“Random” and “Bored”: New code words for black on white hate crimes

This is what happens.

This is not an aberration.

Two innocent white men viciously murdered by young black males in the span of less than a week.

It’s outrageous, horrifying, tragic, damned infuriating, but it isn’t shocking. It should be shocking, but it isn’t.

I’ll be honest, I’m pissed off. I’m disgusted. I’m sickened to my core. I have no interest in being nice or politically correct about this. If you want that, go somewhere else. I’m too tired for that. I’m tired of the cowards. I’m tired of the liars. I’m tired of the blood thirsty race pimps who do everything in their power to stir up hatred and animosity, and then fade into the night when the poison they spread claims another life. I’m tired of the violence and the chaos, and I’m even more tired of the people who close their eyes and pretend it isn’t happening. It is happening. And, statistically, most of it is at the hands of young black males. Does that upset you? It should. But you should be upset at the PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING IT, not the people who are talking about it.

Chris Lane, the young guy here from Australia on a baseball scholarship, was randomly shot in the back and killed at around 3pm last Friday. Two teenagers, James Edwards and Chauncey Luna, are charged with his murder. A third, Michael Jones, was charged as an accessory after the fact. Edwards and Luna are black, Lane was white. Jones is also white, which was a big relief to the progressive race hustlers who are desperate to keep up the facade that black on white violence is never, ever, ever motivated by racism. These folks will have to be very selective in their reading about this case (or simply stick to liberal media outlets, who will be even more selective in their reporting of the case) because the facts quite clearly prove at least one of the black killers to be a violent bigot. Let’s look at his own words. Here are two recent Tweets from James Edwards:

April 29th: “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.”

July 15th: “Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!:) lol shit ima keep sleepin shit! #ayeeee.”

“Wood” is a derogatory term for white people. So, need I point out the obvious? Need I speculate as to the global eruption that would have occurred if someone unearthed Tweets from George Zimmerman with little gems like “black people are nasty” and “knocked out 5 blacks today”? Need I explain how morally corrupt and spineless we are if we refuse to call a black teen “racist,” even after he expresses deep hatred for whites and then goes out and kills one in cold blood? Need I express how unbelievably dishonest and cowardly you are — you, personally — if you perpetuate this “blacks can’t be racist, even if they maim and murder white people” bull crap?

Oh, but never mind. These kids weren’t motivated by anything but “boredom,” we were told at first. Now we find out the “bored” teens were also gang members, and this random act of boredom also happened to be an initiation rite for the Crips. But words like “boredom” and “random” seem to be trotted out pretty frequently in these situations. Keep these terms in mind; they’re apparently police code for “black on white violence.”

An 89 year old WWII veteran was beaten to death in Washington on Wednesday night. He was walking through a parking lot when two black males descended upon him and killed him with their bare hands. Police are calling the attack “random.”

The six black teens who beat an Ohio man to death last year were also “bored,” according to police.

The gang of blacks who assaulted, stripped and robbed a white tourist in Baltimore last St. Patrick’s Day were just behaving “randomly,” which is why no hate crime charges were ever filed.

The Minnesota man who was savagely attacked and beaten to the point of brain damage by a group of young black males, was also, apparently, the victim of something “random,” something probably driven by boredom.

The 13 year old who was doused with gasoline and set on fire by two blacks in Missouri last year must have been the victim of something merely random, even while the assailants made random statements like, “this is what you get, white boy.”

A white guy was walking to his car in a parking lot in Memphis when a group of blacks came out of nowhere and shot him dead. The police are calling it a “failed robbery,” yet the young man was found with his wallet and phone still in his possession. Just another random thing, I guess.

I don’t know if the three black teenagers who brutalized a white child on a school bus in Florida two weeks ago were bored, but the father of one of the assailants told a reporter that, although his son is “sorry,” this is “just the way it is.”

It’s just the way it is.

They were bored.

It was random.

No conclusions can be drawn from any of this, right?

Sorry, wrong. A gang of black kids go after a white guy and we’re supposed to believe that the victim’s whiteness didn’t factor into the equation at all? An elderly white man is brutalized and left for dead by a couple of black men and we’re being asked to believe that such vicious hate and violence was visited upon him merely by chance? A black kid brags about knocking out white people, then goes out and shoots a white man in the back, and we’re expected to believe that he wasn’t targeted for being a member of the exact race that the murderer just publicly admitted to targeting for violence? And yet a half-white guy shoots a black teen who tackled and pummeled him, and THAT was entirely motivated by racism? Oprah makes up a story about poor customer service at a swanky purse shop in Switzerland and the media runs with the “racism” headline without hesitation, meanwhile a black guy can post online that he “hates white people” right before killing a white person, and the “R” Word is never mentioned?

Lord help us. We have descended into unadulterated lunacy.

I started this by saying that the killing of Chris Lane and the murder of the WWII veteran aren’t shocking. I’m not trying to diminish or dismiss the significance of these crimes at all. As I stated, I am horrified, sickened, saddened, enraged. But it isn’t shocking because it is also the clear result of particular and obvious factors — most directly, the actions of three despicable individuals. Yet look only a little deeper and you’ll see that those individuals were influenced by three essential ingredients: 1) A complete lack of parental guidance. 2) The evil and destructive “gangsta” culture perpetuated by rappers and other so-called “leaders” in the black community. 3) Hatred and racial animosity planted into the public conscience by certain very bad and very influential men and women.

70 percent of black fathers abandon their kids. The music industry stylizes and glorifies thuggishness and gangsterism. The President of the United States tells blacks that they are the victims of white oppression. Violence and turmoil are not side effects of these things, they are a logical result. Some people are clamoring for Obama to speak about the Chris Lane murder. Don’t hold your breath, folks; I suspect Obama finds Mr. Lane about as worthy of comment as the infants slaughtered by Kermit Gosnell.

But, personally, I don’t want to hear anything out of that man’s mouth, unless it’s an apology to the Lane family for his reckless and sinister exploitation of racial tensions.

That’s not going to happen, I know. Just as no amount of blood and death will convince many Americans to have a real conversation about the cultural factors that precipitate all of this. Instead, bodies will be buried and more lives destroyed, and the Powers that Be will remain silent, until they find a tragedy they can make something out of. Meanwhile, Chris Lane’s family and friends will mourn in silence, and the old man who fought for this country in WWII will be put in the ground, and Oprah will tell us more tales of the oppression she encounters in high end fashion stores. And nothing will change until we have the guts to be honest with each other.

  1. Any of y’all seen “The Butler?”

    Stop acting like frustration and anger from the black community comes from out of nowhere.

    • MW says:

      Oh, yes. The white man’s fault.

      Please enlighten me, because the last time I checked, the WWII vet who was killed FOUGHT AGAINST FACISM. You know, against those dictators that wanted to kill people based on race and religion? So, Ron, please enlighten me, because you make NO SENSE WHATSOEVER.

      P.S. Last time I also checked, many of the Blacks during the era of the Butler and behind didn’t participate in those kinds of acts. Believe me they could have. They could have retaliated and rioted if they FELT LIKE IT. Trust me. No. They did a peaceful protest.

      So, again. Enlighten us. I’ll sit here and wait for your answer.

      • MW says:

        *fascism.

      • MW says:

        *fascism.

      • LukeP says:

        Well, when that WWII vet was fighting the fascists, it was 20 years prior to blacks in the US having their voting rights protected. So, for 48 years the blacks in America have had their right to vote federally protected. That’s 10 elections. 10 presidential elections that the blacks could have their voice heard, while the whites in America invented the system and wrote the laws in the eighteenth century. Yeah, I don’t get it either… it’s such a mystery.

        Where do you people come from?

      • LukeP says:

        *12 elections

      • Denise says:

        Interesting post. Now that your anger at the black kids has exploded out of your system, then breakdoen the white kid or did you conveniently forget him

      • MW says:

        Luke, frankly, I have NO idea where you are coming from. Let’s read this again.

        Any of y’all seen “The Butler?”

        Stop acting like frustration and anger from the black community comes from out of nowhere.

        Seriously. I’m still waiting for the argument to be further refined, because it makes zero sense to me. They’re frustrated? Son, everyone is frustrated. How about my parents? They left TWO dictators. Two. I don’t see them taking their anger out at anyone. And they LIVED through the struggle.

        And Denise, seriously. I read your comment about six times. I have no idea what you are saying.

      • LukeP says:

        Did you just call me son?

        Daddy, Are you just confused by the adjective “frustrated” or are you denying entirely that black oppression in America exists? I haven’t seen the movie he referenced. However, Daddy, one could probably allude to any number of anicdotes between the late nineteenth century and the mid 1960′s to show black oppression.

        I’m not really sure how your parents being refugees is relevant to this black oppression in America, Daddy. (Does that make them my grandparents, daddy?) I think you’ve tried to make apples and apples out of apples and potatoes, Daddy.

      • MW says:

        How does frustration lead to these acts of violence, such as murder.

        Answer the question, son.

      • Lukep says:

        Daddy, you’re supposed to put question marks after questions.

        Also, daddy, The question is simple enough to answer, but it has been answered numerous times already on here. My guess is that you are denying an entire american history of black oppression, daddy. Pa pA and me me being refugees, while a great story, daddy, is not relevant to the generations and centuries of oppression the blacks in america experienced.

        I hope this helps in answering the question, daddy. My guess is not, though. Could you call me son again, daddy? It just makes you seem so…. Superior, daddy.

    • Barbara Yaple says:

      “Frustration and anger”? So—let me get this right; “frustration and anger” are punishable by beating an 88 year-old Veteran to death. Is that what you are saying? My fond wish is that one or two of those thugs comes upon an elderly person who rolls into a crouch and lays down some .45 cal. justice on those monsters.

      • LukeP says:

        No. That wasn’t what he was saying. Not at all.

      • MW says:

        Luke, you need to tell us what he’s saying, instead of telling us that we don’t understand it.

      • LukeP says:

        Sorry, Daddy. I know, you’re right. I will obey, daddy. I think, Daddy, that he is alluding to an historical example as interpreted in the medium of American movie film. If this seems to liberalized for your tastes, Daddy, there are plenty of other examples throughout history. I hope this helps, Daddy.

      • LukeP says:

        *too
        Sorry for the misspelling, daddy.

    • Captain Nugget says:

      What are you trying to say? It happens because they saw a shitty movie? Or that you think it happens because of the reason a movie said it happens?

      Any of y’all seen “Superman?” Stop acting like space aliens aren’t coming here and flying around and stopping supervillains.

    • lee hoskin says:

      The Bulter is only loosely based on an actual WH butler – all that stuff about his mother being raped by a white man TOTALLY FALSE…it’s called Hollywood make-believe, may so-called “facts” never happened except in the writer’s mind.

    • sheila says:

      YOU DIDN’T MENTION THE BLACK GOT OVER HOMELAND SERCURITY WHO SAID WE NEED TO HAVE A MASS WAR ON WHITES TO KILL THEM. HE IS STILL WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT. THE PEOPLE THAT WORK WITH HIM ARE SCARED. HE STILL HAS HIS JOB. HE ORDERS GUNS ETC. FOR THE GOVERNMENT. LET A WHITE PERSON JUST SAY THE N WORD & THEY ARE FIRED. LET A N—- —- SAY LET’S KILL ALL THE WHITES & HE KEEPS HIS JOB WITH THE GOVERNMENT.

      • Sick of the duplicity says:

        Why do you respond in all caps? And why did you refer to blacks as N_____? You perpetuate the racism by using the very word that maligns you. That’s sheer idiocy! Racism exists in all cultures and to deny racial animosity by blacks is delusional at best and dishonesty at worst. If blacks want equality why is there affirmative action? Oh that’s right, only if it benefits the blacks it’s affirmative action. If a more qualified white person was hired over a less qualified black person then it’s racism – double standards that. If you are tired of the negative perceptions of blacks, then quit glorifying the music that reflects the gangster mentality.

    • Linda says:

      “The Butler” is full of lies. Ronald Reagan is portrayed as a racist, when he didn’t have a racist bone in his body. In fact, the butler, whatever his name is, was the only member of the White House staff to be invited as a guest to a State Dinner….invited by Ronald and Nancy Reagan!

      The fury that is being whipped up in the black ghetto by Obama’s syncophants, and the shameless race pimps like Sharpton and Jackson, not to mention NO BLACK FATHERS IN HOMES, is pushing impressionable black youths to not only BLAME “Whitey” for their sad state in life, but to MURDER WHITEY!

      So your analysis actually sucks. How pathetic that Americans get their history and their information from Hollywood, the cesspool of the Culture of Death and Hatred and Perversion.

    • Shari says:

      Frustration and anger from the black community was justified 148 years ago, when slavery was in full swing. But it is not justified today in 2013, because none of these blacks were or ever have been slaves, and none of the whites on the planet have ever been slave owners. I am sick and tired of being labelled ‘racist’ because I am white, because I have never been a racist person in my entire life. Open your eyes and you will see that it is the blacks who are the racists and they have been excused and encouraged/allowed to turn into little criminals for much too long. I will say this: Any person, black or white, who threatens me, my children or grandchildren, or my home can kiss their backside goodbye. I don’t care how bored they are or what ignorant excuse they may feel justifies it. Whites have got to start standing up to oppression, from whatever source it comes. I’m tired as hell about it, and for one, I am not going to take it anymore!

    • Fred says:

      Hey Iam,

      Brilliant. You’re going to cite Hollywood in you’re defense? You’re going to cite racist Oprah in your defense? That’s like getting all your information on Nazis from Signal magazine.

      Black people have nothing on white people when it comes to frustration. Anger soon to follow.

      • mikhal skuli says:

        White people are horribly oppressed. They live longer, make more $, have more wealth, better educations snd control almost everything of consequence in US. It’s just terrible ;).

      • MW says:

        Mikhal. Right. Whites have never been oppressed. Neither by their religion, or by dictators. Not at all. Read a goddamn history book.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          @mh-And I said “whites have never been oppressed” where? One thing is certain-the entire white race in US were not slaves for 250 years and not subject to Jim Crow for the next 100 years .

      • MW says:

        *because

      • Lukep says:

        Wow, Fred. “Deep thoughts from whiteyville”

      • Matt says:

        Black people always want to pull the slavery card, as though they are the only people in the universe to every be enslaved. EVERY group of people has been enslaved. The Jews were enslaved like 12 times for hundreds of years at a streatch (slight exaggeration there, for yous guys that can’t resist arguing the trees and ignoring the forest); Germans were enslaved for a couple hundred years, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

        You want to know about frustration? Here’s frustration: Remember White History Month? Me either, but I remember Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Pacific Islander Celebration Month, Hispanic Month, Disabled Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month AND Day, and even Chinese-American owners of injured cats day. That isn’t frustrating?

        Or how about being constantly preached to, from every side, about racism and equality and celebrating diversity, and then realizing that there is no scholarship fund for you because you’re white?

        Seriously, people, you were never a slave. Your parents were not slaves. Your grandparents also were not slaves. In fact, there’s a pretty good chance that your GREAT-grandparents weren’t slaves. Move on. Stop talking about it.

        How about, instead of fighting about being black and white or Asian or Scandinavian or Pacific Islander, we agree to be AMERICANS?

        Radical notion.

    • realwriter24 says:

      You do know elements of this fictional movie were based on actual events, but many key elements used to dramatize it for $$$$$$$$$ sake were purely made up. It was far from being a documentary. Sad, because the core story untainted is a good positive one, but political motivation ruined this particular project. Hollywood is not a reliable news source Liz..

    • LukeP says:

      • FAITH7 says:

        @LukeP you say: ” are you denying entirely that black oppression in America exists?” Ok Luke I’ll bite, but, you cannot throw out a blanket statement like this without backing it up…with some facts Can you elaborate just how, and by whom blacks are
        “Oppressed” in ” America today”? I am perplexed..honestly…

      • LukeP says:

        @Faith7, I could see where you could misinterpret what I said based on my grammar, but I was referencing more the “leftover” oppression since the civil rights act. I still believe (at least in the south) that oppression exists in subtle forms, but for all intents and purposes, it does not. But after 250 years of denying that blacks are human in their home country and writing laws based on that premise, whites will have the edge for a good while longer.

