The following idea applies to those with a limited view and understanding of minorities, such as black people.
The challenge: pack your bags. Move into a black neighborhood. No suburbs, no rich family, even the small town people, I want all of you to once pack your bags and live in (or walk down or make a friend, whatever contact you wish to make, in) a black neighborhood...or any neighborhood that has what people would call "minorities" in them. The neighborhood doesn't have to be bad, really. Just any one in random, so you can get the full gist of what we have to deal with, and why the majority of what you believe in simply does not apply to us. Trust us. Some of the things you believe in just plain don't work so well with us.
For those who believe in values where people don't have a single clue about people other than a stereotype, I want them to put away their inhibitions and see what is really up. Anything that we are all doing wrong, let them guide us and tell us exactly what we are doing wrong. And we will do the same thing for you. Trust me. You have some bad juju that you impose on people, including your kids, too.
Do you notice that some black people try to move into a nice neighborhood, where we assume white people live? The reason we do that is not to learn about you per se, but that we are sick of the ghetto life, or being faced with a bad neighborhood aura. After all, we equate small towns with what we call "the hood", so everyone wants to rise out of the slums. But rest assure, we learn plenty about you on the way. If we can be that open and accepting to the act that you are going to be here and anywhere for a long time, then why can't any of you being as accepting to a new culture?
This way, rather than believing the narrow-minded views of any other idiot on the news (and also breaking the boundaries of our existence as people in one nation under a God), you can learn what is the truth about black people, as well as everyone in the world. We are well aware how some people are dragging our race down. Rap and hip-hop stereotypes are no more than a drag down, and everything that has gone wrong with us is only bad education, and bad parenting. And once you move here, you will find that black people, like you and any other race on the planet, are as different as you and me. Some are pretty wise, and some are just plain idiotic (skinheaded trolls of yesterday, I'm looking at you).
To help give you a heads up, we aren't all what you see on TV, especially BET. Do all black people like rap, hip-hop and R&B? No. Only most, but not all. Do all "minorities" go around screwing women and getting them pregnant? No. Do all "minorities" sell crack or illegal things? No. Do all of them own firearms? If they do, it's probably to get rid of the guy who robs us in either our houses or the ATM machine.
So, if you come here and move to a black neighborhood, it isn't a revenge situation. Not mostly, anyway. This way, you will get the education that you can't ever get from the news. This way, anything you say all over the net, this time will be politically correct, and you will have no reason to think that we are only the bane of your existence.
If you don't, and you still feel the need to talk crap about the majority of "minorities", you are only showing how ignorant you truly are to us, when it comes to the people living outside of your house and your neighborhood. After all, the only way you are going to get rid of all the black people in your sight is by committing suicide. (And I doubt even THAT will work.)
So, how about it? What are your feelings about moving to a black neighborhood?
