The following was a difficult read because justifies what’s in the vile minds of liberal racists and is also an example of what blacks call “dirty laundry”: bad stuff about black folk never to be said around whites.

The essay was posted on Craigslist and it’s the kind of truth that often is taken back out of PC fear….

Essay by a teacher in a black high school
*This is a repost from the rants and raves section from the Mobile, Alabama craigslist.*

The truth is usually a tough thing to accept, so I understand if this is flagged. It would be a cowardly thing to do, but I understand it. Some people just ignore unpleasant truths. However, if you think ignoring the problem, or trying to censor the truth, will help our black children improve, you’re dreaming. This is important, so I’m happy to repost – indefinitely if necessary. I find it interesting that NO ONE has had the intellect to refute anything in the essay. They can only attempt to censor it, as if doing so somehow makes it invalid. Weak minds, weak minds.

Until recently I taught at a predominantly black high school in a southeastern state.

The mainstream press gives a hint of what conditions are like in black schools, but only a hint. Expressions journalists use like “chaotic” or “poor learning environment” or “lack of discipline” do not capture what really happens. There is nothing like the day-to-day experience of teaching black children and that is what I will try to convey.

Most whites simply do not know what black people are like in large numbers, and the first encounter can be a shock.

One of the most immediately striking things about my students was that they were loud. They had little conception of ordinary decorum. It was not unusual for five blacks to be screaming at me at once. Instead of calming down and waiting for a lull in the din to make their point — something that occurs to even the dimmest white students — blacks just tried to yell over each other.

It did no good to try to quiet them, and white women were particularly inept at trying. I sat in on one woman’s class as she begged the children to pipe down. They just yelled louder so their voices would carry over hers.

Many of my black students would repeat themselves over and over again — just louder. It was as if they suffered from Tourette syndrome. They seemed to have no conception of waiting for an appropriate time to say something. They would get ideas in their heads and simply had to shout them out. I might be leading a discussion on government and suddenly be interrupted: “We gotta get more Democrats! Clinton, she good!” The student may seem content with that outburst but two minutes later, he would suddenly start yelling again: “Clinton good!”

Anyone who is around young blacks will probably get a constant diet of rap music. Blacks often make up their own jingles, and it was not uncommon for 15 black boys to swagger into a classroom, bouncing their shoulders and jiving back.

They were yelling back and forth, rapping 15 different sets of words in the same harsh, rasping dialect. The words were almost invariably a childish form of boasting: “Who got dem shine rim, who got dem shine shoe, who got dem shine grill (gold and silver dental caps)?” The amateur rapper usually ends with a claim–in the crudest terms imaginable — that all womankind is sexually devoted to him. For whatever reason, my students would often groan instead of saying a particular word, as in, “She suck dat aaahhhh (think of a long grinding groan), she f**k dat aaaahhhh, she lick dat aaaahhh.”

Black women love to dance — in a way white people might call gyrating. So many black girls dance in the hall, in the classroom, on the chairs, next to the chairs, under the chairs, everywhere. Once I took a call on my cell phone and had to step outside of class. I was away about two minutes but when I got back the black girls had lined up at the front of the classroom and were convulsing to the delight of the boys.

Many black people, especially black women, are enormously fat. Some are so fat I had to arrange special seating to accommodate their bulk. I am not saying there are no fat white students — there are — but it is a matter of numbers and attitudes. Many black girls simply do not care that they are fat. There are plenty of white anorexics, but I have never met or heard of a black anorexic.

“Black women be big Mr. Jackson,” my students would explain.


“Is it okay in the black community to be a little overweight?” I ask. Two obese black girls in front of my desk begin to dance, “You know dem boys lak juicy fruit, Mr. Jackson.” “Juicy” is a colorful black expression for the buttocks.

Blacks, on average, are the most directly critical people I have ever met: “Dat shirt stupid. Yo’ kid a bastard. Yo’ lips big.” Unlike whites, who tread gingerly around the subject of race, they can be brutally to the point. Once I needed to send a student to the office to deliver a message. I asked for volunteers, and suddenly you would think my classroom was a bastion of civic engagement. Thirty dark hands shot into the air. My students loved to leave the classroom and slack off, even if just for a few minutes, away from the eye of white authority. I picked a light-skinned boy to deliver the message. One very black student was indignant: “You pick da half-breed.” And immediately other blacks take up the cry, and half a dozen mouths are screaming, “He half-breed.”

For decades, the country has been lamenting the poor academic performance of blacks and there is much to lament. There is no question, however, that many blacks come to school with a serious handicap that is not their fault. At home they have learned a dialect that is almost a different language. Blacks not only mispronounce words; their grammar is often wrong. When a black wants to ask, “Where is the bathroom?” he may actually say “Whar da badroom be?” Grammatically, this is the equivalent of “Where the bathroom is?” And this is the way they speak in high school. Students write the way they speak, so this is the language that shows up in written assignments.

It is true that some whites face a similar handicap. They speak with what I would call a “country” accent that is hard to reproduce but results in sentences such as “I’m gonna gemme a Coke.” Some of these country whites had to learn correct pronunciation and usage. The difference is that most whites overcome this handicap and learn to speak correctly; many blacks do not.

Most of the blacks I taught simply had no interest in academic subjects. I taught history, and students would often say they didn’t want to do an assignment or they didn’t like history because it was all about white people. Of course, this was “diversity” history, in which every cowboy’s black cook got a special page on how he contributed to winning the West, but black children still found it inadequate. So I would throw up my hands and assign them a project on a real, historical black person. My favorite was Marcus Garvey. They had never heard of him, and I would tell them to research him, but they never did. They didn’t care and they didn’t want to do any work.

Anyone who teaches blacks soon learns that they have a completely different view of government from whites. Once I decided to fill 25 minutes by having students write about one thing the government should do to improve America. I gave this question to three classes totaling about 100 students, approximately 80 of whom were black. My few white students came back with generally “conservative” ideas. “We need to cut off people who don’t work,” was the most common suggestion. Nearly every black gave a variation on the theme of “We need more government services.”

My students had only the vaguest notion of who pays for government services. For them, it was like a magical piggy bank that never goes empty. One black girl was exhorting the class on the need for more social services and I kept trying to explain that people, real live people, are taxed for the money to pay for those services. “Yeah, it come from whites,” she finally said. “They stingy anyway.”

“Many black people make over $50,000 dollars a year and you would also be taking away from your own people,” I said.

She had an answer to that: “Dey half breed.” The class agreed. I let the subject drop.

Many black girls are perfectly happy to be welfare queens. On career day, one girl explained to the class that she was going to have lots of children and get fat checks from the government. No one in the class seemed to have any objection to this career choice.

Surprising attitudes can come out in class discussion. We were talking about the crimes committed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and I brought up the rape of a young girl in the bathroom of the Superdome. A majority of my students believed this was a horrible crime but a few took it lightly. One black boy spoke up without raising his hand: “Dat no big deal. They thought they is gonna die so they figured they have some fun. Dey jus’ wanna have a fun time; you know what I’m sayin’?” A few black heads nodded in agreement.

My department head once asked all the teachers to get a response from all students to the following question: “Do you think it is okay to break the law if it will benefit you greatly?” By then, I had been teaching for a while and was not surprised by answers that left a young, liberal, white woman colleague aghast. “Yeah” was the favorite answer. As one student explained, “Get dat green.”

There is a level of conformity among blacks that whites would find hard to believe. They like one kind of music: rap. They will vote for one political party: Democrat. They dance one way, speak one way, are loud the same way, and fail their exams in the same way. Of course, there are exceptions but they are rare.

Whites are different. Some like country music, others heavy metal, some prefer pop, and still others, God forbid, enjoy rap music. They have different associations, groups, almost ideologies. There are jocks, nerds, preppies, and hunters. Blacks are all — well — black, and they are quick to let other blacks know when they deviate from the norm.

One might object that there are important group differences among blacks that a white man simply cannot detect. I have done my best to find them, but so far as I can tell, they dress the same, talk the same, think the same. Certainly, they form rival groups, but the groups are not different in any discernible way. There simply are no groups of blacks that are as distinctly different from each other as white “nerds,” “hunters,” or “Goths,” for example.


How the world looks to blacks: One point on which all blacks agree is that everything is “racis’.” This is one message of liberalism they have absorbed completely. Did you do your homework? “Na, homework racis’.” Why did you get an F on the test? “Test racis’.”

I was trying to teach a unit on British philosophers and the first thing the students noticed about Bentham, Hobbes, and Locke was “Dey all white! Where da black philosopher a’?” I tried to explain there were no blacks in eighteenth century Britain. You can probably guess what they said to that: “Dat racis’!” One student accused me of deliberately failing him on a test because I didn’t like black people.

“Do you think I really hate black people?”
“Yeah.”
“Have I done anything to make you feel this way? How do you know?”
“You just do.”
“Why do you say that?”

He just smirked, looked out the window, and sucked air through his teeth. Perhaps this was a regional thing, but the blacks often sucked air through their teeth as a wordless expression of disdain or hostility.

My students were sometimes unable to see the world except through the lens of their own blackness. I had a class that was host to a German exchange student. One day he put on a Power Point presentation with famous German landmarks as well as his school and family.

From time to time during the presentation, blacks would scream, “Where da black folk?!” The exasperated German tried several times to explain that there were no black people where he lived in Germany. The students did not believe him. I told them Germany is in Europe, where white people are from, and Africa is where black people are from. They insisted that the German student was racist, and deliberately refused to associate with blacks.

Blacks are keenly interested in their own racial characteristics. I have learned, for example, that some blacks have “good hair.” Good hair is black parlance for black-white hybrid hair. Apparently, it is less kinky, easier to style, and considered more attractive. Blacks are also proud of light skin. Imagine two black students shouting insults across the room. One is dark but slim; the other light and obese. The dark one begins the exchange: “You fat, Ridario!” Ridario smiles, doesn’t deign to look at his detractor, shakes his head like a wobbling top, and says, “You wish you light skinned.”

They could go on like this, repeating the same insults over and over.

My black students had nothing but contempt for Hispanic immigrants. They would vent their feelings so crudely that our department strongly advised us never to talk about immigration in class in case the principal or some outsider might overhear.

Whites were “racis’,” of course, but they thought of us at least as Americans. Not the Mexicans. Blacks have a certain, not necessarily hostile understanding of white people. They know how whites act, and it is clear they believe whites are smart and are good at organizing things. At the same time, they probably suspect whites are just putting on an act when they talk about equality, as if it is all a sham that makes it easier for whites to control blacks. Blacks want a bigger piece of the American pie. I’m convinced that if it were up to them they would give whites a considerably smaller piece than whites get now, but they would give us something. They wouldn’t give Mexicans anything.

What about black boys and white girls? No one is supposed to notice this or talk about it but it is glaringly obvious: Black boys are obsessed with white girls. I’ve witnessed the following drama countless times. A black boy saunters up to a white girl. The cocky black dances around her, not really in a menacing way. It’s more a shuffle than a threat. As he bobs and shuffles he asks, “When you gonna go wit’ me?”

There are two kinds of reply. The more confident white girl gets annoyed, looks away from the black and shouts, “I don’t wanna go out with you!” The more demure girl will look at her feet and mumble a polite excuse but ultimately say no.

There is only one response from the black boy: “You racis’.” Many girls — all too many — actually feel guilty because they do not want to date blacks. Most white girls at my school stayed away from blacks, but a few, particularly the ones who were addicted to drugs, fell in with them.

There is something else that is striking about blacks. They seem to have no sense of romance, of falling in love. What brings men and women together is sex, pure and simple, and there is a crude openness about this. There are many degenerate whites, of course, but some of my white students were capable of real devotion and tenderness, emotions that seemed absent from blacks — especially the boys.

Black schools are violent and the few whites who are too poor to escape are caught in the storm. The violence is astonishing, not so much that it happens, but the atmosphere in which it happens. Blacks can be smiling, seemingly perfectly content with what they are doing, having a good time, and then, suddenly start fighting. It’s uncanny. Not long ago, I was walking through the halls and a group of black boys were walking in front of me. All of a sudden they started fighting with another group in the hallway.

Blacks are extraordinarily quick to take offense. Once I accidentally scuffed a black boy’s white sneaker with my shoe. He immediately rubbed his body up against mine and threatened to attack me. I stepped outside the class and had a security guard escort the student to the office. It was unusual for students to threaten teachers physically this way, but among themselves, they were quick to fight for similar reasons.


The real victims are the unfortunate whites caught in this. They are always in danger and their educations suffer. White weaklings are particularly susceptible, but mostly to petty violence. They may be slapped or get a couple of kicks when they are trying to open a bottom locker. Typically, blacks save the hard, serious violence for each other.

There was a lot of promiscuous sex among my students and this led to violence. Black girls were constantly fighting over black boys. It was not uncommon to see two girls literally ripping each other’s hair out with a police officer in the middle trying to break up the fight. The black boy they were fighting over would be standing by with a smile, enjoying the show he had created. For reasons I cannot explain, boys seldom fought over girls.

Pregnancy was common among the blacks, though many black girls were so fat I could not tell the difference. I don’t know how many girls got abortions, but when they had the baby they usually stayed in school and had their own parents look after the child. The school did not offer daycare.

Aside from the police officers constantly on patrol, a sure sign that you are in a black school is the coke cage: the chain-link fence that many majority-black schools use to protect vending machines. The cage surrounds the machine and even covers its top. Delivery employees have to unlock a gate on the front of the cage to service the machines. Companies would prefer not to build cages around vending machines. They are expensive, ugly, and a bother, but black students smashed the machines so many times it was cheaper to build a cage than repair the damage. Rumor had it that before the cages went up blacks would turn the machines upside down in the hope that the money would fall out.

Security guards are everywhere in black schools — we had one on every hall. They also sat in on unruly classes and escorted students to the office. They were unarmed, but worked closely with the three city police officers who were constantly on duty.

There was a lot of drug-dealing at my school. This was a good way to make a fair amount of money but it also gave boys power over girls who wanted drugs. An addicted girl — black or white — became the plaything of anyone who could get her drugs.

One of my students was a notorious drug dealer. Everyone knew it. He was 19 years old and in eleventh grade. Once he got a score of three out of 100 on a test. He had been locked up four times since he was 13.

One day, I asked him, “Why do you come to school?”

He wouldn’t answer. He just looked out the window, smiled, and sucked air through his teeth. His friend Yidarius ventured an explanation: “He get dat green and get dem females.”

“What is the green?” I asked. “Money or dope?” “Both,” said Yidarius with a smile.

A very fat black interrupted from across the room: “We get dat lunch,” Mr. Jackson. “We gotta get dat lunch and brickfuss.” He means the free breakfast and lunch poor students get every day. “Nigga, we know’d you be lovin’ brickfuss!” shouts another student.

Some readers may believe that I have drawn a cruel caricature of black students. After all, according to official figures some 85 percent of them graduate. It would be instructive to know how many of those scraped by with barely a C- record. They go from grade to grade and they finally get their diplomas because there is so much pressure on teachers to push them through. It saves money to move them along, the school looks good, and the teachers look good.

Many of these children should have been failed, but the system would crack under their weight if they were all held back.

How did my experiences make me feel about blacks? Ultimately, I lost sympathy for them. In so many ways they seem to make their own beds. There they were in an integrationist’s fantasy–in the same classroom with white students, eating the same lunch, using the same bathrooms, listening to the same teachers–and yet the blacks fail while the whites pass.

One tragic outcome among whites who have been teaching for too long is that it can engender something close to hatred. One teacher I knew gave up fast food–not for health reasons but because where he lived most fast-food workers were black. He had enough of blacks on the job. This was an extreme example but years of frustration can take their toll. Many of my white colleagues with any experience were well on their way to that state of mind.

There is an unutterable secret among teachers: Almost all realize that blacks do not respond to traditional white instruction. Does that put the lie to environmentalism? Not at all. It is what brings about endless, pointless innovation that is supposed to bring blacks up to the white level. The solution is more diversity–or put more generally, the solution is change. Change is an almost holy word in education, and you can fail a million times as long as you keep changing. That is why liberals keep revamping the curriculum and the way it is taught. For example, teachers are told that blacks need hands-on instruction and more group work.


Teachers are told that blacks are more vocal and do not learn through reading and lectures. The implication is that they have certain traits that lend themselves to a different kind of teaching.

Whites have learned a certain way for centuries but it just doesn’t work with blacks. Of course, this implies racial differences but if pressed, most liberal teachers would say different racial learning styles come from some indefinable cultural characteristic unique to blacks. Therefore, schools must change, America must change. But into what? How do you turn quantum physics into hands-on instruction or group work? No one knows, but we must keep changing until we find something that works.

Public school has certainly changed since anyone reading this was a student. I have a friend who teaches elementary school, and she tells me that every week the students get a new diversity lesson, shipped in fresh from some bureaucrat’s office in Washington or the state capital. She showed me the materials for one week: a large poster, about the size of a forty-two inch flat-screen television. It shows an utterly diverse group — I mean diverse: handicapped, Muslim, Jewish, effeminate, poor, rich, brown, slightly brown, yellow, etc.–sitting at a table, smiling gaily, accomplishing some undefined task. The poster comes with a sheet of questions the teacher is supposed to ask. One might be: “These kids sure look different, but they look happy. Can you tell me which one in the picture is an American?”

Some eight-year-old, mired in ignorance, will point to a white child like himself. “That one.”

The teacher reads from the answer, conveniently printed along with the question. “No, Billy, all these children are Americans. They are just as American as you.”

The children get a snack, and the poster goes up on the wall until another one comes a week later. This is what happens at predominately white, middle-class, elementary schools everywhere. Elementary school teachers love All of the Colors of the Race, by award-winning children’s poet Arnold Adoff.

These are some of the lines they read to the children: “Mama is chocolate . . . Daddy is vanilla . . . Me (sic) is better . . . It is a new color. It is a new flavor. For love. Sometimes blackness seems too black for me, and whiteness is too sickly pale; and I wish every one were golden. Remember: long ago before people moved and migrated, and mixed and matched . . . there was one people: one color, one race. The colors are flowing from what was before me to what will be after. All the colors.”

Teaching as a career: It may come as a surprise after what I have written, but my experiences have given me a deep appreciation for teaching as a career. It offers a stable, middle-class life but comes with the capacity to make real differences in the lives of children. In our modern, atomized world children often have very little communication with adults — especially, or even, with their parents — so there is potential for a real transaction between pupil and teacher, disciple and master.

A rewarding relationship can grow up between an exceptional, interested student and his teacher. I have stayed in my classroom with a group of students discussing ideas and playing chess until the janitor kicked us out. I was the old gentleman, imparting my history, culture, personal loves and triumphs, defeats and failures to young kinsman. Sometimes I fancied myself Tyrtaeus, the Spartan poet, who counseled the youth to honor and loyalty. I never had this kind intimacy with a black student, and I know of no other white teacher who did.

Teaching can be fun. For a certain kind of person it is exhilarating to map out battles on chalkboards, and teach heroism. It is rewarding to challenge liberal prejudices, to leave my mark on these children, but what I aimed for with my white students I could never achieve with the blacks.

There is a kind of child whose look can melt your heart: some working-class castaway, in and out of foster homes, often abused, who is nevertheless almost an angel. Your heart melts for these children, this refuse of the modern world.

Many white students possess a certain innocence; their cheeks still blush. Try as I might, I could not get the blacks to care one bit about Beethoven or Sherman’s march to the sea, or Tyrtaeus, or Oswald Spengler, or even liberals like John Rawls, or their own history. They cared about nothing I tried to teach them. When this goes on year after year it chokes the soul out of a teacher, destroys his pathos, and sends him guiltily searching for The Bell Curve on the Internet.

Blacks break down the intimacy that can be achieved in the classroom, and leave you convinced that that intimacy is really a form of kinship. Without intending to, they destroy what is most beautiful–whether it be your belief in human equality, your daughter’s innocence, or even the state of the hallway.

Just last year I read on the bathroom stall the words “F**k Whitey.” Not two feet away, on the same stall, was a small swastika.

The National Council for the Social Studies, the leading authority on social science education in the United States, urges teachers to inculcate such values as equality of opportunity, individual property rights, and a democratic form of government. Even if teachers could inculcate this milquetoast ideology into whites, liberalism is doomed because so many non-whites are not receptive to education of any kind beyond the merest basics.


It is impossible to get them to care about such abstractions as property rights or democratic citizenship. They do not see much further than the fact that you live in a big house and “we in da pro-jek.” Of course, there are a few loutish whites who will never think past their next meal and a few sensitive blacks for whom anything is possible, but no society takes on the characteristics of its exceptions.

Once I asked my students, “What do you think of the Constitution?” “It white,” one slouching black rang out. The class began to laugh. And I caught myself laughing along with them, laughing while Pompeii’s volcano simmers, while the barbarians swell around the Palatine, while the country I love, and the job I love, and the community I love become dimmer by the day.

I read a book by an expatriate Rhodesian who visited Zimbabwe not too many years ago. Traveling with a companion, she stopped at a store along the highway. A black man materialized next to her car window. “Job, boss, (I) work good, boss,” he pleaded. “You give job.”

“What happened to your old job?” the expatriate white asked. The black man replied in the straightforward manner of his race: “We drove out the whites. No more jobs. You give job.”

At some level, my students understand the same thing. One day I asked the bored, black faces staring back at me. “What would happen if all the white people in America disappeared tomorrow?”

“We screwed,” a young, pitch-black boy screamed back. The rest of the blacks laughed.

I have had children tell me to my face as they struggled with an assignment. “I cain’t do dis,” Mr. Jackson. “I black.”

The point is that human beings are not always rational. It is in the black man’s interest to have whites in Zimbabwe but he drives them out and starves. Most whites do not think black Americans could ever do anything so irrational. They see blacks on television smiling, fighting evil whites, embodying white values. But the real black is not on television, and you pull your purse closer when you see him, and you lock the car doors when he swaggers by with his pants hanging down almost to his knees.

For those of you with children, better a smaller house in a white district than a fancy one near a black school.

I have been in parent-teacher conferences that broke my heart: the child pleading with his parents to take him out of school; the parents convinced their child’s fears are groundless. If you love your child, show her you care — not by giving her fancy vacations or a car, but making her innocent years safe and happy. Give her the gift of a not-heavily black school.

Wow.

    I find this interesting how one minor point in a person’s comment (about Mitt) has become the focal point of everyone’s anger. Having been raised in the Bay Area, and having both black and white friends, I agree with this writer. I found NO errors in his observations. None. Remember, these are stated observations. Not hyperbole. Excluding the miniscule few, black males ARE obsessed with “getting” white females, blacks DON’T want to work for their keep, blacks ARE more violent, blacks will NOT work to help themselves, blacks DO want babies to get the green, blacks feel entitled, blacks hate whites for NO other reason than they were trained that way, black culture and white cultures do not mix. Now, there are a few isolated cases where none of this is true, but we’re talking about the norm. What is the “norm” for this race? Violence, hatred, envy, etc. I will not comment on this presidential administration only to say that Obama has not experienced prejudice nearly to the extent the average black has. I am all for standing up to racism. Not with violence but with intelligence. Speak out when you see it. Say something respectfully but say it. Protect ANYONE that is being discriminated against. Show love and respect.

    So, in conclusion, generally, blacks are ignorant.. by choice. And, until they choose to fight back with intelligence and grace, they will be constrained in this society.>

      In the U.S., I, as an American in the suburbs, can drive through the city and say, “that black is a drug dealer. Or look at those blacks tearing down their town in angry, violent protest.” In Greece, I as a Greek, would only be able to say, “look at that poor, uneducated person dealing drugs, or look at my fellow country folk, tearing down their house. He or she is my brother or sister.” Committing any of our America brothers and sisters who happen to be black, Latino, or whatever, to the Other is an ignorant, lazy and myopic grasp of the world we live in.

      I would suggest to every reader and commenter here that the “differences” between whites and blacks so speciously crystallized above exist between some blacks and some whites, but not all of them. But the true difference between the subjects of the above article and it’s author is, quite simply, money. And the money is a vehicle that carries out the socioeconomic and political realities of life in the suburbs, or life in the inner city.

