american black culture grew out of poverty. poverty creates violence due to society. their culture is intrinsically tied to this. i admit that american black culture is inherently more violent, but because of its origins not because of their race.

I think race is irrelevant here

Shame on the person who started this! (and i've checked, i know who)

I think u two both have massive egos...as lovely as u are!

Amaqdrinker isn't saying only blacks are poor...he's saying poor (black and white) people commit the most crimes...

It's true

how about you find a statistic in any country in the world that shows crime rates broken down by social class and you'll see that a majority are committed by the poor. this is a social issue not a race issue.

i didn't see anyone blame this on slavery. i blame these individuals for this act, there is absolutely no justification. but when you start throwing out statistics and figures suggesting that blacks are inherently more violent i'm going to call your bullsh*t.

and if you read the stats in the link i posted you would see it's true, in 2005 the number of blacks that were convicted was 7 times more than whites.

im not, im saying that it isn't right that people say it's okay if blacks do those things because they see things differently or because they were slaves in the past.

and lonewolf i'm assuming based upon your responses that you still believe that blacks are inherently more violent, which is disgusting.

i was actually pissed off at what happened with michael vick. first of all i don't know why we hold professional athletes on such pedestals, and secondly we freaking crucified the guy. all i could think of was the hypocrisy in relation to the meat packing industry.

yeah but that's different, dogs have always been used as pets in america and cows as food, in india it's different, hell in china they eat dogs, but this is america not china or india, and how blacks see dogs is not the point, the law says that it is illegal for all people in america.

"Why should any animal be used as a weapon?"

they shouldn't be. i completely feel that what michael vick did is disgusting. but look at our meat packing industry, we choose which animals to respect and i was just saying that dogs don't have the same position in black culture. look at what we do to cows and look how they are viewed in hindu culture.

Areet- no they're not coz in some of those countries where it's commited it's not even a crime! And if we're gonna talk about women's rights far more women suffer from "regular" domestic abuse but that's not gonna get a mention is it? Most of the time u can't even spot it

Jar-head...Kareoke is THAT way>>> Don't quote songs...i hate people who can't think for themselves

"it's still a crime"

i'm not following your logic here, i'm not saying that these people are justified for committing these crimes because they are poor, i'm saying that blacks commit more crimes because they are poor not because they are black. these men are completely responsible for their actions. and the fact that poor people commit more crimes is a social occurrence that has always been true and it has a lot to do with how society views the poor.

Yes, but my point is, how much serious media coverage did you see being made about that? Do you think they're still looking or even thinking about those suspects?

that's cruelty...when they're too old they can't be re-homed as they're dangerous so they get put down...or more often left to die somewhere.

yeah racism works both ways...end of arguement i think!

Now how exactly do you suppose they account for all of the unreported homicides? Perhaps they flip coins, roll die?
