I am sorry, This is so much bull!. If anyone would care to take the time to look at the disproportionate amount of crime commited by non whites around the world, they would realise that there is a reason why so many are arrested etc. Blacks today commit a huge amount of crime against eachother as well as against whites. They are still holding whites responsible for slavery and blaming that on their current possition in society. That is a load of crock! As far as the disproportionate amount of whites in the force in Ferguson.. How many black uneducated anti police, "I am entitled" blacks do you think should be on that force? You cannot come up with a bunch of statistics and say that this is the problem. There is far too much info that has been convieniently left out. I am Black/White so half of my family hails from slavery. I, and many people like me can see that there are hundreds of thousands of blacks who just couldn't be bothered to do what is nessessary to improve their situation, they just lay blame on anyone other than themselves. This boy, who appearently, (before a proper investigation) Is innocent. well, How about the fact that he was a violent robber? No one bothering to meantion that huh. how about the fact that the cop who shot him was NOT a racist? not meantioned either! how about the fact that the "Peacefull" demonstrators were looting and beating people up, that is why they brought in the heavy equipment... This video is so bias and loaded with missinformation. I am sick to death of the PC bull in this country that stops people from stating the obvious. Blacks commit more crimes than whites! Check the statistics on that! When you ask them why... it's because of the whites... Of course it is. because why? Are they less intelligent than whites, They cannot get their arses out of the drug/gun/welfare mindset and go to school? how about a few fathers sticking around to help their children? shit, I could rant all day about this crap!

Need we say anymore? This is the American dream folks! Subjugate the population, squeeze and wring every last drop of dignity from them and then enslave them in debt and fear. Next? Export this policy around the globe. First stop, the UK - we really are becoming the 51st state!

America saving the free world? It's these arseholes that put us all in danger in the first place! This video clearly demnostartes what the US govt. is willing to do to its own people. Can you even imagine what they'll be prepared to do to us?

US govt? Scum of the entire planet! Not its people, just the fat, rich, arrogant and ignorant pricks that run the country!

The way things are looking in the USA, the 'fat, rich, arrogant and ignorant pricks that run the country' may end up reaping what they sow. They are so busy screwing the populace over, on so many matters and in so many ways, that they are failing to realize that they are making enemies of most of them. I think the American Revolution is not that far away.

You are so full of it your eyes are brown! UK has a history of 'Subjugation" all over the bloody planet... And it is the US that are at fault? Not only am I mixed race, I am also British/Canadian and living in the US. You know something.. The government over here is the same as the government in the UK. Some good some bad. The British Empire has basically enslaved conquered and stolen land from day one. Before ranting about the States, why don't you go learn some history about your own country! The USA has not put anyone in danger either. Islamists have been fighting themselves, the Jews and us "Infidels" for thousands of years. Their aim is to annihilate all of us. Nothing the US and britain have done in the last few decades has or will change the fact that the Islamic mandate, Their core belief is that we ar the devils that need to be killed. Anyone who looks at the bigger picture, Who takes time to to learn the history and be objective will see clearly that we had better join together on this one or we will have no choice in a few years!

"The USA has not put anyone in danger either". Saying things like this, just makes me question whether or not your previous posts are gold, or pure and utter hogwash like this statement. You. Really. Can't. Be. Serious. On no level whatsoever can you defend that statement. I'm not saying you are wrong about the British, but the Americans have taken f**king up the world to a whole new level. Tell me again why half of Europe where targeted by Middle Eastern men recently after the Americans started an illegal war against them? Next you'll tell us the Americans are the peace keepers of the world and have not en fact been at war with several nations at the same time, for nearly 90% of its existence.

Have you ever taken the time to research Middle Eastern history? Have you ever researched Islam? Have you read the Quran, The Hadith's? For thousands of years the Islamists have been killing each other and anyone who does not subscribe to their brand of Islam. Their MANDATE is to kill all Jews and Infidels. They are coming after us no matter what anyone does or doesn't do. I am not defending any western behaviour I am just stating facts. 9/11 was before we went over there, There have been and are still bombings all over the world in the name of Islam. Look at the map today and see how many countries the terrorists are killing in. They bomb in Africa, China, In the Middle East. Google it and you will see that there is NO BLOODY WAY that any western country has caused this. Only people with tunnel vision can say that it is because of America and Britain etc. When you have people who are taught from the day they take their first breath that the Jews and the Americans and British etc are devils. That Allah WANTS you to kill them, That your reward will be paradise. When your parents encourage you to martyr yourself. When they love martyrdom more than life, How on earth do you think that anything we do or don't do will make a difference? Killing us is in their holy books! They believe it to be the LITERAL word of god. It say's that we "Infidels" need to be subjugated or killed. If you listen to what Islamists are screaming all over this planet, In your cities and mine, They are telling us loud and clear that they plan on killing us. Anyone with any education about Islam can tell you that the west couldn't do anything to change their mandate It is their core belief, What they live and die for! A little insight to their madness is the fact that a Danish man draws a picture and these fanatics murder innocent people for it. Did you take note of how many of them wanted to kill because of it. It is not just a "Radical" faction... The mainstream Islamist wants us dead and has no problem killing anyone who is deemed an Infidel of Jew.