      I am white from Minnesota. I challenge you to find any person with black skin who is less like me than my white cousin down in Hicksville, Indiana.

    Listen up black people, slavery ended a century and a half ago, stop using it as a crutch to excuse your obvious flaws. Get over it! Get your backside down to recruitment center and get a job at your favourite place, KFC. Then you will achieve some balance in your life, and won’t have to blame evil whitey for your failings and very shortcomings.

      85% of blacks WORK. Like I said, your level of delusion is AMAZAING.

      It wouldn’t matter if we were 100% employed and committed less crime than whites, you would still hate us. You would just find another stupid justification for the hate. Stop lying to yourself.

        Lol, unemployment for blacks is 12.6% If you could do math that means that 87% of black people are working.

        I know that hurts your feelings because you wish all blacks were unemployed. Sorry to burst your bubble.

        A little understanding about how unemployment percentages work will help you a little to better understand the landscape. As of May, 62% of the black population are capable of or are trying to get a job. The rest are children, old people, encarcerated or are not looking. Of that 62%, 85% have jobs. Probably about a third of black people that can work, do not.

    Why does Andre accuse everyone of being racist? He has replied to every comment on here, and this article is well over year old. e is still commenting now, which leads me to believe he has no job, and the broadband he is using is paid for by the evil whitey taxpayer.

    I grew up in various parts of Los Angeles county and truly value the diversity that I experienced. From K through 12. My classmates were black American, black African, Isreali, Lebanese, Armenian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic… you name it. Mutual friends all of us…even the Isreali and Lebanese girls (girls who seemed like sisters more than friends). I never experienced any racial prejudice except from white people; but not every single one of them. Some just had a better command of their predisposed notions, not projecting them in such an obvious manner. And many were just plain, genuinely good people. Having a sheriffs narcotics detective for a mentor (who was American of Mexican descent, but showed prejudice only for blacks but not whites) for most of my childhood into my teens, I learned from him how to read people quite well. Studying psychology later in college helped me to refine this skill. Let me tell you, there is prejudice in ALL OF US, BUT NOT NECESSARILY RACISM. Prejudice and racism (not to be confused with the adjective, “racial” are two concepts (nouns) that (due to academic ignorance and the break down in peoples written and verbal communication) are often confused for one another by the great majority of people. They walk a similar path, but are very different. One term references predisposed biases (either factually or ignorantly based), and the other term promotes the assumed superiority of one group over another in addition to imposing economic and/or social dominance by the group that is purported to be superior. Who here can distinguish between the two definitions? Many cannot, and I feel that this is just one small part of a huge problem with the HUMAN RACE today. The most difficult challenge is to view and approach PEOPLE as PEOPLE!; and while I cannot argue with much of what the author has written (having seen many, many examples of such behavior) this is the one fatal flaw in this “educators” writing; and that is that he does not see PEOPLE (and I can hardly fault him for that), but he sees only “blacks”. And while I read very little that could allow me to support any tone of racism, as he does mention having observed similar behavior in other “classifications” of PEOPLE, the prejudice is quite obvious. Again, having my own confessed prejudices, I can hardly fault him. But I too have observed these behaviors in many other people (of various back ground) all over the world. I’ve traveled quite a bit, and I am of the opinion that, while what he describes as a grossly disproportionate trait of the particular classification of people to which he frequently refers with reference to pigment, I feel that it is a HUMAN PROBLEM and not a BLACK one. It is not my intent to attack this person, as I feel complete EMPATHY for him (although I do not detect any on his part). I say this because the one thing that is not addressed in this well written piece of his is the questions “HOW DID IT COME TO THIS?”, “what circumstances, either social, historical, anthropological, etc contributed to this human wretchedness; not just where he lives but also in so many other places (outside of the American bubble) in the world (to which the author has likely not traveled)?” Just like modern “medicine” these days, we fixate on the symptoms of a disease rather than face the difficult task of identifying and eliminating the CAUSES! And why? Because it takes more work and effort to do so than it does to bitch about and simply TREAT or exacerbate the symptoms. I have seen human wretchedness in all skin colors, and on all social and economic levels. And it is a HUMAN PROBLEM! It is extremely challenging for anyone (including myself) to rise above our human weaknesses and ignorance; and to evolve in order to see PEOPLE AS PEOPLE; and even more challenging to reflect back upon our own flaws, in the institutions, establishments, conditions, and circumstances (from which people like the author and myself have mostly benefited) that have (WITHOUT MUCH EMPATHY) brought PEOPLE everywhere, to such wretchedness. To the Author, I say, very well written. I envy your skill and I can see that you have a gifted mind. DON’T LIMIT IT TO SEEING ONLY IN BLACK AND WHITE; especially when the color “HUMAN” IS SO DIVERSE AND BRILLIANT. If it is within your means, Pursue a Masters (if you do not already have one) or PHD in humanities, ethics, or literature. It would be a waste of your good mind not to do so.

    I’ll never fully trust one of them animals again,after seeing them all cry for slug trayvon and calling muslim obama their savior

    I found some information,It makes a lot of sense,It explains a lot.

    Adam and Eve have only their own seed within themselves, so can only produce their own kind. Yet we are asked by intellectual prostitutes to believe that all races came from Adam and Eve. To produce another race or species, another seed would be necessary. When different races mix, they do not bring forth their own kind; their offspring are mongrels or hybrids. This is a transgression against Divine Law, upsetting Nature’s delicate balance and producing THAT WHICH IS NOT GOOD. Little wonder that, so often in the past, God has destroyed His own children for mongrelizing, and, you can be sure, He will again.

    We could go on indefinitely quoting Scripture to prove that the negro is merely an articulate member of the beast creation. Even though he has not been given the intelligence and Spiritual understanding of the White Race, he can think and reason up to a point, therefore he is to have dominion over the other animals.

    Let us give credit where credit is due, the negro is King, KING OF THE BEASTS.

    For proof that they are beasts, and God calls them exactly that, may I refer you to the following passages:

    I feel very badly about this essay. I have several black friends that worked very hard to pick themselves up out of poverty. They are very successful. If the children do not receive positive guidance from their parents, teachers, reverends and each other, then there is no hope for them or America.

    Blacks have very low IQs. That’s a fact. Even the somewhat more intelligent of them think totally “black” though. I know a black woman, extremely religious, seemingly smart, raised and lives around whites. She still voted for Obama twice and doesn’t see ANY conflict with her religious views for doing so. There is no hope for any of these people. The intelligent ones (Sowell, Thomas, Williams, etc.) are the exception. The only thing whites can do is to live as far away from them as possible.

    THANK YOU for being honest. I attended a predominantly black school system growing up. I’m white and was targeted almost daily by low-life black racist thugs. I’m not saying all the blacks I met were thugs – but certainly a majority of them were and this was 40 years ago. The problem is that you can’t reason with these animals – they have no humanity or decency. Look at black on white crimes and violence (see DOJ). It’s only been getting worse since the civil rights act. Yet the PC lamestream media largely choses to ignore the problem, or turns it around and has the audacity to call us racist for pointing out a BIG problem..

    I spent 7-8 minutes reading the political argument that was born from this tragic cry for help, and I gave up trying to care about the politics some people think have created this environment.
    the only thing I will say is that politics, left, right, up your ass, it doesn’t matter because this is an artificially created situation by those who control America’s finances and public opinion. or at least what we’re told is public opinion.
    the fact that this teacher is subjected to a horrendously agonizing torture at least 5 days a week is inexcusable. most teachers decide to pursue pedagogy as a career, not because of the mountains of cash to be made, but because they have an honest love for learning and the academic arts.
    to watch a group of people as a whole consistently defile, debase, debauch, deform and outright rape one of the things he holds to the highest esteem deserves nothing but our pity and our empathy. (note I did not say sympathy.) yet day after day he is forced to fight a battle that was lost from day one. as a young aspiring intellectual grinding out the 6 years it takes to become a highschool teacher, I bet he had no idea he was going to be wasting his time trying to “ejumakayt’um dem blackies”.
    English was my major in college. I was going to teach…. until I learned the current state of affairs is a sinking ship and it would be 6 years of my life I would never get back, plus its been my experience if you care about the English language, have a public library, and are literate enough to understand most words encountered, you really don’t need an English course as anything more than a formality.
    if this guy wants to teach students who actually want to learn, he ought to start looking overseas. those kids, or their parents, seem to know what’s important.
    of course, by important, I mean what is important to us white folk, and apparently Asians hold some of the same standards. segregation really is the way to go, that way each body of students can receive the education curriculum that they need. I would love to see a teacher stand in front of a group of 30-40 black teenagers and say something like “may I have your attention please, NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP! good, now that you little nigglets are listening ive got some information that very likely SAVE YOUR ASS in the future, so you better pay attention as best you motherfucking monkeys can.”
    I guarantee that would get their attention. why? because its using the same format that they operate in, plus I doubt they’re used to honesty from whites. (if your reading this teacher-man, it’s why that kid insisted your racist and simply not being honest. because it true.)
    meanwhile whites can obtain the traditional instruction that has been effective in the transference of idea’s and ideals for centuries.
    BUT,(holy Christ, that turned into a rant. sorry, and thanks if your still reading) I guarantee that the system must break before true reform can happen. simply passing these crude human beings and getting them out of the school system is counter-productive to enacting real effective change. not only does it poison our society and bring standards down as a whole, but it gives the government the numbers it needs to show evidence that this method of schooling works.
    in closing, I would to say that I really doubt your students would fault you for being openly racist, they all understand the race issues at hand and are doing their best to discuss it, albeit in what whites would consider an unrefined manner. they understand that your not black, and are fundamentally different from them. they might even afford you some respect as one of the few honest white people out there.
    good luck

    This has to be one of the worst articles about black people I have ever read. Yes, the author is right in a sense that a lot of black people act in such a way. But why do they act like this? Well whom do they have to look up to nowadays? Black people have rappers, reality T.V. personalities, athletes, the neighborhood drug dealer, alcoholic moms who went through pregnancy in her teens, either no dad or abusive dad, and the list can go on. The civil rights movement was one of the most monumental times of black history. You had BLACK men such as Martin King Luther Jr., Malcom X, Bayard Rustin, A. Philip Randolph who stood for something that young black men could be proud of. Due to segregation, there were black people who were dentists, doctors, store owners etc. Because of this, people had the older generation to look up to. But what happen with desegregation? Less black people in this occupations. White people on the other hand have an endless list of people who they can look up to as an example of how to act. Generations and generations of STEM and other professionals who live in functional families with nice house, and in most cases no care in the world. Do white people feel like they are being weighed down by a statistic? NO. Do white people get judged by the color of their skin? NO. Most white people are taught how to spend, invest, and save their money, but many blacks only know one thing: spend.
    The point that I’m trying to make is that it is going to take a black person(s) to step up to the plate, and become relatable to the younger generation. Someone who will be able to show that hey I like to rap, I like to play sports, but guess what else? I’m an engineer, I’m a doctor, I’m a scientist. And yes, yes, there are plenty of those, but I mean someone who will do something great like Steve Jobs did with Apple. We need a role model who stands for something great, instead of sex, drugs, and alcohol. The people who need to be targeted are the ones who’s mind have yet to be molded. Yes, there is Obama who has done a great job as most first black presidents would in the white house. I mean you have to figure… How many rich and powerful black billionaire friends does he have? And FYI, there are only 7 black billionaires out of a total 11,000 billionaires in the world. And you could argue, what does that have to do with anything? And I would laugh, because how do you think a lot of white politicians get so rich? Anyway, President Obama is about just as white as any other white person I know. He’s not Relatable to a lot of poor black people.
    And to the author, I think it is very insulting to me and all black people, as a young intelligent black man that you would claim that ALL black people act in such a way. You claim to be revealing the issue, but it seems like this was written for the sake of blowing off steam.

      There are plenty of black role models out there, but the media does their best to shut them up and disgrace them as much as possible. Allen West? Ben Carson? Larry Elder? Thomas Sowell? I mean thats four of dozens I could think of, but Liberals, as quickly as they can, label them as Uncle Toms and traitors. Conservatives like myself point to them and say, “There you go. It can be done, and it can be done well.” Like King, Rustin, and Randolph before them, they provide exceptional role models for the black community, but because Liberals stay in power by keeping black people down, these individuals are seen as a threat and silenced immediately.

      Instead we have people like Donna Edwards and Eric Holder and Al Sharpton claiming racism at every turn, and blaming white people for every problem when they darn well know the only way the black community can turn its situation is for an entire generation of black parents to say enough is enough. Fathers must stay home, teenagers can’t be getting pregnant, gangster rap cannot be revered, Church communities must be promoted, education MUST be a top priority, and lastly.. don’t spoil your damn kids. Force them to take responsibility for their actions. But all of this will never happen, as long as the media keeps Black people down by convincing them they are all victimized all the time by everyone, and there is still so much for them to fight for before they can reach “equality.”

      There is nobody to blame for the current state of affairs but the Progressive Liberal Democrats. They have been planting these seeds since the 70’s and now this destructive culture is here to stay for a long time.

    I find this interesting how one minor point in a person’s comment (about Mitt) has become the focal point of everyone’s anger. Having been raised in the Bay Area, and having both black and white friends, I agree with this writer. I found NO errors in his observations. None. Remember, these are stated observations. Not hyperbole. Excluding the miniscule few, black males ARE obsessed with “getting” white females, blacks DON’T want to work for their keep, blacks ARE more violent, blacks will NOT work to help themselves, blacks DO want babies to get the green, blacks feel entitled, blacks hate whites for NO other reason than they were trained that way, black culture and white cultures do not mix. Now, there are a few isolated cases where none of this is true, but we’re talking about the norm. What is the “norm” for this race? Violence, hatred, envy, etc. I will not comment on this presidential administration only to say that Obama has not experienced prejudice nearly to the extent the average black has. I am all for standing up to racism. Not with violence but with intelligence. Speak out when you see it. Say something respectfully but say it. Protect ANYONE that is being discriminated against. Show love and respect.

    So, in conclusion, generally, blacks are ignorant.. by choice. And, until they choose to fight back with intelligence and grace, they will be constrained in this society.

The American dream is not about free things it is about the opportunity through freedom to work and make yourself what ever you want. Blaming people who work hard for not giving enough to people who do not work at all is not what this country has ever been about. That is not about color it applies to those who work hard and those who don’t. There is no excuse, using racism to justify lack of effort may work in the short term to get $20 hr working at McDs but inflation keeps up with the poor economic decisions we make to pacify those unwilling to try. Say what you want, it is what it is. The proof is there for you to see if you are finished blaming everyone else for their actions, or lack there of.

    How incredibly sad. My hometown school where I went and sent my son is predominately white, the blacks that are there are from 2 parent homes.. and there is no difference in grades or behavior. The difference, I believe is a father in the home. Those children were born valued and wanted.. not a meal ticket. I hope in my lifetime I see a change in the black community.

    Reply
    • Andre Bonds

      That was a fair response. However, it is not about 2 parent homes. It is about economics. Let me explain.

      In 1965 the out of wedlock rate for blacks was about 24% the poverty rate was 36%. In 2012 the out of wedlock rate for blacks was 72% the poverty rate was 27%. If there was a correlation or even causation of babies being born out of wedlock and the poverty rate then when the out of wedlock rate tripled , the poverty rate would have rose in some way ..even if it was not 1 to 1. The fact that it dropped IN SPITE of the out of wedlock rate rising illustrates that there is very little correlation and ZERO causation.

      Now if you look at the difference between affluent single parent homes and poor 2 parent homes, you will also see that the scores and graduation rates are still higher in the single parent AFFLUENT homes. I’m sorry I don’t have those numbers but they are out there.

      Although, i understand the frustration of the author, he makes poor assumption and bigoted statements that are simply not true. I am not discounting his experience. I am just saying since only 27% of Blacks are in poverty these days and even all of those are not failing schools it is MATHEMATICALLY impossible for the “majority” of black students to be as he describes.

      I agree there needs to be some “more” change in the black community but we are only 40 years from Jim Crow….we need a little more time to reach some of the people whose minds are still enslaved by ignorance and animosity.

        Maybe in the affluent homes it took a real education to get there and the parent instills that? That would be true of any race, actually.
        I wonder too.. i see on the news in my city of Indy.. the constant murder and mayhem in the parts of town that are predominately black whether just the constant stress of living in that environment effects the brain. I say that as a person who had a terribly abusive marriage and that effected my ability to remember things.. cope in any setting.. ect.
        I dont know.. like I said.. its sad.. very sad the wasted lives of so many.

      • Andre Bonds

        Of course more stressful environments make it more difficult for people to excel in any area, much less school, so I agree with that assessment. But, again, my belief is economics help in all situations except how we love each other. Domestic violence falls under the “loving each other” category. I am truly sorry you we through the tragedy of abuse. All women should be treated like queens and cherished as treasures.

        Lastly, you have to resist the inclination to accept what the media portrays as the entire truth. Last year Blacks committed 4129 murders and whites committed 4000. In every other violent crime category white people committed almost 3 times as many in terms of sheer number. Given those numbers, does it make you wonder why you mostly only see news about the black crime unless it is a mass shooting? It is about ratings…not truth.

      • Ms Ryan

        Thank you. I’m fine now. That much stress must make things look pretty hopeless. What does that stress do to a child whose brain hasnt even fully formed?

    I teach technical subjects in a community college. The single biggest impediment to progress that I see blacks face is the almost total lack of math skills. Get a further technical education, a certificate, a diploma, a license… and it opens up so many doors to good jobs, higher pay, a good living…. Electrical skills are one of the most highly valued skills in industry… But it ain’t gonna happen without the math.

    It is understandable why children are leaving school worse off than when they started. If this person is an example of the teachers who are teaching our children of all races and cultures, then it is understandable, because ignorance begets ignorance.

    It sounds to me like the black kids shouldn’t be in school. At a certain age, barring the exceptional students, they should go to work performing menial labor. Not to sound racist, but field work is suitable. It requires the least amount of management to engage the most amount of people. The idle mind (and hand) is the devils workshop.

    Nothing has changed in raising children except one thing, discipline. Kids today can not be disciplined at all. I am not talking about race, just kids in general. All kids today know if mommy or daddy raise a hand to me they just need to make a call. The power is in the kids hands and they know it. The same goes for the schools, I am not saying bring back the ruler or switch to abuse the kids. But the kids are running wild in the class room, and it is all races.

Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face penalties for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are praising and counting down the days till ALL and ONLY white children are minorities and extinct EVERYWHERE.

    Wow! I have read most of the comments, and only one response had anything to do with the article. While I have no solutions to the problems in the black communities, I know what we have done to deal with them. We left. We moved to an area where there are 3% of any other race than white. It wasn’t because of race that we moved, but it sure is a nice perk. We lived in SC for many years. It was where I learned about racism. Black people hate white people. Period. Now, not all do but the majority do. If you can get a black alone you might have a chance at making friends or some emotional contact with them, but in a group? They hate whites. I didn’t grow up in a racist home, I was taught to love others different from yourself, to be tolerant of those different than yourself. My contact with the black people where I lived left me with mixed feelings. Disgust, that is the top layer. Anger, that’s in there because I feel like they are taking advantage of others and misuse opportunities they have to improve. They have equality in schools, jobs, life and yet they choose to bemoan and blame others for their own choices. I feel like I should not be angry or disgusted so I feel guilty that I feel angry and mostly disgusted. It’s like they don’t even try! They have been so enslaved and brainwashed they can’t even see they are cutting off their own noses to spite their faces! They have enslaved themselves in the Governments grasp, from physical chains to financial chains. Welfare is an enslavement trap and all too many people have fallen into it’s grasp. White and Black. It just seems the blacks are the most happy about it. They have allowed morals to be completely dissolved from their families, they teach no empathy to their children, no manners, no respect for themselves or others, no desire to improve to embrace all this life has to offer. It’s sad, it’s disgusting and no social programs will fix it, you can’t fix other people. You can only fix yourself.

      Lol, your prejudice and political affiliation color your observation. But understand this, there are approximately 30% of white people in America who are FULLY RACIST..that is..they believe white people are superior and minorities like blacks and Hispanics are second class citizens. That means there are more White racists than the ENTIRE BLACK population in this country. Now add to that the uninformed and overly emotional White people who are not necessarily racist, accept all manner of lies by conservatives, deny that racism exists, defends the systematic racism that exists, and promotes propaganda like this article to degrade, demonize, and dislike black people and now you have 3 times as many white people who dislike black people because of their color than the total population of Blacks in America. So, please let’s not pretend it is even POSSIBLE for blacks to be more racist than whites even though many black people are angry and racist.

      As for the farce about welfare that you believe just because the right wingers say it…let me ask you 2 questions.

      1) What was the percentage of poor BLACK AND WHITE people in poverty before welfare?

      2) What percentage of poor BLACK AND WHITE people are in poverty today?

      If the numbers did not increase after welfare was implemented, then it is logical to conclude that welfare is not making people poor or keeping them in poverty right?

        Where does this figure come from? Has the Census Bureau asked people if they are racist? Nope. The IRS? Nope. Or even Gallup or some other poll? Nope. I can only conclude someone pulled this percentage out of their posterior because neither I nor anyone I have ever known, has been asked if I/they are a racist by anyone–ever. Please reveal your source so we are enlightened..

      • Andre Bonds

        Tim Wise is the source. I don’t know how he came to the number because I would guess more than 30% but because is an expert on the subject of racism, I am not, and there are no OTHER estimates for me to go by…I use his. If you have a source that has a different number, I would be glad to see it.

        BTW, i don’t know anyone polled on smoking weed, but there are estimates on how many people do it. Educated guesses are accepted in many areas when there is no empirical evidence available.

        Do you believe there are fewer than 30% of white Americans who are racist?

      • ObamaSmellsBad

        What percent of Blacks are racist? Or is that predictably ok?

      • Andre Bonds

        I would guess about 20% of blacks are actually RACIST. That is to say that they believe they are superior based on their race. I believe about 50% of blacks have some animosity and/or prejudice against white people, however. You have to think about it..we still have parents and/or grandparents who lived through Jim Crow and lynchings who are still living! Some bad memories die hard.

      • tonymengela

        98% of every black I have met is very racist, the evidence was proven on the vote for Obama! None of you voted on his ability in his record or history as a politician or even his actions, you voted for him because he was BLACK and that is racist!

      • Andre Bonds

        We voted for Obama the first time because BUSH FUGGED THE COUNTRY UP ALMOST BEYOND REPAIR! …lol Daddy Bush hurt the poor and middle class and Reagan DESTROYED the poor and middle class. Why on EARTH would a poor or middle class person have voted for McCain and an Idiot Palin when Republicans had done so much to kill the poor and middle class? That was not a vote for Obama because he was black…it was a vote for a Democrat because Republicans keep killing us economically.

        For the record…Bill Clinton had as many black votes in his second term as Obama did his first term. Did we vote for Clinton because he was black too? lol And lastly, there are not enough black voters to put ANY PRESIDENT in office. WHITE LIBERALS and young WHITE swing voters put Obama in office. Did they vote for him based on his skin color also?

        So even you agree it’s a “guesstimate,” based on his poli-sci degree and his work in racial activism, right? And I have no different numbers to give you because I don’t believe they exist.

        And nobody gives a flying fig how many people smoke pot, so let so-called experts throw out numbers all they want to on that — It is unimportant. Pot smoking can be determined through drug testing and hair sampling, but something as serious as being a racist is very, very different and cannot be tested for..

        And, yes, I believe there are fewer than 30% of white Americans that are, as you say, FULLY racist. That’s my guesstimate and it ain’t worth any more spit than Tim Wise’s.

      • Andre Bonds

        So we shouldn’t accept the guesstimates, theories, or assertions of ANY experts who don’t have empirical evidence?

        Per capita crime in the black community means NOTHING to you. It is only political capital and a justification for bigotry.

        Are you more likely to be the victim of a crime at the hands of a white person or a black person?

        And let’s not make this personal. Let’s just stick to the topic.

