  1. WHERE's ALL THE COMMENTS.

    All of the Bigots on yahoo.

  3. Why all on Yahoo? I noticed that too.

  4. Harry Reid continues to echo the lie and the myth regarding the "victim mentality". He said; "The rich are getting richer, the poor poorer, the system is rigged against them, the opportunity to build a better life for yourself and your family is non-existent". This message is nothing less than pure and unadulterated BS. It’s a message that continually comes from the left and is the main reason the lower end of our society is stalled from moving forward. The left benefits by this lie as the message of that myth is the very foundation of the Democratic Party. Just look at the number of people who have come from the same neighborhoods and backgrounds as many of those who looted, burglarized and burned down their own neighborhoods a couple of nights ago. They are educated, successful and contributing to make the country a better place. These are people who made conscious decisions to take education seriously, people who were not looking to blame their environment for their lot in life but rather had the desire and determination to rise above it, people who made conscious decisions to be accountable for their actions, find success and help provide examples for those who want to follow. Harry Reid is a pathetic person with no integrity and no other purpose in life than to perpetuate the myth in order to keep his party in business.

  5. Lmao it's funny to me when people who have no idea of life in the black community speak on issues in the black community you need to sit down and shut up because you don't live it everyday

  6. So, you think people are only poor b/c they don't take education seriously, or b/c they choose to be? And you think that liberals should be blamed for people thinking that the federal government is corrupt, and biased towards wealthy people? LMAO American crime was at it's highest during the Reagan administration, so we know that your implied solution of a conservative leader is complete nonsense. Secondly, Black people were not legally allowed to own property in some states until 1926, which places them at exactly a 150 disadvantage, compared to white Americans. If we include the fact that prior to 1926, any American who didn't own property was incarcerated, and the low chance of ex-cons being employed, we can begin to see trends of broken families, high unemployment, and desperation. We know what desperation leads to in all human beings, right? Unskilled labor and crime. No one wants to starve, Wayne. Not even you. LOL It's time to take your head out of the sand, chief. Not all Americans have the opportunities that you did, and blaming them for that is illogical and mindless. A fair government is what every self-respecting citizen wants, even you, Wayne. So, let's cut the bashing, and focus on what matters, shall we?

  7. He doesn't have to live it everyday, we have people who do, speaking out and demanding changes in Washington. If Washington responds in their favor, let them speak.

  8. B/c it's the same guy.

  9. You are the problem. You can't see a problem when there is no problem of the matter in your life. You don't live in high patrol areas, but there is still crime. Explain that. Please go back to the mountains where y'all came from. before you say go back to Africa. I'm a moor. This is our land. You guys are invaders. You have erupted our lives for way too long. Have a seat DOG.

    You sound like a fucking idiot. I bet you were born and raised with different circumstances. You white European fucks kills me. Go suck ya momma

  11. King Wazo Uhuru The only person I bashed was Harry Reid and any person who has followed the career of that maggot does not have to look far to see that he is nothing more than a pawn who has made his millions spreading the lies of liberalism. I am an equal opportunity “basher” and will take on any politician, right or left who fits these criteria. The expiration date has long passed for generation after generation to continue blaming the government, white people, their environment and whatever crap the liberals keep feeding them in order to keep them in their place. Getting a diploma is not a privilege it’s something that’s earned. Taking control of one’s life is not an entitlement it is achieved thru discipline and drive. Discovering opportunity takes vision and hard work. Getting up when you are knocked down takes guts and determination. These are not right or left principles they are American principles. It’s time to grow up.

    There is a reason we as black people always have a victim mentality, it goes back very far and deep. You can't blame us for feeling that way. I don't feel that the system is against blacks specifically, but I do think because of the past it just so happens to be that we are the common victims of it. White Americans have the privilege to not be the common victim and be ignorant of the imbalances that still somewhat linger today between certain ethnic and class groups.

