Lets focus on the African American issues..

As an African American male, I have no problems with my Mexican male and female counterparts. They are doing the right things in pursuance of the American dream. For starters, "THEY" stick together, THEY build each other up, THEY trust each other, and finally,THEY are not commiting crimes in OUR neighborhood at RECORD LEVELS. I'm more concerned about my culture, hanging on the street corners,jeans hanging off thier asses, not going to school, NOT being productive citizens,but being USELESS & WORTHLESS..So that's my take on it. Personally, I would rather have a Mexican neighbor that's works for a living than a black neighbor on section 8,not working with a LINK card looking for handouts..IMHO.

    I have lived in Detroit as well as many years near the border of Arizona and Mexico. So if you really are a black male your post is concerning to me in fact that in different cultures there is preconceived perceptions or image of what one may or may not be. Your post is a perfect example of stereotyping an entire race. Thus causing others to do the same. Maybe its easier for a Latino to obtain a job verses their black neighbor because of people like you who assume the worse. And when I say " people like you" I mean no harm because if you truly are feeling this way I think the only productive way of changing your sadness towards your race is by getting involved in your community. Help make a change don't continue to spread the notion their bad. Be a believer in people not color.

    All races/colors/creeds have spoiled apples. I am Hispanic and we also have lazy bums on Section 8 with a link card-legally here with the right to work! So many want to work and we have those who choose not to because they found the loopholes. But this is in all...

    All races/colors/creeds have spoiled apples. I am Hispanic and we also have lazy bums on Section 8 with a link card-legally here with the right to work! So many want to work and we have those who choose not to because they found the loopholes. But this is in all races. The social security office waiting room has more folks under 60 than Sr citizen applying for benefits and they drive some nice cars, have their hair and nails done and tattoos all over. Our government needs to begin tougher audits and our citizens reporting folks who they know are abusing the system. If you can afford a tattoo, then you better be working not collecting benefits.
