Racial Group Guilt

This is just to gauge how you feel about racial group guilt when it comes to politics and cultural topics. Has the media or any organization ever made you feel that you couldn't debate about the topic of race because of the specific race you belong to?

Funny, Oprah is arguably one of the richest women in the world but yet finds racism everywhere Obama would never be president if the majority of whites did not vote for him. Goes to show, the victim mentality never ends

She is on overseas tour promoting her new book and telling them all that the people in the US that disagree with BHO are doing so because they are prejudice.

Oprah Winfrey has been a prominent supporter of Barack Obama. She thinks that both he and the Office of President have been treated with contempt because of the colour of his skin. “There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

Yes it's nice to see the free advertising that an award-winning music and film producer, columnist and author can get out of you R1KRA8 but what are your personal thoughts about the topic?

@R1KRA8- is there a point you would like to make?

One fellow was arrested and charged with a Hate Crime. He was African American and the assaults were against Jews.

Not exactly "racial group guilt" but this quote from a letter to the editor at N&S is the kind of crap I'm talking about, "Not one Muslim has spoken out against 9-11 and many other attacks, and now they are planning a 1 million man march on Washington to show our abuse of them."

I've known many Muslims that were horrified by what happened. What does these people want? All Muslim-Americans to go on tv and give some kind of proclamation that they don't agree with what happened on 9/11?

I guess after that we can have all Americans of German heritage to publically denounce Nazism afterwards.

fred it is nice to know that you think of me. i had hoped it would not have been attached to those particular traits. nonetheless, your class-disparity reason has a slight flaw in that even in "high-class" you can have zero class. to me it is more of a character issue. one does not need money to have manners and an amicable demeanor. the problem people have with stereotypes, such as the one you espoused, would be more legitimate if they were not perpetuated and continued by people. the lines between prejudices and preferences get blurred by those that feel they are above the act but are oblivious to their own "prejudices". i have them and you have tehm...it seems to depend on what is socially acceptable at the time as to who is the bad guy (or girl or whatever surgery has made you). btw, have a chat with charlie rangel....i find the term "Cracker" offensive unless it is offered with a bowl of soup, chili, or chowder. well i gotta go get my baby-mama to wa

@Fred- I can tell you that this thread wasn't started as ,"a handy outlet for racists who want to say racist stuff but don't want anyone calling them "racists"". Rural folk like you and I know better.

oneill - Why don't you invite your buddy, The REVEREND Jesse Jackson, over so you two can work on the problem (you'll have to make sure he's not strategizing about how to remain looking pious while explaining a extra-marital child AGAIN).

I would suggest you include The REVEREND Al Sharpton, but I figure by know his antics could even embarrass you.

If they haven't yet, wait till enough people make the connection between Sharpton, the promotion of L'il Wayne by a company that Sharpton has a financial stake in, L'il Wayne's promotion of a 'buzz' concoction (know as "syrup" or "Lean") and that Trayvon Martin had two-thirds of the ingredients to make on his person at the time of his death.

If I were Al Sharpton, I'd prefer that information went unnoticed too.

Raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that, again, it is a personal decision. A Black Commentator on CNN, Don Lemon, over the weekend said that young Black men could do a couple of things to start with to start to change things: 5. Pull up your pants; 4. Stop using the “N word”; 3. Respect where you live (this includes not littering. Don said while living in white communities, he rarely saw it but living in Harlem now, he sees it all the time); 2. Finish high school and; 1. Stop having children out of wedlock.

thanks for expanding on your post beright. you identified "urban blacks", primarily,followed by latinos and Muslims, as example of "certain groups" who fuel racial discontent by way of your collective view of their societal expectations on this American society. am I in the ballpark?

beright...for some equality is not only not enough but also not what they expected. the same can be said for many things one may desire or think they deserve if nothing for the sake of mere existence.

Other people who are now entitled are Latinos who demand amnesty, health care, drivers licenses and other benefits while being here illegally. Muslims are entitled to multiple prayer breaks at work .

For Clarity, mod, I was speaking about urban blacks and those that reinforce that mentality like Jesse and Al.
