Guhhh stop calling them african americans. They're black. You could be black but from England, or the Czech republic, or Germany, etc. I also have lots of friends that are white and from Africa. That term is stupid and misleading.
Blaming actions of black or at least inner-city blacks on slavery is ignorant and ridiculous. Slavery ended 142 years ago. If someone blames committing crimes on slavery they are lazy and should get an education and/or get their act together instead of complaining about events that their great grandfather didn't even go through and expect someone else to fix it for them.
Some people don't want to associate race with crime, but you simply can't ignore the facts.
I'm sure for presenting the facts and not acting protective of blacks, im going to get called a racist, but so be it. This is a day and age where everyone has to be "politically correct" or else risk being called something-ist. I think its disgusting that if you don't subscribe to one particular view and try to present the other side of the story, you're being a bigot or a racist.
