Just like the media showed me that all white men are usually child predators,all pratice canibalism, and usually by the age of 15 years old kill their parents. Now what if we thought that way
Yeah many of them do believe that. Because they are too closed-minded to think that all black people are NOT like the ones they see on the news or like idiotic rappers like to portray.

You are correct. Unfortunately, it's a vicious cycle. The high crime is due really to the break up of the black family as well as no jobs or minimum wage jobs in urban areas. White people are NOT responsible for black men being sexually promiscuous and irresponsible. I blame black men because they are supposed to be the leaders in their community. Unfortunately, many are not. Personally, I was raised by two hard working, God-fearing, responsible, loving parents. I had no need to hit the streets for love, respect, or income. My parents provided me and my siblings with all of that. There were many other families like mine where I grew up. Unfortunately, all too often young black men and women lack the direction, love, and discipline that is sorely needed in their life. Does this make sense to you?
Yes, it actually DOES make sense to me. What doesn't make sense to me is that instead of calling out the majority of black folks who live that way (ala Bill Cosby), "responsible" blacks who are/were brought up in a stable environment would rather make excuses for the welfare queens, criminals, and baby daddy's than actually try and change their "community". If you are as you portray yourself here, and Black Momma this goes for you too.... why take so much time and effort defending the ghetto way of life? If we are actually on the same page, why won't you just concede that there is in fact a huge problem with an entitlement mentality, crime,lack of moral fiber etc in a large portion of the black population? It seems that the first reaction of supposed productive, stable black members of society is usually to refuse to acknowledge the massive problems with the majority of thier race. In short, thier "blackness" takes over and won't allow them to "keep it real" so to speak.

<quoted text>Wow, then you must be either impressed, awed, angry or floored over the fact that the youngest person to ever get into college is a 11 year old black American boy, Carson Huey, who will be studying "quantum physics" at TCU this year. He also speaks fluid Mandarin Chinese, which he learned, when he was not playing the piano. And no he is not mixed.
Also, he has surpassed the two previous smartest children in the world, a black brother and sister combination in England.
Life just bites you sometimes doesn't it.
If in fact what you posted is true, then good for him... however it is ridiculous for you to infer that that little tidbit of information somehow overshadows the literally tens of millions of black youths who will not graduate high school and end up on public assistance, incarcerated, or dead. Perhaps if black youths patterned themselves after such a role model as the kid you mentioned instead of gangsters, rappers, drug dealers etc they could begin to reverse the cycle of poverty and crime?

Nothing is absolute. It is asinine to say that "all" people of ANY race are a particular way... but when large segments of the overall population of a particular racial group DO fit the stereotype, well... It is what it is.

Which is funny that you make this silly statement. Nothing is absolute. Moreover, you don't personally know all 40+ million people do you? You don't personally know "large segments of the overall population of a particular racial group" do you?

MLK had a dream and now it as come true
All people are judged by their character and not the color of their skin. It just happens to be that the character of the black is that of a criminal , drug dealer, rapest, killer, mugger, robber, free loader, disrespectful , lazy, ect. Like I said before
MLK would not even stand up for the blacks we have now days 50 years ago blacks tryed hard to prove that they are as good if not better than anyone in American and a lot of blacks died to make this point and looking back it was all for nothing

I don't have to personally know what I can see with my own eyes, do I? When I drive through the ghettos of Buffalo NY, I don't personally know all the people I see, but it's a pretty safe bet that in that case you actually CAN judge a book by the cover. Again your "blackness" prevents you from objectively and truthfully looking at the state of the majority of your racial peers.2550

I agree. MLK would most likely be disgusted with the state of black America today. The lack of any family structure, the rampant black on black crime, the dismal graduation rate etc..... Any black person who voices a negative opinion about such things is automatically an "Uncle Tom" or worse.

Thanks for the link. A LOT of info on that site. It certainly exposes the media double standard when it comes to reporting on black mob violence.

Just a question to you blacks out there: why is it that when you attack, you rarely if ever do it without a distinct advantage in either numbers, size, gender, sucker-punches etc?

Ok, you must have not read what I said a few statements ago. My "blackness" doesn't prevent anything sire lol. But I guess on the other hand your "whatever color you are" COMPELS you to make sweeping generalizations right?

<quoted text>What is funny is this, white people are good at being racist When 1000s of whites riot annually in Hunington Beach, tear up towns for Spring Break and cause million of damage property it is called letting off steam. When millions of whites riot after soccer games, tear up stores, loot, fight, destroy things, it is called not worth reporting. When whites ins Syria become a threat, they are no longer whites. When are bigger enemy for decades is called pure evil, Russia, they are no longer white. When the primary ancesters of white Americans are labeled the most evil group ever to live in the planet, these German Nazis are simply called Nazis. When a country of predominately white people drop the only two A-bombs on women and children, it is called American pride.
So,when large segments of a group do fir the label of evil, then whites as a group must carry that label. Sad, because whites do no like being called racist, although this country has a racist legacy which is bigger than any other cultural legacy. A white person saying this a called a "race traitor'.
HEY. I really like being known as a racist, on the internet because I am a realist.

But being passive with white people does not work take what you want. Even after all that bullshit you were still a shameful reminder of the wrong and treated like crap. You saw all your white friends with summer jobs like at little fast food places. We lived in a real upper class neighborhood so that was out of the question hiring a black kid forget about it.
