I am taken aback by the simple-minded (i.e., dim-witted) raw racism of so many of the comments here. Blacks, like Whites, like men, like women, like Democrats, like Republicans -- these are all *very* large groups. And consequently each of these groups include a huge range of behaviors. There are smart people and dumb people in each of these groups. There are lazy people and hard-workers in each of these groups. There are good people and bad people in each of these groups. Aweaver, Mhood & Abewas think that just because they're knuckle-dragging thugs, everyone else is too. It just ain't so.
