Give me an example of a 'voting law' in North Carolina that is "racist" against blacks. You can't.
I wouldn't say racist as much as disenfranchise. And i never said racist. I like to have solid proof when tossing that accusation around. When the Supreme Court got rid of a certain law, the Republicans immediately started pushing through changes. And what go me most incensed is that they are going to remove early registration. Cenk on TYT breaks it down.
[Disclaimer: Ignore his claims of racism. Just listen to the changes they want to make and i'm not talking asking for an ID]
State lawmakers in the current legislative session are expected to pass bills that would stop same-day voter registration, reduce the early-voting period, end balloting on the Sunday before Election Day
That's what they are doing. In a democracy that values the vote then when are they going so far to slow down anyone that wishes to vote?
It's money. That allows you to climb that social economic ladder.
Is not "'only allows you to climb the social ladder". What did I say? I said it allows you to climb that social economic ladder.
you failed to make the connection in how one acquires the money. People do not magically wish for it. They have to be educated (at least somewhat) and work for it, unless they are born into royalty.
What connection? You can make money a variety of ways, legal or illegal if that is your goal. Master P didn't have an advanced education. It's opportunity.
how much bling and money they have
how many ---- they can sleep with
how many n----s they can kill
the quality of drugs they can sell
I agree! But we can't let the actions of the few define the whole. I have yet to see anyone bother with the black middle class and their views on what's going on. All we hear and read are the emphasis on those poor blacks, whose situation is no different than other cultures living in poverty. Do those cultures emphasize what you mention? I don't know you'd have to look at each one individually.
You say that Republicans are to blame???(more liberal 'blame game').
I never said that, your letting your political bias cloud your judgement. I said Republicans are playing black folks. I have no idea how you got "being racist" from "playing". You jumped to that conclusion not me.
As long as blacks do not vote Republican, they can never blame the Republican Party for their social issues.

Rockpuck. I would add a little to your post, but it needs nothing. Consise & to the point. But that demographic of our society will be the way they are 50 generations into the future. Some want let it go ever.....and they spread that mindset to their offspring, who repeat the process with their offspring, etc,etc, etc. That demographic of our society is the main reason racism is alive and well in their own community......It will never end,ever.

The fact of the matter is that ALL people need healing not just the black community.
We can’t blame the black community for young white men going into schools and killing everything they can, something that is an epidemic in the white community.
Do we go around labeling that issue?
A WHITE PROBLEM?
Is all the Wall street banditry that damn near destroyed the world economy A WHITE PROBLEM, since just about 100 percent of the people who did that were white?
Crime in the black community is an AMERICAN PROBLEM
As the above issues are AMERICAN issues
