Get someone to read my post to you very very slowly. I said the reason blacks didn't pay as much taxes as whites was that blacks are a minority. You must be a Morehouse man. I don't need anyone to tell me anything about the different races, I read, and am qualified to make my own assessment about people. Bless your little heart.
if you do not want a response to your post, you should not be hitting the reply. Apparently you do not read with understanding or you would not have respond again to me. It was you who jump in my post and not the other way around. Trying to be smart do not mean that you are.

You are living proof of your last sentence; as evidenced by your lack of grammar skills.

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.
Grobbbbbbbbb
When people and I'm talking all people continue to make bad choices over and over it is no longer a mistake. At that point it needs to be called what it really is. It's called "Terminal Stupidity"!!!!

It is living proof that when you are losing the argument you attack the grammar.

Another condescending speech directed to a Black audience.

Why does the President always talk about the same subjects when talking to Black crowds, focusing on race and stereotypes? It seems rather trite in my view.

I think he is doing it to curry favor with whites, and political expediency.

I am smart enough to talk on the subject that is more than I can say about you. Any dummy can come on this site and not contribute to the subject.

If you are not able to find a person to read it to you take a reading comprehension course, and then reread my post. I solicit responses, only those which are an appropriate reply are found worth my time. You may not know it, but anyone may respond to any comment, we still adhere to the Constitution on Topix. Responding to a comment on Topix is not "jumping a post". Bless your little heart.

Don't forget obama was a community organizer in the Chicago black ghetto. He might understand the communication level of those crowds he is trying to communicate with better than most. He knows what "turns them on". Don't forget the city of Chicago is closing 50 schools, the main reason is because the schools have proven their goals of educating worthless.

I know how this site work and what the reply is for. Maybe you need to learn that when you hit the reply, you want a response from that poster. if you don`t want a response from that poster you should not hit the reply. Maybe you are not smart enough to know that.

That's your opinion, the fact is grammar usage is a clear indicator to the educational and IQ levels of the writer. Bless your little heart.

I have the nut trained like a monkey. He responds on cue. Schizophrenics like the nut don't know who they are, where they are, and tend to lie like obama. Bless his little heart.

"Reply" means the person is replying to your comment. You really don't know the purpose of "Reply". Many use it to counter stupid remarks by ignorant people like those of Cynthia McKinney, Hank "Tip" Johnson, Al Sharpton, obama, whatsup, dd, nut, and etc., and don't care if people like you respond with more of your baseless unfounded opinions. Bless your little heart.

Making a commencement speech, and leading a community rally are two different things. You are buying into the same tired rhetoric as the President. He needs to cut out condescending speeches directed to Black audiences.

Your whole response makes no sense, considering he is talking to men graduating from college, not high school dropouts. He doesn't have to dumb it down, for them to get a point.

<quoted text>All blacks do not live in Chicago and all blacks do not approve of black on black crime. In many smaller cities the crime rate is low but you would not know it since the FBI report do not say just where all the stats come from. People like you that run off and repeat what someone else has said and not really know all the facts. people that are interested in learning the truth do not find the FBI Report in the local paper. To say that blacks can control crime is someone living in fantasy. We have police with guns and still white people kill each other. Why would you think ordinary black people can control criminals when police are paid to do it.
What does this post have to do with the topic?
