Your people oppressed my people (idea)
Return to Your people oppressed my people (idea)
Even if it wasn't about the [opression] of some particular group of people, the simple ideas of "[your people]" and "[my people]" being yours or mine because of [skin color]--that is [racism].
[BET] is racism.
Am I the only person who thinks that I'm not personally responsible for the actions of every other individual in history that had the same skin color as me? What if my parents have black people as supervisors in their jobs? What if my grandparents participated with [Martin Luther King, Jr.] in the [March on Washington]? What if my great-grandparents were hanged as [nigger-lover]s because they refused to go along with their "people" in oppression of others? At the risk of sounding [self-righteous] (or worse, [politically correct]), I don't think myself or anyone in my immediate ancestry has ever taken action to [oppress] a single individual, much less a "people." [every thought and every act of racial prejudice is harmful.]
"My People"--at least, the people that are similar in appearance to me--are not an [institution], they're not a [voting bloc] or "[the man]." They don't act as one, they act as individuals. If you want to accuse a particular group of people for oppressing others, look in your history books, and figure out who had slaves, and if they're still around, accuse them of the misdeeds they have done (misdeeds to their actual [victims], of course, not the "people" who want to get a piece of the [righteous indignation] that comes from sharing a skin color with some individual or group of individuals who were oppressed several generations ago.)
