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.

    It made me sad to hear how the officers really are separate from the communities they patrol. It means they can't see the pain of the people they are supposed to protect and they have not dug deeper into the system they upkeep. I was glad to hear that if the funding was to go to other programs at least some of them would benefit from it by having some things lifted off their shoulders.

    The fracture in black families now has nothing to do with the passed. If a black father wanted to be there for his kids he would be it was his decision to leave, no “master” is forcing him to abandon his family. Take accountability for your own actions and stop blaming the system

    As a black man this shit doesn’t seem right. It’s kinda weird how a black man is with a white women on the right and the black women is with the white man on the left. Black Love needs to be promoted more, what’s the agenda why are there only showing White and Black couples this seems odd 💯

    A lot of people avoid interracial dating as it is taboo and causes unwanted differences.I am certain everyone has entertained the thought of being with someone from a different ethnic group as it is exciting.It lacks the boredom and predictability of sticking with your group. White people are the most open to interracial dating among all different ethnic groups.South Asians are the most opposed to this.

    Some have taken to quoting MLK on riots as the "the language of the unheard," of the oppressed and downtrodden. Let's be crystal clear then, as well, about his thoughts on the matter, as fully expressed in his "The Other America" speech from 1967. His entire point in the relevant section was that riots are counterproductive-but that we must recognize the grievances over injustice expressed in them, the violent conditions suffered that create them. Some seem to leave out the counterproductive bit, and others the injustice bit. Specifically, he said: “...riots are socially destructive and self-defeating. I'm still convinced that nonviolence is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom and justice. I feel that violence will only create more social problems than they will solve.”

    I definitely feel segregation is a major part of the problem, I grew up in a mixed race area in uk where Asian, Black and white were more or less in equal numbers and very integrated, race crime is very very rare there and myself and most of my friends I grew up with have mixed race relatives, it’s just normal, it’s harder for me to try understand how people aren’t integrated, I couldn’t imagine us growing up apart or being purposely separated, that’s a depressing thought, we would have missed out on so much

    These conversations are well needed but in all actuality history is known to repeat itself. It’s rooted so deep inside of individuals ( Hate and sinful behavior) that’s biblically written. Ok reach one teach one but that one just may not be able to reach his counterparts. WS is the root of all of this. Trying to have these people and I truly mean these men to hold a honest and truthful conversation speak on what’s said behind closed doors. Black folks have black conversations about white police. White police have white conversations about black people. No way in hell this will be exactly spoke on in true honesty in one hour. Which I know it’s a start. The capitol was attacked by low key officers / business men / doctors / lawyers etc. WS will never stop you actually think all those officers sitting around are good officers if so I’m being just judgmental. All my black friends and family members are not all great people but at least I know that. We all know the truth all those officers sitting in the background to me was a prop. The didn’t get to speak etc so why were they there. Come on bruh you can do better then this.

    To defend the idea of rioting is to condone the death of rioters. I, who oppress none, will accept none of the blame for those who have. Those who try to inflict on me the punishment due another will find that I too am a full person. I too deserve what I have earned. I too, matter. I will defend with word and action unto the utmost. If that means that to save my life or my property that I must use lethal force, then with grief and anger at those who foment riot, I will do so.

    This was very good, mind-opening, and I wish it was longer. The problem is we aren’t seeing the things being preached. If these are the “good” cops we speak about, we need to start seeing them speak up and speak out against the so called “bad” ones. We are all human first. Human first people! If we cared about each other more, we could solve a lot more problems in society and bridge the gap (economic, psychological, etc.) between the obvious truths. It’s a struggle between the power and the power-less. The Greed vs. Humility Save the planet Humans! 🌎

    I really appreciate Matthew for wanting to speak to you. A privileged white man wanting to understand someone else’s point of view. That’s all we need a white male im sorry to say they are top tier in our community if they stand beside us then there is no fight. All anyone really wants is love and peace but we have to acknowledge people’s struggles and realize all of the privileges we have as individuals. That doesn’t mean that we are all equals. We may have the privilege of being able to walk into a store without being bothered or talked to. Yesterday was the first day in my life I was stalked by a cvs worker the whole time i was in the store. She kept on asking if I needed help and stared at me the whole time she stopped stocking a shelf just to watch me for 20 minutes! She kept on saying I can hold that in the front for you Until you’re done shopping. She wasn’t checking anyone out she let them all use the self check out but she made sure to help me. It would be nice if she was just really good at customer service but that definitely wasn’t the vibe. I couldnt image dealing with that everyday. Being stalked because they think I’m sketchy no no i would go crazy or start freaking out on these nosey ass people! Just because things don’t happen to you does not mean it doesn’t happen. We all matter!!! If we stop this race agenda we call all move forward but we have to rebreak the bones that didn’t heal correctly!

