Willie Lynch

I was moved. Today I watched a good movie. "Animal" It's in the rental stores. I am not a black man. I'm actually very white. However, I feel that there has been a terrible wrong done against a race of people that hasn't gotten the publicity of say the Jewish. Please read the document that was mentioned in the movie at http://www.daveyd.com/willlynch.html
It's very sad. We should all realize what a terrible plight the blacks have to overcome. Don't forget to watch "Crash" it was great too.
I don't take light of this. Since I was a young boy in an elementary school in Mobile Alabama, I have wondered why black people are different than me. That was in second grade. Then later in California I was bussed to integrate with the 'black' side. There I was taught, not by teachers, that I was a bad person for being white. At the age of 10 I wondered why is this an issue.
Please, let us all just get along.

Not sure I agree about the level of publicity given to the plight of Black Americans. I think that they have had more publicity for their problems, especially in America. How many different politically correct terms have we used to describe someone of African descent in this country? To my knowledge, Jewish people have only been called Jews in the last few decades in America. And I’m pretty sure that more school children know about Martin Luther King than know about the Holocaust.

Anyway, here are some interesting statistics I found in Time Magazine

“There are nearly twice as many poor white people living in the U.S. as poor blacks; the black poverty rate diminished dramatically--from 33.4% to 22.5%--during the Clinton Administration (it has risen to 24.7% under Bush); and the recent increase in poverty has been most pronounced among Hispanics.”

I’m sure that all of the racism in America is something that I “wouldn’t understand” because it’s a “black thing,” but there are also Hispanic things, Asian things, woman things, Indian things, Middle Eastern things, and yeah, believe it or not, White things out there. Bottom line—everyone has problems. Whatever you decide to blame your particular problems on is only your crutch and your excuse to not find a way around it.

That ought to get me some flamers!

Does not play well with others' comments are ringing in my ears and they are what the very arrogant as well as ignorant white extremeist may say. As a Hispanic Woman I see the many problems that America has as a whole with our vast diversity but to say in the slightest that the Black race (as they do mark on all application or documents)has had the same light shed on over hundreds on years being tarred and feathered beatedn, raped, publicliy humiliated, and stripped of a family unit, is just wrong. We all need to open our eyes to our own sterotypes and prejudices we do have towards each other. Over 12 million blacks compared to the 6 million Jews have been killed brutally in the U.S, not only in the days of slvery but during the ivil rights movement. I'm not saying the Jewsh people suffered less,the Holocaust was very real, (and thoes who think otherwise should visit a concentration camp as i did as a junior in high school) but lately America seemes more sympathetic to thoes abroad than to Americans who are here dying of prejudice, and humliliation and degregation, based of sex, race, and RELIGION! I am a very hard working and intelligent mexican american citizen, and it makes me upset that we cannot own up to the history this country we have chosen and right the wrongs. The first step would be to admit and take action

So, I’m a white extremist because I think that people should take responsibility for their own problems, no matter what race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation they happen to be? Wow. I’m such the radical.

I’m not saying there is no racism or that I condone racism. I’m saying that, in the present day, racism is not an excuse for why someone didn’t accomplish what they wanted to accomplish in life. Apparently you think that it would be an acceptable statement for someone to say, for example, that they can’t get a better job because they are black. That’s not a very empowering attitude, and empowering attitudes are the only thing that will ever help diminish racism.

Diversity causes friction. That will never change. The only thing more amazing to me than the diversity of the people of America is their sameness. As different as people are they share one thing in common—everyone always thinks that they got the rawest deal.

Tell it Preacher! Amen! i agree with DNPWWO completely on this one. There is no group (race, religion, creed, philosopy, etc.) on this planet throughout history that hasn't endured some form of oppression, and if you think that there is, then you ARE the oppressor.

I love it when things get a little controversial on my blog. Thanks for your comments. I guess I should update this a little more often.

Just in case anyone is interested....the so-called "Willie Lynch Letter" is a fake....a fraud....a sham. There is no historical accuracy in the thing. It is a 20th century construct, probably started on the internet for the purpose of race-baiting and hate-mongering. A simle "Google" search will reveal the so-called document for the fraud that it is.

Never take anything at face value, folks. Always question what you're told. Think independently, not collectively. It's a no-brainer.
