    How does acknowledging history and reality take away personal responsibility?

    So you don't even consider the question?

    Even if there was proof?

    Odd. I thought the scientifically minded were to be open to proof from both sides of a question.

As many posts as RiverDad has made about IQs for blacks being lower, he's never been able to acknowledge that there are just as many (if not more) studies which show beyond question that those IQ tests were an inaccurate measure of intelligence due to a failure to adjust for cultural variations.
    Okay, how about the notion of not "acting white"?

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Where did I say that? I'm starting to get tired of people arguing against what they wish I said instead of what I said.

    Also, have you accepted that absolute proof doesn't exist in our universe.

    Yes. I think we all comedians should be wide open in creating funny stereotypes and trends and culture differences etc., Just be creative and funny.

    What you're calling reality is nothing more than an excuse. If anything, since then they have had reverse-racism to help them catch up, e.g., black scholarships. I'm not throwing any pity parties for anyone. I went from a single mother on welfare to upper-middle class before even going on to grad school...and don't try to feed me any BS that being white helped me.

    So show me evidence that I should even consider you question and you'll get an answer. In other words, you have yet to prove that your question is worth considering.

    Absolute proof doesn't exist for anything, which is absolutely ironic because here we have people arguing over beliefs that have not been absolutely proven.

    I have another question.

    Do you also think evolution didn't touch the physical capabilities of all races? That all races are, in general terms, equal in physical terms? Can you tell the class exactly what evolution did and didn't touch among all races so we can see what is indeed absolutely equal among races?

    I don't recall WSS or anyone else saying that black history and current discrimination excuses people from "doing anything". It's an explanation for why people don't do something. Each of us has an explanation behind all of our actions. Just as it would be absolutely ridiculous to not acknowledge that the success of many Asians is strongly influenced by their centuries old history of emphasizing the importance of education and respect for elders/family, it would be absolutely ridiculous to not acknowledge that the failure of many blacks in society is due their own history.

    Interesting point. I'm black and I hate affirmative action. I worked damned hard, was homeschooled and kept away from the ghetto mentality by keeping my head in the books, and refused free benefits just because I was black. I think competence should be the primary factor in the academic world; race shouldn't be a factor on who gets accepted into Yale, etc.
