equality is a strange word.. it's perception is of the person assessing the situation most times.. i find it very wierd that a race that recieves the amount of government aid and special treatment that the black do could ever claim they are being treated unfairly.. if i remember the history lesson correctly didn't MLK want EQUALITY.. lets see what unfair treatment white people endure. i'm 29 years old. why am i being punished for what happened most recently in 1865? why do i have to watch my mouth around someone who really deserves no respect? i respect any man that works to support himself and his family, does right onto others that do right onto him, and abides by most basic laws. these are things that the majority of white men do, but we are expected to respect someone who doesn't work, doesn;t support himself or his family, and if he does alot of the time it's becuase of illegal activity. activities that often hurt other people. i don't recieve government aid... i don't have W.E.T. theres no NAAWP... theres no "miss white america" yet if i had a bumper sticker that said proud to be white... i'd get flipped off by blacks and fellow caucasions... where is the sense in any of that? EQUALITY.. if you ask the perception of this white man. i'll tell you that white people are the ones who are treated unfairly. i'm being shit on for something my grandfathers grandfathers father did? and what did he do exactly? buy something that was for sale? what 99% of blacks don't realise is that the slaves that came here were already slaves in africa for whatever reason they were cast into that life. i'm not condoning slavery by any means.. but the chinese were slaves here, the american indian may as well have been a slave, the irish weren't treated very well for quite some time, the japanese were gathered up corraled into a fence and lived in a makeshift prison for the duration of WWII, the jewish people have been mistreated for a few thousand years. but who do we cater too? which brings me to another point. why are white people so scared of being tagged "a racist" i know people that go out of thier way to show they aren't "racist". WHY?
i've spent my fair share of time in gary, in... thats 35 mins from my house.
strange how things work... gary averages over a homicide a week.. yet my town and any town withing a 10 mile radius may have a homicide every... ohhhh....... well a couple years ago a dude shot his wife when he caught her with another dude... so 1 in a VERY long time.. news around here is a cow got outta the fence. gary is prodominatly black. kouts is prodominatly white. is there white trash in this little town? YOU BET! and i'm sure there are good people in gary somewhere..

and don't even get me started on 1/2 blacks.... or the treyvon martin bullshit.. obama is half black.. halle berry is half black but the black community says they are black... zimmerman shoots a black kid.. zimmerman is half hispanic and half white.. which qualifies him to consider himself hispanic in any poll taken across this country.. in fact 1/8 is good enough to claim a minority.. but since a black kid was shot and killed.. that half hispanic man is now "that WHITE GUY that killed the BLACK kid"

I don't know what the issue is. Your post could obviously be called racist as hell, but unfortunately i think i might say that you are just pointing out the obvious. Sad to say.
Even my black buddies pull some niggery shit. Just a different way of life i guess.
I'm quite often the white guy in the room. I work in Detroit constantly. Not in an office building either. Ghetto strip clubs, bars, commercial/industrial projects, and houses in the worst parts of Detroit.
I see 90 percent lazy. Disgusting living conditions, houses full of people sleeping all day. Anything new is destroyed for what almost seems out of spite.
The inner city mindset is so far from the rest of civilization that it will never be even close to fixed.

Every new construction project in Detroit is destroyed in no time. I see strip malls going up and the buildings are tagged with spray paint and parking lots full of garbage before the stores even open. People from the suburbs aren't doing that crap. They do it to themselves and bitch for another hand out.

Scoots, I want to so bad but I've got my hands full at the shop. I have to get my remodeling done before I can even think about touching that thing. I look at it ever day and wish but at this point, the business comes first.

I still want to hear about the nice African-American area. I need proof that my racist conclusions are not true. I really don't want to be racist but the culture keeps reinforcing the stereotypes.

All stereotypes are based in truth or they wouldn't become stereotypes.

Just a thought- you can only afford to live in the ghetto or the white trashiest trailer park.


Which one would you be able to sleep at night?

Also, please don't feed me that line of shit that says the black community is forced to live the way they do because of Whity, don't believe it. How much more free money can we pour into a community without getting any results?
I agree.

A white person and a black person will act just as desperate as a red person when they need to get that money and get that fix or just food.

It is not a matter of white black or whatever. Having pride in your background is a good thing. You flaunt what you have and are good at.
If you are the best mofo in the getto and know what you would be in upper class stay your azz where you are happy or excel to something better.
It is a culture thing. Not a black or white or whatever culture thing a rich and pour culture thing. There has and will always be a gap between the rich and the poor. Between old money and new money and the people dragging at there heels.

Think about it this way. In a earlier post it said something about 5 black people walking down the street.
If those 5 black people were in respectable suits and dress shoes would you view of them would be totally different.

Well what would they be doing in that part of town if they were yada yada.

It is a money thing not a race thing. I am more cautious and annoyed around someone that is desperate and poor them I am around someone that is well off. It is not anything new people been doing it since the beginning of trading.
I know that people have issues. But, I have been there seen it. I am not talking about a couple weeks BS either. People get desperate when stuff gets thin and they realize it is not getting better. Embracing that life gives some comfort and respect in there own mind.

That same person that moves out of that community and into a "better" community is still going to be treated as less and looked down upon despite there race. There is a degree of racism yes. But there is a greater degree of separation of wealthy and poor then there will ever be of race.

The thing is that separation is not a bad thing. People that work and are intelligent excel while those that are lazy are held back. Mind you it is a lot harder if you start at the bottom then the top. And people will ask for "equality" along the way which will only make it harder. There are exceptions where someone will get a butt load of cash somehow. With a intelligent hard working person that could be a life changer. With a lazy showboat they will end up back where they started soon enough.



The simple fact is that the only thing holding you back is you. Everything else is a excuse of someone or something that is holding you back. Once you look past the excuses and to what needs to be done it is a matter of effort not race.
