Racism still goes on today and in the workforce it still shows. My companies upper staff is all white, not a single minority.

Being puerto rican, I cannot walk through a store without being watched by non-minorities and women clutching their purses or what-not.

Minorities may get the job due to affirmative action, but their pay is still considerably less than non-minority.

As for the "i walk around and get watched by non-minorities"... what do you think happens to me when I walk into largely black communities? How about an asian restaurant... how about a blacktop... I'm that "pretty white kid"... it's racist but who gives a sh*t just move on and rise above it.

k Cute remark. Sounds familiar. Oh, that's right. Every other half-witted white kid has come up with it before.

Yes, all blacks need to do is "rise above it." Only if they would've thought of that sooner. Discussions re: race on this forum always go the same route. "Salvery eneded a long time ago, ergo, everything's ok." Ignorance, it's a b!tch.

Why do I waste my time? It's just like the poli talk forum on here...there's no point.

My Ukrainian and Scottish ancestors were slaves way back in the day, but I wouldn't know a damned thing about it had I not heard about it from my grandparents and some history books.

Conclusion: Unless you or your family were directly involved in modern-day slavery, you have nothing to whine about and deserve no reparations or apologies. If you still demand an apology and free money, you can start by talking to the people (or rather, the great-great-great-great descendants of the people) who sold the people you've never known into slavery. For blacks in America, that will likely mean complaining to their fellow Africans back in the motherland. Good luck with that.

Not to argue but do you disagree? Do you think they should dwell in it forever?

I understand that its "not that easy" but isn't that what obama, operah and many blacks have done? Didn't they RISE ABOVE IT?

My Irish family was nowhere near this place at any time of slavery...what do I owe black people? nothing...

I think they would also have to travel back to Africa and speak to the decedents of there own people that originally traded the slaves for bread and wine.

Jesus Christ, where am I stating that you or anyone else "owes" black ppl something? The mere fact that you feel the need to write that tells me I'm wasting my time. Fvcking pathetic.

I'm done entertaining this inane dialogue.

Re-reading that I can see how my last sentence looked as if it was directed towards you...it was not.

I didnt say that you stated anything about anything I asked you a question.

Ill ask again

"Not to argue but do you disagree? Do you think they should dwell in it forever?

This reads like a rhetorical question, being that the answer is so obvious. No.

Am I saying it's not possible? No.
