There are many that separated from MLK's dream years ago in favor of more pessimistic and separatist ideologies. Critical Race Theory seems to endorse this.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Black peeps, overall, are far more racist than whites. All they see is race. Most racial accusations by blacks are unfounded and have no basis in reality. Just look at the libs on this forum. Count the number of times and number of peeps they've called/believe are racist. I've banged and hung out with more blacks than any member of this forum and I've been accused of bein' racist gamillion of times. Callin' peeps racist is the only thing libs know how to do. They don't realize all they're doin' is settin' back race relations a hundred years, which is what they prolly want anyway.

I'll bet all libs on this forum that scream "racism" non-stop have little to zero black friends or ones they associate with. Hypocrite doesn't even begin to describe 'em.

Unfortunately, I believe racism is a bit more prevalent than you assert here. While there are several screams of 'subconscious racism' which I think are about as ridiculous as they could be, there are people who aren't racist in the traditional definition, but have protectionist actions (lone white girl changing sidewalks to avoid black males, or visa versa) to prevent racial issues, usually developed from personal experience or listening to the news.

It's unfortunate. It makes eliminating the higher racial tensions more and more difficult. The Charlottesville idiots enflamed things. But what this person is teaching their children is making sure that the race problems will continue.

Groups like Black Lives Matter are the catalyst from the other side - their initial purpose may have some validity, but they have undermined it, or allowed other people to undermine it, and have turned into the Black Panthers of a new generation.

Forcing people to not acknowledge there are cultural differences is BS. Change can only come from within each particular group.

After a lengthy, hyperbolic rant rationalizing the authors racism as Trump's fault and embracing Obama the great identity politics divider the penultimate paragraph reveals that the right kind of white people can be trusted friends.

Quote:
We can still all pretend we are friends. If meaningful civic friendship is impossible, we can make do with mere civility — sharing drinks and watching the game. Indeed, even in Donald Trump’s America, I have not given up on being friends with all white people. My bi-ethnic wife, my most trusted friend, understands she is seen as a white woman, even though her brother and father are not. Among my dearest friends, the wedding party and children’s godparents variety, many are white. But these are the friends who have marched in protest, rushed to airports to protest the president’s travel ban, people who have shared the risks required by strength and decency.
It turns out to be all about politics not race after all.

A lot about the op-ed I find repugnant.

Tucker Carlson talked to the author of the op-ed. I haven't had the time to watch it yet but will later.
Not a fan of Carlson's. Within the first 90 seconds he reminded me why I think he's an idiot.
But I figure some people might be interested...
