The fact that a majority of the failed mortgages in recent times were given to minorities by virtue of their race is not the doing of anyone participating in this forum.<quoted text>
Sorry Cabin I forgot; bringing race up is a privilege only entitled to conservative whites when they need it to blame the failed US economy on a group of people, as Jeff did after he was complaining about the issue; this is called glaring hypocrisy!! Fact is the truth never changes and if I discussed race as much as you and some others one trick pony blame game Obama, and minorities for every problem in America I would agree with you!
Sorry being married to a bi- racial women does not automatically qualify you as culturally competent. I question you academics in regard to the issue. I rarely mention race but the fact is the hyper reaction here tells me that some are pretty defensive- It gets old to only hear, "I did not own slaves" This is America move on...all the cliches do nothing to educate yourself on the real issues.
And mentioning that fact does not make one racist.
Race continues to be an issue because folks like yourself (and those responsible for legislating that preference be given to those deemed 'minorities') want it to be.
Some of us truly do prefer to be color blind.
And some of us, it appears, want to continue to milk it.
