Bingo. Which is why there has been so much historical effort to make it seem like what happened to blacks was to their Benefit. Many people like to suggest that blacks were better of in America than in Africa, which implies that what happened to blacks in America was not oppression, but actually an improvement.



Its all about trying to control how black people "feel" about what happened to them in America.

So don’t be so quick label this as racial.
In the video they say that the teens are NOT 13 or 14 years old as originally reported. They are now believed to be “older teens”.

We've been having race riots for years. Racial tensions have basically been a big part of America, sadly.

The article says 13 and 14. Which video are you referring to?

Police described the attackers as juveniles, both girls and boys ages 13 and 14, who were wearing black clothing.

I would say a lot more than "a bit", but I agree with you 100%.

It keeps coming back to this idea that blacks are being led to feel and think a certain way by others. Before you came up with SJW....you were saying that blacks were being led by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.



Let me hip you to something. BLack people are not following anybody. The only person who captivated black peoples attention recently has been Obama. That is over with. Aside from Obama, the only person that has pull with black males in the country is Farrakhan. For dam sure black people are not listening to white SJW.

I ..... agree with you! Seriously.

I doubt the mindless thugs in the video watch any news program. Not cable, national, or local. And they don't give a crap about limp-wristed, white liberals trying to make them better citizens- a fool's errand if there ever was one.

Nope. This is yet another example of Nihilism, pure and simple. Violence for the sake of violence. It's not Jackson or Sharpton's fault. It's on the morons who pumped these kids out and then did NOTHING to raise them correctly. And bigoted fools like you who cheer this kind of thing on.

Let me ask you something, Indentured Servant: Is anyone in your community man enough to fight one on one? Seems incidents always feature either a group of blacks pounding on one or two people completely out of their league or whipping the 9 millimeters out and blasting away.

Low IQ cowards, all of them.

Pretty pathetic that people would politicize something like this, some people have no shame. In case you didn't know violent attacks occur everyday in this world that has nothing to do with politics. Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Hillary Clinton and no other "leftist" had anything to do with this attack, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Please give some of what your smoking that has you thinking that a race war will start, or on the other hand maybe you are want one to start!!

If you disrespect the wrong people, you might end up with a broken nose, and the guy who broke it will pay the price. Its just the way the cookie crumbles. Most people know this, and try to be respectful.

Pulling the race card and playing the victim and/or playing partisan politics over something like this is childish, but that's what the OP has chosen to do.
You've lost ALL credibility with this.

So you're saying the pregnant woman standing on the el in Chicago who said/did nothing to anyone and was punched in the face - maybe she wasn't attractive enough.

The guy who was asked for a cigarette and said he didn't smoke, and was then beaten - well, I guess the reason is - he didn't have a smoke.

The guy who was told to hand over everything he had, and did, and was then knocked on his behind where he was kicked repeatedly - maybe he didn't hand it over fast enough.

The woman who was told to give up her phone, later to be sexually assaulted by the guy who took it, I guess she should have had a more recent model or something.

This kind of thing happens multiple times every day in Chicago.

You are bat **** crazy to state there's always a reason.

OP's feeble attempt to link this event to any political ideology is ridiculous and embarrassing.
