And they moan things will never get better, is there any wonder. I'm affraid the only racism i see nowadays comes from the black community who are living in the past still and blaming the white folk for what happened generations ago. When this turns ugly, and it will, who will end up with the blame???
You are being really naive if you think that is all that is going on. Living in the past? Black youth feel helpless and hopeless from what is going on today. 1) They have the highest unemployment rates than other races- The jobless rate for black teens has consistently been higher than any other demographic since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began publishing results in 1972. 2)They have the highest incarceration rates than any other race -disparties in prison sentences. Among the findings: Blacks in the United States are imprisoned at more than five times the rate of whites, and Hispanics are locked up at nearly double the white rate, according to a study released Wednesday by a criminal justice policy group. The worst of the states: In five states - Iowa, Vermont, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Wisconsin - African Americans are incarcerated at more than ten times the rate of whites. 3) They have the highest death rates than any other race. Although cancer deaths have declined for both Whites and African Americans/Blacks living in the United States, African Americans/Blacks continue to suffer the greatest burden for each of the most common types of cancer American White women have the highest incidence rate for breast cancer, although African American/Black women are most likely to die from the disease.African American/Black men have the highest incidence rate for prostate cancer in the United States and are more than twice as likely as White men to die of the disease It's not about poverty. It's not about teenage pregnancy. It's not about use of drugs. … If you self-identify as black, there's a greater chance your baby will be born before full term and be too small." Nearly 600 babies in New Jersey died before their first birthday in 2007, the most recent year for which figures are available. Of these, 194 were black and 180 were white, even though black women accounted for only one in eight births. For every 1,000 live births in the state, 11.2 black babies and 3.4 white babies died. This is TODAY, not in the past. I am not saying what they did is right, I condemn what they did- I am just saying I understand...edit on 5-8-2011 by summerbreeze.ddp because: (no reason given)

That was my comment about the replacement of the traditional role of a father in the AfAm community by 'Big Daddy' governernment under the guise of 'help' by LBJ's 'Great Society' plan of the 1960s.
Nothing has done more to destroy urban neighborhoods by the destruction of nuclear family. It was/is more beneficial to be a 'single mom' (financially) than it was to be a steuggling (in the early years of marriage) blue collar family. The loss was the gains that any working their way up family makes (their children going educationally farther/better employment in the next generation) for the constant of a welfare state.
Personal accountability was replaced by government program largesse.

But remember, here in the United States we're a melting pot, we have to welcome everyone and assimilate to what they want, right?
But you have a point. A very valid, very real point that many people will decry as 'isolationist'.
It's not isolationist, it's nationalist. God forbid we have people that still take pride in their country and hate to see it splitting apart, but hey "Diversity is a strength!!!"
How did that work for the Romans?
I thought so.

Admit the truth.
Black youth do nothing to improve their situation.
They've turned their schools and neighborhoods into zoos.
They deal in drugs and prostitution.
Then they blame it all on society not giving them a chance.
What a load of horse***t.

We are NOTHING like North Korea.
If you want the US to be like Europe, that's your perogative. But what we have now is minority rule with majority rights when it was never meant to be that way.
Apologists/liberals will never understand because they have been so indoctrinated to hate anything remotely related to accountability and self-reliance.edit on 5-8-2011 by Dreine because: Typo.
