OMG, thank you. That is exactly what I've been trying to say. Those examples are statistically aberrant.

being racist, but black people automatically are innocent and have
to be proven to be racist?
THAT is racist!
I don't think that the mexican-american population votes republican. I'll have to look up stats ... but I'm pretty sure it's like the black population...democrat and social giveaways.
The president of Mexico is sending people hereby the tens of thousands every day. He's quietly invading America. He KNOWS that when there are more Mexicans in California, New Mexico,and Arizona ... he knows that they'll want to either open wide the flood gates and let in all their mexican brethren or they will just annex those states back to Mexico.
The Mexican government SENDS their non-wage-earning people here. They know that if they are here, then their government doesn't have to pay for their welfare, their medical care, their child care, their anything. He's sending his criminals here .. his gangs here ... his dregs here.
He's dumping them here so he doesn't have to fix his own darn country.
Supposedly the Muslims in this country are being asked to join in.
I don't buy what worldnutdaily says ... but in this case I'm going to
do some checking. Obviously the Mexican invasion is good for
the radical muslim terrorists ... so common sense says that they
would loooooooove to see a war between the USA and Mexico.

2.The racially disproportionate nature of the war on drugs is not just devastating to black Americans. It contradicts faith in the principles of justice and equal protection of the laws that should be the bedrock of any constitutional democracy; it exposes and deepens the racial fault lines that continue to weaken the country and belies its promise as a land of equal opportunity; and it undermines faith among all races in the fairness and efficacy of the criminal justice system. Urgent action is needed, at both the state and federal level, to address this crisis for the American nation."

4. "When total incarceration rates are estimated separately by age group, black males in their twenties and thirties are found to have high rates relative to other groups. Among the more than 2.1 million offenders incarcerated on June 30, 2004, an estimated 576,600 were black males between ages 20 and 39 (table 13). "Among males age 25 to 29, 12.6% of blacks were in prison or jail, compared to 3.6% of Hispanics and about 1.7% of whites (table 14).
"Although incarceration rates drop with age, the percentage of black males age 45 to 54 in prison or jail in 2004 was an estimated 4.5% -- more than twice the highest rate (1.7%) among white males (age 30 to 34)."

how you prove that you're innocent of being racist.
Is that really true what you said about Mexicans?
posted by NotClever: “I've learned an important lesson in this thread. Forget a reasoned discussion about race relations. One, the knee-jerk posts are impossible to counter or rebut, and two, it seems when the subject matter comes up, people puke out the first thing that comes to mind and then "click," they shut their brain off. [Edited by Don W]
If its possible to judge a person's character from their posts here, I'll follow ceci around. And a quick comment about education. That's hilarious, coming from someone who is confusing ethnicity with race. This is a subject more properly discussed face-to-face. Not hiding behind the anonymity of a username.

“ . . Why should I be more understanding towards someone who uses the N word without ill effect, but immediately view me as a sadistic racist part of the KKK just for being white? Everyone, everywhere has their favorite off colored jokes about another’s race or belief system. Everyone everywhere has their own opinions towards another group of people based on looks or customs or color. Even you do, and don't try and BS everyone here by claiming you don't. So before you sit there and attack what she says as being racist, check yourself first mate. [Edited by Don W]
