This "white" person revealed the truth about how she viewed the "non-white" speaker (General Yahanna) whom I was told (by "white" person) took pleasure in being discourteous towards "white" people as they walked past him in this video. I did not care whether he was or he was not discourteous. What he said and did was what he said and did. He has the Victim's Guaranteed Qualifications (VGQ) to resist Racism (White Supremacy) they way that he thinks that he should resist it. I do not control him.
Would he have done what he said and did if there where not a system of Racism that victimized him?
It does appear to me that being courteous is more constructive towards having a real dialog about and towards solving the "race" issue. But, that's me, I have VGQ too.
The problem (at least from what I have observed so far) is that when I speak with a "white" person about Racism (White Supremacy), act as though it doesn't exist.
Here is a situation where one "white" person reveals the truth about Racism (White Supremacy), in anger, but, to me it was better than acting as though it didn't exist. Her words revealed the truth about how General Yahanna is functioning and will continue to function in a system of Racism (White Supremacy).
TRANSLATION: Look here. "black" folks collectively just recently (what? 40+ years ago? in comparison to "white" folks who've been practicing Racism for centuries? ) got a little bit of freedom to be able to say what you are saying and not be killed for it, so what you are saying doesn't mean shit.
TRANSLATION: what you are saying and doing right now, will never compare to what the smart and powerful "white" man has done. It will not ever compare to what he is still doing.
TRANSLATION: You are in a inferior position and will remain in that position no matter what you say and/or do.
TRANSLATION: You will never have that superior position. It is reserved for smart and powerful "white" people.
TRANSLATION: All of the smart and powerful "white" people who have the will and the ability to keep you in that inferior position are going to.
If more "white" people were as honest as she was and if more "non-white" people paid attention to these kind of words, we could be closer to eliminating Racism. Why? because today it thrives from the belief that it no longer has any power to affect us anymore. I mean today Racism (White Supremacy) is so refined and sophisticated that you would not ever catch "the upper class white man" slippin' like she did. More "non-white" people need to understand that our inferior position in this system has not yet changed and it ain't going to until effective numbers of us start thinking, speaking, and acting in a manner that will. At least that is the theory of it. If we get to that point and it doesn't work then we still have a huge problem to solve. Let's try though.
Let me add that, I don't think that she would have said her true belief about him, if she were not angry. She cracked under pressure. The more sophisticated Racist suspect (the kind that she was comparing him to) wouldn't have walked on the same sidewalk as the general, let alone acknowledged that he were there.
