But the problem is that ignoring one of the largest chunks of their personal identity is not going to help you understand them as people, individuals, or a whole. That may be good ideally, but for now you're just crippling your own ability to understand the world as it is.

Maybe most people here don't see the issue the way I do, maybe they do see it as a race thing and need to expand their perspective. I'd argue you need to expand yours as well to include the very real effects that race and other demographic divisions have on people, their lives, their perspectives, and who they are. Otherwise you'll never understand their actions and decisions.

So first it's not a black thing, now it is a black thing. I think you're trying so hard to avoid making things about race that you're missing the obvious.

My personal idealogy is to make race as insignificant as possible, I can't control what black people do, I can however maybe influence my fellow funnyjunkers to experience life beyond racial margins.

Every single person ever if they attach themselves to a religion or race can run to discrimination if they move far enough back. Protestant and Christianity included(ancient Rome and martyrs). Thankfully we are not Kingons, the sins of the father do not run to the sins of the son. People wan't tohers to shutup about race because -no one- who has a real hand in this issue wants to have to identify with anything, were tired of having to talk about "black" and "white"

And yes, seeing yourself as something other than yourself is a terrible way to judge your own existence. You are Onceman, nothing more, nothing less.

You're missing the point, it's a cultural issue, not racial. We had several hundred years of true racial repression and only about 50 years, nominally at least, of equality. Realistically, there is still a lot of friction between the two. Black culture and white culture in America haven't had much time to really mix yet and as a result they are still very distinct from one another. Race is why that gap was created in the first place, but it's more of a class issue than anything else.

It's our experiences that determine how we see the world. Being born into one group or another will lead to radically different experiences so naturally you're going to relate to other people from that group more than to others. You need somebody to point at and say "If he can get past this, then so can I." The closer that person's life mirrors your own, the stronger that message is. Again, we're not just talking about skin color when we say white and black, we're talking about centuries of cultural divergence. The heroes aren't relatable because they have similar melanin levels as you, they're relatable because they went through similar experiences.

Why are you getting downvoted, this is pretty logical...
And props that you don't see race.

Race is still an issue. Kept an issue actively by people who use it to harm others, and passively due to our euro-centric society. Blacks do not have integration into American society, they have a level of tolerance. The same goes for all minorities. It's something that most people won't let themselves realize because there's a STRONG desire in America to completely ignore both blatant and subtle racism and racial exclusivity.

I have honestly heard from some people that "racism isn't a thing anymore" "there aren't any more racists". "I sure wish I'd stop hearing about racism in the news it's not even a thing." The fact more and more people have tried to call attention to it shouldn't be tiring folks like that out, it should be a wake-up call. If only one in a hundred victims stands up for themselves, then a huge outcry should MEAN something.

I know it's naive, but like I said I live in Canada, GTA, it's incredibly diverse and I see it working here, the main isssue with immigrants is assimilation, I seriously think Islam is harmful, but it needs a reform it can change like Christianity has and muslims can then efficiently assimilate.

Don't know why people are thumbing you down. I'm no African American, but Mohammad Ali is one of my role models.

The reason you're wrong about that is because the people most likely to see themselves as a distinct group of people based on race are American blacks. Anyone classifying them as such is merely reacting to their own perception of themselves.

While that may or may not be true, it's still not something to praise nor call it anything but what it is, childish.

Another thing, if you're in favor of the OP commentor, you're saying chavs in the slums of england are more like, for example, white doctors and white professors, than black doctors and professors are.

Also, with my Kendrick Lamar reference, even if Lamar himself aligns with the black race, I can still get from his raps cause it does not just apply to black people, it applies to all humanity, it's about perception as well because after all, that's what the world is, a perception of our mind.

Lol they were enslaved because of their race, segregated becuase of their race, and now you want them to just stop making shit about race when the very reason they're there is solely becuse of race and not because they chose to go? And also, you (and apparently everyone who thumbed me down cause they failed to actually argue against anything I said) seem to be saying that them seeing themselves as a distinc group is bad thing, so why go turn around and just "align " yourself with the white race? Just because a lot of black people in america don't understand a lot about humanity enough to not care about race doesn't mean I should and you should as well.

in other countries "african american" is just called an American

Because it's in America that blacks are treated as separate. Which is why they form their own communities. Every group seeks a place to be accepted at. If you are not fully accepted and integrated into the larger society, only 'tolerated', then you make your own society-bubble inside of it where you are accepted.

This has been the case all over the world for most of our known history. Blacks do not feel welcome widely, and it's rare to find a black who hasn't had extremely bad racial experiences. And impossible to find any who aren't at least passively affected - just that amount of not-really-one-of-us to make you feel like an outsider.

And in American society, being an outsider is the worst thing you can be.
