Curing the giant “racial divide” is very simple. You will be literally shocked at how simple the solution is.
We all know by now how very important racial equality is to justice (OR ELSE).
Racial Equality is not considered optional these days is it?
Ironically, the cure for the “great divide” between the races in America is…(drumroll please)…
Racial Equality. Specifically:
Are you sitting down?
Okay, so since racial equality solves literally everything else it should be no surprise that basic racial equality solves the racial divide in the following way:
By applying racial equality, in the racially equal assignment, of racially equal ancestral blame.
Some people’s ancestors bought and owned slaves. Other people’s ancestors captured, imprisoned and the sold slaves.
Verily, verily I say unto you:
If thou shalt do the tango, that shalt taketh two.
I WISH MY ANCESTORS WERE PERFECT
Personally, I myself used to wish that America could have been the first civilization in human history to not have any slavery in its past. Then again I used to wish that everyone were as perfect as Jesus.
Then I turned 12.
While REAL Americans (including those who happen to be black) have good sense, there are a relatively smaller but extremely loud portion of black folks who feel that they’ve been wronged these days (they are the ones who prefer shouting and violent crime over working or praying).
Many white Liberals (and a percentage of really gullible black folks too) feel that all whites should feel tremendous guilt over the actions of their white ancestors. Fortunately the white liberals come bearing gifts of solution, which of course involves giving all of your money and possessions to white liberals and the racially diverse group of people they pretend to like (which would instantly make everything perfect because that’s how it works when you pay a ransom).
THE NEW NORMAL RETROACTIVELY APPLIED
Unfortunately the ancestors of whites were not psychic and as such they failed miserably to preemptively live by the “New Normal”. Racism and White Supremacy surely are the only things which could explain how they failed to anticipate today’s social norms multiple centuries in advance. Such egregious insensitivity is a sure sign that White Supremacy is looming large.
Then again, it could be that they failed to conform to the terms of the “New Normal” because they were so busy recklessly living by the terms of the “Old Normal”, which at the time was the only thing that seemed normal.
LET’S DO LIKE THE LEFT AND ADDRESS RACISM AT THE ROOT
If I were to do my best Leftist SJW impression, I would most likely frantically scream that everything is white people’s fault because the root of slavery is the white slave owners of centuries past.
But, white slave owners are not the root of slavery in America. They’re more like branches than roots.
As far as the ROOT of blame for slavery in America:
That would be on those who SOLD slaves. Most of whom were African.
Am I saying that this makes slavery a GOOD thing?
Well, that depends on who you ask:
If you were to ask the African prisoners of war who avoided brutal execution only because they had value in the slave trade, then I’d not be surprised if they were to say that given their particularly undesirable circumstances at the time, they’d actually prefer going to America over being executed on the spot or remaining a prisoner/laborer where it is literally, “Africa Hot”.
I’m the type of person who “would rather die on my feet than live on my knees”, but I definitely would have chosen the America option, if only because at least then I’d have a chance of escaping in the future.
IF YOUR ANCESTORS WERE EXECUTED YOU WOULDN’T EXIST
Okay so this is an especially sensitive portion of any historical discussion, so let’s just go with the facts. Actually one fact is plenty and then we’ll call it good for now.
The one fact I’ll choose goes as follows:
If your ancestors were executed you wouldn’t exist.
LET ALL ANCENSTORS RECEIVE RACIALLY EQUAL BLAME
Let the virtuous principles of racial equality be applied to healing for a great big massive change, and then just watch in awe and wonder as the racial divide magically disappears.
