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?

"steady diet of victimhood for years"

But have european americans been fed a steady diet of guilt for years? So much so that we cannot bring ourselves to actively debate the topic on race?

sorry for the multiple typos: I think there is an entitlement mentality that plays a significant role in racial tensions in this country where certain groups believed they are owed something. This also plays into the class warfare thing also.

Well, yes Kendall. However,more times than not,there was no significant difference in the shades of skin.

In many cases I would agree but there are those that can say stuff and get away with it. Look at Bill Cosby a few years back. He was highly critical of modern urban black culture in the US. He said what a lot of Americans (of all races) would want to say but were too afriad to. While I underastand not wanting to conform to society if you feel you would lose a bit of your culture, but not adapting at some level to society is a bad idea. If you are going to dress like a thug, talk like a thug and even act like one most of the time...shockingly...people will think you are a thug and not someone trying to live up to their culture.

Check out the reporting on mediamatters today.

It is not possible to have an open discussion in the media today. How can you have an open discussion when you have five or six people on a panel “discussion” and they “all” are on the left or right and they agree?

I saw one panel discussion on race over the weekend and all 5 panelists were black.

It would be more productive to have a 50/50 split on a panel and let everyone get their point in without being yelled at by the likes of Chris Mathews who apologized the other day on behalf of all whites. What the heck was that about?

I ask this because in my lifetime it seems to me that when you are not African-American, it's not that acceptable for you to comment or debate the topic of race. Even when it came down to the Zimmerman trial, their were those that made it out to be that the 6 women on the jury didn't have the right to preside over the verdict because they weren't black. Persoanlly I find this insulting and does nothing to help in the cause of equality. But what are you experiences?
