    8 black celebrities who dont believe in god. It appears that being a Christian is not what aided them to the top:

    There's nothing racist about blaming the members of one race for a problem.

If every small black child grew up admiring Herman Cain and yes even President Obama (As much as I disagree with his politics I think he is a good man and a good role model for young african americans.) I think Black America would be far better served.
    Obama is absolutely a role model for young black men, but he should really be a role model for any young man of any color. All young men should aspire to be great men when they grow up, and pick a role model that lives a life worth emulating. Race should be irrelevant.

    Yes, we have had drug laws much longer. So has almost everywhere. I am talking about the complex of drug conviction we have -- the official "drag war" -- which is largely responsible for us having some of the highest incarceration rates in the world, and which seems to target minorities.

    He'll no doubt be a role model for black people who believe that rising that high is impossible.

    And this is where you would be wrong (in bold). The drug laws (I do not agree with them at all) target drug users. If minorities are the highest percentage of drug users, they will be the ones convicted more often. There's nothing racist about the drug laws, sorry.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Oh oh oh, does this mean I finally get to play the "blame the Jews" card? It's been sitting in my deck for months.

    I don't blame any issues I have as a white person on blacks.

    Not if it's true. Only race baiters find racism where it doesn't exist.
