More like going to college, getting good jobs, becoming productive tax-paying members of society. The same taxes that go to the welfare moms that pop out black babies the kill each other.

Deaths upon men woman children, black white whatever color you are have risen at an alarming rate due to government CHEMTRAIL operations.

The hip hop generation is killing itself...Who would of thought? I have to drive Meridian late at night sometimes and I always have a firearm next to me. Plus, you can hear the gunshots all over the near north side at all hours. That is absolutely no surprise when one reads those statistics and the Star everyday!!

You ignorance is sad and it's why this country is being held back. We have people like you spewing your poison of ignorance and holding us all back. Pick up a book and educate yourself so we all can move forward. Read some of the writings of Dr. Martin Luther King and learn how to live judging by character and not by skin. I'm a white man who had to learn the hard way so there is hope fpr you.

I feel the same and I agree with you the same as you. Grew up in a small town with certain preconceived ideas about race and gender. Once I began looking around it became apparent that this single millimeter of flesh we are covered with didn't have any bearing on a person's intelligence or abilities. All persons given the same opportunities do as well as any other group. It might seem that culture has more to do with what a certain group becomes rather than race or color. Naturally there wll be those who say I am a fool, so be it. Their opinions are of no consequence, they don't really matter.

Yeah... Sure ... Whatever...
My words, my attitudes, are making young negros kill each other… Whatever you say…
I don't think Reverend King had this in mind when he was telling us he had a dream.
I saw it, I saw it on TV, I was “there” I believed….
I am judging on character, young black males KILL far, FAR more often than any other collection of people and you still say I shouldn’t judge.
Why are you defending treasonous, murderous, domestic terrorist, ignorant thugs?
You seem to believe the causes for this situation are cultural. Am I correct in assuming so? If it is, in fact a cultural thing, what do you think is the cause of it? How long did it take for this to evolve? Does any one group bear responsiblity or at least a part of it?

It was a question fool.
NO KIDDING! FOOL! Too bad you're incapable of an intelligent dialogue. You certainly seem to possess the ability but prefer to insult, engage in name-calling, and be confrontational. One has to wonder if you'd be so brave if the persons you insult were within arms reach of you. The answer to that is obvious. I predict some day you'll be run over by an automobile. You'll go outside without a shirt and someone in an auto will see the yellow streak up your back and mistake you for a highway.
