    Let's have the 'race talk' our nation is so in need of folks. It'll never happen in politics and on television. I am a black American, I'm a rarity to a certain degree, I'm a right winger. But I want to have the talk and hope you all do as well. So fire a question pertaining to my community at me and I will answer it to the best of my ability and from my perspective. I'll do the same back if I have a question.

    The time has come...

    Sure I can, that's why I started the thread. You're welcome to ask a question, and don't worry about how you'll be percirved by me or anyone else. It's your observations, state them as such. I won't hold it against you.

    What does the 'black community' mean? No other race gets singled out as a 'community'. I find the term slightly demeaning to the very people it is supposed to support.

    Is it true that a majority of the black community (let's limit it to the under thirty crowd) -- in private conversations with other blacks -- speak disparagingly of white people merely on the basis of race?

    I have heard this claim a good deal from some angry black guys (on this very board in fact), and I don't doubt that there is at least a kernel of truth under-girding it. I just wonder how accurate it really is.

    I believe racism doesn't exist in this country.

    Liberals have shifted the meaning of predjudice and discrimination to racism.

    Well, I kind of agree with you. I can only say what it means to me. For me it means our people as in race in the country we live in as a whole.

    It is demeaning as it lumps us all into a collective, but that isn't how I mean it.

    I would say it is inaccurate. It's true a lot of black folks do just that. But I'm guessing there is a lot of white folks who do the same. Probably about the same % of their populations. It all depends who you are influenced by, as well as experience in life.

    Much like any other human being on this planet.

    How is the term "black community" defined in the black community? Do you consider yourself, as a black conservative, a member of and welcome in the "black community"?
