It's amazing how so many blacks posting truly believe they do not have the same opportunities or abilities that "whites do". We currently have a black president for Christ Sake, in a still predominately white country no less. That speaks volumes to how far blacks have come, but they still have alot of work to do. But nevertheless the real issue is that we as a society have ingnorance on both ends. Many people see blacks as lazy, uneducated, simple minded individuals, while blacks conform to these perceptions about them by actually being lazy, uneducated, simple minded individuals. The problem is that the majority view blacks this way and a majority of blacks are this way. So its ignorance on both ends which causes such a divide. I truly believe life can deal you a sh*tty hand, theres no doubt about that. But its about how you make of it. Unfortunately it's not only blacks but latinos as well who are the minority and make up the majority population in "urban society". And its these people who live in these settings are only set up to fail if they cotinue this vicious cycle of having children young, using drugs, commiting crimes, never achieving an education, etc. I am not saying everyone is this way, but a majority of the minority population are. This is a very complicated issue which have so many factors that play a part. All in all education is key to advancing not only a race, but a country as a whole. Its amazing how there are currently convicts right now in jail, that have studied law to a point were they can theoretically be lawyers or at least pass the BAR. Why couldn't they just have studied law rather than commit the crimes that put them there. This leads to my conclusion, its this ignorance from both ends. Many blacks (or minorities) from urban societie in general, feel never in a million years can they ever be lawyers were that is far from the truth. And majority of Americans probably feel the same way about them. Blacks have to stop blaming society for all the misfortunes in their life and start self educating themselves in order to make themselves progress.

Also, whites overall do recieve the most food stamps but they have a bigger population. Blacks are second to recieving the most food stamps and have a lesser population. A higher percentage within the black race are food stamp dependents. Also blacks get more food stamps than any other race within urban communities, more than whites, latinos, or other. And were do most blacks reside or live? Hmmm?? Urban neighborhoods.



So as a whole within there race a majority recieve food stamps. Let me make this simple for the many fools that will not understand. And yes I mean you. Let say there are 50 dogs and 30 cats and someone feeds them i dont know bologne. And They feed 28 dogs a bologne and and 20 cats a bologne each as well. Well lets see her, 28 dogs who got a bologne/ 50 dogs in total= 56% of dogs who got a slice of bologne. Then you have 20 cats who got bologne / 30 cats in total (that exist)= 66% of cats who got a slice of bologne. Pay attention her because you may still be confused. So this means if you are a cat your more than likely to consume ..bologne (RECIEVE FOOD STAMPS). Simple math.


On the contary to a lot of what you and others in this thread have said, things haven't improved for blacks since the days of Jim crow/Slavery. Slavery was about exploitation, jim crow was about subordination, and currently, mass incarceration is about marginalization, or creating a permanent “caste system” with legal discrimination against a group which comprises primarily of african american men, FELONS. A Caste System is intended to relegate certain individuals to a position of permanent "second class" status. Once placed in the “second class” group, you can be legally discriminated against. I'm talking about the "felon status" and right now 1 of 8 black men is deemed "felons" or has felony records. Once labeled a felon you can be legally discriminated against (America hates felons). Currently, people who are felons can be legally discriminated against through the media, employment, education and housing, and felons actually lose their right to vote, yet still count as citizens on the census.

Now, stamping black men with a “felon status” was deliberate, and was intended to place “black men” back where they “belong” (in a subordinate position) to appease the anti-black resentment that still lingered from the post Civil Rights Era (late 1960’s). To achieve this, new terminology needed to be used in order to discriminate against blacks without appearing outright racist. Race neutral terms needed to be used to describe a certain group, without appearing racist. This began during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s, where white politicians labeled the black Civil Rights leaders as “criminals” because they violated the laws of segregation (sit ins, boycotts, protests and disobeying police, etc). Whites began to view blacks as “criminals” and this perspective has stuck throughout the past 40 years. The words “black” and “criminal” were repeatedly tied together.

