Quite possibly the most racist article you will ever read

Still liberal after all these years.

I am a public defender in a large southern metropolitan area. Fewer than ten percent of the people in the area I serve are black but over 90 per cent of my clients are black. The remaining ten percent are mainly Hispanics but there are a few whites.

I have explanation for why this is, but crime has racial patterns. Hispanics usually commit two kinds of crime: sexual assault on children and driving under the influence. Blacks commit many violent crimes but very few sex crimes. The handful of whites I see commit all kinds of crimes. In my many years as a public defender I have represented only three Asians, and one was half black.

As a young lawyer, I believed the official story that blacks are law abiding, intelligent, family-oriented people, but are so poor they must turn to crime to survive. Actual black behavior was a shock to me.

The media invariably sugarcoat black behavior. Even the news reports of the very crimes I dealt with in court were slanted. Television news intentionally leaves out unflattering facts about the accused, and sometimes omits names that are obviously black. All this rocked my liberal, tolerant beliefs, but it took me years to set aside my illusions and accept the reality of what I see every day. I have now served thousands of blacks and their families, protecting their rights and defending them in court. What follow are my observations.

Although blacks are only a small percentage of our community, the courthouse is filled with them: the halls and gallery benches are overflowing with black defendants, families, and crime victims. Most whites with business in court arrive quietly, dress appropriately, and keep their heads down. They get in and get out–if they can–as fast as they can. For blacks, the courthouse is like a carnival. They all seem to know each other: hundreds and hundreds each day, gossiping, laughing loudly, waving, and crowding the halls.

When I am appointed to represent a client I introduce myself and explain that I am his lawyer. I explain the court process and my role in it, and I ask the client some basic questions about himself. At this stage, I can tell with great accuracy how people will react. Hispanics are extremely polite and deferential. An Hispanic will never call me by my first name and will answer my questions directly and with appropriate respect for my position. Whites are similarly respectful.

A black man will never call me Mr. Smith; I am always “Mike.” It is not unusual for a 19-year-old black to refer to me as “dog.” A black may mumble complaints about everything I say, and roll his eyes when I politely interrupt so I can continue with my explanation. Also, everything I say to blacks must be at about the third-grade level. If I slip and use adult language, they get angry because they think I am flaunting my superiority.

At the early stages of a case, I explain the process to my clients. I often do not yet have the information in the police reports. Blacks are unable to understand that I do not yet have answers to all of their questions, but that I will by a certain date. They live in the here and the now and are unable to wait for anything. Usually, by the second meeting with the client I have most of the police reports and understand their case.

Unlike people of other races, blacks never see their lawyer as someone who is there to help them. I am a part of the system against which they are waging war. They often explode with anger at me and are quick to blame me for anything that goes wrong in their case.

Black men often try to trip me up and challenge my knowledge of the law or the facts of the case. I appreciate sincere questions about the elements of the offense or the sentencing guidelines, but blacks ask questions to test me. Unfortunately, they are almost always wrong in their reading, or understanding, of the law, and this can cause friction. I may repeatedly explain the law, and provide copies of the statute showing, for example, why my client must serve six years if convicted, but he continues to believe that a hand-written note from his “cellie” is controlling law.

The risks of trial
The Constitution allows a defendant to make three crucial decisions in his case. He decides whether to plea guilty or not guilty. He decides whether to have a bench trial or a jury trial. He decides whether he will testify or whether he will remain silent. A client who insists on testifying is almost always making a terrible mistake, but I cannot stop him.

Most blacks are unable to speak English well. They cannot conjugate verbs. They have a poor grasp of verb tenses. They have a limited vocabulary. They cannot speak without swearing. They often become hostile on the stand. Many, when they testify, show a complete lack of empathy and are unable to conceal a morality based on the satisfaction of immediate, base needs. This is a disaster, especially in a jury trial. Most jurors are white, and are appalled by the demeanor of uneducated, criminal blacks.

Prosecutors are delighted when a black defendant takes the stand. It is like shooting fish in a barrel. However, the defense usually gets to cross-examine the black victim, who is likely to make just as bad an impression on the stand as the defendant. This is an invaluable gift to the defense, because jurors may not convict a defendant—even if they think he is guilty—if they dislike the victim even more than they dislike the defendant.

Most criminal cases do not go to trial. Often the evidence against the accused is overwhelming, and the chances of conviction are high. The defendant is better off with a plea bargain: pleading guilty to a lesser charge and getting a lighter sentence.

The decision to plea to a lesser charge turns on the strength of the evidence. When blacks ask the ultimate question—”Will we win at trial?”—I tell them I cannot know, but I then describe the strengths and weaknesses of our case. The weaknesses are usually obvious: There are five eyewitnesses against you. Or, you made a confession to both the detective and your grandmother. They found you in possession of a pink cell phone with a case that has rhinestones spelling the name of the victim of the robbery. There is a video of the murderer wearing the same shirt you were wearing when you were arrested, which has the words “In Da Houz” on the back, not to mention you have the same “RIP Pookie 7/4/12” tattoo on your neck as the man in the video. Etc.

If you tell a black man that the evidence is very harmful to his case, he will blame you. “You ain’t workin’ fo’ me.” “It like you workin’ with da State.” Every public defender hears this. The more you try to explain the evidence to a black man, the angrier he gets. It is my firm belief many black are unable to discuss the evidence against them rationally because they cannot view things from the perspective of others. They simply cannot understand how the facts in the case will appear to a jury.

This inability to see things from someone else’s perspective helps explain why there are so many black criminals. They do not understand the pain they are inflicting on others. One of my robbery clients is a good example. He and two co-defendants walked into a small store run by two young women. All three men were wearing masks. They drew handguns and ordered the women into a back room. One man beat a girl with his gun. The second man stood over the second girl while the third man emptied the cash register. All of this was on video.

My client was the one who beat the girl. When he asked me, “What are our chances at trial?” I said, “Not so good.” He immediately got angry, raised his voice, and accused me of working with the prosecution. I asked him how he thought a jury would react to the video. “They don’t care,” he said. I told him the jury would probably feel deeply sympathetic towards these two women and would be angry at him because of how he treated them. I asked him whether he felt bad for the women he had beaten and terrorized. He told me what I suspected—what too many blacks say about the suffering of others: “What do I care? She ain’t me. She ain’t kin. Don’t even know her.”

No fathers
As a public defender, I have learned many things about people. One is that defendants do not have fathers. If a black even knows the name of his father, he knows of him only as a shadowy person with whom he has absolutely no ties. When a client is sentenced, I often beg for mercy on the grounds that the defendant did not have a father and never had a chance in life. I have often tracked down the man’s father–in jail–and have brought him to the sentencing hearing to testify that he never knew his son and never lifted a finger to help him. Often, this is the first time my client has ever met his father. These meetings are utterly unemotional.

Many black defendants don’t even have mothers who care about them. Many are raised by grandmothers after the state removes the children from an incompetent teenaged mother. Many of these mothers and grandmothers are mentally unstable, and are completely disconnected from the realities they face in court and in life. A 47-year-old grandmother will deny that her grandson has gang ties even though his forehead is tattooed with a gang sign or slogan. When I point this out in as kind and understanding way as I can, she screams at me. When black women start screaming, they invoke the name of Jesus and shout swear words in the same breath.

Black women have great faith in God, but they have a twisted understanding of His role. They do not pray for strength or courage. They pray for results: the satisfaction of immediate needs. One of my clients was a black woman who prayed in a circle with her accomplices for God’s protection from the police before they would set out to commit a robbery.

The mothers and grandmothers pray in the hallways–not for justice, but for acquittal. When I explain that the evidence that their beloved child murdered the shop keeper is overwhelming, and that he should accept the very fair plea bargain I have negotiated, they will tell me that he is going to trial and will “ride with the Lord.” They tell me they speak to God every day and He assures them that the young man will be acquitted.

The mothers and grandmothers do not seem to be able to imagine and understand the consequences of going to trial and losing. Some–and this is a shocking reality it took me a long time to grasp–don’t really care what happens to the client, but want to make it look as though they care. This means pounding their chests in righteous indignation, and insisting on going to trial despite terrible evidence. They refuse to listen to the one person–me–who has the knowledge to make the best recommendation. These people soon lose interest in the case, and stop showing up after about the third or fourth court date. It is then easier for me to convince the client to act in his own best interests and accept a plea agreement.

Part of the problem is that underclass black women begin having babies at age 15. They continue to have babies, with different black men, until they have had five or six. These women do not go to school. They do not work. They are not ashamed to live on public money. They plan their entire lives around the expectation that they will always get free money and never have to work. I do not see this among whites, Hispanics, or any other people.

The black men who become my clients also do not work. They get social security disability payments for a mental defect or for a vague and invisible physical ailment. They do not pay for anything: not for housing (Grandma lives on welfare and he lives with her), not for food (Grandma and the baby-momma share with him), and not for child support. When I learn that my 19-year-old defendant does not work or go to school, I ask, “What do you do all day?” He smiles. “You know, just chill.” These men live in a culture with no expectations, no demands, and no shame.

If you tell a black to dress properly for trial, and don’t give specific instructions, he will arrive in wildly inappropriate clothes. I represented a woman who was on trial for drugs; she wore a baseball cap with a marijuana leaf embroidered on it. I represented a man who wore a shirt that read “rules are for suckers” to his probation hearing. Our office provides suits, shirts, ties, and dresses for clients to wear for jury trials. Often, it takes a whole team of lawyers to persuade a black to wear a shirt and tie instead of gang colors.

From time to time the media report that although blacks are 12 percent of the population they are 40 percent of the prison population. This is supposed to be an outrage that results from unfair treatment by the criminal justice system. What the media only hint at is another staggering reality: recidivism. Black men are arrested and convicted over and over. It is typical for a black man to have five felony convictions before the age of 30. This kind of record is rare among whites and Hispanics, and probably even rarer among Asians.

At one time our office was looking for a motto that defined our philosophy. Someone joked that it should be: “Doesn’t everyone deserve an eleventh chance?”

I am a liberal. I believe that those of us who are able to produce abundance have a moral duty to provide basic food, shelter, and medical care for those who cannot care for themselves. I believe we have this duty even to those who can care for themselves but don’t. This world view requires compassion and a willingness to act on it.

My experience has taught me that we live in a nation in which a jury is more likely to convict a black defendant who has committed a crime against a white. Even the dullest of blacks know this. There would be a lot more black-on-white crime if this were not the case.

However, my experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.

I do not know the solution to this problem. I do know that it is wrong to deceive the public. Whatever solutions we seek should be based on the truth rather than what we would prefer was the truth. As for myself, I will continue do my duty to protect the rights of all who need me.

Here is where the article originally appeared.

  1. Fred OCliff seems to have trouble distinguishing between patterns, groups, statistics, and individuals, which makes him an actual racist, as opposed to the writer of the article and Allen West himself.

    • No, he’s basing this on actual experience; many of those in positions to actually analyze share his feelings precisely. He is very accurate in his honest assessment; there are definitely cultural differences, for whatever reason. And these things need to be addressed or our world will be forever violent, law enforcement merely a reactive symptom of the sick society.

    • I think after a certain point–and I’ve heard this especially from inner city school teachers–where you make judgements about race because your years of experience entitles you to make valid judgments. I’m sure any experienced person doesn’t blame everybody in a group, but you get assaulted so many times and good luck trying to convince him he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

  2. Newt Gingrich once said that an army of social workers needs to be sent into the underclass ghettos. I don’t know if that would solve all these problems. Maybe it would make a dent. It’s a vicious cycle of a poverty of values.

    • An army of social workers would be good, if said workers were godly people with good morals and sense. As it is, the vast majority of social workers are extremely “Liberal”, and would only exacerbate the situation.

  3. Mr West, life growing up was not a walk in the park, watch his story on UTube its about two hours long but well worth it. He a great Man today because he had a Real and loving mother who raised two young men by herself.

  4. The term “racism” was invented by communists, and is used to destroy cultures and defuse (and render impotent) those with differing points-of-view on “racial” issues.

    That being said . . .
    True “racism” is desirable as it merely cements cultural and social bonds that are necessary for a society to function and flourish.

    True “racism” merely denotes commonality of purpose and advancement within each respective racial group…

    Blacks have the NAACP and Congressional Black Caucus, Hispanics have La Raza and Mecha, Jews have the $PLC, ACLU and ADL. These are all “racist” organizations that serve to promote the interests (and political power) of their respective races.

    It is only whites who are castigated and threatened for attempting to show any signs of racial solidarity.

    Let’s look at what these “evil, privileged” whites have done for Western society and the world:

    1. “Civil-rights (for some)” laws (that effectively destroy “freedom of association” for whites, but not for other races) and do not apply to whites–only “people of color” are covered by these so-called “civil-rights (for some)” protections, (Ask “Attorney General” Eric holder about that).

    2. “Affirmative action” policies (that push better qualified whites out of positions and jobs that they would ordinarily qualify for) in favor of lesser-qualified minorities. In fact, “affirmative action” policies actually damage those minorities who are quite capable of “making it on their own” because they get “lumped in” with the groups that cannot make it on their own without “help”,

    3. “Contract set-asides” (that are specifically targeted for minorities (that white people are prohibited from bidding on) and immigration policies (that specifically exclude whites, most of who have skills that would benefit the USA) in favor of those from the third-world (with no marketable skills).

    4. Scholarships that specify particular ethnic groups are looked upon favorably by most people, save one–scholarships that are intended for whites only are looked upon as being “racist”, and therefore impermissible and improper in today’s racially-charged climate of “political correctness”.

    NO OTHER RACE (BUT WHITES) HAS BENT OVER BACKWARDS to assure that all non-white races receive a “fair shake” in being a part of American life, even to the detriment and social well-being of “our own kind” (whites).

    Whites possess an externalized altruism that no other races possesses. This externalized altruism that “looks out for the other guy” will be the demise of the white race. This altruism needs to be internalized and focused inward, just as other races have done. There is NO SHAME in looking out for one’s own kind.

    “Multiculturalism” and “diversity” are code-words for white genocide.

    • No other race than whites has colonized and subjugated people in practically every corner of the world. No other race than whites has broken apart ancient trading partnerships, created non-sensical political boundaries, and placed corrupt leaders into power for their own benefit. No other race than whites has siphoned natural resources from every other country to build their own wealth, then placed themselves under the delusion that their wealth was the result of some divine racial mandate. No other race than whites has traded 30 million people into slavery across the Atlantic Ocean. No other race than whites systematically destroyed thousands of Indigenous cultures through relocation and boarding schools, which stripped Indigenous children of their culture. No other race than whites in America systematically lynched black men without a trial. And no other race than whites carried out the Holocaust, whose sentiments are alive and well if Margaret Sheehy is any indication.

  5. Just as with radical Islam, the root cause of this problem is clearly CULTURE. A disproportionate number of black people revel in the gangsta-rap-thug culture. Most of the “artists” are black and most of the followers are black. A much smaller number of other races subscribe to that chit which is why they are represented at lower levels.

    Those that are so fortunate as to be led away from the culture of crime are just like everyone else… productive members of society.

    Those of us that condemn rather than “tolerate” the gangsta-rap thug culture are no more racist than those of us that condemn the stone-aged culture of radical Islam are “Islamophobes.”

  6. Best and bluntest gut wrenching tell-all of the criminal blacks and their mindset. I’m someone who loved and married one of these dudes and I’m just very grateful we didn’t have children , of course he’s back in prison and the legal system will release him out on parole and he’ll continue to seek out his victims because he is a very charming predator

  7. Let’s make a list of all the behaviors that are acceptable in our society and another list of those that are not. Then we can teach people what our society values and impose punishments for people that don’t want to follow the guidelines. Oh wait… we already have that.

