Ah yes, and those who call themselves Republicans are lining up to move into Black neighborhoods, attend predominantly Black schools and patronize Black businesses. Lest we forget, they're also at the forefront of all the civil rights movements. As trite and perhaps hackneyed as a saying it may be, I'll write it here again anyway and that is--"People who live in glass houses shouldn't cast stones." Ha!

I live in a suburb of Cleveland that was once mostly white. Now it's around a 50/50 mix or more.

When this neighborhood was all white, my liberal white neighbors used to complain that our suburb wasn't diverse enough; we needed to be part of the melting pot so they said.

When their wish finally started to come true, they were the first to sell their homes and get out of Dodge. Now the only white people here are conservatives. Those liberal whites that complained so much about our lack of diversity moved to the whitest neighborhoods they could afford, and now preach their diversity message over there.

It's liberals that are all talk--no do.

Liberal Democrats advocated for Racial segregation too and created what was known as Redlining and the Liberal Democrats today still haven't changed and still play the race card and they call it Liberalism and the Blacks that are in the Republican Party know that and nothing to do with those liberal racist bigots.

History of housing discrimination

The practice of informally segregating and discriminating based on race has always existed. However, in 1934 the practice of redlining neighborhoods came into existence through the National Housing Act of 1934.This practice, also known as mortgage discrimination, began when the federal government and the newly formed Federal Housing Administration allowed the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation to create “residential security maps,” outlining the level of security for real-estate investments in 239 cities around the United States. On these maps, high-risk areas were outlined in red. Many minority neighborhoods were redlined in these maps, meaning that banks would deny all mortgage capital to people living within them. This contributed to the decay of many of these neighborhoods because the lack of loans for buying or making repairs on the homes made it difficult for these neighborhoods to attract and keep families. Many urban historians point to redlining as one of the main factors for urban disinvestment and the decline of central cities in the middle decades of the 20th century.

National Housing Act of 1934

The National Housing Act of 1934, Pub.L. 84–345, 48 Stat. 847, enacted June 28, 1934, also called the Capehart Act, was part of the New Deal passed during the Great Depression in order to make housing and home mortgages more affordable. It created the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation. It also created the United States Housing Authority to make low-interest, long term loans to local public agencies for slum clearance and construction of low-income dwellings.

Speaking of making it easier on invaders, I just noticed the phone company, who also provides Internet and television was adjusting their rates. Most services were going up by 50 cents to 2-3 dollars. But their Spanish programming was the only thing going down, maybe 3-5 dollars.

White people now practice "dog whistle" racism and "micro aggression". The latter I see daily. It comes from jealousy and insecurity. White racists use these techniques now so they can try and claim not to be racist. Everyone educated knows this.

If they do. Then they never really studied the story about where he showed up.
.
They only see the face he showed to his owner. So his owner would not suspect that he was part of the Underground Railroad. He was the person who gave up his own chance of happiness so OTHERS could be free and happy.
.
They also forget that it was due to the efforts of the Republican Party that got slavery abolished. Since one of the roots of the Republican Party was the Conscience" Whigs. Which opposed the democrat's view on slavery. The democrats back then wanted slavery to be legal every where in America. If it wasn't for the Republicans, Blacks still would be unfortunately enslaved.

So you now all about being white do you? You "know" that we're jealous of you? How? How do you fail to see that most white Americans aren't racists, never were racists and don't plan to become racists no matter how hard you try.

Grow up and consider you are trashing the only race to fully abolish slavery, even though ALL races of humanity have practiced it. Only 1 race has ended it entirely so maybe you're the jealous one. You could be jealous of the honor and benevolence that finally manifested itself in humanity thanks to the actions of white people. Perhaps some day you'll rise as far.

Until then, you choose to bite the hand that is feeding more than 50% of your population in the US. The only insecurity we have is for the law and how easily it can be twisted by the same leftist agenda that drives your thinking. Only, you seem to be too stupid to realize how you're being used. Instead you make your hatred of white people blatantly obvious and as expected you illustrate how white people will NEVER shed the yoke of racism with racists like you fanning the flames.

What's interesting is he way you employ an almost Nazi-esque reasoning. I wonder if you're a stooge for one of those radical left-funded groups. Is there no gray in your life? Only black and white? Perhaps you should travel more and learn how people get alone around the planet. It might surprise you. Sure it's not perfect. But it's not the little black and white hole you have dug here for yourself.

You speak of educated people who would fully understand your bigotry. I think you might be right. And I think the smarter of these people would avoid you. Black or white.

If you blacks are so wonderful,why can't you speak English? Your no better than Illegal Mexicans, with that language.
I guess it doesn't matter. You are siding with illegals, who are stealing the country from blacks, too. It doesn't matter if you have no country, so long as whites don't have it either?
Blacks are dumb, to waste time hating whites for what dead whites did 200 years ago.
Those people are dead. Slaves are dead. It doesn't matter anymore.
Currently, we are at war with global third-world immigrants. All Americans are being replaced with alien foreign invaders.
Is that ok with you?

That is exactly my point and you summed it up nicely. Thanks!

I just wonder what has to happen, before blacks see what the rest of us sees.
Obama and his newly recruited foreign army will sweet-talk blacks, until whites are gone or greatly weakened.
Then, they will proceed to attack black Americans. There will be no one to stop them.
The goal is to erase real American citizens. Where will this leave the NA's?

Michael Parenti,
Masters of War, ed Carl Boggs, p23

U.S. leaders profess a dedication to democracy. Yet over the past five decades, democratically elected reformist governments—guilty of introducing redistributive economic programs—in Guatemala, Guyana, the Dominican Republic, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Syria, Indonesia (under Sukarno), Greece, Cyprus, Argentina, Bolivia, Haiti, the Congo, and numerous other nations— were overthrown by their respective military forces funded and advised by the U.S..
