    I know what you're thinking...Youi think I'm gonna make some anti religious post...

    But honestly these stastics you post have more to do with black people than religion...

    Discuss....


    It's gonna be really funny seeing the dumbasses stumble over themselves to call me racist when they know I'm right. I can't wait...

    America has a preponderance of religious fanatics. It also has a lot of crime. It also has the biggest cars. Big cars must cause crime. This study is idiotic.

    You know, buying ice cream kills Indian people because when ice cream sales are high, so is the death rate in India. It has nothing to do with the fact that ice cream sales and India death rates both increase when the temperature goes up. Not at all.

    And the huge upswing in teen pregnancy in the 80's coincided perfectly with the massive increase in Dorito consumption among teens....coincidence? I THINK NOT!!!!

    It has to do with all races, not just blacks. Everyone knows that ethnically and racially homogenous societies always have less social discord. Our country is a gigantic social experiment never before attempted in human history! Think about it. All races and cultures thrown together and granted equal rights. Some bad stuff was bound to happen. But we've only been around for a few hundred years and we only granted women rights a little over a hundred years ago. Blacks and other races have only had equal rights for about 50 years now. In historical terms, that's just a blink of an eye. I say we keep trying it for another few hundred years and see how it turns out.

    Oh yes people, the glass if half full today.
