    Its always interesting watching white people react to a movement they created; as they pretend to have not created it.

    My problem starts with the exclusion type of things like "Black Miss America" and others. That's where the separation is a problem. We can all celebrate or acknowledge Black history month but we can't all participate in Black Miss America but Black can participate in the "Miss America" pageant.
    Some of those things came about because of exclusionary tactics by the Whites.
    The Black Chamber of Commerce, for example, and, yes, "Black Miss America"
    At some point those kinds of organizations must reach a conclusion that they have become superfluous, and willingly disband, or merge with the generalized organization.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    My Issue Is, when politicians are telling me that I live In a wonderful Multi-cultural Eutopia when we all blissfully Integrate, an event like this actually creates the divide so fiercely frowned upon by the establishment.


    Does it annoy you when every time you see a picture of Jesus, its a white man?

    Or when the hero who saves the day is white?

    Or when the dictionary defines white as wonderful and black as horrible?

    Does that annoy you?

    Would you understand it annoying blacks?

    Would it annoy you if whites were arrested 70 times more than blacks?

    If whites were hired 70% less than blacks?

    If whites were convicted in courts 67% more than blacks?

    Would these things annoy you? If they were really what your race was has lived and is living?

    Quite the opposite. My objection Is solely based on establishments segregating us and race when they should be promoting assimilation and Integration. All the time we have organisations promoting a difference between black and white, the divide will continue throughout history.

    I like what the French celebrate, " Via La Difference", I don't want to be a Borg and assimulated. I like being Black. And I like knowing my history. And I like celebrating it; its just that the history of what Whites did, and what Blacks did, is embarrising to some Whites. Your ancestors had a way of crushing people and then critisizing how they tried to get up under the weight; Its not leveraged thinking and reconciliation; so they confront todays issues with that same unbalanced racial firguring.

    The trouble with the sort of assimilation you are talking about Oscar is that it expects the whole world to assimilate with the White Anglo Saxon way of life and doesnt consider cultural differences. Assuming that everyone should suddenly do and be what we are. It's arrogant and divisive.

    Why should a West Indian for example, be expected to drop everything that makes them what they are and become "one of us" whatever that is

    And that, Is exactly what those against mass Immigration say !!! To expect anyone with a diametrically opposed culture to ours to assimilate with us was nothing but a pipe dream by the Labour Party.
