Black culture is to blame.
It's either "somebody shoulda done sumthin'" or a sense of entitlement without working for things and always a denail their little angel is guilty and a sense of self pity.
American blacks as a rule will never advance. They've been given countless chances and time and have shown nothing but a lack of character.
In your opinion I guess. Blacks are billionaires, millionaires, lawyers, doctors, engineers, entertainers, policeman/women etc. So what's your point? A century ago things were a lot worse. So I'd have to say that your assertion is lacking to say the least.

I'm not a lover or a hater of black's, I am just calling it like I see it, and, your wrong. I see it, I see it in the young blacks and it will get better for their race. Many are really starting to make the best of opportunities and are motivated, good people, which is more than I can say about a lot of whites. While what you talk about exists, it is not the exception nor the rule, it is a segment, but not nearly all, not even close.

I grew up in a primarily black neighborhood.

I made my own but can tell you the few blacks who find themselves out of a life chock full of self pity only to end up as social parasites and criminals are pretty few.

Add to that most blacks who make it financially feed off their own race by becoming rap producers and the like who push music that illustrates racial hatred, ignorance and the glamorization of crime.

Sorry Bud...no assterion...real life experience.

It's no wonder prisons are full of self pitying blacks.

It's no a racial thing given I myself know real Africans whom have come over to our country bust their ass and many are destined to become great men. Black Americans are nothing more than parasites. I wish we could make doctors out of them but they're not willing to give up self pity and blame for actions they themselves ar reposnsible for.

Fact.

Some do.

But they are a minority within a minority.

One of the greatgest men that lived wa Martin Luther King Jr. and trust me....he'd be highly disappointed.

Self pity for blacks in American is their biggest enemy and they don't get it.

American blacks have no less abilities in either intelligence or just being other humans than do any other race. It's their sad ass culture they generated here and their overall willingness to embrace it that screws them over.

I have seen blacks that fit the bill that you describe. I also see and presently work with black people that are very classy, humble good people who tend to be fun loving but are professionals. I also deal with a clientle of a lot of upper middle class blacks and they are some of the nicest, honest people and are just down to earth, nice people. I really enjoy being around those people, they do have soul, they live to have fun in life, have a positive attitude and just live life. It helps me not be so serious sometimes. Recognize those blacks as well, as they are a good segment of the population. What's wrong with that? Sounds like good people to me. Just saying.

Let me ask you a question? Do you make black people you are aquaintances with, that you feel differently about them because of their race, or do you pretend to be cool with them? You know, a closet racist? Are you really going to tell me you have no association with any black people that would make you ashamed for generalizing about a whole race of people and putting them in that class?

Nothing wrong with it.

I've worked with the same.

Interesting thing....they've also proven to be inherently racist.

I'll bet my life savings every one of them has gone back to the self pity aspect. Every one will identify themselves as "African American" rather than as an American. Every one of them won't see why blacks can make a racist magazine like 'Ebony','Jet', etc. and have a television networl like 'BET' that's designed on racist means yet would scream like a newborn being delivered in a cold delivery room if whites did the same.

Every one would back Affirmative Action if it were to last until the year 3045.

You stupid ass....you apparently HAVEN'T been around blacks. You're either lying or have never left your upper middle class life. I've had the privilage to have seen both and let me tell you - blacks don't want equality. They want to be 'equal'
but separate.

Screw them. I wouldn't hire a black again if my life depeneded on it.

Oh yeah....forgot to tell you. I am an employer and was a landlord. I can give horror stoies galore on my experience with the American black culture friend.

We should pack every God damned ONE of the American blacks up and trade them with blacks from Africa given those men and women are good people as a rule and whom AREN'T full of some lost sense of self pity.

You are entitled to your opinion. Again, I have seen many of the black people that you describe and it does exist, but you are wrong to label the whole race. We have all kinds of screw ups and twisted up people in the white race, do you blame it on them being white or maybe do you blame it on bad parental raising, mental illness, drug/alcohol addiction, etc? Just wondering. So do you hate my a$$ because of that nut in Connecticut? We are both white, so I guess you should blame me for that?

Fact.
I do agree that some blacks are parasites. However, what about Oprah Winfrey? She is probably one of the most powerful women in America. She is worth approximately 2 billion dollars. Her fortune was not made peddling beats or glamorizing violence. She is an accomplished businesswoman. John Johnson who founded BET and I believe Jet magazine was a billionaire too. When you speak about rap, most rappers don't make their fortune screaming expletives and denigrating women. Jay-Z, worth about 450 million, co-founded his own record label and his own clothing line.(Businesses.) Diddy, worth about 550 million, did the same thing. He also sells liquor as well. I could go on and on. Most rhyme slingers don't make hundreds of millions of dollars just rapping. These black people, like Donald Trump, or Forbes, or Bill Gates, had a good instinct for business. But I guess they don't feed off of people either and exploit poor people in other countries by having their garments made in sweatshops. Right? Now don't get me wrong, I hate a lot of contemporary rap music. It is filth epitomized. My point is that I can't knock their business sense. Most of us here on Topix could never even dream the life they live. And while some of you hate them because they're black, they just keep getting money and making millions while you sit at home maybe 2 to 3 paychecks away from homelessness.

