Let us hide our heads in the sand. For centuries-around the world-the lighter your skin, the higher your rank on the social scale. Mexicans pick on those among them with darker skins. African-American students attending schools where the majority of the population are Native American, are picked on because their skin is darker. In the old cowboy movies, the villain wore a black stetson. In Shakespeares' plays, the blonde was the good girl-the one all the guys wanted. In royalty Europe, a tan was to be avoided as it indicated that you were so poor, you had to do outside work. Is this right? Of course not. Look at our hsitorical biases and acknowledge they are there. Then work towards eradicating them Every culture has biases

Instilling "white guilt" is the name of the game. Just like the university in WI that "makes" kids believe the white advantage garbage. I've known good folks from all sectors and bad folks from all sectors. Character ethical behavior and a good moral compass. Not to mention an actual effort to attain what you want/need.

Not quite. I've used the same tack successfully. There are plenty of people in America's non-white communities who are as sick of the race-baiting as you are.

An increasing number of blacks appear to finally be getting angry with Obama. It’s just too bad it took four years and voting for Obama a second time for blacks to realize the president doesn’t care about their interests. Immigration and the president’s determination to get legislation passed granting amnesty to an estimated 11-20 million illegal aliens seems to be the straw that broke black liberals’ backs.

Recently some Black Americans have been calling into black talk radio shows like “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton, complaining immigration is not an important issue to them. This is despite Al Sharpton’s...
