lol I swore I read that post this morning and it ended the black and white song or maybe my brain just checked out after that. Good thing it did.

Well, next time I have a question about what color to paint my house I'll just consult the King James Bible. Or not. I'm not entirely sure what the gist of all that was.

While he may have a point, 'cause don't get me wrong, some of my favorite music is made by black people, I think it was a little racist. I think there has become a double standard when it comes to this kind of thing. If a white actor came out and said white people are the most talented, he would be shunned, he would be called racist and his career would probably suffer. I will probably be considered racist for voicing this opinion.

What do you think?

Lenny Bruce once said the reason why so many Jewish people and black people were in show business was they couldn't find jobs anywhere else.

Jamie Foxx may think that black folks are the most talented people in show business, but white folks are far more talented at creating personal wealth and wielding political power.

Jamie Foxx should stop mouthing off about talented black people in show business, and do something about huge income disparity between black and white Americans in the United States. The average white American family has a total net worth of $113,000 while the average black family has a total net worth of only $5,600.

Jamie Foxx's net worth is $85 million so I doubt if he's going to rock the boat by complaining about the income disparity between blacks and whites in America.

Yeah, but I get sick to death of listening to white people gripe about how tough they have it. I mean, come off it. I do respect the fact that without black people's contributions we wouldn't have ragtime, jazz, blues or rocknroll. Even a lot of folk music is black and most people don't even know it. The banjo is also an instrument inspired by African instruments and it played a huge roll in defining truly American music. Even today, as we have recently seen, the laws of this country do not apply to black people the way they apply to everyone else.

White people complain about blacks getting into colleges with lower SATs but did you know whites can edge out Asian-Americans from top colleges with lower scores? Do you hear Asian-American people endlessly whining about that? No. Is it discrimination against them? Well, if whites feel it is discrimination to let in blacks with lower test scores over whites then it discrimination to let in whites with lower test scores over Asian-Americans.

White people gripe a lot and somehow think they are more entitled to do so and I have had a belly full of that stuff. I hear A LOT of racism come from white people every single day and most of them have no idea they are saying anything racist. You want to get cut slack from others, you gotta cut slack for others.

I'm not even going to bother looking this up because proves my point as written: Whites have no call to be griping and complaining as much as they do. They have most of everything.

That is funny Larehip. In the context that, whites say the same exact thing about blacks.

Damned if you do, and damned if you don't, hey?
