African American

Ok people. It’s time to stop.

You know what’s keeping all this supposed racism alive? People trying so hard to not be racist.

It’s true.

One of the biggest things to me is people trying to figure out what to call black Americans. Because for some reason you aren’t allowed to call them black Americans…?

Many have used the term African American.

This is incorrect.

Unless someone moved FROM Africa to America, they are not African American. They are just American. And if you are trying to refer to their skin pigmentation, say black American.

Just like I am a white American.

Somebody’s skin is only somebody’s skin. It’s genetic pigmentation based on their ancestor’s proximity to the equator.

Why are people making a big deal out of it?

I don’t get offended when someone calls me white. It’s what I am. It’s the color of my skin.

I’m sure that not nearly as many black people are offended by being called what they are as the media would have you believe.

Too many people are going with the Obama hype that racism is an epidemic. It’s not. I don’t know one racist person. The only ones I hear about are through the caffeinated media.

All that to say, lose the term African American unless your neighbor down the street literally moved to your suburb from Ethiopia.

Or start doing that to everyone. Maybe I’ll introduce myself as a Polish American. (I have never been to Poland but at one point in history my ancestors lived there.)

The best way to kill racism is to stop talking about it like it’s a big secret.

There are some truly racist people. Those people are bigoted jerks.

There are white people racist toward black people.

There are black people racist toward white people.

There are Asians racist toward natives.

Anyone is capable of being racist, it is not an exclusively white American thing to be. It’s just a disgusting thing.

Help end racism. Stop treating it like it’s the biggest issue America is facing.

 

Just a color

Guys, I’m sick of racism.

And when I say racism I don’t mean black vs. white because the newest thing is everyone vs. white, because all white people are jerks and discriminate against blacks. Apparently.

It. Is. Just. A. Color.

It’s like your hair. You don’t see blondes dissing on people with black hair and being called racist.

The fact of the matter is, we all came from the some place. Our ancestors all had the same color skin, way back in Israel.  The skin color variations come from the geographic locations that people went to after God scattered the people when they tried to build the Tower of Babel.

People who live closer to the equator, and thus have more sun time, have darker skin to protect them from the sunlight. People farther north have lighter skin because of less sunlight and needing less protection.

It is NOT God saying that people with darker skin are inferior, or that white people have special privileges.

The situation in Ferguson is a perfect example of racism against whites. Because if you think about, if a black officer had shot a black kid, it would’ve just been another case file. Or if the officer was Hispanic or Asian. But since the officer was white, it’s automatically discrimination and racism, which is ridiculous.

The phrase “All men are created equal” likes to be quoted, but doesn’t like to be practiced. It’s like people enjoy saying it to feel good about themselves and then talk about white power or discrimination against blacks.

And the darn media loves the play all of this up to get people angry. However, if we continue on this path, it’ll lead us to another civil war. Just look at the riots and violence in Ferguson. Do we really want that? Because the last one was destructive enough, and they didn’t have the technology we do today.

I beg you, all of you, to stop thinking about people in terms of their skin color and instead about their character. There are good and bad white people. There are good and bad black people. There is no stereotype that does every person justice.

What are your thoughts on racism?
