Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, is a safe place to have the uncomfortable conversations about race that many people have never been able to have. But enough is enough - I want to remove the barriers for why we’ve never had these conversations. I want to provide a free space for curious white people to answer the questions they’ve always had but have been too nervous to ask. Like, “How can I have white privilege if I’m not wealthy?” or “is racial profiling ok if black people tend to commit more crimes” and my personal favorite from a 19-year-old girl from rural Alabama named Amy who asked, “if black people can say the ‘N’ word, why can’t I?” And many, many more.

    Emmanuel Acho, you don't have to go all the way back to Slavery because after Slavery Jim Crow = discrimination prevented equal opportunity for blacks esp. black men. The lack of job opportunity for black men who were three times as likely to be the last hired and first fired plays a huge part in why black families fail. God is the only one who is going to level the playing field on into eternity. God views two kinds of people. The Saved and the Unsaved. Jesus Help US All.

    Police need to be trained just as well to undure stress and error correcting as the Marines and any other armed branch. They are specialists, and need to be trained as so. Psycologial training should be 100% paramount. No exception. They have a professional budget and need training at the same level. That being said, Portland defunded their police. Portland shortly after had shootings and gun violence increase over 200%.

    Thank you so much for your passion, expression, communication, heart and soul. Let's work toward a time when equity, access, and equality are truly understood and recognized. Today - 2/23/21 - as Native American woman, Congresswoman Deb Haaland, stood in front of the Senate in her hearing as a nominated Interior Secretary, she faced racially-toned questions from Senators. We have a LONG, LONG way to go.

    I'm a living example of 'not being color blind'. I grew up in a small white Oregon town. In high school, we would see a black person once or twice a year. Maybe three times, if we played a Portland school in football. It wasn't until I left for college in the '70's, that I got know black people. Fifty plus years later, I look back as I talk to old friends of mine who never left my home town, and see how they have become institutionally racist, by never really getting to know people of color. I'm lucky, in some aspects, since I was a little kid, I have always been interested in people from other places, people who were different, and learning about their lives and places. I never made a conscious decision to be interested; it just happened. I've learned and experienced a lot due to this curiosity. I truly feel lucky. Here's some words from an old fart, develop that curiosity, in yourself; you won't regret it.

    Thank you, Emmanuel, for taking a chance on us. Though I'm not in elevators much, anymore, when ever I'm in such a situation, I try to engage people, no matter their color, or anything else, even if it's only a hello. I truly hope it puts people at ease. We have to break down these barriers of fear, if we are to survive as a society.

    Maybe if the parent of these black kids didn't drill it into their heads that the cops are bad, they wouldn't be afraid of them and grow up with the attitude that the only reason for a cop to stop them was because they are black. 🤔

    I have a few questions. How many black people alive today have been directly affected by slavery? Why do we need a black history month, but not a Chinese history month, or Irish, or any other race history month? There weren't just blacks and whites building this country. How about the people who want to pull that "race card" take a quick look at themselves and judge their own thoughts and actions before doing the same to someone who they don't even know.

    "The initial fracture of the black home" ? Sorry, but slavery has nothing to do with absent fathers in 2020. And it wasn't an issue during Jim Crow era or segregation. The problem started in 60's. There's no reverse racism or reverse bullying. But a black man can be a bully and he can hate people just for having a different skin colour. Power & privilege ? Historically never had? But today black people can have power and privilege. Besides that is not the definition of racism. You don't need any power or privilege to hate someone just because of his skin colour.

    LOL Some of his stats are just wrong. Two parent black families in the 1960s were 74% Two parent black families in the 2020s are less than 30% This is not a result of slavery. If it was the results would be better today not worse. The problem is welfare. If you are a single mother you get welfare (money). If you are a two parent family you don`t get the welfare and you lose money.

    Finally!!! Why can’t we have more open and honest conversations? Rather than just trying to shut up white people, why not have open dialogues? That’s how we’re going to come out of this better. Not by automatically assuming all white people, all cops, etc. are racist pieces of s***. Let’s learn from each other. Not talking about it openly and truthfully won’t accomplish anything. White people need to listen to Black people’s perspectives; additionally, black people also need to listen to white people.

    My favorite failure was getting kicked out of my high school's choir. Throughout middle school, I was a real big choir/drama kid. I did all the musicals, I was in drama club, and I went and sang in competitions for my school's choir. Towards the end of 8th grade, I auditioned for my upcoming high school's prestige acapella choir and got in. However, by the time I started high school, the original choir teacher had retired and a new one came in. She wanted to re-audition everyone and I didn't make the cut with her. But because I didn't make the cut, I had a free period in my schedule and decided to take an IT Class, which taught me a lot about computers and filmmaking (mostly editing) and helped me achieve a lifelong dream of pursuing a career in media.

    The police didn't address any of the real issues... While I do believe there are isolated instances of police officers / Sheriff deputies with god complex issues... That doesn't excuse the overwhelming crimes committed by the black male living the "Thug Life" glorified by Hollywood and the media. Do some actual research on your own and you will see that police have issues with all races!!! Enough with the whoa is me crap! I highly doubt that is you speak to the officer with respect and do as you are told... your police/deputy interaction will go sideways... unless you actually committed the crime... imagine that.

    My ex was the most racist woman I've ever met, not because she was black but because she was from Atlanta, a mess of a person and her only identity was to insult white people first then Asians, Latinos and Jews at any given chance. This came out after she set her hooks in me of course. Later on she would openly bash me for being "privileged", "white" and ignorant although (apart from white) I am non of those things. Her family was very open and kind to me but I don't think she will ever see people as people, the damage was done by her own community and friends. It was sad to realize that she could never get past the skin thing. I was not allowed at certain shows or events with her because I'm white and that would damage her status in some circles, The damage done by white America runs deep and the scars are quite thick. I'm quite sure she would rebut these comments and sat that I deserved it for what white people have done. Coming from a Russian/Polish immigrant family I always found that quite amusing. It was a vastly different relationship than girlfriends in and from Africa and a far different community as any African would attest to. I lived in Cape Town for some years and was shocked when I came back and realized how badly whites and blacks treat each other in the U.S. Now THAT is scary. If people continue to spurn the effort to communicate and know each other with honest respect, all hope is lost. Regardless of color.
