The problem isn't that the opportinities are not there, the problem is that many black kid's parents, or parent, don't encourage them to take advantage of them. This isn't 1960 anymore and George Wallace isn't standing on the steps not letting them in.
    Ummm the UNCF is a private organization so that is completely irrelevant because it is not funded by government. A poor white kid can get the same pell grants etc as anyone else can from the government.

    As if this contributes anything to the discussion.

    We should just use the official Conservative definition which is "Racism only exists in the Democratic party, or in cases of racism against whites."

    As opposed to the official Liberal definition, which is "only whites can be racist, no matter how absurdly racist some blacks and black leaders might act"?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That's funny...I've discussed racism with hundreds of people, a large chunk of them self-identified as liberals, and not ONE (1) of them has ever claimed anything even remotely resembling the notion that "only whites can be racist."

    I've met a large chunk of self-described conservatives as well, and while many of them express concern over what they imagine to be unfairly uneven concern for racism in different directions (the dominant conservative approach to racism is to view it as an individual attitude problem instead of/more than as an institutionalized problem).

    Now that that's out of the way, any chance left of a reasonable thread?
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

    What's your point? Black kids get pell grants too. The opportunities are there
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

So, what you are saying w/o knowing it is that people that share a color are a race. But your description is based on an assumed culture. An if you really look at culture only I have found lazy in white culture and I have't found any difference that I can resolve when it comes to skin color between those that consider then selves black, white, or any other color. This is all for now.
    Thanks. Yours is exactly the attitude I am talking about. There are negative stereotypes about every race or group. Asians can't drive, southerners **** their cousins, etc. But you and yours only squeal racism over black stereotypes.

    Then you need to look around more because that attitude is very prevalent, even right here on these very forums.

    That a problem exists............
    ALL of us suffer from racism.. Some at 1%; others at 100%..
    We must face up to the problem and do things to solve it; not deny, not blame others, not be dishonest...
    But, a man cannot deny that "blacks" are the most frequent victims of racism...and this is where the most work must be..
    We need a better people.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    its funny how racists always whine & complain when their racism is called racism.

    what should we call it instead, "tough love"?
