    “I am a black male who grew up in the inner city of Atlanta and no one ever followed me in a mall. I don’t recall any doors clicking when I crossed the street. And I never had anyone clutching their handbag when I got on an elevator. I guess having two awesome parents who taught me to be a respectful young man paid dividends.” – Allen Wes

    Yet for every one black man who says this I bet you can find 10 others with equally awesome parents who have experienced it.

    Allen West is definitely not the rule. It just is what it is.

    If the liberals would give up the lying shackles by which they enslave the blacks, the Allen Wests would be very much the norm!!!

    Sounds like Booker T. Washington when civil rights was on the right track and doing well - at the very start.

    You know, as a Yute, going in a mall....I was well aware that the store security watched me more closely. Cops for some reason, tended to pull me over when I drove & depending where I was walking--if behind a older person that they would get a tad bit more anxious. That goes with the turf--white, black, Asian, Latino etc. Your younger & more likely to prey on the elderly (or so they think). And its all fear based---sometimes justifiable/ sometimes not, but it is what it is. BO is either not in touch with reality or just using the commentary to enrich his position with minorities--I think the latter.

    So it's the liberal enslavement of Blacks that's causing security and cops to profile them? :laugh:

    A lot of things get profiled. Profiling is good and necessary otherwise there is no physical recognition of potential threats. Wearing dark clothes with a hood in the dark in a neighborhood you do not live is always going to raise some eyebrows regardless of the color of skin. Black people are not the only people to wear hoodies. And black people are not the only people profiled.


    Why do these things happen more among black people? I don't know, maybe there is a bigger crime problem among black people. They would be better served to deal with that then trying to blame everyone else for their woes.

    I bet you're right, but hopefully, not.
    If you're right, and they tell their stories to their children at the dinner table so their children nurtures the same resentments they as adults, do not seem to let go, then those parents deserve the kind of kids they get if these kids turn to being gangbangers or such like so they can get their revenge and protection from whitey specifically and anyone who ain't a brodda or a sistah, generally.

    Just one step removed of course.

    It is the liberal enslavement that causes them to belive the only way to get ahead is to steal.

    It is the liberal enslavement that tells them education and hard work are a waste of time.

    It is the liberal enslavement that tells them goverment aid is better than two parents and a stable home.

    It is the liberal lie that tells them the only reason some people are rich is that they stole what was rightfully theirs and they should take it back.

    It is the liberal enslavement that tells them the world should change to accomodate them instead of the other way around.

    It is the liberal enslavement that tells them they have a right to the same material things as those who worked hard for them.

    It is the liberal lie that they are still enslaved and need to break free.

    The truth is that slavery has been outlawed in America for over a century and they are free to accomplish anything they are willing to work for.

    Rev. now think about what West said. There is a very logical reason why no one followed him and no one locked their doors.
