WHY IS IT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT RACISM WHITE FOLKS AND SOME BLACK FOLKS ACT SURPRISED?
WHY IS IT WHEN STUDIES ARE RELEASED DOCUMENTING RACISM, SOME WHITE FOLKS, AND SOME BLACK FOLKS ACT SURPRISED?
WHY IS IT SOME WHITE FOLKS AND SOME BLACK FOLKS ACT AS IF RACISM IS NOT AN AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE?
America was founded on White Supremacy, America's original sin, which birthed Racism and the Christian White American Holocaust called Slavery, its most prominent and historical example.
Christian White America, chained Africans in vicious and evil "enforced" servitude while calling Africans chattel and property to hypocritically appease the teachings of the Christian Bible, the White Catholic church, and White Protestant churches, who agreed with the hypocrisy and said it was OK.
Think about it, Christian White Americans, kidnapped Africans from Africa, put Africans, human beings with warm blood coursing through their bodies, in chains and used their blood, sweat, tears, and death to make them obscenely wealthy in this White Christian country; and the White Christian Church supported it wholeheartedly.
LET’S VISIT A TRUTHFUL RACIST AMERICAN HISTORY WHICH YOU WILL NOT FIND IN HISTORY TEXTBOOKS.
Black enslaved females were continually raped as a source of perverted pleasure by White male Slave owners, and as a way of ensuring they had free slaves which did not cost;
Black male and Black female slaves were "paired" to maintain and ensure a continuous "assembly line" of slaves;
de facto and de jure segregation-Black Codes-Jim Crow laws-"red-lining" by banks- the disingenuous doctrine of "Separate but Equal"-Incomplete, Dishonest, and Racist Textbooks-the chain gangs-denying Blacks Social Security for more than 25 years after its passage-the ku klux klan-voting literacy tests-voting poll taxes-using police as "Occupation Troops" in the Black Community- using the "Criminal Justice" system as an evil and devious "tool" to arrest and jail Blacks, especially Black males-
These are just a few of the documented "starters" when you talk about The White Christian American Institution of Racism in this country.
As a White Anti-Racism Writer and author Tim Wise famously say, " If you want to know if Racism is a problem, you might not want to talk to White people."
So why then, is White Christian America incredulously surprised and in denial, when studies confirm THEIR Racism?
