  1. Fred Sanford says:

    You weaken your argument when you make up things like the title to the article above. She tries to draw a distinction between white and black racism, but she clearly states blacks are racist just like every other person that has a bigoted attitude toward another race.

  2. Tara Ellerbe says:

    Where can we find the entire video? Thanks!

  3. Eugene walker says:

    Where can I find the full video ?

  4. Malana Renay says:

    What is this woman's name?

  5. Wow. When I started watching this video I thought I would disagree with this woman, but she's right. While I think there is NO place for race based hatred or even prejudice, she is almost right.
    And isn't THAT a damn shame? Her premise is correct for all people of color, not just black people. White folks can't seem to wrap their heads around the fact that they (and I mean we because I'm white) are the minority on this planet. Something has to change and will. I hope soon.

  6. Go see her in the documentary called :Hidden Colors 3

  7. "Guten Abend meine Damen und Herren! Meine Mutter ist Deutsche , während mein Vater ist Afroamerikaner."
    3 of my siblings can pass as tan Caucasians while I and my green eye sister are dark. We know abasing and hate by whites first hand, while the younger 3 have experience the hate machine as infertrators. It's evident that the descendants of slave owners (lifestock) could possibly look at the descendents of beast of burden as equal. Supremist nature comes from being convinced that a people are born privileged.Lernen Sie, verstehen und respektieren die Vielfalt . Stellen Kameraden nicht Feinde…!!!

  8. Michael Willenburg Its hard to say whether she is "right" or "wrong" I am most certain that somewhere in this great United States there is a – As you so eloquently put it " A white person holding down black folks" The NAACP has nothing to do with it and oh yea for the record "white people, again how you put it" do have one.. its called the KKK. just as if you may not agree with what they do not all blacks support and defend the NAACP…The point of her message was the way racism is delivered. for example.. she may be a Doctor but somewhere she is still not enough simply because she is black. and while there have been advancements in the African American community trust and believe it is nothing. are we victims? again that's debatable but remember.. "White" people aren't native to this land either so that whole" go back to where you come from" shit is probably the last thing that should be uttered.The point was "White" racism has a stronger element of control whereas "black" racism comes from a place of hurt and anger…. I am sure you would hate me if I judge you on shit you had no control over…

  9. Her name is Dr Joy Degruy. @ Michael Willenburg , how can black people disenfranchise you ? NAACP was funded by white people. Do your research.

  10. The title of this post is misleading. The speaker didn't say anything about it being inaccurate to call black people racist. Her argument essentially was in the case of black people and white people specifically, that black racism towards white people as a group has no affect on the progress of white people as a group. Sure, just like in any ethnic group, there are black people that are racist. But black racism doesn't affect white peoples' ability to have choice in where they live, access to jobs, etc. Whereas on the other hand, white racism actually has the power to affect black people as a group. And there are people who choose to exert that power. White Racism can impacts where black people can live, access to jobs, quality of education, incarceration rates, and many other areas.

  11. Melissa Margain lol You are comparing the NAACP to the KKK? lol I'm not even sure how to approach that strawman argument. Either the KKK is good for white folk, or the NAACP is evil. lol Not exactly sure where you were going there, but nice try. As for the rest of it, I never said any of it, and neither did the OP, so I'm not sure what you are getting at there either.

  12. Michael willenburg you said..shes a doctor for crying out loud so my example has to do with what you said about being held down she is still stereotyped with a degree and all was my point. And ummm the NAACP has done sone shadY SHIT.. My point was again the difderence in which things are handled.

  13. Melissa Margain Nothing she said was wrong..She was talking about the system of white supremacy and why they cling to that illusion..100% on point with everything she said.

  14. White supremacy? The very President is half black! Now you are just grasping for straws.

  15. Dr. Joy Degruy Leary

  16. I have a more clear picture of the psychological behavior of why and how we function the way we do..Education is priceless!

  17. Nikii Benney says:

    When will people learn that their is only one race. The hatred is evil.

    Journey Of Man; A Genetic Odyssey!: https://youtu.be/-dDXIX-y6aY

  18. Michael Willenburg Could you elaborate more on how electing a black president has completely eradicated decades of systemic racism? Are you saying that it no longer exists because Barack Obama is president?

  19. Well it's not misleading in the sense that a black racist and a white racist aren't equal if you took the terms for face value. Since a white racist could, in fact, enact on their power to affect the black community. That is a factor of white supremacy and systemic racism as a whole. The problem is, when black racist comes up, it is to counter argue white racists, as if they are comparable. It's inaccurate to call black people racists in the context of arguing white racism and suggesting that white people are victims to black racism just as black people are victims to white racism.