    • MW says:

      Oh, that makes perfect sense. And I like it how you say that I deny the fact that Blacks have been oppressed, because that’s not what I said at all. My question regarded around how their frustration leads to innocent people being murder. I guess that explains why all the other minorities in the United States that have struggled are murdering innocent people all the time. Oh, wait.

      It’s like what the other poster said. Maybe that would have been okay two-hundred-years ago, but now it’s time to move on. We even elected a Black President, which as far as I remember, in the beginning of the campaign, was even shun off as not being “black enough.” Please. Even The Boondocks writer knows what’s going on.

      How does the oppression and the frustration from many years ago yields to innocents being murder? That was my question that still hasn’t been answered, and frankly, seems that no one here does.

      And as far as my refugee parents, I give thanks everyday. I would have not been extremely successful today if it wasn’t for them. When my parents first came to the US they were ousted by both the Blacks and the Whites, but instead of turning their frustrations against them, they used it as their strength. Not once, not ONCE did I ever hear a complaint from them. Not even against those that have used racist terms against them.

      Luke, I really do hope you find your way, because right now you are a lost soul like many Americans.

      That’s all I will say, and I will still reflect on my question every night.

      Best,
      MW

      • mikhal skuli says:

        My family had its share of difficulties as well, mh, but my ancestors were not slaves in US for 250+ years and denied basic rightsin US for another 100+ years. Denying that that experience has a lasting impact on future generations (as evidenced by every socio-economic indicator in US) is exactly why US has the very problems you are complain about.

      • LukeP says:

        First of all, I didn’t say that you deny black oppression in the US, I asked if that was the case. If it is the case that you do recognize this oppression, then my question would be “What effects do you think this long lineage of oppression has had, if any, on the black community today as they regard whites in America?”

        This is not an oppression that ended two hundred years ago. Has it gotten better? I would say yes, it has. But as I have previously delineated, when American whites wrote the laws that govern our country, the blacks were not considered citizens. Most were dragged from their native land and FORCED to come here by whites. After slavery was abolished, they were left to live in a land governed by laws that still did not acknowledge them as people.

        It was only 47 years ago that their rights were federally protected. So, yes, blacks have “rights” now, but they are at least 200 years behind whites as far as representation, and as Mikhal has repeatedly mentioned, they are 200 years behind in having wealth. Now before you say “They have the opportunity for that now,” I’ll go ahead and agree that yes, in many ways they do. However, wealth takes time. It is not about the “bootstraps” narrative of the conservative American dream. It’s about generations of black families having wealth and gaining influence, legally, culturally, and otherwise.

        So, on to your question:

        “How does the oppression and frustration of many years ago yield to innocent people being murdered?”

        I don’t think anyone could reasonably conclude that oppression is the single cause for the violence in black America, notably the black on white violence. On the other side of that coin, to conclude that the current state of black America has not been effected by this historical oppression is as foolish as saying that the civil war has no existing effect on the relationship of the north and south. So, there is simply a gray area here that you are overlooking. The relationship between black and white America is complicated. It is an ongoing struggle. You can oversimplify it each night when you reflect on your question if you want.

        If there is a particular reason you think that it has NO effect, I’d love to hear it.

        This blog post, in addition to being a sad attempt at justifying racism, is hypocritical. Matt brings up “race pimps,” as he rallies the angry white’s to talk about how fearful we should be of blacks. We all agree that black America has problems, but that is irrelevant. This post was written in response to the media coverage of the Trayvon Martin case, and Walsh, like Limbaugh, is trying to turn Lane into Martin. The only thing is, Lane’s murderer’s are behind bars.

        No matter, though. Continue justifying your racism. You are, after all, “Found” where I am lost. I guess us lost will have to acknowledge problems in society without fear mongering on skin pigment, and hope that one day the amazing grace of racist justification will find us, too. Hallelujah.

    • Deb says:

      Oh for FUCK’S SAKE! Any of y’all seen “Schindler’s List?”
      Stop acting like frustration and anger from the Jewish community comes from out of nowhere…Oops, that’s right. Jewish people ARE NOT useless pieces of GARBAGE killing innocent people just b/c of their color or religion or ethnic background. They were rounded up, ENSLAVED (multiple times over thousands of years as a matter of fact), SLAUGHTERED by the millions, and then SHUNNED in American society to the point where you still have people–black so-called “leaders” in particular–referring to them as “Kikes” and “Heimies” and calling for their murders, and no one bats an eyelash.

      And yet they PROSPER, disproportionately, relative to their number in our population while BLACKS DO THE OPPOSITE.

      “Y’ALL” need to get a grip! The slavery you should be “Frustrated” about is being a “slave” to your own ignorance and self-imposed “victimhood.” Those have more of an impact on keeping “y’all” in BONDAGE than any shit any white person ever did (especially shit they didn’t do to YOU PERSONALLY).

      • mikhal skuli says:

        Jews have had a very difficult history, but the were never slaves in their own country for 250+ years followed by 100+ years of racial discrimination. And I think the palestinians might quibble about whether Jewish rage over their history had led to acts of violence against another people.

      • LoveMyKiddos says:

        AMEN, Deb. Seriously people…

      • Lewil says:

        Actually I think a lot of Palestinians would say that Jewish people are killing innocent people just because of their religion and ethnic background. I also wouldn’t consider the $3 Billion we gave Israel in aid last year “shunning.”

        Yeah, Hitler was evil, he slaughtered Millions of Jews. I think that is horrible. It’s shitty.
        Someone should have done something about that….oh wait they did do something.

        I will absolutely concede that there are, including the incidents above, white people who are killed by black people because of their race. There is no excusing that. There is no defending that. Someone should do something about that too…. oh yeah, again, the killers have been arrested, are in jail, and if statistics mean anything, are more likely to receive the death penalty than if the races were reversed. Aside from time travel to somehow stop these crimes, what exactly do you suggest we do?

        As for black frustration and oppression – they are still oppressed and have every right to be frustrated and angry. Not the right to kill anyone. How are they oppressed you ask? Well how about by the justice system, where if you are caught with crack cocaine – more likely to be used by blacks than whites – the mandatory sentence is 18 times longer than for those caught with powder cocaine (the white frat boy drug.) This is actually an improvement since 2010. It was 100 times worse for crack than powder prior to the “fair sentencing act” of 2010.

        We can argue the causes and effect of poverty among African-Americans, but lets not for now. Let’s just agree that overall more blacks live below the poverty line than whites as a percentage. Do you think the legal system is oppressive if a black person steals a car worth $5k and gets 20 years, while white collar criminals take billions and get 10 years?

        Listen, I’m not excusing the actions of the kids who killed that Australian or the combat vet, or anyone. Those kids will be punished, as they should. But if you think that as a country blacks are treated equal to whites, then you are not paying attention

    • Gardenia says:

      Hatred has no color…only the excuses behind this sin. It is not born out of self pride but out of a subconscious self loathing. As a Black American Woman, I only want what God wants, “To love your neighbor as yourself.” When we do so, it will be much easier for all this disillusionment and hatred to go away.

  2. Caitlyn says:

    People that commit hate crimes just want to hate. They don’t really care about why they think the people they hate are different.
    They just care that they can separate themselves so they don’t feel guilt for the violence they commit.
    crying when the hate is directed at you just causes the blame game. This creates more hate, giving excuses for more violence.
    People that want to hate have always found reasons. We are good at finding foolish reasons to hate.
    We are not so good at finding the real reasons for wanting to hate when that’s what we should really be doing. :)<- smiley face though because I generally agree with your writing 100% Matt!

  5. I read something recently about how climate change could be affecting the recent rise in violence, but I think it’s just a scapegoat and they don’t really know what it is. It is pretty sad though.

  6. Illa says:

    In this in-depth study of prison rape, the pervasive prevalence of black-on-white rapes in noted as being excessive and common. White prisoners are in danger of being raped by white inmates, black inmates, and Hispanic inmates, while those of other ethnicities are rarely raped by anyone outside of their own race, with severe consequences from a retaliating ethnic group against anyone who violates the race boundaries. Except against white inmates, who are considered free-for-all. Black inmates interviewed describe it as and act of “revenge” against a “fundamentally racist” legal system and that “[i]n raping a white inmate, the black aggressor may in some measure be assaulting the white guard on the catwalk.” It is only recently that black-on-white prison rape has begun to be viewed as a hate crime. http://www.hrw.org/reports/2001/prison/report4.html#_1_27

  7. Linda Hamilton says:

    I recently saw a story about a white couple that was car jacked and tortured brutalized raped mutilated and killed by a group of 5 black men. It made me sick to my somach. I’m with you I don’t understand why as whites we dont stand up and protest. I get it slavery was horrible so was the hollicust-but my God the Jews have moved on why can’t the blacks? I wasn’t there. Niether were you. Get over it. How is this country ever going to survive if people can’t move on. I’m not prejudice.never have been. But I must say bringing up the past sure makes it tough to stay that way. Everyone needs to take responsibility for their own actions not of others in the past.

    You forgot to mention that the killers of chris lane were arrested when they went to kill a black kid. And that the VAST majority of black crime is against other blacks, not whites.

      Thank you for this comment!

    • Sam says:

      Keep burying your head in the sand. If you don’t think blacks commit hate crimes take a walk down the road, at night, in any “hood” in America.

      • mikhal skuli says:

        Forgot to mention that one suspect is white AND that conservative media posted a picture of a black guy and identified him as the (white) suspect. Forgot to mention that the killers of chris lane were arrested when they went to kill a black kid. Forgot to mention they said they did it b/c they were bored, not b/c lane was white. Forgot to mention that blacks kill WAY more blacks than they do whites. Solid reporting followed by thoughtful, objective comments. 😉 

      • mikhal skuli says:

        And I said blacks don’t commit hate crimes where?

  9. I refuse to be a guilty white person. I have never owned a slave, I treat all people regardless of color with the same amount of respect until given a reason to do otherwise. Black America has got to wake up,look in the mirror, and realize they are their own worst enemy. White people have spent decades on self examination. Time for black America to do the same.

  10. Liz says:

    I find it funny that the white kid was brought up on a lesser charge that included “discharging a weapon”. Does that mean he fired the gun that killed Mr. Lane? Exactly how many time was he shot? Who exactly WAS the instigator? If only one shot was fired that would lead me to believe that perhaps the white kid shot Mr. Lane and the police went easy on him because he is…you know WHITE.

  11. Liz says:

    Also what is with the attack on black on white crime? There is a SERIOUS issue with white on black crime in America. HELL there is a serious issue with increase lunacy and violence in general here.Your general rant against black on white violence is not altogether untrue but, “bitch please” there are so many different sides to racially motivated violence that to be selective upon one facet, black on white, is not only naive and seriously biased it (yeah I’m going there) paints you as a completely uncredible racist. So very sad because I applaud you for your article regarding the Ketchup rant in the fast food establishment. If you want to keep this cute opinion blog with the occasional pickup by larger media fine look at only one tiny part of a ginormous problem but if you real journalistic credit try looking outside of your rage and investigate.

    • Nolan Harlow says:

      Great point, Liz. Except, you know, for that whole pesky math thing. You see, blacks are statistically over represented in violent crimes, in every category, over whites by substantial margins. In fact, it’s so great that you have to filter out the hispanics (which are deliberately grouped with whites to reduce the disparity) to get to the truth. Please come back with statistics that prove anything other than the fact that blacks are substantially more likely to attack whites than whites are to attack blacks.

      You sound spectacularly sheltered. Anyone (and I mean anyone) with a shred of street smarts and common sense knows that young black men are more dangerous than any group out there, as a rule of thumb. Want to hedge your bets to stay safe in America, but you can only pick one group to avoid? Pick the blacks. Everyone knows this, even if they won’t admit it.

      The media disproportionately reports rare white-on-black crime because it is “spectacular” ie. rare. Black-on-white crime has to be spectacular in deed (shooting an unarmed man on a run in the back) for it to make the news.

      • mikhal skuli says:

        Please stop lying about stats re: interracial crime.  84% of white homicide victims were murdered by whites, and 93% of black victims were murdered by blacks.

      • Nolan Harlow says:

        Mikhal,
        I assume that response was directed towards me. Percentages mean little. Look at the statistics that matter: per capita violence rates. Blacks vs. whites. Per capita likelihood of a black attacking a white vs. a white attacking a black. When you adjust numbers to compare apples to apples, they’re crystal clear. When population sample sizes are the same, blacks are far more likely to attack each other and other races, than whites.

        Your use of percentages shows me how ignorant or willfully delusional you are. All those numbers show is that the majority of violence occurs within homogenous groups. Nothing groundbreaking there. But in terms of likelihood, blacks are FAR more likely to attack whites than the other way around.

        And throw away the poverty argument while you’re at it. The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black or hispanic (81% correlation). The next best indicators are a lack of education (with a paltry 37% correlation) followed by poverty (36% correlation) and unemployment (35% correlation). Even crazier, if you control for education, poverty and unemployment, the correlation still remains at 78%!!!

        Translation: Blacks, were they to have the same jobs, income, and employment level as whites would STILL commit crimes at almost the same rate as they do now, at a level 2.5-36 times (depending on which manner of crime we’re talking about) higher than the next group. To use your favorite type of numbers, percentages, that would be 250%-3600% higher.

        I can objectively analyze the statistics all day long. In fact, objective analysis of statistics is far easier than subjective analysis because your pesky preconceived notions don’t get in the way….you simply look at the numbers and see what they say. It’s got to be a lot harder on you TRYING so desperately to look at them from the perfect angle so the numbers say one thing without saying something else.

        Welcome to reality!

      • LukeP says:

        Nolan, what’s your source on those numbers? While I could see your correlations being accurate, your conclusion that blacks with the same job, income, etc. are more likely to commit crimes seems like a logical misstep.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          84% of white homicide victims were murdered by whites, and 93% of black victims were murdered by blacks

      • Nolan Harlow says:

        Luke,
        That is straight from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVR) from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) from the FBI, Lauritsen & Samson’s “Minorities, Crime, and Criminal Justice,” 2000, and “The Color of Crime,” 2005.

        Your comment: “While I could see your correlations being accurate, your conclusion that blacks with the same job, income, etc. are more likely to commit crimes seems like a logical misstep” tells me that you have a bias. I do not. I objectively look at the statistics and see what they tell me. If they said that a region of the country was more violent, or that violence directly correlated with income, I would not twist the numbers to fit my world view and try to attribute it to race.

        What I see here is that you refuse to acknowledge what the numbers are telling you because it does not align with your bias and worldview. You cannot accept that there may be a significant racial component to crime when income and employment are factored out, therefore you attribute it to “a logical misstep.” The r factor (correlation coefficient) from these studies is objective. How on earth can this be a logical misstep?

    • Cylar says:

      Why don’t you do a little research before mouthing off to the blogger about his “cute” blog?

      • mikhal skuli says:

        The ‘new century foundation’ is a racist organization that’s sole function is to publish material that demeans racial minorities. I would encourage everyone to check it out themselves before believing anything it puts out.

      • Lewil says:

        Oh the Examiner – such a stellar source.

    • LukeP says:

      haha, I imagine it does seem that way to you. I’m simply calling your conclusion a misstep because you’re trying to universalize statistics based on race alone with no other factors. It’s not exhaustive. If “All black people” commit violent crime at x rate, I can’t logically conclude that “Black people y (a sample that includes multiple factors, not just skin pigment)” also commit crime at x rate.

      Yes, I could see the correlation you provided being accurate based on a certain calculation, and I don’t think anyone is trying to argue that whites commit more crimes on blacks than vise versa (or overall), but it seems like you’re looking at a statistic of “black people” and concluding that because “black people” commit crimes at x rate, all black people commit crimes.

      These stats serve as a rhetorical fear tactic. It gives Bill O’Reilly and Limbaugh (and Matt Walsh) an opportunity to get on the soapbox and tell black America they need to be more family oriented. I’m not denying that black America has plenty of problems, I’m simply saying that these sorts of general statistics don’t offer much in terms of detailed solutions. It does give you a chance to tell everyone they should be scared of blacks, and it does give you justification in your racism. I know black people. I meet black people. I’m not threatened by them. I don’t fear them. If I am in a “high crime” area, I fear everyone, regardless of statistics and regardless of race.

      I googled the statistics you mentioned. If you want to link something that will take me directly to the reports where you are getting the data that would save me sifting through a long list of statistic reports. Otherwise, I’ll get to it when I can.

