Louisiana Weekly: A choice of colors

Louisiana Weekly

A choice of colors

“If you had a choice of colors, which one would you choose, my brothers?”

* Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions, 

* “Choice ofColors”
  
This just in…A new poll conducted by The Associated Press/Yahoo News in association with Stanford University discovered that there is still a wide racial gulf between Black and white Americans.  Alert the media!!!
  
I mean, who knew?
  
Most of the Black people who live in the United States do. 
  
It would be extremely difficult to go about your day and not see, feel and experience the racial animosity that still characterizes the color line in the 21st century. 

The study found that a significant number of white Americans still have negative feelings about Blacks.  Not surprisingly, many of those white Americans who admitted their feelings about Blacks believe that Blacks should bear most of the blame for the nation’s inability to move beyond race and discrimination. 

LaBruzzo, like former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, hails from Louisiana State University and represents the same Louisiana district that sent Duke and Sen.  David Vitter to Baton Rouge. A college education did very little to enhance LaBruzzo’s understanding of the history of U.S. race relations or the world in which he lives. Instead, his upbringing and education prepared him to take on his role as the colonizer of the world and a peg in the machine that is the white power structure.
  
Most whites don’t spend a great deal of time pondering the benefits they receive as a result of their membership in the whiteness club. But talk about it or not, membership has its privileges.
  
Most whites may not feel the need to talk about race because they can depend on the John LaBruzzos and David Dukes of the world to do their bidding.
