Hell I'm not even responsible for the actions of my living relatives, much less some bonehead in a powdered wig that may or may not have been my ancestor.
If I were wight in today's society I'd give back to black people knowing what they are going through/have been going through is a direct cause of what I benefit from because it is the right thing to do. As someone who was raised in a privledge community I can't say I can identify with the majority of black peoples struggles when it comes to poverty, but I understand and recognize that it's not their fault, and it will take a lot more than protesting to fix; ie, policy change. I'd like to be apart of that battle. If you don't want to be a good person then it's fine, no one will hold it against you, but stay nuetral and don't fight against an equal allocation of resources for all people no matter the color.

Thanks for letting us know that you have no moral compass. Your ancestors would be proud.

Still no. No amount of trying to insult people or guilt them (and failing completely) makes this a good idea.

Most of my Hispanic friends consider me a minority?

I think it depends on Asian group though. Southeast Asians, especially here in California, are poor. There's a huge Asian gang problem in places like Fresno, Long Beach, Oakland, etc.

Hell, I almost got jumped into one of those fine organizations myself. Lucky for me, I had a girlfriend who was white, and they weren't having any of that.

OP, here are some other examples that may be more realistic in terms of the bottom line: Urban-Suburban Interdistrict Transfer Program

I expect (white) people from NJ to be against this program because a lot of them come from blue collar white families that the upper class gave privileges to over the black slave/indentured class at the time, in order to nullify them from partering with the blacks rebelling aginst the America upper class. Please read about the beacons rebellion. Whites are not inherently racist, everything comes from something, and the tension between blacks and whites came from a caste system created to make the land owners keep their wealth. The racist attitudes/white supremacy came as a unintended consequence of this decision by the upperclass to split the races by class.

Blue collar? Do you know anything about NJ and its wealth stats?

Then lets see the difference in "work ethic". I bet there would be none. Then all the opinions about blacks or hispanics, "picking themselves up from their boot straps" would be void, and people can finally admit that the reason for the wage gap and crime statistics are due to discrimination and nothing else.

Off of that I'd like to conclude by saying, people are not complex, they are reactionary, if a policy change happens people will react accordingly, cultural differences probably account for .00000001% of the difference between peoples interests and how hard they work and propaganda will trump culture any day, so if society keeps telling blacks they're criminals then the one's with no guidance will turn to crime, if society keeps telling white women that they're the creme de la creme of mate selection then they'll keep acting like they're preyed upon (even if they're not). It's simple to be honest.
