Many people of color are constantly trying to get white people to empathize with what it means to be on the wrong side of the White Supremacy power structure (and by that I don’t mean KKK or neo-Nazi types).
White people weren’t lynched for the fun of it or for reasons as irrational as a Black man happened to look too long at a White woman or didn’t get out of the way fast enough when White people walked by or didn’t sell their land as chicken shit prices.
Look at the post-lynching photo below.
Look at the cross-section of whites in attendance, and look at the expressions on their faces. Some people are smiling; smiling for the camera when (or rather because) two niggers are dead.
Black people never committed this kind of community-rejoicing violence against whites -/ with the underlying reasoning behind being, “well, it’s a nigger.” White people of the era didn’t treat dogs this bad. And while that “era” is gone, it’s vey difficult to erase this communal mindset and way of perceiving Black — that we can string the up like dogs. And the fear that lynching instilled in Black people all across the nation extended far beyond the end of Jim Crow (that’s part of Trickle Down Slave Theory).
As far as I know, cities and townships and parishes not once broke off the relatives of Negroes who were lynched compensation for the lose of life and the pain & suffering the family experienced. Have any of these lynching zones even expressed apologies to the families and descendants?
Excluded Because Of Race
The true bold face of White Privelege is put on full display by these mid-century marketing tools.
In don’t know of any “No Whites Allowed” signs, and one were put up during the heyday of this bullshit, Whites would roll up into those places and kick some ass for even thinking they could prevent Whites from taking what they damn well please.
By and large White people don’t identify with any kind of ethnic group, so asking them to do so is pretty much incongruent with their thought patterns
