Okay, I won't be mean - Marsha told me I have a bad temper. I only see a problem because of his job position tied in with what he said, not in what he said by itself.

It is a shame That Andrew Young did not encourage the black community to work like the Koreans,Arabs,Indians and Jews.Long hours and sacrifices, instead of trying to live for free and complain about everything.These mechants endure holdups,muggings and killings by the sams people who refuses to work.

Lots of blacks are violent do-nothings. It's really a shame, especially for all the hard-working blacks who have to live amongst them. It makes me think of the whole Chris Rock act where he says he hates n****** and wants to join the KKK to get rid of them.

I'm white and I have to say that of all immigrants I have encountered I have never had a problem with any asian. They are hard working, productive people that love thier families and really appreciate the opportunities that this country has to offer. Most blacks I've known complain about everything, never want to lift a finger to help you when they are "working" in a store and are always looking for a government hand out like they are "owed" something, not to mention constantly being impregnanted out of wedlock by every guy in town. "oh yeah, dat my baby daddy ova der, now gimmie a dolla". How about a free one-way ticket eastward approx. 3,000 miles?
