    Just about every time that Ann Coulter opens her mouth she reveals to the world exactly what kind of a low-life soulless lizard person she is.

    When people tell me what they believe, I believe them.

    I don't think we have a problem with blacks being held responsible for their actions when we're speaking in terms of justice. You can look up arrest numbers and jail population percentages in virtually any state and see that. Of course, this could be due to the fact that blacks overwhelmingly commit more crimes that any other race, but I digress.
    I agree with Coulter in that blacks always create a HUGE uproar against any sort of perceived injustice committed against them by the white race ie the Zimmerman verdict. However, blacks never seem to find the time to be very critical of themselves. Sure, there are some black leaders who do what they can to address the problems of black children born out of wedlock, black on black crime, etc. However, they never raise the stink that they raise when they see what they think is a good opportunity to fill their coffers with money when a black person is "victimized" by a white person. Race opportunists such as Sharpton and J. Jackson (Pres Obama?) do everything they can to make as big a deal as possible of things such as this. Instead of pointing the finger, it's time they take a look in the mirror. Women clutch their purses when a young black man enters an elevator because the fact of the matter is that it's more likely they'll get mugged by him than a young white man. Doors lock on cars as a young black man passes because it's more likely that he will car jack the owner than if a young white male was passing. Those are facts. They are indisputable. You can Google black crime rates and see NUMEROUS studies that corroborate this. That is, unless you look at a study done by the NAACP or Van Jones. Of course, that brings us back to the first part of my post......

    So, you do agree with the above quoted statement?
    You see this a lot in discussions about the Israeli/Arab conflict and those involving the west and developing world. What she is referring to is the fact that the violence emanating from these groups is always presented as an inevitable outcome. And the the ability to act as their own independent agents is removed from the individual. Nature and circumstance leaves them no choice, and thus, they are always the victim.

    The author is someone I particularly do not like, and it's a point that could certainly be worded in a less crass manner. But she does have a point here. It's a rather demeaning and paternalistic view to take of a group of people. And it certainly doesn't help solve the underlying issues facing black america

    PS Also, many people seem to be misunderstanding who and what the comment "win that right" was directed at. She is referring to the type of writer who is always blaming society for violence emanating from black america. She's saying such writers are not looking at these people as individuals able to make their own choices, but unthinking automatons that simply react to stimuli.

    First, you're talking entertainers picking rare events and trying to make it look larger. Redress was trying to point this out to you earlier. You just can't take so few and try to make it huge. Secondly, much of this is based in real issues, even today. The sixties only seem long ago. It really was just yesterday in terms of the problem. A bit arrogant for the priviledge group to tell minorities to get over it. Seriously.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yet you are doing exactly the same thing; taking the word of the POTUS, that has encountered literally millions of people in the course of his life, yet "vividly recalls" 3 or 4 of them that reacted to his presence in a negative way that he considered to be racially discriminatory.

    The 1960's are about three generations ago now, which is hardly "yesterday", and we seem to see many (if not most) US immigrants choose to loose their hyphenated status after that period of time - when was the last time that you heard about the plight of the "boat people"? Many of those of Japanese decent were herded into isolation camps in the 1940's yet mananged to overcome, not dwelling on it and teaching their offspring to beware of those "round eyed" folks.

    Just how long should the racial "pity party" last before you think it is time to say buck up, get an education, obey the laws and get a job? The black out of wedlock childbirth rate is now at 73% (and rising), 1 in 3 of all black males can be expected to do some prison time (1 in 2 if a HS drop out and under age 30) and General Welfare is now largley replacing the black male as "daddy"/provider.

    Success.
    She's often right on the mark, so she's right AND she gets the attention. How cool is that??

    That's the Left you're thinking of. Coulter's just brutally honest.

    She's not on our side, that's the problem. Anyone who thinks she speaks for all conservatives really needs to reassess. :-/
