Please post the links to the newspaper stories covering these shootings. I would love to read them.

I've kissed many a white man "in the hood" outside in plain view and they've all gotten out unscathed.

Not everyone is racist but I'd say that the majority of humans are bigoted to some degree against others that are not exactly like themselves.

But my belief is simple, if a man and woman love one another, then why should anyone object? It's a private matter and people need to accept that they cannot control every aspect of others lives.

Moderator Removed - even misspelled -some words not allowed.

It's great to see racism and intolerance is still alive and well in today's society. I was afraid all those people were either dead or *gasp* had become tolerant.

Edit: @ Moderator: The word was purposely misspelled...it was making fun of how some Southern people would say the N-word. If you watch the Chappelle's Show skit about the black white-surpremacist, he says the word "na--" not "ni--" ... just letting you know I know how to spell haha

some of those comments have said it's reflective of st louis
it seems from comments i've read on here that some of the west coast big cities are the least racist in the country(perhaps the big 5-portland?)

Well, of course! I'm with you 100% on this one. I just couldn't get over all these hacks on here who act as if their hair had been blown back by the proverbial racial winds because of this incident.

Ok heres without the (supposed) racial words- . -Black men dont exactly welcome white men with open arms to date black women. I'm not interested to hear about racial incidents when it's only "news" if the racist is white person. When are people going to finally realize how racist all races are?

These "white people are so racist" threads get old, fast.

Whose preference do you think it was for some of them proms to be segregated? Answer that...and I'm guessing you will be wrong.

I think everyone is pretty in-tune that each ethnicity is considerably racist. But when people get upset publicly, it's your civic duty to make fun of them.

I am the op.
I meant the comments I've read on this forum (not on this thread) indicate that some of the major west coast cities at least may be the least racist
