Don't get me wrong i am far from being a races person, but it seems like a double standard going on here.

Is anyone else feel the right to be offended when there are BET award shows?
What would happen if there was a CET. Caucasian awards?

What about BET television station.
I don't see a WET station.

BLM everywhere and every station.
What happen to ALM?

What is the next name change. Is the White House up for a name change.

My list could go on but then it would just be a rant.

What's your thought?

I agree. I have felt that way for years. I really don’t care what race someone is, but I am somewhat bemused by this whole thing. I suspect that a level of resentment is developing among the parts of the American public who are not supportive of the overactive BLM movement and their destructive activities.

Long before this came a “thing”, I didn’t object to the Black Congressional Caucus, or to the Black Miss America pageants, or even the Black Movie Awards, but wondered then what would happen if we had a white version? I’m tired of identity politics, and I do resent some Democrats saying that because I’m a Republican and support Trump that I must be a racist. As I’ve said before on this site, my much loved adopted daughter was biracial and I didn’t care. She self identified as white. I never pushed it one way or the other. I just loved her. My feeling toward anyone is based on the person, not the race of that person.

This ended up kind of rambling, not what I intended, but nevertheless, I’m concerned that the violence and destruction inspired by all of what has been going on is being counterproductive. Yes, there are racists ON BOTH SIDES. Hopefully the rest of us us can work around them and reach equitable solutions to the issues at hand.
