The Myths That Divide Us- How Lies Have Poisoned American Race Relations.
by John Perazzo World Studies Books, 1998

Although I think that there are a lot of minorities that are aware of the venom, and want to have little to do with it.  So I think that under a superficiality of resentment, there is a deeper reality of people wanting to get on with their life.  Note that that doesn't mean they won't take advantages when they find them, preferential treatment for minorities enrolling in college for example.  This is a lot of what the "fascists" are objecting to, which just because they're not popular, doesn't mean that they don't have a point.  The antifascists are elitists defending a system which is unfair in minor ways, but not unfair to them.  They are the cadre fighting the good fight, all fun and games, even when someone gets run over.  Race based scholarships and enrollment is racist, especially when rich blacks (or Hispanics) benefit, whereas poor whites (and Asians) who do not have any societal advantages don't get consideration.  Scholarships and enrollment should have a _needs_ based affirmative action.  But of course, there is no power and benefits to be hoarded that way for the democrats and the black congressional caucus to bestow upon their people.  And that is what really is happening, patronage.  Furthermore, when democrats loose an election, the black caucus rarely looses in black districts, so the black caucus gains in clout, and can appoint a Black Muslim, for a democratic chair.



I'm against political correctness in all it's forms.

Men are men and women are women, regardless of race colour or creed, and mutual respect is due to all.

I don't believe in affirmative action or positive discrimination. People should vie for positions, and be selected on their qualifications, experience and suitability, not on their race, gender or religeon.

To do otherwise is to personally denigrate the individual, emphasising that they aren't really good enough, but have been granted the position due to the factors mentioned above.

That police are more likely to come into contact with Afro/Americans, Hispanics etc., rather than white Americans, IMO, is probably because those groups are the most disadvantaged within the community and see crime as the best way out.

We have a similar problem, but not on nearly a grand scale with Aboriginal people who still haven't caught up to the 21st Century, through no fault of their own, and turn to alcohol and sniffing petrol. They also, largely, see police as the enemy.

Whether or not lies are the basis for the current state of racial relations in the USA, is a good point. Both sides, no doubt capitalise on the negatives and use them as propoganda. It seems that many Americans, especially in southern states, have not conceptualised the fact that Afro/Americans are human beings first, Americans second, and are entitled to all of the rights and benefits that the country can offer-the same as any WASP.

Groups such as ANTIFA, Aryan Nation and so on, generate much more attention that perhaps they're worth, but serve to drive a very large wedge between the different racial groups.

Blame, if that's what it is, can be attributed pretty equally among the racial groups, but education and understanding seems, to me, to be the only solution.


I often wonder why I try.
