White America: We Have A Problem

The problems regarding white privilege and white supremacy extend far beyond dangerously stressed relations with Black America. Just yesterday Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was not just kicked out of Donald Trump’s press conference, but told “get out of my country” by a Trump supporter (even though Ramos is a U.S. citizen). Earlier this week Jeb Bush came under fire from Asian-Americans for suggesting that people from Asian countries come to America to have babies in order to secure U.S. citizenship.

As African-Americans, we have lived under a system of racism and discrimination in this nation for hundreds of years. Many times the responsibility of blame has shifted in both directions.  Anytime we try and air our concerns and/or grievances, we are accused with “playing the ‘race card’” or feeling unjustly entitled.  However, these recent gaffes (or philosophies in Trump’s case) in the political arena, combined with a long string of violent racial encounters over the last few years betray that narrative; it illuminates the level of intolerance privileged white America have with people who are different, yet living among them – all while exploiting and appropriating their cultures.

The race problem has never solely belonged to African-Americans, Latin-Americans, or even Asian-Americans (including those from the Middle East). It’s a white problem, and white people MUST own that.
