fat_free: I know, right??? This is such bullshiat! Now, excuse me for a second while I make sure TiVo recorded "The Miss Black USA Pageant"...


Yo, Sparky, I hate to break it to you, but those people are the reason there is a "Miss Black USA" pageant in the first place. They are the reason "traditional black colleges" etc. exist

Now, have a cookie and run along. The adults are talking.

Because blacks are a minority and were underrepresented in Congress.

Same reason why there is an NAACP. A NAAWP organization just sounds stupid. What the hell do we white people need to advance? What rights does the majority race in this country need to fight for?

CBS Atlanta News asked Deal about the segregated proms, he said, "I believe anything associated with a school should not have the distinction based on race or gender or any other separation. However, when pressed, he said, "Some of these are just local issues and private issues and not something state government needs to have its finger involved in."

So he's going with the Dukes of Hazard defense.

"Look, these are just some good ol' boys, never meaning no harm."

This is the farking governor. Don't you dare call republicans racists though.

Elegy: Annnnnnddddd that's bullshiat of the highest order right there. The primary difference between Wilcox county and any given rural county in the north is that Wilcox county is 36.8% black people.

It sure is easy to claim "the north isn't racist" when your average rural county has a vanishingly small population of black people. Of course, lets completely ignore the fact that whites in the north have trapped the blacks in crumbling inner cities in their haste to get away from their friendly neighbors of color - but the north isn't racist at all...

I think the solution here is a federal program to relocate black people to the rural north. I mean, we keep hearing about how the north is a veritable paradise of racial relations. I'm sure the average income and education levels are much higher too. Such a program would do little to reduce the south's population of blacks, but it would do wonders for the north's non-integrated populations. And, objectively, it would be much better for the poor southern black population to help them move to an area that has a high standard of living and a plethora of racial tolerance.. ...



Black people are not wildebeast on a migration. Blacks in the south have just as many roots as the whites and I dare say they have more of a claim to the land because their ancestors actually did the work to build it.

Please don't get the idea I'm cuttin' on you but here's how it works.
White folks already HAVE their own versions of these organizations and what not.  They just call is "Society".  And in general most folks of color aren't asked to join in this greater "Society".
Oh sure, whites hire non-white police and nurses and what not, whites even let a few in the door to the country club but in general, non-white individuals are kept out.
to digress for a moment-
In cases where people of color get included in the greater society (as in the country club mentioned above) it could be considered what is called Cultural Hegemony.  In this instance, the dominant culture tells a minority that "if you work hard and keep your nose clean, you may join us".  It keeps people in line without heavy artillery because everyone wants to be a part of the greater society (in theory)
Historically, removing the concept of Cultural Hegemony is what made the Black Panthers so dangerous to the white majority and resulted in the demonization and murders of it's leaders.

The school not having a prom is part of the reason for this.  Previous articles on this said the private proms started after the school refused to have an integrated prom.   Having one will take away the "well, there's no school one" justification.

From the beginning of this thread you've been justifying white-only clubs and events, and said that African-Americans are the real racists.


Your reading comprehension is pretty low. I was justifying both white and minority clubs/event. I never claimed that African-Americans are the real racists. I commented that I thought it was funny that the notion is that only whites are racist and any minority group could not possibly be racist. I was also intrigued why you thought this such a big deal when when it is a private social event and this sort of thing happens ALL THE DAMN time and not just whites perpetuating this kind of behavior, however you and others are treating it as if whites are the only ones that do this.

The reverse is simply to roll up the windows and lock the doors. Call security and have them remove The Negro who appears out of place and possibly has aggressive intentions. Then we'll have a game of squash, then lunch, I think. Mmm'kay?

The whole thing is about power and access to power. The Man doesn't care about the Traditional Black Colleges, the various black fraternities and sororities and social organizations because beyond a very local scope, nobody there has any real power. Very few people in those organizations are gaining access to the Governor's Mansion or the White House, at least not as an immediate consequence of affiliation in Alpha-Kappa-Alpha, Omega-Psi-Phi, or Prince Hall. That might make you a big wheel in the black communities around Homeland, but that's going to be very local and guess what, black only.

