    *You might have to turn your volume up.

    @59:15 -- "Job fair draws thousands." South Central Los Angeles, at a time when the government(especially during the Reagan era), with the help of the media, said Black people didn't want to work; they wanted to sit on their butts, hang in streets, drink "40 ozs," collect welfare, sell drugs, and/or do drugs (... drugs the US Intelligence agencies intentionally funneled into Black neighborhoods/lands). I remember these arguments well. And like always, nearly all White citizens of the US started repeating them in their own arguments (effects of media manipulation).

    Hardly anyone knows the truth of that time due to increased media programming, propaganda to sell a War on "Drugs" to Americans (just like other wars have to be sold). The reality in Black communities across the US was that there weren't enough jobs (jobs = income = money). Right before the CIA's cocaine hit Black communities across the US in the early 80's, the corporations and companies that used to operate in Black neighborhoods, or within a reachable distance, "had to" conduct massive lay-offs and close down their factories and businesses, leaving many Blacks across the US without employment; making them instant government dependents. This is the exact same thing that is occurring, and being complained about, in the US at this moment ... but now Whites are being effected, and now taking government assistance is the "Ok thing to do" because there are no jobs due to lay-offs and closures.

    {That's what that particular type of propaganda-through-media does ... advanced technology only offers better propaganda/mind control.}

    After the introduction of the CIA's cocaine, the drug war-zones which sprang up ran away even more employment and future business; with racist, scheming banks, landlords, land owners, developers, and more attacking Black people's wealth and attempts at wealth creation. Soon after the start of the cocaine/crack epidemic, during the War on "Drugs," the government cut the assistance programs Blacks were receiving from them (and the average taxpaying American), along with funds for schools (... free lunch, music programs, new equipment, books, etc.). That says a lot.

    While all of this was happening, for the entire time it was happening, through television, radio and print, the media and government constantly pushed the beliefs that Blacks weren't rising in wealth due to laziness, a desire to leach off others (collect government assistance) and many more incredibly slanderous accusations said for the World to hear. And this was done intentionally! And most White people believed it ... and there were Blacks who did also.

    {While the media kept Americans ("White people") up-to-date on how much "housing them" ("the Blacks") in prison costs them, the entire time, and still to this day, it was white-collar criminals ("White people") who were costing them far more money (think about Wall Street now). But that's not the understanding that was being given by the media during the War on "drugs,"}

    This is what they did to intentionally smear the image of Blacks in the United States (and this is no where near the extent of what was done to Blacks in the US just within the past forty years). And it wasn't being presented to one person, it was being presented to the whole World. These are crimes against humanity. These are crimes against the laws of the land -- the laws of the United States of America. But what has happened to resolve this? What will happen to resolve this?

    *A popular term which describes the attack through the media would be "demonizing."




    Further Understanding:
    Of the following links of information, I've read the first part of the first one, seen all of the second one a few times, and skimmed through the last one. Don't pass it up just because I didn't go through them, because from what I could tell, there's some extremely valuable information in within them, especially if you live in the US.

