“I don’t know a single black entrepreneur": How Does the Internet Work then...

Michael Arrington never met this guy.
Unlike movies that feature prominent Black scientists and computer programmers, Silicon Valley has about as many Black people working there as National Parks have Black visitors.

As we wrote here back in February:
That we have reached a world blessed with the technology we have today despite Black participation in the creation of these technologies is a miracle. Silicon Valley's lack of Black people is an obvious indicator of culturally biased education system that will always be Waiting for Superman. Without Black people how can we expect to have innovation in Silicon Valley?

All of the great inventions - including the Super Soaker - are courtesy of Black people. Right? That's what movies have taught an unsuspecting American population through an ingenious form of behavioral modification
That Apple, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, Facebook, and hundreds of other companies exist, with almost no Black footprint on any of these organizations, is an aberration. Right?

Perhaps that has something to do with those low math and science test scores Black people consistently produce (because numbers and the Periodic Table are culturally-biased).You can't force people to be entrepreneurs; it takes a certain type of individual who is willing to put in the work, the hard work, necessary to get a company off the ground. Worse, the number of Black people in math and science is dropping, which means this trend is only going to get worse:

With black unemployment reaching historic levels, banks laying off tens of thousands and law school graduates waiting tables, why aren't more African-Americans looking toward science, technology, engineering and math — the still-hiring careers known as STEM?

The answer turns out to be a complex equation of self-doubt, stereotypes, discouragement and economics — and sometimes just wrong perceptions of what math and science are all about.

The percentage of African-Americans earning STEM degrees has fallen during the last decade. It may seem far-fetched for an undereducated black population to aspire to become chemists or computer scientists, but the door is wide open, colleges say, and the shortfall has created opportunities for those who choose this path.

STEM barriers are not unique to black people. The United States does not produce as high a proportion of white engineers, scientists and mathematicians as it used to. Women and Latinos also lag behind white men.
Yet the situation is most acute for African-Americans.

Black people are 12 percent of the U.S. population and 11 percent of all students beyond high school. In 2009, they received just 7 percent of all STEM bachelor's degrees, 4 percent of master's degrees, and 2 percent of PhDs, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
In Silicon Valley, the only Black people to be found are on the Stanford University basketball and football teams. Pointing this out is not good for ones career:
A new documentary shines a light on Silicon Valley, the place where Microsoft founder Bill Gates and former Apple CEO and founder Steve Jobs got their start, but not for it’s historic record of producing the next great breakthroughs in technology, but instead for its apparent lack of diversity.

In the CNN documentary series, “Black in America,” eight Black entrepreneurs in the NewMe Accelerator program share their struggles to launch start-up businesses in a place where minority representation is virtually nonexistent. In an interview that ignited a firestorm on Twitter this week, Mike Arrington, an industry leader and founder of TechCrunch, revealed an even harsher reality: “This is a white and Asian world up here — it just is,” he said. Arrington, who also commented that he doesn’t know of a single Black entrepreneur in the Valley, was harshly criticized for his apparent acceptance of the racial disparity.
It's funny when you think about it: white and Asian entrepreneurs create goods, services and new companies and technology that benefit all mankind. Black entrepreneurs, outside of creating crack and dealing drugs, primarily create businesses that cater directly to the Black community (think BET founder Robert Johnson).

Michael Arrington is a huge Disingenuous White Liberal, who more than likely went to see Waiting for Superman on it opening night. That he stated he hasn't met a single Black entrepreneur means he hasn't spent any time in Oakland among the Black drug dealers:

