  1. IF AMERICA isn’t racist then why do you have to refer to “Whites” giving a “Black’ president another shot. Why do “Blacks” refer to themselves as African Americans? Why aren’t they Americans? Why can Blacks refer to each other as the “N” word but not a “White” person without be called pregitious,bigot, or racist? And why do “Whites” owe them anything for what happened 150+yrs ago. They “Blacks” like to play the race card, or didn’t you follow the presidential campaign? You’re really nieve if you think America isn’t racist.

  2. That’s why, in case you didn’t catch it, I disagree with IBD’s naivete.

  3. #1, The point of the editorial was not that there aren’t racial issues (which are not always necessarily driven by racism) but that the notion that black Americans can’t succeeded because of racism is patently false.

    In regards to blacks having racist attitudes toward whites, even if all black Americans were racist toward whites (which they are not) that would not make the U.S. a racist nation since black Americans make up a minority of the population.

    A lot of people refer to themselves as This-or-That American (African American, Asian American, Irish American, Polish American, etc) It’s regrettable in a way, but I don’t feel it’s necessarily done out of malice in most cases, it’s more a case of inertia. Most don’t even think about the non-necessity of doing so.
