I've encountered this claim too. I've also witnessed a variation of it where an offended black person claims their hurt feelings stem from historical or ancestoral memories that are dredged up when they happen to be offended or outraged. Additionally, I've run into this line of thought:Also the concept of “generational trauma” due to slavery is ridiculous - how can it be traumatic if you never experienced it firsthand?
3, 4, and 10 aren't necessarily terrible ideas, but the rest of that shit is either a nice idea in theory, but unworkable in practice, an insane idea that would be a disaster if implemented, or both.
Even I can't tell the difference between white superamists and lefties anymore.
Same shit happens if you try to apologize and take responsibility for “antiblackness”. If you’re nonblack, anything you say can and will be used against you. Even with the perfect apology? They’ll say your fucking wording is bad. Because fuck authorial intent. (Actually, your intentions are probably insincere anyway.)Of course, lower class whites don't want to be treated like niggers. Nobody wants to be a nigger. So, they object. Then BLM uses their objection to prove that they're racist, and therefore deserve to be treated like niggers.
I do not see how that differs from the status quo.BLM is currently successfully negotiating with culture for a new status quo.
The best summary I can give for the proposed change, based on my admittedly limited powers of observation, is:
"Let's all start treating middle class black people the way the system currently treats middle class white people, and let's all start treating lower class white people the way the system currently treats lower class black people."
Put more succinctly: "Treat middle class blacks like people, and great lower class whites like niggers."
So, I'm a redneck, from a long line of white-trash Aryan Nation rednecks, who cling to their ethnic identity as a badge of honor because they literally have nothing better to show for themselves. (I got out because I read too much and it made me talk funny.) Trust me when I say that niggers have it worse.I do not see how that differs from the status quo.
We have terms like hillbilly and redneck for a reason. They connote roughly the same thing.
The talk about a history that was robbed from blacks I'm not sure about. Have not seen a written history in any of the countries from which slave were bought. Am aware of an oral tradition that was passed down in song and specific to individual tribes. Many of which have been wiped out.

I generally find "misery poker" tedious and boring even by proxy, so I'll try to keep this brief:No.
First, your experience is likely very different from others based on when, where and how you were brought up. And so was theirs. Life of someone from Appalachia is very different from someone in inner city.
Second, don't know of any white supremacist rednecks who became famous rappers or made fortunes dealing drugs.
There's this cluster of things people use to make claims of who has it worst. Opportunity, education, culture, etc. There's people on Twitter right now claiming whites used to eat blacks as a matter of routine, that they were literally food at one point.
No reason to take anything for granted. Be specific and quantify as much as possible if you want to make a case.
