Dr. Michael J. O’Connell, PainCare, New Hampshire recently queried, “Is it my imagination or are blacks more sensitive than ever to race, race language (i.e. racist), racial equality, equal pay for equal race, etc.?”
Am I wrong to suggest that blacks compared to just ten or twenty years ago are better educated, have more “high level” jobs, dominate all major sports, nearly dominate the entertainment industry and news outlets? Yet we hear more from (usually self appointed) black spokesmen that their race is disadvantaged. Clearly blacks have a ways to go (there needs to be more black NBA owners for example), but would one not think that if progress is made at a faster pace than ever before, that the ‘spokesmen’ would tone down the rhetoric.
And where does white man’s guilt and struggle for ‘atonement’ end, and responsibility of the black man for the black man begin? With a disproportionate number of blacks taking advantage of affirmative action and Welfare, why are blacks not getting the “leg up” they apparently want? Does the answer always have to lay in the hands of White America, in Congress for more laws, in the treasuries for more handouts?
