1. I'm glad I watched the whole thing, MrScorpio...

I wasn't sure what I was watching the first few minutes, and after more revelation, I can see how valuable this is to kick and kick again.

I'm a white woman baby boomer (2nd generation Italian American, as if that could clarify) who's lived up and down the Eastern Seaboard, and Texas was the transition state.

This fellow has a great message. His monologue reminds me of some of what comes up again and again listening to the Mike Malloy show.

White people cannot deny our programming. Since my long-term memory is pretty good for some reason, I recall some of my own experiences from childhood in the Southertier of NY, and remember that it took me until adulthood to address the validation of what race apparently means to the majority of particular societies. Now, I've never lived abroad, but I have to believe this is not limited to the U.S.

Also, even though I found myself clucking my tongue at some of his questions, (Nope… of course not…), I agree how I might have answered based on early programming in my life, which means that THIS must be a point of discussion, if we are ever going to have a real conversation (at least on DU) about race.

I have a feeling that this guy was more extreme, and the epiphany struck loud. He's doing a hell of a lot more than I am. I'm just trying to live every day with something that cannot be forgotten.

Thanks for this video.

3. Why the low activity on this one?

Is this too long a video to watch?



Or, is it more exciting to talk about Donald Trumps vision of America. I'll guarantee this one has more food for thought than the the dangerous idiot Trump.

4. What's interest is that this video can be used to explain the Trump phenomenon as well… nt

5. Maybe you should cross post it?

Anyway… it's amazing what we are all capable of doing. The chatter on DU is but a sample.

6. K&R

 

Love the thought provoking test questions.

But if I need brain surgery, I don't want Ben Carson doing it!

7. Great Video.

I agree that we live in a world based on white supremacy.
A supremacy under-girded by a capitalist world system of exploitation.
