Look, im not racist at all. But I wanted to ask this question wich is been bugging me for quite some time about African Americans and crime.
Now im not saying ALL african americans are criminals or anything like that, because clearly there is african american cops, lawyers, doctors etc.
But I just looked up statistics on crimes in the us and there is an average of 1 white person per 4 african americans in jail. Not only that, when I
drive down the street in my neighborhood, I see black thugs walking down the road, a few mexan thugs every now and then and every once i a while ill
see a white thug dude. When I watch stuff on tv about murders and such, the murders are usually caused by african americans on african americans.
When you watch Cops, the majority of the videos are concerning african american criminals. When you see documentaries of people in jail, the majority
of the people on tv in the cells are black. I guess this is just a big concern for me and what I want to know is why this is the case. Does it go
back to slavery days? Or is it because of the rap and hiphop culture that the youth have listened too all their life that raps about how slangin
drugs and smakin hoes is ok? Please let me know what your thoughts are on this.
