Please. Is this john doe in disguise? Presuming you're black, your self-hatred and racist generalizations are pathological and offensive. Suggesting that black America, in total, "ask(s) to be hired because we're black" is one of the most absurd things I've read in a long time. It says volumes about what you think about yourself.
But we have to want to be right more than we want to be angry. Can we do that?
Why do you present the two as mutually exclusive? Why can't black people embrace the emotion of anger at dealing with the shit that America deals us day in and day out? I love this country. I would be no other place on Earth. At the same time, I acknowledge the morally and ethically bankrupt ways that it has dealt with us. Because I love this nation, I want to do something about that and so I don't just sit back and keep taking it.
What's wrong with being angry? Again, your comment shows the discomfort with your own view of youself and your people. Should we just bow and say 'yassa massa'? Would that make you feel more "comfortable"?
