Who locks the chains of racism?

From New 14 Carolina...

Smart black students being accused of "acting too white" is an issue Triangle educators are debating at a youth and race conference this week.

Students say the stigma is keeping some of their peers from doing well in school.

Tenth grader Anais Guzman is on the honor roll. She says some of her peers see the achievement as acting too "white".

"They can get high grades but they don't want to because they'll be considered as acting white, so they put white people down,” Guzman said.

That's the argument some educators say is fueling the achievement gap in North Carolina schools.

This has been a factor for decades, but rather than address it, poverty pimps such a Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and their allies in the Elite Media ignore it and blame white people in general for all of Black people's problems, thus perpetuating the problem, by ignoring the cause. They don't stop at school children, though...

From WorldNetDaily...

In an editorial arguing for "diversity" on the U.S. Supreme Court after the nomination yesterday of Samuel Alito, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel suggested Justice Clarence Thomas doesn't count as a black. 

The daily's editorial board, lamenting the choice of a man to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, opined today: "In losing a woman, the court with Alito would feature seven white men, one white woman and a black man, who deserves an asterisk because he arguably does not represent the views of mainstream black America."

In my experience most people, in general, are fairly naive and unknowledgeable about the law and the Constitution. We should hope that all of our Supreme Court Justices do not represent the views of mainstream America, otherwise we'd be in some serious trouble. What the MJW is lamenting is that Thomas isn't one of those gullible, unknowledgeable types that Liberals can so easily sway into their line of thinking. In that aspect, Thomas fails to represent both Black Americans and Americans of all races, since we've got a lot more gullible people that not (Fortunately, with gullibility comes apathy, therefore the gullible are less likely to actually vote)

Other Democrats also hold Thomas to a different standard...

Last December, a conservative black group asked for an apology from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for criticizing Thomas purportedly because he doesn't, as an African American, adhere to Democratic Party policies. 

Asked about Thomas as a possible chief justice, Reid said in an NBC "Meet the Press" interview, "I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court." 

Without providing details or evidence, Reid said, "I think that his opinions are poorly written. I just don't think that he's done a good job as a Supreme Court justice." 

Wendell Talley of the national leadership network of black conservatives, Project 21, responded, "Senator Reid has revealed the intolerance found on the political left for minorities who do not reside on their ideological plantation."...

Project 21 member Mychal Massie, a WND columnist, said he considered Reid's comments to be "among the boldest and most unambiguously racist public attacks since the day when lynchings were commonplace and Orval Faubus and Bull Connor openly used their political power to keep blacks down."

Now, weren't Orval Faubus and Bull Conner, both Democrats?
