Yo yo yo, toby, your angst is entirely misdirected. Let's look at some fun FACTS, shall we?

In the 25-29 age group about 1 in 13 black men in the United States are in prison.

Compare that with about 1 in 100 white men in the United States being in prison.

"Your" people are doing mighty fine, no?

Question Ellis...

Should Latin people have an advocacy organization? Should Asian people have an advocacy organization? Should Black people have an advocacy organization? Should White people have an advocacy organization?

Each cultural, ethinic, and race group in the United States serves as an advocacy group for its members...

Perhaps the folks you encountered are a bit peeved about their children being blamed for slavery, their children being denied scholarships due to affirmative action, and their children being put down for a generation or more for no reason other than the white color of their skin.

Perhaps... you need to examine a subject from all sides... I am not for a minute advocating some of the "white supremacy hate" that you evidently encountered, however for more than a generation some innocent kids have been made to carry a burden that shouldn't be theirs to carry...and who is looking out for them? Where is their national organization and advocacy group?

The folks he encountered, I can almost assure you, are nothing of the sort. These are the same kinds of people who hated black people when they were in chains, or when they were eating at separate restaurants and going to separate schools. Look, I don't like affirmative action and any racial distinctions made by the government any more than you seem to, but this is completely different. These people would hate black people no matter what the government did, or what scholarship some school handed out was. They may offer these up as reasons, so they seem a bit more rational, but its not true. Talk to a racist. After you get through his shield of b.s. crap about scholarships and all that, you will find out the real reasons for their hate...and they're petty, ignorant, and monstrous.

I don't know how to delete my posts. Man, I really screwed this up. I edited the wrong one. I was trying to quote from IntheNet's third paragraph regarding affirmative action and scholarships, but it got all screwed up. Anyway, that is what I'm addressing in my post.

Don't worry Ricky, we all do it

Look, I don't see it as ' I want to be with my own people.' The whole point is that we are all people. One day when I was in kindergarten, I came home and told my mom that I made a new best friend. My mom asked me to describe him and I just said short, dark, curly hair. We went and looked in the yearbook (which we already had) and we finally found him. My mom asked "why didn't you just say that he was black?" I didn't know why. I just didn't know race then. And man, I would do anything to be like that again. Just not acknowledge race. The world would be so much better if we were like that. We are all human beings. We all have the same emotions, the same dreams, and the same hopes. That makes us all the same.

Can I see why racists could be mad about how society hates them and blames a lot of the problems in the past on them, but tough. Fix it. Don't complain about it and continue to the things that people don't like you for in the first place.

This country was all ready founded when it was "founded"...

MLK wasn't for "his people", he was for "all people"... his history is very interesting, and he had some transgressions, but his overall message was brilliant... he has to be one of the premier Americans of all time...

All discrimination at its core has ignorance. Unfortunately, human ignorance like human intelligence has no bounds. On the bright side, from antedotal point of view, I have seen a lot of changes in our society, I can only hope that we march forward.. I think John Lennon's Imagine spoke to this ideal.. no, John, you aren't the only one...

Excellent point. I can't believe I am reading insinuations by some members on here that there would be less violence if there were more white people and less black people... are you people serious? You should never judge a person based on the color of their skin, race or any other physical characteristic. That is the most ignorant and absurd thing I have ever heard. It is people like this that are the "REAL" problem with society. I would not want to be judged by the actions of other's based upon skin color or race... that is just ludicrous. We are all one race the human race!

Easy, Babe...

Like any site, we have the occasional attention getters who crave our indignation. Posts like kirby's just makes us wonder what a "kirby" is, nothing more...
