Reactions to "A White Person Complains" on Facebook


Reactions to "A White Person Complains" on Facebook 


     H G === >  I am not sure where this person is coming from. Has he ever had a history of his person-hood being denied ? Has he or his ancestors ever been enslaved? Has he been given freedom that really was not "freedom" ? Has he or his ancestors ever suffered under injustice ? Has he or his ancestors ever been kneel(ed) on and deprived of breath and of life by "the law" ? If he complained that his life matters, has he been mocked and told facetiously, "all lives matter" ? ... and shame on Morgan Freeman for believing that playing "God" in movies makes him a fair and reasonable judge of humanity.

     H G ===>  If anything, that whole rant by P G is nothing but an affirmation for "white racism". The length of his essay only makes it clear that he is unburdening himself of long-held resentment (maybe even hate) of a group or groups he thinks of as the "other". They are encroaching on his most vile character, "racist"! He resents that he cannot think of himself as a member of a "superior race". But at the same time, he hypocritically denies ever having a racist bone in his body !

     B B ===>  H G ... first off Pat did not say this she copied and pasted from someone else and Pat is a beautiful lady who is def not racist.

     H G ===>  B B ... We don't know who said it or started it .. but copying and pasting anything without a personal input only leads by default to the perception that one supports or believes the matter oneself. If one is not the author, one should say so and also declare one's position if any. And I apologize for mentioning her name but my comments will still hold for the original (unknown) author. This is also a great lesson for me not to respond or comment to "copied & pasted" posts. Let us put it behind us, please.

     B B ===>  That is alright ... that is your opinion ... and yes put it behind us.

A White Person Complains ! ~ by PG on Facebook


White complainers in America!

A White Person Complains ! 

~ by PG on Facebook ~

I have said this for a long time.
I am NOT racist and I will never be, but this is true.
I have often wondered about why Whites are racists, and no other race is......
Someone finally said it. And it was Morgan Freeman! How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans.. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'... And that's OK...
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you....
So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET....
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that??
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships... You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US .
Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow, and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us.
But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
I am proud...... But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists??
There is nothing improper about this post.
Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on.
I sadly don't think many will.
That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country.
We won't stand up for ourselves!
It's not a crime YET.... But getting very close!

[ From: Eleanor Preger
November 5 at 10:31 p.m.  ===> ]

The anthropologist invited the children from the African tribe to play one game.  He placed a basket of fruit near the tree and announced, addressing the children: "The one of you who reaches the tree first will be rewarded with all sweet fruits."

When he signaled to the children to start the race, they locked their hands tightly and ran together, and then they all sat together and enjoyed the delicious fruit. The astonished anthropologist asked the children why they all ran together, because each of them could enjoy the fruit for himself. 

To which the children replied: "Obonato".  Is it possible for one to be happy if everyone else is sad?  "Obonato" in their language means: "I exist because we exist."

R.I.P Sean Connery ~ by Hénock Gugsa


R.I.P  Sean Connery (1930 - 2020)

~ by Hénock Gugsa ~

He never came across as pompous, arrogant, or boring. He had a delightful swagger, but it was never over-done. Above all, there was always that silky-smooth voice that gave Bond's humor a very classy quality.🤔
