** This is why we must push to educate the black populous. For the last few years, the CalStart program that sends lower-income people to the CalState schools had a surplus of money.

DING, DING, DING - We have another winner. I've expressed this in other threads. Everybody can't get the instant dream life (add perfect man/woman & stir ). Yes, it happens, but it's not the norm. Did anybody really read that Ruby Dee quote: To me, it's about knowing that things will never be perfect. It's about finding someone you're willing to love & argue with. It's about allowing yourself & your partner to evolve. It's not about picking a ready made package off the shelf.

About 200,000 black troops served in the Union forces during the Civil War. Encouraged by such abolitionists as Frederick Douglass to enlist, blacks composed about 12 percent of all Union soldiers. More than 38,000 died of wounds, disease, or sometimes execution when they were captured by Confederates. Twenty-three won the Medal of Honor for heroism. Although the men were forced to serve in segregated units, discriminated against in pay, assignments, and rank, the black troops were an...

Maybe the 'semantical' use of the conceptual phrase, 'racist tapestry' is misleading or misconstrued, or not providing an assesment of what 'I' feel about LOTR.

Perhaps, to trumpet LOTR as a purely 'racist' narrative on the rise of western culture is not honest, but, it is also dis- honest (for me anyway) to critiques this film as a purely a fairy tale,...

I'll answer at a couple of different levels. First, psychologically, humans are social animals. We look to what others are thinking to help shape our own opinions.
