    As a Black person, are you angry about how you and others like you are treated in America? Is your anger different than a white persons? Do you think a Black person's anger and a white person's anger is perceived differently?

    Today’s Angry White Men look backward, nostalgically at the world they have lost. Some organize politically to restore “their” country; some descend into madness; others lash out violently at a host of scapegoats. Theirs is a fight to restore, to reclaim more than just what they feel entitled to socially or economically — it’s also to restore their sense of manhood, to reclaim that sense of dominance and power to which they also feel entitled. They don’t get mad, they want to get even — but with whom?

    Much has been written about the anger of white men, and in some ways, their anger is given support and the systems in place which have caused and supported white supremacy lend a sympathetic ear, for the most part.

    So, yes, we know that white men are angry, even if we do not understand why, given the fact that in this society, and perhaps in this world, they are the most privileged of all people.

    But what about the anger of black people?

    Nobody likes to talk about that anger; indeed, it is looked upon as a weakness, or worse, to be angry if you are black. President Obama has been careful not to appear “angry;” Michelle Obama was at one point early in the Obama administration characterized as “angry.” Black anger is deemed to be wrong, unreasonable, misplaced and misguided. Anger at having endured oppression sanctioned by the government has been flicked off, and black people have been told to “just get over it.”

    It is one of the biggest ironies that angry white people rebelled against their British oppressors because they hated being oppressed, but those same angry white people have not been able to understand or appreciate the anger of black people who are likewise tired of being oppressed.

    Is it that black people are still seen as being sub-human, with no capacity to feel pain?

    Question: Do you think how much money (wealth) you have would make you more or less angry about racism?

    It seems most black anger is in response to Whites total & complete disrespect of their perceived freedom from bondage & domination.

    The flipside seems that White anger is in response to Blacks refusing to accept their perceived notion that they are the superior race.

    I only get angry with whites when they kill my people. I consider them mostly irrelevant because I know that despite their racism they simply cant stop me if I dont quit out working them. I accept that they are going to have better and more opportunities but I have found that somehow I always manage to out do them by concentrating on what i need to do instead of worrying about the racism.

    You hit the nail on the head when you say that whites expect....no insist that you view them as superior. When you don't.. this makes them angry beyond belief.

    It is my belief that it most whites are controlled by the most violent and primitive part of their brain which is the reptilian side.... Everything that they have exhibited through history to me suggests so. These are some characteristics of both with the reptilian being the core of our brain and the most primitive...People who are more humane probably function more from the mammalian part of the brain. All 3 parts of the brain work in conjunction with each other but I can definitely see where one could be more dominant....
    The reptile brain is our action, or power brain, center of the will to power. While survival is its main focus, also generated here are aggression, the drive to establish and defend territory, fight-or-flight, deception...)
    While some of the behavior from the mammalian are primal urges and powerful emotions that ensure self-preservation, such as terror, rage, sexual desire, hunger....there are even more complex emotions such as love, compassion, empathy, envy, indignation and hope.

    black people have good reason to be angry. white people do not.
    when you are angry for no good reason, that is a mental defect.
