This website will serve to educate the general public on Black people and the Stuff That Black People Don't Like. Black people have many interesting eccentricities, which include disliking a litany of everyday events, places, household objects and other aspects of their everyday life.
Black people are an interesting subject matter and this website will chronicle the many problems in life that agitate this group of people.

War on Whites?
Those who peddle some silly mantra (anti-racist is code word for "anti-white")?
U.S. Army sociologists are worried that a lack of black officers
leading its combat troops will have detrimental effect on minorities and
lead to fewer black officers in top leadership posts.
"The issue exists. The leadership is aware of it," Brig. Gen. Ronald Lewis told USA Today on Thursday. "The leadership does have an action plan in place. And it's complicated."
Army reports that only 10 percent of its active-duty officers are
black, which has contributed to its dearth of black officers leading
soldiers with occupational specialties in infantry, armor and artillery.
certainly is a problem for several reasons," Col. Irving Smith,
director of sociology at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, told
USA Today. "First we are a public institution. And as a public
institution we certainly have more of a responsibility to our nation
than a private company to reflect it. In order to maintain their trust
and confidence, the people of America need to know that the Army is
not only effective but representative of them."
research found that 25 relevant brigades it looked at did not have a
single black commander in 2014. For 2015, the paper reported that there
will be two black commanders of combat brigades.
Santana, 33, spoke to the paper and asserted that it wasn't
discrimination that was causing a lack of minority officers in key posts
— the supply of desired soldiers in his military occupational specialty
simply wasn't there.
"It's not a good feeling when you're one
of the few," Capt. Santana told USA Today.
"There was no
discrimination; there are just not a lot of people like you."
paper also noted that of the 238 West Point graduates commissioned to be
infantry officers in 2012, only seven were black. One of the Army's
plans for addressing the issue will be to put more emphasis on
recruiting and mentoring minority officers.
Since America saw its armed forces integrated, have we actually won a war?
The one that matters.
