Boy that's a lot of influence by white people. The numbers are similar for state and local governments. If there was going to be influence you would think it would be for government jobs. Guess the influence goes only so far.
    Historically, it has been government employment opportunities that offered the least level of racial discrimination to blacks compared to what blacks faced in the private sector. Likely one reason a greater proportion of blacks seek career opportunities with the government. Gen. Colin Powell testified before Congress this was what he sought a career in the military. When I was growing up, nearly every member of my family was government employed.

    Oh stop, LOL. I've presented arguments and, as I suspected, they have been ignored by you and others who share your uninformed opinions. None of you have any capacity to examine your own role in the problem. All of you just want black people to "get over it". LOL

There are a whole host of other issues that distinguish the assimilation of the Irish from black Americans into mainstream white society. There's actually a good book called "How the Irish Became White" that deal with a lot of this.

    Regardless, I understand that you're not just talking about the Irish specifically, but about other groups that have dealt with oppression and managed to assimilate better into mainstream society than black Americans. However, as I said to TurtleDude, such comparisons take away the agency of black Americans and minimize the differences between them and these other groups. The fact is that different groups deal with different circumstances and handle things differently.

    You are right. Many groups in this country have dealt with oppression, but I don't think it's a coincidence that two of the most currently disadvantaged of those groups are black Americans and Native Americans - the two groups who dealt with the longest lasting, most systemic, most alientating oppression in this country.


    Internalized racism - i.e. "I'm black and I'm inferior" type attitudes - are a much bigger problem among black Americans than "blame it on whitey" attitudes.


    Again, it's really none of your concern in black people "won't let the issue rest." That you think it's your place to tell black people what is and is not appropriate them to feel about racism - historic and current - is a problem. If you want to solve a problem with racial issues in this country, then stop doing what white people have always done to black people - telling them how to feel.
    First of all, the reason why black people have such a difficult time integrating into society in a productive manner is because of people who constantly remind that they were slaves and were considered "inferior" and people who constantly cry racism at every slight. People like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton are the REAL brainwashers here. They put into these people's minds that they are victims and discriminated against.

    Also, this most certainly is my concern. It has an effect on society. You have some nerve to say to me "stop telling them how to feel" and then in the very next breath tell me to not be concerned. Good God! Take a look in the mirror will you?

    In regards to them feeling inferior, THAT is the victim mentality that I'm referring to. Of course there are reasons other than racism as to why they feel like "victims" all the time. MOST people in America are NOT racist, regardless of what you want to think about them.

    Obviously you have a very simplistic view of the issues.

    No. It still feels the same damned way regardless.

    Eh, the phrase "crying racism" is only used to minimize and demean concerns of racism that are valid. I don't respond to arguments that don't take concerns of racism seriously. Try another approach.

    Also, this most certainly is my concern. It has an effect on society. You have some nerve to say to me "stop telling them how to feel" and then in the very next breath tell me to not be concerned. Good God! Take a look in the mirror will you?
    No, it's none of your concern how black people feel about racism. I mean, you can continue to think they need to "get over it", but that just perpetuates the same racial power dynamics that cause many of them to resent white people, but whatevs.

    In regards to them feeling inferior, THAT is the victim mentality that I'm referring to.
    No, it's not. That's a separate issue. We are talking about two entirely different issues. Don't mix up my arguments with yours.

    Of course you did. You said we don't get to see "everything" that goes on. You insinuated that these particular detectives/police were dishonest in some way. Don't you think that your claim is pretty much ridiculous?

    Well, my view is based on extensive research in addition to experience. What is yours based on? Anecdotes? I take my informed view any day of the week.

    Is that policy, or is it because of self-segregated areas of town?

    Is there a sign on the front that says, "Whites Only" and "Colored Only" on the school or does it just so happen that the schools are zoned for areas where people have segregated their neighborhoods.