      • Troubleshooter

        Absolutely a black person. I have been the victim of several attempts by blacks to attack and rob me. I’m 64 years old, and don’t look as able as I am. My 25 year old son was attacked and robbed by a group of blacks. He had a grocery bag in each hand, and when he walked out of the store, he was surrounded, obstructed, sucker punched, held from behind by two others, punched again, and robbed, of a pack of cigarettes, by 5 blacks. Just two weeks ago, I had a group of 8 or 9 blacks approach me on the sidewalk a couple of blocks from my building. One, a girl, tried to distract me by asking for money while the others tried to surround me. As the first two, one on each side grabbed for me, I introduced them to a skillset called Target Focus Training. Within 5 seconds, two of them were on the sidewalk screaming in pain, and the others were all running away. Don’t try to convince me of bullshit, when I live the reality.

      • Andre Bonds

        Your experience is all that matters is what you are saying. It doesn’t matter that 5 million crimes a year are committed by white people with WHITE VICTIMS right? Only your fragile emotions count. This explains why people who believe religions and politicians are so delusional…because you all can’t separate emotional personal experience from empirical evidence. I won’t say it is all your fault…but it is mostly.

        You want me to accept your experiences as true but you call me and MILLIONS of black people who experience racism every day…liars…because ONLY white people can have personal experiences. See the hypocrisy?

        Downtrodden blacks take in stray white people, give money to the white homeless that the white people look at like scum. Come to a predominately black city and see which communities the WHITE beggars come to. They come to the BLACK sides of town because white people treat even poor white people like scum…but black people actually give to the white people.

        You want black people to be racist so you can justify your racism. But, trust me, the bigotry in your heart has little to do with us or our actions. It has everything to do with the indoctrination you have been brainwashed with.

        Let me ask you this…if all blacks were like Colin Powell would you all of a sudden start loving us?

      • Troubleshooter

        As I said in a previous post Andre, spare me your bullshit, or ignorance, or delusion, or whatever it is that keeps oozing like pus from your rotting mind. You don’t know me, or anything about me. I will tell you this much, my ONLY prejudices are AGAINST Racism, Corruption, Ignorance, Stupidity, and Lies. I am the ONLY Dad, that a very talented, compassionate, well-adjusted, 26 year old artist and musician has ever known. His BLACK father abandoned him and his mother when he was 3 weeks old. I met him and became his Dad when he was 3 years old, and he tells me at least once per week that of all the things he is grateful for besides me leading him to Christ, is the fact that I chose to raise Him, and gave him an example that he hopes to emulate. His Biological Grandfather and Grandmother, who are both highly educated retired Software Engineers from Oakland CA, tell me that THEY are grateful that their grandson was raised by yours truly. In addition, from the time I was old enough to hunt game with my Dad, He and my brothers and I fed more than 15 black families who lived around us in our rural farm community. I don’t tell you this out of any self-aggrandisement, but just to give you a glimpse of how viciously prejudiced YOU are toward anyone who tells the truth about far too many blacks. Now, do yourself a favor, and don’t make yourself look like any more of an idiot than you already have.

      • Andre Bonds

        There is NOTHING Christian about ANY of the posts that that you have made to me. Because you raised a half black child and helped black families DOES NOT mean you believe black people are EQUAL! Racism is NOT simply hate or disgust of another race. It is the BELIEF that you are superior based on your skin color.

        The fact that you deny and ignore the fbi stats in favor of demonizing black people with skewed facts and spin proves you believe white people are better than black people as a whole. That sir, IS RACISM. And what’s worse is..it is the worst kind of racism because you believe because you are not the KKK type of racist that your bigotry based on emotion is inconsequential. But your type of racism is the kind that closet bigots use to not hire qualified blacks with college degrees for jobs. It is the kind of racism that says it is ok to stop 800,000 black and brown people in NY simply because of their race even though less that 2% them ever even receive a citation. Your type of racism advances lies like Blacks are lazy, stupid, and the reason for the downfall of this country. And last but certainly not least, your kind of racism falsely blames the race problem in America on blacks as if there hadn’t been 250 years of racism from whites towards blacks and that this legacy suddenly disappeared in the last few years when there are still over 30 white supremacist groups still operating in America, and many white people (not all) feel the way you do about “most” black people.

        You may not HATE ALL BLACK PEOPLE, but you certainly advance half-truths, lies, propaganda, and disparaging notions about us that perpetuates the systemic racism that has been in place for 250 years and is only SLOWLY starting to change.

        My truths about black people are FAR more true that yours because I am not trying to protect a political agenda or racial superiority. Yes we have crime problems in OUR communities…but that doesn’t affect YOU or most white people. Yes, we have poverty problems in our communities..but that doesn’t affect YOU or most white people. Yes, we need a better understanding about our roots and culture but that doesn’t affect YOU or most white people. Every reason that bigots use to try to justify their disdain for black people are EXCUSES that don’t affect the vast majority of white people. It is just inhumane , unchristian, immature nonsense used to make them feel better about the emotional and indoctrinated belief system.

        If you consider yourself a Christian, and you don’t want to help in the black community (which is your right), then we should be discussing the very real problems in the WHITE community rather than the animus that you have for the black community.

        You don’t understand that how you feel about us was a plan used to keep poor and middle class people fragmented so the Ultra rich could steal all American wealth for themselves while we fight over NONSENSE. That is exactly what has happened. While you dislike black people for things you really don’t care about…like black on black crime…the ultra rich are getting filthy rich while the poor and middle classes are getting poorer and poorer. You don’t seem to have a problem with that. That’s your right. But, please understand that Jesus does not approve of how you and other feel or what you do all in the name of RACE. So, don’t PRETEND you are bringing people to Christ who was strictly about LOVE, when you exhibit no love simply because of a cult-like ideology that you don’t really understand yourself.

It is not Whites fault that Blacks started listening to Idiots Like Sharpton and Jesse Jackson Whites are not he Racists here it is the Blacks that Always pull the race card when they think Whitey has not helped them enough or has not done enough to help the Black man in America Whites owe Blacks Nothing In America!!!!!! the Sooner the Black race Figures that out the faster they can stop living like Third world aborigines in a Civilized Country.

      • Andre Bonds

        There are over 30 white supremacist groups in the U.S. They are all conservative. Nobody is closed minded enough to believe that ALL Conservatives are racist. The closed mind is the conservatives who are not racist DENYING AND DEFENDING all of the conservatives who are racist just because you all agree on political ideologies.

        The rest of your comments are STRATEGIC political nonsense thought up in board rooms in order to manipulate a voting block into voting against their own best financial interest in favor of trying to spite blacks, Hispanics, gays, women, Muslims, or anyone that disagrees with the republican party. Words like “race card” were thought up so you indoctrinated parrots would have something to say to defend ridiculous LIES AND PROPAGANDA. And just like good cult members…you keep believing and voting against your own best interest and attack anyone who tries to remove you from the cult.

        Case in point:

        Like a I said Before the Black Race is Doomed in America if they do not stop With the Entitlement Attitude. It will only get worse and any Attempt to blame whites is nothing but Excuses which the Black race is very good at And Diversification Has Been a complete Failure. You Cannot take someone from a Ghetto Environment Transplant them into a Thriving White area and Expect the Success and Ambition to Magically rub off on the Ghetto Blacks all it does i make the whites Flee the area and more Blacks move in thinking they are showing Whitey how it gonna be and next thing you know you have once thriving Neighborhood turned into a Ghetto and then the Cycle starts all over again The race Issues in America have Nothing to do with Fairness and Equal Opportunity. Life is not fair and if the Blacks Cannot wake up and start fending for themselves and our Gov Stop Giving them a free ride no one need Food stamps if they would get off their ass and work get two jobs if you have too but…..not likely

      • Andre Bonds

        1965 the poverty rate for America as a whole was 14%. The poverty rate for blacks was 36%.

        2012 the poverty rate for America as a whole was 14%
        The poverty rate for blacks was 27%

        Blacks are the ONLY group in America making progress economically in the face of the destruction of the poor and middle class that conservatives continue to push.

        Give us another 40 years and we will be down to 14% poverty just like rest of America …even in the face of the type of bigotry that you display and believe to be justified.

        So keep being manipulated by conservatives who use your emotions against you to lie, cheat, and steal the wealth of this country while you are worried about petty BS like who is on welfare…smh.

        Not Per Capita Blacks have a Higher rate of Crime per Capita than any other race in America anytime you Have a Welfare System there are going to a number of all races Jumping the Bandwagon for a free ride….The majority if Young Blacks these days cannot even speak Proper English The Black race is a huge Failure in America Nothing you can say or Post here can Dispute the facts and Statistics…..Blacks will never equal whites in America Just the way it is

      • Andre Bonds

        How do we know if blacks will equal whites when Whites had a 200 YEAR HEAD START in equal protection under the law and blacks are only 40 years removed from Jim Crow. In addition, bigots like you who hire for jobs, make justice, loan, housing, and education decisions do whatever they can to hurt black people because we had the audacity to want to free and now have the unmitigated gull to want to be treated as equals in a society run by a Constitution that says “all men are created equal and endowed with certain inalienable rights”. In fact, conservatives fought against their own constitution to try to PREVENT blacks from receiving these “inalienable rights”.

        So you are entitled to your ridiculous opinion based on nothing but a legacy of propaganda offered by your cult, but let me give you a few facts that you will surely ignore because you WANT to dislike black people because it makes you feel better about yourself.

        90& of all crimes committed against white people are by white people. Yet you have no problem with white people. Every single decision in this country that effects economic policy, the destruction of the middle class,and the condition of our country is made by WHITE PEOPLE. The hijacking of our government by the Ultra rich has been done by WHITE PEOPLE. If you got rid of every minority you would still have 6 million crimes per year by..you guessed it…WHITE PEOPLE. So you can keep blaming black people for all of the problems in America if you want to remain delusional , but don’t pretend like you will get sane black people to agree with such nonsense because conservatives, Oligarchs and Plutocrats are 95% white and THEY are the ones ruining our country.

      • Frank Black

        As I said before, blacks are only 12% of the population, yet account for half of all the crime.

        As you “said” before doesn’t mean crap. Blacks account for only 27% of the crime in this nation. Getting your facts straight won’t change your mind though…because bigotry, hatred, and white supremacy are based on ignorance, low self-esteem and immaturity, NOT FACTS.

      • Frank Black

        They account for that much crime from a minority of 12%. That’s an awful lot of crime committed by the black minority, no mater how you try to justify it.

        Well I can say this, where I live a new high school was built and my daughter attended. The school had a black principal and vice principal, and the head of and half the guidance was black. This is what has happened. They allowed teacher to come from Orlando and bring their black students and this is what happened. I had to take my daughter out of school because they turned it into a ghetto, at least three times a year. the school gets locked down because of gang related gun threats, once a week dogs are brought through the school and you guessed it at least three or four black guys are arrested because they are dealing and they are stupid enough to have their back packs full! Any kids not black are getting beaten by their Knock out game, even a white teacher was KNocked out but it never made the news!!!! Why because the news wont show black on white hate crimes. No the true racists in this country are not the white people it is the blacks and it is getting even worse. You cant even stand in front of a black at the grocery store with out one getting mad at you because you wont let them cut you in line saying your racist for not letting them!!!

        The one with the small brain in denial is you. Blacks only think whites are racist and use it as an excuse to behave very badly. You know it and I know it the only ones who refuse to see it are Liberal Democraps and people with white guilt. I dont have any white guilt and never will, First off it was Blacks who sold blacks into slavery and records show is was the Muslims and the Jews who traded them the most and in fact there are this very day over 26 million blacks as slaves in Muslim countries. All I see every day in the news is how blacks target elderly people and women to beat the shit out of from just pure racial hate. Or if a black person acts like a thug and gets shot dead it turns into a racist circus

      • Andre Bonds

        Let me help you out a little bit. First, the dude just called me a N****** but black only THINK white people are racist based on nothing…smh. Ok.

        No black has EVER SAID…”i committed a crime against another black person because whites are racist”. That is absolutely BS. The part you don’t understand is 92% of all crime committed by black people are AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE…nobody blames that on racism. The 8% of crime in which black people assail whites, hispanics, asiains, or other groups MAY be blamed on racism…but we KNOW it is just ignorance. 90% of all crimes committed against white people are BY WHITE PEOPLE. The 10% of the crimes by white people against other races have racism used as excuses also. You are only focused on black on white crime because you have been manipulated by propaganda. We KNOW you don’t care at ALL about black people hurting black people…so the only thing you should REALLY be worried about is WHITE ON WHITE crime. But, even though there are 5.5 MILLION of those each year and less than 50K black on white crimes each year, the white on white crimes don’t get you very emotional do they?

        White guilt, Race Card, Entitlement programs, Welfare queens, Race Baiting and a host of other words like this were drummed up by right wing political strategists in board rooms so they could “arm” their followers with “buzz words” to throw around to help defend the party’s positions even if the words are nonsense.

        Nobody wants white people to feel guilty. We want you all to be HUMAN. That doesn’t mean we want handouts..we want level playing fields. We want to be judge by our INDIVIDUAL actions not your prejudices of an entire race based on the actions of a few. We want you all to stop being hypocrites by pretending there are no white racists , that all black people second class citizens and racist and that white people do nothing wrong ever so the entire focus of you all’s lives is to judge blacks, hispanics, gays, Muslims, and immigrants. Asking you all to show some humanity is NOT A LOT TO ASK.

      • tonymengela

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA everything you wrote was so full of shit I’m dying of laughter! I noticed you still wont touch the issue of the Islamic slave threat, and I know why and you touched on it with black on black crime but you lie about black on white crime and its simple. Blacks are not only 100% racist but they hate them selves almost as much as they hate everyone else. They welcome slavery on anyone as long as its someone else. The only thing I every see blacks united on is violence towards others and that only holds true until there is no one else to attack and then they implode onto themselves, Africa and ghettos are perfect examples of it! I cannot find ONE charity that blacks have gotten together on to help their own kind in any way other than voting a democrat in for more welfare! Yet You can do a search and find literally thousand of charities where white folks are trying to help out! Look even Your heros like Lewis Faracon wont lift a finger to help anyone, and evidence of his own racism to his own kind is the fact that he is a leader in Islam!!!!!!! How can you practice any religion that supports the enslavement of your own kind?!?!?!??!! Wake up you Moron

      • Andre Bonds

        I really do understand why white racists are racist like yourself. It is because you all have really low IQ’s and are easily manipulated by emotion and propaganda. It is like being in a cult. You really don’t care about what is true, logical, or factual, you only care how you FEEL. The anger and animosity you feel consume you so completely that you will use any lie, half truth, propaganda, or slander to hold on to your vitriol and hypocritical justification for blaming black people for all of your problems. Well that is EXACTLY how cult leaders recruit their members. You are a member of a cult that is serving to destroy you but you are so indoctrinated, brainwashed and blinded that you can’t see it. There is NOTHING I can say to remove you from the cult because you will protect it at all costs right up until the point well Jim Jones tells you to drink the Kool-aid to kill yourself.

        But, I can clear up a few things. 1) 90% of crimes committed against white people are committed BY WHITE PEOPLE. That is over 5 MILLION a year. 2) I don’t care about black on white crime because it is such a small amount of total crime that it is not worth concerning myself with. 3) The Nation of Islam IS DIFFERENT FROM REAL ISLAM. 4) I don’t care about Islam or the NOI. Farrakhan is a con man just like most Christian ministers…there is no difference to me.

        5) The most important…If a people hate themselves it is IMPOSSIBLE for them to be RACIST. I know you are not bright enough to understand that…but it is true. Racism is one race believing they are SUPERIOR TO OTHER RACES. If black people hate themselves THEY CANT BELIEVE they are superior to other races…smh. It is possible for black people who hate themselves to be HATEFUL AND BIGOTED…but that is different from being racist. Again, i know you won’t understand this…but it is true. To say 100% of black people are hateful and bigoted just proves how bigoted you are and are just looking for justification for your hate and belonging to the cult of the right wing.

      • tonymengela

        Low IQ lol (137) I am well educated and have traveled to many places, I see the reality of things as they truly are. Look I know exactly the level of thinking and mentality your race holds. I blame blacks for their own crimes they commit and by their actions which are evidence of their thinking. You will always be in denial, and it is now quite obvious you are of the Islamic faith, as you will not touch that subject but rather briefly touch and then run from it. What is it like being a member of an organized faith that enslaves your own kind? How do you sleep at night knowing your leaders of the faith around the world not only accepts your people’s enslavement but has them as slaves as well? You see by taking that faith you automatically are part of the problem. By the way I think you should go to the FBI crime and statistics and look for the real facts because your keyboard wont work if you keep putting bullshit all over it.

      • Andre Bonds

        There is the fbi crime stats smart guy. Notice how in every single category whites are almost twice as bad with the exception of murder and robbery. Murder we had 101 more (wow huge epidemic!)

        You are the one in the cult of bigotry and conservative evils. I have no religion. Faith is for the weak and uninformed who need “leaders” to think for them. EVERY SINGLE THING YOU SAID has been strategically devised in a board room by conservatives (some racist some not) to try to gain power because they KNOW you all will accept every evil lie, half truth or slanderous piece of propaganda without ever questioning it. They tell you what to think and feel and like good little cult members you think and feel it…even to your own financial detriment.

      • Frank Black

        Blacks only account for 12% of the entire population though, meaning they are vastly over represented in the amount of crime committed.

      • Andre Bonds

        I agree, but that is because we are also over-represented in the amount of POVERTY because of slavery then Jim Crow, and now covert racists like yourself who will ONLY hire a black person under penalty of law.

        As soon as the bigots like yourself die or change their minds and hearts (death will come first in most cases), the poverty in the black community will drop which will mean that crime in the black community will drop.

        But, you don’t REALLY care about the black community getting better…you just use stats as a dumb @ss justification for your white supremacy.

      • tonymengela

        Does not matter about the 30 small groups when you have one huge black panther group that is huge and is actively murdering people! You dont even have sand to stand on and even 1 person over 50% makes a majority and I put 90% in the category described above, yah its my number but its my personal experience talking. I lived in New Orleans and other cities and know how it is. Keep on with your denial its ok I understand how it is for you to feel all alone in your 10%

      • Andre Bonds

        Lol, the Black Panther Party has less than 20 thousand members. There are over 1 million KKK members. Please don’t tell me you are going to try to compare the numbers of racist white people in this country to racist black people. Your experience is NOT empirical evidence. It is an emotional tantrum. Even if you are not racist, your defending and denying them just because they agree with your political views makes you almost as bad as them.

        If i were to guess…and i am POSITIVE i know more black people than you…about the same percentage are racist as whites…about 30 percent. But even if we went with your RIDICULOUS number than 90 percent of us are racist..that would mean about 36 million racist blacks live in America. If there are 30 percent white people who are racist (i think it’s more, but I am taking the estimate from the expert) that would mean there are about 45 MILLION racist white people.

        Now, which group is in power and has the ability to discriminate in jobs, loans, justice, housing, and all other economics? That would be WHITE PEOPLE. This is not a debate you can win if we are being logical and factual, so we might as well change the subject.

      • tonymengela

        actually If you look at violent racist crime its all black and you know it, but we could argue over and over. I noticed you overlooked the Islamic threat to your own people

      • Andre Bonds

        Lol at Islamic threat. Islam is no bigger threat to “my people” or ALL people than Christianity or any other religion.

        Tony, the problem is…you shouldn’t be looking at crime as a race issue at all. It is an American issue. The focus on race is from the right. You all say that blacks focus too much on race as they are being treated by second class citizens. Do you also tell people who have been raped to not focus on it or to “get over it”? Race is a construct of rich WHITE conservatives to divide the poor and middle class as a divide and conquer measure so the infighting would prevent us from focusing on them stealing the country and destroying the middle class…PERIOD.

    so sad to see the way we treat each other, the way we as human beings treat each other. Maybe if we were all physically blind, we would gain some spiritual insight as to why we are so horrible to each other. I went to a community College in Flint Michigan. I had many friends that were Black, hispanic etc., it never seemed to be an issue. I now live in Fresno California, I have been robbed and Raped by Blacks and hispanics and they have been HORRIBLE to me, simply because I am white. I do not understand it??? I tried to be really nice to everyone like I was in Michigan, and they attacked me for no reason. I would never lift a finger to help out anyone ever again black, hispanic, or even white.
    This is what is happening to The USA. We are all being goaded into hating each other and the cultural wars are totally out of control. We are all AMERICANS. Every single 18 year old should do 2 years in the Military. It was drilled into our heads in the (navy) that we are all the same, of the same worth, and abilities, but we had to prove ourselves by working hard and working together. No BS allowed. The race baiters are going to cause a civil war and then shit will hit the fan. There has to be an answer, we must find a way to respect each other again. WElfare is not a lifestyle, neither is extreme wealth and loopholes in tax laws… we must all work together and grow the hell up!!!

      Diversity tears a country apart from within. When a country is diverse the people of all races are more likely to do things to benefit themselves instead of their country. Example, muslims are raping Europe even though they have been offered a chance at a better life, they are in it for “what they can get”therefore it causes problems, some people like the muslims and some think the problems that comes with them is not worth it so now there is division.

      First diversity hits home, your children show the first signs of damage from diversity. The schools are loaded with third worlders that don’t care for the native children or their family values as this rubs off on your children the home life begins to crumble. The muslims will put what they want first before they put the European country first now the people of that country lose their pride and respect for their leaders and are not as patriotic as they once were “why serve my country when they give it to others that don’t deserve it” at the same time the muslims have no love for the country because it’s not their mother land or their people, the country has now entered a downward slide, and the muslims could care less because after all they don’t care for the customs, cultures or the people.

      You will find this in any country,state or city that has more than one race, all races for the most part will seek out others like themselves(their own race and or religion)to associate with. Multiculturalism is a failure just look at all of the problems where this failed program has been pushed, England, France,Sweden and the list goes on. Diversity makes a weak fragmented society and a homogeneous society is and always will be stronger and safer for the people.

        Phillip, you don’t have to EARN RESPECT. You get it because you are white. White people killed, destroyed, and stole land from Natives..no problem.

White people created laws to continue to treat minorities like second class citizens and keep them poor and unequal…no problem. White people created groups whose sole existence was to hate, intimidate, scare, and kill blacks who just wanted to be treated like humans…no problem. And NOW …the reason White people hate black people and other minorities is all of a sudden THE FAULT OF THE BLACKS AND MINORITIES….lol. GTFOH.

    As an individual who once attended a heavily black Junior High School in New York in the 1980s, where they had a yearly “kill whitey day”, everything this guy said is the truth. the town that I grew up in, NAACP and liberals decided that it was raciss! and they got a red diaper doper baby liberal white judge to rule that it was and they ended up busing white kids into the hood. So i had to get up early to catch a bus instead of just going to a school that was closer to me, so that some black robe could feel good about himself. When that black robe kicks over, I will dance a jig. Fortunately, I did not get messed with by blacks. I had one black tell me that I had italian white mafia crazy eyes LOL–not kidding– and that’s why they didn’t mess with me. I didn’t understand it, but it worked so I just went with it. its still going on and any white person that I know send their kids to catholic or private school.

    Same ole, same ole wit a diffren color.

    Others will say, SSDD, the sarcasm loses the message and the disconnect continues. Public schools are largely to blame and rightfully so.

    The solution then is to use the early years to drive home the famous ‘Three Rs’ and cut them free after the 8th grade; sooner perhaps. Those with a genuine interest in doing something that may become valuable will stick around and enjoy smaller classrooms full of people with an interest.

    The rest will bumble through life and become amazed when one of their offspring takes an interest and/or does something grand.

    I believe most black students don’t care about learning or schools, because they go

It just doesn’t make sense to them….the only thing that has meaning is to get that green – dope or money – it is the only answer to anything. School is a total waste of time. Getting ahead in this (white) world means belonging to a gang, having protection, doing whatever it takes to live another day. The women have no problem with being fat or being pregnant…they firmly believe their men like fat and
    being pregnant might get them more welfare so they pop more black kids out who in turn, will continue the hopeless cycle all over again. There will always be a very
    strong difference and dislike between blacks and whites.

