No I'm not black lol. Which is why I don't mean to speak on behalf of black men, but I was just stating my observations.

Not the case in most states

Yes, whitey did. It's a good way to keep everybody in their "proper" place.

Easy to answer...

There is a minority of the majority who are race obsessed. They are in a panic that they will become a minority soon, probably because they are worried that they will soon feel what they have been dishing out through economic, policing, and judicial oppression for centuries.

And even though they are a minority, they are very vocal and very visible.

Most other people just live their lives.

Trying at justification=/= invention

Those "scientific" papers were after the exploitation started to lessen the guilt/resistance to such actions

Tbf, this particular news is interesting. What we are seeing here is a major demographic shift in a short period of time. When whites become a minority in the US; huge cultural change will most certainly have occurred. Some have termed the US as the new Latin American country. If Sweden become 40% arbab or Asian in 40 years, I guarantee everyone there would be talking about it. It's interesting. Not saying the US isn't race obsessed, but I don't think talking about this is indicative of that.

What are you talking about? Nobody is saying that someone invented racism. They are talking about who came up with the idea of classifying people into different races and their ulterior motives for doing it, be they concious or subconcious. For you to have read the article and derived that from it is telling.