    • Who decides the values? Some believe murder is wrong, but not adultery. Yet, both are in the 10 commandments. Muslims feel justified in raping women and children because the Quran allows it. Which list should we put it on? I would not agree with liberals making the list because they would include baby murder on the ok list. Liberals would balk if gay marriage were prohibited. Who decides?

  8. I don’t agree that supposedly black folks don’t reason as well, I know plenty of black folks that reason perfectly well and the truth of the matter is that the vast majority of white folks don’t reason all that damn well either, but the point the author makes that blacks live in a culture of no expectations, no demands, and no shame is spot on – I think its very much a problem of culture, and as long as black culture encourages black people to deliberately try to be as ignorant and ghetto as possible nothing is going to get any better, its like certain segments of the black population just try on purpose to fulfill as many of the negative stereotypes that people have of black people on purpose, like the poster before me said Vicious cycle of poverty of values

    • I didn’t interpret the author has having meant that black people in general are incapable of reason, but that the blacks whom he has defended don’t seem to be able to reason as well as those from other ethnicities. Keep in mind, he is referring to a subset of a subset – the criminal element. I also know many black people whose ability to reason is indistinguishable from any one else I know. I think the lesson to be taken away from this is that there is a cultural influence in much of the black community that may prevent the development of what most would consider normal values and ability to reason. And I agree that this cultural influence is in large part a result of “liberal” social policies over the years and bolstered by the rhetoric of many of the self-proclaimed “black leaders” in our society who profit from existence of a perpetual black underclass.

  9. “racist article you will ever read” too bad stating truthful observations from years of experience has to be considered “racist.”

    • I’d have to disagree that it’s racist. To me, racism is arbitrarily inserting race where it’s irrelevant or drawing unsubstantiated conclusions about race. (Jim is black. Jim is a thief. Therefore blacks are thieves.) This essay, as you point out, gives truthful observations about a systemic problem. I don’t see how that can be fairly called racist. But I see your point.

  10. It is still often forgotten that in the 60s, the government gave a check to poor moms who had children but took it away if there was a husband or responsible male in the home. The government rewarded families that were one parent homes. Sometimes, the mom preferred to be single so as to have a consistent income and the males just went along wanting them to “have it better”. This one parent home culture has been replicated down to multiple generations. We are squeamish to look at statistics that seem mean to people but single parenting takes a herculean effort.

  11. I had a very good black friend in my deep south hometown with a population of over half a million people, (predominantly black) my friend was a City Court Judge, a Judicial Court Judge, a Federal Judge , United States District Court Judge and was nominated by then President Clinton to a new seat and was confirmed by by he US Senate and received his Chief Judge commission. I happened to be in court one day and due to a huge docket slipped over to watch him in action. 90% of those appearing before him were black. His first question to the defendents was; did you graduate High School? Do you have a job? What are your plans for the future? Then he would proceed to read the riot act to them including how he worked three jobs to put himself through college how he finished High School in a neighborhood where a great many did not, how he found that his future was what he made it, he then went on to tell these young men and women what their future would hold if they did not care about themselves or working hard to be something.He was tough, he was fair and he was a champion of anyone who knew the value of hard work and wanted to improve themselves. My friend once said the black race has failed itself in education, hard work, and vision. We have become dependent on handouts and being lazy as a way of life. My friend passed from this life a few years ago as a shining example of what anyone can do no matter the circumstances. When I read this article (written so well) I thought of him as I know he dealt with much of the same and felt the same in many ways.

  12. As a former Marine, I saw the planned transformation of men from all walks of life into obedient, organized, purposeful and prideful individuals through rigorous training and indoctrination. Many of these were black men from a negative background who had no real future. The U.S. Marine Corps gave them pride in themselves and their personal accomplishments as well as membership in an esteemed group of men. The rules and regulations were clear and well defined as were the various punishments for transgressions. There were many great role models who provided “tough love”, sound advice and detailed directives about succeeding in the military.
    The change in the new Marines from the first day of boot camp to graduation day always astounds family and friends. The rowdy, impulsive and hard-headed “dude” no longer exists. The young man they see in front of them is now filled with a new perspective based on pride in self, pride in his own transformation and a vision of a successful life.
    The billons of dollars already spent on the issues surrounding black men in America has accomplished very little except to diminish self responsibility.
    A national “boot camp” followed by a military version and military service would go a long way to make productive individuals out of those destined to be street thugs.

    • Why? Because you don’t like it? Or you don’t want to believe it? Or because you know it’s not true? I’m serious. If you have real experience in this area, please take a few minutes and educate us. I’d like to hear a different perspective, if it’s based on real world experience rather than wishful thinking or conjecture.

      • So…this man’s experience of many years is not a logical premise? Do you feel that all of the problems in the black community are due to white privilege, or do you feel it stems from something else? What would be a logical premise in your opinion, and why is this premise not logical? I would like to hear your opinion based upon first hand experience.

      • Nope it’s called an anecdotal evidence doesn’t hold water in critical thinking. Sample is too small to be considered scientific. He’s not the only public defender, maybe the white criminals can afford real lawyers. He wouldn’t get away with that crap in court that probably why he plea bargains most of the time. It’s hogwash, referring to his experience is an appeal to authority. Another logical fallacy. Inductive argument lacks deductive validity. That’s why.

      • You are assuming he is talking about “all” blacks when he is not. If you can’t understand what he experienced then you can’t understand what he was talking about. He states in his article that he is talking about his experiences, not the whole population but with this group type, where he works.

      • And I’m saying his experience is just that. He’s just one lawyer among millions and not a very good one at that. His experience is relevant to what exactly?

      • And you make an assumption about his skill as a lawyer based on absolutely zero evidence, thereby invalidating everything you have said

      • A plea bargain is a good option for a guilty person. That’s a pretty easy concept to understand. This lawyer represents guilty people who are best served by plea bargaining. That doesn’t make him a bad defense attorney. Quite the opposite. Unless you are the victim of course.

      • Do you know that most lawyers plea bargain? Having studied law, I know this to be a fact. Most people do not want to spend time litigating cases and take chances of a higher sentence. Most cases plea out before they go to trial for that reason, to receive lower sentences and less fines. Most litigants prefer to pay a stiff fine over time served and many will opt for community service and fine to jail time.

      • You may be right, but before you go off accusing someone of being a “bad lawyer” because he plea bargains, you need to face facts. Don’t change the subject because you aren’t as informed as you think you are.

      • Right Raf, that is HIS experience, he wasn’t talking about what everyone else has experienced but his own. And what do you base your assumption that he is not a very good one? Do you know him personally? Have you seen his stats or are you just saying that because of the article he wrote that you don’t seem to not like or agree with?

      • So you feel that there are no problems within the black community, or if problems do exist it is the fault of the white community? Is all evidence anecdotal if it is personal experience? If that is the case, then personal experiences and observations would not be admissible in court. I’m in a branch of law enforcement, and I have had similar experiences. Is my personal experience also anecdotal?

      • Yes all evidence is anecdotal if it’s personal experience. “Witness testimony is a common form of evidence in law, and law has mechanisms to test witness evidence for reliability or credibility. Legal processes for the taking and assessment of evidence are formalized. Some witness testimony may be described as anecdotal evidence, such as individual stories of harassment as part of a class action lawsuit. However, witness testimony can be tested and assessed for reliability.” You can actually deductively validate the argument in a courtroom.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anecdotal_evidence

      • Okay, so how do we judge this man as unreliable if we can’t determine if he is reliable? And you’re not answering my other questions.

      • Yes there are problems in the black community like there are problems in every community. The object of the debate in the relationship between the communities. Pointing to the problems in the black community is just a red herring. A diversion not to talk about the real issue.

      • The real issue is black people in general, young black men in particular are dehumanized and not treated like individuals. That “lawyer” speaks of all his black clients as if it was the same person. He talks about his clients challenging him as any person facing hard time wont ask questions. Another issue is using those fake stories to change the subject of the conversation.

      • So you’re saying that white people dehumanize black people? How are we doing that? The lawyer is frustrated because his clients are doing things that are not in their own best interests. Do you think that black people have any responsibility for the problems that are being faced by some of the black communities? Lack of education, children becoming parents, no responsibility being taken for children, high rate of crime, gang membership, etc. Is that all being caused by white people? And if the answer to that question is yes, then isn’t that stereotyping and dehumanizing white people?

      • That’s not an answer. I’m asking you questions. White people are confused as to what we’re doing to oppress, or as you put it “dehumanize”, black people. I’m asking you what we’re doing wrong.

      • What is done with this “article”. Some anonymous “lawyer” takes to the internet to complain about all his problems with black clients. No name no face no way to verify his story. But for some reason that has nothing to do with the color of my skin I’m supposed to take him and his story at face value? What am I six years old? Look inward your stereotypes and prejudice are your own to deal with. I am not responsible for white people slanted perceptions.

      • Again, you’re not addressing the issues here. Forget the lawyer. He may or may not be right in what he is saying. Despite that, there are still problems and misconceptions between black people and white people that need to be resolved. These problems are being fueled largely by people like White Supremacists, The New Black Panthers, etc. I don’t want to stereotype. I don’t want to have misconceptions. I want to be able to talk with black people about our problems and try to solve them. That’s what I’m trying to do here. I want to understand how you feel, and I want you to understand how I feel. I genuinely want to know what white people are doing wrong. I think that your perceptions of white people may be kind of slanted, too, if this is your only argument.

      • He cannot answer honestly because that would put the lie to his entire premise. He would have to admit he is wrong and, like his pal “Ruckus”, he will not do that.

      • I suppose that you’re right. It makes me sad. I think that if we could communicate, civilly, with each other we could solve some of the problems in our country. We need to start finding the things that we have in common, or the government is going to succeed in tearing us apart.

      • It is sad. His premise is that it’s “whitey’s” fault and no amount of proof or conversation will change that. Just as you cannot reason with a Klan’s man, you cannot reason with him. Which is why this problem has become so difficult. There are too many like him… a perpetual victim.

      • So crime statistics, which are not anecdotal, indicate that blacks commit crimes at much higher percentages than other racial groups. Does this mean that you don’t believe that either? Or are crime stats not to be believed because they are, while empirically sound, uncomfortable?

      • I don’t think this public defender was telling us anything other than his observations. At least I didn’t detect anything like opinion or cause, only observation. Years of interacting int he same situation with people of various race with the common denominator of committing a crime. Nothing more, nothing less.

      • This man’s experiences is just that…THIS MANS EXPERIENCES! Millions upon MILLIONS of black people are HARD WORKING people…just like WHITE FOLKS! You wouldn’t know that from reading Allen West blog. You’d come out believing that they only successful black people are conservatives

      • Thats not true. What I got from Col West article is that what this man experienced. I didnt draw conclusions that “all” blacks are not capable of reason because Col West or this guy wrote this story because I know hundreds of blacks now and over the course of my years have met thousands. This man based this conclusion on a group of people with whom he had experience with as criminals. He did not say “ALL” blacks are incapable of reason but that this group of blacks that he had experience with.

      • Read the comments below…it seems that most of them believe that this applies to the entire BLACK RACE….its sad to believe that white people feel this way about black people

      • Again you are lumping all whites in one basket as did those who you are claiming are lumping all blacks in one basket…. And you are right, its sad to see some whites who still believe that it would include all blacks… but I have also seen several on here say that they disagree that “all” blacks are without reason… More agree that they disagree…but you never seem to take note of those do you?

      • I don’t believe that’s the case. We never seem to hear about the hard working anybody. Over the years I’ve had many black friends, and known many whites that I wouldn’t give the time of day to. Seems to have more to due with respect and lack of respect. (I think that makes sense)

      • But by reading the articles that ALLEN WEST post and to read the comments….you never get anything POSITIVE about black people. Why all the negative all the time?

      • Do you think if you keep shoving the words BLACK RACE in people’s faces it’s going to somehow make you special?

      • I agree with you. There are many, many successful black people in all walks of life and of all political persuasions. I even mentioned that in a comment above. I think that the man who wrote this article was referring to the class of black people who commit crimes in the area where he lives. I’ll even take it a step further and say that people of all cultures who have an entitlement mentality tend to exhibit many of these same behaviors. But I have noticed that some people in the black community do seem to have some cultural idiosyncrasies not exhibited by other ethnicities. I truly do not mean any disrespect, but I’m a Funeral Director and a Coroner, and there are times when there is a lot of chaos at black funerals and at black crime scenes. Screaming, hysteria, hatefulness toward me for being white, blaming others, bad language, fights breaking out, etc. I do not see this kind of behavior as often with people of other cultures. So, for me, my experience both in law enforcement and in funeral service bear out what this attorney is claiming.

      • So that would mean your experiences are only your’s and all the judging you have been doing is only your own and each black out there screaming racism is basing this on his experiences……hmmm you just blew your own arguments haha

      • On what do you base your assumption about what this man has experienced? In other words, who’s logic are you basing your argument?

      • Do you realize you are contradicting yourself? You are right, this is HIS experience and it is his “logical premise” to draw this conclusion because of what he experiences… now if he claimed to have been conducting a study on where or not Blacks can reason, then this would be a wrong conclusion because its not conducted on a wider range of people, such as a certain number from more than just his practice, it would have to cover a whole city or state or even the world as Blacks are not just located here in the states but world wide…

      • “Worse nightmare”. I don’t think so, my friend. Possibly more of your education should have been in the real world, not all those propaganda books.

      • You aren’t even thinking critically! You are making assumption about people you don’t know and trying to make yourself sound “smart” by arguing the same points they bring up, but somehow twisting them and making no sense what so ever.

      • Regardless of public opinion, science – specifically, the science of “genetics” – rules – sorry. There is ZERO difference between “black” people and “white” people – physically. Got that? None.

        Well, other than the obvious skin pigmentation.

        We’re not talking about the differences between a giraffe & a turtle ….. we’re talking about the EXACT same species. Two arms, two legs – here’s a biggie! – a larynx (“voice box”), slight differences in assorted physical *features* due to genetics, mutations and evolution since the last ice age.

        Our internal organs are the same, in the same location. Our skeletons have the same number of bones ….. Is this sinking in yet?!?!?

        You never hear about “O-positive Negro blood” or “AB-negative Caucasian blood ……. And why not? Because other than the scientific classifications – A, B, O, and AB – and the obvious Rh (rhesus) factors – positive or negative – THEY’RE IDENTICAL!!!!!

        Try to “cross-pollinate” (breed) a turtle with a giraffe – or vice versa. Won’t work …. ever.

        But between the same, IDENTICAL species – homo sapiens – no problems …. except in a blind society. Or maybe that’s a society blinded by hatred – based almost solely on …. appearance.

        No, the differences between “us” are cultural. Societal. Identical – as can be – at birth; everything changes due to …… up-bringing.

        People – of ANY “color” – aren’t born bad. They’re exposed to influences every conscious minute after birth that will influence – likely in some form, forever – how they will become the person they will be.

        Nor is anyone “good” in the womb ……….

        We are pre-disposed to *nothing* other than our genetic destiny.

        We *learn* – we’re “taught” and choose to absorb – our “behavior”.

        Everyone … take a step back. Take a deep breath.

        GROW THE F*** UP!!!!

        And stop killing your fellow humans – your own species! – your post-Ice Age relatives. We’re all just leaves on the same HUGE “tree” of the evolution on mankind …. Deal with that. Or not. Your choice. Stay ignorant forever; your call.

        HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015, MY FELLOW *HUMAN* BEINGS – EVERYWHERE!!!!!

      • Like I said they walked early because you taught them early. African cultures do the same things because they can’t drag the babies to the filed. Does not make white babies genetically inferior was my point. Thanks for empirical evidence and congrats.

