Lately, there have been a lot of discussion about race in the U.S. The liberals are blaming President Trump of creating an unhealthy environment diversity to exist together. But they are seeing things objectively, yes, there is a racism in U.S. but also the same thing is happening in every country. So maybe it’s not Trump allowing the racism but the society.
Dallas Cowboys player Dez Bryant came forward with a statement giving some insights on his thoughts about the race issue.
Here is his statement:
“First and foremost, I would like to say I do a great job of minding my own business, but it’s pressing on my heart to share my thoughts about white Americans and black Americans (racism).
I saw a person quote Charles Barkley when he said, “We as black people, we’re never going to be successful not because [of] you white people, but because of other black people.”
I’ve been [racially] profiled on numerous occasions, but not once has it influenced an ill feeling inside me about anyone outside of that issue. REAL SLAVERY is different from what’s going on in our world now. We all (every ethnicity) have the opportunity to lead by EXAMPLE.
Instead of making videos about the history of racism that get applause or people with influence merely doing things to post for social media, we should focus on individual accountability to be better as a whole.
I recently ran into a guy I grew up with who spent his adulthood dealing drugs. While we were catching up, he shared with me that he wished that he chose a different and better path. He said seeing my success was inspiring and that it encouraged him to do better with his life.
Real question: What is wrong with being sophisticated and black? Why do we associate those who choose the straight-and-narrow as not being “black enough?” Why was it that I was one of the first examples of success to my friend?
We focus hard on fighting the realities that exist instead of creating our own reality. The ones who came for us (Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X) paved a new path for us to follow. The struggles and hurt they endured created new life for us today.
It is not our job to carry the burden, but it is our job to lead by example.
Not that my opinion matters, I’m just sharing my thoughts.”
Apparently, this NFL player believes that the issue is not because of the leadership but because of the struggles of everyone. But sadly, the left doesn’t want to hear these kinds of statements.
It seems that liberals are forgetting that racism has always existed in the U.S., a long time before President Trump came. Some people are racist and there is little we can do about it.
