The Lady Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks - Hysterical White Middle Class BLM Activism

The Lady Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks - Hysterical White Middle Class BLM Activism
Most of the people I know who've got all "up in arms" along with recent BLM protests are white middle class people who, to the best of my knowledge, have NO close BAME friends/lovers/acquaintances. Of course familiarity breeds feeling comfortable with that which (largely appears) different, whereas distance and ignorance breeds...fear? Insecurity? Mistrust? Racism? 

Then white mono-culture booky thinks: "There's all this stuff in the media about how society is systematically racist, but I'm part of the white middle class majority...they mean me! They think I'm racist!! I must show the world I'm not a racist quicksharp, especially as I'm also quite insecure I might be a bit racist actually!! BLM! BLM!" etc.

Embarrassing as hell and sad as fuck really but there we have it. I mean, as if people have only just realised since mid 2020 that there's SOME racism left in society, and that police brutality exists, and that it need be confronted and defeated wherever it is found.
I dislike the term "Black Lives Matter" because it implies that there is a WIDELY held view in society that black lives do NOT matter. I find that to be unrealistic, hysterical, DIVISIVE hyperbole.

In mere reality that's the complex that white grievance runs on. Noticing that our system is plagued by systemic racism, the white aggrieved fear and are made to believe that they themselves are being accused of personal antipathies.

The irony, is that they react to this instigated fear by manifesting personal antipathies.

I'm a white(lol) booky middle class type. I don't suffer from those insecurities. Do you?
For what it's worth, it seems like I'm too late to bring up this point about his OP: Whether or not it's possible if something can come from nothing, it's clear that God, if he exists, definitely violates that principle: After all, what is the creation of the world but his creating something out of nothing?

Hehe

Look, I'm not saying things aren't more racist in the states than the UK, but...really?! It's THAT widespread, powerful and pernicious is it?! The lady doth protest too much, methinks, by the power of Barack Obama.

Yes. It is. On both counts.

...and now you're bitching..to me...about barack obama, like a common drich. What the fuck man? I've made my opinion of our last president as clear as I've made my opinion of our current president. He was The Deporter in Chief. A Drone Warlord. Socialism for the rich, rugged individualism for the poor. He actively made himself marketable to the forces which maintain systemic oppression in the us, both at home and abroad. There was no other route to the whitehouse for him, and he's since opined that he might have pushed too hard, to soon, too fast. That, literally, america was not ready for a black president, even one that minimized his blackness for professional expediency. The most powerful black man in the history of the united states still had to tap dance for whitey.

So...when we two adults speak, we can dispense with that nonsense in future, can we not?

I only mentioned Barack Obama because his election was a TRIUMPH against racism, I remember living and breathing that beautiful symbolic victory when it happened at the time in the UK, celebrating wildly with friends because of that element, and he was elected for a second term too! I know he wasn't perfect, very far from it in several ways even, but Obamacare was a good step and, well, he didn't have a huge majority etc...America ain't all racist, far from it, read me there at least.

I've had three beers and am exiting the forum for today. We normally get on pretty well I think TGN so I'ma step back and sober up as don't want v bad blood with you really. It's an emotive topic. Peace.

No, it wasn't, but right wing nutters have been declaring racism dead ever since he won. Hitlery struck again on that one.

You're still trying to defend individual americans from accusations of racism, up above - but that is, as I just got through explaining, the propaganda of right wing nutters. The majority of americans harbor no individual antipathy, even if the majority of americans have been noted to express apathy which effects the same outcomes with less effort. Antipathy may have been required to form these usurious systems, but apathy is all that's required to maintain them.

Yes. Yes, it is.

Could you please describe some of these "usurious (built in?) systems" TGN? Because I'd personally have imagined such entities would be illegal in modern America. :glug glug - I lied it would seem:

They are illegal in america....but that doesn't matter much when the government does it, as these past four years might help to explain.

Our government won't stop doing it until it becomes a political liability, rather than a wedge that can drive enthusiastic supporters to the polls, while benefitting the donor class.
