I wouldn't go to the extent though to call it a "Ghetto" because it's not that bad, like Chicago or even New York.

Compared to Glen Allen though, it is poor... Glen Allen is rich kids, mostly white. We have 1 High School in Glen Allen, it's Deep RUn, & it's 85-90% white all of whom have money, their parents are mainly lawyers & real estate or businessmen, i know because i am a junior there
So now just black people dont care about education? Swear some of the people here.

Let's not pretend like black kids put in a more effort percentage wise than white kids. Just like black people commit more murders percentage wise than white people do. That's not racist, it's obvious. Black people make up a way larger percentage of nba players so they must be more gifted percentage wise, right? Is that racist?

I can assure you that white people have been the most murderous people in the world over the last 500 years. Killing way more people as a group than black people. Is that racist? Or obvious.

We now live it what you might call a civilized country. 500 years ago things were a lot different. In today's day it really is not necessary to need to kill anybody in the United States. Maybe under certain circumstances it might be the only choice. Gang shootings and shootings involving robberies and drugs are not a huge issue with the white race.

Poverty and Socioeconmic status is the biggest reason for those crimes. Just 100 years ago, there was all types of those crimes commiited by Irish and Italian gangs. Read up on your history.

Hell, less than that. The Westies are known as one of the most violent and ruthless gangs in NYC history and their reign was the 1970's-1980's. Whitey Bulger was also running Boston at that time and The Italian Mafia in Philly was blowing up porches/cars and assassinating people left and right haha.

Blacks still make up a small percentage of the population and commit most of the murders. It's 2013 and I do not see any signs that its going to balance out race wise. If you can't get your act together in a country where the most powerful man is black than your not trying too hard. I mean where else does a black person go on this planet where they would have better opportunity than the United States? I would like to see the black community do well but if a Blackman being president is not motivation than what is?
