      I live in a fairly large urban area, and everyday I read in the news that another young black male has been killed. Here's what I don't understand, everytime this happens the black community finds the nearest tv camera and blames someone else. It doesn't matter if it's the cops, the city or George Bush.

      Why do they blame others when it's real simple whose at fault here: other black males!

      I'm not trying to come off as racist here, I just can't figure out why they are blaming the wrong group. If everyone is ok with blaming muslims with terrorism, why is it so hard to blame blacks for black on black crime??

      A white guy didn't go in the hood and shoot up some brothers, it was someone from that community.

      Does this happen in other cities?

      It's not as prevelant here where I live but share the same opinion. I am not racist..I believe in equality for everyone and know there is no difference between us all.

      All I'll say is that segregation only ended 40-50 years ago, that's not that long ago. Racist undertones and segregated communities still linger on. So when you have a small urban area with concentrated amounts of one race, it's going to be "skin tone color on same skin tone color" crime.

      Add that with the fact that a large majority of the young african american community thrives on "hip hop" music glorifying gun use, gang affiliation, peddling drugs, and encouraging violence- then it all adds up to an ugly situation.

      It's a sad state of affairs. Hopefully things will pan out in the coming years. Hip hop seems to be slowly dieing so that's a good sign : )

      The reason it drives me nuts is: if I make a mistake, I take the blame for it. I don't go and point the finger at someone else.

      happens in the bad parts of pittsburgh all the time. Im not racist in anyway either but the black community where the penguins are building their new areana wants a certain percentage of profits bc its "in their neighborhood". They also wanted a percentage of parking etc....i mean come on what is that?

      Default my take

      dont think I should get in on this one but I think its an economic thing more than anything else. Crack is prevalent in black communities that are impovrished and meth is prevelent in white communities that are impovrished. Some hip hop is shit two step clap beat glorifying shit garbage but there is some hip hop that is just "telling in like it is" so to speak so cant say Id have issue with that. Jay Z, em, pac, etc great shit!!!!!
      Has anyone on here ever seen the wire on HBO. really good look at this issue. Its a cops and bad guys show but really high quality honest look at baltimore md and the horrible poverty and crime that city deals with and how pretty much all parties involved (schools, white, black, politicians, cops, drug dealers) are all at fault
      I just wish they would stop worrying about roids (hormones found naturally in our bodies ) and put all that money and manpower on this kinda bullshit
