    Well blacks aren't exactly proportionately represented when it comes to crimes nor secondary education, so as far as society focusing on the negatives, it really just is what it is. Not acknowledging that isn't going to help anyone. Living on a big campus and it's easy to notice the under representation.

    As far as the "pant sagging", in Florida I think it was, some cities have made it illegal to have pant sagging...which is I think ridiculous on a number of levels. Hard to believe they had races other than African American in mind when they thought that up. Also hard to believe they'd enforce it on others, or not nearly to the same degree.

    Just wear no pants, not illegal. Hmm...pants are therefore illegal...my god. Must explain the girls on campus.

    Well, the OP is certainly an embarrassment to white people. (I promise we're not all as brainwashed and ignorant as ScruffLA) Go join the KKK, asshole.

    ok Joe, I guess someone can't address an obvious an obvious problem (in some circles) or tell the truth without being called a racist.

    maybe everything will just improve if we remain quiet about it

    The only obvious problem I see is the double standard of judging one race based on negatives and the other based on positives. Both races have their geniuses and their fuck ups.

    The OP is not one of the geniuses, btw.

    Well ..... that one I don't see. Poor black trash and poor white trash are coddled by government and that is costly to everyone.

    Me thinks scruffLA however is just plain old union trash.

    I strongly disagree with you on the saggy pant prohibitions. They are a good idea. It is time to apply some public pressure on some of these guys both black and white to start taking pride in how they appear in public. Oversized, baggy clothes and sagging pants are absolutely hideous and they make a person look like a bum or a complete lowlife. It is probably the way some of these inner city guys dress that cause them to remain in poverty because no employer is going to want to hire someone that dresses like he just crawled out of a trash can. I am very happy to see that saggy pant craze dying out and guys dressing up better.

    How about criticizing the blacks and whites in most older northern cities for being brainwashed into voting democratic in city elections for the past 50 to 60 years. Just looking at the demographics over the past 50 to 60 years clearly exposes the disastrous failure of democratic monopoly rule in city hall especially in troubled, bankrupt places like Detroit and Flint.

    Um, this is the words of Charles Barkley, not ScruffLA, if you didn't know, he is a famous black guy basketball player, your emotional reaction is exactly what Charles is referring to, why not bash Charles, the 'Uncle Tom'?, I was merely agreeing with him, thug and prison life includes gansta rap (ebonics) and saggy pants (dress code), if you want to include white trash, look to the Eminem and Ted Nugent crowd for inspiration icon_rolleyes.gif

    In sport as you should all know, attacking can become the best fallback for a lack defence (analogy adapted) so I take heated attacks as little more than venting and I feel that real change in society comes when people who face discrimination in society instead of taking the well worn siege mentality, actually stop and think thorough what's being said by one of their own who is a prominent high profile former Allstar (he was awesome at the Phoenix suns) and someone of no major character floor such as a 'huge rapsheet'. People always attack hardest when they know there opponent is correct and Charles as a former power forward hard man won't mind coping it on forums as it get people thinking. Get it insulters on RJ ur just brainless sheep with nothing to contribute

    Why are you posting it though? It really doesn't apply to your life. I think you're gloating because your racist beliefs are being supported.

    Charles Barkley is playing into the double standard I'm talking about. There are plenty of white people who have green mohawks and piercings that exclude them from gainful employment, yet white guys in suits are not being held back by them.

    You are way too liberal for your own good. You definitely need to get out of your ultra liberal fantasyland. Everything the OP is saying is factual and correct. You are wrong for playing the race card. The black community needs more people like Charles Barkley who say it exactly as it is and far fewer gangsta rappers and drug dealers. There is absolutely no double standard here only the truth and the truth hurts.

    ^I think it's absurd to tell other people how to dress. And it's even more absurd to think that a few people dressing a certain way would prevent others from being successful just because they are the same race. White people don't get discriminated against just because some of them don't dress the way you dictate they should.

    I could wear whatever I want and it's not going to hold back white people. The idea that you have to wear a uniform that's been okayed by the oppressive race in order to not hold back your people makes this country seem like it's stuck in the 1800s.

    It is not absurd it is trying to get these guys to take more pride in their appearance when out in public. There is no absurdity here only common sense. You think employers are going to hire someone regardless of their race who comes in dressed like they just crawled out of a trash can you are wrong. Don't give me that baseless bullshit about oppression and racism, that is a pile of crap. Walking around in ugly, oversized clothes with your pants sagging to a point of almost falling off your ass is disgusting and unacceptable. There is legitimate reason to push aside people like that because they don't want to better themselves and go through the required hoops to be successful in life. Like I said before and I am going to say it again, YOU ARE TOO LIBERAL FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.

    See how it feels? YOU get attacked for the content of the article / news story / quote that you posted here as if YOU were the one who said it.

    Happens to me all the time. Welcome to the club.


    Whoa! My horse stopped short so fast on that one it nearly threw me.
    1233925271_8be9acc.gif
    You say that as if you've never accused in complaint that Metta8's hyperlinks are his political statements. And not just that, but you've either intimated or said outright--I don't now recall which--that the content of his hyperlinked so-called political statements were made in personal persecution of you. So you might want to look again at your hand and see where that index finger points.

