  1. I have been thinking about this subject pretty seriously lately and I have to be honest about what I think. I don't see why people are having tea parties ...isn't Obama giving tax breaks to 95% of the people in America?
  2. McCains class rank in College was 894 out of 899 students in College BTW for anybody interested.
  3. What large companies have you worked with because the large majority of people I know that work for those companies are still white. Which is fine but you all make it seem that black people are overrunning everything. The reason networks like BET and Ebony magazine exist is because the mainstream mainly cators to the majority which are white people. There are jobs for black actors and models here in there but that is not mainstream. Also if you are white try reading an Ebony magazine or watching BET, I bet it would be wierd seeing all those black people, that is how many black people feel
  4. That study didn't say that blacks were superior just because they are black in anyway at all. It was used to find out more about racism in the job market.
  5. It is only for entry level positions but here is a study that shows white convicts are as likely to get a job from a white employer as blacks. http://www.nyc.gov/html/cchr/pdf/race_report_web.pdf http://www.dmiblog.com/archives/2007/09/wh...kely_to_be.html http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m135...08/ai_n15681393
  6. And many blacks know the racism that many white people practice in this country...
  7. That is true but people can say that about Reagan's policies as well. People just say Reaganomics worked with no explanation at all. I've searched and I see it on this board as well and that goes off without a hitch. In fact, in my studies, one project I took on was to research what the final effects of Reaganomics were, and after reading tons of articles, looking at economic indices...there is a total hung jury. Some can say it worked because the economy recovered after it was implemented, others can make a case that the economy recovered despite it. Too many interdependent factors, so
  8. Well if I were to play devils advocate I would say that I heard Obama say, “no president should ever hesitate to use force – unilaterally if necessary, not only to protect ourselves . . . when we are attacked, but also to protect our vital interests”
  9. Well if he fails miserably like some of you all say he will, then people can use his views as an example of what doesn't work. A Professor of mine told me today that only after Republican Presidents do we get a recession, I looked into it and sure enough it has been true so far.
  10. Ron Paul talks a little about Obama here. In Obama 's defense I heard him say that he is going to ignore medical marijuana.
  11. Well if they asked for my opinion I would voice it because 9 times out of 10 they would want you to be honest. It is not nice if I go up to a total stranger though and say "That dress makes you look fat" my input is not wanted and I really don't think I would care all that much too say something. It would get me no where.
  12. This kid in this video is acting up on live television. He kinda irks me when he smacks his mom. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kn18H3FKDV4 I don't know what I would do if I was in his moms situation but I guess it is partly her fault. She said she was petrified because of her son, yeah right...She seems like she is sucking up to the camera and trying to contain herself.
  13. My question in the title isn't sufficient in what I was really trying to ask. I should've typed, "Is It Moral For Parents To Spank Their Children?"
  14. If your position is that they do, under what circumstances? What Limitations should exist? If your position is that they do not, how should parents discipline children? How should they deal with inappropriate behavior? Do you think spanking is effective? etc... I'm pretty much clueless about what to think right now.
  15. http://blogs.abcnews.com/screenshots/2008/...wood-tells.html It takes a certain something to pick a fight with Dirty Harry. Apparently, Spike Lee has it. At the Cannes Film Festival in May, Lee, whose next film, "Miracle at St. Anna," is about an all-black U.S. division fighting in Italy during the war, slammed Clint Eastwood over his 2006 Iwo Jima movies, "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters From Iwo Jima," saying the filmmaker overlooked the role of black soldiers during World War II. "He did two films about Iwo Jima back to back and there was not one black soldier in both of
