Can numbers and statistics be racist?

It's hard for most white people to understand how hard it is to live your life with a giant chip on your shoulder.

It might help to go where the jobs are, instead of sitting in one spot and wailing about why they do not come to you.

Many work outside of the area of town where they live. It's called commuting.

It's been my experience that for the most part, folks do pretty much what they are expected to do and that which rewards them best for least effort.

Exactly right. I don't live in the town I would really like to live in at this second, because I need to work in another town.

I have little sympathy for people who refuse to leave, Detroit, for instance, but complain they have no job opportuities there.

Lots of shortages of workers in the Dakota's.

People ought to consider MOVING to where workers are needed.

It is really sad that there is no work in the inner cities. But it is really sad why there are no jobs in the inner cities. Who in their right mind would want to run a store, shop, garage, factory, or any other kind of business in a war zone. I haven't been in the Milwaukee inner city for many years, and I don't plan on going there anytime soon. It is a area run by the devil, and completely out of control. I pray to God that someone in there will turn things around. It is time for these residents to fix their neighborhoods, and not wait for the rest of us and the government to do it for them. Doctor Martin Luther King must be rolling over in his grave.
