Are whites shot when they do the same thing the alleged blacks did (outside of the BB gun incident)? Yes, but not nearly as common as a black person does the same thing. The poster who says it is a reminder of America's past is mostly true too. Whites with power discriminating and keeping the black man down. Black on black crime is kind of like white on white crime. There is little cause celeb for that outside of the personalities involved in the crimes.

Which only reinforces my point. The 5% unemployment rate advertised by this administration is a sham! Most are likely minimum wage, part time, or a result of people who have fallen out of the work force and aren't counted any longer. Sure, 100K or more jobs are created each month, but who wants to work in any of them if they are fast food jobs or unskilled labor that pays low wages? Smoke and mirrors.

How true ! The same goes for Baltimore's State Attorney and our governor.

Yeah. I'm 53. It was a beautiful city - I'd love for it to remain that way. I really love that area.

I'm Black and grew up in Flint, Michigan, the MOMENT I got some money I got the hell out of there. I now stay in a nice Suburb area called Clinton Township, MI which is excellent.

The fact of the matter is that most of the time if you have a majority BLACK area, the area is going to have poor schools, a poor economy, poor neighborhoods, single mothers everywhere, no fathers in the households, kids out of control, ghetto behavior, thugs, Tyqueshia, DeShawn, etc., etc.

Do yourself a favor, if you are a decent minded person with goals to be Middle Class and higher, get the HELL out of any area that's majority Black. You have been warned.

In terms of the current climate, it's all a Liberal Agenda and bias to attack "productive people" and turn this country into a Center Left pile of crap. Even as a Middle Class Black Man, I'm called Uncle Tom, Coon, Sell-out, etc. all because I LEFT THE GHETTO. I apparently "speak like I'm white" and I'm apparently "white-washed".

The reason they march when white people kill blacks is because it helps push a NARRATIVE. The narrative they are looking to push is that productive people (white people) are all bad and we (the ghetto people) have been oppressed by them, as a result, THEY should give US some (insert here whatever goody you can think of like free education, healthcare, money, housing, etc).

These people care NOTHING about a damn Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, Mike Brown, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, etc. They can care LESS about these people. They pick and choose cases to be "outraged" about to help PUSH their foundational change of America from a Center Right country to a Center Left one.

That's why you will NEVER see outrage over black on black crime, those cases don't fit the narrative they are trying to push.

It's similar to an Animal Rights group, they will only be outraged over cases that involve the beating or unjustly killing of an Animal.

Baltimore was really a good city especially to raise children in. Now look at it. I don't think people who live in Baltimore now know what raising children means; they just have children.

I've seen several threads about the decline of what were once wonderful American cities. Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Newark, Camden etc. Here is the question. If you had to name the single common denominator that caused these cities decay, what would your answer be?

Chicago was never a wonderful city in terms of : safety, politics, race-relations, or public education.

Anyway, I'm sure most of these killings are drug-related. Move on much?
Probably because it's easier to lump an entire race together than to judge an individual.

It's also easier to spend time pointing the finger, ranting and raving "why o WHYYY won't the [blankety- blank] race act right". It acts as a disguise to the fact that there are probably three fingers pointing at them that they don't want to acknowledge or address.

This why o why bulls*it I constantly see in this section - "why does the black community steal/riot/murder" (I have no idea btw, I just take care of my home and get up and go to work everyday)

I equate these odd inquiries to me walking up to some random white person and demanding that they answer WHY O WHY JEFFREY DAHMER, THE OKLAHAMA CITY BOMBER, THE ROOF BOY, THE SHOOT 'EM UP IN THE MOVIE THEATER GUY, etc.....AND I WANT THE ANSWERS NAOOOOOOOO

idiots
