    I wasn't talking about race specifically in that post. Merely pointing how human beings find it easy to judge others based on their appearance, rather than taking the time to figure out what's underneath. Everyone's guilty of subconsciously judging an individual when meeting them for the first time, before they even open their mouth or shake one's hand. And employers are no less fallible than the rest of us.

    Oh wait, no, it's all Obama's fault they can't help themselves!

    black people's fault? Obama's fault? Wait, i'm confused now...
    Well the blame belongs to someone. The blame whitey engine is running out of gas. So, who do we blame, next?

    no one individual or group is solely to blame. It's a structural/systematic problem.

    There's only way to get those skills, too. Sitting at home, waiting for the government to make everything ok isn't one of them.

    And I would add that even if it's not employers themselves that are engaging in racist behavior (either consciously or subconsciously), this is still evidence of institutionalized racism.
    I thought you were smarter than that.

    Look into the issue of structural/systematic/institutionalized racism. Racism can still exist without people being racists. It's got historical and social implications.

    I've got to ask this question again. What precisely are these skills that black folks lack that other people have? And why do blacks not have them while other people do? Are blacks simply lazier than everyone else and refuse to get such training? Examples, anyone?

    More blacks drop out of school than whites. The problems starts at the bottom, with education. It's very simple to see if you take off your blinders. Lack of education/skills is directly related to unemployment. If more blacks drop out than whites, then naturally more blacks will be unemployed. It's really quite simple. So it's not because of their race, it's because by far their race drops out of school more than whites. Blaming it on skin color is like blaming Ford when you drain the oil from your truck and then burn up the engine driving it down the road.

    More than twice as many blacks drop out of high school than whites. 81% of white high school students receive their high school diplomas within 4 years, with only 61% of blacks receiving theirs. And you really blame race as to why they can't find a job?

    And, who are we to believe that created the structural/systematic problem? Whitey, right?

    It's because the black community has been indoctrinated by the Left, that they 1) can't succeed without someone's help, because of the unsurmountable racism and 2) they should just sit back and let the do-gooders do things for them.

    I have skills that allow me to make a living and you can damn well believe, no one gave anything to me.
