Seriously, people want so desperately to be unique and special!
To deny that the cultures are not separate and distinct is naive at best; about the issue in general here in the US somewhere kids are getting the
idea that to just be who you are if white is something to apologize or feel guilty about. I think that place as someone mentioned before is through
school and in the media. Vilifying “white” America.
I am all for us just being Americans but the minorities are the ones who want to hyphenate themselves and demand to be treated as special and
Respect our culture! They scream from the rooftops while pissing on the culture others.
Fine, I'm all for one's freedom to dress speak and conduct oneself in whatever manner you chose until it infringes on the rights of another.
However, to constantly cry out, “I am special. Look at me!” by ones dress, diction and mannerisms then cry foul when people point out the
simple differences seems a bit hypocritical to me.
Surely you can see the socioeconomic differences in the relative success and failures of the different races in the world? We could argue till the end
of time that religious indoctrination and European imperialism killed Africa but it’s been a long time since the whites left Africa to the Aficans.
It doesn’t seem to be going to swell. I do not believe the failure of the cultures in Africa is related institutional racism any longer.
Institutional racism is dead especially in America; even with all the legal advantages minorities enjoy - especially blacks in America, they seem to
be going down the ladder of racial and cultural success instead of up. Gotta ask yourself why?
The glass ceiling has been broken a black man is President FFS - what other reason is there for the disparity than culture?
The special status under the law is the major issue with race in America. It’s a hate crime when Zimmerman shoots a black kid and it’s all the
rage in the news. A white kid is set on fire in Kansas City by some black kids…crickets.
Until we get past all this special status and protections under the law and start looking at each person as an individual rather than a member of that
group we will never have true equality - sorry. Can't
Well sometimes you have to understand the "why" of some things.
White people are almost seen as sore winners. In America white people you won way back in the 17th century! You were the top dogs, you were the
Chicago Bulls, the Miami Heat. Your team was stacked and you were winning every championship. What happens to teams in this position? Eventually
people start rooting against you! Its a part of human nature to root for the under dogs!
Now how would the Yankees or Bulls or Heat look if they came on television crying that "everyone hates us, it's not fair!" We would look at them
and tell them stop whining, enjoy their success or give up the game like some sissies.
Sir what you and others are doing is whining in the eyes of minorities. You're telling us that you can't handle being champs.
And no the roof wasn't blown off because Obama was elected. Now if a black guy with tattoos and dreads is elected we can agree on the ceiling being
smashed. Besides look at what Obama has to cope with. He has white men who before he took office, vowed to fight ANYTHING he proposes. Even at the
risk of destroying everyone. They will hide behind the "its not his color but his policies". Stop lying...his policies are Republican. The racist of
this country are so insane we have a black President they are blind to the fact that he's a Republican! He hasn't passed ONE policy, not ONE that.
Benefits the majority of black people but he's treated as if he proposed a Bill giving every black poerson a new house.
