Speaking Up for the Black Nation

Artist's Description

Dick Raphaël - Do Black People get to complain more than Whites because of their historical context?

Muhammad Rasheed - I’m unconvinced that Black people do complain more than white people.

I’m not talking about a general griping that people do all the time. If that’s the case, then whites win that contest by virtue of having the higher numbers among the populace.

If you’re actually talking about structured, focused, strategic ‘complaining’ in the political arena, then yeah, whites win that one, too. Black people haven’t pushed for their own Black Political Agenda since the civil rights era in the 1960s. When they play politics, it’s always to support some other group’s special interest agenda.

White people definitely do the most complaining—formally and informally—so that means your question is based on an inaccuracy. Perhaps the issue is actually one of quantity over quality, with the nature of Black people complaints being more potent because they trigger ‘white guilt’ since they are based upon the nation’s enduring sin of anti-Black systemic racism.
