American Pastor Billy Graham Has Died


, , , , , ,

From USA Today:

The world’s best-known evangelist, the Rev. Billy Graham, died Wednesday. He was 99.

From the gangly 16-year-old baseball-loving teen who found Christ at a tent revival, Graham went on to become an international media darling, a preacher to a dozen presidents and the voice of solace in times of national heartbreak. He was America’s pastor.

Graham died at his mountain home in Montreat, N.C., where he retired in 2005 after nearly six decades on the road calling people to Christ at 417 all-out preaching and musical events from Miami to Moscow. His final New York City crusade in 2005 was sponsored by 1,400 regional churches from 82 denominations. In recent years, he was plagued by various ailments, including cancer and pneumonia.

He took his Bible to the ends of the Earth in preaching tours he called “crusades.” Presidents called on Graham in their dark hours, and uncounted millions say he showed them the light.

“The GREAT Billy Graham is dead,” President Trump tweeted Wednesday. “There was nobody like him! He will be missed by Christians and all religions. A very special man.”

I DON’T Hate White People. I Really DON’T.


, , , , , , ,

My blog does not, in any way, shape or form, endorse harm, violence or genocide to anyone, including white people, and from now on, anyone who makes a comment that alludes to it in any way will not pass.

I do NOT hate white people. I won’t water it down by saying that some of my friends are white, even though they are. Still, that doesn’t mean I should keep my mouth shut, or in this case my fingers away from the keyboard, whenever white racism shows out.

xPraetorius, the author of his blog the Praetorian Writers’ Group, insists that I’m racist against white people as he continues to reference me in his posts. I took it upon myself to confront him in his corner of the blogosphere to clear some things. That’s why I’m talking about him here and now.

Even though I admit that I have a racist mindset, it’s more prejudice than racist as I have NO power to suppress an entire group based on the false concept of race. But as you recall, xPraetorius doesn’t want to hear any of that. He frankly doesn’t want to hear anything I have to say to him, because everything I say goes into the hogwash trash bin of close-mindedness if it doesn’t fit into his conservative folder.

Through xPraetorius’ “conservative” reasoning, I’m a leftist by default, a foot soldier for a complex known as the race grievance industry. Any proof of anti-black racism from literally anywhere is dismissed on the spot, because they’re simply not true, according to conservatives, including black conservatives. My arguments that anti-black racism is still a major issue is – in short – stupid and baseless. He knows me and black people more than we know ourselves, and any attempts to summarize who or what he is just wrong. He lost out of a mortage opportunity because, as he says, a black woman denied it due to him being white. He believes anti-white racism is more acceptable and widespread. He won’t let go of a comment by diaryofanegress’ comment that he says hints towards white genocide, and wants me to denounce it in my blog for his satisfaction. Any accusation against him is wrong while any accusation against you is right. Nuff said. The reason why he was banned from at least two blogs – one of them being mine – is that we won’t admit he’s right, our arguments are weak, and we treated him like crap while he was “respectable”, nothing to do with his tone which I personally find condescending or that nothing he says is substantial or new. And by kicking him out, we’re cowards who are against free speech.

If xPraetorius reads this, he will likely select everything he concludes is wrong in his own blog while probably saying something along the lines that he likes me, but I libel against him. Whether he does or not is irrelevant, but his online attitudes towards liberals as seen in his own blog could be seen as poisonous conspiracy thinking, a habit the right seems to exhibit when things don’t go their way. Blogging about the pain and horrors that are born from white racism seems to be one of those things white conservatives think is racist itself. xPraetorius somehow found out about my blog and took it upon himself to comment on it. Still, he insists that it was my fault for making my blog public in the first place. Had it not been out there in the open, he wouldn’t have left a comment in the first place. Basically, that’s his reasoning.

xPraetorius will protest that as well. He claims he’s part of an “increasingly influential think tank” of at least five writers, one of them being a black woman that all write exactly the same. He also claims that he has a lot of friends, those whom I also offended by banning them. Strange how they all had the same IP address which translates into using the same computer, and they almost never comment on his blog at all. Nevertheless, he insists they’re all different people, and that they’re all his “friends”.

