not racist when they are expressing their anger or frustration--they are reactionary.
No one has the right to tell me or anyone else what is right or wrong regarding my experiences, perceptions and observations. On a daily basis, white folks seem to feel they have the right to express themselves on just about any topic; and the temerity to tell others what to do, but when the script is flipped: there is OBJECTION. Why? It's called White Privilege. This is the VIP card to mainstream America and "their reality." Irregardless of how others feel. How dare anyone challenge their worldview. It's all part of the "members only" package included in White Supremacy.
Many Black people are tired of white folk's unsolicited opinions. We don't care if you get offended--we're offended every single day when we go grocery shopping, to the mall, the gas station, or just hanging out at the park. It seems that white folks are ready and waiting to interject their ignorance or bigotry.
And my personal pet peeve: listening and watching Black folks talk amongst each other--and arrogantly having the nerve to express an opinion when no one was talking to them. This in a nutshell is the way it is...like it or lump it. This issues needs to be discussed. And if there is anyone who has been insulted--I'm delighted. Sometimes, you have to get a dose of your own medicine so you can understand how hard it is to swallow.
