I'm sorry to disappoint any black Americans out there who believe the white man is putting you down. But you can do every f***ing thing we can.
Don't misenterperate my post, I'm not saying that more could be done, just that stopping providing aid will leave inequality, which is what the letter the op quoted seemed to be about.

Take note that all my educated black friends all agree that people who go around saying the white man is putting anyone down are completely off their rocker.
the system works then? arguably their education is helped by the welfare/support that they or their parents or grandpartents recieved.

would that be a terribly bad thing?

Also I have found that most black people don't like "African American"... Most of them are not even African let alone been to Africa.
well tough titty to them, it's a description, it describes herritage, just like italian america, german american, polish american irish american, hispanic american etc...

not being directly from africa, or not having been to africa does nothing to change their genes

Blacks are the majority in the police force and population of Chicago.

Not by much, but they are aprox 37% of the population, and whites are 36% I think.

This is a capitalist country. Sure we come from different backgrounds, but ultimately you do with your life, what you choose to.

It is NOT my responsibility to lift you up, buy you food and pay your gas bill. If you don't want to get off your ass, take advantage of our military pay, the Job Corps, making a life for yourself, etc. DO NOT come to me wanting help. I have zero sympathy.

All I have to say, to any race, White or Black; get off your lazy ass and do something with your life.

Our country is suffering from laziness and procrastination, people are getting used to the government taking care of them, they count on welfare checks, if they get free money, why should they go find something else?

Our country needs to be revamped back to capitalism. We're slowly leaning towards socialism, the government is beginning to take care of just about everything. Hell, you could live off the government nowadays.

Well if someone has a disadvantage then another has an advantage doesn't he?
Therefore being "better" in a way, not in a literal sense...

Heavens no! It was only something I had heard. I am hesitant to call it an actual fact though. (not sure it's true or false)

Huh? I was only saying from my personal experience black men/women or "African-Americans" prefer to be called black. Did not mean anything by it, was just on topic, so I stated it.
But I guess to include from where you are coming from on that. We don't say "English-Americans", "German-Americans", "Caucasian-Americans", etc.
At least not in the average conversation. For example one may rarely say "Hispanic-American". But for the most part people usually state where they are from or what they are.
I'm American, I'm Irish, I'm from Ireland, etc.

Along the lines of documents and such. Maybe we need a skin tone question?
But once again we are segregating the people.

But hell, what are you going to do? This is America! Home to all Immigrants, how can there not be "groups" if you will.

Interestingly enough I know of one very small one called NSHMBA (National Society for Hispanic MBA's) but not without being a much much larger one organized by the same organization called the National Society for Black MBA's (I don't think NSBMBA is the acronym).

Now I have a second part to say addressing what root has said. First, this is the best or at least one of the best countries for blacks. Yes everyone can complain about slavery which is legitamate. However, the entire world endorsed slavery, and most black slaves were enslaved by their fellow blacks in Africa! Second, America is a capitalist country where hard work and dedication is what gets you somewhere. Not all black people are disadvantaged and not all whites are more advantaged than black people. If you are black so what? Many people are oppressed much more than blacks in America. No one should be able to whine all their life about not having the stuff that other people have just because of the color of their skin. There are very successful black people and very successful white people which means you can be successful if you try! You should not just be able to stay in your home and suck up the tax dollars of other people just because you refuse to get a job because you say you are being discriminated against. Third, there are black Founding Fathers of the United States and whites. I don't think that in Africa blacks are eating McDonalds with the tax dollars of white people, and if there are how come I keep seeing charity appeals directed towards Americans to give food to Blacks in Africa. If Africa is the best place for Blacks how come there is genocide and Blacks are still enslaved by other blacks in Africa?

As a comment on my post, I am not a racist. I do not hate black people but I do feel that America is a place where people can succeed regardless of race.
