Today I came across a blog post that stated “Blacks and whites have dominated American culture and history since it was founded and they still consider themselves the most important races here.”
Did I miss the meeting where Blacks were “important” in the eyes of most of America? So important, in fact, that they too feel themselves important? Isn’t that the entire point of the protests and movements today, to remind Blacks – and other Americans – that Black lives matter?
The thing is, the article – if it can be called such – was written by a Korean – American who was adopted and raised in Memphis and who attended predominantly black schools. He says that blacks are more racists towards other minorities than whites are racists towards those same minorities. That Blacks (and whites) only seek out the assistance of “other” minorities when it is needed.
