But it's not always about race. Not everything is about race. "OMG, she wouldn't let me buy a $38K purse. I guess it's because I'm black." or "OMG. I didn't get that job. I guess it's because I'm black." or "OMG. I didn't get the scholarship. It's because I'm black."
Maybe you didn't get the purse because you walked in looking like a freaking slob, or you didn't get the job because someone was more qualified than you, or you didn't get the scholarship because your grades weren't good enough.
It's not always about race, but oftentimes, when a black person, or an Arab, or a fat person, or whatever, gets butthurt because they don't get their way, it's always the other person's fault. It's a lot easier to blame the other person.
No, it's not always about race. However when my Arab and black friends tell me that they're uncomfortable, or that they'd like to avoid a situation, or that someone is acting odd around them ... I tend to believe them. I don't point at them and say, "OMG, why do you always think about race!?" Why? I trust them. I believe people when they tell me something is wrong.
I mean, let's assume that we believe all people are created equal and think alike. Gallup asks, "Is the American justice system baised against black people
?" We see that 68% of blacks say it is, and 69% of whites say it's not. Do we white people actually believe that the justice system is unbiased, and the only reason that the poll skews is because 70% of black people are just dishonest? That a huge percent of black Americans are intellectually lazy and spend their lives blaming others and pretending to be victims?
... I mean we've suddenly gone from assuming that black people are equal to us, to believing that they are dishonest, race-baiting Gallup poll answerers. We're doing exactly what we're being accused of doing! Labeling another person with a negative trait simply due to their skin color. Why not actually listen to what they are saying
and see what issue is, instead of slagging them off as butthurt whiners? Is that somehow going to violate some unwritten rule or waste our time?
