Coons.Toms,Thomasinas,turncoats,sellouts and oreos! What’s your Motivation?


As i sit here typing this blog post i think back to all my years coming in contact with these types of “Black People” and i still don’t know what is going on in their pea brains.They range from poor to wealthy and they all have the same core reason for doing or feeling the way they do about caucasians. They think( i guess) in their minds that they will get rewarded for their service for their masters and will live the good life, have the respect of their peers and become a respectable person in society.Well…for the most part only 1/tenth of this ever happens and they are all guilty in their hearts about what they have done but try to lose themselves in the success and rewards they seem to think has been givin to them for being a “good-ninja”. They are in denial about the things they do and will make excuses for their behavior without understanding the whole picture but who am i to say anything about these people and the reasons they do what they do!They must have a reason for doing the things they do and so grand purpose driving them….I guess!?! It’s ok to not like the way your people act,it’s ok to not like the way your people have NOT helped themselves,it;s ok to not like the fact that your people have regressed as apposed to progressing in life as a whole race but before you condemn us just take a look at a few facts:

This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the academic achievement gap–built and continuously renovated by the 100-year-old standardized testing movement. It is a centennial that hardly anyone knows about.

These days, many people are criticizing the testing movement. Colleges are slowly diminishing the importance of standardized testing in admissions decisions. We are seeing unprecedented numbers of wealthy white parents opting their school children out of these tests.

But few testing critics are bursting its biggest bubble: the existence of the achievement gap itself. To believe in the existence of any sort of racial hierarchy is actually to believe in a racist idea. The achievement gap between the races–with Whites and Asians at the top and Blacks and Latinos at the bottom–is a racial hierarchy. And this popular racial hierarchy has been constructed by our religious faith in standardized testing.

Americans have been led to believe that intelligence is like body weight, and the different intellectual levels of different people can be measured on a single, standardized weight scale. Our faith in standardized tests causes us to believe that the racial gap in test scores means something is wrong with the Black test takers–and not the tests. And the belief that “inferior” Black minds are capable of doing as well as the “superior” White minds does not take away from the racist belief in the existence of the racial hierarchy itself.

By large margins, black adults are more likely than whites to say that blacks are treated less fairly than whites across key areas of American life. For example, 64% of black adults say blacks are treated less fairly than whites in the workplace, compared with 22% of whites who say the same – a 42-percentage-point gap. Blacks are also considerably more likely than whites – by margins of at least 20 points – to say that blacks are treated less fairly than whites in dealing with the police, in the courts, when applying for a loan or mortgage, in stores and restaurants and when voting in elections.

Blacks are also more likely than whites to say they have experienced unfair treatment because of their race or ethnicity in the past year. Some 47% of blacks say someone has acted as if they were suspicious of them and 45% say people have acted as if they thought they weren’t smart. About one-in-ten whites report having these types of experiences. Blacks are also more likely than whites to say they have been unfairly stopped by police (18% vs. 3%) and that they have been treated unfairly in hiring, pay or a job promotion (21% vs. 4%) in the last year.

Across several measures, black-white gaps in social and economic well-being persist. Blacks lag behind whites in homeownership, household wealth and median income, among other indicators. And these differences remain even when controlling for levels of education.

Long-standing racial differences in family structure also persist. Today, non-marital births are more than twice as common among black mothers as white mothers, and black children are nearly three times as likely as white children to be living with a single parent.