      • LukeP says:

        How many google searches did that jewel of an article take to pull up? The author of that site does a really poor job of citing sources. I was led a couple of different times to the New Century Foundation homepage, but never saw any statistics. I was linked to the FBI New Orleans home page, but saw no statistics. There was a link to the FBI page that led me to believe I was being linked to non homicide crime statistics, which turned out to be “Diversity Employment Stats”… The department of Justice link was not operative….

        FINALLY!!! I found a link to the “color of crime” report. Wow. Nothing like the New Century Foundation to fund the “truth” (wink, wink) about race and crimes. I will read through it some more, but it’s early and based on what I read so far I need to make sure my stomach is full and my food is digested before I can get into that mess.

      • mikhal skuli says:

        I stand by my comment. Racists and their current neoracist counterparts are causing the exact problems they complain about. btw-blacks kill other races 7% of the time, far lower % than whites.

  13. Lukep says:

    Do you listen to rush limbaugh every morning and think “OH MY I MUST VENT ABOUT THIS INTERNET I GO TO NOW!!!!” ?

    He already said this. And you, like him, miss the point. Trayvon martin was an uproar because zimmerman was not arrested.

    All of your “examples” are facing prison sentences or the death penalty.

    The blog post you just made is racism. It is willfully ignorant, racist crap. You have an audience because you have no respect for truth and are willing to say factually inaccurate crap using emotional buzz words and disguise it under the veil of being “tired of being pollitically correct.”

    That’s not what you’re being. You’re being an idiot. A racist idot.

      The perps are in jail? Hey, great. That shows that the system works. It doesn’t change the fact that it’s happening in the first place. Even the hangman’s rope won’t undo what’s happened, though it’s the very least that justice demands for the blood of the innocent.

      What is it with the trolls today? None so blind as those who will not see.

      • LukeP says:

        It doesn’t change the fact that murders happen? You’re right there. It certainly doesn’t. Blacks kill whites. Whites kill blacks. Blacks kill blacks. Whites kill whites. The fact that “it’s happening” applies to all of those.

        I don’t understand what it is you people want. Does the media have to say “all blacks are violent racists.” every time there is a black on white crime?? Seriously, what is it you are asking for???

      • LukeP says:

        While you were typing that message, somewhere in America, a white person killed another white person. I wonder if Matt Walsh is as

        “pissed off. I’m disgusted. I’m sickened to my core. I have no interest in being nice or politically correct about this.”

        As he was over his new found hero Chris Lane?

        No. He’s not. Because he can’t justify being pissed off at any particular group based on skin pigment when a white dude kills a white dude.

        And don’t look now, MATT WALSH, but your little buddy Cylar here with that post below just turned you into what the rest of your first paragraph accuses others of being… Here, I’ll remind you.

        ” I’m tired of the blood thirsty race pimps who do everything in their power to stir up hatred and animosity, and then fade into the night when the poison they spread claims another life.”

        And here goes your follower, Cylar:

        “If you or your family are on your way to becoming a statistic like these unfortunate souls, then don’t hesitate to draw and fire if you sincerely believe you’re in mortal danger. Put a round in your assailant’s head. In the unlikely event the legal system prosecutes you, at least you or your loved one will be alive.”

        Did you here that? Watch out, folks! Blackie’s coming to get you! I heard it from the New Century Foundation!!!

        Once again, willful ignorance. Racist, willful ignorance.

      • Nolan Harlow says:

        Luke, I think a better way of starting your response, you know, for the sake of accuracy, would be:
        Blacks kill blacks and blacks kill blacks and blacks and blacks kill blacks and blacks and blacks kill blacks and blacks and blacks kill blacks and blacks and blacks kill blacks and blacks and blacks kill blacks and blacks kill blacks

        and blacks kill whites and blacks kill whites and blacks kill whites and blacks kill whites and blacks kill whites and blacks kill whites

        and whites kill whites and whites kill whites and whites kill whites and whites kill whites and whites kill whites and whites kill whites

        and whites kill blacks.

        There. thats a little better.

        Anyone who doesn’t realize that blacks are more violent as a group than any other group either lives in North Dakota, is a hermit, or has the street smarts of an infant.

      • Lewil says:

        I have to agree with Luke here. 1st the Examiner is not credible. Second, even if you buy the statistics, they only prove that Blacks are charged at a higher rate and convicted at an even higher rate than whites. You are correct that Mikhal’s statistics don’t prove anything, but really neither do yours. Sure we should be angry about black on white crime. We should be angry at crime in general. But if you think somehow that blacks are getting one over on us because Rachel Maddow doesn’t call Lane’s killing a hate crime, then you are likely overreacting. The killers are in jail. What else do you want?

  14. Cylar says:

    These stories remind me of why it’s important to obtain a concealed-carry permit if possible to obtain one in your jurisdiction. And any adult without a criminal record can do so, as long as he lives in one of the 44 states where issuance is either mandatory or where permission is not even required. (Even the remaining six will usually issue one if you live in a rural part of the state.)

    If you or your family are on your way to becoming a statistic like these unfortunate souls, then don’t hesitate to draw and fire if you sincerely believe you’re in mortal danger. Put a round in your assailant’s head. In the unlikely event the legal system prosecutes you, at least you or your loved one will be alive.

    If enough of these racially motivated thugs are shot and killed in the act…eventually word will get around in the gang world that attacking random people isn’t a good idea, because it’s getting to the point where more and more of them are armed and able to respond with lethal force. (In some red states, like South Dakota, an estimated 1 in 12 adults is “packing.” As the years roll by, that’s going to become more common, not less.) A pleasant side effect is that general violent crime will continue to drop as it has been doing for years.

    If you’re over 21 and never been found mentally deficient or guilty of a serious crime, then talk to your local sheriff and inquire about a concealed carry permit. Get the permit. Get a handgun. Buy some ammo. Qualify with your weapon if your state requires that. Clean and maintain your weapon properly. Join a local rifle club and practice each week so that you’ll be prepared to draw quickly and fire accurately under pressure.

    If someone wants to kill you, make sure he dies trying. Don’t f*** around with these thugs and criminals. Put em down and in the ground.

    • Crystal says:

      Leave it to the Americans to go ranting about how useful it is to have a gun. GROSS !!! How hypocritical !!
      I truly believe many of these discourses are rooted in hate and violent themes that have no place for self examination.
      Ugh, I am so DISGUSTED with how the American Nightmare is shaping the world’s economy with war-mongering. And ya’ll just love to sit around and accuse who is most violent and who kills who.
      USA is the number one manufacturer of weapons. The USA has the largest budget allocated to defense. So if you have a certain under-privileged group becoming oppressed to a point of resorting to violence (such as you have, America) I call that THE ROOSTER COMING HOME TO NEST.
      American sows war everywhere on the planet with her culture, her money and thinks she can be OK with that because of how she won WWII and because she “défends liberty” a f*cking inert Statue ?
      It is awful that som many inocent (black, white or purple doted) have to die because of this predicament. It truly is because of hate, prejudice and other forms of violence, but don’t you dare say its because White America is no longer a “slave driver” or has done nothing wrong.
      And don’t reply to this wirh how I can’t spell. I happen to be of French descent living in Québec. Yes, you know, the good Quebecers once called “white niggers” because we didn’t speak English and who were canon meat (along with our borthers the Natives) at Normandie so the Americans could set foot on land and not be blown up…and then be called “Heroes”.

    • mikhal skuli says:

      Every statistically valid gun study shows that a gun bought for self defense is FAR more likely to kill afriendor family member than an “intruder”. You and your family are in more danger having guns than not having them.

      • Fred says:

        It all depends on what buckets you put the numbers in. I’d like to see one of these “statistically valid” gun studies that you cite. The funny thing about statistics is, once you have locked in the variables, you can push the outcome about any way you want.

        Part of it comes down to what kool-aid you’re drinking, but, even kool-aid laced statistics don’t lie, as long as you understand the pretense and the context. So yea, when an anti-gun advocate writes a study like you claim, I have no doubt of the outcome. That it somehow pushes data to show that a gun “bought for self defense”, is more “likely” to kill a “friend or family member” than an intruder. I’m sure the same can be said for kitchen knife sets and blunt objects. That chopping knife you bought? More “likely” that you’ll use it to kill a member of your family than an intruder.

        Then there is the truth. My “truth” is not the same as your “truth” I suspect. We all seek what we want to be true to different ends. But it doesn’t change the ultimate truth. Until someone can show me otherwise, my truth is this: Millions of acts of violence are prevented every year by gun owners. No shot fired, sometimes even no weapon drawn. The knowledge that a victim has a gun creates a simple response from predators: go for the weaker victim down the street or in the next town. Watch any predator animal on the hunt…., rule number one…, don’t get hurt. So I am certain that your study’s “killed family members” pales in comparison to the families that defended themselves against thugs…., by orders of magnitude. Not two times, or three times, but 1000s of times less likely.

        The whole premise of the blog is how blacks are emboldened by the current political climate, generations of entitlement, fatherless homes, and perpetual victimhood. They’re predators. Predators who don’t think they can get hurt. The days when they randomly attack whites, and don’t think they’ll get hurt? Those days are numbered. I can assure you of this.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          @fred-“Your truth” and “my truth” are just personal biases. That’s why I depend on science when I want valid answers. You can find tons of gun studies to support your pro gun beliefs – they’re just not scientific. As far as me posting gun study links, it’s a waste of time. You’ve already decided. btw-I’ve owned guns and have used them for self defense, but that doesn’t change the actual FACTS of gun ownership.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          Well, yeah, fred, since every statistically valid gun study shows that a gun bought for self defense is FAR more likely to kill a friend or family member than an “intruder” that’s my answer to the “just get a gun” solution.

      • Gene says:

        The problem with this “argument” is that it isn’t relevant. Studies show that you have a higher chance of injuring yourself or a family member by dropping a fire extinguisher on your toe than you do of actually using it to put out a fire… who cares? There is NO SUBSTITUTE for a fire extinguisher (or a gun for that matter) when they are necessary.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          That logic works great of you equate getting a stubbed toe with killing a friend or loved one.

  15. Sade says:

    I am African American and female, although it is true that the violence is race related and senseless. The author of this blog comes off as a bigot himself. A random 1 line about 70% of black men abandoning their children have no basis on this post and yet you place in there to represent a point, some point. I don’t know exactly what that point is. I am not saying that these men and boys are right. I am saying that your hateful words are also promoting the same thing that my culture has been learning for years. Random facts and acts of violence do not make a whole culture racist, it just promotes fear and encourages more violence. There is hate everywhere, it is not right. Your persuasive essay or whatever you intended this to be is disappointing. You want to be enraged by the acts of violence by men. It is not color. Hateful acts by races of all kind are wrong. Racism on either side is not something that has changed. The system which it is judged has.

    • MW says:

      Hm. I think what the author mentioned that statistic is because the breakdown of the family leads children astray, thus toward more acts of violence.

      • mikhal skuli says:

        Not sure where the 70% figure came from, but I’m guessing it is loosely taken from studies about the % of children living in single parent families. In those studies, 70% is a valid reliable statistic for black children, but is far different from the blogger’s use of “70% of black fathers ABANDON their children”. Absence and abandonment are not the same thing and, of course, “abandonment” is a judgement loaded term with heavy negative connotations. All of which leads to the question; why did the blogger use “abandon” instead of what the studies actually measure, that being absence.
        *if the blogger actually had a valid reliable scientific study about black fathers “abandoning” their children, I apologize for the question.

      • MW says:

        For homes without a Black father, I didn’t see the citation, but it seems that it’s around 64 percent. This one says the figures came from the Census Bureau.
        http://www.fatherhood.org/media/fatherhood-statistics

        This one says it’s around 63 percent, but the rate is higher for whites than the Census, and was published in Fatherhood Initiative. http://firstthings.org/father-facts

      I appreciate your post Sade. And you, perhaps inadvertently, brought up a good point. While we have been going back and forth about who is more responsible for violent crime, whites/blacks etc. The truth is staring at us right in the face. By FAR the group most responsible for violent crime – and crime in general – shares one trait. It isn’t that they are white, it isn’t that they are black – it is that they are men.

    americans love to get hyped up when an american (white or black, we’ve seen both sides here) is killed or attacked. of course. why isn’t every single person on here outraged by the deaths of millions of innocent citizens in iraq, afghanistan, syria, vietnam as well then, if frequency of murder associated with race (or, if we were to be more inclusive and prudent, nationality) is being discussed here?
    white people commit crimes against you and others in the international community every day, but most people don’t acknowledge the ramifications of economic warfare and greed as readily as these individual violent acts, because the media hypes these smaller, more emotionally charged issues up. the actions being taken by corporate and government interests that result in mass murder in other countries, and have also historically oppressed not only physically but economically the marginalized communities described in this article – and i can’t help but feel a lot of us “woods” don’t care because it seems to serve our interests and conveniences.

      Lauren,
      Please go back and reword your rant in a format that would at least receive a passing grade in middle school. Then we’ll take the time to read and process it.

      From what I’ve vaguely gathered, you’re in the I’m-white-but-blame-whites-for-everything crowd. Please go somewhere more diverse (Africa, the Middle East, India, Asia, a Muslim sector of Europe, Mexico…that’s about 80% of the Earth…) and live there for a few years. Let us know if you’re still convinced that all of the worlds problems are the direct result of evil white men, or if maybe, just maybe, humankind is broken and evil. I suspect your perspective on the root cause of the world’s problems may change a bit.

        And yes, the worlds problems are because of the evil tha tlurks in the hearts of humankind WHICH IS FACILITATED by the capitalist based structures WHICH IS upheld most strongly than no other….drum roll…. than your beloved America.

        The USA is NOT the only source of suffering, but is a key player and the largest vehicle of this economic slavery.

        America feeds on the desolation of other countries for its own strength.

        Do other nations do the same ? Of course ! But they do not have the same level of influence and power and so do not have as large an effect in perpetuating a climate of violence and fear.

        And what goes around comes around.

        Hello Nolan,
        I gather that my omitting of capital letters is your primary source for insulting my intellect, so here you go. I dislike when a person goes out of their way to insult me twice, but not actually address even one point I made. I didn’t imply all white men were evil, or that the worlds problems were only caused by white men. I hope you will vaguely gather my actual point, now that I will reiterate it in a grammatical formatting that suits you. From a simple observation of American popular media, it is very easy to see that when an individual (either black OR white) is murdered, there is a substantial outcry. For good reason. My question is why the deaths of innocent civilians at the hands of the USA is not equally upsetting? Economic crimes are statistically a white crime. These economic crimes play out nationally and internationally. Corporate and government interests that have been the direct cause of mass murder in other countries have also historically oppressed (not only physically but economically) the marginalized black community described in this article, as well as other ethnic groups and immigrants. Your argument smacks of classism, and I would earnestly like your response to the idea I’ve put forward VERY POLITELY here.

        Thank you,

        Lauren

      • Nolan Harlow says:

        Crystal,
        Your implication is that, without the US, there wouldn’t be factories in Africa or Mexico and life would somehow be better for them. Your implication is also that, without the guns produced in the US, these war ridden countries would not be war ridden, and would in fact be better than they currently are. Do you honestly think that these voids wouldn’t be instantly filled if the US ceased to exist tomorrow? You’re lying to yourself if you do…history has shown us that mankind is universally brutal to those outside our immediate circle, and life in all regions of the world, since the beginning of time, has been brutal, volatile, and short. The US may contribute to this

        America feeds on the desolation of other countries for it’s own strength? Give me a fucking break.

        We’ve got our issues, no question about it. At present, we’re rotting from the inside and we as a people need a shift back to the conservative values upon which this country was founded. And a large number of our elected officials need to walk the plank.

        But show me a country that, in theory or application, was founded on more noble principles than the US. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…the opportunity to succeed but not the guarantee that you will. We’ve definitely meddled in foreign affairs with poor results, but what would things have looked like if we hadn’t? Pretty similar when all was said and done, I suspect. Look at all the conflicts we didn’t get involved with…how’d they work out?

        The US remains a country founded on a solid moral foundation. If we’d get back to it, it will still result in our frequent missteps (the natural result of us having our hands in so many pots across the globe)…but again I’ll ask…what would happen if we weren’t involved. Would things definitively be better?

