If crime were about being poor, then EVERYBODY would have been looting in the Depression years. It is about culture; a sub-culture that teaches that The Man has stolen things from you, so it is OK to steal things back.

As a Great American, Willie Cunningham, points out...it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with bankrupt culture. Once, black music gave us R&B, Gospel, Blues and Rock. Today, if you asked someone to give you an example of "black music" they would probably say "Rap". You do the math.

Wow, you have a chip on your shoulder. I take it you're a fan of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Madonna? Aren't they paragons of "white" music? If you're going to accuse 40 million black Americans of having a "bankrupt culture" maybe you should pause a moment for some self-reflection.

Yes, you got it. All 40 million American blacks thinks it's ok to steal and that's what "black culture" says. What rock did you crawl out from under?

I'd mention Robert Randolph, a Christian rocker who also happens to be one of the best living guitarists.
