You know, every single person that I personally know from growing up to adulthood who: beat their familes, molested their daughters, committed robberies, or were drug addicts are ALL CAUCASIAN.

Especially growing up, back in the day, it was considered 'noone's business' to report abuse, whether emotional, physical, or incest.

What I also know, is that many of them were either never charged because the victims where too intimidated to turn them in or in the case of TWO, they are police officers who had the 'support'(ie: lying cohorts) to get off of the charge.

Hmmmm ~ go figure...

Larry, I don't think that was the message Hard Working Latino was attempting to express. No one race is free and clear of criminal charges, I work with the system and see enough to know.

I wasn't responding to the post from HWL, which is why I didn't hit 'Reply'.

You are correct that no one race is 'free and clear' however, the caucasians (of which I am) certainly, and undeniably have had the upper hand through the ages.

What I stated in my post was from personal experience growing up in Ashby, which to this day is pretty small in comparison to the likes of Fitchburg and Leominster.

Even then, it was extremely rare to see caucasians in the news compared to other races, especially with the knowledge we had of our own families, and our friends & school peers families, who we knew had extreme violators within their own homes and which went unreported and uncharged due to 'family and civil issues - not criminal'.

To this day it boggles the mind what police officers overlooked when it concerned 'white families' but then we would see in the news that families of other races (the same races my own parents trashed constantly) were charged.

There is just no denying that caucasions through the centuries have it better than others. BTW - I am of Irish/Finnish/English decent & am caucasion.
