Second opinion on nigger dating

We are responsible for the communities we build around us, for the people we let in and those we keep out. I’m not a court of law looking for the intent behind an incident, asking whether George Zimmerman was hunted or hunting. A co-worker genuinely compliments me by saying he would never call me a nigger because I work hard, the impact is white supremacy.

I say that I don’t talk to white people because White America’s collective mindset is hostile toward people who look like me. A friend kindly invites me to watch a movie where the people of color are non-existent or plucky sidekicks, the impact is white supremacy.

Then, as an adult, I’d seemed to have hit a groove where my curiosity had taken the wheel and I was back to my general acceptance of whoever happened across my path. George Pataki, the one thing you said through this entire bigoted diatribe is ‘maybe that doesn’t look like a bomb — but it doesn’t look like a clock.’ Glossing over the obvious constitutional reality that America doesn’t usually arrest children for creating items that don’t look like clocks — and your curious animosity for non-clockmakers — I have to say that you came the closest to doing your job well. And all you did tonight was validate that contention. America’s culture has been blowing shit up for the last 30 years.

The woman I was with, much more educated about the subject than I, offered informed viewpoints, helping to add a dimension to the work which I, nevertheless, never fully comprehended nor enjoyed.“During the height of the feminist movement, some women moved to enclaves where they started new lives completely separate from men, even beginning relationships with women though they wouldn’t identify as gay.” I wish I had been alert enough that night to ask my date for clarity.

Rather, I instead wondered if I could ever hate women enough to start dating men because I didn’t want to be around them anymore.

Now I just feel that White America is misguided, though still reductive, hurtful, and even deadly. And the consequential fallout of uncertainty can be disorienting. Though, in truth, David Lemieux could instead be a Ku Klux Klan member in good standing.

But it is a necessary, though potentially dangerous, pursuit, to consider if White America is only harmful to me because I treat it as something that harms me. Listening to Maher’s panel of white men — Maher, Mark Cuban, George Pataki, and Chris Matthews — explain the prudence of arresting 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed — because a teacher thought his science project might have been a bomb — was like watching a doctor tell a child, “You know, if you had only just killed yourself first, you wouldn’t be dealing with this pesky brain cancer.”Hate to interrupt, Mark. Could the defensiveness have come from your being the kind of a person who discusses the particulars of private phone calls with children on national television? The kid, Ahmed, took the clock, put it in the first class. Being told that your perception is askew does little more than highlight the fallibility of your humanity. Such a membership, in conjunction with his pale skin and flowing hair, nevertheless does not discount his blackness — which might inspire one to ponder what being black in America actually means.

Presently, I don’t think of hate as the chief catalyst behind women separating themselves from men.
