Have you ever heard of a man called Obama?

You are convoluted if you think Obama really runs this country.
But I'll digress from my conspiratory side.
The U.S government has a thing called checks & balances so let's factor in the 535 members of congress and the 3600 federal judges. There are about 31 african american members of congress but I can't find a statistic for the judges, so that given I'd estimate the ratio of blacks to non-blacks in a position of power in the federal government to be very lopsided in heavy favor of non-blacks

If I were you Id lower that number a few. If I were black I would never claim that dumbass that thinks Guam might tip over nor any of his road dogs.

Well my sir here in the wonderfully diverse city of Chicago literally thousands of African-Americans who had the same exact and sometimes superior qualifications of other fireman candidates that were not black, immediately got bypassed because of the color of their skin.

City award millions and will hire 111 african-americans



Chicago will hire 111 bypassed black firefighters by March 2012 and pay at least $30 million in damages to some 6,000 others who will never get that chance, under a court order expected to be approved Wednesday by a federal judge.


I think in 2001 Chicago had the highest murder rate in the country and a staggaring amount of the homicide victims were black. The Ford plant was recently hiring and people lined up for blocks and blocks in freezing temperatures. So yes black people want to work, black people want a better future for themselves. The lawless lifestyle is quickly losing favor among black youth. Trust me I've done both.

Wouldn't a black only college be considered along the lines of black privilege? Do I smell hypocrisy on the forums today?


There is no such thing as a black only college in the United States of America. Persons who are not black might be dissuaded from attending a historically black college for obvious reasons, but of course anyone can apply and be accepted regardless of race. The mission of a historically black college is to maintain and promote the legacy of higher education of black people.

So we have a half black president but still some 'people of colour' don't want to shake that chip off their shoulder?



As long as the othe white folks (who claim they are not white) run the banks ,media and our government by proxy, the chip will remain because of constant brainwashing.

Slavery is so exaggerated not only in its numbers and stories but as to who actually were slave owners

civil rights was a staged event

black power movement,yea,staged

All to dismantle this nation and christians

So you mean black candidates to become firemen were passed over and bypassed in the same way as 'Historically Black Colleges' pass over and bypass white applicants?

That's racist.

White people do attend historically black colleges, I know a great amount in law school now.
And dated a guy in undergrad, he was very white, very fine and very privileged.
and he wanted to learn another way.

Lol , any college thats not historically black is indeed historically white in america. Lol

You just learned about historically black colleges stop spreading DISINFORMATION about the enrollment process.

If you want to learn more google some "a different world " episodes.

Its not 100 percent, but a good starting point for someone interested.

Again Captain; you scare me a great deal with your obvious lack of knowledge coupled with the desire to share incorrect concepts with the public as if they are fact. If you are of voting age I will double down on that fear.

The system of checks and balances to which you refer in terms of the U.S. government is with regard to the balance of power between the three branches of government not the many races of the countries residents.

There is a failed experiment called affirmative action which allotted preference to minorities in hiring for government employment in the hopes it would break the cycle of poverty - we all see how well that worked. Perhaps that is what you are confusing with checks and balances? I don't know...

Where do you come up with this stuff...?

That is correct. That is why I don't get up in arms about there not being a "white college". The Idea is silly just like the Idea for having a black college nowadays is silly. It meant something good decades ago when blacks didn't have rights but now they do.

I was aware of that and Kudos to those individuals. But the fact is that what you are talking about gets media exposure, reverse the roles...

Anyways, it is a change in the culture, and that is the problem that needed addressed to begin with. It is a change in the culture that people like Diddy promote, he wants that thug culture to thrive.

Though you skim over the statistics of the problems of unemployed but quote statistics of crime and violence , its a no win situation for you with blacks.

Your son is of mixed race? Good, I would hope that your views haven't polluted his mind as of yet. That's the problem in this country, the previous generation and their hatred has poisoned those that have come after them.

Please do explain how he would poison his sons mind??, by not teaching him to hate white men??, by not teaching him he is being halt back??, by teaching him he should love all no matter their colour??.
I guess in you're mind, all that would be poisoning him. Maybe you would be more happy if he did teach him to hate white people, that black people are being halt down by the white man, and that he should only care for other black people???.
I bet you will/are a great father
...


My posts get deleted because there is biased moderating on here, and certain people get upset when you tell it like it is about this fringe right wing forum that allows members to freely spout nonsense from the bowels of hatred.

Yes and im sure that you're posts getting deleted had nothing to do with you're racist remarks or anything like that
. please do get over you're self...