    Regardless...

    pazzy said...UNLESS society changes it's thought process towards blacks, then shit will not change. ... if white guys were sagging their pants and making gangster rap, you wouldn't be saying shit.


    Apparently you didn't see how roughly I handled my nephew when he was younger and puttin' on tha thug. You think I'm any gentler in person? Nooooo. "We raised you to be a nice Jewish boy," I told him, with my stern face on.

    You don't think for one second that society changed for gay people to gain our rights do you? They didn't change for us. We changed them. They changed not for us but for themselves if they changed at all, because we showed them truth they could not deny. That wasn't given to us; we fought like hell for that; we forced that. We came out in force for that. Where the fuck do you think your rights are coming from, them? Nooooo. We gained that on our own. They can continue to go fuck themselves for all it matters. Nice to have them along for our ride, but we don't owe them shit. They didn't do anything for us.

    Where do you think Black civil rights came from? You think they were just handed over? That society changed its prejudices to accommodate Black people? Noooooo. MLK Jr., Malcolm X, et al., the entire black movement, those guys changed their world, our world. The world didn't change for them. This stuff doesn't just happen. You have to make it happen.

    Now outside of my own outsider observations, I don't know directly the black experience of course so feel free to correct me if I've missed the mark, but "holding back", even in the example provided, does seem a bit harsh. But I think I understand what he might be seeing. Maybe the expression of it simply isn't so targeted.

    I haven't studied sociology formally in very many years so forgive my absence of terms--someone better educated is welcomed to fill in--but there seems some "social nepotism" (maybe there's a better way to say that?) missing from black culture which might not be so much a matter a holding back but of a lack of building up, misperceived as holding back.

    This guy in the article seems to see black people being put down for being educated--this is just my speculation--but maybe it's more that there's not so much encouragement to get better educated. I don't know that, just throwing it out there.

    Where my mind goes with some of that is what some subcultures of immigrants to America experienced, who did provide for each other in very supportive ways. Jewish Americans and being educated, very important to the culture. And they had to fight a Jewish Quota, a barrier to their education. Or take the Irish immigrants, for example, who early on in New York especially were very big in civil service jobs.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_American
    As late as the 1960s, even after minority hiring efforts, 42% of the NYPD were Irish Americans


    But, and again, this is an outsider's view, when there are, say riots in black areas, it does strike the eye odd to see destruction of their own property. Watts, Overtown, et al. I don't recall the Jewish people or Irish ever doing that to themselves. That would run counter to helping their own community.

    So even though that's likely at least symbolic of the height of tearing down, I think it still a symptom of a lack of building up.

    So I guess I just think there can be a more positive view which I'd hope would be more constructive instead having a view which seems to me to be so demoralizing, the attitude of which, in turn, keeps people down. You need to break through that. Society won't change to make that happen. Just like it didn't change for us. We changed society.

    The insinuation of the article is that well dressed black men are being held back from being successful because people judge them based a stereotypical association they have with supposedly poorly dressed black men. The reason that's a double standard is because poorly dressed white people don't hold back well dressed white people. No one is judging the whole white race based on what Axel Rose wore in 1985, yet here people are saying that a hip hop artist's attire is holding back his whole race.

    It's kind of like when closet cases blame other gay people for homophobia because of the way some people dress in gay bars.

    It is that unacceptable gansta way of dressing that is hurting the black community in general. When most people think of inner city black neighborhoods among the first thing that comes to mind is guys dressed like they just crawled out of a trash can. That is a horrible image and it is holding back poor black communities throughout the country. Part of improving and rebuilding the image of inner city black neighborhoods is to get the inhabitants to take more pride in how they look when in public. It is time to eradicate the saggy pants and gangsta behavior that have hurt and terrorized many inner city black neighborhoods. It is negative behavior like this that reinforces these horrible stereotypes that you are griping about repeatedly like an old, broken record.

    Nobody is saying buy a uniform, on the contrary. What we are saying is that people both black and white who come from poor areas need to take more pride in themselves by dressing more appropriately and present themselves in a more positive way.

    Yes, those poor people and the potato sacks they call clothes. Let's make poverty, football Jerseys, and White Castle illegal because they cause rich people to suffer.

    Charles Barkley is playing into the double standard I'm talking about. There are plenty of white people who have green mohawks and piercings that exclude them from gainful employment, yet white guys in suits are not being held back by them.



    Oh, but this does 'apply' to my life, indirect anyway. Not that is any of your business but my high school drop out, saggy pants wearing, gansta rapper lovin, suburban WHITE, 20 year old nephew is currently serving a 2 year prison term for home invasion, I suppose a victim of "hanging around the wrong crowd", must be 'cool' these days to drop out of school, write and speak Ebonics, hang, bang, steal and do prison before you can legally drink alcohol, and who or what do you think my nephew got his influence from? Certainly not from anyone in my family as none of us have ever been sent to prison, he is the first one!, I should have congratulated him on his efforts! Although maybe my tea party, anti government, under educated sister may have something to do with my nephews philosophy icon_rolleyes.gif

    My biggest advice to my nephew, when he gets out of prison is STOP HANGING, BANGING WITH YOUR RAPPER HOMIES (EX) AND PULL YOUR DAM PANTS UP, hopefully he will take advantage of prison and get his GED while incarcerated

    ^So, in a round about way, you're trying to saying your nephew is unintelligent and brainwashed?
