My neighbor is Asian but she's from Jamaica and has a Jamaican accent. Her husband has a German accent but he's from Switzerland. The daughter married a hispanic guy.

Their boy is all confused.

This must be a hot topic in the collective right now because I was having a chat just yesterday as well about this with some coworkers. One also mentioned that he saw a right up about how the labels heterosexaul, homosexual and bisexual will begin to disolve as well. Strange stuff!

We are living in historical times.

There should be no confusion. He is a human being on the planet Earth and currently residing in the region know as The United States of America.

Some examples, such as the ones the initial post pointed out, suggest such a double standard but the argument presented before us doesn't address all facets of this topic.

For example, the argument says that blacks have a "whole month" dedicated to "their" history. Well were Black history month not in effect, would we go as far in depth about the influence that blacks have had on this great nation? I would tend to think not, atleast not to any degree significance (IMO). I also wonder if we would re-visit the topic of slavery and its adverse effect on our country (we had a civil war as a result, that's a pretty significant happening). Considering the current climate of "political correctness" (I hate that shyt btw), I think people (particularly those who are not 'black') would gradually move away from the topic altogether because it may be a "non-issue" to them as they are not black. This would lead to slavery and other important topics (i.e. civil rights) to be dropped out of the educational curriculum, which would be a disservice because those are very important topics that represent very critical moments in US history. As far as blacks having BET, aside from the name of the network...what is racist about that channel? Nothing. They have shows which all races can enjoy...I know plenty of whites, hispanics, n asians that laugh their off at comic view. If you have a problem with the name, then create a petition and sue.

This has an ignorance about it that perturbs me just a lil bit...



First of all, yes...I AM EXTREMELY PROUD TO BE BLACK. But that doesn't mean that I think my race is superior to that of any other. I am simply proud of my heritage. I happen to also be EXTREMELY PROUD TO BE CREOLE. Doesn't make me better than anyone...it simply makes me that much more unique.



Secondly, I have never robbed anyone...whoever posted this is treading rough waters when they make this assessment because it implies that only blacks, mexicans and others rob, steal and kill unjustly. Ever heard of the Ku Klux Klan?...they used to (and still do when they can get away with it) hang people because they weren't white. Blacks aren't the only group of people who commit gang violence. So I guess blacks are the only types of drug dealers out there? GET THE OUTTA HERE WITH THAT...You're probably the same type of guy that think Rodney King "deserved" the -whoopin' he received!

There was also a statement about "our neighborhoods" not being safe...try being a black man in a white neighborhood in Jackson, Mississippi, then talk to me about the safety of white neighborhoods. Sure there are black neighborhoods which are not safe (for some) to travel through but were you to look deeper, you would realize that the communities you are thinking of also tend to be impoverished communities. Have nots take from those that have...historically accurate statement. Lets get away from the whole...I'm sick of blacks pulling out the race card. I never pull out the race card but some people need to understand that there are "causes" and "effects" for everything that goes on. Older blacks tend to be racist as a result of their personal life experience. I'm am in no way excusing this mindset but I will ask that when you look at it from their perspective, can you not atleast 'understand' why they may think the way they do ?

Last thing I swear...

The word "******" is not, traditionally, a word used to describe blacks. "******" was, by definition, an ignorant person. The English of old referred to their Irish counterparts as "******s". That is all...

Very well put; I couldn't have said it better myself...:notworthy
