Now when the confusion in the state was at its height, inasmuch as it was made known that there were three several emperors, Septimius Severus, Pescennius Niger, and Clodius Albinus, the priest of the Delphic Apollo was asked which of them as emperor would prove of most profit to the state, whereupon, it is said, he gave voice to a Greek verse as follows:
"Best is the Dark One, the African good, but the worst is the White One."
p449 2 And in this response it was clearly understood that Niger was meant by the Dark One, Severus by the African, and Albinus by the White One. 3 Thereupon the curiosity of the questioners was aroused, and they asked who would really win the empire. To this the priest replied with further verses somewhat as follows:
"Both of the Black and the White shall the life-blood be shed all untimely;
Empire over the world shall be held by the native of Carthage."
Among the prophets and teachers of the church at Antioch of Syria were Barnabas, Simeon (called "the black man"), Lucius (from Cyrene), Manaen (the childhood companion of King Herod Antipas), and Saul.

I certainly believe that is a possibility but do you have anything besides your word to qualify your statement?

I fully concur.
If our country is ever going to become color-blind. If it is ever going to leave racism and discrimination behind, we have to get away from institutionalized bigotry.
A few cases in point of that:
Miss Black anything
I could go on and on.
Not to mention the govt supported reverse discrimination which forces colleges, business etc to accept the under-qualified instead of just hiring the qualified regardless of race, creed or religion.
There is a decision before SCOTUS that claims that running a background checks for jobs or housing violates a single race's civil rights. Even if the background checks and decisions are comprehensive and applied without regard of race, it is still claimed to be discriminatory. Why? Because this particular race has a high incident rate of convictions and criminal records. Let's not address the root cause.. by any means.
In other words, you will place other's at risk by having to move in people with murder records, burglary, sex offenders etc etc into a perfectly nice apartment complex.
f you don’t believe that racism in the job market is real, then please read this article by Yolanda Spivey. Spivey, who was seeking work in the insurance industry, found that she wasn’t getting any job offers. But as an experiment, she changed her name to Bianca White, to see if employers would respond differently. You’ll be shocked and amazed by her phenomenal story.
The point is when we truly reach a point where people can respond equally to online shopping with a Black hand holding a product and a white hand holding said product then check racism off the list, until then black folks is gonna remain suspicious and White folks is gonna act out based off assumptions.
