Ha!!! To funny. There is a large percent of white people doing th same thing you just discribed. Society fell when the european settler decided to steal land that was not theirs. There are plenty of blacks who work hard and live upstanding lives. You white people choose to focus on the ones who dont and try to kick down the one who are exceling far above you all in things other than sports. So how about you make a comment about your real feelings, fear that there are several blacks out here that have excelled way pas you and you cant quite catch up.

Isn't their biggest comeback always that there are more of them, less of us....So wouldn't it be a bit hard to believe that we would account - on the larger scale - of people doing the things you've described?:-\.....Or is this technique only used when itís beneficial to you all?

I don't get the slavery thing, but I think every individual should take responsibility. Graffiti is mostly done by White though, so that's the wrong stereotype. Anyway you sort of made a good point, you just stated it in a bad kind of way. But, there are plenty of White people whom don't work.

I admit, my post was WAY overgeneralized, and most likely in some ways incorrect. However, the economy preceding and during the time of the US civil war was heavily reliant on human labor -- the Industrial Revolution changed the type of labor people were doing, and even increased the demand for labor, to the point of requiring (poor, white) children to work in factories.
The civil war was not fought over slavery. The civil war was fought over economic differences between the North and South, and slavery got tossed in at the end to get the support of Blacks, which was a clever strategic move by Lincoln.

Really? I've never heard of that. At least we're free, so I'm glad it got tossed in. LOL. Anyway, thank you for the information about that.

Oh, definitely, it was a tactical economic move by Lincoln to make slavery an issue. See, the North was dependent on Industry, which wasn't reliant on slavery, but the South was reliant on Agriculture, which was heavily reliant on slavery. It was an economic war -- the poor South wanted to split off from the Union because of what they perceived as economic injustice -- which was actually simply the distribution of rich industry and poor agriculture. Lincoln could weaken the South's economic support of its troops by yanking its feet (its Black slaves) out from its cotton fields by making slavery an issue.
A brilliant chess move. And he won the civil war.

well, if you can, then give me an accurate number p diddy. But I am sure the number is still very low. I have a business, and I do hire blacks. In 16 years of my business, only one has truly succeeded, and he gets paid very well. One out of around 300 has made it. why is that?

Well, are certain businesses and governments required to hire a certain percentage due to affirmative action? That puts skin color before job performance or training.

Yes, i am required to have a certain percentage of blacks. But if they can't perform correctly, then I also have the right to fire them. My project manager(which is black), is a lot harder than I am. His success is his own example, and he expects the same from his fellow black man. Nothing pisses him off more, than giving a black man a chance, then he just throws it away.

probably because it is difficult working for a blatant racist.
