    Statistically speaking:

    -blacks make up only 13.6% of the U.S. population, we account for 50.3% of all diagnosed cases of HIV
    -The racial composition of the US prison and jail population as of 2008 was 60.21% African Americans
    -According to recent US Census Bureau data,“24.7% of all African-American live in poverty in comparison to 8.6% of all non-Hispanic White, 11.8% of all Asian-American and 23.2% of all Hispanic.”

    These are just a few examples of what's ignored.

    Why did I have to be black? Why did I have to be grouped with such intolerable people? Everybody's first impression of me is that I'm loud funny and stupid, why me?

    maybe because you have a small ****.

    if you were like the other black people, none of the other stuff would matter.
