And I won’t need any because the two videos below speak for themselves and show you all you will need to know. In this first one, titled “Racism Unprovoked,” posted on Facebook by AJ+ on Friday, January 1, 2016 – a white man who is said to have initially come out to antagonize some anti-fracking protesters – quickly turned his venom to the African American video-journalist on site to film the event – and let ‘er rip.
The brother caught the whole thing on film.
The man started out by referring to the journalist as a “chimp” and then started making monkey sounds. He even blamed the black man for “taking his tax dollars.” His behavior proved shocking to the Caucasians standing around him; who you could hear saying, “What??” and telling the offending man to, “Get out of here.”
But alas, ignorance is bliss, right? Dude had a surprise waiting to bring him back down to earth in a very humble way after the video hit the airwaves: His employer made sure that we knew, this man is no longer in our employ.
Watch the video directly below, then scroll down to see how two young white girls react to getting a black doll for Christmas.
Racism is a learned behavior. Babies are not born hating anyone. They watch the behavior of those closest to them. The people they trust. And that behavior is then duplicated. So when two little white girls (seen in the video below) receive a Christmas gift from uncle Seth and aunt Cynthia; and their mother prompts them to take it out of the bag, it is the mother’s reaction heard off-camera that is even more disturbing than the child’s obvious dislike of the toy.
“This is from Uncle Seth and Aunt Cynthia. Go ahead, open it,” the woman says off-camera. The younger girl, who appears to be around two, is sitting on the floor and takes the bag, begging to open it in her sweet baby voice. She pulls out two baby dolls—black baby dolls.
The woman says, “Give Rainie (sp?) hers. Give Rainie hers.” Rainie, the older child, is standing and takes the doll. She looks at it with a shyly bemused expression, shows the doll quickly to the camera, and turns away.
Mother: “What’s wrong?”
Mother: “Do you like it?”
Rainie: “Um hm.”
The woman lets out a suppressed laugh, turns the camera to the younger girl, and says, “Do you like it, Regan?” Regan begins to wail and shakes her head no. The woman says, in a high, beseeching voice, “Why? What’s wrong?”. Regan cries escalates and finally, she throws the doll in front of her. There’s laughter from what sounds like a second woman. As the laughter continues, the camera pans to the older daughter who remains silent, gives a little smile, and shrugs.
She knows SOMETHING is wrong.
