...and another thing. Industrialism harms earth in many ways. What is/was wrong with people living more at peace with nature? Does that necessarily make them dumb? I think you might want to read up on people like the Mayans and their knowledge of astrology. I think several of those guys involved with that are obviously more intelligent than some of you who think you're better than somebody else because you know how to use a remote control and DVD player!!

I'm a young adult african-american, and I have no excuses for young black and mexican criminals. If you break the law, then you should suffer the consequences. I also believe you should work for what you want. I was taught to work for what I want and the older males in my family didnt believe in the gov'n or anybody else taking care of their family and themselves.

But.....here is where the racism comes in. Yeah, there are a higher % of blacks and mexicans on welfare and committing violent crimes, therefore more cause for concern in those 2 communities, but the fact of the matter is there are still MORE white people on welfare in total numbers.

So, you have a problem with all the minorities on welfare and breaking the law, but no problem with the whites who do it as well, even though they represent an even HIGHER amount in total???

Sounds racist to me.

Let me give you an example. If there are 6000 white people and 2000 mexicans in a city and 2000 of the whites are on welfare as opposed to 1000 of mexicans.....yes...I agree there should be MORE concern for the mexican community.......but why would it be that you ONLY have a problem with those 1000 mexicans abusing the system...and not those 2000 whites doing the same???

I'm not on welfare and I'm not a criminal. My intermediate family and myself all work and contribute to society and have college degrees (or currently in school working on it ...*me*)...........but I do know and see plenty of white people in Jones County "leeching" off the system? Are you telling me I need to go back to Africa (a place I've never been to in my life, so I dont know how I can go back to where I have not been anyway) even though I am being a positive member of society and that you have no problem with the "leeching" type of whites I just described....all because of the color of my skin? lol Yeah ok.

It's one thing to want something done about illegals, law breakers and welfare leeches but it's another thing to use those things to promote racism.
Blacks are 13% of the population, hence they're smaller in the total crime population, but they still contribute anywhere near 40% of all crimes. Per-capita, they are over 8 times more likely to commit a violent crime.

lol It seems like what you read must have went right over your head. I never said it wasnt, did I?

Let me state another example.

Lets say there is a city with 35,000 whites and 3,000 are criminal, and lets say this same city has 10,000 blacks and 2,000 are criminal.

Yes, the black crime rate would be higher. Yes, there would be more concern and likelihood for a black to be a criminal than a white.

What I'm asking is why would you ONLY have a problem with the black crime? So the 3,000 white criminals would get a pass because the overall crime rate among whites is lower, and the decent hard working blacks would automatically have to suffer and be identified with the criminal blacks because the black crime rate is higher?

All mexicans arent illegal, and all blacks arent criminals and on welfare............just as all southern whites arent trailer hicks and othe stereotypes that go along with that.

You cant judge INDIVIDUALS based off GROUP statistics, and if you try to do so then thats racist.

Oh, I think this one has run it's course. We're deviating into stuff that has little if anything to do with the original idea of the thread. Poof - closed.
