Did you carefully read what I said?? I'm not talking about the Gospel according statistics lol. I just think that you seem to focus more on black people. I don't think I've ever seen you write so passionately about the other MYRIAD social ills. Correct me if I'm wrong. I really think it's more important things to life than the problems of black people that you love to make front and center lol. Does it make you feel good that you were not born the wrong color? I'm sure you feel a HUGE relief when you look at the pretty white skin huh??(BTW a certain fork-tongued Demoness need not respond. I just know that you read this.)
The problems of black people are eventually everyone else's problem. Polite civil society is becoming more rare, thanks in part to blacks and their problems.

Non-Asian minorities are the problem, where ever in America they happen to be. Let's be honest , at least.

Speak for yourself. In my community, minorities, along with whites, are wealthy, classy, well-spoken and educated.

Right. Well, honestly, I'm glad that your bias is well documented lol. You failed to mention, though, the problems of everyone else too. One in particular I'm thinking of is the problems that people in corporate America (mostly white) create. While not quite new, what's fresh on my mind with glaring clarity is the Enron scandal of like 2000-01. The head triumvirate (Kenneth Lay, Andrew Fastow, and Jeffrey Skilling) destroyed millions of lives and cost billions of dollars. You know why? GREED. You seem to have a singular focus on minorities as the cause of America's woes. That line of logic and thought is intrinsically flawed. As I said, why have you never spoken out so passionately about corporations that destroy millions of lives? or about that nut in Aurora, CO? or about the tragedies that happen everyday elsewhere NOT related to "non-Asian minorities?"

Yes, I am half scotch/irish. Good guess. Let me just ask you a simple question, how many neighborhoods that are predominantly white are you afraid to go in and how many neighborhoods that are predominantly black are you afraid to go in, be honest? To the other person who asked why people seem so concerned with black violence, uh, it is because we are scared. I know, I know, bring up the dude in Colorado and he is white, so we are all crazy now. That was one dude, but look at all of the black violence that occurs everyday, you are lying to yourself. How many times do you hear about white kids beating up an old man? How many times do you hear about black kids doing that? That is cowardly and just wrong. Go ahead and defend it though. Lack of accountability.

See this is the biggest problem with blacks. Pass the buck and hope for the best. If things continue on this path, society as a whole is going to suffer with the lawlessness and lack of morality that plagues blacks.

You can say to me whatever you will but you cannot refute the fact that it is blacks that commit most crime in America..be it drug/gun/murder/and especially rape. Keep looking the other way, and eventually it will go away right? Too bad it doesn't work that way.

And what I am saying, if I met you and you speak like you speak and you seem like a good dude, do you really think I would give a shit that you are black, do you think I care what people I don't know think? That would be pretty shallow. I used to be an idealist and now I am a realist. I see what I see, so you can say what ever you want. I can tell you I hate no one because of their skin color, so again, if you were a good dude, me and you would probably get along just fine. As a whole, your race causes much more destruction and senseless violent crime than any other. The truth is in the numbers.

And a good portion of your race has that sense of entitlement, like shit supposed to be free to them. WTF! Why does a lot of your culture put down education and working a regular job? Maybe not you, but a lot of your race. I work my a.. off everyday and can't sleep at night without taking a sleeping pill thinking about problems and then I see some dude with 3 kids by me, who slings weed and plays xbox all day, getting high in front of his kids with nicer sh.t than me and more food in their fridge cause of food stamps and by selling their EBT card doing nothing all day and I get pissed off. Cool dude, I buy my stuff from him, but it makes me mad. He is always thinking of some get rich quick scheme. Nice dude, lack of integrity and honesty, not trying to pull his weight, not trying to be productive in society. I know a lot of brothers like that. All cool, but I don't respect that gangster lifestyle.

