I'm going to sum up my opinion of your position PI. You seem to basically believe that the views on race of the soviet union represented some sort of cultural perfection in how we ought to view race. You treat essentially any deviation from that, particular any deviation that makes you feel uncomfortable, as a deviation from a correct view.
However there are a couple of issues with your approach, much less your premises.
There is no such thing as a culturally perfect view and almost certainly never will be. There is no outside unbiased referee that can tell us when we have correctly dealt with racial issues. We all have to realize that when we take positions on what the correct racial relations should be that we are doing so from within the cultural and racial structures of our society and upbringing. We can strive to understand how that effects how we see things but we can never completely escape it. The imaginary ideal of a person who somehow transcends the limitations of humanity to overcome all racial biases is simply unachievable.
This doesn't of course mean that we cant or shouldn't try to deal with the issue and work things out, we just have to be self aware enough to know that declaring a correct relationship and sticking to it above all else is just silly.
Another issue I have is that so many of your positions seem to be built from a fundamental issue that most people face. Which is the feeling that you are expected to feel guilt for systemic and historical relations. This is super common, but I think not how you should take ideas like systematic racism and historical racism. While we should all evaluate what we do without thinking because of unconcious biases and expectations we've developed that doesn't mean that you should feel deeply guilty for this unless you entirely reject responsibility for trying to improve.
A lot of what I read from you seems to be a sort of wonderland version of what most people want to talk about when discussing race that you get from following the types of people with invested ideological interest in opposing social change and who take some crazy guy off the street or take someone out of context and then throw up overhyped clickbait videos and articles that create a false view of what they meant or what most people want.
For instance this
"You cannot talk, white man, because your ancestors enslaved my people"
I have worked in some quite liberal groups and know a good number of BLM people and have never heard any of them express this sort of sentiment. The only time I've even seen something close is when some right wing person gets confrontational because the person they were talking to didn't want to discuss racial issues with someone. You are of course not entitled to other peoples time, but many are actually quite willing to discuss racial issues openly, and be dissagreed with on general points (though people usually don't like it when you try to explain their personal experiences to them i.e. "they probably meant they didn't see you as black in a nice way" or something like that.)
Nobody I have ever known no matter how far left on the issue has ever told me or anyone I cannot discuss the issue and cannot have an opinion just because I'm white or what my ancestors did.
Now this line.
"Oh dear, another white male complaining about how oppressed he is! (sarcasm)"
I have heard this before, and it is generally in moments of frustration, but always preceded by one side in the discussion drawing a false equivalence between police shootings and affirmative action. You are more than free to discuss affirmative action, and some will even agree that it's not the greatest thing in the world and believe it just ends up being tokenism, but trying to attack their position on police violence by complaining about afirmative action or how you feel that some people are mean to you sometimes is not only infuriating but also not an argument.
It is an American problem. Sadly this American mental disease has infected the rest of the world. Americans, because of their hyper-racialised history view everything in terms of racial hierachy.
This is a very odd thing to think. Hyper-racialised politics are incredibly common in a great many more societies than in the US and preceded the existence of the US by centuries.
This means that whites are always imagined as historical oppressors and always the essential ruling class, in any country.
Systemic racism is about pretty well established facts like how when studying two identical resumes which are completely the same except one has a white name and one has a black name the one with a black name will recieve 50% fewer callbacks for an interview.
The results show significant discrimination against African-American names: White names receive 50 percent more callbacks for interviews. We also find that race affects the benefits of a better resume. For White names, a higher quality resume elicits 30 percent more callbacks whereas for African Americans, it elicits a far smaller increase.http://www.nber.org/papers/w9873
This makes it harder for blacks to get a job, and makes them poorer. This is a systematic problem, based around race, which hurts black people. What would that be if not systematic racism? No one argues that the employers are conciously choosing to do this, it just happens because of sub-conscious perceptions we have of black people that we cannot fix without confronting them.
Whites aren't imagined as a deliberately oppressive ruling class, we are understood as we are. the product of historical forces and social upbringings that hurt black people not because white people want to or try to but because we blithely or angrily ignore the problems and resist any social change.
Obviously anyone with any sort of intelligence and grounding in the realities of the world will know that a person's ethnicity and religion do not determine their character or value.
This simply isn't true and I don't know why you would think this unless you were a libertarian. We are products of our cultures and society not atomized individuals that wake up one day and conciously decide what all our beliefs and biases are going to be.
However the American system did not traditionally recognise this fact and denied the humanity of it's black citizens.
It's only until extraordinarily recently in human history that the idea that all humans were equally valuable or inherently equal in any way was an idea that wouldn't get you laughed at. It's actually an astonishingly liberal cultural value for you to believe so ardently.
As a result of this historical oppression the notion of a perennial white ruling class and a black labouring class has been psychologically embedded into the American popular consciousness.
Just to reiterate this sort of racial history is by no means a purely american phenomenon. And it isn't popular consciousness that it's embedded in, it's our social structures and subtle biases of our cultures.
Therefore all historic narratives are framed in the context of this particular history. The struggles of white Americans are not recognised as legitimate because of the deep sense of this historic racial-class divisions which exists in your country.
You need to accept that our pasts shape our present and we must consciously work to root out those biases. It's not "narrative" when it's a measurable effect in society.
Also, to go back to how the people in BLM I have know have responded to the argument about poor white people suffering. They certainly agree that it's true, a poor white person is worse off than a rich black person. Their point however is that a poor black person is worse off than a poor white person just by virtue of their race and how it effects them. There is this weird idea that there can be no systemic racism because not every single white person is richer than every single black person and that is just silly and shows a sort of lack of understanding of what systematic racism means.
Europe will only be free when the global south is free and when Europeans recognise the total anthropological equality of mankind.
This is extraordinarily middle class. You can bandy about any vague ideal and nod your head to it with everyone else. However it wont change anything to simply say this. On the one hand you think accepting this very fine ideal will fix everything but then turn around and rage against anyone doing any actual change to society to actually fix anything. You act like the ideal is enough to make change and it isn't. When I can go study the incarceration rates of whites and blacks for marajuana use and find that blacks are more likely to go to prison even though both races use it at the same rate, yelling "BUT I HAVE A NICE IDEAL ABOUT EQUALITY SO DON'T YOU DARE TRY AND ACTUALLY CHANGE THE SYSTEM!" then you are using that ideal as a weapon to defeat any practical implementation of it.
Or we choose to be cucks.
this is the most far right post anyone could ever write.However, most people will not understand it and write it off as leftist drivel.
It is neither far-right or leftest drivel. Your entire post could be written by any centrist liberal in the united state or Europe. You are a text book example of a cultural liberal in many ways.
A thoughtful person will understand it, though.
It would be sad to see you accuse anyone who disagrees with you of not being a thoughtful person.
