But we weren't talking about white people. MOST ethnic groups in America patronize within their own communities FIRST....Asians, Hispanics, Africans, ethnic whites.

The person in the video is not here for me to debate. You are. What caused blacks not to finish high school, have kids out of wedlock and have single parent homes more than whites? Is it a carryover from African culture that blacks came to the US with?

Lil Wayne becoming the role model instead of Superman.

Yeah....just as I figured. You are scared to think past the superficial for what it might expose of yourself....so you deflect to a poor attempt at humor. The issues and gaps existed long before "lil Wayne" was even born.

Your posts reveal your true beliefs and there isn't an ounce of benevolence in them.

Soooo, we don't really have many facts other than some guys got in a fight and a dog got involved.

Well that and the OP sees racism everywhere and is well know for making excuses as to why their own racist views are ok due to their non-whiteness.

I didn't even need to click this thread to know black people were involved somehow. Glad to see the world really is as predictable as it always has been.

The fact of the matter is this. It's a free country. Black people survived slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, welfare, crack, and rap music. It's about time they start enjoying their success by living their lives as a success and stop being victims. If they are not willing to do so, so be it. I cannot and will not have any sympathy for any person who claims to be a victim while dealing drugs, smoking weed, living off the government, not learning how to read, not moving out of a dangerous area, etc etc.

I lived on the streets, I came from an abusive drug filled home full of racism, I've been to prison twice, I did and sold drugs, and at some point you have to draw a line in the sand and say enough is enough and get on with getting on or say woe is me, it's whitey's fault that I'm so poor and live off the government teet for the rest of your, life.





Either way you choose to go, the struggle is real. The hard fact is that 99.9% of all 360 million Americans don't give a crap about you and your struggle. We don't CARE enough about you to care whether or not you make a go out of life or not. We certainly are way too self absorbed in our own worlds to CARE about whether you're black or white, and we certainly don't CARE enough about you to even learn your name or what your situation is...

Anyone who screams racism is just looking for an excuse. I honestly could care less about what's going on in the inner cities like Baltimore or St. Louis. I may see it on the news from time to time, but I'm too busy on my own grind to care whether you think you're a victim or not...

I encourage this if only for people to experience what it is like to own a business. Then their opinions on what a business should do or shouldn't do will be better informed.
