i thinks hes upset because of the flack he got from his hispanics thread (which i thought was curious and not inflammatory).

@ bajan-yankee, maybe there are parts of the hispanic culture that we dont understand the same way that they dont understand all aspects about us ?

also many of the respondents of the other thread seem to be from the west coast. it seems like they dont have ethnic-enclaves (segregation [sic]) like we do ?

Lets turn all those questions around and ask white people.
When will whites stop atending white colleges like UGA,Swarthmore,Morehead State,etc)
When will whites start listening to more Rand B instead of country music and metal?
Why cant they simply adopt American culture as their own?

Yeh I just dont get it.He just said how "African"Americans should just be American but basically dismissed the cultural attributes as anythng but American.I guess he thinks Rand B came from Africa.

Dude those schools were not segregated!The schools you called Mainstream" were segregated.Black schools have NEVER been segregated like those schools so what are you talking about?

Have you ever even been on a HBCU campus?Morehouse college had a white valedictorian a few years ago.How is that racist?
