Thanks for the opportunity to respond to your excellent articles. As a recovering racist I notice racism is too often taken for granted by most white people. I want to be kind to white people yet I notice I am, at times, ashamed to be white. I continue to notice white racism remains predominant in our society. Whites rarely talk to other whites about racism. White society has been encouraged by the likes of Hume and Kant to disrespect people of color. Whites often grow up not knowing why they think they are better than people of color, but from my experience, that seems to be the case with many white people. Better stated, it is not that whites think whites are better, but rather, whites have semi-consciously been taught that people of color are not quite as good as whites. As I approach age 81, I continue to notice that whites need to talk to other whites about the injustices whites have done to people of color, particularly African-Americans. White on white talk helps increase awareness of the pitfalls of continued racism. As whites have inherited many assets over the years, whites could now “profitably” realize that we also inherit liabilities. As a result of inheriting liabilities, we may focus on reimbursement for the racial injustice. Whites don’t often notice that we have never given 40 acres and a mule –– with interest –– to offspring of slaves.

Have you "926CPP" ever explored the web-site of Life Dynamics Incorporated, watched the DVD Maafa 21 and tried investigating whether or not there is a link between racism and abortion!?
