@nipower888: when statistically looking at people as different like most do with blacks, no it isn't. Africans Americans have no real idea what happened to their ancestors in the past and blame the white man for no reason. Plus the media doesn't help, the government doesn't teach us.. Were raised to believe and learn half of actual history when the rest is held secret for a explored knowledge..

Do the polish ever point fingers at Germans? Irish at the English? Anyone else? Why is it only blacks and whites? If people thought of people as people and not different by race, this world would be a pretty decent place.

*didnt read the rest of you comments but I see now

I agree with the bolded part. Someone on here kept saying "us" when referring to slavery. Umm, you were never a slave. You were never beaten. You never had your child ripped from your arms. We all hear stories and read the books. But the idea that they somehow experienced the REAL PAIN of slavery because they are the same race is..... stupid. My aunt, grandma and cousin had cancer. I have NO FUKING IDEA what it's like to deal with cancer. I see some of the effects of it...but have no idea how it really is.

@pooty: what's the reason then?

Police officers kill FAR FAR FAR less people in a year then your average civilian population. In 2014, cops killed about 1,020 people in THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. And some of those killings were justified. Only 300 were black. So cops killed more white people then blacks. But In the CITIES of Chicago, Detroit and New York, there were 1100 murders...just in those 3 cities. So you are more likely to be killed by someone of your own color then by a cop regardless of where you live

That is still a huge disproportion if you go off of population. Roughly 7% of Americans are black males (if we count females the entire black community makes up around 1/8 of the population) yet 30% (3/10 by your statistic) of the murders committed by police involve mostly black males.

the ratio is disproportionate. I'm not denying that. Nevertheless, it doesn't change the fact that a black person or a white person etc is more likely to be killed by a civilian of their own race then by a cop. People have this idea that cops kill without regard, when statistically speaking, a person in our own neighborhood is more likely to kill you.

Most people live in segregated neighborhoods so you're more likely to be murdered by someone of your own race.

Black on black crime usually happens because of the drug trade/gang violence/underworld. Random black people aren't just going around killing random black people. So the chances of a cop killing an innocent black men are actually higher.

Can you provide proof of that statement? Cops killed 300 blacks last year. How many were innocent? IDK. Some of those people were committing crimes and deserved to die. If we are only talking about who kills more "innocent black men", do you have any stats that show that cops kill more innocent black men compared to blacks that kill innocent blacks?

@pooty: you suck. You super suck for actually answering the sarcastic rant. I'm not even mad. This is hilarious. For your last point I'm only more likely to be killed by a member of my own race because I live in a majority black neighborhood.

No. That is not the only reason

@pooty: you are right

I know

I wasn't there and I didn't experience it.

I know

It's now over so everything I said was wrong.

Very true

I could never experience the after effects of slavery and understand it.

You can only understand the after effects that you experience. But you'll NEVER understand what slavery was like.

I don't know what it meant for my people.

Agreed. You don't. Some things have to be experienced to understand.

We are all treated equal. Racism, colorism and systematic racism is a lie

Not true but still not slavery.

that I made up because I'm a sunny feminist pc, sjw scumbag.

Maybe. i don't know you that well.

I should go kill my self for being a lying dirtbag.

I would hope you wouldn't but if you must....

I'm terrible please cops end my worthless black life.

If you're looking for someone to end your life you are FAR, FAR more likely to be killed by someone of your own race then by a cop.

@nipower888: in response to post 48. When you say "us" who are you referring to? You speak of slavery as if you were there. Your experience with slavery is the same as anyone eles. None. I've heard Jews speak the same way about their enslavement to the Egyptians. Everybody thinks they suffered the worst

@termiteone4ever: Thor has hit,blocked and dodged people who have combat speed similar to SBP like Gladiator and Hyperion. He has dodged light based attacks. SBP rarely fights at a speed that either of these two can't handle. He was hit by many people who were never said to be going as fast as they could. SS can take people to the astral plane or use TP very quickly. SS can also go intangible instantly so SBP can't hit him. You don't need the entire gauntlet to harnest the full power of the power gem. The power gem is what bolsters the power of the other gem. Champion with just the PG was able to survive planet destroying attacks with no harm. SBP loses because the PG makes Thor nearly unhurtable and SS can go intangible and use TP which SBP has shown no resistance to.

@pooty: I actually think the opposite. Pride should come from individual accomplishments or group accomplishments that the individual directly participated in. Taking pride for your country winning a war that occurred centuries before your birth is like when sports fans take pride in their team winning the championship. You didn't run in the winning score or play on the field nor did you personally fight the British off of our land over two centuries ago so why would you pat yourself on the back for another person's accomplishment?

OMG!! I said the same thing in another thread. I don't think anyone should take credit for anothers accomplishments just because you have the same color skin. I thought when you said "is about taking pride in the fight to override years of discrimination, subjugation, and oppression" you were talking about Slavery, Jim Crow etc. If you're talking about current conditions then...ok

@dngn4774 said:

Because the term "black power" is about taking pride in the fight to override years of discrimination, subjugation, and oppression. Saying "white power" is like rooting for the house to win in Vegas or in this case like marching in front of a school board to say "Brown was right!"

I think white people have things to be proud of. Such as winning independence from England and conquering a new land. Many technological advances. (I think) whites are the wealthiest race in the world and being in control of possibly the most powerful country in the world..... that being said, i 100% agree with this fellow poster and the term "white power" should not be used unless context is given:

@jgames said:

In a serious note, it shouldn't be wrong to celebrate one own ethnicity, but like the word nigger, white power have some bad association with it. White power is seen as crushing everybody around you to prove the white race is superior. Because of that horrible connotation behind the word, many people see it as offensive.
