$5 says 3:00.

To the OP: Start all over. You want a nice neighborhood likely to stay nice in your price range. Leave skin tone issues out. Where is your job location (area, not exact address)? We will give you some neighborhoods.

I've never met a person who whined about being oppressed so much that ever accomplished much in life. Jews have seen possibly the most oppression in the last few centuries. They are stereotypically very successful. They don't whine about the past though. Just sayin...

Seriously though, don't even come at me like that though; this is a typical response from non-blacks.

If you don't understand; you never will. Case closed.
Too late, I already came at you like that...

...and yours is a non-response from an assertion that has no basis.

People like to paint us blacks as paranoid and cynical, but we know far too much and how the law works. Ignorance is very much still alive and the world is not colorblind.
While black paranoia has its roots in *some* facts (see the Tuskegee experiment and other similar events), I did not see any *real* evidence in the videos you posted that the US government was specifically going after blacks with crack-cocaine. Certainly, cocaine was used to fuel the Reagan *war* in Nicaragua. I doubt very much if the administration cared what color the victims of the drug traffic were. It was an economic war not a racist one, imo.

It is a shame that Gary Webb did not get the same kind of press that was given to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein and *that* may play into the idea that this is a racial divide as well.

Another part of this comes from the fact that there is much going on to bring attention to the abortion of black babies which is a shame, but has a lot to do with the controversies about birth control. Women who have less children can provide better lives for themselves and their families, but Planned Parenthood did have its original roots in a eugenic movement that is despicable. I support education and birth control, btw, but I understand why black people are suspicious of those who would have destroyed their race at one point in history.

The issues you are raising here are difficult and probably should be moved to another forum and a different thread.

and America was not imposed upon them, either. Can we say the same about blacks?
