Whites Can’t Even Count (1919 Came Before “The 60s”)

Wear the “wrong” pants and blacks deserve whatever whites do

Racist white’s oppressive focus on the blacks they’ve made poor – and not white’s own racist behavior – began long before LBJ:

We must still be in the Reconstruction Era

Blacks seem to change much easier than whites – why is that?

When racist whites focus, on what racist whites do, then racist whites might become respectable themselves,…

This is how a white person looks “thinking about race”


History has shown that ‘acting better’ does not bring about being ‘treated better.’ We must remember that four girls were in Sunday school when their Birmingham church was bombed. Amadou Diallo did not commit any crime, obeyed the police, but yet was shot 41 times by the police. We can count numerous times in which women were raped not because they wore short skirts or were intoxicated but simply because they were women. This is why in “A Case For Reparations”, Ta-Nehisi Coates claims: 
The kind of trenchant racism to which black people have persistently been subjected can never be defeated by making its victims more respectable. The essence of American racism [or any hatred for that matter] is disrespect. 
Moreover, respectability politics is not a philosophy where we value morality for morality sake but it is used as a means to achieve respect from Whites and men: a goal that may never be achieved.
