A black person is:
A person who is of African-American descent.

A black person is NOT:
Someone who is lacking in manners, steals things, or is less than intelligent.

Black people do not have black skin. Some do not even have dark skin. As long as a person is of African-American descent (such as half British, half African-American), he or she is black.
I am black, and I do not cheat, steal or use the phrase "What up, dog?" unless I am talking to an actual dog.

Black people are generally nice (at least, the ones I know are).

A potentially great people who have a lot of problems that need to be addressed. Quite rightly they feel a great injustice has been done to them in the past, but this tends to negate any ability they might have to look upon themselves self critically…thus perpetuating a cycle of crime and underachievement.
Historically black people have suffered a lot at the hands of others, but for how long can they keep blaming the past for their problems?

25% are nice and want to be educated, the other 75% are ignorant, and get offended when being called nigga. Then they beat up other racists for no reason and take their shit. they always go in groups to jump people because they are pussies who can't fight one on one
a group of Black people: yo lets jump that guy for no reason
other black guy: yeah! he got a pretzel.
non black guy walking down the street: oh shit!
"gets beat up"

I feel slightly bad for saying this, knowing all of the great black people whom I know, and having an understanding of the great accomplishments of the black race, but the younger generations of African Americans are steadily becoming more ignorant and racist. Fewer black children have dreams to do great things after the turn 12. From 12 on they just want to be gangsters and turn to racism towards whites and minorities besides themselves to make themselves feel better about their stupidity. There are no longer kids like Ben Carson or Richard Wright. Nowadays black kids want to be like 50 cent or some stupid rapper with no education. Black kids are now contradicting everything that the Civil Rights movement was for. It was not meant to simply make black people better than everyone else. The purpose of the Movement was to promote peace and equality. It was supposed to allow blacks, whites, and all other races to get along. Now young blacks are almost as racist as the whites were to their grandparents. Every day of elementary school I heard black kids making racially offensive comments towards whites or non black minorities. They think it's ok to be racist towards non blacks but if in response a white person calls them a nigger in response to their previous statement they freak out yelling "DID YOU HEAR WHAT THIS WHITE ASS CRACKA MOFUCKA JUST SAID! THIS CRACKA IS A RACIST!" It is sad to see how blacks are now given the chance to achieve greater education, yet so few of them try to achieve it. They think the way to succeed is to try to be a gangster even though they are all just soft little kids. I know there are exceptions and that there are many great, respectable, educated black people out there, but this is what you will see on a daily basis. It's sad.
Person 1: Why'd that little kid just call us "cracka mofuckas? We didn't even say anyhting to him?

Person 2: Oh, dont worry. He's a black person.

One of the most hypocritcal races on our planet. They like to walk around in large groups, calling each other a long list of racial slurs(usually consisting of Nigga, Nig, Dog, or some form of the three). But as soon as somebody with less pigment in their skin comes along and says anything remotely close to what they seem to like to call themselves, they get their cousins, brothers(or "bruthas"), sisters(sistahs), aunty, uncle, pops, momma, and other fellow blacks to all lend a hand in jumping the poor one who slipped up and said something even the slightest bit out of line.
Blacky#1: Yo nigga, what's goin' down...
Blacky#2: Nuthin' much nigga, you see that fine hoe ova' thur'?
Whitey/Yellowy/Reddy: Hey nig', that's my girl you're talkin' about!
Blacky#1(Or 2): Whut da' fug did you just say bitch?
Blacky#2(Or 1, depending on who had previously spoken): You racist fuck! Let's get'um!

***As if by magic, the entire black people family, plus friends appears out of thin air and jumps the White/Yellow/Red skinned person.***

Have a chip on there shoulder, never say thanks or please, and are usually rude. Sometimes like to wear hats incorrectly.
You'll find examples of this (black people) pretty much everywhere, however places such as Gyms, Restaurants and most Public Areas are most vunerable.
