Will the sensitivity around race create actual racists?
I think 10-12 years ago, that the US had reached a point in which most Americans were not racists and generally where ambivalent towards the topic. I still don’t believe the average person is a racist, but I believe everyone sees race and likely feels the stereotypes that can be associated therewith.

That is not to say that seeing racial difference necessarily means you actionably suppress those of a different color or origin.

That said, I can’t help but believe the over the top racial sensitivity we are seeing pushed in current culture, to the point of social Marxism, will do anything other than push ordinary, non-racists into a position of actually becoming a racist in some respects.

People in general don’t like others who complain. They especially don’t like those that complain for what appear to be false reasons.

I think we are going to see this soon. I think it is likely orchestrated by those pushing socialism as well.

I believe the more "sensitive" politicians and the media are about race, the more Americans won't give a shite.

For racism to go away, it needs to quit being brought up constantly.

Despite what the media says, we aren’t living in the 50’s or60’s anymore. People of all races work with or encounter other races everyday without problem, yet the media tries to say we’re on the brink of a full blown race war.

If the media would quit trying to create a divide that isn’t really there, then we’d all be happier and better off, instead of constantly coming up with ways to blame our shortcomings on another race


Example, no one had ever heard of ‘white privelege’ until a couple years. Now, it’s everywhere. It’s a media creation made to divide.

Race relations are the best they have ever been, in real life. The media makes it seem like the eve of a race war. I suggest you quit watching and just enjoy folks of the opposite race.

This is the truth the left is petrified to admit.

There has literally never been, in the history of the world, a better society in which to be a female, minority or immigrant (even if you're not a legal immigrant, incredibly) than the USA in Feb. 2019.

Not even close.

And it's getting fricking BETTER.

When the left runs out of people that feel aggrieved then they run out of a voting base. The left can not exist without people feeling oppressed. They will create new victims if and when the need arrises. It's a mob posing as a special interest group posing as a political party. Why did race riots pop up the last year or two before Obama left office? We all know why.

re: Will the sensitivity around race create actual racists?
I will tell you now, that in some situations I have been forced to "go there".

When situations occur (and yes, some in "polite" real-life settings) and someone starts in on the white-male bashing, I will not HESITATE do defend my gender and race because *gasp* I have FAMILY who are also white male.

While I think it's sort of silly to take pride in anything other that ones' OWN accomplishments, to sit and let the white-male bashing go undefended only makes it worse in the long run.

Another equally important question: Can anyone deny that new generation of anti-White racists are being raised because of identity Politics?

The primacy of identity politics on the left is causing it to burble to the top on the right, which is unfortunate.

Additionally, it is greatly amplified in the Media and Online.

In the real-world (at least here in the South), people are just living their lives and being decent fking human beings to one another.

I live in the "good" part of town, but my favorite Grocery Store is in the hood.

They have an old time Deli and 95% of the people that work at the store are Black or Mexican.

I have never felt ANYTHING other that warmth when going there and they call me by name and even *gasp* "sweety:!

We talk about food, how awful kids are and they keep me coming back constantly.

I'll stop rambling now, have to go to the store and get a baloney sandwich....

This is was absolutely scares the Dems/progs and have been manufacturing racial discourse. They are seeing more and more minorities slowly leave the democratic "plantation". Also why you have seen the Dem party ratchet up latino votes (open borders) to replace the black vote they are losing.

the biggest systemic oppression to black people is the Dem party.

No other Race is owned like the Dem party owning the black race, how is that possible and not a sign of systemic oppression?

What other race is completely smeared by the political party and by their own race for switching party lines?

One of the biggest con jobs in US history. Like LBJ said, we have to get behind this civil rights issue and we will own that N-word vote for 200 years.

When polled on issues (immigration, free market, taxes, religion, etc.) the majority of blacks align with republican views, but vote dem...its crazy.
