    I do not know if this is true or not, but I have heard say that black women don't like white women who marry black men because they take away the better black men from them. If so, it's more of a jealously thing, it seems.

    Yet, it seems counter to what is always preached to us that race shouldn't matter.

    YES. See, that's exactly what Jill Scott said - that white women take the better, more educated, settled black men while black women have to take the ones with no job, 5 babies by 5 baby mommas, etc. It's just jealousy. That's why I said that race will always matter. You will never get away from it, because you will always have somebody separating by color.

    * I don't think he was stupid enough to do it himself, but I do believe he paid someone else to do it.

    Her husband is very Latin looking. He couldn't pass for white. To be honest, she was likely envisioning a stereotype of culture when she made the remark, not ethnicity.

    being a newbie I'm wondering if this spawned from something else because how could anybody ever answer no.

    In a concentrated area, so that it's noticeable and not just 1-2 idiots? Sure, go to south chicago or other majority-minority areas and a white person might even feel threatened. Outside of those enclaves however, they really don't have any power at all, so why does it matter? It's not like the south chicago residents will put a stop to outrageously discriminatory frisking policies in other states.

    Even where the minority is in the majority, the white residents are often not the targets of police corruption, as in ferguson. Of course, this will only build the animosity against the white minority

    Just as many whites cheered the verdict because he was an elite football player. Why did white women cheer for mike tyson the rapist? If you ask me, it's more celebrity trumps justice and compassion

    Oh , come on now .. Simply walk thru an "all black" neighborhood at night , causing the "power" to suddenly shift .. Of course, no sane man does this ..OR , less insane , attend an all black church service on a Sunday morn, as I did once ..A strange , but uncomfortable feeling, caused by guilt feelings .. this should not be , but is .. Here again, the Blacks have the "power", but do not use it in any sort of violent manner ...nor do I believe that they are employing any racism , intentionally ..
    It would help ever so much if we would attend AME services as a habit and then socialize..

    Yes. But it is not institutionalized like it is against African Americans.
