I wouldnt think anything bad of it just because they are black. It doesnt matter what color they are its all about how you treat people, how you act, and how you treat yourself.

If I saw 5 black men walking towards me that dressed respectable and they looked like they are contributing to society I would have no problem. I would smile and say hi as they walked past.

But if I saw 5 "wiggers" walking towards me, i would act the same way as if I saw 5 poorly dressed "homeboys" walking towards me.

Its not about color. You can be black, white, purple, orange, yellow...As long as you are a respectable individual, I have no problem with you. The problem is when people think they have something to prove.

100% true.
It's a shame that in the black community that is in Michigan there are very few respectable people.
I have worked with and for a few. And they are just like any other respectable person.
Most however are not.

I'm with you on that, but people generally don't have such an optimistic view.

A lot of the black community think that society and "the white man" are holding them down when really they are holding themselves down. They have the same opportunities that we have. Sure they have to work a little harder but nobody has ever gotten anywhere in life without working hard. If you are not lazy then you will be okay.

I don’t deal with black people all the time, my job and friends are all most all white. I work with a really nice older black lady. I try not to be a racist. Every few years I come across a really cheap car, put a few bucks in to it to make it reliable and safe to drive and then sell it. Usually is $800 or less. Every single time I do this I realize why I don’t care for most black people.... They are very inconsiderate. They call and say they are coming to look at it then don’t show or are very late. When they get there they are rude and expect me to be selling an $8000 car for $800.

I don’t sell the car to make friends; I sell it to make a few bucks. The difference is, when a white, brown, yellow or orange person show up, 9 times out of 10 they are on time and don’t act like I’m trying to steal from them.

Call me a racist if you want... I don’t care. I’m not saying toothless hillbillies from Burtucky are much better to deal with, but they are better.

rac·ism   [rey-siz-uhm] Show IPA
noun
1.
a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2.
a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3.
hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Can we get that changed to:

rac·ism   [rey-siz-uhm] Show IPA
noun
1.
a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior to African-Americans and has the right to rule African-Americans.
2.
a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination against African-Americans.
3.
hatred or intolerance of African-Americans.

I just find it confusing that racism, prejudice, and stereotyping has basically become Anti-Black. It seems that quite often some people that are quick to judge and call others racists have no qualms about making the same jokes, comments, or judgments about the gays, Mexicans, Jews, Arabs, Polish, Asians, etc... that they find fault in others for.

As for the comment about the 5 black guys... I've found that for the most part the black people in our area appear to be a lot more upstanding people than the majority of the young Chaldean gangster, bad ass wannabees. And it seems like the majority of our crimes are committed by spoiled, bored, ill behaved white children. So to answer the whole 5 black dudes question I wouldn't have any issues with them unless they were being asshats and causing issues.

with all due respect and some info for our out-state and out-of-state readers, your id says your in west bloomfield. west bloomfield is sort of the carmel-by-the-sea suburb of detroit. overall, it's very wealthy. i would suspect that 5 blacks walking down the street in W.B. are of quite a different upbringing than most blacks. this would skew your perception of the situation.

i have lived in/around detroit all my life and in today's environment, i get a little leary whenever i see a 5-pack of anybody walking down the street toward me.

anyway, does anybody even WALK anymore??

That's why I said it's more about how people present themselves than anything. That's kinda part of the point I was trying to make. Just because they are black doesn't mean they are going to mug, murder, and rape you. Out this way they very well could all be pre-med kids walking to their nightly volunteering gig at the hospital.

i have lived in/around detroit all my life and in today's environment, i get a little leary whenever i see a 5-pack of anybody walking down the street toward me. I have to say that I feel the same way to a degree. If anything its just that if something did go down the odds are severely skewed, and not in your favor.

anyway, does anybody even WALK anymore??
Hell every Saturday I see large packs of bearded, wide brimmed hat wearing Jews wandering around. To some that may be a bit worrisome I suppose.

We have some black families move in on our block.

I like them better than the drunk white trash that lives across the street from me and keeps throwing random furniture at each other.

There are days I'm sure my neighbors would rather have a black family in my house than us.

I am proud to be a white man. People who don't take pride in themselves are usually pretty worthless.
