Anonymous - How do black people feel about white people?

Muhammad Rasheed - Because of the body of my editorial cartoon work and its focus on the anti-racism cause, I'll often get comments from white people that sound similar to, "Hey, I looked at your cartoons, man. You really, really, really hate white people. It's palpable. And honestly, I understand. I'd probably hate white people too, if I were black."

To be clear, I 100% do NOT hate white people. That actually wouldn't be fair to hate the descendants of the ethnic tribes of Europe for literally no other reason than because of that. I don't subscribe to that mindset at all.

What I DO hate is the White Supremacist Ideology and the anti-Black systemic racism for which it stands. THAT mess has to go. Sometimes I encounter hostile white people (and sometimes their Black lackeys) who won't or can't separate "white people" from "white supremacy" and I get that ole "M. Rasheed hates ALL whiteys!!!" type of talk, which is the nature of the conflict. For you, Dear Reader, I ask that you work harder to see the clear difference and do not put me in that narrow box.

I absolutely do not hate you just because you are white. Calm down and redirect that misplaced butthurt energy towards something more useful, like dismantling anti-Black systemic racism, please. Thank you.
