Every white person is considered privileged so whenever there is a black fatality at the hands of white racists in some form of power/authority ALL white people must apologise for enabling slavery.

To the people suffering - Sorry!

Haha, either you're joking or you'd be one of those white people on their knees and begging blacks for forgiveness. It's such a fucking joke. I've never believed in inheretance of the actions of your ancestors. I never won a medal killing Japs in New Guinea, my grandfather did, I don't take the credit. If one of my ancestors did something bad to Aborigines then that's none of my doing. I've never done anything to a racial minority, helped an Aboriginal I lived with get a job once. He owned an investment property in Darwin too. I don't own any land, I rent from a landlord, so much for their theory when I walk in certain parts of Sydney - "WHITE CUNT, YOU STOLE OUR LAND!"

Anyway Cops kill people sometimes. Especially since in America 200 cops a year get blown away, cops are aggressive there. When a white chick from Australia was shot in the face by a cop after she called them and she went out to their car to help, after an underprivileged white teen was shot in the back fleeing unarmed from cops, there were no protests. After every under/un reported shooting of white people by US cops no one gave a shit. Actually 50% of people cops kill in America each year (out of about 400 people total) are white. I know whites are a bigger part of the population than that in some areas, but to be honest, black Americans on average commit more crimes. That's just reality, not racism. Reality is also that Nigerian American migrants are the wealthiest and most prosporous ethnic group in America, easily beating whites. You have to look at all aspects if you want to see reality, not just your blinkered view.

I believe in individuals anyway. Every individual matters. Everyones got challenges in their life, racism, discrimination can happen to anybody, your health and family background can be good or bad, no matter what race you are. You have to overcome. We all are in this together. This is my message to minorities: Don't be a victim of your race because someone on twitter told you to be, I know it's the easy way out, I once played the victim in Japan, but I changed and stopped thinking everything was about me and my race, sometimes it's just fucking life man, shit happens to all sorts of people for all sorts of reasons. Rise above.

I wasn’t joking - if you’re white then you’re privileged even if you’re poor and white you are more privileged because your life isn’t impacted today by slavery whereas all black people are. As white people we are ignorant or turn a blind eye to the ongoing racism.

MLI you are not an Aborigine, if you were you might understand better.

Yeah, this was in South Minneapolis as well. There were definitely protests after it, but obviously not on the scale of the GF protests. And while there was certainly overlap among the protesters that previously turned out to protest some of the recent high profile police shootings of black men by police in the city, there was a decent contingent of "first timers" that hadn't taken to the streets over the previous police shootings. This further upset some of the black community (community as a whole too I guess) since these people only started giving a fuck about these killings once a white woman was killed.

Fast forward to judgement day, this black police officer (born in Somalia) was found guilty of shooting this white woman from Australia, becoming the first police officer in the state to be convicted of murder of any degree. The verdict reaffirmed what the black community here already knew; that there is a different set of rules/laws for white people and another set for black people.

I know you it's difficult to compare this trial with two high profile trials where white police officers shot and killed black men the previous couple years, but just imagine it through the lens of a person of color. Seeing the white police officers go free after while the black police officer is convicted murder when it happens to be a white woman.

Source? 5 mins of Googling this leads to this:

Nigerian Americans are number 66 on the list.

Genuinely interested where you get your information from MLI. You can't just be making stuff up, right?

While this maybe true, you’re missing another point.
Any demographic when forced into poverty will commit more crime.

See any deprived white area of any major UK city and the crime will be high. That’s just an economic fact and nothing to do with race.

The thing is, black Americans are more likely to be exposed to poverty and that’s through systemic racism.

So what you’re doing Mil is just reinforcing stereotypes. Lazy racism in other words.

You've just shared an article with 7 words in the title alone - this is too much reading for MLI. You will need to distill the entire thing down to 2 words.

It's a bit annoying but can't really understand being that pissed off about it?

I'd take overeager, naive sharing and trying to do better over people posting Lee Rigby and begging the army descend into the streets…

shit i hope that old guy is ok … that kind of fall can easily kill or put someone in a coma

i have a similar kneejerk reaction in the back of my mind that people are too eager to copy and paste links or share other people's "lists of resources" on social media than they are to actually read something, or have a difficult conversation with someone they know.

but it's not that bad is it - all fairly well-intentioned?

Great post mate and well articulated, unfortunately it will fall on deaf ears as mil wont even try and understand your very valid points, he will just pretend you are a weak pussy and that he is some alpha warrior.

Edit: Also the figures for crimes commited by black/white people wont be accurate in any event as reported crimes are more likely to be investigated if the accused is a person of colour and black people are much more likely to be prosecuted. The system is inherently racist, the figures wont be accurate.

You can see he immediately starts bleeding from his ears after the fall and there is a pool of blood on the floor. Why anyone would think its acceptable to push an old man to the ground like that while he is posing no threat is beyond me.
