Let's keep it funky.

Us black men have been making excuses for years and we have blamed our irresponsible bum behavior on living in a white racist society where blacks don't have an equal opportunity to excel.

Well,that's obviously no longer the case now that Barack Obama(a man of color)is president.

The United States of America is predominately white,over 70%,so that means that the majority of the voters were white who voted for Obama which tells us that our society is no longer racist.

There is still racism that exist of course,I mean,that will always be the case,but anytime a black,mixed,biracial man was elected into office over a white man in a country that's 70% "white" obviously tells you that this country can't be all that racist.

So that means we have and had before Obama won an equal opportunity to excel in this society.

Noones stopping us from getting an education,going to college,and getting a well paying job to support of families,black men.

You can't blame the white man for you not being able to find a job or not being able to get an education because it's all here for us now to take full advantage of.

That's all I wanted to say.

Im not turning on my folks but i'm tired of brothas making excuses.The white man has done alot of dirty shizz but how long are we going to blame the white man for our failures???

Slavery has had a major effect on the lives of African Americans but our ancestors went through all that so that we can have a better life and opportunity to be something.

That was over 200 years ago now.

It's time to move on.

Im just keeping it real my brothas and sistahs.

Much Love And Respect.

We've never had excuses. Our reasons just tend to sound that way, when your on the outside looking in, that assumption is always gonna cloud a persons judgement.

Thank God for the ones doing the right thing and taking care of business!

Why would you tell a white man that they have nomore excuse not to succeed when most of them do???

That doesn't make sence.

It's been alot of us black folk who have been pointing the finger and playing the blame game,blaming the white man for our stupid shizz.

Im not taking up for them or minimizing the pain they've caused us but it's time to stop making excuses and for us to get up off our asses,stop sitting home funking and having 5 babies a year,stop depending on the government,and get a dam job.

That's all i'm saying.

This blaming the white man for being unemployed is just pathetic,old,and triffling at this point.

Racism will be always there. It just proves that the intelligent person who tries hard can over come every racism.

Speak for your damn self! I know plenty of successful black people who are not out there popping out babies and sitting on welfare. Unemployment right now is at it all time to high and it's not just blacks but whites too who are suffering. There are millions of people across the US who did everything the right way as far as getting an education and then getting a career but are finding themselves laid off after loyally working for these companies for years with no benefits and Pensions worth pennies for every dollar. And despite their situations according to you, only white people have a right to complain because this country has finally elected it's first Black President?! Racism, Bigotry and a failing Economy is not resolved overnight. And as Obama has stated we can make a change and it will not be easy but it definitely will not happen if we don't work together, emphatize and help each other.

We have equal opportunity that the social class you live in is able to provide.

No excuse not to succeed? You're right but what you want to acienve to be sussessful should be realistic.

We can get as far as whites that live in the same social class as us. Poor people of all race will never make as far as people living in America's upper-middle class.

American society is not racist. Nope. The Westerin world would always be racist.

hmm, glass factories like the one I work at that makes windows and doors for americans are shuting down cause of our economy. I've watched over 2000 white people get laid off in the last 2 weeks.

it all comes down to hard work and thats how you get a job and keep one. I know plenty of black kids with 2 jobs, obviously if they can get 2 jobs then theres jobs for other blacks.

Well, I gotta go to sleep and wake up fresh tomorrow to bust my ass at work or I'll get my asian ass laid off

Thank you! I don't know why people are all of a sudden acting like it's gone. Yes, we have made wonderful strides (Barack Obama), but as you can see that even after his election, there are still many who will never, ever accept him. We have a long way to go.

Thank you! People want to live in a fantasy world as though everyone's holding hands singing, "Kum by Yah." Racism is so woven into the fabric of America and it won't go away overnight. Yes, people of all races voted for Obama. We are moving the right direction, but excuses? Please. People act as though our struggles were conceived in our minds - like it didn't happen. It did and it still does. Some of these unenlightened black people need to remember that when they're pulled over.

Ummmm....why can't people tthink logically and use the common sense anymore??
I'm so tired of having to explain things that are apparent to grown ass adults.

Who the hell do you think I was talking about??
I did not say all black men and women live off welfare,nor did I say there wasn't any successful black folk who have jobs and take care of themselves and their family.

Only a retard would be stpid enough to think such a thing and i'm not one.

Secondly,i'm working part time while inn college and own real estate so I don't fit into that catergory pow.

And i'm very informed about welfare unemployment and it's statistics.There are more whites on welfare than blacks and more unemployed but only because there are more than them.However,there is a higher percentage f us who are unemployed and living off the governement.

If it doesn't apply let it fly.

This is kind of off topic but i'll respond anyway by saying the statistics for black men who have careers aren't too good.

And when you say "people" do you mean "black people"???

You couldn't have.

Now,don't make yourself look like a dam fool putting words in my mouth.

According to me????

I never said white folk had a right to complain but he we go as usual redirecting the subject to white folk instead of focusing on our flaws and where we need to make corrections.

And again,this is off topic.I'm talking about black folk being responsible and how they need to stop making excuses and blaming the white man for their failures.They need to be responsible for their own actions and stop pointing the finger.Because the white man isn't the cause of black brothas sitting on the corner snatching old lady pocket books,saling drugs,and killing their own brothas,and abandoning their children.

This is the point I was trying to make.

The white man didn't do shizz,this is your own doing.

Accept it,change this,and move on.

We have to remember though that there will still be racists out there...there will still be people that try to discriminate and having a black president could actually make them react worst.

Obama just shows you that you can still succeed even when people try to hold you down. Good posts CF.

Prejudice people will always exist. And yes, they may end up being the reason you might not get hired for a job that you know you're qualified for.

However, giving up and not trying is no longer acceptable. Black people can no longer say the man is keeping them down. They're keeping themselves down.
