Black People and Law Enforcement have always had a pretty tumultuous relationship.
Many people (mostly select groups that are Pro-Caucasian People) believe that there would be no crime, rape or murder in the United States if someone would just lock up all those pesky Black People who are genetically predisposed to committing crime.
Before Black People set food in the colonies, there was absolutely no criminal activity. But after the emancipation proclamation, 100% of all crimes were committed solely by Black People and directed exclusively against Caucasian People.
So it is no wonder that law enforcement feels the need to pull over and harass someone who happens to be “Driving While Black” even though more than half of rapists are not Black People and serial killers tend to not be Black Males who happen to be interested in police work.
It is also worth mentioning that many of the gangsters who made millions bootlegging during prohibition like Al Capone and Lucky Luciano were secretly Black People. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the couple who robbed banks and killed innocent people before being gunned down by police? They were Black People too. The kids who shot up Columbine? Timothy McVeigh? George Sodini? Richard Poplawski? Ryan Alexander Jenkins? Raymond Clark? Charles Stuart? Andrea Yates? Susan Smith? Aileen Wuornos? All Black People.
But should the entire Black Community be blamed for the actions of a few individuals. Well of course they should. Who else is going to take the blame? So disenfranchised Black People will continue to disrespect law enforcement. That is until Hispanic People become the new Black People.
When it comes to the subject of marriage, Black People have a very unique story to tell.
During slavery, when a Black Couple wanted to get married they were out of luck because it was illegal for slaves to marry, so the ritual of “jumping the broom” was invented as a symbolic gesture (it is assumed the game of limbo was created when a large number of slaves got divorced).
There are 40.9 million Black People in America. More than 1 million Black Males are incarcerated and are thus out of the dating pool, while educated Black Females seem to be putting their education and careers first, as well as refusing to date outside of their race. What’s the deal with Black People and marriage?
Black People, usually Black Females, have extremely poor judgment when it comes to choosing a spouse, hence why the term “baby mama” has become so popular. Black Females are also 10 times more likely to be romanced by a “thug” or “baller” with no apparent future or prospects who very clearly has no intention of ever getting married or taking responsibility for any children born out of wedlock.
Also Black People, usually Black Males, have suffered a habitual problem with not taking responsibility for the children they father and have instead opted to have children by multiple women instead or, in other words, have endorsed polygamy (minus the marriage part). Many Black Males have been raised exclusively by their mothers and have no real concept of what a father is and are doomed to follow that terrible example.
However, there are solutions that can improve the rate of marriage among Black People, but they seem to rest almost exclusively in the hands of Black Females. Black Males are still males, after all, and it is nearly impossible for them to change their ways short of mind control.
The easiest solution would be for Black Females, namely the educated ones, to open themselves up to pursuing romantic relationships with Non-Black People, but since that has very little chance of actually happening, Black Females could resign themselves to remaining celibate until their wedding night. But since that also has almost zero chance of ever happening, the only solution left would be for The President to issue an executive order for more Black People to marry each other.
Sadly, that probably wouldn’t work either. The search for more realistic solutions to get a Black Person to marry another Black Person is still ongoing.
As much as incarcerated Black People dig getting out of prison, it doesn’t beat going right back to prison.
“But why would Black People dig going back to prison?” you ask? The answers may shock you.
When an incarcerated Black Person gets out of prison, he (or even she) will not have many options. Sure, there are some Black People who can manage to put their past behind them and make a new life for themselves by becoming a productive member of society… and then there are the formerly incarcerated Black People who become so consumed with obtaining a Cadillac Escalade with chrome rims and expensive tennis shoes that the only way to do so is to turn to crime. After all, most employers are far more likely to hire someone with a clean record and a collage education instead of a (Black) ex-con with a GED.
And so, the only place where a formerly incarcerated Black Person can feel any sense of acceptance or purpose (no matter how superficial) is in prison. Unless they become rappers. And even then going to prison could enhance their reputation and greatly increase their street cred. As long as there are prisons in America there will be Black People in them.
Over 10% of the Black Community is in prison (five times the rate it was 20 years ago). So when an incarcerated Black Person is released from prison, it’s like Thanksgiving, Christmas and winning the lottery all rolled into one.
After the O.J. Trial (he did it, by the way) Black People were convinced that they could finally beat the system. Not only did that turn out to be 100% not true, but O.J.’s acquittal systematically insured that Black People will always be harshly sentenced with long prison terms in America just to make up for it.
Of course, anyone being released from prison would dig getting out, but Black People experience prison releases in a far more unique fashion: it allows them the opportunity to figure out how to get back in.
