Well, Marley, your racist attitude got in the way of what would have been a great read. Lumping all White people together is as bad as lumping all Black people together. Chastising people for what your experiences have been is one thing; blaming everyone for thinking the same way and acting the same way is another thing.

You have consistently railed against White people, White culture and done so in a way that does not always make others feel sympathy for your cause.

On the other hand, you have made valid points and they are most understandable, especially from your viewpoint.

My Black friends know how to differentiate and not paint all White people with the same broad-stroked brush. They will be the first to agree with you on the centuries of black disenfranchisement and cruelty, but they will disagree with you on how you positioned your article to not only attack everyone as though they are monolithic in their thoughts, beliefs and attitudes toward people of color, but how you preach and instruct people how to behave.

Be angry; be motivated; be the change you want to see in others, only don't be so full of yourself that you miss the bigger issue: treating the White community as monolithically racist, stupid and incapable of change will not serve your cause, but it will push some people farther away from doing the right thing.

Your prior posts are full of rage against the White community. You speak from experience, but dragging everyone down will not lift everyone up. It's the Universe at work.

I was encouraged by the number of White people in the streets, protesting and carrying BLM signs, alongside their Black and Brown brothers and sisters. There is a sea change; slowly but surely (and not quickly enough for my tastes) SOME people are coming to their senses and fighting the good fight. I hope your strident preaching doesn't dissuade them from continuing to do more.

Best, to you.
