Toussaint, a few of your assumptions are flawed. For one, the assumption that free-market economies are free. This may be more or less true, but for us it's getting less and less true with each passing year.

Good cases in point are the lack of enforcement of anti-trust laws that are on the books and the...

Raheem, sorry but your point that many white women hit on black men made no sense. Again, what types of black men are they hitting on and how do they look in comparison to those black men? I'm sure "Ana Nicole Smith" hits on "Urkel" (not even that seems plausible) but I don't believe that "Pamela Anderson" or even "Ann Coulter" would do the same. So again you're being ridiculous. Unless "Urkel" is rich his chances are slimmer than Bill Gates pre-Microsoft. So your naivete is just amusing.