Now in 2011, if you say “We as America need to do something about WHITE CRIME”, people will be confused as hell because “WHITE” and “CRIME” do not go together, or at least naturally. Why aren’t there any images a.ssociated with “WHITE CRIME”? There are no images conjured in our minds of “white criminals” or no sense of urgency to put them in prison or create laws that specifically target them. However, if you say something like, “We as America need to do something about BLACK CRIME or MEXICAN CRIME”, people will agree, because politicians and the media have done an outstanding job of portraying blacks and Hispanics as criminals, although whites complete the same crimes as minorities and escape harsh scrutiny. “MEXICAN CRIME” may conjure images of illegal immigration and drug lords, “BLACK CRIME”, crack dealers and gang bangers, ‘WHITE CRIME”, nothing. “WHITE COLLAR CRIME”, rich white dudes who rob people of millions.

This is subconscious racism that people of colors are guilty of. Here’s another example, if I told you to close your eyes and imagine a “typical crack cocaine user”, what type of person pops into you head automatically? If it’s a black person, then you may be subconsciously racist because whites abuse crack at about the same rate as blacks. Likewise, if I told you to close your eyes and imagine the typical “welfare recipient” and you picture a black person, it’s because during the 1970’s the Nixon administration began a campaign to label black men as “criminals and druggies ” and black women as “welfare queens”. The word “CRIMINAL” conjures images of “BLACK MEN” committing crimes and “WELFARE” conjures images of “BLACK WELFARE QUEENS WITH 8 KIDS LIVING OFF THE SYSTEM”.

Nixon began the War on Drugs in the early 1970’s, and every war needs an enemy and blacks were being positioned to be that enemy. By the 1980’s Reagan revamped the War on Drugs, with its intended enemy, Blacks, and stricter mandatory sentences for drug related offenses were created with 100:1 ratios for cocaine/crack; which means that a prison sentence for 100 grams of cocaine (1 year of mandatory federal prison) is equal to 1 gram of crack (cocaine is a.ssociated with whites, crack, blacks). This is after the Reagan administration a.ssisted Nicaraguan drug lords in moving cocaine into our inner cities (predominately black neighborhoods) in the early 1980’s and crack was created. Reagan’s War on Drugs began before the emergence of crack, but when it surfaced, his administration used the media to describe “Crack” as a “dangerously lethal drug, that makes people violently aggressive and homicidal and turns them into “criminals”.

Sensational news stories circulated during the 1980’s showing “black crack heads” and “black thugs”. For white audiences around the nation, this reinforced their view of blacks as “criminals who are dangerous and need to be ostracized from society” and also catered to the anti-black sentiment that was still lingering from the 1960’s, just 20 years earlier. Thus, mass incarceration began, the new slavery, the new jim crow, the new way to discriminate against “black men” without appearing racists because “criminal and felon” are race neutral terms, but the words “criminal and felon” conjures images of black and brown people, not whites who commit the same crimes. Just as “welfare” another race neutral term makes people imagine “lazy blacks”. You gotta realize there is some subconscious racism underlying these statements by guys like Gingrich.

Most of the black men in prison are there because of the drug laws, which were intended to balloon prison populations. Whites are collateral damage, they were not the intended targets of the War on Drugs and mass incarceration, but a lot of them are in prison because of these racist drug laws. Once labeled a “felon”, you can be legally discriminated against and once labeled a “welfare recipient”, apparently, you can be publically discriminated against.

and...don't get me started on the racist judicial system and police tactics that target blacks, or the socioeconomic systems that destroy black opportunities and that how the only blacks that are allowed to succeed in America are the ones that don't offend whites, or the educational system that labels black kids as retards, or segregation that crowds blacks in ghettos, or how the media exploits black stereotypes for records sales and viewership etc. etc. etc.

And for the record...black people just need to forget about slavery. If the effect of learning about slavery is going to learn to nothing but excuse making, double standards and reverse racism, then it would do blacks better to just forget about the slavery nonsense. Besides, slavery isn't even exclusive black history.
We can't forget about "slavery" if it still exits, brah. It's just taken a different form. Oh I get it...we're supposedly free now cause the "white man" emancipated us, so we should just forget about the 400 years of enslavement he subjected us to, huh?. Nah, fu*k that. Let me ask you something...

