can we talk like adults here please?
Based on the garbage that comes out of your mouth the answer would be "no".

"Sensered", huh. Your comprehension of English is closer to that of a 5th grader than that of an adult.

There could be only two reasons for this.
1 Not that many Americans of darker skin color are applying.

2 The majority of those who do, don't pass the test.

If people are too stupid to pass the test it shouldn't matter what color they are; they should be totally embarrassed by the fact that they couldn't pass the test! And not use the lame excuse of race or ethnicity in order to garner a job that, once they were hired, they (and the person(s) who hired them) would quickly find out they were too stupid to keep it.

the fastest way blacks can get jobs in hablabury is to drive the illegals out of town. Local employers clearly prefer illegal alien labor over black labor. So sweeping out the illegals will really lift the black community!

<quoted text>it seems in Bethel its somewhat true, so many white kids get involved in crime (by so many i mean they are more likely than black kids) due to where they often grow up like the trailer park etc, but also due to this 'trailer park culture' thing that is sort of subconciously pushed on us, the whole traiker park inbreeding and drugs and guns style thing that we see in media alot. perhaps alot of young white kids either feel this is what they should become or its all they can become. to be fair alot of this is the media but still alot of blame lies with the older white trash generations who perpetuate this stereotype.
of course this is some not all, the problem is a few people shouting loud make more noise than alot whispering, so the few bad examples get alot more coverage than the many decent people.
just my 2 cents for what its worth

<quoted text>A number of observers of Inbreeds have commented that their behavior is “child-like”– that they are similar to children.
The inability to defer gratification leads to renting instead of saving and buying, theft rather than working and waiting, and rape and inbreeding instead of courting and seduction.
The ability to plan ahead and defer gratification is critical to creating and maintaining a civilization, where the rights of others must be respected even if it means not getting something immediately.
you have proved this point

Having a father who is also your brother can lower the age of puberty by 3 months, perhaps due to the inbreeding whites, but the onset of puberty in the trailer park is not affected by the presence or absence of a father, possibly because the presence of fathers who is also your brother is common with the white trash.

Hiring of African-American lags…
I've heard and used many, many derogatory racial and ethnic and religious terms in my times, but... what's a "lag"?

First of all they're Americans, not African-Americans. They're African DESCENDANTS unless they were actually born in Africa. Why can't people get that straight? If my nationality is German and I was born in the U.S.A. I'm an American - not German-American. Whatever the case, if the blacks can't pass the tests it's pretty simple...they don't get the job! You don't go screaming to people you didn't get hired due to your skin color. God that's so OLD!
Stay in school, open a book, study as hard as you can and maybe you'll pass the tests. That's what life is about when you want to get somewhere. So many blacks think the world owes them a living. For what? They haven't done anything!! Selling drugs and making babies wid yo baby's mama doesn't count.
