You are one of my favorite intellectual southerners in America besides AronRa, Matt Dillehunty and Destin Sandlin. You are top notch and exquisitely sane. I applaud you infinitely, not for agreeing with my views but for making me self reflect amd therefore expanding my views and making me question my own sanity about shared reality amongs us humans.

Man, your videos are always great, thoughtful, and insightful. But you have outdone yourself here!! This is perfectly put, and reading through the comments, by a lot of American blacks, I see you have once again, hit the nail on the head. When I first clicked to watch the first video I watched of yours, you opened my eyes to my own preconceived ideas, and I have loved watching your videos ever since!! So, when are you going to run for president?? You would be a far better choice than the current moron!! 😉😉

You are very articulate and are speaking raw truth. To be honest I was scrolling through controversial political videos and saw how you looked and thought, oh this should be some dumb redneck. I was wrong and I am a dummy for judging a book by its cover. Thanks man, great video and I know subscribed

Sir, will you run for office? We need someone with a heart, a soul and a brain. We have more than we did before the mid-terms, but not enough. I view things as you do and if I am unclear about something, I ask one of my African American friends how to handle it because my redhair gets me angry before my brain kicks in to calm me back down. I pray that I live for the day when we all can be proud to be American citizens. I'll never understand what it means to be black in this country but I sure am glad that I have a friend, really she's more sister than friend, I'm glad my sister can try to explain it to me. Sir, what state do you live in? You can DM me, if you prefer. I was born in the home of the DAWGS, my parents relocated me to their home of the Tigers. They were angry that I didn't attend that University but out of state tuition kept me from returning to my birthright. But, I didn't go off half Cocked either. I chose the 1st University for Women in this state. Women can see farther down the road with almost Eagle eye precision. And, a day of equality is coming. And, the Senator in this state needs to go. You're obviously an intelligent man, so I doubt you will have any problem guessing my location. I enjoy your dose of sanity.

White people were made slaves just like black people. Black slavery ended 20 years before white slavery did. The only difference was white slavery was called Indentured servitude. Most white slaves were Irish, that's how they got to America. I'm Irish / Cherokee Indian, the Indians were almost exterminated, then segregated to the reservation. Then they were put in reeducation schools to get the Indian out of them. My government says that I'm too white to be red, too red to be White! I don't know about being black, but I know about being an Indian. I know about being Irish. If you care about your race, you are a racist because only a racist cares about race.

I have English and German ancestry. Plenty more that I'm not aware of, I'm sure. It means very little to me. What matters to me is American identity, American values, American culture. But, when the Alt-Right, and BLM, and AntiFa wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night obsessing about "race" (a fairly vague concept, even when scientifically systematized), they tear and tatter that American culture/identity/value system. In any case, thanks for your thoughtful content.

In S Africa, when they did the reconciliation hearings, the White S Africans had to sit and witness the stories of how Black S Africans were treated and abused by the Whites. And you're right, we are a long way from that where the Whites are willing to sit down and listen to the African Americans, the Native Americans, the Latino Americans and Asian Americans tell their stories. It's just getting worse as the buffoon in the White House Makes America Hate Again. The most recent manifestation of this is where a much of White boys attended a ceremony by a Native American Veteran of Vietnam as he paid tribute to his fallen brothers at Arlington National Cemetery recently. They made fun of Nathan Phillips as he chanted to honor the other vets buried at Arlington. http://newsmaven.io/indiancountrytoday/news/outrage-as-non-native-youth-wearing-maga-hats-taunt-and-disrespect-native-elder-jy7UVwdg8kK2uvT0L-JOig/

I just promised him, 20 yr old, , I would buy him a gun if he would listen to u for a month. I keep to my promises. But i want and he needs to hear a true man in his life. He is such a incredible honest soul. He has young common sense. I know i have not had the proper investment in the right area that he needs at this stage. He needs ur sane reality. His name is Josh VanBibber. If he contacts u, then he is hopefully learning a huge vessel of knowledge he needs. Please be involved, i would be greatly appreciated to ur involvement.

