Racist Programming: Black in America 2

First off, I'd like to make it very clear that the people who create this the type of programming that aired (and will air) on CNN Primetime on July 22 and 23, 2009, are the type of people who create what is commonly referred to as "racism." There are only two races of homo sapien sapien, and they are 1) the human race, and 2)the sociopathic race. I did cover that particular point in an earlier blog entry, but people tend to learn by repetition, so it probably doesn't hurt that I'm mentioning it again.
I'd like to remind people that black is a color or shade, not a variety of person, as some would have us believe. It is unwise to mention the word African-American either, since Africa is a continent -- not a country -- and very few people have dual-citizenship in an African country and in the United States. In such cases, one would be labelled, for example, a Burkina Fasoan-American, not African-American. Even if someone had triple citizenship, divided amongst two African nations and the United States, an intelligent person would call that person, for example, a Liberian-Ivory Coastman-American, as opposed to African American. (I would like to apologize for any ignorance I showed in any mixing of countries which do not mesh with dual or triple citizenship, or with each other. In my defense, I am not a world-political scientist.)
Furthermore, there are natural-born Africans who don't have dark skin tones, and I am not speaking specifically about those with albinism. Many South African citizens, for example, have fair skin tones.
Additionally, there are a great many non-African people of dark skin tones. Most people don't realize that there are several American aboriginals who have skin that is as dark as that of native African bushmen.
To continue my argument about the "racism" expressed by the makers of the programs entitled "Black in America," how are poverty conditions different for people of differring skin tones? Really. If a fair skinned family's home is demolished by a hurricane or a tornado, how is the experience worse for a darker-skinned family who had the same damage afflicted to their house? I believe anyone who sees the darker-skinned family as being treated more poorly (or less kindly) is probably seeing it that way because they want to see dark-skinned people as victims. That is so pathetic that the word "pathetic" should be typed ONLY after having incorporated the Caps Lock key.

Truthfully, those who exercise their social and political power are morally crippled.
