    While I like to think that is true my friend, the reality is that NOTHING would destroy that belief system. I think you are correct in that any thinking intelligent person would have their belief system rocked by the truth. But when a person lives in absolute denial of even what century we are living in, it seems an impossibility to have any hope for the light bulb to go on.

    The really funny thing about this exchange is if EB simply answered the question posed to him in post 58 last night, we would have moved on. But his post after post after post refusal to do so simply keeps shining the light over and over and over again upon his inability to answer it making it all the worse for his position.

    He keeps telling me he already answered this but all one need do is go back to 58 and then go forward and its easy to see it was not answered - only dodged and evaded.

    here is the complete totality of your post 67

    answering this again...........(your question has already answered numerous times in many threads)
    There is NO answer given in that post.

    And you refer to many threads but I only just asked you this specific question last night right here and in no other thread.

    So why can't you answer it? Even others are beginning to notice EB.

    I have never asked you the question before that I posed in 58 last night. If you can prove otherwise, simply do so with a link or reproduce it.

    Otherwise, why can't you answer the question?

    I do not want your love - only a direct answer to the question.

    Re: Have White Americans benefited from Civil Rights era gains?

    I guess polls can close after a while because I can't vote in this one. Of course white americans have benefited, it would be silly to think otherwise. First improved rights for part of the population is improved equal rights for all of us. It simply can't work any other way. Secondly there are now parts of my family that are mixed. Civil rights is also responsible for me having friends, lovers, co-workers, classmates, teachers, coaches, employees, employers, contractors, doctors, nurses, politicians etc etc that were minorities. Minorities have been involved in ground breaking inventions, studies, discoveries break throughs etc.

    So yes white americans have benefited, there's nothing that says otherwise unless of course you are a white american that thinks minorities shouldn't have had rights, then I'm sure you have plenty of reasons to deny the benefits or think they aren't really benefits hahaha. The thing is though, you are a loser.
