Look, some white people need to realize they're privileged. I'm a white American. I know I have some privilege I don't think about but it's still there. If you have to think hard and use Google to find a reason you're oppressed, you're not. I think what it boils down to is this: white people are subconsciously afraid of being the underdog. If black people get more power, more influence, white people won't be dominant anymore. I think some white people are afraid of being treated like how we've treated black people for centuries. Slaves, not good enough to use the same drinking fountains or schools, not able to vote or own property, not represented in media, stereotyped, killed when we surrender and the murderer isn't put in jail. That's scary. We're fine ignoring when racism happens today, we say racism was decades ago so it's all in the past. But the minute we realize it *might* happen to us, oh hell no.
