Say your child went through a traumatic event; dog attack. Although it is OK and healthy to talk about it, eventually you need to move the child forward, so the healing process can begin. This may even require showing them nice dogs so they can be more objective to the fact that some dogs are bad and some are good. If you continue to fixate on the trauma, step 2 leading to healing can never begin. In the case of the blacks, slavery is something, no living black person, ever experienced directly. There is no direct connection between any modern black person and the darkness of slavery. Such people would need to be 160 plus years old. In this case, the analogy is like making your child afraid of Jack the Ripper from 140 years ago. Jack the Ripper did indeed kill many people, but he did not hurt your child, who nevertheless has nightmares about him. You as the parent, would not reinforce these nightmares unless there is an underlying motivation. I often wondered, what kind of emotional buzz does this give liberals? If someone did this to a child; make them scared of Jack the Ripper, what would be the purpose? Older siblings may do this for laughs. One explanation is to make one feel superior, since one is not afraid of the fantasy, that can cripple the child. The other possibility is to make the child dependent on you, for protection. One can look stronger and feel needed, by the fear being expressed, while being assured that Jack the Ripper is from the past, allowing one to talk tough. In this case, the child will never be allowed to get to start step 2, since this will change these dynamics and make the child more self reliant. The racism and white privilege that the left sees, has data, but it mostly comes from projection. Projection is when the unconscious mind tries to make unconscious things, conscious, so one can deal with them. What is unconscious in the mind of liberalism, the role they play in keeping the child afraid of Jack the Ripper, which they enforce with the mantra of white privilege. Those on the Right; Conservative, don't see this same projection, since they are working from the premise, that is it time for step 2 of healing. Jack the Ripper died long ago, he need not appear each election cycle.
