    Instead we need to focus on what "we" need to all do to rid our ranks of those who would perpetuate the rift between races, when these faults are not the faults of a race, but rather the faults of individuals within the whole, and are fualts of us as humans. Your white elitism categorization is also damaging to race relations, and is also discriminatory.
    Pardon me, but this is not Avatar, Alice in Wonderland, The Matrix, or Oz...this is the real world. And for you to deny redress and addressing blatant and covert racism in lieu of political correctness is absurd.
    It's why sane and rational people are taking tea partiers to task, for their racist and anti-American stances.

    Please. If I weren't reminded everyday that I'm a black person, and not in charge, I could easily overlook the BS. Unfortunately, that isn't the case...and political debate forums make it abundantly clear.


    I live in the "real world" as well - a world that unfortunately is full of people like yourself that feed off of dividing people, inside of uniting people.
    IMHO, in order for people to unite, they first have to unload most of all their preconceived notions (read : crap), and suspend judgment.....unfortunately, hard to do for most folks.

    How are you reminded every day. And how, pray tell, are you NOT in charge? I'm a woman, could I say that I'm reminded every day that I'm not in charge? That's a cop out. YOU are in charge of YOU - nobody else has that power - UNLESS YOU GIVE IT TO THEM.

    Enlighten us.

Indeed, if racism is to end, whites will have to stop demanding that they are entitled, and that entitlement dictates policy to persons of color.
    How do 'whites' demand entitlements?

    Examples. Please.

    Of course they have equality of opportunity. Affirmative action is a system promoting equality of outcome and we do not need it. What, you can't make it on your own? I had to.

    Are you denying that "white privilege" exists, and that whites don't use it to their clear advantage?
    "White privilege" clearly does not exist. I read your link and learned it is coming out alongside the leftist women studies movement. This is the height of adopting a victimization viewpoint and efforts to reduce "white privilege" are transparently seen to be efforts to artificially level the cultural playing field without actually doing anything constructive nor earning it through hard work. It will reduce respect for the hard work efforts that others do. It is pure institutionalized racism.

    White privilege absolutely exists.
    My family is the perfect example of that.

    By going into an upscale resale shop, and being "eyed down", like I'm going to steal something. Being told by the salesclerk not to "run through any bushes", in my DKNY jacket, out the clear blue sky. When riding a bus, and an outside seat becomes available, and the overweight white guy, moves to occupy 2 seats so that I can't sit down, though laden with packages.
    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.

    Well you know you could look to the guy who is the President of the country and see that you could be in charge instead of sitting around and blaming whitey. You are perpetuating the rift your damn self, you have animosity towards another race, and this animosity seeps through in your posts.

    As far as the whole tea party being condemned, no, because it was not the sentiment of the whole, the individuals in the party that act abhorrently need condemned, regardless of the fraction of the whole with these views may be, just as should be done to humans, do not judge by the color of the skin (and this includes judging whitey to be elite), judge each person individually on their own merit(s) and root out those who act divisively.
