If black lives don't matter, nobody's lives matter.
If black lives matter, all our lives matter.
The police are just a part of the corruption of human rights globally. If they believe themselves superior to black people, they are capable of anything, just like the SS believed they were racially superior to the Jews, and look how that turned out. Racism is the belief in superiority over other races, it looks as if the cops are racist in the USA, looking at it from the UK.
Property and corporate wealth are what the police protect, if people get in the way, the police are the ones with tasers and guns and horses and batons and more guns. Factor racism into the mix and there you go.
White Fragility Robin DAngelo
“The problem with white people,” she says, “is that they just don’t listen. In my experience, day in and day out, most white people are absolutely not receptive to finding out their impact on other people. There is a refusal to know or see, or to listen or hear, or to validate
, DiAngelo’s words provoke. They cause discomfort and defensiveness. She picks at the disbelief and sensitivity white people exhibit when they are told they are complicit in society’s institutional racism. She challenges rather than gives solutions. Her book is a harsh wake-up call for white liberals, who she thinks could be much more progressive if they first listened.
She defines this as white fragility – the inability of white people to tolerate racial stress. This, she says, leads to white people “weaponising [their] hurt feelings” and being indignant and defensive when confronted with racial inequality and injustice. This creates a climate where the suggestion or accusation of racism causes more outrage among white people than the racism itself. “And if nobody is racist,” she asks, “why is racism still America’s biggest problem? What are white people afraid they will lose by listening? What is so threatening about humility on this topic?”
