No race of people should be generally characterized or stereotyped by what some of their race did that was evil or wrongful attitudes entertained toward others. Otherwise, consistency and fairness would demand the same be done to all races; and, surely by now, we know both good and evil exist in all races.
A most prolific form of hate speechbased on negatively stereotyping a whole race of peopleis the most ignored. Racial prejudice involves depicting a race of people negatively. This is why any and all races of people possess those of its race who are racially prejudiced. It is not simply related to who has power, as some profess. The United States is proof it isnt related merely to power, as there are Americans of all races in positions of leadership and power. How can we forget weve had a bi-racial President who basically claimed only his black parentage? What about generals, admirals, Supreme Court judges, congressional men and women, governors, mayors of cities, police chiefs, and more? They all hold power over others of diverse races.
When politicians, the news media, or black writers or speakers address articles or public communications specifically and only to white Americansas if all white Americans think alike raciallyimploring or challenging them to change their perspectives or attitudes, that is hate speech. Its hate speech because it attributes to every white American a negative trait as endemic specifically to their race rather than recognizing their diversity and individualism.
Consider people of diverse races. Do they all perceive or think alike based on skin color or physical features? Think black Africans (As North Africans are considered white AfricansBerbers and Arabs). Do ethnic Bantus, Congolese, Eritreans, Ethiopians, Ghanaians, Kenyans, Sudanese, or Tanzanians perceive or think alike because they are of the same race? Think Asians. Do ethnic Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Laotians, Mongolians, or Vietnamese perceive or think alike because they are of the same race? Its fairly certain, the unanimous answer would be, No. Even within each separate group, people perceive and think differently. Think Europeans. The same is true of ethnic European or European-descendant Americansall of the same race. Do British, Croatians, Germans, Italians, Russians, Slavs, Swiss, Ukrainians perceive or think alike? Again, the unanimous answer is No. They do not perceive or think alikeespecially about race.
Besides differences in culture and ethnicity, white Americans differ in religion or non-religion, in political allegiance or position, or values, as well as great ranges of timeframes of ancestral immigration to the United States. It is not impossible to consider the majority of white Americans descend from immigrants who came after the abolishment of slavery. It is also not impossible to realize a majority did not live where Jim Crow laws were enactedmostly in the South.
Additionally, no race of people should be generally characterized or stereotyped by what some of their race did that was evil or wrongful attitudes entertained toward others. Otherwise, consistency and fairness would demand the same be done to all races; and, surely by now, we know both good and evil exist in all races.
What drives the concept of including all white Americans into a negatively stereotyped race when addressed generally and specifically about race? Sadly, the only possible answer is racism itself, promoted by hate and communicated by hate speech. Isnt this the very same effort that has been nobly exerted to free black Americans from experiencingnegative stereotyping? To resist implying only negative traits to an entire race of people is deemed to be just, equitable, and non-racist by those who hold a high standard of respect and dignity for all people? Addressing judgmentally all white Americans as having issues with race is one of the only forms of hate speech that is not censored.
Its time to put to rest the black vs. white, white vs. black preoccupation with one another. In case it hasnt been noticed, America is not just black and white. No, we arent simply the black and white keys of a piano. We have become a beautiful masterpiece of art. America is one of the most beautifully colorful, multi-racial nations in the world. This preoccupation with two races ignores the reality of todays America. The politicians and the media can do much to alleviate and bury this falsely promoted enmity based on racial hatred if willing by ceasing and censoring the usage of white Americans when addressing race issues. Neither black Americans nor white Americans represent monolithic perceptions or thought. We shouldnt be treated as if we are monolithic. That treatment is based on a grave and huge falsehoodeven what could be called a myth.
Its time to bury a most prolific form of hate speech that is ignored and refuse to apply it to any other race. This isnt only for the sake of white Americans; its for the sake of all Americans. If we achieve this, we will have won another round for justice and equality. Good-bye to another form of racismhate speech based on racial identity!
The leftist mass media is hate speech and fake news.
That is who they are and what they do.
Life is easy when you know the rules.
The whole BLM/Marxist narrative about “white privilege” and “inherent white supremacy” is a racist charge against every “white” person alive today and yet to be born to any “white” person alive today.
No different than segregation and Jim Crow laws, the BLM/Marxist narrative uses a racial stereotype. Only the BLM/Marxist racist stereotype was born as a mere Marxist intellectual & academic theory, that is now expected to be read like the Ten Commandments - “sacred” and not contestable.
Hate speech against white people.
If I comment on a FB post, people click on my profile and see that I’m from Alabama. I’ve been called an inbred hick many times and was told to stop screwing my sister. All from people who are ultra sensitive to political correctness.
