    Am i alone here who else feels this way?

    Almost 40 now and grew up living a very "normal" happy childhood. We were on the more "poor" (almost mid scale) side financially speaking because we had 1 provider my father who slaved at a factory and worked in excess so my mom could stay home with the kids.And he provided enough to live on in the most humble terms. I grew up without prejudice (being white myself) sure a few jokes here and there and innocent stuff but no hatred ever in the heart. I had friends from all walks of life my neighborhood was like a dividing line so I went to school with some well off kids, more mid cut, and the low end.

    Don't get me wrong I've seen and heard prejudice just not on a high level I suppose of "true hatred". Guess I'm just lucky I've never encountered this realm on such an extreme degree where people are trying to go at each other's throats based on color , religion, sex orientation or whatever. I grew up and currently reside in Midwest , And lived in Los Angeles for a few years and it was same if you wanna go geographically from what I've observed , aside from travels throughout US in major cities all the same.

    Like I said there is no hate here among my fellow "common man" and I would say roughly a third of my (friends, associates, acquaintances) I know and love or see somewhat regular are people of color or gay whatever.

    Is it just me or has the whole race division thing been drummed to death by the gov controlled media or do you think or believe it's real? Just some real talk from RP please anyone share your thoughts. I have a dark sense of humor so I get that, but if you wanna open no b.s. punk ass Dr Phony Phil shit here just go!

    Wtf Merica what has this place really become and turning into with all your mind control, manipulating, socialism b.s.? Power to the libertarians!!!

    Guess in a nutshell here's best way to describe the media irony from my perspective. While in LA I first worked in a restaurant which had was small and had a crew of maybe a dozen tops! Half were white, 1 Mexican cook, couple Mexican prep guys, 2 Armenian del drivers, with Korean owners lol.....And we got along great!!! And at times even partied like family during special events.

    I eventually moved up while out there working for a big insurance Corp. I started in mailroom with another southern white boy from Ark , a brutha from Gardenia CA, and Philippine guy haha. We all got along like brothers! Eventually I got a cubicle and started doing more desk type shit, still though almost half my friends there were black and everyone was fine.

    Hard to say it's just in personal DNA type thing when everyone I encounter for most part seems to be "somewhat ok" or we get along great. But it's never been about race , religion, personal differences etc?? Idk hard as I may seem on here which is very real and same in person...Guess I just relate too well and I'm too real. Thanks mom (rip) and pop you did well

    Grew up in South Florida and had similar circumstances. Our neighborhood was diverse to say the least and we knew nothing of this crap going around today. The common denominator was all our parents worked and was mostly blue collar. My Dad was a Sheriff Deputy and my Mom stayed at home.
    In my group of childhood friends was Three whites, two blacks, One Puerto Rican, One Cuban and one kid who was from Hawaii, but from Japanese decent. We all played youth sports together, Rode bikes and hung out at the Ball field like we owned it. Whenever the City had an event going on like adult softball game we would resort to a game of street football. One thing was common on my block; all the parents knew and liked each-other. So, if you were at another kids house and you misbehaved you got the punishment of that parents choosing or how they administered punishment.
    One day at a friends house during Christmas break we got bored (The eight of us) and a friendly challenge of who could throw a rock furthest started. I was challenged by another friend, he throws rock and the challenge was official. I got up and my buddies Mom yells out from living room window "don't throw rocks boy's" I couldn't let the challenge go and before i threw it my buddies Mom came out of the house had me on ground and spanked me with a spatula. This buddy was a black kid and went on to play at Boston College and then NFL. I remember crying on ground with those little kid dry heaves. My buddies Mom sent him out with a handful of ritz crackers and grape Kool-aid and a warning to stop crying or i'll get another. As i ate the crackers and drank the juice i remember my buddy saying to me: "Momma hits hard, don't she?" When i got home my Mom was already notified and i got a one-day in the house punishment..........In those days during no school period it was a death penalty. I remember white parents using corporal punishment on black, Latin etc. And vice-a-versa.
    Bottom-line we didn't divide like people do today.
    What eventually ruins that neighborhood and it's cohesiveness was illegal immigrants from Haiti and Jamaica. These groups had no intention on becoming Americans and getting along.

