This is an interesting article, not sure how to take it yet. I'll have to re-read it again later. Hell's Kitchen is coming on.

I will say, my intial thoughts, I like to know where blacks are getting these privileges at. It sure as heck is not in San Diego. In San Diego, if you don't speak espanol then you're treated like poo. Hispanics get better home and car loans, there ain't nothing for blacks.

As for college, I run into more Hispanics, Arabics, and other minorities with an exception of blacks. I'm lucky to see maybe one other black student in a classroom.

And then what about these "privileges" for the blacks in the South? The ones who can't get out of the projects?

Maybe I'm taking this article out of context, but that's how I feel.

That is an interesting article. As for Eric Holder claiming Americans are "cowards" for not talking about race more, I completely disagree. I think we don't talk about race as much because it's less of an issue to most of us.

Personally, I don't care what color a person is. I only care how they act and treat others. I'll talk about that. I'll call someone an a-hole if they act like one. I'll call someone a nice person if they're nice. Color means nothing. Talking about it will just bring up more racial tensions. Let it go and act like it doesn't mean anything - because it doesn't.

As far as the "Privilege" part of the article, I don't really get that either. I don't agree with decisions being made based on race. It shouldn't happen regardless of which color is being favored.

I agree with that ... a-holes come in all different colours and if you are an a-hole, you are an a-hole ...

That is the million dollar question ... and if I were to weigh everything up, I would say Yes .... Do I think blacks have the same opportunties as everyone else? Yes .. but do I think they are treated the same? No ... I know most will probably agree and
