Study: Blacks with white
friends are ´less black´

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 3/23/2014 6:23:12 AM

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

Comments:
This doesn´t bode well. Decades of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the rest of the race hustlers and grievance mongers have pretty much destroyed any chance at racial harmony.

I have freckles, am I black or white? You people who compete and compare based on skin color are INSANE and you´ll have to stand before God and explain this consistent evil in order to cause destruction to others.

The article says they polled 212 students and then later says it was 1200 students. So which was it? Where were they from? It´s a small sample. I´ve only encountered random hostility from a black person once and that happened in the DC metro area. It was never like that when I was in the south, southwest, midwest, or west coast. Even in the DC area, I have friends who happen to be black and black friends of those friends don´t seem to care about me being part of their group. Is this problem geographically consistent? Is the problem worse in areas that are predominantly black, where the schools are not educating well, or where one political party dominates? There´s a lot of things to consider that the article does not question. It sometimes seems like this administration, the race hustlers OP mentions and others like rev. Wright, and the media are trying to separate Americans based on the color of their skin.

Until we begin to address the endemic anti-white prejudice of the black community, there will be no progress in race relations.

I have a good friend who is a former public school teacher in inner-city Chicago. She told me when trying to discipline black students, they would often state that she is trying to make them "act white". For example: doing their homework, using correct grammar, is trying to make them "white". This is racism and it is being taught at a very young age.

I´m from the deep south. I worked for 20 years in two different jobs. Both had about a 50/50 ratio of blacks and whites. What I learned is this: the darkness of the skin is very important. My beloved black friend once said "I didn´t go to the family picnic Saturday with my husband, his family has that black, black skin." My friend had lovely light chocolate skin. (Her young daughter looked just like her daddy but I didn´t point that out.)Then another friend at a different job said very young children are purposely keep as ignorant as possible so when they start school they qualify for SSI, which is a gov´t program for children with disabilities. And those are the only really racists comments I ever heard while working in Louisiana.

Sorry for the second but this article and comments reminded me of a great book on this subject- which was written about 15 years ago. Dr John McWhorter´s ´Losing the Race´.

It was a jolt then and I am certain that this particular mindset has not ebbed in the least since we first got a whiff of BHO.

I had a black co-worker several years ago and we got along very well. That was until he was around "the brothers". His demeanor, attitude, speech and mannerisms changed so completely, so much so that it was hard to believe that he was the same man. I was embarrassed for him.

Back in the 1930s, in Washington, D.C., if you were black and wanted to advance socially, there were two tests to pass.
The first was the electric fan test. If you stood in front of an electric fan and your hair didn´t move, you failed.
The second was the brown paper bag test. IF you were darker than a brown paper bag, you failed.

I guess this fool never saw the 60 Minutes segment that Leslie Stahl did approx. 2-1/2 decades ago. She actually found evidence at various college campuses that showed, on camera, that blacks actually were not only self segregating themselves, but were refusing any kind of reaching out by white students.

It isn´t the whites with a problem Mr. Barry. Look to your own community for a change instead of blaming other people for your problems, ok?

"Black" is a skin pigmentation. "American" is a national identity and cultural values.

Are we now to throw MLK under Rosa Parks´ bus, and return to judging people by the color of their skin? /s

The Middle East, always complex, is descending into a form of chaos that seems baffling. Bringing order to the complexity is Daniel P. Goldman, aka Spengler, writing in Tablet Magazine. A former Wall Street numbers guy, Goldman brings together a lot of demographic data expressed in useful charts, to lay out his case that time is on Israel’s side, and that the Muslims of the Middle East are engaged in a long-term battle, which he likens to the 30 Years War that devastated Europe in the 17th century: The region has seen nothing like it since the Mongol invasion of

President of the Heritage Foundation Jim DeMint stated that the White House is taking a dishonest, indirect approach toward immigration reform. “Greta, I found this statement extraordinarily dishonest,” DeMint said in an interview on Fox News following President Barack Obama’s remarks on immigration in Texas. “So there are so many things I want to respond to, but as we were saying right before he came on, illegal crossings had gone down until 2012. The year before, 6,500 unaccompanied minors had been apprehended. But in 2012, the president did something extraordinary with this DACA executive order, which basically said if you are

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

Ever since President George W. Bush said “Islam is peace” on Sept. 17, 2001, it has been politically shielded from any debate about its effects on its adherents or on the rest of the world. Muslim nations and pressure groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations have used political correctness as a weapon to punish anyone who dared to begin any debate on Islam by calling them “Islamophobes,” an accusation of racism. That era was ended by the lead editorial in the July 5 edition of The Economist, the prominent liberal British news magazine. Titled “The Tragedy of the Arabs,”

In an interview the other day, I was asked what the president might’ve been thinking when he instigated the chaos on our borders with his talk of pen-and-phone amnesty. Half a dozen things went through my mind. Maybe he’s trying some sort of Cloward-Piven maneuver: an attempt to overwhelm our welfare state to the point where we replace it with “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.” Or maybe he’s just trying to flood the population with Democrat voters. Or maybe he feels America stole its southland from Hispanic people anyway and it’s up to him to

Back in the heyday of the British Empire, a man from one of the colonies addressed a London audience. "Please do not do any more good in my country," he said. "We have suffered too much already from all the good that you have done." That is essentially the message of an outstanding new book by Jason Riley about blacks in America. Its title is "Please Stop Helping Us." Its theme is that many policies designed to help blacks are in fact harmful, sometimes devastatingly so. These counterproductive policies range from minimum wage laws to "affirmative action" quotas. This book untangles the controversies,

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
