Why Are white People so Angry

A friend of mine, actually he kinda feels like a son, his wife a daughter in-law and his kids feel like grandkids, called me a few days ago. They moved from Montana to South Carolina this summer. They like it, a little home sick for Montana too. The kids are thriving in school.
“Frances, you know what I notice down here, all the white people are angry. People of color, people from other cultures are all happy and friendly. At work the other day some black guys said something about white rage. I jumped in and said yea, I noticed that. What’s that all about. They said, I don’t know we’ve been trying figure that out for years.”
He also mentioned the large population of white Christians who seem to walk around judging and deciding what is right or wrong so they feel right.
My friend is a white guy who was raised and lived all of his life in Montana until now. What he is liking about his new home is being around diversity and getting to know people from other cultures.
Our conversation struck me. Today this popped up on a newsfeed. It’s all in the same vein.

  1. I love the video of the white guy’s experience in a black church. Even before I had black grandchildren, I was a regular in black churches. Your blog is authentic to my experiences. My take for many years and especially now has to do with race and culture. The fear of many whites is ‘they’ are taking over. And that fear creates anger. I can’t speak to all, but I am from the south, and many of my close relatives exhibit this anger. Their hatred is “REAL.”