Wow very powerful. It's eye opening to hear the perspective of cultural identify. Another huge aspect is the ability to have any gains we make as a people stripped away at will. Black Wall Street, the Black Panthers, MLK, hell even freedom. This is the true meaning of racism the ability to affect the economic and social uprising of another group. It is not mean words or just hatred it goes way deeper than that.

Beau, I sincerely hope people watch and truly listen to what you're saying. If only everyone could understand what people of color have gone through and are still going through, there could be hope for change and equality. Knowledge is power, if you educate your children on the realities of someone else's life and struggle, if you take a minute or two out of your day to give an example or raise a question, to ask your child what it would feel like if that was their reality, they may just grow into understanding, empathetic, loving, colorblind adults. The failure starts in the home, continues in the school system and in our government and we all know how dangerous we'd be as a country and to our government if we all got together and demanded change and equality. As a white woman, I see too few examples of this in my every day life and I often think how I would feel if my history, experience and every day life was that of a black person, an Hispanic person (especially in the era of tRump), as a Native American, it's upsetting and infuriating to consider so I can't imagine it being a reality. I don't think anyone can fully understand unless they've walked a mile in the shoes of another, but awareness, kindness and willingness to comprehend and demand change is, at the very least, a place to start. Thank you for this and all of your videos. You're such a well thought out and kind man, I hope you reach more people Beau. It gives me hope that others get it, that though numbers may not be on this side yet, it's possible to flip it because you've taken the time to be the change. Blessings and peace to you and yours.

The problem will be solved when everyone considers themselves to be only Americans (not white Americans or African Americans....) and also treats others only as Americans. Only when people lose "their people" can they gain all people (fellow humans). Racism, like all other prejudices comes from our ancient monkey brains/limbic system (tribal instincts) and only our rational and logical cortex can override (and rationalize our fears) our emotionally reactive, threat inciting and instinctual amygdala. If people don't have good use of the rational parts of their brains, they will certainly be slaves to their monkey brains. It is a double edged sword, because empathy and compassion also comes from the cerebral cortex. The good news is that our brains are very plastic and due to the feedback loop nature of our brains, we get more of what we focus on, thus reinforcing neural pathways to the parts of our brains we use most. Working on becoming more rational will not only help the individual's quality of life enormously (no more living in fear for one), but also humanity in general.

Racism is and has been rampant in the US and currently trump has enabled the racist's to speak out. Beau has the real take on it for you white Americans who think you are not racist. The problem in this country and in the world is disparity of wealth and overpopulation which traps people of color with less education and less opportunity. White supremacists are just cowards who even with all their advantages can't make it in the modern world.

That makes a lot of sense. I wouldn't want to grow up in the consciousness that i'm living in a country where my ancestors were brought to as slaves. That gives you a whole different attitude to that country. I would probably hate it. Why have any respect for a country that exploited your ancestors as slaves?

The first video of yours that I watched was the "the things you missed" just posted. Inspiring to go out and talk to people. To have a conversation and understand that you might not agree but it doesn't mean you can't week together and get along. I believe in your vision of what the world could be. I strive everyday to live and treat those I come across with the same respect as I would my closest friends.

As someone who is (largely) white as Wonderbread, I've always found the equation pathetically simple: When I walk out the door and get into a car, do I automatically worry about being pulled over for DWW? No? Then I don't have a clue about what it's like to not be Caucasian. HAVING THE LUXURY TO SAY, "I'M TIRED OF THINKING ABOUT RACE RIGHT NOW, I'M GOING TO TAKE A BREAK," IS CENTRAL TO WHITE PRIVILEGE. I have to believe living with racism is like experiencing war first-hand: It simply doesn't matter how intelligent or imaginative or empathetic I am, I'm not ever going to get it without experiencing it myself. But I think Mr. Beau expresses it better, and deeper, yet. Kudos.

