Re: I, Racist

The problem in the African American community is less about how they are treated by white folk than it is about how they treat each other. Black people are dying in far greater numbers at the hands of other black people than by white folks.

There are plenty of examples of people who choose to be responsible for their own lives, education, work, business, finances, relationships, and faith making something of themselves that makes the "blame white racism" attitude to no effect. Quit blaming others for your problems and look in the mirror.

There is a systematic cultural issue in the African American community---babies out of wedlock (70% of all AA Babies born are to single moms), high disproportionate rates of crime and violence, high rates of unemployment and poverty. White people are not to blame. There is cultural acceptance of criminal behavior and immorality. Black folk suffer in large part because of their own actions.

The black community as a whole will not progress until they stop pushing the responsibility of their lives on others and take responsibility for themselves.

Re: I, Racist

Black folks don't even trust each other. I go to inner city situations as well as black majority communities and in each case the businesses and homes have barred windows, razor wire, security systems, and other sorts of ways to protect themselves from criminals. In white majority neighborhoods these things aren't found. Explain that.

Re: I, Racist

After you read this, can you deny that racism and white privilege exist?

My question was in response to yours about "white privilege". So, are you white?

No. Do you feel guilt for being white?

Do you feel a white person who does not feel "white guilt" is racist?

Do you believe there is "Japanese privilege" in Japan, or "black privilege" in Congo?
