#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

THREAD: Heard of the Uprising at Long Bihn Jail? Stories of effective resistance to the US military have been suppressed to keep military & civilian folks alike from challenging warmongering-for-profit. Time to educate and agitate.

Vietnam became the first completely integrated US war at the start in 1954. The Black community was re-enlisting nearly four times more than whites, and volunteering to fight in dangerous combat units, to receive higher pay.
Black ppl have participated in every US war, yet they've cont to endure hostility not only frm the so-called enemy but frm fellow service-members. Integration into the military of marginalized | oppressed comm doesn't necessarily lead to an improvement of the institution itself.

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.
