If I came across two Dutch Nazis discussing, I would not form my own opinion about the Dutch people as a whole based on just their opinions. So by making this extreme example maybe you can come to the conclusion that what two individuals are saying is not always a good reflection of all black people. Are those two voice representative of the collective? And perhaps since you don't live in the US it can be wise to listen in to more than just two persons who actually live here and not be so immediately dismissive. Yes they are black, but they are also well paid university professors, not exactly a typical and representative background. I think you should have considered that.Auryn wrote: ↑12 Jun 2020I've gotten a fair bit of my opinion about this topic from listening to these two guys discuss the incident and related matters. I've timestamped it where some of the comments on the events that lead up to the incident start. I feel they are basically expressing the same sentiment that I feel: "the cops don't just drag you out of a car and start choking you, man!"
Candice Owen, a black woman, and a far right spokes person, is also used by some white people, as a "representative" of black people, in order to dismiss racial issues. Candice is of course very well paid to say what she says, paid by white people. Going back to WWII analogy, I am sure many Dutch worked hard to resist the Nazi occupation, but I am sure there were Dutch Nazi sympathizers too, it was in all affected countries at the time, not that many but it was. Again, not a good idea to use just their opinions and ideas and say it would represent all the Dutch.
And Owen's video that surfaced in the last few days, spewing out non-facts and such has been debunked and I have seen many black people just scream that she is not a representative of black issues.
To understand an issue one has to build up a broader understanding. I can tell you haven't, yet. But I suggest you do. And maybe even research institutionalized racial bias in the Netherlands.
