Are you referring to the crime from four years ago? If so, that *might* be why it did not gain much traction.

I think you are focusing on the wrong thing. Rather than worry about how often it is reported in the news you should be concerned with WHY despite blacks making up 25.5% of NYC population, they are arrested in 54% of murders, 55% of thefts and 49% of assaults.

Hundreds protest Washington police shooting of 2 unarmed men

Please read a little bit more into the story. When the cop chased them they assaulted him with their skateboards - sorry but these are worst than being hit with a baseball bat.

And "two hard working teens" should have been taught you don't go around stealing beer, throwing the case at the employee, run from the police and then assaulting him.

Those two were actually in their 20's. Someone stated the wrong information early on and everyone followed along.

Obviously it is wrong to blame all blacks or even any not involved, but such crimes happen regularly.

I feel sorry for the middle class blacks who are good citizens. They suffer the social backlash of these incidents.

but when Black crime is reported on more than their actual representation population-wise, there's a problem. This was my point, and this board is a perfect representation of that. Tell me, was my response to the poster who said "the media protects Black people" correct, or incorrect?

I'm more worried about sentencing disparities between Black and White,to be honest here.

You don't need to feel sorry for us. The only people who'd hold stuff like this against us are racists like many of the posters here, who'd still hate us even if we were never involved in violent crimes.

I know some cool, educated AA folks and they are great. I have always believed class was a bigger issue that race and as I get old I become concrete in that conviction.

It is true that some elements of your community misbehave but I do not like people prejudging all of a community. Ditto with the Hispanic community who are often labelled as x or y by bigots.

If anything, he should feel bad for the bigots who come here and type essays about how bad Black people are and the changes "we" need to make, lol.

Their obsession is eating them alive and their personal lives are so boring that they have to come onto a website with complete strangers to rant about an entire group of people.
