Hate what you like, I was impressed by this:

“We know that too many young men in our community continue to make bad choices,” he said.“Growing up, I made quite a few myself. Sometimes I wrote off my own failings as just another example of the world trying to keep a black man down. I had a tendency sometimes to make excuses for me not doing the right thing. But one of the things that all of you have learned over the last four years, is there’s no longer any room for excuses.”

We have a black president. That alone should resonate. Does it? Or is hating white people going to be a continued problem for black Americans who refuse to recognize it as pure racism?

That's the question.

Is it just me, or does the editorial content of USA Today and The Daily Onion seem to be converging?

if you think that two groups of people represent a whole race, the same can be said that the KKK and other white supreme groups represent all white people. If you had any common sense you know those are just radical groups and do not speak for a whole race.

Are you saying the KKK is a white supremacist group? How so, seeing as there ain't no klan around anymore?

All you'll find in those places are a bunch of scared kitty cats, calling themselves the black panthers.

Clearly the KKK isn't as visible as the Black Panthers. Hmmmmm, can you just imagine if a group of KKK members pulled off the voter intimation thingy those simianesque Black Kittens pulled off in Philly. I'm sure Eric Holder and the Dept. Of JustUS and the CONTROLLED media would have been on that one 24/7. Remember when a lot of the media controlled parrots were comically saying they hadn't heard of the Black Panther thing or the funniest of all, "I was on vacation when it happened."

Really? Come on now, where is the KKK? What have they done in the last decade? In the last 2 decades? You're chasing ghosts, they don't exist anymore. The only people you see dressing like them are posers and losers. White people in the US didn't back them up and they went out of business. Why?

Because most white people are too civilized to be racists. Unlike YOU!

Accountability, responsibility and consequences are three big words that very few black men comprehend.

lets talk about people bettering themselves ahole!blacks were freed and how long after this have many been still waiting like hogs at the slop trough for social hand outs?asians have been here for a lesser time but have mostly adapted to America and have become successful!many blacks have become successful and contribute to society but a larger number haven't?the trend is also going up today for many younger whites to ride the gravy train!maybe government makes it too easy to get social handouts and its real ambition is to keep people dependent on the government?(over 48% get benefits)can you think of a better way dems. can keep these peoples votes?
