There has been a lot of talk about "The Black Community" in recent weeks. Can anyone show me, on a map, where this community is located?
In your head, they seem to be renting a housing project.

I think "black community" is a dumbass term that assumes all black people think and act the same way. At least in the way you're using it.

It's easy to find.
Go to any large city and ask a resident "what is one area that I should not be in after the sun goes down?".
Not saying that to be mean or insensitive but prove me wrong
But even in the best used manner, it intimates a separation. I cant accept that. All men our my brothers, even the assholes i dont like

Mate, if somebody has to explain to you how systemic and cultural racism has influenced American society since it's inception then no matter what anybody says here, you're going to feel all butt hurt and "reeeee" to anything anybody says thats not in agreement with you, I think you're maybe looking for a slightly different type of website where members wear a more whiteish style of garment and all agree with hating on the "Black-man"

if I show you white neighborhoods where the same applies, would you tweak that statement, or adjust the stats or try rewording the whole thing to make it seem like even though, there may be dangerous white neighborhoods , it's predominantly black neighborhoods that are most dangerous...; to which I would agree
when black people make it, they move away from blacks and closer to white suburbs.
but I still take your point, minus puting a race under a microscope.
when it's convenient... 'there are bad guys on both sides' excuse would be in place of the drivel as above.
so yes, that's what they're protesting. that's what president bush said and he never been more honest.
so, there are white neighborhoods where you don't take a stroll at night.. your reduction to just blacks is part of what people are sick of.
