You know, something that gets me really pissy is when people go, mess up a situation, and then call the people stuck in that situation names. Like people insisted on segregating neighborhoods, and not giving people true freedom after slavery. So finally, the black folk get some laws changed, and all seems good, right? Noooo, many of the poorer blacks are still stuck in that area, manufacturing jobs that used to actually pay something are moving out, and schools are attached to property tax, which in this area, means schools don't get squat. Your infrastructure is deteriorating, and basically, the change of laws hasn't changed the schools. Some people get bussed, but people complain too much about bussing, because it makes them uncomfortable.

So you go to a shitty school, don't get the tutors and tricks to game the tests, so people get all mad at you, because you're black, and blacks actually have to have worth to go to school. No matter that whites that were 'substandard' had been going to school for forever, scores only really become this big thing when blacks come in. Then when people are barred from going anywhere in life, they turn to crime, and then you call them inherently criminal. I don't know why people do that, but it pisses me off.

Although, I think people should read When Work Disappears. People don't read anything, then they think they can say anything, and it pisses me off.
