One thing about the drug dealing is this. There are considerable number of Black people dealing drugs, but they aren't the ones shipping it. The drugs are being shipped in from Mexico. Drugs have also been shipped in from South America.

Drugs do some horrible things. So far, the way it has been handled, it hasn't worked. It makes one wonder this. Why so some people use drugs in the first place? If people didn't use drugs, then the demand for them would go down and then that would curtail the problem. So far, prison hasn't solved that problem.
It's not just black inner cities being targetted by the very evil drug cartels -- I was shocked to find out the level of overdoes and drug violence and suicides on the Indian reservations, they tribal leaders are helpless and can only sit by and watch their children die.

Guess we can forget condemning those who intoxicated them with whisky to take advantage and profit --- now it's the Mexicans doing it --- and no one, particularly not the liberals cares at all. Same with the disadvantaged in the inner cities. No one is going to do a thing about it. They'll continue to die.

Mexican Pot Gangs Infiltrate Indian Reservations in U.S. - WSJ.com

Mexico-based cartels exploit several conditions unique to reservations, starting with chronically understaffed tribal police departments. Overlapping jurisdictions between tribal courts and outside agencies -- from the local sheriff to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration -- confuse the issue of who should take the lead in prosecuting crimes.

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.
This isn't about you....but you are an anomaly in todays black "culture".

No I don't. That's a straw man and a particularly amateur one at that.

He's not an anomaly. The problem is, the media chooses to mostly focus on gang bangers, and not black men like him, therefore you believe that his particular traits are not the norm for black men.

Based on your comments, you believe that behavior is determined by skin color. In your mind, blacks love to partake in crime and violence, because they are black. You don't seem to understand that poor people in general have limited opportunities and many often get caught up with whatever their particular community values and views as the norm. On the South side of Chicago, the norm is gang banging, so many of the people in those communities, accept it as normal and the children grow up to view it as a way of life.

Since many from the inner city lack proper male role models, they only know what they see, and what the majority of people in their community engage in, and that's largely what they grow up to emulate and become.

If the children from the South side were placed in stable middle class homes that taught good values, the children would mostly grow up to mirror the values that were espoused by their parents and the larger community.

No I am not. You are not to say whether or not I am an anomaly. You choose to focus on the worst.

If you don't think skin color determines criminal behavior than why do you think blacks commit a disproportionate amount of crimes? Give me a straight answer here, no dodging the question.

I seriously believe he thinks race makes a person more criminal. I haven't heard anything further from said person after you asked this question.

It certainly seems he thinks that way, but won't admit it for some reason.