Michael Arrington was sandbagged by CNN. Arrington, founder and former editor of TechCrunch, and now running his own venture capital fund aptly dubbed CrunchFund, has been accused of being racist — a  completely ridiculous accusation.
Arrington sat down with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien back in July, for a documentary scheduled to air in November. According to the email sent by CNN to Arrington, which has been posted on his blog, Arrington was asked to participate in a documentary about the “Silicon Valley accelerator phenomenon and start-up culture.”
The email went on to say, “This particular documentary will be told through the experience of a group of digital entrepreneurs who travel to Silicon Valley to chase their dreams.” The email from CNN also called Arrington “GOD” of Silicon Valley, and TechCrunch “the Bible.” The email never stated that the real topic of the interview was the lack of minorities in Silicon Valley.
The documentary was previewed a few days ago, and CNN placed a clip from it on the front page of its website, featuring Arrington. In the clip, O’Brien asks him if he could name his favorite black entrepreneur, Arrington replied,  “I don’t know a single black entrepreneur.” This is the quote that started the whole argument. 
I’m going to keep this short. If you have ever met, or spoken to Mike Arrington, you would find that he is as far from racist as you can get. Arrington, like most civilized people, doesn't think in black and white.
“See, my brain database doesn’t categorize people in terms of skin color. Or hair color. Or sexual orientation,” Arrington said. “When I queried that database, under stressful circumstances, I got zero results.
Most civilized people do think in Black and white. This is why DWLs send their children to private schools and spend vast sums of money to insulate them from the Black Undertow. The Washington Post can gloat about the end of White enclaves, but the main point to take from quick demise of all-white neighborhoods is that Pat Buchanan is right (Vdare should have a big article by me up tomorrow on the correlation between neighborhoods that aren't safe for Trick or Treating and the Death of White America).

No Black entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley? How in the world is the Internet even working then?

Video of Michael Arrington on Black entrepreneurs can be found here. Read Arrington's "Oh Shit, I'm a Racist" post here, his pathetic response to the whole "no Black entrepreneurs" controversy.

nope.

See above.

Silicon valley has plenty of non-whites, insulating them from any charge of racism blacks would care to level.

I went to the University of Illinois. The UofI has posted some spreadsheets listing racial breakdowns by majors.

http://www.dmi.illinois.edu/stuenr/

Look for "Enrollment by Curriculum, Race, Sex, Residency"

1990: African Americans were about 7.6% of CS majors
2003(my freshman year): African Americans were about 2.7% of CS majors
2011: African Americans are about 1.2% of CS majors(if you include multiracial blacks and black Hispanics it is 1.7%). Only 10(or 14) African Americans out of 841 are CS majors.

I rarely see any black programmers or software engineers and the ones I do see are often not African American.

The dearth of intelligence within the negro ethnosphere is a universally observable phenomenon. It's observation also transcends time.

Margaret Sanger acknowledged it back in 1938 when she referenced 'Popenoe & Williams p. 220' in writing, ". . . 70% of the Negroes were found to have a mental age of 11 years or less."

http://www.nyu.edu/projects/sanger/webedition/app/documents/show.php?sangerDoc=220126.xml

In refusing to acknowledge the Emperor is butt naked, multiculturalists do a grave disservice to society. They also do great damage to black students. Black teens, in particular, are frustrated by their inability to keep pace with their White "peers".

Leftists excuse these left-behind black students as victims of peer pressure. Academic excellence, they say, is considered 'queer' by young blacks. That, of course, is a cop out; a fig-leaf sized cover up to disguise the bare truth: Most blacks simply lack the intelligence to keep up with Whites and Asians.

And about Asians.

Next time to you take flight to China, consider the airliner in which you travel is the direct descendent of the white Wright brothers invention. The plane's engine and engineering are also the stuff of white innovation.

Peek out the window as your plane descends for landing. Observe the bright lights that illuminate Peking. Think Thomas Edison, the white inventor. The automobile that carries you through Peking streets exists thanks to European innovation. Their mass production was initially launched by Henry Ford, a white innovator. The road system, traffic lights, computers, steel construction, etc. are imports of Western invention. The list seems endless.

East Asians are a brilliant people. They are not, however, innovators. They have the capacity to latch on to Western inventions and improve them. But they seldom spark an original idea.

