Racial Inequalities

Post by C-Slay on Wed Aug 03, 2011 2:34 pm

I'd like to take the time hold a free base of expressions on racial inequalities. To be up front and honest, i think inequalities based on race are a result of a certain people's own mistakes. I believe we've given all races fair opportunities to make something of themselves. The inequalities that we perceive by what we are told is all media based. We all need to be standing up for ourselves and show the world that just because your not white doesn't mean that everyone should show you sympathy for your wrong doings. That kind of bull shit is exactly what i'm talking about. Let's discuss it further.

If you hire a white man over a black man, you can be sued for racial discrimination.

It is not as easy as you might assume to go up and down the class structure as you might think. Regardless, racism can still affect the ability for some people to get fired.

Identical job applications with a "white" name and a "black" name* (Kevin and Tyrone) were sent out, with Kevin getting twice as many calls back for interviews.

It's getting better, but it isn't perfect yet.


*Names are based on cultures, which are heavily based on ethnicity. If you are naming your WASP kid "Eduardo", you're doing it wrong.

Because there shouldn't be anyone saying that racial inequality is a good thing. Thus, no debate.

Okay...

Idk, just seemed like one of those controversial things that usually ends up in the debate section. I actually thought NT would be on the "not all races are equal" side anyway, which would've made it a debate.

Maybe it should be "Debate & Discussion" or something *shrug*

No one race is better than the other.

Except White people.

They are the superior race.

ie When you acknowledge that "White people only" signs are unfair, you are being racist.

Same problem. Acknowledging when there is racism (ie it is harder for them to get fired) is not racist.

Are we speaking of racial prejudice in the USA or the long held idea: that one race can be superior to another?

To immediately reject the idea right out would be ignorant. Races are defined by a clear genetic difference between populations of the same species, genetic differences that absolutely go beyond skin color. These populations have been formed as different groups of people came out of Africa, with their own unique gene pool, and spread to nearly every landmass on the planet. Over time we have adapted to our environment, (the first Europeans were, at first, black) and the genetics of the human race took divergent paths yet again. We are all adapted to our respective environments, but some changes that were made in our more or less isolated genetic pools are unequally fit for modern civilization. It is clear to me that the different races of our species are likewise, unequally adapted to modern civilization and therefore can be rendered superior/inferior to each other in this sense.

That said, I could not tell you where Earth's races stand against each other, or that the mental differences between them are profound. Simply, I'm saying that there is inequality between us and that is something that western society largely seems afraid to consider.

That's like the exact opposite of what they taught in school.

Not that I believe either side.

If I had to hazard a guess, I would say native Africans would be genetically more physically capable, since they were living a primitive lifestyle of fighting for their lives constantly much longer than the Europeans were. Which would be backed up by them doing so much better at Olympic Track and Field.

Blacks have a lower center of gravity which is better for running and jumping, but worse for things like swimming. They're not stronger necessarily, just different build.

Or whites are more aggressive. Or whites have the advantage of living in Europe as opposed to Africa.
