It's not so much the existence of this thread. Trust me, there are people who aren't happy about such behavior. It is more "Black people are criminals", and the other constant complaints about Blacks that many people have an issue with. What good is it doing? What problems is it solving? Probably one of the largest shares of threads have to do with Black people. And all it does is bring histrionics. Nothing gets solved. If this is such a concern, then what actions are the persons constantly complaining about Blacks going to take, besides complaining?

oh, they're not 'happy' about such behavior. my, such strong disapproval

it's too bad they're exponentially less happy when these horrific incidents are exposed than they are about the incidents themselves. I don't see anyone saying 'black people are criminals' so you can take that tired strawman back home with you.

So which is worse to you, the actions 3 thugs took by kicking an unconscious man in the head like playing kick the can with his head and jumping on his chest like a trampoline Or someone posting mean things like you are saying the OP did? Cause it seems to me like you are having a big problem with posts, but not so much on the actions that nearly killed that young man.

And the constant complaining about Blacks doesn't help either. Whenever stories about crime have to do with Blacks, it gets discussed in a racial perspective more than anything else. If said persons really believe group beatings by thugs are horrible, then the beating would get discussed, not the race of the persons doing it.

If there are those who believe that Black people are that much of a problem, what do said persons intend to do about it? What else can said persons do besides complain?
