Do they have a legitimate complaint???Absolutely yes, but they are going about change the wrong way. We can not roll back the clock of time and change history. Do these people understand that they had ALMOST as big a hand in slavery as the white people did?? Can that be changed or altered?? Hell no, but history can and help us not to make the same mistakes in the future.
What fact is sort of kept under the covers:
Viral image stated on August 22, 2017 in social media feeds: “At the PEAK of slavery in 1860, only 1.4% of Americans owned slaves. What your history books (don’t) tell you is that 3,000 blacks owned a total of 20,000 slaves the same year.”
Who if anyone has held them accountable.
Cold hard fact. I don’t care how hard anyone tries; we can’t ever erase history. That is why it is called history; what happened in the past. If history can not be changed, we should tuck it neatly in bed, pull the blanket over it and allow it to rest for eternity. Let us ALL focus on the future so our kids and grand kids can have a better life. The time has come for all parties concerned to give it up and start pulling in the same direction.
Unfortunately; we have groups of people in this world, if you say it is black, they will say it is white – if you say it is white, they will say it is black. They were born stubborn and ignorant and will never change. Let us all hope; there are more of us than fools like them.
What is the CRT??
Critical race theory
Critical race theory is a framework of analysis and an academic movement of civil-rights scholars and activists who seek to examine the intersection of race and law in the United States and to challenge mainstream American liberal approaches to racial justice. Wikipedia
That may have been what happened yesteryear, but I think there have been significant and sincere efforts to put the past behind us. Does it still need more work?? Yes, but not through intimidation or threats.
For example: What about the Italian. Polish, German, Jewish immigrants and many more immigrants that had a very hard way to go when they arrived in the USA. Without going into too much detail, they all had to assimilate, educate themselves and become part of the system.
It was a long hard process for all the foreign nationalities to achieve their goal, but they stuck to it, got good educations and eventually (to this day not fully), became accepted in society.
Unfortunately; it is people like this rebel-rousing CRT defender who would rather take the tough, violent road.
Fort Worth parents told Fox News that they felt threatened when a parent who defended critical race theory turned to the crowd during a school board meeting and said, “I got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go,” before adding, “locked and loaded,” as officers escorted him out of the room.
1,000 soldiers ready to go!! That is a very bold threat and should not be taken lightly. The authorities should take this fool seriously. Radicals like this are the ones that keep the racial fires lit. They do not want peace. They do not want to start their metaphorical job in the warehouse running a tow motor, they want to start as the CEO. Gott pay your dues folks to climb the ladder.
Criminal Threats – CriminalDefenseLawyer.com
Depending on the state, a criminal threat can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony offense. While felony offenses are more serious than misdemeanors, either of them can result in incarceration, fines, and other penalties. … Anyone convicted of making a criminal threat faces a substantial time in jail or prison.
If the authorities were smart – I said if the authorities are smart, they would lock this fool up and press charges against him. Gotta set an example. It is not so much the threat of this individual, BUTT the other fools he fires up who can be 10 times more dangerous.
The USA better get a handle on EDUCATING all of it’s citizens if they ever want to see any improvement in racism. It is not going to be achieved by all the lips service, threats, violence and SPECIAL committees that blow a lot of unnecessary money and spin their wheels. It has to be through EDUCATION. It has to start at home and continue in their schools.
What makes matters worse; there are too many people making boat loads of money keeping the racial fires burning. They do not want peace and keep The Lady in tears.
