    Blacks Must Confront Reality

    Though racial discrimination exists, it is nowhere near the barrier it once was. The relevant question is: How much of what we see today can be explained by racial discrimination? This is an important question because if we conclude that racial discrimination is the major cause of black problems when it isn't, then effective solutions will be elusive forever. To begin to get a handle on the answer, let's pull up a few historical facts about black Americans.

    Because you have it wrong.

    Blacks are about 13% of the U.S. population.

    Crimes committed by blacks (according to your chart) exceed 13% in every category except DUI and liquor laws (under age drinking?).

    Percentage of rapes by blacks is 32.9% - assault 33.6% - arson 25.7%

    Since 63.9% of assaults are committed by whites; 65% of all rapes committed by whites, then the conclusion must be that whites are committing these crimes on blacks at a disproportionate rate.

    [although the phrase "blacks are major victims" is hardly definitive.]

    There's that blind spot of white privilege waving its banner again. Somebody has been listening to FOX News too much.

    So when the black and brown folks become the new majority, suppose, just suppose they start targeting white folks for crimes at a much higher rate than they do the black and brown people? Suppose the white people are now put in jail for doing the same things that the black and brown people are doing but not getting arrested for?

    Suppose a large chunk of the prison population suddenly becomes white males and the numbers increase over a generation because the black and brown folks are targeting them more?

    Suppose that leads to more white families without fathers present.

    In other words, save the foolishness. Prisons are an INDUSTRY in the United States. In fact , it is one of the fastest growing industries in the country and its investors are on Wall Street.

    And last time I checked,Wall Street is being run by old white men.

    SO contrary to your limited sight beliefs, white men have played a large role in the break down of the Black family structure TODAY just as they did during slavery when they broke up families by selling or killing the fathers and brothers, or the way they did during Jim Crow when they killed and lynched fathers and brothers.

    SO yes Blacks should take responsibility. But it's time for Whites in America to admit that they and theirs helped Blacks to get to that point today just as they did during slavery and Jim Crow.

    You are a racist Zaac and that becomes more apparent with each post you make.

    In the history of the world there has never been an occasion where people of one race have fought a war to free people of another race. The Civil War resulted in brother against brother, white against white, and cost as many lives as all other wars combined! Yet many race baiters like you and Al Sharpton blame "whitie"!

    At one point there were just as many black slave owners as there were white ones. Some of those came out of slavery and were just as mean to their slaves. There were asian slave owners as well. Also it was the natives to Africa that caught and sold slaves to people all around the world. This was a result of tribal jealousy and conflicts. So the idea that the American white man is to blame for all the ills of the black community is just bunk.

    I am aware of that. There were also blacks who owned slaves.

    That your logic skills can lead you to this conclusion says a lot.

    It's OK, Zach.

    Nobody here expects you to confront reality.

    We've observed your head in the sand racial attitudes for too long.

    So the real question is...

    When will black Americans stop blaming whites for all their problems?

    When will they actually look in the mirror and see their worst enemy and do something about it...besides whine?

    There is no doubt. The statistics come from too many sources, including enlightened black Americans. The root cause of their poverty and atrocious crime rates is the collapse of the nuclear family.

    When will they address that and try to do something about it?

    Listening to the apologists from the left here, the answer is ...never. Still in denial.
