if I said half of these (especially reversed) I'd be racist

White people are better at linear, rational thinking? Delayed gratification?

Not speaking about descendants of African slaves, the majority of immigrant people of color come specifically to take advantage of these attitudes.

Do you agree that saying that Hard work, objective thinking, delayed gratification and Mastering/controlling ones nature are white things (and the inference that black people don't believe in those things) is a extremely racist statement?

It was a joke playing off Trumps "I am the least racist person in the world".

Like this? Is this what they are trying to say?(FTR, these are not my personal beliefs but rather the flip side of what they are saying)


Quote
ASPECTS & ASSUMPTIONS OF BLACK CULTURE IN THE  UNITED STATES
TALKING ABOUT RACE I NMAAHC



Less Individualism• The individual is not the primary unit • Less Self-reliance • Independence & autonomy not highly valued or rewarded • Individuals assumed not to have control of their environment, "You don’t get what you deserve"


Unstructured Family• No nuclear family with father and mother • No husband as breadwinner and head of household • Mother is homemaker, breadwinner, and insubordinate to the husband • Children should be dependent


No Emphasis on Scientific Method • Unobjective, irrational non-linear thinking • No cause and effect relationships • No quantitative emphasis


Work Ethic • Hard work is irrelevant to success • Play before work • "If you didn't meet your goals, it has nothing to do with you"


Status, Power & Authority • Wealth is not worth • Your job isn’t who you are • Don’t respect authority • Little value on ownership of goods, space, property


Future Orientation• Don’t plan for future • Instant gratification • Progress doesn’t matter • "Tomorrow won’t be better"


Time• Don’t follow rigid time schedules • Time has little value


Justice• Based on _______(no?) law • Disregard property & entitlement • Intent is irrelevant


Competition• Don’t make sure to be #1 • No winner/losers • No Action Orientation • Don’t Win at all costs • Be controlled by nature • "do nothing" about a situation • no Aggressiveness and Extroversion • No Decision-Making • Minority rules (when Whites have power)


Communication• "Ebonics" rules • No written tradition • Don’t avoid conflict, intimacy • show emotion • discuss personal life • Don’t be polite

WT*? I don't think I've ever seen a more racist thing in my life!
