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.
More than likely, it was because the White guy was in the middle of the fight. If the roles were reversed, an SJW might say because it was the victim(s) were Black.

Depends on the age and circumstance. If it was a group of adult black couples, I would not even give them a second glance, nor would they me.


If I saw a large group of teen blacks approaching me on a city street, you can bet I would have my hand on my .40 cal Sig in my breast pocket. I would first attempt to cross the street to avoid conflict; if followed and aggressively pursued, I would pull the piece.


Which kind of animal would you avoid? A kitten or a rattlesnake? Why?

The other reason for the push back is that the Dems want to take guns away from law abiding gun owners first... IMO they need to take away guns out of the hands of the criminal element first.

And I think this way... even though I am not even a gun owner!

Hope they find the perps.

And it doesn’t look like all of the perps are black either. So not sure why that’s the only focus...

Also, something happened prior to this. You can tell in the beginning of the video, the first perp seems to ask if that is the man? Gets confirmation and hits him. Then a bunch of young people run up after, guys and girls. Yes, it’s wrong but I wonder what the story is behind this.

In the reverse case its usually that the water balloon fight did not get started until the black person showed up.

Except that is not what happened. At. All.

The two hotel guests were walking through the lot into their hotel entrance. The attackers followed them TO the hotel entrance where they beat and stomped on one and beat the second one when he tried to intervene. It wouldn’t kill you to acknowledge the truth in this situation.

Deflection fail.

Yes, because the LEFTIST Media hides the truth. They are scum.

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

I have a dissonance between two popular points of view held by people such as yourself. On one hand people like you seem to suggest that blacks are prone to criminality and violence. Then on the other hand you are saying that when whites are victims of crime at the hands of blacks, then its because they were white. That is contradictory to me. Help me out. If blacks are prone to violence....then its not about the color of the victims....but rather, the color of the perpetrator. Right? If a person is violent its about proximity and not color. Whatever race that person is around will become victims....right? That certainly would explain why nearly all races commit a higher percentage of their violence against people of their own race. That is because the races tend to be around people of their own race more.....right?



I mean...if people like you are thinking that blacks are violent.....then why would you NOT expect them to be violent in an environment where whites are? Why does black violence towards white then become "hate crimes"? Why would the motive be anything different than when it was taking place in the proximity of other blacks and hence upon other blacks? It's only when one has the expectation being being exempt from what others are experiencing, because of their color, that leads to the term "white privilege". You have the expectation that despite black on black crime ravaging the black community (according to people like you)......no black should commit a crime against whites. You know that is how it used to be right? Laws and treatment were such that if a black commit a crime against a white person the punishment would be MUCH WORSE than had the black person did the same to another black person.
