We Can Fix the Racism. #alleyesonyou #thingslegendsaremadeof #BeadsOnAString

Can racism be fixed? Of course it can. Not by some come together and pray. Prayer works by faith and action. Other than that, you're talking to the wind.

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.”

For the most part I agree with you Ey. We ARE one family, whether we see it that way or not. But I also disagree with one thing. It is not just the white races responsibility to "fix" the problem of racism. It is everyone's/ We must all, as citizens of the world, examine our own attitudes and adjust them when they do not align with the "one family" ethos. ALL people who encounter anyone "other" and has grown up with ideas about that "other" is racist. It is a global issue, not a white one.

Ey Wade said...

I understand what you're saying,but you're missing what I am saying.
As individuals, we can examine ourselves and change racism towards another race.

To fix racism against the Black race is not the Black race problem. We know we are Black, we accept that. Others have to accept and acknowledge that is what we are, not who we are. I can't be anymore human than I already am.

What I said in the post is a remedy. When unjust and unGodly things happen to Black people and White people stand up against it,that is how they can fix it. If we, as Black people are the only ones protesting, the only one commenting, it seems as if we are searching... begging for attention are a pity party. Silence is what is killing people of noncolor and keeping racism, alive.
As a society we can work together to change bias laws, but as a society, I can't change a person's hate for my color.

Robin Bee Owens said...

I love this. Beautifully written.

Ey Wade said...

Clarifying, my comment should have said "Silence is killing people of color."
And, my main reason for saying White people can fix it is because they are seen as the leading visual in normal life, the superior. Not a just or true assessment but everyone in the world knows what I'm saying.
People of all races are dying to be whiter, believing privilege and good life awaits.

Yvonne Hertzberger said...

Yes, silence kills. And white silence kills people of colour. Just like European silence ("We didn't know")killed Jews.Pretending we don't see and standing by when injustice happens, no matter who it is, is a moral sin. In the words of Albert Einstein, ""The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." However, I still say we need ALL of us to :fix" racism,Blacks need to continue to speak out as well. Only together will that problem be solved. As long as one group holds apart from another we can never be united.

Ey Wade said...

Why would Blacks STOP speaking out?We have the most to lose. In actuality, you agree with everything I have written. Go back an reread my post.

Yvonne Hertzberger said...

Yes, as I said from the beginning. The part I had trouble with is " It is the White man's job to fix it." It isn't. It's everyone's job to fix it. That statement just sort of jumps out.

Ey Wade said...

That's because you want to take it as being accusing or blaming you for something, when it is actually giving power.
You object to the White ethnicity being called out. In the lives of people of color, the silence is loudest on the White side if the line.And. it's your prerogative to not agree.

I can't fix your perception, either. All is broken down without the post. I can take out the WORD white, and put in "the silent people," but everyone knows what I'm saying and I chose to call it as I see it.

Of course there are millions of White people against racism, but if they never say a word, they may as well agree.