Whatever the case, xPraetorius doesn’t think his tone is condescending, nor does he agree that how he comments is nothing unique among many white people in conversations about race. In as many words as possible, it’s clear he’s not about having such a discussion as he’s more about telling me what to think and/or feel. Though, he would never say it outright, it’s heavily implied – sometimes repeatedly – by the way he comments.

It’s no use trying to converse with an individual that doesn’t want to converse. So, it’s no use to tell xPraetorius or any other white-minded person who prefers I shut up and just accept that I’m racist against white people and “part of the problem”. They seem to prefer that you are so that they can tell you that you are to prove a baseless point, because you blog about stuff white people do, and that – in turn -makes you a racist.

Blogging about white racism doesn’t make you a racist, nor does it mean you hate white people. In some cases, it’s never about white people as it’s more about racism in favor of whites and the annoying, infuriating and devastating it’s numerous forms and incidents they have on nonwhites.

If xPraetorius was serious about joining in the conversation about race and racism, he should’ve responded more like, “I may not totally understand what you’re saying or what you’ve been through, but I will listen and learn as best as I can so I can get a better understanding and grow as a person” or “I may not completely agree with what you’re saying, but I respect it just the same and maybe I could one day get a better grasp at what you’re saying.” But he might consider that too “liberal” for him to do. More or less, in his view, it’s hard out there being a straight white male.

Your Thoughts: Black Panther

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a motion picture juggernaut ever since Disney purchased the comic book giant. Also every film has been a cash cow and a ratings success. And now, it struck another gold mine with its latest installation Black Panther.

Have you seen the movie? If so, what did you think? NO SPOILERS PLEASE!

What else is there to say, except FUCK YOU, RACISTS!


, , , , , , ,

I know the title alone will piss off especially the not-racist racists, because I’m going to rant and rave about the subhuman, knuckle-dragging, bitch-ass beta folk who think the straight, Christian white male is the most discriminated category of American citizens. In case they don’t know, yes, I’m referring to the alt-right, white nationalists, far-right or whatever the fuck they wanna call themselves. And if any of them are reading this, allow to me tell you to go fuck yourselves.

Let me explain why I’m heated. America experienced another mass murder caused by a school shooting by a young white male named Nikolas Cruz. It went down last Valentine’s Day in Parkland, Florida when he shot and killed 17 people. As expected, the media went into full “mental illness excuse” mode to explain how this fuck-up could fuck up the lives of many people. But they went into an alternative route to the right as they uncovered his white supremacist past.

They reported that the leader of a Floridan militia group, Republic of Florida, confirmed that Cruz was affiliated with them. Turns out that was a hoax as the bastard had no connections with this or any other white nationalist group. The so-called liberal media took the story and ran with it regardless, because a white racist said so without doing what they should’ve fucking done and…I dunno..investigated more! In the end, they ended up retracting their findings.

Now, the shit stains of society predictably want to distance themselves from another shit stain who made the claim that the shit stain was a member of a group of shit stains. How shitty can shit stains get?

Muthafuckas who preach and troll in the name of white supremacy are the first ones to run and hide under the beds under their mothers’ basements whenever their fantasies take a realistic and violent turn. When they preach for toughness, violence, race wars and white genocide, they’re bold. When shit gets real, their comrades turn tail and run. They will lie, create divisions and ruin society, because whiteness – white maleness must be preserved even if they have to sacrifice their own to keep it running.

So, I say fuck them! Fuck them for all the shootings and killings they’ve done! Fuck them for creating lies to tear down any hint of racial and gender progress! Fuck them for their toxicity and zero-sum philosophy of hating others is showing pride in themselves! And fuck any and everyone who tries to so much as defend these assholes and look pathetic while doing it!

And while I’m at it, fuck you Chuck C. Johnson, Paul Nehlen, Jim Hoft, Gavin McInnes, Mike Cernovich, Mike Enoch Peinovich, Milo Yiannopolis, Tim “Baked Alaska” Gionet, Greg Johnson, Paul Kersey, Lauren Southern, Stephen Molyneux, Nick Fuentes, Carl Benjamin, Michael Savage, Richard Spencer, Paul Joseph Watson, Roaming Millennial, Steve franssen, and any other muthafucker belonging to the alt-right or any other hate group!

Almost forgot. Fuck you to anyone who tries to downplay Cruz’s actions! Fuck you to the leaders , politicians especially, who tell us to pray for the victims’ families while doing nothing and even defending their positions on gun violence and cutting spending on mental health support! And last but not least, fuck you for not giving a fuck about the fact that precious children, once again, have been taken from this world!

