    ...in order for darker complected ppl to be considered equal to their white counterparts (not the average white person,but the ones that REALLY pull the strings in this nation) one has to lose their own identity,self worth & own values to conform to their so called superiors way of life (Where is that EQUALITY?) Our so-called integration into a fair & balanced American Society was really only an assimilation to our oppressors rule.

    Alright, I'll bite.

    What is it with blacks of your ilk, chacha, who believe that blacks can't be black and Americans, too.

    Because you're not rejecting "white values", you're rejecting American values. Values that have been adopted and shared by every ethnicity that legally immigrated to America -- be they Irish, Italian, Polish, Asian or Latin.

    Get an education. Work hard. Be responsible. Respect authority. Teach your children the same. Among others, these are all American values -- not white values. Adopting them doesn't require anybody to sacrifice their identity or self-worth -- as is evidenced by the presence of numerous Chinatowns, Polish neighborhoods, Italian festivals, etc.

    One can celebrate one's own ethnicity and, at the same time, practice American values.

    Why do you see that as an imposition?

    We are forced to learn only a European history (which for most part is not accurate) and their European culture & not taught our own.(Again is that EQUALITY?)

    If I recollect correctly, every major university offers a curriculum called "Black Studies". I wouldn't know for sure, but I assume most of the professors are black. All blacks who care to attend college are free to major in Black Studies. So, what's the problem? Other than the fact there are no jobs for graduates with a degree in Black Studies? Which isn't necessarily discriminatory, because there are no jobs waiting for graduates with a degree in Gender Studies, either.

    Federal tax is 18.5 cents per gallon. State taxes are tacked on top of that. Texas adds an additional 20 cents per gallon. California adds an additional 50 cents

    Thanks. Plumb forgot to list the taxes -- which are a major part of the price of gasoline. California, in fact, also imposes a sales tax on gasoline -- a tax on a tax, which can reach 10% of the gross cost. And, this year, a brand new carbon credit/cap & trade tax will add another ten cents-or-so per gallon.

    In the face of all these taxes, how can we possibly complain about the refiner pocketing something between a nickel and a dime per gallon?

    But the fact of the matter is that the rich DO get richer in a Democrat administration.

    The rich get richer in a Republican administration, too. But the middle class and the lower class get richer, as well.

    Widening "income inequality" is almost always a function of Democrat policies. The rich can always deal with them -- even profit from them. But the middle class gets crushed by higher taxes and greater regulation.

    In the fifty years since the start of the War on Poverty, the proportion of Americans under the poverty line has retreated only once -- during the Reagan administration.

    How do you have border control without fences?

    Actually, most borders on the globe are marked by rivers and mountain crests -- and are without fences.

    So far as the Rio Grande border is concerned, we can go to school on the nation that absolutely has to have a secure border: Israel.

    Their border with Jordan is the Jordan River. And there is no fence. Instead, there are advanced observation posts, technological listening posts and a highly mobile border force.

    This approach allows the farmers on both sides of the river access to its waters, while maintaining security.

    Previously, you were an unregistered "citizen-at-birth". Had you died between the time of your birth and the time of your registration, you were still an American "citizen-at-birth" and would've been buried as such.

    Born a citizen by statute, is not the same as natural born... by a long shot. The U.S. can pass a law tomorrow that makes every person born in Australia automatically a US citizen. That DOES NOT make them “natural born” citizens.

    More accurately, it would not make them "citizens at birth".

    U.S. citizenship law recognizes only two varieties of citizenship -- there are "citizens-at-birth" and naturalized citizens".

    In your example, the Australians would be "naturalized citizens". Thus, the example is irrelevant.

    Reposting for clarification. You say you were Naturalized? Your Father, being an American Citizen, automatically makes you an American Citizen as well, no matter where you were born.

    KC is absolutely correct.

    There was no need for GOPB to be "naturalized". He was born an American citizen.

    The source of the confusion might be the paperwork involved in registering the foreign birth of an American citizen. It is incumbent on the parents to notify the American Embassy or a Consulate of the birth. The Embassy or Consulate then issues a registration of the birth, stating that the child is an American citizen and subject to all the benefits thereof.

    I have heard people born in this circumstance refer to these documents as their "naturalization papers", but that's not what they are. They are his "citizenship papers".

    After fifty years of integration, I have mixed feelings. I wonder where the races would be today if integration and welfare had not been introduced. Would we have gradually integrated or remained segregated?

    I'm familiar with the time you're describing. Indeed, I alluded to it upthread.

    And I share your mixed feelings. Judicially forced integration was the sledge that shattered the modus vivendi between the races and forced us all to find a new balance.

    From its outset, I believed that forced integration would, in the end, undo many of the benefits that should've come from ending segregation. Block-busting and bussing set in motion "white flight" and ensured black resentment.

    I've forgotten exactly which judge it was, but one of the federal judges who ordered bussing repented on his death bed, calling it "the worst idea anybody ever had". <

    And that's exactly what it was. The convenience, safety and community link of the neighborhood school...gone! Huge sums invested in rolling stock rather than teachers and equipment. The wide disparity between the races in performance giving forth to a teaching regime that was no longer focused on merit-based student performance, but aimed at leveling grades and otherwise blurring the difference. To be blunt, bussing destroyed public education.

    Now, had segregation been removed from the equation without integration being judicially imposed, I believe we would've all found a new balance for ourselves, over time. Instead of a hostile takeover, we would've experienced a friendly merger. The professional black families would've moved across the tracks and been welcome among their peers in Bankers Heights. As a consequence, black children would've filtered from Douglass High over into Central High.

    Eventually, we all would've found our place within this altered society. By 2014, we wouldn't still be dealing with this problem...

    We have sweet-smelling kids but no major black-owned publishing companies that can reflect their sweet little faces in children’s books.

    There are fewer than 30 black-owned banks in the country, according to the Federal Reserve, compared with about 130 such institutions at the turn of the 20th century. You’d think black people would be seeking more community-oriented banks as alternatives to the big Wall Street firms that ripped them off during the Great Recession.

    Black-owned businesses are the second largest employer of black people, next to the federal government. But only 7 percent of small businesses are owned by blacks.

    Yet, there was a time when blacks had all of this. It was called the Jim Crow Era.

    It was pre-civil rights and segregation was the order of the day. Yet, black families thrived, black businesses prospered and black communities bore no resemblance to the urban ghettos of today.

    "At the very least, we could stop expecting people who hate us to save us."

    Right answer, wrong reason.

    1. Truly, it is high time that blacks stop expecting the government (read: Democrat party) to save them and go about the business of saving themselves.

    2. If each black undertook the responsibility for improving their own individual situation and quit tying their fortunes to the group, they would have a chance to get ahead.

    3. They need to rid their heads of this idea that the white man hates them and is holding them down. So long as they blame their difficulties on others, they won't recognize them and can't address them.

    4. Start with the recognition that being dependent is not a good way to go through life. Then recognize that there is one political party that encourages this dependence -- delivering free stuff in return for a vote. But that's ALL they deliver -- because they can't afford the dependence to become independence.

    5. So far as the existence of racism is concerned, I see a helluva lot more Al Sharptons around than I do David Dukes.

    Someone should educate this ?? tweeting that it was 9/11 NOT 11/9.

    European version. 11/9 equals 11 September.