Classic...I wanted to see how diverse these HBC's really were...without looking I guessed (correctly) that a HBC would be dead last on this ranking.

I even guessed which one (correctly).

Howard U. with a ranking of 0.02 on a scale of 0.00 to 1.00 with 1.00 being the most diverse student body.

I only checked my hypothesis on the last one so don't know where the other HBC's fall - I would guess at the bottom as well.

Campus Ethnic Diversity - National Universities


College-bound students who believe that studying with people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds is important will want to consider student-body diversity when choosing a school. To identify colleges where students are most likely to encounter undergraduates from racial or ethnic groups different from their own, U.S. News factors in the total proportion of minority students, leaving out international students, and the overall mix of groups.

The data are drawn from each institution's 2010-2011 school year student body.

The categories we use in our calculations are African-Americans who are non-Hispanic, Hispanic, American Indian, Pacific Islander, whites who are non-Hispanic, and multiracial. Students who did not identify themselves as members of any of those demographic groups were classified as whites who are non-Hispanic for the purpose of these calculations. Our formula produces a diversity index that ranges from 0.0 to 1.0. The closer a school's number is to 1.0, the more diverse is the student population.


If these numbers were reversed there would be outrage....

Just because things are uncomfortable to talk about does not mean that they are wrong or racist. White power and Black power do not hold the same meanings today that they did 50 years ago. I'm sorry, but that you have to let go, we live in the now, not in the yesterday which happened to be closer to a century ago. Black power is a term for black superiority, in todays world.

I starred your post by the way. I am open minded and I can put myself into other peoples shoes, it may not be a direct fit but at least I try.

I second the closing of the thread.

*SNIP*

Let's see....how about GIRL power!
No one takes girls seriously. The words don't resonate...nothing to fear.
(This is ATS, so, not likely that anyone will really get it....but what the heck)

White power!
Redundant. Everyone knows whites have the power, so the words mean nothing. No white person is going to go around with THAT on their shirt.

CHINESE POWER!
That is very contemporary, very threatening. Likely to get a response. Save that one, maybe trademark it, get the rights to it. Of course, the Chinese will disregard all copyright laws.

How about NATIVE AMERICAN POWER!
No, not much power there in the human psyche. NO real reason for the Natives to stir # up, anyway.

Nothing like BLACK POWER to scare the little white girls. How funny humans are. I think humans, generally speaking, are a joke that they aren't smart enough to get.
I get it. HA HA.

F*ck you guys who are still defending white power in comparison to black power. Or those of you putting down African Americans just for the f*ck sake of argument. This thread is BS and it has been settled, the majority (white people) do not find pdiddys statement offensive. People made some good points on here but let it go..... The only people opposing black power on here just want to ruffle feathers. It's about statistics and idiots trying to prove how f*cked up the black community is. F*ck you guys..... Closeeeeee it......

Yes.. Ok.. Nice one on that Rampage that you had there, so tell me again, where is people putting down african americans??.
Are we not allowed to have a debate on such a subject now??..
And saying the F word to a lot of people. including myself is a very rude remark imo.
All we are saying that in 2012 the is no difference.
Its all racist slurs now, and soon it will be classed as such. Dont get mad over such matters....

Why is it "black power" to scare little white girls? What kind of racial epithet is that? Correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't that a way to promote hatred toward blacks for fear of them taking all the white women? That is something I would expect a 'n-word' to say.

You know whats funny, is I see all these racist black dudes banging white girls left and right. Do you know why that is? It's because once the white girl has had a child with a black, the child isn't white because black is the dominate gene therefore thinning out the white population. I read up on the black power websites once and awhile, I like to consider myself a somewhat well rounded individual. Just like the thugs that committed the "knoxville horror" said that they killed that white girl because she wanted to die from violent black sex. Disgusting.

WOW, I don't want to insult your intelligence but I never mentioned the crime statistics (if I did, please paste and copy exactly what I wrote or provide a link, please and thank you, if you fail to do so, you will have acknowledged yourself as a liar and a person that likes to stir # up). If I were a huge Dick, and I can be, I would bring up the FBI crime statistics and other medical journals that show... well, you know, those uncomfortable facts that everyone is afraid to discuss in fear of being labeled a racist. You know damn well it is true, step through that denial, that would also help with your personal growth, something I now feel that you need severely.

I was agreeing with you on my post and you turn around and attack me and put words in my mouth again... People like you are the ones that give other black people a bad name. Pat yourself on the back.
