In 2008 there shouldn't be no race issues. They should be able to have a better life for the well being oftheir families.

Be is that blacks men are scarce on campuses is a fact but to what extent is debatable. For instance in my nursing class of 19 there is only 2 black men. The thing that should be done is not argue about stats or who is right or wrong but rather take a look at the situations of black america and figure out why we are underrepresented in this area.

Tis simple when you stop and look at it, the races simply do not like each other. Why else would the animosity continue for over 145 years, and it still rages on. I can take each individual on his or her own merits, but there are still many of those who just won't do that.................on BOTH sides, not just one, hence, the War continues.

First of all, I definately have a life. Secondly, I highly doubt that you, and a lot of those posting here, are "African Americans." Were you born here? Your parents? Then guess what, you're AMERICAN, just like me, you just happen to be black, where as I am white. Do you see us white folks getting all fancy with our ancestry and what you address us as? I don't expect you to address me as an English, Scotch, Dutch, Slovokian, Mongolian American, so unless you were born in Africa, you are an American...
And unfortunately what we hear and read justifies why we feel the way we do. I don't know about where you live, but where I live, 95% of the crime here is black on black. Everytime they identify a suspect on the news for a murder, robbery, home invasion, or car jacking, the suspect is a black male. You sterotype yourselves...You don't like the way the people and/or the media portrays you, then encourage your "brothers" to stop commiting crimes and do something postive for your community instead...
First of all you do need to get a life . it seems like everything you feel that you need to say is ignnorant. the only reason you see black people on the news it because people like you like to expose us in every negative way that you can. I'M probably drifting off the subject but someone needs to educate you because it seem like you don't know what you talking about everytime you turn on the tv they want to expose a black man they would show everyone his picture anbd explain detail to detail what they did but as for someone white all you hear is secondary information like teacher slept eith student or tot mom or woman stab daughter 100 times you dont here white or caucasian therefore all you going to notice is the black man picture you will Continuously see. im not saying all black people are innocent but you need to get your facts right mister how bout 72 percent of white men kill their families and themselves aswell that's an everyday issue that no one want to discuss. how bout percentage of white sex offrenders which is 73.9 percent and blacks are 22.8 and others is 12.2. Thats why goverment put all their money into locking up drug dealers then sex offenders who prey off little girls and boys 'unless its a white woman' because its just another tactic to make a black men look bad.

Sorry son, but what he said, makes a lot of sense, and what's more, I think you know it. Oh, and don't holler 'racism' again, I mean, I would hope that, that is not all you know how to do! I know black people don't want to belong to the white peoples society, they actually want to be separate from them, for they are every bit as biased as any white person. Now, don't lie about it, it's true, and you know it!

The War between the States still rages, and why, because it takes BOTH sides to make harmony work!
Any fool can see that, however, there are far too many people who want to be politically correct, and THAT, just ain't gonna work! The White people participated in slavery, and that's the way it was, but it isn't done today, times and people must move on, and that's the way it is, move on, and learn from the past, learn from it's failures and correct them, if you don't, then failure is going to follow, and the hatred that people thought was supposed to die, won't!
Forcing people to get along, will NOT work, it's that simple! Oh sure, you can mandate laws, and make hate illegal, but you cannot make a law that changes the heart or ideals. People have to WANT to change, you cannot MAKE them change. So, before you spout off about white people not doing what is right, the blacks have an obligation to do the same thing, for only in that way, will the two races get along! Making Whites 'bow' down to blacks, will only prolong the agony and hate, the blacks have to realize that the past only lives as long as you want it to. What happened 145 years ago, happened, and there is nothing that can be done about that, but this is now, so learn from that, and move on, if you don't, then the past still lives, and absolutely nothing will be accomplished to have the two races live together without hating each other. Again, it takes BOTH sides to bring about the peace everyone wants and deserves. Agitators on BOTH sides keep the old flame burning, you know it, and I know it, and unless there are some more intelligent heads thrown together to make things work, then the agitators win, and the hate will continue.

I agree with your words. People have to want change for themselves first, not because they will be punished if they do not...

It's my opinion that we're dealing with two completely separate cultures. The forced assimilation didn't work, not with the Indians or the blacks. To achieve equality, maybe harmony, but equality, each culture must be allowed to 'live' it's life, without a stigma attached if you don't conform. The business world is where we all 'work' together, private lives should be unstructured, non-conforming, cultural. If you can come home, kick off your shoes and live 'your' life, the world will look a lot less demanding. Any chance of that?
