    Is that not kind of part of the problem? In reading Tipping Point and other books, it seems one of the greatest reasons for procrastination is a lack of understanding where to start on a problem and how to tackle it overall. Considering they were oppressed, many were uneducated and it takes a while for the education gap to close. Are we getting it yet?

    In addition, populations with a history of emphasis on education and success pass that down from generation to generation. Black Americans do not have that history in the United States. It doesn't take a few Civil Rights Acts and 40 years to establish that tradition.

    Yes, but it's also just as "ok" for white comedians to bash blacks because we have the First Amendment. I personally find racism offensive, though.

    If it doesn't offend somebody, it isn't as funny.

    Sure, as long as whites can bash blacks for comedy...

    Normally I don't respond to dubious posts but in your case I'll make an exception. Crossing the line, to me, is anything that goes from being funny to being offensive. Your false parallel makes you seem suspicious at best. If you thought before you posted, you'd know that there are many racist slurs that affect every race and group and cross the line. Trying to say that lynching of blacks is the standard of what crosses the line for all races is an amateur move. There are a great deal other things that cross the line and to deny it would be the mark of a fool.Interesting?

    If not African Americans because of practices imposed upon blacks 150 years ago, then where in the world do people of African descent have that tradition?

    Actually, his point goes hand in hand with what you just said. You think that crossing the line is going from funny to offensive. "Offensive" varies from person to person. Moreover, in the United States, the line of being offensive is probably easier to cross for a white comedian than a black comedian because of the history of racism in this country (which Mr. Invisible was pointing to).

    What's the point you're trying to make? Is this another one of your attempts to say that blacks are inherently less intelligent than whites 'cause that's getting old?
