Why does he have to be black?

Most of you won't understand, because this is a question African-Americans ask themselves whenever a high profile criminal case has a black suspect (i.e. Michael Vick). So, I'm sure lots of black people sighed and shook their heads over this article.

Antwon Tanner, more commonly known as Skills from The CW's "One Tree Hill," was arrested as the middle man in an identity theft ring in April in NYC. He comped to selling 19 Social Security cards (3 of which were fake) for over $10,000.

Stuff like this just makes me sad, just because you don't want to be a role model doesn't mean you aren't.

A true test of character is how you act when you think no one is watching. Well, Antwon, your character sucks. The only thing that could maybe redeem you in my book is if you were going to donate all of the money to a widow of five whose husband died in the war... I'll be waiting.
