Whites are real quick to tell us who aren't about how they don't see racism in America. Therefore because they don't see it, it cannot exist. But we who are not white do not have the same experience and whites can't force it to be the same just because you don't like hearing it.

So let me repost this information. It begins in the year 2000 for those who always make the excuse of how such things are in the past.

Cost Of Racism: U.S. Economy Lost $16 Trillion Because Of Discrimination, Bank Says

Nationwide protests have cast a spotlight on racism and inequality in the United States. Now a major bank has put a price tag on how much the economy has lost as a result of discrimination against African Americans: $16 trillion.

Since 2000, U.S. gross domestic product lost that much as a result of discriminatory practices in a range of areas, including in education and access to business loans, according to a new study by Citigroup.

Specifically, the study came up with $16 trillion in lost GDP by noting four key racial gaps between African Americans and whites:

$13 trillion lost in potential business revenue because of discriminatory lending to African American entrepreneurs, with an estimated 6.1 million jobs not generated as a result

$2.7 trillion in income lost because of disparities in wages suffered by African Americans

$218 billion lost over the past two decades because of discrimination in providing housing credit

And $90 billion to $113 billion in lifetime income lost from discrimination in accessing higher education



There are "individual" racists in every nation, including the United States.
Prior to the 2008 financial bust and recession, blacks very vocally complained that banks wouldn't lend them the money to purchase a home, claiming it was racist.
The fact was, they couldn't really afford to own the home they purchased (home cost, property taxes, utilities, et cetera) and in the end, because they really couldn't afford to own a house, defaulted on their loans and because of this, we had that 2008 debacle.
The policy wasn't racist. It was that those that when someone wishes to purchase a home, they have to show that they have a steady job with good pay, enough money to provide a sufficient down payment, a good amount in a bank account and assets that could be taken, should you default, so that they make up most of the loss.
That's not racist. It's a money issue.
I'm not black, but we couldn't afford a home for many years. My pay was mediocre, my bank account the same and not much in assets. Over time, both of us working, pay increases and saving enough money, we were able to afford a house and always ensured that the payments were made.
If we were this rampantly racist nation as you claim, we wouldn't have black congressmen/women, black senators, black mayors, black town councils, black physicists, black astronauts, black military officers (including generals), black business owners, black police officers, blacks in the CIA, FBI and NSA, black physicians, black nurses, black bankers, black teachers and of course....a maximum two term black president who wouldn't have been elected both times he ran, if only minorities voted for him. African blacks, Asians and Hispanics all come here from other nations. Minorities don't flock to Communist nations.
How far you go in this nation is the same for all, "how much effort you put in to obtain your goals." In school, study hard and into the night, in employment, reflect a regular positive attitude towards others, being an employee role model and you will advance. If you are seeking employment, learn all you can about the company that you want to hire you, dress better than others, putting in for the job and add a dash of luck (for no matter what we do, life isn't always fair and we don't always get what we want).

The system is racist in America.

As a person currently living in this country, with a proper understanding and context of American history, the answer is clear, you are absolutely correct.

Meanwhile, outside of woke race card pimping LibTardia, black folks achieve success...they attend Ivy League Universities, land powerful high paying jobs and are elected President Of The United States Of America.

Thank you. take them away from the public school system and then, you realize education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Meanwhile the Democrats are the bitches of the Teachers Union and continue to make excuses for their failure by playing identity politics.
Its funny how black kids who get to attend private schools tend to do so much better. You would think they would do worse being surrounded by racists.

What people dont like is constant negativity in a place where there should be opportunity. You keep preaching to young people that they have no hope and often they will tend to give up. The key to ending poverty is education and teaching discipline. The public school system has failed miserably, but I bet those same very people can come up with some numbers to prove racism and discrimination.
First of all, we have a crisis going on right now... there are still lots of kids sitting home instead of being in school because the Teachers Union doesnt want to go back. Lets get the kids back in school, and lets work on school vouchers and ways of getting these kids into better schools and better environments
Whites like you need to stop telling yourselves these lies. Nobody teaches black kids they have no hope. The problem with whites such as yourself is that you refuse to accept your role in the problem. What we teach is how to succeed despite hurdles set forth by whites that whites do not face.

The key to ending poverty is not paying black men 87 for every dollar a white man makes and black women 63 cents for every dollar a white man makes regardless of educational attainment. School vouchers are not the answer, equal funding for every school is.


Nobody teaches black kids they have no hope.