Blacks in this country are bringing it down? You are one stupid SOB! If anything, the criminality of "YOUNG PEOPLE" both Black and White, are the only things that keep plenty of communities from totally going under, especially when a jail is built in some white suburb in upstate New York or wherever, employing hundreds of people. If anything, it's dumb arses like you who are bringing the country down because you seem to think that juvenile delinquents are responsible for the Banks failing, for the ongoing wars overseas, for the high arse taxes that we pay, for the outsourcing of jobs overseas, and for the importing of a cheap, illegal labor force from South America. You think juvenile delinquents are responsible for wages basically staying the same for the last few decades, while the price of housing, food, heat, electric, etc. has gone up.
"Blacks as a demographic are starting to act like terrorists, rather then setting the example of a responsible, and law abiding citizen." This is your assessment of the black demographic, which by all accounts is not very intelligent. You are asking Blacks to be what your people have never, EVER BEEN!
And thats why blacks in Africa still practice slavery to this day? My "people" are responsible for your freedom and the right to vote and participate in the American system of opportunity. You sound like an ungrateful, angry piece of shit to me.

First thing, I'm not a black kid, I'm a grown arse man, who will not defend criminality by his race, anymore than you will defend it when one of your kin is the culprit. And I would greatly appreciate it, if you and your ilk discontinue to bore mature, adult, grown men with conversations about some damn thug, or someone on welfare. My intellect is much too advanced for that clown conversation over and over again. It is quite obvious that the most cheated, deprived individuals in America are whites. Look at u ho's topic of conversation. It's either about killing or welfare. U kill your own damn selves more via suicide, via a gun, three times as much as the total number of homicides committed by all the races combined in these United States. Welfare, u guys are on it the most, but you are so unintelligent and insecure you "think" Blacks are draining the system. Never mind the Billions that we send to Israel (welfare), or the corporate welfare (they pay little to no taxes and they are still given damn near a trillion dollars for a bail-out). U guys for the most part have very little understanding of the issues you speak so loudly about.

Ok so you feel that I'm passing the buck? Is it because you can't refute what I've said about corporate America? Yes black people commit crime at disproportionately high rates. However, in the context of this argument, I would say greedy corporations affect communities more than the thugs and delinquents who often reside in urban areas. At least with the the thugs and delinquents they are fairly localized. When companies decide to slash jobs because of the economy, greed, or even go out of business, the repercussions are felt by thousands, if not millions. Now mind you, I AM NOT CONDONING OR EXCUSING CRIMINAL ACTS OR BEHAVIOR. It's wrong! I am simply saying that the woes of America are not even mostly tied to "non-Asian minorities."

Selling ridiculous pyramid schemes seems to be a jewish specialty for getting rich.
Afro-blacks earn their bread in a more honest way, through Affirmative Action.
Asian indians are not afro-americans, although Indians are still relatively rich through their business practices.
Yeah, try telling Oprah Winfrey, Bob Johnson, Magic Johnson, Russell Simmons, Kathy Hughes, ME, that we are what we are because of affirmative action and not because of the way we conduct business dumb @$$! And those Ashkenazi are much more elaborate than mere pyramid schemes, you had better learn who your daddy is in Europe and the USA.

Ignoring slavery is pretty dumb. We moved passed it 147 years ago as a nation. So why are your fellow Africans still subjecting other blacks to it today? Why do blacks in America not care about it either?

First off, take your ass, not arse back to England. Second, you just belittle people who say anything against you, back it up with facts. I'll google some sh.t and I can show you the numbers. You talk sh.t and have no figures to back it up. You have very little understanding of the issues you speak about, you just fabricate sh.t and then back it up with some government or corporate bulls.hit. I am not talking about the elite whites or the government. I am talking everyday people black and white, and your everyday people cause more destruction than whites any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

And if you are a successful black man or woman then you should be proud of yourself and what you are and again you are not one of the black people most people are probably referring too. But if you try to tell me as a whole that whites, and I am not talking corporate America, most of us whites are not CEO's we are regular people, commit more violent crimes than blacks, you are a fu.king lying ass mot.er fu.ker. Do you really think I would just make up stuff just cause your black? I really don't care what you look like. I have always thought and said that every race and nationality has something to bring to the table. I don't think blacks are inherently less intelligent, but black culture is fu.ked up with its viewpoints on morality and violence. Apparently you weren't raised or brought up that way and that's good, but if you don't see that around you in black culture, then you are as blind as a bat.
