...and now a MUST READ word - from the article "Black People in America Cannot Be Racist (As Much As They Might Like To Be)" by Rohn Kenyatta: "#Racism, inherently, implies #power; Black People in America have virtually no #institutionalpower. They do not control the government, courts, policing, transportation, housing, finance, employment, corporations, commerce, utilities, banking, publishing, the media at large, education nor politics; and sure as hell don't print any currency. All of which are the things from which "power" is resultant.
I have often asked my white counterparts if they have ever come into contact with a "black racist". Inevitably, many of them say yes, they have (which makes me chuckle). That's when I ask: "And how did that racism affect you"? I don't mean some lame thing like "I got my ass whipped,” or “my feelings were hurt.'" I mean, did you not get the loan? Were you denied living in a certain neighborhood? Were you given an illegal sentence? Did the police immediately attack you because some n-word said "I'll call the police?” Is your child relegated to an inferior school/district because the black racists have the better schools? Do black police officers routinely gun down your white children (or white people in general) in your neighborhoods? Was your child abused because some black racist judge thought you were a honkey that didn't know his place? Are you routinely denied employment?
When this second question is asked, every last one of them has fallen silent. Not one white person could/can tell me how black "racism" has had some negative institutional effect on them and/or their day-to-day lives or their existence en masse. Not one." #georgefloyd #webstagram #websta #instagram #insta #blackout #blackoutday2020 #blackoutday #blackouttuesday #theshowmustbepaused
