If you listen to just Democrats, the mainstream media and black activists, you would think that most of the problems black Americans have are at the hands of white Americans, but you would be very wrong. In fact, there are many cases where blacks are just as racially discriminatory against other ethnic groups as they claim others discriminate against them. However, all we hear is one side of a very small story.

(Constitution.com) – A Columbia philosophy major recently wrote a fantastic piece exposing the hypocrisy of the “high price” of black “grievances” that is well worth the read. It is exactly the sort of stuff that enrages leftists, but even more so because the author, Coleman Hughes, is himself a black man.
