    Could you be a little more specific? Which problems?
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    Black single mothers have the highest welfare rate of any demographic in the United States, I believe.

    Either way you want to look at it, the shift towards single parent families hasn't been for the better.

    You have lost track of who said what, the ENFORCEMENT of the laws is biased against minorities.

    That is a highly simplified analysis. You have to consider the migration of black people from agriculture to the city for factory jobs, the growing disparity of salaries due to favoring those with college educations, and the final hammer falling with the abandonment of the cities by those factories. There are a lot more factors going on than "Black people just suckz lol!"

    I'm trying to think of a time where someone was sent to jail because he was caught snorting coke in his house, or because he was smoking a joint outside a concert, and I can't remember one instance.

    Didn't white people have the same experiences with the above?

    WTF? You are leaving out other races bias influence upon the Black community....you are denying the existence of racism.

    You are insisting that racism exists, prove it. Clearly other races don't have the same problems, why are you suggesting that blacks get to play the racism card and nobody else needs to.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Especially the ones who peddle drugs to kids, but I'll even include the ones who sell these exotic drugs to the young hipsters who can afford to buy them.
