thanks again for all the advice people - you're all very great people and you should be proud of yourselves.
My apologies for my language... i was frustrated over the entire thing, and usually maintain a higher quality of vocabulary than simply slurring out my emotions. I'll be wiser for the future though on that matter.
I don't blame crime on race - i don't really blame it on anything except bad parenting nd social values. Think of it this way... while you might associate a black person with, say, stealing your car - what do you associate a white person doing?
While white people may not be your first pick for car thieves, i want you to briefly remind yourself of one word.... one company, who ruined thousands of lives. ENRON
Think briefly now, on major pharmaceutical companies - an incident a while ago produced aspirin that was tainted with AIDs. The company's founder, a white man, decided that instead of destroying those things, he would sell them over-sea where laws did not punish them. His decision to infect potentially millions of people was made pruely to see a bigger profit margin.
Yes, i'v seen the studies on how low-income areas have lots of crime - here in eugene, we have a huge homeless problem, and a massive meth problem - i'v seen this stuff first hand. But guidance, morals, and social influences create the person. But it is not always the poor who are criminals... just look at the politicians and those in high-ranking government positions (Mark Foley). Crime is rampant in this society... it is not a fault of color or class, but by a lack of guidance, poor upbringings, and greed.
But anyways, lets not let this topic get off hand. I was mugged, and i got back from the doctor's a little while ago. My nose is broken, and i have a 50/50 chance of losing my front left tooth. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow to get my tooth looked at and evaluated.
Bugfreak - never fear or seclude yourself for your color - you, like people of brown, yellow, white, and purple, have a good heart - and that is what truly matters in all of this.
