This piece is unbelievable.

You are not a defender of minorities when you dismiss the individual. You dismiss the choices, hardships, and rationality of every white person in their strive towards a better life for themselves and their family. You undermine any success that they may find on the basis of their skin color. You treat an entire class as homogeneous when those that make it up have their own mind and circumstances.

This entire piece states any success from a white person and any failure from a black person as attributed to their skin color, but don’t view the opposite as also true. This is the basis of race conflict theory where you only see the “oppressor” and the “oppressed.” You inflict this mindset on you and your readers.

Stop dismissing the individual and pushing race conflict theory. It is unbecoming, and I am tired of becoming associated with these sorts of people.
