Nobody is forcing black kids to sit together in the cafeteria.

That ended long ago.

They do it because they want to.

They harass their peers for “acting white” if they study and sit with the other kids.

People are most comfortable around people with whom they identify. Race is the most obvious form identification, but it’s not the only one.

The Jocks hang out together in the cafeteria because they identify with each other.

The Nerds hang out together in the cafeteria because they identify with each other.

Christians hang out together for the same reason.

We choose our own groups based on our own likes and dislikes. Problems arise when you are forced to be in a group you didn’t choose or even dislike.

I would not want to hand out with liberals unless we talked about things not related to religion or politics. Unfortunately, sports has become so infected with politics that you could hardly talk about it anymore without mentioning politics.

"It's a constant practice — we have 400 years of racial injustice to unlearn."

What bullsh*t.

NONE of these people were slaves. and I doubt Grace Dickinson is a day over 300 years old.

The problem white people have with black citizens is based on HOW BLACK CITIZENS ACT IN TODAY'S WORLD. Within the time of OUR lifespan...and the lifespans of other ethnic groups who have lived near them and watched their choices... We've all experienced violent black neighborhoods. And none of the violence was caused by people being slaves.

AND WE have to give our children 'the talk' too. Surprised? When they're old enough to drive we have to tell our white children to avoid neighborhoods where gates cover stores and bars cover windows

BLACK CITIZENS HAVE A BAD REPUTATION BECAUSE THEY'VE EARNED A BAD REPUTATION. Earned the reputation in the last 50 years...
