By any objective standard America has reached racial equality. minorities can achieve any goal they set for them selves in America.

There are a group of race pimps that keep promoting the idea that there is large scale in equalities in justice in this country but that concept is incorrect.

Race pimps like al "notso" sharpton, NAACP the congressional black caucus, aclu, Jessie fillmyupocketsfirst Jackson,maxine waters and others get rich promoting the race issue.

I would ask al, jess the naacp, the congressional black caucus to define when they think racial equality will be reached?

what quota, number what standard how will the rest of us on this planet be able to step back and say oh yes everyone is equal now.

Because based on what I see in society some races are more equal or numerically superior in numbers of representatives in those fields.

For example sports has a high number of black reproesentatives, does this mean we should have affirmative action programs to encourage more white athletics to enter those sports programs.

How about drug dealers, murder, prison popuations and other criminal enterprises ? blacks are far more likely to carry a gun and shoot up a chunkys movie theater than are the white or wetback populations of America, so should whites be allowed to go to prisons shoot up movie houses in larger numbers to balance out the race numbers??......

tell us al and Naacp, when do America reach equality or do we all have to speak ebonics or rob gas stations at gun point to achieve equality?????

I for one don't want to join the new black nosepicking panthers or the congressional n word caucus just so some black people feel equal

Couldn't agree more. Also, I truly believe those "race pimps" you mentioned know deep down that equality on an objective level has been reached but would like to take it a step further and achieve unequal and better treatment than whites and other races. Lastly, I find it interesting that no other race in our country cries foul and plays the race card as much as SOME African Americans do. Emphasis on the word some. I have met and am friends with many great people including many African Americans. A couple bad apples should not ruin it for the majority of the good people of all races in our country.

The state of michigan should have been overseeing this city and others all along decades ago. This is prime example of what happens when counties and cities run things like good ' ole boy mentality. Money is misused, friends with no real integrity r hired as in wayne county and airport scandal. If michigan taxes wereoverseen and used logically there would be money for schools improvements etc. Instead money is wasted on ridiculoys salaries perks and retirements etc. The state should have had final say on approval decades ago.the sterling heights police overtime fraud was another good example of greed there and elsewhere. State oversight is needed when local boards and commissioners do not catch corruption until it is to late as in Detroit and others locales in michigan.squandering money for high compensation salaries etc. Is not in taxpayers best interest. Later after money is wasted as in wayne county, they want millage increase for misappropriation of funds. Please!!

Look to the Lithuanians for a positive social example.

Lithuanians have our national museum of history and culture on the west side of Chicago and we are proud of our historical achievements through out the world.

We don't need a Lithuanian history month to promote our nationality or ethic pride we are proud of our contribution to every nation we have lived in and improved by our hard work and presents. no Lithuanian entertainment network needed to promote our ethic pride.

We don't kill our own people with guns and drugs as the blacks do, we don't allow our children drop out of school or encourage our daughters to become welfare queens.

we have no race or "ethnic origin" pimps like Jessie"fillmypocketsfirst " Jackson or al notso Sharpton ,Maxine waters,.

We have Never have needed a "NAALP" or aclu to defend us we defend our selves proudly.

Never needed or wanted a congressional Lithuanian caucus to speak for us or look out for us cause we looked out for our selves.

I would encourage blacks to visit the Lithuanian museum of history and culture on the west side of Chicago were there is no drug gangs or shooting going on and learn first hand how to be a great proud citizen of your own clean safe neighborhood once you clean it up , the city or the country in which you live.

Black have depended on others to run interference for them for too long. Blacks fail to see those who pretend to represent black interest are all getting rich but the blacks lifes or quality of life never improve why is that??

Cause being a black race pimp is a lucrative national business in America, exploit blacks and democrats stay in office for ever but life in the hood just never changes...

Those race pimps are using you. Time to stand up for your self.

But alas and alack blacks don't have computers or bother to read newspapers so they will never read this........

Hey there are great receipts for poppy seed cake and crullers at the Museum and you can pick up great polka dance steps there too.
