    Of course they're putting a white face on it. That's the first thing non-white minority businessmen learn. If you want to sell a product in America, or especially in Europe, put a white face on it. If you want to demonize something, put a black face on it. They've been doing it since we got here.

    Workplace discrimination prompts 'whitened' job applications - BBC News

    Ethnic minority women face discrimination "at every stage of the recruitment process", a report by MPs says. But what is finding a job like for those affected?

    I don't know if everyone has seen this "Black in America" video by Soledad O'Brien, but skip to exactly 23:00 minutes and pay attention to what the Indian man says. Here it is in a nutshell:


    Why expect anything different?

    1. I didn't call you a liar, but if you want to own that........

    2. Yes, they are misrepresenting the facts

    3. Others have already done that. But you could actually do that yourself

    You seem to have issues which go well beyond this topic.

    The 1st comment was in response to a question asked.

    Note who put out the study: SAMHSA. :news:

    No and no. You and Kadijah are claiming the chart is wrong, BS and a lie even though I linked to the source in the post. You still back your claims with nothing. None of the content posted disproves the chart I posted. These tactics are the same tactics you and Kadijah employed in my Race and Crime thread in which you were both rightly banned as violators of Destee's Rules.

    It is a manipulation of the actual facts and thus IS wrong. Evidence was given representing everyone. The fact that you cant seem to deal with that speaks volumes to my previous post about you.

    Oh geez, I'm shaking in my boots. I was not banned for that. This again is another thing you are wrong about. Perhaps you should lay off the decalf. Or maybe better, seek help

    It is as I said: 80% (really about 81%) of all ILLICT drug users are white.

    What is interesting about the chart above that I and MOST black people were unaware of, is that whites use more CRACK cocaine than blacks, as well!


    P.S.
    Note who put out the study: SAMHSA. :news:

    ADDENDUM:


    This is what SAMHSA has to say about drug use by race:

    Any "graphs" presented that purport that SAMHSA says otherwise are bogus. Which, again, is why I don't discuss the black condition with white people. In fact, I've NEVER spoken to any white person on this forum from Day 1.... and anyone who says I did is mistaken. :)

    No, its not that you are a liar La Keesha T nor is SAMHSA lying, its about how the information is reported, or Kemetstry's main point, along with other undeniable facts not cited or reported in graphs. For instance, this corroborates my initial argument:

    [42] Because the white population is more than six times greater than the black population, the absolute number of white drug offenders is far greater than that of black drug offenders.[43] SAMHSA estimates that 111,774,000 people in the United States age twelve or older have used illicit drugs during their lifetime, of whom 82,587,000 are white and 12,477,000 are black.


    The above is from Kadijah's link source below:




    Significantly, not a lot of change over the two(2) year period -- 2009 to 2011.

    Records that going into research to make statistics are altered long before they are made public. It's called institutional racism and the reason it's plausible is because most racist whites are depicted as poor, uneducated and coming from poor family structure. But the reality is that Racism and White Supremacy has it's real culprits as affluent whites, well educated and come from good families. They are the ones who become directors, administrators, prosecutors, judges, politicians, CEO's, educators, scientists, writers and military commanders. These are the people who through long term strategies put in effect racist policies that shape the society. But once you figure this out then you'll know that eliminating racism in America is hopeless because it's not just poor uneducated whites but White Americans in general.
