Since I am not really around white people and have an unintentional streak of not speaking to a white person in 7 months, it is pretty safe to say I’m pretty clueless when it comes to the melanin challenged. This had lead me to learn an interesting issue among whites, which came out of Barack Obama’s speech on race in America, and that is known as “White Resentment”.
Now I had no idea what this was called, but I certainly noticed that in the hip hop world white boys would get a little aggy when the issue of race would come up. For example, they would say, “what does that have to do with me? I never enslaved anybody” or “I just came here from Poland my ancestors never had slaves.” You know that typical white person speak (haha I kid). Anyway, I had no idea real white people held these same feelings now officially known as “white resentment”.
Call me what you will, but in a strange way when ever I hear white people complain about how their skin color hasn’t helped them move up in the world as some blacks do, I feel a certain warmth in my heart like it’s payback time. Is that wrong? Am I racist? Am I bigot? I told you guys a couple weeks back about my experience on a racists message board and I just feel a sense of “get back” when I see things like this on the net. I think this image pretty much sums up “white resentment”.
Anyway, I really don’t think there is such a thing as racism in America, I think it’s more of an issue of smart people vs dumb people (and the dumb people appear to be winning). There is smart white people that know exactly what Fox news and the right-wing media is doing and there is dumb white people that are being sucked into it every day (hey Fox News does have the highest ratings) that are the cause of half of the problems in the US today.
At the same time, there are smart black people in America, that know blaming the “white man” is only going to get you so far, maybe into a Jeremiah Wright pray group (I kid). And then there are dumb black people that live their life according to the profound teachings of Lil Wayne and Birdman, who are the cause of the other half of America’s problems.
You see my smart homies, we must try our best to kill these dumb people or at the very least educate their ignorant heads. I have no clue how we can do this, because after all these are the same people that did vote for George W. twice. But just remember when ever a politician tries to divide us on race, religion, gender or favorite stripper, remember that the real war is between the smart people who think for themselves and the dumb assess that follow the crowd.
