For several decades, a few black scholars have been suggesting that the vision held by many black Americans is entirely wrong. Dr. Shelby Steele, a scholar at Stanford Universitys Hoover Institution, said: Instead of admitting that racism has declined, we (blacks) argue all the harder that it is still alive and more insidious than ever. We hold race up to shield us from what we do not want to see in ourselves.
Dr. John McWhorter, professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University, lamented that victimology, separatism, and anti-intellectualism underlie the general black communitys response to all race-related issues, adding that these three thought patterns impede black advancement much more than racism; and dysfunctional inner cities, corporate glass ceilings, and black educational underachievement will persist until such thinking disappears.
In the 1990s, Harvard professor Orlando Patterson wrote, America, while still flawed in its race relations
is now the least racist white-majority society in the world; has a better record of legal protection of minorities than any other society, white or black; (and) offers more opportunities to a greater number of black persons than any other society, including all those of Africa.

If there was no need for welfare there’d be no need for Democrats.
A lot of money has been made off of sustaining the “racial devide” whether actual or fabricated.
Dr. McWhorter is a national treasure on the order of Walter E. Williams and Thomas Sowell. Too bad few blacks have ever heard of these gentlemen, because the media ignores them in favor of the Marxists and bomb-throwers.
There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. ― Booker T. Washington
Nothing's changed in over a hundred years.
If a genie were to suddenly appear on the steps of the Capitol Building and say : “I will now snap my fingers and racism will disappear FOREVER”, he would be stabbed by 100 Democrats before he could move his hand half an inch....
This is one of the reasons that the dems have abandoned even lying to Blacks, and trying to replace them with illegal aliens.
Blacks are beginning to wake up. It’s happening slowly, but some are starting to realize that they’ve been useful idiots for keeping the dems in power. They’re starting to realize that the dems never cared about them, only getting their votes.
They would die without it.
I blame welfare for the general corruption.
Whenever I see pictures of black society pre-1960 I marvel at its vibrancy. Somehow they transcended racism, Jim Crow, etc. They seemed self-reliant.
“Whenever I see pictures of black society pre-1960 I marvel at its vibrancy.”
When someone is fighting you, it awakens the instinct to fight back and overcome. When someone is coddling you, it makes you lazy and complacent. Our society’s treatment of blacks just went from one extreme to the other and never achieved any healthy balance.
Blackswe all should take heed of Alexander Hamiltons advice:The republican principle demands that the deliberate sense of the community should govern the conduct of those to whom they intrust the management of their affairs; but it does not require an unqualified complaisance to every sudden breeze of passion or to every transient impulse which the people may receive from the arts of menjournalists and other Democrats , who flatter their prejudices to betray their interests.