  20. It's not an audience of Caucasians…

  21. BTW the whole lecture is about 90 minutes long and highly interesting

  22. This is highly interested and relevant. However, the headline is profoundly misleading. She does not say that it is "inaccurate to call black people racists". She says that black racism does not adversely affect white people as a group. Secondly, the audience consists of a variety of people, not just caucasians. I suspect it tells us something about the author of this blog…

  23. Whilst I openly admit that I haven't seen the whole documentary (I'm going to attempt to YouTube it after this post) I will say that I assume she goes on to clarify her terms. If I'm right she'll argue that everyone has prejudice, that's human nature. We need to be able to determine threats from safety on an evolutionary level. That's neither here nor there, neither positive nor negative, per se.
    The definition of racism, however, is flawed as it stands because we currently use it as a synonym for prejudice when in actuality racism is the power to act on your prejudices and affect a whole group of people.
    Ergo, it isn't possible for people of colour, in a country where they are not the majority, to be racist. What they are is prejudiced.

  24. Lillian Reed says:

    Michael Willenburg I believe you missed the point. Racism is about the power of one race to negatively impact on another race. Grant it blacks have made great strides within the years, but never have the garnered the ability to affect another race through economical, employment, housing, medical etc. etc. Some of these barriers are no longer enforced i.e. you cannot deny medical care to a minority, but basically, on the whole the racial infrastructure is powerful and still wielding societal powers that negatively impact on more than one minority race.

  25. Ok, I will entertain you. Where are black folk being held down exactly?

  26. Sonny Echols says:

    Lol! Just wait until mean ol modern day whitey decides to embrace what he's constantly being accused of, on that day you'll be correct like you could never imagine. Good luck with your little crusade, just don't cry too hard when you get what you're asking for.

  27. You know you answered a question, with another question right? I just want to know. You give the perception that you are well versed on what it is that the black community deal with in this country. Based on your question, it would seem that you believe there is nothing "holding down" black people? Am I correct?

  28. NOTHING. Nothing at all.

  29. Luci Ryan says:

    Michael Willenburg Illogical position. As the norm, whites remain in denial are refuse to tackle the white elephant. Blacks are "victims" of white racism and have been since arrival on this continent. Read a book, a newspaper, watch the news media. Bc she's a doctor does not mean that every Black person is a doctor nor is every Black educated. No, NAACP does NOT have huge foundations for every one. You are so misguided that it isn't worth the effort to inform. The reason the NAACP was formed is because of white racism, bigotry, prejudice, discrimination etc. Stay in your comfort zone, your world of denial. Cain will continue to destroy Abel until God's day of reckoning. Sad to say but it shall occur.

  30. Michael Willenburg, I researched the locations you resided and currently reside in and based on what I found, I can make a safe bet that you don't see black people too often in face-to-face situations. With that being said, have you ever spoke to a black person who has been unjustly stopped by the police for no reason, and then ask the same black person if they know other black people who have similar experiences? Have you conversed with a black person who has experienced not getting calls back from potential employers because of their names, but when they change their names on their resumes, they begin to receive replies? Those two examples alone deal with legal and economical issues that tend to affect the black community as a whole. If you have not, that's totally okay, but know that what you perceive is the truth may not be the same truth for others in this country. I would like you to ask me those same questions, I would love to have this dialogue with you.

  31. sorry to say but you are all fooled. allow me. you live in a white majority country (USA) where whites are in control. she is demonstrating this. now I would love to hear her version on 'reversed' racism in a black majority like Africa where blanks are in full control. everything she accuses the white 'racists' of, is identical in a black ruled country. she is sleazy with the race card and it may look convincing to you, but not to those that live where roles are reversed. nice try lady. blacks are equally RACIST! you know, somehow I don't think we should call this power play racism. racism is a word game. you will find everything she said in muslim countries as well and yet, muslim has no race. there are muslims from all races across the globe. they do the same to anyone not muslim. food for thought. she is taking you for a ride, get out the box and look around.

  32. It's all psychological construct from repetitive indoctrination. What she says is true in her own mind for sure.

  33. Her name is Dr. Joy Degruy and she's the author of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome.

  34. Anyone who has watched this video, commented here and incorrectly believes that white supremacy is still not alive and well all around the globe – you are fooling yourself. There hasn't been one place that whites have gone where non-whites have lived and not murdered and exploited to their utmost abilities. The lasting psychological effects of white imperialism is evident in colonized groups everywhere. Brown people lighten their skins to get whiter. Mongoloid peoples have the fat removed from the eyes to look whiter. Racism is not just a thought it is policies, rewriting a peoples history, using science to prove erroneous assumptions of racial inferiority…it is what whites as a collective have imposed on the world for a long time.

  35. Kai Millner says:

    Can you give me an example of a specific country? And she never said that if the roles were refersed, different results would occur. Just that, how things are now, black on white "racism" is not an actual threat.

  36. Kai Millner take a pick. any minority group in any country will be 'victimized' (racism).
    one way or the other.

  37. Fatima Bey says:

    Agreed completely, so yes we can have a bias feeling towards the other race, but when your racism affects the lives of an another entire group of people that's when it becomes racism.

