Can someone tell me why so many prominent black people are saying this?? Is it that they are rich? sell-outs... Uncle Toms?? Seriously?? but they're not all rich,,, not all prominent people in any circles... It does not make sense... [dailywire.com]
The Democrat in particular are notorious for trying to stir up racial hatred by backing up the radical Marxist group BLM and stirring things up over election laws requiring you to show an ID to vote. Charles Barkley is one of the few pro basketball players who seems to see things in the correct way.
I mostly agree with him. Most politicians are in the business of remaining politicians until they've bankrolled their future sufficiently. They don't work much and they make a fortune on the side. Nice gig. And as long as people are fighting among themselves, they're not going after the crooks in Washington.
The American public is being kept in a constant state of drama and fear, whether its race relations, or the economy, or tense relations with a foreign power, guns, or whatever they throw at us that is scary.
I agree with Barkley. It doesn't however, mitigate that systems in America are stacked against persons of color. I've seen and experienced this myself in the educational system. But, I agree with his statement that most black and white people are good people. America's political system has been changed to keep the wealthy class in control. America is an plutocracy.
You mean why are they suggesting that the ongoing hatred is fuelled by those that don’t want us to get over our pasts of collective experience? Be it as a white or black/ BAME person?
It’s always been theory that while people are fighting each other they don’t look to the real power holders and try and change anything meaningful.
Concentration on the past obviously prevents growth, after an analysis of how it can be used going forwards.
Social media is a place where many sites regurgitate foolishness which would be aired in 5 minutes in the kitchen of any party. Winding people up repetitively prevents them analysing their lives too much, much as the endless pursuit of the next home/ car/ home decor/ garden feature.
To heal; some people see we need to get past that. The longer the hurts have happened the harder it is. If one party denies their part in abuse it’s difficult, especially when it has far reaching impacts. To acknowledge the hurt and move on is a great step. Peace in Ireland and Berlin didn’t happen through fighting. An allowance for things to become past, acknowledged, moved on from, if not forgiven, is the peace process.
