Some Caucasian people, mostly Caucasian women, have been making false accusations to police regarding Black people e.g. In Central Park (NYC) Amy Cooper called the police alleging that Christian Cooper "threatened" her because he instructed her to put a leash on her dog. On June 3, 2020, Svitlana Flom approached Jana'e Brown(Black) while she was sitting on a park bench, telling her to leave "her neighborhood" (Upper West Side-NYC). Svitlana reported Ms. Brown to the police, lying that the latter was "threatening her & her children". Svitlana harassed the woman for over an hour. She even went so as to ask Ms. Brown to accompany her to the police. Making false reports on Black people seem to be a commonplace occurrence these days. Your thoughts?
No matter how hard we try there will always be a few bigots in the world - nothing we can ever do will eliminate all of them. That fact, coupled with modern media capabilities and a willingness (eagerness) to report that kind of thing guarantees that we will hear of it. It may be .000001% of the population, but we are led to believe it is a common, everyday, event for all black people.
Grace, as a "black woman" this article may be of interest, it is a bit long but give me your assessment. A lot of this current "controversy" is distracting fluff brought to life by the cell phones. The more substantive issues behind it as usual remain concealed.
It probably happens, fortunately, no one has behaved that way toward me, at least not recently.

Credence2, I am Black. I was born into a solidly middle class family in Harlem in 1954. My father was an instructor in the postal office while my mother was a registered nurse. I was one of the lucky Blacks who never had childhood deprivations. I find the phone calls to be dangerous, even insidious. You maintain that the phone calls are superficial fluff but such phone calls can be quite dangerous, given the nature of some police officers. These people are making fabrications on innocent Black people which in the wrong circumstances could get them arrested or worse.
Black people need to become socioeconomically empowered. In that way, Black people will be respected instead of being barely tolerated at best & disdained at worst. Socioeconomic empowerment, not marching & voting, is the only way Blacks can gain respect. Dr. Claude Anderson, who is Black, indicated that the net worth of Blacks hasn't changed since Reconstruction. Dr. Anderson further relayed that in 2050 as things progress as they are, the net worth of Blacks will be zero. Black people are being attacked by others because others know that the latter's socioeconomic net worth is very insignificant.
P.S. No one has ever behaved that way towards me either.

Hegemony I was reading wrenchbiscuit's thread on justice when it comes to non-Caucasian people and decided to post this thread. Although non-Caucasian people i.e. Blacks, Asians/Oceanics, Multliracials, Natives, and Latinos are gaining some socioeconomic power & leverage, Caucasians have the...

Poor people are black, black people are poor. Why does America believe this?

The United States government, and the media, are filled with professional liars. This is not surprising, especially in government. Many elected officials, like Hillary Clinton, are former lawyers, and American lawyers are "the" best liars and con-artists in the world. Understanding...

I know the revelation I'm about to share with you will be vehemently rejected, controversial and outright offensive. So, please, let me prepare you by saying that, if you accepted God, believe in God and acknowledge his Son Jesus then hold on to your faith in all purity, to the very end.For the...
