    It is Time for Black Americans to Cease Acting Like Victims- The Game Has Been Played Out.
    Many Black Americans contend that they are blameless for the educational and socioeconomic morass they are in. This belief and ideology are not only prevalent among lower socioeconomic classes of Black Americans but also among a few middle and upper middle socioeconomic classes of Black Americans. For example, one maternal cousin once removed, who has a Master's Degree in Psychology and is in a high-level administrative position, steadfastly maintain that "the man" is holding "us brother/sisters back".

    And from our very own Spazzy. A text book example of this victim mentality preventing a young African American male form achieving anything of substance in his life....

    QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HERE"and yet, from what i'm seeing, the baby boomers are the ones that control the workplace and are setting the standards so high that us millennials obviously can't reach it. you know.. the whole entry level job BUT must have 2 to 5 years experience or basically hogging up all the jobs and money for themselves. shit is ridiculous. not saying that they don't have a point but to blame millennials for why they're underachieving as if the baby boomers don't have anything to do with it is just laughable."

    It's more ridiculous than you think.

    Now there's a "no whites allowed" movement.

    It's kind of like giving college students "safe places" on campus where they won't be exposed to free speech.

    I agree, but it's hard to do when you have poor education, poor healthcare, poor living situations, and basically have no social or economic power. Of course you are going to feel oppressed and like a victim. We can look at the exception, the Oprahs and Beyonces, but how do we help the rest?

    But it's too late for this shit, let's pick up tomorrow.

    I agree with you, Mulignan and understand what you're talking about.

    The solution is to to start at the bottom breaking the vicious cycles that perpetuate poor education, healthcare, living situations etc. No one (politicians) has really put forth any effort to do that on the same level they've thrown money at "feel good" projects that do nothing about the root problems.

    Many of the problems are rooted in the culture itself and create obstacles in escaping the vicious cycles. They've been exacerbated by misguided efforts at social engineering and the unforeseen consequences of them. There's no easy massive cure all for the entire problem.

    From my perspective on a one on one basis things can and do change. Show me anyone earnestly trying to break out of the cycles and make more of himself and I will do what I can to create an opportunity for him. There are success stories and there are failures but that's true in everything. It's just important to concentrate on the successes and try to duplicate them.

    This really is not a "thing". To have some people tell it, you have black people on every corner screaming that they don't have a job because of a white people, when that couldn't be further than the truth. I have not encountered one black person in the real world claiming that "the man" is holding them down, but I have met many who make an honest living and some who have made it there from difficult places. The whole notion of that mentality is overstated.

    On the flip side, I have seen some white people automatically claim that blacks with good education and jobs only achieved that because of affirmative action, and somehow robbed a white person out of the job. If anything, there is a growing mentality that minorities are holding whites down.

    I agree. However I've noticed that the discussions of affirmative action amongst have dropped way off over the past 15 years. As an employer I've honestly found it easier to work with and train up and coming ambitious young black men and women than upper middle class whites of the same age and education. Some people are "hungry" for good opportunities and some aren't. Beyond that I've not taken the time to analyze it.

    Ah yes, let's not forget to factor in the implications of fictional characters on television into an otherwise intelligent adult conversation about very real situations.

    O f**k.

    It never occured to me before this that there was any such thing as a white fundamentalist social justice warrior.

    Now I'm going to have to rethink my entire world view.
