"that point in which they lost their numerical majority and their hold on economic and political power"
That isn't a single point. Those are two completely separate things. Look to history. Numerical majority and hold on power have little to do with each other. With the political structure designed how it is, the "whites" will lose the former fairly soon in this country, but retain the latter for generations to come.
There's another huge aspect to this issue that no one has even touched on. In Jackie Robinson's day baseball was king. Where was the NFL 50 years ago? There wasn't even a superbowl yet. The NBA, which started in 1946, was still irrelevant. There was no soccer in American to speak of. A child's sports choices were much much more limited. Baseball was the great American pasttime then, and nothing else was really even close. As a baseball fan I hate to admit this, but now football is knig. Look at what's on TV today, football gets crammed down our throats in huge doses, NFL and college. The NBA seems more popular with todays black youth than does baseball. We also have xgames type sports now and more fringe sports like lacrosse. So I guess my point is, to accurately decide if there is some sort of racial problem with a disproportionate number of blacks in pro sports, you need to look at pro sports as a whole. Looking only at baseball won't tell you much, except that baseball is a much smaller peice of the overall sports pie today. If black youths have more choices today (and they do) and they aren't choosing baseball, who cares. That's not a problem, its a trend, or a cultural shift. They happen. Move on.
"I am sure EO is quite lovely. Would just love someone to tell me the real difference
between them and E.Bay or Bohemian?"
Well for one thing they are a brewery. Why dont you wait til youve been there to judge.
"How about just one non alcoholic late night coffeehouse/diner with live music and parking on Morrison?"
Last time I checked, none of these establishments are forcing you to order alcohol. Im pretty sure its acceptable for you to go to one, order your coffee and food, enjoy some music, and pass on the hooch.
"Its not enough of a douchecanoe filled shitshow every wkd as it is.
How about just one non alcoholic late night coffeehouse/diner with live music and parking on Morrison?
Hell, I would take to 10pm on the regular if i could get it.
Savannah and Asheville have these options."
Maybe you should take your shitty negative attitude, throw it in your douchcanoe, and paddle your ass to Savannah or Asheville. Im sure their coffeehouses would be psyched to see you coming.
"Will they have Coors Light? Damn Rarebit doesn't carry it. It's not like the Bandit has to haul it back from Golden."
The bandit didnt go to Golden, he went to Texarkana.
So there was a panic show and people drank, smoked, and peed in the bushes. In other news water is wet and McDonalds sells hamburgers. This is news? Seriously?
