edit: thought this facebook post was apropos to the idea of "identity politics"
This isn't anti white: So let me go on a long anti white rant.

Hey, speaking for myself; just want to clarify..

When I've used the term identity politics, it is in no way an attempt to dismiss anyone's points. I think dismantling systemic and individual racism is absolutely imperative. For me, I attempt to use this term to describe a specific line of reasoning from both sides of the issue that I believe to be harmful. Specifically: the idea that all individuals of a perceived group will behave or think a certain way based solely on the fact that they belong to said group.

As things become more heated, I've seen more and more individual people be dismissive of others because of their perceived groups rather than their concerns or points. I've seen potentially educational conversations devolve into name calling quicker than I could blink. This is what I specifically have a problem with. Anger is a reasonable response to these events, but hatred is not.

Group-based thinking is definitely not inherent of either the BLM members, or those who are critical of their actions, and I think it's important to make that distinction. It's a human behavior that seems to crop up as people get excessively angry in these sorts of situations.

So, what about the new civilian terrestrial drone they deployed in Dallas? That is scary!!
When negotiations fail, they can easily and safely kill the shooter/whatever from a distance, just like the prez! This is gonna set a precedent for various agencies everywhere. This is not good, , , ,

(Not a 'bomb robot', its a drone, for sure, they can do the deed in their shirtsleeves in the chiefs/mayors office, , , this frightens me, , ,)

I think real societal change will always be violent, as there will always be a continuum of reaction to change which spans from those who see it as a necessity to those who see it as the end of the world. Change, and the fear it evokes, will always lead to violence. Even those who go about enacting change non-violently have been met with violence.

The violence we're seeing now is reminiscent of the 1960's in many ways, and even though it sucks, it's still kinda cool, because you know where it's headed. Everything is on the table, now. The oligarchy, racism, the environment, mental illness, poverty: they're all issues being fought over. And my guess is, it's going to get worse before it gets better.

Viva la revolucion!

Nothing brightens my day like waking up to news of dead cops. I'm hoping for a couple dozen more pork chops getting fried before the weekend is up.

That's not an anti-white rant. It's a list of historical facts. He's simply saying that black power doesn't mean white disempowerment. It's a valid point. When people say "I'm not racist but..." it's usually followed by something explicitly or implicitly racist. I just don't see that here.

It's literally a paragraph of rhetoric which implies that white people are responsible for all of the sufferings of the blacks.

White people were responsible for the suffering of blacks. Is that in dispute?

Same reasons the kids can't grasp feminism.
