There is a major crime problem in the African American community. That segment of the population that are thugs and that part of Black popular culture which promotes the criminal lifestyle are to blame. The police suspician that falls on the entire community is their making.
How can you blame Black gangs, drug dealers and musicians who promote them on anybody but Blacks?
The alternative to overzealous police is police who let the wrong element run wild until you clean up your own act.

Things done in the open-air market should be treated more harshly. Take prostitution. An escort service or massage parlor is out of sight but street-walkers are a blight on the neighborhood. The same can be said of drug dealers. White collar criminals get more money but the thug with the gun kills people. That is why Black urban areas recieve more attention.
Why do Latins, Indians, Chinese, Arabs and other minorities remain law abiding? Whitey like them? No, they take care of themselves.

not every white person and not every black person is a racist. All races are capable of being racist on an individual matter. Truthfully I have found that whites and blacks are not a racist as some Asians. Racism is merely a type of xenophobia - fear of the alien, the different - those not like you. Fight Fear with Love not anger...Anger is, itself, just repressed fear.
Very well stated and correct observations in my opinion.

"White collar criminals get more money but the thug with the gun kills people." I must take issue with this statement.

The dangerous acts of crimes unique to the wealthy are either ignored or treated lightly while for the so-called common crimes, the poor are far more likely than the well-off to be arrested, if arrested, if charged convicted, and if convicted sentenced to prison (Lee and Solomon 242). The media reports criminal acts of the poor daily, while the people who commit white-collar crimes go unnoticed.

"The cost of corporate crime in America is over ten times greater than the combined larcenies, robberies, burglaries, and auto-thefts committed by individuals" (Lee and Solomon).

Crime reports are expressing to the public consumers that the average citizen's greatest danger is from someone below him/her economically, never though from someone well off. For every one murder committed in the United States, two people die as a result of unsafe workplace conditions, But these workplace deaths are not reported, nor are they considered murders by the media.

Now here's a very worthwhile discussion to have. What you're saying is absolutely true, and I've had this very discussion many times With both White and Black people. When you start with a lie, it doesn't get any better as you proceed ? So what is the lie ? The lie is this ? """Drugs are a problem for everyone alike !""" This is the cry we've been hearing from the Cosmopolitan elite for years, and it's not accurate. The problem is that you run into a wall just in the way you describe when the question comes home ? IF that's true (Drugs are a problem equally for Black and White and rich and poor)? Then of course African Americans have a very valid question when they ask the obvious ? """Then why are prisons full of Black people for a problem you say we all share ? Where are all the White people you say are so similarly affected ?""" The fact is, drugs do not effect everyone alike. For people of means, it's mere recreation, and though a certain percentage will get into real difficulty, they can better afford to slip a litte where as those of lesser means don't have the latitude, and yes ? Young Black kids are under more scrutiny and so pay a higher price for what many White kids (not all as many White kids are also poor and without a buffer) are also doing at a lesser cost. So what does all this mean ? It means 2 things primarily ? This is not inherently a fair situation, and we need to talk about it honestly and openly. Despite what some attempt to promote, the very most troubling violent crime in America is being commited by African Americans and against primarily other African Americans. To deny this only causes people to back off and abandon any notion that African Americans can attend to their own plight even for the sake of their own Children. It leads them to all kinds of bad associations. We have to be honest that the situation isn't entirely fair, and we have to ask African Americans what sacrifices they are willing to make or not make on behalf of their Children ? We also of course need to admit that drugs are as American as Apple Pie, and then collectively decide what to do about that. I do entirely agree that our approach to the so called drug problem is backward and wrong headed in the very way you state. Basically, we need to talk. We need to be honest. Trust me in this ? Always being fair is entirely out of the question. It's not possible, and to continually accuse the culture at large where there may exist some hypocrisy is pointless, because we are not all the same exactly with the same needs and problems. If we were, it would be possible to be fair. The mantra for so many who only ever seek to condemn and accuse every American interest is of hypocrisy. We will always risk some hypocrisy when we attempt to deal with our social ills of every sort ? Is the solution to sit and self chastise while "OUR" kids are dying ? Believe me when I say I've given this a great deal of consideration, and the perceptions of African Americans only continue in a full slide, and it's tragic because it's so unnecessary. All we need do is be honest about what we each own as our own social frailties, and no ? Life will never be fair until we deal with our ills individually and collectively, and we reach an even playing field. I promise ? If we continue (if you continue) in the same defeatist and accusatory tone, nothing will ever change except to get worse, and many more kids will die needlessly.

