Why are African-Americans the Only Minority Group That Complain

You don't see middle eastern kids (or any brown color skin from Asia like Indians) cry because ignorant white kids call them terrorist in a derogatory way. You don't see Mexican kids (the largest minority group) cry because ignorant white kids call them illegals even if they are not. You don't see oriental kids cry because ignorant white kids call them "chinks" or make fun of their culture. Only blacks complain. Only blacks get the media attention. If a whole group of white kids at school make fun of a single black kid for being black, it is definitely going to be on CNN. But, if a group of white kids make fun of a middle eastern kid for being a terrorist (which is like calling a black person a slave for no reason whatsoever), no one cares. Blacks also think they are the only minority group. They say oh it's a black-white thing. No, it's not. All in all, there are so many other minority groups out there that calling it just a black-and white thing is ignorant. Black people say they are constantly stereotyped, but they don't really have any clue on what other minority groups are stereotyped as, and I bet you many of them have the same stereotypes about other groups. They don't realize that other minority groups also face constant stereotypes. They don't realize that brown kids get stopped at airline security for no reason other than their skin color, they don't realize that Mexicans get just as much police attention as them. They just stick to their own little world saying it only happens to them. BS. They say well the white people made us slaves. Well, white people made practically every minority group slaves at one point. If America was to go and bomb Africa and start a war there, black people here will go nuts and start riots everywhere. Middle eastern people say very minimal here (although there may be a protest here or there). They don't realize that white people tried to impose their culture onto other minority groups also. They also don't realize that they are the only group who has it hard. I live in New York City. There are so many other minority groups that come from nothing but work hard and don't complain. But here they are; complaining as if they are the only one. Just stop and realize you are not the only one and that other minority groups are fighting the same fight as you are for equality, but they aren't being straight up assholes like you starting riots.

  • Damn bro, the problem with what you're saying is that it isn't an absolute statement, none of it is. Please respond. I just want you to know that although some black people feel that way, a lot don't. Please man this type of thinking actually makes me sad. The best position to take on race is to remove it from the equation. Just think of black vs white vs brown vs yellow as a human struggle, not as a racial struggle. It's just humans doing the best they can to be free from certain social/political shackles. Although there may be flaws in the way they think, the wise people (who's ranks you pretend to sit with) understand this, and just try and focus on the bigger issue.

    • Cause If a whole group of black kids at school make fun of a single white kid for being white, it is definitely going to be Jail time or a police shooting :D

    • 1. A mind is such a terrible thing to waste. 2. Yes, those other minority groups DO complain about prejudice---ever heard of the expression "DWB....Driving while Brown"? They just don't complain about it to WHITE people. They don't, because they've largely figured out that doing so is a waste of time....and most immigrant groups (other than Hispanics) generally come here with enough education and reasources that they can afford to really NOT CARE whether you like them or not. 3. What makes AAs and Native Americans different is that we are the two groups upon whose BACKS this nation was founded. Despite its rhetoric about "freedom" and "equality", the economic foundation of this nation was built upon the murder and economic exploitation of AAs and Native American. Worse still...in order to preserve a unequal distribution of power...we are still systematically mistreated. What is going on in Missouri right now is the by-product of that historic, systematic, and endemic mistreatment. If we had the resources...we'd do as other minority groups have done. WE JUST IGNORE YOUR IGNORANCE AND MOVE ON. But the simple fact of the matter is that we DON"T....because our entire cultural and economic system has been dedicated to making sure we don't...and that we WON"T ever. So our only choices are to continue to suffer in silence. Or demand that the abuse stop.

      • Other groups complain but they don't get the attention African Americans. It's not African Americans were enslaved, could be killed and ra ped by whites without consequence, and are racistly treated by cops and the court system. They probably aren't the only ones either. I wouldn't be surprised if Hispanics got the same treatment. The problem is most whites don't even acknowledge these problems exist and are racist in ways they don't realize and take offense to be accused of being racist. The biggest problem is that even though we've made racism a terrible thing, most people still don't completely get what it is. Cliven Bundy is probably the best example. He said racist things and said he wasn't racist and only made himself look more racist while insisting he wasn't racist. Another time I saw a video of two KKK members insisting they weren't racist. It's one of the strangest things I've ever seen and shows how much plenty of racists lack self awareness.

      • Awesome... White guy takes all the blame... :l I don't remember doing any of those things to any one else but since I'm white it must be my responsibility to take the blame for what I didn't do! *sigh*

          [quote]Blacks also think they are the only minority group.

        • They aren't. Asians complain, Native Americans complain, and rightfully so. You just see more among the African-Americans because of the media. It makes better news and more of an uproar because of the history of the U.S., many people figuring "Slaves? Oh, black people!" not realizing that slaves were of multiple colors, not just of African descent.

        • It's because black people have more of a history with white people in America, white people haven't really abused any other race as they have to blacks.

        • Can I ask you a question? Are you slow? Does your brain have the ability to work? You clearly have very little knowledge and the knowledge you do have you probably got it from Fox news. You probably hate Obama because of the debt or some other bull shit. You can hate Obama but it's gotta be for the right reasons otherwise you're just a retard who doesn't have a say in politics. You're probably afraid of minorities as well. That's because you're a stereotyping ass hole.

            Did you know that because blacks in the United States are "the last to be hired and the first to be fired," have lower average levels of education, are disproportionately represented below the poverty level, and are discriminated against in most areas of social life, blacks more than whites experience low self-esteem and, consequently, have much higher suicide rates than whites. Well, did you? [spoiler]besauce research findings have proven them to be false :)[/spoiler]

              • But aren't you complaining by posting this? so you're basically complaining that they're complaining about being shot in Ferguson after they are down and choked in New York for simply being a minority. Prick.
