I'll never understand why some folks get so angry when they see a person of color standing up for their beliefs, and doing whatever they can to uplift their own kind. Why does that anger some so much, in what way is that affecting you that you feel the need to lash out? There really us only one explanation....
I'll never understand why some folks refuse to accept the fact that POC have been dealt an unfair hand in this country even to this day, when there is volumes of evidence to that suggests just that.
We don't have to dwell on the pain of the past as long as we're working together for a brighter future. But that would mean equal treatment for all, and that's just asking a bit much.
So what makes you so angry? If cops were out there shooting unarmed white males, I guarantee I'd be out there marching shoulder to shoulder with you in protest, why can't you do the same for us? Because it doesn't affect you?because that's the.way it's always been, and why fix something that ain't broke, right?
This board is a microcosm of our state and country, and it's truly sad, in 2021 we are more divided than ever. And quite frankly, it's about to get much worse in a couple years.
But what's really sad to me is that out of the 100's of posters on this site, only a handful had the courage to speak up in defense of Colin and my post, regardless if they agreed with his or my message or not.
I'm sure you'll have a field day with this so have at it, hope it makes you feel better. I won't be replying because I won't be reading your responses. You couldn't possibly say anything more that would suprise or offend me that hasn't already been said. But I will leave you with this.
My 6 year old grandson told me yesterday that a little white girl on his bus told him and I quote...
"your black because your skin is dark, mine is not so I'm white, white people are better than black people". He asked me if that was true. I wanted to cry.
6 years old and he's already having encounters with racism.. now I'm sure that little girl didn't know any better, probably just repeating what she learned at home. But my grandson will forever be scarred from that incident, and every incident in the future.
And that VA49er is opression. Now you know. I have no delusion of hope you'll understand, but you've been whining for an example, now you have one...
So I'll sign off and move on and leave you to your right wing Alt Right circle jerk. Enjoy your evening....
Our entire conversation have you asked what my ethnicity is? No you haven't, you just assume who I am based on my feelings about CK. You know what they same about assuming.
And since you say you're black or I believe you said 1/2 black but you say you'retreated as black, how about answering a few questions?
What gender and race is most often shot by police in the US?
What race commits the largest number of violent crimes against the black population of the US?
Please don't google it, just answer what you believe to be true.
