And you would go along way by educating your ignorant white self!
So if someone (a black man) is on welfare, say receiving $500 monthly, how do you think he is able to purchase an expensive car with expensive rims huh?
When he goes to buy a new car what do you think he puts down as his employer: welfare? Or in your mind I guess he pays several thousand dollars out of his pocket cash?
People on welfare are not driving around in expensive new cars with shinny new rims. Most don't even have cars.
Get real.
And I suppose there are no fat welfare queens either. Where have you been and why are you so blind to whats going on around you.

Drugs is a cash business. He does not need a loan. He just needs a bunch of crackheads to give him money for his poison. The $500/month he gets on top of his proceeds from drugs or holding up the 7-11 is all gravy.

People have so much to say, but what are you doing to help change your communities. How bout you get real. Are you volunteering, are you donating to organizations, and when i say donate i'm not talking money. There are plenty organizations that need clothes for women who aren't as fortunate to buy that pricey suit in macey's for an interview, children who don't have new sneakers for school, or even a winter coat. So before you point the finger look at the three fingers that are pointing back at you. If there isn't programs to help these young women and young men, then their gonna get what they need by any mean necessary!

Pleeease "get what they need by any means necessary"? They dont have sneakers or clothes for school or interviews? Have you been to a thrift shop? I have, and have donated alot of items also. Clothes are extreeeemly reasonable there, if you not looking for that $200 pair of sneakers to wear to school. I've worked with a man in the past who wore suits to work everyday and would regulary donte them. There is a big difference between what someone "wants" and "needs" Oh, there are plenty of programs out there....but people have to take the initiative. If "any means necessary" is illegal---they'll get what they deserve and we'll probably read about them in the paper.

<quoted text>"You Blacks" keep trying to side step the problems. He probably stole it. Where do you think? You think people who are shooting people could ever pass an official background check? Do you think the type of individuals who deal drugs, mug and shoot people could be helped with a community center. You are the one out of touch. These people emmulate who they want to be like. They think quick money, guns and drugs (thug lifestyle) will give them respect. Respect is not given, it is earned.
This Black doesn't side step anything, what exactly is the problem as you see it other than the roots which are:

In america White Males are paid more than 30% the wages of a Minority given the same education, that Minority Males unemployment rates is 10.3% while those of the White Male is less than 6%, Given education across american society, White dominated schools funded from the say public funds are 700 times more likely to have sufficient equipment and materials, while those schools in minority dominated areas are twice as likely to be under funded with supplies and materials including computers. Socially, White Males are 10 times more likely to receive alternate sentencing (no jail terms) relative to the same infraction than Minorities who are routinely given jail terms for non violent infractions.

Given that working and being paid less for the same job, passed over more frequently for openings, and jailed for non violent offenses I would call that a warped sense of respect for black males in american society. This isn't a new trend this is a trend that's present today, which has followed black males since the signing of the civil rights laws of 1868 guranting equal protection to all citizens of the U.N. States. Not being given a fair chance at basic opportunity in a free society would bring about frustration for any man. We aren't going to talk about the economic impact these lawless policies brought about, nor the social implications brought about by exclusion from public facilities like schools and hospitals. Some how the lawlessness demonstrated in excluding minorities economically and socially, legally in some places and supported by state governments up until the 1970s is seen as less violent than the senseless shootings in the black community.

How is the denial of basic human rights to a segment of people in denying citizens fair chance and opportunity to education, medical and public services for economical advantage any less crimical than violently shooting them in the head? One kills faster is the only diffrence, but both has consequences to the surrounding community.

I bet he got his gun from a good community centre set up by HG.

If HG would got off his arse and pity party, he would realize a victim is a victim regardless of colour.

Better yet, HG can round them (thugs of color) up, give them a place to stay, and in a week or so, HG will be on crack. Still whining.

Sorry there HG you are getting on my last nerve concerning the PAST. Get over it or get some serious family therapy as to why "oppression" is part of your mental & daily life. You sound like a King Pin rather than a lucid, rational person.

Economic revolution is the avenue to change and respect. A lot of young and old blacks are going to have to come with a diffrent mindset. America doesn't want to loose Blacks as a consumer group. However, should their mindset change instead of putting on, putting into themselves knowledge and understanding and filtering information wisely, materials as values will disappear and those trinkets will become meaningless as status symbols to seeking respect. Right now in prodominately black communitys the lights, and colors and shiney objects resemble a circus under a big top tent. That is a result of relying on education from this same system that pushed you to the margins and disregarded basic human rights to your parents and their parents before them. Where are the actual numbers that suggest life in America for Blacks is any better marginally than in 1964? Income has gone up because more women are in the work place, but by in large the condition relative to laging behind White Males for not only Black but all Minority males is exactly what it was during the CRA. Get in and stop trying to fit in. Help yourself and get the real message out. Education and participation has to come before donations.

Hey dummy the thug more than likely got the gun from some Black on welfare driving a Cadillac. Why don't you get your black buddies and build a community center? Waiting for the white tax dollars to front the money for the blacks?

So because most guns are black they are made by blacks? Very certain the gun was made by a White Owned firm, shipped by a white owned firm and initially show cased by a white owned firm. Straw sold by a white owned firm.

Usually the only black firms that make money off of guns in America are the Black Undertakers.... These idiots are to dumb to realize that. Here in america tax dollars are multicultural. Judging from your posts, you don't pay that much money in taxes.

"If this is a class-ridden society denying "access" to upward mobility to those at the bottom, why is it that immigrants can come here at the bottom and then rise to the top?
.
One obvious reason is that many poor immigrants come here with very different ambitions and values from that of poor Americans born into our welfare state and imbued with notions growing out of attitudes of dependency and resentments of other people's success."

Yeah and cars are made by white owned companies. Blacks steal alot of those also. Same as guns. I know you don't think these thugs are buying these weapons at gun stores. So your view is "the crime is because a white man made the product?" I wonder why blacks are not more intelligent. Whites manufacture text books also. I don't see alot of the brothers walking around with those under their arms. Take responsibility for your actions. Teach your young black kids responsibility. 13% of the population and 70% of the crime. Diversity isn't it wonderful?