    It has been said that African Americans are less likely to get therapy and get diagnosed with mental health conditions. Really, I think that the division of the African American family could have to do with a lack of mental health treatment in the face of environmental impacts on mental health and generational trauma. A lack of mental health treatment effects our economy A LOT because early intervention effects the trajectory of someone’s entire life… the basis of a healthy economy are healthy individuals right? Sure, it’s possible for people to pull themselves out of generational poverty, over come obstacles, move to better neighborhoods… but this whole “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” thing is absolutely ableist. You are not going to overcome what you were born into if the extra weight of depression is sucking all of the energy out of you. Mental health isn’t a choice unless you have the option to treat it. If reparations are to be paid, would throwing a bucks out be justice enough? Yeah right, more like a bandaid for a broken leg. I think that a well rounded “generational recovery” program with all bases covered is more honorable and just.. one with more than just education grants, but also therapy, home loans, business loans and living wages. A message from the disabled community to the African American community … the foundation of our platform is we believe that a lack of accommodation is inequality, some of us think that this can be applied to the African American community also.

    We need to encourage more black people to become cops. We need more programs that put cops in the black communities doing events like a spring or fall fair that cops host with lots of fun activities for the kids, a community cleanup like cops helping to pick up trash for a day, have the cops come out and do a fingerprint & photo of the kids one day to give parents in case heaven forbid something happens and a parent needs some identification of that child but as a positive event and give the kids a surprise like candy etc for getting it done, hand out coloring books that educate kids on how to call 911 and when they might need to call and reasons you don’t call, have a career day in their community where cops come out and talk to the kids and youth that are interested about how to become a cop, have a cop education day where you tell them what all you have to go thru to become one but what all your different jobs are once you become one & give them different circumstances that come up and let them see how they would handle them but then tell them how you are taught to handle each one along with the laws you have to obey and let them ask questions, etc. There are so many ways they can get involved with these kids. Also there needs to be a way that black, white, Asian, Hispanic, etc. people can call and report an incidence that wasn’t handled correctly or an officer that is causing a problem, is just a bully, has anger issues, etc. where it will be taken seriously and someone will look into it. That will probably require a person or persons that are dedicated to taking those calls and someone who is trained to investigate those situations or persons that can decide how it needs to be handled. There will always be those people who complain regardless of how things go. That’s why they have body cameras now. But at least we would have people that could view those recordings that are reported to see if they require a response. There also needs to be someone over that person in the instance that that person doesn’t see an issue but several people that were involved in the circumstance say it needs to be investigated so that it can get a fair and second opinion. What one person sees isn’t a big deal another might think it is. And these 2 people don’t need to work side by side everyday so that a second opinion cannot be influenced by what the initial reviewer thinks. Then depending on what one or the other deems incorrectly handled, poor attitude, etc. it can be investigated and proper correction or punishment taken. But the public needs to be able to report those issues or cops that aren’t up to standards in order to put a stop to all of this. Also, our media needs to be held accountable for what they report on. Yes we need freedom of speech but for every negative story they put out they should be required to put out a positive one that’s taken place. All the good things that happen in our country rarely get the attention they deserve. Honestly, I don’t watch the National news at all. I skim the highlights on the internet in print occasionally. I will watch our local weather and the actual news once or twice a week. Otherwise, I just look at our local weather app daily. I get so depressed watching the news that it’s not worth my mental health. All the bad I see going on in the news I rarely see happening around me. I truly think it’s not as bad as they make it out to be. I’m not talking about killings. I live in the south and we are supposed to be the worst about being racist. But I just don’t see it like they portray it. I was raised to know that I’m no better than anyone else and they are no better than me. My parents never used any derogatory words around me & my sister. They didn’t allow anyone else around us to talk that way either. I was taught to love everyone. And that’s the way I raise my children. If as a whole we would all raise our children to love everyone no matter their skin color, wether they have money or not, no matter what they have or don’t have, etc. we wouldn’t have these problems. I was raised and I taught my kids that it doesn’t matter what anyone looks like. You have to get to know someone before you decide if you like that person or not. It’s what’s on the inside and what’s in their heart that matters. If I say someone is ugly I mean they have an ugly heart. We also have to protect our eyes, ears, and hearts from those that are ugly. If we hear, see, and are exposed to ugliness daily we get used to it and are more likely to do those ugly things ourselves. Surround yourselves with positive good people that you look up to and want to be like and they will rub off on you as well. I pray one day our country can heal from this ugliness and learn to love one another.

    I think with a black officer it can go two different ways. 1) “I’m black and the officer is black.” “Good I have nothing to worry about.” Due to minorities coming together in majority white spaces. Or 2) “is he/she showing out for the white cops?” (Ex. In Straight outta Compton scene) so it can go both ways when I see a black police officer.