On the other hand, if you're playing golf at the fancy-schmancy traditional white-only country club, or the one that was white-only until that became illegal, then you're rubbing elbows with the corporate chiefs, senators, etc. The real money. And so they maintain the "white only" rule by making it so expensive that only the wealthiest non-white can participate, and by the time The Negro has that kind of money he's (a) learned to conduct himself in elite white culture, and (2) has some real money to invest, so he's welcome. And the fact is, it ain't just about color, it's about socio-economic class. Of course, that's all relative too.

Just don't let his son invite the club president's very white daughter to the cotillion. Although it's not an issue, she's been trained to politely decline (though she may still blow him behind the pool house).

     It is the 21st century. Any "whites only" "blacks only" event is kinda backwards and kinda racist. That sort of thing really only breeds resentment regardless of who's doing it. I would understand the argument behind black only  events and oranizations if this were maybe 1960 something or earlier, but segregation is clearly not the accepted norm in todays society and to continue something simply because of "Tradition" is essentially an argument for white only events and organization. Hell it almost sounds like the ridiculous argument against gay rights of "well that's how it's always been defined".

the money is in the banana stand: Tatsuma: the money is in the banana stand: It doesn't really exist in the degree that you believe it does. From the article, it was a private event. As a private event, the individuals can socialize with whomever they want based on whatever principle they want. This might be shocking to you, but people tend to gravitate towards people who are like them. I can guarantee you that you can go to almost any city and see they have all black proms as well. We had in addition to our prom held by our school a private Senior Men's and Senior Girl's formal. It was predominately white, but not exclusively. There was also a formal that was all black. It's funny because no one cared they had a formal that was all black, but lord help us the backlash we had because some black students felt excluded from our event. We had Quanell X at our freaking school talking about how racist it was that the school was letting such an event happen.

Boo farking hoo, call me when the prom put on by the school is denying students entry based on race.

Let me guess, the guy who is defending an 'all white' prom as 'a private event' is a white guy?

The irony of you quoting that post and then saying this is just... what the fark.

How are you so butthurt over this? You do realize they have ALL black proms and ALL black frats/sororities right? You can pick your friends and social circles based on whatever criteria you see fit.


Do you know why all black proms and all black sororities and frats came into existence? It is because black people weren't allowed to join the other frats or sororities or attend the white proms. And let me tell you something else that may shock you, white people or any other ethnicity are welcome to join the black sororities and frats and always have been.

Black clubs, schools and the such did come about because black people wanted to be separate from whites. They came about because white people wouldn't let black people join their groups or go to their schools, so black people formed their own, and invited other ethnicities to participate.

The South is allowed to succeed. They can submit their request to do so and may leave 1 year after I come to power. This will give time for people to flee.

There will be 2 conditions.

1 - They are required, annually and forever, to pay tribute to the North States of America consisting of 10% of their GDP.

2 - They're not allowed to have a standing army or defense force (ala Japan). Raising one will be considered an act of war and will give the NSoA consent to forcibly annex the South as a territory with no government representation.

How many white kids don't get into their college of choice because of the color of their skin?

Almost none would be my guess, but if a few don't to make room for a black kid I'm ok with that.  Institutional racism still exists, and it existed in force during our parents' lives.

How many political appointees get in because they are black?

Some?  Who cares?

Why aren't NBA teams racially equal?

Because hiring is based on performance, and whites were never brutally discriminated against necessitating special programs to force a level playing field.

Where are the fast track programs for white males?

White males are always fast-tracked.  I certainly was.   It's good to be white.

Not as tiring as it is reading bullshiat like your last post. You're so incapable ofseeing black people as human beings that you're talking about migrating them North...because the white people in the south don't like them. Never thought about moving the whites out though. Never crossed your mind. I think I know why that is.

