My "motives" are truth and transparency. What are yours?
The color of someone's skin isn't the reason why someone commits a crime, one has to look at a person's motive to better understand why before trying to address the real issues.

I've been trying to say that all day. However, it falls on deaf ears.

I wait hopefully that you guys, and people like you will rise up from the shadows an lead places like Detroit, Gary, Compton, Watts, Harlem, Memphis, Birmingham, New Orleans, Chicago, St. Louis, etc... into returning to being prosperous places where people want to live instead of fleeing.
I long for the day when my tax dollars no longer go into the never ending maw of Somalia or Haiti, when my nation is no longer bankrupt funding a population who prefers crime over work.

Let them prove me wrong by becoming productive law biding citizens who do no not need affirmative action or welfare.

So your agenda seeps through. You have a problem with Black people and you resent them.

We HAVE noticed that black people are more criminal, though.

Do you voice the same concerns about legacy candidates and rich persons, such as Bush, who received everything from mommy and daddy?

All I have seen you do is complain about Black people.

And by the way, I have never committed any crime, I don't have any kids out of wedlock, I have a college education, I'm looking for a job and trying to weather this economy, so you can't speak for me.

He falsely believes that skin color determines behavior. In reality, it's community socialization which determines overall behavioral traits and one's identity.

I feel the same way about the situation. I've read some of his posts and I can say that I agree with you.
