Everywhere you look, advertising has black people in it. The latest one was for a 529C college savings, which showed a black child and his grandfather. Any college website you open shows smiling black students in clean cut white person style apparel. And that's the point. These blacks are staged in white environments by white people who assume that blacks want the same things white people do! But do they?
The President tells his black constituency that "This is such a wealthy country, why shouldn't it be
just spread around"? In other words, all blacks have to do is vote Democratic and they will receive cash payments, because that's "justice"! White people are deluding themselves! Blacks don't want to go to college! Blacks don't want to save for the future to get ahead! Blacks don't want a college education to acquire a skill and gain employment. All they want to do is march on the capital with Jessie Jackson to get their cash payout!
Interestingly enough, Jessie Jackson thinks the Federal Government should "do something about discrimination in the Hi Tech industry"! The absence of black programmers is prima facie evidence to Jessie that "white guys and Asian guys" are discriminating against blacks! What he wants is that in order for a company to get an IT contract with the Feds, they have to have a certain quota of black programmers! (And Jessie has a girl friend they can put on the payroll for $80K a year! Just don't ask her to do any coding! That would be discriminatory!)
But the reality is, the reason there are not sufficient black programmers is that there are insufficient blacks willing to do the work! It's a long miserable and difficult slog to acquire coding skills! And if Jessie has been telling me all I have to do is march on the capital, why should I put up with all the brain damage of code camps?
Also, if a young black shows promise and is getting good grades and is interested in doing something like this, his peers beat him up and deride him for "GOING WHITE"! If the Jessie Jacksons of the world are REALLY interested in helping blacks climb out of poverty, it's this cultural mores that needs to be changed. It isn't "going white": it's "going middle class".