If someone broke into your house and kidnapped you, your wife, and your children, threw you in a van and drove off to some unknown location, then pulled you out the van, r*ped your wife in front of you, sold you kids to s3x traffickers, and then forced you and others like you to work for him, denounce your god, learn his language, and beat you for not working hard enough, and then after a lifetime of this abuse he decided to let you go because laws in his country no longer allowed slavery, and not because he felt sympathy for your plight or had a major epiphany about slavery, but because he had no choice and was forced to let you go...would you be able to forget about what he had done to you and your family? When you tell stories about what you experienced to your children, and they tell their children and your story passes on and it becomes their history, would you feel dignified if the future generations forgot your story ever happened or minimized it? From heaven or where ever your soul rests, as you gaze down at your people and see them subjected to a modernized version of enslavement, much worse then what you experienced because this generation actually believes they're free, would you feel horrified, cynical or content?

It's not about making excuses brah, it's about ending this "age of color blindness" and "lack of compassion for others". If whites excepted their history, their REAL history and not the glorified bullsh*t we teach in social studies classes around the nation, and they excepted their part in destroying the "black man" and the modern systems intended to keep him enslaved, then they will certainly be overcomed by a sense of compassion and guilt, and may very well make attempts to rectify their history. I doubt it though, because truthfully, they owe us too much. It's "color blindness" that's root of the problems we face in society, not "making excuses", because when you fall to acknowledge history as a factor of what's occuring today, you have no future.

That's why you and your kind will always be losers. What's sad is that people like you breed and teach your children this kind of nonsense. Next thing you know, it'll be the year 2100 and black kids will still be blaming slavery and using race as an excuse for everything.

Herman Cain? Really? That's the best you can do? Only in the black community is being educated and taking responsibility for your own life instead of blaming others so heavily frowned upon.
For the record..."n*gga/n.igger" is an ignorant person. Which describes all of your kind who have posted in this thread. I couldn't care less what the *white man* or any man think of me. They can's stop me from doing a damn thing. But it's funny because no white person ever tried to stop me...it's always been black people who have tried to hold me down. My goal in life is to get as far as I can and bring as many hungry, ambitious people as I can with me. Who gives a fu*k about race? Besides poor whites and blacks.....
fu*k outta here, u cant fool me with ur lies...blacks always taken responsibility, its whites that dont. when i was young and stupid i use to believe this garbage, thankfully im a critical thinker now

most white people something to blame..whites have a arrogance and sense of entitlement...most white kids i know are lazy drunks/druggies that take life for granted and cant survive without their parents...

whites also play the race card more then anybody....u mothafu*kas cant pull a fast one on me, take that trash to one of these weak minded uncle toms...i know the deal, i see right through u

Thus, mass incarceration began, the new slavery, the new jim crow, the new way to discriminate against “black men” without appearing racists because “criminal and felon” are race neutral terms, but the words “criminal and felon” conjures images of black and brown people, not whites who commit the same crimes. Just as “welfare” another race neutral term makes people imagine “lazy blacks”. You gotta realize there is some subconscious racism underlying these statements by guys like Gingrich.

Most of the black men in prison are there because of the drug laws, which were intended to balloon prison populations. Whites are collateral damage, they were not the intended targets of the War on Drugs and mass incarceration, but a lot of them are in prison because of these racist drug laws. Once labeled a “felon”, you can be legally discriminated against and once labeled a “welfare recipient”, apparently, you can be publically discriminated against.

and...don't get me started on the racist judicial system and police tactics that target blacks, or the socioeconomic systems that destroy black opportunities and that how the only blacks that are allowed to succeed in America are the ones that don't offend whites, or the educational system that labels black kids as retards, or segregation that crowds blacks in ghettos, or how the media exploits black stereotypes for records sales and viewership etc. etc. etc.

I hate how the media perpetuates stereotypes and then sensationalizes them by finding an example that fits. Just cause the media shows you a few black people sitting on their a.sses talking about welfare and food stamps ignorant people always a.ssume "well it must be the blacks wanting handouts."

First of all there are always people trying to cheat the system and get through life on scraps in every race, religion, and creed. Stop getting mad and acting like it is just one race. White people are the majority in the country and they are the majority of the population who are on welfare and receive food stamps, yet no one tell them to get off their lazy a.sses and get paychecks.

People like Newt Gingrich pander to the lazy and ignorant Americans who willingly accept any information that is force fed to them through any media outlet. They get upset and agree with outlandish statements and are too lazy to find out if there is any credence at all to the claim in question.
another real a.ss post....
