Now, are those the jobs they were supposedly "denied" by racist white employers?
Or is the spin making you a little dizzy?
No, those were the jobs lost in the great recession that occurred during the administration of President George W. Bush.

You don't know what you are talking about. Those that defraud the system must be caught to show up as fraud. The government does not want to look for the fraud because they fear the race card. I see people defrauding the system everyday. I see overweight people buying carts full of food at Costco and Sam's Club with their 6 overweight children in tow, only to walk outside and see them loading their purchase into a Cadillac or Mercedes or Hummer. I see people with their handicapped placard pull into the handicapped parking space only to jump out and run into the store. I see people living in section 8 housing sitting on the front porch everyday in the same spot, never going anywhere, never looking for a job, just waiting for the check to come in the mail.
Prove that they live below poverty level even with assistance!

<quoted text>Statistics themselves can't be racist.

HOW statistics are gathered or categorized or separated CAN be racist.

HOW people attempt to interpret those statistics by claiming it indicates something wrong with "blacks or the black race or black culture" IS racist.

Dividing statistics by race when race is not a direct contributing factor promotes racism.

A non-racist would categorize the statistics on RELAVENT FACTORS like poverty or education level, not race.

Of course a racist like you can't understand any of that.....
The fact you refuse to admit there could be something wrong with the black culture, and feel that blacks are always right no matter the subject or situation, IS racist.

Thanks for proving your racism once again.

Btw, you don't prove a negative. Someone with a supposed medical background (or any intelligence whatsoever) should know that.
Not at all. I'm claiming that blacks as a race or culture are over represented in some negative categories despite special treatment. You say it has nothing to do with their race or culture. I am asking you to prove it.

It's not proving a negative, its proving your stance on the subject.

Your insults once again prove your inability to rebut with any substance.

Lol. So now you want to utilize the 13% black population compared to 72% white? Lmao! Priceless!
If you take 100 people in the US, 13 are black, 72 are white. If 4 blacks lost their job, and 11 whites lost theirs, blacks lost their jobs at a rate twice that of whites.
You want to utilize those statistics yet deny, avoid, and make excuses when it reflects negatively on blacks. That IS racist,

More B.S. opinion from an avowed racist doesn't carry much weight.

Aaah, more proof of you racism once again.

I never said blacks are always right; NO ONE is always right regardless of their race.

So enlighten us; just what's wrong with the "black culture"?

Simple- there are millions of whites & Hispanics & Asians etc who are poor, on welfare, single moms, using drugs, committing violent crimes, etc, etc, all despite receiving "special treatment" as well.

Whites in particular have received more "special treatment" for 200+ years than blacks have ever received in the 50 years of lame affirmative action programs and yet there are STILL millions of whites living in poverty, on welfare, committing violent crimes, etc, etc.

So if there is something wrong with blacks or black culture, then the same thing must be wrong with whites & Hispanics & Asians etc.

Which of course brings us back to the common denominator- INCOME & EDUCATION.

Fix that and it fixes the problem for ALL races & cultures.

But instead you'd rather blame it on their race or culture and ignore the same problem in the "white culture".

It's what racists do.

Parenting seems to be one of the biggest problems. Black kids are allowed to run the streets at all hours without any supervision.
Black fathers are especially to blame for the way the kids turn out, because most of them are not involved in the kids' lives once the conception is over.
Black mothers are becoming a bigger problem, because they have kids one after the other and usually drop them off at the grandmother's house. Grandmothers raise more of this generations kids than the mothers do.
Just facts, WMCOL, nothing more.
