It is sad to say, but many blacks (certainly not all) in America first consider skin color when issues come up. They are the ones that contunue to focus on race and be consumed by the skin color of people. - simply depressing to be that way and thinking about skin color all the time, I'd have to guess. Generally, whites in America are over the race thing, it's many blacks that continue to lag behind. - Jackson and Sharpton leading the way. Like I said - depressing. Blacks have their own organizations, cable networks, awards programs, celebrations, and on and on. It's not white Americans doing this kind of thing!

Most blacks consider whites to be the enemy...they don't listen to us and they reject those who have become successful as "sellouts".

Isn't it amazing that white America generally judges people by the content of their character, while the black race baiters judge people by the colour of their skin. Ironic, isn't it?
When the House voted last Thursday to find Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress, members of the Congressional Black Caucus walked out.

Why is the Black Caucus trying to make this about race?

It’s about Holder’s refusal to turn over Justice Department documents requested by the House Oversight and Government Committee in its investigation of the “Fast and Furious” operation.

“Fast and Furious” was a “gun-walking” operation conducted by the Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). ATF would allow known smugglers to purchase arms from dealers in Arizona with...