Jesse Jackson himself said if he was walking down a dark city street heard a noise and turned around to see a bunch of crazed skinhead neo-nazis he would be relieved to know he was not being stalked by Black gangstas.

I basically said all of this in my first comment.:/ Anyway that doesn't give cops the right to kill people for no reason. For example, one Black guy was coming from his bachelor party and accidently bumped into a cop car. The cop shot him up. Can you excuse that? No, you can't. Or what about the cops who pull over Blacks for no reason aside from it being a car full of Blacks? Did you not see on the news months ago how three or two cops beat up cooperating, handcuffed Mexicans and only got suspension? Let's not forget the cops who ruthlessly tear up houses, plant drugs or weapons on people, or steal from criminals. Aren't they then just as much a criminal? Does that make them in denial about themselves or hypocritical? Are you not aware of all the crime in White communities that is kept "hush hush" or overlooked because one of their relatives is a cop or because of their influential parents?

How come no one cares when poor "white trash" get killed or arrested? You want special treatment because of slavery? The police are there to protect the rich, not the "cracker".
No one cares about all the "white Rodney Kings" out there. The media sweeps it under the rug.

Well if you target the open market then you will get a disproportionate amount of minority arrests. I agree that open air markets should be targeted to an extent but when studies show that black vs white drug use is similar but blacks are arrested and convicted much more for drug crimees something is not right. Every race you mentioned faces its own stereotypes and mexicans are 2nd most represented group in jails besides also being outnumbered by whites.
If your going to fight the drug war you got to start at the top. It doesn't make sense to constantly arrest the little guy (usually black street dealer) when the big man (usually white) is moving much more weight and making much more money. Just because he does it behind the scenes doesn't make it less criminal and the fact that he is supplying these dealers who (occasionaly) use violence makes them more culpable in my opinion.
If inner city neighborhoods have drug dealers and prostitutes openly operating and because of the addicts an increased incidence of violent crime there will be calls for the city to do something. The city sends in more cops. If the problem while there is not being done publicly in the majority Caucasian neighborhoods how do you propose we bring their arrest rate up, random searches?
You might not want the violent crime or the increased police presence but in an out of control neighborhood you get one or the other (or both).

Cops are never wrong! They put up with a lot of crap while serving and protecting us. If they shoot some SOB or bop a kid upside the head with a club, then so be it. It is all for the public good. Again, Cops are never wrong!

Blacks fail by not considering themselves American first. Rather than form all these black separatist groups, they can and should join in as Americans first. I have many black friends, and personally I like Barack Obama, but find his far left liberal views too radical for me. If he was a conservative, I don't think he would have a problem winning the presidency at all, except for his inexperience.

<---- white rodney king. No one gave me a news story. I did not get paid. Hell, they did not even pay to fix my teeth! I had to...and before everyone says 'we don't know the whole story'..here it is in a nutshell. I callled the police as someone just stole my wifes purse. I was intoxicated (legally...not smashed!) The "police" decided to get a little too agressive with my wife and I politley (not really) told them to get "your fucking hands off my wife"...that is the last I remember.
So if a "cop" can not be told that, when I called them to begin with....well enough said..I hate cops now. Black or white...I dont care...I HATE COPS and I personally will NEVER call a cop again. They RESPOND to problems..they can NOT prevent. They are slaves of the socialist government.

If the SWAT team kicks in my door, I will comply with their orders, respectfully call them Sir or Ma'am, and thank them for their service to the community. I will even pay to fix my own door. Thank God for the Thin Blue Line which protects us from chaos and anarchy!

Your wrong buddy, blacks failed by not being considered Amerikkkans first.

Yes, blacks will join Amerikkka, because since the birth of this nation, white Amerikkka has welcomed blacks with opened arms.

yeah, right.

Blacks wish they lived in your rainbow and lemon drop world. But we live in Amerikkka, where we've had to fight to not be slaves, to sit in restaurants, and get equal education. Since the end of slavery, we have tried to assimalate into the American way of life, but it's been kind of hard, u know, with the KKK, Jim Crow, and racist and bigots in all of the most powerful positions and all.

The all powerful socialist state is infallible? Sounds like a Liberal-Progressive.
Bureaucracy is inherently evil. That is why our founders gave us the right to bear arms and form well-regulated private militias as a hedge against the state's desire to become dictatorial.
Some of us believe in personal liberty rather than government slavery.

Wonder why the US of KKK freely elects brown skinned folks like Governor Bobby Jindal (in Louisiana no less).
Why do Indians, Chinese and other non-European minorities get accepted? Do you think the lack of paranoia has something to do with it?

You can shoot at the police if you want, but I choose to obey the law and respect authority. Seems you are a bit of an idiot.
