What is really comical is that no matter how many laws and politically correct liberals gush and rave about having "black friends" ad nauseum, blacks will not forget or forgive and white people will not "like" them. human nature and cultural differences will always come into the mix, some mix and get along and some spend their time ignorant and scheming with hate and innuendos of lazy and ignorance. Granted "ghetto" is not a productive way to enrich and help make the next generation rise to a higher level of societal acceptance but it will come as the younger people age. 2050 or so, then the "whites" will be a minority.

I should guess a lot of white people are offended by the comments of so many hateful blacks that can finally afford a computer.

All I know is if the North wanted the blacks we would have loaned them some for awhile.

As it is now,they wish they could send them back.

So in the end,both sides lost and THEY won.

"As America
became more urbanized, crime rose steadily, with only a few noteworthy increases or
decreases in the national homicide rate. In response to the rise in violent crime, the U.S.
spent more money on law enforcement in the 1840s than almost any other country in
the world.i Despite this increase in funding, these systems were unable to curb the
steady rise in violence that continued until the late 1930s."
