    I do see a difference between race based events and heritage based events. To assume that a heritage based event is only"white" ignores migration in the world and the various races that live in most countries. I think if you want to have an Ethiopian or Angolan heritage event or another heritage event from a country that was predominantly historically black, there would be less push back that a "black" event that seems to put off other races from attending. You could even have an African event that would not create a racial divide. Segregation along racial lines simply is not helping race relations in this country whether it is in housing or in social events. In addition, some of the anti-white comments here reflect an opinion that all whites in the USA were responsible for slavery. These comments seem to forget that a great war was fought over the issue and tens of thousands of white and black soldiers lost their lives in the civil war to defeat slavery including ancestors in a number of Chicago families. Visit Gettysburg or one of the other civil war battlefields sometime to see how many lost their lives or were maimed in the fight against slavery.

    I need to keep BC, the effective community organizer, in mind at the next strategy session for my fellow arrogant whites and all the Hispanic people with wealth as we plot the next move in our insidious plan. I just hope we can keep it a secret long enough to bamboozle the lower and moderate income Black Americans ( excluding Melody Hobson, of course). Really.
    If you are as effective as you say, why are you so frustrated? Name calling like a little kid. Who does that.
