Again, should the media report every fatality in a war zone--which is virtually what some of these neighborhoods are--and make it on par with every mass shooting of ordinary Americans who are not gang members? You continue to insist they are one in the same.

They are not. If I choose to walk through a gang infested neighborhood, I am knowingly putting my life at risk. If I take my kids to Walmart to do back to school shopping, I am not. Or I shouldn't be, though these days that's not true anymore either.

But hey, keep pretending they are exactly the same thing.

And keep pretending you have no agenda here.

No one buys it.

Angry young white men are murdering innocent people all over this nation. Stop trying to spin the conversation.

‘A lot of nights end up this way’: 7 shot in Lawndale’s Douglas Park

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...rzi-story.html

They were three women, ages 19, 22 and 25, and four men, ages 20, 21, 21 and 23. One of the 21-year-old men was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to his groin, police said.



Seven shootings reported this weekend in Baltimore amid ceasefire call

I think it's obvious to everyone save for one or two what this thread is all about. I'm shocked that a very public person -- a real estate agent -- would run out a thread like this in light of yesterday. To be that tone deaf and/or to have that much weird, deep-seated hate somewhere in there is something that I can't explain, but this is much more becoming of someone who just creates an account and has 2 or 3 posts under their belt.

What are you doing, Rakin?

And angry young black men are murdering exponentially more people all over this nation compared to "white nationalists" based on the statistics. So what is your point?

So let's be clear....you are trying to get the focus off of the MANY horrific nationwide mass shootings committed by white nationalist domestic terrorists against innocent people by equating it with murders in the "inner city" amongst known associates.


Stop deflecting.

261 murders in Detroit in 2018.

309 murders in Baltimore in 2018.

561 murders in Chicago in 2018.


Where is the media outrage?

Yes, let's be clear. Statistically speaking, young angry black men across the nation are murdering exponentially more people than "white nationalists" are on an annual basis. So where is your outrage given those factual statistics? Where is the media outrage given those factual statistics?

Stop deflecting.
