    it is my position that there is a system of white supremacy that oppresses black people.

    i have had a couple brothers tell me that black people are NOT oppressed.
    i had a brother tell me that black people threw off brainwashing in the sixties.
    i have been told that the system of white supremacy is NOT in effect and that black people must fight our own personal 'demons'.

    some folk are angry at black people. they feel that black people have 'dropped the ball'. black people 'self inflict' wounds upon ourselves.

    i suppose if you think that white people do NOT oppress us then you think this mess is all OUR OWN fault.

    i continue to believe that there is a system of white supremacy and that black people are oppressed and brainwashed.

    i do believe that brainwashing can be reversed, i have done it, and we can throw off the system of white supremacy.

    what do YOU think?

    peace

    No disrespect, but if you have 'done it' and still entertain such 'black people' and their feelings that there is no such thing as white supremacy, or that we are not oppressed then i would have to ask you to go another 180*.

    The system has not changed mush, it just looks a tiny bit different. But it is the same as it has been. One thing that has changed is that some of us can't see tru it, the way we could in the past.

    you did tell me in another thread that blacks over came brainwashing in the sixties.
    you frequently state that blacks self inflict on our own selves.

    that is your position, isn't it?

    Surely. You just stated that you believe that the brainwashing can be reversed and that YOU HAVE DONE IT. Yet, still entertain those of us who are still brainwashed and believe black people are not oppressed could mean that your reversal is not as complete as you think it is.

    Just stop paying attention to them and continue to do you. You can TRY to show them how you, yourself REVERSED IT, but some people will want to stay brainwashed out of fear of having to think for themselves.

    Some of us are afraid of our own potential.

    actually, you are 100% correct.

    i just cannot resist getting down and trying to convince people. that's my own fault.
    i keep hoping that one day i will convert somebody.

    oh well.

    Did I say that "Black people are not oppressed"

    Or did I say that "I do not view myself as a Black Man who is oppressed" in answering a question that you directed to ME?

    is it possible for a black man to NOT be oppressed when black PEOPLE are?
    can we separate ourselves out from our people?
