Is it because your white suburban kids listen to rap music??
Is it because your white suburban kids know more about Tupac then Elvis???
Is it because our penis is larger and you don't want your wife to find out about the BIG one???

Is it because our black women are beautiful and have the body of a goddess???(yeah I see you white guys at the strip club spending all your money on black girls, don't deny it lol)
Is it because we are superior in sports???
Is it because Tiger Woods is the best player in an all white sport???
Is it because Hank Aaron took The BABE title???
Is it because your next President will be a black man???
LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
Whatever the reason is, I LOVE IT... You see us as a threat, and maybe thats why you hate us!!!!!!!!
lol> Maybe we'll all get along for a day when 911 happens again. Sad but true. I'm not a religous freak, but I swaer it was the oddest thing to see everyone for once being nice to each other, everyone had a conversation with those they wouldn't normally THINK about even speaking to. Black/White= doesn't matter when a major tragedy happens huh???

Not so Angry White Man wrote:
"I recognize his rage as a general anger about the conditions of black Americans, who he says still deal constantly with racism. This is exactly what most other black people I know believe."
"constantly"? Look, I don't doubt that racism still is a problem, but I have trouble believing that black Americans still deal with it constantly.
"Unlike Pastor Wright in the pulpit, most of us don't come off nakedly angry - we'd never survive that way, emotionally or otherwise. But what for us is ever present nonetheless strikes white people as outrageous. Nothing makes them more skittish than realizing that there are angry black people in their midst - and an angry black man is most alarming of all, especially one running for president."
Mr. Angry Black Man, there are plenty of other things that make this One White Person more skittish than you being in my midst, so why not give your racial generalizations a rest. Then maybe you'd be able to see that not all White People are as bad you think they are to justify your anger.
Speaking for myself, I'm trying to give this Getting Along With Others thing a chance. I try not to jump to a negative conclusion whenever a conflict with another person arises, particularly if they are of another Demographic Group, and I hope you can do the same.
I try not to generalize about a negative experience or two I may have had with members of another Demographic Group, and I try to believe that when talking with someone we can both see each other's human-ness more than each other's "race-ness".
I try to hold on to the hope that we can grow and improve as a species and not define ourselves and others so rigidly by some characteristic such as race, gender, etc. that none of us had any say in assigning.
I try not to give in to bitterness and anger nor have them manipulated by others.
Whether or not Barack Obama succeeds in winning the Democratic nomination or the general election this year or sometime in the future, I'd like to think that the groundswell of support he received so far shows that many white people in many different states were ready and willing to elect him to be the next president.
This is maybe why the clips of his pastor were so damaging: they show a man who Obama viewed as his spiritual mentor not embracing the Audacity of Hope, a phrase he coined, but recklessly preaching a message of anger and pessimism that betrays Obama's campaign theme of hope, change, and unity.
I am a proud black woman and I agree with you on this. I believe your post outshines all previous negative post. Explain where you stand and keep the hostility out....if not, black and white sounds pretty ignorant. Second thought: while whites and blacks are pointing the finger and fighting each other.... watch the ones slipping in the door, ILLEGALLY and taking over. It won't be long and blacks and whites can stand in the unemployment line TOGTHER. Maybe THEN and only then will everyone come together for the same cause. It's coming, keep sleeping on it. Take the test: call any companies lately to pay your bills? Push 2- FOR ENGLISH. Go your any government agency and watch how many ENGLISH speakers are there to help you. Bet you'll have difficulty getting help. Our fight should be for black and white citizens to be treated fair and equal, instead of being so against each other that both races lose in the end.

It was nice for a second after 9-11 when people were Americans instead of African,Italian,Mexican,Irish, Asian and polka dotted Americans.
How did we collectivly forget so easily?
That second we realized it was awesome under the worst conditions.

The f*ck who wrote that article can be mad all he wants, the office of president is not for taking out your personal vendetta's against society. As far blacks complaining that Obama isn't getting a fair shake because whites should vote for him, well, the last time I checked it was a free country and somebody can vote for whomever they choose.
If Obama wanted to be president, maybe he shouldn't have been following reverend nutjob!

So you're reasoning for why I shouldn't vote for Obama is because he is black?.
Nope, because he is a racist.
But of course you do not even know what party was key in implementing the Civil Rights Act, here is a hint, it was not the democrats. But then your knowledge of politics, and social history is really lacking. But you are just a kid, brainwashed by the left, hence unable to think for yourself.

