It's Not Because You're Black...

it's because you particularly look suspicious walking around a store with baggy clothes and bulging pockets. Most people don't single others out because of skin color. I mean any employee at any store would question your motives if you walked slowly down isles and hid behind racks like that. Plus, why pull that card if you really are stealing!!! I myself am black and I'm tired of this "we're being oppressed" attitude a lot of us have. Yes, i admit racism is still around!! But a lot of the time we sorts bring the discrimination down on ourselves.

Yeah. Just like when Trevon Martin wore a "suspicious" hoody, while eating candy and walking in a predominantely white neighborhood....<br />
Look I get the idea you are standing behind. However, most of the "race card claims" have at the very least SOME truth to them. And, yeah some are pretty much bull. However, the thinly veiled biases do not diminish, because a group of people use the ideology as a means to make allowances for their failures.
