- I & I
African americans can back up everything we say about racism with facts and events
White people back up everything they say about racism with opinions (opinions developed through americas education system)
Do you see the issue here?
when you’re white, you’re raised to think that your word is law, that your opinions are facts
so a guarantee some white people will read this and think
-“Money is the root to all Evil.” I say hell to the NO! Not having money is the root to all evil…
-“You get slapped on the right cheek, present the left cheek as well.” I say you’re a fool if you do! Lets set the record straight, you kill my cat I slaughter your dog…
-“Get on your knees & pray.” No way fam! I’ll walk & pray cuz somebody gotta look for opportunities to put food on these tables…
-“Just believe & all your sins will be whipped out.” Really that easy?!?! What about taking responsibility as a grown up human-being for the pain caused to others & try to fix it?!?! Man up!
I honestly don’t see this ending well…
For those that don’t know, Good Times is about a Black family trying to get by in Chicago while dealing with a multitude of other serious AND comedic issues.
Do any of y’all think this could end okay?
My response to a racist and ignorant post (top picture) that I saw on Facebook.
The following are all examples of peoples whose livelihoods were destroyed by European settlement or conquest. Most of these “neighborhoods” are discussed more in depth in the Racism: A History series that can be found for free on YouTube which was ironically done by the BBC.

A reaction to oppression cannot be equated with oppression as it is dismissive of the notion that a reaction is necessary for survival. Hence why equating the Black Panthers to the KKK is a invalid and ignorant argument. One organization prides itself on chauvinistic and terrorism against certain people to “purify” America, while the next organization was a reaction towards racism and police brutality
The best thing is that these people are complaining that white people ruin everything and are the devil and only steal everything from PoC while 99% of them sits in a country that wouldn’t be in the modern state it is now if not for white people, while using a machine made by white people running a operating system made by white people blogging on a website made by white people .
We rest our case…
