Will racism end when the old heads die off?

Oprah-As long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, the problem is not solved,” she said, adding,“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it – in that prejudice and racism –and they just have to die.”

We can not portray ourselves as a Christian nation if our government legislatures that have been in office for generations continue to push an all out assault on the poor, disadvantaged, disabled, and the president's governance. WE are all God's creations, and none of us are responsible for what race we happened to be. A lot of our circumstances, we did not choose, yet , we have a group of Americans who believe they have the right, to mock, denigrate , oppress, and discriminate against others because they do comfort to a standard that they set.

JimmyMack-thank you for not standing for what's right. We need more people in the world like you because we could make a difference and bring about a change. God bless you.

As long as race is used as a bargaining chip in politics to enhance one or more race over another, racism will never go away. As long as the pundits continue to stir the race issue up, it will continue to stink.

all im going to say is we have a lot of talk about race on the board here. but when a black man is called out for what he did with a minor and still got elected to the board of education. we can look at all the comments and see where everyone stands, especially when one of the most out spoken people didn't say a thing. it speaks true volumes about their character.

PN you and Jimmy don't have a PHD on racism in this country, you only have isolated experiences that you cling to and accept as reality on the status of our country; however you both have it wrong. Remember this blog from Alphozo Rachel he doesn't have a PHD either but he does present a balanced assessment which makes common sense. Take another look at " White people and the curse of racism" and you will recognize the similarities in the comments to this blog that Zo has identified.

@Funk-and let me guess-you Zo, and Cliven Bundy have it all together?

Funkentelecky commented on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 06:16 AM

@ PN yes I do ma'am. You like to throw out there to our fellow bloggers that are white, that they haven't walked in your shoes. The same statement goes for you and me too I'm as black as you and born in 1960, I have a more diversified experience in regards to racism than most blacks in my generation up until right now. I reviewed the blog again before I posted it to ensure what Zo was explaining was credible to post to this blog. The video is over 9 minutes long.

Do you have esp or are you just powers far above us mortal men, and have it all together because you posted your comments within 6 minutes of mine?

Jimmy of course I don't have a PHD either; however I'm pretty sure that the exception that you agree that I have has permitted me to have experienced a more realistic reality of how race relations actually are in this country. In 2008 my Director who was newly hired manager for the company I work for and is a POC had a vision for our department. His vision culminated in an expansion and a world wide focus which opened the doors for promotion to Sr. Manager in 2012 and culminating in his current position in 2013. In 5 years my Director as a said before who is a POC and 16 years junior in age accomplished this in the corporate world in 5 years. I don't know about what's happening in the NBA corporate world but I do know this. You can't expect to climb to corporate ladder if you don't conform with American culture. You can't have tattoos all over your body and talk all kinds of slang and walk around with your pants on the ground and be disrespectful and mean just to be and expect to climb the corporate ladder my friend

It seems instances of racism seems to always be presented or predicated by a black point of view. It alludes that only the white man is prejudice and even if other minorities display blatant racism it seems to be okay because their form of racism is "not as bad"... The generations of hate are of many different colors and to portray it any different than that is borderline racist in itself. I have been subjected to racist situations as well in my life; I guess because I am not black it is not as "important".

Get mad all you want but as long as ANY ethnicity has the ability to sensationalize situations, the hate will continue to perpetuate with future generations.

Racism is and always has been more about ignorance. To say that when the generation "dies off" things will get better is ludicrous at best. Until a collective stance is taken by all races, progress will not happen.

We can start by not alleging every time a minority is in a bad situation we do not automatically categorize it as racist...
