There is nothing “black” about poverty, police brutality, drugs, homelessness, crime, violence, etc..those things are human and any human can understand them and humans together can fight them as long as they don’t get played into thinking that those things that are part of the global human experience and human sociological organization and action are somehow caused by someone’s skin color. The greatest tool of the racist is his or her argument that skin color CAUSES sociological phenomena rather than the bad acts of people and social structures which have the ability to do otherwise. Why? Because if you are dumb enough to treat “race” as a cause rather than a justification, you cannot solve any social problems. People cannot change their skin, but they can change their conscious immoral acts or be made to do so by social and political organizational action or by the spiritual force of conscience.
