I'm getting sick and tired of people claiming "unemployment" as the reason blacks are more likely to commit crimes.
Stealing watches, sneakers, electronics, etc. is NOT the result of unemployment. The only times you could blame unemployment is for the people stealing sandwiches... and even then it probably isn't the case. I'm currently unemployed, and I haven't walked into a store and stolen a TV...
Just what we need too, another "waa waa the blacks can't find jobs even WITH affirmative action! Let's give employers MORE incentive to discriminate against more qualified white, and hand jobs to minorities!!!"
It's sickening. Quit begging for handouts, because sooner or later the only handout you'll get it a closed fist across your face.

Whats ironic here is this is EXACTLY the same behavior you are seeing from the banksters and Wall street criminals. They get together in a group, target something to steal, then rob en mass. Except their flash mobbing is on a global scale. It isn't lost on the common man. I think these people see the hypocrisy of going to prison for stealing a pack of cigarettes and getting little or no punishment for stealing literally billions. They figure if some thug in a thousand dollar suit can rob a bank from behind a desk, why cant they walk into a store and just take what they want? I don't agree with it, but I understand the rationale. If the people on the top of the pyramid have no morals, why should anyone not expect a reaction from the "peasants"? If a civilization leads by corruption, at some point the corruption will permiate the entire society. Its already happening. Buy a car lately? You almost cant buy anything anymore without someone robbing you. Theft has become institutionalized.

You sound like you may not be American.
History is very relevant to this issue. Any American knows that.
Our particular history is an aggravating factor and, despite the fact that no one living is a slave owner, blacks hold that history against whites.
Yes, history IS relevant.
In the US, the history of slavery IS very relevant. Blacks in this country hold a grudge against whites.
As a citizen at the sharp end of this, I speak from experience. Before I retired, I had numerous clients who let me know exactly where black hatred of whites is rooted.