  38. lol Not every white person is a doctor either? What is your point? She wanted to become a doctor, she chased it, and became one. Just like any other person on this planet can do.

  39. lol Really? I have lived in inner city Saint Paul as well as Minneapolis. Something tells me that you didn't research too hard.

  40. I'm going by what is on your facebook. If this is the case, then it should be easy for you to answer my questions then. I will wait…

  41. One, everyone gets stopped by the police. It happens. You aren't special. Two: "Equal opportunity employers". Even though the very concept is actually *unequal*.

  42. But that also brings up an interesting angle. Do you actually believe there are no black folks in Glencoe? Who's the racist now?

  43. I didn't say there weren't blacks in Glencoe, there aren't many, I assure you. Glencoe isn't a metropolitan either, where most low income black communities reside. Two, no one was calling you a racist, so let's not get defensive and deflect from point. Three, yes everyone gets stopped by the police, but we can quantify the occurrences of that event, with more people being of color getting pulled over than whites. Four, Equal Opportunity Employers wouldn't have been necessary had America not have the dark history of slavery and systemic racism. You should watch Dr. Leary's whole presentation…I've learned a lot from it, maybe you'll find some things you weren't aware of either. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRQ-Ci6LwVw

  44. " where most low income black communities reside" And who's fault is the fact that they are low income? It certainly isn't mine I assure you. And where are you getting this stat that more black folks get pulled over? http://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=tp&tid=702 "White (8.4%), black (8.8%), and Hispanic (9.1%) drivers were stopped by police at similar rates in 2008." "Four, Equal Opportunity Employers wouldn't have been necessary had America not have the dark history of slavery and systemic racism."….. That you suffered hugely from. lol Gimmie a break. This is just comical at this point. And my first statement stands, clearly I have proven that there is no further need to justify it. Go take a long look in a mirror.

  45. No one is blaming you for anything…what made you believe that someone was pointing the finger at you? Two, if you watch the whole talk presented by Dr. Joy de Gruy Leary, she clearly breaks down the effects of slavery into today. You proved that statistically blacks get pulled over more than whites, which is what I said in my above statement and the source that you linked also mentioned this "Black drivers (12.3%) were about three times as likely as white drivers (3.9%) and about two times as likely as Hispanic drivers (5.8%) to be searched during a traffic stop in 2008." Did you not see this? I look at myself in the mirror all the time, and wonder why is it that I have work harder than my white counterparts to prove myself. I look at myself in the mirror to try to understand what is it about myself that scares white people so much. I've looked in the mirror and I've come to the conclusion that is not me, it's this society that has been haunted by the evil past of America and until we as a country sit down and discuss it and figure out a way to amend for what's happened as well as identify the psychological effects this past has on today's society, maybe we can move on. Unfortunately, there are too many people who believe that the past should be the past and let's act like it never happened. In order to get to where you want to go, you need to understand where you are coming from.

  46. Ok, I have given up trying to educate you. Enjoy your victim card. Meanwhile I am going to go out and make the best of myself and my situation. I invite you to do the same.

  47. At this point, I've also come to the conclusion that you may just be troll or really isn't open to hearing other perspectives on the matter, which is your prerogative, but I've, personally, learned the most from sitting back and listening to other perspectives that I wouldn't have normally placed myself in. I urge you to watch the whole talk again at.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRQ-Ci6LwVw

  48. One more note before I go, since this is clearly not going anywhere. You don't have the authority or credentials to educate me in this matter, I live it everyday. I'll look for education from those who are qualified to do so in their respectful fields of study and occupation. Thanks for the pseudo conversation.

  49. Does anyone know how you can get the entire video?

  50. Asha Olujimi says:

    Melissa Margain very eloquently stated, no matter his reply remember white people are oblivious to their bullshit they have the canine mentality, shit and cover it up, so don't waste your time engaging in a duologue when the other persons forte is impeccable abnegation.

  51. Asha Olujimi says:

    you were reading my mind sister, i want to hear the whole speech as well.

  52. Asha Olujimi So far, in my investigation (ha!) I've discovered her name is Dr. Joy Leary. I'm surfing YouTube for her speeches.

  53. Asha Olujimi OK, I found it! On YouTube, type in: Post traumatic Disorder Dr Joy de Gruy Leary. It starts around the 1 hour mark.

  54. Michael Willenburg white cops shooting down unarmed black people is "white people holding down black people".

    you kinda missed the point of what she said —rather intentionally (i hope otherwise you're just slow).

    the power structure is and always has been run by white people I the u.s. —they have the power to determine how and where people live and work—they are white.

    black people do not have that power in this country and never have.

  55. Michael Willenburg white people did not need a "national organization for the advancement of white people" since they were controlling the country while murdering natives and enslaving and murdering black people.

    white people were already "advanced" –they were not starting from scratch after being freed from 300 years of slavery —so why would they need such an organization?

    lol

  56. she explained —white people still determine for example "do white cops get arrested for murdering UNARMED black men and 12 yr old boys?"

    they determine where people live and what FUNDING those places get from the government…the corporations are all run by WHITE people not black people and they are the ones who actually run the government of this country via lobbies etc and they also control the purse strings of the education system.

    rather than asking this same asinine question time and again why don't you explain exactly how black people run this country?

