Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you might have noticed that a lot of white people, mainly white men, are not happy with the state of America. From sea to shining sea, from coast to coast, across ideologies; a lot of white people are extremely angry about the changing America.
Of course this is nothing new and started long before one Barack Hussein Obama became the 44th President of the United States. This resentment started with the Civil Rights Act.
The passing of the Civil Rights Act was the signal that things were about to change in America. It was no longer acceptable to blatantly discriminate against people because of who they were. That's why Ronald Reagan’s “It's Morning in America” was such a hit and you will be hard pressed to find a white person that does not absolutely love Ronald Reagan. It harkened back to a time when people knew their place and white America was in complete control.
But those days are over now. The lie of the melting pot has been discredited. People who traditionally had no voice are now standing up and changing what it means to be American. Of course the white males that traditionally were in power are not happy about this change.
And it is not just conservatives and Republicans that feel this way either. There are plenty of white liberals that are every bit as racist as any KKK, hood wearing, Southern conservative. Over the past week I have seen liberals attack women with sexist behavior, call a civil rights icon an Uncle Tom, and a group of white women with no women of color present celebrate how diverse they were. I am not even mentioning two old white men running for president that are getting the overwhelming support of white males.
For generations non-white Americans have been told loud and clear that the white majority does not really consider them Americans. We are not considered conservatives, we are not considered progressives, we are not considered women, we are not considered part of the working class, and we are not considered intelligent. To the white majority we are just considered other.
For the white majority as long as they have a few colored faces in their spaces then it means that they can not possibly be racist. When I say a few, most of the time I mean one. As long as there is just one colored face, then they have achieve diversity. Doesn't matter if the color is African, Latino, Asian, or Native American.
Luckily for America there are enough white women that reject this hate and join with people of color in changing this America. See if you are a white woman that cares more about your intelligence than you do your sex appeal then you are not much use to white males especially if you are a woman that speaks your mind and speaks up for your rights.
The truth is that America is not changing but has changed. It changed years ago. The days where a white majority fought amongst themselves for the soul of the country are over. Today women and people of color are the decision makers. In spite of what white males want, the former minorities are changing America for the better.
These minority groups are now, slowly but surely, obtaining economic and academic power so in a few generations they will be equals on that front also. But if you think that the white majority is going to willingly leave their white fantasy world to face the realities of the world today you are sadly mistaken. We have seen many times that many of these sexist racists will reject change until their grave.
Instead they will try to control the narrative that they are still in control and will even find minorities that will tell them how fine and elegant their robes are but in the end they will just be walking around naked, fully exposed to a changing world.
