Thanks for the link. I guess I have been over identifying with the plight of black people. Giving them a pass as it were. It just seemed that if a black person got too successful, or had too much of a following, they seemed to be targeted in some way. But I guess I/we have to look a little more carefully into some of the dynamics surrounding it. And of course, what is our reality at this moment in time. Thanks.
In addition to the suggestions so far, I think you could also greatly benefit from reading some basic material about psychopathology in general and especially about psychopathy. The colour of the skin doesn't say one thing about a person, neither does the social status. See Obama for example. He climed up to the argumentatively highest position in the world as preseident even though he is black. He is black and what has he done? You can search on SOTT as well, about his deeds.
Here you can find a number of books that should give you a better perspective about those topics. Some of the books under point 2, 5 and 11 should give you a good start.
Thanks for the links. I have Political Ponerology, Snakes in Suits, and Without Conscience on my Kindle and I am working my way through them.
One of the books I found extremely eye opening was Anna Salter's book "Predators: Pedophiles, Rapists, And Other Sex Offenders". At times I found it difficult to read, to imagine just how twisted, dark, self serving and evil people can be. But in my opinion it is invaluable knowledge, which helped me to better understand why people commit such heinous acts.
