For the past few years the "desire" of minority people seem to be returning to a self-imposed segregation atmosphere. If that's what they want, I see no problem with it at all. I grew up in the time of segregation, and we didn't have the crime and violence we have now. As long as it's voluntary, let it happen. People are happier among their own kind.
There have been a couple of recent documentaries that have taken a hard look at the old "Green Book" days. In addition to less crime and civil unrest, most minorities did better economically back then. While they did not have big sports and entertainment millionaires, there were a lot of successful mom and pop minority businesses that have since disappeared.

The following facts are often cited. They may not be entirely accurate, but the phenomenon they describe is real: On average, a dollar earned in the Asian community stays in the Asian community for 28 days. In the Jewish community, 19 days. But a dollar earned in the black community only stays in the community about six hours. It is impossible to buy all the goods and services the average person needs and wants in the black community, which is not true of the other two minority communities. My guess is you can buy most of the goods and services the average person needs and wants in the Hispanic community also.

I am not for legal segregation at all, but ironically segregation supported a black economy. When segregation went away, people in that economy abandoned it almost immediately. The other minority economic communities saw the value in hanging on to their economies even after they didn't have to.

Not sure that voluntary segregation is what helped black small business prosper.
When LBJ's "Great Society" came out and all the billions of dollars in hand outs were given to the black community in return for their everlasting loyalty and votes.
It took the spirit out of them. Why work hard when the new plantation owners are going to give you free housing, food, healthcare.
That is what destroyed the black culture.
Now the socialists are trying to do that with the rest of the American society with Democratic Socialism
Afraid I am getting too political now so I will stop now.

NAAJP - (advancement for Jewish people)?

Miss Jewish America?


Point being; The Jewish race has endured thousands of years of slavery and being murdered way more than any other race in the world...and yet they are NOT complaining or asking for freebies due to the way they were treated all over the world?

Q; Why are we pampering ONE race just because a few of them want free stuff? When is SOUTH America going to get railroaded for having more african slaves than N. America ever did?

Because if you pamper that one race in this county, they will vote for you. They have not effectively preserved and grown their own economy, so they have no economic foundation, whereas other ethnic groups have. Pampering that group doesn't work as well in South America. Historical slavery is often used as a excuse, but mostly because it adds a guilt trip to the argument in this country.

FWIW, in Africa, there are somewhere between 7 million and 8.5 million slaves today.

This video/audio is being rebroadcast locally on talk shows (conservative, of course). A great way to bring up the topic is to reverse the conversation: "Hey, there are too many black people here..."

But, according to the Leftist Bible, it's impossible for people of color to be racist.

Sounds like they want to return to the days of Lester Maddox and Strom Thurmond setting race relations back 60 years.

Let me guess, most of the students are white. So, like DUH! Of course most of the students in any area will be white. Too bad.

I'll admit, most of my friends are white. It just happens. I have a good friend who is black. And a Marine (no one is an ex-marine, unless dishonorably discharged, I would think).

Educated and intelligent are not the same thing at all. Stupid people can be educated to believe some really silly ideas.
True. You are born with a certain level of intelligence and over your lifetime, it can never be increased, only decreased through injury or disease. Knowledge is the acquisition and retention of information.

Jews are not a race. They are part of a race, just like Catholics or Muslims or Baptists, but there is no Jewish race.

"When is SOUTH America going to get railroaded for having more african slaves than N. America ever did?"
Add to this Central America and the Caribbean islands and you are dead on correct. Brazil was the recipient territory that received most of the black African slaves. Around 95% percent of the African slaves who were sent to the new world arrived in South America, Central America, and the Caribbean islands. Only 5% of them arrived in what later became the United States. The total number sent to the new world was 12.5 million. Initially most all that came to the American colonies were indentured servants who were able to work off their indenture debt and become free. The first large slave holder in Virginia was one of these freed indentured black servants.

Slavery is an abomination. England, Spain, and the Dutch, and later the northern states, should never have brought them over here. But they did and our early history is tainted by it.

In addition, we never hear how the African tribes were the ones that collected the people to sell. Slavery is what might be called 'normal' between tribes of indigenous peoples back then in the non-industrialized countries. Hell, it's still normal in those countries, just on a lesser scale. Look at the MSM and see all the articles on trafficking and slavery going on today.

A big black guy was in our car pool in the sixties and he said that what hurt was when he came home after serving his country during the war and they made him use the back door to enter restaurants. He said " I know you are good boys and you wouldn't have made me do something like that." But I knew that I would have been just as ignorant as any white person in those days. They change the whole story these days but they can't take away the pain in my heart when I think about old Herb and how he was treated. What they are teaching these young people in schools doesn't do justice to what it was really like and how everybody who was an American was involved whether they wanted to be or not. So it's not how they portray racial relations these days that bothers me it is the fact that they are destroying the real story of what happened and if it is not told, right, then nobody learned from it.

All of a sudden, the top black athletes in the predominantly black high schools could get scholarships to predominantly white universities. Especially in the college money sports of football and basketball. This largely destroyed the athletic programs in those sports in the historically black colleges and universities.

Im going to have to disagree in that you cannot increase your brain and knowledge just by what you do and do not eat! Eat sugar, lots of sugar. Sugar will make you wise :yup:
(ie: inventors of Krispy Kream we’re brilliant!)
