These people don't like "black" anything, I doubt if they like black shoes. When they finish arming themselves to the nines and point their guns in all of our direction, what are going to do? We're all going to DIE. They call Barack Obama and Michelle all kinds of women and men, gorillas, Silverbacks; have no respect for them whatsoever. They've called us everything in the book, shot our asses down in the street, hung us up trees; yet, when they go to war with other people of color, there we...

One can read all about White Boy Rick on YouTube. His sentence was much too long. Hopefully, he'll be freed. He was about 10 years from age 7 when he was incarcerated FOR LIFE. No one should go for that long black or white. Afterall, he was helping the Feds or something to that effect. Get in with the wrong crowd, get caught, it's your ASS!!!!! You really don't have to get caught; get SHOT; damn near the same thing!! If you live.

Oh, he's not 'White' boy, he's Indian.

So, who did he really make look bad, Serena, or himself and his own damn race [and all other non-White 'minorities] since by stabbing Serena and the Black race in the back did nothing but put his non-White ass down on his knees blowing the White man's 'Dixie' for a damn 'pat-on-the-head'...

Re: Saving Government Jobs To Keep Playing Field Level

I understand Yemaya, but government jobs account for a large chuck of the African American jobs pool. So, the thing is, also, that we need to see the attack on "government jobs" as an attack on the African American jobs pool. Because when you factor in the age-old racial discrimination, the neo-Obama racial discrimination, the already higher than average unemployment rate into the equation of the attack on government jobs you are looking at the African American unemployment rate reaching...

Well....there is some kind of psychosis happening in the black community. Its akin to the psychosomatic reaction from a placebo, otherwise known as the "Placebo effect". President O bomb a produces the placebo effect upon our people. It's evidenced by another study, earlier this year, which indicated that blacks believed they were doing better now than 5 years ago, depite all the data that shows a marked decline in our standard of living.
