Black people

I'm ignorant on what issues black people have today. I'm asking a serious question to blacks. What would you like to see done? What do you feel are the issues in today's society against blacks.

Edit: to be clear I'm asking about things that can be changed. Things we can legally stand for or against. I'm not asking about changing racists thoughts and feelings. Be realistic, that will never happen. You can't control people.

You do realize that one black person isn't the representative for all black people. And the issues are different, varied or non existent depending on the person

Also it should be noted that expecting POC to educate white people is one of the items.

I wasn't speaking to one black person. I very clearly said black people, plural. What is the general problem that needs to be changed and how can we do it?

How do you expect to get any results without educating? That is stupid.

I understood. I also understand you are very ignorant if you can open your eyes to look around to see what struggles black people face everyday.

I did, I just provided the graphic. There are also plenty of resources online that you can refer to if you are honestly interested in understanding. There are also plenty of knowledgeable white people who can assist.

I want personal, real answers. I'm not looking for repeated media crap that gets spread around like fertilizer. How do we fix it? Be realistic. There will always be racism. We can't force people to think and feel the way we want.