    I refuse to be called prejudiced, as I have friends of all races and try my hardest not to prejudge anybody. But some of the people commenting on this thread might call me that when I say that I did really appreciate this article because there’s a serious problem in our country. racism is still very much alive, only now it’s completely flip flopped from the way it used to be. racism is wrong whether it’s white people against black or black against white. However now it seems that the majority of black people still feel they’re being abused, when most all decent people of any culture would treat any person of African-American descent as an equal if they in turn didn’t act like they’d been mistreated by every white person they’d ever known. I don’t hate black people even though some people of that race have treated me like crap on occasion. A black guy once accused me of being racist when I turned him down for a date. little did he know that my previous boyfriend was black, he just wasnt a thug like the guy who assumed that my only possible reason for not wanting to get with him was because I was a racist bigot. Yeah. That’s the mentality of many young blank males. Not all of them, mind you, just the ones that walk around in packs causing trouble, and yell obscenities at you while you walk down the street, blare rap music and give you the finger while driving for absolutely no reason other than that it makes them feel that they’re better than you, and try to intimidate you because they feel they have the both the power and the right to do it. I agree that there are a decent amount of thugs in any race, but its growing more and more disproportionate with the growing number of black kids that think they’re gangsters because bad examples have taught them to be that way. It’s incredibly sad, because it’s the only way they know how to be.

    It’s not even completely about who’s murdering who, it’s about how we’re treating each other as human beings. So what we’re not all of the same background. So what that in our nation’s past we weren’t all equal. We are NOW. The African-American person that uses their race as an excuse to demean everyone else is the worst kind of racist. There is no other race of person who feels that they are as entitled to hate as some black people are. But they are not entitled to feel that way at all. Isn’t it somewhat prejudiced to assume that every white person you meet is judging you because you’re black?

    • mikhal skuli says:

      250 years of slavery and 100 years of Jim Crow followed by about 50 years of affirmative action and we should just call it even. Yeah, right ;).

      • I highly advise you to take a break, mikhal skuli. You’re not doing yourself any favors by being obnoxious. I’ve been reading all these comments for a while. You are repetitive, sarcastic, and apparently feel that you have the right to belittle anyone who doesn’t worship your opinion. Granted, in this country we have freedom of speech. So I cannot and will not say that you are not allowed to behave like a taunting child, but I will say that others are allowed to stand up for their own convictions. Clearly your opinions are your own, but no matter how many statistics and quotes you use (note that this statement applies to every comment I have read, not simply yours) sarcasm makes you sound like a spoiled kid hiding behind his/her laptop, who feels that they must correct those that they see as ignorant. It weakens your position and could make other people want to skip all your comments as soon as they see your user name. Now, given your track record so far, if you respond at all, you will attempt to sound superior and condescending. I dare you to prove me wrong by writing a polite and well-thought out response.

      • Zoenzo2628 says:

        I am mixed race like our President. My father fought in WW2 & Korea. He fought so that I and you could have a better education and better chances in life. He did not believe in Affirmative Action, he believed that one should get a job because of their abilities not because of their sex or color of their skin. I remember him going to my half brothers school because he was called away from his job because my brother refused to take his hat off in class, my dad walked in smacked the hat off his head and gave him hell in front of the whole class. He told me he would do the same to me if I ever disrespected my self and our culture by behaving like a lowlife. He did not feel that what happened in the 100’s, 1700’s & 1800’s at the hands of SOME white people was an excuse to behave in a negative manner. He believed Black is Beautiful and to be proud of our culture and skin color and not to be ashamed at who we are and if some people judged us then it was their loss. My brother now holds a catering job in Anchorage, AK. I had a cousin shot down and killed, by a black man, he had promise was in school played basketball and was getting ready for college killed at 16. In the wrong place at the wrong time. My family holds a vigil for him every year. It does not get the press that any other case does because it was black on black crime. So take your ridiculous and ignorant comments and do something productive and positive with your life and I thank you to remember the people that made it possible for us to have a mixed race president. To have had Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice serve in a modern day Republican administration. They accomplished what they have because they chose not to make excuses but to do something good with their lives.

          I’m truly sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your story.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          Sorry for your losses, but that does not change the FACT that 250 years of slavery and 100 years of Jim Crow led to blacks having much worse outcomes on every socio-economic indicator in US. Unless you believe those outcomes result from inherent flaws in blacks, which will just lead us right back to the source of the issue.

  18. Crystal says:

    Fred – The USA has the largest gun per capita in the world. The USA has the largest budget for production of weapons. The USA is the largest exporter of weapons. The USA is the only country to have used the A-bomb in an act of war. The USA has the highest rate of killings related to guns than other “developed” countries.

    Do you see a pattern emerging ?

    There is so much information and statistics on the subject (gun control in the USA) that the rest of the world strongly believes that the American population have been brainwashed by FEAR and SENSATIONALISM. It is NOT about “truth” it is about FACT.

    Are most Americans so frightfully nationalist that they cannot see that their gun laws are a problem ? Is this patriotic sense of self righteousness so blinding that your excuse to wear a gun is “to frighten em” off”.

    Great, create more fear in an already paranoid society. Good move , Fred. Good move.

    • “The USA is the only country to have used the A-bomb in an act of war.” Is that worse than what the Japanese did in Nanjing? “Frightfully nationalistic?” Straw man argument. Ever take logic? Doesn’t look like it.

    • Fred says:

      Crystal, you respond like most liberals when confronted with an argument you sub-consciously perceive as making sense. You deflect with machine gun rapidness statements that don’t apply to the discussion at hand. Throw up a smokescreen of emotional-laden rants so you can avoid resolution. Especially in the case when you fear or sense that resolution will be counter to your world-view.

      Stick to the post.

      One premise of the post is that young blacks have been emboldened to attack whites. Many people have made many valid points in the post and in the comments as to why. I won’t repeat them. I don’t see anyone refuting the point that young blacks are attacking whites in this country with impunity.

      A second premise of the post is our society refuses to call it what it is….., to the point that it encourages even MORE violence.

      This obviously brings up the point of self -defense, which of course leads to a discussion of guns. People are entitled to defend themselves against thugs, in any situation, but, in the US, it’s beginning to dawn on whites that they indeed have a unique problem. Our press, our police departments, our politicians refuse to address this problem.

      You say I am creating “more fear”. Dear God, I hope so. That’s the point. When a predator fears a potential victim they move away. They need to be afraid. And I refuse to have someone I care about, or myself, get our head bashed against the concrete, or beaten to death with a flashlight.

      This is not a debate about gun laws. It’s a debate about the press/police/politicians of the United States ABANDONING one group of people’s concerns, fears and grievances. To the point that the same group of people are now paying for this ambivalence with their lives.

      • Lewil says:

        Yes, let’s get back to the post. And if you want someone to refute the point that young blacks are attacking whites with impunity, let me be the one. I concede that there are young blacks attacking whites. It’s the impunity part where your argument breaks down. “Impunity-from the middle French or Latin – meaning exemption from punishment or freedom from the injurious consequences of an action.” The reports I see say that they are in jail.

      • Fred says:

        Getting back to the Lane murder you’re right, impunity does not apply. If I had only considered this specific incident, I would have not used this word. But I’m not referring to just the Lane murder or the WWII veteran.

    • So, Luke, you deride the thought that evil exists in the human heart. But what about people on “the Right”? Aren’t they evil? What about Zimmerman? Isn’t he evil. What, therefore, is the root cause of all the bad things people do in this world? Is it race, gender and class? Have you ever lied, cheated, dishonored you parent(s), lusted after something that wasn’t yours, back-stabbed somebody, stolen something? One day in the far off future, maybe everyone in this world will be as good as you are. Until then, please have patience with us sinners.

      • LukeP says:

        I don’t view humanity in terms of good and evil, no. Using the terms as a frame of reference, though, no, I don’t believe “the right” is evil. I do believe they are out of touch with people who don’t use binary opposites to frame their view of human nature. They’re also out of touch with women voters, minorities… I could go on, but I would have to hand select certain pieces of what we are calling the “right”. Those examples I gave, for all intents and purposes, just refer to the republican party.

        As for Zimmerman, no. I don’t think he is evil. I think he made a bad decision that led to the killing of a kid. If you wish to have a discussion on the Trayvon Martin case feel free to start one, but for now I’ll leave it at that.

        Of course I’ve done things that you can lump into the category of my evil human nature. Feel free.

        • Luke, I don’t see any benefit in talking about sins you may have committed, so I won’t. I don’t even know you, but I can tell from your posts that you are far from being a criminal, and even farther from being a sinner. You are a far, far better person than I am, and I mean that. Your concern for the oppressed and your patient tutelage of the ignoramuses of the right certainly outweigh any “evil” you may have done. One gets a strong sense that you are quite zealous in the cause for social justice, honesty and purity of thought. No, you are no friend of sinners, i.e., racists, homophobes, the intolerant, sexists, white people addicted to white privilege, etc. Often, sinners give themselves away by manifesting a sense of humility as well as a dependance on some transcendent being who they think is infinitely wiser than they are. At least the repentant sinners do. Take the Red Guard and Mao’s little red book. Better yet, look at today’s Christians. But I don’t sense any of that humility with you. You know what ails us, and you don’t need anyone to guide you one way or the other. You are one totally righteous dude, my friend.

      • LukeP says:

        On the contrary, my friend, I am not the person you have perceived me to be on the internets. My concern for the oppressed is merely a recognition of the oppression. Shamefully, I admit I have no tutelage to claim with the right. I concern myself with their ideals from time to time, occasionally I even find myself agreeing with them, but I cannot watch after them. My attention span is too short. I was born to wander, and I often leave them to their own devices. The evil that you excuse me of must remain unexcused.

        While I can see where I have misled you to believe I am a zealous pilgrim seeking social justice, it must be known that this is not the case. Sure, I imagine a world without racism and oppression, but I don’t believe this world can be recognized through politic and law. I am left again, to myself, a wanderer, to treat blacks, whites, and all skin pigments as respectfully as I can as our paths cross. I try to be honest. I try. At least I try to recognize dishonest intentions. I try to recognize the things we are told in blogs and media as they are, sensationalist in nature, meant to enrage the consumer, sell them soap or shaving cream, and leave them sitting at the edge of their seat (or computer chair) awaiting another rise in blood pressure. I try to warn my fellow white brethren when they are being sold the soap and shaving cream of a young sensationalist blogger daily enraging his white brethren so that he may one day sell them real soap and shaving cream on his blog site. After all, the world can only have one Rush Limbaugh at a time.

        You haven’t been completely misled, though. I am no friend to the racist. I am only a white, middle class male from the south. And I am no friend to the homophobe. I am only a white, middle class male from the south. And I am no friend to the intolerant. I am only a white, middle class male from the south. And I am no friend to the sexist. I am only a white, middle class male from the south. And I am no friend to the white who is addicted to white privelege. I am only a white, middle class male from the south. I once took great interest in a being that is far greater and wiser than us humans, but this interest escaped me. Bless my mother and father, they tried, but my imagination was and has remained incapable of that interest. Life goes on, I suppose, and those that do believe will surely have the last laugh. When we leave this world they can ascend to be with that great being and no longer need to justify their racial associating and no longer post their blogs that enrage their white brethren and no longer have to sell them soap so that they can keep enraging. The viscious cycle of the political dichotomy will be done, and I will be elsewhere, nodding to the man with the pitchfork, respectfully, as he ushers me in to the fiery pits of torture.

        I appreciate your compliments nonetheless and apologize for misleading you.

      • Good one, Luke. This is possibly your best post. I liked it. I will pray for you, my friend.

    >>>84% of white homicide victims were murdered by whites, and 93% of black victims were murdered by blacks.<<<

    Then if this is true, 16% of white homicide victims were murdered by non-whites while only 7% of black victims were murdered by non-blacks. You are not proving your point, even with these misleading "statistics".

    • mikhal skuli says:

      The point is that blacks are killing other blacks at a much higher rate than they are killing whites. Which totally undermines the entire premise of the blog.

      • You need to read it again. I don’t think you get it. The premise, that is.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          No, I get it. It’s just the neoracist “reverse discrimination” premise applied to crime.

      • Nolan Harlow says:

        Mikhal,
        I’m going to do my damndest to get you to understand this magical concept called statistics. I realize this is probably a futile effort. But here goes…

        Let’s take race out of this, because clearly that blinds you. In fact, let’s take humans out of this and use cats and dogs.

        One year, 100 cats and 100 dogs are killed. Of these, 84 cats were killed by other cats and 93 dogs were killed by other dogs. And for the sake of simplicity, 16 cats were killed by dogs and 7 dogs were killed by cats. Still with me? Numbers look familiar? Great…

        Now, your argument is that blacks, I mean dogs, are killing each other at a higher rate than they are killing cats. This is true. 93 dogs were killed by other dogs and they “only” killed 16 cats. And for the cats, 84 were killed by cats and they killed 7 dogs. (Of course, dogs are still killing more than twice as many cats as cats are killing dogs which is not an insignificant point, but I digress.)

        And this is where you shut your brain off, send your retort, and sit back smugly in your chair. “See! Dogs are killing dogs LOTS more than they’re killing cats. The end.”

        Here’s the fucking problem…. In this anecdotal example, the total dog population (pre-murders) is 200 and the total cat population is 10,000. (I made it significantly disproportionate to emphasize my point. Stay with me.)

        When all was said and done, the dogs were killing something at a rate 50 times that of cats. And they were killing cats at a rate more than 100 times greater than the reverse. Because if you were to compare apples to apples, and make both populations the same size, dogs would have killed 4,650 dogs and 800 cats, and cats would have still killed 84 cats and 7 dogs.

        DO YOU SEE HOW THIS IS DIFFERENT?

        When you look at the RATE that blacks kill each other and other races, in comparison to their representative size in society, the numbers don’t lie. They are far and away more violent than any other race and disproportionately represented in every category. I challenge you to show me otherwise.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          @nolanharlow-Thanks for agreeing with me. Statistically, black on black crime is a far bigger problem than black on white crime. Yet we get this blog trying to make it seem just just the opposite. What could be a motive for that. What could be a motive for people defending it so stridently. Hmmmm…….

      • Lukep says:

        Bahahaha….. Nolan, that math is just so….pesky…

        I think mikhal just turned your story on its head, but please, could you give us a few more posts with your demeaning tone and tell us how confident you are that we should all be racists, terrified of blacks?

    • LukeP says:

      Where did Nolan go? I miss his pompous articulation already. Mikhal, you better apologize. I think you hurt his feelings.

  21. between ‘Stand your Ground’ and “Boredom” it’s a wash

  22. Crystal says:

    Fred and Nolan,

    Unfortunately, both of you fall into the predicament your country is in. None of you are willing to admit the decadent violence the USA nurtures overseas and within your own boarders.
    I believe that every Citizen is responsible for their actions, wether they be white or black.
    I call upon your sense to see that “black crime” is not going unpunished, as you presume, but your prisons are filled with black identified persons.

    Nolan,
    I could not presume what it would be like if the USA had not meddled with Cuba, Vietnam, Afganistan, Iraq, Bosnia, Israel and other countries.
    BUT, I could bet my life’s wages that if the resources used in war and war mongering (example of war mongering below) had been invested in improving the conditions of life of the USA own citizens sucha as in education, healthcare, infrastructure, rehabilitation programs, working opportunities, the world might have taken a liking its managing skills.

    Maybe forcing “happiness, freedom” is not the way to go, but merely acting as an example would be sufficient for others to be inspired to a greater good.

    Fred,

    “young blacks have been emboldened to attack whites” How have the Young black people have been emboldened ? Why have they engaged in violence ? As a Spectator of how the USA treats its citizens with lack of proper care and education, I cannot but return the question to you with “why not?”. The conditions in which many minorities live in are deplorable. Of course there are poor white people, of course the elderly are also forgotten, of course it is wrong to kill an 88 year old man. No one contests that. But that is the point ! No one stops to ask the question, What can we do, in our own country to help improve the situation instead of throwing stones and accusing everyone and everybody without proper self examination. And I believe the USA lacks that vey much and more. And it is what I mean by “frightful nationalism”, the incapacity to confess its wrongdoings and turn to a better way of doing things.

