Just wondering. Just a random question. Even though blacks are like 14% of the population they are like 40% of the crime rate. Excuse me, WHY do "WE" need to defund the cops? And who is "we"?
They suck up most of the welfare and commit most of the violence

When you say "focus", I'm not sure what you refer to. I do know that the communists definitely used slavery as a means to divide Americans, especially during the 1960s. They desire domestic friction, it's worked wonderfully for them.

This division has really been ramped it up the last few years and I would say it's intentional, even as black Americans are seeing many succeed and become millionaires and billionaires. Now you have some Americans looking to profit from these angles, ambulance chasers, if you will. China and other enemies certainly have a discreet hand in some of these activities I'm sure.

Come to Canada, I can't think of one prominent black citizen. Now THAT is racism that goes with abuses in a socialist, central system. How ironic it is that, when so many say they want to move to Canada. They haven't heard stories from people like myself I suppose...
Bullshit. There are 36,000 blacks worth 1 million or more out of a population of 47 million. The division has not be ramped up, America has never been united and only the delusional believe what you have posted.
Funny how conservatives care more about blacks than liberal blacks.
There has always been race on race crimes.

Seems you like Hispanics since they mainly look like whites.

Tramp, if he has his way, Tramp wanted to defund the cops by 500 billion, defund Medicare and Medicaid.

And McConnell "let the states go bankrupt"

if the 2 above means not defunding the cops I don't know what is.

I will never cease to be amazed how much attention 13%-14% of the population gets.
1. I am 83 years old.

2. I have lived every second here in California.

3. Until the 1950s, people here pretty much ignored the African American population.

4. Then in the 1950s, African Americans started to move into Caucasian neighborhoods. The Caucasians did not resist. They simply moved to other areas that were being developed.

5. Why the focus on African Americans? Well, I guess there are several reasons.

a. Their leaders started to demand more equality. Until the 1950s, African Americans in Los Angeles accepted being restricted to certain neighborhoods, being denied most jobs, and being excluded from most public accommodations.

b. Many leaders of that community started to preach "The squeaky wheel gets the oil/grease." (One result was the Supreme Court overruling school segregation.)

c. There was an awakening among a growing number of Caucasians that things had to change. After President Kennedy's death, President Johnson sought to honor his memory by pushing for Civil Rights laws.

d. During the days of de facto segregation, most Caucasians were not affected by crime committed by African Americans, for the latter went to certain areas of Los Angeles to work but were expected to return to "their" areas in the evening.

6. Before the Internet, Americans were most influenced by motion pictures. Many producers started to give us movies showing African Americans in a positive light, This helped to galvanize the younger generation of Caucasians into demanding more reforms. (Their success was shown in 2008 with the historic election of Senator Obama,)

BOTTOM LINE: Why is there such a focus on them? Because they are too important to ignore.

A lot of truth in that.

Let's see who bites.

Watching TV commercials today, you'd swear blacks are 60%-70% of the population.

I'm not saying ignore, I'm saying I believe they receive much more attention than other groups considering their population size.

No we don't. You white racists simply want to bitch about blacks. You will find any reason to do so. Thus far I've seen numerous threads where you whining white regressive losers bitch about reparations. The there are the threads about black names. Threads about black hair. Threads about what we eat. That's all some of you do. And the most pathetic are the white females like Mary and tipsy, old burned out bitches mad because they lost their looks so they have to catch a white mans attention some way, so they bitch about us.

I don't think blacks ever accepted that anywhere.

Reparations are not the answer. Almost every race on Earth has been the slave to another race at some time or another.

However, what the OP fails to take into consideration are a few things:
1) Racism in certain parts of the US - especially the south - has been endemic in the culture for eons. To deny otherwise is just silly
2) For a long time black people were denied a lot of things that would have helped them get a leg up. Jews were the same. There were certain golf clubs or clubs in general the refused membership purely based on skin colour or ethnicity.
3) This lead to a lot of disadvantages in terms of schooling etc and having the tools to make a better life for themselves. So of course some of them gave up or became cynical and just went 'fuck it'.
4) However, the biggest issue I have with whites like Mary et al - Meathead and The Flash are classic examples of this - is the "whites invented this and did that" conversation and somehow that makes them (Meathead and Mary) somehow superior. And they somehow think that, by osmosis, it includes them. Yes, Fleming invented penicillin, Bell the phone, and Edison - well just about everything else it seems. But remember this Meathead, Flash and Mary - YOU had NOTHING to do with it. Stop riding on the coat tails of others. Whitey tends have this thing whereby an individual - sometimes going against the grain of the times (think Galileo saying the Earth went around the sun, not the other way around) does these amazing things, and somehow the rest of the race of that person deserve a pat on the back, too. For what? Being the right skin colour? Fuck off, go and make your own mark on the world without denigrating others. Dipshits.
In fact, it was people like you who probably tried to stop them doing what they were doing. The inventors were the liberals of their time - not the conservatives trying to 'conserve' the status quo - ie the Church, politicians, land owners etc.

With all due respect, most African Americans accepted de facto segregation in the South and de jure segregation in the North.

Yes, it is accurate that some African Americans have always sought equality, but the vast majority accepted the situation and did the best they could under the circumstances.

After World War I, there WERE "disturbances" in some Northern cities when African American soldiers returning from Europe demanded their jobs back and demanded less segregation. But generally speaking, they had to wait until the Civil Rights laws of the 1960s (even in the North) before there were any major breakthroughs.

And in the South, segregation was usually enforced and most African Americans just accepted it as part of their lives. Of course, some people like Ms. Rosa Parks got sick of it and we all know her role in helping to weaken and finally defeat segregation.

Have a nice day!

I happen to be black with both sides of my family from the south. Blacks did not accept segregation. Whites used intimidation and violence to make things the way they were. The great migration happened because blacks got tired of the shit. But what blacks found was that segregation was enforced in both the north and south.

Actually reparations are the answer. And that all races have been slaves excuse is weak.
Reparations in America go beyond slavery. First, because slavery did not end in America in 1865 and second because the atrocities done to blacks have really never stopped. But that's where my disagreement ends with what you wrote because the rest of what you wrote was spot on. Well said indeed.

It is not my superiority that is obvious, but the inferiority of a specific race that is a failure not only in America, but wherever they are found.

Only once coming to terms with it without the monolithic constraints of political correctness, can this be addressed. Otherwise it's like a Monty Python skit where everyone who is not with you is called a witch.

Sorry snowflake, but that's gospel.

Blacks are compelling because they're primitive.
In the United States of America, they are US citizens. This is really simple.
So, we have primitive US citizens. So does Brazil and sub-Sahara African countries have little else.
Nope we don't. But what we do have are "primitive US citizens" that post on USMB that think they speak for all white folks just because they can get online and post racist smack. You need to get with the fucking program. The country is leaving you people behind. Biden 306.
