I think Black men will be fine. People still need drugs when Depression come. Maybe it'll be a boomtime!

What are you talking about? My post got cutoff. I was saying food, water, clothes and drugs (as in medicine) where I'm from you go to Druggist when you are sick and have prescription.

I'm talking about the basic neccessities of life.

Unlike the last few recessions our current economic mess is liable to hit white collar workers just as bad as it does blue collar workers.

I have no idea about what the current statistics are as far as one race being affected more than another, my point is except for the wealthiest, none of us are immune to taking a serious economic hit in the current crisis, it's effects will be far reaching, and there will be an overall decline in our standard of living as a whole, with the middle class shrinking.

I second that emotion!!

Also you know most of the people posting here are FBI agents and government workers (spies).
I think that's the reason for all the silly topics.
They sure love to keep an eye on Black people; I guess to make sure we remain divided.

It pisses me off too, because they aren't even clever and we keep responding to their silly posts. Which only proves Black people still don't know each other.

my thoughts exactly!

not to mention the fact that jail is still free to attend! and stolen objects are still free! most blacks wont be effected at all!

(i'm sorry to the black people who do not steal or commit crime. this is not directed at you)

As far as this post; I'd have to say NO, Young black men are catching it the worst, Before they know what hit them they are either shot dead on the street by a white elimination squad; But no one pays attention because it's always ruled 'DRUG or GANG RELATED. Is this ever proven?
Let a bunch of Blonde haired blue eyed young white
girls & boys start getting shot dead on the street
walking home from school and see if they just write it off as DRUG or Gang related.
If our rich brothers & sisters don't start to help us out soon; Yes I think Black men are going to have a very hard time surviving the next 20 years.
Also young Black men need to be protected from the
White Prosecuting Preditors who bring them up on trumped up charges that keep them in the CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM for life.
They use us to advance their careers because most of us do not have or can't afford any legal defense.
Oh YEAH, this is some serious shtt.

How many Blacks here are Season Ticket Holders for a Sporting Event like Baseball, football, or Basketball or Hockey?(Anyone)?

How many even attend the games with BOX Seat Tickets?
I see nothing but White Faces in the Box seats on TV.
I wonder why that is?
