    And the consequences of these poorly thought out programs are in the White House today. The 'affirmative action' programs begun by the Democrats institutionalized the idea that Black people were somehow inferior. This should be a sin against any group of people.

    I'm pretty sure that idea was well established long before then, like maybe when we brought them here in chains?

    Some people had that idea at the time and they were referred to as "Democrats". The "Republicans" fought a Civil War, with hundreds of thousands of men lost, to abolish this idea of inferiority. But the "Democrats" reintroduced the idea again through their race based "Affirmative Action" programs.

    Just a brief history lesson.

    I'm well aware of both thanks. I'm also well aware of who usually bought and owned them.

The media should have been all over this story just for the sensationalism.

    But it wasnt a violent crime against a minority so over look it as long as you can so you can tell everyone how Oprah says she got mistreated in Switzerland or update some other trivial entertainment story.

    I dont care if you are green, blue, yellow, purple with orange polka dots....if you viciously kill someone for no reason, you dont deserve to see another minute of sunlight ever again.
    The Oprah story was news because Oprah is famous. For no other reason than that.

    This case began to become interesting after the facts came out and after this poor gentleman had passed away.

    It is sad that not every murder victim gets the attention he/she deserves, but with no human interest angle stories like this will never go big in the media.

    Let me add this, then.

    From the 1860 US census.

    28% percent of free blacks living in the south owned black slaves.

    Less than 5% of whites living in southern states owned black slaves.

    Less than 1.5% of whites in the US as a whole owned black slaves.

After all when you are that much poorer the laws matter less, as you have less to lose.
    Lol !!!!

    Well then cite away ( really, post data that shows a doubled crime rate ( including murder, in the exclusive white sections of LA ) and no amount of poverty justifies breaking the law.

    What you're doing is defining down bad behaviour and choices of a group of individuals. People like you have been doing it for decades and its why those areas continue to struggle.

    It comes down to the choices a individual makes, poverty is a consequence of some of those choices and per capita, blacks commit more crime than whites.

    That doesn't mean all blacks are criminals and all whites are saints.
