    99% of the issues faced in the black community are due to the actions/reactions of the black community. Those issues are the fault and the responsibility of the black community.
    Part of that problem is, instead of taking time and trying to genuinely fix them, the black community instead plays victims and points fingers and blames the white race in its entirety. But hey I guess that’s easier than actually changing the deep rooted issues in your own community.

      The saddest thing is that blacks are just being used again. They are used to promote an agenda. This is in no way good for the blacks. Making the blacks feel like victims is going to destroy them even more.

    Resources have been taken? They were taken because the people who took them saw them as valuable, the people who did have them couldn’t do anything with them

    Why not poison the white's food? If you're white and eating at his restaurant you should just kill yourself. Do him the favor.

      ​@Ojay Is Ojay Not now, but if the systemic attack on white identity is not stopped everybody will get hurt sooner or later, and remember ,when whites get angry, its not a good sight.. let me just say, your keyboard won't save you.

      Well wouldn’t you be if your entire race got blamed for something that wasn’t your fault ?

    Blacks are 13% of the US population and are way over that percentage in music, media, sports, universities, and entrepreneurship. So in reality they are over represented. More black millionaires in the US then the world combined. This is just more acceptable black racism. Any white person who goes to a restaurant to get charged 3 times more no matter their own personal experiences or trials and tribulations, that for some reason cant ever be acknowledged is hopeless.
