Pretty apparent the OP thinks it's important because it's a chance to talk about a less than perfect black man.
Yeah... just like all the "one hateful, ignorant individual" stories that would be flooding the news feeds had this guy been white and commenting about how he doesn't want blacks in his "hood" and shooting at them. How do you think that would have been handled in the news? Do you think it would have been pitched as white racism or one hateful, ignorant individual?

It's funny (actually not funny at all, more like blinded by ideology) the way you guys don't see whites with racist tendencies as lone-wolf individuals and you do see blacks with racist tendencies as lone-wolf individuals. Why is that? A white racist is an indicator of a larger racial issue. A black racist is just a misguided individual. And of course, you don't see the double standard there, do you?

True, but I'll give you points for using the phrase, 'boy howdy' since it's one I use myself.

Coverage from CNN, MSNBC, CBS, etc: crickets.
I'm shocked.

I don't suffer one bit from black racism. I suppose it could happen, but the fact that it never has is indicative of something. Blacks who I know personally, have and continue to suffer from white racism. Do you deny this?

All racists, black white yellow or red are bad. Period.

I'm pro Trump and pro black, pro gay, pro everyone as long as they are moving forward in a positive way that benefits society and America. What I and most other sane people are not for is some thug shooting a gun at innocent people in an act that is pure racism.

I repped TKO for at least acknowledging information that conflicted with his/her opinion. All too often around here we see people making great points in an argument only to be completely ignored. I give props to people who stay in the game and are willing to admit when new information changes their perception.

Ps: I’ve loved “boy howdy” ever since my favorite 49er Ronnie Lott used it.

Cheers to a good old southern phrase! And the fact that Creem magazine used it when I was a wanna be rocker as a kid.

I suspect that outside the confines of this divisive environment we'd probably have more in common than not.

HA! I found the classic hilarious “commercial” of Ronnie Lott using “boy howdy”. Still hilarious.
