You are high, smokey! I have been reading your posts and unlike most of your "brothers", you seem like you are very educated. Back up your talk with some stats, homie, as I would like to see where you are getting your information from. Something people could google, anyone can make up anything on here.

It's no premise, crime statistics are recorded facts, sir. And nowhere did I say that it was 'all' black culture. The majority of it, perhaps, but not all.
The masses eyes are opening to black criminality, and that's the truth.
Did you carefully read what I said?? I'm not talking about the Gospel according statistics lol. I just think that you seem to focus more on black people. I don't think I've ever seen you write so passionately about the other MYRIAD social ills. Correct me if I'm wrong. I really think it's more important things to life than the problems of black people that you love to make front and center lol. Does it make you feel good that you were not born the wrong color? I'm sure you feel a HUGE relief when you look at the pretty white skin huh??(BTW a certain fork-tongued Demoness need not respond. I just know that you read this.)

Selling ridiculous pyramid schemes seems to be a jewish specialty for getting rich.

Afro-blacks earn their bread in a more honest way, through Affirmative Action.

Asian indians are not afro-americans, although Indians are still relatively rich through their business practices.

That's an easy one. Every American should be able to answer that question. How did it work for me? My cup runneth over my friend. At eighteen I decided to not go to college and pursue a career as a professional painter. That was 1981 and we were in the throws of the failing Carter years. Even in those difficult early years I was able to live on my own, bought a mint 1965 Mustang Fastback, and by 21 had bought three acres, built a house on it in the next year, and got married at 23 because I got my then girlfriend pregnant. I worked that job until I was 28, and then quit and started my own painting and construction business. I have been married 25 years, have two great kids, and my business currently employs five people.
"Reagonomics" is simply a derogatory term coined by you liberals and the media to cast a negative spin on what is a very simple and successful economic model of free market capitalism. One that works every time it is applied because it structures a regulatory and taxing policy that encourages entrepreneurs to take risks, and creates a stable and predictable base for which businesses can anticipate and plan for the future. It is also referred to as "trickle down economics" and is mocked by liberals like yourself. Thats usually because they are unwilling to accept the reality that the more free people who have disposable income, the better and stronger the economy. I get "trickled on" every week my business exists. In over twenty years of being in business I have never been hired by a poor person. I get hired, like the rest of the service industry, by individuals and businesses that have money. They spend it to hire me and I in turn pay my men, buy supplies for the job, replace equipment as I need too, put gas in my truck and purchase a soda at the station, pay for insurance and taxes, the cell phones we use to communicate, advertising, etc. I also buy groceries, take my wife to dinner, buy clothes, put fifty in a graduation envelope, pay the guy to mow my lawn, etc. I do save some, but no one in the business of self employment takes all the money and hoards it like many liberals suggest happens. It is invested and spent and works its way through the economy as a result of free individuals entering into private contracts and transactions without the government interfering or strangling the desire and motivation of those individuals to pursue their happiness. I hope that helps you out.
I'm glad in the span of thirty one years you've achieved so much. Unfortunately, here on planet Earth, not everyone has that same I guess, tenacity, you possess. I'm not condemning you at all. I'm just saying that the system of Reaganomics is not as flawless as you allege. It's based on the premise that those who sit in board rooms, along with the other wealthy, "elite" members of society are selfless and moral. More often than not, they are immoral. There "trickle" is more like a light mist. They often enrich themselves and their peers. On the flip side, I know the flaws of welfare and too much government. If you consistently coddle someone and do what they, as able-bodied person's, should be doing, then, yes, you will have a problem. The scales of these two extremes will never be completely balanced.

The problems of black people are eventually everyone else's problem. Polite civil society is becoming more rare, thanks in part to blacks and their problems.

Non-Asian minorities are the problem, where ever in America they happen to be. Let's be honest , at least.

Right. Well, honestly, I'm glad that your bias is well documented lol. You failed to mention, though, the problems of everyone else too. One in particular I'm thinking of is the problems that people in corporate America (mostly white) create. While not quite new, what's fresh on my mind with glaring clarity is the Enron scandal of like 2000-01. The head triumvirate (Kenneth Lay, Andrew Fastow, and Jeffrey Skilling) destroyed millions of lives and cost billions of dollars. You know why? GREED. You seem to have a singular focus on minorities as the cause of America's woes. That line of logic and thought is intrinsically flawed. As I said, why have you never spoken out so passionately about corporations that destroy millions of lives? or about that nut in Aurora, CO? or about the tragedies that happen everyday elsewhere NOT related to "non-Asian minorities?"

