Truetothecause, I went back and found your question, asking me if I think "these kids are being programmed to commit crimes?" My answer is yes. The programmer is all of us, those who allow violence to exist in their neighborhoods and on the television, in the music they listen too, in the books they read. If a kid is surrounded by violence, then he can be very easily influenced to copy it. If you were eluding to some racist plot by the white race to destroy us or to keep us in line, then my answer is NO! I don't see how they can possible be clever enough to do this without affecting their own children too. Despite what some may think, these white people are not that evil or even that smart. You want to see what is causing all of this criminal behavior, just be more observant of what goes on in the black community. You won't see a lot of outside influences. Lack of parental guidance is where it starts. From there it is all downhill. Put the black family back together and most of the problems will be solved. Blaming outsiders won't solve anything.