    Not sure what you were really asking Murphy, but that's my experience growing up in 80's into early 90's.

    Sounds like we of similar age Recon and experienced it in different parts. Good stuff brutha! Point of this thread is in a nutshell is sharing "similar" experiences to to what Recon and i have while dissolving this myth there is some unique divide here amongst Mericans the media likes to perpetuate.

    If you have a experience that's opposite no matter what color or situation please feel free. This is a forum to us all and I for one will not judge.

    i know what you mean.. everyone is on edge... it's not like it used to be, you
    always had to be careful and use your head, but the young people are way more
    polarized over race and income than they used to be, not even that long ago.
    it wasn't even like this in the 90s or early 00s. the rot is from the top down in
    this country. the worst are in "higher" education and media, entertainment, they
    have clouded the minds of the youth, all youth of all ethnicities.

    there are parts of town i used to go to that i would never think about going
    today. lack of respect and good will is off the charts, when those character
    traits used to be totally commonplace and expected.

    Glad you know Snow!.Wanna say Fu?k those uneducated d-bags.....but wait uneducated douchebags are my enemy , along with feds, local police "squash heads" In other words if you are part of the scheme "go Fukk yourself" If you are part of the corrupt cop or military scheme believe me no prejudice here. Your system is broke and misinforms you and I for most part I view u as a factim not a perp of crimes. And yes while I'm American I'm not a dumb Fukk typical Merican cu#t who bows to cop or military without question or regard. After all you do ultimately serve the enemy knowing or not!rhi

    People look at this as a race issue when in fact it's nothing but economics. Black Lives Matter is the black version of the KKK. Both groups are represented by the poor, urban n the former versus rural in the latter, but poor nonetheless. Education is lacking in both cases and the moral fabric of each group is being eroded by the effects of poverty, crime and an increasing dependence on government subsidies.

    It's easy to see color but economics is the root of the issue and the culture that manifests because of it.

    Swinging you get it! This whole thing is more a political or business issue than social. Just trying to reach out and get perspective from more common man but obviously you get it. All I can say people is STOP the fukking the madness and misinformation.

    Don't know how else to put it but things are scary right now. I did NOT vote for Trump btw. Fact is I'm too smart to play a gm I know is set too fail. Almost 40 here as stated never voted once and PROUDLY never will!! I know the whole things rigged and always been (in my lifetime anyhow) , While I said as much to the military scum who visited my house almost 25 years ago for a visit. Told those fukks I'm not your man and won't be a slave like a fukking boss and they walked!!! Fukk the gov, Fukk the cuntry I'm my own free man as I was born (and USA did not gift your freedom it's a god right fyi!!!!) Man is his own worst enemy and any military or gov faction who tells you otherwise is a liar!!


    Just think about it all recent wars Merica jumped into without cause. Next time you see a soldier say I'm sorry not thank you! Truth is they were duped into believing a lie!

    Like you R.P. ** I sit and wonder at times where the life I did love and enjoy has become but a distance memory. I just sit and shake my head with all the shit going on. Chicago 700 murders so far - WTF

    We lived in Mill Valley Ca. Fun times to be sure - circa 1970
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-YaWE0zu-c
    Watch the Vid and look at the Faces - knew many of those kid's

    My High School - about 700 of us - all races and we lived and played together in harmony. I really can't recall many instances of fighting or anything racial among any of us. Mixed people of upper/middle/lower. Nothing condescending from anyone.


    In my 20's I lived in San Rafael then a Company move put me just outside Oakland - I remember walking the street's at night with zero fear. I don't know why, it was just the way life was then. Cop's were everywhere, maybe that's why..........

