He who doesn't understand a race typically offers the most input about said race.
He who gets along just fine with another group of people never starts a thread or facebook feeds about them.

we go on and on and on about equality and diversity, but we are supposed to recognize it when people are oppressed based on their race?


lol what the fug is this

yes, when people are the victims of racism, "we are supposed to recognize it when people are oppressed based on their race"

"equality" doesn't mean "ignoring racism"

Nope. Anybody can google stats or pics(again not aimed at philly). Its what you do on a personal level about any form of racism you see and whether or not you are making an impact.

my point was to treat people as individuals...not as a group. it doesn't take a group of people to be oppressed was my point

A lot of problems in the world are caused by people's lack of ability to empathize (put themselves in the shoes of someone else). Many issues in the world (racism, sexism, bigotry) would be solved if people were able to better understand where minority populations are coming from. For example, since I am not a woman I have come to accept that there are certain things that I take for granted as a male; if someone had not explained to me in detail the advantages that I take for granted living in a patriarchal society I might have continued to minimize the struggles of women in America and other places.

Read the book "Black Like Me"....it's a story of a white man who changed his skin pigmentation in order to better understand what it really meant to be a black man in America. A lot of people who continue to minimize the struggles faced by blacks in America would do well to read that book.....if you really think that racism is not as bad as people say it is, then conduct the same experiment. It's much easier to just make blanket statements from the comfort of the privileged experience that was given to you purely because of an accident of birth. Life is complicated; anybody who espouses an overly simplistic view of life is fooling themselves.

You are right, but the overall lesson applies today. What I got from that book is that you should try and "walk a mile in someone else's shoes". Most people refuse to do that (just like most people will refuse to read the book because it was written in 1961 and so is automatically invalid). A similar experiment was performed on Oprah with similar results in present day society: http://www.oprah.com...for-a-Day-Video

I know it's Oprah but whatever. The overall lesson is still valid in the present day.
