I work with all sorts of people every day.
There is plenty of ignorance or lack of education in the white community.
The first four posts are supporting evidence.
There is a large percentage of white people who are just as stupid as the perpetrator in the crime being discussed.
If any of you four morons were black, the other three would probably be talking about you.
All of you have the benefit of being white so bigoted people like yourselves give you the benefit of the doubt.
The saddest thing for humanity is that you are all too ignorant to even begin to understand what I am explaining.

Let's see. An obviously well fed and dressed man, fress from receiving 12 years of free education at $10-15,000 per year, attempts to violently steal a car, thereby likely exchanging his right to freedom for a prison cell for the next 5 or 10 years. He also likely forfeits his right to vote until he receives his general discharge some years down the road, as well as his right to own or possess a handgun for the rest of his life. After his release he will have a very difficult time obtaining a decent job, and will be picked up at odd hours to go down to police stations to stand in line ups.

And now some anonymous blogger calls him an ape and you take offense. Well, quite frankly, I don't think apes are as stupid as Mr. Crosby. But I agree that there are plenty of whites just as stupid.

I don't know about the whole white privilege thing, I don't see working your butt off, obeying society's rules, and supporting everyone else while they ride on your back and have fun as being all that great of a privilege.

If anything were to come out of this, the earlier poster should write a written apology to apes and send it to an ape sanctuary.

But, what do I know, I'm too ignorant to understand what you are writing.

How often does an obviously well fed and dressed man who is fresh from receiving 12 years of free education at $10-15,000 per year, attempt to violently steal a car?

Your analogy demonstrates how out-of-touch you are with reality.
I assure you the sort of situation you described happens far more often to someone who, along with their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, grew up being discriminated against and who earned far less income than their white counterparts.

I worked in the black community for years and learned first hand that the affects of discrimination go far deeper than the vast majority of white will ever understand.

One of my good friends who is black paid far more for all the same things you and I buy because he grew up and lives in areas less affluent than the working class area I grew up in. His car costs less than mine yet he paid more for car insurance with the same company as me because his neighborhood was considered a higher risk area and that despite the fact his driving record was slightly better than mine.

That is just one of numerous examples of how his skin color made his life more difficult. Put all of those issues along side discrimination from the numerous whites who treat people of color as inferiors and you get maybe a small glimpse of the challenge of climbing out of poverty face by a person of color.

I can only deduce your level of ignorance from what you write here and what I know about all of the white people I personally know and how your writing mirrors what I hear for those individuals.
Based on that I am fairly confident you likely are too ignorant to actually understand what I am trying to explain.

I have tried to patiently explain all of the complexities of how race affects people but most people I know are just incapable of following that complex of a discussion and that includes most of the blacks I know.

But one thing most blacks are acutely aware of is how they are viewed and treated differently than others with a different ethnicity because when you live with colored skin every day of your life you see far more examples than someone who grew up without those challenges.

I have red hair and freckles, a "ginger kid", and often the treatment I received for that difference was clearly noticeable. Yet it was minor when compared to the discrimination my black friends received. I witnessed some of that discrimination first hand when with them.

I tend to take a dim view of ignorant people whose highly opinionated views lack a solid base of facts.

Okay. Now I understand. Mr. Cosby can just explain to the judge how he was discriminated against and he will be let off. But what if the victim of the car jack was black also? And what if the victim and his or her neighbor's insurance rates go up as a result of statistically greater car claims in their neighborhood? Can't they just get a discrimination waiver or discount? Do you get one for your freckles?

..That's racist. Figured we were passed that. It proves its not. No marching on Washington. No getting shot by your own race making a speech. No thousands of men giving their lives fighting will stop it. Racism is still here. What if every race took their own stance. Chinese may be the strongest. So america shouldn't be racist.

I think what those of us who are not close minded bigots and/or racists need to keep in mind is, those who make comments such as found here are a very small percentage of the population as a whole.

That being so, they are irrelevant. People such as they get on forums and make the same imbecilic useless comments just to get attention. They don't really care about justice or improving a community they are just a lot of malcontents who have very little control over their own situation and have to seek out someone to blame for their personal failures.

Sure there's crime everywhere committed by all races, that's nothing new and neither are racists of any color new. The best option IMO, is to let them rant the more they do that the more they prove their overwhelming ignorance.
probation

If this criminal gets the same prosecutor and judge as did te man who burned down the Hallsferry Inn, all this criminal will get, is a Fine and Probation. Criminals have open season these days. Jails are full, no place to put criminals, so fines and probation.
Why even bother.
