There is such a gulf between White and Black culture in America that "discussion" of race relations is an impossibility. For example, a recent study found that there was only one common TV program in the top ten watched by Whites and Blacks in this country: Monday Night Football. How are we going to discuss anything without a common frame of reference? It is as if we speak different cultural languages. All reasonable people understand the horrific conditions of slavery that existed in this country for its first 100 years and the denial of civil rights that continued for its second 100 years. However, the rejection of "White" values has created a Black subculture which almost guarantees failure in American society. Multiculturalism may sound like a worthy ideal but, as this term is currently used, it merely provides an excuse for continuing much of the self-destructive behavior in the Black community. Isn't it time to let go of the past?