      • I have 8 daughters, 14 granddaughters, 7 grandsons, racial make up is Asian, White, Black, Hispanic. My first daughter walked by 6 mo, my other daughters walked from 8mo to 13mo, my grand daughters all walked before 9 mo, my grand sons all walked at 11 to 14mo. There was no difference due to race, but gender did seem to favor when they walked as well as toilet training. All my kids (grandkids included) that are in school all excel and have been put in gifted programs where all have been on the deans list and hold GPA’s of 3.7 to 4.0. (sorry bragging a bit), My point is, they are all of varying races, from white to black to Asian to Hispanic and they all are very intelligent. When I was in high school, I was pregnant with my first and that was when I learned that parents who spend more time with their children have children who learn faster and have higher IQ’s than children whose parents are too busy to spend time with them.

      • LOL you have every reason to brag. And you are right. My point was the walking is a priority over reading to the kid in a tribal environment. That’s why they tend to walk earlier in general (of course every kid is different).

      • Could be then that they had to start learning earlier due to where they live but in the US what would it be… then we can’t compare tribal to urban? The indigenous people in the rain forest would be different than those in Africa and so on. Now compare the blacks with with Africans who still live in tribes.

      • On this note, if all students who are racially, diverse as well as gender, religious, culturally etc all take the same classes, with the same teachers, then all take the same IQ test they are culturally biased? All students are given the same chance as each other in other words…. can we prove they are culturally biased?

      • Nope. Intelligence is “learned”. Your “I.Q.” is simply a contrived “yardstick” to measure how much you’ve learned, WHAT you’ve learned – and how well you’ve retained it.

        Nothing to do with “race” – unless we’re talking about, say, the Indianapolis 500.

        A child born in deepest, darkest Africa this very day – with the proper up-bringing – could fly the most technologically-advanced rocket ship to Mars!!!!

        For the “white” comparison, let’s avoid the conflict of theory and bump heads with the “science” of behavior and up-bringing.

        I can prove that not all is well – not only in the almost *EXACT* same species – by skin color – or even among “kin”. How – and why? – could two brothers, for example, turn our so RADICALLY different?!?!?!? Same parents ….. as far as anyone knows.

        Here goes ……

        Former President Jimmy Carter, former Governor of Georgia. United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland ….. with a degree in Nuclear Engineering. Hell, I had trouble even spelling those words correctly!!!!!

        And his no-account, p.o.s. po-dunk drunken brother Billy ………………….

        F***, until “college age”, raised under the same roof!!!!!!!!!!!!

        One made some pretty savvy choices, can’t we agree? The “other guy”? Not so much ……….

      • So do you have any statistics to show that there is no racial difference in IQ? Because if IQ is simply “learned”, and not inherited (i.e. genetic) then there should be an equal comparison, because everybody learns. A child going to a good school should have roughly the same IQ, regardless of race. Same for those attending bad schools, and this should be empirically, statistically provable, and not just through anecdotal evidence (such as the Jimmy Carter example above). Yet you know this is not true. The Bell Curve proves otherwise. Why is it that everyone can accept that there is an inherited component to eye color, height, temperament, mental illness, diseases, etc, etc, yet there can be absolutely no inherited component to intelligence? And for Rafael X, if current IQ tests are supposedly culturally biased, then why not use one that is not? And exactly what is this supposed “bias”? There are many IQ tests that measure problem solving, knowledge and the other quantifiable components of intelligence. Even if it isn’t perfect, IQ testing is still a pretty good yardstick. The best available anyway. Even if it doesn’t fit your narrative.

      • I wish you were right, but you are dead wrong…there are medicines that work better on whites, and others that work better on blacks. There are differences in bone structure, and yes, even mentally…this is why blacks dominate most sports; their body structure lends itself to such activities much better than whites. Whites excel academically at a much greater IQ level than blacks.
        There are exceptions in every race…but…the truth is, that there ARE differences…

      • There are physical differences. Anthropologists will tell you that and to be honest any science class, especially Anatomy and Physiology. You can take the skeletal frame and determine most times what racial group they belong to as well as DNA. Although we can give blood and organs to each other, and we are all human, there are differences other than skin colour.

      • Don’t you understand this is HIS truth according to his experience as a PD where he works? How can you determine this is not true if you did not experience what he did? Its like working at a store. You get all kinds of people coming into your store, but you pretty much know what they will buy based on your experience working there over so many years. This is how each store determines what to sell in their stores. Not all stores such as Wal-Mart will sell the same things or will stock more of somethings as opposed to other things because of the make up of their customers and what they have experienced in sales…. The demographics determine what should be sold thus the experience come into play… same with this guy… He dealt with mostly black clients and he has to learn over the years what best helps his clients. He learns about them personally because he has to defend them or help them get lower sentences. So his experiences has helped him see what most of his clients are like what sort of crimes they commit and so forth…

      • Comparison to Wal-Mart is a false equivalence. Wal-Mart samples all the customers that comes through it’s stores to make those decisions not just those who go through one cash register.

      • Are you kidding me Raf? That is what I just said…. Again you miss the point. He is talking about the people who he has served NOT the whole race. He drew his conclusions about HIS experiences about the people where he served… do you understand? Seriously Raf, you have no understanding of human behaviour, and especially no idea how our laws and court systems work… stick to IT…

  13. There may be other factors that contribute to the outcome of a black person, genetics, drugs, lack of education, etc. I think it’s mostly a vicious cycle that they are living in. One generation down to the next, and so on. But I believe it’s mostly due to how they grow up. Usually the father is a thug himself, whether he lives in or out of the home. The mother may or may not do drugs, but she doesn’t know any other way to live. I picture a home where the mom and dad are fighting all the time. Mostly about money and their lifestyle. Just look at the areas where they live? Dad may be mean and hit mom. The kids see this. Dad leaves and mom is alone with the kids and doesn’t know how to take care of them or bring them up properly. She can’t turn to her mom and dad because it’s the same way she was brought up. The whole situation is an absolute mess. The woman’s son’s and daughter’s go out to escape the home. But they end up hanging out with kids just like them. Then they turn into carbon copies of their parents. How do we break this cycle? How do we change the parents into becoming decent people, proud people and working people? They have to want more for themselves than what they have. They don’t want to go to school, or college, so they can find a decent paying job. If they did they could live someplace decent and send their kids to a good school. Life would be easier and the kids would grow up seeing this and will want the same thing for themselves. And if this goes on long enough, the cycle will be broken. Life will improve and things will be better. The solution is easier than actually doing it. That is going to be the hard part. And I’m not exactly sure where to begin.

  14. Somewhere in Hell, the old KKK members must be looking up and smiling. Two generations of well-intentioned government policies and giveaway programs have done more to create a perpetual black underclass than they were able to make with 100 years of cross-burnings, lynch mobs, and Jim Crow laws.

    • Agreed, current welfare programs do NOTHING but create welfare recipients, and those welfare recipients do NOTHING but create generation after generation of future welfare recipients.

      • I worked as a caseworker with the Missouri Department of Family Services and this I know….Majority of people on welfare DON’T WANT TO BE ON WELFARE!!!

      • Perhaps where you work they don’t. Where I live they do. But its not blacks who are the main recipients of the welfare program here, its White and Hispanic.

      • Yes, and there are almost 6 times as many whites in the population. So by doing the math, this means any individual black person is about 6 times more likely to be on welfare than any white individual.

      • You may be right, but like I said, the county where I live, there are more whites on welfare and receiving food stamps than minorities.

      • Then they need to get off their asses, use the financial aid that’s due to them and get some marketable job skills.

      • I agree….we use to have a program that eliminated all the obstacles that prevented people from getting jobs. It was very successful but it was cut! We gave them daycare, transportation and education and the majority that went through the program was very successful. I still keep in contact with one and she is a HR director at a large company!
        If you expect people to get off of welfare by getting a $7.00 job. That is not going to happen

    • I agree with what you say, but I take some issue with the “well intentioned” part. No doubt there were a few well-intentioned people among the proponents of these idiotic policies, but I (and many black Conservatives) maintain that these were malignantly designed to create a dependent and easily controlled voting bloc. Now, we are at the point of the Left realizing their long-standing dream of a standing army of criminals which they want to use to keep “us” in check.

    • Blacks kill more Blacks each year than the KKK did since 1865. 75% of Black babies in NYC are aborted which has the founder of planned parenthood smiling in her grave. Liberal women and racist just love them some abortion.

  15. “I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races. I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people. And I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. … And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.” – Abraham Lincoln in his fourth debate with Stephen Douglas in the campaign for the United States Senate on September 18th of 1858.

  16. By reading these comments its clear to me that most don’t know ANY black people. Allen West is not the only successful black man in america…there are MILLIONS of successful black people in amerca. The criminals are the FEW but yet you seem to believe that the MAJORITY of black people are criminals are lazy or don’t work and on welfare!
    I’m sorry but when you have a article that states black people can’t control their impulses …IGNORANCE is all that is!
    Once again I ask ALLEN WEST to post a positive article about the black community or black people…HE NEVER DOES….you have to ask yourselves…WHY?

    • Man you have to put down the kool-aid and admit the realities that we all see and know. White people are noticing more and more everyday what is going on and the last year in that regard has been historic. This article is totally right, and I would add that even among successful blacks there is still a tremendous problem with their values, morality, and behavior. The black church is failing blacks terrifically either for political or other reasons. I commend Allen West for stepping up and dealing with reality and proving that it is cultural more than anything else.

    • “Success” as defined by whom? Those who pushed them up the ladder via affirmative action? Success at destroying White civilization is what that amounts to.

      “Ignorance”? I’ve spent my entire life living in and/or working in the “hood”, so my perspective is based on anything BUT “ignorance”. Only a dishonest fool would suggest that “most Blacks are successful”.

      • If left to their own abilities most would starve (just look at every country in Africa or any other Black run neighborhood, city, or country). Thank your Jewish daddy (Uncle Samuelstein) for the section 8 housing, the food stamps/cards, the free ride, and all the benefits that the truly racist affirmative action programs provide you with. If accepting/demanding handouts equals “success” in your eyes, then you have in fact been quite the “success”.

  17. First, one must understand and accept the fact that we are NOT “all the same”. Anyone who promotes the idea that we are (“all the same”) is either dishonest (be that with you or with themselves) or simply incapable of independent thought (as they parrot the same politically correct dogma we have all been indoctrinated with). The Jewish media (yes, I know, the truth is “antisemitic”, but they have a monopoly over it nonetheless) has deliberately and quite maliciously taught us all this lesson in order to facilitate their genocidal agenda (multiculturalism is imposed on every White country and in White countries only). That’s why Whites are immediately condemned as “racists” for daring to even whisper about the individual crimes or the overall agenda being carried out against us.

    Sure, there are standard deviations from the norm (good Blacks, who sorta kinda fit in and might even contribute something positive to our society), but they are exactly that: the EXCEPTIONS, not the rule. And in most instances, and I know this sounds quite “racist” as well, those “Blacks” have some White ancestry. Either way, you can’t ignore the behavioral tendencies of the group based on individual exceptions. Well, you can, but you would be doing so at your own demise.

    Some snakes don’t bite, but would you trust the next one you encounter not to bite you? Racial profiling and generalizing are both survival tactics, and a person walking down a dark alley would be wise to do a little bit of both. Sure, an individual can earn your trust and respect, regardless of their race, but you’d be a damned fool (and probably dead) if you trusted EVERY Black person blindly just because you know one or two “really cool Blacks”.

    MOST Blacks fail to fit into civilized society (be that here in America or anywhere else) and they have a deep hatred towards White people (they have no problem generalizing or holding you accountable for crimes your ancestors did not even commit), because they are different and they know it. And for Whites to ignore those same facts and these racial realities is to condemn our children to a Black and bloody future, where those “good Blacks” will be unwilling, if not incapable of helping them (why let it get to that point in the 1st place?).

    But then again, why would anyone expect the average Black person to fit into, let alone excel in a civilized White society? Once more, only a brainwashed slave or a dishonest person ever would. The Jews certainly didn’t believe they were beneficial to us when they brought them here, when they spearheaded the civil rights movement, when they implemented race based quota laws (institutionalized racism against Whites), when they forcefully integrated us, when they rewrote our “history” (ex. Jews, not Whites, orchestrated the African Slave Trade), and as they continue flooding our borders with more Blacks and other non-Whites.

    “But, but, but it’s not Black people, it’s their culture” – some liberal/Jew/Black is certain to say.

    Well, their “culture” is a direct representation of their racial norm. It wasn’t imposed on them, they created it. Not all of them fall in line with it, but most gravitate towards the mean, because (once more) it’s who they are, as a collective. To state the obvious.

    “Socioeconomic” excuses? How many once White (safe, crime-free, clean, and functional) neighborhoods must we witness turn Black (unsafe, crime-riddled, filthy, and dysfunctional) before we accept the facts that A. we are NOT the same and B. it’s not the White man’s fault that Blacks fail to fit in, fail to create anything, and cannot even maintain that in which we have built for them?

    Again, we cannot get caught up on the exceptions, we must know and accept the average Black for what he is. And that is to say, he is incapable of functioning in a White civilized society. “Superior” or “inferior” have no meaning or place in the conversation, it’s simply a matter of incompatibility. And until we BOTH realize we are NOT the same neither of us will ever truly be free.

    Blacks don’t want to be policed by White cops (I don’t blame them), and NONE of us would want to be governed by Jews or anyone else outside of our group. That is, if we knew any better. I mean, why would Whites desire to be ruled by those who are openly hostile towards them? When every group, party, platform, agency, association, and organization in the government is actively working in Black, Brown, Red, Brown, Yellow or Jewish interests, they are in direct opposition to the White “majority” and will continue their agenda until we are a majority no more. Yet we are supposed to be “OK” with this? And if not then we are certain to be labeled “racists”, “White supremacists”, “honkeys”, “crackers”, “bigots”, and “Nazis” (even by our -brainwashed- fellow Whites). Why? Well, the reasons for it should be obvious by now. They want to take everything we have (to include our future) and they don’t even want us speaking up in our own defense (no matter how calmly, peacefully, and apologetically we might be in doing so). They can DO anything they want to us,. but we are not even “allowed” to whisper of their crimes against us.

    Yet, yeah, sure thing, we are the “racists”.

    PS – censorship is a Jewish necessity, so this comment will (undoubtedly) be removed. But what does that tell those of you who see it before they come around to delete it? Am I really being “hateful”? Have I suggested violence? What here is worthy of being censored? When is “free speech” no longer free, and who does or does not get to participate in the discussion? Why are we not even allowed to question them on anything they do or to even call them out by name?

    Yeah, well, those of you who think for yourselves will get it, while those of you who are incapable of independent thought will continue on following the mainstream blindly, just going with the flow and never questioning anything you have been taught. So be it. On with the typical name calling and attacks on the messenger. zzzzzzz

  18. The author of the article states clearly that his writing was based solely upon what he personally had experienced with defendents, and had slowly come to realize as “a truth” in his opinion based on those experiences. However, Clarence Conner is correct (in my opinion) in stating that to fix the problem “takie away the incentives that promote the bad culture”….create “some job assignments. Penalize for immoral behavior and reward for socially responsible behavior.” Sadly, this will not happen until we, the people, have had enough and reflect that disgust with our elected officials at the polls!!! AND we need like-minded citizens to step forward and take leadership roles. BUT the whole system of politics creates an enormous barrier for the average citizen to break through and get a slot on the ballot. THIS is where we need to put our STRENGTH and $$$ to work to initiate change…because it won’t happen untill WE CLEAN HOUSE first and then CHANGE OUT THE FURNITURE COMPLETELY, not just rearrange it!!!

