. Refuse to define/describe persons by color.
MAKE POSITIVE NOISE - BE THE CHANGE.
