There seems to be a lot of this going on around SB in the last few years. No one culture is responsible, and as 228 pointed out, anyone who points out a particular ethnic group should be ashamed. If you're not ashamed, then you should be and just cut out the racism. Coexist and all.

Looks like 8 out of nine people prefer Methamphetamine over Cocaine.

Please ease up on the 'racist' commenters... there IS a problem, and looking away doesn't help. We can't talk about the problem if people are afraid to speak the obvious and be branded a close-minded hater. There is a difference between mindlessly disliking an entire people/culture and acknowledging that certain groups experience certain problems more frequently. I know some folks are truly just racist, but not all who point out the facts and express a desire for change should have the PC card thrown at them. We have to be able to talk about it if we want to solve it...

I don't believe some of the comments are comming from racist commenters as much as Edhatters trying to make Edhat look bad SNOT very nice man! Once you consider the source it's easier to discount the statements.