    • You need to wake up, Sparky. PEOPLE of good will – made up of people of ALL races -are impacted by the cultural blight on humanity at the root of crime problem. There is no race problem and “black people” have never once been attacked by Allen West or any other person willing to speak truthfully on the issue.

      What Col West and other people of good will who happen to have ebony skin bring to the table is a glimmer of a chance to break through the race-obsessed left’s veil of BS by opening eyes and promoting real-world conversation.

      Here it is: no person is made any better or worse by the color of their skin and no person has any more or less opportunity because of it. We are made different by the choices we make and the way we choose (or are raised) to present ourselves to society. Period.

      You want to make a difference? Run away from the race-baiting scum that have jumped in front of your parade as quickly as humanly possible. They have a vested interest in keeping you hanging from the bottom rung and being really, really angry about it and will do anything they can to accomplish that goal.

    • Stunning that you think pointing out a problem and wanting to talk about it and fix it as negative. Oh well I don’t care, stay right where you are, 13% of the country with only a small percentage becoming successful while the rest of the country goes right by you.

  19. You black savages need to quit practicing the crap hip hop/thug which eschews hard work, proper grammar, respect, education, restraint, self control and everything else that’s good and honorable in the world. You black ghetto savages are responsible for your own poverty, and lack of success. You people get everything handed to you in order to better your lives, but you would rather make bastards, smoke the crack pipe, drink the 40’s, and puff on a nasty black and mild cigar. Single mothers are largely responsible for the problems in the black community. Black people need to look in the mirror, take personal responsibility, buck up, get some job skills, clean your crap culture up and go to work.

    Pookie, Ray Ray, and Hambone are not role models-they are scum. Black people need to look at people like Col West, Clarence Thomas, Ben Carson, Larry Elder, Mia Love, Thomas Sowell, and Walter E Williams as role models instead of the gang banging ghetto savage down the street.

    • Does this article not make you sad in any way for the state of affairs in the black community?
      Why do you use the phrasing that you are “always trying to please white folks”?? Why can you not take another path and try to “please” the black community by TEACHING the young that living off welfare, being mothers by age 15, going in and out of jail is only a path to failure.
      Why don’t you TEACH these young people that to be a failure in life does not make one more black………….it just makes you a failure at life and THAT is a waste of human life and potential.

      • No, this article doesn’t make me sad. I and only a few others here know that this doesn’t represent the BLACK COMMUNITY as a whole. There are hard working, successful people that are in the black community!

      • Yes there are many who become successful in the black community…like Condi Rice, Colin Powell, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, and many others. The ones who are successful and conservative are called a lot of nasty names and the libs and many in the black community try to destroy them personally and professionally.

      • I’m sorry colleen but there are more successful black folks than conservatives….also…all those you’ve named doesn’t GO TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY!!! At least Holder and Sharpton WENT THERE!!!

      • Holder went there to look for racist reasons to try to subvert the legal process and investigation.
        Al not so Sharpton went there for racist reasons as well which was to stir up more trouble and make untrue allegations. He also went there just like Jesse hi Jackson to get “donations” from the very people they do not help.
        As for your claim of more successful blacks than whites………..THAT is complete lie.

      • Did you know that there ARE more successful Asians and Hispanics then blacks, wonder why that is…oh yes the country is racist, which is an interesting concept until you look at all the successful blacks, then your theory just sort of flies out the window doesn’t it. Which is why the only whites who buy into this whole racism thing is a small section of white liberals.

      • They don’t go out to harm the black communities by using them for their personal poltical agendas and for the money to fatten their wallets.

      • Ben Carson grew up in the getto of Detroit. His mother did him and his brother right. Carson is a neurological. He was the first doctor to separate conjoined twins at the head. His brother is a actual rocket scientist. So he has been there and lived it. I hope he runs for president. I would vote for him.

  20. “Anecdotal evidence is often unscientific or pseudoscientific because various forms of cognitive bias may affect the collection or presentation of evidence. For instance, someone who claims to have had an encounter with a supernatural being or alien may present a very vivid story, but this is not falsifiable. This phenomenon can also happen to large groups of people through subjective validation.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anecdotal_evidence#Faulty_logic

      • You can look up the statistics if you want.
        My brother in law is a retired federal indigent defense attorney. He has said these very same things for many, many years.

      • See “appeal to probability”. Your inductive argument lacks deductive validity. See also “appeal to authority” both logical fallacies. Two persons personal experience does not constitute fact.

      • Ok this was fun, not educational because you didn’t really say much, but..we all have handicaps…tata

      • Ok this was fun, not educational because you didn’t really say much, but..we all have handicaps…see ya

      • You have to be able to critically think to have rational decisions. The simple minded only think on the surface… Never a deep thought. Therefore not thinking of consequences…like a young child would when stealing a cookie from the jar. A lot of ppl are simple minded. They were never made to think critically. Crappy mothers and fathers.

      • But crime statistics are empirical evidence and they overwhelmingly indicate that blacks commit crimes at much higher rates than other racial groups.

      • They indicate that blacks get convicted at a higher rate. They are convicted at a higher rate because they are targeted at higher rate. No one knows who commits the unsolved crimes which are about 70% of all crimes committed. Only means that white offenders are less likely to convicted which proves the bias of the system. See we can make numbers say whatever we want.

      • I don’t need to look up the stats! I know for every 1 of these…there a millions that are not like the one! I focus on THOSE POSITIVE stories….Allen has a problem with focus on the negative!

      • Because a certain section of blacks keep whining, keep pointing out their color and their hardships and doing NOTHING to help themselves, commiting the majority of the crimes and then saying the reason so many blacks are in prisons is because the country is racist, no, it’s because they are commiting the crimes. You know the section of blacks I’m talking about and you know the section West is talking about. The ones who refuse to do what every other American does, get off your ass get an education get a job…here’s the answer to your issue….try thinking of yourself as American, just American.

      • Uncle, your numbers are off by allot, bit I agree with your point, and even most Conservatives would also agree, there are by far many more good Black law abiding folk in America than bad..The point Allen is trying to make is, what are we doing to help change the part thats giving Black culture the negative stereotypes? Our Liberal GOVT is not helping at all, and seems to only add fuel to the fire.Your disdain is pointed at the wrong people.

      • statisical truth, no one wants to believe. i think uncle ruckus needs a lesson in black history. people give them an entire month every year and they still don’t know black history. but then some are just born to be ignorant, and won’t learn any way. he enjoys his stupidity.

  21. Sooooo my two cents….My second husband was Brazilian and he hated blacks. HATED them. Then one day we went to pick his family up at the airport and I almost fell off my chair. My jaw dropped so far you could have flown a 747 into my mouth. I just stared at him in disbelief and he knew what I was thinking as he said. I meant American blacks. There walking towards me was THE blackest man I have ever seen. Blacker than black like coal black. THEN I saw a picture of his grandmother who was blacker than him. Later he said since he got here he notices how uneducated blacks were and they had a chip on their shoulder. How rude and ignorant they were and just nasty. I told him they are not all like that just seems the city ones. He said Brazil has slaves too but they are over it and have assimilated into society. They live with everyone and they get along with everyone and theres a large population of mixed like he was. Most ALL brazillians are a great mix and they all get along for the most part. BUT his observations with American blacks made me more aware of things. Evin my black friends said they call blacks like that Ghetto. Even they know the difference of black people and like Ghetto blacks. Lots of reasons why. Education Nurture nature. BUT it always comes back to what God said. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but powers and principalities. There is a massive demonic blindness over the American black. HATE is a generational curse. So is Poverty and Dependance. JUST as the black man was getting the freedom and opportunities of whites LBJ came along and threw those changes right back on them and they fell for it. For a few pennies and a free phone blacks have allowed themselves to become good slaves on this great plantation called America. Be a good boy and vote Democrat e to keep yourself fed. Dont think for yourself just do what your told. Live where we tell you eat how much we tell you and we will feed you. Just be willing to be community organized and do what we want when we want. AND blacks fell for it. Blacks CRY equality all the time but when a blacks reaches that point of success in life by hard work and education the black community calls them an Uncle tom and traitor and whitey. Its CRAZY! They ONLY difference between the slave masters of old and Al Sharpton, The Reverand (cough cough) Jackson and the rest is the whip they use. Before they would whip a man physically to keep him in line. NOW they verbally and mentally whip the black man to to what they want. WHY else would a group of people constantly vote for and defend the VERY PEOPLE who had originally enslaved them? THE Democrats had the slaves. They Democrats were the KKK. The Democrats started Planned parenthood to get rid of blacks. For a group of people who are very religious they sure let satan control them. Yes its nature and nurture and all the other reasons people have said but the one reason it all works is because of Satan. People we are NOT fighting against flesh and blood but powers and principalities in the Heavenlies. The only way any of this is going to change NOW is for individual blacks to come to the knowledge of this great spiritual deceit and pray over they people. Like Reverend Manning to Allen West to all the Doctors and Lawyers and Indian Chief out there that have broke the chains of this spiritual deception we as people of Christ and a fellow American need to support and stand with our black neighbors that too have seen the light and support them in any way we can, and PRAY!!!!!!

  22. To the black race ((USA)) …
    Apology to the Black Race:

    To the entire Black race living in America, we, the Adamic, pink
    complexioned race (better known to you as the White race) that came to
    these shores from Europe, England, Scotland, Ireland, and Iceland,
    apologize for freeing you from slavery by fighting a horrible war among
    ourselves that cost the lives of almost two million of our own race. We
    apologize for continuing to fight among ourselves over that very issue,
    even though you’ve never told us you appreciate our freeing you.

    We apologize for splitting to pieces our entire race the world over to
    take sides with you to help you survive and become a freer race. We
    apologize for forcing the rest of the world to outlaw the slavery which
    your ancestors had practiced for thousands of years, even though many
    nations on your home continent still practice it today.

    We
    apologize for thinking we could civilize you when you have proven that
    it is indeed an impossible feat, a feat beyond anything we could have
    ever imagined.

    We apologize for introducing Christianity to you
    and dragging you away from the Voodoo you previously followed, although
    you have managed to sneak that religion back into cultic Christianity
    and our people have accepted it, which is witnessed by their animalistic
    whooping and hollering and stomping and screaming instead of
    respectfully worshiping our God as they ought to.

    We apologize
    for teaching you to add and subtract (what little you can), thereby
    enabling you to run a household and pay your bills (what few you will)
    and count your children other than on your fingers and sometimes toes
    when you have so many you run out of fingers.

    We apologize for
    providing you with medical care instead of leaving you under the witch
    doctors you used before we arrived, as a result of which you have been
    able to survive all sorts of diseases to multiply in massive numbers
    beyond what you could have without these aides.

    We apologize for
    building schools for you which we have had to repair over and over after
    you vandalized them beyond use. We apologize for inventing computers
    and the Internet, neither of which you use very much, but when you do
    use them it’s mostly to bash our race.

    We apologize for building
    factories and businesses that employ you, if you so desire to work. We
    apologize for creating millions of bureaucratic jobs within our
    government system simply to give you employment, instead of leaving you
    to find work on your own.

    We apologize for promoting and buying
    your music, although you refuse to buy ours. We apologize for talking
    and acting as you do, although you refuse to talk and act as we do.

    We apologize for placing you in our movies and TV shows and elevating
    you to a fictional, heroic level that you have never reached in real
    life. We apologize for creating this false image of yourselves in your
    minds, for we realize after 400 years of trying to help you that you
    cannot solve problems and provide leadership and create original
    thoughts; and the image we’ve placed in your minds causes you to live in
    a delusional world. For that we truly apologize.

    We apologize
    for creating quota systems and forced employment programs to make sure
    you have the best jobs, if you so desire to work. We apologize for
    thinking we could educate you so that you could learn to build and help
    others, when you obviously have only the ability to tear down and take
    from others.

    We apologize for giving you welfare and food stamps,
    with the result that for four generations over half of your race has
    not had to work, except in makeshift type of jobs in our governments and
    bureaucracies.

    We apologize for promoting your children in
    school as if they could understand basic arithmetic and grammar, such as
    multiplication and past participles, when we should have made sure they
    were accustomed to manual labor so that we would not have had to make
    up jobs for them in our governments dusting seats with their butts.

    We apologize for developing farms in our own lands which you have never
    been able to do, and that to this day feed most of your race still
    living in Africa. We apologize for coming to Africa and building farms,
    from which you have now run us off of and have devastated beyond use,
    forcing us to continue feeding you.

    We apologize for creating the
    International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank (WB) and U.S.
    Government Foreign Aid Programs and hundreds of charities that funnel
    billions of our tax dollars and charitable donations to nations around
    the world run by your race, all because your race cannot take care of
    itself by itself anywhere you live.

    We apologize for giving you
    the right to vote so you could take over all our major cities and turn
    them into high-taxed, crime-ridden cess pools that no civilized human
    being can live in.

    We apologize for creating the term “reverend,”
    which your leaders use to give themselves credentials and which their
    actions have denigrated beyond repair, with the result that no decent
    person would call himself “reverend,” much less a Christian

    We
    apologize for trying to come up with an AIDS vaccine to stop the
    epidemic spread of AIDS in Africa, AIDS being a disease that you created
    and passed on to us after having sexual intercourse with monkeys and
    then with one of our idiotic race-mixers who then passed it on to the
    rest of the world.

    We apologize for providing you with warm,
    custom-made garments instead of the animal skins and leaves that you
    wore before we arrived. We apologize for providing you with shoes
    instead of leaving you barefooted as you were before we arrived in
    Africa.

    We apologize for teaching you how to clean yourselves and
    your homes, and how to sanitize the water you drink to keep you from
    getting even more dreadful diseases than the rest of your race gets that
    still lives in Africa. We apologize for teaching you to cook your
    foods, which keeps you from getting the hundreds of parasitic diseases
    that your race gets that still lives on your home continent of Africa.

    We apologize for providing you with solidly built, heated, and cooled
    homes with grass yards instead of the straw huts and dirt yards you were
    living in before we arrived, and in which most of your race is still
    living in in Africa.

    We apologize for inventing sports so that
    you can make millions of dollars and live like kings, then kill and rape
    people with impunity, as O.J. Heisman-Trophy-Winner Simpson and Mike
    Heavy-Weight-Champion-of-the-World Tyson have done, as well as many
    others among your race.

    We apologize for producing such beautiful
    people for you to race-mix with, and if they won’t voluntarily mix, you
    often casually rape them as if you were eating a piece of fried
    chicken.

    We apologize for building thousands of prisons around
    the nation to house dangerous criminals, of which your race makes up
    over sixty percent even though you’re only thirteen percent of the U.S.
    population, and this at an expense of billions of dollars and manpower
    every year.

    We apologize for taking precious metals from the
    earth on your home continent of Africa, metals which you neither knew
    were there nor how to use them if you had known they were there, but
    which you love to puncture and cover your bodies with in the most tawdry
    way imaginable.

    We apologize for those among us who have
    established charitable organizations, donated billions of dollars and
    hours of time, and have devoted their entire lives to make life easier
    and better for your race, although most often to no positive result.

    We apologize for all the stupid White ministers whom your race has
    martyred in Africa where they were trying to evangelize you to a faith
    that you can’t understand nor do you want to; yet when you claim to join
    it soon pervert it with the Voodooistic concepts you have inherited
    from your forefathers.

    We apologize for building highways and
    railroads and for inventing flying machines that you could never have
    invented but which you use everyday to move about, yet without thinking
    or appreciating their origins in the least.