You are hitting information but not quite. I lived through and am currently living through this. A nation is an artificial person. penhallow v doane's ADM case tells you no artificial person or any political subdivision or agency may have any contract with a natural person. 1948 u.s. Supreme Court ruling The Heirs of Henry Tunica vs United States of America corporation clearly states this is not your land you don't own it. George HW Bush only gave back 50,000 of the Acres millions of acres are and it's a damn shame some of our sacred burial mounds are being used at state parks what we can't even get in to see our ancestors without the white man's permission. In Fort Bend Texas Fort Bend Independent School District is really the Klu Klux Klan it has been proven in federal court they just moved 100 bodies of my ancestors that have been buried for over 100 years and the first thing out of your mouth is the same damn stories about how they were inmate prison is back there. Violation of Jim Crow laws and they will find out and they worked as slaves until they were dead 13th Amendment didn't end slavery and a nation should only have the authority to direct on their own land the own citizens. We never accepted citizenship.

My grandma was pure Choctaw. Choctaw are black indigenous people. I have other tribal lines. My ancestry Upon This Land predates any European setting foot here. White folks in the government know that we are not from any damn Africa. They did take some Africans and and interbred so as to cause confusion telling us to go back to Africa so they can steal our land will many of us have our documents we can look back on death certificates and birth certificates of our ancestors and it'll be clearly defined what is a Indian colored this certain things that we can track back and even artifacts that we have this is our family history. Sooner or later you have to understand you cannot rewrite our family history I used to not know the answer to why conservative white people always ask what do you have to say African American because if you're calling yourself an American you are not of our family lines you are not our people this is not your land in fact I don't use any of the denominations white people assigned to us. You must stop the lies about we all come.from the same people all European people have Neanderthal DNA. If you I just send it you can't have any DNA that we didn't pass on to you. thank goodness that the youth understand the fake religion that was stolen from out of the Giza Pyramid isn't the truth.

Slavery has never ended we are not biologically related to you people. you are not indigenous to this land. We are told on a regular basis to go back to Africa. However most of us were never in Africa. The Olmecs are the oldest documented society in North America South America and Central America. The Olmecs spoke a language that it was still the same spoken in West Africa today. You and your families are Interlopers. You are the immigrants that when they were welcomed you killed and stole. Now you accuse the Hispanics of the same treacherous activity. What makes it even worse we are sovereign people yet you never stop making laws to keep us captive . you run around talking about the Constitution not a single Freedman indigenous to this land had anything to say about it. your people continue making laws and impose them upon us on our own land . The US government has defaulted on payments to people that classify as Native American it's time to evict all of you. That really would get rid of all of the problems you talk about the economy all your stock markets and everything are based upon stealing from other black people the u.s. have so many troops all over Africa is not funny in France right behind them stealing. The same as with Australia they keep acting like they want to negotiate with the indigenous people you'll never hear them a call them the native there's no negotiation there rioting over there the writing all over the world getting the you European people off of their land out of their lives away from their children. The identification nonsense with you people confronting anybody black to identify is saying the same thing as demanding where are your passing papers? Just more Jim Crow. You lie you beat you rape you still kill we're tired of it and it's going to come to a point upon site you're going to start getting killed. we can't tell the difference between the good one of you and the bad. Jury of peers? Yeah right. You will never know the feeling of not knowing if you will be killed by some lunatic because he or she feels uneasy. When I see white youth I try to cross the street. They thought think their violent and racist behavior is funny and rarely get prosecuted for the damage they do. I think that deep inside most white people you know that day is coming where the energy will return.

One of the things I've done for myself is to learn more about my African heritage world wide, so to speak. The African man and woman is the original human being and everyone is a descendant of the African. So when anyone refers to me as less than human, I know the truth and don't need to get upset over the myth of my supposed inferiority. When one knows the truth, one can interact with pride and confidence and not let people who've been indoctrinated by the White elites who've poisoned the minds of the willing who've accepted the lies as truth. Most people want to believe their own truth, but not the truth regarding mankind and our history. For me, it's been a long journey of discovery combined with joy and pain, but worthy knowledge of people and self. I appreciate your perspective on this subject because widening one's perspective is healthy as well as spiritual. Thanks Beau!