    The countries mentionned above are most certainly responsible for a large portion of pain and suffering of its members. However, in a quest to live up to the model of the American Nightmare, and jump into a way of life that is both demeaning to the incapacitated members of society (those most vulnerable) that cannot live up to the so called promises of prosperity of capitalism and neoliberalism, they become desillusioned, violent, angry and bitter. Can you ask the Natives in my country, who in many places have no running water, to drink be clean and be peaceful ? Can we ask the starving of North Korea to stop stealing ? Can we ask of them something they do not have, or is it up to us, the able, the “strong and free” to honestly, without self interest, commercial or military driven interests, to engage in a healthier path.

    Would it not be better to first be inclusive and peace minded instead of drawing our guns ?

    Look to your Nolans and Freds, Americans, this type of like minded violent thinkking will lead to the desolation of not only America, but every other country that earnetly looks to strenghten itself with futilities such as guns, money, power, self-righteousness.

    In a hope to attain the pseudo “freedom and happiness” at any cost, these power structures have forgotten what is most precious and most vulnerable : honest kindness.

    • Fred says:

      Crystal. I admit you’re more focused than in your last response, but having a discussion with you is a bit like grabbing a small piece of Jello. The post is talking about the ambivalence of the US media and US elected officials towards the reporting/acknowledgement of blacks in their crimes on whites. Your monologues of US “imperialism” and our industrial-military complex war mongering machine, blah, blah, blah, even if accurate, are not relevant. Why don’t you just throw abortion, gay marriage, evolution, legalized drugs, church vs. state, etc. into the conversation? If you want to talk about what a demonic country you have beneath you, why don’t you start a separate post to that effect? You clearly have issues with this.

      I have no issue with how folks are being arrested for the crimes they commit, and being prosecuted, and sentenced, including blacks. To me it’s not about whether blacks are proportionally being punished, it’s about the motivation, and how do you disincentivize them? And while you’re talking “peace” and “inclusiveness”, trying to “understand” this motivation, how does that help the white couple when a “flash-mob” of black teenagers attacks them while walking down Michigan Avenue? Because our media doesn’t report it, our politicians don’t care, and our cops are ineffective, I don’t see this going away. What I do see are folks beginning to deal with the reality that they are actually in danger solely due to the fact that they’re white. It’s a new day here in the US.

      Our LBJ/AA social experiment here has gone terribly wrong, but, there is a solution, I am sure, even peaceful. However, that is a long term fix. Crystal, what do you suggest we do short term about the gangs of black kids randomly attacking white people in downtown Philly? Just take your beatings from these poor, bored black kids? Somewhere, a federal bureaucrat, or college professor, or french canadian liberal elitist is going to figure this all out for you! The whole issue is such a grotesque example of “spare-the-rod”. It will only stop when said-rod is used.

      I had to read your logic behind “why not?” several time. As to why blacks are attacking whites. You are astonishing. So you can sympathize with blacks for perceived injustices and randomly attacking white people, but you have serious problems with those same white victims defending themselves? What a disgusting, elitist, world-view you have. Here’s my answer. You have a perception that you are somehow owed the opportunity to beat my ass because I’m white? I’ll flee, or hide, or even talk myself through it. All three are a far better options. But if I have to use violence to protect myself and my family, I will. At that point the why’s don’t matter anymore. I’m not inclined to feed myself or my wife through a straw for any length of time due to a beating, or worse get killed like the victims that spawned this article.

      Re my pal Nolan and me? While you canadians live in your warm fuzzy isolation, and are experimenting with your ineffective, unsustainable, politically correct communist state? Don’t forget if it weren’t for the Nolans and Freds of your southern neighbor, you couldn’t do it.

      • mikhal skuli says:

        Calling people commies. Bwahahaha. That’s awesome 😉

      • Crystal says:

        Hi Fred,
        Oh yes, we Canadians are very much proud of our social programs which keep crime levels down compared to our southern neighbors. It is a known fact, as in other developed countries, that wherever there are investments in social, oops sorry, “communist” programs, crime levels drop. Yes, I am telling you, it’s all true ! If you take care of your people, they WON’T get angry and will live happy fruitful lives.

        Us commies, are very very pleased with the low cost of our education program, free healthcare and overall peaceful way of living. We have been a bit of a puppet to the Whitehouse, I must admit. Yes indeed, if it wasn’t for those pesky southerners, those Nolans and Freds, we propably would have less trouble.
        Unfortunately we have inherited Harper, our current PM who has much of the same mentality you do. The “reactive” mind instead of a “proactive” mind.

        If you truly are asking me for suggestions, in the short term, I think you would benefit from a cold Canadian beer and maybe a week in the Maritimes, cause you know, you’re paranoid.

        Cheers !

        To all other Americans, keep in mind how much money is spent on warbirds and overseas “freedom” fights, and see how much of that money could be diverted to your social programs. Raise social awareness and work with (not against or for) members within your communities and create a change that will last.
        You do not need to see more news about how many black people did this or that. You need to shift your attention to outreach programs, schools, charities, fundraisers, counselling programs for those that have been abused.

        Hey, if it’s working in other “commie” countries, where crime is lower per capita, then why wouldn’t it work for you ?

        Do you think it’s OK for one person to attack, maim, or kill another person, totally unprovoked?

        Do you think it’s OK for the media and police to whitewash these events because of the victim’s skin color?

If it is true, you’re somewhat indebted to enlightening me, especially with your obsession with the facts.

      But with this last note, you’re now reduced to making faces, and thumbing your nose, and, you can only spew your own “facts”, without citing any kind of source or reference.

    • “None of you are willing to admit the decadent violence the USA nurtures overseas and within your own boarders.”

      And if anyone else is contributing to such “decadent violence,” I’m sure we’re not gonna hear about it from thee. I have a sneaking suspicious you don’t give a rat’s ass about the so-called victims of “decadent violence” that you harp about. In fact, methinks the animus within you is a virulent hatred for the USA and its people (the white ones), not any real concern for fellow human beings. If you really cared about the victims of US-sponsored violence overseas, you’d be there, helping, lending a hand, working in a hospital, a care facility, an orphanage. In fact, if there were no USA to point a finger at, you wouldn’t be posting here. Here or anywhere. After the US ended the draft, most Vietnam Era anti-war protesters went home. The silence of those good, caring, peace-loving revolutionaries was deafening during those days of the Killing Fields in Pol Pot’s Cambodia. Why? The good ol’ USA was out of the picture.

    Ridiculous! Blacks are incarcerated at MUCH higher rates than whites so there’s obviously no “impunity”. Never mind that violent crime in US has been decreasing for at least 20 years. Again, what is the real motive for this blog and comments defending it.

    • Crystal says:

      Yes ! Exactly, black and other ethnic minorities are incarcerated at much higher levels. and when time is up, when the debt was paid, how then can they find a decent job ? How then can they restart anew ?

      How about talking about “prevention” and “rehabilitation” instead of “punishement”.

      • I believe blacks should be allowed to do whatever they want, whenever they feel like doing it, and however they want to do it. Police should butt out as soon as they learn they’re responding to a call about a black person. No black person should ever be arrested for anything or end up in jail. With 500 years of slavery and all that Jim Crow behind them, and what with no chance to empower themselves by reconstructing the identify that was stolen from them, what do you expect them to do, you freaken morons, join the Lions Club?

    You talk about how blacks were oppressed.
    But the thing is.. most of the people creating this hate crime were never “oppressed” by the government. They were born in America, where the whole time they have lived here, they didn’t have to: Drink out of different water fountains, use other bathrooms, sit at the back of the bus.
    What I’m saying is that these are 14-30 year olds murdering people because they were “bored” or “they felt like it.” The argument of “white people oppressed me so now I’m going to shoot them all,” is invalid. Because no white person denied you the right to anything. Maybe my Great grandpa kicked your great grandpa off the bus, but I certainly did not.
    So white people do not deserve to be murdered because of their skin.
    Just like black people do not deserve to be murdered because of their skin.
    The sad, pathetic thing is that not everyone agrees that whites and blacks should be equal.
    If you’re so closed minded that you believe that, then go to a country that is mainly your skin color.
    Nobody hurts a rainbow because it’s colorful.
    So why kill someone for something as minor as their skin color?
    Hitler killed because you didn’t fit his, “blue eye and blonde hair” race.
    Are we stooping to Hitler?

      The point is certainly not to justify the violent behavior, but to approach it honestly.

      Let’s do this…
      1.) Destroy all laws in the country.
      2.) Let only blacks set up new laws to rule the land
      3.) Don’t allow whites a voice for 200 years

      Now imagine after that 200 years, white people get a voice after blacks have had 200 years establishing power in this country.

      I haven’t even imagined a world where whites are enslaved, but do you think everything would be peachy after this 200 years???

    • mikhal skuli says:

      EVERY black person in US is impacted by the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. They have lower life expectancy, lower income, less wealth and property, higher incarcerated rates, etc. Now, you can attribute that to something intrinsic to the black race instead of it being due to the history of blacks in US, but that just lead us right back to the basic problem.

      • Kelsey says:

        Matt made a post about the Jewish population a while ago. I highly recommend it. The Jews are one of the most oppressed demographics in history, yet their societal position is about as far as possible from that of the black population.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          I responded to that comment. Jews have had a difficult history, but have not been slaves and suffered rigid institutionalized racial discrimination for over 80% of their time in any country. Plus, they were given their own country with land taken from other people. Very different histories leading to very different outcomes.

      • This blog post has nothing to do with what you keep ranting about, mikhal skuli, but I’m sick of your cretinous bullshit. You are an ignoramus par excellence. How do you know “Every” black person has been impacted? Have you interviewed every single one of them? You are an enemy of blacks, making up unverifiable excuses for every pathology that plagues the black population in this country. You are a race hustler like Jesse and Al. Kelsey makes an excellent point about the Jews. Let’s take a look at the Japanese. If any nation on earth has an excuse for being a loser, it’s Japan. They have no natural resources and their island was bombed into the stone age. Yet they rose like a phoenix from the ashes to become one of the greatest economic powerhouses in history. Culture and values powered the Japanese people out of the ashes and into being producers of the best automobiles, electronics, watches, robotics and you-name-it. How is it that a small island country with no natural resources can be successful, while a country with plenty of natural resources, such as Mexico, can be so mediocre. Culture and values. But keep selling your self-righteous crapola to the black population. I’m sure they’ll love you for it. Meanwhile the murder and drop-out rates will remain high, drugs will continue to flourish in black neighborhoods, and fatherlessness will continue to ensure that other pathological behaviors that plague the “inner city” continue in perpetuity. 500 years from now people like you will still be making excuses. There are reasons why “they have lower life expectancy, lower income, less wealth and property, higher incarcerated [sic] rates, etc.” Those reasons come from within the community and individual, not outside it. Your excuse that external historical forces are keeping blacks down, if true, would be true for everyone. It’s not.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          Let me make sure i understand your position. The fact that blacks were enslaved and suffered rigid institutionalized racial discrimination for 80% of the time they’ve been in US is irrelevant to black crime in U S, but the economies of Japan and Mexico are relevant.

        Is there any difference between “selling self-righteous crapola” and selling the fear mongering of the right? The problem is, you think you’re helping.

        I’m not sure if it’s some sort of “tough love” attitude that the right has taken, but it seems like you think that if O’Reilly/Limbaugh/Beck/and all their blogger minions stand on their soapbox and proclaim that black people are racist and violent, to a WHITE AUDIENCE no doubt, that they are actually interested in a solution to the problem.

        It’s sort of like the “Terror Threat Meter” from the post 9/11 days. The “orange” terror level means I should be “slightly scareder than I was on the yella…”, kind of like the “Hey look blacks are killing whites!” means that I should be scared of every black person I see, or at least suspicious. It is asinine.

        “You are an ignoramus par excellence. How do you know “Every” black person has been impacted? Have you interviewed every single one of them? You are an enemy of blacks, making up unverifiable excuses for every pathology that plagues the black population in this country. You are a race hustler like Jesse and Al.”

        First of all, seriously? Has he interviewed every black person? Sheesh…

        As for the “race hustler nonsense: Here’s the thing… No he’s not. He’s a guy responding to a bunch of white people responding to a white person’s blog about black people…. The person with the public forum here is Matt Walsh. How is his “stirring up whitey” any different than a Sharpton or Jackson “stirring up blacks”? The fact that you agree with him? The only difference in Walsh and Sharpton is that Walsh has a much smaller audience.

      • So you’re saying that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are as bad as Walsh as you see it? But what is this “fear-mongering of the Right” and why do you make reference to it so often? I haven’t seen anyone on this blog standing up and claiming to be of the Right, which you obviously detest. What does that have to do with me? I’m just a guy posting on a blog. Why do you keep lumping people into categories? Is the Left ever guilty of “fear-mongering,” and can you provide an example?

      • LukeP says:

        I’m saying that Matt’s name calling is hypocritical because he is doing the same thing he accuses Sharpton/Jackson of. I do think Sharpton and Jackson hurt (nearly) as much as they help, which is partly due to their abuse of the position of oppression as figureheads of the black community, and partly due to media exposure. I’ve already described the fear mongering in several threads and in the previous post in this thread to which you responded.

        Also, notice that my reference to the “right” came with examples of O’Reilly/Limbaugh/ their minions (Walsh). O’Reilly and Limbaugh both certainly identify themselves with the “right,” and if Matt doesn’t directly do this, he spends a lot of time writing hateful things about the left (usually a version of the left that he creates himself). As you seem to identify yourself as a proponent of Matt’s post, I assume that either you are playing devil’s advocate with me or you do, at least on this issue, associate with the “right” as I referenced it to O’Reilly/Limbaugh/etc.

        As for the “left” being guilty of fearmongering…

        Both “sides” are equally guilty of everything when it comes to media/political rhetoric/ etc. A good example of the left fear mongering would be the debate on hydraulic fracturing and gun control.

        This political dichotomy is only relevant as it is presented to us in the media, on blogs, etc. My “lumping” into groups, therefore, is only relevant to YOU (and others as you mention them) as you identify yourself with Matt’s post here. I am ignorant to your other political views.

        A question I have asked several times on this board is “What is it that you are asking for?” Matt’s post was about the media not using the term “black on white race crime” or some variation. More directly, it was written in response to Trayvon Martin’s media coverage. We have already established that the difference between Martin’s case and Lane’s is that Lane’s killers are behind bars.

        So, I’ll ask again. Since you seem to identify yourself with the “right” on this issue, what purpose do you see these rants about the black community aiming towards? What outcome do these rants make possible? Is the black community supposed to hear the white rant and change their ways? Do these rants only serve as accusatory and, given that they are presented by the right, and presumably to a mostly white audience, does the accusation serve to better the problem that they identify or make it worse? Does it close the racial divide or lengthen it? Are all of you that are teaming up with Matt in identifying this problem doing something in your community to make it better, or are you just agreeing and justifying an opinion you have about black Americans as a whole? Or is it something in between that I’m leaving out?

    Crispinrobles,
    It is very interesting that you bring the Japanese and Jews into this conversation. Here is why

    After the two bombings in Japan, iternational iad was given to rebuild the country. The Japanese had not been robbed of their identity and so had a safe psychological pillow on which to bounce.

    As for the Jews, International funds and aid were given to them to build a country and reclame their identity.

    None of the above has happened for the black population in the USA. They have been plagued with drugs, broken families, violence, lower education levels, all of which are symptms of a truly oppressed community.

    If we could give the USA a psychological profile, it would be that of a bully. Trying to scare everyone and justifying its own demeaning way of talking/killing/hating/blaming others.

    • I’m glad you found my post “very interesting.” So would you say that any ethnic group “plagued with drugs, broken families, violence, lower education levels” are “truly oppressed” communities? Name some more so I can get a bigger picture. Ask your professor if you can’t think of any. I believe this is going somewhere. Thank you.

      • Crystal says:

        HI Crispin,
        I think the Aboriginals from around the world have also endured similar situations (loss of identity and displacment of homeland).
        Aborginals from Canada and the USA
        Natives of Latin American countries
        Palestinians
        Tibetans (occupancy had begun in 1930s) (rise of prostitution and alcoholism in a culture that had not known this practice since before Lama Government)
        and so many more from Eastern Europe and Eastern Russia. (Gypsies, Bosnians, Mongols)
        They either have difficulties with crime, substance abuse, disease or poverty.

