After Ferguson, 'Dear White People' Arrives Right On Time

Free Republic

They've got a howler in that article:

But the most important moment in the film is when Samantha White, defines racism: “Black people can’t be racist, she says. “Prejudiced, yes, but not racist. Racism describes a systemic advantage based on race. Black people can’t be racists since we don’t stand to benefit from such a system.” --- prospect dot org

How do you get a black man in the white house, when blacks are about 13-15% of the population?  How can such a thing happen?  If a white man became president in a country where they represented such a minority of such a size, there'd be a howl of protest for the disparity and the obvious "racism".

We have a racial spoils system that is inherently racist.  The people who benefit from it are black people themselves, but there's also a social cost. For these people do not truly advance the black people's cause as a whole, but advances but a small portion of them.  The rest are being exploited to benefit a few.   That's how I see it.

I get the impression that the left really doesn't want the black people to be well educated.  They need an underclass for political agitation.  I'd even say they want black people to underachieve so that they can point at it as an example of "white privilege".

Blaming some outside force for your problems does nothing to help you solve yours.
