My 2 cents on the state of Race Relations in our country!

My 2 cents on the state of Race Relations in our country!
==========================================
I am a 64 yr old white man who served my country in the USAF for 21 years and proudly served with all races. I never discounted anyone due to the color of their skin and I never infringed on anyone’s rights or beliefs because of the color of their skin.
I do take offense to all the people saying “white privileged and white guilt and white oppression”. Racism is when you apply blanket statements to people based on the color of their skin. I think we need to focus on the content of their character and make that the issue. The criminal that killed George Floyd and the criminals that stood there letting it happen belong in prison and that’s a fact!

Why is it that Black lives matter more when a white person takes the life of a black person? Why don’t the 10 black lives that were taken in Chicago last weekend matter? Why don’t the black lives that were taken during the riots matter? Why doesn’t the life of the retired police captain that was killed during the riots matter?

Are there people who are racist on the police force? Yes! Are there people in business who are racist? YES! Are there black people who are racist against whites? YES.. I remember the New Black Panthers leader yelling out “We gotta kill us some cracker babies”. ALL LIVES MATTER and Racism isn’t a one way street!

Remember when BLM was chanting “Pigs in a blanket fry em like bacon”!
The minority community has been done a huge disservice by the politicians that profess to be looking out for them. Why does the Mayor of NY let that city burn? Why were the rioters allowed to destroy black businesses? ANTIFA is using the black youth to further their goal of anarchy and destroying the government. They coordinate the violence then they are handing out prestaged bricks and telling them “Throw it thru the window and get whats yours”.

I’m disgusted by people of any race that diminish any other race or act in a racist or prejudiced manner socially or in business/housing/employment, but I will not accept that because I happen to be born white and I’ve been working since I was 14 yrs old and that I have some kind of white privilege that I’ve taken advantage of. I’ve worked for everything I have and I object to being pronounced guilty because of my race. I WILL NOT APOLOGIZE for slavery as my ancestors lived in the north and fought for the north in the civil war to end slavery. Blaming all whites for the injustices done to blacks is racist just as racist as assuming a black man running must have committed a crime.

As Martin Luther King said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Judge me by the content of my character, NOT the color of my skin!
Some of you may not like this but I’m fed up with being blamed for the actions of a few racist cops just because I’m white! I love everyone and I believe in live and let live.
