6th floor... "I'm all for it, but only if they promise to keep the crimes being committed by blacks also in the black community."
did you intend a knee-jerk racist response that is totally off topic? i don't understand how such stereotyped thoughtless answers get "liked". plus, i would rather have the crimes committed by mostly white bankers, investment firms, and insurance firms out of my neighborhood because they stole sooo much more from us all.
it is a tough question molsonator posed... should minority groups band together for mutual support in un-official ways; is that a form of reverse discrimination.
it is obviously wrong for the majority to band together in such a way, intentionally or in some documented way... but the silent unackowledge but largely understood discrimination that occurs already works against minority communities to great effect. to think blacks don't continue to experience predjudice against them from the majority white community is wrong.
nobody can really believe that one race or nationality is prone to criminality or lazyness or drug use more than any other group. therefore scientifically, these are matters of cause and effect.
perhaps maybe it is a case that every white benefits a little by every small silent act of discrimination that occurs... one by one... straws on a camel's back. to be sure lots of whites still fail and many minorities are able to rize above tough circumstances... but with a lot more effort than most of us would had to have made. and to be sure, the hopelessness that those innumerable acts of hidden predjudice can add up and lead to criminality, helplessness, and drug use with some.
in an ideal situation, no, reverse-discrimation shouldn't exist... but this is no ideal situation and the black community trying to find ways to pull themselves out of the hole in which they are stuck can't do anything but help everyone