While blacks lack intelligence and Asians lack innovation, White people also have their fault. Our altruistic sense of fair play and benevolence makes us gullible. That that trait will be our destruction.

Another well written and meaningful piece. Thank you again for all your hard work. Too bad about Tebow today. Considering the Broncos have one of the worst offensive lines, no running game, and the owners just traded away their MOST successful wide receiver for nothing, I am beginning to think there may actually be a conspiracy to make Tebow fail. I thought Elway wanted him to win? Maybe Elway is more jealous about his "legacy" than I thought...................

Racial egalitarianism is poppycock. No matter how orthodox your stated opinions, you simply cannot win with these lunatics.

Castrated White people subscribe to the "anti-racist" nonsense out of fear of conflict, but the troglodytes will always find issue with something, anything they say or do.

And Paul, pimps are entrepreneurs too. You're hurting their feelings.

I only wonder how the chosen one will handle it. In South Africa, where the chosen one plaid a big role, now every company must be 50% black. I saw a documentary about diamond divers. They were 4 blond guys diving for diamonds. Living together when the didn't went to their wifes, eating together, watching TV together.

But on the ship, there were 4 blacks including the cook, who wasn't able to cook. Funny story: He was poor but had 18 kids from two women.

And the chosen ones? Their synagogue lies in ruins.

From what I've read around the web on this issue; you'd think the whole story was Arrington's "racism" and nothing but. In BRA, making up racists to scream about is far better than pointing out the fact that A. Arrington is a successful businessman who's just being honest and B. That technology is a cutthroat industry that requires constant work just to keep ahead of the competition, so racial bias takes a backseat to actual ability when it comes to picking winners and losers-Unlike more established and longstanding industries where BRA has strangled with polices to enrich and aid black people regardless of the consequences.
I'm not surprised though, after all in BRA finding a scapegoat to scream "racism" about is and always will be far more important than the reality that hollywood has done it's darnedest to cover up.

But interestingly in Arrington's response, he does says this: "we talked about why there are so few non Asian minorities getting funded in Silicon Valley".

Using an HBD expression like that is probably a sign that he knows more than he is letting on here

The sole reason for virtually no black footprint in technology is simple:RACISM (TM). Pure and simple: RACISM (TM).

It's just more another example of the privileged whites keeping the less fortunate blacks from succeeding in life.

Of course, I'm being facetious, but we all know that's what the race hustlers will claim, it is, after all, the standard default position anytime these facts are presented.

Hey, it looks like our buddy Herman Cain has been "accused" of making sexual advances........NO!!! That's hard to believe isn't it?

The problem, I feel, is a matter of ATTITUDE. In order to be an entrepreneur, you have to have a vision for yourself. You have to look into the future and be willing to put off self gratification for a bit. If a Black man wants to be an entrepreneur, he can. He just has to think things in the long haul perspective. These drug dealers are in it because it's easy money and a short term gain. The Black people who are entrepreneurs(in legitimate professions, not drug dealing) are in it because they thought in terms of the long haul, not short term.

As for Black people in Silicon Valley, there are about 42,000 Black residents in Santa Clara County,CA, out of over 1,780,000 people. A very small population, but some there nonetheless. And as it is, more African-Americans are leaving California than moving there. There has been a net decrease in California's African-American population. This also holds true for Silicon Valley. In fact, most places in the Bay Area are losing its African-American population, and this includes Oakland. Alot of African-Americans are leaving California for places like Texas, Georgia, the surrounding western states. Most Blacks who are entrepreneurs have most likely moved to the Atlanta area.

The Superman film with the black computer programmer was the one where the guy found that the IRS was taxing people which ended in a half cent being owed and these were totalled and paid to the IRS. The employees half cents were sent to an internal account where an employee directed it to his own which was based on a true life story.
In the film a guy says that this guy is so ingenius he would be able to melt in in such a way that nobody would notice him.

