Without making it about the English teacher I pull out the dictionary and show the kids that it is emotions not sound logic.


P.S. this same teacher tells kids that it is transphobic and bigoted to not date transgendered people. The kids mock her for that behind her back, but many buy into the only whites can be racist BS.


Typical garbage SJW English "teacher." Anonymously record her saying this tripe and make her internet famous.

I hear variants of this a lot, actually. Sometimes it's from parents to children, or an educator to a student. The idea of White Privilege is often spoken of as a insurmountable challenge.
Have you ever heard of Automatic Negative Thoughts (ANTs)? Amenclinics.com describes them in these categories:
FORTUNE TELLING
This is the ANT of almost anyone who has a panic disorder. They are masterful at predicting the worst, even though they don’t have any evidence.

MIND READING
Where you arbitrarily believe that you know what someone else is thinking, even though they didn’t tell you. Many people do this, and more often than not it gets them into trouble. It’s a major reason why people have trouble in relationships.

GUILT BEATINGS
Thinking with words like should, must, ought and have to. The words we use to talk to ourselves are very important. Guilt is not a very good motivator for change. Telling yourself “I should go see my grandmother” rather than “I want to spend time with my grandmother” only serves to make you feel negative.

BLAME
Whenever you blame someone else for the problems in your life, you are a victim and you can’t do anything to change it. Many of us play the blame game, but it rarely helps us. Stay away from blaming thoughts and take personal responsibility for changing the problems you have.

LABELING
Calling yourself or someone else a derogatory name. This diminishes your ability to see situations clearly and labels are very harmful.

Telling someone with darker skin that they may not succeed because of their skin color will likely lead them to be subject to fortune telling, mind reading, and blame ANTs. Negative thoughts actually release chemicals in the body that make you physically feel poorly. On the flip side, positive thoughts release chemicals that help the body and mind.
Discussions of race relations are important for every parent to have with their child. There are racists out there. If there is anything a person could possibly discriminate against another over, someone is going to use that excuse. Race is an easy target. But the discussion can be framed in such a way as to empower the child to strive for success.

Given which thread you chose to pose this question in, I'm going to go a step further.
I was not there and don't know what else your coworker said, or how he made his initial statement, but based on how you presented it, I don't think what he said should be classified as racist. Not because black people can't be racist, of course they can. Rather, partially because it has been true in the past. I mean, right after the Civil War, there were about a dozen black U.S. Congressmen from the Confederate states, but most died penniless in obscurity because the Klu Klux Klan took over. Partially because studies have shown that blacks, black men especially, have more trouble getting a job or buying a car than other groups. That holds true regardless of qualifications, criminal background, or income.
That said, telling his kids the "no matter what" portion is unnecessarily fatalistic and discouraging, since blacks have succeeded in this country. Barack Obama was president. Condoleezza Rice was Secretary of State.

Thoughts?

Anyone can be racist. Whoever said "no" is an idiot.

Yes. Anyone can be. Sadly my daughter experienced racism at 7 by a classmate. I will never forget that day and that conversation.

Of course black people can be racist. The problem is that black academics, white liberals and sjws say blacks can't be racist because they don't control any institutions.

My girlfriend is such. But she does not hate white people, she believes in white privlidge, and she resents white success. Yes I can agree that due to slavery and Jim Crow blacks in America were not able to achieve the same status as white people which is a wrong. But being resentful to white people 24-7 and worrying about white supremacy will give me a headache. What you are talking about is the Pro-black ideology. Pro-black ideology has become a big thing since Donald Trump has become President of the United States. As for me I'm a 1st generation American, and I have no historical ties here in this land, half of me is the white man and the other half of me is the black man. Yes I can say white supremacy exist and to some extent white privilege, but I can not worry about white supremacy and white privilege all the time. Black academics, and Social Justice Activist tend to put blame on white Supremacy and white privilege most of the time when its something that does not go their way. If black academics and SJW's want to see white supremacy, take a trip to South Africa, or Mexico where the white population is a minority, but control much of the wealth and institutions.

As for your friend doing a good thing? We don't know. As for me I can not put black first, or white first. I have to put humanity first. Putting black first is no different than white people who put white folks first. I understand your friend who wants to put black first, and he has his right to instill that in his children.
