I just don't get this. I am not telling you that some white people don't like blacks and I am not going to say that some blacks don't like whites and I am the first to treat others how I want to be treated, but when I watched this Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com
on the same topic as what Brent posted, I just beg to ask why. If you are fighting for equal rights, respect, and maybe not to even be talked about WHY do some people have to go only for one thing? Its like they (ref this vid clip) only want to talk about black issues, and that might be fine but don't come back and say that racism is a white thing.
I was talking to my boss at work that is going to school also (like myself) and we got to talking about how to get more money for school then we talked about all the grants for non white's. But If I make a "white only" grant I am "holding down" the blacks?
(feel free to chime in you guys from the south cause I am talking from a midwest state that in my town we have 96% white, 3%blacks and 1% "other" (thats what it said ?) and may I add that the blacks I know and have grown up with all have or are in college.)
Here in indy (the big city south of my home town) they have "Black Expo" its a week long fest all about black's. last year 3 people were killed (black on black shooting) and so far this year atleast 1 was shot and 2 were hit with a taser. What if I wanted a white expo talking about how my family came over seas... I would be called out on it and the NAACP would have me killed.
I really do think a lot of this comes from family. most of the inner city schools have (in Indianapolis) have the lowest grades for ISTEP in the state, and the highest unemployment in the state for black family's but why Do I have to pay more now on my taxes to help them out cause they DONT want to work?
