    Well, that is their history. Red lining and the southern strategy are still in play.

    Sounds like one of those "over-qualified" situations.

    Did you stop to think maybe the person didn't way to pay for the other guy's experience? He wanted to get an employee he could hire cheap?

    No? Because the first excuse is RACIST!! GOD DAMNED RACISTS EVERYWHERE!

    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.

    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.

    Then don't. What in the heck makes you think I care? There are PLENTY of instances of crying racism, and some outright ridiculous ones at that.

    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.
    It is my concern, and I will keep posting about it and saying how I feel about the issue. Yes, they do need to get over it. It is not helping themselves nor anyone else. It is extremely harmful. That is what the real issue is.

    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.
    Lol! You must be kidding right? Here is what you said.

    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.

    You don't seem to be very well informed at all though. I think you should get out and talk to some white people. Maybe then you will like them more. Most white people are not racists.

    How sad that you think this view is well-informed. Seriously.

    Well, no, it's not your concern. And sure, keep posting on the issue. It's a free country. Everyone is allowed to be as wildly misinformed as they want to be.

    Yes, they do need to get over it. It is not helping themselves nor anyone else. It is extremely harmful. That is what the real issue is.
    The irony of you saying that black people need to get over racial issues that you are perpetuating by telling them - as a white person - how to feel is hilarious.

    Here is what you said.
    I know what I said. The "victim mentality" you were talking about is a separate issue from the sense of inferiority that I was talking about.

    It's unsurprising that you would minimize the issues I'm presenting as a matter of me merely disliking white people. That you are taking my comments that way makes me think your personalizing this issue a great deal while also making assumptions about my race that allow to personalize it in such a manner. "Talk to some white people" is an interesting suggestion in light of my life, but you know nothing about that life so I wouldn't expect you to get that.

    In any case, since you question how uninformed I am, can you provide me with some of the research that you have based your conclusions on? Like I said, I'm very well read in this topic and you seem to just be basing your comments on anecdotes. In fact, it is very telling that your suggestion was not for me to do more research, but for me to "meet people" which, again, would just get me more useless anecdotes. So again, can you show me the research that you think will help me be more informed?

    it might be due to many reasons but I also note AFRICANS who come to this country do far better than american blacks even though its hard to fathom that a racist white is going to distinquish between a guy from Nigeria vs someone whose great great great grandparents came from there
    A very good observation. I think the problem with black American achievement (generalizing) is rooted in the home life of many black families. Post civil rights era, efforts were made to bring about immediate economic relief to people who had been deprived of vocational and educational equality for centuries. Liberals were happy to simply offer unconditional financial compensation. Conservatives insisted if there was an able bodied man in the house, no way, despite having been deprived of the tools to equally compete for economic opportunities. The compromise was assistance to poor families but if we find a dad in the house when we show up unannounced all assistance ends immediately. This had the effect of destroying the traditional family unit model; mom, dad, kids; in poorer homes that due to institutional discrimination for centuries were disproportionality black. The effects of these efforts altered the culture of the black community and today kids growing up in single parent homes are the new normal, who in turn grow up to pattern their lives after the only model for family life they ever lived even though the aggressive measures to make sure no father is in the home as a condition of eating are no longer practiced. The government destruction of the family driven by conservative anti-fraud witch-hunt campaigns were something immigrant families, although economically disadvantaged, have not had perpetuated upon them.
