    You're right. I wasn't alive in the 60s, my mother was barely alive, so I have no perspective as to how bad it was. According to Haley Barbour, it "wasn't that bad." My step-dad graduated in 1972, and his senior year they desegrated his high school. It took until his 40 year reunion for both races to come together during a reunion (the 3 previous reunions were held seperate).

    I guess you can look at my responses in my OP and it can show how different the times have become. Yet there's still that generation on both sides who claim it's still that way even today.

    Obviously not if it's null and void today.
    I noticed you keep pointing this out:

    1. What do you mean control your destiny? You can't pick your own college major and take out loans?
    5. Take a loan out and go to college.
    Anyone in their right (not white) minds knew blacks didn't stand a chance on academic loan qualifications 50 years ago.
    It's not really that much different today.

    Well-off blacks denied loans more than low-income whites


    DAYTON — More than four decades after racial discrimination in home lending was outlawed, lenders in the Dayton area deny a much higher percentage of loans to blacks than whites, even when income levels are comparable.
    Blacks are also more likely than whites to be sold a high-cost, subprime loan.
    A Dayton Daily News examination of 2008 Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data found significant racial disparities exist at every income level.
    For example, upper-income blacks from an eight-county area in 2008 were twice as likely as whites to be denied home purchase or refinancing loans, the newspaper found.
    More than 46 percent of black applicants who earn at least $71,760 a year had their applications rejected, while 23 percent of white applicants in that income range did.

    2. I agree, everybody should get full employment, if they meet the qualifications for the jobs they apply for.

    3. 6 million Jews over a course of 6 years, vs 50 million blacks over 400 years. They should've looked into those statistics a little more. But I agree, if Germany could ball up and help out the Jews, America could acknowledge slavery a little more.

    4. Why should we offer decent housing to only black citizens? What about the other minorities?

    5. Take a loan out and go to college.

    6. If you want equal rights, you'll be treated like an equal. And that means you'll be drafted if we have a draft.

    7. Fair enough.

    8. No. If you're in jail, you more than likely did something to be in jail. That goes with all groups.

    9. You want an all-black Jury? Again, if you want to be treated like an equal, then that means we're peers so therefor whites are members of your peers.

    10. More government assistance just on the basis of your skin color.


    The BPP were a violent group that claimed they wanted the world to move on from racism, yet they perpetually made it worse. Whereas there were many civil rights leaders who accomplished great things through nonviolent acts, this group was murderous. One of the founders, Huey P. Newton, shot an Oakland police officer at a traffic stop. He served 3 years in jail before being released on an appeal, and even boasted that he "killed a white pig." In 3 years they killed 9 police officers and injured 56.

    Why can't we all just get along?
    BS. And ancient history. Pure race-baiting thread.

    And your threads aren't race baiting?

    I was bringing up their 10 Point Program as a topic of discussion.

    No. My threads are provocative, and the truth. You brought up ancient history. No one is thinking about the BPP. But don't let that stop you.

    And nobody is thinking of "white privalege." You may want to take a good look in the mirror before you accuse others of race baiting, my friend.

    And how did you arrive at that conclusion. I'm thinking about it. Watchman is thinking about it. And a whole slew of minorities are thinking about it, because you constantly throw it in our faces....your entitlement to privilege...that you can say or do anything and not suffer any criticism or consequences.
    And how come you can't spell "privilege"? It's an elementary word. And I'm not your friend.

    Did you mean integrated, and in what year will you graduate HS?

    I suffer criticism and consequences all the time. For someone who always tells people that they don't know you, again you might want to go back to that mirror because you don't know me and what I've gone through. And I spelt privilege wrong because I'm human, it happens. And I called you friend because I have the capability of having a civil conversation. And honestly, I don't see how any of your personal attacks are contributing to the topic at hand.

    Wow. Well I graduated in '70...ahead of your step-dad. Haley Barbour is full of shit. He can't speak for any minorities, who were on the receiving bad end of the stick.
    So, I recommend not talking about things you have no knowledge of, in order not to be embarrassed.
