n*****, a vicious hurtful hate laden word, for many more years by white supremacists than you have been called "white supremacist" by angry and frustrated POC. That name I was described as was called out north, south, east and west. All there has been during all those decades of me being called a n***** is talk by my so called allies. Only talk to end the vicious hate behind the ONE name I have always been called by disgusting, despicable white racists. Who are you and the rest of these oh so offended "allies" to tell POC what our manner of protest should be and what tactics POC should employ to save lives, black lives, from the white racist police and citizen alike, like those oath keepers patrolling Ferguson??? Any POC knows what these white thugs are telling them in a very explicit manner.

POC have been conversing with our "allies", with admirable patience, for decades, and so far nothing has changed. So you have been called a name. Really? Any excuse or contrived offense is all that is needed by my so called "allies" to get their feelings offended by the "terrible" #BlackLivesMatter members. What a joke all you offended privileged citizens are to get on your high horse because someone called out some who might act in a manner that justifies the label. There are white racist Democratic Party liberals and progressives, especially toward the ideological center of our Party and center right. I engage with them everyday. THAT IS A FACT. Deal with it. POC have to everyday. Smile in my face and walk away muttering under their breath about those n******.

It's gotten to a point where with or without our "allies", this expired patience with our allies who haven't stood up in numbers enough EVER, to let whoever is in our Congress and Executive at any given time, know that systemic and institutionalized racism has to be ended is the clue, to me, that a majority of the privileged DO NOT want an end to their privilege.

The school integration you dealt with as a teacher helped to start tearing away at white enforced american segregationist apartheid, which you did not mention by the way, despite many reservations on both sides. People do not like change. Hell, many slaves did not leave the plantation because they were afraid of the change involved.

Most Caucasians exhibit enough unconscious racism precisely because of white privilege and that fact speaks for itself because there has been NO end to Systemic, Institutional and Cultural racism on any level of american society. I had left from this site, until primaries were over, and I'm going back to my respite from this site after this. It is the honey laden words of the privileged who use logic such as this that I had to respond to. I was in Boston during the integration of the public schools there and at a news station as an intern, and I got first hand info as to the anxiety, angst and spin of the many different groups and of the primary races involved. It was ugly. But I REPEAT, It started tearing down AMERICAN APARTHEID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It IS about some BS supporters period, like it or not.

I'm not posting very much myself since the dustup with #BLACKLIVESMATTER, which I support 100% with NO reservations at all. None. Nada. Zilch.
