    That's not "going both ways" because when blacks do it, it is socially meaningless to white people.

    I blame the same people that I blame for any issues of these sort - the people themselves. There is NO reason for anyone to live in poverty their whole lives. Choices are what matter, not what the world throws at you. You can rise above your circumstances and be a success if you choose to make the effort to do so.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    Of course. It's the foundation of:


    1. Racism, today, is the same as racial bigotry, just name calling.
    2. AA is racism, as it oppresses whites given "racism has ended".
    3. Whites are victims.
    4. Blacks are inferior as evidenced in "fair competition".
    etc


    The social aspects of racism must be ignored for those things to be proudly proclaimed by racists everywhere.

    Yes I do.

    The federal govt. is not controlled by the GOP.

    Furthermore, the drug war is not primarily waged by the Federal Gubmint in the first place. It is waged by Democrat-controlled local police in big cities, such as Detroit.

    Exactly. In this country, anyone who feels the need to improve himself can do so, assuming he's physically and mentally capable of doing so.

    Personal responsibility has been sadly diminished in this country. Everything is always someone else's fault.

    But the GOP are the ones who put these laws in place. The police are just carrying out the laws. Put there by Reagan.

    And actually, yes, it was the federal government who first waged the war. The first person to talk about creating a "war on drugs" was... Nixon.

    You just can't get a break, can you?