    Having been a product of this kind of environment, I was fortunate that God blessed me with the ability to recognize good advice & I made the effort to take that good advice. Others in my family and circle of influence during that time made other choices.

    The old cliche of “A bucket of crabs” is a mentality alive & well in the lower socioeconomic neighborhoods. Welfare & long term unemployment programs are not the answer. Choosing personal responsible & refusing to be a victim is what works!

      You are a perfect example of why people should not make decisions based on emotions and just their own personal experience. Does your FALSE belief that all black neighborhoods are like the ones you experience make you racist. Absolutely. That is the definition of racism…the belief that one is superior based on their race.

      Does that make you a bad person…not necessarily. But, it does make you emotionally and mentally immature. That doesn’t make you a bad person either…just misinformed.

      If you want the TRUTH. Google affluent black communities in the U.S. You will find that they are not hostile, ignorant, crime ridden, or bad communities. If you are objective and willing to not be controlled by your emotions…you will find that all the things you are afraid of or avoiding are do to POVERTY not RACE.

      Let me give you one fact that I am sure you don’t know. Of the 6 million crimes committed against white people last year…90% of them were committed BY WHITE PEOPLE. So, yes, i agree poor black people are more aggressive than poor white people, but on a daily basis you are 9 times more likely to be hurt by a white person than a black person. Those are the facts.

    I can’t find fault with this essay. The liberals forced desegregation on all of us for social justice back in the 70’s and all it did is bring us all down to the lowest common denominator and seeing that failure – they do what liberals do – double down on failure and are now forcing us to the next lowest common denominator – assimilating the third world from Mexico to Argentina into our public school / welfare systems.

    Wow!
    First I wonder if this was written by Kevin Jackson from the Blacksphere.
    Next I think of enslavement to resentment and entitlement that is racistly propagated by the likes of Sharpton, Jackson and winfrey. “Our people were used as slaves centuries ago and we are still resentful, you still OWE us.”
    Ya know, you don’t hear the Jewish people still resenting and lamenting and playing victims of the Holocaust. They are survivors who are happy and proud they survived. And went ON. We abolished slavery here. We passed as a country – Thanks to Republicans! Equal rights. Oprah how about we use your logic, “Kill all old white racists”. How about the old resentful, you enslaved me you owe me blacks go to a quiet place too. The only white massas you have are the dumbing down entitlement dolers from the gov’t now a days. If you want free of oppression, how about not choosing to be DEPENDANT on your “Oppressor”. Dr. Ben Carson’s mom didn’t buy this crap and refused to let her son think that way. She said straighten up and read and learn. He wasn’t allowed to behave that way in school.
    There are tons of middle class blacks who don’t behave the way inner city black kids do. This isn’t even a black thing really. It’s an inner city thing. Whites get stuck in trailer park trash mentality too. This is more of a class issue. You either figure out a way to succeed in this world, Or you just plain Don’t get to succeed. Why the hell should those who won’t bother to try, get the perks that folks who do – DO? This article is all about not being willing to do what it takes to succeed.
    Whine all you want about cultural differences and non conformity whatever. Ya gotta know how to play the game to succeed. If all the game they can come up with is drug pedaling, prostitution, stealing, gang banging, making more child welfare recipients – they are NOT Succeeding! It basically sounds like perpetual kindergarten. You all get a gold star to make it all copasetic at nap time and no one whines and cries.

    Lets draw a sewer maze. Fill it with rats who can’t find their way out of a paper bag with holes in it. They can’t even gnaw their way out of it. That’s how conditioned they are to not thinking outside the box for themselves. Then leave them to breed. Then drop food and drugs and free health care. What are they going to do? Breed. And breed and breed and breed. And compete – fighting and killing and rogue gangs etc. Trying to somehow be top dog of the ignorance gene pool. (There is the free market competition trying to work, isn’t it? Survival of the fittest.) And then keep feeding them and dropping hand outs as the benefactors for those who can’t help themselves, to keep it fair and just, and no one goes without. Just like Detroit and other inner cities keep doing.
    For every inner city Detroit black resident, there are three outskirts of Detroit area blacks who are successful middle class. It’s time to stop making excuses and let the survival of the fittest work it’s magic. If those kids can fight to keep their shoes clean, and fight to get the best boy, They can fight to keep a home and job. They know how to compete. Let them step up and survive.
    Add to the rat maze just for kicks – a room with free brekas and lunch, and a room of learning – pppfffttt guess where most would go? Put a door in the room with the learning out to the real world- give that group the opportunity for a way out.
    Then you add the gun element. I honestly don’t know how that works in there – inner city. Do the stupid’s and the not so stupid’s have them? Is that the great equalizer? Liberals want to do away with all the guns. Dr. Carson is not in favor of them in inner cities and I understand his logic. They aren’t used for their intended purpose there. Education obviously won’t work because it is the wrong wilderness those people live in, to use them. Hunting humans for sport is wrong. (War is different). Killing your competitor will not make you better or stronger though. Maybe that is the lesson. He/She might be better or smarter than me – BANG I’ll dumb down the gene pool again. I’m a wiener now, I killed the smarter one. Attrition. Where’s that get ya???
    What would be the fall out if you asked those kids – What would happen to YOU if welfare and all the other perks disappeared?

    Bottom line..they are an un-evolved species that should’ve been extinct several thousand years ago, if not for the compassion of the evolved white race. they are society’s anchors and our tolerance has held back our own advancement. it is like when the Cro-magnon encountered the less evolved and ‘lower branch’ of the human evolution tree Neanderthal. even then, the Cro-magnons knew they had to eradicate that species to further their advancement. to keep them around would’ve put the human race in jeopardy…same as now. don’t give me the crap about DNA and genes. blacks obviously have a lesser ability to learn, filter thoughts and actions, socialize and create.

    Though I agree with many things written, this teacher does have many prejudices…ie..Fat People! I grew up in Kansas City, Mo, and lived through the race riots of the 60’s. The Black Panthers would drive down the street with megaphones yelling out, “Have yoselves mo babies and take da white man’s money! We built beautiful new schools in the poorest of black neighborhoods, and they immediately destroyed them. This is a culture that has been here since slaves were freed and the 1st generation of free black children was born. So much of it has to do with mob mentality, and women who have babies with everyone having a different daddy, and daddies that take no responsibility for spreading their seed to create a majority in numbers….mob kids! I now live in a suburb of KC, and have many great black neighbors who have left the big cities to teach their children a better way, and to keep them safe. I respect their love of their children, and their dedication to teaching them responsibility is how to succeed, not blame. But some of the good black’s children bring the city with them, and bring crime we never had before. Somehow we must teach responsibility, and consequence for action. I will continue to welcome people of all colors who demonstrate these abilities. I will respect those who deserve respect. But when I go to the city, I am very alert to my surroundings, I lock my doors, and don’t travel in certain neighborhoods with valid reason. So many cry out about the poor innocent children, but if we don’t create systems where the care of children falls upon the parent, things will never change for the better…loving them is not enough, and feeding them only creates users. We have to stop rewarding women based on the number of children they have.

    Having grown up in an extremely racist small town in the South which was intergrated during the Civil Rights era, with all of the accompanying issues and problems, I can categorically state that this screed is wrong on every level. Perhaps where this educator is located is the issue, but not the skin color of his students. For example, even after having grown up in ***ger Town (capitalized on county and school maps), a close friend of my oldest brother won the key scholarship to FSU over him, not because of race, but because he had a little better score on his SATs. Douglas (forgot his last name) and John (my brother) remained friends for years afterwards, attending college together and again competing over highest school honors. One would win one, the other another one, throughout their education. That’s just one example of a black child overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds to go on to success.

    However, the culture of TODAY’s black children and adults in SOME AREAS of the nation are as the author describes it well. Malcolm X has won over Martin Luther King, Jr. in those areas. Our job should not be to abandon them to the Xers, but to attempt to remind them of MLK’s dream and how they can help us all to achieve it.

    White People are starting to wake up! The media has hidden black crime for 50 years but enough people have been harmed that people are taking note- finally.

    The lack of black progress has NOTHING to do with white racism any more. Slavery has been gone for almost as long as it was EVER around in the U.S. Blacks have EVERY advantage the government can buy- but reliance on bigdaddygovernment keeps you in the projects.

    IQ has been well vetted but the knee-grow apathy is legendary. As the teacher points out they just have no academic interest in how the world works. They have never noticed where the sun sets. They don’t care about U.S. history or world history. They have no interest in science, or mathematics, or business, or literature, or really anything productive or beautiful. I am reminded of Thomas Jefferson:

    [1] The first difference [between whites and blacks] which strikes us is that of color. . . . The difference is fixed in nature, and is as real as if its seat and cause were better known to us. And is this difference of no importance? Is it not the foundation of a greater or less share of beauty in the two races? Are not the fine mixtures of red and white, the expressions of every passion by greater or less suffusions of color in the one, preferable to that eternal monotony, which reigns in the countenances, that immoveable veil of black which covers all the emotions of the other race? Add to these, flowing hair, a more elegant symmetry of form, their own judgment in favor of the whites, declared by their preference of them, as uniformly as is the preference of the orangutan for the black women over those of his own species. The circumstance of superior beauty, is thought worthy attention in the propagation of our horses, dogs, and other domestic animals; why not in that of man? . . .
    [2] They seem to require less sleep. A black, after hard labor through the day, will be induced by the slightest amusements to sit up till midnight, or later, though knowing he must be out with the first dawn of the morning. They are at least as brave, and more adventuresome. But this may perhaps proceed from a want of forethought, which prevents their seeing a danger till it be present. When present, they do not go through it with more coolness or steadiness than the whites. They are more ardent after their female: but love seems with them to be more an eager desire, than a tender delicate mixture of sentiment and sensation. Their griefs are transient. Those numberless afflictions, which render it doubtful whether heaven has given life to us in mercy or in wrath, are less felt, and sooner forgotten with them. In general, their existence appears to participate more of sensation than reflection. . . .
    [3] Comparing them by their faculties of memory, reason, and imagination, it appears to me, that in memory they are equal to the whites; in reason much inferior, as I think one [black] could scarcely be found capable of tracing and comprehending the investigations of Euclid; and that in imagination they are dull, tasteless, and anomalous. It would be unfair to follow them to Africa for this investigation. We will consider them here, on the same stage with the whites, and where
    2
    the facts are not apocryphal on which a judgment is to be formed. It will be right to make great allowances for the difference of condition, of education, of conversation, of the sphere in which they move. Many millions of them have been brought to, and born in America. Most of them indeed have been confined to tillage, to their own homes, and their own society: yet many have been so situated, that they might have availed themselves of the conversation of their masters; many have been brought up to the handicraft arts, and from that circumstance have always been associated with the whites. Some have been liberally educated, and all have lived in countries where the arts and sciences are cultivated to a considerable degree, and have had before their eyes samples of the best works from abroad. The Indians, with no advantages of this kind, will often carve figures on their pipes not destitute of design and merit. They will crayon out an animal, a plant, or a country, so as to prove the existence of a germ in their minds which only wants cultivation. They astonish you with strokes of the most sublime oratory; such as prove their reason and sentiment strong, their imagination glowing and elevated. But never yet could I find that a black had uttered a thought above the level of plain narration; never see even an elementary trait of painting or sculpture. In music they are more generally gifted than the whites with accurate ears for tune and time . . . . Whether they will be equal to the composition of a more extensive run of melody, or of complicated harmony, is yet to be proved. Misery is often the parent of the most affecting touches in poetry. —Among the blacks is misery enough, God knows, but no poetry. *** [4] To our reproach it must be said, that though for a century and a half we have had under our eyes the races of black and of red men, they have never yet been viewed by us as subjects of natural history. I advance it therefore as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in the endowments both of body and mind. It is not against experience to suppose, that different species of the same genus, or varieties of the same species, may possess different qualifications.

    Do you want to know the answer to this madness? Are you ready for it? Godlessness. These kids are a product of their upbringing and I don’t mean the school system although the school system is as much a part of it. I will explain. We are all born in sin with a sin nature. Many of these children are influenced by their parents and brought up with a certain outlook on life. These children weren’t born racist. They were introduced to it by someone at an early age, parents, relatives? Having learned it at an early age and grown to accept it or molded by it they then enter a secular school system that has completely removed God from its classroom. Our school system has attempted to put itself above God by removing God from its classrooms and then attempting to fix a problem that ONLY God can fix! Unless the Word of God is preached sin will abound and darkness will continue to exist. The devil roams the earth to and fro seeking whom he may devour. He attacks our weaknesses and less we are saved by the blood of Christ Jesus and our hearts are guarded by the Lamb we will not stand against the evil one. Churches all over the world are filled with blood washed Christians of every race imaginable who are filled with goodness of heart and the spirit of God. It is not a race thing, it is a saved thing! You either serve God or you serve the devil. You’re either saved or you are lost. When you die you either go to Heaven or you go to hell.

    Racial hatred is at its greatest I have seen since the 60s. But now it is the other way around and more dangerous, because the media is not posting blacks’ (or illegals’) dastardly deeds as they did the KKK.

    An example is a black with all the attitudes listed in the commentary who shot a year old white baby point blank in the face this March in Brunswick GA. There has been no sustained media exposure of or outrage about the Santiago murder by Elkins (17). The other gang wannabe, 13, testified that Elkins said that school day, “I’m going to rob me a hispanic (which he had done before by shooting a hispanic pastor). Then upon seeing the white mother and baby said, “there’s a white lady.” When she had no money on her, Elkins insisted she did so he shot the mother and then shot the baby. The mother at first did not think Elkins was serious about shooting her baby, but perhaps if she had read this article she would have known that there is no control mechanism in people raised and galvanized like those described.

      Merry, why don’t you care about the 3500 or so murders that white people committed against white people? Why are you more concerned and afraid of the 400 or so that black people committed against white people? According to the Dept of Justice, over 68% of all crime in this country is committed by white people. Now, although there is too much in the black communities, the vast majority are committed by black people against black people (over 90%). And, we know you don’t care about that. So, the question again is, why so much concern over the few crimes that blacks commit against whites? Why not be afraid of the 194,000 aggravated assaults and over 14,000 rapes of white people BY WHITE PEOPLE last year alone?

You don’t hate white men even though they rape white women at 12 times the rate as black men raping white women. Over 170 THOUSAND white men raped white women but you all don’t complain about that at all. If black men committed the atrocities at Aurora or Sandy Hook, you all would be trying to send us all back to Africa. The double standards and hypocrisy comes from you all, sir…not us. You want a prime example? How about the politically and emotionally charged phrase “Race card”. Conservatives strategists created that phrase to marginalize and discredit anyone who tries to call attention to the very real instances of racism in this country. But it is hypocritical because you don’t use gay card, gender card, religion card, weight card, handicapped card, rape card, mental health card, or reverse race card when people call attention to the injustices that happen to these groups. Why not? BECAUSE you can’t prejudge them because (with the exception of Muslims) many of them are WHITE. Without the skin color as an identifying factor, you have to judge people by their ACTIONS. All we ask is that you do us the same way.

        Then consider how Senator Obama told a largely black audience in New Orleans after Katrina that they weren’t getting a waiver of the Stafford act like NY and FL because they were black. That was a lie and Senator Obama knew it was a lie because the waiver had passed two weeks earlier. What made this lie even worse is that he had voted against the waiver.

        The financial collapse in 2008 was largely the responsibility of Democrats who forced the banks to make loans to people who had no possibility of paying the loans back. They claimed that everyone had the right to own a home and that the banks were discriminating against the poor and minorities by turning them down for loans at a hire rate than whites. Well the Democrats got what they wanted, banks stopped checking peoples income before making loans and that is the root cause of the financial collapse.

He is governing like a Republican. But listen to your hypocrisy. Congress was the reason Bush MADE NO MISTAKES….but Congress has NOTHING TO DO with the mistakes Obama has made.

        You people….brainwashed democrats and republicans…are killing our country faster than any politician ever could.

    If black families would take more responsibility for raising their off-spring, the black race would not be in the miserable condition it is in. They perceive themselves as VICTIMS of the system and pass these attitudes on to their children.

        It can’t be 76% because 40% of all black men are criminals. In prison, jail or on probation. Not only that but 95% of blacks support Tyrant Obama no matter how disastrous his policies are, how they suffer under his rule and how many times he lies to them.

    please consider teaching in a more structured and diverse school. All you are portraying right now are stereotypes that are not consistent among all blacks, especially those who grew up in suburban areas with parents as doctors, lawyers etc. I am not denying the fact that some of the allegations are true, but I think you need to expand your research farther than the south. For one I grew up in Howard county, one of the richest counties, with black friends whose parents were both doctors, living in over 500,000 dollar homes etc and I and my friends, blacks, attended universities such as Georgetown, George Washington, Howard University and the likes. There is ALSO a difference between African blacks and american blacks ie educational zeal, life styles, attitudes etc. Thank you

    This is truly sad to hear but rings true as I know a young teacher who teaches in a tough part of town, she loves to try to help the community yet has learned after meeting parents of students who have the tear tattoo on their face signifying they have taken a life or prostitutes on drugs, that it is what occurs at home that lead these children to grow up without all of the opportunities their ancestors fought so honorably for. I myself have walked down the street and a random black man who was not young, spit at me. These extreme examples of hatred and ignorance are who are rearing these children who are angry but without any understanding of how they are privileged to get this opportunity to make a life for themselves. Free schooling, free food… all they need to do is apply themselves with an open mind.

    I feel sorry for this teacher, I honestly do, but this article is out of
    line. This teacher had an opportunity to teach, and failed. The author
    clearly gave up on the students and justified it by the actions of
    teenagers and then saw it fit to generalize his one teaching experience
    to whole southeast region of the country. For the record, I’m a black
    female, I like all types of music, I am highly educated, and I was a 4.0 student all through out school. I’m not saying that black people don’t have issues, and I have no problem speaking about them (www.blackwakeupcall.com), but if I felt like a teacher, especially a white teacher, didn’t want to teach me, I
    didn’t have an urge to learn. If a teacher isn’t giving 100% and
    teaching, why should I, as a child, give 100% in the class room? I do
    understand the issues, but he has to understand the struggle. On a
    related side note, this is why there are so many black boys on
    medications that they don’t need, this is why there are so many more of
    “us” in special education. If a white man doesn’t understand your child,
    he then has the power to place labels on your child, which could alter
    his/her life forever. Please note that for every child placed in special
    ed the school receives more money… Please keep that in mind before
    you allow your child to be placed on medications or removed from the
    general needs classroom.

    I could write a book, and may yet get around to a book about my experiences in a ‘multiculti’ NWO ‘experiment,’ and the racist harassment and violence I experienced right from the start, from finding the ‘we don’ want yo he’ misspelled note in pencil, and the slammed doors, and the threats, slander, subversive calls to workplaces, etc., leading to attempted murders, and the murders of two friends (one was the son of a friend.) And so on. With blessed exceptions, Blacks of the world are united in their hatred of white people, and covetous of all we have achieved. We ignore this at our peril.

    The exceptions cannot speak up and out, unless they have standing like West and Carter, because they, in turn, become targets.

        Yes, but cultures are derived from racial beliefs, values and traditions passed onto their children. The Black “value system” passed from adult to child is one of a lack of compassion for others; a general “me first” attitude. Civilized societies are not cultivated from these seeds of thought. Conversely, this is exactly the mentality and subsequent behavior that destroys societies.

      Culture and family support are far more powerful factors in education decisions made by youth than poverty or race will ever be.

        This is a myth perpetuated on those who will not look beyond the political agenda of the conservatives which is the complete obliteration of the poor. There is no ambition or dignity stolen from those who are on welfare. Over 80% of ALL welfare recipients are off assistance in 5 years or less. In addition, the vast majority of them HAVE JOBS. So, a help up is not the same as a hand out. This is propaganda perpetuated by those at the top who are clear that the divide and conquer strategy has been and always will be an effective way to keep the rich rich and the poor poor. This has ALWAYS been the haves vs. the have nots. It is just that poor and middle class conservatives CAN’T SEE WHICH GAME IS REALLY BEING PLAYED. The belief that this is about moving the country forward and helping the poor by taking away welfare altogether is complete nonsense. This is political and emotional manipulation of the unsuspecting in order for the rich and powerful to become MORE rich and powerful. All they have to do is get poor and middle class Americans to vote against their own best financial interests in the name of a political ideology. Hmmm….isn’t that what conservatives do?

        So your strategy here is to simply lie about the facts and hope people don’t check up on you? You’re not only a class-warfare propagandist, you’re an economics ignoramus.

The difference is that you’re either a race-baiting opportunist or an embarrassingly and irresponsibly ignorant loudmouth.

        Man, the hysterical twit comment was hilarious! It did really make me laugh out-loud.

        Anyway, let’s tackle your claim that I gave no facts.

        1) 80 percent of all welfare recipients are off in 5 years or less.

        “The majority of families who leave the welfare system do so after a relatively short period of time — about half leave within a year; 70 percent within two years and almost 90 percent within five years” — Urban Institute

        Hmmm..almost 90 is over 80 right??

        The others are logic. Please show me a capitalistic society in the history of the world where there was not a battle between the haves and the have nots.

        I am sure I do make more money than you but only because you made reference to it. However, It is because I own a couple of businesses..not because I pander to a crowd of emotional black people. With that being said. If I make more than you, then you are middle class…PLEASE PLEASE tell me how it would benefit you financially to have had Romney voted in to office.

      • ConradCA

        It would have benefited everyone if Romney was elected president. He would have turned the economy around so instead of welfare and unemployment checks people would have good paying jobs. Furthermore, they would have a president who didn’t lie or try to trap them into dependency on government.

      • ConradCA

        You must be communist to think that the rich want to keep the poor poor. The rich make lots more money when the country does well and the poor become educated and hold jobs. That way they can achieve a higher standard of living, become good employees and buy stuff.

      • Andre Bonds

        You are actually mistaken…rich people make MORE money in recoveries from recessions or depressions.

    You say “I find it interesting that NO ONE has had the intellect to refute anything in the essay.”

    Well sit down brother, you arrogant SOB because I’m going to refute your whole damn diatribe.

    Take it from this little old anthropologist. I taught at an historically black college, in the rural south. I worked with black churches doing research projects and I worked the black youth.

    I question the qualifications of this teacher. This article is revealing as much about you as it is about the students. This article has so many red flags for me I feel like a bull in a china shop and all I want to do is break a lot of dishes.

    Problem #1: “Most whites simply do not know what Black people are like in large numbers, and the first encounter can be a shock”

    So Black people no matter their age, gender, location, rural or urban, middle class, rural sharecroppers, chicago union workers, all behave the same. Not to mention college professors. I’ve been in marches with Black people and they behaved better than many of the white people.

    Lesson #1: To my white brother, if you are white, when you talk about all Black people that is blatant unadulterated racism. And, I don’t care whether you are black or white. My name is Jackson and I’m white.

    So that’s worth a whole stack of dinner plates.

    Problem #2: ‘The mainstream press gives a hint of what conditions are like in black schools.” What the conservative media says it what you report, lack of discipline, poor learning environment. What the liberal media write is poorly funded, inadequatly paid teachers not unlike yourself. Melissa Harris Perry just last evening spoke of the dangers of living in all Black communities.

    All Black people are not all the same, all Black students or schools are not all the same and thank God all teachers are not all the same because if they were like you Black kid in this country would never learn.

    Solution #3: For you I don’t see a solution other than a brain and a year long exposure to cross cultural communication education.

    Maybe this one is worth a few cups and saucers.

    Problem #4: You say, “One of the most immediately striking things about my students was that they were loud. They had little conception of ordinary decorum. ”

    OMG What the hell is ordinary decorum. Have you ever seen the Bill Mayr show? Or the View. Or Bill O’Reilly. They are just rude. There is no standard of ‘ordinary decorum’

    You say, : “It was not unusual for five blacks to be screaming at me at once.”

    You should be glad that five Black boys care enough to scream at you. If they didn’t think you worth talking to you they wouldn’t. They’d talk to each other and ignore you. This is the whole redeeming thing in the whole article. Just maybe they thought you had some redeeming qualities because they actually interacted with you.

