I think their self esteem isn`t low.

In fact, it`s too high.

They consider themselves to be human beings, while they are just human like chimps.

[8/2/12] OK. Black Inmate Kills Himself In Jail Cell.

state and/or federal agancies must be cracking down or something - this is supposed to be their home but such cases are exploding throughout the nation.

http://enidnews.com/state/x328561657/OSP-rele...

``Oklahoma State Penitentiary inmate Julius J. Parker, age 26, died after starting a fire in his cell. Parker covered his window and started a fire in his cell.

Parker was removed from his cell and medical personnel immediately provided medical assistance and transported the inmate to OSP’s Medical Unit.

He was then taken to a local hospital, where he died a short time later, the warden's assistant said.“The exact cause of death is unknown at this time,” he added.

No staff injuries were reported as a result of the incident, which is currently under investigation by OSP. Parker was serving 30 years.

He was incarcerated for multiple Tulsa County convictions, including robbery with firearms. He was scheduled to be released in December of 2032.``

*In all honesty...I'd have to admit that I've never been accused of "Having low self esteem"...ever in my entire life...now if anything I have however been accused of being arrogant,cocky and too confident"

So I can't relate to the assertion of this thread!

Why is this?
Dodging a coat hangar the first 9 months of their life probably gets it started. Being rescued from a garbage dumpster half suffocated in a trash bag should kill any possibility at self esteem until starvation kicks in at 3 yrs of age. By 12 crack is taking its toll and then by 14 or 15 jail puts the finishing touch on things. Coming out a bonafide cocksucking punk without an education and hooked on having a dick or two up the dirtshute twice a day and self esteem is history! I hope this explains this ongoing phenomenon for you! Feel free to help your beloved breathren anytime. A well placed bullet a day keeps a low esteemed pervert away! LOL!

More black males are found eliminating themselves by their own hand for reasons that range from not wanting to be charged for their crimes to insecurity and failed relationships with women. Much proof exists and Dorner is only our latest example. His wife also left him previously, which probably furthered his rage.

Wow...really?...okay never mind the fact that Dorner is a random individual bm...who has more military and police training and experiences than most people/men...black,white or other in the general public have any understanding of...not to mention experience with!

And the fact that most of the men on the FBI's as well as most of the world security branche's most wanted list...to this very day...are in fact overwhelmingly non-black males!

* http://www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/MostWanted....

And tell me...what's with this recent phenomenon of white males shooting up people in the general public...I mean what's behind all of the mass public shootings...are they doing this to make things better for whites..is that it?

Now tell me...tell us all...how does taking an automatic weapon...going out into public and shooting and killing random innocent victims...because things just aren't working out for you as an individual...designed to help white society?

Even if not done by the trigger, it's likely that Dorner's demise was still self-inflicted, nonetheless. Perhaps a crude self-immolation of sorts.

Stupid...clearly...you lack any real understanding of matters of this nature...we have no way of knowing if the guy is still alive or lying in a morgue somewhere...the whole story is fabricated...anyone with the sort of education that I have can smell it fifty miles away!

The guy is highly trained and most likely still alive and on the run...they merely reported that they had killed him...because he was making them look like clueless amateurs!

Do you have to constantly go to the most extremes length to show just how fcking stupid you are?

So let me get this straight...on one thread...bm are accused of thinking that all women want us...which would clearly indicate that we have far too much self esteem....now here we are being accused of having low self esteem...NOW WHICH IS IT?

*And while I've been labeled many things...being a man with low self esteem has never been one of them!

Oh where to begin, first the black community doesn't really seek mental health help, its stigmatized heavily. So alot of black individuals who have anxiety and depression never get diagnosed or helped and instead some self medicate with drugs and alcohol. Many black households lack a father or have a father who aint worth a lick. Young men need good role models to mold themself after and someone to put the foot in the anus. Then there is the demonization of black males in the media. What many black males need is just plain ol simple LOVE. Its more complicated than that but love will do alot of good.

Sorry sport...but contrary to what you seem to believe...white men didn't invent indoor plumbing not at all!

Now they can be credited with lying,cheating,murdering and raping a bunch of people who look nothing like them...it's just what they've done!

What I'd like to know is this...where are all of these arrogant,cocky and so sure of themselves white guys around me...because whenever I'm out and about or even in the office...they never stand up and act the way that they do here on Topix...never!

No instead...they act like little insecure...intimidated little bytches who know that they'd better proceed with caution!

What's funny as hell to me...is the way that they constantly apologize to me...for every word and action that they make!

Hmmm...maybe they're just being sensitive and cautious...because they sense that I have such low self esteem..lmbao!

Intimidate people with brawn, do ya? Likely becuase you're a little short changed when it comes to intellect. Wanting to make people scared of you goes hand in hand with having low self esteem. Thats what bullying is all about.

Really?...who said anything about brawn over brains?

Aren't you making an assumption here and just attempting to stigmatize and minimize another bm...as being an uneducated, senseless and violent beast...how original!

Most people that know me in the real world...have a great deal of respect for me based solely upon my intellect!

So you just jumping out into traffic and making assumptions...about a person...based on your own limited...perhaps racist perceptions of others...that is the need to stigmatize and sum up others...in a way that you are comfortable with...

I mean to simply read a comment posted by a black man...on an online forum and to then project things into the comment...that clearly aren't even there...because they were never stated...

what would you surmise that such behavior is based upon...I mean if that doesn't sound like something that an individual with low self esteem would do...then what does?

Where did I state that my use of brawn in any way,shape or form was the cause of the behavior of the white males in question?

From a stand still...I'm the least physically threatening individual that you could ever meet...of course I've been trained...in various ways and have experience in defending myself...but that's generally the last thing that I'd resort to...until it's absolutely necessary!

*And just for the record...I'm not the guy with the white superhero as my avatar...that would be you sport!

If you'll take a closer look...my photo is of a married couple...with a bm showing his new bride love and affection!

Now really how threatening is that?

Well while I realize that you just might be right on this point...I still take the time to come here to Topix and try...by mixing it up with guys like you...for what it's worth!

I just chalk it up to being a more convenient form of community service!

I don't even have to leave my home or bedroom to put in the hours....that's the real beauty of it!
