Not much as changed with clubs since I stopped going. After midnight, people are drunk and full of liquid courage. Your chances of being in a fight or a shooting skyrocket.

Well, it only goes to prove my earlier point where blacks from the suburb run back to the city when they want to mingle. They don't want to burn their bridges or be considered an Uncle Tom of any sorts.

I'm only going by what the story said. It made no mention of him working. And Mapleman and I were having a discussion a few weeks ago about blacks who move to the burbs and don't break of their connection with inner-city family and friends. That's what I meant by the comment. So if you don't understand the conversation, you shut the F up.

The thing is, read the papers and watch the tv news and see what's happening. All I mostly see are stories on blacks killing people. If a black kills a white or any other race, it's no big deal. But if a black is killed by a white cop because the black was shooting at people, everyone from that black's whole family,(except the father who no one knows who it is), to Al Sharpton will be on the tv news, crying about how their boy was trying so hard to turn his life around. Well, he did good! He turned his life from a criminal to something more useful, fertilizer.

Because whites are the majority of people in this country. Blacks are only 13%, yet have a larger percentage of murders and deaths.

Historically, there isn't a race that can compare to the violence whites have perpetrated. No other race on the planet has wiped out whole ethnic groups of people. When is the last time you've witnessed a Native American family out and about? lol

That said, there currently is an abnormal amount of violence in the black community. While some of it is due to the racist ways of the U.S., a large part of it could be done away with if the black community would take more personal responsibility.

This here article has nothing to do with people coming from the suburbs and coming to the inner city to mingle....This here man that got killed was a father to two and he was out trying to enjoy himself...People are so naive to the fact...He lost his life due to ignorance and that is very sad....I just got done watching the first 48hrs and seen the video going back to that tragedy...It is very sad to see...that he lost his life over nothing...Also he wanted to make a difference in this cruel world....This man wanted to be a police officer to change the ways of the street...I mean this article was about him but when I read some of these comments some people got way off of subject....Let's stick to the topic...a father of two...a son...and friend/best friend.../relative to someone was killed for no reason...THIS HERE SHOULD BE A WAKE UP CALL TO SOME PEOPLE....BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU ARE OUT THERE...YOUR INTENTIONS MAY BE GOOD BUT SOMEONE ELSE'S MAYN'T BE....I WANT YO SEND MY CONDOLENCES TO THE SHANNON FAMILY....MAY THE GOOD LORD HEAL YOUR PAIN...AND I WILL BE PRAYING FOR THIS FAMILY....TAKE CARE AND GOD BLESS!!!

We been trained by you black people to be racists because that's what you are. For instance, my neighbor's kids ransack my yard on a daily basis. They play that rap shxt loud all day long and at night. Their friends and relatives visit them at all hours of the day and night, throwing cigarette butts into my yard and food wrappers. They drive onto my lawn when they miss their driveway and let their pit bull crap in my yard without cleaning it up. And then they wonder why 'I don't get along with them'!

Have you watched the tv news lately? Every day some black is killing someone. A couple months ago, two guys that were brothers were shooting at each other and hit a little girl. Blacks don't care where the bullets go. If they hit some one innocent, oh well, shouldn't have been standing there. Your fault. And when they get caught by the PO-lice, and they're crying, it's not because they killed someone, it's because they got caught!

And you ever notice how when one kills someone and there's 900 witnesses, the killer still says, "Ah didnts doo NUTTIN!" They never take responsibility for their actions. And neither do the parents. It's always 'Not MAH keedz!"

Yeah, blacks and whites don't get along because when you move into an all white neighborhood, crime goes up but you think that's normal. We're not used to having our homes broken into or robbed as we walk down the street or sucker punched by blacks playing that knock out game.(And by the way, when ever a black hits a white person, and the white person pulls out a gun and shoots the black, that's not fair to you blacks now, is it?)

So maybe one day 200 years from now when you blacks learn to act like humans instead of some wild animals from the jungle that your ancestors came from, you'll fit in better. So don't blame the whites for your problems. Act human and it'll get you farther.

I agree with you, Sig. I have goofy neighbors like you have too. They do the strangest things. Mine always wash their cars in the same spot in their drive and then the water washes all their top soil out of the side of their house and down their drive. Then they walk through it and get mud all over the rest of their drive and probably in their house too. The one day after washing two cars, they stood there staring at the mud in their drive, just staring at it for a while, as if they were trying to figure out where it came from. lol
