I think we knew you were trying out all the buttons here :D

But I DO think a lot has to do with how and where any child, of any race, creed or colour or what have you, is brought up.

Despite phrases like 'you can take the child out of the Bronx, but you can't take the Bronx out of the child' etc. Give that child a good education and a good family home life and they will do better than if they were trying to survive in a slum with violence and poverty around them. USUALLY !

And as for Scarlett ... I'm not even going to admit I know that song off by heart!

I'm just trying to get your wheels spinning here. I was married to an African-American for 7 years, and my son, who lives with me, is bi-racial. He also just skipped a grade in school. I do believe in science, so I felt the question should be asked.

By Hugh G. Rection• 14 years 10 months ago.
Hugh G. Rection

Wrong. I never once mentioned blacks. Never the color of ones skin or the color of a dog. But if it is proven that animals, which humans are also, display certain characteristics simply due to genetics, then why can't the same ring true with people? Does everyone have the same mental capacity and ability to learn?

It is not racist to identify a common trend. Oh, and the video was made by a black man and aired on BET! Even this man notices the common problems, and HE DIRECTED IT AT HIS OWN RACE!

I totally disagree with that .. If DNA shows something differences , it doesnot mean they are not clever . God created us in different colors (black , white , yellow and so on , Just to know each other and respect others . There lots of black people clever than wihte , The matter is how we think and study to be clever,

Hugh seems not to have been very active in here for about 5 months so maybe suddenly had a day off - or an 'off' day - to tell us how wonderful he and and to strum up the threads he finds interesting (which, incidentally, are usually the contraversial threads) :o)

Hugh.G, been to any KKK meeting lately? yes i agree that black communities have their problems. but no need to start throwing stereotypical comments out there.

and comparing color of a dog to human skin color? and do you know why prisons are full of minorities? because it is easier to convict a black or Hispanic man than a white man. also minorities tend to earn less than whites. so minorities usually cannot afford lawyers like white people can

By Hugh G. Rection• 14 years 10 months ago.
Hugh G. Rection

There are many contributing factors, but one would think that at a certain age you realize you need to improve your situation and stop committing crime.

If the government doesn't help they are racist. So now people can live off of the goverment's dime. Look at welfare; do you realize that now minorities are complaining that it fosters dependancy? There are many educational opportunities specifically for minorities. What is just given to the poor trailer trash white kid for being poor and white?

There are so many minority support groups that provide information, support, and present educational opportunities for the minorities. They just don't take it. They'd rather keep flossin', shinin', pimpin', droppin' it like it's hot, buyin' grills, spinning rims, spittin' out kids, slingin' rocks, and drawing welfare checks than have to work for something. See, here is a simple instructional video:

As opposed to red ones? Or should that then be from white to red to brown to black ...

Oh and what about yellow? That should go after red to make the mix correct to produce brown.

We will be talking about little green men soon .. lmao

I used wrong word... I said 'suppression' instead of 'oppression'. *sigh* It's sort of similar though, isn't it?

Maybe to oppress is heavier ...

By stealth• 14 years 10 months ago.

it is the access to facilities available that helps a community to improve. If you see the way

the tribals and minorities are suppressed in different countries of the world it is the same.

gypsy read the last statement in the link I have provided.

It says the same

Dr Watson has said: "People say it would be terrible if we made all girls pretty. I think it would be great."

so there it is.

By Gypsy• 14 years 10 months ago.

Hugh G. Reaction, that may have something to do with years of opression, lack of access to education and poverty imposed by white people.

According to a former professer of mine who went to school with these two at cambridge ( I think it was these two) they're biggest concern in life was to make a big scientific breakthrough so they could impress the girls at the local pub. So I'm not that surprised.

i agree jauntie, but is it really true I'm begining to think it's because of their color, but how can this be possibly true?

So this is what DNA is actually cabable of??

It is proven that different breeds of dogs are prone to have common behavioral and mental characteristics based only on their breed; why can't the same apply to humans? What are prison's full of minorities? Why after all these years are they making only little progress for advancement as a whole, even with so much given to them?
