Comparing situations to other races, or racism towards white people, isn't shifting things to make white people seem more important. When the premise itself which leads whites to doing this is talk which demonizes whites and makes them seem like they should be less important than other races. It's not "Mighty Whitey
" to say "so what" in the face of accusations about past deeds, to compare situations and say white people are equal. And certainly that is how things often sound, even if that isn't the case. Whites understandably get defensive.
The same happens with gender issues. A lot of people take the side of people when they talk about "male privelege", of either gender, but when it passes a certain point it seems like demonizing blame of men, many men feel like they are not on the same side as the people they are talking to. People are definitely throwing poison in the well of terms like "white privelege" and "male privelege", by talking in ways that sound as if the right is taking back from whites and men.
How much have you studied race relations in America?
More than I'd like to admit to, I've considered it a waste of my life that I'd go back and remove and purify my mind and time from if I could. Obviously for that reason there's a limit to what I've read, since I want to do things I enjoy rather than things that disturb me. In which this is something actually disturbing, not like horror movies that people throw terms like "disturbing" around with. Often only read because people such as yourself have told me "you only feel how you feel because you are ignorant", and saying I must read certain things. And being the weak-minded person I am, I listened and forced myself to do things I hated on a truly banal and sickening level, because I was told this was what I was "supposed" to do. All I got was a bitterment out of it for wasting my time reading materials I thought were racist toward white people, feeling like I wanted to make up for lost time and exposure to something I should have never been exposed to. I find it a kind of dirtying experience on all humans to read a lot of the materials out there that people should be innocent of. Which I should strive myself to be innocent of and not expose myself to more materials of. I only wish I wouldn't have to ramble on for eternity and not still be bitter.
Yes, for that reason, there is a limit to how much I have read about the subject. I consider the subject of race to be one of the worst things and most personally demoralizing things I've been exposed to in my life. But I can't avoid admitting, despite this, I think I've been exposed to a fair amount. You should go into specifics. There are different kinds of "knowledge", what some might call "knowledge" might be called "ideology" by others. It is hard to know if I have this "knowledge" or opinion people often use their adversaries on the subject of race, as it's rarely used in a specific sense.
I know you're going to tell me something like "I don't have to explain to you, what these things are and what it means", but that leaves things far too open to interpretation. I'd appreciate some clarification. And by the way, a lot of these works about the subject of the plight of racial minorities, are blatantly racist towards whites.
