Re: Black Racism Rampant In America

It's actually quite simple. Black racism remains a dynamic phenomenon because African Americans have been told, ad nauseum, by "civil rights leaders" and by leftist whites in influential organizations like the ACLU, to look outside of themselves for the roots of every ill that plagues their community; to reflexively blame white society for their problems rather than to take responsibility for their own lives; and to view themselves as the oppressed and powerless victims of a white "power structure," a status they are led to believe renders them somehow incapable of being genuine racists themselves -- no matter how much they may detest the white people they perceive to be their tormenters. Moreover, they have been taught to angrily reject astute observations like those of Bill Cosby, who has publicly lamented how illegitimacy, parental neglect, lack of educational effort, and bad behavior have decimated black life.

As a white person it's hard for me to understand just how much overt and covert racism there is in America.  Probably the most eye opening thing for me was the 20/20 episode which compared a black and white person trying to get a taxi, shopping in a department store, and trying to rent an apt.  It was shocking.

Lately Barney's has suddenly been embroiled for profiling black customers as not being able to afford their merchandise.  Google shopping while black or driving while black if you want to get some perspective other than your own.

I'm sure there are some black racists, but I would be willing to say there are millions more white racists in America.
