Race is the strangest thing, no matter which race you are. We all have some opinion or other, and while whites bend over backwards to be "politically correct", non-whites bend over backwards to be "justified".
I have lived for twenty years in two countries, both of them in Africa. The names of these countries are unimportant.
In country number 1, violent crime is almost unheard of. I have spent many days sitting on a floor in "kia"(house) sharing sandwiches with friendly black people. Black people delight in greeting you on the road, stranger or not, simply to discuss your health or the weather. Never have I met such caring, gentle group of people. Truly a joy to be with. However, they live in such poverty, and so many injustices marr their lives.
In country number 2, the black people are far more fortunate. Food is readily available for them, and most of them are employed- unlike those across the border. However, crime is out of control in this country- and it is committed mainly by black people. Black people justify this by saying that it is poverty and injustice that compels them to act this way. Most often they claim it is racism which pushes them to act like this. However, they forget to confine their acts to other races, and all peoples live in fear of these people. While fraud, etc, is commited by whites, it is almost unheard of for a white person to commit violent crimes, irrespective of their own poverty.
This has led me to believe that neither race, nor poverty, nor injustice can force a person to behave in a certain way. Crime is committed by people who choose crime, and although many hardships may come our way, I choose to follow the example of the black people in country number 1,
even though, I am white.
