I would honestly be afraid, but I would continue on my course.

That depends on how deeply you look into the issue. It certainly could influence your outlook. But if you looked into the reasons why blacks seem to be involved in so much crime, you might find some understanding of the situation that would preclude a racist conclusion.

I myself used to be the target of black gangs in my youth. I took many beatings. I now believe I would have acted much the same as they did if I had grown up in the circumstances they did in my city. They lived in a getto, they were hated and feared by most whites and had a history of being taken advantage of and degraded. They were just finding some power agaist the white race that had enslaved them first physically and then ecomnomically and educationally. This is just my take on it, and I do not excuse their behavior, I just understand it.




I refuse to pity and understand a group of people based soley on race. That's racism.

Understanding their plight is a construct of your mind. Having our prisons and welfare systems littered with blacks is a fact.

There were just as many white slaves as there were black slaves. The centuries-old race struggle in our countries is a smokescreen for what should really be a class struggle. The poor have been enslaved, persecuted, and exploited by the upper class regardless of skin colour. Words like ``redneck'' and ``white trash'' are deemed acceptable while the ``N-word'' is not is proof that as Americans, by and large, have been duped by rich folks into playing the race card.

Just because alot of blacks are in prison or on welfare doesn't mean theres not other factors behind that "fact"

Fair enough. You can either walk past a gang of black on the left side of the street or a gang of whites on the right side of the street in equal numbers. You cannot walk down the center of the street nor turn around. Which do you choose?

The proof is in the pudding.

Do the gangs know each other is there? IF so since I'm white I'd pick the white side most likely.

I would wager that nearly everyone would choose the side that looked most like them. This is ingrained.

Usually people who go oh why are there racists? and oh why is there racism? oh they are ignorant!!! are people who've grown up in safe little suburban white communities.

if you get to interacting in a diverse city you'll understand why there is racism and you'll see stereotypes in action, constantly, everywhere.... like swami, most of the time crime has been perpetrated against me or my family members it has been at the hands of nonwhites.
