As a protest against the black football player's actions, white people chant "USA" when the black football player enters the game and then on another occasion before he takes the field.
Is this racism?
The black football player was protesting against racism. The white people, in defense of racism, that is hiding behind patriotism, chant "USA."
The crowd was saying, "boy, we can't come down there and make you show respect for our flag and country but we can let you know that the most important thing to us is not black lives." Yes, of course, chanting "USA" at Colin Kaepernick is racism.
Yes, punishing WNBA players for wearing Black Lives Matter shirts is just like chanting "USA" is just like racism. Ancestor Frances Cress-Welsing told us, sports is one of the major institutions of racism. "Yup! Sho' nuf iz bawse!" Blue Lives Matter is just ridiculous. Of course, so is everything racism does. Those Blue Lives Matter people are saying the same thing as chanting "USA." White lives matter extremely more than black lives. Sure a few white cops and black cops and others have died but in no way does that equate to the lifelong historical cop military killings of blacks in America and across the globe. There would be no problem with blue lives if white lives didn't have a problem with black lives. The police, the military and racism are the same things. Racism, America, patriotism and white people go hand-in-hand-in-hand-in-hand. Racism, America, patriotism and white people go hand-in-hand-in-hand-in-hand. As discussed in the previous message, you cannot identity racism by a single act or person unless you analyze it in the context of racism to see whether or not racism is supported.
Racism is a series, a process, a system, a collective of actions and people.
Just because all the actions don't happen at once does not mean each action is not an act of racism. Just because what one person does is not noticed does not mean they are not a racist. There are many acts of racism that must continuously take place. As a result, most acts of racism are not recognized as being part of racism and this is partly why a lot of white people claim not to be racists. A lot of racism has to take place that allows a white person to kill a black person and not be punished. Chanting "USA" to protest against a person who is protesting the treatment of blacks, is the same as directly, but indirectly, saying, "We support racism." Another for instance. Education is racism. What is taught forms a huge basis for racism logic.
One more for instance. All forms of media are forms of racist actions because they teach the worthlessness of black people, thus the worthlessness of their lives. To reach the point of black lives not mattering, which we reached long ago, a series, process, system of actions must exist and be practiced by a collective. Imagine this truth: if we removed from human logic, (1) religious ideology, (2) education and (3) notions of what is so special about the culture we are in, racism would collapse and never come back. There are many things that might not seem like they are racism behaviors, but they are the seeds and they are the nutrients that support and give life to racism. Colin Kaepernick said, "I don't understand what's un-American about fighting for liberty and justice for everybody, for the equality this country says it stands for."
Colin will understand when he starts from here and reads the previous message and then the previous message and then the previous message...until he reaches the truth sitting right there beside the lie embedded in his logic.Beginning at minute 25, Indigo Crystal Marcus explains why the behavior of others matters and precipitates normalcy and becomes culture. [Thus, in light of this information and all things considered again, the behavior of chanting "USA" as a counterattack to a black person protesting against acts of racism is clearly a contributing part to a culture of racism.]
