Tune in Monday night December 1st 9 p.m. Eastern standard time to take part of this conversation. Call 914-205-5909.
Tonight's episode is about racism in America. Since the Zimmerman trial, eyes have been awakened and now people are really starting to pay attention to racism. I mean it hasn't been this much national exposure to racism since the OJ trial.
There seems to be a lot of tension starting to build over racial profiling and racism in general and it doesn't seem to be letting up anytime soon. One thing's for sure, how it plays out is all up to the people and it starts with discussing the matter in hand.
It's time to wake up people! So join Tay Real & Nizzy Nay as we dive in on this discussion.
In light of recent events in the United States, some commentary on the intellectual nature of racism and its flaws. Included, building up a more robust explanation then the "because it is" explanation commonly implied in media commentary or in elementary schools.
Also including the analogous commentary on sexism and prejudice generally.
Racism in America is not like racism was a century ago. Once upon a time Blacks accepted being treated as property. I'm not referring to the days of slavery. I refer to the time after slavery was abolished. Blacks most definitely was referred to as a lot of things none of which we'll talk about here. After slavery Blacks were acceptant of names, and adjectives to describe their actions. Blacks were told what to do and when to do it. Racism was a way of life for Whites and Blacks. Blacks were oppressed and just staying alive and not being beat was a successful day. Through all the troubles of daily life Blacks kept the faith, did the work, and made the necessary changes to gain respect of the people they now slaved for scraps and basically pennies. Change wasn't easy for Blacks nor the majority race then nor now. Even when we want change, when others fight against the change or just refuse the change it is most difficult to change. America we must change our actions toward one another. We must end institutional racism before racism destroy America. Racism is real. Racism is visited upon Blacks daily by Whites. There is no Black racism. Skin supremacy exist but today it is more money than skin
Conversations Of A Sistah on Blog Talk Radio with host, Ms. Tracy L. Bell, as she discusses "RACISM IN AMERICA" and its impact on our ways of thinking.
Racist doctrines are based on reasoning, express or implied, of the superiority of one human group over others and the belief that biological, social and cultural differences between human groups are transmitted hereditarily.
Racism is also a colonial ideology invented to promote the conquest of other continents by Europeans. The best way to exclude human beings to exploit them, sometimes as slaves, was to say they were not quite human. Therefore, the dominators had no moral obligation to face the dominated.
Racist ideology is sometimes manifested openly, in insults, malicious jokes, acts of hatred, inequality. Nevertheless, in many cases, it is deeply rooted in values, beliefs and stereotypical attitudes.
Racism is also associated with power - institutional, political, economic and social - wielded by the dominant group in society. Thus, in Nazi Germany and South Africa under apartheid, State racism was official.
