no, i agree with that totally. you're responsible for what you do and say. but, the main problem with race in america today--and by race, we all know we're still talking about blacks/whites--is radiating from within the black community. embracing "gangsta" culture was basically a conscious decision to limit their entire futures. Obviously there are educated black folk, just as there are ignorant white folk, but you cannot deny the overall culture one is a part of. Those educated people who speak out against this internal travesty should be honored, but fools like Sharpton and Jackson get the center stage and are seen as the figureheads of black society. That's a conscious decision--along with heavy media endorcement--to perpetuate their own limitations!
