    No one is bring up slavery, but it feels like we are still living in it. Have you ever been to a job and knew you were qualified and was turned down? I could do a survey on how many blacks male or female have applied for a job and was turned down. The percentage would be high. Some of them with college degrees or good work experience. While the the employer save the job for his best friend's daughter,son, or wife etc.

    I am always amazed how people still bring up slavery and how black people have had it so bad.The best part is that the people doing the talking are young and have no idea what they are talking about.Yes black people did have it rough a long time ago but get over it.Indians have had it just as tough.Everyone has the same chances and oppurtunitys to make something of themselves today.It comes down to a choice.Some choose to act stupid and sell dope and some choose to do somthing they can be proud of, just stop whining about racism and not having the oppurtunities that other people have and do something with your life. And just for the record; there is no such thing as an African American or Indian American or any other ________ American.Its just plain AMERICAN. NOW GET A JOB. Good Day.

    Yes I went through a fad in life. It wasn't shown my boxers to everyone I came in contact with. I'm in my late 30's. Dressing neat to me is when your pants not hanging to your knees size three time bigger than you wear.Russell Simmions prove to us wear can wear jeans and Tee shirt in public eyes and be respected by public.

    How old are you? What is dressing neat? They are young children they don't have to dress neat!!! Grown men wearing sagging pants are a nono. Young men are just following a fad. I mean leave the kids alone. I had fads when I was young and so did you and I am pretty sure you ask your parents for the lastest styles. And so did many of us including our parents.

    It do not make a difference if you are black. Your kind of black down other blacks more than the whites.
  • by Data Man on Oct 15, 2009 at 12:18 PM
    To Hunter, its clear that you dont know what the work struggle means. I am from Martin Co. and I know how hard it is for blacks in that neck of the woods. I am so sick and tired of people shooting down minorities and talking about food stamps and section 8 and how you are taking care of them. What about all those years when black women were raped and bi-racial kids were a product of the act? Those slave owners didnt take care of those kids (Their owns kids matter of fact). Now when minorities have problems taking care of their kids you call them dead beat. Minorities built this country right off their very own back and people like you are still profiting from it!!!

  • by Citizen Location: Hamilton on Oct 14, 2009 at 11:15 AM
    This messages are for the following: Tamekia Williams, Reality Check and Back to Citizen. I'm black male first of all we need to throw the race card away. When I veiwed the drug busted I read about some white people busted to. We keep passing the buck if you break the law you do the time rather black or white. We keep blaming everybody for our mistake keep your nose clean you want have any problems. White people wear their pants hanging and dred locks.I wish all people would dress neat but thats there choice just respect them for who they are. We are not perfect . I agree we do need to solve more of the killing in Martin County but as citizens we need to do our part in the community and stop pointing our fingers. Yes Bradon came from a good family he just behavior like that because he choose to. They need to stop protecting him. You can lead horse to the water cant make drink. Like i said in the previous comment GOOD JOB GIBB AND OTHER AGENTS: JUST FINISH WHAT YALL START. DONT HATE !!!
