A Mother’s White Privilege-Written by a White Mom
Last comment by shannalat 1 year, 3 months ago.

To admit white privilege is to admit a stake, however small, in ongoing injustice. It’s to see a world different than your previous perception. Acknowledging that your own group enjoys social and economic benefits of systemic racism is frightening and uncomfortable. It leads to hard questions of conscience may of us aren’t prepared to face. There is substantial anger: at oneself, at the systems of oppression, and mostly at the bearer of bad news, a convenient target of displacement. But think on this.

everything she says her kids don't have to worry about is because she taught her kids how to carry themselves in public. real simple, it starts at home.
as Chris rock put it.

@Gacpl- Bless you're soul. You're clueless and your ideas and comments are outdated. I'm glad the old heads like yourself are finding themselves left behind and Georgia is on the way to becoming a blue state.

not to start another subject jimmy, but this is common in most parts of the country, living in a military town you don't really see the truth out there, only what the press can sell you. heres one example.

a fire department in new york was ordered by a judge to lower the standards for the entrance exam because blacks couldn't pass it. Google it if you doubt it.

Schools also lower their standards for the same reason! By lowering our standards over the yeas is why other countries are ahead of now.

Is there really a systemic racism? This is not a race baiting question but an honest question. I may be blind but what I see in terms of racism in United States is abuse of power by men and women not a systemic view.
If anything the class system would be a form of racism however lower middle and upper class in this country seem to know no color only education or the lack thereof. I am a firm believer that while hard despite a persons race in the United States you can rise through the class system with education, drive and respect for yourself as well as everyone else.

This is were "the rubber meets the road" then, the civil rights movement has paved the way for this generation to experience equal opportunity. Society must stay diligent so that men and women with racism do not get the chance to abuse their power.

groups like SPLC have helped bring to light these situations now the only question is what to do with them? Of course the law will take it's course and their will be punishment but tolerance has to be taught for all races, religions and sexual preference.
Organizations like coexsist are on the forefront of this type of education.

It is a long and winding road....
