Oooh...sounds like I hit a nerve. The truth does hurt doesn't it Tyrone. You know, you can't keep pulling that race card every time you or your race gets upset. It's like the kid who cried wolf. It's not helping your cause at all and people are just not going to listen anymore to your whining. There's no prejudice in what I say since it's all facts, no personal feelings. So deal with the facts Tyrone, accept responsibility for your actions instead of blaming it all on us whiteys, and change your ways.
Oh, and one more thing.......please buy some pants that fit!

I agree that our community has a lot of problems that need to be addressed, but I'm tired of people like "mydickisshort" making judgements because of the color of my skin. He doesn't even know me but assumes that my pants are down and my hat is backwards because I'm black.
Way to place the blame where it DOESN'T belong. But if you're not part of the SOLUTION, you're part of the problem. When more of your people are embracing the thug culture than rejecting it, that's a societal problem and needs to be dealt with. Are you mentoring younger black men to help them become better citizens? Or is that someone else's "problem"? I know plenty of decent black people and am proud to call them my friends, but when other black people (and hispanics) show more prejudice against whites then was EVER shown against them, how are we supposed to react? Slavery hasn't been an issue for two hundred years, now, but still black people blame white people for their circumstances. It has NOTHING to do with COLOR and EVERYTHING to do with PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

good for you tyrone. since you have observed what I have written in the past then you know that I was raised to treat people like they treat you. skin color has never been an issue with me since I come from a diverse neighborhood as a child. it's just the way my family is. it does frustrate me though that since I have worked the last 40 years straight that others can't do this also, and stop whining. I have heard "brother can't get a break" all my life and at times it was true. however NOW we have a black president if this does set a tone in the right direction I don't know what will.
it frustrates me to see the al Sharpton's of this world still beating the race drum and it is all for HIS OWN profit. this is 2013 not 1963 and times have changed yet for some it is still used as a crutch. I am guilty of having a puff or two now-a -days. those old 70's habits don't die at times, yet it has never stopped me from going to work 5 days a week, week in and week out. seeing people shoot themselves in the foot daily and then moaning how unfair even if they are wrong is tiring. YOU need to preach the word of your story to others and continue your success.
in all fairness, more white folks collect entitlements than black and they also need to get off the gov't dime. if it's good enough for me and you it's good enough for them.

I don't think anything about mixing blacks and whites when I was 11 years old and entering 6th grade. My parents didn't either as I had the option to go to private school, but opted to go to school with the rest of my friends from elementary school . It wasn't until I experienced my three years of middle school that I derived my opinion on the wisdom of bureaucrats forcing the bussing of kids in my neighborhood.

Ignore these facts at your own peril. As long as your politically correct ego is satisfied.I suppose all is well until you become a target or victim and learn from your mistakes.

No, there's no prejudice in judging a whole race by the actions of others, or their color. The last line is very funny, I get it. I'm black, therefore in your narrow little mind I must wear pants that are too big and hang halfway down my backside. That's just one of your facts, nothing personal, right? It's always nice to see someone like you, who thinks that all us are ignorant, lazy slobs, prove that you are still dumber than we are.

Perhaps I would feel differently if I saw them doing something . I even settle for just one black person ,with a high profile who isn't afraid to call out others blacks people for their destructive behaviors (I thought this might have been obama but like most everything else he has done he has disappointed ).I would like to see someone prominent from the black community rise up and tell people like jesse jackson and al sharpton to step off because they are harming the black community by encouraging mediocrity and laying blame instead of taking responsibility. This will never happen because whoever says that would be ostracized from the black community ,as this individual would be seen as a thread to their way of life (babies , food stamps, section 8, not working, etc.)

I'd like you to memorize this, Tyrone and seriously think about it.
"Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice".
Maybe Sharpton and Jackson should preach THIS to your people instead of mouthing excuses all the time.

There you go again tyrone bringing up the color of your skin. I don't care if your skin is green, blue or whatever color you prefer. I'm talking about a RACE of people that are an issue in this Country and just so happen to have dark skin.
I haven't seen too many Jewish, Irish, Italian, German, Chinese or any other nationality of people that seem to hog the 6 O'clock news, have you? Guess what? I don't recall any!
It has nothing to do with ignorance or being prejudice. Just facts Tyrone.

There are in fact blacks out there who really do call out other blacks for their actions. Bill Cosby is one example. A lot of the fault lies with who the press decides to report on. Remember, the liberal press only wants to report on the 'victim' narrative.

Sunny Day, you should acknowledge that there are good blacks out there. That way you wouldn't lose people like Tyrone in your attempts to persuade. There are a lot of good black people out there, but there are many who are trapped in the generational cycle of poverty, bad parenting, and bad schools. That fault lays largely with democrats, who have managed to destroy the lives of many hispanics too, as well as many whites. Look at all the trailer trash living on public assistance in places like Tn or Ky.

You ought to say to the Tyrones of the world, this: you express yourself well in your posts, and if you are self-made and living basically clean, then I give you credit. Tyrone is simply asking to be judged as an individual, not as a member of a race. Give him credit for who he is- he's not another charity case.

Thanks, you understand. Lifeisshort's narrow vision of things and lack of mental capacity leave him unable to do the same.

I have no interest in having Sharpton or Jackson preach to or represent "my people". I'm sure most white people feel the same about you.
