So... Whats your point? Are you suggestion taking action against a particular race or that all blacks are the problem? So if this was an article about corporate crimes in big cities and I responded by saying "its all caused by white people... Surprise surprise. Funny how some news papers don't mention that" What would you say to me? Regardless if you are white or not, my hypothetical response would be irrational, inadequate, and borderline racist just as yours. If you were striving to achieve those 3 things you definitely get A+.
I encourage you to openly discuss exactly what you said in a conversation with a black "friend". That is if you genuinely have any. I also encourage some ethnic/cultural diversity in your life. I promise it is a lot fun and you'll learn more than listening to crappy polarizing liberal and conservative news.
Corporate crime is yet another Diversity thang, where white queers and white Israelis revel and excel.

Obama demonstrated that fact very clearly with his Wall Street bailouts targeted for Diversity people run businesses.

If your referring to me, no I am not talking about taking action against a particular race, I am saying somebody from the black communities needs to really step up and help. Many of these young men don't have fathers and now its cyclical. I don't want to kill off black people, I am saying black people need to change the views of a good portion of their cultural thinking and quit accepting not being accountable and not being more responsible for your actions. Quit waiting and start going to get, legally. Again, this is not a shot at the whole race, but if you are of the portion I am talking about, you should take heed. A guy like Al Sharpton should not be a representative of the race, he only defends whether right or wrong. He needs to defend when it is necessary and denounce and criticize the wrong doings of some of these young men, instead of making excuses. He would be respected by both races if he did. All he does is create apathy.

Decline in Blacks in State Prisons for Drugs

The number of African-American drug offenders in state prisons has declined for the first time since law enforcement agencies started the war on drugs 25 years ago, even as convictions of white drug offenders have increased, according to a new study released Tuesday…the number of blacks in state prisons for drug crimes dropped 21.6 percent from 1999 to 2005, the last year for which data are available. The number of white drug offenders in state prisons grew by 42.6 percent in the same period.

The total number of drug offenders in state prisons increased to 253,300 in 2005 from 251,200 in 1999…

Experts in criminal justice suggested several reasons for the decline in imprisoned black drug offenders, including a reduction in racial profiling, a drop in open-air drug sales and a cooling of the crack cocaine trade that devastated urban communities throughout the 1980s and ’90s…David Kopel, an associate policy analyst for the Cato Institute, attributed the decline in black inmates serving time for drug offenses to the decline in crack cocaine, which was the drug of choice for many black addicts.

“We’re probably just seeing a shift in drug use and consumption patterns of crack cocaine, and so there is less production as well,” Mr. Kopel said….

Stiffer enforcement of laws against the production and use of methamphetamine, which is generally associated with white drug users, could account for the increase in imprisoned white drug offenders, said Beau Kilmer, a fellow at the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, Calif.

In California, the number of felony arrests for methamphetamine production increased by about 70 percent over the last decade, Mr. Kilmer said…
 (theres more of course)

I figured since White Nationalists can blow out of anything out of context concerning blacks (ex. a JandJ article claiming 1 of 2 blacks having an STD) how can White Nationalists explain this.

Meth is the white mans crack. No race is immune to flaws, for the record. So before you throw blacks, jews and whomever else you don't desire under the bus- consider a mirror to look into.

When you whites want to reach out to us and our leaders, we will not turn our backs on you, say it is your problem, throw statistics at you, mock nor belittle you. Even though the stance that many whites took against us in the late 80's and 90's really blew us away, we will not treat you the same way!

How Heroin Is Making Its Way To The Suburbs
by BRIDGET on JUNE 24, 2012
During the 1980s, half of all heroin addicts lived in either New York or California. The big cities provided the easiest access to the drug and caused millions of individuals to become severely addicted. Since then, heroin has spread around the country. Usually found in inner cities and run-down areas, officials now say that heroin is making its way to where you would least expect it; the suburbs. Kids in the suburbs are taking up the drug in staggering numbers, and are experiencing devastating consequences as a result. Heroin is one of the most addictive and dangerous drugs in the entire world, and if a person is not treated for an addiction, they will more than likely end up in jail or dead.

Suburban Areas

Ironically, kids that live in large cities have heard and understood the message that heroin is extremely dangerous, while kids in the suburbs never have. Parents and educators in better neighborhoods never fathomed that their kids would be brazen enough to use heroin in the first place. However, that is exactly what is now happening in record numbers.  Young people in suburbs are beginning to experiment with heroin because they are not fully aware of what can happen to them if they develop an addiction.

New Research

New research from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reveals that the number of teenagers dying from heroin overdoses has risen substantially in the past twenty years. In 1999, 198 young people overdosed on heroin. In 2009, there were 510 deaths. Thankfully, more teens are now becoming aware of the dangers of heroin, and more and more young people who are struggling with an addiction are seeking treatment. This is an encouraging sign that education on the dangers of drugs are starting to have an effect on young people in the suburbs where 90% of heroin addicts are white. Some researchers believe that the increase in heroin use among young people can be directly linked to prescription drug abuse.

How do you plan in fixing this?

Men are four times more likely than woman to die by suicide, but women try to commit suicide twice as often as men (they're just unsuccessful). Such attempts are often viewed as a "cry for help" rather than an actual attempt to end the person's life.

Guns are the most commonly-used method for committing suicide. Using a gun to kill oneself accounted for nearly 60 percent of suicides. Seventy-three percent of all suicides are committed by white men, and 79 percent of all firearm suicides are committed by white men. The highest suicide rate was for white men.

36,000 suicides
12,000 homicides

4500 homicides by blacks
32,000 suicides by whites

Blacks are seven times more likely to commit murder than any other race.
Blacks are eight times more likely to commit robbery than any other race.
Blacks nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
Hispanics commit violent crimes three times the rate of Whites.
Of the 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving negros and Whites eighty-five percent have black offenders and White Victims
Whites only make up ten percent of all gang members.
What determines this? Why are blacks so much more violent than Whites? Keep in mind, these statistics are not arrest statistics, they are convictions. If we were to factor in all the crimes committed by both and or all races that are not reported it would be even higher and make the point even stronger!

It's become quite evident that based on history and one's eyesight that blacks are simply more violent and predatorily in nature.

It's shocking.

all persons arrested for offending, stated that of the crimes surveyed for which the identity of the offender could be determined, 77.2 percent of all persons arrested were white or Hispanic, 20.3 percent of people arrested for offending were black or black and Hispanic; and the remaining 2.4 percent were of other races.

Blacks are only 12.5% of the population and they commit 60% of all violent crimes. They are more likely to go to prison than college. Detroit has a 25% high school graduation rate. 70% of all blacks are born out of wedlock. 35,000 white women are raped by blacks each year. So few black women are raped by whites that it cannot be statistically expressed.