    When I went to teach in Edmonton Alberta, myself and another professor from California were told, “we took up too much space” meaning personal space by the Anglophones. Now the Francophones and I got along famously. Interpersonal behavior differs from culture to culture. Hell it differs from North Carolina to Peoria, Illinois.

    When I taught elementary school in Southern California the little Portuguese kids all talked at once. The jumped on me hugged me all had to tell me their stories.

    You say, “Instead of calming down and waiting for a lull in the din to make their point — something that occurs to even the dimmest white students — blacks just tried to yell over each other.”

    I’d take animated exuberant Black kids any day over white kids who have had the exuberance bled out of them.

    When white kids act like the Black kids you are describing we put them on Adderal and diagnosis them with ADHD throw them in special ed and stigmatize them for the rest of their lives. Then we give them special help to get through college. I do not deny the white kids help however school isn’t good for them either. Why do you think so many white kids are home schooled?

    Solution #4 Get another job or, work to get the Right Wing leadership in the State
    to recognize that without government assistance there will never be
    decent schools for the Youth.

    By now I wouldn’t have any plates left in the cabinet.

    Problem # 5 The next few paragraphs are attacks on the rap culture. One of the only original creative art forms in the US.

    Solution # 5 You know if you hate everything about Black Youth and Black Culture, then you don’t belong teaching in a Black School. If you can’t meet the kids where they at you’ll never move them to where you want them to be.

    Problem #6 And attacking the difference in acceptable body type of Black Women and attitudes towards their bodies. News Flash the Black people who were brought here as slaves did not come from Europe where Victorian and Puritan morality totally screwed up White peoples attitudes toward sex and bodies.

    Solution #6 Get over it. Black women, white women Brown Women Gray Women and,, Yellow women all have different body types. You sound pretty misogynist to me.

    Problem # 7
    So now that you have established the education is not meeting the needs of Black Youth and that Black Youth who are without hope, that Black youth who are living in a part of the country where a significant number of their neighbors would like to see them dead, do not blame liberals. It is not liberals who are voting down funds for education. It is not liberals who voted down the stimulus package that would have benefited the poor in the poorest realm of the kingdom. Education in this country is a joke. It is a travesty and a disaster.

    Solution #5 Instead of blaming the victims, instead of stereotyping all Black people, instead of admonishing Black people to take their kids out of All Black Schools. Don’t you think it would make sense to create learning environments that start where the student is at and move them to a place where they like so many of their successful counterparts are bicultural. It helps to like where they are starting and to actually like the kids.

    There are many wonderful teachers who have inspired Black youth to do great things against surmountable odds.

    After all of this, I am soooo grateful for a bit of humor. I must say I howled in laughter picturing you trying to teach a bunch of Black students about British Philosophers.

    Did it ever occur to you to talk about W.B. DeBois Franz Fanon or any of the Black Intellectuals. It just shows how completely out of touch this educational system is with the lives of contemporary youth or any youth for that matter.

    Trust me, I’m old and I’m white and if you tried to teach me about a bunch of dead old white men, I’d be dancing and gyrating too.

    Education in the US public school system is a travesty. I have friends with PhDs. who dropped out of southern schools because they were so bigoted and these are White friends. Evolution was illegal to be taught in Arkansas until 1968. Books in biology were glued shut when they talked about evolution or sex. Some teachers cheered when MLK was assassinated. Students whose parents were clvil rights workers were called Nigger lovers. Schools didn’t fly the flag at half mast. Kids said good riddance he was a troublemaker, started riots. Which of course he did not.

    Who ever you are, I when am beginning to wonder if you have ever been a teacher in a Black School in the Rural South at all.

    Well there you have it. Someone who finally took the time to refute your diatribe blaming Black youth for their lack of education, motivation, and resources.

      I wish that I could imagine that the author of this article completely lied about being a teacher. However, as a white teacher in a predominantly black school, I can read through a lot of the disgusting language in this piece of writing and see that he is actually drawing these conclusions from real experiences in the classroom. I have encountered the cultural gap myself.

      What I also see is that this is a man who has absolutely no interest in allowing himself to grow and learn as an authority figure. He has stopped trying to understand his students, and they can sense that. I’ll bet they are (or were) rude, loud, and disrespectful towards him… because he deserved it.

      Someone who is more interested in whining on the internet than facing the problems he gets PAID to solve (e.g. Why don’t my students know what the Constitution is?), has no right to be in the classroom. I sense in this article a disgusting lack of professionalism, educational knowledge, passion, and perception.

      Last but not least, I would like to point out that the struggle this man went through as a teacher is not a one way street. For every time this selfish person throws up his hands (his words!), one or more of his students do the same. And without a paycheck to motivate them, students lacking a caring teacher may just throw their hands up for good… and that tragedy will be on the hands of those of us who decided that we were too good to put in a fraction of the effort we expect from our minority students.

      Thank you, Eileen, for your post.

        Teachers are suppose to teach. They present facts and try to help students understand and appreciate the world around them. That is what he did.

        It is impossible to teach when the students don’t want to learn. Just consider all of the examples the author gave were the black children refuse to learn and in fact embrace the destructive culture of Ghetto Gangsterism and welfare dependence. It is impossible for any teacher to overcome that culture.

        There is a fundamental truth in this article. It explains why 50 years after the end of Jim Crow laws and 150 years after the end of slavery a huge number of blacks are still trapped in poverty and criminality. The problem isn’t in society, discrimination or government. It is in them. Those who belong to the ghetto gangster culture are doomed to poverty, criminality and failure.

      Altruism is a uniquely white characteristic. No other race possesses this Christian-like concept (but ultimately self-defeating) racial characteristic.
      Despite TRILLIONS of dollars pumped into black “anti-poverty programs”, new schools (in which these black bastards STILL refuse to learn, and regard education as “acting white”) and excuses for their criminal, feral behavior, they STILL will not assimilate.
      It is curious to note that Africans who come to America want NOTHING to do with American blacks, preferring the company of whites and Asians.
      It is no secret that the African tribal chieftains who sold their own people into captivity were smarter than once thought. They did not sell their “best and brightest”, but sold their low IQ “slackers” and “conquests of war” into bondage–people they wanted to get rid of.
      Let’s not forget the black slave owners (yes, there were many, who treated their charges much worse than white slave owners). In fact, the real-life “Cinque” (portrayed in the movie “Amistad” which was based on real-life events) turned out to be one of the most prolific slave traders himself, traveling to Africa on many voyages, in order to procure “human capital” (slaves). . .
      That being said, “we should have picked our own cotton” . . .
      Africans have dominated their countries for thousands of years yet they never created a civilized culture. Europeans went in and modernized their world for them and the blacks destroyed it. Now they’re murdering whites 200 times more often than any other European country. So many of them are beasts and savages who live to steal what others have worked and created.

    The problem dates back to the slave trade. The traders got mostly the dumb blacks in Africa, thus the cesspool of genes created in America as the smart ones were able to evade capture. The genepool of the American black is one of complete dummies / lazy and retarded.

      Based upon what I see in modern Africa your assertion is false. America has many great Black Americans. Thomas Sowell and Walt Williams come quickly to mind but we have many many untold black American heros everywhere. The problem is this “modern black culture” that Liberalism has given a pass to.

    I am shocked that the author of this post is a history teacher.
    Some of this shock recedes when I remind myself that he is a Southerner,
    but perhaps that is a form of prejudice on my part. Regardless, for my own credibility’s sake I will claim that my (perhaps unwarranted) judgment stems from a collection of negative personal experiences when it comes to the intelligence levels of proud Southerners…

    I always avoid “commenting” on articles or blogs I read (in fact, this may be my
    first time), but I have recently seen this particular article shared, critiqued, and reposted in so many places online, and I’ve become increasingly surprised at how much positive reception it’s getting… It seems a little strange writing this to nobody in particular, but I feel the need to respond all the same.

    I guess it’s expected and relevant that I include my demographics: I am a middle class white female living in the south suburbs of Chicago. My parents sacrificed a huge portion of their income to send my brother and I to private grade school and high school because of the poor reputations our public schools had. All of my
    teachers, and almost all of my classmates, were white.

    I recently graduated college with a degree in social studies education. To complete my degree, my last 4 months as a student were spent student teaching at a predominantly black south suburban high school. Much like the author of this post, I had very few white students in my classes (roughly 8%) and even fewer Hispanic students (roughly 2%). Many, possibly most, of my students were “low income,” and received free lunch and breakfast.

    Many of the characteristics the author observes and despises in his black students and his “black school” sounded vaguely- but not completely- familiar to me. After reading the article a second time, trying to make up my mind about what exactly the PURPOSE this article was, I realized I only recognized some of the author’s observations because he had failed to complete them.

    Here, he has failed to do a historian’s job and look beyond the surface of the problems he encounters. For example: rather than realize that he has failed to teach his students enough about the Constitution, he admits to laughing alongside them in their ignorance. Rather than strive to earn the respect of the impressionable
    children in his charge, who have a twisted and self-deprecating view of White America vs. Black America, he allows them to (seemingly constantly!) insult both him and themselves.

    As a young, inexperienced (student) teacher, my first few days in the classroom- especially as my cooperating teacher started leaving me alone in the room with my students as the primary authority figure- were hell. I struggled to communicate with my students. Most were loud, blunt, seemingly uninterested and initially disrespectful. Those who were not resented my inability to accomplish anything besides plead for the students’ attention and, occasionally, press the security call button to avoid bursting into tears.

    As I slowly, and reluctantly, began to throw out my ideas about how a classroom was run, and how people were supposed to interact with one another, my students (and I) began to learn.

    I am trying really hard not to be cheesy, here… To be clear, there was no fluffy “Freedom Writers” shit going on in that classroom. I worked my ass off and made VERY little progress with my students in terms of their reading comprehension and formal writing styles. On my last day, I received some beautiful, heartfelt notes containing the likes of “I gonna miss u” and “dont be fallin for them kids at other schools u be going too.”

    But, there is something that I appreciated in my poor, black students that stem from the same things that this author whines about in this article. I can see that several other commenters have touched on this idea as well. Perhaps these students have learned to be loud because nobody ever listens to them.

    Maybe they are correct in thinking that textbooks, tests, and tardy bells have been tailored to communicate ideas effectively to those who are accustomed to formal language and structured schedules. Obviously many aspects of our educational system need to be examined and changed, but it really just seems to me as if this “teacher” made no effort to reach his students. Instead, he decided to resort to a
    racist rant in which he makes himself the victim.

    Next year, I have decided to work in a school district that serves a poor, black community. It isn’t because I think I can be a hero by correcting speech patterns while simultaneously proving that I’M NOT A RACIST by trying to ignore my whiteness and my students’ blackness… I hope the sarcasm is evident here, because I am fully aware that kids in every neighborhood have fucked up lives, and they are all in need of caring teachers. No teaching position is nobler than another.

    It’s for totally selfish reasons. I really enjoyed teaching my black students, and spending time with them between classes and after school (something this author claims “blacks” don’t like to do). I loved the daily words and phrases my students would teach me (“ratchet,” “turn up,” “buggin”…), and the roaring laughter they rewarded me with whenever I tried to incorporate them into my speech. Black students in America may, in general, be much more cultured than the average white student. I did not have a black teacher until my junior year of college (she was from Ghana, not the U.S.) However, virtually no minority students in American can graduate 8th grade without putting up with a white teacher.

    I believe that black students need white teachers, Hispanic teachers, and Asian teachers. I believe they also need black teachers. I think, ideally, white students would have access to a wealth of diversity in their educators as well.

    Anyway, I think I might be rambling. Perhaps someone will read this, and perhaps no one will. Either way, I have put a little piece of my philosophy in writing, if even just for my own eyes, and I would just like to end on this note: I think these students- the ones he describes as collectively defensive and accusing- are on to something. Teenagers are not idiots, and they can sense when their teachers do not want to be around them, and have no faith in their intellectual abilities. If this article is an accurate portrayal of the author’s capacity for understanding, historical or otherwise, I have a hard time believing he actually did find a more desirable teaching position. However, I am extremely happy to know that he no longer has to put up with his fat, loud, horrible students… or rather, that they have to put up with him.

        Thanks for reading my post, Dusty. I would like to point out, however, that the one thing that you point out (my suggestion that perhaps nobody is listening to them) might be misunderstood on your part.

        Firstly, the “them” I refer to is not the general black population. It was just another way of expressing how ill-equipped this “teacher” seemed when it came to communicating properly with his students.

        Secondly, I think you make an AWESOME point when you suggest that it is time that black students take responsibility and pride in their work! What a wonderful opportunity we have as teachers to set high standards for our students, and create for them a structured environment in our classrooms that can help them succeed in society.

        I speak, however, not from indoctrination (as you suggest I do, while you ironically appear to yourself!), but rather from education and experience.

        OH! And props to the colorful language you’ve included in your post to a stranger! None of my students, black or otherwise, have ever called me a “BIATCH,” so I’m glad that I’ve experienced something new today… (not as happy to hear you refer to other people as “animals,” but I find comfort in hoping that someone with your apparent levels of respect for humanity and society will not go far enough in life to actually influence others significantly).

        Have a great day, Dusty… and again, thank you for reading! I think I kind of like this online discussion thing!! It’s cool sharing ideas like this, as long as everyone can keep their head on straight!

      • ConradCA

        You haven’t taught in the same type of school as this teacher. There may be hope for your students. There is none for the authors students.

        He set standards and the students failed them. Not because of the teacher, but because education had no value to them. Teachers can only teach students who want to learn. You can’t expect them replace their parents and overcome the culture their parents imbue them with.

        Tell me how such a huge percentage of blacks are criminals and live off of welfare by choice. If they wanted to break out of the ghetto culture it is possible, but they choose not to. They could go to school and learn. They could refuse to have children when they are children and refuse to have children without marriage. They could join the military or go to college. The problem is that they choose poorly and suffer the consequences.

        Look at how successful the Cambodians or Vietnamese have been in our society. The vast majority of them lived through a horrible war and extreme poverty, yet they come to our country and succeed. The difference is that they don’t embrace the ghetto gang culture like these children do. They chose wisely.

    I am an African-American college graduate and I find this article disturbing.

    First, this teacher makes a strong assumption that all blacks are a certain way when in fact this teacher is speaking of his experience in one location, specifically the south. The south is where the spirit of racism is extremely prevalent, in whites and in blacks.

    Secondly, this teacher has completely ignored what is considered a basic understanding of sociology. Here’s a refresher: . In all races of people, there are different SOCIAL CLASSES. Most of the blacks he encountered were obviously from the Low Class. I find it very difficult to see blacks acting that way if their parents were educated and had some type of professional career. There are low class whites, Latino’s, Asian’s and they all have some level of ignorant behavior as well (park cars on front lawn, higher crime, bad schools, etc.)

    As a black growing up in a predominantly white middle class suburban neighborhood, I learned that whites can be very ignorant just like blacks. I have white friends who were drug addicts, criminals, cussed like sailors, disrespectful to parents/authority,and had no regard for life. The only difference is that their parents have money and this conceals their issues until they they decide to go a different direction in life. If you are from a Middle Class, you may have the option to screw up and make it right later, but if you are from a Lower Class, especially a black lower class, you do not have this luxury.

    Lastly, another issue that most whites do not understand about blacks is that blacks are currently going through an identity crisis. The problem with slavery was not just the fact that our ancestors were enslaved, but that the whites erased our heritage, history, and connections back to our ancient ancestry. Now over 250 years later, we have nothing to identify with. We can’t really identify with the Africans, because they see us as being spoiled and unappreciative of the lifestyle that we have in America. We also no longer understand African culture. We can’t identify with the whites because they were the ones who enslaved and discriminated against us which in turn left us with a certain level of animosity toward them. We can’t really identify with being American because America systematically segregated and oppressed us pre and post slavery. So the only thing we could do is find a new identity. Sadly, the prevailing identity blacks aspire to was birthed out of poverty and a feeling of being inferior to whites. Then to top it off, you have the emergence of the pimp culture of the 70’s and the rap music culture of today which has set us back another 100 years.

    So what I am saying. Well, I am in no way making excuses for blacks. What this teacher noted in his classroom is not something that should be taken lightly. I am ashamed to hear of this behavior in his classroom and anywhere in America where this type of conduct occurs. I do some volunteer work in the inner city working with young black males, and it is something I take dear to heart in order to correct. But before people stick their noses up and try to marginalize all blacks in the way this teacher did in making assumptions that all young blacks act this way, just understand that your attitude shows you are more ignorant then the people you are trying to stereotype.

    In
    1954 segregation was deemed unconstitutional in public schools by the Superior
    Court, which was 59 years ago. That is roughly three generations that
    blacks have been able to get the same type of education as whites. With
    that out of the equation, the majority of whites in America have many
    generations in families where proper social graces are handed down to one
    another, unlike blacks where they were often sold, shipped and traded around
    (often being torn away from loving families they made), and not taught
    such things that privileged whites would have naturally learned or acquired
    through having the upper hand throughout the years, in the traditional family
    life. This essay really begs the question: is this teacher’s rant really
    merited? Or is he mirroring the same
    ignorance he is scolding those who obviously come from a less privileged
    position in life that he does (only with proper spelling and grammar)?

    It is also interesting to know that he is teaching in a poor black neighborhood,
    the teacher would more than likely receive a similar outcome if he was teaching
    in a poor white neighborhood; albeit, the hardships of being a poor white
    person and a poor black person are nothing in comparison due to the history and
    hardship poor blacks, and a majority of blacks have had to endure throughout
    the years, something no white person could relate to, perhaps maybe they could
    understand it, but they are not black and have not lived through it. Therefore, you’d expect, or assume a privileged
    person of any given race who makes cracks at how an entire race of people do
    not know anything about their own history, let alone care to learn about
    history, should know enough about history that the very country that is
    employing him to teach these students has also held back the black American
    people for hundreds of years. Instead of
    scoffing at the misfortunes of such people, as a teacher it is his job, not
    just his job his duty as a teacher to find a way to empower his students, as
    opposed to making rants on Craigslist about how he is failing to reach out to
    these students, and crying about a job he chose at will to take.

    Despite the
    horrible stigma he has slapped on an entire race of people, there are a fair
    amount of successful black Americans who despite a history of living in impoverished
    circumstances, recognized that they are the ones to find a will and a way to
    break the cycle of poverty, not look for handouts, and earn more than a mere
    50k income, and become multimillionaires. However, if we are speaking something in
    understandably reachable circumstances for the average Tyrone, or Chantee we
    have to realise that the average black person will notice hiccups that the
    average white person may not with economic disparity because much more white
    people are able to get ahead with loans to start businesses and use their homes
    as collateral, whereas a fair amount of black people trying to make a
    head-start in life do not have these homes to put up for collateral. However, it just makes the process longer in
    comparison to whites; it does not make it impossible, and does not stop a
    successful mindset.

    Sadly this waste of an essay is a sad attempt at portraying
    an entire race of people as all the same, based on the author`s inadequacies as
    a teacher to succeed in reaching out to children that he is in a position to
    empower. The author has made a fool of
    himself in front of an informed audience of readers of any given race, be it Black,
    White, Native American, Spanish etc., that are the wiser and know, and probably
    work with or associate with empowered black people.

        there, but I did not desire to cause rifts between them, and focused my
        attention in posting here.

        Andre It is a shame that some white people such as the author of this article,
        who have a credible position in life aim to discredit an entire race of
        people through an argument of ignorance! It is also a shame that the
        herd mentality of those nodding their heads and agreeing with this person as
        you’ve relayed are yearning to see something more than a two second meme insult
        to feed their stereotype depictions of people like me and I assume you as well,
        and will buy into such a pathetic article without using any critical
        analysis.

        It is a shame that your efforts in educating the uninformed have gone in vain;
        however, there is hope! Perhaps you’ve place a seed of doubt in their
        sordid logic, and I’ve read a few of your posts and agree, with what I have
        read. So hopefully while they don’t want to hear it they can see people
        like us do not write in a style that is uneducated, hopefully they see that
        while people may not be equal we’ve taken the last 59 years of education that
        has been bestowed upon us to better ourselves, to not show them up, but to
        empower white people or other races with informed knowledge that we
        are not all one and the same and act with herd mentality.

        That we were the first powers to be in this world, we were the first Kings, and
        Queens, we did establish architecture, statues, philosophies, written languages and much more that
        amazes and mystifies this world today, in fact if it wasn’t for African decent people who learned how to survive the first stages of human evolution the human race would not exist! We have a lot to attribute to ourselves, and just because there was a hiccup over the last few hundred years does not mean that we are not able to get over it and be in a better position in the distant future. Hopefully, this does not mean that there will be a reversal in racism just that everyone no matter what skin tone one happens to be can refrain from using ignorance based on race against each other.

        John, what is even more sad is when you try to help educate them with facts and logic, they get defensive and begin to attak the messenger and not the message. The people on here who are perfectly fine with stereotyping an entire race because of the actions of a few get extremely angry when it is pointed out that 30% of whites in America are still racist. Do, you know how ironic that is? They believe the vast majority of black students are crap (when there is evidence and facts that say otherwise). They believe the vast majority of black adults either benefited from Affirmative action or are on welfare (when there is plenty of evidence that says otherwise). And yet, we don’t say the vast majority of white people are racist, JUST 30% (BECAUSE THERE IS PLENTY OF EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS). They call US RACIST!!!!! LOL Their hypocrisy knows no bounds!

      These students were given the opportunity to better themselves, but chose not to take advantage of it. They are stuck in the black ghetto because their choices.

      We have people who come to the USA after suffering worse fates than these students. Consider the Jewish holocoast survivors who had the majority of their families, relatives and friends killed and were worked to near death in concentration camps. Then there are the Cambodians who survived Pol Pot who murdered millions. These people actually suffered horrible tragedies in their lives and do much better on the whole than blacks.

    This is so sad…but unfortunately true for many Blacks in America. As you can likely tell from my picture, I’m Black (which means predominantly of African descent). On the one hand, this seems like a very intellectual form of racism (hold on, I’m not playing the race card here, keep reading!) in the sense that this teacher (presumably a White male) uses broad terms that imply this is his view of ALL Blacks. On the other, this sadly seems to be the norm in many communities, to the point where the exceptions are so rare that they’re almost not worth mentioning.

    I grew up in a predominantly Black & Hispanic neighborhood, but I went to a private school in a different neighborhood (which was also predominantly Black, but definitely less “ghetto”). Many of the problems described by the teacher of his students seem to be not so much a matter of ethnicity as a matter of CULTURE and UPBRINGING. Their parents are sending them to school expecting for the schools to not only teach them, but also discipline them and basically raise them in their stead. I wouldn’t be surprised if many of their parents are like those girls who plan to have lots of babies in order for the government to give them money so they don’t have to work.

    Most of the Blacks I knew growing up (and still know now) were not like this. Yes, some children were unruly, but not nearly to this extent. Then again, my exposure to other members of my ethnicity was mostly confined to church members (Christians, people with morals and values) and schoolmates or teachers (and the private school I attended was a Christian one). The first public school I attended was Michael E. Debakey School for Health Professions (affiliated w/ Baylor). The majority of students were actually minority students (Black, Hispanic, Asian, etc.), but considering the type of school it was and its entrance exam, it’s no surprise the students there were hard-working and dedicated to their studies.

    However, the next year, my mom transferred me to a magnet program at a different school, which also had a very good program. Thing is, it was in a minority neighborhood (I think the idea was that those in the magnet program–mostly Whites–would help to pull up the school’s average). This was the first time I really saw this kind of victim-defeatist-whatever mentality. I kind of knew about it in a vague, general sense, but I then saw firsthand those for whom being Black was at the crux of their identity as an individual.

    Because I used correct grammar (I’ve always been obsessed w/ speaking correctly), I sounded “White.” Because I liked rock, alternative, and techno music, I wasn’t “Black,” and so on and so forth. No one was outright hostile to me, and I honestly don’t take offense to being called that (my identity is found in CHRIST, not my skin color), but the mindset that one can be quantified by their ethnicity was definitely there. I didn’t, however, know anyone so bad as to have babies just to take advantage of the welfare system, though (even though a few 14yo freshmen had 2yo sons (whom they loved dearly)).

