    Which seems in keeping with poverty levels and such other measurables. It would be a mistake to try and link it to prejudice alone.

    but blacks of a given socioeconomic level have far higher rates of violent crime than whites of the same status

    I don't link it to prejudice alone but it seems when whites discriminate its by one means, blacks by another

    I believe minorities tend to be more conscious of their status than the majority and thus blacks often engage in more racism deliberately than whites these days. its also more accepted by the PC media

    That's because there are MORE white people than other races. Of course there would be MORE racists among whites, simply because there are so many more of them. It's not like white people get together and plan to screw over on black people. Give me a break.

    I don't know that you stats are true to begin with. But don't think history doesn't play a role. I remember being reminded once that civil rights weren't that long ago. Because of this, many grew up with parents who never read anything but their bills. It is arrogant to assume your life is the rule by which to measure others. I'm not excusing crime, but if we seek to understand, we do need to see the entire picture.

    While I agree short of some bizarre series of events, that such prejudice isn't likely to have a great impact on things, such resentment hardly facilitates constructive dialogue and the type of social interaction that helps facilitate good social integration. And I am almost positive that it helps perpetuate certain negative social ills within the african american community.

    So we shouldn't simply ignore it.

    considering groups like the NOI it is certainly more visible and socially acceptable

    It's more than that. A lot more.

    And to be honest, I know places where they do get together and do just that. Again, not saying it's anywhere her a majority if whites, but it dies happen.
