In Response To: Partial Truth, AbsoluteTruth OR Lie Quiz (discipleofthenile)
Truth or Lie: All lower class blacks are illiterate whores, wife beaters, pimps, drug-dealers, gangstas and parasitic welfare cheaters.
You know disciple, I get where you're coming from, unfortunately you do not get me.
You see I recognize that some of the above activities are indulged in by some members of the African-American inner-city community, but I challenge anyone Black/White to mount a convincing argument, that aberrant behavior has become the standard among the members of this particular demographic.
It occurs to me, and should to everyone who isn't self-righteous, that aberrant behavior exists everywhere, in every demographic, there are lots of recipes for making a cake, but the end result is usually the same. Why then, is it always the least among us who are singled out. Why is it okay to thrash the poor and powerless, when the rich and decadent, make no apologies, nor are they called to task for their behavior? Does this not seem like "Bas-ackwards" to you?
You have not proved a prevalence of these behaviors. Simply by stating they occur and that you have witnessed them will not make it so. For every drug abuser there are 100 more who have chosen a different path. You agree with me that its a miracle that anyone survives the chaos of the ghetto with their personality intact, yet you will not acknowledge that miracles are the norm and not the aberration.
