1. segregation wasn't that far back.
2. slavery has generational effects.
3. you still have institutional racism in buisiness and the police.
They've done studies on chances of getting hiring based on if your name sounds black, or your skin color, the chances of you being hassled by the police and so on, black people come out on the bottom.I'd like to see you support that.
My support that they don't racially favor whites is Affirmative Action and financial aid programs for black business owners.
What financial aid programs for black buisiness owners ....?
Also Affermative Action isn't really that big of a thing, I'd say not being able to get a job dispite being qualified, and getting your head smashed against the floor is bigger.
Absolutely, that would be instittuional racism .... and perhaps that does happen, maybe in Zimbabwe or something, but in the US, most of the wealthy and most of the buisiness owners are white.If I'm a black business owner and I decide to only hire blacks because I don't trust whites, yet I don't HATE white people, in fact I may have white friends. Yet a white person who doesn't have a job because of people like me goes on to HATE black people.
wait ... what proof would you accept if you don't accpet statistics?Which I have seen no proof of. Only statistics with a conclusion drawn from them but absolutely no explanation to why the conclusion of racism was drawn.
What affermative action ... what special programs for black buisiness owners?Yes. Institutions and power dynamics.. Black President, Affirmative Action, Special programs to assist with black business owners, etc, etc, etc.
As far as the black president ... since when has the president had any real autonomy? So what ....?
That isn't the case at all.Im not saying the "institution" is set up against the white man, but the only disadvantage I see to black folks is the same one white folks have, the level of poverty of wealth they were born into, and their individual level of motivation to get out of that situation.
1. All other things being equal you are more likely to be hired if you are white.
2. All other rhings being equal you are more likely to be hassled by police if you are black.
3. All other things being equal you are more likely to get a senior position if you are white.
Now I think that Affermative action should be class not race based, but you can't ignore the facts.
My point here is that individual racism isn't important, institutional racism is. So the statement "more blacks are racist than whites" means nothing, we have to look at this from a materialist standpoint.
