the argument by many [View all]

in the last 2 years or so is that economic parity between the races in this country will go a long way in solving the problem of white racism and AA economic depression because of lack of opportunity, especially in the urban areas or ameriKKKan 'homelands' as many believe the segregated 'urban' areas are and as I see the segregated "urban" areas of ameriKKKa. How ludicrous.

President Obama as a POTUS of distinction was faced with unprecedented white hate in our Congress and was still referred to as n***** by many in the alternative and main medias. His success didn't stop racists. Ophrah Winfrey and any successful POC, no matter how much "economic parity" they possess, are still seen for who they are, POC, therefore open to white racist hate and white supremacist threat. Charleston S.C. church massacre and the recent charlottesville white terrorist riot, murders and beatings of counter protestors to their hate prove that point. And Boston? Just proved to me that though 40,000 showed up to protest racist, white supremacist hate, they still had to show up to make the anti-racist point that while many oppose racists, many in this country support racism and white supremacist hate and I venture to say a huge portion of the 66 millions that voted for the idiot potus, do.

I just hope in spite of sessions attempts and local attempts to suppress voter turnout among POC that the numbers in 2018 will be so overwhelming as to put white supremacist on notice to follow their leader in the WH and crawl back into that toilet from whence they came.

Money, "economic parity" has NOTHING to do with white racism and white supremacist ideology.
