The word for the day: the Race race

You claim to be the master, The jack of all trade…….master of none. All you think is right because you have atomic powers.
You may rule the world, But we were here before you, We saw dawn before you ever did, We saw the sands before you built blocks.
Even though tables have turned, We know who we are. You call us public enemy, But we own the future.
What manner of Perfection! You think because you’re white you can kill?
One day will come, History will change: Your children will pay for the mistakes you made!   
    A white man once asked my dad “as a black man, how do you know when your hands are clean ” funny right? So racist it shows that it’s not just something they copy. Racism is something that’s innate and people have refused to think differently. “The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socio-economic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything” -Scott Woods. LOL, I love my dad as calm as he is, he replied “ohhh, when they are white they are very dirty, but when they are black they are extra clean ” I’m sure this reply should have pissed that white guy off, white people don’t like to believe that they practice identity politics , the definition of being white in America is that you’re a regular or normal individual while, other demographic groups set themselves apart to pursue their identity and interest. Whiteness, to white people is the American default. The fact still remains that black people are classic: We are strong, intelligent and we motivate. The question is are we proud of black? Do we show our skills? We want to be like the whites, no kwamzaa but we don’t have to be like them completely forgetting who we are. Racism is a sign of inferiority complex, that’s why they hate us we do what they can’t, we strive where they can’t, we survive and pull through what they can’t. Be proud, Black is Classic. Happy valentines day show some love to the black brothers and sisters .