JPSimonetti: Mrtraveler01: JPSimonetti: There's more black against white hate in Memphis than the other way around.

Oh for the love of God stop it.

I go to Memphis occasionally and yes I do realize it's a two-way street and that both races practically hate each other. That's why Memphis is the cesspit that it is.

White people move out east and south into Mississippi to get away from the black people in Memphis and somehow it's the black people who are the most racist?

Give me a break!

Congrats on visiting Memphis. Try living in the city for 20 years. You see it every day. Every thing you encounter has a tone of racism. Fat white guy walking past a group of black youths on the street? "Look at dat fat cracka, daamn." If it was a fat black guy, it'd be a nod. If you're a white guy and a black woman accused you of, say, opening your door into her car in a parking lot? 3 black cops show up. Automatically your fault. Then they lie to the insurance company when they call them and say you admitted opening your door into her car." Black guy living next to a white household? Expect to constantly be ignored, shunned, and see them check their car door locks 3 times before going to bed. Then they'll call the police everytime they can hear the slightest bit of music or partying coming from your house. Black student in a classroom with a white teacher? Have fun at that IEP meeting where the teacher hasn't taken the time to learn a damn thing about your kid. THAT is the south. I've seen all these things and hundreds more. Until you've lived it, don't assume you know anything about it.


And I'm sure the same thing never happens to black people in the suburbs.

I said that both sides are equally racist, both sides are the reason Memphis is such a cesspit compared to other Southern cities.

Needs a lot more backstory. There has to be a reason. Frankly, no one is that stupid and outwardly racist to make segregated proms without a reason. I've lived in TN all my life, Memphis for 20 of those years. There is so much interracial hate in the air in Memphis that it's hard to breathe. It's not even about race - it's about behavior. If you're black and act white, you'll get treated nearly the same as a white person. Same for white people acting black.

I bet there was an incident at a school-sponsored gathering in the past. Something will racial tension, or threats of it. The culture clash of that many people in one building (In the south, it is two completely different worlds. Northerners couldn't possibly understand) ... There is a constant tension and uneasiness around Memphis, where you wish you could see over your shoulder at all times without turning your head. Around the other race, you have to be extremely careful about what you say or you'll be judged pretty damned fast. At an enormous gathering where everyone is merged together, all it would take is a tiny catalyst to cause an issue that would make national headlines.

People from the real south will know what I'm talking about. This ain't Hart of Dixie.

Some of the more adventurous boys may even clap their hands and wiggle their upper torsos; one might see a spin or two. This sort of experimentation into body movement is something that should be encouraged, and so yes, Lenny Kravitz would be allowed to attend (but purely in a performance capacity).

While some very limited number of minority organizations (NOI, Black Panther Party) do preach segregation and racial politics, most minority organizations are meant to support historically and presently oppressed or disenfranchised minority groups.  Most do NOT engage in separatist or oppressive membership.  So, minority groups can biatch up a storm all they want if they have legitimate concerns or interests that impact their members being impacted by majority group detracting from their right to equal opportunities.  A congressional white caucus would only serve to maintain or increase a political majority power structure.  There is no other reason for a congressional white caucus to exist.

There probably was a black prom, but not because the black people wanted to be separate from the white people. This is what he doesn't understand or wants to conveniently ignore. The reason why there was a black prom is because the black kids that couldn't go to the white prom had two choices, have their own prom, which more than likely was open to whoever wanted to attend, or sit at home.

Bullshiat. That is what you WANT to believe. You want to believe the climate is the same as it was in 1960 and pre-Civil War. Your false conception is that the prom that is mostly black is open to all wanting to attend and a reaction to being shunned from the "white prom". In reality, our Senior Men's formal just happened to end up mostly white because that was the same core group of students that had been together since elementary school and lived together. We had another "Senior Men's" formal which was way less diverse and by invitation only. With the exception of two white girls and one white boy, it was all black. Your ignorance exemplifies what people with limited exposure to the real world actually think.


