    if a white person made broad and general statements as to the poor character of black people it would not be accepted.
    if the person is black or pretends to be black is it then OK to make those same broad sweeping statements as to the poor character of black people?

    i think white people are smart enough to put a black face on certain statements so as to get them out there without challenge.
    we seem to accept garbage from black people that we would never accept from white people.
    i now hear things that i once heard from white racists out of the mouths of "black" people.

    Very interesting points...

    It's one thing to put down and another to do it with constructive criticism.

    But I feel you are talking about a black person saying something like, "Black people are so ghetto and loud all the time."

    Yeah that's totally nuts to me...I would view them just as negatively as if a white person would say that, if not more. Just on the basis of them being black and putting down their own race.

    They aren't even apart of the solution, they are against, so there for they are the enemy.

    if i put up some statements then you would say that they are not bad statements and we would go off into whether the statements are negative or not.
    i am talking about broad, general statements that suggest black people are inferior or have a character problem.

    I wouldn't say they're not "bad statements." I would simply ask "what makes them 'bad statements'?"

    Please give examples of these "broad, general statements that suggest black people are inferior or have a character problem."

    You're entitled to your opinion but that doesn't mean you're telling the truth.

    Moving on..... please give examples of these "broad, general statements that suggest black people are inferior or have a character problem."
