74. I've written on many websites....

I've addressed this matter as well, at how many white people.. the instance they see the words "white people" their attitude would go into neglect, denial, avoidance, contempt and their ears would shut down, and their ability to comprehend what is being said, becomes void. They will miss the entirety of point and factors being discussed, and ignore the principles being addressed, and become fixated on the words "white people".

Yet, as the OP said, many will immediately turn and make a statement using the worlds "black people", and never become aware of themselves doing so, still, they will immediately expect black people to only focus on the points and factors they are addressing. Yet, they can't do the same when they see the words "white people" referenced in discussing points and factors.

It was evident over many centuries and many decades, and was very vividly true during the Era of Dr. King's Speeches, 'they simply would go into neglect, denial, avoidance, contempt and their ears would shut down, and their ability to comprehend what is being said, becomes void.

The history of "white people" thinking they are some Model for Mankind, has made many blind, unaware and obstinate to gain introspect in and of themselves and their manner of dealing with non white people. We see it still today, with the "insensitivity" in things they say, and when they are called on it... some go into defense mode, and if it will cause them public ridicule, they issue a insincere apology, for the sake of their public image or fear of loss of some aspect of white privilege.

President Lyndon B. Johnson once said,
"If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

As the OP said, on DU, where people claim to join because they support equality, fair and equitable standards for all, it is evident some hold to that claim, "unless" it will bring them to give up the want of white privilege. Some still exemplify the character traits as if they are superior to non whites, and they have a million+ ways of seeking to convey that, even when they do so unconsciously as if its second nature. As this has been the historical cultural grooming in ways of thinking and ways of seeing themselves in relation to others who are not white.


The impacts of hundreds of years of slavery and Jim Crow, did not miss any groups of white people, even newly arriving white immigrants adopted the "ideological grooming of Jim Crow" and some brought a bias with them as a family unity/or individual when they arrived in America.

As Einstein said... “There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States,” said the renowned physicist, using the common term in the day. “That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. I do not intend to be quiet about it.”


We can look at the Right Wing White Racist Groups... They demonstrate a nature of madness that raged for centuries in America and they are void of the capability to learn and see, they and their mentality is what promotes and create the vile in America and Among people. The attitude they express toward women and minorities, is the exact same attitude that led this nation to become obsessed with "outsourcing". It was a means to ensure that women and minorities would not have avenues to gain economic parity with white men. His history saw women as his possession and he held a desire to keep her dependent on him, and he saw black people as being a property he could control and remand to being dependent on him, and these are the vile mentality perspective he has long been groomed to pursue as a backing for his delusion of being superior and trying to protect his 'privilege to have first and last choice in every matter and thing.

We see it with voter suppression, we see it within what is promoted as to political policies by right wing white groups. Anything they think will benefit women and minorities, they will destroy, including much that even damages themselves to achieve the denial of benefits that would be available to women and minorities.
"They" cry about "my tax dollars"... when they are blind to the fact, their historical upkeep and environment were built by 100% tax on minorities and by rationing out to women (as his possession) only enough to keep her fit and healthy for his pleasure. During Segregation, black people paid taxes as did women, but "they" detested any tax monies to be spent to improve minority communities, but quickly supported any level of tax expenditure within and for "their" communities.

It's not any different than the Confederacy Mentality... where everything was to support the white people's Antebellum ideals; as they saw minorities as nothing more than property, and they saw women as ornamental, for his pleasure and his public image and to provide him offspring's, and when she no longer had the youthful appearance, he had not a second thought about taking a mistress, he saw it as his privilege, while calling himself moral and honorable and virtuous; of which non of such applied to him.
The poor whites were and are considered as nothing more than "service class technicians"... used often to ensure the sowing of racial animosity in the public circle. In the chaos, as was within the Confederacy Principles, when there's chaos, the wealthy reap greater profits and widened the gap between the rich and the poor.

MLK said it all within he Speech at Selma: http://deimos3.apple.com/WebObjects/Core.woa/FeedEnclosure/americanpublicmedia.org.1749274648.01749274655.1867056927/enclosure.pdf

If the Average Poor and Working Poor White People had held the capacity to listen and actually hear and understand what he was saying, they may have done better in learning how to see themselves and how they were being manipulated by the systems of the wealthy who used them as pawns, the same as we see today, the Trump Administration and Republican Congress and the White Evangelicals, using the average working poor and struggling poor whites, still to this very day.
It has taken the force of law and the fear of consequence of law that has brought many "white people" to act civil in general societies public arena, but for many, the transition of thought and feeling in the heart has not much changed. As we see the desperation by many means to try and hang on to the fiction of white superiority and the fear of not having the inequality benefit of white privilege diminished.

We can watch TV Commercials, and the incessant depiction of "predominantly white people" promoted as if they expect to be an image and character as if they expect such to be the social standard, when the products being advertised is often purchased and used by "all people". We watch white people claim depression and go into despair if they can't afford to live the "commercialized imagery", and "they don't have the monetary means to live by such imagery standards, until within today's society of white people, we see more and more white people killing their families and themselves, when their economic means does not afford them the means to live these commercial imagery depictions. We seem them sanitize crime in their community, because the criminal is white and appears as some promoted commercial imagery depiction, and then they call it an "anomaly" as its quickly squashed from the media. We see mass murderers quickly be claimed to have a "mental issue" or "off their med's"... rather than to see them as evil cold blooded killers. This is quickly followed, by claiming the killer be it "he/she was always such a nice person".
Unaware they make means of acceptance and inspire promotion of more of the same to escalate in their environments. We see now, the incessant string of teachers sexing up their students, clergy sexing up the youth and adults sexing up kids, as that old historical mentality of being groomed to think that being white, nothing is to be denied to them. They act shocked and stunned, when they are busted.

There is much in need of introspection.... by white people; if this nation is to achieve a demeanor of equality.

White people are a mixed lot of Various European cultural/ethnic groups, of which many can't stand each other, but they will unify as being "white" in the stand to think themselves superior and to want first and only choice as in being privileged to do so, and in being superior to non white ethnic people.