    Study: Many New York City Employers Discriminate Against Minorities, Ex-Offenders
    PRINCETON, N.J., April 1 (AScribe Newswire) -- Black applicants without criminal records are no more likely to get a job than white applicants just out of prison, according to a Princeton University study of nearly 1,500 private employers in New York City.
    The study, "Discrimination in Low Wage Labor Markets," was conducted by sociology professors Devah Pager and Bruce Western. It is the largest and most comprehensive project of its kind to date.
    The study, which investigated discrimination against young male minorities and ex-offenders by employers, also showed:
    - Young white high school graduates were about twice as likely to receive positive responses from New York employers as equally qualified black job seekers.
    - Ex-offenders face serious barriers to employment; a criminal record reduced positive responses from employers by about 35 percent for white applicants and 57 percent for black applicants.
    - Even without criminal records, however, black applicants had low rates of positive responses, about the same as the response rate for white applicants with criminal records. Hispanics also faced discrimination by employers, but were preferred relative to blacks.
    "The results of this landmark study are deeply disturbing and highlight the need for strong enforcement of the New York City Human Rights Law," said Patricia Gatling, commissioner of the New York City Commission on Human Rights, which assisted in the study. In New York City it is illegal for employers to discriminate on the basis of race or a criminal record.
    The researchers presented the results of their study at the Population Association of America's annual meeting in Philadelphia on March 31 and are preparing a paper for submission to an academic journal.
    "A lot of people are skeptical that African Americans still face discrimination in the job market. But even in a diverse city like New York, the evidence of discrimination is unmistakable," Pager said.
    Since 1972, the U.S. prison population has increased seven-fold, and that upsurge has affected young black men more than any other group. Research shows that young black men have a 28 percent chance of winding up in prison. About 60 percent of black high school dropouts will go to prison by age 35.
    "The statistics from our study suggest that employer discrimination against minorities and ex-offenders has significantly undermined job opportunities for young black men with little schooling," Western said.
    The study used an experimental audit methodology in which teams of young men applied for real job openings throughout the city, presenting the same qualifications and experience. By recording which applicants were invited back for interviews or were offered jobs, the study shed light on how and when an applicant's race or criminal background may be used as a screening mechanism by employers.
    The study also found that minority employers were more accepting of minority applicants and job applicants with prison records. The researchers found no evidence, however, that educational credentials helped counter the stigma of incarceration.
    The study goes beyond earlier attempts to measure employment discrimination. Previous studies have been conducted on a relatively small scale. New York City, by virtue of its size and diversity, offers a large applicant and employment pool and a wide variety of industries. The researchers sent 13 applicants on nearly 3,500 job interviews with 1,470 private companies ranging from restaurants to manufacturing to financial services. All jobs were entry level.
    Further, in a departure from previous studies that included black and white men only, this study included Latinos, who account for 20 percent of New York's labor force and also are a significant part of the low wage labor market.
    "The research of professors Pager and Western will guide policy makers not only in New York City but in other urban areas with large and diverse populations," said Anthony Shorris, director of Princeton's Policy Research Institute for the Region.
    The study was funded by the National Science Foundation, the JEHT (Justice, Equality, Human Dignity and Tolerance) Foundation and the Policy Research Institute for the Region at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. The New York City Commission on Human Rights provided office and administrative assistance. Key staffing support was provided by the Legal Action Center.

    But wait ... look at the title of this news story/article on the study. If you were White, would you have read a story/article with that title? You don't think they could have come up with a better title? "Minorities," followed by a comma, then "Ex-Offenders"? Really? You gotta love this country.



    For those who think of and/or state other reasons besides racism:
    The Princeton study was done in such a way that it eliminated virtually every other factor, besides racism and prison history, that would cause a Black person to not be hired. No, they didn’t wear baggy pants, have crazy hair styles, speak Ebonics, and so on -- the reasons that were, and still are, normally given as to why most Blacks can’t get jobs. Those who conducted the study made sure all applicants matched as much as possible, except for race and prison record, even their experience, schooling, and city of residence was accounted for. With that, this study was done by one of America’s beloved, most highly esteemed schools, Princeton; and in New York City of all places!

    I can remember when this study was released, I watched the media, and the nation, to see what would be done. Do you know what was done? The same thing that’s always been done, nothing. Was there some big outrage as in “I can’t believe this is happening”? No. It was mentioned once on the news, and then passed up and ignored. That shows you the act that’s being put on by most people in this country (not all), especially those in power. If they cared and actually didn’t think there was discrimination in this country, then those in power would have had a reaction of disgust, and would have taken action. This study would have become an issue. If they wanted, this study could have become an issue that decided the next president for them. The fact that none of this has happened says that they don’t care. Each time something is shown to be undeniably racist against Blacks as a whole, there’s silence, but nothing is done. After the situation dies down, it’s back to denying racism again (denying what was just proven to be fact). That’s a person who doesn’t care about racism, truth, or justice for all; only pretending to.

    *That is what you call "maintaining the status quo."

    "Playing the Education Card"
    Starting at 6:55 of the video - "This is where education comes in." I didn't know "Education" was still being used to counter arguments stating why Blacks weren't rising in America. That was a favorite during the 80's and 90's.

    In 1954, the US Supreme Court declared racial discrimination in schools illegal (only 58 years ago). What most don't know is that it changed almost nothing. Nearly all Blacks were forced to remain in the same schools due to the racism of White schools. After the ruling, Black schools still received less funds/money than White schools, so books, equipment, meals, and more remained substandard. This means that although the law was passed, nearly all Blacks remained stuck in substandard schools with substandard teachers and substandard learning tools. The last time I heard of this, it was still going on in the 90's.