  57. I suspect hes kkk and is trying to "play" as if he doesn't get it.

  58. Kwame Brown says:

    It's the equivalent of saying male sexism is equal to female sexism. A sexist woman doesn't have the power to effect a man, while a sexist man does. Like the professor, I'm referring to each group, not particular incidents. A worked for a woman who disliked men, and took her problems out on me, so what! Women have to deal with sexism in ways and degrees I'll truly never experience or understand. John Lennon wrote a song entitled "Woman is the Nggr" of the world" one of the most profound songs I've ever heard. Apply everything I posted in regard to gender, and switch it to race.

Women have to deal with sexism in ways and degrees I'll truly never experience or understand. John Lennon wrote a song entitled "Woman is the Nggr" of the world" one of the most profound songs I've ever heard. I know I am a sexist, because I have been psychologically conditioned to be. The best I can do is choose not to act on my sexist thoughts, which is a choice I try to make. Most times I succeed, sometimes I fail. The first step to healing any psychosis is admittance. Apply ever
    ything I posted in regard to gender, and switch it to race.

  60. Michael Willenburg typical argument…

  61. Naawp – police, congress, senate, city councils, judges, corporate America etc. Lol

  62. Based on my observation thus in my opinion, Racism in USAmerica is an Anglo issue that non-Anglos must continually respond to. I absolutely agree, it is fear — and willful ignorance — of the loss of perceived power, certainly privilege, that drive the racist behavior.

  63. Akey Tenhut says:

    Lol yet whitesvin the comments still denyingvthe obvious. I think honestly it useless even wasting breath on the issue. Our ancestors in the carribeans eho responsible for the end of the atlantic slave trade did so not by talking to these people, they simply went back to their war science amd made toe immpossible happen. These peole are all over the world doing the same oppressive sneaky bullshit and its time to put the true minorities in their place ine way or the other. Negotiations with devils will always fail

  65. Sidi Kah says:

    White people just don't want to accept their history. Despite all their efforts to hide it and sanitize it, the record of their evil, criminal, violent, march across the planet devoring and destroying everything in their path, is still there for everyone to read and see. As the decendents of those mauraders, usurpers, invaders, destroyers, vandlizers, see their ill gotten inheritance slowly slpping away, they bury their heads deeper into the ground of denial and accuse the decendants of their victims of being just as mean, hateful, greedy, and evil as they are. I suppose this makes them feel justified in their historical accomplishments. What they don't want to admit is that they know that eventually the laws of God, the laws of justice, the laws of nature, are going to catch up with them and no amount of military, economic, or magic power is going to save them from reaping what they have sown. So, you shouldn't even open your mouth and say anything unless it about how you are going to give your life if necessary to end WhiteSupremacy and redistribute the stolen land and profits from the stolen natural resources, and give reparations to all the nations of people you have exploited, enslaved, attacked, bombed, invaded, oppressed, and destroyed. And by the way this is not personal. I have White family members and friends who I love as brothers and sisters. I am sure they understand that just because you belong to a certain group doesn't mean you have to defend it's wrong evil actions. That's one of the true characteristics of racism and being a racist. That you help your group do injustices to another group and you defend those injustices in every way.

  66. lol, your last sentence is about the only truth in your post. the rest is racist profiling. but since you on this 'white man' issue, if it was not for animal husbandry, grain technology, Tesla, Einstein, etc, you would not have a computer type this rhetoric and hate you posting. come to Africa and learn something about your history! see the other side of the coin!

  67. That's a stupid comment.

  68. Zaidi Baraka says:

    I don't give a f**k what 'white people' think about me! What I do know is that their racism is what controls my life: from the police, who are suppose to protect and serve me, to Congress, whose right wing faction is doing everything to destroy black and brown communities. They can say what ever their racist pattern of thoughts govern their mouths to say about me; but if they get in my way, I will do all that can to remove them out of my way! Frankly 'white people' should get on their knees every night to think GOD that black people are so forgiving of their historical racist deeds that are ongoing in their present day denials that they are racist. Any 'white' person born in America, today, is a racist, simply because they are the beneficiary of all the privileges their white skin affords them at the expense of black and brown people!

  69. Zaidi Baraka says:

    Jason Lockwood You just don't get it. America's only redemption is through the way of black people. When you accept that truth, you might be saved. Another word for it is EMPATHY. EXCHANGE THAT FOR YOUR FEAR, AND PERHAPS YOU'LL BE SAVED.

  70. Sarah Hodges says:

    Zaidi, can you not here the extreme racism you spout in saying anything holds true for "any white person born in America". As if you can lump all white people together. What if I said something about "all black people born in America"… it would inherently be false – it cannot hold true for every single one. I have many Black friends, Asian friends, Hispanic, German and Swedish friends as well. And you call me racist by default. – hypocrite.

