From [HERE] Patricia Carroll, the CNN camerawoman who was assaulted with peanuts at the Republican National Convention earlier this week says “I hate that it happened, but I’m not surprised at all,” according to Richard Prince’s Journal-isms blog. After they threw nuts at her they said, 'This is how we feed animals.' "Multiple witnesses observed the exchange. [MORE]
Carroll, 34, said that as an Alabama native, she was not surprised. “This is Florida, and I’m from the Deep South,” she said. “You come to places like this, you can count the black people on your hand. They see us doing things they don’t think I should do.”
“I can’t change these people’s hearts and minds,” Carroll told Journal-isms. “No, it doesn’t feel good. But I know who I am. I’m a proud black woman. A lot of black people are upset. This should be a wake-up call to black people… . People were living in euphoria for a while. People think we’re gone further than we have.”
The Wake Up Call
Such a reaction is an intelligent reaction to racism. This reaction is not protesting, outrage, crying, begging, singing or violent. And those reactions cause stress, strokes and incarceration among other things and/or rarely solve problems.
It is intelligent to expect racism from white people (Republicans or Democrats) everyday. Racism is white supremacy. It is a a behavioral system for the survival of White people. Whites are overwhelmingly outnumbered on this planet which is 90% non-white (and steadily shrinking through assimilation with non-whites). This small collection of genetically recessive Whites are in great apprehension of losing their control over non-whites, all over the globe. Racism is not primarily based on ignorance or hate - it is based on white people's survival. Do you really believe, Romney, Rove, Cheney and the RNC delegates are all ignorant and just in need of the proper information to liberate their thinking about non-whites or that they are basketcases in an emotional state of racism? Not likely- racism is a strategy.
White supremacy domination and oppression of all non-white people is essential for global white genetic survival. As Dr. Welsing has said, "Black people [must] finally understand that White people are playing a White survival game [which] has to inferiorize the functioning of Black and other people of color." Since whites practice racism to survive genetically - you should expect it, all the time.[MORE] Like Carroll, you should be prepared for it so then there will be no sleepless nights, anger, stress or jail. And you can plan accordingly for the next move - (solutions) counter racism. If white people you encounter happen to not be racist - be pleasantly surprised.
For the sake of Black mental health and for Black intelligence, all people of color must understand the dynamics of racism/white supremacy, what it is and how it works, so that they can have an appropriate, self-respecting response to racism/ white supremacy. Dr. Francis Cress Welsing states that, 'once the collective people (non-white), understand this fundamental issue (racism/ white supremacy), the ultimate organizing of all the appropriate behaviors necessary to neutralize this great injustice of the white supremacy system, it will only be a matter of time.'

Moral Suasion = for what? Wake Up she said.
Another thing Carrol said about the incident was “I can’t change these people’s hearts and minds.” She is right. Why try? The treatment of Blacks by whites throughout history can best be described as psychopathic. That is, in their relationships with Blacks, whites are psychopaths. Attempts at moral suasion are a waste of time and lead to mental stress - not liberation.
As stated by Dr. Bobby Wright, the psychopath is an individual who is constantly in conflict with other persons or groups. He is unable to experience guilt, is completely selfish and callous, and has a total disregard for the rights of others. Behavioral scientists generally agree that the outstanding characteristics of the psychopathic personality are the almost complete absence of ethical or moral development and an almost total disregard for appropriate patterns of behavior. Psychopaths know the difference between right and wrong but simply ignore the concept of right and wrong. By ignoring this trait in the White race (the lack of ethical and moral development) Blacks have made and are still making a tragic mistake in basing the worldwide Black liberation movement or black politics on moral suasion. It is pathological for Blacks to keep attempting to use moral suasion on a people who have no morality where race is the variable.' [MORE]
Racism is like rain, if you are prepared for it you may still get wet but you will not be surprised by it -- expect it and plan accordingly.
People who classify themselves as White, who wish to be taken seriously, and who are righteous and responsible, will only talk about ending White Supremacy (Racism) and replacing it with Justice. [MORE]