The school involved in this story didn't have an official school prom because it would have had to be integrated, so they canceled it. That is a fact. Say what you want, but some people felt strongly enough about things being segregated that the school decided not to have an integrated prom.

And I think your responses clearly shows your ignorance to the real world.

There probably was a black prom, but not because the black people wanted to be separate from the white people. This is what he doesn't understand or wants to conveniently ignore. The reason why there was a black prom is because the black kids that couldn't go to the white prom had two choices, have their own prom, which more than likely was open to whoever wanted to attend, or sit at home.

Why would you want to be a part of a group of organization that doesn't want you there anyways?

IamTomJoad:  I'm not over thinking it. That suggests that they had some VALID reason that they didn't speak about with the cameras in their faces. In listing the possible valid reasons, it was suggested that there was probably "an incident" which precluded the decision of the white people to seperate. Well, if the issue was created by white people, they would not feel the need to have their won seperate event. It was obviously being suggested that black people did something to make the white people want a seperate prom. I'm not stupid. Maybe YOU dodn't think about what you were writing, but I sure got it.

So you're attempting to claim that if white people wanted a separate even, it was because of something black people did before, not because of anything done by those poor innocent white people, while also maintaining that race has nothing to do with it.


I think the "event" you are looking for perhaps might be when the Federal Government informed the school way back they had to have a prom that included everyone. Clearly this was an attempt to thwart states rights so they punished the rest of the kids, took the school sponsored event away and made it "private" (re:white)
That's the "tension" you speak of in the past. Being told to quit being racist by the government and instead of looking for understanding started looking for loopholes


So white people having a prom that excluded black people was okay in your eyes until the feds complained, then in your eyes they punished the rest of the kids?  The rest of the kids being those non white kids that were already being punished by already having been excluded.

Just because there are more of a people, don't assume they have any special rights, it is quite the opposite. Scary thing is, in 2040 or whenever whites become the minority, do you think black people and Democrats will be fighting for our rights? Hell no. You might push for white slavery then.

There are more white people on welfare than black. I'd call you racist, but I'm sure its just ignorance.

According to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_perce...are_on_welfare
http://www.chacha.com/question/what-...2C-or-hispanic

- 29 million people are on welfare
- 39% white: 11,661,000
- 38% black: 11,362,000

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demogra...United_States:
- US population: 313,544,041
- White: 72.4%: 227,005,885
- Black: 12.6%: 39,506,549

Math time!:

Whites: 11.661,000 / 227,005,885 * 100 = 5.13%
Blacks: 11,362,000 / 39,506,549 * 100 = 28.75%

That means the total percentage of all white people in america on welfare is: 5.13%

While the total percentage of all black people in america on welfare is: 28.75%


I'm not sure who in this tangle of arguments is trying to make what case, but part of the welfare numbers would be influenced by:

http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2012/tables/12s0697.pdf
MEDIAN INCOME IN CURRENT DOLLARS BY RACE, 2009

White: $62,545
Black: $38,409

$14,000 a year can buy a lot of groceries. Even this number has a lot of contributing factors behind it, but if your/someone's argument is that white people > black people based on welfare numbers you're oversimplifying.

scottydoesntknow: Let's reduce the population of the US down to 100 people, to simplify things. If there's 100 people, then 72 people are white and 12 people are black.

So if 38% of the whites are on welfare, that equals a little over 27 whites on welfare.
If 39% of the blacks are on welfare, that's a little over 4 blacks on welfare.

So speaking just on those numbers, 27 whites > 4 blacks on welfare.


Your perscentages are wrong - 39% of all welfare recipients are white, and 38% are black.  So there's a roughly equal number of whites and blacks on welfare. Unfortunately, that translates into a larger percentage of all blacks that are on welfare.  See girlienerd's breakdown above.  What's not addressed by those numbers is the why - which the national dialogue appears to be unable to address in a practical and logical manner because the agenda-baiters on both sides won't allow it.

white: 11,661,000  >  black: 11,362,000

You see, this is how we know you all are racist bags of excrement. By YOUR numbers, there are approximately 300,000 more white people in America recaiving welfare benefits than there are black people. If each one of the additional white people were to get a check for $400/ month, that would be an additional $120 MILLION of YOUR taxes per month that is going to white people. Or, 1.44 BILLION per year. Now, if white people get an additional $1.4 billion from  welfare, what the fark are you talking about black people for? Its because you're an a bigot...or you're not good at math. I suspect its both.

