Quite frankly, the idea that reparations, affirmative action and government assistance are even close to settling the score and righting the centuries of slavery is completely laughable. "White privilege" is alive and well.

What people in the past did to your ancestors does not mean I owe you ANYTHING.

Your disadvantage is that you are reliant on the federal government rather than yourself. Your problems are not caused by white people, they are caused by yourself.

We are all CREATED equal. results are only based on what you make of your life.

There is no longer such a thing as "white privlege". In fact, the opposite is occuring because white people STILL feel guilty. The perfect example of this is New Haven firefighter case. A bunch of firefighters took a test in order to get a promotion of some sort. This test required many of the fire fighters to spend money and time studying to pass.

However, because no black firefighters passed the test, they didn't give promotions to those that did pass the test. Honest working people were denied what they rightfully earned because the fire department favored black people. That is racism.

Don't tell me white people are so privileged. Racism is such a bad thing that white people will bend over backwards to keep from even being accused of racism.

To say that there is no such thing as White privilege is, again, completely laughable. The roots of racism, even unconscious racism, are so deep that an astounding number of people deny its rabid existence. And that's sad. The problems that exist today are not necessarily due to overt racism, but the denial that the problems that were systematized by our White ancestors 150 years ago still have profound effects and continue to cause inequality.

FACT: Black people were completely stripped of rights during and after slavery.
FACT: This removal of rights gave White Americans a head start of a few centuries.
FACT: Nothing major was really done to right these wrongs until about the 1960's
CONCLUSION: It takes a hell of a lot longer than fifty years of legal equality to make up for the 200 of social inequality.

Are things getting better? I'd say definitely. But to say that racism does not exist is just ignorant and I feel bad for any one who is that ignorant.

oh yes, because their ancestors being brought here to be slaves was so much worse then them more then likely dieing of starvation and disease.


yeah it wasn't right but their offspring got a better life because of it. the kids of today haven't suffered at all. so people like you need to stop bitching.

The deck is still stacked against Black people in America, as it has been from the country's inception. If you think Black kids today don't face adversity then you're ignorant.

And I'd say being shackled, tortured, and stripped of your basic human rights is on the same level with starvation and disease, which Black people faced on the voyage to the Americas as well. Any one who tells you the American slave trade wasn't a genocide is either a liar, is terribly misinformed, or doesn't know the definition of "genocide."

Its not really. If a prim and proper African American applied for a job that he does well, lets say lawyer for instance, he would not necessarily get rejected just because he is black. Its not that kinda of world anymore.
Am I saying there is any racism in America? No, that would be retarded, but its not that pronounced anymore. Its not like just because your black that your going to be homeless or anything. If you think that the adversity is that bad, then your stuck in the past.

other tribes in Africa at the time would enslave weaker tribes as well. so there is a possibility that they would have faced the same If they had stayed. you also seem to forget that their were many other slaves brought into america at that time. perhaps most well know were the irish. they came here to be slaves, were put on more crowded ships that were even less safe then the one the African Americans were brought in on. so why dont they get their own benefits?

the definition of genocide. "the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group" we didn't go in and kill them, we made them do work with little compensation.

The figure is close to 10 Million Blacks being killed in the centuries of the American slave trade. And, while we didn't kill them all, I'd say the complete and total racial subservience that was most DEFINITELY forcibly systematized qualifies as genocide to destroy the basic human rights of freed Blacks.

I got blame for being racist when i was working in the military in Austin. I have alot of black friends, so they were cool when i said ******/*****, which was few and far between. So i accidentaly said it to my military friends out loud....

And they tried to have me counseled and bump down a rank. The Master Sergent in charge of us looked at me, asked me if i knew of the word. I gave him the definition and the like, as well as the use of it when i worked outside of the military. The MS called me a Wetback, in front of the 4 other black people that was trying to get me in trouble. They were shocked. Me? I laughed out loud. "Really?" i said. "That best you got, Beaner?" My MS is Mexican-American, so am I, he laughed, told me to push, which i did, and turn to the others. Told them that if that got they feelings hurt by such a word, they should get there little tampons in their pussy and cry themselves to sleep. We both understood that the word was used in old days to be hurtful, but they weren't born at that time. they were 20 years old, not 50. The word is used everywhere, in movies, music, and books. They need to move on, a word is just a word. nothing more. if they get offended this easily in off comment, he hates to see what happens when someone uses it in a offensive matter. I did apologized, but they refused to acknowledge. Said i was racist beaner. I just shrugged and moved on. I worked with these people for 4 months, called me everything and anything to get a rise out of me. when new people came in, i told them to ignore the words that they said to me. They didn't, the same four that tried to get me in trouble got a pay deduction and were pulled off orders for misconduct. for being misuse of words and being 'violent to others' during duty.

I smiled when they left. said, "If only they learn to let go, then they would not be in this mess." People have to learn from the past, not live in it.

If that were true there would be a United Whitey College Fund, mandatory hiring of white people in all workplaces, the White Music channel, March would be White History month, and schools would bus in white people from poor neighborhoods to better school districts.

Blacks get a myriad of assistance in life for no other reason then that they are black. That is the literal definition of racism.

I hate the fact that pageants for black women, black pride parades, and black leagues for sports are all OK in modern times where everyone is equal but if anyone tried to have a white pride parade all **** hits that fan.

I have to agree. I'm Jewish and my family had nothing to do with slavery. They talk about how horrible it is. It is horrible. But my family was killed by Nazis. Black people have their own continent, Jews hardly even have a country. I'm not racist, just angry at double standards.

I'd like to see someone take it to the Supreme Court that Minorities get more funding than Caucasian children

Of course that person would be hated by almost every Minority ever (excluding the ones with level heads)
