Thought we could consolidate many of the new stories into one thread. Unfortunately, there's seemingly a new one every day.

These guys are just misunderstood- they are sad from 400 years of slavery in this country that invented it- they are just blowing off a little steam. Dems

The black community needs a ton of introspection right now, a ton. The media can distract all they want, but we all see what's going on and it's quite ugly. They need some strong men to step up ASAP.

What do you mean by diversity? The indians, asians, jews, and whites in silicon valley get along fine. I see indians and asians getting along fine in Toronto and the UK as well. Do you mean diversity with no assimilation?

One of the ways they keep themselves ignorant and incapable is to buy into the notion of absence of differences among various groups, be it race, sex, age, or whatever. The ignorance seems to be more comfortable for them than acceptance of reality and what that would mean to their fantasy notions of the world.

But, in a nutshell, it starts with 2 basic truths:
  1. There is no actual equality among humans
  2. Diversity + Proximity = Conflict

Acceptance of those two truths might allow us to find solutions to problems that are currently unsolvable, but people largely seem to prefer the willful ignorance route.

That's a lot to unpack and I'm a bit pressed for time, but I will say that the only equality I am interested in is the 'equal in the eyes of the law' kind. Also, I don't think conflict has to be a destructive process. Conflict can be invigorating and fruitful if handled correctly by responsible adults. But people are people so here we are.

“Between 1525 and 1866, in the entire history of the slave trade to the New World, according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World. 10.7 million survived the dreaded Middle Passage, disembarking in North America, the Caribbean and South America. And how many of these 10.7l milion Africans were shipped directly to North America? Only about 388,000. That’s right: a tiny percentage.”

American historian Henry Louis Gates


The black population, either alone or in combination with one or more races, in the United States, as of Feb 26, 2019 is 47.4 million.
