tired of it all..your post works both ways. i returned from the deep south recently and while there i had the opportunity to be hated as a "GREAT WHITE SATAN" by youngsters i had never met just because of the color of MY skin. there are those who deem me a slaveowner just because i am an older man in the southern states. bigotry is clearly a problem but its something you probably will never end till you walk through the doors of a southern church and find the one place we are all (sinners) EQUAL.

first i dont disagree with what is being said ... yet not all black people are that way and ignorance comes in every race , color and creed!!! stand up or sit down: dont just attack and adress us. you should be attacking everyone!!! the black people, the hispanics, the whites.. ect.. every ignorant person out there. and thoes who think that only black people sell drugs... i went to school in a white area and a lot of white kids sold drugs, hell i know two muslim kids who sell so much pot it isnt funny. attack the action not the people.

Jaz25, my post was not intended for people who work and have respect for themselves.

Also, if you look through some of my other postings, I also commented on other races even my own.

The point that I am making is that some people in every race give the whole race a bad name.

From your posts, you seem intelligent. I also noticed that you seem to have a good head on your shoulders. If this is true then other black people should look up to you. Many will say that you "sold out" though.. just because you are trying to make a decent life for yourself.

There are problems in every race. However it seems to be a huge issue with some black people that they blame their downfalls on their skin color. Why? Your life is what you make it and what you do with it.

Everyone experiences prejudice, rejection and bad luck in their lives. It doesn't just happen to black people.

Fat people get picked on, they don't get some jobs that they want because of their weight. Ugly people get the same treatment. People who are good looking may also get turned down for jobs due to the hiring person is jealous or assumes things about them. Poor people get rejected for many things. Rich people get picked on and many assumptions are made towards them. Muslims deal with a lot of prejudice as do Christians, Jewish, Mormons etc. Disabled people get picked on and can only do certain jobs.

Bill Cosby says it best. He is black and addresses his own race on their attitudes etc.

We ALL have issues that we need to deal with. To get mad at constructive criticism only goes to show that one is not willing to improve.

So just what is the point of your post? You're offering "Constructive Criticism" to people who'll probably never see it, and would probobly tell you to go to hell if they stumbled accross it.

The problem is the blacks who want respect, yet have never done anything to earn it. They give their kids names even they can't spell and then wonder why the kids can't get a job. They dress (half-dress) like street urchins and can't understand why no one will hire them. They are born in this country and can't speak the language properly so they invent a name for the dribble they speak.
The Government that they claim is run by Whitey gives them everything possible to better themselves yet they are too lazy, and stupid to take advantage of it. They would rather live and act live primates than become productive members of society.
Its easier to continue to blame the whites for all their problems than step up and take care of themselves.
If you're black and feel that you are owed something because of your skin color or because a long time ago a relative you never knew was a slave you are greatly mistaken. Save your money and leave. Go back to the county which you think you can from and see how long you last. The people of Africa are waiting for their long lost brothers and sisters to return to share the good life.
Go ahead and pack your crap, say your good byes and hit the road.
EXCELLENT POST!

No, people with opinions such as yours is the real issue.

America belongs to all Americans-black, brown, yellow, red, and white. Just because a person doesn't look, act, speak or dress just like you, doesn't mean that they are less than you. You don't set the standard.

"Long Time Utican" you should be ashamed of yourself for agreeing with such an ignorant comment, but I can understand why because of your age.

"Face Book" - you need to do an "about-face", and go back where you came from with your nonsense.

"you people are the ones who are always bringing up race and racism. Nobody is trying to win your approval, or bring themselves "up" to your level. You need to stop being in denial and realize that there are a whole lot of white people who hate Blacks just because their Black."
WOW!!!!! You have GOT to be kidding on this one. White people are the ones who are always bringing up race and racism????? Listen to any of the rants and ravings of Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and many, many others who complain and whine, and you will hear that the problems being faced by the black people today are caused by white people. THE PROBLEMS BLACK PEOPLE ALWAYS CRY ABOUT, ARE AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE. There are no other complaints. It's always about white people keeping them down. I know many fine black people who are not like this. But there are many who ride this slavery thing into the ground, and are blaming all their problems on what their ancestors went through a long time ago. Like what was said in an earlier post, you don't see the Jewish community doing these things. The past is the past, let it go. There are so many other things for this world to worry about than what happened to blacks before our time. Those who bear scars from intolerance, should be the last to practice it.

The blacks make up 12% of the population, hispanics 4% now look at the crime rate with them it HUGE way out of control yes white people commit crimes also but the not close to the other to look at the local news. The problem is the don't have jobs or want a job

Growing up I hung around with a black male a few years older than me. He was a great guy. Respectful, well spoken, educated, and could make/fabricate/build just about anything. He didnt talk with street slang. He didnt call me a cracker. He didnt wear his pants half off his a$$. He was very inspirational and a good friend that I highly respected.
This past December, the day after Christmas I went to the mall to return of few things. As you may expect it was packed. There was a nonstop trail of cars waiting to find a parking spot. I was the third car in a line of which someone was getting into their car to leave. The car at the front of this group of three put their directional on notifying everyone that they were going to park in this spot once the car pulled out. Out of nowhere a black male walked to where the car was pulling out and stood in the empty parking spot not letting the guy that was waiting pull in. He would not move and started shouting profanities to the driver that was waiting for the spot. We all sat there for roughy 10 minutes while this guy's vehicle finally showed up to park. So tell me what made this guy feel so special that he could cut in front of everyone else that had been waiting and hold that spot and then stand there swearing and screaming like an animal. And then blacks wonder why so many others have a bad image of them. He's lucky I wasnt that car waiting. He would have been kissing my oil pan.
