Since the Civil Rights movement nearly a half century ago, blacks have made a continuing series of demands from white people, and white people have bent every rule in the book to satisfy their demands.

In the 1960s, white people put in place laws to remove race as a consideration for anything in America. Blacks were free to achieve anything they could. Whites then put in place “helping hand” and “affirmative action” programs to assist blacks into the mainstream. Although it violated the Civil Rights Acts, whites then added “quotas,” based on race, for blacks in every facet of American life. Whites then added “proportionality” to these quotas, insuring blacks of participation in the mainstream at the very least in proportion to their population. Finally, whites set up a politically correct system to prevent any criticism of anything blacks do or say. All of these protections and privileges have now been in place for nearly half a century. Black people have not had to earn anything -- it has all been given to them by white people. It can hardly be any better for black people any place in the world.

All of this has been acceptable to mainstream America. However, it has become more than noticeable that black people have not only refused to earn their way into the mainstream, but they are continuing to demand more and more retribution. The concept of “systemic racism” has been adopted in order to support a continuing demand for preferences-- as long as white people are the dominate force in America, black people are being abused.“Whiteness” studies have been put in place in most of our elite universities. These studies are designed to find ways to eliminate the white race in America.” In addition, it has become quite clear that black people have developed an in-your-face-white-people mentality that promises to permanently balkanize them. They have even adopted the African culture instead of the white culture that founded and built this great country, and who have tried very hard to encourage blacks to enter the mainstream. However, the actions of the blacks seem to be intentionally designed to keep themselves from becoming part of mainstream America.

I suppose if you see everything from a race aspect like a racist does then that would seem true.

Yeah I do see it from a race aspect their where only three races here for a long time. Natives were killed off. Black and whites were separated in most of the country. I give white people credit for some aspects of America but not all. AA numbers are increasing in college that's a great thing. 20 years from now their will be AA business centers with those college degrees.

the forum is dominated by some insecure whites that feel the need to air out their frustrations sometimes. It is just more or less comical just like the article itself. All the blacks that studied with me in college in ny graduated and that's all i can say to this.

"Since 2004, American universities have used a six-year standard to measure graduation rates; but even with the extended time, African-Americans still lag in obtaining degrees. Only 43 percent of African-Americans who enter college graduate - 20 percent lower than the rate for whites. And for black men its more alarming, with only 36 percent who enter finishing college."

Next we will hear about how 'racist' the leftist universities have become...lol

You fail to realize why the drop-out rate is high.
"Seventy percent of students who drop out cite lack of finances"
I know a lot of black students at my university who drop out not because they want to, but because they have no money to be in school.
