No problem for Holder. Obama. Thomas. The NBA. The NFL. Denzel. Doctors. Lawyers. Military careerists. Government employees.

Maybe the problem isn't skin color after all.

How does it feel to be white and know you will never go any higher than middle class in a country built for you?

Shut up and ponder on the man's question. Part of the problem is you can't pay attention!

It has been using the same comeback for 9 years in this forum. Especially when I pound it with a question like that and it has no answer for.

LMAO! I find it amazing that these "superior" black gods and kings can't find anything else to discuss on their "black" forum, other than a WHITE guy that gets under their thin frail skin like a tick and causes them temper-tantrum inducing emotional trauma.
What a bunch of sissies you black boys are......gossiping like a couple of wash-women, down at the river.

smh

Answer the question how do you personally feel knowing you will never go any higher than middle class in a country built for you? I have never been enslaved or oppressed so I couldn't tell you how that feels.

You gonna answer or dance around it?

That's how sissy black boys are. They won't answer a question, but they go into a spamming frenzy and throw temper tantrums when THEY don't get answered....lol.
I personally refuse to answer their questions JUST to see them spam it forty times the same thread, and then follow me all over the forum, asking in threads that have nothing to do with the question.

And by the way, they ARE a monolith.....they ALL do that stupid shizzit.

What??.. the study shows, as the Hopkins scholar noted, that white privilege is indeed a real phenomenon. Even though the white guys have higher rates of drunkenness/drug habits and similar criminal history, they still have a markedly easier time than blacks in finding work. Obama and black NFL players don't change these facts, really, what type of reasoning is that? Im curious, if not race (as the study shows), what do you feel is the issue?
