I can see why they're driven to commit crime.
You are too funny!! Actually the white man does to much for them. Stop with all the freebies and let them take care of themselves. Yeah right!

I love to pilot my 38 foot Cabin Cruiser past LaSalle Park on a hot summer day, or drive my German-made convertible down Main Street. The poor and disadvantaged stare in amazement at the trappings of my success. To be white and wealthy in America...

Some deserving kid was denied a place in the freshman class at Niagara so this clown could play B-ball. Look how he turned out. No more admitting idiots on athletic scholarships.

So true! Unless society gets its priorities in order (academics first, athletics second - and not a close second) this will continue. You've got barely literate individuals getting into these schools when they should be re-enrolling in fifth grade classes. That's not college material folks.

What a shame Rydell Brooks has ruined a promising basketball career to play gangsta. The question to be asked is, is it nature or nurture that has ruined his life? I am a classmate of Rydell's from Niagara, I have watched many of his games and was always so excited to see him play, he could have been great.
