    Knowing my own answer to this question, I know that racism is alive and kicking.
    It would depend on the job.........

    Or, standing at a bus stop, and 2 little white ladies pull up in a late model Benz, and upon seeing me, in suit and tie, lock their doors and roll up their windows. I could go on and on...most of the time, I breathe a heavy sigh and roll my eyes. "Unless I give it to them"???? You have no idea what you're talking about.
    If your brothers weren't the perpetrators of most urban crime, then perhaps people would look at you differently. I am not defending their actions, but your brothers are responsible.

    Your description of AA is actually Equal Opportunity law. No discrimination on the basis of race, among other things. AA forces the hiring of less qualified minorities and is an abomination.

    And that would be your spin and/or opinion, which is not truth.

    You do have a victimization viewpoint. You feel that opportunities are owed to you as a result of your race.

    Absolutely not. Do not pretend that you know me. You do not.

    Glad to hear you are working hard. Change your attitude and there is no telling what you will be able to accomplish.

    Excuse me? Who died and deigned you God? Don't tell me what to do.

    The playing fields are not level because of a lack of education and wealth. It has nothing to do with racial inequality or racism. Many blacks are one's who inject racism into the mix and your "white privilege" is an excellent example of this.
    Again. That is your opinion, and not truth.

    I'd would actually choose to go as a black male since there is so little representation in my field by blacks. Damn shame but it requires critical thinking and education which are evidently rare.

    Excuse me? My brothers? I have one brother. Urban crime? Oh, right, since whites never commit any crimes, urban or otherwise.
    And where would you be getting your crime statistics from? Right.

    Its not about context. Racist jokes are still racist jokes regardless of who tells them and those who tell racist jokes have no business bitching and moaning over someone using the word nigger. It doesn't matter if it is comedians saying something racist or if it is a politician saying something racist or some kid getting on a speaker system at a walmart.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    BS, and you are dodging. I asked in general, not specific jobs.

    Let's try this a different way:

    If you couldn't know in advance which specific community you would be born into, but you knew you would be growing up in a predominately white neighborhood: Would you rather be born a middle class black person, or a middle class white person in the United States.

    And no, I will not be attempting these thought experiments for every dodge you can think of.
