America, I humbly disagree “Racism a Mental Illness.” It appears to be an obvious fallacy misinformed assumption propagated by Black academic thinkers. Racism is a constructed systematic social practice with the intent to uplift and benefit White people above so-called minority people in a society. Racism is closely observed in societies (America’s and defunct Apartheid South Africa as examples) where White people and light skin people that identify as White are the predominate race or race controlling the society. I am not certain why certain Black Americans desire to propagate this out right lie that dismisses America’s predesigned social system, but racism is alive in doing well in the American society controlling all levels in American government and economic distribution in the American society.
Racism exists clearly (Yet denied by the majority White control social establishment) when Whites control, manage, administrate and administer the input and output of all social-economic resources while deliberately limiting and blocking access to the same societal resources to a targeted non-white skin races / groups integrated, mixed and mingled with them in a society.
Racism cannot be eliminated by pretending it’s non-existent, nor by assuming it is a dysfunctional mental disorder because it is widely practiced and acceptable as a norm in the minds of White people who benefit most of all from the devious social practice. The pillars of racism must be destroyed or torn down in a society where practiced. America began the deconstruction of racism, but it has failed miserably.
- Ending slavery in America was a deconstruction of racism, which resulted in – Black people building, and establishing townships in the once, Southern Confederate Slave States – this unsung result was a deconstruction of racism.
- The passage of civil rights acts protecting Black American citizens was and is a deconstruction of racism.
- After Black Americans demanded, White established order to level the playing field in this society and remove imposed Jim Crow social barriers against Black Americans. Our leaders involved in all social institutions apparently believed our group had arrived at some sort of completeness and acceptance with / by White society. Imagine if Black Americans were previously allowed by White established order to motivate and develop an identity – not identified as European origin – our group would not be experiencing the high degrees of social oppression found in too many Black communities.
Here we are 50 years later with most all leaders (From the President down to local Aldermen, and from the highest levels of American academia) of the American way of life – obstinately refusing to give up on Americas failed Black and White integration plan.
Integration of ideas is a noteworthy social necessity and endeavor of humanity. The method of integration into American White society since 1964 limits Black Americans advancement in the society by lesser social degrees compared to White Americans in terms of competing equitably for the limit resources the American society produces and creates from the human imagination.
Had Black Americans stayed / remain on the path of group actions and responsibility in this great social experiment the past 50 years experiences would have resulted in less of our people living in poverty conditions?
We as a group have become too dependent on the crumbs this society gives. We have become too dependent on White people controlling and administering our human and social input and output in this society.
Finally, another means of deconstructing racism is – by the targeted group of racism (Black Americans) taking control of their group / race social-economic input and output in the society by controlling, administrating, and administering the fruits of labor this American society provides all its citizens…Simply stated – Black Americans must unify!
In the case of the Black man / woman being the ultimate targets of “racism.” We only need to unite with one another based on our shared commonality “race,” then take control of our resources – human and societal – like other races and groups appear to do naturally in the American society.
Racism is definitely not a human mental disorder if it were Blacks / Africans would have display the same mean spirited intent of “racism,” against White people when Europeans Whites landed on African shores 700 years ago.
