… unless we’re the ones doing it.

7) Cultural Segregation

Perhaps the most objective metric supporting the claim that blacks prolifically purvey racism is the astounding number of organizations which openly segregate. There are names we have all come to know, from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to Black Entertainment Television. And there are many others which are lesser known. Consider this list from one of many similar ones available on the web:

  • American Association of Blacks in Energy
  • The Association of Black Psychologists
  • The Executive Leadership Council
  • Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
  • National Association of Black Accountants
  • National Association of Black Hotel Owners, Operators, and Developers
  • National Association of Black Journalists
  • National Black Business Council
  • National Black Chamber of Commerce
  • National Black MBA Association
  • National Black Nurses Association
  • National Council of Negro Women
  • National Coalition of 100 Black Women
  • National Medical Association
  • National Newspaper Publishers Association
  • National Urban League
  • National Society of Black Engineers
  • Organization of Black Designers
  • United Negro College Fund
  • 100 Black Men of America

Surely, blacks are not the only demographic group which chooses to associate together, and there is certainly nothing wrong with free association. The problem is the double standard. Substitute white for black in any of the above and you would have theatrical public outcry and claims of civil rights violations.

Segregation of blacks by whites is widely regarded as one of the banes of the civil rights movement. Yet segregation is widely tolerated when blacks choose to engage in it. Such an obvious double standard fuels racial animosity rather than soothing it. If the goal of the civil rights movement was and remains equality and inclusion, how does such prolific segregation advance that?
