Oh, yeah, that's right. Thanks for correcting my racist ways. What was I thinking. Of course, black city residents never ever drink or drug and then get behind the wheel and kill people.
You're assuming there is a wheel to get behind. The burbs have an unfair advantage in that they have a car.

Well, let's equalize that. Why don't you write to Gov Paterson and tell him you city guys want CARS. No doubt he will create a free Car Handouts for the Poor Program for you, with our tax money, of course...

Better yet, get a job so you can buy one yourself. That's how we get them in the burbs.

Yikes, there's no hope for me, is there.

No, you're right, Sister, I wasn't present at the trial watching your boy go free. I was at work, earning money to finance the various public programs that enable you to sit on your butt, collect welfare, and watch your tax-payer-funded big-screen TV.

for the record more whites are on welfare then any other race.
Not if you look at the percentages of the population each group holds and then compare that to the number on welfare.

Hmm...if there were three trials, which none of us were present for, you think just maybe this guy is really innocent? Three trials, not one, three. Just sayin'

Stats can be manipulated in a variety of ways to support any argument. Take population majority of instance. Whites males make up the highest segment of US population (48%), but they are outnumbered by the rest of the population (easy math, but here it is, 52%)...They used to hold over 50% of the population, so they were the majority…Now they are just another minority, albeit a very large one. They are outnumbered by every other segment of the population

Fun with numbers folks.

Also, I'm glad this guy got off. Even if 100 guilty people get off so that one innocent person doesn't go to jail, I'd say that our justice system works.

Everyone is going back and forth and dont really know all the facts. Yes this man was Black yes alot of African American people kill and so do Causian!!! There isn't a culture for killing. Anyone can Kill and anyone can steal. Maybe this man was innocent and if so Then Congrats to him being aquitted...Instead of assuming that he will ''Kill" again lets believe that the courts are good enough to determine whether someone is a killer or not. And in this case they are saying He is Not!!!! SO Live Life Blake!!!

Race shouldn't matter in this case. There are multiple white people charged with murder and robbery, as well as black.
Sue, you need to understand that not only black people are on welfare, there are all different races on welfare and not all black people are recipients of welfare programs. Our court system is based on everyone deserving a fair trial. In this case, he was acquitted of the charges after receiving a fair trial in which the evidence was examined and processed. Just because he was black doesn't mean anything. What about the COP in Greece that killed someone because he was on drugs? What about white families that have been in the news recently after killing their entire family? You shouldn't be so quick to judge if you do not know the facts of the case. The judicial system did it's job and if you don't agree with it, write a letter. Your racist opinion and sarcastic undertones are demeaning and show how ignorant people can be.

Except for the fact that the 52% you reference is comprised of multiple demographics, not just one. No majority there....sorry...wrong!