Cue Richard Prior turning up for work in a Ferrari.

That part worked in that film because it was written for a guy who could play it.

Constantly giving scientist roles these days?

Lazy lazy writing.

So Michael Arrington's a racist because he doesn't know a single black entrepreneur? How in the world does that work? Okay, fine. I'll be "Michael-Arrington-style-racist," too: I don't know a single black astronaut. I don't know a single black lion tamer. I don't know a single black anthropologist. I don't know a single black French pastry chef. (Hey, this is kinda fun.) I don't know a single black mattress manufacturer. I don't know a single black member of the British Royal family...

Very true. For evidence, study the Asian Nobel Laureates ... the sum of their achievements are based on previous scientific breakthroughs.

Caucasians have a creative intelligence, Asians have an adaptive intelligence. Negros, on the other hand ... well, I suppose it's obvious.

In other words, act white. evergreen, you are very optimistic! Foresight, or future time orientation, is not a biological negro trait. Blacks are unable to plan for the future, that is why they can not hold communities together, and why they are so poverty-stricken.

If they are able to "think things in the long haul perspective", whatever that means, he must mimic whites. He must be patient, work hard, endure, plan, do without, press on. Blacks tend to choose the get rich quick schemes, and do not understand the process for becoming successful, because they want the goods right now.

Blacks can only mimic white behaviors temporarily, because they will always regress, exhibiting the biological negro traits that come naturally to them.

"

Very funny. With my own personal experience, I have only met one drug dealer, and he was White. He was selling marijuana. As for Black chemists, I met a woman who worked for Kodak as a chemist. Her daughter goes to college with me. Haven't met any crack dealers. Then again, I've never lived in the inner city.

"I rarely see any black programmers or software engineers and the ones I do see are often not African American."

Well, if this is the case, it is a matter of attitude and culture. Here are the questions I have.

1)Why are alot of the Black computer programmers not American?

2)Why are fewer African-Americans pursuing Computer Science since 1980?

From what I see, there are Blacks going into Computer Science. Thing is, fewer American Blacks are going into it and more foreign Blacks are getting into it.

I disagree with you. It is not a matter of "can't do it". It is a matter of choosing not to think in the perspective of the long term. It is a matter of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. Yes, people go through hard times, but how you handle it is your choice. My father got laid off and was jobless for a year. He didn't sell drugs. He drew unemployment for 6 months and lived off of the savings he had. He thought in long term perspective. He doesn't do "get rich quick".

Here is something else: What about White people who make and sell meth? Aren't they engaging in short term gains?

People are responsible for their choices. If you make irresponsible choices, biology is not to blame, you're thinking is.

As an engineering major from one of the elite private institutions that LOVES to do affirmative action, I must say that one thing affirmative action cannot fix is blacks' desires to avoid sciences and choose majors that pretty much put them on the law school, phd, or big time bust route. The overwhelmingly overwhelming (that goddamn overwhelming) blacks in sciences are African international students who do not hang out with American blacks EVER.
Hence, we have American blacks who are not cut out for heavy technology-based entrepreneurial and start-up scene in Silicon Vally, Research Triangle of North Carolina, Telecom Corridor of Texas, and Boston.

Californian said...

The United States does not produce as high a proportion of white engineers, scientists and mathematicians as it used to. Women and Latinos also lag behind white men. Yet the situation is most acute for African-Americans.

i.e., white men produce most of what we term "modern society." The fact that this might be the result of organic factors and not culturally created is unspoken as it is politically unacceptable.

But this brings up a point. With the government pouring so much money and resources into ethnic and women's studies programs, and discriminating against white men, is this shutting out the American lead in STEM? I take it that American national priorities are to support politically favored minorities/women over the people who actually create the innovations.

Perhaps this is a reason for other countries racing ahead of America in STEM? And perhaps it is also the reason for quite a few other national pathologies: the decline of infrastructure; or the skyrocketing national debt; or the collapse of the manned space program; or the fact that after a decade of fighting, the US is still fighting a war on terror with no end in sight; or any problem which requires no small amount of thinking to be solved?

