“White Privilege” Exposed

I hate when the race-baiters blame everything on so-called "white privilege". I also hate when people on the other extreme try to engage them by talking about how bad some black people are and how biased the media are. I just wish we would stop dividing people by race for purpose of analysis as if whatever is done by a black/white man is done because he is black/white. It poisons the discussion from the outset. Just look at persons who exhibits the behavior, regardless of race, and look for their common characteristics. You might find out that there is something else at play. I do look in the mirror often. I am a retired successful businessman, proud (native-born) American, born and raised in Alabama and, incidentally, a descendant of Africans, among others.

Maybe that's because you group people by race for purpose of your analysis. That does not mean that race was the determinant of the behavior you are measuring. The group you call "black" is made up of rich, poor, educated, uneducated, informed, and uninformed. Perhaps you should look at people of all races who exhibit this behavior and see what characteristics they have in common. You might be surprised. Stop assuming that race is the determining factor. I ask no more.

What Larry wrote was the problem with Paul, not "the problem with the blacks." Don't generalize. There are no doubt many whites with similar problems, just with different so-called "barriers, who "eat their own" and cop out. Most blacks take responsibility for their lives and actions. Blackness per se does not cause the others to do otherwise.

If it is not "legal tender", meaning it must be accepted as payment of debts, how can you trust its acceptance in your next transaction. Not for me. Not yet. But continued debasement of the dollar, albeit "legal tender", might make me reconsider.
I think that this language was a deliberately planted “poison pill” for Republican governors. If those states refused to set up exchanges, the Dems would blame the resulting high premiums on the state governments. But it could backfire if the Supreme Court agrees with the Court of Appeals and thus blow a big hole in the Affordable Care Act. However, I would not be surprised to see the Supreme Court overturn the Court of Appeals, rescuing the administration and the IRS interpretation, by a vote of 5-4, with Chief Justice Roberts voting with the majority.

This article is offensive and obviously intended to stir animosity. It is not worthy of Townhall.
