However if you look into the families there is so much love and so many timid people that fear for all this fighting. So many against the violence. Martin Luther King was not the only humble black man. There are many that wouldnt hurt a fly yet lose the battle to police abuse for mistaken identity or just becuase of a racist officer. You just really dont know the abuse and I cant shed tears for you becuase I cry so much for myself of what happens to the african american lives I cant cry enough myself never mind for you. My heart bleeds in pain that there are still people out there that dont see why our black youth react the way they do sometimes. You just wont let the pain go away you constantly stab the black race in the back everytime they turn around even when they want to to good. Why???? Some of the sweetest people I have ever met that give me so much pride and joy to live comes from my black people. We never give up. Strong and proud and you cant take that from us. You can take our lives and cuase us pain but you will never take our strength and pride that we will not give up and just let you mistreat us. Im not even black but I wish I were becuase you white people are an embarresment to the human race. You are the only race that just wipes out another for self greed.
You stupid white trash! Please do consider yourself black and join in the black race. Live with them. Sleep with them. Get real involved with them. Why don't you get involved with Bell and his family. Get criminal with them. Go to jail with them. Even blacks are smart enough to know white scum when they taste it! The space you fill on this earth is wasted. Blacks don't want you either!

Belle....why are you twisting all my comments. I'm not blaming anybody for anything. I'm just trying to give you a different way of looking at the truth. The white man killed millions of Jews doing the holocaust. Oh I guess you don't consider Jews white people??????
The white man Hung thousands and thousands of blacks doing slavery.
My point is....Minorities aren't the only ones doing the killing. But we're not suppose to remember the past. It's 2009. Black folks are still living in the past. We should get over it.
The past and your upbringing is the reason you think the way you do today. Everyone is a product of there environment.
I prefer vodka and crane myself....lol
I have the perfect solution to this problem! Let's take every black in America who is not happy, send them to Africa, and send an African back to America and give them all of the benefits that Black Americans have here. This would be the most blessed event of our time. Can you only imagine what it would be like for those people!
Let's do it! Keep those beers comin.....

African-Americans think they have it bad here. But talk about going back to Africa and they run for the welfare checks! True Africans would be so appreciative to come here. I think we should make a trade. Anyone who does not like America should leave. Like the rich who are moving away to New Zealand and Switzerland. When the rich all go, the black crybabies will turn on themselves like Katrina!!!

The blacks, mexicans, and aliens of the USA are about to see history made with the white race putting a foot down on Obama's spending. Perhaps Obama can send blacks to China. The Chinese will whip the blacks into shape. Whites are taking America back, the country we pay the bills for. If all whites leave America, the blacks and all others are dead. These races feed off of whites, yet are too stupid to realize everything is coming to an end. I look forward to the rest of Obama's presidency. I can't wait to see the shit hit the fan.