Yes, I am half scotch/irish. Good guess. Let me just ask you a simple question, how many neighborhoods that are predominantly white are you afraid to go in and how many neighborhoods that are predominantly black are you afraid to go in, be honest? To the other person who asked why people seem so concerned with black violence, uh, it is because we are scared. I know, I know, bring up the dude in Colorado and he is white, so we are all crazy now. That was one dude, but look at all of the black violence that occurs everyday, you are lying to yourself. How many times do you hear about white kids beating up an old man? How many times do you hear about black kids doing that? That is cowardly and just wrong. Go ahead and defend it though. Lack of accountability.

See this is the biggest problem with blacks. Pass the buck and hope for the best. If things continue on this path, society as a whole is going to suffer with the lawlessness and lack of morality that plagues blacks.

You can say to me whatever you will but you cannot refute the fact that it is blacks that commit most crime in America..be it drug/gun/murder/and especially rape. Keep looking the other way, and eventually it will go away right? Too bad it doesn't work that way.

And what I am saying, if I met you and you speak like you speak and you seem like a good dude, do you really think I would give a shit that you are black, do you think I care what people I don't know think? That would be pretty shallow. I used to be an idealist and now I am a realist. I see what I see, so you can say what ever you want. I can tell you I hate no one because of their skin color, so again, if you were a good dude, me and you would probably get along just fine. As a whole, your race causes much more destruction and senseless violent crime than any other. The truth is in the numbers.

And a good portion of your race has that sense of entitlement, like shit supposed to be free to them. WTF! Why does a lot of your culture put down education and working a regular job? Maybe not you, but a lot of your race. I work my a.. off everyday and can't sleep at night without taking a sleeping pill thinking about problems and then I see some dude with 3 kids by me, who slings weed and plays xbox all day, getting high in front of his kids with nicer sh.t than me and more food in their fridge cause of food stamps and by selling their EBT card doing nothing all day and I get pissed off. Cool dude, I buy my stuff from him, but it makes me mad. He is always thinking of some get rich quick scheme. Nice dude, lack of integrity and honesty, not trying to pull his weight, not trying to be productive in society. I know a lot of brothers like that. All cool, but I don't respect that gangster lifestyle.

Blacks in this country are bringing it down? You are one stupid SOB! If anything, the criminality of "YOUNG PEOPLE" both Black and White, are the only things that keep plenty of communities from totally going under, especially when a jail is built in some white suburb in upstate New York or wherever, employing hundreds of people. If anything, it's dumb arses like you who are bringing the country down because you seem to think that juvenile delinquents are responsible for the Banks failing, for the ongoing wars overseas, for the high arse taxes that we pay, for the outsourcing of jobs overseas, and for the importing of a cheap, illegal labor force from South America. You think juvenile delinquents are responsible for wages basically staying the same for the last few decades, while the price of housing, food, heat, electric, etc. has gone up.
"Blacks as a demographic are starting to act like terrorists, rather then setting the example of a responsible, and law abiding citizen." This is your assessment of the black demographic, which by all accounts is not very intelligent. You are asking Blacks to be what your people have never, EVER BEEN!
And thats why blacks in Africa still practice slavery to this day? My "people" are responsible for your freedom and the right to vote and participate in the American system of opportunity. You sound like an ungrateful, angry piece of shit to me.

First thing, I'm not a black kid, I'm a grown arse man, who will not defend criminality by his race, anymore than you will defend it when one of your kin is the culprit. And I would greatly appreciate it, if you and your ilk discontinue to bore mature, adult, grown men with conversations about some damn thug, or someone on welfare. My intellect is much too advanced for that clown conversation over and over again. It is quite obvious that the most cheated, deprived individuals in America are whites. Look at u ho's topic of conversation. It's either about killing or welfare. U kill your own damn selves more via suicide, via a gun, three times as much as the total number of homicides committed by all the races combined in these United States. Welfare, u guys are on it the most, but you are so unintelligent and insecure you "think" Blacks are draining the system. Never mind the Billions that we send to Israel (welfare), or the corporate welfare (they pay little to no taxes and they are still given damn near a trillion dollars for a bail-out). U guys for the most part have very little understanding of the issues you speak so loudly about.

Ok so you feel that I'm passing the buck? Is it because you can't refute what I've said about corporate America? Yes black people commit crime at disproportionately high rates. However, in the context of this argument, I would say greedy corporations affect communities more than the thugs and delinquents who often reside in urban areas. At least with the the thugs and delinquents they are fairly localized. When companies decide to slash jobs because of the economy, greed, or even go out of business, the repercussions are felt by thousands, if not millions. Now mind you, I AM NOT CONDONING OR EXCUSING CRIMINAL ACTS OR BEHAVIOR. It's wrong! I am simply saying that the woes of America are not even mostly tied to "non-Asian minorities."
