Dear white people,
It is unfortunate, that is has come to this; unfortunate how a social construct, illogical and unscientific ideal has lead many of you to supremacist beliefs. Before you close your mind, stating, “I (me) don’t know sh*t”, and/or uttering a racial slur at your mentally constructed image of myself, hear me out! Trust me, it will not take long at all.
Now, I know yall have great imaginations, with fairytales such as, “Caucasians built the pyramids of Egypt” or that, “animals are capable of deep intellectual thought”. So, for a few seconds use that vast imagination of yours and imagine. Imagine someone hating you with the up most intensity. Someone who judges you personally, without knowing anything about you at all; not your character, contributions, patriotism, #education or actions; but simply due to your predisposed phenotypic genetic make-up. Now imagine if you had to experience and face these extreme prejudicial judgments, from the time you were a toddler. A time when life is carefree, Love is unconditional, and everyone is perfect in your eyes; just imagine what that could have done to your Psychological-emotional development. Well unfortunately, this is what a majority of “ethnic-minorities” experience, yes even at the time of birth we experience these negative judgments. Experiences, like this 3-year-old baby boy experienced in a Kansas Restaurant, According to KCTV, the 3-year-old baby (African American), wandered off from a birthday party, when another customer (off duty fireman) was seen using racial slurs and spat on the child [see full story here: (http://fox6now.com/2018/03/04/hes-a-baby-charges-to-be-filed-after-3-year-old-called-racial-slur-spat-on-by-firefighter-at-hooters/)]. Of course, you all would love to use dismissive statements such as, “this was an isolated incident” or “I haven’t see that before”, but the fact of the matter is, incidents like this occur a lot more often than we like to admit. According to the FBI Uniform Crime Report (2016), 15,254 law enforcement agencies across the nation reported 6,121 hate crime incidents involving 7,321 offenses occurred (source: https://ucr.fbi.gov/hate-crime/2016/topic-pages/incidentsandoffenses). That is about 610 reported cases per month, not to mention the countless unreported and nonparticipator police agencies’ reports. Therefore, the arguments of, “racists attacks are isolated incidents” or “do not occur as often as we think” are completely invalid.
