This will likely ruffle some feathers but here goes.
I’m an inquisitive person seeking knowledge and I’ve looked far and wide for what I seek. I have asked others about this and I have been unfriended on Facebook by friends I’ve had for over 30 years for having the gall to ask such a question. No one, not one person, has been able to properly answer my question. Now I’m going to ask the question here (I posted the exact same question on Facebook), publicly, for the entire world to see in an effort to get some kind of definitive answer instead of non fact based “I won’t ever not believe…” gut emotional reactions.
Again; this post is PUBLIC for the entire world to read, take that into consideration when replying. You have been warned.
Here’s the question. Please use critical thinking and facts not your gut emotions to answer the question.
If you are one of the people that claims that systemic anti-black racism exists in the United States please do me a favor and provide evidence other than superficial innuendo and accusations to prove that systemic anti-black racism actually exists. If you are not one of the ones that claim systemic racism exists, please don’t comment I’m truly not looking for speculation or contradictory information.
Here is the kind of evidence/proof/etc that I’m looking for.
1. To prove that systemic racism exists there must first be evidence to show that the racism they claim exists actually exists. Accusations and innuendo are not proof of racism. Facts, nothing but the facts will do.
2. If you can prove that the racism you claim exists in number one then you must provide evidence that the racism has a verifiable pattern showing that it’s systemic. Accusations and innuendo are not proof of systemic racism. Facts, nothing but the facts will do.
Here is your chance to publicly support your opinion. If you don’t want to do it publicly then please send me a personal message. It’s the individual responsibility of the individuals making the claim to support the claim, it’s not the responsibility of others to prove the claim is false.
BE RESPECTFUL OF OTHERS OPINIONS!
If you immediately jump on the ad hominem bandwagon and attack me for asking the question or anyone else for their opinion your reply will be deleted, if you repeat posting ad hominems you will be blocked regardless of who you are. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
Claims that this blog post is gaslighting will be considered ad hominems.
WARNING: I will be saving offline absolutely every post made by anyone regardless of the content of the post. Do not write anything that you wouldn’t want publicly repeated at a later date.
Let the civil and informative discussion begin.
