Re: BART cop never committed murder

No, I am not familiar with the concept of white privilege. I did not know that their was such a thing.

I do know that east of the Hudson/Potomac Rivers very few people think in terms of race. I certainly do not think of myself as "white", and I have no reason to think that I am better than any black man or out here Indian (Native American) as the case may be. Of those that I know, I actually consider them to be better than me.

Dr. Williams has TWO doctorates, I don't have any. Most of the physicians that I visit are of a different race. I have never seen myself as better than these.

Those around here that I look down upon based solely on appearance and first impression are white. And I am usually wrong about those people as well.

Do I believe racism exists. Yes, unfortunately it does. Do I think that black people in general read more into race than they should? Yes I do. If I were black, maybe I would too. American Indians do not seem to worry about their race. We have a large Asian Indian population, they do not seem to worry about their race. We have more Muslims than Jews in Bismarck, but no one seems to worry about their religion. (The first mosque in the United States was in North Dakota).

Do I have any answers, no I do not, But is does seem to me that some blacks (by no means a large number) seem to project their issues onto others. Heck, I know that I project my issues onto others, but race is not one of these.
