I find this discussion interesting. The one fact that most people miss when talking about other groups is it is not about race but about culture. It is a cultural thing and not a race thing. The news papers don't want you to know this. They like the WTBS only tell you what they want you to know.
As far as the cultural thing what is interesting is how the blacks want inclusion into the white culture yet want an exclusion for them to have a separate standard that is accepted by all. What has been mentioned here is an example of this. Add to the fact that they have BET, NAACP, Affirmative Action to set aside jobs/education just for them yet scream when they are excluded from anything. This actually works against them (their culture) in the long run. An example is the education. It has been 50-40 years since integration of the schools, yet the drop out rate and standard is worse than when schools were segregated. True it has helped a few and I am glad of it but the big picture is that the programs designed for them have hurt and polarized them from other groups (white, Asian etc). Why would you want to polarize yourself from the people you want to have inclusion to?
One other thing that I can not figure out is if you call a black person COLORED they get mad, yet they are proud of being a member of the NAAC(colored)P???????
