How to end racism 

 

Just read an interesting article about the far-left dems’ obsession with race. It seems that they like to call anyone who disagrees with them racist. So ridiculous.  

 

Does anyone want to end racism? One way to do that is to “stop talking about it” according to the famous black actor, Morgan Freeman.  The followings are the remarks in an interview with Mike Wallace of CBS’ 60 MINUTES:

 

MIKE WALLACE: Black History Month, you find?

MORGAN FREEMAN, ACTOR: Ridiculous.

WALLACE: Why?

FREEMAN: You`re going to relegate my history to a month?

WALLACE: oh, Come on.

FREEMAN: What do you do with yours? Which month is White History Month? Come on, tell me.

WALLACE: I'm Jewish.

FREEMAN: OK. Which month is Jewish History Month?

WALLACE: There isn`t one.

FREEMAN: Why not? Do you want one?

WALLACE: No, no.

FREEMAN: I don`t either. I don`t want a Black History Month. Black history is American history.

WALLACE: How are we going to get rid of racism until...?

FREEMAN: Stop talking about it. I'm going to stop calling you a white man. And I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman. You`re not going to say, "Well, I know this white guy named Mike Wallace.  You know what I'm saying?”

Wallace:  Mm-hmm.

Freeman: Jewish guy. I have a lot of – some of my best friends are Jewish. Okay?

 

In an another interview with Don Lemon on CNN, when asked by Lemon whether race is a factor in wealth distribution in the United States, Freman said, “Today? No. You and I. We’re proof.”

“Why would race have anything to do with it?” said Freeman. “Put your mind to what you want to do and go for that. It’s kind of like religion to me. It’s a good excuse for not getting there.”

 

I totally agree with Freeman that these days more and more people are using race as an excuse for their own problems.

BeagleDog 回复 悄悄话 完全赞同Freeman的观点。只有“那些失败者,自卑者”,才拿肤色说事。我一直都觉得,只有时间,和淡忘,才能缓解种族分裂。过去总说,真理不辩不明。可是种族之间,真的不是越辩越明。越是争论,就越撕裂。我是从文革打派仗,体会到,有些非常尖锐的矛盾,是不能用摆事实讲道理来解决的。只有淡忘。“Stop taking it”。
xiaoxitian 回复 悄悄话 回复 'JessAB' 的评论 : +100.“squad”如果不打种族牌,还有谁关注她们。在民主党内squad和Pelosi争抢权力,说Pelosi 是白人之上。看谁挡了她们的道谁就是种族歧视,种族主义。如果这些政客掌权,美国真是要溃败了。
这像中国搞阶级斗争,指不同意见者为阶级敌人。
JessAB 回复 悄悄话 回复 'beaglegirl' 的评论 :

你说的对.

看看以下那极左’squad’ Ayanna Pressley的发言才是骨子里赤裸裸的的racist:
Ayanna Pressley saying, “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.”

beaglegirl 回复 悄悄话 就是这么回事。弱化种族,强化法律,价值,贡献,才是真正的平等。
JessAB 回复 悄悄话 回复 'bl' 的评论 :

到底什么是种族歧视呢? 一般是指被不公平对待仅仅因为肤色, 族裔. 若是因为自身的行为能力问题, 被人区别对待, 不应该属于被种族歧视.
JessAB 回复 悄悄话 回复 '无法弄' 的评论 :

可以理解每个人的处境和经历不一样, 对”种族歧视”的感受也可能不同. 谢谢分享.
bl 回复 悄悄话 差别存在一天,歧视就存在一天,包括这个世界的一切。
无法弄 回复 悄悄话 很难的,我还说不清。我儿子一直在英国学校,结果发现他们学校的孩子洋人喜欢和洋人做朋友,亚洲人和亚洲人结伴,混血和混血是朋友,洋孩子不喜欢和亚洲人做朋友。我儿子是欧亚混血,他说他们学校的洋孩子有种族歧视。这个在低年级老师是管的,到了高年级,孩子心里明白了,改变不了,老师也不再参与了。我觉得这里面挺复杂的,没那么容易解决,很多是文化问题。洋孩子长大了,把这种经历给下一代,这种情愫就这么传下去了。我对我儿子说:你只有自己在各个方面杰出,让他们无法歧视你。说起来容易,做起来难啊。

Thank you for your comments. I think right now the dems are not only inciting the race war but also the class war. It is the Republican party/Trump who promote race and color blindness, and want people of different backgrounds to be fully inclusive.

Quotes from Steve Bannon: “Nationalism, then, is the mechanism through which Judeo-Christian traditions and values become part of society. That’s because nationalism is fully inclusive, in the sense that it invites people of different backgrounds to unite under a common “American” sense of self. It dissolves minority identities—leading to the emphasis on “colorblindness” of “all lives matter” and opposition to affirmative action.”
林外芭蕉 回复 悄悄话 Freeman can say that. We can't, 'cause we ain't black.

美国是不可能、也不会去消除种族话题的,为什么呢?What else can replace it? 阶级论是不能碰的,因为那更危险,更会触动上层阶级的利益。打种族牌更安全一些,因为各个阶层、各个阶级都包括。把社会问题引向种族主义,可以模糊贫富差距的根本原因,又可以避免潜在的共产主义革命的影响。所以种族主义是最安全的,各位就别和统治阶级一起搅合了。

JessAB 回复 悄悄话 回复 '华府采菊人' 的评论 :

你说的是有那么回事. 有什么具体的例子吗?
华府采菊人 回复 悄悄话 有些事是可说不可做的, 而另外有些事则反过来是可做不可说的。
JessAB 回复 悄悄话 回复 'SwissArmy' 的评论 :

是啊, 社会之复杂, 什么样的人都有. 所能做的是为自身和美国利益以及美囯有好的未来去作努力.
SwissArmy 回复 悄悄话 很不幸地,我认为这是人性的一部分,可预见的未来中无法消除;而且人性中另一个部分是,总有人会为自己的失败找借口,而找借口怪罪别人,比自己努力奋斗要容易的多。