I’m sick of these douche bags and their zombie followers and their stupid ass, beta human, reality-fearing, lying asses fearing of an extermination of the white race. Stop taking dumps on society supposedly to protect white people when the only ones destroying it and white people ARE YOU SAD SACK MUTHAFUCKAS.

The Florida School Shooting


, , , , , ,

From the Sun-Sentinel:

Shortly before 5:45 a.m. Thursday, the young man accused in a shooting that left more than a dozen people dead was escorted into Broward’s Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale. Nikolas Cruz was surrounded by Broward Sheriff’s deputies who walked him inside the facility.

Some 15 hours earlier, the deadliest school shooting since Sandy Hook erupted as authorities say a 19-year-old man with a troubled past and an AR-15 rifle stalked the halls of Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Expelled from the school over disciplinary problems, Cruz is accused of squeezing off shot after shot as students took cover under desks, fire alarms blared and teachers barricadedclassrooms. By the time it was over Wednesday, 17 people were dead or dying, and 16 were wounded.

The AR-15 used in the mass shooting was legally bought by Cruz, attorney Jim Lewis told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Cruz already owned the gun when he moved in with his friend’s family in northwest Broward around Thanksgiving, Lewis said. “It was his gun,” Lewis said. “The family made him keep it in a locked gun cabinet in the house but he had a key.”

The family did not see him shooting the AR-15 but did see him shooting pellet guns, Lewis said.

Cruz was arrested off campus and was taken to Broward Sheriff’s Office headquarters in Fort Lauderdale. Although some students described Cruz as a normal teenager, others and some of his neighbors called him strange, troubled and depressed.

At this time, I want to send my condolences to all of those affected by this latest mass murder.

Yes, Africans DID Own White Slaves, BUT…


, , , , , , , ,


xPraetorious, a conservative blogger for the Praetorian Writers’ Group wants me to never forget about African slavery, particularly the part where Africans owned other Africans as slaves. It’s a reminder to black people that at one time, we owned slaves, a point that comes up usually in conversations about race that wold veer off into the direction of one of humanity’s odious practices whenever white racism is discussed. Fellow blogger Abagond coined it the ‘Arab Trader Argument’, a tactic that (mostly) white people use to deviate from the sins of Caucasians by bringing up the sins of other people as if what they did wasn’t as — sinful.

It’s no secret that xPraetorious considers me and the aforementioned Abagond as, as he would put it, “foot soldiers in the nonexistent Race Grievance Industry (RGI)”. We’re apparently part of an anti-white left-wing complex out to destroy the conservative matrix, and judging by how he references us, we’re equivalent to five-star generals to promulgate the ‘hogwash’ notion that there is still racism against blacks. As such, he continues to hang the comment Diaryofanegress made against white people many posts back over my head as if it was the Sword of Damocles.

So, it’s no shock that he would use variants of the argument as a deflection tactic, but he added a spin I never expected, that there were white slaves in Africa.

At first, I was taken aghast by that claim, but eventually, I decided to see for myself if what xPraetorious was being truthful. Sure enough, he was, and it’s not a fabricated right wing-based, Neo-Nazi, race realist lie.

Ancient Origins writes:

Much attention and condemnation has been directed towards the tragedy of the African slave trade, which took place between the 16th and the 19th centuries. However, another equally despicable trade in humans was taking place around the same time in the Mediterranean. It is estimated that up to 1.25 million Europeans were enslaved by the so-called Barbary corsairs, and their lives were just as pitiful as their African counterparts. They have come to be known as the white slaves of Barbary.

However, xPraetorious hasn’t gone much deeper than making the claim. As Swali Africa notes, there’s more to the story than just that one sentence:

The Barbary Coast also known as the Berber Coast was in North Africa and swept across Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and Algeria. This area formed a part of the Ottoman Empire and was host to a multitude of Berber pirates and slave traders who held sway in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean Seas. They also engaged in raids of European coastal cities. This was also the scene of the Barbary Wars which witnessed United States’ first foreign land military operation, when Thomas Jefferson declared war on the Berber pirates which led to the end of piracy in that region. People in this region were majorly African Arabs.

