Most Blacks have no life Insurance most buy it on time..Seriously it's like a buy here pay here..

The other reason if it's a White Funeral Home they have to wait for the check to clear..

I am so happy they're celebrating without the guest of "HONOR".He is rotting in hell!!

What is wrong with the truth??? You can run from the truth but you can't hide.Most folks of color have no health insurance let alone Life Insurance unless they are getting it free deal with the truth.

There's nothing wrong with the truth, except that you don't seem to know what it is:
"According to the Life Insurance and Market Research Association, though only 59 percent of U.S. adults have life insurance policies, 76 percent of black Americans had some form of life insurance. Researchers theorized that economic hardship made life insurance less of a priority for many American families, and it is interesting that blacks maintained a high level of subscription despite metrics that indicate they suffered more than other ethnic and racial groups as a result of the recession.

Black Americans, who life insurance companies had taken advantage of in the past, value the coverage for a number of reasons.

"In the past, the emphasis was on burial," said Grace Robinson, a Pittsburgh insurance agent who's black. "But now the focus should also be on wealth building and creating an estate for our children as we pass."

Though the rate of life insurance policy holders remains low, the number of people who receive life insurance benefits continues to increase, rising to 56 percent in 2010 from 48 percent in 2004, according to the Insurance Information Institute."
Truth is not "whatever bigoted nonsense you happen to believe in".

The truth is only 36% have life insurance and the reason the MOMS of these thugs know that odds are their little knuckle draggers will be killed by their own so maybe more have life insurance damn that is a no brainer.By the time their thugs are 12-19 they will be collecting the big bucks.
Makes sense in that aspect.

Check with a knee grow or call a funeral home most pay on time like above poster explained.
Btw,the MOMS trades food-stamps for cash to keep the thug insured.

I suppose we can either believe you, or believe the Life Insurance and Market Research Association.

Aside from that, it's interesting that you would choose to flaunt your contempt for other people in the heartless manner that you do -- and yet, you're still too much of a coward to spell out the pejorative. Really, who're you kidding?

Only the black community would celebrate a known criminal. Such a wonderful culture they have there.
