I think that if a newcomer to this country wants to understand the race issue between black and white in America that Benton Harbor Michigan is a PERFECT microcosm to start there research from. If one simply traces the history and actions and reactions that manifested over the last 100 years, summarizing to the riots of this weak, they will have the explanation to the race dilemma in America today.

Recent immigrants to America have convoluted the picture of what America has created in Black and white. People who live in the West and South West or other heavily immigrant populated areas do not get the clear picture of the black white racial divide that is America. But the South and Great Lakes area of our nation there represents a non-convoluted snapshot of what the history of racism and bigotry against black people has created. For these areas are composed of just primarily black and white folks and the difference in standards of living are stark reminder of that history.

You have to read this story, because it is TRULY the story of America and our people all summarized and presented in one tiny area of our nation.

Outstanding point Nmaginate...that is very ironic. Hey, maybe they can circumvent the race issue, by giving extra points for admission based upon the CITY you come from or from the ZIP CODE that you come from or attended high shcool in. People from Bentor Harbor, Detroit, Flint and others are predominately African anyway and most of Michigan is Soooo Segregated that using Zip Codes and Cities will have the same effect of using race, but without race being a STATED preference...as they are fighting against. That is how you use their own actions against them Big Grin

As I understand it that already happens to some extent for WHITES...

The point[s] you get for both competitive academic curriculum and competitive schools as well. The abject poverty of the economically segregated Black communities make that a virtual impossibility...

You make a good point...

You do know that the geographic points are reportedly to all white, perhaps rural white communities... Circumvention is the white name of the game, apparently!

I also believe there should be spiteful counter-suits for those Blacks that did not get admitted with higher grades than any one dumber white... of which there were plenty that were dumber whites than the white girl, Gratz, who is making the suit.... Go figure!

Employers already do that when it comes to hiring people. They do discriminate by your zip code, phone number and address. This was revealed to me by a black HR personel. So I think that this is most likely an acceptable practice that has been going on for decades as a control measure.

Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods, or tactics, or strategy. We have to keep in mind at all times that we are not fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as free humans in this society
