I don't agree with that language either. It has gone too far the other way.
Everything is pulling people away from each other and building barriers. Yes, white people have advantages but the people who benefit from those advantages are not who caused them. Attacking those people causes them to be in a default position of defense. It is counter-productive and has the result of pushing some people into places they would not normally be. Don't turn potential allies into foes.
That being said, progress has been made. One example is affirmative action which, regardless of how it seems on paper, is a good and just thing. This is because for years and years people of color were passed over for jobs based on race. On paper, giving preference to or mandating a certain number of people from a certain race seems like preferential treatment. But this is just a way to codify a balance to overcome racism that still obviously exists that prevents qualified people from being given opportunities they deserve.
Now there is the problem that progress is not being made fast enough. That's a hard problem to fix but it is being made even harder by all of the divisiveness.
The issues with the police have been ongoing for years and must be addressed nationally. Watching TV reports and listening to radio reports decades old and realizing they could be played today with some minor updates is sickening. However, the full story of this in terms of recent developments is very nuanced. Some people will look as these and say Floyd was high and acting erratic and Blake was going into his car with passengers while disobeying orders while people of color and a good percentage of white people will look at these as part of a bigger problem that includes Breonna Taylor and Philando Castile that must be addressed. It's hard for the two sides to find common ground there.
My personal opinion, if anyone cares, is that there IS a problem. Choke holds and anything that restricts breathing that could result in death should be banned even if it means that the person may struggle a it more. There needs to be a sustained effort to reform policing that starts with drug reform. There needs to be accountability at a national level with regions that are completely independent from the police forces that they investigate. Implied immunity must go. The original idea for it made sense but it has been so bastardized that it can't be fixed. Race based policing should obviously be addressed. Oh, and I still thought "Hey, they would have shot me if I acted like Blake." after watching that video.
Anyway, that was a lot of typing and there is no way I can get my beliefs across in a post. I'm a guy from a small town in Tennessee who grew up in church that turned out to be really liberal, travelled the world extensively, campaigned for Obama, haven't dated a white girl in a decade, has mostly friends who look nothing like me, and still finds middle-ground with my super-conservative, gun-toting, motorcycle driving, Trump loving dad and his even more Trump loving (and the sweetest lady you will ever meet) wife.
