The Anatomy of Racism (Part 4 of 4)


While every racist is a fool, not every fool is racist.

Xenocrates

The Million Hoodie MarchWe must learn to differentiate between actual acts of racism and otherwise acts of ignorance. They are not the same. Otherwise, cries for justice like this can be successfully undermined by racists as race baiting.

If you back track some 60 years into American history, it would be fair to say that most white folks were at the very least, racially prejudiced, if not outright racist. As the decades rolled by, their ignorance waned as all their collective consciousnesses were raised. As a result, the average white adult today does not think the same way. But because the hurt has penetrated several generations of American minorities, it has created a hypersensitive society that has forgotten what racism really is, spawning an endless generation of boys crying wolf.

    gotta tell ya, this series was a little disturbing, but maybe that was simply its intent.
    Much less to inform.
    I would recommend a couple of great history books and resources that may (if this series is on the level) inspire/encourage you to re-visit some of your conclusions.

    If not, so be it.

    Following are a handful of books debunking a good number of your claims about “blacks” pre and post European invasion-,

    First up, is from educator, scholar, historian,and thinker, Carter G Woodson: The miseducation of the negro
    http://www.amazon.com/Mis-Education-Negro-Carter-Godwin-Woodson/dp/1612930204/ref=la_B001IXQ8Y0_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1347441658&sr=1-1

    Second up, Chancellor Williams, educator, scholar, historian, author of The Destruction of Black Civilization (a book that will definitely blow up your skirt) : http://www.amazon.com/Destruction-Black-Civilization-Issues-D/dp/0883780305/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1347441888&sr=1-1&keywords=destruction+of+black+civilization+by+chancellor+williams

    And, thirdly, by Ivan Van Sertima: Linguist, Anthropologists, historian, etc…a little book called:They came before Columbus
    WOW! This will, without a doubt, shake your research and belief system to the core! http://www.amazon.com/They-Came-Before-Columbus-Presence/dp/0812968174/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1347442031&sr=1-1&keywords=they+came+before+columbus+by+ivan+van+sertima

    That’s just off the top of my head, and ought to get you started, if you are really curious about presenting an unbiased or rather balanced thesis on the reasons that white racism began and persists, and the causes of the current disparities between black and white (and other) achievement.
    Mind you, i listed no radicals or fringe historians. All the above are credentialed scholars, acknowledged and respected by peers of all races and nationalities…only due to a number reason (the racism you’ve discussed here among them) have not been given as much credence or are not as well known. they have not been debunked to my knowledge.

    At least your readers might be interested if you’re not…but i believe if your thesis here was sincere then you could not help but be at least a little curious about counter arguments, history not written by the victors so to speak, counter evidence based on thorough research of a history and experience you’ve totally discounted here. And I can’t blame you for that…you’re as much a victim of racism as all the rest of us.

    Peace,
    Loco

    PS: There are MANY others. check these out. I guarantee, if you’re even half-serious, you’ll thank me!
