Re: “Local filmmaker Cash Michaels on Obama, Wake schools and race in N.C.

Its funny how all these people are complaining, as if this country or state has had serious discussion of race and racism. If its not media spinning it, its extreme ends of both sides trying to feed off the hate and ingnorance. I don't understand how this issue keeps getting swept under the rug. I mean if it was any other problem we would talk about it, but when it comes to racism people just want to ignore it.

Just like the ignorant statement "the biggest and most evident / obvious form of racism today is the racism against whites from the american government to "make up" for slavery which hasn't affected anybody in todays society." First off, its not "make up" for slavery, i say this again it is NOT "make up" for slavery but "attempt" to counter balance the discrimination that's been going on in this country from slavery to the present. I'm 30 years old and the first generation, in a family that's been here since slavery, to born with full rights as citizen. If you feel so strong about your rights think how I feel knowing there is seperate law that gives me those rights. Even with those rights my family still have to deal with discrimination from banks, jobs, businesses, people to this day. The fact that you are more concern about discrimination against Whites shows how FAR we must go to stop discrimination of all people. We got one Black President compare to how many Whites in governement, geez. The issue of the Tea Party is that they deny there are racist elements in their organization, instead of taking the stand that they don't support that type of behavior and will remove those elements when it happens. Just like when NAACP thought that Sherry Sherrod was being racist at one of their events they called for her removal. Even though it turned out that her words were taken out of context of what she was trying to explain.
