    I know, as well as many of you, some outstanding young black kids that are friends with my kids. One of my daughters closest friends on her soccer team is just about the greatest kid in the whole world. Her brothers are as well. Great family, dad's a cardiologist and mom's a lab tech. Work with a guy named LaKendrick (one of those names lol) that is just one heck of a guy and a tech wiz. His kids are high-achieving, super well-behaved, respectful, etc.

    Those kids have to walk out into the world under a stigma that, unfortunately for them, is so prevalent and so often accurate about kids that look like them, that they have to fight it every day. They do, and they thrive, but it's aggravating for them even though they understand why.

    It shouldn't be this way, but they are so vastly the exception to the rule that they have to constantly overcome it, which they do with flying colors.

    But as LaKendrick (or Lake as we call him) says, "Hey, it's tough, but it can be a huge advantage, too, if you educate and polish yourself. It's so rare that you stand out." He talks about this stuff all the time unprompted.

    True, but so sad.
    That's awesome that a kid can understand and articulate that concept and keep a great attitude about it.

    You hit a really good point here, too. These social issues that we discuss here are jsut that...social issues. It's up to every one of us as individuals to treat everyone as an individuals despite acknowledgment of social ills present in a group.

    And as stated in this thread, the most deeply seeded racism toward all races today in America is from the black community. Many blacks are unapologetic racists of the highest order.

    I can't say I agree with that, but like I said, I also disagree with attempting to fight racism through restrictions on thought and speech. That ultimately encourages the same authoritarian tendencies that go hand in hand with bigotry.

    ...School officials said last week's clashes strained efforts to improve race relations...


    This story is some heinous bull**** on several levels, but before I discuss the actual issue, I want to discuss the media treatment of it.

    First: "Tensions between black and Asian students"

    There are no tensions "between" black and Asians. This is blacks blatantly targeting and attacking Asians, for no reason. This isn't peace keeping between two ethnic groups with legitimate grievances against each other- this is one group, the blacks, actively targeting the other group, the Asians, without provocation. There is no exchange. It's entirely one sided.

    Second: "efforts to improve race relations"

    Again suggesting that their needs to be some sort of "opened dialogue" between the two groups. No, blacks need to stop attacking Asians. What are the Asians supposed to do, start being less Asian? Because being Asian is their only provocation.

    This story makes me furious. I spent most of my life as a white minority in black-majority schools and it was pretty ****ty, but I understand the historical consequences of whites treatments of blacks.

    But I cannot even express how disgusted I am that American blacks, who have had state aid lavished upon them for decades, are treating Asian immigrants -people who have struggled without support to make a life in this country- so wretchedly.

    What's even more infuriating is the school systems treatment of the issue. It took them an entire week to respond, and their response was a committee meeting. And notice that the perpetrators (the ten at least that they bothered to catch) were not charged with assault, weren't even expelled, they were just given suspensions. Meaning that they'll be back within a month, in the same school. Could it be because the entire school system is run by blacks?

    I have experienced my entire life the predatory behavior of blacks against all other races in the schools of this city- and I don't think the issue is just in the city, I think it's equally true in other black-majority cities. My high school was about 30 percent white, which was enough to protect each other, but it was still a struggle. This was not racist white banding together to oppress blacks- it was white people from all over the city trying to merely protect ourselves from unrestrained black violence. I don't personally believe in reinstating systematic racism and I believe that the problems of the black community aren't necessarily inherent to black genetics (although they are inherent to black culture) but I do strongly understand how other whites (and other non-blacks) I grew up with came to those conclusions. And this article illustrates why. If blacks want to make some racist Asian skinhead gangs, this is a great way to do it. And who will be at fault?
    Asian kids are wussy nerds who play video games all day and can't put up with a little bullying. That's basically what I got.

    I can confirm for you that Jallman's claim is on time and on target.

    That's BS, too. I attended public school with white and blacks and we got as much out of it as we put into it.

    Education is just as equal for blacks as it is for anyone else. It all depends on how much education you want to get while you're in school.

    Isn't it funny how nothing is ever the fault of the people involved? No, it's never the student's fault or the parent's fault that Tyrone is a straight D student with a disciplinary rap sheet that would make most convicts' eyes pop with surprise.

    It's because the school he attends is "inferior".

    Puh-lease.

    It's how Liberalism works. They always have to have a victim and a villain. The problems of the victim are always the fault of the villain and never ever is the victim responsible for his own problems.

    And 99.99% of the time the villain is white and/or southern and/or American and/or Christian and/or male.

    Which I find ironic and this is why: To liberals, the dumbest people in the country are supposed to be the uneducated white rednecks of the south.

    Yet urban blacks are disadvantaged because their schools are supposedly inferior to those of whites.

    Rural white rednecks are supposedly perpetrating all manner of predations on the country and the world, inciting acts of terror and global warming (ooga booga booga). Yet the justice system is clogged with African American career criminals.

    And white redneck bigots are supposedly still choking the life out of African American culture yet if an African American is killed, 93.1% of the time, it's by another African American. African Americans comprise 13.5% of the US population, but the make up 43% of all murder victims.


    Liberal idealogy just does not jive with the raw data.
