White people that hire and fire are desperate to hire a black person qualified for a job. All the white people around me seem to run around desperately trying to prove they aren't racists by saying "I have lots of black friends".
Racism today has become this goofy notion that omnipresent evil within whites accounts for all social injustice.
I am privileged because my mom put herself through medical school on loans. It was chance - I was born into a family that was not impoverished (but not rich). I was lucky enough to be born to a hard working woman that provided for me. It has everything to do with chance/blessing/fate that I am not poor - not my skin color.
Well I don't believe in the big scary racist ghost anymore. It died when section 8 housing destroyed the neighborhood I grew up in. People got an unfair advantage based on their skin color and ended up failing anyway, destroying the place I grew up in the process.
Life is hard for everyone, not just blacks. I'm so ****ing tired of hearing about the plights of minorities in this country. I have cigarette burns and knife cuts all over my arms and chest and face trying to relieve all the ****ing pressure I'm under every goddam day - then some ****ing idiot tells me that on top of everything else, I'm a racist because I'm white.
You know what real racism is? Real racism is running around convincing black people that they have no chance to succeed, because whites all around them secretly hate them and won't allow it. Real racism is a white pastor in a black church feeding off the fear and desperation of 1000 hopeless people for applause and misplaced admiration.
