Race card hustlers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are not going to be out of a job and the the crime/murder rate in the innercity is not going to plummet just because Barack is going to be in the white house. Blacks will always be vastly overrepresented in the prison population no matter who is running this country.

Ya know Splinter, this may be the first time I agree with you......

Hard work (and NOT the race card, as some of you Obama haters love to bring up) pays off.

I work in prison too. They all say, just like the white offenders, that they are in prison because they were wrongly convicted. They are ALL innocent. HA HA! Yeah right.

If you have any more stereotypes, save them for Rush Limbaugh.
