I hear you. The racial issue goes both ways. Yes there are whites that look down on blacks and then there are blacks that through their own choices deserve the reputation they have. The gangs, drugs and murders are at epidemic levels especially in the large inner cities. Vermont has less than a 2 percent black population but especially in Burlington when you see the evening news on a drug bust or murder the suspects race can more often be predicted than not. Don't get me wrong there are a lot of really good hard working people of color here in the Green Mountain State but the criminal element often slides up here from NYC or Boston to work their crime careers. I think they believe our cops are all Barney Fifes.