Barbary Pirates also known as Barbary Corsairs were involved in the captivity of European slaves and attacks on European coastal villages. However, just like African slave traders, the most prominent Barbary pirates were indeed European renegades, historian Adrian Tinniswood states. Most of them brought naval expertise to the piracy business. Among these were Henry Mainwaring, Captain Jack Ward, Sinan Reis, and Dragut. There were also a lot of Barbary natives, and Turkish descents who lorded the piracy and slavery business and these included The Barbarossa brothers, Mulai Ahmed er Raisuli, Salih Reis and so on.

These pirates caused terror in the seas, capturing sailors and seamen and selling them off into slavery. Attacks were launched on European and American ships. BBC reports that between 7000 and 9000 British men were taken into slavery by African pirates who plundered British Ships. It was also noted that the corsairs also raided coastal settlements and this was especially rampant in Baltimore, Ireland as well as Devon and Cornwall where British citizens were taken captive by Africans. Captives thus ranged from fishermen, sailors to coastal villagers and were mostly Christian and from impoverished families.

What should be noted is that slavery in that region was less about race and more about religion Also remember, that this is in no way an attempt to minimize the impact, but it’s to make a revelation in a moment of history many don’t know:

In its article titled the White Slaves of Barbary, Ancient Origins, it was stated that”
“In the 13th and 14th centuries, it was Christian pirates, primarily from Catalonia and Sicily that dominated the seas, posing a constant threat to merchants. It was not until the expansion of the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century that the Barbary corsairs started to become a menace to Christian shipping.”

Thus, events in this period may have had a religious undertone as just as Muslim African raiders plundered the soils of European geographies and took home captives, there were reprisal attacks by Christian Europeans who launched attacks on African Muslim soils and took home, thousands of Muslim captives as slaves too. The Knights of Saint Steven captured about 14,000 Muslims between 1568 and 1634, also notable were the Knights of Malta.

However, Robert Davis (the author of the book “Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters”) states in his BBC article British Slaves on the Barbary Coast: “Slaves in Barbary could be black, brown or white, Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Jewish or Muslim. Contemporaries were too aware of the sort of people enslaved in North Africa to believe, as many do today, that slavery, whether in Barbary or the Americas, was a matter of race. In the 1600s, no one’s racial background or religion automatically destined him or her for enslavement. Preachers in churches from Sicily to Boston spoke of the similar fates of black slaves on American plantations and white slaves in corsair galleys; early abolitionists used Barbary slavery as a way to attack the universal degradation of slavery in all its forms”.

Slavery was and — in some parts of the world — still is a testament to human depravity. By bringing up white slavery, xPraetorious does not so much as to try to enlighten me on a history that most left wing news sites won’t dare touch, but to deal in white grievance as he believes that anti-white racism is more prevalent and acceptable. At the same time, he wants to remind me that it was white people who freed my ancestors, but he hasn’t gone into much detail about that either. Again, it seemed more as a self-serving attempt to sway the conversation about race in favor to strengthen the benevolent white savior image. But as Snopes puts it:

Slavery was eliminated in America via the efforts of people of various ethnicities, including Caucasians, who took up the banner of the abolitionist movement. The names of the white leaders of that movement tend to be better known than those of the black leaders, among whom were David Walker, Frederick Douglass, Dred Scott, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Nat Turner, and many others. When Congress passed (and the states ratified) the 13th Amendment in 1865, it was the culmination of many years of work by that multi-racial movement.

If xPraetorious were to read this, there’s a chance he will debunk every single point as he thinks most things I say are wrong and/or stupid. His denial is so robust, he will deny the denial. Yes, it was horrible that people were thrown into enslavement against their will no matter their race or religion. But reducing historical events to short sentence foot notes to merely win arguments and silence any actual grievance is intellectually dishonest at best and morally repugnant at worst.

The SPLC Reveals That the Alt-Right Has Killers In Their Ranks


, , , , , , ,

The alt-right is largely seen as an unfunny biblical joke populated by out-of-touch, angry (mostly) white men who live in the cesspools of the internet, have unimpressive lives and can’t get women to talk to them even if they’re doctors. However, as we’ve seen in Charlottesville in August of 2017, for example. there are members who will make sure no one laughs as they will give no fucks and take out as many people as possible.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has recently written an extensive and informative article about murderous alt-right foot soldiers. They’ve counted over 100 kills done by men influenced and associated by alt-right “philosophies”. Yet, the movement continues to attract impressionable folks. As long as there are reality and morally challenged white guys who feel their world’s being taken away from them and that their racist, misogynistic, xenophobic attitudes are justified due to poisonous entitlement, there are always places for them to feel at home.