    Really, I think the only way to fix this problem (Blacks’ all-around bad behavior) is for those of us who have made something of ourselves to work one-on-one with these children. Obviously, their parents don’t care, or they’d discipline them properly (or at LEAST TRY), and it’s really not the government’s job to take care of our kids (although sometimes it seems like they’re trying to steal away that roll), so it’s up to those who care to reach out to them. Otherwise, the cycle keeps repeating itself: girl has lots of babies out of wedlock (likely by different guys), uses them for welfare, buys stuff for herself and neglects children, children see what she does and want an easy life when they’re older, so they just copy her. Few will try to break the cycle, and fewer still will succeed, but kudos to those who do. I believe Dr. Benjamin Carson is a prime example (although his mom was hard-working).

      Vueiy, Although I respect your opinion, you miss the mark in a couple ways. It is clear that you meant no malice as did the author. It is clear you would like to help rather than send most of us back to Africa as two posters want. However, your belief system is that of a stereotypical person who is “disconnected” from the issues that face the black community. This disconnect in most instances comes from a feeling that once a person has managed to escape the pitfalls and failures of the poor black communities that it somehow makes them an authority on how to change the plight of poor black people. In addition, you all begin to accept the propaganda and misinformation of those who have chosen to judge an entire race of people based on the actions of a few. Once you have accepted this nonsense you begin to repeat it. Some uninformed soul hears what you and others like you have to say and accept it because it is coming from a black source and believe that your remarks couldn’t possibly be racist. Then they start to repeat it. It is a cycle of discord and degradation that, although not intentional, is just as (if not more) detrimental to the problem. Even more hurtful than when actual racists say the same things. Let me explain.

      1) You don’t make clear that it is a minority amount of black people that you are speaking about. When making generalizations such as “this is unfortunately true for many blacks in America” you help perpetuate the MYTH that the MAJORITY of blacks in America are as the author describes them. And in this PARTICULAR instance, you help promote the fact that white kids would be better off going to poor white schools than affluent black ones when that is just patently absurd. Affluent black schools outperform poor whites by just as wide a margin as affluent white schools do poor black ones. Words have power. So, please be careful when using “many” because people often times take “many” to mean most. If you want to test that statement, tell a white person that “many” white people are racist and see what your response is. 30% of white America is still racist. In sheer numbers that would be over 65 MILLION racists in this country…so technically that is “many”. But say that to white people and see how important the word many is.

      2) It is Christians perpetuating the stereotypes, carrying out the systematic discrimination, the hate, and marginalization of an entire race. The black people you with the bad behavior are “Christians”. The KKK and Aryan nation are “Christian” organizations. These lying Politicians are “Christians”. So, please don’t pretend some migration or acceptance of “Christ” is going to change anything for anyone much less poor black people in America.

      3) One-on-One from people who have made it can help a few, but it won’t solve the problems of the poor black communities that are riddled with crime, low self esteem, and 50% of the culture dismissing education as unimportant. There are 4 schools in San Fran in poor black communities that have 100% graduation rates and 100% college acceptance rates. This was not achieved through one on one mentoring. It was achieved by schools, teachers and communities giving a damn about POOR BLACK CHILDREN. People don’t care how much you know until the know how much you care. You don’t think it is crystal clear to students that “whitey” who wrote this article didn’t care about them, and really despised them? A person can not hide who they are and how they feel on the inside for any sustainable period of time. These schools can be duplicated if people WITH MONEY actually cared about what goes on in the hood. This is not to say that some people with money wouldn’t donate or help out. But, they haven’t made a concerted effort thus far. But, the solution is MONEY. Economics effect every aspect of our lives. Change the economic status of these neighborhoods and you change the teachers, administrators, and even the curriculum. Then you change the performance. If you don’t believe me, check out the performance of poor white schools in West Virginia and Alaska who only graduate 68% of there WHITE STUDENTS and have some of the lowest test scores in the country. Then check out the affluent black schools which have very high graduation rates and test scores. It should make it CLEAR that it is not skin color, but about economics and caring.

        1. I can see your point there. Some people will think of the connotation of “many” (which for most would mean the “majority”) instead of the denotation (meaning a large number, but not necessarily the majority).

        2. BLATANTLY INCORRECT. TRUE Christians are to operate in love. Yes, we make mistakes, and there are some who perhaps were raised by racists to be racist who need to overcome this, but God’s Word is clear that racism is not Christian behavior. (Fred Price’s series on Race, Religion, & Racism is very good at explaining this and more, though it’s quite lengthy.) There will always be people claiming to be one thing, but their actions make it clear that they are NOT. Politicians often claim a religion in order to get votes (although I believe some are genuine), and the hatred of the KKK and so forth makes it quite plain that they are also not Christians. One of my favorite quotes on the matter is, “Sitting in church no more makes you a Christian than sitting in a garage makes you a car.” And let me tell you this: accepting Christ into your heart is the ONLY way a person can be made new.

        3. I should probably clarify that when I said, “those of us who have made something of ourselves,” I didn’t mean specifically those *Black people* who have made something of ourselves; I just meant people in general. And really, it just takes people with love and compassion showing that they care. You don’t have to be rich to help (although that certainly wouldn’t hurt); even just giving what extra you have can make a difference, even if it’s only in one child’s life.

        Honestly, the problem here (w/ these children) is a total lack of discipline, and that is not society’s fault or the schools’ fault, but the PARENTS’ fault. Because they didn’t care or didn’t know any better, they didn’t sufficiently discipline their children when they were young (think preschoolers), so they grew up unruly and copying their peers’ and parents’ behavior (or worse yet, emulating rap music videos). By the time they’re teenagers (and quite likely around the same size as their parents), this behavior has been ingrained, and is much more difficult to break. Even if their parents want to discipline them at this point, there’s a good chance they’ll just run away or possibly fight them (physically). It’s sad, but reforming kids of this age would be quite the uphill battle…but it IS still possible. Money will help, but what it really takes is a heart to change for the better.

        It’s pretty easy for a school to achieve 100% graduation and 100% college acceptance rates. Look how Trayvon’s school lowered the crime rate dramatically by changing the rules so crimes were not reported. Lowering standards and affirmative action can make your 100% easy to accomplish.

        First thing you do is ensure that students who are unable to function quit school and are not counted. Next you create a test that is easy to pass as your graduation requirement and have the students work on passing it every year. Colleges are controlled by progressive fascists. They demand minorities attend their schools so they adjust the requirements so that 100% of blacks who apply are admitted.

        It is a fact that half of the population of our prisons and jails are blacks and that is not because of racism. It’s because they commit crimes. They are from the same culture as these children.

      • Andre Bonds

        You actually wrong about it not being racism. Black people are stopped 11 times as often as whites. Black people get 3 times the amount of time in jail for FIRST TIME offenses. Now, here is the most egregious injustice….in terms of sheer numbers whites commit 3 times as many crimes as black people…so how on EARTH can there be half of the prisons filled with black people if whites are committing more crime?

      • anarchyst

        You are wrong. You could DOUBLE the amount of school funding and still come out with the same results. It’s the defective black CULTURE that is the problem.

    • ConradCA

      The author has identified the main problem that has kept a huge number of blacks trapped in a culture of failure. We might be able to fix this, but only if people accept reality. The reality that there is a huge problem with the ghetto gangster culture and that something needs to be done to replace this culture with values that allow them to succeed like most other people in the USA.

      Those that criticize the author are more interested in denying reality and calling the author names then solving this problem. The reality is that the children the author describes are representative of a huge number of primarily black people in our society. It explains why such a disproportionate percentage of blacks are criminals and on welfare.

      My solution for this problem is to eliminate welfare as we know it. I think that the government should replace welfare for all able bodied people with jobs like the Civilian Conservation Corp in the depression. Have them build trails and roads all over the country and live in government housing near their job sites. If they don’t perform or break the law then they are out without any welfare. This would be tough, but force them to change and develop a new culture.

    Honestly, I believe the environment I was raised in proved to be that catalyst that set me upon a firm and good path. It’s true that there are the exceptions, but we are not large enough to overcome the rule…and I can think of several times I was accosted for attempting to ‘Be something that I’m not’. I never was quite able to understand what was wrong with my love of reading, of indulging in the world around me and its history; I was beaten often for being a ‘white-lover’ if I dared cross paths with my own race…and this was well through middle school.

    I was raised by a father who had the good graces to do something with himself; he was a military man, and came home to work in Human Resources for a paper mill, while my mother was an RN. They encouraged me to seek out new experiences, to listen to new music and read through different novels. I never felt anywhere safer but in the comfort of my own home; I think I learned more there than I ever did at an educational establishment, save my last few years of high school.

    Reading through this, I can completely agree with the viewpoint that was expressed. Being a black male is not nearly enough to guarantee a sense of safety. I couldn’t help but see anyone of my own color as but an animal that was ready to turn on me for being a sort of traitor. Never had any black friends, now that I think about it. All of my friends were white, because they adhered to a system of logic that I could understand, and a sense of compassion that gave me hope in a hostile environment. With so much time around them, I felt myself growing distant. It had even gotten to the point that I could barely understand when another black person spoke to me (In the rare times it did; I was thankful to find a group of friends that helped to defend me in those moments).

    Time has passed. I’ve grown older, somewhat wiser. I work in a volunteer service in an attempt to get a scholarship towards my goal of being an English teacher, heavily influenced by a certain English III teacher I had who gave me one of my absolute favorite books, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. But even now as an adult, I find myself still feeling apprehensive around them, keeping my distance and to myself out of fear of an unwarranted reprisal of some sort.

    We’re out there, those of us with minds, with the capacity to learn. It just makes a man break down when he knows that there are so few of his own he can relate to.

      Just because it’s still around doesn’t mean that any of it is false. After working in a university for 20 years, I can tell you that this is true even at the university level. I had a meeting with a student organization specifically for black students; I was asked to give these students extra help. Therefore, one of the things I did was to give them a tour of the library. The next day, a black woman who was NOT a member of this organization stormed into the office, saying that I was RACIST for taking those students on a tour of the library because that was implying they were stupid! Everything is racist to black people. Everything is fuel for the eternal flame of their anger. Their senseless, unending, violent, self-destructive anger.

        You all created the monster now you complain because you can’t control it. Deal with it. If there hadn’t been 500 years of treating us like we weren’t human, there would be no racial animus from either side. Take Scandinavian countries who didn’t enslave 10 million Africans. There is NO RACISM over there. Take responsibility for the 30% of white Americans who are still racist today…including yourself. Then we can move on. But, as it stands 90% of racists in the country won’t even admit that they are racist. How crazy is that/

        Why don’t you take control of your own? Why is it always someone else’s responsibility? Why can’t the black population take responsibility for themselves? I have never owned any slaves, and you were never a slave, yet you live in a perpetual victim status? Grow and and put your big boy pants on and be a man. Part of freedom is responsibility. Quit complaining about things that happened 150+ years ago. You didn’t live it and neither did anyone alive today. BTW – it was other tribes that sold each other off to the slave trade, go to the library and look it up yourself.

In 2013, people still get denied housing, loans, education, health care, and equal protection under law …just because they are black. This is not opinion or conjecture, it is proven, verifiable fact! You all want to deny that this happens because you are not brave enough to just come out and say you are racist BECAUSE OF TRADITION AND BIAS. This is why you come up with BS in order to try to justify your racism. Well let me tell you this…there is NO JUSTIFICATION FOR STUPIDITY. And Racism…regardless of what race is racist is STUPID.
        As for the slave trade…..trust me I know more about that you do. And why is it that Africans selling Africans justifies what Americans did to Africans??????

      • Professor2

        God get over it already. Slavery is just an excuse. Jews were rounded up an SLAUGHTERED just 80 years ago and they are doing just fine. Blacks have been MORE than “equal” under law for more than 50 years and they have regressed culturally and economically. People do NOT get denied anything because they are black- they get extra benefits because they are black. I have lost THREE academic jobs to which I was applying because a less qualified black female was hired. Homey is not playing your game no more and we certainly are not buying your garbage. Take care of your babies and baby mammas, stop breaking the law and get back to work. Not hard if you reward that. Hard if you just whine and make excuses.

      • Andre Bonds

        You have no idea what you are talking about. You are speaking strictly from an emotional point of view. You are angry at an entire race of people based on the actions of a few people in that race.

        If in fact you got passed over because of a less qualified black woman then that PAILS in comparison to how many times I have been passed over for a less qualified, less competent, and sometimes less intelligent white person. Affirmative Action ( I am assuming you are referring to) had to be invented because of how uneven the playing fields were and still are because of white people who feel like you.

        Let me ask you this (which not ONE person who feels like you has EVER been able to answer intelligently): If black people were not equal and hated by the majority of white people during Jim Crow 60’s and even early 70’s WHEN DID THE RACISTS ALL OF A SUDDEN STOP BEING RACIST?

        Are you in the 30% of white America who still believes they are better than black people by virtue of skin color?

      • Andre Bonds

        You are only speaking from an emotional standpoint. You obviously dislike black people based on information that is untrue. But, understand this…even if the things you believed about black people (that you won’t even be honest about) were true, it would be only a small percentage of black people who do all of the things that you believe. So, you judge all of us based on that actions of less than 20% in most cases. That, my friend, IS NOT logical or justified, it is ignorance.

        As for the Jews, the short period of time, the 1 million people they lost, the fact that they got reparations, and the fact that they can BLEND IN to white culture COMPLETELY changes they dynamics. It is not even close to a fair comparison. After all, 30% of AMERICANS don’t hate Jews just because of their religion. But, 30% of white Americans hate black people simply because of the color of their skin.

      • ConradCA

        It was way more than 1 million. Try 6 million.

        It’s not a small percentage of blacks that belong to the ghetto gangster culture. Something close to 50% at least as 40% of young black men are in prison, jail or on parole at any time.

        So what racist organization did you get the claim that 30% of whites are racist?

      • Andre Bonds

        Lol..how can 40 or 50% of black men be in prison if there is less than 2.2 million prisoners nationwide and there are 14 million young black men? Even if we were ALL of the prisoners were black it would still only be about 15%.

        It is also a very poor assumption to believe that because someone is in jail they are ghetto. What about the fact that white people commit times as many crimes in terms of sheer numbers? Does that make all of those white people Ghetto?

        The 30% number came from Tim Wise…a white guy. Is he racist for saying so? What would be you estimate?

    INDEED!!! Nothing in this article shocked or surprised me. I have lived and raised my children with blacks- the laziest of the lazy- entitled beyond belief. I showed a young black man a different way of life- but the indoctrination of his RACIST parents will never truly change his life. As soon as the bullets started flying we got the hell out of the area as soon as possible. THE ONLY SOLUTION TO THIS ISSUE IS SEGREGATION- ONLY EDUCATED BLACKS WITH NO POLITICAL AGENDA CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF BLACK CHILDREN TODAY. Then and only then will the CHILDREN be EXPECTED TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES!! DESEGREGATION AND THE KENNEDY-JOHNSON ADMINISTRATION DESTROYED THE BLACK FAMILY OF EVER ACHIEVING GREATNESS.

      Glad you are not black. But de-segregation hurt our community more than it helped, I agree. But what you don’t understand is that once we started doing well in our segregated communities, white people got jealous. Look up the only incidence of this country bombing its own citizens: Black Wall Street.

      Lastly, education has much more to do with economics than race. Of course culture plays a part. But if you study affluent black communities you will find they have almost a 100% graduation rate and their test scores similar to whites nationwide. So, it can not be COLOR that is the problem..otherwise affluent black kids would be horrible too ..right?

        The main difference between successful blacks and failures like those described in this article is culture. Successful blacks don’t have children out of marriage. They don’t commit crimes and they don’t live as leaches on society. They value education, hard work and adopt the same values as other American middle class people.

    Folks, I too, have taught school in predominantly black schools, and I can attest that this sort of behavior goes on with regularity all over the USA, and it is, for the most part tolerated and if a teacher, especially a white teacher, tries to do anything about, he or she is called a racist and the administrators generally take the side of the hooligans. Therefore, the administrators undermine the teacher’s authority and encourages even more outrageous behaviors.
    I, for one, did not tolerate this crap in my classroom, and I would single out the ring leaders (there is an Alpha Leader in all these gangs and mobs) and shut him or her down, and if necessary have them removed from the classroom, and the disruptions would end, and then the kids who Went Along to Get Along out of fear of retaliation from the Thugs after class and behind the scenes would punish them and beat them back into compliance. This is how all gangs operate. And, these thugs with the Grills, The Baggies, and Da Shine are the Ring Leaders of this outrageous behavior, and most other teachers and especially the black teachers not only condone this behavior, but also encourage it so as to stay in favor with the thugs who they secretly fear themselves, and besides, it is easier to allow this outrageous behavior than to teach a subject they likely are not qualified to teach to begin with.

    The problem is NOT race, black people come here from Africa and achieve just like any other immigrant with hopes.

    The problem is culture. The culture of the black American community is designed and steeped in failure. The reasons for this are not all apparent to the casual observer, I certainly am not an expert, nor do I purport to be.

    I do see certain things that lead me to conclusions:
    It is clear that progressive political ideology has co-opted the black community for the purposes of obtaining power. They do this by selling various forms of philosophical ideas that justify what amounts to the revenge of blacks against whites for generations of slavery and the following generations of oppression. To many, the idea that the progeny of one group should pay penance for the sins of their forebears to the victims of these sins seems perfectly justifiable.

    The revenge comes in affirmative action, where minorities are afforded entrance to educational institutions and later into employment on the basis of lower standards than must be achieved by the white majority. It also comes in the notion that white people should pay for nearly unlimited stints on various social welfare programs for any black who desires to conduct their financial future based on government largess. It comes in the form of black employees who get away with behavioral infractions of company policies that would get any white person fired.

    Affirmative action makes the successes achieved on merit alone, of black persons, suspect. I’m not saying those successes are not admirable and valid, what I am saying is that, absent conclusive proof of said merit and given what is known about the favoritism of affirmative action, one is not always sure the success was earned rather than given. The ONLY reason this matters is that those who do achieve success on their merits are followed by a cloud of doubt.

    For anyone, of any color, race, national origin etc, the life of a person on government assistance is a rather lesser existence. It is a life where getting a low wage, entry level job will make one unqualified to receive further assistance, thus without long term vision of rising through the ranks of the workforce, one is hard pressed to find motivation to jeopardize the government hand outs with employment.

    The black employees, who game the system to get away with poor performance or other issues within their employment, generate a hostility towards themselves that leads to personal discrimination of their co-workers who see their actions and lack of consequences as reprehensible and unfair. The problem with this is that it leads to more racial discrimination, somewhat justified, that leads to blacks screaming racism.

    Not all blacks are guilty of the worst intentions associated with these things, though many are and it’s hard to tell for sure who are the ones that are ignorant of the cause effect relationships and which ones are just doing what they are taught to do to cope with life.

    What I have found is that those who live in homogenously black neighborhoods, within the culture described, are not reachable, will not consider being friends or even friendly with white people who do not cater to the ideals that comprise white guilt liberal culture. The whites they do publicly associate with, they disdain when not present.

    My opinion is based on stereotypes, ones to which not all individuals perfectly comport. There are exceptions to every rule…exceptions prove rules more than they dispell them.

      Michael, thank you! You PERFECTLY illustrate in this post why African-Americans are not “just race baiting” or using the “race card”. You prove that racism is still a big part of the lives of black people in America due to stereotypes, myths, and propaganda. There are seemingly intelligent people who actually believe they can JUSTIFY racism..smh. Well here are a few of the hypocritical and/or illogical flaws in your argument.

      1) The political affiliation of black people with the Democratic party was when we switched from the GOP and is now about Civil rights. Conservatives (who used to be Dem. but now are GOP) have historically and still to this day try to block and demonize all manner of civil rights. This is women’s rights, gay rights, immigrant rights, black rights, or any other rights of people who are not on the right. The propaganda that welfare is the reason that black people vote for Democrats has to justify the hypocrisy because it neglect the 39% of people on welfare who are white. And if those white people ALSO vote for Dems just because of welfare, why do you all ONLY assign this tag to the blacks in this category?

      2) The oppression that AA have endured for 500 years had a profound effect on the psychological health of this culture that is UNIQUE to American Slaves. With that being said, that is NOT what most of us trying to call attention to. We are trying to open you all’s eyes to the fact that BECAUSE YOU BELIVE WHAT YOU BELIEVE CURRENTLY, black people are denied equal opportunities for jobs, housing, loans, education, equal protection under the law, health care, or a level playing field in any area of our lives EXCEPT SPORTS and Hip-hop Music only. You say you question the successes of black people because of the possibility of Affirmative Action being the reason for them getting the opportunity in the first place. Here is the hypocrisy: You would also have to question the successes of white people who benefit from nepotism, good ole boy networking, or just plain old being white. These things happen INFINITELY more than Affirmative Action opportunities. In fact, these are exactly why Affirmative Action was created! Surely you know that the playing field was not level during Jim Crow. You do know how desperately the south fought to KEEP Jim Crow laws. So, at what point do you believe that vast majority of white people (especially in the south) decided that black people are equal and should be considered equally in all fields? Please tell me what year that was…since you STILL don’t feel this way.

      3) I have NEVER heard of any black neighborhoods (poor, middle class, or rich) trying to deny white people from buying homes there. Although, I am sure we can find a hand full of cases for just about anything, I think we can agree that housing and loan discrimination is almost exclusive to white people. In addition, there are so few black people who declare that they don’t want to associate with white people that it is hardly worth mentioning. If Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have white friends, what justification would any black person except for the most hateful have for not associating with white people. I take from your post that you have not spent any significant time in a predominately black neighborhood, so your speculation based simply on myth is slightly amusing actually.

        Andre – what the fuck are you talking about?? You say “The oppression that AA have endured for 500 years had a profound effect
        on the psychological health of this culture that is UNIQUE to American
        Slaves” But facts point out your ignorance!1 500 years would put the date back to 1513 …. there wasn’t even a U.S. then smh….. also —-

        About 600,000 slaves were imported into the U.S., or 5% of the 12
        million slaves brought across from Africa to the Americas. The great
        majority of African slaves went to sugar colonies in the Caribbean and
        to Brazil, where life expectancy was short and the numbers had to be
        continually replenished. Life expectancy was much higher in the U.S.
        (because of generally better food, less disease, lighter workloads, and
        better medical care) so the numbers grew rapidly by excesses of births
        over deaths, reaching 4 million by the 1860 Census.

        So the slaves in the U.S. were treated better and only 5% of the total slave trade came here ….. yet according to you “it had a profound effect on the psychological health of this culture that is UNIQUE to American Slaves.” So they were being fed better, less disease they had to suffer through here, they were worked less, and had better medical care ….. yet this has a UNIQUE effect on the blacks here to be worse than any where else? …smh

        You say ….. “The propaganda that welfare is the reason that black people vote for Democrats has to justify the hypocrisy because it neglect the 39% of people on welfare who are white. And if those white people ALSO vote for Dems just because of welfare, why do you all ONLY assign this tag to the blacks in this category?”

        But the facts say something else … Lower-income and less educated whites also have shifted substantially toward the Republican Party since 2008. and that’s according to Pew Research.So what you said doesn’t hold out in the wash since even low income less educated are leaning republican over the last 5 years probably longer …. so you are again going back to “history” to justify your argument! smh….

        You say ….. I think we can agree that housing and loan discrimination is almost exclusive to white people….

        “The housing bubble was inflated by federal policies created by
        President Bill Clinton, then expanded by President George W. Bush. The policies were supported by Senator and then President Barack Obama. The policies were intended to help low-skilled Americans — especially African-Americans — and Hispanic immigrants gain housing wealth by pushing down mortgage requirements, such as down-payments.”

        So ever since Clinton (1993 to 2001) blacks and hispanics were being loaned money that they did not deserve just because they were black and hispanic!! So you are going way back in your agument over housing discrimination which seems to be a crutch for you eh? smh….

