    Have you ever been into the troubled neighborhoods to see if they are there? I've actually been there and stood beside Rev. Barber and prayed with him, and watched him talk about the positives and the negatives, what blacks should be doing and what they shouldn't be doing. So don't talk about what you don't know. You can never know a man by a 15 second news clip.

    A black man robbing one of the few black owned banks! For shame. M&F is an historical icon of black business acumen and prosperity....

    Not racist...just shows the fact that Al Sharpton and Rev. Barber would serve the community better if they went into the troubled neighborhoods and try to help them rise above crime.

    Why is it that it is ok to post news stories that read "White cop shoots black male" but in stories like this, they don't say "Raleigh M&F bank robbed by black male" ?????
