    Why Don't We Murder More White People? Interesting video...



    The statement at 10:19 is the most intense in my opinion.

    Not sure what to say about this, it needs to be seen to be understood.

    It was shown in 2019 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

    https://ybca.org/art-critical-conversations/

    It was uploaded by a guy on my political team which is cool.


    I tried to rip it with youtube-dl and got this error message for the first time

    ERROR: Video unavailable
    This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Natalie Hoole .
    but it is still up in the U.S.

    It was made by Jonathan Garcia, but Natalie Hoole, who may be the British leftist has claimed it?

    Out of curiosity what is the statement at 10:19? I'm at work and under duress (surrounded by white people) so it's not the best idea to click on something with a title like that.

    This is it from a young woman who may be Latina.

    I think the insidious nature of whiteness begins at a very, very young age. And because of the historic tie we have to white children as pure members of our society, we do not address the harm and the evil that they inherently bring to communities of color, to the school playground, to the classroom, to wherever they are.

    We don't address that because they are too young and the criminalization and ways we adultify children of color a disproportionate rate to white children is horrible.

    The harm and evil white children bring is evident by the lack of violence and conflict at predominantly black schools.

    Life is a very complicated lottery. We encounter good luck and bad luck; much of the "luck" is due to external factors beyond our control: genes, upbringing, inherited wealth, serious mental or physical injury. Blindness, for example, is a piece of bad luck that may be a dominant context for an entire life.

    In America, prejudice against blacks — which takes various forms — is a dominant factor in blacks' lives. This fact is something that is quite clear to blacks every day of their lives. Whites can appreciate this only with difficulty. Watching videos like OP's is one way for whites to learn this.

    Years ago I watched a video showing a class for 18 year-olds given by a specialist in race relations. She had these kids play a game: Those with blue eyes became an "out group" to be ridiculed by the brown-eyed kids. The kids all understood this was a game; obviously they all knew that at the end of an hour everything would be back to normal. There was no physical violence or anything like that; the kids just sat in their chairs and interacted minimally. Yet one blue-eyed girl became enraged and tearful and had to leave the room! A silly less-than-hour-long game was intolerable for her; but this is a life-long struggle for blacks.

    I think you're trying to send a message with sarcasm. The message that gets across is that you are unable or unwilling to empathize. You didn't even watch the video, did you?

    How do you know this? Have you asked all "the blacks" you know? How many do you know?

    Do you think what these kids are saying is representative of the opinions and experiences of most people of color? Because to me, it doesn't sound like it. It sounds like these are kids, born on or around 1996, and who have been indoctrinated with a particular ideology that is increasingly dominant in primary, secondary, and tertiary education in the US and Anglosphere. This definitely doesn't sound like the typical black or brown person you'd meet in America. Indeed, the funny thing here is that their entire framework is one made up in the very whiteness they are describing.


    Also, let me guess, you are white?

    I'm not sure how I feel about the video. I do know that you can't start a conversation that was started centuries ago so a conversation starter it is not. It does have the potential to provide some unpopular aspects to a viewer who is not familiar with the whole being a brown person thing. However, it's like the bible, which can be used by both good and ill-willed people to drive an agenda. I personally learned nothing new from it and didn't take away anything meaningful. To each his own I guess.

    You think that video and those people are representative of a "brown person's" views generally?

    Did you mean to ask a different question?