  71. Zaidi Baraka says:

    Sarah Hodges If you noticed I put 'white' in parenthesis; meaning you're embracing racism when you claim you're claim you're 'white', and the privilege it automatically confers on you. White is SAFE; and Black is NOT! 'White is not a color or race, it.
    s social construct that makes your life more valuable than a 'black' person–a social construct, that in America, makes you a maligned class. Correct yourself before you wreck yourself! Go back and listen to what the professor said!!

  72. Sarah Hodges says:

    The segment of video I watched is ridiculous. There are in fact black police officers, black judges, black city officials, black senators and house representatives. And though Obama is technically not black they sure pushed that card to get him elected. How is it that white people have power and black people have "none"? Are you now trying to oppress me by telling me I can no longer claim I am white because doing so is racist. That is also absurd.

  73. Zaidi Baraka says:

    You're obviously delusional and in denial. I hate you all I want, and it won't make any difference in you getting a loan to buy a house, or the police dragging out your car and beating you upside the head because your skin color makes you suspicious. You can hate me, and the police, and the powers of banks and institution will make I can't move next door to you; or red line my neighborhood to prevent home owners from achieving values in their homes! I tried to be reasonable and patient in my explanation; yet you continue to be blinded by the R-word. You have to get over your fear and denial, and learn to empathize with people of a darker color, and then you could understand what I'm saying. But if people, who look as you do–and I mean 'white' people refuse to listen and EMPATHIZE–then, THERE IS NO HOPE FOR AMERICA. BLACK PEOPLE DIDN'T INVENT RACISM; WHITE PEOPLE DID! AND THEY'RE STILL PRACTICING IT!

  74. Sarah Hodges says:

    1. I don't hate you. 2. I didn't say YOU had power over me, I said some black people have power over some white people (I also have no direct power of you individually if you think about it) 3. If you can't get a loan I bet it has more to do with credit records than your skin color. 4. You have now called me all kinds of names in your attempt to be "patient" and I see this discussion is pointless. I hope someday you can see that your hatred does no good and there are steps you can take to improve your life if you stop blaming other people for all your troubles. Ignorance is apparently not bliss since your still so upset.
    Good night

  75. Zaidi Baraka says:

    Sarah…Sarah…Sarah. Denial is NOT a river. Best Wishes in your life! BTW, I have white friends, as well; but they're NOT 'white'.

  76. Nixon Manuel says:

    Dear A. Moore, could you make it easier for us to find the sources? Many times, I like to search for full videos, but there are no traditional references.

  77. Nixon Manuel says:

    Melissa Margain Ignore him.

  78. I am? what part? blacks are not racist, right? what about the blacks singing "one white farmer, one bullet" and 74 000 whites murdered in the last 20 years. they made a law where all businesses must be BBBEEE and no whites are allowed to be employed. that is discrimination based on color. murder based on color. by your standards this is not racism, right? get out the box and look around, america is a tiny part of the world. oh wait, this news never leaves our borders

  79. Kai Millner. Don't you read the papers or watch the news? Blacks are attacking and killing white people all over the country. There are daily examples of black on white racism.

  80. Taylor Hyll says:

    Michael Willenburg listening? neither are you A typical white male.

  81. Michael Willenburg At no point in history at the time it was happening did the white majority ever believe that there was a problem with racism. So they never saw a problem with lynching men, women and children. Nor did they consider it a problem to cut off parts of the body to sell as souvenirs, or even to take photos for commemorative postcards. They even let their children out of school early, as if it were a national holiday, to view these lynchings.
    There are numerous similarities between Hitler’s Germany and the good ole U.S of A.

    Madame C.J. Walker, was the first female millionaire (black or white) in 1911. That year there were 64 lynchings. So Black accomplishment in no way means that whites just stopped being racist. There have been Black Ph.Ds, MDs, and other graduates all throughout history, which just motivated the white majority to make even more restrictive laws. Which then of course begs the question, if whites were so superior why did they need the laws in the first place?

    This is why the white majority goes to the ghettos that white supremacy built to “prove” their point. Apparently only outside of Europe are ghettos places where people thrive.

    So it has never been the case that Blacks could not succeed, it was that whites were afraid of them doing so, and since they had the power to throw up roadblocks they did so.

    Some facts:
    Only (.25%) that is one quarter of 1% for the math challenged, of all college admissions are based on affirmative action, not the 100 percent that racists claim. Why else would they turn 10 shades or purple and froth at the mouth at Black accomplishment?

    As of December, 2011, there were only around 358,000 black adults in the entire United States receiving cash welfare.

    Let me repeat that: 358,000 black adults in the entire country receiving cash welfare.

    That is 358,000 black adults out of approximately 29 million African American adults in all, which any calculator — even the kind used at FOX or by Paul Ryan — will readily indicate is only 1.2 percent of the adult black population.

