I betcha when (not if) a major earthquake again strikes San Fran or LA, there will
be lots of charity donations from wealthy black, brown, yellow, white and maybe even
Mr. nubbage, I greatly appreciate your technical knowledge here and look up
your posts when I visit (not as often as I should). However I think you might be overly
optimistic on the above statement. We have had many opportunities for the Black and
Hispanic community to rise up and show leadership in catastrophies (most recently Katrina).
Shall we always wait for "the next time" while holding out hope? Shall the world wait?
The truth is that those groups have historically been the recipients of - yes I'm
going to say it - the White race's generosity and good will. That is not being racist,
just honestly assessing the world's history. You can point to eras during the slave
trade as a reason to condemn Whites, and I completely agree that it was abhorrent, but
mind you the Blacks in Africa were trading rival tribes into slavery then, and continue
to do it today. That does not excuse our behavior, but it does show that the White race
corrected its errors and have poured untold money, blood, and humanitarian aide into
the embetterment of Blacks. We have done yoeman's work in South America too in assisting
the Latino nations.
What do we get for it? A dependent class both here and abroad
that not only scarcely appreciates it, but largely despises us as well.
return to Mr. (or Mrs.?) Snerdly's question: Where are the instances of the Balck and
Hispanic peoples coming to the aide of Whites? Sorry, it cannot be found.
