He makes $millions on being wrong and has yet to do one thing that has brought real justice to blacks.

Black on black crime is largely ignored by the community as a cause for anything, because they don't want to accept the fact that much of the problem is internal. I made a statement about stereotypes being human nature in another thread, and the Black Community is doing zero to try and change that image (speaking of the common gangsta image promoted for the last 20 years). What are gangsters? They are crooks. So if you want to promote an image associated with crooks, don't blame people for forming a negative impression of you. But remember, Brown wasn't shot because he looked like a gangster, he was shot because he acted like one.
    You pretty much put the ball on the tee, grabbed the Louisville, and knocked it out of Ferguson with that.

    The reason the black community is getting less and less respect is that it virtually uniformly refuses to look at itself in the mirror and acknowledge its self-inflicted problems.

    There is nothing that cops, whites, government, or the judicial system can do to fix those repetitive internal cultural issues. The black community is going to have to recognize it and address it by itself.

    I see you can't rebut a single point. I accept your surrender.

    So I guess all the troubles with blacks today are from white people is that it? Clueless.

    That's a bunch of bull.

    I respect what Charles Barkley said because his opinions were based on the actual facts of that case, instead of a bunch of politically correct, unsubstanciated, race-baiting BS that 90% of the black people being interviewed are spewing...

    People aren't always color blind, but the facts are, and it's refreshing to hear a black person's opinion on this case that's actually centered on those facts.

    Funny, one would ask the same of you.
