The system doesn't give a crap what color you are, it cares how much money you have. An easy example is DUI (DWI) enforcement. If you have enough money for a good lawyer you will never be convicted for a DUI on a first offense, and probably not for multiple offenses. You will get "reckless driving" or some other BS. If you can't afford a good lawyer you get a DUI on your record. The court system is trying to empty your pockets and it doesn't care what color skin is under that clothing as long as they can hold you up by your heals and shake money out of you. I grew up in a mostly white rural area of Michigan, and I assure you that poor white trash are not treated any better by the system than poor black people. I have enough "white trash" in my family to have seen it first hand. Cops in all white (or almost all white) areas don't go on vacation, or sit around like they are in Mayberry... they hassle the poor white trash. 90% of the time when they hassle the poor white trash they find something illegal of some kind. Driving a POS is just as much probable cause in my home town as "driving while black" is in other areas. Since the "victims of profiling" in my home town were white and were "up to no good" nobody freaks out about it. The fact that a rich kid in his BMW he got for his 16th Birthday has a bunch of Xanax and Pot is meaningless because he comes from the right side of the tracks and won't be pulled over. Poor white trash with the same amount of drugs in a POS car would be pulled over on some BS pretext, and go down for intent to distribute. The Jessy Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the future are going to have a tough row to hoe.... suburban white kids are growing up wishing they were black. They rarely see poor black people on TV, the only black people on TV, or other media outlets are not just "not poor" they range from "rich" to "oh my GOD are you rich". It isn't just PC crap, they really wish they were as cool as the Media stars (all venues, music, TV, movies, sports) that they see every day regardless of race. With the only image of black people in the mainstream media being between rich and very rich white guilt is hard to instill into the younger people of the country, and without white guilt Jessy Jackson is out of a job. If white guilt goes away, we can get down to the real problem, poverty. Poverty regardless or race is the main cause of misery and crime. Keith PS: What is going to happen with the N-bomb? Suburban white kids growing up today sing along to their favorite songs just like you and I did... the average suburban white kid has dropped the N-bomb more times in a weekend than Paula Dean has in her entire life!