    According to the CDC 70% of all drug users and dealers are white. Black and Brown.
    COMBINED make up 25%. But since cops arrest Blacks sometimes at rates 8x's that of whites, a racist would see this as proof that Blacks are the the majority.
    Once again, the aggressive stupidity of the racist.

    Now if you have more than a couple of racist bones in your body, you will not see how aggressively stupid racism is because racists listen to other racists, and the learning curve is not a curve at all, it is a straight line which frequently drops below the horizontal.

    The white majority ear that they are not as smart as they would like to believe and a whole lot more vicious than they would care to admit.

  82. At no point in history at the time it was happening did the white majority ever believe that there was a problem with racism. So they never saw a problem with lynching men, women and children. Nor did they consider it a problem to cut off parts of the body to sell as souvenirs, or even to take photos for commemorative postcards. They even let their children out of school early, as if it were a national holiday, to view these lynchings.
    There are numerous similarities between Hitler’s Germany and the good ole U.S of A.

    Madame C.J. Walker, was the first female millionaire (black or white) in 1911. That year there were 64 lynchings. So Black accomplishment in no way means that whites just stopped being racist. There have been Black Ph.Ds, MDs, and other graduates all throughout history, which just motivated the white majority to make even more restrictive laws. Which then of course begs the question, if whites were so superior why did they need the laws in the first place?

    This is why the white majority goes to the ghettos that white supremacy built to “prove” their point. Apparently only outside of Europe are ghettos places where people thrive.

    So it has never been the case that Blacks could not succeed, it was that whites were afraid of them doing so, and since they had the power to throw up roadblocks they did so.

    Some facts:
    Only (.25%) that is one quarter of 1% for the math challenged, of all college admissions are based on affirmative action, not the 100 percent that racists claim. Why else would they turn 10 shades or purple and froth at the mouth at Black accomplishment?

    As of December, 2011, there were only around 358,000 black adults in the entire United States receiving cash welfare.

    Let me repeat that: 358,000 black adults in the entire country receiving cash welfare.

    That is 358,000 black adults out of approximately 29 million African American adults in all, which any calculator — even the kind used at FOX or by Paul Ryan — will readily indicate is only 1.2 percent of the adult black population.

    According to the CDC 70% of all drug users and dealers are white. Black and Brown.
    COMBINED make up 25%. But since cops arrest Blacks sometimes at rates 8x's that of whites, a racist would see this as proof that Blacks are the the majority.
    Once again, the aggressive stupidity of the racist.

    Now if you have more than a couple of racist bones in your body, you will not see how aggressively stupid racism is because racists listen to other racists, and the learning curve is not a curve at all, it is a straight line which frequently drops below the horizontal.

    Whites fear that they are not as smart as they would like to believe and a whole lot more vicious than they would care to admit.
    Blacks have done a lot even with whites killing, bombing, raping, beating, torturing and lynching them. What then would happen without any blockades at all?

  83. Whether you call it bigotry or racism judging anyone by the color of their skin is wrong. Too many blacks are very vocal in their hatred of anyone with light skin. Actions like the "knock out game", Black Panthers creating a problem for white people wanting to vote and reports of blacks rioting, looting and burning creates caution, if not fear. Blacks invading restaurants where people are eating, and they could sit down to eat, creates resentment – not sympathy for them. BTW: Leftists pull out the "race card" so often it no longer has any power. It's like the boy who called wolf. People quit listening. I have black friends who are offended by the actions of militant black people. Since BHO took office race relations have been set way back. MLK, Jr. would be appalled. His niece has publicly agreed.

  84. Democrats keep electing democrats who do nothing to improve their communities. Repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting different results is one definition of insanity.

  85. Michael Willenburg Excuse me, you have always had White Entertainment TV, White pride day and white history month. When I was a young man, you could hardly find a black person on TV. In all of America you NEVER read about black people being a part of American History(unless it was slavery). Almost all colleges discriminated against black people. They said stay out of our colleges and get your own..we don't care what you call it just stay out of ours. The same was said to black people about Beauty Pageants. as well as magazines. Further back in time, one of the biggest White Pride movements was the MAJOR white pride marches by the KKK in Washington(back in the 1920's). All you saw or read about in the media back then was white, white and more white.

  86. Amazing, I wish I write as well as you. You have said everything that I have been thinking of but have not been able to put it in writing so eloquently as you. You are 100% correct.

  87. Absolutely correct

  88. Alvin Hall says:

    Michael Willenburg Are really that dumb and ignorant!

  89. Not only is the title misleading, because no one in the group had a response to her question regarding black prejudice, doesn't verify that there is no prejudice.
    I am not afraid of black people, she's totally off base to use a blanket statement of that sort aa well as her very definition of racism is not correct. PHD or not, she has misconstrued the concept.

  90. Tim Kinley says:

    Michael Willenburg-Bullshit. She is trying to school you on what racism actually is, not the textbook definition written by racists. Pay closer attention to what she is trying to say.

