Destroyer, as far as OJ is concerned fuck him, he's a fucking idiot and doesn't reflect or stand for a population of people. As far as you seeing a community of people jumping up and down, thats crap. You saw reporters distorting what they knew would further divide public opinion of the race issues of America and they (the media) did that shit good. You probably saw a small group of African Americans who supported him and fell for what the media intended to do. Its the same shit the media pulled in 1994-1995 with the so called East Coast vs. West Coast beef which caused many deaths for the media to sell more news papers.
Is it safer for a black man to walk through a white neighborhood the vise versa NO!
My mother was chased by white people going to work back in the 70's. As early as the 90's some of my friends where chased in Queens New York with bats and such.
I my self have experienced on a number of occasions being stopped by cops and searched in white neighborhoods for no reason. In San Diego, a called straight out called me a N***G with no provocation. Holding positions not normally occupied by a black man can cause allot of people to do dumb things. because I experienced the most racism in a particular work environment I wont go into details, but brought it up to prove that not all things are great even when you do advance in this world and trust me, my life wasn't a free ride to be where I am at today.
And there are neighborhoods where you or me won't be safe walking through. So to think one would be safer then the other is a misconseption.
As far as the statistics with Jail are concerned, I will have to research that and get back to you, because I don't want to speak on something I don't have facts about.
As far as Rev. Wright is concerned he is just as stupid as any KKK member trying to justify racism. If fact the Catholic Church has been embroiled in child molestation cases for years. So am I to say any body who went to that church and has gotten married by the priest and baptized, and they know said priest for over 20 years supports "Child Molestation" no, I am left to make my own opinion about the person.
If I was Obama I would have a long as sit down with my Pastor after that stunt, but I would distance my self from him. In my prospective it was a direct attack on Obama as well. Unfortunately many will see this as the views of an entire population which is not true.
When this election started I actual supported McCain (lets not get into why). After a while I then looked at Paul, then Hillary. In my prospective out of them I felt in my heart McCain said some things I can agree with, but then I listened to what Hillary and Paul was saying. I actually became interested in Obama after I saw with my 2 eyes what no other candidate was able to do, bring people together. Than saw the fact that we brought a fresh and new prospective to the table. But, yes your right, I am 100% sure allot of people voted for him because he's black, as well as women over 50 voted for Hillary as well as people who don't want a Black man or a White women in office voted for McCain.