I think I must just be a confused American. The democrates and republican have good sides. Most of the time, I feel like I'm a trader, raised democrat, however... like republicans, I feel if you apply yourself and if you're prepared(educated0, you have an opportunity, like anyone else. I've taught my children the importance of education, hard work. I've instilled in them that they should never believe anyone owes them anything. You want a new car, you work hard, save your money, stay on top of your credit, pay your bills on time etc. Housing issues, you don't see paper, trask laying around and walk pass it. You take care of your property. You like music, FINE. But it is for your pleasure, NOT the whole damn neighborhood. You want respect, you give respect. You carry yourself like you are somebody, why? because you are somebody and not to be a disgrace to our family. Morals begin at home. I also preach to them that EVERY decision they make WILL affect the rest of their lives. I do like Bill Cosby's concept. Some blacks feel he is a traded but you have to really pat attention to his words. Our black youth as lost, have few leaders, and strong black men to look up to. Their parents,(I'm talking about the ones living in what some call the "ghetto"), are probably on drugs etc and not setting a good example themselves. I feel for them, but in all actuality, it's still little excuse for their actions of killing each other and selling drugs. Some blacks do have a goal and work towards that but some feel sorry for themselves and do nothing to change their situation. As fars as the next President, I don't like any of them. They all have "game" and a pretty speech. They always do. They each have issues that I don't like. No I won't vote for OB because he is a black man( that's no reason, although many will just to prove a black man can do it, bet does that make him qualified? No I won't vote for Hillary. Is she better qualified because she is a white woman and was 1st lady and visited this country and that, just to not vote for OB. No I won't. McCain, I don't think so. I'd love to vote if we had someone decent to vote for.

Hey idiot, you were born here, so no one forced you or your parents, or your grandparents, or your grat grandparents over here.
None of the present day whites were ever involved in brining slaves to this country, nor did their parents or grand parents, or great grand parents.
So enough with the BS feel sorry for me.

No, I am white. I didn't vote for the guy that is going to kill southern kids who are 19 years old like me in Iraq. I didn't vote for Hillary, because Obama is better. I would vote for Hillary in the general election though. If it were Bill running, I think all of America would vote for him, but unfortunately he can't.
I am white and if you want me to tell you my lineage like you probably don't even know your own even though you're probably twice the age of me, I'll be more than happy. I voted for Obama because I support a candidate with a liberal voting record who wants to get us out of Iraq (which means fix our economy) and take the first steps to getting universal health care.
Whites are voting for Obama. And especially college students, which I'm one of. It's nice to have a candidate that isn't polarizing, which is why he's done better than McCain and Clinton up to this point. Why don't you into every college around the country and talk to white kids yourself. They'd tell you if you would have stayed in college a little longer, you might be smart enough to vote for Obama.
You know, I may not see eye to eye with you concerning a few things but you have to be one of the most levelheaded, respectful humanbeings of any race on these boards....You give great arguments that make me evaluate things from a different perspective....I do not view you as a racist and that person calling you dumb or black is doing so because they lack the skill that you have with words...keep up the great work with your post....

Dont get mad, get angry. I employ many whites at minimum wage and then I make them wait on me like slaves . Its great being wealthy and black in America.I pay my black employees more than my white employees and then make the whites do menial and degrading things. The best revenge is to be rich and powerful like me.

We didn't bring you here moron, you were born here. Any African that was originally prought here is long, long gone so quit your whining. Besides you have freedoms including the right to leave anytime you or do you think white people owe you a passport too?
If you have cable TV, and I'm sure you do, watch the Travel channel or Discovery channels that feature programs about African tribes. See how they live? All you whiny blacks will never, ever leave because then you would have to give up your expensive shoes, and you FUBU jeans and they don't sell OE in the jungle. There you would have to actually work if you wanted a watermelon. You would have to hunt for your food and make your own place to cover your head.
And above all, there would be no one around to complain about white people to.
Blacks keep talking about respect, what do most of you do to deserve respect? Respect isn't given, it's earned. But there's that word "earned", it implies that you would need to work for it and we can't have that can we. No, no it's just easier to rob a liquor store, or shoot somebody or some other ciminal act and then call racism when you get caught.
Our inner cities are slums, not because of white people, but because you people made them that way. No self respecting architect in the world designs ghettos.
You want a nice place to live, get off your ass and quit sitting on the stoop drinking beer or smoking weed and quit blaming white people!
So I could give a flying f*ck if you or any other black person is mad, you put it on yourselves. There are no original slaves anymore and you have the right to leave at any time, as far as I'm concerned I encourage you to leave and take as many you can with you because I'm tired of the complaining.

You've got to be fricken kidding us all right!
Have you been living under a rock.
Your black ansestors made black slaves in Africa, the white man came and traded and bought and likely rounded up a few wild black natives while they were cooking thier roots in the bush. Blacks drew up their own playbook on slavery.
Hate on your black ansestors.
Why is it your race ever allowed to be enslaved in the first place? Lack of slef esteem , assembly, brain power, lazy? Explain to us just how your race allowed for it in the first place? It really says alot about your heritage. But hate on the right group od ususl suspects, your black ansestors in Africa. You need to be thanking the white man,because with out influence from the white man and they didn't bring you here, you would still be in Africa riding Zebra's and cooking roots in the bush
Black Americans need to recoginize, none of you are really Africa/Americans unless you came from all 47 countries in Africa, and if you did, that would explain AIDS!
Wake up fool! Reading is fundemental, knowledge is power.
And if blacks don't like being profiled by the Police,.....listen up closely.....

True, but your a little off with the Jobs statistics, the curve had to be bent to survice their loud obnoxious whines so they could be employed! Thus the major lack of American quality in goods and services. A lot of them are employed, they just don't really qualify.

Racism is very pathetic - from either side! It's pathetic for those who have accomplished very little in their own lives and feel the need to spout self righteousness as they ride the coattails of others of the same race in an effort to try to make themselves feel better. Its pathetic for those who continue to allow themselves to be victims and live and operate in a victims mentality.

Both sides blame and point fingers. It's pathetic.
