Why do black people feel that white people want to ‘keep them down’ ?

I often hear black people say, usually with a lighthearted smile, that the ‘white man is keeping the black man down’.

To me this is interesting because:

  • I, personally, have never met a white person who has expressed a desire to keep black people down;
  • and even if a white person did want to keep black people down, it is highly unlikely that they are actually in an authoritative position to do so anyway ( after all, probably 99% of white people are simply workers themselves );
  • and what exactly would a white person gain? Is it not true that for any position that is denied to a black person there will inevitably be someone else trying to acquire that same position?

I make this point not to be inflammatory, but because I just think that it is an interesting point. Of course now with Obama being elected ( which includes my vote ), hopefully this point is outdated.

  1. Black people say this because being a “victim” is a very powerful part of their identity. I say “powerful” because playing the victim card is a way to control other people. They don’t really think whites keep them down, because it is the white-created government that has protected them. But they can’t release the victim role because it comes with many benefits they wouldn’t get if they actually took responsibility for themselves. So, if they fail, or don’t get the job, or have any problems at all, it’s not the person in the mirror, it’s the white people “keeping them down”. This is a way to CONTROL white people. They like it. It’s also a way to get sex from white women–guilt-trip them into sex by pulling the black victim card. The whole world has discovered the way to control white people of European/Christian ancestry is to make them feel guilty, and they will do anything to try to make things better–even for false accusations made against their ancestors thousands of years ago. If you want to control white people, make them feel guilty. If you want power over the entire white race, blame them and pretend you are a victim. Whites are 200,000 times (yes 200,000 times) as likely to be victims of interracial rape by blacks than the other way around–but blacks are presented as the victims. Pretty damned clever, eh? They can get all the sex they want from white women in any way they can get it, and blacks are still the victims. If I were black, I wouldn’t give up being a “victim” because that’s the most powerful role there ever was in these times.
