I am not "black", I am not "white", I am not even mixed "black" and "white" at least not in one generation.
Listening to "black" people has made me just as "racist" as listening to "white" people which is why I say that "racism" is not the problem, "racial bullying" is.
I have always known the problem with colour blindness in "white" society.
But what is politics if it is not prejudice and directed attacks?
"White" people playing the victim is nothing new. I don't see it as a threat in conversation, it is just honest debate.
Where I do see it as a threat is in me trying to make a living, but I've come to the conclusion that is just a fact of life.
I still don't know how to align myself, my current lady friend is "black" so I have to put up a fight for my rights in some way, most "whites" aren't even interested as far as I can see, she's not the Beyonce/Naomi Campbell type.
I hope I didn't go too far with the accusations about the use of the term "Babylon". Iraq is closer to my roots than Jamaica, though I grew up in London listening to reggae, so in truth it might be the other way around.
I am not playing the victim, just trying to assess what the point of me being on this forum is.
I'm still a kid when it comes to politics and a bit of a fantasist, imagining I can engage at the world level rather than starting at the base.
Life is good though, and I'm beating the paranoia, so that's a start.
