Anyone who refers to the truth as "extreme" is no friend of mine. I can't control what happens outside of myself, but I can control who I deal with. Race has never been a defining factor as to whether or not "truth" can be accepted by an individual. However, identification with one's race and the factors that influence that identification can cause people to skew the truth in favor of maintaining solidarity with their ingroup.
For example, if we began seeing statues all over America of a tall, fit
white man and the words "Martin Luther King" on a plaque underneath,
many people would be outraged: people of all races, ethnicities, and
However, if these statues kept popping up and a few
people wrote stories about the great white man named Martin Luther King
who helped to give Blacks their civil rights...and then there were songs
taught to children in school that accompanied cute animations that
described how hard it was for Blacks and Martin Luther King white came
to save them...eventually, people would start to believe that maybe
Martin Luther King was white. In 5 years, it would be accepted as a
historical fact that Martin Luther King was white.
of truth (regardless of race) would know this was wrong, but would be
silenced as an agitator if they ever spoke on it. Eventually, these
people would die and all generations would believe that Martin Luther
King was white. The "I have a dream" speech would be re-recorded at some
undisclosed location in Las Vegas using a white man's voice and history
would be re-written.
If you knew the truth, could you
celebrate Martin Luther King's birthday? Even if everyone around you
told you it was anti-patriotic not to?
Well, that was a
rhetorical question, but you probably know what I think. And this is why
I will boycott anything Christian until there are no more portrayals of
a white Jesus in any church, nativity scene, cartoon, movie, or
illustrated book in America.
