Making them feel comfortable? That's absolutely ridiculous! It's one thing to say that seeing a group of teenagers talking loudly and wearing oversized clothing makes one uncomfortable--I don't like being near any race of teens, as a matter of fact (barely out of my teens years myself, funny enough). But then some people will persist in feeling threatened because you are Black, irregardless of how neatly dressed or well spoken you are. I've experienced situations like this, only with Asians...

Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

Is that going to change if they get married? Is this number a reflection of tax breaks that married people get, and what other variables are there?

It seems to me that any example of progress can be use as an arguement that racism is dead, and we now live in a color-blind society. I see such arguements being made all the time right now, against Afirmative Action or whatever, even without a penny of reparations being made. Of course, some people would add reperations to their long list of reasons that they already have. There's nothing special about a supposed backlash resulting from reperations.
