    So you can tell me how you understand why some black teens have anger towards whites?
    Because, there is so much systematic racism affecting these teens

    This is what im talking about, how many more generations who aren't affected by jim crow and slavery are going to get to use this **** as a personal excuse for their actions???!??!?!?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Allow me to echo Caine and ask what do blacks have to be angry about? I'm black and I'm not angry at whites for anything.

    I think there are far more white Liberals that are angry at whites for wrongs that are a century old than there are blacks. Until, the angry white Liberals get the blacks stirred up, that is.

    I for one do not believe the flames of racism will ever die. Unless we breed ourselves into a single race or exterminate all but one. At that time mankind will simply find some other basis for prejeduce and hatred. We are an imperfect species that sadly tend to prey on ourselves.

    A hundred and fifty years ago, if you'd gone to New York City, you wouldn't have believed that the flames of culturalism would ever die.
    Jews, Italians, Irish, etc, were all just as clearly defined and exclusionist, just as prejudiced against each other as people of different races are today. Even though they were all white.
    They didn't intermarry; any time they tried to it caused a huge row. They didn't hang out together. They formed gangs and targeted each other for beatings simply because of their ethnicity.

    Today, that's all gone.
    White people are just white; nearly all of them are an amalgamation of various European ethnicities, many of them with some Native American thrown in as well.
    The "melting pot" thing worked.
    Today, when a white person tells you, "I'm a quarter french, a quarter german, a quarter Scottish, and a quarter Polish", you just smile and nod, eyes glazed over with boredom, and promptly forget what they just said. It has no bearing whatsoever on anything. They're still just white.

    My hope is that someday, when a person tells you, "I'm a quarter Kenyan, a quarter Taiwanese, a quarter Dutch, and a quarter Sioux", it'll be just as irrelevant. Your eyes will glaze over with boredom and you'll lie and say, "Oh, that's very interesting", but really you'll be thinking, "Who cares? You're still just you."

    We're not to that point yet, clearly. The intense focus on Obama's racial heritage really highlights how very much farther we still have to go.

    Des Moines Police Sgt. Dave Murillo told The Des Moines Register today that he stands behind a police report he wrote about a weekend assault at the Iowa State Fair that referenced racially charged comments passed on to him by another officer.

    Murillo stated in a report he wrote Friday night: “On-duty officers at the fairgrounds advise there was a group of 30 to 40 individuals roaming the fairgrounds openly calling it ‘beat whitey night.’ ”

    The report was written in reference to the assault of a Polk City man who suffered serious injuries after a group of people attacked him in the 3000 block of East Grand Avenue Friday.

    Murillo spoke briefly to the assault victim while he was treated for his injuries and Murillo worked off-duty security at Mercy Medical Center.

    Murillo then called officials from the fair, the Iowa State Patrol and at least one officer at the fairgrounds to exchange information, he said. The report of the “beat whitey night” comment was relayed to him by Sgt. David Seybert, who was working off-duty at the State Fairgrounds the night the victim was attacked near the midway area, Murillo said.

    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    Maybe its just NOT A NEW STORY. Maybe its just a bunch of stupid kids looking for an excuse to get into trouble, and they happen to find it. Maybe its not national news because THOUSANDS of crimes take place every year in the US with some kind of racial factor, do you hear about all of them? Of course not, because its NOT national news.

    So please, please, please, please, please, stop all this whining, bitching, moaning, and victimhood. Step back, look at the facts, actually consider WHY this might not be national news. Perhaps it has NO national context, and the only reason you want it to be national news is because... you think people don't realize there may be black racists out there? I dunno...
    Que??? I thought it was a thread about media bias, not victimization.
