Letter to Colin.
I get a lot of criticism for my obsession with these social and political viewings of you and Tommy Sotomayor and Alex Jones, etc., but I can’t keep my head in the sand, and I’ve been following the course of the whole geo political spectrum since around Christmas 2015, I was up all night Christmas Eve that year, in fact, watching the whole ISIS thing unfold.
Anyway, another website I visit is the Horowitz Freedom Center.org site, with that Jewish professor, David Horowitz, I forgot the exact URL, I always start through a Google search, including you. As I’m rapidly approaching my 50thbirthday, I’m finding that I’m becoming, thinking, like my father socially and politically, and that my anger towards him, as there was some bad blood between us as I may have told you, has been waning, and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not, in relation to my psychotherapy. And I don’t know if this will sit well with my sister, who was gung ho over Hillary Clinton, and I’ve been on her sh*t list since then for voting for Trump.
So, one thing about my father, out of many things, was that he got very angry if anyone tries to make him feel bad or guilty. Now, 2 things:
1. I’m finding that I’m racially profiling when I’m out on the street, but I only do that for safety reasons, and especially if my gf is with me. I know you won’t criticize me over this, you may even say that’s smart, both you and Tommy Sotomayor; guess it’s better to be safe and profiling than to be politically correct and in the hospital or worse after being attacked.
2. More importantly, I get very angry internally when I hear the words white privilege; does that make me a racist?, and when I do, I think to myself that I cashed in my white privilege a long time ago in that elevator with that black bully. Now, the only time I think I had white privilege was when I was changing a fuse in my father’s car in NY, NY, and a cop car passed by and only looked at me once, and didn’t even slow down or stop. Is that what they mean by white privilege? This was 20 years ago, and my white friend Phil, when telling him what happened, laughed and said Of course they didn’t bother you, you’re white! I also think this: White privilege? You mean like me, it was a privilege to go to school, buy groceries for my mother, play outside with my friends without feeling extreme anxiety that I’d run into that bully again, when it should be a f*cking right?
And did you hear that story about the black middle school teacher who made the white students stand up at the front of the class and admit and apologize for their white privilege to the non-white students? What kind of sh*t is that? She should be suspended if not fired. This reminds me of what my mother said when she was a schoolgirl in Cuba in the 30’s, the teacher would ask the class Who killed Jesus Christ, knowing full well that my mother was at least one Jew in the class, and of course someone came up with the expected answer: the Jews.
Wow, I’m looking at all this, and you’d think this thing, my story about me, would be recent stuff, in light of all the things you talk about on the web, and I see it for myself and have been seeing it since the 70’s! also, I graduated hs in ’85, 4 years before gangsta rap, with all it’s racial, misogynous, violent lyrics, what with F this, and S that, and B and H and N everything. Well, in the early 80s in hs, me and the other white kids were wondering why the black kids always called each other the N word, then came gangsta rap. Whatever happened to classic, good fun rap like Run DMC, Young MC, Will Smith and The Fat Boys? I tell you, I loved those videos with Will Smith and also the fat boys singing with the late Chubby Checker. And yes, I saw a lot of fooling around, not paying attention, fights, defiance to teacher authority, etc., even back then. I did my best to dodge all that sh*t.
Oh, and in the 60s? my big brother and sister saw the same exact thing, and they were harassed by the angry black kids too. Now, I guess my sister, an early childhood teacher, is teaching their grand or great grand kids. And in the 80’s, my father worked in East NY, and saw plenty of all this, including 30-something yr old grandmas!
Well, that’s about it, just wondering if my anger about the whole white privilege talk makes me racist, I dunno.
By the way, I bought both of your books, the don’t make the black kids angry (the title says it all) and white girl bleed a lot, but I’m in the middle of my IT job training with plenty to read and learn, so it may be some time before I can get to it, and when I do, I’ll have to read it discreetly if I take it outside my home to the library or something, I can just see being called racist for owning that book.
Oh, one more thing: it made me sad when I read as a schoolboy about some little black girl somewhere in the US that was being picked on racially, and she’d come home and scrub her face vigorously to try to reduce her “blackness”. I had a similar feeling, I came home with white guilt after learning about the whole slavery thing in this country, and I’d look in the mirror and wished I weren’t so white (was even asked by some black kid in gym class why I was so white, I look like milk, and another who didn’t know my name got my attention via “hey white person…”), that if I were black or a dark complexioned Latino, they wouldn’t bother me.
I even tried to fit in, to ingratiate myself to them by passing myself off as Cuban, like my mother, whose parents were actually Polish, but I came from a Spanish speaking home, and you guessed it, they weren’t buying it, I was a “white boy”; really amazed my teachers in Spanish class that I was outperforming the Latino kids in the class! Hey, again, I came from a Spanish speaking home! My mother disagreed, but I wanted to fit in at home, too, so I always considered myself Cuban, and just a first generation American. And yes, I got my Puerto Rican friend a Puerto Rican flag flash drive, and I’m in the market to get one with the Cuban flag (with 16GB and USB 3.0, after all, what’s a network administrator without a flash drive on a lanyard around his neck? J )
I think someone said it on the web, that most white people don’t worship their skin color, but what will happen when whites are an extreme minority, will they have, I won’t say white, but ethnic pride, then? Yeah, I’m listening to Kenn Daily on the web, too.
Oh, and I overheard some old black men saying “Look at that, those kids playing, white, black and Asian, all playing nicely, kids do that, it’s us f*cking adults that act all stupid with each other”. That was very refreshing to hear, but I didn’t say anything.
Let’s all pray for the best. Thank you once again for your time.
