I'm not going to get into the situation that happened between the two because of the Confederate flag. The flag should have been taken down because everybody should live in a place where they can be equal and get along. .
Now, you have the Black Panthers and Ku Klux Klan. Of course I'm going to support the Black Panthers because I'm black, I love being black and I love the culture in which I come from. That's something I stand by. What I have a problem with is that we are separated because of a color, "Black Power" and "White Power".
We as blacks will get mad for a majority of whites being racist towards us because of what they assume about us. A lot these whites wouldn't think the way they do if it wasn't for how they were raised. In addition, a lot blacks wouldn't think all whites aren't at at ease because of us because of how we were raised and the things we were taught. There are many assumptions that we were told about each other to each other.
The moment we get upset about a white person's opinion towards us, we begin to hate them and the moment we have that hate is the moment we begin to be racist. We also give them a reason for them to think the way they do about us. We always have to react with violence destroying what we built. We can't preach about sticking together within the black community but being upset with another community. I don't agree with a lot of the things that have been going on but if we're going to spread love, wellness, togetherness, love etc. we have to let it be collectively.
