I’m not white, I get accused of trying to be white by some ignorant people.
I’ve made choices in life to get me where I’m at and going in a certain direction. For that I feel blessed for it, not trying to be a certain skin color.
I’m from the perspective of I’m American 100%. My heritage should be a non issue to others, for me it’s not relevant to my character or identity, maybe due to as I don’t make it one. I don’t hide or deny it, but it should not be a factor, yet for some it seems absolutely a necessity to impress and impose upon others as they feel their identity has caused oppression.
Honestly I feel some make it an issue so much to the point as to be creating their own prison.
Maybe, call me crazy just maybe I don’t have run ins with the law go bad because I try to not provide reason or probable cause, it’s not to say it hasn’t happened or won’t happen that I’ve been profiled again.
Yet in the times it has happened, I have a clean record, I am able to conduct myself in a manner that sets all parties on their way no harm no foul and no citation. The funny thing is I’ve been given the most static from law enforcement officers that are from my same or similar heritage when it did happen and they were rookies, new to the force.
I don’t believe in white privilege, that’s in my opinion just another “race card” excuse for someone to pull. Fact is there are real “winners and prime individuals” of all colors of skin.
I boil it down to life isn’t fair and there will be people who will make it difficult, it’s how you as a person prepare and work through these is what defines the outcome.
Now if I want to get even more real about it, certain people are just flat out “special” and there is nothing that can be done except do the best you can when these possible life altering moments of the planet’s colliding occur.
