The history sucks, slavery was awful, what happened to George was not right and fucked. People of color have every opportunity any of us do should they CHOOSE to work their ass off to to there. Yes there will be a few racist assholes along the way, and that sucks too, but if they didn't choose the easy way they could continue the fights of MLK and prove they are better and become those assholes boss.You are clueless and need to pick up several history books and perhaps watch a documentary or 2. A lot of the blm movement is based off the HISTORY of the treatment of black people. Hell there’s some people on this board that was alive when black women couldn’t vote. How many black men spent their lives in prison over the color of their skin or straight out murdered. We’re not that far from the civil rights movement and racism still exist and will for a long time. You seem to base everything you say off today’s stats and news feeds.

Instead many take the easy way or are too entrenched in their "culture" of absentee fathers, gangs, violence, drugs and theft. Then blame the system and racism for all of their problems.
I have had the pleasure to work with some truly awesome people of color at various jobs. One of which is a guy that is pushing 70 now (might be older). If you looked at him he doesn't look a day over 40, he still works out and he reads the bible every day at lunch for pittance for what he did when he was young. He would choose pallet jacks over fork trucks, and it didn't slow him down much. That man had an interesting and colorful life, often violent when he was young, and often that violence was racist white guys. Other times it wasn't. He was a collection agent for the guys that 'ran numbers' in the shops. He had 22 children by different women and he was a hard ass worker.
I met him when he came to work for us after retiring from GM. He put every kid of his through college that wanted to go, many of his kids were doctors or lawyers. At one point he was a social worker to help pull up the disadvantaged kids for Genesee County. He was well known with police. While he worked for us, his 16 year old got arrested, something over shoes. When he went to the police station, the desk was empty and a door and cell unlocked. He went there and beat the crap out of his kid for getting arrested and then let him sit there for the night. That shit stopped in a hurry.
He told me many stories, and he and I had many conversations in the few years he worked for me before I left that company. While I don't pretend to know all of the issues, between he and our secretary we had at that same place I was able to get some nice perspective from people that HAD lived it in Flint. And while A LOT of it is asshole white people, there is a LOT that is also self inflicted. But even though those perspectives came from them, even they would say as a white guy, I am not allowed to say that because I will be called racist.
I miss that guy, we talk on FB once in awhile still. He taught me black people can get sunburned when I was really young and dumb :sonicjay:
