"This also doesn't explain why Africans from the Caribbean and Africa have thrived as immigrants, or why Indians and other Asians have surpassed African-Americans in wealth. Today Hispanics are about to do the same. What it does tell me is that the African-American culture that glorifies thuggery, misogyny, racism, and denigrates education and hard work. Contrary to what PC thinking states, all cultures are not equal and I'd question the health of modern African-American culture."


africans and carribeans often are cream of the crop from those countries,same with asians and indians you should know this, the poor ones are still in those countries. Hispanics were not ripped away from there motherland and come here on their own but they should not be here illegally i say deport them and the Asians and whites who are here illegally.we are only 50 years out of jim crow and the enforcers and sympathizers of jim crow are still alive and teaching the kids and grand kids that mess.

you crying about black racism get real if you keep kicking somebody they going to hit you back that is human nature.


African-American culture that glorifies thuggery, misogyny, racism, this is racist claptrap middle class and rich blacks are not committing crime poor men of all races commit crime.misogyny? lol whites putting out more women degrading porn than anybody! thuggery the biggest thugs i have seen in my life are bush cheney and rumsfield how many folks dead in iraq because of their thuggery ?then you add the white collar crooks who are 99% white. sh*************t!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's face it, racism is alive and well among each ethic group. Heck most of those from the 1960's are still alive and well and have transferred attitudes and behaviors to their kids. Americans simply must get honest and deal with its soul, or it will only get worst. Legislation and laws does not erase prejudice attitudes and beliefs, but only exposed them. Because of technology those who abuse authority and try to hide behind corrupt laws will no longer be able to happen.

First of all this is not true at all. Most of the immigrants who come to this country receive loans for businesses and homes, a thing African American can't receive.

Hispanics can be any ethnic group from Latin America and also Latin Americans too. Latin Americans can be white and also might have been here for years amassing wealth.

You compared African Americans to Whites and Hispanics (who can be several different ethic groups combined); then compared African Americans to different Black ethic groups.

Are you comparing ethnicity or RACE???????????

Also Africans from the Caribbean and Africa immigrants come here with their own money. Poor people usually can't emigrate. The U.S. government is investing money to keep SOME of these countries poor by paying dictators and the higher ups in their society.

Being African didn't stop the NYPD from shooting Amadou Diallo 41 times. Their under same oppression when they come here too whether they know or not...........

Hold on, I'm black....but I didn't loot. I don't even live there. Are you saying that I'm apart of that too?

I'm white I'm not saying that.

I'm also not a member of the KKK and personally don't discriminate against blacks. Not that this matters, but my ancestors came over from Ireland and northern Europe, settled in places like New Jersey, Wisconsin and Iowa, and those that were of the age fought for the North in the Civil war. One died at the battle of Spotsylvania Court House. None owned slaves.

Because some whites have been racists and at one time some whites owned slaves does that make me a racist today?

I've gotten to the point in life where I don't judge if a stranger is racist or not. Not because racism doesn't exist but I don't care.

I find most people who are found to be racist are not a threat to my daily life.

What I will say is when the racist person try to impact my quality of life that is a battle that I am willing to fight. I could care less what jed from huckabuck Missouri think until it affects me.

The thing with the Michael Brown case is outsiders are being told it's a story about a black man fighting with a police officer and gets shot. Now black people are rioting and destroying their own community and now loud mouth Al Sharpton is here and the black president made a statement.

I see it as a case of poor relations between the community and the police department. There is no trust. I think people want to know the truth and held accountable.

The situation has escalated to a level that no one especially law enforcement expected. They can't tell the community non truth because of too many witnesses, social media, world wide attention, anonymous and many prominent people have their hands on this and they are working together.

My advice to any one is be patient and let the truth reveal itself.