  91. Personally, I've always wondered how people could say "black racism," as if it actually exists, and not feel embarrassed. Perhaps, the false belief allows for the nonexistent "equal footing" in a racist society African-Americans must endure on a mundane basis.

  92. Michael Willenburg You're not smart enough to ascertain this video. For example, you asked what if there was an NAAWP without taking into account the reason as to why NAACP exists in the first place. Secondly, the original founders of the NAACP were white socialists (google Mary White Ovington). Thirdly, it's not exclusive to African-American people; thus, it stands for National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. This brings us back to the original point. White people were not enslaved for 400 years; politically, educationally and socio-economically disenfranchised. Did you already forget this stuff or are you just pretending to be stupid (which is a common characteristic of white supremacist)? So what kind of advancement would white people need in the first place? Your original question is an absurd one.

  93. Michael Willenburg Was there a time in America where black people as a whole entire race were denied basic human rights and privileges strictly based on the color of their skin? Can you name a time in America where that was true for white people? Laws like affirmative Action had to be put in place just so black people could get the same treatment as whites when it came to jobs. Even recently we have seen many cases of unarmed young black men murdered with no consequences to those responsible. The reason groups like the NAACP were created was because for over 400 yrs black people were intentionally discriminated against and oppressed. You don't need an Association for your advancement if you are never held back.

  94. Kay Dei says:

    Michael Willenburg the idiocy of your statements is mind baffling. It's obvious you're deflecting. She's a doctor, that's your counter argument? She's a doctor, she got it made so it's all good? you are either very stupid, or you're being intellectually dishonest. I say you're the former.

  95. I think when she used the word afraid she is using it in a stipulated formatting by saying that the fear is hidden and not known. I believe there is a slight fear of other races by everyone because of the unknown, the stereotypes, the history and what not.

  96. Chris Nunez says:

    Where's the rest of this lecture? I want to see the whole thing! We all need to see the whole thing! she is articulate and though softspoken, a powerful speaker/teacher.

  97. There's only one race – the human race.

  98. Michael Willenburg white people have two major organizations geared at their advancement in this country they just changed the name of the organization to Congress and the Supreme Court. Don't be greedy now.

  99. Joe Finn says:

    This lady herself is racist.I agree that whites are afraid of blacks but I believe that comes from two things being afraid of being called racist and from the stigma that has been created by a few in the black community of violence I am sure some would disagree with that but this comes from my experience and yes black people are racist as well and so are races from all cultures and not just here in America

  100. Michael Willenburg you are an idiot andyou are EXACTLY apart of the problem. just because you don't see something for what it is, doesn't mean it isn't what it is. you can argue all day that the sun doesn't exist. but just because in your world, in your head, it doesn't, doesn't mean in reality that it doesn't rise and set in reality.

  101. Dee Johnson says:

    Michael Willenburg the NAACP was created by WHITE people.

  102. Joel Hunt says:

    I believe that anyone can be racist, and yes, that includes black people. Don't get me wrong, I understand what she's talking about here. Really she's discussing "institutional racism", in which case I agree that there isn't any institutional black racism in the Western world. However, an institution only becomes racist because its constituent parts are racist (the same is true for sexism, homophobia, ablism and all other manner of prejudices). An individual person of any race can be racist. Not necessarily against white people, either. Any race can hold negative views about any other race based on nothing but prejudice and ignorance.

  103. I am black and I am afraid of some black people…I am from Newark N.J. I have moved south, in Newark the gang violence is so bad…I am afraid to go home for a visit, i am afraid of some white folks too, the ones that will not let me get the job because I'm black but have a degree in the field…………and experience too.

  104. That would be write, if the definition of racism were act of discrimination that affects a race as a group. That is not the word's definition. If you have a prejudice or discrimination act against someone because of their race it is already racism.

  105. Okay so I'm white, but I don't understand this woman. Yes, there's racism, that's obvious. Whoever said that it's just about black and white though? If she's saying (as the title of the video suggests) that it's erroneous to call black people racist (redefining it through the video as affecting a culture of people), then what about black people versus Middle Easterners (more specifically, Muslims, but we're talking race, not religion), Chinese, Natives, Latinos or any other ethnic group OTHER than Caucasian? I'm not saying whites don't do this too, of course that happens. Racism is not just saying "I hate you" to another race. It's also not limited to affecting an entire culture. Racism is saying or doing something derogatory to another person or group simply because that group is different from you.
    I agree with her in part that cultural racism is a moot point when you try to define it as black vs. white, but I'd like her to limit this as being true as 1) culture to culture and 2) in the United States. Of course blacks (and other ethnicities) can be racist towards whites. It may not affect us as an entire group, but it's still racism. As far as being true in any other region of the world, I don't know and I somehow doubt she does, either. I know I was on the receiving end on racist comments when I was young because I was labeled as a "war mongering, gun-toting, ignorant American"… at 6. Epithets flung my way (and my siblings), rocks thrown, house vandalized. It doesn't matter if this was done by white, black, purple or polka-dotted people. This was racism simply because I happened to be born a certain way (in this case, a country).