    A transfer landed me in Canada - Vancouver 1st then onto Toronto.

    Swinging J hit the nail on the head in my humble opinion. Economic's.
    Thinking back to the 1960's and early 70's most everyone I knew had a job. LBJ's vision of a great society produced welfare and gov handout's. The drift towards entitlement has led us to today's society - not as a whole - but gaining. Why work when you can realize upwards of 50G a year and zero tax.
    Then there's the proliferation of drugs which as you know has been raging for decades. Where the fu*ck is the gov.?

    Today's Society I put the blame directly at the foot of every politician who ever ran or held office above dog catcher. Hope and Change my ass.

    My brother sit's with a long gun close by protecting his property in Arizona.
    My youngest brother has not visited relatives (racial issues) in Detriot for over 20 years - this is not life, it's survival for the one in Arizona and by choice for the one in Michigan.
    My nephew is flying mission's over Syria. WTF are we doing there - the blame goes right to the top of gov.

    The stupidity of elected officials shapes today's society thru MSM.
    Egypt was fine before Hilary and Obama. Don't believe the shit you read and hear. I was in a plane circling Cairo the day after 9-11. Everyone on that plane was shown respect as we went thru customs. The Egyptian people were/are kind, hard working. They put up with their Gov because they were SAFE. Enter those 2 doofuses and the country explodes.
    Lybia, Iraq, Afgan. Young men dying for what and don't tell me Oil cause I know a little bit of just what reserves the US has. We do not need the Middle East.
    Fu*kin wars so needless. Let those people kill each other. We are not the world police.

    The young and old people taking to the streets today, rioting, are not representatives of the United States of America. They are nothing but fools- they have been duped - sheep led to believe garbage spewed by power hungry crooks, thugs and politicians (I should have just said politicians).

    50 years R.P. - almost 2 generations later since I moved from Mill Valley. Yes I am sad.

    Yes its driven by the media who are aligned with the oligarchs. Its just another form of political control, just like how they use drugs as a form of political control and sexual liberation. The Reagan administration was heavy into using race, which is a false concept, and drugs as a form of political control.

    BLM is absolutely in no way similar to the kkk

    The kkk is a group of indivuals that violently attacked and killed blacks for decades. They wanted blacks to remain slaves and they wanted a white America.

    BLM message is that they want equality. They protest but they are not violent. Are there a few scuffles here or there, of course. But nothing even remotely comparable to the kkk.

    Please stop spreading lies SJ, you're better than that even if you really cant stand the BLM

    Man some of you guys need to take a college course, systematic racism exists.

    Of course living on the west and east coast we see less racism, its where all the minorities live! Do you remember the electoral college map of Trump and Clinton. The south still treats blacks like shit....

    Youll be surprised how unintentionally racist someone is just by getting to know them....

    Yep... and sadly when a group of minorities finally group together to fight for equality, they're compared to the kkk

    The problem is obvious to everyone except those that are part of the problem

    We will have to respectfully agree to disagree. Both were born out of poverty. When there is no public outrage by BLM for police getting shot and chants of "Pigs in a blanket, fry'em like bacon" it's a threat. You understand the KKK no longer lynches blacks because it's 2016. They are still a despicable group but I would submit the BLM movement is even more dangerous because they have the backing of the far left. There is no political collateral to be gained by even the alt-Right courting the KKK.

    well, back in my 2nd grade class, we had an all out race war with the mescins in corpus christi....

    the leader of the mescins, named "Ramone" was about 13-14 years old (due to constantly failing and being a half retard), was about a foot taller than every othe student in the whole f'n school, and he had a wooden leg that had several straps on it, that went up to secure the wooden leg to his thigh....

    at the big "rumble", a pack of white second graders held him down while a fat red headed kid and I unbuckled the straps and removed the leg.... there were about 8 other fights going on at the same time (all on the playground of our elementary school, I should add).

