    Hmm? Why is it that when blacks "act right" they get accused of "acting white"? Isn't that why most blacks fall back to "acting ghetto"?

    The two factors that keep most blacks from succeeding is peer pressure and institutional racism.

    Everyone makes fun of those who study hard and work toward a better future, and the fact that most blacks hate whites for no reason, and are supported by government programs in support of this belief is the primary reason they never can get ahead.

    When a slick talker with silk suits comes along and becomes President they go ga-ga because that's the best they can expect.

    He speaks their language even though they at one time felt he was an outsider. Obama was never up for the struggle.

    He was just a spoiled only child raised by doting Grandparents who never saw fit to teach him right from wrong. He never had it tough. Now he's the black community's shining example.

    It effects most of us, but in the black community it controls them.

    If you dare to step off the plantation you are deemed not black or an Oreo.

    Clarance Thomas is as black as anyone but he's a traitor. Same with Condi Rice.

    Because they both dared to work within the system and make their own mark outside of the stereotypical black norms, they are outcasts in the black community.

    What would happen if ether of them went to a NAACP meeting?

    Does this kind of institutional racism exist today in the White community?

    What do you really KNOW about what life is like in the Black community?

    My guess is you don't know jackshit about it.

    Have you seen that Spike Lee movie "Get on the Bus"? It's about blacks going to the Million Man March and picking up "brothers" along the way. Naturally they get into discussions about black history and their place in America.
    Along the way they pick up a self professed "Conservative" black and guess what ends up happening to him?

    They kick him off the bus that's what. So the message is you can't be conservative and Black.

    He probably has a point...and how funny that the posters after the OP talked about blacks as if they are retarded.

    I'm going with low IQ's and high testosterone levels.

    If you think blacks do poorly in America, they do much worse in the rest of the world.

    So what you are saying is that its blacks holding blacks back.


    I agree.
