This is exactly why Democrats gets so much push back on Gun Control. If you see these things happen too many times, you start to think, i need to carry a gun!

If you go into a high crime area.....crime happens to people. You should not have some sort of false expectation that your color should somehow be a shield that protects you from what others are experiencing. Again.....sounds like the expectation of white privilege.
Great theory! Unfortunately, these cockroaches aren't limiting their criminal activities to high crime areas. They're bringing it to wealthy areas. And you know that, but once again you need to find a way to blame whitey for getting his ass beaten.

Racism at its finest.

The audacity of you to compare a water balloon fight to a gang of jackarses beating down an innocent man at his hotel, speaks volumes about your disgusting racism that you continue to get away with spouting on this forum.

It does not matter. If the incident of crime is high among black youth......as long as black youth remain segregated to "ghettos" people who do not live in ghettos have little to worry about until or unless the people from these areas venture into non ghetto areas. In other words, if people have a propensity to throw water balloons, those in closest proximity tend to be the victims. The color of the victims will most likely be determined by the color that is in the proximity......again....UNLESS there is this unstated expectation that a certain color should be exempt from those who engage in throwing water balloons.


I mean....if 20 blacks are getting shot each day in Chicago by other blacks......what makes you think a white person getting shot in Chicago by blacks is racially motivated? That is the point I am trying to make with the balloons. It's an analogy to reduce emotions from the argument. A water balloon fight should not invoke emotions that distort logic.

So you're saying non-blacks should profile and stay out of black neighborhoods and move to the other side of the street if they see groups of black youth?

You're purposely being obtuse. FEW white people go into the ghettos in Chicago, yet many white people are victims of black on white crime. Why? Because crime is not contained in ghettos.

Don't come back and talk about profiling when someone suggests they avoid black males.

[From the linked article:]

Quote:
“Kennedy Park is a large common space in the middle of some of the poorest census tracts in the Northeast,” Mayor Bouchard said. “When you have large, diverse groups of people in the same place you are bound to have incidents. Lewiston is no different in that respect than any other medium to large city, except that Lewiston’s violent crime rate is one of the lowest in Maine.”
So there you have it: diversity leads to increased crime.
