Cutter, the only thing your post shows is how profoundly little you actually know about black people.

Your assumption, your STEREOTYPE is that black people are nothing more than rap listening thugs and so their heroes are 50 Cent, Snoop, etc.

When if you actually KNEW black people, instead of basing your opinion on what you see of them on TV, you would know that simply is not true. Michael Eric Dyson, Cornell West, Amiri Baraka, Jesse Jackson, Dick Gregory, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maya Angelou, etc.

The simple reason that contemporary society does not have a person such as MLK, Malcolm, Eldridge, etc. is because history does not exist in a vacuum. You have to understand the era that these men lived was during the fight for Civil Rights. The fight to give blacks and minorities the most basic of human rights that white people had been enjoying since the inception of America.

Contemporary America does not have a problem as blatantly obvious as that. Don't get me wrong, there are still many obstacles minorities face such as institutional racism, and US Census Bureau, US Department of Justice, and US Department of Commerce statistics certainly indicate as much, but there is no large and blatantly obvious movement to undertake where a figure like MLK would come to the forefront of a struggle against injustice.

Just do yourself a favor and don't speak on racial matters because it's obvious how stunningly uneducated and ignorant on the matter you are.

If you would like to change though and learn some stuff, read some books by Michael Eric Dyson and Tim Wise.

Signed,
A white guy with a clue
