Since it never fails to happen I want to help those who may only read the title and comment without reading what I have to say. Please read what I have written before commenting or going off on me. Those who have visited this blog often can assume the position that I’m going to take when I heard the following.
Now I don’t know how I missed this one, but after listening to this I can not let this one go unchecked. So with all due respect, please allow me to offer my suggestions on this one.
Mr. Kambon, I understand your frustration with how many non-White people are treated in this country and throughout the world. It can never be honestly disputed that there has been vast inequities charged against many people. Unfortunately it has been at the hands of White people, SOMETIMES.
Specifically in the case of the United States, the government has promoted, allowed, overlooked, perpetuated and preyed on many of its citizens in the name of liberty and justice for all. The world does have groups; organizations, theories and a system that has helped give some groups of people a false sense of superiority by their conduct or silence. But to suggest that the only solution is to exterminate White people is backwards.
Be patient with me on this one. I’m trying not to miss anything.
If we are to take the claim that the only solution is to exterminate all White people this is where I have one of many issues. To do that, would that mean that we are just as bad as the one we are to kill? How is this action any different than the actions of other hate groups or religious extremist that target Blacks, Jews, Latino, Asian and Homosexuals?
After my initial shock of your statement, the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Public Enemy offered some guidance in dealing with this old idea of killing groups of people. “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
I wonder what the people in Sudan would have to say about your analysis.
Now I absolutely can not stand Sean Hannity. I personally think very little of Sean Hannity and think he’s a waste of bad air, so you can understand how much it pains me to say this. I have to ag…agr… sigh… breath, alright I can do this. I have to agr… hold up I think I think I’m going to throw up… aaa-g-r-e-e with Sean Hannity on this one.
I can and have named many White people who have done many positive things on behalf of Black people. Just last moth I basically gave a brief history lesson titled “Whites in Black History”. During the 2008 Presidential Campaign I repeatedly found myself warning against the trap of racism however as subtle it may have been. The first blog post of this year was titled “Your Friendly Neighborhood Negro” which focused on race and racism. I warned on multiple occasions about the use of race when it came to Roland Burris. Just last week I wrote about Discrimination. I have written about this subject often and each time I try to explain why you shouldn’t take the position of the hater, even if you’re the hated.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. – DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Yes, there are some White people today who simply just don’t get it and may never fully understand the damage done by some of their ancestors. But it is not all and it is unfair to even blame all White people for the sins of their forefathers. There are many Blacks, Latino, Asians, Christians and Muslims in many of the societies of the world today that has committed similar notorieties against there own people too.
Hate is not bound to a single group. White people are not the sole proprietors of discrimination. If I remember correctly wasn’t it by the hands of Black men that ended the life of Malcolm X. It was the hands of a mentally deranged Black woman in Harlem that plunged that letter opener into the chest of Martin Luther King.
This hatred towards any group, not just Whites is self defeating. I understand how it feels to be discriminated against, not only because of race, but on class and education regardless of how subtle or unintentional it may be. But you must not walk around every waking moment of your life perpetuating a form of an inferiority complex with a superiority complex. Let me briefly explain that. Individuals who display a sort of superiority complex actually are suppressing their inferiority complex. I have to make myself better than you combat the low esteem I have for myself. The truth is that we are all victims and the victimizers. None of us is immune to the wicked ploys that psychologically plague our societies.
The same things that’s wrong with White people is the same thing that’s wrong with Black people, that’s the same thing wrong with Asians, that’s the same thing wrong with Latinos, that’s the same thing wrong with Christians, that’s the same thing wrong with Gays/Lesbians, that’s the same thing wrong with Muslims, that’s the same thing wrong with Jews and any other group I’ve missed. We just want to be acknowledged, treated with respect and loved for who we are and not for who or what we’re not. Once everyone figures this out then we can fix the problems of the world.
So if you want to exterminate someone, let’s exterminate hatred. Let’s exterminate bigotry and discrimination. Let’s exterminate radical extremism in all cultural, religious and political beliefs. If we do this, then exterminating anyone on the basis of race, religion, politics, disability, age, color or sexual orientation would leave the world virtually empty.
