    I find it rather curious as to why Hispanics and or Latinos are considered to be 'ethnic' and not racial groups. That is the official governmental policy. Thus officially maintaining that African-Americans are our largest minority.

    This official doctrine of the African-Americans being our largest minority must have some motivation...as in are there more government programs available for official minorities? There has to be a political reason for this.

    'As of July 2016, White Americans are the racial majority. African Americans(officially) are the largest racial minority, amounting to an estimated 12.7% of the population. Hispanic and Latino Americans amount to an estimated 17.8% of the total U.S. population, making up the largest ethnic minority. The White, non-Hispanic or Latino population make up 61.3% of the nation's total, with the total White population (including White Hispanics and Latinos) being 76.9%.'

    One can hardly watch any T.V. program now where every other person at least is not black. If someone from another country comes to America and turns on the t.v. they would think they were in Africa.

    I can understand the government having a policy of persuading the television networks to properly represent minorities but why not more of a representation of ethnic groups aka latinos or hispanics? Since they are the largest non white population with a 17.8 percentage of the national population. And why does a group (blacks) that only represent l2.7 percent of the population get at least half of all roles on t.v. including commercials. This is certainly not fair to mexican, latinos or hispanics to say the least.

    Another factor at play in this racial/ethnic confusion is that in FBI crime reports latino/hispanics are listed as being part of the white population...further skewering an already confusing FBI reporting of crime and race.

    Not even to mention Affirmative Action? If a large company does not hire at least a work force composed of 15% African Americans they can be sued for racial discrimination. Now how many latinos or hispanics are required to be hired by big companies? Oh my bad....I forgot they are not a race just a ethnic group and thus excluded.

    I don't pay any attention to government or political positions on race and ethnicity. The sooner we live up to Martin Luther King's dream the better off we will be.

    Mayhap one fine day neither national origin nor skin tone will be a distinguishing factor in much of anything, if ancient cultural dissonance between Us and Them and Everyone else can be laid to rest. No color, creed, sex, religion, etc. should buy free tickets to anything.

    Every race is the product of thousands of years of evolution. Yet some naive and ignorant types yearn to destroy all of that--how pitiful so many have been brainwashed into such folly.

    “No one questions the right of the Arabs to have an Arab nation, of China to be a Chinese nation . . . Must we absorb all the people of the world into our society and submerge our historic character as a predominantly Caucasian Western society?” ....Pat Buchanan

    It is true what you or I think matters little............What really matters is the truth and you wish to hide it.

    Any honest person must wonder why there is so much glorification of African-Americans in the movies, on television and via the mass media?

    Our children have been systematically indoctrinated into political correctness in our public schools now for several generations....is it any wonder you see them on this board exhibiting their ignorance and pathetic views of America and its Negroid problem?

    Is negro fatigue sweeping White America?

    It all adds up.

    'The riots in Britain last summer, Morgan Freeman's spiel about Obama opponents being racists, black thugs randomly attacking Whites at state fairs, a series of black mob robberies of convenient stores, and now the Trayton Martin episode along with the subsequent lynch-mob justice towards George Zimmerman add up to what some are calling 'negro fatigue.'

    White people are losing their heightened sensitivity to everything racial. They are beginning to speak their minds in greater numbers. They are starting to fight back against black violent crime and those who excuse it.
    A classic example is the straight-laced Southern Baptist leader who punished Revs Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson with a tongue lashing last week. Specifically he accused them of race baiting.
    Conservative columnist John Derbyshire was a bit more pointed when he penned an article advising young White people to be cautious in the presence of large groups of blacks and to avoid them. Deberyshire was summarily fired from his position at National Review but endeared himself to thousands of grateful readers who appreciate his stark honesty.
    Town Hall's Doug Giles threw his bit in the fray, writing that "blacks can murder whites, and it won't make national news."
    Emerging is a new phrase, "negro fatigue."
    The term is a bit misleading. White Americans are not tired of black people. Rather, they are fed up with dishonesty and the phony 'racist' stigma that is attached. Aside from Hollywood exaggeration White racism is virtually non-existent.
    I prefer the phrase, "White fatigue."
    Like "White flight," white fatigue describes a reaction of White people to black crime and violence. It's also a response to institutional racial policies that intentionally punish White people.
    White people are tired of being labeled 'racist.' They are weary of hateful black-on-White violence going unchecked. White people are tired of watching entire cities, such as Detroit, collapse when the White infrastructure is removed only to have blight blamed on external causes.

    They are weary of Somali immigrants gravitating towards violent crime. They are fed up with historical revisionism that ignores overt black complicity to slavery. They are tired of being lied to and tired of pretending the lies are true.
    White people are tired of the TSA monitoring harmless little old ladies at airport terminals while the real terror is plaguing our neighborhoods. It's actually safer to get on an airliner than to enter a convenient store in many cities. Yet law enforcement is concentrated at the airport.

    White people are tired of EBT cards and black farmers claiming huge settlements from White taxpayers. They are tired of historical symbols, such as the Confederate flag, being demonized. They are weary of a racist Attorney General who is looking out for 'my people' rather than upholding the Constitution. They are increasingly tired of Barack Obama.

    White people are fatigued by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the New Black Panther Party. They are tired of the media giving them a pass. They are tired of obnoxious black patrons who refuse to tip, then hurl claims of racism when service is substandard. They are weary of being told that diversity is a strength.

    There is a weariness among White people of being passed over for jobs, promotions and education to satisfy Affirmative Action. They are tired of entrance exams being dumbed down to accommodate those who could not compete. They are frustrated by the self-censoring media that often refuses to provide racial profiling of even the most violent of criminals. They are tired of their kids being subjected to physical and sexual abuse on school buses and in schools while society turns a politically-correct blind eye.

    White people are suffocated by historical revisionism being served in cinema via Red Tails, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Help and a host of other Hollywood productions. They are tired of being saddled with White guilt, White privilege and White racism. They are tired of their monumental contributions to civilization being overlooked and their culture being overrun.

    They grow fatigued when White people, like George Zimmerman and Bernard Goetz, are subjected to a flurry of black fists only to be called 'racist' for having the audacity to defend themselves.

    The list can (and does) go on.
    Call it what you will, negro fatigue or White fatigue. Either way it describes an awakening of White Americans to the menace of black crime and to the silliness of pretending it doesn't exist.'

    Can anyone say ....Naive? Actually what you say demonstrates many worse things...which you acquired by being nurtured in a government psych operation...other wise known as your local public school.

    "The liberal intellectual is not wholly to blame for hismisunderstanding of ‘racism’, and his often emotionaldenunciation of anything that appears so chauvinistic,for after all, in this cosmopolitan era, he himself moreoften than not has associated with people of adifferent ethnic background than his own, whom herecognizes as having nothing more than a superficialdifference from his own kin. If he is a universitystudent or graduate he is apt to be even fanatical inhis scorn of racism, since here, in the seats of higherlearning, must be positioned minds of great scope andunderstanding, which have no patience with out-datedbrute concepts. And, of course, if one is particularlyinterested in the subject, there is an array of literatureand opinions presented in everything from the pressto scholarly thick volumes, to confirm the notion thatracism is primitive, unsophisticated, and has no placein the modern world.

    I shall hereby disprove these notions, and showthat they are based on nothing more thanemotional sentimentalism, supported bydistorted facts, that have no meaning to a logicalmind. In so doing we need have no fear of being castin bad company, since Lincoln, Madison, Jefferson,Monroe, Jackson, Grant, Clay, Webster, Douglas, eventhe composer Wagner, are some of the men who tooksimilar stands.......Carolyn Yeager