    We apologize for
    paying the majority of both federal and state taxes, to maintain the
    governments which protect and promote you but fight against our own
    people at every turn.
    We apologize for some members of our race who
    worship the monstrosities your genes have created, such as Jacko the
    Wacko and Little Fruity Richard and Dennis Nutman Rodman and Don
    Electrified King and Daryl Coke-Head Strawberry and Whitney
    Whacked-Out-Screaming Houston and Cassius
    If-Only-I-Be-White-But-I’m-Really-Black Clay and Tiger Adamic-Hater
    Woods and Whoopi Thinks-She’s-White Goldberg and Oprah Interview-a-Nut
    New-Age-Goof Winfrey and Ru Triple-Freak Paul and Morgan
    Act-White-But-Hate-White Freeman and Sammy
    Convert-To-The-Christ-haters-Religion Davis and Colin
    Have-A-Black-Pet-In-The-White-House Powell, to name only a few.

    We apologize for defeating the major part of the communist threat which
    cost us several trillion dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives, but
    whose doctrines you still wish to have implemented on the backs of our
    race to further torture us and tear us down.

    We apologize for
    spending over $2 trillion dollars on welfare and food stamps in the last
    thirty-five years, funds which your race received the majority of,
    although you are a small minority among us.

    We apologize for
    introducing you to the rule of law under a republican form of
    government, a government that has gone abroad to keep your own warring
    nations from slaughtering other members of your race by the hundreds of
    thousands as they did year in and year out before we arrived, and still
    do every time we leave them alone and do not intervene.

    We
    apologize for teaching you to read a language that contains more than a
    few words and a couple of hand signs, which has allowed you to take part
    in our philosophies, our culture, our art, our industry, our collegial
    nature, and our freedom, even though as soon as you get around them you
    pervert them.

    For surely, if you could not read, how could you
    have learned the teachings of Karl Marx, Mao Tse Sung, Joseph Stalin,
    Leon Trotsky, Nikolai Lenin, Howard Zinn, the Damocrat Party, the
    Neo-cons in the Republicoward Party, and others who hate our race, and
    have brainwashed you into believing our race is evil and that you are
    severely oppressed?

    We apologize for placing you under the form
    of government that our own forefathers died to create, and for which you
    are helping to destroy, instead of leaving you under the anarchy you
    lived under before we arrived.

    For all these wrongs we’ve carried
    out against you, we apologize deeply and unreservedly, and if you will
    please accept our apology, we shall happily and immediately take back
    all of the above mentioned evils we have cast upon you and return you to
    your home continent, if you so desire.

    We would with the
    greatest of glee and cheer even provide you with a nice, little stipend
    for traveling money, if you’d go and take your race-traitor wives and
    husbands and Mulatto children with you.

    We have enjoyed having
    you here, but because you claim we’ve been, and are still being, so mean
    to you, we’d like to atone by helping you get back to where you came
    from.

    You could live in peace without our persecuting you
    anymore, and we could save ourselves trillions of dollars over the next
    few years by shrinking our governments and emptying our prisons. We
    could take hundreds of thousands of security guards and police officers
    around the country off their jobs and put them to more productive use,
    and we could celebrate our own culture without offending you anymore.

    The race traitors of our race who hate their own culture and heritage
    could go with you, and we won’t offend them anymore either. For after a
    few generations of mixing with your race they would disappear into the
    dark tar-mix which your dominant design-genes make up.

    • You don’t like blacks like West because he holds up a standard that enables people to compare, to know for a fact that the reason a certain faction of blacks is not doing anything with themselves is because they do not want to.

      • I don’t like west because he exploits the troubles in the black community to prosper! He doesn’t care what goes in in that community…just as long as he can make money from it

      • While I do believe the source of this article is inherently racist, I would proffer that it is Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton who exploit the troubles in the black community to prosper. And it has not worked. I believe strong successful black men like West and Carson are needed in this country. The victim mentality of Sharpton and Jackson is worn out and falling on deaf ears now. Responsibility and accountability will truly change things.

  23. Alan, I wanted to share, but could not fact check the article. Mike Smith can not be found anywhere and frankly sounds like a fake name marginally more innocuous than “John Doe”. The source “American Renaissance” is a web blog of a blatant racist spouting uniform condemnation and inferiority on blacks and moral/genetic superiority on whites in article after article, each with some author that is untraceable to an actual human being that has done anything but that one article. Lets hold the standard of journalistic excellence to ourselves as well as our news sources… Regretfully I cannot share his because I cannot verify that it is true..

    • I don’t see it on the mobile site but I’m about 90% sure the full site said “Michael Smith ” is a pseudonym. In any event, the fact that he withholds the name of the community shows he doesn’t want to be identified.

      I wish an criminal attorney in a big city would go on the record saying whether his own experience is the same or not. But I’m afraid it would be a career ending move for anyone who says it’s plausible.

    • in the original article posted at the American Renaissance the page says that “Michael Smith is a pen name”. I believe that what he wrote is true and the experience of other public defenders in a similar environment, but I agree; because I cannot confirm that the author is an actual Public Defender who we can all see, I dont want to share the article.

    • My wife taught 4th grade in inner city San Bernardino, CA for several years. The teachers had to leave the school every day before sunset due to the gunfire in the neighborhood. Every year, at least two of her students were effectively orphans as they had at least one or both parents in prison for life, for committing murder. A lot of what “Mr. Smith” was identifying is the poverty mindset. Poverty, by the way, can refer to both physical and spiritual poverty. Both can be crippling and limiting. Add in allegedly well-intentioned actions that defined down deviancy and broke up poor families, and you have the kind of feral mess the author described.

  24. How does Allen West lift up the black community or try to help it? How does he use his position to inspire black youth?? He doesn’t…99% of his articles about the black community are negative and are not targeted towards black people…..his articles are targeted towards WHITE people so they can feel good about the hate and fear that is already in them!
    Millions upon millions of black people get up every day and work hard…just like WHITE PEOPLE….to listen to ALLEN WEST you’d believe we are all convicts, welfare queens and THUGS!!
    SHAME ON YOU ALLEN WEST!!!

    • each time I see you say something all I can think is wow what a racist. The intelligent person is well aware that West is not talking about all black people. The fear people have about young blacks is instilled by young blacks. YOU are part of the problem and people like YOU will keep the section of the black community that needs help the most right where they are by excusing everything and blaming whitey….good for you, your making groups like the KKK and arian nation very happy.

      • And how is he helping by talking to WHITE PEOPLE? When did he go to talk to a black origination or black youth??

      • How is your great leaders in the democrat party helping anything by the continued “victim” mentality? I guess now it will take the white people to really help with the problems. Maybe once more white people know the game being played on the black community by the democrats change will come. Maybe if more white corrupt media listen and report of the real problems instead of making every black person a “victim” real change will come. Ya, talking to white people just might do the trick for once! Quit being so dammmned racist!!

      • Allen can use himself to encourage and inspire….he refuse to….instead he wants to point out everything thats wrong but YET doesn’t nothing to encourage

    • So, you are saying, because Allen West is a black man he cannot critique what is going on in the black community? He has to stay in line with all the others and never speak bad upon the black community no matter what he knows? Is this how it goes? Totalitarianism?
      He does speak up for ALL people who act civilized, go to work and don’t live off of the government. Clearly he knows the black community can do better than what they have shown. Clearly he knows not all blacks cry racism every time something doesn’t go their way. Is it so bad to be a successful black man and point out what is going wrong in the black communities? Such as abortions, crime, joblessness, filthy neighborhoods, infested with drugs and gangs. Why do you continually want to pretend this isn’t going on?

      • He can critique all he wants BUT…the black people on his blog knows exactly what he is doing! Now he is going to white supremacist sites to get his articles….WOW is all i can say

      • What is he doing? He wants better for these communities and glossing over the fact and keeping his mouth shut about how these communities have real troubles won’t do a thing to make them better. You have to point out the problem and acknowledge there is a problem before you can fix a problem.

      • How does he help those communities by talking to white people exclusively? You know just like I know that the only people that read his stuff are WHITE PEOPLE…how bout he go to the black community and speak?

      • Allen West does talk to the black community. He gives many speeches and there are plenty of black people listening. Like you. Why does the black community, and you are an example, get all pizzed off when he tries to talk about it? Why do you refuse to listen? Are you that racist or are you that embarrassed to admit the truth of what he is saying?

      • Please provide me with ANY EVIDENCE of allen west going to the black community. I will do some research myself and see if I can find any

      • Who cares where he goes? He’s a success. He’s an example for others to follow. A gang banger, convict, etc can go “back to the community”, but that doesn’t make him a good role model or any sort of help to anybody’s community. Whereas Allen West is a good example for anyone to follow, not just those in the black community. Or is that why you don’t like him?

      • So me being a dad and going to work everyday and taking care of my responsibilities is not an example?
        How is he a roll model for black people when black people DON’T KNOW WHO HE IS?!?!? He never talks to the black community….always AGAINST the black community. And please….maybe I missed it…but please show me some articles or anything he has said to LIFT and ENCOURAGE the black community

      • Ok….did a search and found NOTHING showing allen west going into the black community! Everything listed was allen west putting down the black community….its called EXPLOITATION

      • YOu are a stubborn lost cause, you play victim, all whites are racist, Allen West is only using you and Obama is making everything better. Go drown yourself in that lie and continue to be the angry black man that you are.

      • He can critique all he wants BUT…the black people on his blog knows exactly what he is doing! Now he is going to white supremacist sites to get his articles….WOW is all i can say

    • Why can’t you take some of the simple basic truths that West has stated? He is trying to help. You can only help if you except the truth. He didn’t say all blacks. There is a Huge Problem in the Black Community. Do you want to fix it with facts or do you want to blame others and have the problems continue? It sickens me to see these people live in such hurt and lawlessness. The truth is the beginning of change. At least he addresses the issues.

      • How is allen west trying to help the black community by exclusively talking to the WHITE community? Please explain this one to me

      • By letting more people become aware of the problems! White people aren’t in these neighborhoods, they have no idea how bad they really are and the black community wants to hide the fact of how bad they are. Speaking up to EVERYONE about it is what will bring change. Blacks aren’t prohibited from coming to Allen’s site. Why do you hate the idea of white people knowing of the problems? Are you really that racist?

      • Blacks aren’t prohibited from coming to allen’s site and allen isn’t prohibited from going to the community. Allen knows who he audience is and who he is talking to

      • Why are you so afraid to admit to the truths Allen West is pointing out? Why are you so afraid to have to lie and pretend the black community is doing just fine? Why do you want to shoot the messenger, does it really matter what audience is listening as long as people are talking about what can be done to help? So now, only black people can listen to Allen’s message? That is extremely racist of you.

      • But who is he telling these points to…people that already have a negative view of the black community….how does that help?
        But…with allen it should be expected….he complains about OBAMA but instead of him running for office…he takes a job at a think tank!

      • “People that already have a negative view of the black coummunity” That comment only proves to me you are embarrassed to admit the problems in the black community. Like an alcoholic that can only talk to other alcoholics because they are embarrassed and think nobody else understands.

      • Pointing out problems with crime, abortion, filthy neighborhoods, gangs etc. is only pointing out truth and truth is positive in the long run. Try accepting it for once in your life.

      • its called EXPLOITATION!! Getting white folks all afraid and hateful…thats all Allen west does….he does it with Muslims, Hispanics and Black people

      • Wow, what do you call it when a Black man kills another Black man for no good reason? Is that worse or better than this so called exploitation?

      • The only one promoting HATE is you. That’s all I see out of all your post’s, You HATE Allen West so much that you will continue to look the fool. So sad too. What exactly did Allen do to you to engulf such hate in your soul??

      • Mr. West is talking to People interested in picking themselves up and dusting themselves off and showing some class by improving, not regressing . I happen to like Mr. West’s ideals and his history and I do not like Mr. Sharption’s ideas nor his history. It’s not a color thing, it’s a class thing

      • He`s talking to you too, you`re here reading this, you just choose to stay ignorant, thats not his fault.

      • WOW. What a RACIST you are.
        By YOUR logic, only whites should talk to whites and only blacks to blacks.

        That’s called SEGREGATION, you MORON.
        YOU BIGOT.
        YOU LEFTIST.

      • Please tell me you are not this stupid! So if you have a tooth problem you should go to a foot doctor? How in the world is the man going to make a change in the black community by talking to those that are NOT in the black community

      • If 1 white person learns something and uses that info to help someone in the Black Community, then its helping. Alen West informs people. Uncle Ruckus your angry. Never put down or challenge someone who is helping. Spreading info is helping. This form is helping by informing….

      • Okay, Uncle Ruckus! Since you put down everyone who is trying to help and understand these issues in the Ghetto. I guess YOU fix the problems! Blame The White Man…. Right and keep going in a circle with Blaming others. Great Solution. The only thing you have done here is Anger people more. Feeling very Frustrated….:(

      • ANd you are going to help HOW?? Allen posting to a bunch of white followers helps how? Allen is not serious…just want to exploit

    • Allen West stands for America and decent society which includes all people’s who respect our selves, parents, family, community , staying straight, always learning to improve and not allowing ourselves or loved ones to become parasites. Yes, we all have something good to contribute but some people choose to be vermin because it’s acceptable to other vermin and their apologists

      • Allen west stands for ALLEN WEST and ALLEN WEST’S pockets. Don’t be fooled! If he stood for ANYTHING he would run for president…but he has already said he is too afraid

      • So if someone doesn’t run for president that means they don’t stand for anything? You are a real piece of work, guess you don’t stand for anything either.

      • If someone wants to make a change and is in a position to make the change they seek…they RUN for office! I applaud people like Ben Carson (if he runs) or any other politician that will PUT UP! Allen is completely different…just post to a blog and get paid….thats all he is about!!!
        Lets think about it…he can make a better change from a THINK TANK or the WHITE HOUSE?!?!? I report…you decide!

      • Your HATE is strong….maybe you should think about all the anger, hate and racism that has built up in you. I suspect you are listening to too many on the left who have just as much anger, hate and racism. You need a vacation away from all that manipulation, it’s killing you.

      • Your fire is fueled on the left and you bring that fire to the right because dammmmit, you’ll show them!! You prove it all the time. Yes, you are hate and racist filled. Read back some of your comments.

      • SO I told you that i read and listen to more on the RIGHT so how is my fire fueled by the LEFT?? I don’t look at things RIGHT vs LEFT….I look at it RIGHT vs WRONG

      • Hey, they are your comments and you continue with this crazy rhetoric every time you come here. It’s not hard to figure you out.

      • I believe Mr. West knows he is admired by many but running for President after the Obama fiasco is a no win situation, it’s like having the wind knocked out of his sails . I feel the pain but I admire his determination to open the dialog door and to stop with the pussyfooting around with polite vomit. Life is tough and so people should buckle up and get busy fixing themselves first and foremost and stop blaming others for their own dirty laundry

      • OH…that means NO other black person can run for president? Get outta here with that! Allen knows that he is all about TALK and no action. He also knows that I have a better chance of turning white and listening to jim nabors albums than him ever becoming president

    • Uncle Ruckus! What a terrible thing to waste. A mind that can string together an articulate sentence. Only to belittle anyone that is not of your belief. Facts are facts. No body in their right mind thinks all blacks or any minority, is all a faceless mass of malcontents. 99% of all blacks I work with or have worked with over the last 40 years are hardworking decent people. The ones who get the attention of the media for their own gains are the malcontents. Al Sharpton and those parasites like him, they don’t give a dam about you. Just what you could bring them. I don’t believe in most of the white politicians either. No matter the party, politicians are by nature a group of thieves, and bought and sold souls. My problem and yours are very similar. If we stopped watching and listing to the politicians and carnival barkers. You and I could keep building a better country for our kids and families. All this listing to these hacks is doing is dividing Americans, not classes of people. Americans. I’m classified as a Native American Indian. But that classification does not bring my family any closer to what we want to achieve. I’m an American, plain and simple. I have no desire to go any where else. So I’ll make the best of it here. I guarantee it will not be listing to the parasites.

