It's tribalism 101 in my eyes, just in it's most obvious and blatant form. People still try to stamp it out with conditioning and good feels. But it'll never go away.I've divulged in this topic many a time, arguably too many times I will admit. I've also mentioned many a time my own personal memories and anecdotes in past posts as well, some may be familiar here.
When it comes down to it, I wasn't raised to be racist. I am a person of a mixed background (aka, a mutt), so in the beginning of my life I was just that. A child of love more or less. I tried to get along with just everybody. The only people who ever seemed to have a problem with that were the ones that were raised not to be of "love", I believe. As I got older and I recollected the downright horrid situations I've been in, purely over race bullshit, I only realized that just maybe, the very people who outright harassed and even attacked me, were most likely raised to think and even act that way.
I honestly think it's one of the most unspoken things when it comes to black America, that most black children are homeschooled on the black POV of racism. Some parents have and will go as far as to instill a certain mindset to their young children about "the whiteys", which in turn leads to literal racism on the playground. God forbid your white child goes to school that is predominately black. They will get bullied, they will get ostracized. It won't be by every single black child doing this, sure, but that's not my point. The idea of such a thing shouldn't even be a possibility, let alone a thing that has actually happened to people, who some like me are not afraid to talk about this and bring it to the forefront of people's awareness. This dynamic obviously isn't just attributed to the black community either. Trashy Mexicans do the same shit. It's an entirely different topic but it's also interesting how race/racism dynamics differ between the east and west coasts, which is something I very obviously noticed from my experiences.
All you can do is play the game. Or lose. Your choice.
