Well dipshit? Still waiting for a reply.

What about black slave owners? C'mon expert in "racism", you seem to have no problem accusing whites of being racists, what about black racists like you?

Didn't think you had the stones to answer, of course most trouble makers and liberals don't when faced with the truth.

Typical. If you don't want to be stereotyped, don't act so stereotypical.

it's pathetic that racism is portrayed as the great Satan of society, when in act there are three; hmm, like in trinity; racism, education level and mental illness.
anyone can be cause for bias, rejection and prejudice.

When african americans learn to unite and do for themselves, then we can go forward. Why are we looking for the caucasion race to take care of us. No we should not. We should have our own businesses and taking care of our communities. We should be responsible for our children's educational progress. We should do for ourselves. End of discussion

All the complaining we are doing. Is not positive nor does it promote progress. Look at the other races that come to this country and make it. The main ingredient they have we don't have is unification. That is why they are successful. Yes were and still experiencing oppression, but we should not allow that to stop us from our goal. If you are not happy with the way things are going? Do you and encourage your own to do for themselves. That is how some of schools got started. If we are looking for the 40acres and a mule. We will never get it. Looking for that is wasting time. We need to do for ourselves. So racism won't be an issue, because we have our own

The reality is that the white Europeans, the white Americans found the Africans of interest enough to relocate them here; to use them for slave labor without pay, to abuse them and to take advantage of them and not allow them to become educated. Then when the institution of slavery was no longer economically feasible or profitable, President Lincoln abolished slavery and African Americans began to become educated. If they found employment it was mostly in a low-wage paying or rather a demeaning type of job, ect. Now do come to the era and times in which we are currently living. An African-American can complete college and meet all the educational requirements, professional training required, ect. for employment or a certain occupation; exactly as a white counterpart. But when they go out and seek employment they are turned down and basically told that they are not good enough. Oh, but, the African-American was good enough for whitey to use without paying him/her in past. Now that you are fully educated ... you just ain't good enough! Think about it! All you racist people got out to the polls and struck down affirmative action on that Proposal II - which is further proof of the evil racist heart. An African-American was good enough to work for nothing in times past but not good enough to work for a salary even when they are totally qualified for the position they have applied for. This is the height, core and crust of racism in our society and plenty of it - discrimination - going on in Grand Rapids all by itself. That's why I'm voting for Barack Obama ... so at least something can be done to address African-American issues and African-Americans can begin to improve their livelihood. There is only one life to live.(dirty, low-down, racist, racism in Grand Rapids, Michigan) Let me hear what you have to say about this.
I have always been Democrat but its people like you who sway me to vote all white. Why do you hate so much? You people are the most racist of all. Why would a bidinizz want to hire a troublemaker?

Most Americans came over on the boat and created a wonderful America. They werent even around when your great, great grandpappy was beaten and kilt 24/7 and then made to wark hart all day too.

Your race card, affirmative action, NAACP, Al, Jesse, your escalade driving, rolex watch wearing, your barbers, and your dont know who the daddy is chillin are all worthless.

We reserved Detroit for you negoroid animal freak type people.

Stop you continual whinning for handouts cuz I be tired of paying your lazy azz way.

Get civil, and contribute to society, or go away!

Nobody gives a shit anymore about you whiny ass blacks bitching and moaning about 'racism'. It's old and worn out much like you people wearing your pants around your knees, your attitudes, etc.

The truth of the matter is we can educate you forever on what really happened in history you're always going to cry racism. It's your meal ticket, your free ride. You blacks claim you don't like racism, yet you use it every chance you get to get out of working, following laws, etc.

In short, we're sick to death of hearing it.

Maybe they wouldn't look at you so funny if you weren't walking around with your jeans below your butt and your skanky boxers hanging out and having to hold your pants up so they don't wind up around your ankles.

Affirmative Action is good... for certain segments of society. What about "White Americans" that fall through the cracks of assisted living and furthering their lives via education = prosperity? 12%-14% of the population wants the same as the other 80% of the population... all is good..., but on a level field, no one deserves more because of their skin color. White America is ever so slowly becoming uneasy with favortism adoring skin color.

Grand Rapids is known as the bastion of the GOP...Immediately after the last State of the Union speech by Bush, he immediately flew to G.R. to meet with the holy Right Wing shadows such as Eric Prince of the infamous Blackwater USA....two months later we were engaged in Shock and Awe... Grand Rapids, the first city in the US to put floride in the drinking water....as relates to racism? Until those of european descent recognize the pathology of internalized superiority there will always be denial of the MAAFA....

Racism is not an issue in Michigan.
Lifestyle is the issue and the endless money that we spend to help those that will not help themselves.

Pull up your pants, turn the hat on your head so it points in the correct direction and quite voting people like Kwame in office. If you can't do that then I suggest a one way ticket back to you wonderful African homeland. Zimbabwe and Darfur are nice this time of year I hear...
Not sure you realize this, but from an outsider perspective, this sounds quite stereotypical and racist. I was looking up "Grand Rapids racism" to see if I want to apply for an internship in this area. But seeing as how many people are ganging up on one person who is speaking out about racism and discontent, I know this place is NOT for me. I hope you all realize how your comments affect others. And I hope you can all find it in you to act in a more loving way towards those who are hurting.

Blacks are a joke.

Listen to those whiny ass deadbeats still bitching about being oppressed.

They got a "black" POTUS, whose a screw up.

We have laws in place to force businesses to hire them based solely on race.

The whole US walks on eggshells because, for some stupid reason, everybody is afraid of being called racist because of these deadbeats.

Businesses and schools have quotas to forcibly make sure these blacks losers get a free education, even though NONE OF THEM want it.

Our country is going broke trying to appease these worthless parasite.

Blacks listen good, all of you are always bitching and moaning about being slaves but you idiots are too ignorant to know you STILL ARE!
If any of you had at least 2 brain cells to rub together, you would know that welfare IS SLAVERY.
But yet, you keep voting for dictators like Obama Bin Lyin and the demoKKKrat party.
This if fine, in africa, but now you messing with my country.

As for kentwood being racist, look what you blacks have done to it. I used to live in kentwood, now it's like a 3rd world shithole thanks to you brown people, the place looks like a war zone.

Downtown GR is the same, and all in the name of 'diversity' from the idiot liberals that are trying to convince the world that you people have some redeeming quality. The word 'diversity' is used so much on TV around here, it should be considered a dirty word now. It's disgusting.

But yet, you blacks never get enough do you?

Got news for you crybabies - LIFE ISN'T FAIR. PERIOD., NOT FOR ANYONE. PERIOD., IF YOU DON'T LIKE YOUR CURRENT SITUATION, DON'T EXPECT EVERYONE ELSE TO FIX IT FOR YOU - THAT'S YOUR JOB!

You blacks can call 'racism' and any other BS you want, it doesn't work anymore. It's lost it's power.

We all know you just want more handouts.

But no, keep screwing up, keep voting demoKKKrat and see how far you get. You got one of you in the highest office in the land, and it still isn't enough.

Well there is no more - that's as good as it gets - I don't know what you people expect from the world?
