re: America is remarkably free of the oppression of people of color - ShortyRob
Can I just refer back to the OP to point out that saying America is remarkably free of oppression is not saying it is 100% free. Frankly. I think it is impossible to disagree that we ARE remarkably free of oppression. We are an absurdly diverse society in comparison to basically anywhere....... ...

You know what the REAL challenge for blacks Politically and fit their psyche will be? In 2065, it is projected that whites will no longer be greater than 50%. Asians will have similar percentages blacks. Hispanics will double up blacks. Politics will look MUCH Different and it will only shift...

[quote]It's simple really. 2 words. Generational responsibility. Where it exists, people are fine. Where it doesn't exist, kids have no chance. It's not society's fault. It's not the white man's fault. Look within.[/quote] This really is a biggie. I know that it's unlikely for my kid to have the...

[quote]I can't answer that without knowing what you mean when you say oppression Good luck with that one.[/quote]I don't understand why this happens on this board so much. If you use a term that has no rock solid meaning by itself, or, a term that implies underlying acts, it seems perfectly ...

[quote] wager that you're more interested in proving me wrong than learning anything. The welfare system which penalizes work and incentivizes single parenthood has destroyed the black family. Culturally, education hasn't been valued by blacks because they were never intended to be educated. The cri...

[quote]no you didn't. You said schools are inanimate and left it at that. [/quote] I think you should re read my post. I made the point that schools are inanimate. IE. They're just buildings.

[quote]The basis of the oppression of black Americans is that they weren't brought to this country as humans. They were never intended to be treated with dignity or have rights or be educated. That's the basis of their oppression,imo.[/quote] Well. Using that, it will never end. I suggest that ...

[quote] No one is going to make me feel guilty for the failure of an entire race of people. The black community IS oppressed. The poor people in the 'hood that cannot leave their houses because of the drug and gang activity on their streets are oppressed by their own people. The black people that t...

[quote]This is something I have a hard time separating. I realize that it's more of a SES problem now, but that's also after the government has implemented programs which effectively destroyed the black family and guaranteed the cycle of poverty. So now a disproportionate number of blacks fit the lo...
