• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

Modern day systemic racism, does it exist?

    First they said the rich get away with crime but now they say the poor commit most of the crime.

    Not everybody in the hood is a part of that street culture I was talking about.

    They are a part of a different culture though. They don't call police like most people do. They have a no snitch policy they live by.

    People who are not a part of that culture ignore that no snitch policy. Why do you think so many people in the hood call the police when they see crime happening?

    Oh, it’s better here. Though, as we are discussing, some folk don’t think that it is near “good enough” yet.

    We can know when that is “good enough” when the complaints about how it is unfair ease up.

    I still can't get over the fact that I as a white man am a victim of Asian privilege and systemic racism.

    Not all the complaints have merit. Look at me. The Asians have privilege i don't have, and I'm a victim of systemic racism, but I'm not complaining.

    So the people under you should take it as well as you do?

    Maybe no one is taking it. There could be reasons for these stats that we don't see. But even if its true that discrimination is the cause, at least you can't blame it on the white man or the system. The white man is a victim too. And the system isn't to blame. Maybe the system could use improvement but its not the direct reason. Judges, not the system, discriminate in sentencing.

    I see.
    Whatever causes these disparities in the “Justice” that is meted out, we can first reject the notion that “the problem” stems from racism.
    Charming.

    Ummm.... we don't want those brown people picking our vegetables. We want them all to be shipped back home. Then come here legally with a green card and/or apy for citizenship. Then they can come here and do whatever. Pick vegetables, become an accountant, be a CEO. Doesn't really matter. Just be here legally.

    They shouldn't be here in legally picking our vegetables. That goes for anyone, including Canadians.

    We are in FULL agreement on the administration issues. No administration has gone after businesses who hire illegals. Congress has done NOTHING as well.

    No the illegals should not be given legal status.

    They CHOSE to come here illegally. They were nothing like the slaves who were seized by their own people and sold to others, forced to come here.

    It's because they are not pursuing the jobs that pay more. It's a simple as that. When you look at the pay they get for equal jobs they get paid the same amount of money. When you account for even skills and even education they earn the same for the same job. A white teacher in an inner city school earns the same as a black teacher. A black teacher in a better public school system earns the same as a white teacher.

    Blacks are not being kept out of the education. They can go to college like everyone else. The truth is, even when they do, they by and large choose careers that pay less. Even in the engineering sectors. They choose the engineering degrees that pay less than others.

    It's not that difficult to understand. IT IS NOT STYSTEMIC.