        All your arguments can be shown to be bullshit and just the ranting of another black using history to justify the behavior of blacks!! But I have been up all night or I could really crush your pathetic arguments with facts, graphs, spreadsheets and logic!! You are another damn whining cry baby that refuses to see the blacks problems are brought on by the blacks ….. over 70% illegitimate births anyone?? Think kids not having any idea who the hell their father is might fuck their heads up??

        I’m so sick of people like you looking for excuses for your races failures when they are as obvious as the nose on your face!!

      • Andre Bonds

        Dude, only RACISTS try to justify Slavery by saying that Africans were better off as slaves. You are out of your cotton picking mind! 500 years was the Transatlantic slave trade. But, Slaves in America…WAAYY more than the lie you believe of only 600k, were treated worst than any slaves in the history of this world except the West Indies. You are actually trying to convince your self that whipping a slave to death and making his family watch, chopping off feet, Selling fathers off so slave owners could rape the women and dismember the family, hanging men, women and children, and the raping of teenaged girls was GOOD TREATMENT and didn’t have effects on subsequent generations at all! You are smoking crack! lol
        As for the numbers check out the 1860 Census.

        1860

        1860 – U.S. Census. U.S. population: 31,443,321. Total number of slaves in the Lower South : 2,312,352 (47% of total population). Total number of slaves in the Upper South: 1,208758 (29% of total population). Can you read that? How you like those apples? 600 Thousand for entire slave trade in America?? You are a funny guy.

        You contradict yourself in your own lame ass argument. You are trying to impeach my argument that you all don’t assign the same blame to poor white people as black people for voting democrat. Then you sight a MIGRATION of poor white people to the republican party! That is dumb as hell!! If there is a MIGRATION of poor white people to the republican party..THEN THERE HAS TO BE WHITE POOR WHITE PEOPLE WHO VOTE DEMOCRAT…smart guy! Lmaoooo. So, if there are POOR WHITE PEOPLE WHO STILL TO THIS DAY VOTE DEMOCRAT…I will ask again…WHY DON’T YOU INDICT THEM FOR JUST VOTING DEMOCRAT BECAUSE OF WELFARE?????

        As for the housing discrimination….49% of African Americans with similar (high enough) credit scores and financial backgrounds are denied loans as opposed the only 42% of white people with the exact same criteria. THAT IS RACISM! It is even worse for Hispanics who are denied over 50% of the time.

        So your attempts at challenging my arguments, although amusing, fail miserably. But thanks for the laugh.

        dumb fuck … I took my info straight out of the encyclopedia which to the last of my knowledge isn’t a lie …. oh unless the stupid ass opinion your spouting off here is THE TRUTH!!

        And what the fuck does this even mean?

        But, Slaves in America…WAAYY more than the lie you believe of only
        600k, were treated worst than any slaves in the history of this world
        except the West Indies.

        What I posted was this dumb fuck … I know your having a hard time comprehend the words on this page but please strain that tiny little fucking nut you call a brain and read again!

        ” About 600,000 slaves were imported into the U.S., or 5% of the 12 million slaves brought across from Africa to the Americas. The great majority of African slaves went to sugar colonies in the Caribbean and to Brazil, where life expectancy was short and the numbers had to be continually replenished.

        This is fact and can be verified in any fucking encyclopedia you would like to check! And yes …. the fucking slaves in this country were indeed TREATED BETTER(I never said they were treated good dumb fuck) than the majority of those being sold from africa( by other black people selling your asses to slave traders … more facts you seem to want to ignore)that went to the Caribbean and Brazil!!

        And then you go find an 1860 census to prove me wrong about the 600,000 slaves that came here not in the 1860’s dumb fuck but when the U.S. first started buying your dumb ass kin from other blacks in africa! If you would have just read … (or wait you may have read but you are so fucking stupid you can’t understand what I posted) it says so “the numbers GREW RAPIDLY by excesses of births over deaths(BECAUSE YOU WERE TREATED BETTER HERE THAN IN THE OTHER PREVIOUS MENTIONED COUNTRIES THAT THE MAJORITY OF YOUR KIN WERE SOLD TO), reaching 4 MILLION by the 1860 Census.” So you using a fucking census from 1860 just proved true what I had posted here in the first place …. thank you dumb fuck!!

        And then you come off with this idiotic fucking shit …..
        Then you sight a MIGRATION of poor white people to the republican party!
        That is dumb as hell!! If there is a MIGRATION of poor white people
        to the republican party..THEN THERE HAS TO BE WHITE POOR WHITE PEOPLE
        WHO VOTE DEMOCRAT…smart guy! Lmaoooo. So, if there are POOR WHITE
        PEOPLE WHO STILL TO THIS DAY VOTE DEMOCRAT…I will ask again…WHY
        DON’T YOU INDICT THEM FOR JUST VOTING DEMOCRAT BECAUSE OF WELFARE?????

        That is so fucking retarded I’m not even going to waste time proving how fucking dumb you truly are!! But I will say I HATE any fucking idiot that votes for a worthless, sorry ass, demoncrap…. poor, rich, black, or white!! so Lmaoooo some more SMART GUY …. but I’m not bothering to reply to you any more because facts obviously confuse you since you couldn’t even understand the FACTS I posted here the first time!!

        But I am going to take your post and post it on Facebook so everyone can see how stupid and fucking dumb you are while trying to act like you are so intelligent! You can’t understand or comprehend shit I posted that was taken straight out of a encyclopedia …. not shit I made up like you did …. so fuck you numbnuts….. go pat yourself on the back, give yourself a piece of chicken, and tell everyone how fucking smart you are!!

        THE FACT REMAINS SLAVES IN THE U.S. WERE TREATED WORSE THAN ANY SLAVES IN HISTORY. You should be happy about that since you hate black people so much!! Why deny it?
        Racism like religion is based on BELIEFS of the emotional…not facts. Couple that with the fact that you are just not very bright, means there is nothing I could say to make you think critically or objectively about this subject. You have been brainwashed and you are proud of it. It’s sad, you are sad.

    Liberalism is not working, that’s plain to see. That’s what needs to change. These kids don’t need AFFIRMATIVE ACTION treatment they need to get their rear end kicked in order to join the society of producers. Those that can’t cut the mustard and won’t change then it’s a one way ticket back to Africa. That should shut them up about racism.

        The poor whites did not seem to be the problem this article was talking about. They passed. It was the attitude of the blacks who were helped along with affirmative action policies and then developed an entitlement and victim mentality.

      • Andre Bonds

        You didn’t answer the question. Where are you going to send the underachieving poor white kids who dropout?

      • spawn44

        You want an answer based on underachieving. That isn’t what the article was about at all. It was about the attitude of the blacks kids in this school from the teachers perspective. The teacher said the poor white kids passed through. I got from this the AFFIRMATIVE ACTION LIBERAL SYSTEM is not helping these kids. In fact it is doing harm by making them believe in the entitlement and I am a victim way of life.

      • Andre Bonds

        The article makes a sweeping generalization about all black students. He doesn’t have empirical evidence in order to make such a determination.

      • spawn44

        True, nobody does. However, I didn’t take that away from the article. My take was the teacher wanted to convey the system was not working by catering to the blacks. It was letting them take the easy road instead of being forced to put the effort necessary to succeed

      • Andre Bonds

        2 things. 1) He said “But the real black is not on television, and you pull your purse closer when you see him, and you lock the car doors when he swaggers by with his pants hanging down almost to his knees.

        For those of you with children, better a smaller house in a white district than a fancy one near a black school.”
        That is about ALL BLACK PEOPLE AND ALL BLACK SCHOOLS!
        And if a person was being objective…it would be easy to see that there are plenty of black schools doing as good or better than white schools….especially POOR white schools. Which brings me to the second point;
        2) POOR WHITE DISTRICTS have just as many dropouts and have just as bad test scores as poor black districts. So, this teacher trying to send white kids to poor white schools than affluent and/or better performing black schools is just plain racist. There is no other way it can be perceived by an objective person.
        So, all the people posting on here trying to defend such nonsense are either misguided and misinformed OR racist themselves and feel it necessary to take up for this clown. Either way, I am not the enemy just because I am being objective.
        Let me say again so there is no misrepresenting my position: Yes there are poor black schools , students, and teachers who leave a lot to be desired. They need to change and do better. Yes, the culture of poor black students who don’t have any goals for the future other than “trying to get by” is terrible. However, the VAST MAJORITY of black students (around 80%) are not these kids that this teacher referred to. And since the poor white schools perform at very poor level also, it is easy to see that education has much more to do with economics than skin color. So, those of us looking at the entire picture, instead of just the narrow minded view of it, can see how broad the problem of POVERTY is, not how “black people just suck because of the system”. Because if that were the case, then the author would be saying poor white kids suck because of the system too.

      • spawn44

        I don’t disagree. But I don’t believe Affirmative Action has any place in the system period. Many of these kids should be rear end kicked instead of babied along. Black or White.

      • Andre Bonds

        That is not Affirmative Action. That is lazy, incompetent teachers and schools trying to keep their accreditation by graduating the minimum amount of students in order to do so.

      • Frank Black

        The evidence is in the writers observation, and the observations of 99% of the posters. In fact, you seem to be the sole voice saying it’s all untrue and racis.

    I taught for years in the Detroit Public Schools. I absolutely agree with and support these statements and observations. The only difference I saw is that the black students I had were prejudiced against light-skinned blacks: the blacker your skin color the better, as far as they were concerned. The one exception: blacks from Africa. The blacks hated blacks from Africa even if the ones from Africa had (or maybe because they had) the blackest skin of all. My assistant-principal was from Nigeria and the kids ridiculed him all the time. Bill Cosby is right: Until the blacks change their own culture, attitudes and behavior, nothing will change for them no matter what whites try to do. The blacks hated Cosby because he said this to them.

      Why speak in such generalizations when a large majority of black students are successful?

      Reply
      • Crowds Gather

        Because, in fact, and as a whole they are not. All statistical, factual evidence supports that fact. Graduation rates, for example, do not reflect ‘success’ when most ‘pass’ because teachers are too intimidated or resigned to fail them in large numbers or at all. Most will not do even the basic work and refuse to learn, counting on the fact that teachers and the administration will pass them anyway to look good and protect their livelihood. Most black students graduating from high school, at least in urban, black areas, can barely read or write to any degree. Their own culture views academic achievement as being ‘white’ and, therefore, bad and undesirable. Until that changes, they will continue to fail, be impoverished and dependent. They want the whites to support them while they do whatever feels good. The problem most whites have is that they are susceptible to what one of my black colleagues called ‘doing the black thing on you.’ They call whites prejudiced and racist, etc., because they have learned that it will cause whites to back off (fail to require or enforce standards academically or otherwise) and let the blacks do what they want (goof off and avoid any effort that is difficult or challenging or fail to control disruptive behavior that they think is fun or scores them points in the eyes of their peers). Until whites learn that, they will continue to be viewed as ‘suckers’ by most in the black community and will continue to be subject to this kind of manipulation by blacks. It isn’t prejudice on my part or on the part of others who try to people what it is really like. Instead, it is our desire to change the system so that the black kids won’t continue to be, as another of my black colleagues said (after being forced out of her classroom by the disruptive behavior of her all black class and referring, as I later confirmed with her personally, to the black community as a whole), ‘an embarrassment to us all.’

      • Andre Bonds

        If you are not using graduation rates and test scores to determine that MOST black people suck at education…what are you using?

        And are you applying the same amount of dislike, disgust, and disdain to the poor white students in Alaska , West Virginia, and the other states that are over 90% white yet have students with high dropout rates and terrible test scores?

      • Crowds Gather

        I feel sorry for you because you have your mind made up and decided to characterize me with a negative stereotype and negative feelings that I do not have. In fact, I persevered because I did care very deeply about the students. I was horrified by the effects that negative peer pressure had on those who wanted to and could have achieved and, instead, were dragged down by their peers and their culture. Several of my best students were killed as a result of black gang and drug violence.The concerns and observations that I shared were those of the majority of my mostly black colleagues as well, not mine alone.

      • Andre Bonds

        That’s all fine and good. But, can you answer the questions?

        If you are not using test scores and graduation rates to determine that MOST black kids are education averse, then what are you using to make your determination?
        And do you view the poor performing poor white kids the same way?

      • ConradCA

        Experience teaching to students. The fact that young black men are 35 times more likely to commit murder then young white men. That 40% of young black men are in prison, jail or on parole at anytime. That close to 80% of black babies are born to single mothers. That 28.75% of blacks are on welfare. I could go on, but I think you get the point.

      • Andre Bonds

        You avoided the question. Are you condemning the 15 million more poor white people than black people. The 170,000 white men who rape white women (less than 12 thousand black men raped white women last year), the 32% drop out rate in West Virginia which is 95% white, the white men who are 12 times more likely to be a serial killer or 9 times more likely to carry out a domestic terrorist act? Do you consider that in terms of sheer number…. white people commit more crime in this nation that black; that there are more white people on welfare than black; that there are more racist white people than black; that black men get 3 times as much time as white for the same crimes; that black men are stopped and frisked 10 times as many times as white people for drugs even though white people are 4.5 times as likely to have drugs on them. I could go on an on ..but you get my point. The question is: DO YOU CRITISIZE WHITE PEOPLE THE SAME WAY THAT DO YOU DO BLACK PEOPLE??

    If the black community in this country truly wants to make serious gains they need only look at what Asian immigrants to the US manage to do within one generation. They emigrate to this country with nothing, learn English, work non-stop, save obsessively,, buy businesses and raise children who are required to excel academically and learn the benefits of hard work. These children of immigrants manage to blow every other demographic in this country away on the ACT/SAT/LSAT/MCT/GMT etc. They dominate Ivy League admissions and graduate school admissions. Their cultures disapprove of illegitimate kids and teen pregnancy so their rates of both are the lowest of any demographic in this country.

    None of this is rocket science. When you are raised in a culture which has no respect for anything or anyone, you will never be respected. Black America continues to be the willing permanent underclass of the Democratic Party and Liberals. The sad thing is that after 50 years, they simply cannot learn that doing the same things over and over again will never achieve better results. Bad decisions equal bad outcomes. Always.

    Black America is sadly undergoing a devolution at warp speed, and its no longer anyone’s fault but their own.

      How do African-Americans who migrate to other countries do? They migrate to Germany, Austria, Japan, Spain, Canada,China and other countries and report that they are treated infinitely better overseas than here in the states and many of them stay. I have 3 relatives and 2 friends who permanently live abroad for this very reason. They are successful, productive citizens, who value education,learn the language,, open businesses and have children who do the same. I have one cousin who teaches at a university in Japan. She has only been there 5 years. So, although I understand what you are TRYING to say, your opinion is laced with prejudice that you don’t even realize that you have. Let me correct a couple of them. 1) the 24% poverty rate is the lowest it has ever been for blacks in the history of America. So, we are not devolving. Second, with 76% of the race being successful we have plenty of respect for ourselves and others. Third, institutional racism still exists. This means we are still denied housing, loans, college admission, jobs, and credit because of our color. We are still racially profiled by cops, given 3 times as much time for the same crimes, executed at twice the rate, and charged at a much higher rate for drug crimes when white people are 4.5 more likely to have drugs on them. In addition, otherwise good people like yourself believe nonsense and still have these prejudiced attitudes towards us. In fact, poor and middle class white people still believe they are better than even the most successful black people like Colin Powell, Condi Rice, President Obama, Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, Bob Johnson, Chris Rock, and the list goes on and on. Although, I don’t know you and I don’t know if you are racist or not. I do know you believe things that are not true about black people and it makes me wonder where these beliefs came from.

    Take a look at all the idiots who say conservatives only oppose Obama because he his black. Obama’s disasterouse policies. His betrayal of our people in Benghazi and lies about it. His betrayal of the country and seal team 6 after OBL was killed. His illegal usage of the IRS against his enemies. His hypocritical lies in 2008 about how he wouldn’t spy on American citizens like Bush did. His lies about ObamaCare and the fact that he signed that disaster. Look at the persecution of Zimmerman.

        Now for some logic. Would a 10 year old who has had a great education score higher or lower than a 10 year old who can barely read? Thank you and good night!

The question is …what is it about our skin color that makes you believe you are better than us even if we are more successful?

      • schnoorky

        The truth is I really don’t care about you or what you do or what your people do. I believe that forced integration and assimilation in white communities and only white communities is obviously a program of white genocide. It eventually leads to no more white babies! I resent anti-whites pushing this program of genocide. I believe peoples should be allowed to go their own way.
        I don’t think I’m “better” than you – I just like my people, culture and civilization better. Is that so hard to understand? I don’t want to be forced to assimilate with your people and other non-white people. Yet, there are no white countries that are allowed to remain white homelands. All white countries and only white countries are forced to accept massive non-white immigration and then forced to “assimilate” with them. This is so obviously white genocide. Diversity is just a code word for white genocide. When is the last time you heard Nigeria needs to accept massive non-black immigration and integrate with the newcomers? When is the last time you heard Saudi Arabia needs to accept massive non-Arab immigration and integrate with the newcomers? How come it’s white countries and only white countries that are forced to undergo “diversity”?

      • Andre Bonds

        There is no such thing as white genocide. It is myth and propaganda used to manipulate people. Let’s look at the numbers to see if am correct. Whites make up 73 percent of this nation now. 24 percent of the rest of the country is ethnic. 3% is two or more races. So, since late 1960’s when interracial marriage between Whites and others was legal…there has only been 1.5% increase in bi-racial people in this country. At the current rate of .25% increase per year it would take 400 generations (not years but generations!) for it to just be 50/50 white people to others!!! Lol. You all are up in arms about something that would take over 1000 years before things are JUST EQUAL. Stop the madness!
        As for white countries remaining white, Scandinavian countries are still less than 2% of other cultures. And they are less racist than the states. In fact, the “white race” never existed until the U.S colonies. Europeans NEVER considered themselves WHITE. They never lumped all Caucasians into one group just so they could feel better about themselves. Referring to people as “white people” is a completely American construct used to play poor and indentured Europeans against all poor and enslaved black people. It was divide and conquer. Divide the poor and middle class and they will never threaten the upper class. Guess what, it is still the strategy of the conservatives and it is still working. Sad but true.

        There may not be such thing as “white genocide” there is however, such thing as the creation of white subservience. It is a simple fact that white people as a whole are constantly told that they are raciest. We are brow beat into thinking that we are intolerant and are constantly having “diversity lessons” shoved at us. As if blacks, mexicans, asian, ext. have never been or never will be raciest…..PLEASE!

        While your numbers are interesting the fact is that America was founded by Europeans who were, to put it simply white skinned. So it only makes sense that 73% of this nation is still “white”. Africa for instance is 79.0% black people. I don’t hear anyone calling that NOT EQUAL. As for where the word “white people” came from, well, hmmmm, could possibly have been black people. While Europeans may not have started out calling themselves “white people”. It sure ended up that way.

        You say that Scandinavian countries are still less than 2% of other cultures and are “less racist than the states”. Well, lets just think about this for a sec. If there is less than 2% of other races then there is not really any “conflict” is there. Many of those people could probably go their entire life and not see a black person. So why would they have anything less than “tolerance”?

        In the end I think what this person was trying to get across in his essay was that there are large groups of black people who hate just as much and maybe even more than a raciest white person. That while segregation ended they still continue to keep themselves segregated touting that its “whitey” keeping them down. That the more whites try to “make up” make up for the wrongs of our past the more blacks feel entitled.

      • Andre Bonds

        Melanie, it doesn’t seem that you are racist. It seems you are just trying to get a grip on this turmoil. I respect that completely. My goal when I replied at first was to just express that sweeping generalization such as the author of this essay made are always false and often come from a preconditioned attitude towards the object of the generalization. This holds true. The admonition of this author was to KEEP WHITE KIDS away from ALL black schools. Now, you seem like a reasonable person. So, you have to understand how absurd that is. You have to understand that it comes from a place of prejudice not just experience. There are many many successful black schools in this country. Some of them are in poor black communities! I understand the author’s frustration. But, had he experienced poor behavior (different but still bad) in the poor white schools who only graduate 68% of their students and have just as poor test scores…would he have then told all black people to stay away from poor white schools? I think not! The focus on skin color is almost uniquely British and American. My point was poor white schools perform just as poorly as poor black schools. That is a fact that can be verified. So, education is much more effected by economics than skin color. That is true.
        You wonder were the term “white people” came from. It was NOT BLACK PEOPLE..lol. Europeans NEVER referred to themselves as white people. In fact, the vast majority STILL don’t. “White” was specifically constructed by southern slave owners in order to divide the poor and middle class Europeans from the poor and middle class Africans. This was necessary because the “divide and conquer” tactic was important in the upper class continuing to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. If “white and black” people (who worked in the fields together before this tactic was employed) were unified in their dislike of the exploitation that the upper class took advantage of, then the Rich would be in jeopardy of losing both control and status. Therefore they concocted this way to keep them separate. Give one group power over another and make them “feel” that they are better and you never have to worry about them unifying to threaten the minority of rich people. The term “cracker” was also coined by upper class white people who needed it to be clear that they were better than the slave drivers that they employed to “crack” the whip on the backs of slaves.
        So although you seem well meaning, there are just a few things you don’t understand. That is not your fault. And I don’t expect you to change how you feel. I just want you to at least TRY to understand that when we call the white people racist who IN FACT hate black people because of the tradition of hating us, it is not because we benefit. It is because it is what we EXPERIENCE. The sane black people KNOW that the majority of white people are not racist. But we also know that there are too many who still are…and many of them are in positions of power! Although there is a group of black people who hate white people …very very few of them are in a position to effect the lives of any significant number of white people. Hate over skin color is DUMB regardless of which side it comes from.

      • Melanie

        I do believe that you are right in some ways. There is/ has been a conditioning of white people since slavery and then again after it was abolished.

        It is interesting that the diversity “training”, the political correctness, that is constantly pushed on white people, seems to have kept focus on the difference in skin color, behavior, and culture. It is not making things better, all it is doing is constantly reaffirming that all white people should feel guilty and all black people should feel entitled. It is causing the rifts to stay open. Sad really!

        As for the term “crack the whip” you are actually not right about that one. “Cracker” is an old term that was used primarily in the South, especially in Georgia and Florida, to poor whites and hill dwellers. Cattle driving was one of their main occupations, the “Crack” of the Cattle,not slave whip (rarely did they own slaves, and were as poor as any slave) was from where they got their name.

        “Although there is a group of black people who hate white people …very very few of them are in a position to effect the lives of any significant number of white people.”

        Heres the problem with that logic: Although those blacks who hate white are not in a “position to effect white people” their numbers can and will grow quickly. Hate is easily spread and because the government is so caught up in teaching white people “diversity” and “equality” they are not doing the same for those black people. So in reality it does and will continue to affect the lives of white people.

        Hate over skin color is stupid I agree completely but I agree to that not because I have residual guilt from slavery or because the government tells me thats how it should be. I agree because (and I grew up in a town with NO black people at all and didn’t meet a black person in real life until I was around 10yrs) I see that people are people, they are poor, rich, happy, sad, educated, uneducated, hard working, lazy, they are what they make of themselves not what their skin color is.

      • Andre Bonds

        I understand your gripe with “diversity” training and such. However I know well over 1000 white people. I have over 350 as friends. I know NOBODY who have ever been through such training. Here is the problem with your logic. If the government is hell bent on teaching diversity and equality they are failing for about 30% of the white population. The alternative to this push from the government is to do “nothing” and just HOPE the group of white people who are racist will just abandon their racial animus and vitriol and begin seeing people of color as equal and loving them as neighbors (as commanded in the bible). Surely you don’t believe after 530 years this will just correct itself do you? Or maybe you believe that it is ok that they feel that way about us. Either way, what the government does and what black people do have absolutely NOTHING to do with they way people feel about black people. Racism is rooted in a tradition of people’s HEARTS. This means logic, fact, or good black people won’t change how they feel.

