Could you please elaborate on the "painful part" thing? Mind, you, I'm Romanian and might not fully understand what's happening, but I am interacting with people from the States on a daily basis and have quite a few good friends there (Americans, that is). My conversations with them on the "blacks" subject prompted me to draw these conclusions (which might be correct or incorrect):
- "Positive discrimination" is prevalent. Black people have grown to abuse it, hence "Because I'm black!" which is used as an argument way more times than it should.
- Feeling of entitlement ("But-but-but the PAST!"). Black people pedal on this past like there's no tomorrow.
I mean, c'mon, we here in Romania have a large minority of Gypsies. 10% of all population, officially, but unofficially they make 15-17% most likely. There are huge similarities between them and the black population in the States, including slavery in the past. But they don't pedal on positive discrimination (they can't there isn't any) and never say "because I'm a Gypsy!" because nobody cares.
If a Gypsy would search his Google Photos and see matches for "crow" (which is what we use in Romania as the N word), he would laugh and shrug it off, without knowing what an algorithm is.
