Bee's opinion! Equal opportunity has not arrived for all America. For centuries, America's rich, free White males purposely excluded all others groups. As time passed, other groups were provided some opportunity at the will and wave of the wand of America's rich, free White males. The wand of opportunity for Black Americans has been slow and next to none in its wave.
When America use laziness as cause for Blacks in poverty, America shows lack of knowledge of America's history. The rich free White male purchased Africans for economic reasons. The Slave industry was founded or should I say the slave industry was born, and the workers were chattel. Blacks were bought and sold to work, breeded like cattle to work, beat to submit and work more, and killed at the wave of the wand with no protection under the US laws.
Employment Opportunity for Blacks was solely at the will of the rich White male until the early 1960's. Even today poverty stats suspiciously reeks of racial discrimination. Highest rates of poverty in 2012 US, 35% Black; 34% Hispanic; 12% Asian, 9% White; A lot of poverty is contributed to slave wages.
2010 census data show racial demographics for US is 64% White; 16% Hispanic; 12% Black; 5% Asian; 1% American Indian and Alaska Native 2% two or more races. When I hear equal opportunity is racial entitlement, I can only think the speaker feels the rich free White male had the right idea when Black males were 3/4 human and Black women and children were disposable flesh.

Racial prejudice seems worse than ever in recent years, yet reported racial intolerance is lower than ever among younger generations. Is racism worse than ever or the same? Does it stand out because it seems so odd at a time when there is a black president and we are connected around the globe? Or is racism more subtle because those who remain uneducated or unwilling to accept the equality of all races recognize that they are the minority and hide it?
What can we do to advance racial understanding, tolerance and equality? How can we create new understanding without fighting against ignorance? How do we advance tolerance each day, in our hearts and with each other?

The Trayvon Martin case is getting ready to go to trial, and it has already invoked lots of emotions from a variety of perspectives. Questions are being asked all over the United States about the racial element of this case and also the importance of "Stand Your Ground" statutes throughout the country. Marshall, the Host of MarshallTalk said, "I believe the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case brings out the worst of many Americans. It's not horrible because we need to deal with these issues and hopefully make some corrections to the Justice System and if possible get rid of the so-called "Stand Your Ground" laws/statutes. As shameful as it may seem, in my opinion this case is really just about racism, which is the main purpose for the "Stand Your Ground" laws in the first place." Marshall also believes at some point the Good People of all ethnicities will stand up and fight for what is right, instead of ridiculous emotional, political, and historical biases. What do you think? Join in on the conversation, whether you agree or disagree with Marshall.
Interracial romance has been a point of contention in America since the first English settlers established colonies in the seventeenth century. In 1664 Maryland banned interracial marriage due to questions over whether the offspring of a black slave and a white person would be considered a free person or property. In following years, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and South Carolina instituted antimiscegenation laws which banned interracial marriage. In 1691 Virginia outlawed interracial couples and labeled their children as “that abominable mixture and spurious issue.” When slavery was abolished by the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865, many southern states instituted what were known as the “Black Codes.” In addition to stripping freed slaves of most of their newly acquired rights, these codes continued the prohibition of marriage between whites and blacks. This was based on the commonly held notion that Africans, and Native Americans as well, were inferior races and interbreeding would pollute the white gene pool. When Congress tried to override the “Black Codes” by issuing a series of laws from 1866 to 1875, the Supreme Court declared most of the legislation void and upheld the southern states’ right to outlaw interracial marriage. article by www.enotes.com/interracial-relationships-article

Join me on this weeks show for a real conversation with my guest Angela Weddle who grew up being bullied in the schools of New Orleans because she was “different in so many ways" and as a survivor of hurricane Katrina she knows how to make it in a world that is unsure of what category she fits under. She is an amazing artist, story teller and budding comedienne and she has found away to tell her story,share it through her work and help others all while coming from the perspective of being both a black AND a white woman..this should be interesting!