Which brings me to this conclusion, that this is not a genetic thing. This is about mentality. If African students from abroad can do well in the computer sciences, then American Blacks have that same potential. The question is "Why aren't American Blacks pursuing the Computer Sciences as much as other ethnicities are?"

I have met a few American Blacks who are involved in one kind of computer science or another. One of them is a GIS major. It seems like both persons expect to be the token Black person. Actually, the Black persons I have met who are into things like computer science, technology, and engineering seem to go into with the idea of being the only Black person and not letting that stop them.

I hate to use case examples, but speaking of private schools I took a second job over the summer and happened to work alongside a man who taught private school and did other work over the summer also.

Well his story was typical, got his degree, paid them back by working in Baltimore City proper for two years, got the hell out and worked public school in Baltimore County for a few years. He said it was "less" dangerous, but if you get placed in an ever encroaching undertow area it's the same TNB.

Well this guy had enough and decided to take a pay cut to work private school and has never been happier. There's no real enforced curriculum, the students are well behaved, and the teachers are actually treated like adults who have the children's best interests in mind (unlike in public schools where the administration treats teachers like children who are idiots and just in it for money, and look what they're getting).

So eventually we got to talking about how he liked it and public vs private that sort of thing and (wink wink in a "hey we're at work" code speak) about blacks and how they're disruptive failures and even if a black kid made it to his school you could assume they were better than average and without a diversity program they'd be taken on merit like it should be anyways.

And so I said to him: "People don't send their kids to private school because the education is necessarily better, although being private it is, but people send their kids to private school to keep their kids away from other people's kids."

And he said: "that's exactly right."

I hope to work with that guy again next summer.

Has anybody been watching 'Around the World in 80 Ways' on History Channel?
Was watching it last night and couldn't help but laugh my ass off, while shaking my head.
OK, the two guys (The shows protagonists ... Two white guys who are supposed to circumvent the globe using 80 unique/different modes of transportation)are in the middle of 'No-fucking-where' Africa. Tanzania, I think it was.
Anyway, So they're on some sort of truck (Which the local negros just piled on thinking 'WOO-HOO! FREE RIDE!!') which they later get stopped by some corrupt negro 'police dept' and had to disband the truck. So, what do they find next?
Wooden scooters. Scooters as 'pushing with your foot' type of scooter. All wood, wooden wheels and looking like they weighed about 100 lbs.
So WTF! This is THE BEST these negros can come up with? WOODEN SCOOTERS? That's the extent to their 'Technology'?
We've (As in White people) have put men on the freekin' moon, and the best the negros can come up with is a heavy, bulky, wooden scooter. And it's any wonder that negros are not much good for anything other than pushing a mop or running with a football. If that.

Speaking of History Channel (My favorite) ... Did anyone notice that 'Jake the Whiny Negro' on 'Top Shot' (The Navy Seal guy, that he/they reminded you as such every 5 minutes)*quit* because he felt that he was being 'dissed'? (In other words, his ass wasn't being kissed because he was a Seal/negro, take your pick)

Thank God, I made my bed 12 years ago, by moving to a place that is only .4% negro (Yes, that's POINT 4%) and 3% Hispanic... Because I sleep very well.

If that were really the case, then you would also have to believe that Blacks cannot be held responsible for their behavior because they are of "low intelligence and IQ". You would also have to say that Blacks shouldn't be punished anyway because they can't help themselves because they "not intelligent". It doesn't sound logical to me. What a person brings up low IQ, what it seems like is that a person is trying to say all behavior is genetic and people can't take any responsibility because it's all innate. Doesn't sound logical. If a person does something stupid, like murdering someone, that is a show of making bad personal choices that hurt others. That's not genetic, that is a personal problem.

I come from a small Appalachian town pop: approx. 2,000.

