I'll start with this quote so it helps frame where I'm coming from. Now looking at this my mind says, this is supremest racist talk. Now another part of my experience as a black person says something completely different. It finds some truth in the statement above. My question is what makes us different from "white" racists who believe and express that outwardly and covertly that they are held in higher regard to others around them because of what they've achieved as a race. If I use the argument that some species are given natural gifts that are different / better than other species, then I can say well it's a natural occurrence so I'm just going with nature / what nature says. I've checked around and seen forums that are similar to this, just the polar opposite, where "whites" feel as if we are "vastly" inferior to them. Again I'll ask, what makes us as "melanated" people different from other racists? I'm only asking this so I can help make sense out of the conflict in my mind, and I'd appreciated any input pro or con, I'm not at all trying to be divisive. Just so I'm clear, I spent a lot of time around a "white" and "melanated" kids when I was growing up. We were all middle / lower class. Through my teen years I spent more time in predominately "white" places, since that was the majority where I lived. As I started to get out and experience life, I amassed wealth, but then magically it was stripped from behind me by the very "jewish" business accountants I was paying to maintain my wealth. Needless to say it heavily affected my viewpoint on the opposite race. So presently, I do feel melanated people have more of a heart, are prone to fairness versus unfairness. Of course I look at every person individually, but those that I lump into a class have to make uphill climbs for trust, but that's how I work now. Just so we're clear. I even went as far to say to someone yesterday who disrespected me, "You know nothing about me, and how I'm superior to you in nature. The sun you worship as your god destroys you because you don't possess enough melanin to allow you to stay out in it. When you understand that then you'll see why I'm superior." I just shared that because it gets tiresome to get disrespected by "whites" covertly and sometimes overtly. So I've taken a stance to speak my mind about how I feel on the inside about myself and what I've studied. In case the bible is brought up, I've read it and studied it a lot (prophecy study / precept upon precept / etc . . .) and the bible itself pushed me toward a more "black people" centered frame of mind. I know this was a long post, but there's a lot going on in regards to this question. Thanks.