BTW. I was not defending American behaviour, I was merely stating facts. I am British/Canadian BTW... And the British have the same if not worse history of fighting throughout their history, All I am saying is... Educate yourself on the history of whom you are talking about before laying blame!

Have you ever researched the Quran? Have you ever researched Middle Eastern history? You have only read the Western narrative of history. Do you know that events that happen today or even those of 9/11 - we cannot be sure of the reality. You believe the history from the same people? As for the Quran and Hadith - it is clear that you have never read anything from them! If you had, then you would not claim that muslims have a "MANDATE" to kill jews and infidels. Nowhere is it stated that Jews and infidels need to be killed! Before you point a finger at all Muslims - just tot up the people that have been killed by Western instigated wars. Then add up the ones killed by actual terrorists. If 3000 people died on 9/11, by not-proven muslims - how many muslims died in the Middle East since then? The West has used every means to directly kill muslims and have always left in charge, other people who will continue to kill in their absence and to promote them. The Middle East was in peace and all religions lived in peace along side each other - until the West intervened with fake massacres and statements like blair's dodgy dossier to bring "peace" to the Middle East! BTW, I am not defending any terrorist or their actions I just want you to face facts and study other narratives and not just to look at what you are force fed by the media.

The Middle east has been at war for thousands of years. Where on earth do you get YOUR info from? They have never stopped killing eachother and any Jews and Infidels that they could. You are obviousley a conspiracy theorist. So there will not be any point in continuing to respond to you. I will never understand people who disbelieve everything they see and look for neferious plots behind everything that happens. we never landed on the moon, There are aliens in hanger 51 (I forget the number) Elvis is alive and well etc etc etc! I wish you well in the world that you live in.

Translated by an Arabic speaking Egyptian ..... Please don't make statements that you cannot back up! It may surprise you that not everyone receives their knowledge sitting in front of a TV or from Western newspapers!

Anyway... All you have to do is listen to what the Muslims are screaming out when they rally. You don't need to read anything, They tell you loud and clear that they will kill us all.

Mohammed said, “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.” (Hadith Al Buhkari vol. 9:57) This command is practiced in almost all Islamic Fundamentalist countries today.

3:85 “Whoever seeks other than Islam as his religion, it will not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he will be with the losers” “Slay the idolaters [non-Muslims] wherever ye find them, and take them captive, and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the last Day…. Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! (Sura 9:5,29,41).

Sura 5:51: “O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them for friendship is of them .” This friendship makes any Muslim a enemy of their own and deserving of the same fate as the unbeliever. This is because God does not guide an unjust people.The last hour will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, so that Jews will hide behind stones and trees and the Stone and the tree will say, O Muslim, O servant of God! There is a Jew behind me; come and kill him. The only exception will be the box-thorn for it is one of the trees of the Jews. (Sahih of Muslim, quoted by Israel and the Prophecies of Al Quran by Ali Akbar, Bismi Publishers 1992, p.44)

Sura 4:89 “seize them and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush. (Sura 9:5)

9.123 “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you”

9.73 “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”

Guest: Just saying ! (1159 days ago)

Before we start pointing the finger and blaming the blacks ! Who was it that brought them to your so called prosperous land! Well it all started way back in 1619 when the first 19 or so Africans arrived ashore near the English colony of Jamestown, Virginia, brought by Dutch traders who had seized them from a captured Spanish slave ship, So it's the 'white' man that has cause his own problems and now is blaming everyone else for his own actions.

It's been 149 since slavery stopped you would have thought by now you would have learnt how to deal with it, if not at least learnt how to live with it and live in peace, after all it's not YOUR world!

