    As when we spoke earlier today..I still don’t know if I totally agree. I think african american – faced with the situations of their time (slavery, oppression, fact that they were considered property, not allowed to read, kkk, etc) has achieved great accomplishments. Now I do believe that if they did not have these major road blocks (that can deflect any human-being from reaching their full potential and beyond) they could have achieved much more..

    Even through all this placed before african americans we are the inventors of the traffic light, the blood bank, elevator, electric lantern, gas mask,and many many more which affect all people today in our century. Also not to forget the hip hop movement.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is that it looks like to me your looking at black achievement through a tunnel and focusing on the area of …race relations. We have many other achievements that are not race related and I think that should definitely receive credit as achievements.

    Tito, this is what I’ve been fearing from our youth. Has our society progressed that quickly in 45 years where the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement can be brushed off? Are you serious!!!???

    In no way, shape, or form can African Americans feel that we’ve completely assimilated into American (White America’s) society. It’s not going to happen! Skin color or for that matter any physical differences is a sure way to alienate a specific group from the majority. Now that majority is starting to change, we shall see certain barriers come down but we shouldn’t forget our past or take it lightly.

    How old is America, and we are just getting a Black President? For that matter, how long has it been since women and Blacks had the right to vote? Brother, we’ve got a very long way to go!