    Once we took the leg off, we held it in the air and ran off, and all the white kids on the playground quit fighting and followed us, cheering wildly as we had won the rumble.... Ramone was hopping after us on one leg, and several mescins and teachers were now following after the pack of 100 or so white second graders following us.... (the playground was like 20 acres of an open area field, and was huge, so the celebration and chase took a while.....)

    eventually, the white teachers caught up with the leaders of the victory march, and made us surrender the leg.....

    OP

    You are almost 40 years old and just figuring this out? Okay lol

    Race and division is an industry. Many like to benefit from this industry, so they will do what they can to keep it going.

    Another self-hating white dude. You've been brainwashed to hate yourself and it worked. The only way you may have been "Privileged" is if your parents were wealthy and it opened doors for you. In other words, your parents worked hard and you benefited without actually doing something yourself.
    If you really do feel the way you do, you would immediately start giving your assets and possessions to those you've oppressed by just being a "White" boy, or taking a long walk on a short pier. Prove it that your sorry about all the damage your skin color has caused and you benefitted unjustly.

    Can thank racism growth in America because of the news coverage everyone sees on the television daily.. Black on white crime, White cop on black thug slayings, rioting, Islamic terrorism globally, etc..

    Also there is a growing hatred in the world today with the growth of radical Islam as they hate everyone outside their own faith especially... That's global.... Unemployment, lack of education and desperation all helps with the growth of racism, crime and hatred also..

    Devil is on the loose these days..

    If you really do feel the way you do, you would immediately start giving your assets and possessions to those you've oppressed by just being a "White" boy, or taking a long walk on a short pier. Prove it that your sorry about all the damage your skin color has caused and you benefited unjustly.
    I agree

    Libertarians are disproportional White whilst Latinos lean heavily towards socialism.

    If the demographics were the same Romney would have won by a wider margin than Reagan.

    America will become a socialist country if Whites don't remain a majority.

    Pretending demographics don't matter is foolish, the Democrats gloat that the changing demographics will allow them to implement social change.

    Don't be a coward.

    The one thing I failed to see in this thread is drugs. The hard shit. The shit that will destroy your life and kill you.

    Not an inner city thing anymore. More and more well to do families are dealing with their children hooked on crack
    and heroin.

    Drug dealing is an economy in the inner cities. With it come violence for territory. Violence to get money for
    a fix. When there's no money in the inner cities, the suburbs are prime for crime. How many well to do kids
    are stealing from their parents for a fix?

    I have direct dealings and know people affected and died. Even know of dealers.

    Don't know if we are in a space/ time configuration, but the world is getting more violent by the day.
    From my observations, seems the lower IQ'd people are the most affected. From the Arab spring,
    BLM and protests against Trump.

    Yep black tar heroin and meth are the 2 most life destroying drugs in America today. Crack is bad as well... Cocaine and meth you can over come and survive from a little easier then the heroin. Meth and Crack rot your teeth out too..

    Trump wants to fight drug trafficing and I think that's a great idea.. Hard drugs lead to death and crime, absolutely ruins young lives... Can also take decades off your life in a blink of eye once hooked and then by the time you go clean.. Your left wondering what happen and how would my life be different if I never touched it... It controls your mind and it's all you think about is your next high and you'll do anything to get it. Turn to crime, prostitution in a hurry because you can't hold a job when hooked and make money.....

    I also know people that have been on them all and either went clean or died, never good.... A plague for sure in America.. Especially the Heroin drug..

    I'm in favor of locking up the users, the jail time will keep them clean.. Court order rehab while jailed is a good idea as well.. Don't make it a felony though.. Hard to get a job after going clean with a felony drug charge on your criminal record..

    My point was that I am a lucky man. Mostly kind, mostly smart, mostly cool.

    Some of your words you might consider stuffing back up your ass though.
