Originally, racism was rationalized by those who learned from experience about the behavior of other races. They stereotyped based on the usage of inductive reasoning, and made appeals to history to do so. Instead of respecting who people are as individuals on the inside that counts, they collectivized human nature...

...yet now, we see the exact same argument made by anti-racism advocates.

They tell us to learn from the experiences of those individuals who are prejudiced against, and stereotype the entirety of collective races based on those individual bad experiences.

They tell us to learn from the experiences of those individuals who are privileged towards, and stereotype the entirety of collective races based on those individual good experiences.

Anti-racism advocates fundamentally ignore how indeed, all blacks and other ethnic minorities aren't prejudiced against, and how all whites are not privileged towards.

Instead, they psychologically manipulate people's attention spans. They claim that those whites who aren't privileged actually are, and are selfish for not acknowledging the privilege they supposedly have which they really don't. After that, they appeal to the traumatized attention spans of those who were prejudiced against, and provoke them into frustration.

These anti-racism advocates are actually trying to provoke a race war when in reality, it's completely undeserved. Perhaps it's because they just like drama. After all, they prioritize possibilities before necessities in judging people's experiences. Perhaps it's because they're lazy. After all, they refuse to analyze each individual's experience for who they are on the inside that counts. Perhaps it's because they're privileged themselves, and try to spread the burden of compensation. After all, they're ignoring the difference between those whites who are privileged versus those who aren't. Perhaps it's because they're playing the victim and trying to get something for nothing. After all, blacks who weren't prejudiced against have something to gain by claiming to be something they're not while identifying whites who aren't privileged after all.

The bottomline is today's anti-racism movement isn't what it supposes to be. It doesn't care about the diversity of humanity for who people are as individuals on the inside that counts. It just tries to give people a dose of their own medicine despite how the medicine they're giving back wasn't necessarily theirs in the first place.

There is very little racism in America. Study has revealed black on black homicides is at 93 %, white on white homicides is at 84% which suggests racism is not the cause of the high incidence of homicides in America.
More blacks are killed by police than whites and some suggests racism is evident here. But every video of the recent killings by police show the blacks were running away from the police. The myth that blacks can actually outrun a cops bullet is the cause for these high fatalities and not racism.
Where there is racism is in the schools. Blacks have the highest dropout rates and are being outperformed by every other group. But even this isn't racism. It is a fact blacks are more interested in sports, rap and criminal activities than education and statistics don't lie.
So where did this myth of racism in America come from? It came from blacks who demanded whites could not own slaves and whites did not like their rights taken away from them. They fought back and lost the civil war where the dispute would be settled. The whites lost their rights and the blacks have been using this race card for every other right they want to take away from the whites. Like the right to search blacks or shoot them when they are running away from the police or resisting arrest. Not surprisingly all their protest end up with more blacks rioting and looting.

False, but it does depend on how you define racism. If you define it that one race is superior to another, then maybe you are right. However, if you define it as using race as a means to discriminate (i.e. prejudge someone based on their race), then it is alive and well.

While this is true, it does not suggest that there is little racism, just that the vast majority of murders are not racially motivated....unless they are, because there is so much segregation.

It is true that every case in the last year, the suspect was cause for force. That does not mean the killing was justified nor racially motivated.

I've not heard of this belief, and to suggest that people would believe something so stupid is a bit racist, IMO.

This, too, sounds racist.
And, statistics don't lie, but it doesn't mean they are innocent. For example, if a racist police force is issuing tickets to blacks and not whites, the stats will suggest that blacks are breaking the law in larger numbers than whites. So, while the stat does not lie, it is not the truth, either.

This sounds incredibly racist, and, at least, needs to be reworded.

Because the Jim Crow South took away people's rights?

I was unaware the looting was done exclusively by blacks, and I am aware that whites are involved in the protests, so, I'm not sure what your point is here, but it sounds like you are trying to justify your racism.

(turns to onlookers)
But, as I've said before, these actions do re-enforce racial stereotypes, and causes the cycle of racism to continue.
My work here is, finally, done.
