This week in America will certainly be one that is hopefully just a small blip in the era of Trump that America can soon move on from.
This post is not about politics- and I am certainly not here to persuade a person to think or feel one way or the other. This is just another fact checker at fake and horrifying things that are posted on social media. This particular post struck a nerve with me because it was posted by a family member and I am still at a total loss of words. The one bit of saving grace I have is they were not raised in my household- and it’s very clear when you read this little excerpt posted on their social media.
Take a minute to read this – and share this with your friends and loved ones- to show them how ignorant people can be – especially on social media when they are hidden behind a computer screen.
Reminder- these are in no way – shape- or form – my beliefs. At the bottom, I have written in bold a response to the absurd and uneducated claims of a Proud American Racist..
URGENT PLEASE READ !!!!
I was absolutely blown away by this and felt that I had to make a response. Of course I have been attacked in the comments following mine and called various names by all these people who claim to NOT be racist. And after childish bickering, I realized that this is Trumps following- this is what he has them believing- and as scary it is that these people- many of whom I would assume are educated- are spreading this false and horrifying rhetoric to their children and communities.
Here is what I posted back for them – honestly knowing that none of them would ever read it- because it doesn’t fit Trump or his administrations talking points- but I hope that one of them would read it and gain a little education about the organizations they are attacking and why they were formed. And just like the four colored women who Trump is trying to say “hate” America- I will not be silenced..
I have often
wondered about why Whites are racists, and no other race
Or if your a TRUMP Supporter your a racist.
making a point…and whether we like it or
not, I’m telling the truth.
This whole thing is laughable because it seems as though it was made by a small minded racist, who appears to know little about our Country’s history.. Please see all the red below so you may better understand our country and what racism is.
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian
Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans..or Trump supporters You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
There really are no Americans, nearly every single person who lives in our country- including you- is likely from the family of immigrants at some point in time. So, I am going to assume that by American, you mean white man or woman. I don’t think being a Trump supporter is getting you the sneers, I think people smell a racist.
You call me ‘White boy,’ ‘Cracker,’
‘Honkey,’ ‘Whitey,’ ‘Caveman’.Maga loser.. And
Who is this okay for? No where in the world is this acceptable language. Unfortunately, there are bad in all groups of people. So its not at all fair to generalize these racist statements saying they are a common thing that happens to white man- I’m calling BS.
But when I call you, Nig ger, Ki ke, Towel he ad, Sand-nigg er,
Camel Jockey, Beaner, Goo k, or Chink .. or a TRUMP Supporter You call me a racist.
Same as above, these terms you have spelled out are sickening- and they do not equate you as a Trump supporter I don’t recall hearing Trump ever use this language. If you use this language, you in fact are a racist.
You say that whites or Americans commit a lot of violence against
you..or have suppressed your race..
I am so confused when you continue to say Americans and Whites as the same thing. It is not the same thing. American does not mean white and I would hope you don’t teach your children that. This is actually edging the racist line (along with every other statement made here).
So why are the ghettos and the countries these imagrants are fleeing the most dangerous places to live? Yet we are racist if want to close our borders.
No one has ever accused our government for being racist because of closing the borders. This is just something you made up in an apparent rant. All Americans want border control- it is just not a very humane way that it is currently happening. But this is not a racist or Trump issue. This has been happening for years. This is all just another example of Trump and his followers making up lies to put fear in uneducated and elderly white Americans.
You have a democratic open border policy for fake asylum seekers.
Don’t generalize that all the people seeking asylum are fake. That is again a false statement. Making up lies to spread fear is a common and popular tactic with Trumps base.
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin
Luther King Day.
When you say You- who do you mean? Americans have a United Negro College Fund and we all have and all get celebrate and remember Martin Luther King Day. Do you even know why we celebrate Martin Luther King? You should look it up, its one of the most important pieces of history.
You have Black History Month.
Whites have 11 others that celebrating popular white figures in history as well as other religious traditions, based around white men and women.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET….
This is where I should stop wasting my time, because you must not even be aware of how racist you sound when you say “You have”- let me correct your false statement- WE HAVE- we meaning ALL Americans. This is where you take Trumps advice and leave this awful place that treats the white man and woman so poorly… and don’t let the door hit ya.
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be racists.
This is so silly. Lol. You must not have re-read this- American TV is white entertainment television. Over the years, there has been an increase in non white leading actors and actresses, but it is still 45 to 1 on mainstream tv. This is not the stupidest thing you have said yet- but ranks pretty high up there.
If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us
You have 364 days of white pride day in the United States. So stupid.
If we support TRUMP and our borders you call us racist.
