Uh Huh

You don't understand because you don't want to. You don't sound ignorant to me, but you do sound like you're more concerned about pointing fingers at the race card than anything else. You were probably raised to believe that way.

Oprah Winfrey once said, "I was raised to believe that excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism. And that's how I operate my life." She didn't do too bad, now did she?

And Judith Jamison said, "We can go on talking about racism and who treated whom badly, but what are you going to do about it? Are you going to wallow in that or are you going to create your own agenda?"
She was the first African American woman to direct a major modern dance company. Not too shabby either, huh?

The "oh, poor pitiful me" mindset may work fine for obtaining food stamps or welfare, but it won't work out in the real world, away from the projects.

When will justice "equal out"? Well, I don't know when it will equal out, but it will start when African Americans realize they are just as prejudiced against whites as whites are against them. It will start when African Americans take responsibility for their actions and go out and get a job instead of expecting white taxpayers to take care of them. It will start when they quit having babies on taxpayers dimes and support their own children. And it will start when they realize that drugs and gangs are holding them back, and holding them down.
