I may be wrong but I think he implied that Obama got elected because the black segment of the population would vote for Obama...if so I hope this would be true for Mr.Herman Cain as well, but since Mr.Cain is not promising something for nothing I doubt it.

BTW - I dont support any candidate yet...though I do like Dr.Paul a bit more than the rest. I guess I am racist, no wait I cant be I am American/Iranian so you cant say I am racist or attack me : ) j/k

Its interesting, in Latin america they are more racist than American's, in the Middle East they are more racist than American's and in Asia well obviously they are, but its always the Americans that get the grunt of it on this forum...

Even if he did imply it ,as another poster pointed out, how many white people didn't vote for Obama just because he was half black. They had exit polls where people flat out stated I'm not ready for a black President.

This is the equivalent of damning all white middle aged men because Lehman Brothers executives are white, middle aged men.

What is happening with all the white executives?

It's obvious they are just thugs.

They have everything, but they want more...

I'm sick of hearing that being politically correct is destroying our society.

That's just good ol' boy propaganda.

It's this archaic bull[snip] about 'low life thugs' and the importance placed on the amount of melatonin in someone's skin that needs to go.

No role models, no education, no direction.

It is virtually impossible for a person in third generation poverty to get out of it.

Education is not equal yet, and until it is, prepare yourselves for more of the same...

Guess I should supply sources : )

China - www.thechinaexpat.com...
" Racism against black people may be the strongest form of racism in China. "

Middle-East - www.thegrio.com...

Plenty of sources beyond this...

I may not agree with your argument but I 100% agree with you saying "I am tired of being PC"... Political Correctness really makes me mad...

Perhaps most are not aware but this isn't anything new. It was popular in the 80's in NY, perpetrated by such gangs as the Decepticons and the Lo's.

And no, you do not want to have doors that auto lock the stores because clerks and customers will be getting severe arse whippins...

LMAO ... I find this hilarious because you are actually on point with this stereotype and you've probably never even seen it first hand. I live in Brooklyn, New York a couple blocks away from 'the projects' an I do see these types of things first hand. Some them would go hungry and pay no light bills just to get new sneaks and a new cell phone There's really no excuse, it's about to be 2012 my people need to wake the f@#$ up.


But at the same time NATO is doing the same. Keep pointing fingers maybe we'll all go blind in the end

The truest post thus far...

I half agree. Kids do have the desire to steal stuff, and they sometimes act on it. I disagree that this is just a different method of "same old same old."

Maybe it is though. Maybe I am just projecting my way of thinking onto people without justification for doing so. I was raised and many of the people I know were raised not to take things that arent yours, period. Even if you knew you would not get caught. If someone gives me too much change, and even if the ATM machine kicks me an extra $20, I give it back. I dont keep it.

Maybe most people really arent like that. It sure didnt seem that way to me growing up. I knew people like that, (who would steal if they thought they would not get caught) but the majority of people I knew were not like that. The majority of people I knew and grew up with, especially the adults, didnt steal for internal reasons, not out of fear of getting caught.

i hope to NEVER meet you in real life
Being as your from New York I seriously doubt that you will, New Yorkers have been known to disappear around here. I work in the worst parts of Birmingham every day. I remodel rental houses mostly section eight houses. These young blacks have been taught that they are owed something. The black churches and organizations such as the naacp teach them how to work the system to get more and more for free..cause we have been oppressed...lol give me a break. A black person nowadays has a better chance at getting a civil service job or a government job than does a white man. Here all that works for the state is blacks. Thats why these young people do this because they think they are owed something. they shouldnt have to work for what they want just steal it its owed to me !




Rush Limbaugh couldn't have said it better himself...and you believe that crap...

How the heck do you work in section 8 homes and declare that the residents have more than you? A blatant lie, same as the Reagan "Welfare Queen" illusion he created. So the residents get a income tax check every year and with it buy EVERYTHING nice they will have for a year, ie, flat screen tv, dvd, ipod, etc.

You and I have jobs and can do these things when we want, we don't have to wait for a income tax check (which before you start is given to them because they're so poor, instead of paying taxes they're owed a refund).

I'm black, and I don't recall anyone EVER telling me I'm owed anything...has any other black person witnessed this?

More lies from a racist bigot: "The black churches and organizations such as the naacp teach them how to work the system to get more and more for free..cause we have been oppressed" that's a G.D. lie! Most black people have never contacted the naacp and I've never attended a church where the sermon was "How to get approved for Welfare".

Your posts show just how racist, uneducated and paranoid you are.

And I still stand by what I posted earlier.

The PC process makes the situation worse. By not reporting this in the news, by not chasing these people committing these crimes down and punishing them, and getting the word out that they are getting hit with heavy penalties, they are only encouraging this activity.

The whole PC claim about aiming to heal racial tensions only serves to make them worse.

PC is part of the divide and conquer plan, always has been.

I think Jimnuggits said it best with the problem being, "no role models, no education, no direction"! And though Jimnuggits puts emphasis on education, I would put emphasis on role models and direction. Even education can be used for bad without good role models and direction once they're educated. So, maybe the bigger question is...why doesn't anyone want to become a good role model any more? Can you say SELFISH??? That is the underlying problem and no one cares enough to do anything about it...and that, my friends, is the sad reality!!!

I should mention the friend I was hanging out was poor...poor white trash neighborhood is a good enough description of it (white hood?). in my upper middle class residence, such things would not even be considered...but in that neck of the woods, things are different. For him, it might have been the norm, based on having nothing except temptation everywhere...for me, it was just the thrill of the moment overall...

poverty tends to make people look at laws different...

Had to read this entire thread to get my laughs...

Look, if you think this is a result of anything but economics you're (I'm sorry to say) STUPID. When you show me rich kids flash mobbing, then I'll apply the label to a group....maybe.

Some of you so stupid, just because the kids have on decent clothes and aren't starving you assume they're doing well. NEWS FLASH...we live in different times now! This isn't the Depression of the 30's, even a poor homeless person can be clean and have decent clothes.

Really, all most of you are doing (funny) is showing myself and others how racist you are. Proving that racism didn't die just because we elected a half-black president.

Last thing, have none of you never been a child? More than likely this started as fun or something to do. Yeah some of them sell what they take, but many probably give it away. This is something for youth with no jobs or activities to do.
