    A hell of a lot more can make their way out of poverty if they actually try.

    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.

    Blacks weren't enslaved for 200 years.

    1776-1860. That is not even 100 years. Don't exagerate. Anyway, slavery in the american colonies had become law of the land when a black man in Virginia claimed that he had ownership over another black man, and the judge decided that he was correct. And slavery became legal.

    I would imagine it's difficult to find "evidence" of racist intent or personal opinions on race.

    No, you don't get it. You probably never will. And no, no one expects you to be color-blind. No one expects anyone to be color-blind. But you have the option not to be. Jamie Fox doesn't. And color-blindness isn't the issue. It's bigotry that is. It's viewing races as in competition with each other. It's assuming that a person's race necessarily affects their character, rather than understanding that character comes from background which is affected by the way we treat different races.

    I'm not color-blind and no one has ever accused me of being racist.
    It sounds like you have made up your mind to be an exploited, suffering victim and you're not going to let any sumbch take that way from you.

    Your view is simplistic at best.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
