    Just admit you don't like Obama because he's black. His policies, taxes, economics, health care reform, banking... all that crap is wa-aaay over your bigoted little pinheads.

    Just admit you don't like having a BLACK MAN in the WHITE HOUSE.

    Stop being such scared little cowards and say what you want.
    Not until you finally admit you're an unemployed pedophile living in your mom's basement.

    Re: Black unemployment: Highest in 27 years

    Black un-enemployment is highest in 27 years?......WHAT!!!!

    Topic should read....."BLACK EDUCATION IS HIGHEST OF ALL TIME"

    And it's their own faults - nobody elses. In todays world, anyone can make what-ever they choose of themselves.

    If the Mexicans, Cubans, Haitians, Guatimalans, Muslims, People from India come to America and find work, get Educations. Why can't those American born Black's do the same.....Reason - Looking for Handouts.

    The majority of Blacks choose to be lazy, and cared for by, and through the Goverment.
    Thus part of the financial problem situation we as a nation are in today.

    I have no pity for any self made Ignorant Liberal Bastard.

    You do realize that there was no United States prior to 1776? Try reading some actual history vice political agenda doctrines. Just a hint.

    Are you at all aware that To Be a Slave is a children's book? That can only mean two things: 1) You're still in jr. high and on this forum trying to act like an adult, or 2) You just saw the title somewhere and thought you would try to look cool and say you were reading it. Either way, I seriously hope you're not choosing a children's book as some sorta historical work. It's time for you to be really, really, really, really honest.
    I find this quite entertaining. I am currently a college student. Also To Be A Slave is not a children's book. Would a children's book include graphic descriptions of slaves getting lashed? No, it would not.

    Now please, tell me how the fugitive slave laws were not meant to harm black people?

    Also, please tell me how slavery did not exist for 200 years?

    EDIT: Explain to me adpst, why do you deny your own history?

    Its time for you to be truly honest.

    While divergent opinions indeed are necessary to a thriving republic, it's not too much to expect common respect for the Constitution, protection of individual liberties, spending only within our means, and appreciation for the proper role of state and local governments.

    Wrong conclusion. This is class discrimination against a small cross-section of the black community, not race discrimination. Look at all of the names that the researchers assigned to blacks. Let's call them ghetto names. Look at all of the names the researchers assigned to whites. Let's call them middle class names.

    What do we discover when we look at the leadership of black professional societies? What kind of names do these black leaders have? Do they have ghetto names or do they have middle class names.

    Here are the board names of the National Association of Black Journalists:


    Gregory Lee, Errin Haines, Bob Butler, Lisa Cox, Keith Reed, Cindy George, Dedrick Russell, A. J. Ross, Michelle Fitzhugh-Craig, Dawn Roberts.


    Here are the names of the leadership of the National Association of Black Accountants:


    Calvin Harris, Jr, Gregory Johnson, Shariah Dixon-Turner, Wayne Lee, Veda Stanley, Walter J. Smith, Ronald P. Walker, Celia Thompkins, Tina O. McIntyre, W. Delores Lewis, Sheila Taylor-Clark, James Brown, Arica Harris, Monica Y. Brame, Charles V. Daniel, Carriea Flowers, Robert Dunlap, Steven L. Harris, Kenneth Cooke, Nora Ramzy, Uso Sayers, Manuel Torres.


    Clearly, even blacks are discriminating against blacks.

    What's really going on is not discrimination based on race, but a sorting based on class. The human resources departments operate on this heuristic because they look about them and likely don't see too many Lakishas and Jamals amongst their black executives and from past experience they've learned when they analyze the resumes of the Lakishas and Jamals, that these applicants were clearly not qualified.

    Even the researchers make note of this alternative explanation, but to know this you'd actually have had to read the study rather than relying on the biased media coverage of the study:


    One simple alternative model is lexicographic search by employers. Employers receive so many resumes that they may use quick heuristics in reading these resumes. One such heuristic could be to simply read no further when they see an African American name. Thus they may never see the skills of African American candidates and this could explain why these skills are not rewarded.

    Seriously? Is that what you meant when you said you had debunked this particular study?

    Obviously the study wouldn't have proven anything if they hadn't picked names that easily identified people as blacks; that was the whole point!
