But what race is systematically ruining cities and adding to these crimes? C'mon man. We are not talking history. We are talking about a current problem with a particular group of people. As you can see from a few posts back, calling the problem out means you are a racist.

Half the reason we have this problem is that the finger pointers have been silenced for decades. Sometimes introspection is a good thing. 12% of the population commiting 50% of the murders, 75% born to single mothers. Unemployment through the roof. These are all issues that reside directly in the black community.

Before you start calling people racists for pointing out the blatantly obvious perhaps you should take a step back and realize this isn't a condemnation on black individuals. There IS a problem in the community and it has yet to be addressed because people like you scream racist when you try to offer an explanation or god forbid a solution to the problem.

Shouting down and slandering people isn't going to solve anything. Telling people to get their effing acts together is a good first step. Not making people comfortable in their own failure is another one.

If you wanted to be honest why did you edit it out?

I mean this with all the respect in the world, but your post is nothing but gibberish.

No more questions. You obviously don't see it as a problem and live in some utopia fantasy world where "we are all just Americans and must unite" completely ignoring the fact that half the country hates the other half, the poor hate the rich, etc etc etc. the faster you come to grips with reality and not some fantasy world, the easier it will be for you to recognize a serious problem.

Thank you. Everyone thinks their a phuckin expert whenever it's black on black crime.

Then they try to add credibility to their statement by quoting a black person. Give me a break with the righteous bullshyt.

In any event, I asked this before, but what is the solution? Mandating personal responsibility won't work.

You don't have to be an expert to read statistics. I'm sorry you feel threatened, but maybe a little honesty would do everyone some good.

I'm Italian, I'm fully aware that other groups of Americans had violence issues. Those groups, however, eventually moved past it and joined the rest of responsible America.

That isn't happening right now.
