I am not black and therefore I cannot put myself in the shoes of someone who is. I do not know what they may have gone though decades ago up until today. I am sure many were treated, well, poorly although that is radically inadequate. Horribly, horrendously even cruelly at times and that makes me sad. It does not in any way shape or form make me apologetic for the godless actions of others nor does it make me feel guilty for being white. It does make me angry.
In addition, I can understand the frustration, the fear, the anger of the black community but I in no way understand nor do I condone the violence, the burning, the chaos and so forth, although much of this is coming from these moronic young white people who frankly many have needed a bullet, rubber or otherwise.
Here is my question.....where are all the decent, good, God fearing, black leaders of this country? Where? I am not speaking of Barry, nor Charlatan, nor Jackson, but the true leaders? Are there any left?
With that said, when is the black race going to own up to problems and issues within their own race, in their own backyards without blaming white people for every problem they have, much of which is created by them. These people need to own up, take responsibility and accountability for their words and actions and clean up their own backyards to begin with. Look at every single inner city of America. Predominantly black, poor, crime ridden, drug infested, murder (Chicago come to mind?), out of control teen pregnancy and a host of other problems. Not to mention "hope" left long ago and primarily due to decisions by Democrats.
This and these problems will continue as long as blacks blame others and no black leaders step forward with ideas and plans to fix the problems.
Just for the record, you know who got royally screwed in this country and they suffer quietly today beyond belief...the American Indian.

All true. Especially the comment about the American Indians.
However, as with nearly any endeavor - some (many?) tribes (and individual Indians) do quite well. Lots of money in their casinos. And individuals that get educated, and work hard can and do get ahead. Same as the opportunity for blacks, or any others in the USA (so far, unless socialism take over!).
Agreed Pete. Not saying "minorities" don't often have challenges at times but in this country if you want to succeed you will succeed. Look at Dr. Carson. His mother could not even read for crying out loud. I just get so tired of the excuses and lack of responsibility and accountability in people.
