America was built upon the destruction of a people. The Africans kidnapped and brought to the shores of this country (those that survived the voyage and weren’t thrown into the sea) were subjected to the most horrific treatment of any people on this planet. The reason it was the worst is because of how long it occurred. We still can’t fully interpret and/or process the treatment of our ancestors and the effects of hundreds of years of displacement and inhuman designation.
Now that has been said, Newswise reported a new study that states that “whites believe that they have replaced blacks as the primary victims of racial discrimination in contemporary America.” The study was conducted by researchers at Tufts University’s School of Arts and Sciences and Harvard Business School. The authors believed that America would’ve achieved better racial discord after electing President Obama.
Their study is equivalent to surveyers standing in the streets of New York city asking every African American and white person that walks by if they believe they are more discriminated against than the other. Pure science! Are you kidding? Do you really need to stand behind what is supposed to be the prestige of Harvard and Tufts University to try and get America, to once again, pacify the post trauma of white hate. In other words, they expect that the world is treating them poorly because they have treated others with hatred.
Who is their control group? Where exactly did they survey the 208 blacks and 209 whites in the nation? Do you think any of the researchers made a trip to the ‘hood? Even the fact that the white people were given one more surveyor, thus opinion, than black people involved is unfair reasoning. Sorry Harvard! Sorry Tufts! Your survey does not fly here! When you are subjected to Jim Crow and have to have your Voting Rights Act signed every few years come back to the table. We might entertain this foolishness. But those who need to see this mess for themselves can view it here.
