    You need a refund from your "educational institution of higher learning". Its obvious you have been educated, just that most of what have been taught is flat wrong.

    You have a better analysis and insight on this subject than most. I believe culturalism plays a role in the dynamics of race relations. The financial oppression, lack of opportunities, and education, along with the infatuation of crime and violence from 'hip hop, gangster' culture keeps black society from advancing and reaching equal levels of prosperity?

    What people don't understand is that upbringing, traditions, ingrained language and a million other aspects of society are racist and no one escapes that. Not black people and not white people.

    Just because someone decides, in their heart and mind, that people are people, thousands of years of social programming remain within them and the very air they breath.

    All white people are racist. That's not to say all white people are a racist, a member of the kkk. That is to say racism resides in all white people. Some fight against it and some do not.
    You keep singling out white people which is in itself a very vague and general term as racist, and you say ALL white people are racist. Perhaps you are using an uncommon definition. Define what you mean to be racist.

    There is one reason for disproportionate wealth and power. Racism. All groups are equal. An unequal outcome among groups, with sample sizes causing normalization of numbers, is always the result of racism. No race is inferior and thereby doomed to disproportionate poverty.

    Poverty has many symptoms and cycles. Disproportionate poverty has only one cause.

    I think the sensitivity dial is tweaked too high all the way around. Though social injustices should be addressed sensibly.

    What we have going around the country is a combination of righteous indignation, racial oppression, overreaction, economic disparity, 40 million out of work, locked-in fever, political intolerance, broken gov, mob violence, activism, and other factors. A perfect storm of ****.

    I think elitism is a form of racism in that it denigrates minorities and impoverished whites 'almost' equally. DJT seems to be more elitist than pure racist, though he's not above using their votes.

    Poverty, historically, was more about racism or euro-based elitism but now is primarily about favoritism, education, experience, intellect, providence, qualifications, background, pedigree, luck, age, looks, and less about skin color. If you possess the right amount of ingredients, you can advance financially in today's world, especially if you're a minority. But monetary oppression, leveraged income disparity, and negative cultural stereotypes do still weigh heavily in society.

    No just my natural reaction to your illogical ill educated horse crap. Almost all people, whether white or otherwise are not naturally racist. The United States is certainly not a racist country nor are all of or even a large minority of the country.

    The definition of racism I am using is as follows.
    prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.
    I provide the definition of bigot for comparison.
    a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.
    Both definitions are from the Oxford Dictionary
    Semper Fidelis, Semper Liber.

    Everyone has prejudices.........everyone.

    The usual numb skulls on here quite often use the term racist in place of prejudice.