        Nobody wants white people to feel guilty about slavery except the racist Black people. We just want you all to UNDERSTAND that Slavery and Jim Crow have had a negative effect on the psyche of black people in this country. If families are destroyed and separated, women are raped, men, women, and children are beaten and killed over the course of 400 years, don’t you think the mental condition of that culture will be effected? In fact, the belief was that it would effect us for 400 years AFTER the slavery had ended. It was a plan that has worked almost as well as those who came up with it thought it would. This is not a commentary on white people today. The only problem white people today is many of them believe we should just ignore that slavery happened, we should ignore that racism still exists, and ignore the inequities that still effect us on a daily basis.

        Whenever a racist actually denies a black person an interview just because they have a black name on a resume, or judge gives a black person 3 times the amount of time as a white person or other things like that…the white public says we are either making it up, we are “race baiting”, or we are just cry babies. That is up to and including when we get killed for just walking home from the store (i.e. Trayvon Martin). So, NO…we don’t want you all to feel guilty about slavery or Jim Crow, we just want you all to understand that racism STILL does effect us…and it is NOT because of anything that WE did other than being black.

      • Melanie

        Are you kidding, this diversity “training” is really brain washing. It starts in elementary school and continues into collage. It is in every work place and splashed all over the TV and Internet. Your gripe with white people and racism is moot when black people are just as raciest!
        I am not sure how you can think that white people don’t understand that slavery had a negative effect on black people. You say that you don’t want us to feel guilty for slavery but that we should just UNDERSTAND. Well, there is complete understanding that slavery in any form is/was horrifically wrong and hurt the lives of MANY. There is any entire month dedicated to black history let alone the MANY hours of classroom time spent talking about slavery and the people who helped change it. Yet some how we just don’t understand.

        I recently watched these interviews on the news regarding the use of the word nigger vs. the word cracker. The interviewer went and asked random white people on the streets if they thought is was ok to say the word nigger, using it in the way other black people use it with each other. The resounding answers was a horrified NO. Then they where asked if they thought being called cracker was offensive. The answers, “I would rather hear and be called cracker then hear or say the word nigger. Asked, “do you think being called cracker is raciest”? the answers NO.

        Do you see the problem. When a black person calls a white person cracker its not out of love it is a raciest remark but we have been condition to think that is ok. Its ok for blacks to call blacks nigger but white people cant say it EVER. And its ok for a black person to call us cracker because only white people can be raciest.

        White people are being conditioned.

        Don’t even get me started on Trayvon Martin!!!!!!!!!

        WHERE ARE YOU GETTING THIS 30% OF THE WHITE POPULATION IS STILL RACIEST?????

        I would then say to you that 50% of the black communities are raciest!

        Hate begets Hate. Until we both sides can move on from the color of our skin there will never be resolution! Its really that simple.

      • Andre Bonds

        Melanie, you are missing a few things in your attempt to defend “white” people.

        First, uttering racial epithets does not make a person racist. If it does, you are racist. I don’t necessarily believe you are. But, even if you were, you would not admit it. Anyway, I have white friends who I know LOVE ME (not like me or just tolerate me..but LOVE me) and they have used the N word. That doesn’t make them racist. It makes them “conditioned” by society to use the harshest language possible when passionate about something. What makes a white or black person RACIST is the BELIEF THAT A PERSON’S SKIN COLOR MAKES THEM BETTER THAN THOSE WHO DON’T HAVE THAT SKIN.

        Please show me where black people are denying white people jobs because of their skin, or treatment at hospitals, or entrance to college, or bank loans, or equal justice under the law, or housing in their communities, or the dozens of other instances where white people treat black people like second class citizens. This JUST DOES NOT EXIST in America. In your haste to defend the white race you believe it necessary to indict 50% of black people of racism. Well that is simply not the case. There are a few black people on the fringe like the New Black Panther Party, the Moors and some NOI members who are racist ..that is to say who believe they are better than white people just because of the color of their skin. But, that is less than 2% of blacks. So, if you include those black people who just hate white people because of the actual racism they have experienced then you may get to 15% of black people hate white people. I don’t even think its that high, though. I don’t think it’s that high because there are too many Sambos who are willing to sell out the race in order to be accepted by white people. But that is just my opinion.

        How much time have you spent in black communities across this country? lol. You have nothing other than emotion that tells you 50% of us are racist. As for me …I read Tim Wise. He is an expert on race relations in America. A white man. And after studying it for 20 years, he says 30% of white people in America still feel like white people are better because of their skin color. And they have racial animus against black people. Well I happen to believe Mr. Wise.

        As for the conditioning it is just silly. My son goes to a white school. They spend less than ONE chapter in social studies on slavery AND the civil rights movement COMBINED! Half a chapter on them both? They didn’t teach my son (or the white kids) about Sojouner Truth, John Brown, Willie Lynch, Nat Turner, W.E.B DuBuois, Fredrick Douglas, Malcom X, Medgar Evers, Black Cowboys, Black Indians, Black inventors, the Buffalo Soldiers, The Tuskegee Institute, and too many other things to count in the formation and greatness of this country in which black people contributed. So, please don’t tell me you all are being “conditioned” by the teachings at schools because that is nonsense. With the exception of Malcom (who you probably hate because you know very little about him) and Fredrick Douglas you probably have never heard of those black people I mentioned. But, even if you do, 99% OF KIDS IN AMERICA BLACK OR WHITE do not!
        Are there black people who hate white people…yes. Are their more white people who hate black people…YES! This is because for 500 years white people have been TAUGHT to hate black people. So, although it is much better now than even 30 years ago, please don’t delude yourself into believing that more than 70% of white people in this country have not been able to shake that 500 years of indoctrination. And the fact that you don’t “understand” that this STILL effects us as we speak is what I am talking about when I say you all “don’t understand”.

      • Melanie

        I just have one last thing to say and then I am really quite done on this subject!

        One persons study on how many white people are raciest is voided because it was just one persons opinion.

        Blacks where conditioned for 500 years to hate white people so don’t tell me that the racism is not equal to our own.

        The fact that you think that a white person has never been denied a job, entrance to collage, housing, loans, ext. means you are in complete denial! It may not happen every day because as you said most of America is still white but I personally know people who have had things like this happen. SO YES IT DOES EXIST!

        I know that there are raciest white people I am not denying that. I just believe that they are more rare than what you believe.

      • Andre Bonds

        Melanie, you are saying you know a white person who was denied a job , education, housing, or a loan because a BLACK PERSON LOOKED AT THEIR SKIN COLOR AND DECIDED TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THEM? I have never heard of such! So, if you do know of this, tell that person I apologize, but respectfully it is a piece a sand in the Sahara desert compared to how many times it has happened to black people in the last 50 years. I am confident you CAN’t believe that these are equal.
        Tim Wise is not just one person giving you his opinion. He is an expert on the subject and has 20 years of study on it. He is not just giving opinion. He gives facts that are verifiable. In addition there are at least 20 other experts on the subject who agree with him. But, I thought it necessary to give you the foremost expert who is white as so not to draw a conclusion that the source was just biased because of his color.
        Melanie, I respect your belief, but please understand I have nothing to gain by exaggerating how many racists there are in this country. lol I am just going on what the evidence says. Thanks for the discussion. Take Care.

        There was no such thing as black slavery either, yet you blacks all claim this myth to be true.

      • Frank Black

        it’s about time you lot got over slavery, don’t you think? E evil whiteys have spent the last century giving you reparations and priority to make up for something only a handful of white elites were responsible for. Go to the middle east and ask them for compensation for your slavery, you won’t get a single cent, and the odds are, they will execute on the spot for even daring to make such demand. You blacks don’t know how good you have it in the western world, sadly, most of you seem determined to turn this country into a third world hellhole like you beloved africa.

      • Andre Bonds

        The last century? Civil rights act is less than 50 years old, which is why people like you still exist. In another 100 years, racist white supremacists will be almost extinct. Almost.

      • Frank Black

        Yes but the civil war happened in 1865. That’s well over a century ago since slavery was abolished, and yet the black community is still eaten up about it. The reason white people will be extinct, as you are obviously happy about, is because of white genocide taking place across the west, the white genocide encouraged and aided by the liberal politicians. As I’m sure you are aware, in many areas across america, the white is already extinct. You seem more than happy with this genocide. I bet if the blacks were undergoing the same genocide in africa by evil whitey, you’d be shouting from the rafters about it, though.

      • Andre Bonds

        There is NO State in America where white people are extinct. The crap that you all believe is AMAZING.

        But, your paranoia about white genocide is just because your entire self-esteem is wrapped up in you mistakenly believe you are better than other races because of your skin color.

        If it were possible for whites to procreate with blacks and have us disappear…I would have no problem with it because then you would have this deluded and misguided justification for hating people based on skin color. It is you irrational fear that motivates you. Don’t pretend that everyone is as irrational or cowardly.

        “Saying it to your faces” … my words are a license for your real physical violence. It’s a shame. There might be a peaceful resolution and understanding. I have no ill will to anybody. I just wish that black people depended on merit alone to be accepted, not force of state. (That probably has something to do with the whole tipping mystique.) Politics just doesn’t allow it. You’d have to have some kind of freedom of speech protection … but words would fail you, you’d get frustrated, start breathing hard through your teeth, your violence, my fault.

        That’s a pretty good list of entertainers, AA hires and parasites … put them on an island and we could call it Haiti.

        Not better. Different.

        Experience. I’ve been in Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, Baltimore, … It’s one hell of a losing streak. It could be coincidence.

      • Andre Bonds

        Bob, of course you all are different. It is the reason you all hypocritically hate poor black people but have no such feelings about poor white people who are just as bad on education. Since there are 14 MILLION more poor white people than black people, they should probably be your focus. Instead, the poor black people are your focus simply because they have a different color skin and you can prematurely judge black people by their skin but you can’t do that with people of your own race…smh

      • Bobbala

        I don’t even know any poor black people, let alone hate them. The ones I do know are the highly skilled minority that could have achieved on merit and the ones receiving similar pay without the skill requirement. It can be done. It’s just not common among blacks thus Detroit sinks.
        There should be more poor white people, vastly more as the percentages dictate … at least in the US.

      • Andre Bonds

        So the 76% of us who have succeeded means success among black people is “not common”?

      • Bobbala

        Success on merit is rare as it is not required in most fields for protected groups.

        The NBA has no need of AA because blacks succeed on merit. I do not say this to demean you but to recognize your group’s aptitude. Some races are prone to swim, make them the lifeguards. Use what God gave you.

        Until you do, the legitimately brilliant brain surgeon will never be given due credit. You’re the ones making him look bad by insisting that blacks have a different, lowered standard.

        When I was a kid, I set the difficulty of the video games to the high level. When I could beat it that way, I could beat anybody. Eventually you have to get off the kiddie level to be taken seriously. A lot of black people will go down in flames this way but the few (or many) that don’t would get the respect they keep trying to sue people for.

      • Andre Bonds

        Your logic is simply not logical. Your assumption that most black people have succeeded because of AA would only be valid if you also believed that most white people have succeeded because of nepotism, the good ole boy network, and racial prejudice against everyone who is not white. Is this what you believe? Well guess what , there have been studies that show that just having a BLACK SOUNDING NAME on a resume means a person is half as likely to get an interview.

        Here is another problem with your theory. There are 2 million black owned businesses. Surely you don’t think they get loans because of AA right? In fact, blacks with identical credit scores get loans at a lower rate! Nobody promotes black people to upper management— vice president or higher– of their companies because of AA. There are thousands of them. Even in your example of the surgeon, AA doesn’t fake SAT/ACT scores, MCAT scores, or GPA’s. AA doesn’t overlook surgeons who are killing people. People don’t return to black mechanics, plumbers, AC techs, roofers, locksmiths, hair dressers, nail techs, barbers or the other hundreds of service oriented professions out there just because of AA.
        All AA does is give minorities access to opportunities that they would otherwise not have because of the nepotism and racial prejudice that sill exists in this country. After all, Bush got into an Ivy league school with a C average and a terrible SAT score just because of who his father was. Yet you don’t challenge the entire white race because of the “privilege” many many whites are given…do you?

      • Andre Bonds

        LOL…are you serious? We have overcome dude! We were SLAVES for 400 years. We were treated like less than human for 100 years after that. In less than 3 generations we now have a buying power of 900 billion dollars. That would make us the 16th largest economy in the world if we were our own country. BTW that is almost double the buying power of Hispanic Americans and all Asian Americans COMBINED. So, although we have a long way to go, the MAJORITY of us are successful. Some white people just don’t want that to be the truth, but then don’t want to accept any responsibility in a system that tries to keep black people down,. But,the system can only succeed in keeping about 24% of us in poverty. That will be down to 19% by 2016.

      • Bobbala

        Jewish people are a true numerical minority everywhere in the world, except Israel. They are almost universally despised by 99% of the world. They get hired. Their businesses have clients.

        ” … But,the system can only succeed in keeping about 24% of us in poverty….”

The equivalent amount of money for us in today’s terms would be over 200k per black person in this country. If you gave each of us over 200k (like the Jews got) , we would very soon control as many resources as they do.

        I have been through this already on this page…lol. After I name the countries, you google them and try to see the problems they have. Then you offer those problems in a disparaging manner to try to indicate that the countries are not successful. Well, let me cut your hypocrisy off at that pass. Problems or turmoil in countries do not mean they are unsuccessful. If that were the case, the U.S. would be unsuccessful.

        But, just for giggles, South Africa, Nigeria, and Morocco.

    You’ll see all of this that you describe is cultural, not genetic, not racial. It is cultural, with a large segment of blame falling on government safety nets for encouraging laziness. Why do I say this? Because in Britain they have the same problem, but not with blacks… with WHITES.

      Really? I say this problem stems from cultural influences and bad leaders rather than race and I get voted down? I’d rather you people voting me down trolled me than do that. If you haven’t read Theodore’s book, I encourage you to. If you can find the same behavior described by this teacher in other races from different cultures, then how is the race argument valid?

    honestly i feel, once slavery was over if whites would’ve left Blacks alone and not destroyed everything they built for their selves (Towns, Businesses, school, etc.)in this country and Blacks never would’ve integrated with whites Blacks would have been well off then Blacks are today. Also black slavery is the most inhuman act that has been committed in the history of known civilization since the Holocaust. Blacks have been conditioned over time to be who they are today. stripped of their history and culture and lied too and forced feed christianity to thinking that “God” is white and told the reason they had to be slaves is because it’s in a book they couldn’t read or understand for there self. Then destroy the parents minds of the children you speak of in this essay with drugs, money, guns which we don’t own any manufacturing of.

      Both Whites and Blacks pushed for full societal integration after slavery. If Whites had “left Blacks alone” after slavery, you would have had hundreds of thousands of penniless, illiterate, low-skilled newly-freed slaves halfway across the world from their point of origin. How do you think that would have panned out? Slow down and actually think about it.

      So black slavery was the most “inhuman act since the holocaust”? Considering that the holocaust occurred AFTER black slavery and that millions of whites have also suffered in slavery in Europe and the New World, you should probably update your education before broadcasting your ignorance so proudly.

        Most of the slaves were enslaved and sold by Blacks originally. If not sold to Whites or Arabs they would have been slaves in African villages. Yet slavery is the fault of Whites.

      • Andre Bonds

        Nonsense! So, by your reasoning most blacks in Africa are slaves now! lol Get a grip.

      • ConradCA

        You didn’t read what I said correctly. I just said that the majority of slaves were enslaved by blacks in Africa.

        Not true, but I understand what you are saying. You believe a myth.

      • Bobbala

        White people bought, sold, traded, raped, killed … (fill in the blank) slaves BUT they ended it. Some died to stop it.

        Black people bought, sold, traded, raped, killed … (fill in the blank) slaves and kept on doing it with or without white people. I wish I could stop it in Africa but there just aren’t enough of you know who to do it. The black people of Africa are just unwilling or unable. It really doesn’t matter which. Sorry.

      • Andre Bonds

        Do you also believe in Santa and the Easter Bunny?

      • Bobbala

        Until you accept your defects, you can never fix them. I’m sincerely sorry, my friend. Black people will continue to be rejected and never be able to do anything about it but breathe heavily through their teeth.
        Meanwhile, all kinds of people will try and move into my neighborhood and country. It must be the racism that they crave.

      • Andre Bonds

        I agree 100% Many white people (only white Americans) will never accept us. That is great! It would be tantamount to us wanting to be accepted by the devil. Why would we want that? For the “good and decent” white people whom I love and who love me , I am already accepted. That is enough for me. I will be sure to let my white neighbors know that they shouldn’t accept me and should proceed to try to get me out of the neighborhood…lol. Wait, my community is to diverse with these 2 mixed couples (black husbands – white wives), Panamanians, Chinese, many black families, and many white families. Sorry dude…lol.

      • Melanie

        Andre,

        I get it, your black and so automatically you believe that only white people could be so cruel as to buy and sell slaves.

        But if you could please explain to me HOW you don’t believe that black people SOLD their own people into slavery. And HOW you don’t believe that it still goes on in Africa today.

        Do you read about the SH!T that goes on over there? Black people fighting, raping, killing, and yes ENSLAVING young men. Forcing them to fight for them. Getting them hooked on drugs. Killing their families. This sir is SLAVERY!

      • Andre Bonds

        Melanie, you are late to the party…lol. First, there is nothing you all can teach me about slavery. I have and entire year of study on the subject. I don’t just accept the propaganda given by white people in order to diminish or downplay the role that white people had in the “Transatlantic” slave trade. This slave TRADE (which means Africans ARE CULPABLE ALSO) is the worst atrocity in human history. Portuguese, Spanish, Arab, European, and yes Africans were involved. Here is the NONSENSE that you all believe, that NOONE else except British people believe in this world. Africans JUST LIKE EUROPEANS AND ASIANS took there own people who they conquered in war as slaves and indentured servants. However, Africans did not spread lies that Africans are not humans. Africans did not whip their slaves to death to instill fear. Africans did not chop off slaves feet. Africans did not hate other Africans JUST because of the color of their skin. Africans did not benefit from 400 years of free labor and then not even consider those who performed the labor to be “American”. Africans did not make Jim Crow laws to keep Africans separate from other Africans, and Africans did not create a climate so riddled with hate and fear that 150 years after slavery that 30% this country still hates black people JUST BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN.
        Yes war torn African countries steal, abuse, and indoctrinate young boys for military purposes. But, if you consider that the same as the slavery that went on here in the U.S., you too must believe in the Easter bunny.

      • Melanie

        1 whole year lol.

        “Africans JUST LIKE EUROPEANS AND ASIANS took there own people who they conquered in war as slaves and indentured servants.”

        Africans had there own slaves and indentured servants. Hmmm. But I am sure they loved their slaves and didn’t keep them separate and everyone was treated with compassion. I am sure they didn’t profit from them either. Because only the British and Americans would treat slaves with horrific cruelty.

        30% of this country still hates black people…..that number comes from……?

        I think this is what you are looking for:

        WHITE PEOPLE ENSLAVED THE BLACK RACE!

        But this is what you don’t want to care about or hear:

        WHITE PEOPLE ENDED SLAVERY!

        So there I took responsibility for slavery but I am also going to take responsibility for ending it!

      • Andre Bonds

        Melanie, the Portuguese and other southern European countries, and Most of South American countries ended slavery before the British and English. The only people to have slavery after Britain and U.S. are the Arabs, and some African countries. White people were NOT responsible for the world wide ending of slavery. Don’t delude yourself. White people were some of the LAST people to end it and who else could end British and American slavery BUT WHITE PEOPLE? LOL. The slaves were supposed to end it? Get out of here.

        As for how slaves were treated, America, Britain, and the West Indies treated slaves worse than anyone in the world. But, again…for about the 4th time… We do not want you to feel guilty or accept responsibility for the sins of your fathers. We just want you all to UNDERSTAND AND NOT DEMONIZE US because Jim Crow is less than 2 generations away. My father experienced it. We don’t want you all to deny that slavery and Jim Crow had a PROFOUND effect on the mental health of an entire race of people. Instead, those who still struggle from this cycle of mental dysfunction are looked upon as scum. Those of us who point out that racism still exists are demonized by people who didn’t like us in the first place. So, you taking responsibility for ending slavery means nothing if you still judge black people by the color of our skin. Now, this may not be you personally, but I am positive you know that there are plenty white people who do. And, until you all end this prejudice, this country will continue to be less than its best because we are divided.

      • willbest

        Up until some elite whites in Britain started spouting off the evils of slavery in the late 1600’s nobody on the entire planet had any moral quams about slavery. It was practiced by everybody. Eventually those elites came to power in Britain and because the British Empire encompassed 1/4th the people and landmass of the planet in addition to controlling most the shipping routes they were able to go about eradicating it most places. However slavery was still practiced in parts of Asian and Africa until the mid 1900’s and unofficially continues to this day.

      • Andre Bonds

        What is your point captain obvious?

      • willbest

        Apparently above you. Whites first made slavery immoral, then they ended slavery and forced the non-whites to end it too. How is that not taking responsibility for it.

      • Andre Bonds

        You all deny that you had any role in it first of all. Then you deny that the role it played in African-Americans condition in this country when you all still hate us JUST BECAUSE WE WANTED TO BE FREE. You make Nazi’s take responsibility for the Holocaust but never take responsibility for the 10 TIMES as many Africans that you killed and destroyed through systematic racism, degradation, a rape of self esteem for 400 years. And if you all could make us slaves again here in the states 35% of you would still vote for it!

      • willbest

        Historically speaking nobody denies whites had a role in slavery. They will deny that whites were uniquely to blame for slavery. And they also find the idea that they personally are somehow to blame for it foolish because

        1) They don’t personally owns slaves
        2) it is highly unlikely that their family tree contains somebody that owned a slave seeing as how that was reserved for the historical equivalent of millionaires and billionaires
        3) Odds are good their family wasn’t even in the South let alone oppressing African Americans
        4) Some even worked to end slavery and discrimination

        As for the Nazis, white people don’t make Nazis take responsibility for the Holocaust, history does that. Nearly everybody stopped hunting down and killing Nazis over the Holocaust years ago and if there are any Nazis left to actually take responsibility for it they have one foot in the grave anyway.

        Its curious that you think 35% of us would vote to enslave African Americans. I presume you are just saying that for some sort of dramatic effect. I would be curious about your justification for it? Also, how many African Americans do you think would vote to go South Africa on white america if the African Americans controlled the government?

      • Andre Bonds

        Noone, least of African-Americans says that white people are uniquely to blame for the slave TRADE. What we are saying is IN AMERICA white people are WHOLELLY and Fully to blame for slavery. In addition they perpetuated lies, misinformation, half truths, and indoctrination of many generations that led to SYSTEMATIC RACIST beliefs and attitudes that still remain in play today for many white Americans. We also don’t blame this generation of white people for slavery. What we call attention to is the racist and/or prejudice that many whites are still plagued with as a result of the generational indoctrination that calls for hate of a people who never even asked to be here Although we had the audacity to want to be free and equal we weren’t considered (and still aren’t). Surely this is obvious by just reading the replies to me on this post.?

        Couple of quick points. 1) Slavery was not just in the south. 2)Slaves were not just owned by the rich. Middle class farmers and middle class business men and politicians (black and white) also owned slaves. 3) This is not an indictment of all white people. In fact, it is not even about most white people. This is about the minority group who choose to hold on to the disease of racial animus as if it a fuel that helps them navigate this life.

        You are correct about the exaggeration of 35%. Obviously I would have no idea how many would vote to reinstate slavery. But, considering the beliefs of most red states, the extreme hate that some have for black people, and the greed of people who would love free labor I would guess there are more than 20% who would vote for it. How many would you say?

      • willbest

        Yes the anonymity on the internet brings out the stupid in people. But there is a big difference between wanting to discriminate against blacks, which *might* be economically in the best interest of a working class white (though not the employer), and enslaving them which if it is economically viable would only be so for the super wealthy and businesses to the detriment of working class whites. Although, I don’t think it would be economically viable because because its cheaper to just pay somebody min. wage than pay for their shelter, food, clothing, basic medical and the staff to shall we say keep them in line.

        If I were to hazard a guess at how many whites want to bring back slavery it would probably be somewhere around 1.5%, most of those would be idiotic 18-25 year olds that haven’t grown up yet and are doing it more because they think it would be funny.

      • Andre Bonds

        So, you don’t think that the vast majority of severe racist
