You have a tendency to hop in certain conversations when you feel a certain way. Those comments didn't include "Shariff" therefore i just lurk. I didn't "dance" around the topic nor move the "goalposts". How about you rinse & repeat your thoughts?

Exactly.

Re-read (and watch) post #45. Do you feel that is a problem that needs addressing?

I didn't shift anything. I don't understand why I'm supposed to make any comments about videos from Baltimore, or what that has to do with racism in southern Mississippi.

OP asked about black on white racism in South Mississippi. My response essentially says "it doesn't exist," which remains my point. Through 6 pages of replies you guys have failed to address that topic. Showing video of high schoolers in Baltimore doesn't change my stance one iota.

Several people jumped into this thread who seemed to have an agenda to discuss black on white crime (which op didn't ask about). Y'all feel free to have that conversation without me.

Apparently having an opinion and asking a question means having an "attitude".

You are the closed minded one for sure. Great job there.

No, because sometimes the problems come to you.

Does anyone go LOOKING to get shot? Do they look to have their property vandalized? Do they look to be a victim of any crime?

Nope not usually.

This is why I ask - because like it or not, blacks just like any other race have the tendency to be racially motivated.

Why some folks here can't seem to understand this stupidly simple proposition is immensely worrying.

It's a problem that been addressed countless of times.
The implications of discriminationary malice behind these attacks is questionable. The videos presented only displayed 1 out 4 that is bigotry. 3 out of 5 videos on Bmore harbor attack.

Been thinking about a move to coastal MS and then read about the death of a cop 3 months ago and some of the anti-white comments were just flooring.
Where did you read or hear these "anti-white" comments?

What's equally worrying are some MS residents wearing Alabama shirts all day long. You have 3 colleges there. What's wrong with Old MS, MS State, or Southern Miss? Nope, it's all about that Auburn/Alabama game when the guy in MS wearing the shirt has never been to AL, has no family in AL, and doesn't even know anyone in AL. Why the need to feel so insecure? I don't get it.
