" I do not identify with the so called "white race". My skin is white. That is all. My perspective is simply my own. It has nothing to do with skin color...."
*perhaps we don't 'identify' with the so called 'white' race, but our minds have been socialized through the societies we live in to have certain thought processes and react/interact in certain ways to the world around us. it is our duty to root out all of the misinformation and negative/racist socialization that has poisoned our minds.
"the quote from RZA was simply to state that "the globe is about to explode with hatred and killing for pennies"
*brother, i do not believe that Dr. Kamou's statement is about pennies. it is about respect, equality, and justice.
"why do you assume that because I am white I am a white supremicist?????????? "
*i do not assume that you are anything. i do not know you and you do not know i. i am only reading yr post and responding to what i see. i did not say you were a white supremacist but this obviously hit a button with you. i said the notion of superiority is dependent on having someone to be superior over. this superiority complex does not have to blatantly manifest itself, it can be quite unconcious.
" I offer to you folks "
*WTF? you folks??? oh please don't get InI started with that. a self described 'white' man addressing a BLACK forum as "YOU FOLKS"! i'll assume this time that you didn't mean it as history defines it.
"precisely the reason I dropped out of school. "
*we all need iducation bredrin. i would not encourage ANYONE to drop out of school.
"I can tell that a lot of the posters here have no intention of finding the truth"
*whose truth? my truth, yr truth or the REAL truth?
"KILLING PEOPLE BASED ON THEIR SKIN COLOR IS WRONG.... " & "I only know in my heart that to kill me for the acts of another individual OR group is unjust and unfair."
*is that what has gotten you all worked up? the "extermination of the precious 'white' race"? or that Dr. Kamou is going to drive up to yr house and 'exterminate' you? we really must move beyond thinking that every generalized statment is to be taken so personally. the defense of Dr. Kamou is not about whether or not it is right to 'exterminate' anyone. it is about 'whites' criticizing, discrediting, and quite honestly attempting to lynch an african man for his response to a problem the 'white race' has yet to recognize, take seriously, and attempt to correct. please don't think that non'white' people are to blame for their reactions to racism.
QUESTION: do YOU beleive that RACISM still exsists?
