Getting back to the main point of racism, I think most of us would be liars if we didn't admit that ......if we were walking down the street & approached a group of men of a different race than us, that we would have more fear than if they were from our "tribe." Why we have to pretend that this isn't so any more is just ridiculous, imo.
Admit it & try to solve the problem is a much more realistic approach.
And why is that? Because we tend to be statistical creatures and statistically blacks are far more involved in crime than whites. When I was in HS and college one of my closest friends was black. (He still is
) He came from NY City and his parents scraped the money together with loans and grants and the guy is now an attorney with the Justice Department in Washington DC. And what was your first thought when you read this? Be honest, maybe oh, affirmative action, he may not be that good. Well he is, affirmative action just demeaned his skill. He didn't walk around with his pant dragging talking ebonicis or whatever they call that crap. He buckled down got er done.
In my business we hire blacks as often as we can, statistically, at least for us, the hirable blacks are better employees than the whites. By hirable I mean that really want to work, not the ones that just want you to sign their welfare papers. They are the ones who saw through the liberal
welfare bondage baloney, figured out they could do better, and joined the real world. I bet they vote Republican too!
Get off the whine train and join the rest of us in the melting pot! And read the book "Gifted Hands" the story of the greatest brain surgeon of all time, who grew up in the Detroit projects and yes, also happens to be black.
