I knew an American negro one time who was constantly worrying about
his younger brother stealing from him. Since they both moved into
the same apartment, he had to give his younger brother a key. Lo
and behold, he came to work one day all peed off because his brother
had stolen his VCR, camcorder, and a few other things.
I get the impression that for some reason blacks think that if you
don't get caught, stealing is not only OK but it's a way of life
much like it was a way of life for indians to steal horses from
neighboring tribes. To them, horse thievery was almost like a rite
of passage into manhood I suppose.
In all fairness whites have been known to steal too, but I don't
recall ever hearing of any of my white friends being ripped off by
their own brothers or sisters.
The difference is that of core moral values I suppose.
