But since the civil rights act at least, it's not that hard to tell which party has catered to conservative white voters.
Many of us do not approve of having to study Shakespeare, Mozart, or Einstein. But to claim the study of these contributes to racial problems is just plain goofy and serves to demonstrate the point I am making that everything is not reducible down to just a racial issue. There is more to life than just race.

No, I can’t tell you why, "standardized tests are more geared towards Whites as opposed to Asians, African Americans or Latinos/Mexicans" because they are NOT geared towards whites.
2+2 is going to equal 4 no matter what color of skin your wearing or standardized test you are given.
So, get over it already, not everything is a racial conspiracy. Everything does not begin with a racial motive behind it.
Lets leave Asians and Mexicans out of it. They aren’t the ones claiming those who don’t back obama are racist.
It's common knowledge, as well as statistical knowledge the Asian students do quite well in this system you claim is so "geared towards the whites". Wonder why? maybe it's because they have a genuine interest in learning something and don't consider themselves as being in victim mode screaching, "discrimination" at every opportunity.

If your that concerned with the causes of “racism” in this country, a good place to start would be the self appointed spokesmen for the black race, (yourself included).
I don’t think I have ever heard any of these spokesmen give black people no credit for anything other than being a victim.
Junior wants to know about his heritage, what does he find when he listens to one of you self appointed spokesmen, he learns he is a VICTIM, someone who has been dumped on. It’s always the same, it’s always VICTIM, VICTIM, VICTIM, His past is a story of him being a VICTIM, his present is being a VICTIM, his future is being a VICTIM. It's all just one big story of how he and his race have been dumped on. Yes, "a mind is a terrible thing to waste". If you had any idea of the poison you inject into a young mind every time you preach this hopelessness, this victim logy, you would no longer do it.
This kind of talk is guaranteed to destroy a young mind before it even begins to grow. It will kill self respect, and create a criminal.
You simply cannot have much respect for the black man if all you can see him as is a VICTIM. It's really to bad the so called black leaders have such a low opinion of their brothers, they see nothing positive and it is they who believe the black man is not equal to the white
As the late, great, Booker T Washington once said, “You cannot keep a man down without yourself staying down”
So, before you accuse the white man of all this, take a look at who is really keeping the black man down, and who is staying down with him.
I am a white man and I do not see the black man as a hopeless VICTIM.
Rather than trying to make the white man responsible for all the ills of the black race, listen instead to some of these self appointed spokesmen for the black race, the Al Sharptons and Jessie Jackson’s.
The only time you will ever hear from them is when the are telling black people they are hopeless VICTIMS. The only thing that brings them to life is when they can see an opportunity to accuse someone or something a “racist”. Otherwise they are quite comfortable living under a rock. Sharpton and Jackson are racially conscious. MOF their race is the only thing they are truly conscious of.

Ahhh, you poor, poor, black man who has been dumped on and victimized by the mean ol’ white people.
Oh, when will it all end? The refusal of the education and political system to accommodate my special needs. Can't they see I am black? When will I receive my reparations for being forced to live in the white man's world. Oh, the horror of it all, no amount of payment will ever make up for the wrong the mean ol' white man has done to me. It's the white man who is responsible for all my conditions. It's the white man who determines my destiny, not me.
There I have agreed with you, I guess that’s what you were looking for, there is nothing else I can do for you.

yea, that's how i'm feeling now. rather than getting all hot and bothered when GW was literally stealing you blind, the masses blindly cloaked themselves in the american flag all while canting "we will rock you!" not caring.
Now that obama is in office he's not doing anything new. They've been running this game on the public, i'm talkin usani bolt runnin! Now they want to fight back, hell don't be a chicken hawk. When everyone else was doin what they do you was a chicken but now there's a black guy oops gotta be politically correct, what looks like a black guy up there you wanna be a hawk.
I got the upmost respect to those that was pissed at the whole system before obama got into office. And i pity those that actually believed in his message of hope and change..he's a politician.

Gee, sorry it wasn't the answer you wanted. It was however, the most optimum answer given the circumstances, You entered this thread talking about your race and being a victim because of it. You loosely throw around the word "racism" and assign it in broad generalities. You seem to find it everywhere except in yourself. And you leave this thread preaching the same thing. “White privilage”
Take a look at your post on page 7 you even accuse others of having a limited mental capacity who don’t agree with you,
It’s not hard at all to decipher your “message”. You want to roll play the part of being the poor black victim dumped on by the mean ol’ white man. Yada, yada, yada, Playing victim is the easiest of all parts to play. It requires, no brains, no creativity, no imigination. You must enjoy the part you play, your arguments do without variation advocate being the victim.
You deserve all your hate and the consequences that follow it. May you never find what millions of others have found in this country before you, A LAND OF OPPORTUNITY! May you continue to elect the white man as responsible for your condition. After all, someone has to be responsible for you. You obviously won’t. And last, maybe it’s just as well you stumble through life with your racial blinders on, that way you’ll be easier to spot and avoided for those who see potential an opportunity in this country and refuse to be a victim.
