Default People complaining about the anger towards Sterling are looking at this all wrong

I have seen certain posters complaining that Sterling got hit with too heavy a hand by Silver and his boys. Well that is stupid, and you know it is. Thats not what Im discussing here though.

People have said that racism towards black people is not tolerated, or more heavily enforced in terms of prevention than racism towards other races (I have seen native americans used as an example). So, for anyone making this case, I think you have to realise that yes, it would be great if all races could get the same amount of respect and protection from racism. But sadly our world is not like that and some races are almost ignored.

Instead of complaining that black people get too much protection compared to others, why dont you complain about the fact that other races should be getting MORE protection?

If I see a bunch of starving children and there are some that are well fed, Im not going to begrudge the well fed children their right to be well fed. I will be aggrieved at the fact that the malnourished kids should also be well fed.

People saying that the black race is too coddled when it comes to enforcing punishment for race discrimination are just using this saga to peddle their own selfish and borderline racist agendas.

Yes, groups such as Native Americans and Middle Eastern people in the US don't get enough attention. Still, that does not mean we should stop fighting oppression against black people.