        You see, what is plain to most and difficult for those involved and not necessarily a “unique” situation to America (although many Americans, especially White America love to think so) is actually a “normal” reaction :

        If a population has little, less or no opportunity to frame and create their future using proactive and healthy means because of oppression, it will (and cannot help to do otherwise) create a way of life that is not fitted to said imposed living conditions.
        NO POPULATION can thrive without self empowerment. A sociologist will confirm this. All révolutions were due to 1) inadequate resources 2) inadequate security of life 3) inadequate self identity to power in place
        I would like to give an example of something further from home and less likely to sting the ego.
        In Québec, in the 80s, the Québec Gouvernement (although Aboriginal Affairs are a federal ministry) had given large sums of money to specifically build houses.
        Not long after the homes were built, the doors had been ripped off and there were no more windows. The Natives had removed them and burned to doors to make fire.

        Why did they do that ?
        And why did the Government invest in housing specifically?

        If you can answer these questions correctly ( because yes, there is a correct answer) I believe, that indeed, this conversation could actually get somewhere.
        Cheers.

    I think it is interesting that in the comments area a debate is going on that, in my mind, has little to do with the post. The post is about honesty, no? No matter what the history of any given group of people, to call violence committed against a black person by anyone who is not black racism even when there is no evidence to support that it was racially motivated and on the other hand attribute violence against a white person committed by someone who is not white and has a documented history of stating that they hate white people to EVERYTHING BUT racism, is dishonest. If the goal is to eliminate racism, then identifying it would be key. Everytime someone screams racism when it doesn’t exist in a situation or fails to recognize it when it does exist in a situation, that person is contributing to the problem. One of my personal heroes, Martin Luther King, Jr, taught love. He realized that if anyone is full of hate that they could not be part of the solution. To hate another group of people because of the color of their skin or their ethnicity is the wrong that was committed in the past by so many. Those minorities that have passed hatred of white people down through generations of their families because of past wrongs, have only perpetuated the evil that King and so many others fought to abolish.

    All this talk of ancient history and citing of Hollywood hit-pieces/propaganda against people who are dead and therefore cannot defend themselves is meaningless.

    The fact that today, just over 50 years after the March on Washington, that the so called “leaders” of the black community still cling vociferously to a sense of victimhood in order to justify their failure to succeed on their own in this country without affirmative action, welfare, food stamps and a whole host of other government programs is testament to just one thing. That they are simply not up to the task of joining American society as equal to whites, asians and other ethnic groups that have found success and prosperity here.

    Irish and Italian immigrants in the 19th and early 20th century were treated with almost as much discrimination as blacks. You don’t see them playing the race card every day while bludgeoning 88 year old war veterans. Where is the soul searching in the black community? Have they no shame?

    And, I love how we continuously go back to the well of slavery which everyone, including scores of abolitionist whites at the time, can admonish. But, there is never any mention of the hundreds of thousands of white union soldiers who sacrificed their blood and treasure to bring slavery to an end in this country. Where does this myopia come from? Do you not see the monuments and cemeteries and battlefields that litter the mid-Atlantic? If the roles were reversed and whites had been the slaves of blacks, do you really think there would have been an abolitionist movement or a Civil War? I mean lets be serious!

        And, we don’t play your monopoly game for 400 years. We only get maybe 40-50 working years. And for those years, only the rules that exist today are relevant.

        For the most part, many of the black men who fought for civil rights in the 1960’s have found prosperity. They grew up in an era that valued family, hard work and independence from the white man. It’s their children who have been suckered by democrat snake oil salesman pushing victimhood and entitlement. Nothing in this world is free. All you have to do is consult the crime and unemployment statistics in public housing neighborhoods to realize that.

        Sure the game is rigged, but not explicitly against blacks. It is rigged against the working man. Misery is not monopolized by black people. Look around you. We make nothing in this country anymore. Corrupt banksters, lawyers, politicians and other white collared parasites control everything. Using dissension and race baiting, they divide and conquer us.

        With not one single penny, our federal reserve system invents $85 billion dollars of US treasuries out of thin air while you and I struggle every day to survive. Large multinational banks get money from the federal reserve for absolutely nothing, and turn around and loan it to the ignorant masses at 10 – 20 – 30%. Wages steadily decline year after year while the wage gap ever widens. They need us busy hating each other while they rob and enslave us. Don’t fall into their trap!

        • mikhal skuli says:

          We know the game is rigged against blacks. There’s absolutely no doubt about that. They were slaves or under Jim Crow for 80% of their time in US, they have shorter life spans, less wealth, lower income, less education, higher incarceration rates and worst outcomes than whites on almost every social and economic indicator in US. And, as many of these comments show, there is still a sizeable group of US who want things to stay that way.

      • The game is rigged against everyone, but in different ways. Is the game rigged against blind people? How about fat people? Ugly people? How about blind fat ugly people? And the biggest obstacles any of these people face are people like you, who keep telling them that they can’t make it because they’re blind, fat or ugly. However, that’s good for people like you, good to keep blacks on the liberal plantation with its government programs that don’t help, its acceptance of pathological behavior, e.g., gang culture and child abandonment, and its shining white knights, i.e., you, who reap the benefits of appearing to be compassionate, caring, and egalitarian. But you’re not compassionate, caring, or egalitarian, and you’re not saving or helping anyone except yourself. So keep the game going. It makes self-serving people like you look good. It gives you cover for the sins you cling to in your own life. Being progressive has its perks. You can feel good about yourself no matter what kind of greedy, selfish, hypocritical, hateful, angry, godless, immoral person you are inside. In the end, it’s all about you.

In this post, this victim culture manifests itself in these unprovoked, random beatings. People are tired of hearing about white people getting randomly attacked by blacks. You deny them this? I get that you are a totalitarian socialist and proud of it, and your world-view is the solution. However, on an individual level, with isolated human/human incidents, your monologues don’t suggest ANYTHING as to what to do with the immediate problem. Indeed you not only don’t recognize the immediacy of the problem, you think it’s understandable for blacks to attack whites. You are actually OK with this!

    I don’t deny historical “facts”, but this is no excuse. One of you libs should stand over one of these white people while they’re getting their ass beat by 10 black teenagers, preaching slavery, and segregation, and Jim Crow. That these past sins, of long-dead people, make it OK for a group of ignorant, rudder-less blacks to gleefully unleash their Id, unchecked, unprovoked, and enraged, with no self-reflection, no self-control, and no respect for themselves or their victims. I’m sure while whitey is getting kicked down the sidewalk that you would somehow make it all so tolerable. “Here that cracking rib? It’s OK…… that’s all for slavery, even though you had nothing to do with it!”

    Sam, I am stunned that you actually buy the crap that people were bored, so they went out and killed someone. Stop and think about that for a minute. They were bored, so they killed someone. Although I am not a proponent of the death sentence, this is such a monstrosity of an analysis, that I would be compelled to permanently remove someone like this from society. Are you suggesting that there is a group of black people out there that are so depraved, that this is all it takes to trigger a murder impulse? Boredom? I am bored, so I kill? All blacks, including those that are bored, should be enraged with you for perpetuating this insanity.

    As this ridiculous cycle of entitlement/victimization circles around to violence, you libs rarely pay the price. Your only concern is that your arrogant, hypothetical and egotistical world-view be force-fed on the rest of the population. And when your whacked-out ideas cause the shit to hit the fan, you’re nowhere to be seen. Leaving the rest of us to clean up the mess. Then you come crawling out of your hole, spewing more of your sanctimonious, harebrained, New England-Yankee nonsense.

    When the next black person, innocent or guilty, get’s killed by a white person, freaked out or not….. or worse, when a truly disproportionate, violent, ugly incident occurs…. you all are to blame as much or more than anyone. If only the Crystals, the Sams, and the Mikhals were there to take the brunt of it.

      Fred, I too am stunned that you “buy the crap” that a grown man exited his vehicle to follow a teenage boy he was scared of (despite being armed) got into an altercation with said teenager and had no choice but kill him. You and Matt were okay with the presentation of that argument/verdict but are calling foul now. That is hypocrisy at its core.
      They were bored…they admitted it…they were going to kill someone else (who was black) that is a FACT. Again if you or Matt or anyone else has a police report of them saying they were looking to “kill whitey to kick start the revolution” or if you have the transcript of Al Sharpton saying to the media and the police to describe it as boredom “or else…” PLEASE present it to the forum. But you don’t have that (because it doesn’t exist except in your head)….all you have is a bigoted and hypocritical opinion that one was right and the other was wrong, apparently based on the race of the victims. I am suggesting that there are enough people as a WHOLE who are depraved enough to kill people for ANY reason. There were two girls in Australia who killed their friend to see what it was like to watch someone die…I don’t see a blog on the dangers of white female adolescents and the danger they are to each other.
      Speaking freely, you have no say in what Blacks should think/feel. So my statement is neither offensive nor deserving of rage…ALL Blacks are not bored…ALL whites are not whatever. These kids were…the young ladies in Australia were…and any other serial killer/murderer in history can offer various reasons why they chose to take life. It says more about you (and Matt) that you hold the behaviors of some deranged and awful people to personify an entire group and then either blog this nonsense or argue with people in defense of it.
      “As this ridiculous cycle of entitlement/victimization circles around to violence, you libs rarely pay the price.

      See this is the problem…you don’t know me…you don’t know my voting record…my beliefs on social/fiscal issues…or my religious beliefs…yet you feel confident labeling me a liberal. Why?? Because I have the ability to challenge the ridiculousness of this blog and the people that have the audacity to embrace it like it is gospel. Your whole statement stands as a mirror reflection of the silliness Matt’s blog, your defense of said blog, and all the other people who high-fived this drivel. Most of you say what you say here is because it is the internet and you are anonymous. You wouldn’t say this at work or around some of your friends…but get alone and the bigot brigade is ready to party all night. What mess are you cleaning up? Are you going in the inner city and seeking to be a male role model to those kids? Are you really looking at how this society has set up a tragic cycle that it is more common for Black men to be in jail or dead than being fathers to their kids? Have you become so alarmed that you have looked at the disparity of this country? Of course not!! You massage yourself with the belief that you are “right” and you know what is best for people you have no interest in (other than telling them what they need/should be doing, how entitled they are, and how they are rampantly killing white people with impunity because King Al makes the media say it is ok). And for the record I am a proud born and bred SOUTHERNOR (Texas to be exact) and even that fact doesn’t stop me from seeing the foolishness you display in defending positions you (and Matt) obviously are only interested in to hinder things and not help.
      “When the next black person, innocent or guilty, get’s killed by a white person, freaked out or not….. or worse, when a truly disproportionate, violent, ugly incident occurs…. you all are to blame as much or more than anyone. If only the Crystals, the Sams, and the Mikhals were there to take the brunt of it.”
      And when you are either silent about it or take the side of the killer because their victim was a “thug” or a “criminal” I’ll remember your insight as well. IF you really were interested in seeking some solution you would see the advantage of letting go some of your built up defenses and entertaining the idea that…there may be more going on here than you see. But that would involve admitting things are not fair and balanced…and Fox News says otherwise. In truth, you will hold just as much blame(if not more) than we will…because in your mind everything is great (or prejudiced against YOU) and you will miss how “your” apathy gives the silent message that it is okay to kill people because you are “afraid.”

        Sam, did you even really read what Fred said? Read it again. I wouldn’t call it a rant. Do you really think that America is responsible for creating a tragic cycle of men who choose to lead a life of crime instead being fathers to their children? Society is not responsible for the fact that, as you point out, black men can’t be fathers to their children. I think that is an insult to every successful black person in this country. Where is the logic? Society has screwed me so I’m going to skip out on my family. I know that people bang this drum all of the time. I don’t see the connection. Is that really how you feel about black people? Ask some of the wives/girlfriends that these men have abandoned how they feel about it. I bet the response you get isn’t going to be a litany of reasons why society forced them to leave. Do you think every white man in this country was born with a silver spoon in his mouth? There is plenty of white trash running around shirking their responsibilities. Character is the issue. The idea that a group of people can’t somehow turn their culture and neighborhood around is a weak view of what human beings are capable of. They should care about their own backyard more than anyone else does. If they don’t there isn’t much hope for them. Regardless of race, if you choose to procreate then take responsibility for your actions.

        The fact that the government must somehow fix this is ludicrous. That we as a society owe blacks or anyone else compensation for being born into the wrong basket is absurd. You pointed out that Fred should be doing something in the inner city to help improve the situation. Why? He chose to express a viewpoint and now he is obligated to help the downtrodden? What is your schedule for humanitarian efforts for the week?

        Perhaps you should read John Pellicciaro’s post for further clarification.

        • mikhal skuli says:

          The central problem with most of the comments critical of blacks is that most commenter’s aren’t even willing to consider the causes of behavior beyond race. The reason for that is that, for many people, race is the only reason for the problems facing blacks. Also, If you aren’t smart enough to understand the difference between recognizing the causes of behavior and excusing it, then you probably shouldn’t be discussing human behavior.

    • Sam says:

      @Lisa
      “Sam, did you even really read what Fred said? Read it again. I wouldn’t call it a rant.”
      I would, and I think any intelligent, rationale person would as well. Rants are full of opinion, polemicistic language, and bigoted stereotyping…and Fred’s rant, John’s Rant and Matt’s blog which kicked it off are text book examples of the above definition. The greater question is why do you think otherwise??
      “Do you really think that America is responsible for creating a tragic cycle of men who choose to lead a life of crime instead being fathers to their children?”
      Yes…that has its roots in slavery…the structure of the Black family was purposefully and willfully severed. Of course you’ll say “well its 2013” but when there is deep rooted inequality, the perceived notion that the Black male is a threat and must be eliminated (by drugs, jail, etc) then you see an absence of the very foundation that is needed to curb some of this tragic behavior in our youth.
      “Society is not responsible for the fact that, as you point out, black men can’t be fathers to their children. I think that is an insult to every successful black person in this country. Where is the logic? Society has screwed me so I’m going to skip out on my family. I know that people bang this drum all of the time. I don’t see the connection. Is that really how you feel about black people?”
      Individuals are responsible…the fact you miss is that society plays a ROLE in the sad state of affairs. It’s not an insult…it’s a fact…now the irony is that as a successful Black man I have to hear “knowledgeable” white people get online and tell me what is wrong in my community and we just need to “stop having sex” so we can get our act together. So why is it okay to blame one…but wrong to “blame” the other.
      “Ask some of the wives/girlfriends that these men have abandoned how they feel about it. I bet the response you get isn’t going to be a litany of reasons why society forced them to leave.

      It would be awesome if you shared this insight/revelation with Matt, Fred, John, and every other “patriot” that is high fiving this blog…yet you chose to come at me. That tells me that despite what you are saying…you agree with Matt’s POV thus it makes this statement hypocritical and ironic.

      “The fact that the government must somehow fix this is ludicrous. That we as a society owe blacks or anyone else compensation for being born into the wrong basket is absurd. You pointed out that Fred should be doing something in the inner city to help improve the situation. Why? He chose to express a viewpoint and now he is obligated to help the downtrodden?

      The point is it is real easy to play arm chair quarterback…it’s something different to actually role up your sleeves and seek to get things done.

      “Perhaps you should read John Pellicciaro’s post for further clarification.”
      I read it…and I shook my head at the hypocrisy of it. After establishing his “credibility” John launched into a rant (remember the definition) filled with foolish observations, bigoted opinions and the cure all for Black malaise…stop having sex. This ignores all the other people who have sex out of wedlock, can count criminals in their racial camp and other moral failing…but you glossed over that…because you agree with his nonsense. That erodes your credibility and handicaps whatever “point” you are trying to make. If you happen to feel that John Pelliccaiaro (a bigot in a relationship with a minority) has some sort of point then that is your right…just don’t be upset if anything you say is dismissed because instead of siding with facts, you have chosen to side with silly opinions. I will lay out the challenge again. If you, Matt, Fred, and John have any factual proof to back up any of the claims you claim…present them. So far no one has done so. I wonder why?

        Sam, I’m sure as a black person it is more than aggravating to have a white person who has never even been in a ghetto or lived as a black person tell you how they think the black community should clean up their act. Kind of like walk a mile in my shoes and then tell me about it sort of thing.

        That is not the point that I’m trying to make. I am by no means an expert. I just can’t help but wonder why a certain aspect of the black community keeps perpetuating the same behavior over and over again and expects anything to change. Same as I would think of anyone else who kept doing the same thing. If you want to change your life you have to change. The government or society cannot change it for you. In fact I think their interference has only made things worse.

