    There you have it, folks... racism is not a problem. Black people just whine.

    Mosque/church/temple/retreat are all synonyms for the same thing so yes.

    You actually do believe your messages are self proving truisms, don't you?

    Nearly every American whines. Whining of unfairness it the American way. And then actually believe that by whining enough other people owe them and know there is really nothing they can do for themselves for all the unfairness against them. That isn't limited to African-Americans, but the vast majority of Americans.

    I'll agree that places focused on spiritual enlightenment have less racism than a random sample, but I'm not convinced that's true. Places focused on intellectual enlightenment have the least racism, I am convinced that's true.

    My trade school was saturated with 'equality' policies, special clubs for various minorities, etc, which are all behaviors based on race, and therefore are racism, so I can't agree.

    I reference places of spirituality because they tend to disregard race as a topic to think about as a byproduct of focusing on the mind and spirit rather than humanist points of view.

    In order to be 'inclusive' or 'pluralistic' of 'diverse', you first have to identify how someone is different from you, and that's the problem. We should instead focus on how we are alike, not different. The very term "racial equality" is racist because it focuses on race and is racially motivated.

    I have nothing against a person getting an education. It's a good idea, particularly if a job marketable education, wouldn't you say so?
    ...and, you know this how? are you a member of a minority that generally claims its being discriminated against such that you have an informed opinion on this? Do you have some type of socio-scientific study to back your claim? Or, are you just just this guy?

    I just love people who express their expert opinions about things for which they have no expertise.... I hope you realize that is what gives rise to racism or bigotry: believing things about another people to be true, while having no informed basis for that belief and dismissing the informed opinions/experiences of those the feel discriminated against because those experiences don't fit with your uninformed opinions.

    I don't give a **** what you do. Your position is idiotic. Minority clubs are not racist.
