the things i learned about various races and people while working in the "rent to own" industry right out of high school are invaluable.
it flipped some stereotypes inside out and made others all the more obvious.

usually, those that comment the most about racial issues are the ones that don't have enough perspective or breadth of friendships with those from another race.
kinda like the guy who always talks about the war. those were the guys who peeled potatos. the guys who DON'T talk, now those are the guys who saw/did some stuff.


sweet anecdote now stop shitting up every thread that deals with racism with this dumb bullshit about how the only people who truly know anything are the ones that won't "comment" on it

on the other hand you seem to comment on the economy a lot and let's face it you don't really seem to have a fuging clue so maybe there is some truth to your dumb theory after all

For the bike video, i wouldnt say anything. what thief has all sorts of tools with him to steal a bike? lol People conducting these studies have obviously never stole anything lol

The original video is dumb too, like someone else said there is no evidence of time and how many people passed by while vandalism occurred. Plus when the black kids were vandalizing why were there no white kids sleeping in a car? ugh lol

though these videos aren't scientific, there are a wealth of studies and data that suggest that black people are in fact treated differently by the justice system. i mean you can all sit here and try to poke holes in a dumb news story and pretend like that negates the fact that (surprise!) black people are profiled by police, convicted at disproportionate rates, and given disproportionately longer sentences, OR you can at least pretend like you guys have spent more than 10 minutes thinking about how fuging shitty america can be, and has been, toward minorities

A mass exodus of African Americas back to Africa will happen in the next..ehh call it 100 years. Marcus Garvery 2.0 will hit the mainstream sometime this century, and this won't be a problem anymore.

Wait, you are saying racism is alive and well?

Stop the presses!

One thing I notice is that when kids are raised in a 2 parent home of any race or creed, chances are those kids will do well. When a mom is struggling to raise kids by herself things can go wrong very easily. There will never be enough money for enough social workers, teachers, police, etc to replace an absentee parent.

Look at the 2005 cencus data...

Single Parent Family Statistics by Race

From the US Census Bureau 2005 Data
  • 50% of African American children live in single parent families headed by the mother
  • 25% of Hispanic kids live with a single mother
  • 16% of non-Hispanic white children reside with a single mom
  • 10% of Asian kids live with a single mother
  • 4-5% of children of all races live with a single father
Now couple that information with the fact that kids from fatherless homes are 80% more likely to be in trouble with the law.


Look at that data think think about how rare it is to see an asian youth in trouble. I have shot Vietnamese weddings and the family bond they have puts the rest of us to shame. Its really amazing to see.