Well I'm sorry that you've experienced the things you have. I know that my people can be pretty racist. They are racist to me as well. I abhor it. I'm well aware of the double standards as well. What I don't understand is why you refer to Ebony, Jet, and BET as "racist?" Is there not plenty of W.E.T.? BBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Bloomberg, People magazine, Fox News Channel, Fortune, GQ, Forbes, Businessweek, and Time magazine. Do you catch my drift? I'm really not trying to downplay what you're saying at all just that it's unfair. I would love to go into more detail if you like.

If you had an IQ above 50 you'd have noticed I focused on black Americans and not to black race idiot.

In fact I'd LOVE to ship every God damned ONE of our self pitying little "African Americans" to Uganda as a swap for Africans given they don't exhibit the 'po me' culture our American blacks illustrate. They appreciate what our country is and WORK for a living rather than act like they just came out of 1865.

So no dumbfuck....it's a cultural thing. Unique to probably 97.52% of the blacks that roam the streets in the U.S.

All you've managed to tell me is you've never actually lived with these pathetic individuals friend.

No you're not.

And if whites had a 'White Entertainment Television what do you think would happen you stupid moronic hypocrite???

We'd be called racist and rightfully so. We don't need race specific magazines, newspaper or television in a country which is supposed to be color blind.

American blacks are more racist than an annual barbeque get together for the Aryan Nations.

ABC, NBC nor any other network is basing it's namesake and subject matter on racial themes you absolute DUMBFUCK.-You get my drift?

You are completely wrong. I have lived with them. I am certain to agree that a good chunk of black people are bad people but I am also certain that a good chunk are good people, some are the best people around period. I work in an area where there are upper middle class black people. They are the least ignorant, most pleasant people for the most part of all of our clientele. The black employees I work with are good people. I don't think the topic of race has come up once about anything and everyone gets along for the most part. So they treat me well and with respect but I guess you just expect me to hate them because they are black. I already stated I am about good and bad, not black and white. I assure you that I am proud and white, but everyone is entitled to be proud of what they are, not just whites. Who cares?

Funny isn't it.

That probably 2% of American blacks are worth anything yet the rest of them want to claim they're the same when in fact 98% of Amercian blacks are nothing more than self pitying losers.

The probablem with American black culture is;

1) They STILL think they live in 1925 and purposely forget the countless whites that tried to help them.

2) They won't give up this notion they're owed something.

3) We are ALL born as individuals and have to make our way in the world yet they use the fact they're black as an excuse for every shortcoming they have to blame "whitey".

4) They're full of more self pity than a 9 year old spoiled girl thinking she didn't get the horse she wanted for Christmas because her parents gave her a dollhouse instead because she claims they don't love her.

Kfart is about as White as Kingfish esq, Shyteak, and his beyotch Tarbaby. Of course Kfart could be some kind of kosher spy for the $PLC, ADL, or some other Jewish supremacist hate group. Yep, Kfart is either a White anti-racist aka anti-White self hater or a anti-White, anti-Gentile, anti-Western culture Jewish supremacist. If Kfart is Black, he is the Whitest Black man I've ever heard in all my years on this earth.

Damn and who the hell is this "warriorisgay" troll? Dude or dudette, or you serious that naive when it comes to Africans N America? If I were king for a day I would take all the ignorant LIEberal libtards like yourself and throw them in an inner city ghetto to live among all those "humble" Blacks you adore so much. You remind me of that White girl who biked from San Francisco to New Orleans to campaign for Obongo back in 2008. This naive and sheltered young girl went to a Black neighborhood in "Chocolate City" aka New Orleans only to be shot in the head multiple times and be left for dead lying in the streets while Black pedestrians just passed by her dead body. Some White group that was down in New Orleans still cleaning up after Katrina FINALLY called the authorities to report the homicide.

Good points. I see where this is going and I could debate with you for hours on this. By the way, my comment about income was not directed at you. Clearly, you've attained a measure of financial success. I don't envy you at all. Don't flatter yourself. Moreover, since you wanna ship us wretched "African Americans" to Uganda, I think you should ship out too since your ancestors forcibly stole this land from red-skinned Natives. Sound like a plan sweetheart?
