I'm not crying and I am not swallowing that flawed post either. It makes no sense whatsoever. Money made by one generation means nothing unless the next generation knows how to manage it. Most slave owners lost everything in the Civil War. You are not living with reality. Your hatred is coloring your brain. Slavery ended in the 1860's. Nobody living today can realistically use slavery as an excuse.

NAFTA is the reason for most poverty in America today plus the illegals we are all privileged to support.

Inheridated? -- I'm sure Mr. Chandler wouldn't know what to make of your choice of words.

Well; give a kid a stupid sounding name IS asking for trouble down the line. That ALSO goes for giving an Anglo Saxon name to a kid born and raised in Mexico while living there. That kid will probably have lots of trouble because of THEIR culture; it ain't fair but, it is what it is.

Many post slavery policies existed to keep inequality in place. I also highly doubt the average black person is saying, "Oh, well I can't get a job because my ancestor was a slave." Pointing out that racism exists does not mean someone is pointing a finger at a guilty white person.

Asian immigrants Latino immigrants have a completely different history from blacks and say Native Americans.

Native Americans also have a high rate of poverty, children born out of wedlock, alcoholism, high school dropouts. Gee I wonder why. Lolol. If you want to find a group that has conditions somewhat similar to blacks you can look at this group. Comparing them to immigrants from China, Italy, Poland, or Mexico is not only pretty stupid, but makes little sense. I also doubt a Native American is blaming a white person for the conditions and experiences of their group.

Referencing history when done correctly makes more sense but many are too simple to really do it correctly.
Hold it right there, please!

It was NOT just Black people in parts of the US who had a bad time of it. Do you remember reading about "Irish need not apply", NO Jews and so on in the 20th Century. Hint: all of those people are now counted as anglo white in 2015 so things change.

Some people HATE the truth.

That is called racism and is what white privilege means. People shouldn't have to name their kids white sounding names to protect them from racism. What happens when blacks start giving their kids white people names, how will whites be racist to them then?

Probably sartorial discrimination. White people have SERIOUS issues with clothing discrimination! I can at least admit that and see it for myself.

next.
I'm expecting you to believe in equal justice under the law.

I am interested in reading about the "huge advantage in the public sector" that Blacks have. Please cite some fairly neutral sources.

When I get pulled over or audited its because the color of my skin and not because I was speeding or didn't file correctly. The black experience.

I'm black so I can't arrange to be in the company of other blacks most of the time.

Now this is just ridiculous.

Gender - By being born cisgendered, you aren't worried that the restroom or locker room you use will invoke public outrage.

But that is the mindset of the perpetual victim. Life's unfair because I'm not someone else.
To be honest with you, at least on City-Data, the perpetual victim seems to be white conservatives.

There's favoritism towards minorities as well. It cuts many ways. Some blacks probably are stereotyped. But dress and manner of speech, not just color, factor into that.
