A thread was started on another site and The OP wanted to know if black people should get over all the discrimination that goes on in the world..Now this thread was emotional for me because as a black woman, I experience this all the time, at the store, work, school...and all my friends and family have and continue to go through this often...I was upset and still am..It was suggested on this thread that is we ignore the racism and discrimination...it will go away...so i have questions because i always think it is interesting to see how people really see things....
How many of you think that we as black people should get over it?
How many of you think that if we ignore the profiling, racial violence..like the woman in ga who was beat by a white man outside of of a restaurant in front of her daughter in nov while he called her "f&*^%^g Nigger B!T&H..and all the other instances of this that it will "go away"
How many of you know that there are people who teach their children hate even if you don't?
How many of you think I am wrong for being hurt and offended that people really feel this way when they could never walk a mile in my shoes and would never want to?
I don;t want people to worry about feelings..we want to be a group that debates so lets debate this..i won't be closing this thread if people dont feel the way I do..i just really want to know how other people feel..honestly...