The SPLC briefly describes a heinous crime in New Mexico by someone who followed alt-right ideologies:

On December 7, 2017, a 21-year-old white male posing as a student entered Aztec High School in rural New Mexico and began firing a handgun, killing two students before taking his own life.

At the time, the news of the shooting went largely ignored, but the online activity of the alleged killer, William Edward Atchison, bore all the hallmarks of the “alt-right”—the now infamous subculture and political movement consisting of vicious trolls, racist activists, and bitter misogynists.

However, the murderous trend has been traced back to 2014 in Isla Vista, California, and it began with a sad incel (involuntarily celibate) fellow you may have heard of going by the name Elliot Rodger who killed six people and harmed several others before taking his own life. Since that act of terrorism though, there were more killings done by those who supported or were a lot of the alt-right’s hate mongering.

The SPLC Explains:

Like Atchison and Rodger, these perpetrators were all male and, with the exception of three men, all under the age of 30 at the time they are alleged to have killed. The average age of the alt-right killers is 26. The youngest was 17. One, Alexandre Bissonnette, is Canadian, but the rest are American. While some certainly displayed signs of mental illness, all share a history of consuming and/or participating in the type of far-right ecosystem that defines the alt-right…

…the dark engine of the movement is reactionary white male resentment. Alt-right propaganda is designed to nourish the precise grievances recited by the disillusioned and indignant young men that dominate its ranks. It provides a coherent—but malicious—worldview. For a recruit, the alt-right helps explain why they don’t have the jobs or the sexual partners or the overall societal and cultural respect that they believe (and are told) to be rightfully theirs. This appeal is resonating at a moment in the United States when economic inequality is worsening and a majority-minority United States is forecasted for 2044—developments exploited by racist propagandists.

Dogs Hate America? What I Noticed Watching the Puppy Bowl


, , , , ,


I’m still kinda shocked by the underdog win of the Philadelphia Eagles against the New England Patriots at Super Bowl LII. I thought the latter would win another one, but that’s a topic for another time.

I flipped between the Super Bowl and other stations as I’m not a major sports fan. I recently started watching it’s cuter equivalent, Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl. It’s a parody of sorts that feature different puppy breeds from shelters all over the country competing in a football-like game. If you’re not hung up on the rules of the actual game and you love to see puppies and other animals play around, the Puppy Bowl is a special event that will have you going “Awww” every five seconds.

But something serious happened before the start of the game. As they played the National Anthem, the puppies were sitting down. Why weren’t they standing on all fours? Are they disrespecting the flag and thus, are anti-American?

If so, how dare they!? Thinking that you’re cute and cuddly is no excuse to sit while the Star Spangled Banner is playing!

Okay, let me stop. I’m just funnin’ y’all, mostly funnin’ y’all.

Yes, little dogs can sit while the National Anthem plays, because…well, they’re dogs. Sitting comes with the job. They’re not protesting anything like animal abuse. They don’t even know there’s such a thing. But if they did and did it during the National Anthem, would that be considered disrespectful and thus deserves to be condemned sports fans and the general public alike and can no longer play the game due to them standing – or sitting – for what they believe is a vital issue that must be addressed?

It’s highly doubtful since they’re not black people.

Quick Thoughts: A Simple Lesson I Was Taught By My Parents


I just want to tell everyone about something I was taught by my parents. It’s a lesson that never ends whether you’re in school or not. It’s a life lesson that must be held dear if one is to live skeleton-free.

That lesson is simply this. You must be responsible for your actions. If you make a mistake, own up to it and fix it. If you’re in the wrong, act like an adult and admit it. Be honest, and be respectable.

That’s it. Nothing deep. Nothing that requires research. Nothing that has an ulterior motive. It’s just one straightforward lesson in how to live life.  Personal responsibility is a term we give it.

Just thought I write about it.

