John, I noticed that you had a lot to criticize about my post, but there was no substance outside of the snarky remarks. If you have an actual argument to share, please do so.

Now, to the points you made: I agree that change would take generations, but to refer to my point, what wil…

Probably not? If you truly believe that this mural will cure any type of racism, you're lying to yourself. This is not a conversation that people want to have. They are either for it or against it, nobody is changing their mind. But that is not my point. My point is that this mural serves…

Congratulations, HMB, you've cured racism!!! Although, as a person of color (I am brown, family is from Mexico), I don't feel that this mural is inclusive in any way.

I really wish that the city council would deal with problems that actually exist in HMB, such as lack of affordable …

Work on what? You are making the assumption that I am against white people. Pointing out my experiences and the hypocrisy of some white people in no way means I’m against them. If you go back and reread my comments, you’ll see that I’ve pointed out that the current trendy actions from peo…

Was my statement a big of aN over generalization, probably. Was my statement racist, I’d say that’s a bit of a reach. I personally experienced that exact treatment as a child. I was walking through Amesport Landing to hop the fence to get to Cunha School. A guy living stopped me, asked me…

I remember that movie very well. Instead of celebrities and athletes blaming everything on “the man”, I wish they would echo that sentiment from the movie. Only we can control our future. I could’ve dropped out of school, gotten into drugs and gangs, etc., but I made the decision to stay …

Standing in a parking lot while holding “trendy” signs accomplishes nothing. The best thing these protestors can do is stop pretending that people of color are inferior to white people. This idea that we (I am a person of color) need your help only further pushes the subliminal message th…

Of course the whole country is not racist, I hope I did not imply that. Maybe my comment was a little too generalized, my point is that these people out there making a show out of their “support” will very likely do nothing beyond kneeling or what have you, which is fine by me. I’d rather…

Not sure how to respond to that. Allow me to reiterate, any people like me that want change should get out and do it ourselves. If we, as people of color, are too lazy to do it ourselves, then maybe we aren’t deserving of change.

As a person of color, I’m sick of this pandering. All these people claim to support this cause, but would be the first ones to call the police if they saw a person of color walking through their neighborhood at night. I don’t know about the other POC in this community, but I sure as heck …
