    Those that did were accused of "acting white" or being uncle Toms.

    There ya go. I was there and saw it happen. Don't need any theories.
    That is part of the cultural problem specific to black people. The "acting white" and "uncle Tom" attacks are problems that need to be addressed and can only be addressed from within.
    Other issues affect people of all races but primarily the poor. Rejection of education in general. Social acceptance and even encouragement of legal troubles and arrests. Social acceptance of drug use. Rejection of marriage and social acceptance of having children outside of marriage.

    On a side note: both of my parents grew up in Wichita Falls. My mom's family was very poor, but my dad's family had money. Both parents went to Midwestern State.

    I thought this was interesting. Throw in Christianity and it is unlimited.

    You are one who is attempting to mislead and distract from the discussion by simply blaming the problems on something that happened over 200 years ago rather than what happened 50 years ago. The latter can be fixed.

    You are defining "red herring" with your stance on this subject...

    something that distracts attention from the real issue which is what the slavery excuse does.

    Well, I started this particular discussion and I disagree with you. I did however note your assertion that I am attempting to mislead. How Trumpian...you can't have a disagreement without questioning the other party's motives. I'll be glad to debunk that particular tribalistic bull scat...next week.

    Re: What is Systemic Racism?

    to address any problem it is important to understand the controllable root causes (if you think there is a single root cause for any problem you have been lazy in your analysis). it is often helpful to identify all of the causes that contribute to a problem, but to solve the problem, you have to focus on the ones you can control. so let's start there.

    first i will try to summarize what the problem is perceived to be: black people do not have a fair chance of financial success in america because of their skin color.

    those who are arguing in favor of the existence of systemic racism in this country please let me know if i should change the formulation of the problem before we proceed.

    “Fair chance of financial success” sounds squishy and incomplete. What is “fair”? And white privilege extends to matters beyond finances.

    I have no guilt. Maybe I could see guilt in failing to recognize your privilege, but I don’t see why one should feel guilty just for having it.

    One would have to feel guilt to acknowledge white privilege. Agreeing with the likes of Jesse and Al does not place you on an elite thinker level.'
