    I think you are projecting, but thats just me.

    You take the worst of black society which makes up roughly 15% of blacks in this country and act like they represent the other 85% who are law abiding tax paying citizens like myself. Your comments are ignorant of facts and based on useless anecdotal evidence at best.
    Really look at how many Hollywood, music artists and prominent black athletes behave. I can't make this stuff up. You want to separate yourself from something, separate yourselves from that image and not the rest of America. You're telling me that 15% of 15% of the population is acting this way, and they are all in prison right now because blacks are over represented in prisons, right? So then we shouldn't be seeing this stuff on the streets anymore, but yet we do. Your numbers don't added up. No one is buying it. I say 15% of 15% of the population is getting it right. You need to work on the rest.

    So entertainment is now an acceptable mean for stereo typing people?

    We should not have to. You are old enough to know generalizing people is bigoted and wrong. You should be judging individuals on merit.

    Are you one of those that thinks all Muslims are terrorists?

    I am telling you that you are absolutely wrong.

    Whites commit about 70% of the crime in this country. This is no surprise as they make up as large a percentage of the population.

    Blacks on the other hand make up around 13% of the US population but have high rates of incarceration and conviction vs other ethnic groups per capita.

    Many reasons exist for this disparity. The useless war on drugs. The fact that a person of color is more likely to be jailed for a drug offense etc.

    You really need to get the facts and stop just assuming what you see on TV is a representation of all black society.

    You and him seem to think there is no cause so we need to just "get over it," this is ignorance at it's best.

    Before you can fix something you have to admit there is a problem. Then and only then can it be fixed.

    PS This does not excuse racism on the part of blacks or criminality, it is merely the symptom of a larger social problem within the black community.
    No, the ignorance is you continuing to wallow in your Plight of the Black Man pity party.

    The horse is dead. You can continue to kick the carcass, you might find a sympathizer or two, or maybe an occasional apologist, but the horse is dead.

    People have moved on, try it.

    Alright, but your people are the ones with the problem. Why don't asians and middle easteners have this problem?

    I love how people think that electing a black President suddenly erases 400 years of racism. Was it a huge step int he right direction? Yes. However, it still can't change or erase what has happened in the past. I'm not saying that people are justified to use it as an excuse for everything, but to claim that it's suddenly over is purely ignorant.

    So now pointing out that the situation has causes is somehow wallowing in a pity party?

    You mite want to study the English language.

    Again with more uninformed moronic statements that have nothing to do with my position or statements.

    Your statement is ignorant at best, and every time you type you prove this beyond a reasonable doubt.

    My people? Well since you know me so well why don't you point out who "my people" are?

    What problem are you talking about? Most community's be they mixed or otherwise have plenty of problems. I guess you have not visited poor white, Hispanic and Asian neighborhoods?

    Your problem is with appearances and not much else. You seem to think everyone should subscribe to what you consider the norm. Sorry, welcome to the reality that all people are different.

    Yep, as stated, a sympathizer. I've been very clear on my position in regard to racism & bigotry, yet you run in with mouth a blazing.

    More wallowing, more Sharpton & Jackson type of rhetoric.

    Oh, so you want to play games now about who your people are. I tell you what, you go ahead and continue the way you are. See if your problem gets solved. Like I said, my family never owned slaves, and never fought against black civil rights.
