For instance, if a "black male encounters a police officer he is more likely to go to jail than their white counterparts," Daniels said. How does Lt. Daniels quantify this statement? What facts or statistics is he using??? I think the public deserves an answer with factual information not opinions..

I'm a black male and grew up in the projects. I didn't know either of my parents, nor have I ever met them. We can't use excuses or blame the white man. I saw where my life was headed and I joined the military to escape the projects. It was the best move for me. We make our own breaks in this world. Don't blame other races for your own failures, get your act together and work hard. I didn't blame the cops for arresting me, I blamed me for breaking the law.

Maybe if they stopped portraying black men on coke and having kids on welfare like on BET then maybe white people wouldn't be scared by us?
Maybe white people wouldn't see us on the media acting like bigots apes and they are being brainwashed.
Stop people like 50 cent and Lil wayne.

This is ridiculous! Black, white, yellow, green. Just one more excuse for black males to come up with because they don't choose to look for a job or take responsibility for their Shorty's!
