If a black man has all the qualifications that a company needs and has a good education than why is he more likely to go to jail? Most people who go to jail (regardless of race) are poor and uneducated. This makes no sense of someone working in a high end office. Also how can you not know to look for breast cancer?! There's information of it everywhere.

unless its affirmative action


Not every company follow that rule. They could always hire you then make an excuse to fire. It's quite sad. Then again affirmative action is pretty sad. Black people who score "high" on their SAT or ACT receive full rides.

I have a friend at school who's Puerto Rican and hates Asians but Lani and I are exceptions to him o.O

I go to a school where majority of the students are white. I'm not complaining, I get along with all types of races :]

But my friend who's black tried out for cheerleading. The cheerleaders are all white and when my friend's name was called, everyone was staring at her with stern glares just because she was the only black girl trying out that day. And... she made it
But the next try out, more black girls came in and the head cheer leader told one particular black girl-- "sorry, we already have enough 'niggies; on the team' and then, they actually laughed at the poor girl.
It sucks though because I've seen that girl and she's really good :]

Most people are close-minded about other race because of their past or the country they come from.
I think that others look down on the black people was because of their enslavement long time ago which makes other thinks that they are inferior creatures.
I could be wrong though.
Whatever happened to the 'don't judge a book by its cover'?
People judge a whole race based on a few people's wrongdoings. They prefer to focus on the misdemeanor they've committed instead of focusing on their favorable traits.



was she wearing this outfit? http://americanhistory.si.edu/brown/history/1-segregated/images/kkk-robe-l.jpg


Hahaha, pretty much. It sucks so bad though but she did learn her lesson...the hard way =\

I wasn't saying that at all. You totally missed the point. A black man, is less likely to get that education or to be in the position to be hired by the company, due to his already having been in jail. Face it, alot of black people live in cities, and alot of cities get less then there suburban counterparts in the educational field, and that is why they are less likely to do well. Not because or race. Location, not Racism. And if you yell at me, I will simply say some do do well though, such as Oprah.

As for them not knowing to look, again, they could be located in a bad part of town, or they simply may not know. Information is everywhere, but honestly I never knew about it till about 15, of course I am a guy, but that doesn't mean other women could have been out of the loop even longer.

just like ppl who judge on other ppl online by a few forums posts then state that "you're only doing it to make your pitiful self feel superior while others are inferior is straight up preposterous"

correct me if i'm wrong.
