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 green
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.
So I 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.
