Oh please! The power of minority is not regulated in sports or entertainment yet minorities do very well.

If minorities want equality, get in line with society. It is no coincidence that blacks economic power is lower than that of other minorities. Hispanic, Asians do way better than blacks. Why?

You see Hispanics unemployment is much lower than blacks. They have demonstrated a "will do" attitude and therefore have done better than blacks. And Asians are in a class by themselves, surpassing whites per capita.

What we have is a breakdown in the black community. The blacks allowed themselves to be taken care of by the Democratic party which has only made many of them dependent on elections to get taken care of. I work with many blacks that stand on there own. The only difference is the color of their skin, not the quality of their work, behavior, and interaction.

What I would suggest is instead of claiming racism and throwing up your hands, take charge of the situation and achieve. Democrats, Sharpton and Jackson have profited off the black race for far too long. They don't represent you, they've made millions at your expense.

Ha! Just look at what the stains accomplish when they have the joint to themselves: Detroit. Q:Equal? A: Detroit. Q: Equal? A: Monrovia, Liberia. When the whites of South Africa gave power to the ANC, what did they do with their nuclear weapons?
Yep.
Hey stain, take your racist garbage to a blacks' board. You've got nothing for us here except laughing at your stupidity revealing discussion of polar bears in Antarctica, no dogs in space, and LBJ in JFK's limo in Dallas.

Please put away the tired old race card. Barak Obama has been elected President twice proving that ALL positions are open to Blacks in this nation. Blacks hurt themselves by placing very little emphasis on education and great over emphasis on immediate gratification. All other groups (Asians, Hispanics, Creoles) do better than Blacks, thus is racism based on skin color almost a thing of the long ago Southern Plantations.

In fact, Blacks are so ignorant of history they have completely forgotten that the Republicans set them free and that Democrats were the original Klu Klux Klan and rather than accept personal responsibility under Republicans, Blacks are now back on the Democrat Plantation just as in the days of Antebellum Slavery.

I wish it were as easy as you make it sound that a "mixed race" POTUS equates to masses of African Americans getting full time employment, gaining multimillion dollar contracts, getting unprecedented bank loans to start businesses, etc. Unfortunately, the election of Obama twice has done none of those things for the" majority" of Black people despite his two terms.

WallStreet is doing fine, companies are making record profits WITHOUT hiring masses of Black people. Please explain that?
It's a misnomer to believe electing a Black (or in the case of Obama, mixed) person will magically change the hearts and minds of the "job creators" and set out to hire more Black people (not minority..that phrase has been co- opted by others and is not exclusively a Black American description anymore) who are the highest unemployed group in America.

That's so true Oliver.

Blacks place no emphasis on education and then are upset when no one hires them. They make NO connection between education and jobs.

In fact, successful Blacks like Walter Williams, Herman Cain or Clarence Thomas are attacked while race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson attract huge followings.

So instead of pointing out the problem with no solution(s), explain why blacks have done very poorly with the half black President.

It is simple. Hard work. Simple but not easy. The problem with Blacks is they want immediate gratification. Jobs are not food stamps. You have to work, work and work some more.

Probably the same reason why the libs now refer to Oblamocare as the ACA. Failure is an orphan!

Blacks also do not think about the consequence of committing crimes and the records that follow. And, instead of Obama addressing the true issues, he for example, wants felons to be hired into positions where they are not appropriate, like the Obamacare workers and your personal information. Just another reason why Obamacare will fail.

Women are the largest faction of diversity, a national victim cult, receiving Affirmative Action.

As such women are not a minority, nor is the diversity collective a minority. Referring to diversity people as minorities is an ignorant deception.

Hoodlums, welfare blacks, and thugs don't put an emphasis on schooling! Make the distinction between" them" and most African Americans who are not those things listed, that way no one will mistake you for being a bigoted racist! Make sense?
And eventhough you don't like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, they both are considered" successful" regardless of how they twisted yt's arm to get the checks deposited. In America, the means justifies the ends $$$

I will, if you'll explain why they started an economic decline during Bush's last two years in office.

Hard work is the answer, right? You mean the back breaking work that room service workers do in the Hotel business and make eight dollars an hour. Or the lettuce picking immigrant who works from 6:30am to 7:30pm and makes three dollars an hour, or the average warehouse associate who stacks boxes on pallets for hours and makes ten an hour with zero benefits. Doesn't look like hard work is all that rewarding to me.

There you go again. 5 years into the Oblamo Presidency and still blaming Bush. Every time you libs do this is a sign you know Oblamo is nothing but an ideologue in an empty suit.

Education is the answer and there is plenty of opportunities there. For those that do the work you describe if it is not by choice do something about it.

You have demonstrated a entitlement pattern here by attempting many excuses for lack of achievement. People don't become successful over night. Preparation, education and perseverance are required with a bit of good luck. After being in the workforce for over 30 years, opportunity is there for those that put forth an effort with a decent attitude.

Good luck! You'll need it with the outlook you currently have. Don't expect much until your attitude changes.
