With all the negativity surrounding the Baltimore riot, with many seeing it as a way for "thugs " and "hoodrats" to have an opportunity to loot, I think this would be a good article to help put the issue into context.

I would think electing a black, female, liberal, hyphenated surname , mayor would have solved Baltimore's problems.

Sadly, very few will address the topic at hand if this thread explodes. Expect to see alot subliminal racial slurs and Bad Blacky in here.

And the other side of that coin as well, excuses for all should be the chant... Ooops, was that a subliminal slur?

Not sure how accountability is seen as a slur, must be something new. Care to explain? However, I do think people stating the first thing I thought was those N's is a slur though.

A new Baltimore will not come of this. The old Baltimore will just die more quickly now.

That's all I see on this forum regarding race topics honestly. It's really sad just reading the comments, ruins my day in an instant.

I used to feel the same way as you, but when you realize how worthless alot of these people are who post this nonsense it doesn't phase you anymore. Heck, alot of them are old who post their bigoted crap anyway. They'll be dead within 10 years tops. I'm at the point where I could give a rat's ass what another man thinks of me (especially over the internet)

And then you have Superwoman1 aka Driller1 who creates multiple accounts to troll, she's funny.