Why would anyone think that because you support the borders that you are seen as racist. This is quite confusing. Just because Fox News and Trump spread false stories and start crazy petty lies to pump up the base, and try to say Dems don’t want border security- its just not true. So, this is another stupid statement.
If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.
Confused on why people would think you are a racist? Do you think all black people are racist because they have Black History Month? I’m really starting to think whoever wrote this is a little bit racist. But just slightly, I don’t want to say uneducated, because my purpose is not to attack, but damn- this person seems pretty dumb.
If we had any organization for only whites to
‘advance’ OUR lives, we’d be racists.
Make sure you understand the reason for these organizations. I’m also starting to think this is a young child writing this who has not gone through American History. This is laughable too- like man- just proofread what you just wrote. And where is your mother does she know you wrote this?
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Whats your point? Do you know what a Chamber of Commerce is for? Research before you write pointless statements that further show your ignorance to this subject.
Wonder who pays for that??
Do you know? or just asking for a friend?
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black America pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
Again, do your research… (I’m getting tired of writing this over and over) Black woman were not allowed in the pageant to begin with – so they formed a version for Black women. So don’t spin it as if they have both been around since day one and that whites are not being allowed to compete at the other pageant. Some important things in our society happened in the 1940’ and 1950’s- you should read about it.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students
scholarships… You know we’d be racists.
Over 75% percent of college funds is given to white students.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US
You may not have learned in school that black students were not allowed to attend universities with white students. There was a lot of fighting and national guards involved to allow integration of schools and all races are allowed to attend HBCU’s. You should walk around one of their beautiful campuses and educate yourself rather than spreading false propaganda..
Yet if there were ‘White colleges’, that would be a
This is laughable! A mostly white college in United States- hmmmmmm- never heard of any– lol!
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
Americans of all races marched in the Million Man March. You are sounding like you are getting all your good digs at other races in- but we should definitely NOT call you a racist- because you are TOTALLY not a racist… wink wink..
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you’re not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our pride in our country to close the border and send illegal imagrants home, you call us racists.
Who has called anyone a racist for closing borders and sending illegal immigrants home? Did you even know that Obama sent home thousands more illegal immigrants than Trump? DO you even know what this issue is that has people upset? It is how they are doing it!
You rob us, car jack us, and shoot at us. Steel our tax money, use our money for our vets and americans that are homeless by illegals getting Medicare and food stamps and all the resources our tax dollars go to pay for people who think our country is bad.
Who in the hell is “You”??
White people steal rob shoot at a much higher rate than any other race in this country.
Steal whose tax money- Everyone (except the wealthy) pay taxes, even illegal immigrants- bet you didn’t know that. They actually paid more in taxes than your President.
And Last time I checked, our vets represent every single race in country.
But, when a white police officer shoots a gang member that’s a illegally here or beats up a b drug dealer running from border agents and the law and posing a threat to society, you call them a racist.
I don’t recall hearing media or people call a white policeman a racist for shooting an illegal gang member. You hear the country mad and causing uproar at white and black police officers shooting unarmed black men. This is not a race thing at all- this is a fear of the police issue.
I am proud American white male….. But you call me a racist.
I doubt a random person off the street has every called your Proud White American self a racist- unless you started speaking to them in this crazy rhetoric you have spewed above, then yeah- they probably would call you a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists??
This is your belief and it is very small minded and comes directly from Mr. T’s racism playbook. racists come in all shapes sizes and colors- anyone with a brain knows this.
There is nothing improper about this e-mail.
The only thing improper about this email is that you have no facts and you don’t know the facts about why we have all these organizations and special funding for MINORITIES.
Let’s see which of you are proud enough to send it
The fact that you say on here- “Let’s see who is proud enough” kind of summarizes your whole statement. If you continue to tell yourself you are not a racist- over and over- unfortunately it will not help the fact that you are in fact racist. Which you would be better off admitting and then rewriting this and fix your language to read- “you’d call me a racist” to “ yes, I am a racist.”
I sadly don’t think many will.
Sadly? You think it is sad that only a few small minded people you know would share this?
That’s why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country.
I am very confused here- can you enlighten us on what rights we have had taken away from us? This is the stupidest statement in this email- it was not that hard to choose honestly, I had so many to choose from, but this one is real funny. “Lost most of our rights..” lol
I hope that we can get back to a prosperous country that was continue to grow full of diverse groups and opinions. And it is completely fine to not agree with different points of view, but that’s not what’s happening. Groups of people are being attacked because they are challenging the President. That is what a democracy is. It doesn’t mean people don’t love their country. It means exactly that, if you didn’t love your country why would you bother to fight to make it better for everyone.
Good luck this political season- and whatever line you sit on or across- don’t spread lies and hate. Don’t let this further tear the country apart!
