By the same token if it weren't for the Berbers and Julius Ceaser you Anglo Saxon males would be living in the Dark Ages practising cannibalism and human sacrifice.

If it weren't for black people, maybe white folks wouldn't have realized how ugly, pale and colorless their skin is. Maybe so many lives wouldn't have been lost to sun cancer while so many whites try to get as dark as they can only to imitate something they hate. Go back to your little hole. I'll be whatever name you want to call me, so go ahead peaches!

A lot of truth to what you say, including how racists the blacks are. The most racists culture on earth.

the biggest hurdle all blacks face is the image they see in the morning every day when they look in the mirror.

I thought I was the only one in that bracket that thought like that also. I have been searching for years to find some one who can say what needed to be said years earlier. I want to find a network with other African American women who can offer words of encouragement instead of discouragement. Thanks for the article.

Ladyjeff, cares

Oh and I just SUPPOSE the QUALIFIED people are whites right? LOL. See I just can't stand stupid whites like this one..Hell.. I have been to places trying to do business and the so called QUALIFIED whites don't know jack... ask them a question and they can't answer it.. and all through college whites cheat like hell. You whites always want the easiest way out of anything. You don't study hard, you cheat and you are UNQUALIFIED for jobs but you still get jobs just because you are white. So i wish you white boys would stop crying and whining. I get so tried of you whites.
White boys and gals whine and cry because they want privilege. You see, black gal, you can only be qualified if you are white. When it comes to affirmative action for blacks, they say that the best qualified should get the job. But, when the best qualified Asian is hired by a US university engineering department through a H1B visa, they complain that he or she is indentured with low pay and in no way can be highly qualified compared to the white applicants..so they say abolish H1Bs...American jobs for Americans or precisely American jobs for white Americans or whites from anywhere. Why whites from anywhere? 7,000 of these work visas are give to mostly whites to pursue acting career in Hollywood. Poppy Montgomerry of Without a Trace came through this visa. They are displacing American actors, no doubt, and yes both black and white. But, who cares for these racis white Americans and racist anti-immigrant groups such as FAIR and CIS only thing that matters is these immigratns are whites, and who cares if they displace Americans as long as the displacers happen to be white. However, let the situation change and let us see a large number of Indian actors show up, you will get these racist folks to rant and rave like they do regarding IT professionals and foreign university professors. Racist scum one and all!!

Is America racist? Some people think it is of the past. I dont think so. Let us take the example of skilled immigrants (h1Bs) as we call them. Of the 65,000 work visas, 35,000 go to IT people, who are mostly from Asia while the other 30,000 go to other professions. About 7,000 of the 30,000 go to Hollywood to bring in actors from abroad. Today's Washington examiner has a story on these actors..most of them are from the UK and most of them are white. However, while we hear complaints about the computer programmers taking jobs from Americans, no one talks about the fact that white foreigners are being hired at the expense of minorities and even whites here in Amrica. There are a lot more unemployed actors than computer professionals in the US. In particular, Asian American men are lacking in movies, sitcoms, etc...yet no one makes any noise of foreigners being hired. Why? Because in the film industry the foreigners coming in happen to be white, and in the computer industry they happen to be, well, for a lack of better term, non-white. Racism is alive and well in America. Any questions?
Not really. I'm just impressed that your various decks of race cards come with all that trivia printed on them. Actors/sitcoms? Man get a life!

Racism exists. It is evident through all of the responses on this article. Anyone who denies this is completely blind, deaf, and dumb. The fact that as a country we still have affirm action programs designed to "help" minorities excel, proves that there is still a serious racial problem in this "Land of the Free". For those who deny it, get it together and do not comment on something that you do not understand. Read "White Privilege" by Peggy McIntosh, and get your heads out of the sand. Stop pretending like Black people have not received the lowest end of the totem poles for years. Remember the institution of slavery folks? Those mindsets, prejudices, and societal practices still persist. Get some knowledge.