From my small town, I knew of two black CS majors that graduated from Va Tech and one Harvard Law grad and one electrical engineer.

That's pretty good considering my towns black population was about 2-3% of the total population. These folks had the advantage of good home lives and a good majority white community in which to grow up in.

They are examples that some blacks can achieve, if they'll just set their minds to it.

few stories about blacks in academia that ive encountered.
The first was an incredibly racist south african black i knew in high school. Now heres the interesting thing about him. His family was well off and they were all sent to private schools. His family was more well off than mine and im white.
He even spoke with an upper class english accent. Guy was a complete racist asshole as is typical of blacks. Hated me because I was white called me ugly constantly because of my "fair skin" (I assume he never looked in a mirror).
One day during Football (Australian Rugby) I tackled the dickhead to the ground hard. He was furious with impotent rage. It was hilarious. He was outraged that a white guy could physically dominate him so much. So from then on he had it in for me but was always too scared to act on what i knew was his desire to assault or stab me.

Years later after highschool i learned that despite coming from a well off rich black family and getting a good education he turned himself into a type of gangsta wannabe , sold drugs and had stabbed one of his hommies and sent him to jail.
Ruined his life.
How can it be said that blacks problems aren't racial when even a wealthy rich black with an upper class accent will revert to criminality.

My second story was a black exchange student at univesity in a lab. The dumbass was listening to music on his ipod and unaware that he had set his chem apparatus was on fire. I waved wildly at him to look out.
His response was to sneer and glare at me with the "what chew u lookan at whitey" classic response.
I had the same mindless response whenever I tried to interact with blacks on campus.

Whenever I hear someone say "I don't see color", unless they're legally blind, I know that they are a liar and most likely an anti-white racist.
He's speaking the truth, in a way. He's got lots of dark-skinned colleagues! Why, there's Amit, Sandeep, Asok . . .

"Which means that he stores and categorizes people on their skin color like the racist that he is."

Or maybe like lots of people who are not racist, he subconsciously notices attributes that he does not consciously give a shit about.

"Very true. For evidence, study the Asian Nobel Laureates ... the sum of their achievements are based on previous scientific breakthroughs."

Yeah right. How many of you have white LED flashlights, blu-ray laser disk players, use statin drugs and use cell phones with organic led displays? And let's not forget the single electron-gun CRT color picture tubes you used to watch. Or the Yagi antennas your outdoor log-periodic TV is based on.

Here is one thing I find disturbing. We have had several decades of government programs supporting minority business formation. This includes all sort of grants and set asides and you know the rest of the drill. Yet the outcome is just about no different than if there were none of these programs in the first place.

Why is this?

One also wonders if in the days of segregation, did blacks have a higher rate of business formation? Is the welfare state at least in part responsible for killing entrepreneurship?

Someone ought to be asking these questions, but I suspect that the answers would not fit the current multicult party line.

The "GAP" controversy still continues.

"OPRF board clashes over test score gap

OPRF High School board members had a heated exchange Thursday night over the continued gap between white and black students’ test scores.

Oak Park-River Forest High School did not meet federal AYP, Adequate Yearly Progress under No Child Left Behind.

The overall composite AYP score was 72.8 percent who met or exceeded standards in reading and 68.8 percent for math. With the AYP minimum standard rising to 95 percent in 2012 and 100 percent in 2013, it’s unlikely any subgroup, including whites, will meet AYP in future testing.

However, School District 200 board members expressed concern over the gaps between white and black students.

Of the white students who took the Prairie State Achievement Examination, 87.4 percent met or exceeded standards in both reading and mathematics. The next highest percentage was Hispanic students, at 70 percent and 61 percent respectively. Blacks met or exceeded standards only 39.7 percent in reading and 40.7 percent in math.

Sharon Patchek-Layman said she “was astonished” that after eight years of AYP, there had been little or no change in the disparity between black and white test scores at OPRF.

