Your agenda is to downplay anything that shows blacks in a bad light.

You couldnt even reply to my first statement about "should we complain about the white victim" because you cant.

Your reply about the video being boring spotlighted your agenda even further. Oh yeah you can come in here and reply later thats not what you were referring to but we know better dont we?
With that kind of imagination, you ought to write a book.

For the last. time. I was not calling the video itself boring. Obviously, no one should be complaining about the victim.

Honestly, I'm done with this conversation, because you're just going to assign whatever twisted meaning you want to my posts instead of reading/replying to what's actually there. Good day, sir.

He should have ignored the guy and kept walking while getting ready to defend himself. When I see a group of young blacks hanging around, I'm on guard but then again, I grew up in a majority black community. My son is attending university in the South and doesn't go anywhere (except school and places where weapons are illegal) without his gun and knife.

Maybe some white guys kicking an unconscious black man in the head would be less boring to you? Then you could call a march and protest racism.

So I guess I deserve to be stereotyped because I'm black, despite the fact that I went to college, have a white collar job, dress appropriately, am not loud, boisterous and vulgure, have well-mannered kids...

Any adult should be able to distinguish a black man vs a black thug.

Why should you be nervous simply because I'm next to you in the store with my black kids?

You'd think so. People here have a lot of growing to do.

I totally agree! Their color is irrelevant! What is relevant is that the perps are nothing but f***n' cowards, and I GOD-DAMNED-GUARANTEE that if this s*** happened to my kid, they had better pray that the cops would find them before I do! I tend to be of the school of thought that violence should always be a last resort, however; even I have my limits! Screw with me, or my family with the intention of causing serious physical harm, and it's on like Donkey Kong! Sadly, I feel sooner or later if this s*** keeps happening where people cannot conduct themselves in a civilized manner, people are going to start taking matters in their own hands! It drives me crazy when I hear stories of this happening to innocent folks just trying to go about their lives!


BTW I live in the Cleveland area, and I missed this story.

The point is that black youths such as these are obviously not going to change their violent attitudes unless the message comes from people they trust and respect, and that's not going to be anyone who is not black.
Comparing this again to the Kentucky couple and their 10 kids living in a stick hut, do you believe that the opinion of a suburban vegetarian mom would have any effect on them? We share the same skin color. Our states are next door to one another. Should I assume they look up to people like me and want to emulate me, and if they don't, should I try harder?

Back to your answer, I agree that leadership should come from people who are trusted and respected. I hope you are not one of the posters who complain so vigorously about Black History Month.

Can you give some tips on distinguishing a black man vs a black thug ? Clothes, more than two together, anyone under age 30, gut feeling ?
