His remarks were just as silly as the karma remark.

That's all I was saying.

I never said who leads in the race, I said white kids do it too.

2 wrongs don't make it right.

That's like saying a "white lie" is not as bad as a "lie".



Same damn thing.

I know that, but you can't compare two problems that are on a massively different scale. By saying "oh white kids do this too" you're essentially saying that the two are equal sized problems when they're clearly not.

I know black kids do this at a much larger rate than white kids.

In that post, I was simply saying, yes, I agree, white kids do it also.

Oh okay. Not trying to pick an argument or anything, that's just an attitude I hear often. Not from you, just in general. The guy you were responding to was obviously (in my opinion) trying to downplay this instance.

Yes, he was trying to downplay it........

That, I don't agree with.

My remark was just that a remark.

I'd be lying to myself if I thought it was equal between black kids and white kids. I refuse to be that foolish.

Saying "oh they do it too" is a very weak argument. That's not the direction I was going in.

It's all good. That being said though if you split it up it by economic class he just might have a point.

It's not about poverty either. You never see the impoverished, those living on shelters or poor rural communities doing senseless violence all over the country like they do.

These criminals are nothing but well fed, spoiled hoodlums living off a parent or the government. They could care less about education and hard work. Instead spending their money on gear, the latest iPhones, cellphones, and HD video cameras so they can organize and record their vicious attacks and post them online. Now some people want us to feel more sorry for then and not for the victims, and stop talking about it because it makes these scum look "bad".

These mobs basically attack anyone, whoever isn't black and minding their own business. They will punch, stomp on, stab and kill them.


Minneapolis mother and daughter attacked by 'teen' mob
A mother, teen and 4 year old girl viciously attacked in Minneapolis. The youngest girl suffered a head contusion.


They attack Asians and Hispanics as frequently as they do whites. To them its basically, "screw however isn't black", they will victimize them in whatever horrendous way they can.

I don't get why the cops aren't doing jack **** about this. A bunch of college kids celebrating a sports victory in the streets gets this treatment. Literally sending in the cavalry:

Yet a group of 200 dangerous individuals going around actually attacking people doesn't even get a canister of teargas?

Just what the hell do they think they're doing? They're called law ENFORCEMENT officers.
