She also focuses entirely on racism aimed at Latinos and Blacks. She completely ignores racism toward whites and acts as though it does not happen. I can understand that racism toward colored peoples is more relevant, and I can understand the aim at correction, but if she is going to include lessons on sexism, ageism, and on any other difference, I really feel like it should have been mentioned. Racism is not something exclusive to white people, and acting as though they're never discriminated against is simply moronic.
Now that I've diffused pretty much all of your first paragraph by quoting myself (sorry I couldn't correct every mistake you made), allow me explain status quo. Status quo is a matter of perspective. I live in an area that is probably 80%+ Hispanic. Being a white male, I'm sometimes discriminated against. I am apart of the minority. You are telling me that, as a part of the minority, I am the status quo. AND BEFORE YOU GO TALKING ABOUT THE COUNTRY, LET ME RERERERERERECLARIFY SOMETHING.
Status quo is a matter of perspective.
Maybe if I type it bigger, people will get it. I don't care if someone out there does not agree with my definition, because at this point, everyone should know exactly what I mean. I'm not talking about the country as a whole. I'm not talking about the ghetto or some small town in Alabama. I'm talking about my specific situation. Yes, maybe the status quo is white male where you live, but it is not everywhere. Don't come here talking about one status quo, one based entirely off statistics diluted by opinions, and one on such a massive scale it is not only difficult to conceive, but barely relevant.
What she's saying is, racism in some shape or form is so imbedded into culture and society that people don't even realize it's there, an example being you.
I like how you're calling me ignorant, but you don't explain. How am I ignorant? I'm plainly aware racism exists. I'm sorry that I can't be omnipotent in the sense I know all things from all perspectives at one time, but neither can you, and I think I've done a pretty good job with the information I have.
And what is the deal with paragraphs 2 & 3? So everyone is racist and ignorant? What message are you telling me here? I'm sorry I'm too ignorant toward racism to understand.
