beantownsmugglerBlack people can get fucking jobs. I went to high school with a majority population of minorities, most of which were black, and there were a ton of them that came from nowhere and went somewhere. I had a few friends that were from the slums of Newark NJ, in gangs, and were stealing cars in their freshman year of H.S....Now, they are holding respectable jobs within huge companies and they are making a ton of money. Just because they were given opportunities, went to school, stayed the course, and had some ambition.
So don't tell me the whole "oh, poor black man, there's so much racism" bullshit.
It honestly boils down to laziness, primal behavior, and blaming everything for your own atrocities. It makes me sick. It's dragging the entire system down. Do the hispanics have hoods within every single American citiy's vicinity that are on the news every fucking night? Sure, they're up there in the crime statistics, but at least their top priority is work.
They had a chance, and they fucked it up. It's a shame that a few bring the rest of them down, but it's the sad truth. Live with it. And let them change it. Somehow, hopefully.
I think your last paragraph is really crazy. Not quite sure how you think black people had a chance in any of the same ways that white people have. There are so many more complexities to the racial divide in America right now than you are touching on... I'd like to know more about why you feel you have the right to drop the gavel on the situation. I read an interview that Chris Rock did, one section stood out.. Check it out.
"Yes, that would be an event. Hereís the thing. When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, itís all nonsense. There are no race relations. White people were crazy. Now theyíre not as crazy. To say that black people have made progress would be to say they deserve what happened to them before.
"So, to say Obama is progress is saying that heís the first black person that is qualified to be president. Thatís not black progress. Thatís white progress. Thereís been black people qualified to be president for hundreds of years. If you saw Tina Turner and Ike having a lovely breakfast over there, would you say their relationshipís improved? Some people would. But a smart person would go, ďOh, he stopped punching her in the face.Ē Itís not up to her. Ike and Tina Turnerís relationship has nothing to do with Tina Turner. Nothing. It just doesnít. The question is, you know, my kids are smart, educated, beautiful, polite children. There have been smart, educated, beautiful, polite black children for hundreds of years. The advantage that my children have is that my children are encountering the nicest white people that America has ever produced. Letís hope America keeps producing nicer white people.
Itís about white people adjusting to a new reality?
Owning their actions. Not even their actions. The actions of your dad. Yeah, itís unfair that you can get judged by something you didnít do, but itís also unfair that you can inherit money that you didnít work for."
