Everything is OUR fault.

2. None of your business! The fact that the minorities choose not to deposit their money into the american banking system has only a negative effect on the banks!
Bull you don't know what you're talking about.

WHO CARES??
Find something else to complain about! This is a waste of time!

Then why do you continue to post?

Po thing, I have seen other folks in stores with food stamps and they sure look healthy to me to have a job. You know the other good folks that yall don't speak of. They don't have kids because Planned Parenthood got them all sucked up.

I actually took it as a joke...if I would have asked my father that question that would have been the first response of his :) Thanks for the further info, as my husband and I have not yet bought a house etc.(unfortunately still in an apartment, at least for another 6 months) two accounts have been sufficient for us.

NewsFlash!! Meth-heads are White!!!

I lived and all cash live for many years (and lot's of it by the way) Having a debit card is about as convenient as me having a housekeeper. It's nice but I surely am no less of a person if I don't.

Focus you yourself and not others. You may surprise yourself at how much you can accomplish!

I forgot to mention, 12 of those are business banking! lol!

As for buying a house, stick around honey! They're getting cheaper by the hour!

I use to keep money in Nike shoe boxes when I sold drugs back in the '80s. At one point, I had 189,000.00 in shoe boxes! How crazy is that? Now I have 6 bank accounts, Money Market Accounts, CD's, etc...

Effort? You just lost most of the posters on here who would probably like to be "back in the system"...effort and work to the blacks is like kryptonite to Superman and holy water to Vampires...deadly when exposed too.
Kinda like honesty and integrity to whites huh? Throw in a little toxic equality and we have all the makings of pure poison huh?

Get a life you piece of sh1t! Worry about your own pitiful life instead of insulting someone elses!

No kidding. But had I used crackhead, thug, or any other reference to the type of person that will break into another person's home and steal from them, it would have further devolved into a racial thing, and the posters would be sure to point out the "typically white" crimes. Saved them the trouble.

Blacks are "unbanked" in high numbers b/c they are suspicious of banks.

Blacks do noy use banks because they have no concept of saving for tomorrow. They spend every dime they can lay their hands on and beg for more. They have been taught that the gubmint will do for them whatever they do not want to do for themselves so welfare checks go for weaves, nails and Escalades. Let de gubmint feed, clothe and house the children. Welfare numbers use the race of the mother and classify the whole family under that race. A FUD (Fat, Ugly, and/or Dumb white girl who breeds with monkeys) with several halfbreed dependents would be classified as white so the numbers are somewhat skewed. Still thogh blacks are 12% of the population, 95% of blacks are on some form of gubmint handout.
