Perhaps there isnt any black nation in this world that is as wealthy as black americans living in the United States of America. A talk show hostess is reputed to be the wealthiest and most influential black woman in the world, her money earned through legitimate (by worldly standards) ways. Another black american is on the verge of capturing the democratic nomination, a dream that has eluded other races. Inspite of their accomplishments, there are some blacks whose lives and ideology reflect either an attitude of ungratefulness and a call for change. There is a black guy that I know of, whose conversations sometimes is inflamed by racial inequities, a view shared by some of his fellow comrades. But I gotta ask, "What of the Asians, Latinos, and other minorities"? Are they also complaining? Asians are respected for being academic braniacs, as much as they are mocked for being geeks. Latinos, long associated with fence jumping and a lackadaisical attitude towards education have also made inroads in the USA. Today, black americans can can people like oprah, bill cosby, earl graves, condi rice as a few of the numerous successful blacks in the nation. In the Entertainment field, blacks are represented in Hollywood, though complaints have persisted that it is a shallow representation.
Do you think blacks are justified in their grievances against racism, or are they just blowing it out of proportion?
Meanwhile, here is a link on the discussion on race.
