      Racism you say? How about outrage? When are the reverend’s Jackson & Sharpton going to march against the violence happening all over the country in black neighborhoods. They never will because they have been blaming whites for their problems since the 60’s. You are”tiredofraciism” but like the reverends, you ain’t gotta do anything about the real problems plaguing blacks today. Easier to blame white folk ain’t it.

        All anyone does is blame others, but what can you say when television publicize it more then anything else on.
