i, a mid-teenage (15) white rastafarian, do somewhat understand your arguements when it comes to the 'ignorance and arrogance of white people' but i also have some different views. I do agree that 'whites' are almost TOO caring and concerned for the black race and its problems and need to also deal with white peoples problems. But, every man should deal with the WORLDS problems and not seperate them with color. (I try to think of 'man' as a race and not seperated by colors, you must look at race 'like the color of ones eye') Black men and white men should focus on destroying all hate and the world's problems and not say "Your focusing too much on the black man's problems!" or vice versa. This problem of seperating man's problems by race is MAN'S IGNORANCE AND ARROGANCE.
I also feel that arrogant black men feel uncomfortable with the white man trying to solve their problems. I feel that some black people believe the white people think the black people cant solve their own problems.(sorry if you get confused lol) Which is not true.
Than some black people say "stick to your own problems."
Certain white people who are ignorant also feel it as an obligation to help the black community. THEY ARE IGNORANT.
My opinions shows the ignorance of not just my 'white' people but black people as well.
We must solve the world's problems before or even if we classify problems as 'black or white.'
I hope you understand my opinion.
(also, that television show showing ignorance as you said, doesnt just ask WHITE PEOPLE lol. watch more carefully haha)it shows MAN'S ignorance.
