I think a part of it that maybe should be is many black people identify more with other blacks; shared history of persecution, impressive accomplishments despite difficult treatment in history and now many in the post Civil Rights era choose to be deadbeats, crackheads, dropouts and the worst kind of criminals. Its pathetic. I wonder what Martin Luther King would say today if he were alive to see what these thugs have done with the mantle he handed to him. A 70% out of wedlock birth rate, 14% making up 50% of the prison population and murder for boredom is not why gave his life. Sorry, I'm just angry and frustrated right now. People should be able to jog down the street without having to worry if they're going to get killed because somebody has nothing else to do. I'd think we'd somewhat were trying to come together as a country if Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Ben Jealous and Louis Farrakhan would go out to Oklahoma and call for these thugs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law but I doubt that'll happen.
