We here at Stuff Black People Don't Like encourage debate and yet, and for this reason we have allowed for people to post anonymous comments under each post.
Each comment is edited to ensure that it passes our strict guidelines set forth by the wonderful example of Serena Williams at the US Open in 2009, but sometimes we do allow a comment to slip through that might have warranted being deleted.
Take this comment for example, in regards to the Labor Day 2009 post:
"chinny said...The person who made this comment is unable to process two things: Hate Facts and more importantly, falls into a main SBPDL... Jokes at Their Expense.
you are a mean spirited bitter racist, i think what upsets you is not so much obama's policies but the fact that he is black and he's your president and you are simply finding that too difficult to deal with, well tough! theres nothing you can do about it so if you dont like it move to iceland!!!!!!
as for your nasty snide covert racist comments they are worth absolutely nothing, go somewhere else and peddle your xenophobic rantings.
if you had to put up with even 1/4 of what blacks in the US have to deal with on a daily basis you would have committed suicide, which come to think of it might not be a bad thing."
By our friendly commentator, one would image that Black people have it horribly in this country, which we know is a lie. Perhaps in Pre-Obama America the world was tougher, but Black people have long been the beneficiaries of the Federal Government and tax dollars.
Interestingly, if Blacks have it so bad, one would surmise logically, that they have a high suicide rate. Black people do have a high homicide and murder rate of Black on Black people, but the suicide rate is something different:
Interestingly, it is elderly white males who have the highest rates of suicide in the country, which leads credence to SBPDL's theory that white people long for a return to Pre-Obama America and realize the daunting nature of that task:
"African Americans are far less likely to kill themselves than whites.
Less than one in 10,000 black men commit suicide, about half the rate of white men.
Whereas white men are at highest risk in old age, black men have the highest rates in their early 20s.
Experts have difficulty explaining the difference. Some researchers suggest ties to church and social supports may be "protective factors" for blacks.
The Rev. Robert Moore Jr., pastor of Glenville Seventh-day Adventist Church in Cleveland, said suicide is taboo in the black community.
"For black folks, that's not an option for us," Moore said. He added that blacks also tend to be resilient in the wake of hard times."We always think things are going to get better. We're always looking for a brighter day and we think it's right around the corner, if we just keep pressing on."
"...He was also one of a group associated with a substantially higher risk of suicide than any other—older white males. While suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in the United States, with 11 suicide deaths per 100,000 Americans, white men over the age of 65 commit suicide at almost triple that overall rate.3 These men are also eight times more likely to kill themselves than are women of the same age group, and have almost twice the rate of all other groups of male contemporaries."
SBPDL was started to educate the world about Black people. It is becoming a cultural phenomenon now, as our hits our up and our influence is growing.
We can only thank Black people for the continued shining examples they provide of Stuff Black People Don't Like on a daily basis.
Two posts will be coming today and yes, the first podcast is nearing completion. We also will be unveiling a YouTube channel soon, so be prepared for the SBPDL blitz.
Until then, enjoy the website. We have over 100 unique posts that add to the growing tapestry of SBPDL. Comment all you like, but remember that we do edit.
