    sorry, you can't ignore something just because it doesn't fit your agenda. read the ****ing quote YOU provided

    White Americans (non-Hispanic/Latino and Hispanic/Latino) are the racial majority, with an 80% share of the U.S. population
    apparently wiki-wiki thinks that white-hispanic = white

    The basic premise is still valid. Since blacks make up only 13% of the US population why should they make up more than 13% of the power positions?
    lets look to some other stuff

    how many Jewish senators are there? Jews make up 2% of the population but they sure have more than 2% of the senators. Protestants make up a majority of lawyers in the USA but there are no protestants on the supreme court. Catholics are way way overrepresented on the supremes as are Jews (6 and 3)

    Asians at places Like Cornell Engineering are probably a majority

    is this due to oppression? Nah I don't think so

    yeah, tis odd that blacks are the only "oppressed" minority in this country.

    what is interesting is that in the last 40 years (since the civil rights act was passed and segregation was kaboshed by federal forces) the sons and daughters of those who escaped genocide and the children of those who fled communist extermination in Vietnam and Cambodia have turned out more Ivy League Phi Beta Kappas than our supposed only "oppressed group"

    I suspect cultural values tend to matter more than "oppression"

    Actually, Viets and Cambodians tend to struggle much, much more than Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans in the U.S. And the Hmong populations have major problems with gangs, poverty, etc.

    Whites?
    Ever see an albino?
    Deliverance....the poor sole without any health care, living in ignorance, but with freedom, if you call it that.
    Blacks?
    Ever see one?
    Africa....
    Oppressed?
    I do not know...probably, its the darker side of humanity.

    probably true -my sister in law was first generation Chinese and her parents-educated professors fled the communists and have done very well. But I recall reading about two service academies having the children of "boat people" as valedictorians which is something no Black American had ever achieved to the best of the knowledge of the writer of the articles concerning the USMA and the USAF academy (IIRC)
