"Planet of the Apes"? Do you even think before hitting "submit reply"?

Some only want to see them dribbling, throwing or catching a ball from the comfort of their living room. Some don't want them next door......or in the same town, for that matter.

Twelve percent of the population, actually more like 6% of the population is responsible for 50% of this country's murders and it's not a nationwide problem? Interesting.

Yes, primitive, barbaric behavior is what I was getting at. It was in no way a racial slur as I'm sure you twisted it to mean.

Please, first learn about the causes of these murders, will ya? How about for the first time in your life you think outside the confines of your normal "black and white" world....and contemplate some of those "shades of gray"? Could you do that, for us?

The cause of the murders?

Well according to the left - the cause is the evil guns that were used to commit the murders.

Wasn't that their reaction after Newtown? Ban the guns - not let's try to figure out what made Lanza tick.

See it is real simple - ban guns and murder will miraculously stop - because no ones strangles, stabs, or bludgeons anyone to death.

No, your conscious mind was thinking barbaric/primitive behavior, but your unconscious mind holds the keys to its real meaning. And even if i'm wrong.....are you not bright enough to know that what you said could be construed as hurtful, by the very history pertaining to the words you used to describe those individuals? Please think, first. That's all I ask.

Some Blacks or all blacks? You know there is a bad element in every race, right?

Planet of the apes is an...unfortunate analogy my friend.

I've established your ignorance ad nauseum. "The cause" isn't a singular cause. Your failure to grasp complex issues are very telling.
