When veteran journalist Ellis Cose wrote "The Rage of a Privileged Class" in 1993, his editor was so shocked by his thesis -- that black middle-class professionals were deeply frustrated by enduring discrimination in the workplace and remained unable to achieve the same level of success as their white colleagues -- that he pulled him aside to ask ...

Hell no! When white folks are on the way out then racism will be on the way out. They started this mess. I wonder how different would the world be if whites had treated free slaves nice and as equals?

The only racists that are causing problems in the USA currently are coloured black.

Slavery has nothing to do with today.
No black people alive today have ever been slaves, nor have their parents.
No white people alive today have ever owned slaves, nor have their parents.
Slavery does not affect anybody alive today in any way, no exceptions.
Get over it.

You see, the ancestors of these colored of ours were sold as slaves by their black brothers and shipped here to pick cotton. Problem was, they were shitty slaves who didn't work very hard so the plantation had to have a lot of the smelly brutes.

Today, we're stuck with about 38 million negroes, most of which are completely useless or worse. We've had to dumb-down our schools for their pickaninnies, our jails are completely full of them, and 50% of all social welfare goes to 12% of the population - boog's!

It's time to stop the bleeding and send most of them back home. The ones who work hard, don't commit crime, don't breed illegitimate pick's, and don't complain can stay. The other 35 million or so need to be shipped back to where they came from ASAP!

Imagine an America with 50% less violent crime, prisons and courts not clogged and overflowing, schools that are at the same level as other white countries like Britain and Canada, an end to ghettos and urban blight, less disease (AIDS, other STD's), billions in welfare savings, and most of all, an end to our long national embarrassment. Imagine an end to the whining and complaining!

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ' 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances.
Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown , and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids..? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America 's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

This is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

And then to add to that a little more: whites freed slaves, but they never said they were obligated to be nice to them.
That interprets to racism, for some reason. I don't have to be nice to every single person I meet. Do you?

You totally don't get it do you....Whitey started hate...whitey continues hate...because of whiteys previous hate of blacks....it has hurt and entire race of people. Some have gotten over it and beyond it. Others can't seem to get out of the systematic hole of oppression and self hate that whitey has made blacks feel.

Black people should be happy for food stamps and section 8 housing??? And where are scholarships for deserving Catholic students??? Are you fkking kidding me??? How about NOT having 100 years of Jim Crow Laws and severe racial discrimination AFTER 400 years of slavery??? You are a complete idiot. You are one ignorant person. Whites are complaining??? White people are so privaledged in the US, what the hell would YOU do if you woke up and there was only ONE white member in the US Senate???

You're right! The black animals should pay Whites reparations for all the damages, fraudulent government checks, housing, education, and murders they've committed since 1865. This would amount to more than Ten Trillion Dollars and free tickets back to Africa in return.

As for the first 'black' president, Obama has FAILED at all the important factors:

FAILED to stop millions of jobs lost to Americans.
FAILED to stop millions of home foreclosures by banksters.
FAILED to stop the fraudulent bailout thefts by liars.
FAILED to create any jobs for Americans.
FAILED to rush to help Americans hit by disasters.
FAILED to balance the federal budget.
FAILED to remove troops from Iraq or Afghanistan.
FAILED to help Americans during his term in office.

Obama's job performance has qualified him for just one job - guzzling beers at the golf course!