        I’m interested in your opinion on where you think things fall through the cracks. Why this doesn’t change. I’m not being a smartass here. I would really like to hear what your viewpoint is.

        I have no idea what it would be like to live in a ghetto. I would guess that most of the people who are posting here don’t either.

        From the outside looking in it seems that there is no personal responsibility here for choices that have been made and behaviors that are acted upon. That’s all I’m saying.

      I have in my posts…you ignored that (apparently) when you gave accolades and “credibility” with the bigoted foolishness of John. Sexual freedom is a generational issue not a racial one (and had its origins in the counter cultural 60s), the sickening behavior and attitude of our youth is a sign of poor parenting in all facets. When the parent is absent because he/she abandoned the family or they are more interested in moving up the career ladder and thus use money to parent their kids… result is the same…kids with loose/no morals. That is common regardless or racial/gender/financial status. The relativistic attitude we hold now that allows us to excuse our behavior because it is “true for us” and equally valid as another person’s truth (there is no moral absolute). John painted a picture that whites and Asians are in some danger from Blacks. This discounts the many instances of white on black crime (which Matt, Fred, and John ignore), white on white/ black on black crime, or even the Asian gangs (Yakuza, Triad, etc.) who are violent. The core is EVERYONE in EVERY race has those who cause grief. This is not what Matt presented. He even went farther as to suggest he knew the true cause of the crime and is privy to some secret war that Blacks are waging against whites. And the responses here show he is not the only one to think that. Not do many people think that…they have spent countless hours diagnosing what the depraved Black landscape and have taken to prescribing treatment.
      I respect John for the fact that he taught in a place that many teachers are leery of. I am sure that he may have impacted some students and taught them things. Sadly, he missed out on the other key aspect of being a teacher…learning from the students…and thus as a teacher (and a commentator on Black issues) he is a failure. Throwing out the ridiculous assertions he did (and you acknowledged them as valid) will not help anyone…nor will it garner any reconciliation, positive momentum, or any desire to entertain anything he/you have to say as being true, factual, relevant, and enlightening.

        And what makes you think I grew up in the ghetto or it is related to the ghetto exclusively? The issue is that bigoted people have found an avenue to vocalize their bigoted opinions, high five each other for them, chastise “race hustlers” for being the cause of problems…all the while living in ignorance of their hypocrisy. The issue is that if people knew what they were talking about they would not say the things they are saying…but since they are saying them (ad nausem) it is blatantly apparent they do not know what they are talking about and thus deserve to be dismissed.

        Why do certain aspects of the white community, the Latino community, the gay community, the Asian community, or the female community perpetuate certain behaviors? The primary difference is that it is only in the Black community that these behaviors/actions of a few are assigned to the entire race as a whole. Al Sharpton speaks for Al Sharpton…yet to hear some people explain it, Black people have a hive mind and what Al thinks we all think. As others have pointed out there is MORE going on in the Black community than Matt, Fred, and John want to see/admit…they would rather just spew nonsense that helps no one. Could I go deeper…sure…but I lack the time, patience, or inclination to do so. I will tell you this: you are not going to get any deeper understanding or insight as long as you keep company with sites like these, believe the things said here hold some merit and validity, and make some of the statements you just made.
        “I’m interested in your opinion on where you think things fall through the cracks. Why this doesn’t change. I’m not being a smartass here. I would really like to hear what your viewpoint is.”
        As I said before Matt Walsh’s blog is the LAST place you should be to get answers. There is a plethora of information on the history of this country, the laws/practices that were enacted to keep people in second class status, why there is still affirmative action (and who it benefits), the destruction of the Black community by introducing drugs in the 60s (we don’t own boats of shipping yards, so who do you think put it there?), the destruction of the Black family in slavery, the Willie Lynch experiment…again it’s all there…that and more…you just have to be willing to step out of your Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Rielly, An Coulter, white privilege mind state and look.

        “I have no idea what it would be like to live in a ghetto. I would guess that most of the people who are posting here don’t either.”
        But that doesn’t stop them from sharing…and it is not about the ghetto…it is talking when you don’t know what you are talking about. It would be like a male pontificating about how women need to ___________ so they can stop getting sexually harassed, abused or whatever. Blacks spend their whole lives learning about white people. We learn white history in school, we read articles written by white people in blogs/newspaper/magazines, we watch white people on the news and listen to their viewpoints, we watch white shows and see how white people relate to each other, and we live in a country that was built on white supremacy and affords whites more rights and opportunities than what are offered to others. But “you guys” know so little about us…but that fact does not stop anyone from running off at the mouth. This blog and the replies within it are testaments of that fact. A white guy was killed, the suspects were apprehended and case is closed. But to some white people this is the sign of some make believe jihad by Black on whites and “random” and “bored” are politically correct ways to give Blacks a pass. These same whites however were silent at the injustice done Trayvon Martin. As I told Fred: if it is implausible the a man was killed out of boredom than it should be equally implausible that a grown man was so scared he exited his vehicle, followed an unarmed teenager, got in an altercation with him and had no choice but to kill him.
        “From the outside looking in it seems that there is no personal responsibility here for choices that have been made and behaviors that are acted upon. That’s all I’m saying.”
        And your attitude erodes whatever point you MAY have. You are coming across as judgmental. If you don’t know what is going on in the Black community or the steps being made in regards to trying to change things it would be much better to either find out the truth…or be quiet.

  37. I spent 28 years teaching high school in East New York, Brooklyn ( a very tough corner of a tough city ) . Most of my friends and supporters on the staff were Black. Because I did things with kids that other teachers didn’t ( field trips to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sagamore Hill….detailed drawing lessons, classical music during independent work time…You get the picture ) and because I was so successful with kids other teachers had little or no luck with, my African American friends were always singing my praises. They were invaluable to me in my conflicts with white liberals, who talked the talk, but never walked the walk. I considered the North Brooklyn ghetto my home, in spite of my political conservatism. But I must be honest about the dark side, having heard comments by Black friends and co-workers concerning violent crime and sexual license that made me hold my breath. There is widespread tolerance for unwed motherhood within the Black community; my last supervisor, a Black Assistant Principal of Special Education, was unmarried and pregnant when I retired. You can imagine the message that gave to my girls. We live in a world where the overwhelming majority of Blacks and Hispanics were born out of wedlock. Throughout the ages, the commitment to marriage generally has signified a commitment by males to take responsibility for their offspring. We are not dealing with the seed of the nascent Black middle class of the 1950’s, but a race of monsters for whom the only qualification for calling one’s self a father is the ability to have an erection. Whites and Asians, the targets of the most mindless violence committed by African American teenaged thugs, must summon up the courage to defend our loved ones and communities. Obama and Holder certainly won’t. I applaud the folks who put this site together; enough is enough. Time to start networking!

        I’ve been Black all my life so I’ve REALLY walked the walk…but then I remember that school teachers, bloggers, and their supporters know more about how to fix things in my community than I do. I am so thankful that concerned conservatives have really put a lot of thought into how to whip the Black community back into shape…to think if we had figured out years ago that all we had to do was stop being promiscuous…all those marches and speeches were for nothing! Keep up the great work! I am sure one day people will get past your arrogant know it all opinions (that you tout as facts) and see that everything you say is rooted in truth, love, and concern…how did that work out in 2012 btw?

        • mikhal skuli says:

          Exactly. The “just say no to sex” campaign has been and will continue to be just as effective as reagan’s “just say no to drugs” campaign has been and will continue to be. That being; not at all.

  38. Nonsense; that is what the liberal ruling class and race baiting Black leaders want to hear. The facts are that it is infinitely more likely for a white or Asian to become a victim of violent crime perpetrated by Blacks that the other way around, that out of wedlock pregnancy and AWOL fathers are an overwhelmingly Black phenomenon. You are as likely to hear of an Asian American raping a Black female as you are to hear of dinosaurs being found on Mars ( although in your case, you might believe it already ) . We are dealing with a race of thugs spawned by easy access to the public trough, and until the obligation of fatherhood and the necessity for women to delay making babies until in their mid twenties somehow permeates the fantasy land that is inhabited by the African- American elite, those of us who care about our loved ones had better face the facts……and prepare accordingly.

    • mikhal skuli says:

      What you should do is stop the very behavior that creates the problems you complain about.

      • Stop Black women from dropping their drawers early and often? Norplant and vasectomies should be prerequisites for any recipient of public child support, and funds for one child should be the limit of that support, but go try to make that case. Ultimately, the promiscuity of the Black female is one root of the problem, but there is no cure for that.

      You are acting as if this only happens to Black people. Facts back up that crimes are generally against those of the same race. I realize Rush presents what sounds like a good argument. I accept that Matt’s blog really fired you up…but that does not excuse ignorance, arrogance, and an inability to take factual evidence over bigoted opinion. It is obvious from your post what you think of Black people…and the sad part is that it is 2013…and the fact that you hold such a twisted thought process (and feel okay vocalizing it) is one of the primary reasons why bigotry didn’t die in the last century.

      • Racism in this country is almost exclusively a function of underachieving Blacks directed at everyone else. I only wish I could live in LaLa land and imagine, as I once did, that Blacks only needed to be made aware of the opportunities out there to achieve what East Asian ans South Asian immigrants routinely achieve. Sexual self discipline is absolutely lacking in the African American community, as is the ability to level one’s self and be honest about one’s failures. I spent most of my adulthood as a very successful special ed. teacher in one of the roughest ghettos in NYC. I cherish the respect and admiration so many Black colleagues, parents and students heaped on me. It was a thrill as an asthmatic white guy to gain the respect of so many who’s world view and politics were so fundamentally different from my own. But the cheap excuses only mounted up over the years, the out of wedlock births, sagging pants, vandalism and disruptive behavior throughout my school. I know what I have seen; I’ve seen the countless acts of violence committed by African Americans against whites for no other reason than jealousy and the inability to own up to their failures. Enough already. The term “racist” is meaningless to me now. Whites ans Asians must protect their communities; the only thing I am sure of is that the female offspring of generations of welfare dependency will continue to drop their drawers early and often. Black America is living in its own world; its about time that the rest of us bucked up and dealt with it.

        Almost every problem you lay at the feet of blacks (crime, unwed pregnancy, etc) are more directly linked to socio-economic conditions than race. Of course if you only care about stereotyping and demonizing blacks, that FACT is better ignored.

    • Sam says:

      “Racism in this country is almost exclusively a function of underachieving Blacks directed at everyone else. I only wish I could live in LaLa land and imagine, as I once did, that Blacks only needed to be made aware of the opportunities out there to achieve what East Asian ans South Asian immigrants routinely achieve. “
      So I read this sentence once…and reread it again just to make sure what I was reading. I read it again and lamented whatever incident/rationale actually makes you think this is factual, relevant, and offers some sort of “help”
      “Sexual self discipline is absolutely lacking in the African American community, as is the ability to level one’s self and be honest about one’s failures. I spent most of my adulthood as a very successful special ed. teacher in one of the roughest ghettos in NYC. I cherish the respect and admiration so many Black colleagues, parents and students heaped on me. It was a thrill as an asthmatic white guy to gain the respect of so many who’s world view and politics were so fundamentally different from my own. But the cheap excuses only mounted up over the years, the out of wedlock births, sagging pants, vandalism and disruptive behavior throughout my school. I know what I have seen; I’ve seen the countless acts of violence committed by African Americans against whites for no other reason than jealousy and the inability to own up to their failures.”
      You act as if Black people are the only ones with problems with promiscuity…in reality it is a GENERATIONAL problem that sadly affects everyone. It may come as a shocker but little white boys and even Asian ones have out of wedlock births, sag their pants, and vandalize…if you have factual evidence that white people and Asians never do such things please share.
      “Enough already. The term “racist” is meaningless to me now. Whites ans Asians must protect their communities; the only thing I am sure of is that the female offspring of generations of welfare dependency will continue to drop their drawers early and often. Black America is living in its own world; its about time that the rest of us bucked up and dealt with it.”
      If whites are going to start protecting their communities then they need to do so against each other…factual studies prove that criminals are more likely to strike the people they live close to (and thus people who look like them). It sounds like you have some “great ideas” on all the things Black people need to do to get their act together…but do you really think the attitude and manner in which you are sharing them is constructive and will facilitate change? Is that why you no longer teach?? Did you start lecturing people on what they should be doing instead of inspiring them to be better inside and out. This white overseer mentality never gain any results.
      BTW I understand why you are so keen on this white/Asian alliance looking at your pic…so I guess that explains your motives…but it did cause you to miss the havoc Asian gangs can cause (and have caused) up and down the west coast…but they are in danger right?

    The racism here is almost hilarious. Wait, no, it *is* hilarious. But, only because I have a morbid sense of humor. When Matt starts blogging about every incidence of injustice and/or violence and/or murder by white people against people of color, I will feel this entry deserves some thought. Good job provoking the racism, though, Matt. I’m sure Jesus would be proud. lol!

      I wonder whether these overtly racist responses were what the blogger was hoping for. To give him some credit, I doubt that he expected that.

        Mikhal, explain how white people are to blame for the gigantic amount of single parent black homes there are out there.

        Explain how those evil white devils are sending hidden messages to young black males, encouraging them to knock up their girlfriends and flee into the night like cowards, leaving their children without a father figure and dooming them to grow up in ghettoized apathy and sociopathy. Explain that one. Let’s play your game.

        A lot of my family suffered under Turkish oppression, so going by your school of thought, I’m going to go brutalize some random innocent Turkish people, because they started it…ya dig?

          These overtly racist responses following 250 years of slavery and 100+ years of him Crow explain all that needs to be explained about why things are the way they are. You create the very problems you complain about.

      • What you call overtly racist is simply unadulterated honesty. Every intellectual and moral standard in this country is being subverted so that we do not hurt the feelings of generations of Blacks born out of wedlock. I am sure that Matt wanted the honesty his blog engendered; he does not screen entries before they are posted. Honesty is what you call racism; so be it. Fifty years from now, nothing will change, Whites and Asians will have to use private schools so as to allow their children to have a safe environment with real academic standards. White and Asian racism is not the problem; our tolerance for the animalistic behavior of Black youth is.

      • Sam says:

        What you call unadulterated honesty is simply misguided, misinformed, and tragic bigotry. In the large scheme of things…if people like you (or those that think worse than you) ever get power do you think they’ll let you keep your wife? She’s a mud person as far as they are concerned…and you are contaminated for being with her. You can’t play both sides from the middle…either be a bigot and marry a WASP or put your foolishness to bed and see there is good and bad in every person…I mean if I really wanted I can bring up some of my wonderful white family member who have problems taking care of their kids, graduating from school, holding down employment, breaking up their families by abandoning them, and just plain personify every charge you claim is specific to Black people….I bet you Asian wife could name a few of her folks as well.
        “Every intellectual and moral standard in this country is being subverted so that we do not hurt the feelings of generations of Blacks born out of wedlock.”
        You know EVERY single Black person…and that they were all born out of wedlock…were you hiding in the closet while all these people were getting it on? Again, children of all backgrounds are born out of wedlock…and they run the entire spectrum. Please present the proof the backs up such a claim.
        “I am sure that Matt wanted the honesty his blog engendered; he does not screen entries before they are posted. Honesty is what you call racism; so be it.

        I am much more confident that Matt wanted to use his blog to vent bigoted feelings and get accolades from like-minded sycophants who would rather tout opinion as fact. Fifty years from now any reconciliation and togetherness that could be a reality might possibly be just as far off as it is now. Not because of this “black assault of promiscuity and mind control by King Al…but because people like you keep holding on to feelings that should have stayed in the 1900s and you take every opportunity to express them under the guise of “honestly” and “standing up for yourself.”

    “Edwards and Luna are black, Lane was white. Jones is also white, which was a big relief to the progressive race hustlers who are desperate to keep up the facade that black on white violence is never, ever, ever motivated by racism.”

    Actually Michael Jones is HALF white and HALF black. Early pictures of him in Australian news agency stories unmistakably depicted him as black, while his mug shot showed him fair skinned. So in reality, Chris Lane was shot by three BLACK teenagers, not two Africans and an Anglo. Saying that Jones is “white” is akin to claiming that Obama is “white”…which would be a true statement, but a reality that the mainstream media and American popular culture ignore.

