The literal definition of equality reads as follows:
“an organization aiming to promote racial equality”
Is it really about equality? I don’t think so. And here’s why: Because preaching equality will mean the end of White Supremacy.
We’ve been so focused on integration, but has the playing field been equalized?
Yes. There are more successful Black people than ever before, but why are so many African American communities in dire straights in 2014?
White people still control the wealth. And if they began promoting equality; they are going to lose that. And trust me on this: white folks believe in posterity. They can preach for the schools to be integrated and business to become more diverse; but the outcome of this is to gain political clout and favor of minorities; not give up what they possess. It’s always been about control. And that in a nutshell is the straw that will break the camel’s back.
If white folks equalized things; Black people could actually become superior–which they fear worse than death.
When you begin to really think deeply about things and ask why things are the way they are; it’s very clear what is going on.
Racism can also be compared to classism: you’re angry because humanistically, you know how it feels to be rejected because you don’t belong to “the right group.” That’s universal. However, you can change your class with proper education and diligent hard work. You can’t change your race–even if you become wealthy.
We live in a white racist society, like it or not.
When whites say they want to fight for equality; literally, it is an oxymoron, for doing so would be to your their detriment. White Supremacy is a power based system, and if whites are really serious about fighting for equality, by which, ALL have benefited from–even poor whites, visa-vi, White Privilege; in effect, to fight for equality means the end of White Supremacy.
And thus, this is the true reason why the discussion of race is not talked about with seriousness. Those who understand racial equality knows that this cannot happen unless the system they have been empowered by is totally destroyed.
The first law of nature is self-preservation and true White Supremacists (liberals) know this full well.
Black people must focus on education, economics, re-investing in our communities and building more political clout.
We must stop looking to white people for our salvation….our freedom will begin the day we realize our own net worth.
