APPARENTLY, Blacks today need protection from themselves.
I am black. I live in a neighborhood that is 80% black and you know what? Violence of any sort is so rare here that it would be splashed on the front page of the local newspaper if it occurred at all. I’m 20 and in college and working on becoming a healthcare professional so tell me…do I need anyone protecting me from myself???
No. I don’t. Good day.
Why is it that this racist BS still happens in America, but you never see shit like this happening in other countries where black people are. And why is race such a big deal in America still. I don't get it.
Racism is a huge deal in other countries, all over the world, probably a much bigger deal elsewhere than in the US. I mean there are actual racewars and genocide going on right now, and if you think our immigration issues are bad you should read up on europes. im not saying things are great here or that black people should just accept themselves as being second class citizens, but i am saying that if a black man wants to be a first class citizen in america he can at this point, through hard work and acting like one, and whether you want to admit it or not there is lots of help out there for you if you just go get it. yes there are lots of racists out there but it goes both ways and you cant get hung up on those people, fuck the haters, they are most often just rednecks or internet trolls anyway, people you wouldnt care about otherwise, so why do you start caring when they say some ignorant shit. fuck em, do you. dont let anyone, white or black, put you in a certain spot because of your race, be a fucking individual.
also i think everyone should read Ralph Ellison Invisible Man if they are even remotely interested in these topics.
