Imagine this…..a program is written and produced and then put out over the airwaves. It reminds the world of one particular races mistakes and past moments of bad judgement. It is bound to stir up feelings of hate, shame, guilt, anger, and may even bring about even worse race relations than those that already exist. The show is called “Dear Black People”. It will be followed by the sequels “Dear Puerto Rican People”, “Dear Mexican People”, and “Dear Asian People (Dear Bad Drivers)”.
Imagine the outcry by those races affected. The Blacks, Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, and the Asians would all call these shows stereotypical, racist, and not fit for television. These shows would be what they say they are. We could do one called “Dear Catholic People” and remind them of their past atrocities. We could do a show on every single race, color, and creed. Let’s take a look at what we could do…..
*Dear Black People…we could focus on the warring tribes of long ago Africa, the very same tribes who trapped and sold their own people into slavery via Dutch Traders. We could talk about how most of the African tribes were nomadic and would move from area to area, depleting any trees (for fire), animal life (food, clothing), and water. Talk about anti-environmentalists. There is much more….warlords, human rights violations, etc.
*Dear Mexican People…The Mayans and the Incas early influence including murder, slavery, human sacrifice. They become drug producers and exporters, warlords, corrupted governments, and many other heinous acts that would discredit them as a race.
*Dear Asian peoples…Ghengis Khan, Mao, and others that created a violent and regrettable history. Originators of guerilla warfare, the Asian peoples have a history of tribal warfare, slavery, and drug production and export.
There is one key word here in all these things….history. Different times, different peoples, different ways of life. Should todays generations of these races be constantly reminded of events that they themselves had no part of? Should they be punished for the events of a hundred, two hundred, a thousand years ago? This is what we need to contemplate.
I am contemplating several things. I may cancel my Netflix subscription. I may write a book about all these violent and inhumane histories of non-white races. I may start a protest against the producers, actors, and patrons of this show. I may boycott the advertisers who use it in the form of product placement or advertising. I don’t know about you, but I am truly growing weary of this politically correct dissection of ONE race, the demonization of the white race.
NONE of the past indiscretions of any of these races can be changed or forgotten, nor should they. They have made us what we are. They have taught us many things. Isn’t it time we worked together and make a better future than drudge up the past and destroy any advancement in race relations? I think the phrase is “Grow up”.
