    Your surrender is accepted, though I had no doubt you would.

    Better yet, quit wearing your black epidermis to interviews.

    When I was younger, I worked in construction. Being a hobbyist musician, I also let my hair grow as long as it wanted to grow. One time, right after Iraq war one started and construction ground to a halt, my father-in-law set me up with an interview for a company that provided leak testing for underground gasoline tanks. I dressed nice and wore a long ponytail to the interview.

    First, the receptionist asked me if I was an Indian. There's no Indian blood in my ancestry and my hair wasn't black. I guess it was just her taking a shot. Then I met the company President briefly who wore a sour expression before turning me over to two interviewers that spent a half hour telling me how bad the job was and why I wouldn't like to have said job.

    I really got the impression that they might have hired me if I had showed up with a crew-cut. I no longer wear my hair long, but my beard is long. If I needed to find another job, I would shave it off and grow it back once everyone got to know me.

    But what the Hell would I do if I was black?

    Powerful liberal whiteys think blacks are still niggers, and that blacks are stupid so they shouldn't be expected to have personal responsibility. Furthermore, powerful whitey businesses should hire just anyone off the street (especially if they're black) no matter how stupid they are. In fact they shouldn't even have to fill out any paperwork, just start work within the hour.

    Wow this is pretty bad. Both of you are nastier than the discussion merits.

    I'm sorry to have to say this, but get over it.

    Hundreds of thousands of black families have managed to, and they are doing just fine.

    The freedom to succeed is what you make it. MANY have done well with that choice, so by their mere existence, that negates the "Slavery is the cause of all CURRENT (MODERN/TODAY/NOT 3 DECADES AGO) problems"
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Logically, the fact that some blacks have have succeeded does not negate the proposition that racism, past and present, makes it more difficult for blacks to succeed than it is for whites to succeed.

    I don't recall saying anything about racism.

    I mentioned... S L A V E R Y as a response to yet another slavery whine.

    That would fall under the "racism past" category.

    But yeah, how about all that whining about their whole race being sold into human bondage. What a bunch of babies.

    Most I know are kind of tired of that used as an excuse to not take personal initiative. It's the eternal excuse for everything. I'll bet most blacks don't even know if and when discrimination was involved. Sure there's some discrimination, hell I'll bet my white sons have been discriminated against for having on the wrong tee shirt, wearing their pants too low, their long hair, and maybe even for being white when the employer was trying to make quota. Neither has had luck finding a job.

    This discrimination claim is always pulled out as the ultimate debate winning point. Well it doesn't work on me...I reject it.
