That is why the US will always be behind because we look to the past instead of the future.





That is not at all what I said. The Germans are very sensitive to what has gone on in the past, so much so that they have made many things that remind one of the racism that existed in their past illegal. However, the Germans do not pay teachers billions to think up such garbage as "white privilege". Instead they spend billions on engineering research, which is one big reason why their economy is the strongest in Europe, and one of the strongest in the world.

Black people in the US would be much better off if our government spent the money on jobs and education, instead of the government throwing that money away on sociologists to dream up ways that white people should be shameful for what some white people did to blacks 150 years ago. It only causes racial hatred, and causes blacks to look to the past, not to the future. Such garbage offers no plan to help black people prosper and to make a better future for themselves.
Let's not get too far off topic here but really, how much more money do we need to spend? So many jobs already have a non-white hiring preference that it is very clear that nothing will stop the whinning. Enough is enough. Respect is earned not bought by tax dollars.

I don't know about off topic; I would think that the moderator would inform me about that. I answered the ridiculous post about "white privilege" because it is pure garbage, a figment of the wild imagination of a lazy, money hungry, sociology teacher.

I don't know how much more money we need to spend, but just about any way that money is spent would be preferable to paying a stinking liberal teacher to dream up more garbage phrases to shame whites and to make blacks hate whites. I wasn't even thinking about a non white hiring preference; that is your suggestion.

For the record, I care nothing about Sterling. I believe Jay Z influences more people than Sterling and it's interesting to see how the media treats similar issues that don't involve a white person.
White men complaining about racism is so strange to me.

Why is that strange? It cuts both ways.

"Whites" don't have a history of "raping, killing, kidnapping, lynching, etc"

To suggest that white people, as a group, are "rapists, killers, kidnappers, etc" is . . . racist.

I think maybe what you were trying to say would, in a non-racist way, sound something like, "rapists, killers and kidnappers have a history of raping, killing and kidnapping."

No, I don't think so. Anyone who rants about "white privilege" is not going to talk in a non-racist way.

Did you know that medallion was a symbol of racism before it was reported by the press.

Do you really think Jay Z goes to the mall and shops for his own clothes and accessories? More likely he puts on whatever shows up when he wakes up each morning. I'd be willing to bet that he had no clue what he was wearing but didn't want to look ignorant to its meaning so he gave a non-answer.
