White privilege exists. Change my mind.
Yes, because the people who are shooting and robbing each other in the hood, that are also talking and bragging about it in their rap songs are black... so obviously, officers, who have kids that listen to rap music, have a fair reason to have prejudice towards you guys. It's only natural.
Whites would never have any privilege if you guys didn't make yourself look worse than them.
yess!! it does exist and the fact some people dont see it is insane i mean there are FACTS of black people getting more time in prison than white people for the SAME EXACT CRIME
The truth that no one wants to say is that black culture has a problem with authority that it refuses to address or improve upon. Instead it cause then to react to pressure like a child calling the judge names or resisting arrest adding onto the sentence.
i fully agree w u white privilege does exist
I agree and disagree. A major reason black Americans generally are arrested or imprisoned isn't because of a hatred for the black community or deliberate attack on them but it's due to the fact that black people statistically speaking have a higher rate of fatherless households which also statistically speaking leads to higher crime rates. Only 38.7% of African-American minors live with both parents. 85% of youth who are currently in prison grew up in a fatherless home according to the Texas departments of Corrections. As respectfully as I can say this African Americans also tend to live in not as nice neighborhoods because of the poverty rates not as nice neighborhoods means more crime and more crime means a continuous chain of black Americans getting into crime so they can feed their families . So I would not necessarily say white privilege or whites can do so much more than blacks but undoubtedly the economic disproportionality needs to be fixed by doing things such as lowering the black unemployment rate and getting our African American citizens out of poverty.
I may do assume that racism is a reality in the US and many other countries, however I believe much more in a wealthy privilege, in which the white population due to its bigger currency levels is less affected by law jurisdiction than the black population. But Indeed, this social reality has its roots laid on racism and consequently slavery.
talking about racism then saying however privilege makes no sense
i can explain why i think the way i do and say the things i do. not everyone thinks the same way and many people just say things they no nothing about
I think they way most people come to conclusions is based mainly on experience. How a person reacts to what goes on in the world. From what vantage point are you looking from. How does it affect you. Gut reactions. You try to analyze things objectively as best you can. I really don't think I'm much different from you.
i know, i was trying to understand why you see things that way. that is why we never got to debate
a debate is to help me understand you. so fsr i have no idea where your beliefs come from
They come from how I see things based on the info I recieve.
The purpose of a debate is not to promote a manifesto. It's to make a general point. This is my initial contact with you and I have no idea what you've said in the past. If you tell me the only needs a person has is to eat deficate and sleep my response would be in that case you can attain all those things in prison. I think humanity has needs that go far beyond basic life needs. I think history shows that repressing human need creates a violent response.
what do you mean by see things in terms of society? I have been promoting human interactions for sometime
how can you define anything by generalizing?
I'm not gonna try to change your philosophy if thats how you see it. I see things more in terms of society. Particularly a free society. Freedom is freedom of Government intrusions but to me it's also freedom from poverty.
the only needs are to eat shit and sleep. everything else is extra credit
There are life needs and there are immediate needs. Giving money helps for immediate needs. Life needs are dealt with by learning. I would say to someone,find what they believe in and pursue it. I can't decide what life need a person should pursue.
why give money if you can teach them to shift. How would you teach someone to be financial independent?
how do you help people and yourself
The hardest thing to do is give people money. Thats because money is what we've been taught to value most. So I try to help people that way. To help myself, its the effort of not becoming accepting of a life of just existence. Like everyone else I sometimes screw up.
Probably not much diffrent then what you want. Treat everyone with dignity and respect however say the truth as you see it. Help people, and acknowledge the help you recieve. I don't believe it only comes from God but I believe in decency,be decent.
one person can influence 1000. what would you like to do in order to make your home a better place for you to live in
You are correct,this is why I don't value one society over another. When I say German society is more advanced than American its because they've addressed their historical injustices in away that we never have,they have a sucessful economy with much less urban blight and they have better health care. I mainly address the injustices of my society because a movement has existed all my life to lessen the affect of those injustices to the present.
