Anonymous said: So you think Racism towards whites is ok
You cannot be racist towards white people. White people can literally never ever experience racism because at the end of the day they have the privilege. At the end of the day they don’t have to worry about being shot for wearing a hoodie at night. They don’t have to worry about being shot for what their culture requires them to wear. They don’t have to worry about people being suspicious of them stealing just because of the color of their skin. They don’t have to worry about being dehumanized in media for where they come from. They don’t have to suffer physical abuse just for being a minority. They don’t have to worry about their people being mass murdered in their homeland. They don’t have to worry about genocide.
A person can say “White people are shit” and guess what you still get to walk home with the privilege of finding a better job than most minorities. You still get the walk home with the privelege that you will not be suspected of crime just for minding your own business. You still walk home without the side glance, or people moving to the other side of the side walk just because you’re coming their way. That privilege cannot be taken away from you. Please educate yourself and stop being so ignorant. I have faith that one day you guys can learn to understand what this all really means and realize that there is no such thing as Racism towards whites. There is no such thing and the fight for equality is not going to end until you realize that and help make our place in society equal to yours, instead of continuing to whine and tell us we don’t have bigger problems than you do.
Do not be so ignorant to think that racism isn’t prevalent everyone including toward white people. Racism is people believing that a white cop shooting a black teenager is only because the cop was racist. People of color are now being given more opportunities and are more likely to get jobs because people think that turning the tables and putting them above,not equal to, whites is okay

Oh, bless your white heart.
Racism is people KNOWING that a white cop, who knows protocol, who knows standards and practices, who knows to what extent to exercise the Excessive Force clause, who saw an unarmed black teenager in a submissive and withdrawn position who proposed no harm to him, shot such a young man because he fit a racist profile in which the cop did not favor. And when that is reflected on the racial census of Ferguson, MI in comparison to the racial census of the people in positions of exercising law there, versus their crime rate and THAT racial census, knowing that black people there are far less represented, knowing that white people are oppressing their power and privilege, because this is all objectively measured, the picture SHOULD be clear.
And if you’re going to say that the shooting in Ferguson was anything but an extension of the white man’s racism, then you literally spit on Mike Brown, his family, and every protestor who was harmed or arrested because their racist local government refuses to convict a racist murderer because he is a reflection of the status quo that is upheld there. If you’re going to say that the officer shot that man for any other reason, after countless consistent eyewitness testimony and video and audio evidence has been submitted in regards to The People of Fergus v. Darren Wilson proving that what he did was unlawful, then I must ask you, did you reply to my friend’s ask because you wanted in on a post trend or are you really THAT ignorant and ill informed.
And SINCE I’m on the subject, how dare you.
And SINCE you’re talking shit, let’s see YOUR evidence. Give me examples where people of color are given more opportunities to advance and excel in America, because let me goddamn tell you something, as a PoC my damn self? I have yet to see a good goddamn thing.
Give me an example of when a Person of Color was put above a white person in any situation. Hell, not even our black president can get into a golf course because he was black and denied by white people and he’s our Commander in Chief, so PLEASE. PLEASE. Let’s HEAR IT since you’re SO KNOWLEDGEABLE.
And in any part of your rebuttal, if you ever get parched, I got you a drink.
Because you just don’t get it.
Freedom of speech. I have my right to my opinion and as do you. It’s not racist to expect all races to be equal and not say that whites are the only ones who are racist. No one should say that Michael Brown is guilty or Darren Wilson is guilty until all evidence is laid out and charges are pressed. At this point both are innocent. I do not think that anyone needed to die though but you don’t understand that Darren Wilson will be in trouble and most likely out of a job and possibly in jail for murder because our country is so against police brutality, but that won’t be for a few months. It is wrong to automatically assume that it is racism just because Wilson is white and Brown is black. It might be the case it is racism but it should not be assumed automatically. You want automatic resolutions but that can’t happen because our country makes it so no one is tried wrongly. Everyone should be treated equally whether you’re white or of color; that includes treating someone better or special because of their race or treating a white person below a colored because we should all be equal; not anyone below or above. So do not call me racist.
The typical argument by white people is that all the evidence isn’t presented yet. What evidence do we not know about? What evidence would a police department, who released a video claiming Brown robbed a convenience store and used it in an attempt to sway public opinion to the side of Officer Wilson, keep quiet about or fail to release? Your mind is clouded, because you don’t want to see the truth.
You don’t want to recognize there is a possibility Brown did nothing to warrant the amount of force used against him. You don’t want to recognize Ferguson PD would use any opportunity to protect Officer Wilson by releasing anything to persuade the public what he did was justified. They constantly tell Officer Wilson’s side of the story hoping it can have some affect on public opinion, but it isn’t working. Why? Because the evidence presented does not support theirs, and they have no hidden evidence to support it either.
You don’t want to recognize in this country people protect cops when they violate the rights of minorities (mainly their right to live), but would never support cops who violates the right of people (mainly whites) to bare arms against an intrusive government. If this is not a prime example of how racism still exist in America to favor whites and not advance blacks for you, then there is no helping your clouded mind.
You don’t want to recognize the justice system is not working in a manner where it would work equally to find justice for a dead young black man versus a dead young white man. You don’t want to recognize the prosecutor in the case is bending the justice system in a way to help Officer Wilson get away with killing Brown. You may ask, “how?”
He, as the prosecutor, has every right to directly charge Officer Wilson on his own, but he declined to. He decided to take the issue and evidence to a grand jury. Many people claim this is the court system working properly, but it is not. He also has the right to decide whether to request the grand jury indicts Wilson on certain charges. He has not. It may still seem to you the justice system is still working.
The fact is this prosecutor knows his case history. He knows he has received over two dozen cases where officers were involved in unjustified shootings. He has not filed charges in a single one of those cases. He has taken five to grand juries. In each case, he did not request a grand jury indict each individual with specific charges. Which in most cases he carries to a grand jury, except those, he does request. In four of the five cases the grand jury has failed to indict.
You can probably claim that is just how the justice system works, but in a country where our laws are so obscure, confusing, and too hard to successfully interpret without the help of an individual with legal background a grand jury will not understand the spectrum of charges they are capable of indicting on. If you don’t believe the prosecutor, with many ties to police officers and whose father was killed by a black man, isn’t banking on the ignorance of the jurors; you, my friend, are too ignorant to be commenting on this subject.
