I absolutely understand that. One must think about the root sources of crime; if we are going to continue to create an entire subculture of felons, then crime will increase. People have to eat and if doors are continually closed to people by the only legal way to totally discriminate against a person, then we get nowhere.
If people have a job and a place to live, then they will be less likely to commit crimes.
They don't understand, it's not about race, it's about opportunity. Homer grew up poor and while I am not suggesting I can relate to being a black person in America but it's a fcking struggle when you are poor. I cannot even imagine being a poor black person, not much to look forward to.

Benghazi survivors sign 'keep mouth shut' NDAs...
"According to trusted sources that have contacted my office, many if not all of the survivors of the Benghazi attacks along with others at the Department of Defense, the CIA have been asked or directed to sign additional non-disclosure agreements about their involvement in the Benghazi attacks. Some of these new NDAs, as they call them, I have been told were signed as recently as this summer."

They're protecting "Israel". Duh! Just like "Israeli double agent" "Edward Snowden". Only point the finger at the "U.S.", never ever Israel.

Evil WalMart...
"...Wal-Mart boasts that “75% of its store management started as entry-level hourly associates, and they earn between $50,000 and $170,000 a year — similar to what firefighters, accountants, and even doctors make.” And similar to what an assistant professor earns at Princeton University —$94,000 — and many Wal-Mart managers make even much more than that."
hahahaahahah! Store manager earning more than a Professor.....
http://www.aei-ideas.org/2013/07/wal-mart-des...
The store manager works a lot harder.

Or maybe not...he just sits in his office, confident that his department managers are doing a great job, without checking up on them.

Profiling is a common sense survival response. Period. No racism involved.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.
Profiling saves innocent lives.
Coming from someone known to say dumshit, I shouldn't be surprised!
It's not racist to profile an ethnic group for the crimes committed by a small percentage? So, even without using your ideology as a launching pad, you're a racist but, using your ideology, all black people should view all white people as racist! Is that what you're telling me? You sir are a moron. The fact that you feel the need to dispel or, crime what's racist & what's not, proves your racist nature without question.

And then they vote for Obama who doesn't really care one way or the other about them except to exploit their own problems instead of help them find solutions, keep them dependent on democrats and get their vote.

So in your mind Jews killed each other

Considering the stir he and/or President Jarrett created - directing NBC to create a racially charged case that didn't exist - I must say his little speech was quite nice.

DUH! That's why the "jews" "selected" him. He's the perfect "Weapon of Mass Distraction". If a "white person" criticizes his "policies", they're labeled as "racist". If a "black person" criticizes him... Guess what? They're an "Uncle Tom".
