this is a white man's world. My thought for today is that no matter how many revolutions we have in history,African Americans will ALWAYS be seen as inferior. African American history is touched on very inconsequential in society today. In classerooms all over, you might hear about Martin Luther King and Harriet Tubman. The established roots of the past will never get touched upon, therefore the thought that African American are inferior will always reign to be true in some eyes. I remember a song called '' All Falls Down" by Kayne West and he made a statement during the song that stuck with me for a long time. He said "even if you are driving a Benz, your still a nigga in a coup". Basically agreeing with my thought I had tonight. Even if you're driving a stereotypical "white mans" vehicle , you will still be seen as African American.

Racism in college Racism is forever going to be a touchy subject. Socially, grade school and even higher education. We like to believe that the older we get the more mature we get, the wiser we get. Sorry to say, but this is highly untruthful. Colleges are filled with students of all different races and ethnic backgrounds. Students try to force themselves and others to believe that they are "so over" the black vs. white thing. They are not. If anything, those of minority races are confronted more with racism. This was seen especially during the running of President Obama. It is tragic that in order to learn about African American history, for example, a student must take and African American course. In all othe history courses, you learn very little of African American history that you haven't already learned in grade school. It is sadder that when a white man or woman is the teacher of the course, students either snicker or whine that he can't possibly know nor relate to the history. Its a neverending cycle of racism. Knowledge is knowledge. Truth is truth. The ending of the cycle of racism in college requires a majority.I'm not so sure students are ready to step up to that plate.

Black Advancement I first want to say that I was drawn to this discussion because, as an African- American woman I understand that the advancements of blacks are around us every day. We are definitely taking one step at a time to become, basically, on the same level as our white counterparts.
I further felt the need to "type" on how I feel about attending, what is known as, a predominantly white university and seeing so many African-Americans in almost every class I attend and observing their high involvement on campus. It, to me, is a very wonderful and comforting feeling to see so many on UL's campus and taking this to their advantage.
