Good to see you, Ra

Yes. My agenda to enlighten the masses is in full effect.

While I agree with you that I rarely trust anything the gov't says, this figure does not seem farfetched to me, mostly because the crime rate among blacks is so high that any crime in particular would have a magnified percentage. I realize there are socioeconomic reasons for this.

When actually combatting the problem of racism, I agree so far as to say that the focus should FIRST be on the surrounding aspects, which collectively in this case make up the phenomena known as "institutionalized racism", which has had the most adverse effects on society. This, of course, does not deny the existence of or the importance of combatting other kinds of racism, one being black racism.

>After all...it doesnt

Well, it DOES matter, it just won't have as negative an effect on American society if one doesn't have the "juice". It is still evil.

Hey Ra - you should go to thelyceum.org - there's a lot of debates there where your knowledge of ancient Egypt/Kemet would be of good use. PM me.
