Any recent black on white crimes you guys can remember recently in your small hometown? Wherever that might be? Or is it just a fairy tale that never receives any merit? Just ignore it right?

I couldn't imagine a black on white crime. Does that even happen anymore? Or is it just a tall tale?

it happens but whenever it's alleged, instead of wall-to-wall media coverage, we tend to just see a lynching

and yeah it was sad that oscar grant was brutally murdered and all but the true tragedy was that the media reported on it

Any black on white crimes you guys want to put out in the spotlight? Or is whites the only race committed to murdering different races?

I mentioned that the media will show white/black crimes, primarily white on black, but also black on white. That gives them the race angle that I think is their real aim.

What they do not apparently care about is the minority on minority crimes. There, since they can't cover a bigger story, they just kinda let it go. The whole point was that people dying should be the ultimate story and not just the color of the person doing the killing.

Continue the namecalling now...

I addressed all this in a single post on page three and you ignored it

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
