Here a self-aware person provides a window into the exact scenario I warned about. He (I presume) does not wish to gather by race, but also does not wish to be left vulnerable for failing to do so if that is the only option that protects his dignity and his rights.

Here is the video he is commenting on for those who haven’t seen it. By the way, I see many replies quick to condemn this person. I understand the impulse, but it is wrongheaded.

The replies to the video and to this thread are incredibly revealing.

I’m becoming concerned that the straw man people have taken to savaging in the replies can’t take much more of this.

Who told him this, and does he have a life outside of the internet? Who /What is he surrounding himself with?

I'm a little surprised by this response. I know exactly what he is talking about.

Brett, black people have been told and treated like we're inferior for centuries in law and norms. We're still vulnerable to the will of the majority. We're not arming up for a race war, and we're not seeing people of your stature justifying any such sentiment for us.

I’m well aware of the history and predicament. You’re missing my point. 1. I keep saying that most on the left wish to end oppression, but some wish to turn the tables of oppression. 2. Driving a wedge between whites and others will is sure to be disastrous for the others.

Your 'warning' is a self-fulfilling prophesy. Your viewers aren't watching liberal media. They're watching you. So when you tell them the left is "demonizing whiteness," they don't check MSNBC. They just believe you. And when they become extremists, you can say you warned us.

It is impossible to think coherently given those constraints. Many on the left ARE demonizing "whiteness", an absolutely insane choice for many reasons. And they are disrupting lives. But I can't warn about it because that calls attention to it? Come on. It must be discussed.

Bret, I understand your point, but does it not worry you that so many commenters on your video seem to be preparing for a race war?

You could not possibly understand my point if you are asking me that question.
