    That's what I am thinking too.

    How exactly?
    They have accepted embraced the economic system, education, language, culture, and values while maintaining their own cultures. They, unlike Blacks, have chosen to assimilate into our culture instead of blaming their horrible past and their many differences on Whitey, and demanding handouts for ancient real or current imagined wrongs.

    They don't continually hold their hands out in front of their portly bodies demanding more "free" money and a larger slice of "equality." They go to work, start businesses, and send their kids to school to learn, not disrupt.

    You are most likely attempting to negate his comments by pointing out concaves of Asian cultures within our cities. That won't work within the entire spectrum. Blacks have carved out a unique niche in a culture that they should have long since embraced, thrived, and succeeded. Their continued plight is due to their culture, politics, and choices. Celebrating a thug, rap, bad boy culture where baby momma has 16 kids by 10 "fathers" is not the way to thrive.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    A large segment of the urban black population does not know or believe that they are actually about a tenth of the population. People like Francis Cresswell and Len Jeffries have been telling them that they are actually the majority. The same goes for the Mexicans in the American Southwest, they wear t-shirts that say, "Not a minority!" People really do believe that what they see through their window is the way things are.

    BTW, this race war thing comes around now and then. When the Great Society was proposed, it was labelled a wedge to prevent a race war. In a way , that's what welfare does. People who have houses, AC, Cable, and food don't make the best revolutionaries.

The "clinging to guns and God" comment? Not to mention that ever since, any, and I do mean ANY criticism of Obama was deemed as racist on every level. And now this whole Martin shooting is the icing on the cake and the fuse is lit and it will explode in November if Dear Leader is not re-elected. The enraged blacks(the one's who were enraged in the first place and who are always enraged) are going to use his defeat as an excuse to riot all over the country. Mark my words. This WILL happen. And Obama and his collection of race pimps are going to be to blame.

    This is an interesting fantasy you are indulging in.

    Go on, tell me how you imagine this race war will play out and end.

    It would have been better if they had an actual white shooter to hold up but they have never been known to allow facts to get in the way, they just continue to become more absurd.
    I'm curious about "the white male vote".

    Could you please elaborate on which vote is "the white male vote"?

Why is educational achievement by black students sometimes mocked as "acting white"?

Single parent families? Blacks have been in this country longer than recent immigrants, but yes, their numbers are significantly higher. Is it because of a concious effort of the predominant white culture to hold them back, or are there other factors?
    These are what I call "good questions".

    You do understand that candidates target certain demographics. For example, the women vote, the hispanic vote, the black vote, the evangelical vote, etc. This does not mean that every single woman will vote a certain way..but the likelihood of that demographic as a group, will vote a certain way.
    Are you trying to slip a little "you racist!" with that question? Why yes, yes, I believe you are. Try again.

    Sure, I understand that. "Identity politics" is the hot thing these days.

    So who is targeting the "white male vote"? Who is the candidate/party/group/whatever of the "white males"?

    You submit, and I accept, that candidates, parties, etc. target certain demographics. So I'm asking, who is targeting the "white male" demographic?