    • Your wrong about white people. NO one wants to see anyone hurt. People want change. Who wants to see another suffer? No one. It seems that you simply make excuse after excuse. Why can’t you admit to the problems in the Black Community? It effects everyone…EVERYONE! Denial does nothing but get the problems going..White people have every right in the world to be angry..You think its easy being white? Wow…your so lost!!!!

  25. I see a lot of people trying to excuse this behavior by certain factions of the black community as being something to sympathize with because of the way they were raised or that they were poor or that’s all they know. Let me tell you people something. I grew up in what you could call the worst possible conditions for an American child to grow up. Dirt poor, a mother who was devoid of any kind of love, a step father who was a drunk and had a thing for little girls, the level of violence I experienced on a weekly basis was horrid I actually became immune to watching my mother get the crap kicked out of her by the time I was 11. And yes for awhile I used that as an excuse to run away a lot, do drugs, deal drugs, and a whole ton of other things I’m not proud of. But guess what, that didn’t last long. We all get to a point where we make a choice, where we can no longer blindly blame others for the stupid things we are doing and you either make the right choice or you don’t and only YOU are responsible for that. At a young age we know right from wrong and be damned sure by the time a person is18 they know if they are doing something that’s right or wrong. If you make the wrong choice it is no one’s responsibility but your own. It is NOT the fault of some white guy sitting on his couch watching tv. We do not help a person by enabling them with excuses we only make the problem worse, we do them a disservice, we hurt them more. Politicians enabling this, promoting this, encouraging this are not the friend of the black community, they are the enemy sucking the black community dry for votes. Of course people like Obama, Holder and Sharpton don’t want to address the truth, of course they don’t want to stand up and say..”Hey pull yourselves together, use what the system has given you to help yourselves, go to school, don’t stop trying to find work, go the damn library if you think your school sucks or use the internet, like everyone else”…..They aren’t going to say those things because a successful black is not a sure bet for votes, an independent thinking black is a danger to the Democrat party. It doesn’t matter what color you are each day when you step outside you and only you choose your path.

    • If EXCATLY THE SAME WORDS had been written by blacks or hispanics,
      YOU’D BE CROWING ABOUT THEIR PRIDE…
      …but since they’re white they’re RAAAAAAAAAACIST?!?

      How Leftist of you.
      FAIL!

    • It’s not white supremacist. Even the SPLC classifies it as “white nationalist.” Putting it in the same category as say, stormfront or Aryan Nation is disingenuous. It certainly is controversial and espouses viewpoints deemed forbidden in the current culture, but it’s a far cry from the KKK. From the link you posted:

      “What we call race realism is what was considered common sense until perhaps the 1950s. It is a body of views that was so taken for granted it had no name, but it can be summarized as follows: That race is an important aspect of individual and group identity, that different races build different societies that reflect their natures, and that it is entirely normal for whites (or for people of any other race) to want to be the majority race in their own homeland. If whites permit themselves to become a minority population, they will lose their civilization, their heritage, and even their existence as a distinct people.”

      Not exactly Nazis.

    • The headline to this article, because apparently you missed it. “Quite Possibly The Most Racist Article You Will Ever Read”. He acknowledges that it is and then proceeds to discuss it. This is called a discussion..d i s c u s s i o n. get it? Try to wrap your head around it a little I’ll give you time.

    • You, sir, are an IDIOT.
      You, sir, are a LEFTIST.

      But I repeat myself.

      Throwing up smears does NOT constitute a debate…
      …except on Leftist websites.

  26. Rafael and Uncle Rufus..no matter how much you deny it, truth is truth, each day when we walk out our door we have a choice of which path to take, you can no longer blame the white guy sitting on his sofa 4 states away for the facts like 93% of black crime is black on black crime. Those days are over. Time to put up or shut up.

    Why is this allowed to happen? And why are hate crimes only used against whites?

    Other foolish nonsense.

    Here are some more shocking statistics: More
    than 1,600 Whites are murdered by Blacks each year. Blacks murder Whites
    at 18 times the rate Whites murder Blacks.

    About 1 million
    Whites were murdered, robbed, assaulted, or raped by Blacks in 1992. In
    the last 30 years, 170 million violent and nonviolent crimes were
    committed by Blacks against Whites in the U.S. Blacks under 18 are more
    than 12 times more likely to be arrested for murder than Whites the same
    age.

    Some 90% of the victims of race crimes are Whites. Blacks
    commit 7.5 times more violent interracial crimes than Whites, although
    they comprise only one-seventh of the White population.

    On a
    per-capita basis, blacks commit 50 times more violent crimes than
    Whites. Some 27 million nonviolent crimes were committed in the U.S. in
    1992 alone. 31% of the robberies involved Black offenders and White
    victims; only 2% involved White offenders and Black victims.

    1.3
    million of the 6.6 million violent crimes committed in the U.S. each
    year are interracial. Between 1964 and 1994, more than 45,000 people
    were killed in interracial murders in the U.S., compared to 58,000
    Americans killed in Vietnam and 38,000 killed in Korea.

    The
    above stats were collected by an Australian reporter, Neil Sheehan, who
    dug out half-concealed U.S. crime figures for an article in the Sydney
    Morning Herald (May 2, 1995). The contents of his article, he commented,
    could not possibly be published or discussed in the U.S. mainstream
    media.

    could not possibly be published or discussed in the U.S. mainstream
    media.

  29. While most violent crime is indeed intrarracial, 26.7 percent of homicides where the victim is a stranger are interracial. And in 2008, the offending rate for blacks (24.7 offenders per 100,000) was seven times higher than the rate for whites (3.4 offenders per 100,000), according to the latest figures from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS).

    Accounting for population differences, whites are simply far more likely to be victims
    of interracial crime than blacks. That, of course, didn’t stop Jesse Jackson from telling the Los Angeles Times at the height of the Zimmerman frenzy that “targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business.”

    The data, once again, suggest something quite different.

    In the mid-1990s, the Center for Equal Opportunity analyzed 55,512 felony cases filed in state courts for the 75 largest counties, representing 37 percent of the U.S.
    population. The weighted data, taken from the BJS, revealed that juries actually acquit blacks at a higher rate than whites for 12 of the 14 types of crime studied — including murder, rape, robbery and assault. The only category that had a higher conviction rate for African-Americans was felony traffic offenses.

    • Convictions rates are higher because the targeting of black people his higher by law enforcement. Since you love counting look at the stats on stop and frisk. No one knows who are the offenders when the crime is unsolved.

      • She said conviction rates are lower for blacks and black were aquitted more often than whites.

        This breaks the entire narrative.

      • I know there is a problem in the black community and that the black community has to fix it. They are the only ones that can fix it.
        My problem is that ALLEN WEST exploits the issues in the black community to create hate and fear…the same thing he does with muslims

      • HOw is he creating hate and fear? Simply bringing up the problems creates hate and fear now? Wow…….I have heard it all….keep stretching.

      • bringing up problems that are already known…I hear the stats almost daily on fox news. SO….what are ALLEN’s solutions??

      • LOL, I don’t watch Fox News but I highly doubt they spend their days talking about this. You are simply just full of sheit….keep mucking your way out, it’s getting deeper.

      • So, what are you doing about fixing the problems? Spending your days trolling Allen’s site certainly isn’t helping anything.

      • I’m inclined to agree with you. You need to look out for your own and we need to look out for our own. I can’t stand people like Tim Wise for the same reason.

      • That I didn’t say….I said the problems in the black community can only be fixed by those IN the black community! When they stand up and FIGHT the negative…then things will change. People like allen west and others can use their own stories to inspire those to stand up and FIGHT!! Sadly, allen choses to EXPLOIT!

      • The best way to fight the negative is to show positive. That’s why MLK was successful. When your public voice is Al Sharpton and all we white people hear is that all the dysfunction is our fault you can’t be surprised if people react negatively.

  30. Notice the articles that gets the most comments on this blog are those that deal with blacks, muslims or hispanics……EXPLOITATION at its best!!

  31. Not you, Mr. West, but the author, “Mr. Smith,” is an apologist for Leftist Tyranny, even after all his experiences.

    When he writes,

    “I believe that those of us who are able to produce abundance have a moral duty to provide basic food, shelter, and medical care for those who cannot care for themselves. I believe we have this duty even to those who can care for themselves but don’t. This world view requires compassion and a willingness to act on it,”

    ALL HE’S SAYING is that HE BELIEVES IN THE FORCE TO COMPEL, which is only possible through Government…as opposed to persuading to voluntarily give.

    HE WANTS THEFT: mandatory taxation to FURTHER ENABLE the savage behavior
    which he witnessed year after year, yet is TOO BLIND to recognize.

    HE DOES NOT BELIEVE IN voluntary charity or free will.

    HE IS FORCING all Americans to further enable the savage bahavior of these blacks.

    Until LEFTIST “USEFUL IDIOTS” like him rid themselves of this oppressive contradiction, I have NO SYMPATHY for them and only hope they will someday recogniuze the errors of their Statist ways.

    • YEs…he fatten his POCKETS! I would have more respect for the man if he were running for office to make a REAL CHANGE instead of complaining about everything!

      • Why are you so jealous that Col West makes money? Why don’t you go and write a book or two and try to do the same, or just go back to work? Maybe you won’t be so bitter then.

      • I could care less how he makes his money….unless he makes his money by EXPLOITING the black community…then I have a problem

      • I don’t listen to al nor jessie….thanks! Why do white people that AL and JESSIE speak for all black people????

      • I don’t, in fact I wish they would go away and live comfortably on all the money that the “Black community” has so kindly donated to them. But I don’t see you criticizing them, just Allen West…. If what you are saying is truly how you feel about Allen West, where is the condemnation for these race baiting opportunists that you “don’t listen to”? If what you say is true about Allen West, then he is no different from them in your eyes. Except they are, aren’t they.

      • Irrelevant. But actually no one person does, nor do any attempt claim they do. Unlike good ole’ Al and Jesse. Made themselves quite wealthy doing it too.

      • SO if no one speaks for white people…why do you insist on believing the myth of al and jessie speaking for black people.
        No one speaks for me…I am my OWN man and make my own decisions!

      • Because they claim they do and you have yet to criticize them for it. And you hate Allen West for saying that until the Black Community acknowledges these problems, it will never over come them. The first step is to realize there is a problem, a step that has yet to be taken.

      • Hahahaha, They really don’t speak for all, I’ve sen enough Black people telling there where to get off, and maybe they might be finally getting the message. But they’re still in there trying to be relevant and they did get rich off your people and a bunch of simpering white liberals. But it doesn’t seem to have sunk in for them yet. And still you have No condemnation of their profiteering from their race baiting ways.

      • White people don’t have a single source that speaks for them, as far as I know. I’ll say this, though, somewhat out of context: White people don’t cover for other white people’s bad behavior. That’s why so many white people make fun of the Walmart crowd, lol. No, but seriously, white people don’t put up with, or close ranks around, white people who are “trash”, but for some reason, black people will excuse any kind of behavior if it’s another black person doing it. There are so many intelligent black spokespeople out there who COULD be speaking on behalf of the black community, if that’s even necessary, but for some reason folks turn to Sharpton, and black folks seem to be okay with that. I don’t hear or hear otherwise.

      • SO why do u feel that black people NEED someone to speak for them….NO ONE speaks for me…I SPEAK FOR ME AND ME ONLY!!!

      • I wrote: “There are so many intelligent black spokespeople out there who COULD be speaking on behalf of the black community, IF THAT’S EVEN NECESSARY, but for some reason folks turn to Sharpton, and black folks seem to be okay with that.”

        I wrote that in my reply for a reason. I don’t think it’s necessary for black people to have someone speaking for them, but apparently mine is a minority opinion, so to speak.

        I don’t lump all black people together, but black people seem to want to lump themselves all together. Those who speak out about certain segments of the black population problems are vilified and called racist names. As are those who speak for themselves. Or those who point out black people behaving badly. Or those who espouse “traditional” values of marriage, education, and work ethic. Millions upon millions of black people lead productive fulfilling lives, contributing to society, and minding their own business, but they are not heard from because their voices are drowned out by those making excuses for black thugs and criminals.

      • Couldn’t care less. . . Not could care less .. unless you could care less in which case that makes no sense

      • He was a Congressman from Florida. He served one term and was voted out in the next election along with several other conservatives who won that same year. I blame Republicans for that.

        And he is doing well more than just complaining. Check out the Allen B West foundation.

      • I checked the stats on the GUARDIAN FUND and came to the conclusion that he is a FRAUD! He collected over 4 million dollars while only 60k went to conservative candidates while over 3 million spent on fundraising!

  32. A NOTE TO Mr. RUCKUS

    Your incessant whining needs to be addressed DIRECTLY.

    That you have a personal axe to grind with Mr. West is clear.
    SEEK MENTAL HELP FOR THIS.

    That you cannot, or will not, use reason to discuss the ideas is clear.

    LET ME PUT IT IN SIMPLE TERMS YOU MIGHT UNDERSTAND:

    You wish to discredit the ideas by pointing out the website they came from.
    Fair enough description? Okay.

    Now, with that form of “debate” or “thinking” (I cannot call it logic),
    you would ALSO repeatedly discredit the claim
    “the Earth is round”
    if Adolf Hitler said it.

    Yes, the method I used above is, in a sense, termed “going Godwin”, but the reasonong stands.

    So, debate the ideas or give it a rest.

    Oh yes, in any case: SEEK MENTAL HELP, Uncle.

  33. What can we do? Keep mentioning the facts, show people the numbers, and they still want to play the old tape.

    72% of Black children are born out of wedlock. At first, the mother is a teenager who continues to have more children and stops I dont know why or when. There is no Daddy in the house. Siblings have different Daddys.

    This has been going on since the 1970s in spite of all we have done to give poor Blacks a head start. We are seeing the result of it. There is no denying it. And this cannot be blamed on racism.

    Sometimes I take out the word “Black” and replace it with “Jew”.

    We have to help the Jews! The Jewish community is in trouble! Jewish children are inordinately being raised by teenage mothers! Jewish children don’t know their Daddy! Jews are 12% of the population but 40% of the prison population! Jews need affirmative action! #JewLIvesMatter! Help the Jews!

    Right about now I would be dying of embarassment.

  34. Just over 8000 white ppl are killed a year at a 72% population rate. Just under 8000 black ppl are killed a year at a rate of 12% of population. Less than .01 % is at the hand of a cop. The stats show that most of the killings of black ppl are killed by black ppl. Every activists want to focus on the media loving issues… not what the real problems are…it would be considered racist. Facts are not racist…ppl twist the facts to make them racist.

  35. The author of this article speaks in absolutes, as in “every” and “all”, just as many LEO’s say that “all” people steal, lie and cheat, which is never a good thing to do. Although inappropriate his generalizations are from his true life experiences as a public defender. I read his comments to be more as disdain for a subset of people that he is constantly inundated with in his line of work. I guess it is possible that he thinks “all blacks” are not well spoken and over react to paraphrase…. but doubtful.

  36. Allen knows the trolls like Uncle Ruckus way too well and points it out in this very article:

    “I’m quite sure the progressive socialist left will criticize me for sharing this article – that’s just who they are – they hate the truth. But if there is a war to be fought, it is for the soul of the inner city and the black community. The facts and observations in this are not shocking to me. They are quite well known, but the manner in which the writer so eloquently presents them is quite commendable.

    We cannot begin to “have a conversation about race” until we are willing to honestly address the facts.”

