Imagine the outrage if I was to post 'Insight into Black Thinking'... Says a lot right there..
You're being a snowflake. If you interviewed me and shared what **I** said to a group of white people who would be outraged? Me? Whites? Why do you think that would be outrageous? It would only be outrageous if you were lying and it wasn't representative of a large cross section of black people. What she said rings true. And it isn't words that bear this out. It's behavior. You're not looking at behavior. You're too preoccupied with trying to be right all the time. You cannot give even an inch because you're afraid that you'll be seen as losing the argument. But it is well known that police officers tend to be more aggressive towards a 6ft+ black man over a 5'9 white guy, even though they're armed with weapons. It is a common trope of the white woman in the elevator clutching her purse when the black guy enters (maybe not so much anymore). Fear of black people takes on a number of forms and when it comes to power, whites sometimes engage in behavior to mitigate the perceived threat. It happens on the micro level with things like the Mayor Pete scandal and it all adds up to the macro.
"This white person you spoke at surly doesnt speak for me or anyone I have ever run into."
I can kind of understand your ignorance on this point. What I keep telling this white woman, whom I've had many conversations with about race, is that there are many pockets of ISOLATION. So it matters where you live. If you live in a small white community, kinda rural, you're more likely to find more overt racism. Whites in the inner cities, whites who have much more interaction with black people and therefore don't see them as a bogeyman and don't see them as having any kind of agenda and don't see them in so many negatively judgmental ways, its going to be different. And sometimes you have cops who grew in these isolated communities that then move to more integrated areas and having to police crime, confirmation bias starts kicking in and they're much more of a danger to black people than white cops who grew up in that area. When I was going to school and working in Huntsville Alabama I was made aware of a town that had hardly any (if any) black people. And my bosses' niece lived there and came to the office to visit one day. She was a nice little girl but she pointed at me like I was an attraction at a zoo and said "YOU'RE A BLACK MAN!" It was comical and she didn't mean anything bad by it. She was just amazed. And I'm not that old so this wasn't the 1970s. This was probably 2001. She sat on my lap and I let her play on my computer. She was young enough to still be curious but she had been raised in a very isolated environment. This is where racist ideology is more easily passed on because the people hearing it often have nothing positive to compare it to.
"destruction of the black family by telling black mothers that if they are single that they would receive more welfare money each month"
You mean, if they qualify. Because if they make too much money then they don't get public assistance. You know that right? But you left it out. Why? To make your argument sound better? Black mother with 2 sets of twins, gets nothing. She can't even get child support most of the time. And like it or not, cost of living in 2019 is skewed towards dual income households. So yeah... its easy for you and your wife to say "oh that's bad because these poor people will sit at home and have more babies because they can get more money for free" like every woman wants to have 5 kids. Meanwhile there are plenty of people who have foster kids for the money. And the difference is, they can give those kids back and not feel bad if they're unsuccessful in life. Those black women raising children are often doing the best they can but cannot sustain a decent standard of living for themselves and multiple kids without a job. And if they do have a job that doesn't pay enough then they can't afford child care, because they have to pay for each kid. Even Ivanka wants to change that. Taking money away from people isn't going to stop them from having children like some sort of economic eugenics program. All it does is increase the cost of being poor; something you clearly don't understand.
"planned parenthood killing black children at 5 times the rate of any other race,"
Planned Parenthood is not out there hunting people down in the streets like some kind of gang. People go to Planned Parenthood. Do you know why its called planned parenthood? To assist people in "planning for parenthood". When people have children when they don't plan to they have weigh the cost. Some people can afford it more easily; even if indirectly through their parents, grandparents, and others in their social support circle. Take someone already in poverty. Do you think they want another mouth to feed? Another person to worry about out there in the streets? It's not the same proposition as it is for people in the suburbs who like to judge everyone else.
"So in a way I can kind of agree with you that there ARE people who are afraid of Black people getting too much power. But its the democrats.. And you still cant say that its only white democrats that think that, because people like Maxine Waters has stayed in power and made millions off of the same rhetoric."
I'm glad you recognize the irony in you offering evidence in support of the the main point about the fear of black power. But since you are partisan, of course you think it is partisan. Tell your wife to do the SAME research on the republican side of history. You seem to think that we don't understand that there were white racists on both sides of the political aisle. But again... you're the one that acts like racism and white supremacy simply don't exist because you personally haven't joined the alt right, white nationalist movement. You personally haven't shot up a black church.
Ask your wife how many klansmen are liberal democrats. Your "research" seems extremely one-sided.
White nationalists claim that culture is a product of race, and advocate for the self-preservation of white people. White nationalists seek to ensure the survival of the white race, and the cultures of historically white nations. They hold that white people should maintain their majority in mainly-white countries, maintain their dominance of its political and economic life, and that their culture should be foremost. Many white nationalists believe that miscegenation, multiculturalism, mass immigration of non-whites and low birth rates among whites are threatening the white race, and some argue that it amounts to white genocide. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_nationalism
So yes, they are afraid of black people. Now are you going to tell me these are really all democrats? You know you can't say that. You're stuck.
Following the defeat of the Confederate States of America, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was founded as an insurgent group with the goal of maintaining the Southern racial system throughout the Reconstruction Era. The creation of this group was able to instill fear in African Americans while, in some cases, filling white Americans with pride in their race and reassurance in the fact that they will stay 'on top'. The message they gave to people around them was that, even though the Confederate States did not exist anymore, the same principle remained in their minds: whites were superior. Although the first incarnation of the KKK was focused on maintaining the Antebellum South, its second incarnation in the 1915-1940s period was much more oriented towards white nationalism and American nativism, with slogans such as "One Hundred Percent Americanism" and "America for Americans", in which "Americans" were understood to be white and Protestant. The 1915 film The Birth of a Nation is an example of an allegorical invocation of white nationalism during this time, and its positive portrayal of the first KKK is considered to be one of the factors which led to the emergence of the second KKK.
More recently, the alt-right, a broad term covering many different far-right ideologies and groups in the United States, some of which endorse white nationalism, has gained traction as an alternative to mainstream conservatism in its national politics. The comic book super hero Captain America, in an ironic co-optation, has been used for dog whistle politics by the alt-right in college campus recruitment in 2017. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_nationalism
Did you read that? "FAR RIGHT IDEOLOGIES". Period. The problem with a lot of white people is that they want to talk as if they know a lot about white people. Come to find out they don't know as much about other whites as they think they do. But don't take it personally. There is no white gene for racism. These are learned behaviors that can be unlearned. At the end of the day you still choose whether to be racist or not; whether to be ignorant on racial issues or not. It's your choice. Other whites do not need to be speaking for you because you do not represent EVERY white person on the planet. I shouldn't have to tell you this but race is a made up thing.
