Time For Killing The Whiteman

Time for killing the Whiteman is most likely a thought that has crossed the minds of many people of colour. Disturbing to even voice a thought like this. Yet we have all thought about it one time or another.  As absurd as it sounds to want a certain group killed, we do hear many thoughts like this everyday. In the various media you will hear people wanting Women, the LGBTQ, Blacks, Indians, Muslims and various other groups not considered part of the main stream to be killed or hurt, to locked up, to be locked out, to go home, to suffer, to end.

It is an ugly absurd thing to voice. Yet it is there in many media voices stating things like Kill so and so. I would not want to say it... at least now in my older years. A young me would be voicing all sorts of things against all sorts of folk. I know people of different backgrounds. Some are pretty decent folk and others, well some are arseholes. Still it is  one thing to say you don't like someone but it is another thing to want them killed. People can be so cruel.

There is so much hate going on right now it is unreal.  I guess the hate has always been there. Still it is alarming to see it on display on a daily basis. The United States is front and center with their hate of anyone not White.  Britain showed their hate with the refugee community. The media is showing its hate or its complacency in their actions.

There is a big gathering of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in South Dakota. They are trying to stop a wrong. They are voicing their disapproval of an oil pipeline. The pipeline is using the police and private security to assault the protectors (they call themselves protectors of the water while police call them protesters).

People are upset at the Indigenous for trying to stop the Pipe line. People say its jobs. The Indigenous are looking for protection of the future. Lot of voices and lot of different views.

In other areas the Black population is under attack by the Police. While there are some who will say the Black person in each incident deserved what they got, like getting shot by police, others question why? In one instance a White supremacist ran down and killed a young Black man.  Main stream media in its complacency is not reporting a story like this.

The tension between White society and people of colour is rising and its not localized to one city town or even country.

The United States is involved in an air strike campaign that is no doubt causing unimaginable destruction and death. The amount of refugees in different parts of the world are causing mainly White populated countries to  strike out. Ethnic communities are also attacking indiscriminately in those mainly White communities. So the time for killing is certainly upon us.

I think its time. Time for us to really try and have a little understanding. Even practice some kindness. Its a hard call because we are frustrated even a little scared but mostly angry at what is happening.

I get angry when I see a presidential candidate promote hate and is cheered on for the hate. I get angry when the rich faceless corporations do not consider life only profit and greed.

Still I don't want to start thinking of killing the Whiteman or the faceless. I don't call for "Karma" on them either. Still I bet when you are so angry, so frustrated at some of the ugliness in the world you may for a second or a moment want someone to die or be killed.

Like many I voice to my family my friends and even to strangers about how ugly the hate is.

I wonder how many out there really want someone to be killed? Regardless of background.

  1. You just wait till a black man robs you then you will know why they are not liked and are being slaughtered by police and by each other.

    The white man is becoming a minority all you see in winipeg now is asians hindus, exploding muzlims, a LOT of brown people.

    Canada is being overrun by refugee immigrants of ALL types now, not just white trash.

  2. But didn't White folk start off as refugees or immigrants as well.
    In any case Tolerance is a pretty good thing to have.
    Crime can occur in any group.
