Poverty, Stress, and Achievement: What Role Does Racism Play? | racismreview.com
*yawn* Tell you what, when us "white folk" can get free schooling and legally steal jobs from more qualified "black folk" in the US ... then whine about it, until then you are just spouting off hot air.
White people, some of you more spe-cvifically are in such a huge state of denial and so ultra-sensitive-defensive about the race issue[our course when it shows the wrongs and effects of white racism against peoples of color] that one has o wonder is there some kind of mental illness at play here.
Did I hear someone say "Freudian projection"???
The one thing I find amazing about all the racism stuff, is how little responsibility is being taken by those who seem to accept that is all they are, victims of racism.
I am probably not going to be popular for saying this, but I think the black culture needs to turn away from the racism crutch and start working a little harder on personal responsibility. Responsibility for their families, their education and their lives. And it needs to start with the home environment. As it is rare for a child to grow up to succeed when their parents or parent seek to only blame. Children are the future of this nation, and it costs nothing to teach them self respect, determination and ambition. Even those living in poverty can afford to do that.
Are yu kidding me? Why would Charlie Bass want to focus on illegitimate kids missing fathers, crack head street professions and the importance of chrome rims over child support when there are white people to blame?
You can't blame them for doing that, and not all folks of poverty and color do that. many of thos kids (now adults) have been raised that way. That is what I meant by start at home, then worry about out there. And if people like Charles were half as passionate about educating folks on how to be better parents, better teachers and better examples, what you describe above would not be so prevalent.
Don't get me wrong, I do believe racism exsists, no doubt. I have seen it myself. But blame never fixes anything. Change does.
I just don't get it. You hate the majority people in this country, the people that establishes this country and you label yourself an African first........ why stay here? Africa is a huge place with plenty of natural resources, I would happily put tax dollars into a plane ticket and 50 grand for relocation of every person that wants to refer to themselves as an African-american. Take that African from Kenya with you and don't forget his family.
I know enough real Africans that refer to themselves as Americans and are proud of their new country that think black Americans are whining, lazy babies....... they don't care to have you around either.
