Tim Wise -"Imagine if the Tea Party Was Black"

Cholly ·
Tim Wise - Anti-Racist Activist Let’s play a game, shall we? The name of the game is called “Imagine.” The way it’s played is simple: we’ll envision recent happenings in the news, but then change them up a bit. Instead of envisioning white people as the main actors in the scenes we’ll conjure - the ones who are driving the action - we’ll envision black folks or other people of color instead. The object of the game is to imagine the public reaction to the events or incidents, if the main...

And why Michael Eric Dyson was there is probably because he's an outspoken critic of racism in America, but, I think that our civil rights leaders and activists need to start thinking twice as to who they will speak for, at least until we hear apologies and denunciation of for/of all the racism toward Black people coming from the particular group(s).

I'm gonna say this, I think it goes to show how violent white people are.