There are more white people on welfare than black. I'd call you racist, but I'm sure its just ignorance.

Must get tiring moving those goalposts and nitpicking responses all the time, Dro.

Not as tiring as it is reading bullshiat like your last post. You're so incapable ofseeing black people as human beings that you're talking about migrating them North...because the white people in the south don't like them. Never thought about moving the whites out though. Never crossed your mind. I think I know why that is.


First off, no one is talking about "moving people out" but you. I specified a voluntary assistance program to encourage disadvantaged black people to move out of the racist hell-hole people assure me is the south. Got it? Voluntary. Financial. Assistance. You want help, we'll provide it.

Second off, such a program would create an imperceptible difference in my day to day life as a southerner. In other words, nothing would change HERE. Blacks make up 30-40% of the total population of many states in the south, and a majority in many geographical areas like Atlanta and the Mississippi delta. There is simply no way to move that many people, even if that is what I proposing (and I'm not).

What it would change (and rapidly) is the demographics of the north, where many counties have less than 1% black people. I would suggest this would put the assertation that "the north isn't racist like the south" to test, and pretty quickly.

Oh, sure, it's fun to sling mud at the south for being racist, but suggest we help people move out of these racist areas (and non-coincidentally into the areas that are predominantly white yet supposedly "non-racist") and you get up arms over it.

Why is that? Perhaps you don't WANT poor blacks from the south as your neighbors? That sounds pretty damn racist to me.

TotesCrayCray: If I one day becomes Supreme Overlord of the United States of America, I plan to make some needed changes and at the same time troll on a national level. Here's one of my ideas.

The South is allowed to succeed. They can submit their request to do so and may leave 1 year after I come to power. This will give time for people to flee.

There will be 2 conditions.

1 - They are required, annually and forever, to pay tribute to the North States of America consisting of 10% of their GDP.

2 - They're not allowed to have a standing army or defense force (ala Japan). Raising one will be considered an act of war and will give the NSoA consent to forcibly annex the South as a territory with no government representation.


I'm going to guess that one of the requirements of being "Supreme Overlord of the United States of America" would be knowing the difference between 'succeed' and 'secede'

It's true, those poor Bubbas who didn't want to talk to the news crew were nobodies. But it speaks volumes that the governor of the largest state east of the Mississippi, a state that has a shameful history on race issues, refused to make a single positive comment about the students who organized their first integrated prom. Not even a simple "Congratulations" did he utter, as he turned away, looking every bit as uncomfortable and embarrassed as the parents at the segregated prom. Yeah, that is kind of a big farking Deal (pun intended).

Oh for the love of God stop it.

I go to Memphis occasionally and yes I do realize it's a two-way street and that both races practically hate each other. That's why Memphis is the cesspit that it is.

White people move out east and south into Mississippi to get away from the black people in Memphis and somehow it's the black people who are the most racist?

Give me a break!


Congrats on visiting Memphis. Try living in the city for 20 years. You see it every day. Every thing you encounter has a tone of racism. Fat white guy walking past a group of black youths on the street? "Look at dat fat cracka, daamn." If it was a fat black guy, it'd be a nod. If you're a white guy and a black woman accused you of, say, opening your door into her car in a parking lot? 3 black cops show up. Automatically your fault. Then they lie to the insurance company when they call them and say you admitted opening your door into her car." Black guy living next to a white household? Expect to constantly be ignored, shunned, and see them check their car door locks 3 times before going to bed. Then they'll call the police everytime they can hear the slightest bit of music or partying coming from your house. Black student in a classroom with a white teacher? Have fun at that IEP meeting where the teacher hasn't taken the time to learn a damn thing about your kid. THAT is the south. I've seen all these things and hundreds more. Until you've lived it, don't assume you know anything about it.

