    Moreso, for the black community, though.

    Do white kids, from poor communities, who are sucessful, get haruanged for trying to, "be white"?

    Trust me, it's a much, much bigger issue among black, than among whites.

    They are white. But do you recall all that anti intellectual stuff? They do get crap for being "too smart." That really isn't any different.

    And I see no reason to trust. If we have support for something, we don't need trust.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    no. it's more a function of economic standing. poor black, white, Native American, hispanic, and asian communities are where the anti-intellectual sentiment is widespread

    since they are obviously white, it's more about being a geek, a dork, a nerd or someone who supports 'the system'

    Trust me, it's a much, much bigger issue among black, than among whites.
    whenever someone feels compelled to ask me to trust them it causes me to question why they feel the need to ask such a favor, to trust them, as if it were something which is out of the ordinary
    in raw numbers, i am - without the benefit of data - going to speculate that there are more anti-intellectual whites than blacks
    in terms of percentage of those two ethic populations which are anti-intellectual, the edge would probably go to the black community ... again because this is an economic rather than a race issue and more blacks than white are impoverished - as a percentage of that ethnic population

    Unbelievable that he was in that chair in the first place. Probably got it with blackmail.
    Or more likely he got it before the ethics charges. Conspiracy theories are fun and all, but reality is better,

    As I said before, it's a larger problem within the black community.

    Being called a geek, dork, or a nerd is alot less harmless than being called an Uncle Tom, or a race traitor.

    whenever someone feels compelled to ask me to trust them it causes me to question why they feel the need to ask such a favor, to trust them, as if it were something which is out of the ordinary

    I guess that's why only 5% of college grads are black males?

    More black are impoverished, because there are more blacks that are anti-intellectual and there are more members within the black community that are waiting for the big payoff they've been promised, versus the white community.

    You're correct that you don't have the raw data. You seem to want to pull your opinions from La-La Land, instead.

    he is correct, there probably more anti-intellectual whites, but only because there are 8 X as many whites as blacks in the US. now, if you want meaningful numbers and want to talk % of the population, tis a different story.

    i would really want to debate these issues, which are beyond being tangential to the thread topic. so rather than derailing this thread why not start another in the how to show our racism forum or whatever it is called using your post above and i will join you there in that separate debate

    Didn't take you long to call me a racist.

    A black man points out the problems that he sees within the black community and you call him a racist. Thank you for proving my point, sir.

    can't imagine why i would expect to see this thread derail continued in its own posting section within the show your racism forum or its equivalent (i am guessing you will know the correct locale):
    More black are impoverished, because there are more blacks that are anti-intellectual and there are more members within the black community that are waiting for the big payoff they've been promised, versus the white community.
    but begin that thread in another forum and we can flail away at each other rather than continuing to disrupt this particular thread having as its topic :
    Rangel guilty: House ethics panel rules misconduct
    our recent posts are not even touching the surface of that subject. so, take your supposed black ass over to the appropriate forum and post there. let me know when and i will be more than delighted to join you in an intense discussion of things racial
