    Every door I've ever knocked on (literally and figuratively) has always opened up for me.

    I honestly can't think of a black man I would want to trade places with.
    Ditto. I can't imagine my life would've been easier if I hadn't been white.
    I'm able to speak to the power structure when I need to, and be acknowledged and heard, and I don't think that would be the case if I were of another race.

    Every race has this ability. What makes you think that other races can't?

    I've just intuited it.
    From what I've seen, a black person has to be extraordinary to be taken as seriously as an ordinary white person.

    From my perspective 95% of the time black folks are taken just as seriously as a white guy.

    I've never been racially profiled or discriminated against.

    I have twice lived in parts of the country that were predominantly none white and have been heavily discriminated against. I have even been refused a ride on a public city bus. Plus many worse things.

    Well, if true, that's still not good enough, is it?
    We're getting there. We've made great progress, it's undeniable.
    But we're not all the way there yet.

    Unfortuately, the average black man is a lot further away from having the sort of wealth and priviledge enjoyed by Michael Jordan than the average white man.

    You also realize that whites can be discriminated against also right?

    Its all about being an indivdual.Dont worry black people liberal minded people are here to help you and patronise you at the same time.

    If someone gets somewhere through affirmative action thats a curse put on them people will always think its only because.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