Slavery was an abomination, Whoever took part in it was evil... Study your history and you will see that Many Many of the people who captured the blacks in Africa for the White slave traders were black. The issues today in Western countries are not because of slavery. My family background has slaves in it. I do not use that fact as an excuse for any part of my life today. There are Black and White people in our countries who are living in perpetual criminal, violent, unemployed lifestyle. This has carried on from parent to child for decades. The Blacks say it is because of slavery... What is the whites excuse?, the Hispanics? People of ALL colours and races need to break the cycle before anything will improve. The first step is to OWN your own behaviour and work from there.

Go and have a look at the exam results in British colleges and Universities. Any subject, any sememster or any year! You will see all the "White" people at the top, grading down from light brown to dark brown and eventually black! You will also note that religions are also depicted in the list in the order of Chistians and jews first! AFTER GRADUATION: even the brown/blacks that manage to get through - have the most problems getting a job and those that do will have to manage with lower paid jobs. After getting the lower paid jobs, they will see their "WHITE" collegues get promoted, while they remain at entry level. After having several Master degrees and working 11 years at the entry level and not being sent for training courses, while "TOTAL IDIOTS" are promoted - I was told "UNOFFICIALLY" that: "(White) people would refuse to work under you and that is why you get passed every time!" ONLY THOSE THAT SUFFER - KNOW THE EXTENT OF THE PROBLEM!

If that was what you experienced it was completely wrong. And I sympathise with you however... That does not negate the facts that I stated. there is still prejudice in places but, The black populace does nothing to help itself in many many situations. They scream "Racism" even where there isn't any. They commit crimes then scream "injustice" when they are punished for it. While racism is a horrible thing that needs to be completely wiped out, Black America and Black Britain needs to smarten up and try to help itself instead of sitting back and complaining. (Always exceptions to the rule) I am speaking generally, I know that there is a faction of the black populace that is trying to do the right thing. As far as what you say about exam results. I would need to know far more than just results to assume that there is something nefarious going on. There could be a myriad of reasons why the results are that way.... (Assuming that your info is correct) I am 56 years old, lived in London for 22 years, I have seen with my own eyes and experienced the mindset of many black people there. It is not good, it is counter productive and the "Entitlement" lifestyle is harmfull to all. I have been called a racist in the past until people were made aware that I am also black, Then I was taken at my word instead of being accused of speaking through prejudism. We have gone from White racism to the complete reverse where Blacks accuse every white person of it no matter what they do or say.

If that was what you experienced it was completely wrong. And I sympathise with you however... That does not negate the facts that I stated. there is still prejudice in places but, The black populace does nothing to help itself in many many situations. They scream "Racism" even where there isn't any. They commit crimes then scream "injustice" when they are punished for it. While racism is a horrible thing that needs to be completely wiped out, Black America and Black Britain needs to smarten up and try to help itself instead of sitting back and complaining.

I agree with you that some people just pull out the racist card at every opportunity! It is human nature that, when sources are scarce people will kill or loot for food or basics - it is just basic survival! If and when people are subjugated or oppressed, or when they are discriminated against, they will take the options available to them. That may mean anything from demonstrating to looting! We can only express empathy from our own experience, where we would have suffered the same fate. Having said this, people act differently, suffering from the same circumstances. There will always be people who will make invalid claims like racism, where it did not exist, but then again - there will always be racism! we humans will always look for differences in others to reassure ourselves that we are better!

I cannot agree with feeling "Sympathy" For people in the US or Britain who loot. Both of these countries have welfare systems that supply the basics and then some. In an impoverished country where the poor are actually starving, I would have sympathy for them. I don't care who you are or what your circumstances are, Black or White. There is NO justification for you to steal from someone else. The fact that they stole from innocent people just makes it worse. Were they stealing food? necessities?... no , they were stealing whatever they could get their hands on just because they had the opportunity to do so. I don't know if you saw any videos of the looting but, There were a number of white people doing it too. Their excuse would be the same as the excuse for the blacks who were doing it... NONE! They wanted "Stuff" so took it. I do not believe it had anything to do with "Oppression" or "Subjugation" Not in the USA or in Britain. There are many around the world who are suffering from these things and lack the basics for survival, That is a whole different matter and I feel for them but in our countries where there IS prejudice, it is not only whites against blacks, it is blacks against whites, white on white, black on black, Asian on whoever... It is something that permeates the planet but. It is no excuse for our own personal behaviour. If everyone who has experienced prejudice took to breaking the law because of it, Where would we be?
