    Note that there is no smiley or commentary to suggest anything other than seriousness

    Basing logic on statistics and probability is not racist. Racism is ignoring facts actually, and those are the facts, so no, it's not.

    It makes me think you didn't understand the tone of my post.

    It makes me think that you took my quote out of context to get a specific reaction to validate what you WANT to believe.

    It makes me think you have an ax to grind for some unknown reason....?

    And it confirms my thinking that you're an asshole. Good job!:clap2:

    It would seem, based on many of his other posts, that it's only racist to say anything bad about black folks ... while he himself is willing to post truly racist comments about others.

    But as society sees it, KK, FACTS are RACIST! REALITY is racist. Ignoring facts and reality is "multiculturalism." Facing facts and reality is complete and total racism.

    No commentary, huh? How about "Or, I'd become President of the United Stated!"?

    Or, did you simply, but purposely overlook that?

    I'd think "middle class white American wrote something he doesn't know about".

    Sounds like a man suffering from white guilt.

    That's exactly what it is, and the attitude that enables everyone who fucks up and makes bad decisions be the victim.
    Until someone, (regardless if they are white, black, pink, or purple), stands up and takes responsibility for themselves, and their actions, they can't better themselves.
