Does Anybody Remember the So-called Isarali Black List? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

In the seventies a lot of Engineering and Construction was going on in the Middle-East. I remember the Israeli Black List (An American firm had to certify they would not do business with an Israli firm if they wanted to do business in the Middle-East) was being hotly debated in the press. The general concenus (the party line being laid-down by the US Government) was that there was no such thing as a black. Imagine my surprize when I took a position in Saudi Arabia and had to sign a statement that I would not do business with an Israli firm.

Makes one wonder how much spin is played by the Government on Y2K.

Thats easy for you to say.

More Government/media "spin" can be found in the racial areas. Anytime a white does something to some poor "minority" person (you know, that 89% "minority" of the world's population) the media runs the story *everywhere*. However, in the MUCH more common case of a "minority" attacking a white, race is almost never mentioned.

It doesn't matter if you despise living around blacks and mexicans like I do, or love 'em and want your sons & daughters to live & breed with them. In either case, the Government/media LIES BY OMMISION!!
