Just a little spare change that I'd figure I would share for purposes of Truth.
It deals with slavery, and blame.
If we are going to blame the White race for slavery.
Then we must blame the black race for selling slaves, and the slaughters in the Congo, South Africa, Sudan, Etc...
Then we must blame the Asian race for the Tiananmen Square Massacre, The Deaths of the Cultural Revolution in China, and the Sino-Japanese Wars
Then we must blame the Latino race for the Tlatelolco Massacre, and the widespread government corruption in south American countries.
A few A$$holes do some bad things, and that implicates an entire RACE?
Now THAT, is the Dictionary DEFINITION of Racism.
I do not feel guilty for slavery at all.
I did not participate in it.
To blame me (or the white race) for it, because of the color of skin *is racist*.
Oh, and to answer the question as to how long it takes a race to get out of poverty...
20 years... One generation.
That is IT.
Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcome.
Equal outcome is not Democracy, or Capitalism... it is Socialism, Communism.
Here in the States, we reward hard work and ingenuity.
If you work hard, you can lift your own family out of the gutter, and start your kids off better than you were.
One generation is all that it takes, YOU may not get out of the gutter... but there is no reason that you cannot get your KIDS out of the gutter.
Save up, and send em to collage.
Of course... the only problem with that is... the Single parent rate.
IT is harder to save to get your kids to collage on one parent.
Some interesting information I found that I will share about race and statistics from the US Department of Census.
just my $.02
