I disagree, how about Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King. Having said, it’s besides the point. To me it seems that you are overly obsessed at how white people may perceive people of color, or perhaps you for that matter. It could be a self-importance issue? I don’t know? But part of doing The Work means and what this Network is about is to consider possibilities about ourselves that are not always that pleasant. Though this is the only look forward to become better people.
Also, If you pay close attention and read sott.net carefully you will notice that the PTB are hell bent trying to division between the different races. Ofcourse CNN and all other MSM outlets don’t give a damn about racism, I mean this are the same people who sell war after war and create countless of deaths. They are sabotaging the real fight against Racism and painting everyone as a victim with the sole reason of setting everyone against each other.
White people and people of color don’t have any fight, only the fight the psychopaths at the top give us.
Considering this Diana I think we should all take a close look whether we tame the tide of hatred, or feed it during these times.
Or as Martin Luther King once said:
''We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.''
Luckily, for the average human being and as Nelson Mandela once said.
''love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.''
That what they are up against, but I'm afraid that the PTB will have their race war if we stay stuck in the ‘’opposing’’ ideologies they feed us and remain unable to look beyond the curtain and see our true enemy.
I also think you have a great writing style Diana, please try to consider all what we have said, or at least keep it in mind.
Well, how should I explain this. I'm curious about how POC are perceived about white people and I write a lot about it mostly because the way people are talking about race and racism on Sott or in places like Quillette and how I see these things being played out in real life, in my own and in the lives of people I have encountered, are fairly different. Often, while people are right to say that propaganda can distort your perception of events, I feel like they never take the time to consider that one's life experience can be so removed, so sheltered from something that they are things about others that they don't know that they don't know. Or rather they are things you would understand, only if you were in that person's skin, literally. The answer to why POC are taken with SJW seems to be "narcissistic babies". Perhaps, there are other answers too? Furthermore, I see nobody wonder why a backlash is coming when in the real world, outside the social science department of some universities talking about white privilege would make people think you're crazy or racist. I mean in your workplace can you go and talk about white privilege or whatever it is SJW babble about? And I can assure you those company that try to be as politically correct as possible don't believe a word they say. It's all PR and marketing.
This being said, I suppose that if I didn't feel like we were on the verge of a race war, I would have been less preoccupied about racism and all that.
If I understand you well, whenever I see people acting in prejudiced ways and speak about it, I am feeding the tide of hatred or feeding it?I guess ultimately all of suffering, discontentment and grievances are caused by PTB. And also, ultimately, it is our psychological differences that matters. However, in the real world none of these things mean anything. Nobody knows or cares about psychological/ soul differences. Therefore, we are far, very far from being some kind of brotherhood or whatever. I'm not going to pretend that somebody cares or understand me if he doesn't. That doesn't mean I don't wish that things would be different. However, I think that it is counterproductive to pretend things are in a way that they aren't. By the way, I don't believe that POC/ black people are like the Jews in WW2 or Palestinian in Israel. Things are much better than they were a couple of decades ago, but prejudice and bias are much more pernicious and rampant than people think in my opinion. It's not about whether we are born racist or not, which would have been an interesting topic if I was talking about human potential, but I wasn't.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say about looking beyond the curtain and seeing our real enemy. I'm aware that most black politicians have done nothing for black people, that the media is on a divide and rule mission or that the liberal party is as rotten as the republicans. I know our real enemy as you say, but that doesn't mean I should pretend every is rosy in our garden. Secondly, I don't believe that me writing what I wrote really change anything. If the mass want something, one person isn't going to sway anything one way or the other and I don't talk about anything political to anyone outside this forum. I'm hoping that things turn out better than I expect, but it all seems fairly cast in stone. Finally, and this outside the scope of the conversation we were having, but in all honesty, I'm not sure what does it change that I know that what matters is what is inside rather than outside. If there's truly a race war, what does that knowledge give? Will it protect my family or I? This ties with why I hadn't replied until now. Really, I'm not sure we will agree on this (which is fine). And ultimately, whether we agree or not, whether we solve the puzzle that is racial relationship or not, what does it change? Absolutely nothing. If a race war is supposed to occur, it will occur in all its violent glory. Our discussions or lack of, won't change any outcomes.
In regards to your Nelson Mandela quote, considered that we are all fairly twisted to various degree, I don't know how love is supposed to come naturally to the human heart. And about Candace Owens, I think people should be more wary of her. Look at this article from Cathy Young: The Problem with Candace Owens - Quillette
