Unite Rochester: Time for Latinos to join the discussion

I started getting involved in Rochester community issues 45 years ago. Throughout all these years, I have developed the perception that, in general, the Rochester area establishment deals with social issues by creating impressive blue-ribbon committees to conduct studies.

@how itis: White people are always making the comment; "playing the race card". However; America is a racist country. And racism is alive, well and thriving in these United States. Racism is the cancer that has run through the blood of American society since Europeans first landed on these shores. And since that beginning America and Americans have invested much in denying that fact. This denial has kept this country sick with the issue of race. The truth most come out, because without it there can be no healing.

It's all related to the fact that people have a very long memory for when certain ethnic/religious groups act violently or stupidly.
I think we all give everyone a chance to be "normal" when we interact with ANYONE.
the telltale giveaway is when people fall in to a sterotypical behavior that is expected/perceived.

first impressions mean a lot.

you act like or behave like a dope or a racist, what would you expect people to UNDERSTAND you to be?

And before any ignorant cracker show up and dispute my comments, I work, my kids are educated, I live in a nice neighborhood and have a nice house, I pay my bills on time, and got a nice automobile. Even us educated and hard working blacks can see racism!

You should be able to see racism because you(blacks) are the biggest racist on two feet. If you won't admit it then you are a fool and blind to the facts. Look at what you posted Zippy, IE: the slur "crackers", goes to show what I said is true and that you are either a closet racist or an out and out liar. Better luck next time with the poor me the system kept me down spin.