Every school; standard and every civil service exam must now be watered down so that a racial quota can be used. Black West Indians immigrate here in droves; Why not to Africa or another West Indian country if we are all so bad? Its time to face reality and prevent the cancer from doing more damage. By the way guys, have you ever spoken to an Indo-Guyanese immigrant? Their disdain/ hatred for their African neighbors sounds much like Southern Whites from the 1880’s….and for good reason. Everyone is responsible for the debasing of Black civil society except Blacks. Mob rule, mob violence, pregnant 14 year olds and cheap excuses. And by the way Sam, instead of quoting me, why not take Lisa’s advice and express an original thought?

      @John
      “Sam and Skulli seem to think that I am telling Blacks what to do.”
      You are attempting to do so by your “insightful” and “helpful” tips on Black promiscuity and how if we would just stay out of bed and get to work the community would be better. But I’ll bite…IF you aren’t telling Blacks what to do…what are you doing? Musing? Observing? Commenting? Sharing your ideas to encourage dialogue? Rambling in cantankerous old age? Waxing poetic? What is it?? No one asked for your insight yet you freely gave it. To what ends did you feel what you had to offer would be helpful and meaningful in any shape, form, or fashion?
      “ Nothing can be further from the case; the situation is hopeless, as there is no way to stop the train that unwed motherhood that easy access to the public trough has fostered.”
      And see…you denied it and then went right back to type and started doing it again. If you aren’t trying to tell Black people what they should do then Matt’s blog is a bastion of rationale, well researched factual thought.
      “Whites and Asians need to protect their communities and loved ones from the cancer white apologists created.

      That’s how it is huh? Listen, the fact that you got yellow fever doesn’t excuse the stupidity and hypocrisy of your statement(s). Do you know everyone? Am I typing this from the corner (hang on the cops is rolling by lol)? Do you know my educational pedigree? If not then your “everyone” assessment flies right out of the window. It takes a lot of audacity to wantonly assign such traits to EVERYONE (especially when you don’t know much less have met everyone). BTW I thought hookers had the monopoly on corners and last I checked they ran every shade, hue, color, and race (that includes you beloved white and Asian).
      “ Every school; standard and every civil service exam must now be watered down so that a racial quota can be used. Black West Indians immigrate here in droves; Why not to Africa or another West Indian country if we are all so bad? Its time to face reality and prevent the cancer from doing more damage.”
      Again with the generalizations…I would have thought your years teaching (despite not learning anything) would have shown the folly of such attitude. If you have proof of this share…so far Matt and Fred haven’t done so. If what you say is true than facts will back it up. If not it’s just another opinion and you know the saying about those…
      “And by the way Sam, instead of quoting me, why not take Lisa’s advice and express an original thought?”
      If you don’t like me picking apart your foolishness than be smart enough not to foolish things.

      And here lies the root of your “argument” for what is wrong in the Black community…promiscuity. It has already been pointed out that such behavior is generational and not exclusive to just the Black community…but you keep bringing it back up. If it was a simple as “getting out of the bed and getting into the workforce” you would be hailed as a genius. But it is not…and for you to boil it down to such a simple (but still wrong) problem highlights that you don’t know what you are talking about.

      Chuckling at “monkey music”…of course I’m sure you aren’t referring to the same music aped (pun intended) by Elvis, The Rolling Stones, and many other white artists? Because we all know white people are better than that and are world renowned for their persistent ability to create wholly original pieces of music with no input or influence from anyone else…

      • “It has already been pointed out that such behavior is generational and not exclusive to just the Black community.”

        70+% illegitimacy rate is hardly generational. It is endemic to the black community exclusively. Not to worry. Hispanics are catching up fast while whites lag behind them. They’ll catch up soon, and we will be a country of “adults” raised without fathers. You’re going to love it, Sam. The whole country will soon be one giant Petri dish of pathalogues, and we have scoffers and apologists like you to thank for it.

        So according to crispenrobles…7 out of 10 are illegitimate, Latinos are in second, and whites “lag behind” aka are primarily from two person homes. And these phenomena of the country “falling apart” will be the fault of people like me. But I ask: what are you doing…I mean other than getting all fired up on Matt Walsh’s blog? What contribution have you presented that seeks to reconcile differences, seeks to see this as a universal problem (because despite what you and John claim it is a universal problem), and foster teamwork/involvement from men of all walks of life? I mean it’s real easy to type conservative rant after conservative rant…it’s a whole different thing to actually get involved and make a positive difference.

        • Anything someone writes that you don’t like is a “rant,” is that it, Sam? And I’m hardly fired up. Just sitting here listening to the wife jabber on the phone. I don’t know what you mean about reconciling differences. Give me an example. Why would I want to reconcile differences? What differences? Differences about what and between whom? I am a sinner saved by grace. If the truth be told, I deserve to be cast into hell for my ingratitude to God, for my ignoring his commandments, my arrogance and unkindness and for often failing to seek his glory. I can only say that I never made babies and then abandoned them. Every child deserves and needs a mother and a father. However, it seems we live in a country that hates children. We kill them in the womb. We sexualize them as soon as possible. We consider having them a bother. We do not protect their innocence. I’m done and must move on. Ciao.

    Reblogged this on mr dex and commented:
    I came across this post when I subscribed to your blog today after being forwarded your piece about the mom in the grocery store, a great piece by the way.
    Unless my phone is glitching, it appears as if maybe this topic was too taboo for anyone else to comment on, but I feel the need to open my mouth and say i completely agree with you on this. There has been a huge escalation of violent race related crimes over the years, perpetrated by both black and white. The difference is that when committed by a black individual or group, it is heavily coated in sugar, or swept under a rug made of excuses up to and including poverty, social inequality, lack of proper education, and yes…even slavery….still……still….
    Anyways, these heinous crimes, no matter whom they are committed by, need to be classified as what they truly are…outlandish, violent, depraved and senseless racist acts perpetrated by ignorant hatemongering thugs. Plain and simple, there’s no excuse, for any color.
    I was raised below the poverty line, lived in some poor areas, was exposed to violence, drugs, and my family tree consists of a great deal of ignorant and intolerant bigots,and while I was no angel by any definition of the word, I chose not to follow in those steps of senseless violence and hatemongering . Quite the opposite actually, I have a beautiful 12 year old daughter…. With a black woman. Much to the dismay of her grandmother….
    Anyways, as i probably appear to be rambling, I’ll finish with saying that these crimes should be treated equal and ‘if you brag about ‘knocking out 5 woods’ and then kill a ‘wood’ in cold blood, then the truth is, it’s a damn hate crime. That’s the truth, and truth is truth, no matter what color it’s in…..

    • mikhal skuli says:

      Less than a year before, 2 blacks were killed and 5 injured in a random shooting by a white and a native American in a black neighborhood in Tulsa. The blogger did not go ballistic about that at the time and fails to even mention it in his ridiculous “race war” blog. Discussing and addressing violence isn’t the problem, but the bloggers and many others’ focus on only one side of the issue is a problem.

But I have to admit that I am terrified that I will be randomly attacked one of these days because they are angry and I am white. Here’s the thing: our country loves them. Our country is good to them. Our country gives them food stamps and welfare and scholarships and acquits them of heinous, heinous crimes. But African Americans can’t forget what happened to their fathers’ fathers in this country. This is folly. You can’t make an innocent 20-something couple pay today for what a plantation owner did hundreds of years ago. It’s time to own up, take some responsibility, and move on.

      I continued to be amazed that here we are in 2013 and there are still people who act as if what Matt is saying is some revelation and a proper diagnosis of the “problem.” I am thankful that you want to be “friends.” I wonder; has your heart been equally convicted at the white on white, black on black, or white on black crimes or just black on white?
      “I have no ill will toward them. But I have to admit that I am terrified that I will be randomly attacked one of these days because they are angry and I am white.”
      Statistically you have a higher chance of being attacked by the people you have the most contact with. Thus if your social circle is primarily white, you are more apt to be the victim of white on white crime. Most crimes are committed by people known by the victim or those who live in the vicinity of their victim. It is very tragic that you “are terrified” of being attacked by a Black person (and it sounds like you have little contact with them) but lackadaisical in regards to the dangers you might face from other whites. While Matt and his posse have argued otherwise…it was factually illustrated (and confessed by the teens) that the murders were not racially based and were random and due to boredom. The teens were on their way to murder a black person when they were apprehended. As I pointed out previously (which no one on this site could address) if you find that rationale implausible then I hope you also find Zimmerman’s rationale that he got out of his truck, followed an unarmed teen, got into an altercation with him, and then killed him because he was “scared” equally implausible.
      Here’s the thing: our country loves them.
      Sorry our country does not…if that where the case there would be no Matt Walsh blog or people like you who are “terrified” of getting attacked.
      “Our country is good to them.”
      Factual history (as current as 2013) disagrees with you.
      “Our country gives them food stamps and welfare and scholarships and acquits them of heinous, heinous crimes.”
      Black people are not the only ones who get food stamps…factually MORE white people receive food stamps than Black people. You are also dismissing those in the military who are on government assistance, and those hit hard by the recession from all economic, social, and racial backgrounds. The country does not give Blacks scholarships just for being Black…people have to earn them. I realize John in all his wisdom and experience in the Black community says otherwise…but one cannot get a scholarship if they spend all day in bed procreating. Also, Blacks are factually convicted more often and receive harsher sentences than whites.
      “But African Americans can’t forget what happened to their fathers’ fathers in this country. This is folly.”
      I’ll tell you what, when something generational and heinous happens to you…show us how to suck it up and press. As a matter of fact we should also stop talking about 9-11, Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, The Holocaust, Pearl Harbor, The Alamo, The Southern loss in the fight for state’s right (keep those flags in the closet), the 2012 Republican loss, Bengazi, and every other event we keep alive to remember the past so we don’t forget it (and repeat it). You should run with that idea and tell everyone that when something happens they should just forget what happened and live in the now….think how much money we would save on holidays and how thin our history books would be. Great idea!!
      “You can’t make an innocent 20-something couple pay today for what a plantation owner did hundreds of years ago.”
      Who’s making you pay? Heck we can’t even talk about slavery without someone pulling out the “well I didn’t own slaves and you aren’t a slave so what’s your prob?” foolishness. And it wasn’t a “couple of hundred years ago” It hasn’t even been two centuries and that is not factoring in Jim Crow and the institutional racism that runs up and down the spine of this country that still exists even today.
      “It’s time to own up, take some responsibility, and move on.”
      Truer words have never been so ironically spoken…
      “Blacks are not the only oppressed people group.”
      We never said we were…but I will tell you who is NOT oppressed…white people as a whole and white men in general no matter how much they cry they are
      “But instead of remembering it with honor, dignity, grace – they remember it with hate and evil.”
      Again Lane wasn’t murdered because he was white…he was murdered because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Every race has the capacity for hate and evil….white America has the law and power behind most of theirs.
      “ I want no part of that.”
      Good thing you aren’t like John and dead set on telling us what we need to do to fix ourselves…I’d rather you want “no part of that” than stand around and say all the things that are wrong in the Black community (when it is obvious you have no idea what you are talking about).

      • Zimmerman was on his way back to his vehicle when he was attacked.

      • Sam says:

        @crispenrobles

        So Zimmerman…full of fear yet armed, got out of his car (when he had no reason to do so and was told by police to cease his endeavors) walked around a bit and as his fear truly began to overtake him was walking back to his vehicle and he was then attacked by an unarmed teen who had no reason to engage Zimmerman. Or was it Zimmerman was walking and Martin jumped out from a nonexistent bush and attacked him? Or was it Martin approached Zimmerman and asked him if he had a problem and then told him he had one and attacked him? Again if it is implausible the that Lane was killed by a random act of violence then it should be equally implausible that any story Zimmerman laid out is factual and credible.

        • You don’t make much sense. You just like to argue. It’s illogical to say, “Full of fear yet armed.” However, it does make sense to say, “Armed yet full of fear,” meaning that although he was armed, he was still full of fear. In the phone conversation between the police and Zimmerman, the police tell Zimmerman to go back to his car. He says okay and is walking back to his vehicle when he is violently attacked by Martin. Martin is on top of him, slamming his head into the concrete. Zimmerman should have said to himself, “300 years of slavery. I deserve it.” Then he could have been killed or been too brain-damaged to talk, Martin could have gotten away, and you wouldn’t be trolling for a fight.

        That was Zimmerman’s defense! He had “no choice” but to kill Martin because he was afraid for his life/ angry that “those people” kept getting away/ or he was not mentally capable of following instructions. He WAS armed, was fearful (which did not stop him from exiting his vehicle and looking for Martin; when that happens in scary movies most of us shake our heads at the person because we know what is going to happen) and apparently despite being older he was (according to his story) attacked/baited into a fight where his fear cause him to kill and unarmed teen. Like I keep saying, if it is implausible (which means you don’t believe it) that teens killed a white man because they were bored and you are outraged , then it should be equally implausible that the death of Trayvon Martin was fearful self-defense (meaning you don’t believe Zimmerman told the full truth and bears more responsibility that what he currently has). If you blog/are outraged about one…you should be blogging/ be outraged at the other. If not you are a hypocrite and visibly showing bias.

        “In the phone conversation between the police and Zimmerman, the police tell Zimmerman to go back to his car. He says okay and is walking back to his vehicle when he is violently attacked by Martin. Martin is on top of him, slamming his head into the concrete.”
        You were there? You know this is exactly how this happened? It sounds more like you believe the story of the only person left standing said what happened…who would stand to go on trial for killing an unarmed person it was unjustified murder (thus I am sure he had NO reason to lie). No one knows what happened. It is obvious something did…but who truly started the situation is something we will never know. I do know that it is a sad day when a grown man is baited into a fight by a teen. It is also sad that in said fight the grown man engaged in he resorted to deadly force when he should have never been in the situation to begin with. But the courts ruled in his favor…where is the blog of outrage? In the Lane case it was ruled not racially motivated by the investigators and the teens themselves admitted it wasn’t yet Matt wrote a blog that insinuates the court is lying and it really was “war on white people by savage Blacks” …why is the word of court officials’ gospel in one but suspect in the other? Hypocrisy

        “Zimmerman should have said to himself, “300 years of slavery. I deserve it.” Then he could have been killed or been too brain-damaged to talk, Martin could have gotten away, and you wouldn’t be trolling for a fight.”
        Martin had no reason to initiate anything…you forget Zimmerman followed him, got out of his car, and basically mad a nuisance of himself in such a manner that would have alarmed most people. Zimmerman started the sad chain of events. In truth had this sad excuse for social criticism not been authored, made public, and commented on by people who have no idea what they are talking about (such as yourself) I wouldn’t be inclined to respond back.

      “Our country is good to them” (blacks). WTF??!!. Compared to whites, blacks have shorter life expectancy, higher infant mortality, lower income, less wealth, less educational attainment, higher incarceration rates for the same crimes and are worse off on every socio-economic measure in US.

  47. How about compared to blacks living in, say, Uganda? Because a certain group of people don’t take care of themselves, don’t attend school because it would be “acting white” doesn’t necessarily mean their country hasn’t been good to them. Why don’t you go to the nearest hospital and proclaim to the sick that their country hasn’t been good to them. This country certainly has been good to you. Too good, apparently. You sound like a spoiled little brat.

      SMH…

      So you know that every Black person doesn’t go to school or take care of themselves? I’ve seen some pretty ashy white folks in my time but if you say so! BTW you are one of the last people on this planet to have the credibility regarding how this country has treated others. If you knew what you were talking about you wouldn’t say many of the things you have…but since you say them it is blatantly obvious (like John and Matt) you don’t know what you are talking about…you are stating opinions and holding them up as facts.

        Thanks. All I really wanted is for you to come out of your neoracist double talk and say you think blacks are inferior. Now we don’t have to guess about your actual beliefs.

      • I hesitate to say this, Sam, because you seem like such a swell guy, but Lordy you’re stupid. Either that or you got a career as a stand-up comedian. You’re funny. Or stupid. Maybe both?

        Man that stings, all I ever wanted was crispenrobles approval….

    Hate crime and violence is all over the country. Just google White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America. http://whitegirlbleedalot.com/. It’s about hate crimes, racial crimes, mob violence, violence against gays.. etc. It’s a collection of violence mostly have videos. You might not believe it but it’s really happening. So scary. I think there’s more than 50 cities.