“We started at 40 percent eight years ago,” she said.

Amy Hill, director of assessment and research who presented the report, termed the test results both familiar and “unsettling.”

I understand arguing with Evergreen, but his "arguments" and everyone's counter arguments are taking up space.

Evergreen is your typical young black man (I'm guessing early 20s) who's parents escaped their own black undertow and who now reside in a mostly white, productive neighborhood and who sent their son, Mr. Evergreen, off to college (which from an earlier post I remember Mr. Evergreen mention he attends)

If all that is true then your situation, Mr. Evergreen, is atypical (though certainly not unique) among American blacks.

Both you and your parents may indeed be far above the black average (and if you're a whole standard deviation above, i.e. better than 85%) the black norm then you may even be in the range of the average white IQ. It's not surprising that you could escape nor why given the chance your family would choose to flee your brethren.

Given that why blame us for doing the same? Why attack us for wanting to send our kids off to schools with other children who want to learn and be free of violence? Why insult us because we'd like to leave our doors unlocked while at home in the day and allow our kids to walk or ride their bikes around the neighborhood or local park?

We already know you're atypical, probably in the top 5% of blacks and that you attend college and that your living situation is far nicer/safer/cleaner than that of the average black in America. Good for you.

Therefore 1.) you can't argue against averages (I once knew a guy who XYZ doesn't count) and 2.) if you were to immerse yourself for an extended time (or just a day trip) to the black undertow you'll see why we want nothing to do with it and we don't want it to encroach upon our current neighborhoods.

You are the negro that DWLs LOVE to point to and say: "see, black people are just as smart as us." You also may be one of the few that Whites initially tollerate moving into White neighborhoods. The problem is when you bring the rest of the undertow over with you and property values start to drop which initiates a downward spiral of more undertow and more devaluation, thus enabling more undertow.

Someday soon we will have affirmative action pilots at major airlines forced upon us. Does anyone know if this is going on already? Maybe it is happening now at smaller airlines or at usps, fedex, ups, etc.?

So we are "astonished." And "unsettled." You mean ... one more experiment in education has failed? Could the results have something to do with ... IQ?

Might it be the relative ranking of tests scores -- whites above hispanics above blacks -- also correlate to relative IQ scores?

Oh wait, I forget, we can not talk about IQ. We need to spend more money on education. And fight racism. And spend more money. And create another education bureaucracy. And spend more money. And...

Zzzzz....

As for Black people in Silicon Valley, there are about 42,000 Black residents in Santa Clara County,CA, out of over 1,780,000 people. A very small population, but some there nonetheless.

--Sounds like a White paradise. Moving family there forthwith. With less than 5% blacks the city must function like a Swiss city or a pre-Snivel Rights era USA city!!!! Can you imagine the low crime rates and almost non-existent rape rates of the 1950's?

I'm sure the Black "rights" groups are pleading with Obama to import some rapists, drug dealers, and felons because White people don't deserve to live in safe, clean, functioning towns and cities ever since Martin Loofer daKing ruined the country. Dat be a Cibil Rites violashun, ya'll!

mr_evergreen: Wow, insults. Not surprising.

When you persistently insult the intelligence of others in such an abject fashion, please do not act so surprised.

Your arguments continue to place dead last in the realm of forensic debate. Feel free to thank me later.

Yes, black people were dragged here in chains and forced into servitude. The "evil white man" bought those black people... from... wait for it... other black people! Those ancestral progenitors of the modern black man would have been slaves anyway, surprisingly enough.

This reverse racism crap is really starting to make me sick. Stop waving the fucking race card whenever you feel like you're not out in front of the rest of us rats in this race. You can't coast on your great-great-great-grandpappy's enforced lack of achievement forever.

Fact: Most of the slaves and abused workers (indentured servants) in American history have been.....big crazy award show drum roll......fucking white.

This guy is the ancestor of indentured servants and though he did not make it to Yale he did get to Harvard.
