Is Advocating the Preservation of Your Own Culture Really So Wrong?

When we integrated, we gave up our communities for a seat at their table. If we mix with every other race, who will tell our stories, preserve our culture and traditions? Whoever gets it’ gets it. Whoever doesn’t, doesn’t.

    First I just want to say I am an American, so I can’t be written off as some “international” person who isn’t familiar with the racial struggles in this country. There is nothing wrong with advocating for preservation of your race, but at the same time, this is exactly what the white nationalists promote for the white race. Is that OK with you? You are almost advocating for miscegenation laws in these articles. If a white person says they are against race mixing, the world would view them as racist, but you think you can have the exact same ideology and just be considered loyal? That makes zero sense…I thought the point of integration was for people to be seen as just that…PEOPLE and not in binary black and white only. I think it is dangerous for anyone, of any color, to boil people down to their race only. It completely erases what really binds us – humanity. So a black person you know nothing about, can’t marry a white person you know nothing about, because of history? That just seems so backwards and close-minded. I get your point of view, but I strongly disagree. You should do what you want to do in your own life, but you shouldn’t promote these thoughts on such large platforms. “I note the obvious differences between each sort and type, but we are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike…”

      I appreciate your well thought out and said comment. I can accept that we disagree. I wouldn’t have any problem with a white persin saying it. Only if they wanted to infringe on My rights to live with equal peace and resources. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, it was a little wordy ? Melony