You sure about that? When you think your biggest threat is getting shot by a police officer while doing nothing, because every show on TV is basically telling people police are hunting them down, when the actual probability is about the same as hitting the lottery, it creates a lot more negativity. Words are powerful, they can cause people to burn down a whole city, loot stores and fight with police. Words can create self fulfilling prophecy.

You have no Idea what my role in the problem is.You can start by realizing the world has more than one problem, and all people are not that bad based on their skin tone.

Other countries with problems we have here have established Truth and Reconciliation Commissions. But American exceptionalism means we don't need one. Instead we can reconcile by telling the affected people how they have a victim mentality and that people within their group are faking the problem for their own personal gain.

Yet if someone says that America is a racist country after comparing work done by Australia , Canada and South Africa, then you catch a case of cray cray. So why is it that our government has not created a truth and reconciliation commission to deal with the violations that have occurred? There is no excuse for this. Nor is there a statute of limitations.

I am black. I am not only sure, I will say again that it is not being done. I know the world has more than one problem, so save the stupid comments for family members. The fact is you are repeating lies to yourself because you don't want to face the truth. Nothing you say is true. Stop acting like you know more about being black than a black person.

Words cause people to not see reports that state 97 percent of the protests were not violent and that most of the violence came from white agitators and police.

Other countries with problems we have here have established Truth and Reconciliation Commissions. But American exceptionalism means we don't need one. Instead we can reconcile by telling the affected people how they have a victim mentality and that people within their group are faking the problem for their own personal gain.

Yet if someone says that America is a racist country after comparing work done by Australia , Canada and South Africa, then you catch a case of cray cray. So why is it that our government has not created a truth and reconciliation commission to deal with the violations that have occurred? There is no excuse for this. Nor is there a statute of limitations.

Whites are real quick to tell us who aren't about how they don't see racism in America. Therefore because they don't see it, it cannot exist. But we who are not white do not have the same experience and whites can't force it to be the same just because you don't like hearing it.

So let me repost this information. It begins in the year 2000 for those who always make the excuse of how such things are in the past.

Cost Of Racism: U.S. Economy Lost $16 Trillion Because Of Discrimination, Bank Says

Nationwide protests have cast a spotlight on racism and inequality in the United States. Now a major bank has put a price tag on how much the economy has lost as a result of discrimination against African Americans: $16 trillion.

Since 2000, U.S. gross domestic product lost that much as a result of discriminatory practices in a range of areas, including in education and access to business loans, according to a new study by Citigroup.

Specifically, the study came up with $16 trillion in lost GDP by noting four key racial gaps between African Americans and whites:

$13 trillion lost in potential business revenue because of discriminatory lending to African American entrepreneurs, with an estimated 6.1 million jobs not generated as a result

$2.7 trillion in income lost because of disparities in wages suffered by African Americans

$218 billion lost over the past two decades because of discrimination in providing housing credit

And $90 billion to $113 billion in lifetime income lost from discrimination in accessing higher education

May I suggest Russia.

Other countries with problems we have here have established Truth and Reconciliation Commissions. But American exceptionalism means we don't need one. Instead we can reconcile by telling the affected people how they have a victim mentality and that people within their group are faking the problem for their own personal gain.

Yet if someone says that America is a racist country after comparing work done by Australia , Canada and South Africa, then you catch a case of cray cray. So why is it that our government has not created a truth and reconciliation commission to deal with the violations that have occurred? There is no excuse for this. Nor is there a statute of limitations.

I was born here. You can leave.
I was born here as well and I don’t hate being here like you do. You’re the one claiming it’s so bad for blacks, you’re excuses are bullshit. You can do anything you want in this country no matter your race or religion, but all you are good at is excuses for your own incompetence.

There are endless excuses for individuals such as you, what most people have learned in life is it’s what you make of it, you on the other hand make yourself out to be a victim because you’re black, GTFU child....

Whites are real quick to tell us who aren't about how they don't see racism in America. Therefore because they don't see it, it cannot exist. But we who are not white do not have the same experience and whites can't force it to be the same just because you don't like hearing it.

So let me repost this information. It begins in the year 2000 for those who always make the excuse of how such things are in the past.

Cost Of Racism: U.S. Economy Lost $16 Trillion Because Of Discrimination, Bank Says

Nationwide protests have cast a spotlight on racism and inequality in the United States. Now a major bank has put a price tag on how much the economy has lost as a result of discrimination against African Americans: $16 trillion.

Since 2000, U.S. gross domestic product lost that much as a result of discriminatory practices in a range of areas, including in education and access to business loans, according to a new study by Citigroup.

