Funny corny, the only time you start blabbing is the rare case when a White person loses it and shoots a Black. You never say anything when it is the opposite and this happens so often that it never makes national headlines and about half the time not even the local news and then race is not mention most of the time.

Let it go we all know this happens occasionally but in a ratio of about a hundred to one compared to a White getting shot by a Black. Geez. Give us a break. Thank you very much
No white guilt here....

I will agree that most black on white crime never makes the news...... and I think that is wrong.
And I also think it is wrong that a lot of black folks today try to portray themselves as victims of the white man...
Anyhow.... just thought it would make an interesting thread......and it has..... got your goat up.....lol
Its not just a black thing. I know some pretty sorry white people. Im related to some of them unfortunately.
They dont have to be pimps or black or red or brown or yellow to have the entitlement mentality that you are refering to. And yes, I have met white pimps. And I wouldnt have gone over for thanksgiving if asked. They'd rob me blind and then ask what I brought them for dinner.
A couple of posts have been removed. A frank discussion is fine; but the use of racist terminology, parts of such terminology, or using symbols or other means to get around the robo-filter is not allowed here. When it's very clear what prohibited word you're trying to use, that's crossing the line. Racism is very much frowned upon by the site management.
From my own thoughts...be careful about using the overly broad brushes. There are good and bad in all races/skin colors. I live in an area where I see human trash with both black and white skin. No one race or group has an exclusive on being wothless and sorry.
Anyhow.... nothing justifys the death of this young man.....
Cut down in his youth by a drunken man who wouldnt have even opened his mouth had he not had the gun in his glovebox and some liquid courage down his throat.
Think about it..... shotgun comes up to the window of the car beside you...... If that was me I would have kept crawling past the glovebox and out the other side of the car....
But old mike here reaches over....gets the gun out of the glovebox.....unholsters......and he may have even said that he loaded it..... so that would entail slamming a mag in and cocking it...... and then turns and then starts firing blindly.
Plenty of time for the shotgun wielding thugs to realize what is happening and get off a shot into this guys back.
The important thing here is how this all began...... young men...in a public parking lot.....blasting music like all the kids do......and this guy ends up killing one of them over it instead of just rolling up his window....or finding another space..... and just doing like millions of other americans do each day..... put up with it for a couple of minutes and then go on about your business.
With all due respect corny IMHO you bear some of the responsibility here for this thread going South. Just starting it was all it took. This was a racially charged incident with the emotions running high. It was bound to go off the track. I mean who hasn't been blown away by some AH driving by destroying our ears drums with some horrible music that he uses as an attack on our state of well being.
Then the guy yells to shut it off and they are "offended" and someone may or may not have pointed a gun at the dude. Now it becomes racial. I know coming from me this may seem increduleous especially since I got sucked into to the discussion here such as it was but this probably should have been left alone. Thank you, thank you very much
I apologize for violating the board rules regarding the N-word. If you knew me, you would know I'm not a racist. But it is very hard to know what somebody is trying to say on an internet forum as you are not able to look them in the eye or see their body language or the tone of their voice. For some reason there is a great deal of paranoia in our culture about using this word. I think it is just exploited by the left for a political power grab. The left couldn't care less about the black community. Even Jessie Jackson, when he didn't think his microphone was on said, "He doesn't like #######".
But anyway, I submit myself to the moderators of this board. I am just a guest here. I understand that the political powers that be might even try to attack the owners of the site because of said word. I will watch myself, and it will not happen again. Thank you, thank you very much.
Just trying to put a thread up that was interesting Glenn.... these things get old after a couple of weeks.
Anyhow.... nothing racial about this..... kids in a car...loud music in the convienience store parking lot.... No big deal to 99.999999999 percent of the people going to the store that night.....
Id say if it were a gang of hispanics or white boys we would still have a dead child on our hands.
after reading some of this crap I have to roll my eyes.
It does not matter what the kids where doing when Davis decided to pull his weapon. They where, by ALL ACCOUNTS AND WITNESSES, minding there own business.
There is only one thing that concerns me, WHY DID DAVIS RUN after the fact?
IF ( and a big **IF**) there was a shotgun involved, why did he run? The idiot just gave, whoever had the shotgun, time to get rid of it. He should have stood his ground, called police himself and reported the incident.
But he ran, HUGE, GIGANTIC MISTAKE.
This guy is going down for murder.
Now, having said that, I understand where he was coming from. It drives me crazy when I pull into a gas station and some dumb:censored: pulls in with there radio blasting crap music, they leave the windows and doors open and walk inside to pay for there gas. I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR IT, it's rude and uncalled for. I would LOVE to walk over there, tear the radio out of the dash and when the jerk comes back, hand it to him and say "here, this was making a terrible noise, I fixed it for you". but, common sense and the ability to drive away take over, besides "they" are not a threat to me, so I shrug my shoulders and go away.
Funny you are very different. Where did you get your "statistics"? It sure is a big deal to me if someone blasted my eardrums like that. It is against the law in a lot of big cities to do that. Even in Atlanta you can get arrested for making a noise (radio, boom box, etc.) loud enough to hear it outside of the person listening to it. Thank you very much
