    Sociology? No thanks.

    Sociology is the study of how whitey is evil based on statistics that make assumptions without supporting evidence for said assumptions.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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.

    Why do you assume white people don't have to deal with racism from blacks for the rest of their lives any more or less than blacks have to deal with racism for the rest of theirs?
    Mike Jordan's kids are an exceptional exception. And really, do black people hold so many positions of power that they can say we white people are inferior to them? Poor white people.

    That sounds (so to speak) very uneducated. Sorry, but it does.

    What does this have to do with blame? I'm not wanting someone to blame, I'm just saying, whether you think racism is inherent or not, it's still something we need to prevent as much as possible, just as with things like murder, sexism, oppresion and other stuff. I know it's impossible to completely remove racism, we aren't a perfect species, but we at least strive to be better.

    And the only thing we can do is look to it from a different perspective. A different angle. What we are doing now is not working. Ofc, not you and I. I mean at a macro, institutional level. There is nothing you or I can do as private individuals.
    Well, we can definitely start organizations, support groups, promote education, promote awareness, and just encourage general good. No, there's nothing we can do as individuals, but when we come together, there is almost too much to do.

    I finally figured it out . . . Jamie Foxx and all those elite black people are perpetrating a fraud against the white man to keep the white man down.

    The fact that this is your opinion on sociology is just more proof that you need to get educated. I'm not saying that in a condescending way, I'm just saying that concept seems really ignorant.

    I would say it has to do with the group in question. Nigerians can be divided into three large ethnic groups with a few smaller ones (The Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo). It's been my experience that the most successful in business and academics are the Yoruba and Igbo as they had a working environment in which they saw tangible growth the more they worked. The British instilled a working ethic that provided what I would call 'group growth through colonialism'. The problem with Nigerians was that this work ethic wasn't as strongly applied up North where the Hausa lived. This was because economic conditions up in Northern Nigeria were not as great as that of the more hospitable South. As such, today in Nigeria you have a very real discrepancy of wealth with Northern Nigerians being generally poorer than their Southern brethren and with less work opportunities.

    All this to say, is that it really depends on which kind of Nigerian you're speaking of. For every 1 successful Igbo/Yoruba you are more than likely to find 2 poor Hausa.

    A long history of discrepancies? You mean current existing discrepancies.

    So no need to look for the CURRENT CAUSE of said disparities..... just as long as they exist then it is instant racism?
    Please take a course in sociology. You're hurting yourself.