      • ARe you so thick headed you can’t understand the very last sentence?! Honestly addressing the facts is a start to a solution!!!

      • HE don’t want to have a converstion about RACE…I’m never seen a post of his that wanted to discuss RACE…they are always one sided! Sorry…the man only wants to EXPLOIT

      • Wrong! You are just stubborn with a hatred for Allen West that you cannot get yourself to see what he is doing to help.

        You admitted to watching Fox News and I know for a fact Allen post’s his interviews on Fox in which he has spoken many times on how to help the black community. Just because you reject him doesn’t mean he isn’t trying to help. I think your type are the problem and you are only hurting yourself with your attitude problem.

      • I’m wrong??? Please post the link of the article Allen west posted saying we should have a discussion about race….I’ll wait…thanks

      • Why, nothing Allen does will ever make any difference to you. He could part the seas and save every black child on the earth and you would still not see him for helping anyone.

      • Look at how the Democrats and Obama have decimated the blacks in this country and so many of them still worship him. They’ve invited 20 million illegals into this country to become citizens proving that they’re throwing the blacks under the bus.

      • Obama has expanded Welfare more than 100%, thus effectively keeping blacks “on the plantation,” rather than giving them school choices and training.

      • Like all socialists and Marxists, Obama has given them fish instead of teaching to fish. Eventually the fish will run out and they’ll be left holding O’s birth certificate.

      • So you are saying that the majority of black folks get welfare and vote republican?? NEWSFLASH dear…the majority of those on welfare DON’T VOTE

      • They don’t vote….PERIOD! They are not into things political….this is the why cities like ferguson are the way they are!

      • LOL!! Can you not read? I didn’t say that, you fool! You’re the one who shouldn’t vote, we’re in the mess we’re in because you and your lackey friends voted for Obama!

      • Sad to say a lot in the black communities don’t vote. Matter of fact many young white ppl don’t vote. If any of these groups do vote…they don’t know who they are voting for and what they stand for. How could they vote against inner city children getting a good education through vouchers and charter schools. Keeping the poor under their thumbs…making sure they are kept oppressed by the government and the crooks that run it.

      • While Obama’s kids get to go to their lavish school he is forbidding any inner city blacks to have the same opportunity…what a guy!

      • That is where u are wrong…..I would give allen all the props in the world …..but…I fear this will never going to happen. Allen makes too much money exploiting and not telling the truth
        I listened to Dr Ben Carson on one of the sunday shows about race and the police. He admitted there was a problem…..then offered solutions…I can respect that

      • Allen West provokes all kinds of fears in the liberals, that’s the reason for the attacks. Allen West is the first & only one that is or has been in office that has ever said “we have Communist in office” and after researching, I can confirm it, see commieblaster.com That is the reason the democrats brought out all the big guns when he was running for re-election and even committed voter fraud to make sure. They don’t like his honesty!!!

      • For allen west to provoke fear people would have to know WHO HE IS!! We already know this man can’t run for public office again…just like sarah palin

      • So what you’re saying is, if he doesn’t blame the white man he isn’t having a discussion about race. Is that what you’re saying?

      • You have very poor English. Example: He don’t want. The correct way: He does not want or doesn’t want. Example: I’m never seen. The correct way: I have never seen or

      • I would LOVE to talk about race.

        Tell ya what: let’s get 10 Progressive black personalities (including Obama) & 10 Conservative blacks together & have a serious discussion about race on C-SPAN (didn’t Obama mention C-SPAN before?).

        EVERYTHING will be on the table for discussion — all the way from black unemployment, America being a racist nation (belch!), the Welfare State, fatherless black families, etc., etc.

        It will never happen, ‘cuz the Progressives don’t want to talk about it. Obama, Jesse & Al would walk off the stage & their supporters would crash the event screaming about Michael Brown if it did occur.

      • Black people need to address these issues within their own race. Most do not. They stick their heads in the sand….way too busy blaming, pointing fingers, and making excuses. Signs are held up saying: ” Black Lives Matter ” when their actions show they don’t matter to themselves or to each other……oh, unless there is a white person to blame.

      • White people need to address Adam Lanza and the white culture of evil baby murdering thuggery. Don’t you agree that all must be addressed or none. I have much more, let’s dance.

      • Adam Lanza had an extreme form of mental illness. He would have never, never been able to live and survive on his own and you know it. He killed himself. If you want to bring up “here and there” cases to make your point. I understand. There are cases like these in all races. Blacks are only 13% of the population and of this percentage these issues are disproportionately high.

      • Hahahahaha Your assumptions are hilarious. But tell me when was the last time “someone from the right” assassinated a cop? You lefties have been going at of late, murdering two in New York and several other attempts around the country. Oh, I’m sorry… you’ll claim they weren’t Lefties, they were just kooks and common criminals doing what kooks and common criminals do.

        End of diversion.

      • There are extreme radical black groups out there as well that have agendas and do carry out unlawful acts….as well.

      • A black teen stupidly hits an unsuspecting passerby…ergo all black teens are violent.

        A white teen shoots up an elementary school…ergo we must all discuss:
        his possible mental health issues,
        and his parent’s divorce,
        and whether or not he was autistic,
        and his obsession with video games,
        and…
        and…
        .’cause when a white kid does it, it’s an “isolated incident” so they’re trying desperately to find some external factor to blame it on. It is easy to see how a Josh Powell can so easily flourish among the white community. It is easy to now see how some of the most depraved mass murders, child molestations and rapes are perpetrated by *white men.
        You are the debauched and debased brothers of the diseased Timmy McVeighs’, Jeffrey Dahmers’, and Jerry Sanduskys’ of this country.

        “How inexpressible is the meanness of being a hypocrite! How horrible is it to be a mischievous and malignant hypocrite.”~~Voltaire

      • As a collective group…. blacks are more violent which is a fact. There is no comparing it to any one thing or things. It is what it is.

      • Also as a collective group…….no crimes are more consistently perverse and evil as that of whites which is a fact. It is what it also is.

        “Authorities found the mutilated body of White thug Joshua Calkins wrapped in plastic, with his hand tied behind his back, and dumped in an alley April 16 by another white thug.”

      • That is just simply not true. ” All races” are capable and do carry out these kinds of vile crimes. Here lately, blacks are setting white women on fire in abandoned houses. Several women were found in an abandoned house burned to death and one was found inside a closet with the door nailed shut. Another was torched and found by the side of the road. I could give you many stories just like you can, as well, committed by blacks….. I already made my valid point. You choose to deny it. That’s your problem. You have no argument here at all.

  37. A couple of glaring grammatical mistakes cause me to wonder about the author of the article; “I have explanation for why this is,” and “The media invariably sugarcoat black behavior.” Is the writer really a lawyer? How much are we supposed to ignore to accept his presentation? If a roach crawls out of your bowl of spaghetti at a restaurant do you send back just the noodles the roach touched or the whole bowl? (5 points for whoever knows who said that.)

    • Probably some 35 year old short-order cook or burger flipper 5 credits short of his GED pretending to be a lawyer. We can’t even validate the guy’s identity let alone his so-called “experience”.

    • GLARING? Not so fast.
      To dismiss the writer rather than to address the content is disingenuous.

      As to your quoted errors:
      “I have explanation for why this is,”
      Probably a typo, missing the word NO
      “I have NO explanation for why this is,” totally fine.

      “The media invariably sugarcoat black behavior.”
      ‘media’ = plural for medium.
      Thus the phrase “Media sugarcoat”, though it may sound off to the uninformed, is correct.

  38. It is the responsibility of the Judge that the accused get a fair trial. Many of the attributes pointed to should not influence the Judge or the Jury. I would clean up before going to court, but that should not overshadow the “facts”.
    Sentencing has as much to do with applicable past criminal record as with the conviction of a current criminal offense.

  39. Allen West is a very intelligent man who has served our nation well while in the military in Iraq. This is one 79 year old man who would love to see him on a national ticket in 2016.

      • Obama has relieved more than 200 top military leaders. If we had voted in a cinder block for President, it would be an improvement over what we now have in the White House.

      • What you’re witnessing is a Marxist takeover of the US of A, whether you wish to accept that fact or not. The Kenyan in office is their point man for the moment Mr Ruckus.

      • I find you in denial, just like a Democrat. Just remember that the Republicans had the House after 2010 and won the Senate back in November. The people were sick of the Democrats and spoke volumes as the results have shown. Get over it and yourself.

      • I agree! The plan being implemented is UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21, the excuse is global warming/climate change but the real reason is to make America part of a Communist one world government to control everything, especially humans. See infiltratednation.com top of the page a utube “agenda 21 for dummies. Another site democratsagainstagenda21.com

    • Same here. Mr. West is MY #1 POTUS candidate for 2016. I really admire him. He makes me proud to be an American. I love how (so far) he is willing to call it exactly how he sees it.

      Granted, I don’t know exactly where he stands on most of the important issues of our day, but I TRUST him. Imagine how having him as Commander In Chief would motivate our troops.

  40. Liberals use blacks.

    Liberals are exploiting blacks to remain in power.

    Liberals are getting ready to discard blacks in favor of illegals that are becoming citizens.

    • Yeah, I was wondering how the flood of illegal immigrants into our country would help what is now a 13% black population.

      Wouldn’t this cause the black % to DECREASE? And if it does, how will that help black Americans politically? Could it be that American blacks may eventually become a minority within a minority, & who will gain political clout should that happen?

      • Blacks are being driven from their historical neighborhoods by Hispanics in record numbers and Obama and the liberal-Marxist Democrats are the ones doing it and yet blacks still blame conservatives…….what are we to do?

  41. Not only do I agree 100% with this column, but everything this attorney has stated has been proven with documented evidence and historical facts by Thomas Sowell and Walter E. Williams in their books on race and economics and education levels, etc. So the anthropology areas have proved certain races, peoples, excel more, are less prone to crime and sexual immorality than others and tend to want to be less of those things than blacks. It is not racist to point that out, as this attorney has and Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams do all the time. But if one wants their children to excel and not keep that pattern, the parents or single parent has to change and demand a better child from their child. Does that change racial tendencies? No, but one can improve with one thing that does make the difference: Raise your kids with Jesus and not a phony prayer belief that God will acquit a criminal, because God said Thou shall not steal, lie, murder, etc. So God may forgive, but He does not acquit from prison sentences one deserves

  42. How come someone who’s always railing against the left “moral relativism” can present a totally biased and unsubstantiated story as fact? Intellectually dishonest and lazy.

      • There are middle aged killers and violent women. It doesn’t change the fact that young males are more likely to commit a violent crime than any other demographic group.
        Actually young black males are more likely to commit a violent crime than any other demographic group.

      • It’s in Wikipedia. It must be true!
        Man are more likely to commit violent crimes than women. Is it a fact or a logical fallacy?

      • Wikipedia was just to get the proper verbiage. Anyone who took a night class at a community college in critical thinking knows this. It’s a logical fallacy. Can be proven one way but not the other. Can be induced but cannot be deducted. Can’t use it to prove who actually did the dirty deed.

      • No credible instructor will allow his/her students to use Wikipedia as a source. Too many people can edit it and not all of it has been verified.

      • Sorry Rena I like you but are not getting away with applying a higher standard of credibility to my references then you do the man who’s name is on this website.

      • I apply it to everyone. My point about wikipedia had nothing to do with what you quoted, but the website itself. I am sure what you quoted is credible, but to base all your “facts” or even assumptions on wekipedia is not a good choice… that was the point I was making about wiki…. nothing about what you said. Please look at what I wrote about wiki, it was not about your quote but where you got it from. Its best to use a more credible source, one that is recognized by more authoritative figures. Like I said, instructors in most schools, including high school, will not accept wiki as a source because it can be edited by anyone with no proof what so ever of its validity.

      • Links to wikipedia get an automatic “F” in almost every University in the country. It’s as much an opinion page as anything else, which means it is an unreliable source. Thanks for playing tho’.

      • And that “lawyer” is credible? It’s just a principle that my 14 year old understands perfectly. If 1 + 1 = 2 then 2 -1 = 1. Inductive and deductive proofs make a fact. The argument has to past the test both ways to be valid. I’m not trying to sound smart I learned that from white people.

      • Did I say he was credible? And what does learning something from a white person have to do with it… LOL I have learned a lot from Black instructors as much as I have from Whites… as a matter of fact sweetheart, when I was in college years ago struggling with algebra, it was a Nigerian man who helped me figure it out… I can care less about what race the person is as long as they are teaching me the right thing….

        Wikipedia is not a good source for information as it can be edited by anyone. I can go on there and write an article about the sky is really green, not blue and put up my reason why and it will be printed on there until someone comes along and edits it. Base your “facts” on credible sources to back up your claims or just don’t bother… it makes you look like quite the fool.

        Now as far as this “lawyer” goes…if you have proof he is not one, prove it… If he is you will look funny with egg on your face… and vice versa… The problem with you now is you have this racial chip on your shoulder you didnt have before.. what has changed in you to become so closed minded and bitter now? I can see this sort of hate coming from Earl, but you?

      • This coming from a man that claimed that a SOURCE was someone he sat next to on a plane that knew a guy…..not to be believed!

      • Your good at researching go ahead. See how many sources say the exact same thing. Critical thinking has been a discipline for year and any debate coach knows about them. Neither me or Wiki invented this. I’m just trying to think critically about the issues.

      • What he said…. nobody can make this stuff up. It is so true. Experiencing and witnessing speaks volumes. I know exactly where he is coming from.

      • It does not mean that these problems and issues don’t exist because they most certainly do. That makes you in denial. How sad. You are then biased to say that they don’t when they most certainly do.

      • Rafael shows up on every one of Col. West’s comment threads. The very best way to handle her is to flag and minimize her answers – every one of them! Eventually, they disappear and it’s all good 🙂

  43. “I am a liberal … I believe we have this duty even to those who can care for themselves but don’t. This world view requires compassion and a willingness to act on it.”

    Has it occurred to you that you are an enabler? Could your talents be put to better use by exploring means to better the situation rather than perpetuating it?

  44. War criminal Allen West is the very definition of an Uncle Tom. But it’s only a matter of time before his minstrel show and usefulness wears out. Then he will go the way of Herman Cain and have to get a real job.

  45. “I believe we have that same duty to those who can but don’t”. And that’s why this country is in the shitter. Because those blacks you speak of have come to expect that of you and other liberals like you, just like they do the monthly welfare check.

      • Respectable white people aren’t afraid to call out the low life whites living off the system, while blacks like you try desperately to hide the fact that a huge majority of blacks live off the system. Why is that?

      • Hmmm…this is why I see so many post from allen west about those WHITE folks getting welfare….GET OUTTA HERE WITH THAT!

      • If the problem with the black community is already “known” then why do you keep saying no one wants to talk about it, or people don’t understand? You keep going in circles about this but do nothing to help it…. West brings it up and you accuse him of not discussing it… or doing anything about it… what do you want? Him to spoon feed you?

      • It wasn’t until a Lib/Prog/Socialist buffoon injected it into the conversation. It’s call diversion and done to derail a thread when said Lib/Prog/Socialist knows he’s got nothing of value to ad to the conversation.

      • LOL….I see your desperation now. why wouldn’t anyone be outraged by something like this? You see, white people don’t stand behind good for nothing killers like you do. Do you see white people marching and rioting down the street on behalf of this psycho?? FAIL

      • You won’t hear a peep about those people from allen west. He wants his followers to believe that all black people are lazy and get government assistance!

      • Well its such an easy sell. But that is not true anyway he is pointing out the real race problem that we have here in America not the fakebone blacks and liberals have invented.

