When one conveys certain things, particularly of such gravity, should one not then appropriately cite sources, authorities...

Quote from: "VanReal"I'm not sure this is as much about equality as it is a glaring difference between cultures and evidence that the races are still divided, even if only by themselves.My son had a baby sitter from Trinidad years ago that did not understand the black white thing in America. She was black her neighbor was white and they called her "Auntie". The fact that we were so different from one another here in the States was confusing to her.I look around Dallas and you can drive through a neighborhood and see that we've even moved to neighborhoods with the same races. There is an area that is primarily asian, another that's black, another that's white, and others are Mexican. Of course you go one block you have another set of people. My neighborhood is actually very mixed in race and ages and we all do just fine. We are all still very different, doesn't really have anything to do with equality but rather the fact that we don't see ourselves as Americans but rather identify with our races first, as we do others.
Quote from: "Sophus"It's interesting that we can have a United Negro's College Fund and All Black Churches etc, etc. But if an All White Church or National White's College Fund was established it would be deemed racist before you could say "Mississippi hot dog."
Quote from: "chuff"They now demand race-based privileges instead of detracting race-based punishments.

It's all still wrong.
Quote from: "curiosityandthecat"Obviously no one read the White Whine article I linked. I'll summarize the relevant point to this: nearly every other college fund and church IS a National White College Fund or a White Church.