Tim Wise: White Denial is an American Tradition: It’s Time to Bury It


, , , , ,


Whatever your opinion is on Tim Wise is respected, and noted if need be. He has said and written what black people have said for years, and some people seem to take him more seriously than if a black person said the same thing, more or less, due to him being white and male. He uses the privileges associated with those traits to reach out to those who would likely doubt the same words coming from a black person. However, once – as far as I know – he has slipped up and spoke from that offensive mindset.

Do I still consider him an ally? Yes. Wise should not be shunned completely. He’s not perfect, and I honestly believe that his heart is in the right place.

Wise has written a piece for Medium on white denial and how it’s been a trend ever since – at least – our grandparents were children. Even when it was in-your-face obvious, white people still prefer not to see it.  Here’s an excerpt from his post:

Just to make clear how deluded or disinterested in racial justice most white folks have been, even during times when, in retrospect, racial oppression was obvious, consider the following:

In 1963, a year before the Civil Rights Act was passed, two years before the Voting Rights Act, and five years before the Fair Housing Act, nearly two in three whites told Gallup pollsters that blacks were treated equally in their communities. This, in the same year that Medgar Evers was shot down dead in his driveway in Jackson, Bull Connor plowed tanks through the black community and hosed down children in Birmingham, four young black girls were murdered at the 16th Street Baptist Church there, and George Wallace declared, “segregation today, segregation tomorrow and segregation ‘fahevah’” — a statement that elicited letters of support from whites all across the nation, and not only in the south.

By 1965, the year in which Selma sheriff Jim Clark and his goons beat civil rights marchers on the Edmund Pettus bridge, and Los Angeles police brutality towards black folks touched off the Watts uprising, the share of whites who said blacks were treated equally had risen to nearly 70 percent. In other words, most white Americans thought there was no real need for the Civil Rights Movement, as equal treatment had already been achieved. This is to say that most white folks were utterly deluded about the nation in which they lived.

Even before that, in 1962, 85 percent of whites said that black children had just as good a chance to get a good education as white children. This, despite the fact that most school systems still had not moved towards meaningful integration, let alone equalizing of resources, eight years after the decision inBrown v. Board. While the idea of equal educational opportunity in the early ’60s might strike us now as intrinsically absurd, most whites believed it was a reality, suggesting once again that white America had not even the most fleeting familiarity with their country.

And as for the civil rights movement itself? Although today most view it as a heroic struggle against the self-evident evils of Jim Crow, that certainly isn’t how most whites viewed it when it was happening.

So, for instance, in a Gallup Poll in 1961, six in ten of all Americans said they disapproved of the Freedom Riders: civil rights activists who engaged in direct action to desegregate bus lines throughout the south. Considering that black support for these actions was high — 92 percent of blacks said the movement and Dr. King were either moving at the right speed or too slowly in pushing for change — one can assume that white opposition to the Freedom Riders was probably more than 2:1.

Today, many white folks regard Dr. King as a saint who fought for equality among the races. But back then, most whites felt otherwise:

Another poll that year found that half of whites believed Dr. King was hurting the cause of civil rights, while only a bit more than a third thought he was helping, and in 1967 — before the Fair Housing Act, and when opportunities still were obviously not equal between whites and people of color — nearly 85 percent of all Americans (and likely well over 90 percent of whites) said blacks would be better off just “taking advantage of the opportunities they have already been given” as opposed to protesting. In other words, whites believed blacks should just work harder and stop complaining, even though housing discrimination was rampant and still legal; even though most school systems still had not moved to truly integrate, let alone equalize resources, and even though the Civil Rights Act had only been in place for three years — hardly long enough, even in theory, to end racial discrimination. In short, white folks have always wished black people would stop fighting for their rights, no matter how truncated those rights were at the time.

By 1969, a mere year after the death of Martin Luther King Jr., 44 percent of whites told a Newsweek/Gallup Survey (August 19, 1969) that blacks had a better chance than they did to get a good paying job — twice as many as said they would have a worse chance. In the same poll, eighty percent of whites said blacks had an equal or better chance for a good education than whites did, while only seventeen percent said they would have a worse opportunity.

The bottom line is that black people need to be heard and taken seriously, and not just the ones who conform to the thinking and feelings of whites who try to convince themselves and others that those days of racism are primarily over. What they’re doing today is no different than what was done in days past, and it will keep going so long as their denial takes charge.
