As for the poster who thinks minority parents do not care, I would have chosen jail over the wrath of most of the black mothers I released juveniles to. That is just my experience.
Since everyone seems to be ignoring your GOOD post, I thought it needed to be quoted again... All I can say to it is, I agree!

Maybe not. But if I had to guess what type of people they're attempting to take back their streets from, they won't get too far with hymns, please and thankyous.

Re: Poles, Irish, Italian etc. - Yes there was crime to a degree but in one or two generations the Euros prospered and made sure their kids took advantage of education and they worked and fought their way out of the slums. And this was long before Pres. Johnson's "Great Society" programs.

Your post pointed out a major contributor to black crime when you mentioned the fear of being released to their mother. No mention of the father. As I stated earlier, with a 70% illigitimate birth rate, and a shortage of men feeling obligated raise their children, no culture is going anywhere but downhill. Even if you shovel wheelbarrows full of money at the problem.

Question This is a stupid Issue!!!

Man Kills Man!

It doesn't matter what color you are!

White's where killing white's for centuries!!! Roman Empire. Greek Empire. German Empire (Hitler). Russian (Stalin). American Empire (Civil War).

Did we call that White on White crimes?

Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!!!

Man continues to try to dominate the world, regardless of race!

Start calling it man on man violence!

Yes, a culture without fathers (as opposed to baby daddy's) is doomed.
