I do not feel that my race is superior to any race which is racism by definition. However, I have noticed that the majority of criminal activity is by black people, just an honest observation. I have also read articles about the prison overpopulation and how the majority of inmates are black males. I think they try to blame it on racism yet I think that black males have swallowed the indoctrination of media on what it means to be black. For example, how to act, talk, dress, act and what to buy.

I think the reason for higher crime rate statistics from blacks stems from their environment, upbringing, social and media influences. For example, the media sells and indoctrinates the "thug life" image and lifestyle to young black males. The music industry and the gangster rap genre influences black males that it is "cool" to be a thug/criminal.

The whole gangster rap/thug life scene teaches that it is cool to steal, rob and be a gang banger. It also preaches that one's prison time and tats are a badge of honor among their "homies". As for me, when I see people flashing pseudo-gang signs to portray themselves as tough or a bad boy I wonder if they know what they are representing. Since when did it become "cool" to be a criminal? I think if black people want to earn more respect then they should despise this whole "its cool to be a thug" indoctrination. I think any self-respecting black man should hate this crap the music industry is feeding them and their children. The results are running around in your neighborhood in the form of "domestic terrorists".

Also, I have noticed that some BET programming and Comedy Central black programming still promotes racism towards whites. I still here black comedians joking about how the white man is still prejudiced towards them. I think this type of comedy is digging at old wounds and exacerbating racial tensions.

On the topic of upbringing, I think the older black generation is teaching the youth their prejudices and resentments towards white people.

And if some disagree that racism against whites doesn't exist then when a black male is singled out and abused by cops then why do they riot. Why do these groups of angry black rioters lash out at ALL whites. Not all whites are racist and that shouldn't be an excuse for them to take their anger out on all whites.

I wasn't raised to hate black people yet I have noticed that when I moved to Lexington blacks were VERY racist in this town. I had one black guy at a store smart off to me and tell me he hated white people. I have heard many other stories that are similar to this about black people in Lexington.

i applaud and agree with most of your post,

but i disagree they are just being influenced by media or other whatever;

everything one does is a choice,
including what culture they want to be a part of,
what values they want to have,
whether they choose to seek God or not,
etc.

blacks aren't choosing to seek God, period, that's their root problem and they make it look as if they will never repent, which is their tough sht but it is infact damn sad. Pastor Manning i can tell is literally heartbroken over it, and i'm sad for him. he cares about them a lot more than i do, i say they can RACE right to hell for all i care; that man though really wishes they'd repent. i don't believe they will.

but people like me and Pastor Manning will continue to warn them.

Lot left sodom. his wife left but looked back. and everyone else in sodom stayed. that's where blacks are in the world today, and it's their own damn fault and own tough sht.

in Revelation even after many of the tribulations, many still refused to repent. looks to me like this is where blacks will be in the end times, which may be where we're headed as i type this.

true story:
i was at a large company of yuppie/office workers
during lunch hour approximately,
in a very large cafeteria,
about 150 people in the lunchroom.
all of us were glued to the large TV at one end of the room,

it was reading off the verdict in the OJ trial.

not guilty.

i quickly heard a group of cheers, i couldn't believe it!

i looked and saw it was one table of about 20 black yuppies male and female all dressed up in suits and ties that had gathered (segregated) themselves at one table - they normally would sit and eat with their department/coworkers.

i hadn't noticed this self-segregated table prior to the cheers.

this company required a 4yr degree, these were high paid professionals aged 25 to 45, in lexington ky.

but they cheered the OJ acquittal.

they were all black.

life is about choices,
these are the choices they make.

repent,
or don't,
you'll reap the results in the afterlife,
you have been warned.
