We Can Fix the Racism. #alleyesonyou #thingslegendsaremadeof #BeadsOnAString
Can racism be fixed? Not by some, come together and talk about it.
Not by some, let's change the laws of society- makes some for special groups... even though those things are a great aid and have been used over and over again with the same results- people.
People still live in their frame of mind. Continue to have the BUT when it comes to treating well the POC, Black people in particular. Even dark skinned people of other race try not to group to close because they don't want to be caught up in the hate always directed at the Black race.
Someone came on my page to debate my feelings, my ideals and asked me my solution and then had nerves enough to get upset at my response. To negate my Black thoughts.
This was my answer: Racism has to change by the individual, by the conscious effort of a single person checking himself with a microscope. By a person examining his way of thinking and reacting. By a person, refusing to listen and silently agreeing with the racial jokes, "oh, this is bad, mean, racist, hateful, wrong... but it's funny." Then laughing and walking away. Racism lives on.
I can't fix racism against myself. A Black person can not fix racism directed against them. It, and really think about it... It is the White man's job to fix it. White man developed it with the labeling and it has continued through time. Everyone knows it's wrong, will jump in a minute and shout to the Roof role-playing everyone is the same, I don't see color, we bleed the same... but when you turn around, step back, refuse to say something to those close to you when you disagree with their viewpoint, you actually agree with their viewpoint, at least that's the impression you give them.
When you're too afraid to talk race, scared you'll say the wrong thing, scared to talk about it because you think you'll be in an argument... why can't it be seen as a conversation? Differences in opinions is not always argument, it's simple a sharing of ideas and ideals. A back and forth doesn't have to mean you're hating and fighting. Stay to the end, each person may learn something. The silence is what keeps racism alive. Speak Up.
In closing this, I have to say: Don't come on my page to correct me if you don't want to hear me. Don't tell me what I should do, feel or think, if you can't tell me how you tell the same to your friends and family.
If you want me to live and understand you, then prepare to live, listen, and understand where I'm coming from. Don't tell me you're color blind because you negate me. People see "Black"and tend to group us with all the negative. So, when you say you don't see me as Black, basically you're saying - I don't see you as ONE OF THEM. I am one of them and we are all individuals.
My Statement of Belief:
“I feel that we as Americans are all equal and held together by a common thread. Like a treasured beaded necklace of different colors held together on a string, we are held together by our necessities and our circumstances and our humanity. Every color helps to make the necklace beautiful. We can never be a totally separate entity! Americans of all colors are so integrated that if we hurt one, we hurt all. Just like that necklace of treasured beads, leave one out and the gap is seen. Break the chain and many of us are lost.”
