As opposed to in the past where it exclusively meant giving jobs, housing, and education to unqualified whites at the expense of the qualified non-white.
Perhaps you've seen the news lately where unarmed (and often cooperating) black folks have been killed by police *on video* in a markedly different way than their official report says, and the officers have more often than not been cleared of any criminal prosecution.
Maybe making notable changes to a society that allows that to happen regularly could be a first step toward black folks "getting over it"?
Jewish = religious tradition and linguistic, cultural, and historical heritage
Polish = linguistic, cultural, and historical heritage
Native American = too vague without tribe
Now let's look at black folks in general in the US. Religion? Tossed aside and forced to convert to Christianity. Some small vestiges eake by in voodoo. Language before slavery? Tossed aside and forcibly forgotten while simultaneously forbidding English education and literacy. Cultural memory before slavery? Eradicated. History before slavery. Erased.
We say "African American" because you have a huge swath of people that have no idea what country their ancestors came from, no idea what tribe, no idea the heritage, no idea the lineage, no idea the cultural connections...
Imagine forcing people to forget their families were Irish or Polish or Russian or French. Imagine no idea they came from Christian or Jewish communities. And all records from the time destroyed so that you have no hope of ever finding out. Ever. Your ancestral history? Gone. Poof.
No tell me again how you don't see any difference.
So you're saying your family, upbringing, and sense of personal and cultural history while in China had absolutely nothing to do with your later success? Good to know.
You refer to "merit" as though it can be objectively measured. If you look closely, you'll find non-trivial biases in that so-called meritocracy. And those biases curiously always seem to favor the ones that are already on top. Funny that.
It is late when it's the only form of outreach. Unfortunately other forms of support like subsidized school lunches, Head Start, after school programs, enforcement of equal housing and employment laws, etc. were all on the GOP budget chopping block. I'd be thrilled if that education pipeline were fixed up. Instead we're debating the merits of slashing yet another rung in the ladder.
Like when peaceful white protesters have had dogs and fire hoses set on them by all black police departments? When white families were denied access to housing in black neighborhoods? When job applicants were looked over simply because they had a white sounding name? When white kids were more likely to be suspended or expelled from school for the same offenses as black kids? When black felons were more likely to get a job offer than a white person with a clean record? How about when whites were directed toward subprime mortgages while black counterparts at the same credit rating were given better interest rates? When whites were given the death penalty at higher rates than blacks for the same offense? When white jail time in general was longer than blacks for the same offense? When unarmed, non-resisting whites are much more likely to be killed by police than blacks? You mean when whites are referred to as "thugs" in the media when black folks aren't?
You must mean that "reverse racism" since that has been the racism that black folks have been living through, but in reverse.
p.s. I don't want to here any of this Perl is ugly crap either
How can we trust you with Perl when we can't even trust you with English?

Some features I'd like would be the ability to easily scan the disks (pop in disc, software reads disc, software prompts for a name (with something sensible defaulted), software ejects disc, softare tells me what if any label to write/apply to the disc, and software is ready for the next disc).
I've seen one or two packages out there but they usually require lots of manual disk labelling, or their search capabilities are limited. Windows-only software won't be of much use to me.
What are others using to manage their media collections?
