Looks like the ghetto has moved to Windemere. As Realist said, you can take the thug out of the ghetto, but not the ghetto out of the thug. These guys have enough money they could modify their behavior very easily if they wanted to. The problem they like being thugs...is that cultural too, so the rest of us just need to accept it. I think not.

Good post!

This is one of the reasons that I do not support or watch professional basketball or football any longer. Stop paying these idiots MILLIONS of dollars to dribble a ball.
DeShawn needs to move to Pine Hills or Parramore where his behavior is acceptable.
Ummm...I'll look into it further but I think this type of behavior isn't acceptable anywhere...

It evidently is in Pine Hills and Parramore or the citizens there wouldn't stand for it. You can clean up your own yard. It might take a lot of work or it might take a long time. It might even be dangerous, but you can do it. That is, if you really want to bad enough.

The Africans in this country have no moral guidance and no shame. This is the reason why they are a joke to the Asians, Whites and every other race. You can't get through to an idot mentality. Africans think that intimadation and violence is something to be proud of? Character
and intelligence is the last thing anyone from that comunity embraces.

Stevenson is as talented at basketball as Elmer Fudd is at hunting rabbits... I was so glad he left Orlando...I'm disapointed to hear that he's still around. I hope the NBA takes some strict action against this thug wanna be...

i disagreed with the Wrestler part of his post, but he's right. Black people claim that they want to do away with racisim, but they are the first ones to play the race card, especially if it gets them out of trouble or benefits them in anyway.

If your going to cry about your neighborhood or how people treat you. Then do something about it. I don't respect cowards like that. They decide how they live and act not white people. They are just smart enough to not live that lifestyle.

Okay,
Leave him alone. Seriously, all the blogs and the articles are unnecessary and most are inappropriate. From saying the man that was shot was a pimp, to trying to find a way to tie my big cousin into the shooting. The man was sleep. The majority of the articles say it so stop trying to get him involved. Just because an incident occurs in front of his house doesn't mean he was involved... See I'm on the other side of the world and when people get shot out here no one cares, it doesnt matter whose house it was in front of. Come on, get off the idea of him being involved... guess he was a witness... WHAT was he dreaming about it

Dear, UCFGrad. My blog was authored with my tongue firmly in my cheek. In other words, I was being facetious. While I am sure that there are persons who believe what I wrote, I am not one of those persons. I am a former prosecutor who does not feel constrained by strictures of being "politically correct". I, therefore declare that Black Americans - young males in particular, ARE responsible for perpetrating the majority of violent crime in the United States, that such violence is part and parcel of the ridiculous culture that worships all that is unimportant - extraneous cash, luxury cars, jewelry and women of extremely dubious moral value - a culture that these young people not only embrace, but enjoy acting out, and that when they are caught they refuse to be accountable for their actions, and, instead, play the race card. So, I speak from lots of personal experience. It's all so obnoxiously ridiculous.
You sir or maam, have my vote for President...and I am a black, American. Bring back personal responsibility!!

SOME black people play the race card, but not all of us. Please don't lump all of us in that boat. I am as sick to death of the race card as anyone. Bring back personal responsibility!
