Rochester is at a tipping point on issues of race

Jun 30, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

The Unite Rochester findings confirmed what many of us in our community have known for years: There are serious disparities in our community between white people and people of color.

Sounds to me like another session brainstorming how to tax whites so blacks can have more free stuff

Sucks to be poor in America.
If the lady had been white, would you have shared this story? Or did you just make it up out of spite?

All I can say is that it's a good thing that Topix doesn't represent the real world.
I live in the city and work, socialize and shop with all different kinds of people every day.
If you live in fear or distrust of people that are different than you are, you probably won't make it in this world 5 or 10 years from now.
America is an ethnic mixture, always has been and always will be.
You have to adapt and accept, or isolate yourself in your own sad world.
There will always those you who should avoid and they can be any color, urban or rural and may be those who you least suspect of being a threat to you.

I agree with you 100%. Topix represents ignorance and hate! That's why I am reducing my time here.

Why; because they have admitted to racial disparity. A truth already known by us all, but rarely admitted or acknowledged. The truth is healing; it's time overdue for that healing.

It seems to me that you are off the topic of discussion. This is the real world. I know and understand that it's hard to face the truth about the racial inequality in America; an inequality that has been passed on from generation to generation. I understand that it's hard to admit that the disparities in education, the labor force, housing, the justice system, etc, etc, are a blow to your mindset and your beliefs. I know it's hard to admit that blacks never had a eqaul playing field and because of that very fact, their ability to compete was severely disabled. It's time for truth and it's time for healing.

Biased; why?; because it's finally telling the truth?. Or does it prove that your illusion of some sort of superiority is a fallacy induced and manufactured by your white forefathers, has suddenly received a crack in its foundation. And does it also proves that, whites in this country were and are receiving advantages, not equated to blacks. That is being truthful; which is something you and all Americans already know, but find hard to admit.

Come toi think of it, the Congressional White caucus is strangely MIA, alo.
Not to mention:
The white teachers union
the white miss America pageant
the united cracker college fund,
the white entertainment channel,
....etc., etc., etc,....
And before you throw down the lame and ridiculous "everything is for whites including the other 11 months",
...tell me what whites are really allowed to exclude blacks from....without initiating another frivolous discrimination lawsuit....

How come nobody ever talks about reparations for slavery ? Would that solve the problem ? The D and C solutions are the same ole vague solutions that have been floating around since the 70s. Or is there no problem ? Just white people complaining about blacks ?

Rhonda you dumb........your side is the "ignorance and hate"
My side is me and other bringing the hatred right back to you and your racist whites on here that would be talking your racist poop regardless if we were or not.

Go back to review the early days of the rochester topix, and you will see how it was the whites and the suburban whites to be more correct that started and went on and on all on their own with their racist comments. Only after we came on and gave it right back to you, is when you now see a problem with it.

I know that every other group of people, that has been a victim of Americas injustice, has received some sort of reparations. However; in order for one to receive any sort of reparations the perpetraters would have to admit to the crime against humanity, or be charged and found guilty of this crime. As we have seen America has no intentions of admitting to this crime. In fact in August of 2001 at a United Nations World Conference Against Racism the delegation from the United States walked out of that conference because the conference declared American Chattel Slavery as a crime against humanity; so you see America has no intention, and refuse to acknowledge their crime.

If you whites don't like living here with blacks that you brought here, then maybe you should go back to Germany or Poland without us??

I agree with you 101%.

I think blacks would even start a fund and pay for these racist crackers to return to their own home country.