JPSimonetti: Needs a lot more backstory. There has to be a reason. Frankly, no one is that stupid and outwardly racist to make segregated proms without a reason. I've lived in TN all my life, Memphis for 20 of those years. There is so much interracial hate in the air in Memphis that it's hard to breathe. It's not even about race - it's about behavior. If you're black and act white, you'll get treated nearly the same as a white person. Same for white people acting black.

I bet there was an incident at a school-sponsored gathering in the past. Something will racial tension, or threats of it. The culture clash of that many people in one building (In the south, it is two completely different worlds. Northerners couldn't possibly understand) ... There is a constant tension and uneasiness around Memphis, where you wish you could see over your shoulder at all times without turning your head. Around the other race, you have to be extremely careful about what you say or you'll be judged pretty damned fast. At an enormous gathering where everyone is merged together, all it would take is a tiny catalyst to cause an issue that would make national headlines.

People from the real south will know what I'm talking about. This ain't Hart of Dixie.


You sound pretty...uh...you don't sound like you appreciate other cultures. Your premise is that there's "no way" anyone would be outwardly racist, so it means the black kids must have done something to make the white people want to seperate. Wow. Maybe the "tension" comes from being black and knowing that there are white people who so detest you that they don't want their kids dancing with you? Nahhh, that's probably not it.

HMS_Blinkin: ObscureNameHere: So interesting that issues in the USA are either 'black' or 'white'.  I live near Toronto (one of the burbs) and I am trying to picture how such a dance would go at my kids' school.  I think there would 10 kids at each 'segregation'.

"Ok, white kids (including pale Middle Eastern/Arabic) dance this Monday, followed by the black kids (Caribbean and Africa) dance on Tuesday, brown asian kids (Indians, Sikhs, various 'istans') on Wednesday, light asian/oriental kids (Chineses, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese) on Thursday, and you mixed-race types can be on Friday."

Please don't lump rural Georgia in with the rest of the USA.  In all major cities (and most rural areas outside of the south), you'd have (at a minimum) reasonable diversity and tolerance.  It's only in places like Wilcox county that you get this kind of messed-up culture.


Annnnnnddddd that's bullshiat of the highest order right there. The primary difference between Wilcox county and any given rural county in the north is that Wilcox county is 36.8% black people.

It sure is easy to claim "the north isn't racist" when your average rural county has a vanishingly small population of black people. Of course, lets completely ignore the fact that whites in the north have trapped the blacks in crumbling inner cities in their haste to get away from their friendly neighbors of color - but the north isn't racist at all...

I think the solution here is a federal program to relocate black people to the rural north. I mean, we keep hearing about how the north is a veritable paradise of racial relations. I'm sure the average income and education levels are much higher too. Such a program would do little to reduce the south's population of blacks, but it would do wonders for the north's non-integrated populations. And, objectively, it would be much better for the poor southern black population to help them move to an area that has a high standard of living and a plethora of racial tolerance....

Freedom of association even applies to those you disagree with and should be not only permitted by supposedly vicitimized groups.

Some in the black community even want their own segregated schools

Sadly some tax dollars find their way into this segregation:

The Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders in Ausitn Texas is a girls only school funded by tax dollars but restricts admission to women. No such school exists for boys in the AISD school system.

Canada even uses tax dollars to fund black only schools

CBS Atlanta News asked Deal about the segregated proms, he said, "I believe anything associated with a school should not have the distinction based on race or gender or any other separation. However, when pressed, he said, "Some of these are just local issues and private issues and not something state government needs to have its finger involved in."

That did not sit well with Warnock. "The idea that these are private issues is really problematic... When the Montgomery bus boycott got started in 1955, that boycott was against a private bus company, and Rosa Parks stood up by not sitting down and said we won't accept segregation, not even on a private bus company, and the rest is history."
