As a matter of fact, what are the rest of you doing to help alleviate the problems that you so keenly point out as being such a serious issue? You know what they say, if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

Or would you rather just wait until the problem reaches your neighborhood so that you can cry..what's the word? Victim?
So someone who is beaten and robbed is not a victim?

what chalie is saying is talk is cheap.

if you really want to fix the problem, go out and do something about it.

posting all day online isnt going to do anything except make you look bad in the end, as it shows you arn't serious and are just bored wanting attention.

go out and deal with these youths.

fix the problem instead of sitting on the sideline, thats what chalie brown is saying.

That has been done for decades, ie. "the war on drugs", "the war on poverty". Liberals always want to chop the "root" of the problem, but that's only a racket and never works because those people need to want the change themselves. They must be willing to give up their ignorant mindset on their own, nobody else can do that for them.
The black community must show those thugs that they won't be placating to them anyone, they have destroyed those communities with crime and brought conflict with other groups. Stop babying the hoodlums, stop this "no snitching" nonsense, and turn the perps in. Everyone just needs to identify the problem and protect themselves too. A few "ah man, it's all good, just do communities service and give money" from posters like tropolis and Chalie Brown doesn't change the problem or help people.

That's for their own communities to fix. So get with it, didn't you say you were black? My way of fixing it is a bullet to the eye.

How do you deal with an entire flash mob? A gun wont cut it, there are probably several guns among the people in a flash mob. Grenades and automatic weapons are illegal so that wont cut it either.

So it's not your responsibility because your skin isn't black? Um, that's racist.

I chose not to have 6 kids with 4 different women and not be a dad to any of them.

I'm raising my sons to respect and treat everyone fairly, not steal and be honest. Between raising them alone, working etc. I don't have the kind of time to do serious mentoring but it is something I would be interested in down the road. However, trying to paint me as part of the problem is laughable...I'm taking care of my business.

I honestly don't give a crap about the skin color of the criminals involved here, it's moot. However, there has been a growing number of highprofile copycat actions like this and it's making the news. Chicago in particular had a bunch the last few months.
