    In a 2007 article co-authored by Bill Cosby, titled, Blacks must drop victimhood and reclaim dignity

    Cosby said the following:

    “It is time to think positively and act positively. A people armed with the will to want to get better, armed with the will to win, and armed with knowledge of the past and present, can move forward and take action, succeed, and reclaim their dignity.”

    Practically all Americans know who Bill Cosby is.

    Mr. Cosby has spoken forcefully and often about the need for every individual to take responsibility for his own actions, suggesting quite strongly, that by doing so, each person’s efforts will take him as far as his capabilities allow.

    Black author Shelby Steele said the following:

    “we must acknowledge one of the most profound achievements in recent human history: the death of white supremacy. ...Here was an event far more world-altering than the collapse of communism”...

    …today racism swims upstream…it no longer stunts the lives of blacks.

    Shelby Steele goes on to point out that black victimology has become an “enormous source of power for the left since the 1960’s.”

    Dr. Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institute is a prolific author and economist renowned for extensive research, heavily laced with “empirical evidence”

    Much of the evidence presented by Thomas Sowell supports the idea that “black progress was much more positive prior to the significant rise of the welfare state, and prior to the era of affirmative action.”

    The huge majority of Americans are people of good will.

    For the last 40 years or so, America has in very large measure, been color-blind.
    Another of Thomas Sowell's themes is "to show the painful but steady rise of blacks in the US against heavy odds before massive intervention by government programs, a rise that contradicts some popular assumptions."

    The situation in America is not perfect, but considering opportunity, and the wealth that minorities have obtained, which dwarfs most minorities elsewhere, the time really is past to continue using victimology.

    Completing high school, making one's self valuable at the workplace, and making good responsible decisions is still the way to get one's share of the American Dream.

    We don't all have the capability to end up rich, but we can still get sufficiently ahead.

    Corporations and other outside forces do not keep us down.

    The men above and most of the minorities who persist day after day, to inch ahead little by little, like a majority of the population has always had to do, know that the leaders of the powerful POVERTY INDUSTRY have wielded, as Shelby Steele said, an “enormous source of power for the left since the 1960’s.”

    We all are, wherever we have put ourselves.

    Let’s end the boo-hoo movement today.

    Hmm.. Speaking of.. Has anyone heard anything of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton since the election ended? What will they do with themselves now that political equality has been achieved?

    Let's not get our hopes up. Of course, they'll be back. Charles Ogletree, on Obama's short list for Attorney General, says it's not good enough because he is "biracial" -- only half black. Only an unmitgated optimist would believe this would end the blame game and victimization.

    Are you joking? White males took over the boohoo movement a few years ago.

    The boo-hoo movement has been energized with Obama and the Democrats taking over the government. They need perpetual victims that rely on the government to stay in power.

    Seriously? That's what you think of black people? I can't say it surprises me and it probably doesn't surprise them. Did you notice the faces at McCain's concession speech...99.9% anglo saxon. The scorn toward anyone not "Republican" is obvious.

    I was watching this show "Jacked" on A&E. It documents the ATTF. Auto Theft Task Force, who searches for stolen vehicles somewhere in the northeast. Two shows last night i watched, all the car jackers were black. Six in total.

    Many of them, yes. It's a sad situation. Come down South if you don't believe me. (You do know I'm not white and I'm not a Republican, right???)
