What is Identity Politics?
According to Merriam-webster dictionary, the definition of Identity politics -” when groups of people having a particular racial, religious, ethnic, social, or cultural identity tend to promote their own specific interests or concerns without regard to the interests or concerns of any larger political group.” In other words, certain people use race or cultural identity for their political gain. For example, the radical left and Biden support racism and discrimination rather than character and merit (look up the staff under the Biden administration).
The division is their game and marxism is their name.
In this political climate that we are in, it speaks volumes of how poor the education system is in America (like the critical race theory) and that some people still believe that the democrats have black people’s best interest at heart.
According to Cambridge Dictionary, victimhood means “the condition of having been hurt, damaged, or made to suffer, especially when you want people to feel sorry for you because of this or use it as an excuse for something.”
In my opinion, if you feel that you are being oppressed, then you are being oppressed by YOURSELF. There is still racism and bigotry but it’s been blown way out of proportion especially when it is coming from the mainstream media. I will continue to refuse to use bigotry as a crutch to accomplish what I want to do in my life. If I use “the white man” excuse all the time for my failures, I would not be where I am today.
In my personal experience, not one white person has ever told me that I am worthless but I have heard it from black people. I’ve heard stories of how they tell other black people that they can’t get anywhere in life because of the color of their skin. To be honest, way more blacks than whites have continuously tried to put me down because of my conservative values. But I always say to them, “do not put me in a box…or we are not monolithic, we are diverse…not all black people think alike!”
Don’t allow anyone (no matter what race they are) to convince you that you cannot be successful because of the color of your skin.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
