I wasn't gonna put my real name on here but oh well as i know from my personal experience that I've been asked the stupid questions or someone make a comment because I have nice cars and nice home and dress in nice clothes have asked me do u sell drugs or did you steal that I've never sold a drug or stole anything I've worked all my life have a college education and 2 great jobs I'm tired of this black and white debate we are all human there are bad blacks and bad whites and as Ive seen from my experience of working in surgery we all bleed red so don't assume everybody who drives nice cars are a drug dealer and everyone who drives a big jacked up truck is a racist get to know the person first then make your assumption

Well Let's See... And NOT just talking about Blacks...

But if that person don't have a J O B and drives around in and Escalade or any other High Priced vehicle with 20" + rims with the windows all tinted out and the stereo blasting so loud they couldn't hear the cops behind them if they tried... WELL... Guess what.. ANy NORMAL person is going to assume they deal or Sling.. I know ya can't afford that ride any other way unless your Rich Uncle died and left ya a bunch of Old Money...

But hey, Who are we to assume anything about anyone.... You do you and I'll do me and in the end, We will all be Judged...

How do you know they dont work? Maybe they work for home. Maybe the rich uncle left them the car. Maybe they got injured and are off recovering. Maybe they recieved some kind of settlement and dont need to work. Maybe that escalade has 200000 miles on it and is paid for. Maybe they sell drugs. I dont know and neither do you. I do know that once upon a time I drove a car with rims, speakers and tinted windows. Guess what???? I am white, and I dont sell drugs. So get a freakin life. Black people probably assume these white boys in jacked up trucks sell pills. Thats what the cops are for, to figure it out. NOT YOU!!!

You know, my apartment was broken into, and they stole my TV. They meaning the white people. Then, the cops told me my black neighbors chased them down, and the cops gave me my TV back unharmed. Personally, I think everyone should just view others as humans. We may have different "wrapping" on the outside, but we are all human. We could all learn something from all other races. There is a lot to be learned from all other cultures. Just with food for instance, I have learned a lot about how to season foods from lots of different ethnic people. I love to hear about their culture and ways of life. I'm just a white lady raised in the mountains. I didn't feel like I even learned about life until I met and spent time with people from lots of different backgrounds. Culturally, we have differences, but they make us unique and special, not "bad".

I don't believe for a second that you were educated at an accredited higher learning institution.

It's not just black people that are drug dealers. Most white people are not like that, I am not racist but in some areas around here there are racist people, mostly rednecks. And I'm not making fun of rednecks thats just the honest truth. There are people in beckley who are drug dealers and they are black, white, whatever. It's not just black people. But unfortunately west virginia is filled with drug addicts and potheads everywhere you turn and that needs to change.

What she's trying to tell you is that like Gru adopting the girls in "Despicable Me", you can put anything out here and no one will believe it.
For example...I work as an electrician at a coal-burning power plant. If I told you that I had a NASA Exceptional Engineering award and that the award was given to me by a CAIB member it sounds too outlandish to be believable.

For many, they don't believe that I even work, let alone at a power station.
