I'm not interested in changing how a racist person feels

since, like I just said I can't make them change their views

I do want to make sure laws are in place that protect my rights and that they are enforced

the only minds I care about possibly changing are the minds of new blacks


Heart

They don't have to have a positive view of me.  I don't care to be honest what white people think or feel.  But they are NOT going to treat me bad and hold me down.  I just want black people to realize that that is what's going on, even if you don't know that the boot in YOUR particular neck.

i think there's more than one approach ... separatism vs a melting pot... guess that's a decision we need to make

Many maligned minority groups successfully rebranded 

The laws and processes and institutions can also be changed by concerted targeted involvement, gaining authority, representation, pressure, shame etc

That's why I feel it's important to know where and how racism manifests itself so it can be dismantled

This makes me think of that black food activist with 5 kids by 4 fathers.

On the one hand, she's socially conscious and fighting against the racism that creates food deserts and unequal access to healthy food. On the other hand, she's consistently making choices that cripple her and her children in a racist society.

I would say their has to be a balance between awareness of what's out there and focusing on what's personal to us...but in some ways I think the balance should heavily favor the choices people have to make in their everyday lives to be fed, clothed, sheltered, etc.

Right poverty is not specific to black people

And the racism that they deny, adversely, purposefully affects one's ability to get out of poverty, it's by design

There is no way that they are not linked.

these were my thoughts as well.

I don't have too much to add because I feel a lot of you have summarized my thoughts pretty well.  This was a good thread, I enjoyed reading the anecdotes/opinions.

even the Chinese or Japanese in America

There was a time when they were considered menial, yellow bellied, addressed only by slurs, interred, segregated 

Now they're know for being rich and excellent in math.. yes there are lingering stereotypes but quite as negative

More recently, using the media as it is today the LGBT community

We can definitely rebrand

my last post somewhat contradicts my stance in yesterday's section 8 thread, i'll admit. however, while section 8 is a far cry from a fancy pair of hermes boots (more like a pair of flimsy jesus mocassins with holes in the sole lol), it is a somewhat of a leg up over poor people who don't have the same "luxury". this is where personal responsibility comes into play. use that leg up to do better. kinda off topic...
