Why do so many of them think violence is the answer, I know many of you have probably seen the fight starring a young girl named Sharkeisha against shay and the girl blatantly attacked the other young girl going as far as kicking her in the face, it's truly sad that we applaud such boisterous behavior, when we should be educating young people on expressing their emotions constructively. It's truly sad to see young people getting assault charges before getting a diploma.

Very nicely said, brownskin_beauty. I honestly feel like it is media. Our souls our entangled of materialistic value and popularity. Displaying such tomfoolery is what makes most people likable. By claiming who the strongest is, who can make who look like a fool. I mean, have you listened to the music today? Completely revolting. The artists are so violent and self-preserved that they don't care about education, just popularity and social acceptance.

Most of the time troubled kids come from dysfunctional families.

I agree completely. People don't value conflict/resolution and coping skills like they should. Self- control and walking away from a fight should be a virtue all parents should teach their children. Many people even walk around hoping to start a fight because they just want someone to take their anger out on, a punching bag.

And as Jesuspeaceandlove said, we live in a culture that glorifies violence. Combine that with our obsession with fame, and we have these kids actually thinking it's COOL to show it off to their friends and post it on you tube for the world to see.

So sad..I think maybe the question is why are these kids so angry? Mary M may have a point about the dysfunctional families.

the only type violence I support is black on white violence because it's smart. the more whites we run out of the country the more room blacks have to build and grow. we have the African community, taking over the white community now.

African Americans rely on white people too much. everything white people tell you to do you do it and put pressure on each other to do it too. African Americans wasn't interested in complaining about thugs into whites started complaining about it. African Americans rely on white people to patrol their communities and the protect their businesses in the community. that is inferior to the white race because you basically let them lead everything and even your communities.

The only reason whites even patrol the African American community is that the violence don't spread into their communities. the only reason why whites continue to try and police Detroit is so that the violence don't spread out of it. whites don't care about yall foreal. The only you should worry about is black on black violence and black on white violence.

True, as well as most Black men kill each other under age 30 years which is the leading cause of Death in Black males! lmao

Well Black men say " they don't need Fathers" or they don't count like you said but you act like a woman!