  13. "How a person can make it to the age of, say, 21, and not know–not be REQUIRED to know as a condition of being considered "educated"–the history of racism and police violence against black people (which history explains, fully, the anger one can see on display in places like Baltimore) is a stunning indictment of America and the educational system therein. It is testimony to the way in which this country has elevated ignorance and obliviousness to the level of personal sacraments, as treasured as gold and as central to the national culture as the flag, the national anthem and the pledge of allegiance. We know a made-up story about George Washington and a damned cherry tree, but nothing about the foundations of this country as a system of white supremacy and oppression. We bask in the supposed glories of our history while glossing over the ugliness, or lecturing people of color to "let go" of that past. But aside from the obvious–that these issues aren't in the past anyway, but very much a present crisis–note the hypocrisy. Telling others to let go of the past while we wallow in it regularly: July 4th (which, after all celebrates some really old shit); the "bravery" of the founders, Valley Forge and Monticello and plantation tours of antebellum homes, etc. When white folks are prepared to let go of all that and make the government pay the reparations that are owed after all that free and reduced price/exploited labor then perhaps we can speak of black folks "letting go" of slavery and the history of racism. But not a moment before that." Tim Wise, Timwise.org.

    The Police keeps on beating up and murdering African American men because the system allows them to get away with it. Talking and talking does not help the situation, all cops must wear body cam and those who beats up or murder back people must be sent to prison for a very long time. That is what needs to be done to stop the police brutality towards black Americans.

  15. Your not even worth a reply. Period.

  16. Sorry Thoven, this was for Wayne J.

  17. this is the typical reply from liberals when confronted with logic.

  19. Aristotle, a man of wisdom from the past is quoted as saying: “Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”.

  21. Alberee Carr says:

    Kudos to Senator Reid. Someone spoke and acknowledge this young man life. Thank you Senator Reid.

  22. Racial oppression is also not an accident. And it is also always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution. So if yall believe it just so simple and straight forwards then why don't yall carry the burden, hand over the keys and let another group do exactly the same things you all are doing, nothing more nothing less. If what you say is all that needs to be considered then yall shouldn't have any problem rising to the occasion.

  23. King Wazo Uhuru You are an idiot. Harry is more involved and knowledgeable than you pretend to be.

  24. Is THAT your contribution? Really?

  25. I have a question for you Mr. Jablonski. What happens when indgitous people are exploited for free labor for hundreds of years to be later set free to live with the individuals who captured and enslaved them in the first place? I could imagine perhaps the indviduals that were dominant would feel superior towards the former slaves and would not consider the former slaves as equals. I would also see why some people a may be somewhat afraid towards an individual if you are responsible dor unspeakable pain that your either caused or profited from. Civil rights had to be considered for people of color why? Why did people have to vote on that issue? If you ask me that wouls mean that some people thought that it was not important for descendants of former slaves to have. SThrough this whole process it has always been some type of struggle to be treated fairlyaacross the board on any topic. We can not pretend that a system truly exist that is not in the best intrest for people if color. I can not vote anything that could affect the way you live, but it happens to alot of people of color . There is a difference when you a person of color in America. You can say we have come so far, we have a man of color as our president and I would say how many times do white Americans die in police custody. This problem stems from the roots of our country. It's at the foundation of what built this country. When people are afraid often times their true character apears.

  26. Stephen Ford-Mann , I could name many black people who were raised in the ghetto and experienced many of the same things as you have. The difference is they followed the wisdom of Aristotle and thru discipline, drive and determination rose to become successful members our society. I can't make you stop thinking you are a "victim" only you can finally make the choice to be a "victor" rather than a "victim".

  27. Mr. Allen police keep getting away with murder and there is no one white man or white woman can save us. The murders won't stop because white men are threaten by black men. And they won't be sent to prison for a long time because they really don't even consider us as humans. Remember Michael Vick those dogs to white people are more valuable them is. If anything I think we she comes together as a nation and stop all the hate towards each other. Together we stand divided we fall and fail.
