Why do people associate all the negative stereotypes of black Americans to all blacks?


For example crime. Statistics don’t lie. I’m not going to sit here and act like I know why the pattern continues, however I hate when people say that’s all blacks know. Seriously?

As poor as some countries are in Africa, it’s not the people committing crimes…. It’s the government in which the people suffer from. Tell me when was the last time you’ve seen on the news of an African immigrant or first generation African american committing a crime?

Are you seriously going to define all blacks by 13%? It’s not even 13% because not all blacks behave this way. When slavery ended, they sent blacks out, uneducated to roam the streets. The ones that couldn’t get a job started to steal. etc etc. Who do we truly blame?

Why do people associate all the negative stereotypes of black Americans to all blacks?
People have been brainwashed by the media to associate black people with crime and instead of doing their own research they just accept it as truth.

Again, a lot of people are brainwashed into thinking that way. Even though stats don’t lie they don’t tell the whole story either: furthermore there are some people who will try to manipulate those stats to their own benefit. For example: Someone says blacks commit a lot of crimes and you point out that whites commit 70% of the crimes in America. They will turn around and say that per capita or percentage wise, blacks commit more, trying to make whites look better. However what they fail to take into account is that we make up a smaller portion of the population so it’s much easier to elevate our crime stats. Say you have a pizza cut into 12 slices. 3 slices represent blacks, 9 whites. You eat 1 slice of each and that represents crime. The black slice represents 33% of blacks while the white slice only represents 11% of whites, even though you only ate 1 slice of each. So looking at those stats we’re 3 times more likely to commit a crime and per capita 3 times as many blacks commit crimes. So we must be very careful when reading stats and do our own research because racists will try to trick you into believing false truths.

What we’re seeing right now is a result of businesses pulling out of the inner cities and taking good paying jobs with them and the CIA dumping drugs into our communities. Prior to 1980 the black community had problems but nowhere near what we’re experiencing today. Due to racism, we’ve always had higher unemployment numbers and were paid less than whites. But black men still believed in working hard, getting married, and providing for their children. Reagan came in and started his war on drugs (black people) and all that changed. When gangsta (c)rap came out in the late ’80’s we were brainwashed into thinking this is how things are supposed to be. We’re supposed to be gangstas, thugs, b*tches, and h*es. Not all of us, mind you, but enough. As we can see that three pronged attack (loss of jobs, drugs, and music) have left our communities devastated.

Now we know better, now we know the truth. So now we must take responsibility for our actions, and take back our neighborhoods from the thugs. We have to pool resources together and rebuild our communities and create businesses in our own backyards. We’ve done it before: look at Rosewood from 1910-1920, Harlem from 1920-1930, Black wall street from 1920-1960, and Detroit from 1950-1980, we can do it again.

We need to get back to our roots, when we considered each other brothers and sisters, instead of n*ggas and h*es. Everyone else comes to this country, work with each other, and they succeed. They build businesses, give each other low interest rate loans, provide low cost housing, and they work hard and pull themselves up. We used to do that and if we’re going to survive, we need to do it again.

Statistics do lie. The most common made up lie was that &quot:70% of black women are single&quot:, when that is far from the truth. But people are close minded and when one black acts up, all take the blame. I’m used to hearing and seeing this, but don’t care because, just cause when have the same commonality of skin color means that I’d like you, stick with you, or even associate with you.

Because they are ignorant and full of hatred and not worth one iota of attention

very true yet people don’t like to admit it. The only thing that occurs with us African Americans is that we let society blame us for its problems when we barely even run this society, white people do. I am not saying that we are completely innocent for our wrongdoing but other races are constatly bringinng us down an dwe can no longer get ahead. Unfortunately there is a cycle that we are enduring and at this point not many people have managed to break it.
