    That is quote from black economics professor Walther Williams from a Rush Limbaugh radio show he hosted a while ago. Can anyone help me figure out what he meant. Thanks

    Unemployment is pretty easy on folks allowing them to wait for the cush job I agree.

    Brutus, would you support a system more like the big government land grants on the 19th century?

    Perhaps the modern grants would be like you take uneremployment tyoe work anyplace we will subsidize your income for a year?

    Excuse me if I sound racist but why do african americans always go back to the slavery issue, first of all, they weren't the only people in history to be enslaved. At one time or another every race in existence has been under forced enslavement, but you don't hear anyone else refering to slavery for any reason. And besides it may have gotten pretty bad as a slave in early america but it wasn't as if they were being lined up and forced to fight for their lives against unsurmountable odds for instance as the gladiators from ancient rome, most of them started out as slaves. In fact if I were black I would be proud of my slavery heritage, the only reason they were used in america was because they were stronger, more resistant to disease, and they did better work. Bottom line we've all been slaves before, african americans were nothing special, except they were the best workers. A reputation that seems to have taken quite a blow as of late.

    Has to do with segregation and overhearing racist white folks in bars.

    Why did grandparents still identify with the mother country they never stepped foot in? Because they grew up in a ghetto full of one minority translating for their parents.

    Our inability to assimilate the black man into culture and isolate him in ghettos thanks to white flight is amazing.

    The black man doesn't want to assimilate because that would mean being an Uncle Tom.

    Yes sir. I will split it with you.

    How about "As it is difficult to want to be part of a culture which ridicules you the black man resists blending into the larger American culture"

    Everybody else, other then Muslims, have had no problem assimulating.

    So what do you think is the problem?

    Could it be that massive chip on their shoulder?