    In the past, because people with power knew of Black’s lack of education, they promoted the idea that lack of education was “the problem,” the reason Blacks couldn’t gain wealth; all the while the true reason was continued racism and plots against them. Saying that a lack of education was “the problem” placed all blame on Blacks, and none on the country or government. Many Blacks looked at things on the surface, and believed that education was “the problem” because it seemed to fit. Many Whites, still being racist, went with the idea because it seemed to fit and it placed blame on Blacks. Today, there are people who still state and/or believe that education is “the problem.” Education is not going to pay the bills or put food on the table at that time (presently, when it's needed); food, as does shelter, comes by money, which comes from a well paying job. It also takes money to be educated. And where does money come from? A job. And even if you did get a college education, being Black while educated will not ensure you a job that pays enough, or that pays like a White person's job. How many years was it said that "statistics show that a Black person with a college degree will earn about the same as a White person with a high school diploma"? If an educated Black person will make about the same as an undereducated white person, then it’s obvious that education is not “the problem” -- the reason Blacks aren't gaining in wealth. And don't forget about the Princeton study. How is education going to combat that? A lack of education is the reason? What a joke. The main reason Blacks don't rise in wealth in America is racism in America.
    (Here’s a perfect example the argument for racism as the main problem and education as the main problem: http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/6470 )



    When it comes to wealth, nothing has changed but the way Blacks are presented to the citizens of the America. That's it. Most Americans people believe everything they see on screen and in print, so however someone/something is portrayed, that's what they'll believe. What those in power did in the 1980's was allow more Black people to become entertainers (sports, music, movies); entertainers have wealth, and are shown to the public/to citizens through Media; as a result, over the years, and with society's increased addiction to entertainment, Americans encountered more and more Blacks who were "doing good" and more and more Blacks who were "rich" (more and more "successful" Blacks), giving the illusion that Blacks were doing better, and even great. ... but in reality ....

    {Almost no rapper has the amount of money he or she, or he-she, says they have or appears to have (and this has been true for decades); nearly all of them only have thousands of dollars "on-hand" (total amount in the bank, at home, in their pockets, etc.). One argument would be to say or present information that shows some rappers to be "worth" millions or billions of dollars. Do note, when "worth" is being used through mass media in reference to the "rich," it is almost always meant to define something different than how much money a person has "on-hand." Here's what they mean: If everything that person owned and controlled was sold off, the amount of money left over after paying their debts and obligations would be their "worth"/"net worth." It's not as though they have that amount of money sitting in the bank. For them to get that amount, it would mean to have nothing.}

    Before and during the years the corporations and companies were taking away employment, Blacks were limited to jobs that only paid the lowest of wages, due to racism, keeping Blacks as a whole holding little to no wealth. The years before this, they had even fewer lower wage jobs they could obtain, due to racism (... could only be a maid, nanny, server, cook, gardener, farm-hand, etc). Before that, they were slaves.

    Blacks and employment in America .... Blacks gaining wealth in America .... Blacks leading better lives in America ....

    The Land of Opportunity? For whom?
    Just who is it that is entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Not Black people.

    {That's just like a corporation or corporate product to get away with making false claims for years.}

    {If it's been shown for hundreds of years that people like you, your kind, don't have opportunity in the land you are in, don't you think it's time you leave (exodus)?}





    FYI: Black people have never had any of the rights Americans are complaining about losing today. Never.





    All Glory to Yahweh/Jehovah.

    We got played, and still getting played.

    If you have data such as this on Blacks in America, a Black candidate for President preaching hope and change would gain many votes from Blacks.

    The first thing Obama did when he got elected was give Trillions of dollars to the very people who keep Black's wealth, opportunity, and hope at a minimum. Trillions of dollars to them! And they also caused the chaos in the first place. Wow. Blacks have been "had" for sure. Tricked. A final "slap in the face." The black "nail in the coffin." And if he get's re-elected, and is the one to bring in their New World Order with chaos occurring first, Black people would probably be blamed and hunted down. That's crazy, but it's true. If a large percentage of the Whites in America lose everything in Great Depression conditions or worst, it's going to have to be taken out on somebody (not done by all Whites). I'm not trying to scare anyone, but that's the truth. That, occurring is highly likely. There were racist Whites hunting Blacks during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina ... and they were doing it for fun. Let a Black man be responsible for them losing it all ....


    I know I say Black people should leave ... but go where ... I don't know. How and when, I don't know. Most Black people wouldn't even want to go.

    Brown vs Board of education was about the Black elite (10%) being able to advance to any white school or college of choice not for the masses as it was presented. Whites are cool with blacks in jobs as long as its not too many of us.

    We can't afford to waste our resources etc. disputing every tactic our peoples enemies resort to...

    We also can't go on presuming it's just a us (blacks) vs them (whites) conflicts, as though we're the only two people who did and do count!

    We're not true rivals for control of the power and wealth of this nation or this planet...

    FYI...
