The bottom line is we should use history as a road map. We know that this country came about from rebellous and violent origins. Also this has been historically a very racialistic society. So I am not surprised to see the power struggles that occurs each generation among those who play the "oppressor" and "oppressed". There have been and continue to be the playing out of these roles on a global scale. If there is any real conspiracy it is bigger than just race.....we must take a critical approach at the ediface that created the conditions that have formed our current state. Obviously racism has evolved to a more subtle form, however if we would decide to look at the systematic and institutional discrimination that takes place on every level it begs the question why do we still allow this beast to "conform" us. Fortunately our diversity more and more is based on our social-economic backgrounds. Now if we can afford to be more aware and rise above the "bread and circus" placed before us we could begin to make changes.....primarily to the monetary and power structure that enslaves us. Truth be told there are a few men at the top of the pyramid with the goal of world rule. The rest of the world is being conditioned to hate the US...the puppets who steer the reigns of this country obviously are creating good reasons to hate the US with their actions. Now when we take this view we see why we have been conditioned to f!ght and argue over the small issues instead of finding the common ground to revolutionize and organize this pitiful state of a planet.

In the black community many of the crimes and devastation that we see is due to a common formula poverty+unemployment= crime. We are just as sensitive to the ills of drug use and violence as any other race. However especially in urban communities we have been redlined by financial institutions and "hyper" segregated. Thus you can not all together fault us for much of the bitterness that we hold. Considering we are a generation in probably the best position to change the preconceptions and discrimination that was perpetrated onto our ancestors it is key that both blacks and whites become more sensitive and empathetic towards one another. For blacks it is important that we continue to cultivate power into our communities through self-education and self-determination by bringing about unity. For whites it is important to not turn a blind eye to reality. Many are in a important position to not only help change the conceptions but also to open opportunities to those whom have been oppressed by the actions of your forefathers. Since slavery and "willie lynch" the psychological, physical, and emotional trauma brought about on the black community has left a wound which has expressed itself in many ways. Some positive and others negative. Understanding is the key. Healing has to take place and it would be nice if this country would recognize its wrongs and treatment of the black people in this country histroically and begin a dialogue.

Personally, I feel it is difficult to focus on the road ahead while staring at the rear view mirror. However, it is important to check back periodically to change lanes or to make a turn so as not to cause an accident. This simple analogy I feel sums up how we should utilize the wisdom from the many mistakes and the past failures among the human family. IN essense we are a family bonded by our interaction with each other. Whether we except that belief or not it is fact. It is not a matter of black, white or red. Rather people "SHOULD BE" judged based on whether they are a good or bad human beings and this must be measured by actions upon an individual basis.

That led social psychologists Anthony Greenwald and Mahzarin Banaji to develop a computer test that allows anyone to find out if they're unconsciously prejudiced.

So far, more than 4 million people have taken the online test, known as the Implicit a.ssociation Test. Of the 1 million people who've taken a test on racism, about 80 percent show a preference for whites over blacks. (The test is at implicit.harvard.edu.)
Damn propz for this link

I have done 3 of the a.ssociation tests so far and here are my results:
No preference towards Black/White people
Slight preference of Australia over U.S.A.
Slight preference of Straight over Gay

These tests are worth checking out implicit.harvard.edu
