Don't take the thread title the wrong way, it's more of a black perspective vs. white perspective is what it should have said. I just want to start off by letting y'all know that I am a white male, from Texas. Hopefully you don't just click the back button or ban me. I have questions. Before I get to the questions I would like to let y'all know a little about me. I was raised in a very small town in the country (300 people max) mostly white people. I was raised Seventh Day Adventist, when I got older I became a Baptist, I have spent time in Catholic churches and non-denominational churches. I was not raised to hate or feel superior to anyone, I was raised that all men and women are equal. I don't actually have any black friends (hence the reason I'm here to ask questions), not by choice, the only friends I have to this day are those that I grew up with (the only black family that I know didn't have any kids my age to grow up with). My first question: I have gone my entire life believing that all people especially blacks want to end segregation, yet now I hear black leaders speaking about this and I read online about how black people want segregation more than ever especially those with the Muslim influence. Do all black people feel the same way about white males? Everywhere on the internet I read of what I would almost call hate. Even on this forum I have read some pretty derogative phrases being used to describe "white males". Do y'all believe that whites are still majority behind racism? I could keep going, but lets start by discussing this first.
