Quote:
"The most common mistake people make when they talk about racism is to think it is a collection of prejudices and individual acts of discrimination. They do not see that it is a system, a web of interlocking, reinforcing institutions: economic, military, legal, educational, religious, and cultural. As a system, racism affects every aspect of life in a country.

By not seeing that racism is systemic (part of a system), people often personalize or individualize racist acts. For example, they will reduce racist police behavior to "a few bad apples" who need to be removed, rather than seeing it exists in police departments all over the country and is basic to the society. This mistake has real consequences: refusing to see police brutality as part of a system, and that the system needs to be changed, means that the brutality will continue.

The need to recognize racism as being systemic is one reason the term White Supremacy has been more useful than the term racism. They refer to the same problem but:

A. The purpose of racism is much clearer when we call it "white supremacy." Some people think of racism as just a matter of prejudice. "Supremacy" defines a power relationship.

B. Race is an unscientific term. Although racism is a social reality, it is based on a term which has no biological or other scientific reality.

C. The term racism often leads to dead-end debates about whether a particular remark or action by an individual white person was really racist or not. We will achieve a clearer understanding of racism if we analyze how a certain action relates to the system of White Supremacy."

It is my understanding that it is against the law in Germany to display the nazi flag. What is the difference between that and the confederate flag? Obama is correct; that flag belongs in a museum.

"Let that hateful Flag Fly..."

A white woman flies the confederate flag in a black neighborhood. Take note of the fact that she moved into this traditionally black neighborhood in 2010. That's some nerve, huh.

Battle over Confederate Flag"

There are 19 known white supremacist groups in South Carolina. 19!!

Charleston Church Shooting..."

They don't want to take it down because it represents their heritage. This was the intent from inception. Pretty ugly.

Ya, it's getting pathetically way crazy here. I love that these "people" call themselves christians (I guess old testament, obviously). Ah, christians! They are endless in their creativity.

This story tells a pathetic tale of the Dumb and DUMBER. What a sorry lot.

Look at this ignorant shit. About heritage? I don't think so.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/obama-confederate-flag_55a6b506e4b04740a3dec7e2?

That rebel flag was not flying all over the south until the 1940s, 50s and 60s after the start of desegregation.
Don't believe it? Google it or whatever. Heritage? Nope.

From the diseased brain of ronald reagan...supreme court justice antonin scalia---the gift that keeps giving.
This man should remove himself from hearing the courts
case against affirmative active. Looks to me like he already has preconceived ideas concerning this issue. Looks to me he has no place on the supreme court, at all. Looks to me he has openly shone bias, at the very least.
FYI--scalia is a hardcore, conservative catholic and has stated he believes the "devil" walks the earth.

#y'allquaeda #vanillaISIS - to list but a few hashtags making the rounds. Apparently the criminals are asking for people to send them snacks and socks - I'm guessing the prayers aren't cutting it. Damn that mr. god guy, never there when they need him eh.

The ignorance sweeping the USA is simply beyond comprehension, it too is visible from space.

A large gang of white, heavily weapon carrying thugs hijack and occupy a federal facility and threaten violence. they state they are there to stay until they get what they want and proclaim they will not be taken alive. they are, also using the federal computers--that, also, is a grievous crime. The authorities have done nothing. NOTHING!
Now check out this shit.
