Her decision was obviously not going to go over well.

The wife of an Arkansas jail administrator was arrested and charged with assault several days after police say she pulled a gun on four black teenagers who were going door to door to raise money for their high school football team.

Honestly, this does sound she could have been racially-motivated! However, I am wording in that way because what one person may see as a racist act might not actually be a racist act!

Did anyone notice the odd shift between the 1st paragraph and the others?

The 1st paragraph says "four black teenagers"

But the rest of the paragraphs state them as: "found the four children on the ground" and "The officer let the children stand up," and "two of the four children were wearing football jerseys."

Why the shift from "teens" to "children"?

Seems odd to me..

I love Roku. I was watching the newscast the other day. Obviously she screwed up big time. She was arrested. We have kids selling these things as well where i live. According to other people in the community the kids there fund raise often. She over reacted and gave ammunition to those who look to exploit racism as a political tool.

But many justify over-reaction because of black crime statistics and what they see on the news. They just don't see blacks in the news or in statistics. Those stats add up to 50%-90% black crime, depends on whose telling it. If there's four kids who just happen to be black, that means at least 2 or 3 of those 4 kids are criminals.


So, if 3 out of 4 are seen as criminals, none of us should be surprised that one the greatest challenges they will face throughout their lives is not being able to market themselves or what they are selling as trustworthy.

Crazy woman pulls gun, gets arrested, went to jail.

Newspaper takes the opportunity to turn it into a Whitey IS Racist event.

Remember, We are all racist now.

It clearly is an agenda. Media could find 10-1 happenings going on and write it up to demonstrate non-whites being racist against whites if they wanted to and weren't anti-white themselves. They bury it when it goes the other way.
