so, because you lived in a nice neighborhood means that race is responsible for crime? i live in an all white neighborhood too, right now, and i can tell you there is enough crime. It is a wealthy area, so its nothing major, but it exists, and is mostly commited by the white residents (because there arent any others)
If you think race is a contributing factor, then you only think your thinking. Race has nothing to do with a persons sense of decency, it is the conditions from where they came. we are 99.9% identical in the genome across all races, are you positng that the trivial difference makes some people more criminal then others?
On a small scale, any idea can work. Your nice little white town, sall population, of course there will be very little crime. But if you have a whole nation full of white people, different classes and different conditions, you will still be faced with as many criminals and gang members as if there were a minority group.
Poor white people are no more decent then poor black people, it is all a matter of power and control. If the white people at the top of the power chain would relinquish some of that power and control to the lower classes, we would have a much more decent scenario.
you cannot blame race for crime. it is ignorant, and ignoring the social factors that are entirely to blame. White americans have built, in their history, a concrete advantage that drags on the countries minorities to this day.
You see crime where you see conditions for it, and in those places you see those who have been conditioned for crime. Its a vicious cycle.

My problem is the way of life is changing. Whether people will admit the painful truth or not, minorities lag behind in many aspects of life (higher crime rates, lower income, lower education levels, etc etc), and it isn't due to institutionalized racism.
Given the rates of "minorities" on social assistance programs, the question posed by a previous poster must be answered: Who will be the one funding the ever increasing costs associated with a growing minority population?
Are you white? If so, please answer this question honestly:
You and your family are driving down the road and your car breaks down. Where would you feel more comfortable at? breaking down in a white part of town, or a minority part of town?
Hell, even Jesse Jackson said he doesn't feel as nervous when he sees a group of whites walking towards him as he does when he sees a group of blacks.

Looks like a race to the bottom of the stupid barrel.
I grew up in an all 99.9 percent white ,protestant,catholic,jewish middle class suburban community in the 50s and 60s. Folks we didnt have murders ,rapes or violent crime there in any significant numbers. I cant remember any.
Murder rates in the U.S. per 100,000
The current rates of violent crime in the bad neighborhoods/cities is
like a war zone. The gang violence is incomprehensible to normal
people. It is terrorism. Phoenix now has the second highest kidnap
rate in the world, first being Mexico city.
If you cant admit that Race might play a factor than you simply have surrendered your ability to think. 5% of the people think,5% think they
think, and the other 90% would rather die than think.-Mark Twain.
And it is quite irrelevant if 90 percent of a population is good.
If 10 percent are bad you will have a serious problem.

I hear ya! The problem is, if they are coming here without skills and can't make much money/expecting a hand out, how long can the working class support them? The system will break eventually and then everyone will be saying WHAAAAAA!!! No one wants that, right?
