    Thing is, it is what you said.

    People that makes statements like yours, are the primary reason that those kids never get out of poverty.

    If a kid is continually told that he/she has no chance, that the system is rigged against them, that other races are keeping them down, then that kid begins to believe that there is no hope, and without hope, they give up, and when they give up... they fulfilled the prophecy that you have set for them.

    Again, I don't buy into that. The cycle can be broken. It has been broken by many of all races and ethnicities. Preaching what you are condoning is a major part of why more do not. Stop the cycle - don't perpetuate it.
    "Those kids"??

    Which kids are you talking about specifically.

    I'll ask again, which specific culture are you talking about? Which culture is accepting this?

    Does society value them? I'd sure hate to be a 20 year old right now.

    Them who? Black kids? Yeah, just like anybody else. If they act in a way that's valuable to society then they are valued. If they act like punks then no, they aren't valued.

    Oh, by the way, that isn't a black/white thing. It's a anybody thing.

    Do you have any examples of white trailer trash coordinating with other white trailer trash in order to commit crimes?

    Dare to be racist. It really doesn't take that much imagination.

    That's funny because things were so much better when I was 20. I was valued with a good paying job. These kids are valued with a 20 hour a week job at $8 an hour and then get told they are lazy pieces of crap because they live at home with their parents.

    You live in a dream world. Life really sucks for a 20 year old living in 2014. Go back to your fantasy. There is no room for you in reality.

    If saying that both inner city blacks and white trailer trash are going to be more prone to this kind of behavior makes me a racist, then so be it. I am a racist. I hate both races. Happy?

    Nope. White trailer trash doesn't do stuff like this. EVER!!!!! Give me an example.

    I know that you feel better about yourself when you lie but try to tell the truth sometimes. Telling the truth sucks really bad.

    Black criminals are way more organized than white criminals.

    I'll ask again, which specific culture are you talking about? Which culture is accepting this?
    Keep trying if you wish since you have a special pass to act like you do here for some reason. However, there is no causal relationship between the two statements because in one I was referring to my opinion and in the other I was referring to the opinion of others which influences others.

    I wouldn't get so ****ing frustrated that you get away with this **** if you were some dumbass, but you're not, and that means you intentionally misapply and misdirect to get your ****ing jollies. And that infuriates me, so go play with someone else, if you can't debate in a reasonable way that does not include what is described in that cartoon I posted.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
