Is there a Black psychology problem…? 2014-11-26, 08:53:59 Well, we've recently seen what happened in Ferguson… (We've seen much more, over the years. I'm old.) What we have yet to see is a coherent explantation for why Blacks are more violent, less intelligent and more "prolific" than Whites…Would my (more) Liberal brethren please explain to me why this shouldn't matter?Eric Holder derided my country, for not openly discussing race relations… In a sense, he was right when he called us cowards: (fill in the blank)Discuss? (I doubt that's possible.) Rant and rave; call me a racist — that's going to happen; and, of course, it should! [A "racialist"? C'mon, let's stop pussy-footing!] (But Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, et al., would, too! If you don't agree, you're a racist!) I am a —sort-of racist: I believe evidence from observation (of the real world) matters.So do people — I mean, for the Libs among us, to say that people matter, as well as that others believe that evidence does. (Okay. I know I've gone out on a limb, there…)Here in the United States (because of our history) we have a serious problem with regards to "race relations"… Because we don't really want to discuss our history.I mis-keyed, and this post "disappeared" — as often happens, on the Net.I thought, "Oh, well." And considered letting it go… (After all: If the Atty. General of the U.S. can't goad people into consideration, what is the likelihood I can?) But it was easy to retrieve…(Is this what Sang means by "free" speech? )Are we ready to discuss race relations?Most people whom I've broached the subject with prefer to avoid it. (They say "race" is an inappropriate concept — sort-of like that of "intelligence," which we all know doesn't matter!) Yet these are the people who want race consciousness enshrined in statutory quotas; the "quality of a man's character" be damned!I'd disagree, because we still seem to have serious problemsWell, I've vented a bit… Been as incoherent as usual. (Pissed-off lots of folk I respect…) AND brought up a subject that can't be talked about, in polite company…(That's one of the reasons I come here!)Help me out here: What am I missing?Why do we still obsess about race?
