so...
going by your logic if we were a nation of intelligent individuals then how could someone like bush have made it into office back in 2001-2009?


I just can not compare the two

I mean you kinda just said having a black president is dumb

their skin color has zero to do with the fact that the majority of america is white. and the majority of white americans hate black americans...

and ill say it again presidents are puppets. let me break down what that means for you. it is all a facade. the people have no say over what happens in government. the puppets are shifted around in terms or white, black, democratic, republican and the next up will be a woman (to appeal to various demographics in america. to give a false sense of hope and that their voice matters.

does that make sense to you?

The main problem with the black community is they believe all of their social ills can be solved by a politician. The only ones that can set the blacks on a proper social course are blacks themselves.
I think their problem is they don't which is why they don't vote, not that just voting would solve all problems, but you have to at least vote. and also do non violent protest. BLM is just a few grifters asking for donations on twitter tho.

Done a lot of testing to confirm the majority of the country hates black Americans have you?

That statement sort of reveals more about you than anything else.

btw go on any youtube video or online news article about these subjects and just scroll down to the comments. you will see tons of savory commentary about how we need to go back to segregation in schools. about people being monkeys, and apes, and this and that. and its the majority of comments. from the majority of white individuals.


The problem with the community is that it isn't a community. There is not community anymore.

You need strong families, strong faith communities and strong neighborhoods. You don't see that operating in most black communities. There is no concept of family which is why so many young men wind up in gangs. They're looking for daddy and wind up raising each other and do a poor job of it since none of them really know how to be a man. You're neighborhoods are defined by your gangs. And then you have the churches, but what are they going to do up against the other two?

It's chaos with little to no real cohesive community.

And it's what they want to replicate for the rest of the country because it's created a society of weak, ignorant, easily ruled individuals who only care about whether or not the government check arrives. They haven't got the will to seriously resist the system anymore. They can be ruled and ruled brutally and the only backlash is the occasional riot where they burn down their own neighborhoods. It's ineffective.

I look at every white person walking down the street and think to myself "I bet he thinks about how much he hates black people all day long"

Then I realized I'm crazy and can't read peoples thoughts


man this type of rethotric is exactly why our country is doomed to be divided forever

Uncle sam does not like black fathers. black fathers matter

You see if a woman divorces a man then they can live rent free.

If you had no home of your own the process might look like a route to provide if you had children.

im not even black. or white...however i will state that i am able to observe how both sides behave. and i can tell you that as someone who does not belong exclusively to any particular race it easier for me to see where the actual problem lies and who is perpetuating a large amount of hate adding fuel to the fire.

commentary like yours does zero to solve the problem and only makes things worse. young men or children lets call them what they are since most are under the age of 18 act out because of their surroundings and what they are raised to believe about themselves...

if you keep kicking a tiger in a cage for long enough soon enough he will break free and wreak havoc on everyone

that is a metaphor btw...

i belive white privilege is absolutely a thing. i believe that it is possible to succeed but how can you succeed when everyone around you works to tear you down? why can we uplift people. stop police harassment. stop discriminatory and inflammatory remarks. work harder to pay teachers more, make education free and a top priority, educate kids in these hostile environments. educate parents AS WELL...i believe knowledge is power and that we are not doing enough to lift each other up.

all we do is listen to news stories which are specifically selected and put out one right after another to form an opinion about a certain race and then we go on from there forming negative opinion after negative opinion about them until we are completely divided as a nation. like now.

Ketsuko, this whole bit is nothing more than your rather obviously personal opinion.

To make such sweeping generalizations is intellectually repulsive to say the least.

You guys are aware the the entire American Black community doesn't live in Cabrini Green circa 1978, right?

A few random examples ...

Ten of the Richest Black Communities in America

Black Community - How to Live your Best Life - AARP

African American Communities in West Virginia

I'd like to quote from the last source, as it specifically puts the lie to the idea that the entire Black Community consists of welfare queens and inner city thugs.



West Virginia is home to nearly 60,000 African Americans. The African American community has a rich and diverse history in West Virginia dating to the early settlement period prior to the Civil War. Some of the older communities include those in the Eastern Panhandle and around Charleston. The majority of African American communities in the state originated during the coal mining boom in the late 1800's and early 1900's. After the Civil War, many blacks left the Southern states for work in the coal mines of West Virginia. This period of relocation gave rise to many of West Virginia's older rural black communities as well as contributing to the growing communities in the larger cities.

West Virginia is currently home to a vibrant African American population with strong regional communities and numerous statewide organizations reflecting a network for all aspects of black culture. Individuals and groups are actively involved in the promotion of African American heritage through organizations, community events, and festivals throughout the state. In West Virginia there are African American historical societies, heritage museums, and traditional music festivals as well as community action groups, performance ensembles, academic research facilities, and arts organizations. This report provides merely an introduction to a few of the many facets of the diverse African American community in West Virginia.

Spiritual life is a significant element of the black community and an important part of the history of the black community in West Virginia. Church life has been a major focus for as long as the black communities have existed. As a source of both unity and heritage, the churches provide opportunities for spiritual and social activities which regularly bring family and community together. Important church functions include day-long Sunday programs, weekly socials, and annual homecoming celebrations which provide a weekend of events for the extended church community. Most black churches have Men's Days and Women's Days which include a special Sunday morning service, a meal shared with the church community, and an afternoon of socializing. Gospel music is an important part of church and community, and West Virginia is home to several nationally recognized gospel performers and festivals. African American churches in many communities throughout the state are involved with activities encouraging positive race relations and cross-cultural awareness.


... and this goes on and on and on ... as far as personal knowledge, I live in an Atlanta neighborhood near Emory University. Not more than 3 blocks away in almost any direction, I could show you multiple strong, cohesive African American communities, with full families intact, that have great churches as the centers of their communities.

Ketsuko, your post is really uninformed. I really wish you'd actually learn something about the actual American Black Community, rather than learning everything in the Right-Wing Echo Chamber.

Most welfare and social service funds go to white people in Red states.

Well obviously that is not the wealth that you pointed out in your post.

I never believed that Obama was referring to social programs when he said it.

Which post? Which part of which post? Quote it and let's see what you're talking about.

Interesting that you have no problem (apparently) with "wealth redistribution" to white Republicans, eh?

So ... no back up from anything I said for your previous outlandish claim that I had said something about Mr. Obama.

Sometimes I really wonder about you ... you do realize that I posted the link in response to an insipid claim that all Black communities are chaotic cesspools of crime ... or do you?

As usual, you make little to zero sense in your comments to me.