Specifically, the study came up with $16 trillion in lost GDP by noting four key racial gaps between African Americans and whites:

$13 trillion lost in potential business revenue because of discriminatory lending to African American entrepreneurs, with an estimated 6.1 million jobs not generated as a result

$2.7 trillion in income lost because of disparities in wages suffered by African Americans

$218 billion lost over the past two decades because of discrimination in providing housing credit

And $90 billion to $113 billion in lifetime income lost from discrimination in accessing higher education

As a person currently living in this country, with a proper understanding and context of American history, the answer is clear, you are absolutely correct.

Meanwhile, outside of woke race card pimping LibTardia, black folks achieve success...they attend Ivy League Universities, land powerful high paying jobs and are elected President Of The United States Of America.

Thank you. take them away from the public school system and then, you realize education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Meanwhile the Democrats are the bitches of the Teachers Union and continue to make excuses for their failure by playing identity politics.
Its funny how black kids who get to attend private schools tend to do so much better. You would think they would do worse being surrounded by racists.

What people dont like is constant negativity in a place where there should be opportunity. You keep preaching to young people that they have no hope and often they will tend to give up. The key to ending poverty is education and teaching discipline. The public school system has failed miserably, but I bet those same very people can come up with some numbers to prove racism and discrimination.
First of all, we have a crisis going on right now... there are still lots of kids sitting home instead of being in school because the Teachers Union doesnt want to go back. Lets get the kids back in school, and lets work on school vouchers and ways of getting these kids into better schools and better environments
Whites like you need to stop telling yourselves these lies. Nobody teaches black kids they have no hope. The problem with whites such as yourself is that you refuse to accept your role in the problem. What we teach is how to succeed despite hurdles set forth by whites that whites do not face.

The key to ending poverty is not paying black men 87 for every dollar a white man makes and black women 63 cents for every dollar a white man makes regardless of educational attainment. School vouchers are not the answer, equal funding for every school is.


Nobody teaches black kids they have no hope.

You sure about that? When you think your biggest threat is getting shot by a police officer while doing nothing, because every show on TV is basically telling people police are hunting them down, when the actual probability is about the same as hitting the lottery, it creates a lot more negativity. Words are powerful, they can cause people to burn down a whole city, loot stores and fight with police. Words can create self fulfilling prophecy.

You have no Idea what my role in the problem is.You can start by realizing the world has more than one problem, and all people are not that bad based on their skin tone.
I am black. I am not only sure, I will say again that it is not being done. I know the world has more than one problem, so save the stupid comments for family members. The fact is you are repeating lies to yourself because you don't want to face the truth. Nothing you say is true. Stop acting like you know more about being black than a black person.

Words cause people to not see reports that state 97 percent of the protests were not violent and that most of the violence came from white agitators and police.


Whites are real quick to tell us who aren't about how they don't see racism in America. Therefore because they don't see it, it cannot exist.

And maybe you should stop making up fantasies like this. Of course whites know racism exists. I dont have to accept racism and hate the whole country at the same time though. maybe blacks like YOU are the same as the woman when gets pulled over for talking on her cell phone.. screams at the cop and calls him a murderer.. right? cause we know all cops are killers, all whites are racists? whites havent done ANYTHING in regards to how people get along.

The fact is that good exists along side of bad. both are true and it exists in all people, but you only seem to see the bad. the root of all your problems are racism because you want to see racism everywhere.
Just because black people are going around smashing old asian men and women in the head and stomping on them, doesn't mean I'm going to accuse the black community of hating asians.
I'm smart enough to know there are white people who don't like asians and might do the same thing and that isn't all blacks. Those are only the very few who have for some reason been radicalized by their hatred and stupidity, and it probably does have a lot to do with seeing racism as a larger thing than the goodness in humanity.

Nationwide protests have cast a spotlight on racism and inequality in the United States. Now a major bank has put a price tag on how much the economy has lost as a result of discrimination against African Americans: $16 trillion.

Since 2000, U.S. gross domestic product lost that much as a result of discriminatory practices in a range of areas, including in education and access to business loans, according to a new study by Citigroup.

Specifically, the study came up with $16 trillion in lost GDP by noting four key racial gaps between African Americans and whites:

$13 trillion lost in potential business revenue because of discriminatory lending to African American entrepreneurs, with an estimated 6.1 million jobs not generated as a result

$2.7 trillion in income lost because of disparities in wages suffered by African Americans

$218 billion lost over the past two decades because of discrimination in providing housing credit

And $90 billion to $113 billion in lifetime income lost from discrimination in accessing higher education
