Nah, let's address *white on black* violence. That is, after all, what started these riots.

Murder people, suffocate them, break their spinal cords, kill their children (remember Trayvon Martin), only because there skin color is different from yours, and then think that they won't react violently. How's that working for you?

American Police too soft towards criminals, in other countries these rioters would be shot and killed before they incite even more rioters to join.

Police also fail to protect private businesses from rioters.

Our tax dollars at work.

Let's put these tax dollars to work to keep the criminals who wear blue, that are supposed to serve and protect, from murdering black people.

Of course, all cops are not criminals, but that's not the point of this thread. There are good people in every race, duh, but what caused the riots are the racist men in blue who are killing black people because they don't like their skin color.

No, what caused this riot are a bunch of thugs (the mayor's word, not mine) going around and looting to get free stuff instead of working for it, and burning and destroying stuff because they think it is fun to do. The actions going on have nothing, zero, zilch, to do with the police incident.

The police incident ignited it, but I agree with you.

The stupidity if these rioters never ceases to amaze me. If blacks want to change the way they are perceived they need to stop reacting in this manner. If people act like animals they are going to be treated like animals. All these riots do is breed more racism. If you have a problem with the cops, what does smashing windows, burning cars and looting liquor stores accomplish? Quit feeling entitled, quit acting like animals, try being civil useful members of society, try having some respect for the cities you live in.

Really? Let's think about this for a moment, Yakfish. Now, when this country experienced the riots over Trayvon Martin's murder, I watched the national news coverage and I saw some *gasp* WHITE people rioting. Are they animas, Yakfish? Or are they not simply because they are white?

I'm sitting at home, what do I have to do with this? The riots aren't breeding racism, there was racism before Blacks rioted and it will continue stop the BS LOL. People like you who stereotype, generalize, and make rude remarks breed racism.

For the Gazillionth time, no race is a monolithic group of people. It's not rocket science!
