Well Mississippi has the highest percentage of black people. That's why it matters.

This is what I meant in my earlier posts. It's all the fault of white communities, you say? How are you helping the situation? Sounds to me like you are making it worse.

Come on, man. Move past all that crap. There are no conspiracies. The only person who suffers is the one who harbors the negative thoughts, whether that's you or the alleged bigots you speak of.

I didn't say anything about placing fault. I'm simply be respectful to everyone i encounter in real life. I hope you realized that I'm speaking on those that refuse to let it go. When you have websites like Stormfront, N*****mania, etc harboring and promoting those bigoted views than it's still remain a cultural issue. What have you done to discouraged those type of bigotry?

You're part of the problem. What have you done to expel white bigots from your community? I can probably tell, nothing. You like most southern whites have your head buried in the sand and the racial divide. South white people never want to talk about their prejudices. Their answers are always what you replied. "Get over it." But Sharif is correct, it's not just a southern problem, it's a American problem.

Yeah, I get it but it seems like all white people are always labeled as bad, similar to your point above. You say one thing, but you tell me it means another.

For one, I don't go to those sites. Not sure what else you can do, I don't know the owners. I'm fair with everyone in real life. I don't have any power and I don't really have anything to give.

I think it's how you might interpret my statements.

Some potholes in Jackson are so big that they have their own zip code.