      • Racial breakdown of people on TANF in 2010:
        Whites 31.8%. Blacks 31.9%. Hispanics 30%.
        Whites are 72% of the population. Whites are UNDERREPRESENTED by factor of 2.5 among welfare recipients RELATIVE to their share of the population.
        Blacks are 12% of the population. Blacks are OVERREPRESENTED by factor of 2.5 among welfare recipients relative to their share of the population..

      • Blacks are overrepresented among welfare recipients relative to their share of the population,
        I assume you know what overrepresented means.
        They are also overrepresented among perpetrators of almost every crime imaginable, included but not limited to murder, rape, aggravated assault, armed robbery, fraud, and crimes against family and children.

      • Money is money , Jethro. If those lazy assed whites would get off their meth hazed butts and be like President Obama, a success.

      • Awe, did your panties get twisted? I may not be able to do anything about this joke in office, but I can do something about any others like him that try to get in office… using the power of the vote and informing others…

      • A republican will not win the white house for a while…they have a issue with minorities in this nation and you cannot win without them

      • I don’t agree. Many of the people (minorities) who voted for Obama have become upset that he didn’t follow through with his “promises”. I believe that we will have a republican President in the next election.. hell look at the political map and see how many states turned from blue to red.

      • Obama isn’t running next time UNLESS you believe what Dr Ben Carson said….he believes that OBAMA will cancel the 2016 elections because of the national debt! You can’t make this stuff up!

      • Its not impossible for him to do it… he does have a pen… and a phone by the way… at any rate… If you didnt notice, I did say I know he isn’t running again, and this nation does not want another 4 years of him and his administration … they made that clear at the mid terms….

      • Explain how they have an issue with minorities? First I heard of it outside of liberal talking points and we all know you are full of those.

      • Do some research man….MITT only got about 12% of the minority vote…you can’t WIN with that…after the election the GOP put out a report saying they need to try to appeal to the MINORITY voters…..the GOP ignored this report! The only person that has been talking about it is Rand Paul but he won’t run

      • This is not 2012, this is 2014 and people have had enough of Obama and his administration.. look at the mid-terms…

      • you can draw nothing from the mid terms….sorry and like I said OBAMA will not be on the ballot in 16 so whatever republican that gets the nomination (JEB BUSH) will have to have SOMETHING to run on….cause it seems the only thing republicans can do is RUN AGAINST something

      • Like I said … No one said he will be…. and no one wants Jeb either that I know of… Most folks I talk to want either Carson or Romney

      • Personally I don’t like Romney, he is too soft, but he has been on the mark in his predictions about ISIS and a few other things… As far as Carson, he is my choice, and many people like him but he may not make it either unfortunately… perhaps as VP to Cruz… Cruz is a good choice,,, don’t know much about anyone else.. but Jeb… ewww no way… he is nothing more than a RINO…

      • Carson…..doesn’t stand a chance…he made a statement where he believed that obama will cancel the 2016 elections cause of the national debt! That statement alone will ruin his chaces! Cruz??? The establishment GOP will destroy him….its JEB!!!

      • Thats your opinion and you are entitled to it, just as I have stated my opinion. I can only pray that Carson wins and hope that Americans see him as the best choice for this country… He made that statement, and so what? He is entitled to his opinion as well… its possible, its also possible that Obama might cancel it due to all the race issues we have going on right now as well…. I wouldn’t put anything past him doing that to stay in office to be honest…

      • You know just like I know that the establishment GOP big money will not get behind a carson or a west or a cruz! ITS JEB BABY!!!!

      • Well, you haven’t explained anything with that. YOu said republicans have an issue with minorities….what you posted only proves clueless minorities have an issue with republicans. This is why minorities are always down and out, they have been depending on the democrat party to save them for over 50 years and nothing has changed. I guess it’s the minorities that need to wake up!

      • LOL, until election time comes around then you will find out Rand Paul is against the civil rights act…the your head will blow a gasket.

      • He only got 12% of the vote because he was white. Had nothing to do with political affiliation. You morons proved that it didn’t even matter if he was a citizen. As long as he was black,you racists were going to vote for him! He could have been a black Nazi, and would still have gotten elected!

      • Oh and thank you for supporting my comment he is a joke 🙂 “That joke is your president, dumb ass. And there’s not a damn thing you can do about”

      • The sickest most destructive and abhorrent crimes are the specialty of white maniacal thugs. Why are White men so thuggish? They roll in violence. I wonder, maybe it is the way they’re raised. Clearly the family structure is lacking. Probably being raised in the ‘trailers’ with an absent father and a mother of ill repute are to blame? I think it’s the DNA.

      • You haven’t seen maniac thug until you have seen the nasty, vile, disgusting, pathetic, vulgar, demented, ratchet hood rats from the cement jungles. You have no valid argument against this what so ever. They take the cake, the chips, and all the dip. That is for sure….no doubt at all.

      • More typical white depravity and thuggery on display:

        580 shooter – Byron Williams, inspired by Glenn Beck to attack the Progressiv­e Tides Foundation (heard this one from my back porch)
        Las Vegas police shootings – white supremacist neo-nazi sovereign citizens Jerad and Amanda Miller
        Knoxville progressiv­e church shooter – Jim Adkisson
        Dr Tiller murder – Scott P. Roeder
        Pittsburgh police shooting – Richard Poplawski
        Wisconsin Sikh temple mass shooting – white supremacist Wade Michael Page
        On and on ’till whites fess up and address their diseased culture, please collectively KMA.

      • How’s this for a typical example of white debauchery and insanity. Only snakes can sink to this twisted level, but since your race is silent it must approve.
        http://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/mother-pleads-not-guilty-murdering-children
        “A crazy Massachusetts white woman who lived in a squalid home where police said they found the skeletal remains of three babies pleaded not guilty Monday to two counts of murder. Bradley said the dead fetus had the placenta and umbilical cord still attached; a 3-year-old could neither talk nor walk, was severely malnourished and had maggots in her ears; and a nearly 6-month-old appeared to have spent much of her young life on her back.”
        White society in America is sick.

      • “All races” are capable and do carry out these kinds of vile crimes of debauchery and insanity. Yes, even blacks. You use these “here and there” stories to off set the issues in the black communities and how blacks collectively are more violent as a whole. The black population is only 13% of the population and “of that percentage” ….the crime(any kind), murder, assaults, welfare, abortion, and babies born out of wed lock is disproportionately high. You can not make this up. It is fact.

      • Whites do recieve the majority of welfare, but only by a slim amount above blacks.

        Consider that the former outnumbers the latter almost 9:1.

      • Hey, Milo, the welfare roles are made up of about 34% white, 34% black, the rest hispanic, asian, etc. They teach us dumb rednecks how to look up stats, like on the governments own websites. But you’re right to an extent, as the white people on welfare are doing the same thing.

    • Mississippi gets back $2.12 for every $1.00 it contributes in taxes each year.
      Alaska gets back $1.98 for every $1.00 it contributes in taxes each year.
      Alabama gets back $1.89 for every $1.00 it contributes in taxes each year.

      The trailer trash grifter are the main reasons this economy is being held back. That and baby and wife killing murderers.

      • Notice how all the states that are net contributors have large urban areas, this means people make more money in those areas. The percentage of the population and the number of people who make $100,000 a year in CA far outnumber those who make that much in a state like TN. Blue states take in a greater amount, on average, of federal fund per capita than red states. Depending on the type of federal assistance, 63% to 81% welfare recipients are libtards, while 12% to 24% are republicans. 81% of people living in public housing are libtards.

      • Wrong as usual Dave. Red states take more federal dollars PER CAPITA than blue states. And you talk about it as if there is some coincidence at hand. The reason those blue states take less is because of liberal policies that work while red states keep trying the same failed junk that was debunked after the Reagan disaster. You really tie yourself into knots trying to explain away the obvious.

      • Oh ok, wonder boy.

        http://www.census.gov/prod/2010pubs/fas-09.pdf

        Go to page 10, its in roman numerals, so the 10 will look like an x; I didn’t think you would know that.

        Go to the bottom of the per capita spending by state list, do you notice any trend regarding the political affiliations of the states that get the least amount of federal spending per capita? Texas gets less than CA and a lot less than NY. Kansas, that terrible place that according to libtards is “on the brink of collapse;” has a 4.2% unemployment rate and gets little money from the federal government on a per capita basis.

      • You’ve listed states with huge minority populations. Don’t know what point you’re trying to make, but your stats pretty much uphold the observations of the writer of this article.

    • You want to see a bunch of Eric Garner protestors scatter? Holler out over the loudspeaker that EBT cards will no longer work after 8PM the night they are out in the streets & see what happens.

  46. Face facts….the black community is just going backwards. Obama has made sure jobs are few for the black community. MOre crime, more victimhood, more abortions. Now that he is granting amnesty to millions of illegals, the black community will just spiral further down with less jobs. Yet, some here are too stupid to recognize that fact and get upset that Allen is concerned over it. Talk about leftist whack jobs.

    • So OBAMA is the one that sent jobs overseas? Obama is the one that is forcing people to commit crimes? Has NOTHING to do with OBAMA skippy….just right wing loon blabber!

      • Why do we have a president? Right now thousands of jobs can be created for all with he Keystone Pipeline and he won’t agree to it! Obama is the one who has signed executive amnesty granting millions with welfare and jobs at the expense of American citizens. Obama and the democrats have put more and more restrictions on corporations creating jobs here that they go elsewhere to make a profit. It is known fact in times of economic depression more crimes are committed. Yes, It’s OBAMA’S FAULT!

      • Keystone pipeline is a JOKE! Since gas is about $1.80 per gallon….no need for it! Plus…it creates how many PERMANENT jobs?

      • January gas prices will be on the rise again….and how can drilling for our own oil be a joke? Oh that’s right, it’s your liberal talking points but you only listen to conservative news, lol, You are the joke! Got anything else Antoine?

      • Several thousand. All that oil that would be transported through that pipeline currently is being transported by rail with several nasty derailments and accidents that have claimed lives. Oh, and gas won’t be “1.80” for long. Just wait, it’ll be fun.

      • Running the pipe line will employ that and more, then there’s maintenance and supporting jobs, supply, added retail and food service maybe even some teachers in the local schools. Directly and indirectly, it will create far more jobs than a racist libtard like you will admit. You are blind because you refuse to look and therefor you will not see. And quite frankly, your racism, bigotry and lame-brained comments have gotten tiresome.

      • ONCE THE PIPELINE IS COMPLETE?? how many jobs? How will the pipeline help AMERICA when its Canadian oil being shipped overseas?

      • You see? Actually…You won’t see. and so you pop in with another lame-brained comment. Just can’t admit that you’re wrong.

      • I don’t recall CheetoBuster saying he sent jobs overseas, but thats what happens when you create a nanny state and people expect handouts. The people who want 15$/hour for fast food jobs etc are the ones who are now sitting on thier asses because they feel they are “worth” more than just 8$ an hour so what does Obama do? He allows millions of illegals into our country and gives them anything they want, including the 8$/hour jobs Americans wont do because they think its beneath them, so they end up with no jobs and sucking off the government.

        Jobs going overseas because who wants to pay employees 15/hour when they can pay 2$/hour and not be forced to pay insurance as well. You can thank Obama for that. Not to mention he did hire Canadians do make the health care website… why not Americans? Or what about his trades with China has cost apx 450k American jobs… do your research “skippy”, Obama is not innocent when it comes to outsourcing….

      • man…i wish u would do some research….do you know how many people WORK and still qualify for assistance?

      • Yes I do know, because the economy sucks… again thanks to Obama doing nothing to stop the skyrocketing living expenses….

      • Unemployment lower? Joke! …. its not lower, just people aren’t putting in claims.. People going on welfare and disability has risen… thats why unemployment claims have lowered.

      • You’re absolutely right, Rena. And those who DO get jobs, are only getting part-time jobs because employers can’t afford to hire full-time employees, due to what it will cost them for Obamacare. Basically, Obama has managed to screw up every facet of America in just 6 years. He had NOTHING to do with the lower gas prices and they are only going to be this low for a very short time. In the spring, they will go back up to where they were. It’s all about supply & demand.

      • Ahh there it is … an anti-Capitalist hack. Please do your best to forgive this old lady, but I really have had enough of your ignorance and racism, so if you speak to me again, I’ll just flag your post and close it without commenting.

      • I’m smart enough to know that the POTUS does determine what gas prices will be…its demand and speculation that drives the price

      • I make sure I blame Obama now because that’s all I ever heard from every democrat I knew….it’s Bush’s fault because he’s in with big oil…..guess Obama is too!

      • OH..let me get this right…when things are BAD its obamas fault but when things are getting better…they are not getting better?? Give me a BREAK! No matter what the man does or how good things become…you loons will never give him credit for it

      • NO matter how bad Obama has created things you loons think he’s doing a good job….funny how that works.

      • I can see that when he took office we were losing almost 600,000 jobs per month and after he took office 54 straight months of job growth

      • More liberal talking points, wow, you have a lot of them for someone who only primarily listens to Fox News. I guess Fox is more liberal than I ever imagined.

      • Economy better? LOL, more liberal talking points. Gas was $1.70 when Obama took office and now gas is going to go up again…prepare for it. Why is the black unemployment rate still so high??

      • Gas was $1.70 when Obama took office in 2008? Where do YOU live?? It was around $3.10 here in Ohio back then. Gas prices will continue to fluctuate, but thanks to Obama allowing more drilling here in the U.S., it’ll stay at around $2.00 per gallon until OPEC gets sick of $40/barrel oil. At which point, gas WILL go back up again, and there’s nothing any U.S. President can do about that. CheetoBuster, quit with the Fox crap, will ya?

      • It’s still close to $3 here in Oregon. And, WHAT “Fox crap”? Do you listen to Communist News Network or MessNBC???

      • Sorry, average cost of gas across the nation. Gas prices skyrocketed 96% after Obama took office, those are facts.

        I will never stop blaming Obama for gas prices the same way the democrats constantly blamed Bush for them. It is my way of getting my digs in on them. They didn’t want to hear about how a president doesn’t determine gas prices then, so I don’t want to hear if from them now! A little bit of Karma coming back their way, and I enjoy watching them fume over it.

        Oh and by the way, don’t have cable so no, I don’t watch Fox….get over your little Fox tirade, it’s getting old. Suck it up!

      • So, you’ll blame Obama for just about anything to “get revenge” on people who were unhappy with things in the last years of Bush’s 2nd term. (Never mind the fact that that included about 85% of the U.S. population, Republicans included!) Okay. I get where you’re coming from now, Cheeto..You’ll never stop blaming Obama even when “blame” flies in the face of facts. Whatever. Typical conservative. You have fun. I’m done with this now.

      • Obama will never give anyone reason NOT to blame him….He is the biggest failure this country has ever witnessed!! Sorry you can’t handle the Karma coming your way, but that’s a typical leftist for ya! Enjoy!!

      • What I find so incredible is that there are still people who defend him, though he has done absolutely NOTHING for the country except bankrupt it!

      • Thank obama for jobs going overseas?? Really…I believe that democrats AND republicans are responsible for that

  47. Here is a parallel article that explains why Islam appeals to blacks.
    Islam is the perfect religion to give justification for those who feel under attack and to maintain the eternal “victim” fantasy. Islam is also “higher” than Christianity because it comes last in co-opting the revelations of Sinai and the New Testament. What a perfect receptacle for projecting hatred. Islam incites, encourages and permits hatred of the Jew and Jihad. It’s perfect for a fragile personality that has the need to hate and the need to have an enemy. There are billions of people out there who share those sentiments and that profile. As an underdog religion, Islam provides great mass appeal, which even Eric Hoffer, the author of the True Believer, noted in 1951. It should come as no surprise that its numbers are growing. If one has a grievance, Islam will take care of it.