  106. Willenberg…no. As long as her daughter could go missing or her son can be shot in the street…she is right. One doctor doesnt mean shit in the big picture. She can't wear that phd to the store. She gets discriminated against too Come on!!! one black president..does that mean everything is alright?

  107. Tee El Bee says:

    "everything she accuses the white 'racists' of, is identical in a black ruled country". South Africa? Huge Black majority – Whites income is 6x higher.
    Namibia? Huge Black majority – Whites control the wealth.
    Any non-European country where you find Whites you find a history of colonialism and Racism, including those where Whites are in the minority – India, China, Caribbean, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Canada etc etc.
    Any country you find a colonial past you find that Whites have clear privilege through economic systems. This is basic historical fact backed up by data and statistics. Will there be poor Whites? Yes. Will the non-Whites be even poorer? YES.

    Because of centuries of Racism and colonialism, White people are viewed in a distinct way that is different to how Black/brown people are viewed. Again, a basic fact.

    This video explains the reality of this situation. Yes, Black people can be INDIVIDUALLY discriminatory or prejudiced. Muslims can be too! But, that makes little to no difference to the systemic reality that White people retain power and privilege in almost every area of socio-economic existence, across the globe, wherever European colonialism has existed.

    'Racism' is something specificially initiated by European people. European people need to take some responsibility for getting rid of it. Except clearly many do not want to lose the privileges that come with it…why would they?

  108. While I have not yet watch the video my comment is a reply to your naivette on this subject. I beg to differ with you. I do know the history of white people of Europe, Western Hemisphere and what they have done in the US, South America, Carribean, Australia, China, Viet Nam, Korea, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, the Congo, Namibia… and the list is so very long to write all the nations needlessly attacked by white people for the last 400 years. Then their is the case of Black people in this nation and I can honestly say that in my 65 years of life, 90 % of all contacts I have had with white people in this nation have been adversarial in one form or another. So if I get burnt by fire, when I see flames I am cautious thinking of all the other encounters I have had with fire. I learned what racial hatred was from white people and the first time I heard the word nigger it was from white people. It is white people with the xenophobic racism problems they display all over this planet with impunity. Their is a racist connection with the racism of this nation and with the plethora of wars initiated in Africa and Asia by the white people of the US and Europe and even Israel. During the 20th century white peoples wars and related incidents caused the death of about 300,000,000 mostly civilians.

  109. When people learn that white supremacy is evil that oppresses people of ALL ethnicities and nationality, then we will progress as the human race.

  110. True. There many ethnicities and unfortunately white supremacy negatively effects all of them including white european ethnities.

  111. Michael Willenburg https://milkvid.com/h_hx30zOi9I?uuid.
    i think everyone should watch this video. I think its speaks volumes that the host is white also.

  112. Jon Lman says:

    She poses a great question, how does black racism affect whites? People in the audience don't know what to respond because nobody ever asks that question – black racism is never examined while white-shaming is America's favorite pass-time. I could expand on her question a bit more: what is black racism? How big a problem is it? Does it affect whites? If so, how? I'll say that the first answer to her question is that black racism is so prevalent that it never asks how whites are affected by blacks. We just don't know how whites feel because we don't bother to let them talk about it.

    Here are some small ways I know black racism affects whites. First off whites are very self-conscious to go into black neighborhoods and are made to feel far more out of place than blacks do in whites. I'm a black guy in Harlem and my white girlfriend's race is constantly mentioned, whether it's calling her "snowflake" or the guys on street corner's telling her "don't be scared snowflake we got your back" or the chicks at mcdonalds treating her very differently than they treat their black customers. Almost every member of the black community knows several white jokes that are told out loud with no shame in broad daylight, making said white person uncomfortable. We can joke and poke fun at whites as a whole but their freedom of speech is severely restricted if they want to do the same. Another is that a small but very vocal segment of the black community demonizes the entire white race year round and they are given far more airplay than they deserve. White shaming is all over the internet and seeps into mainstream media discourse as well.

    What about police brutality? This myth of the amazing white man who suffers no ills because clearly he is the evil one who inflicts ill on others is so prevalent now that we as a society cannot even register that white people are killed by police everyday, in greater numbers than blacks. The families of the victims who were killed in questionable circumstances receive barely any attention and cannot get on air to demand justice. Their cries for help are muffled, and telling the police #blacklivesmatter stops being racist does not help the white victims at all. Were I in the audience I would have mentioned these points.

  113. Bill Croft says:

    This is a white "American" and black "American" issue.You seem to forget there is a big world out there and in much of it there are no black people or white people yet there is still racism and predjudise. Those are the human issues and they are bigger and more complex than black and white. She is completely correct about the cause however. It's all based in fear. The fear is based in ignorance.
