Black racists

Reader comment on item: Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim
in response to reader comment: True Persective

Are you saying that if a meal were served to you on a dirty plate, that you would not mind at all?

Personally, I am sick of black racists like FarraCon, Sharpton, Jackson, et al. Plenty of blacks succeed in America. What is truly amazing are those that accomplished incredible things in an environment of vicious racism (GW Carver, Booker T. Washington, and more). "Having Our Say" should be required reading for all junior highschool students in the US (actually, it could be read and understood by elementary school students who can actually read). The authors, the Delaney sisters, whose parents were slaves, tell of life under Jim Crow, and yet they and their eight other siblings were successful (only one didn't graduate from college, and that before affirmative action). ...

Strong families are so important to proper development and success. With 70% of black babies born out of wedlock, I'd say that is a bigger problem than racism, especially in a world where black athletes are the heroes of white kids, and Oprah is probably the richest woman in America. And we must not forget how beloved Condoleeza Rice is to Americans of all races, not to mention a wonderful role model for all American girls.

Christian faith was the impetus of the Civil Rights Movement in the US. Slavery still exists in Muslim countries today, and is even divinely sanctioned in the Koran. Get over your "America is racist" attitude and take responsibility for your life. I'd also suggest that ou judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.
