It’s akin to celebrating the eradication of small pox before the job is done.
    From racial profiling by police, to the insane incarceration rates of black men, to harsher sentences for the same crimes, to the racists you describe as “Joe” being very politically active, to things as simple as the drastic steps homeowners associations take to keep the neighborhood “desirable,” institutionalized racism is alive and well in America. I wish it weren’t so.

    Homicide, death by unintentional injury, and suicide. Nothing wrong with this culture, they're just misunderstood. Who's killing all these young males? The guys in prison maybe? A culture that produces statistics like this is broken. Blaming it off on someone else will never fix the problem.

    Where does culture come from? Is it not a response to the political environment that we find ourselves in? The problems in Black culture, and I admit there are many, emerged as a response to a hostile political system, from slavery to Jim Crow, to Reagan, to capitalism itself. You should learn to attribute these things to a history of oppresion, rather the presumed racial inferiority you currently attribute it to.

    You should step off and not try to judge my motive. Your arrogance is breath taking.

    If the statistics had been thus during the most oppressive racial injustice I would agree to some extent with your hostile political theory, but not so. The less oppression the worse the statistics. While the blacks were being outwardly discriminated against they tended not to kill each other at these rates, and their test scores were equal to or superior to the white schools before forced integration. Only after white liberals began to insist that they must be helped did the real decline begin. Blacks don't need the so called help, they are not inferior in any way and only the race pimps have a vested interest in convincing anyone to the contrary. The Libs want a reliable voting block so they continue to push the idea that the game is rigged and only they can represent. Absolute unadulterated B.S.

    If a black leader with the character of MLK jr. stepped out from the huddle today and begin calling the plays, there would be nothing but forward progress. The problem is that Sharpton, Jackson and the like are the equivalent to the Jewish tax collector in the biblical times, willing to sell their race for a profit.

    Without the most basic human rights (which Black American people have technically enjoyed for nearly 45 years now) crime is not much of an issue. So only after blacks achieved emancipation from slavery and legally sanctioned oppresion did the "decline" begin? And when technical, legal (though obviously not substantive or institutional) equality was achieved, all of the inequalities and problems inflicted on Black culture from the outside are presumed to have vanished instantly? And no violence or crime committed by people within the Black community should have been expected? I suggest not. I suggest that the economic inequality fueled by slavery, seggregation, Jim Crow and so forth is still largely in place. As is the notion enforced over the centuries (yes, even now in the Obama era) that Black people are not really allowed or expected to have much of a viable place in the system. The poverty inflicted on the Black community perpetuates the violence you speak of.
    When a system fails to provide adequate representation to a given group the result is the formation of organized crime and gangs. When a system fails to provide adequate economic opportunity to a group, the result is the pursuit of illegal trade such as the drug trade. This is not unique to Black people or Black culture.
    The echoes of a history of violence and oppression against Black people have their effects today. And besides that, the American capitalist system continues to offer inadequate representation and inadequate economic opportunity to the Black community. The negative aspects of Black culture that you blame for all these problems are a symptom of the negative aspects of capitalism.
    If a black leader with the character of MLK jr. stepped out from the huddle today and begin calling the plays, there would be nothing but forward progress.
    If a Black leader with the character of MLK jr. stepped out from the huddle today, consevatives would denounce him or her as an Un-American socialst, and he or she would probably be assassinated very quickly.

    I would watch your tongue, MLK was a registered republican and no conservatives would not label him a socialist, if anything republicans would back Martin. Blacks were not being affored there rights promised to them under the constitution, anybody who believes in upholding the constitution would side with Martin.

    Hysterical race baiters swaddled in their own dishonesty will often fail to grasp the fact that it was democrats who stood against desegregation and the whole civil rights movement. Funny how they forget the true injustices when offered a "gimme" or a handout by the same people later.
