...Hold your mental tongue pard'ner, It's obvious to notice all the racialy motivated comments on this topix website. So, As "OMG, And Myself had taken notice was there weren't any racist remarks poluting this particular topic. But again, as I said earlier; "Just give it time"... Soon, this whole page will be chalk-full of racial slurs, and nasty comments. So please get some help pulling that head of yours out of your ass before typing your replies...
so, I guess you were right about giving them time to show up :)...

in response to whatever his name was that made his little comment, if you would open YOUR eyes, you would clearly see that people of every race and background commit all sorts of crimes. Only ignorant people who have their eyes closed seem to try and place crime within certain racial lines, which is not only wrong but also stupid.
If you really gave a crap about the real problem of crime (which clearly you don't, you just want to spew you hatred), then you would be actively trying to find a solution to the problem rather than trying to place blame...

*One thing I do want to ask, however, is: How come people like you are so quick to jump on these discussion boards to talk about how horrible hispanics and blacks are when we do something, but then when a white person does something, like rape a child, or murder their entire family, or have a meth lab in a house full of children, NOBODY has ANYTHING negative to say???? Does that mean that you approve of rape and murder, and drugs, as long as your race is doing it????....interesting.

AND DONT FORGET, YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT TOO!(unless you are Native American)

It seems to me like you are an instigator. Do you sit here and wait for someone to comment so you can spew out your racist remarks? Did it ever occur to you that no one commented on this story because this person is not worth talking about? It doesn't matter what race he was, he was a cold blooded murderer. You tell people to find a solution to the problem. How can anyone find a solution when the problem is not even being acknowledged? Yes, crime happens in every race you are right about that, but you also need to realize what people see is what forms thier opinion. When you see neighborhoods that are crime infested and those areas are populated by certain races then yes people do form opinions based on race. I'm not saying it is right I'm just saying it's a reality. Why don't you tell us how YOU are actively trying to find a solution to the problem. It seems like you like to point the finger at others but you need to take a look in the mirror because your comments are racist as well. To assume that the person you commented too earlier is white, only confirms it. It is people like you that keeps racism alive.

P.S. You are not an immigrant if you are born here. Get your facts straight before you go running you mouth again.

if most crimes were commited by minorities; the paper would be full of mug shots of 18~50 year old white males... hmm - that doesn't seem to be the case.

It's easy to sit back on one's laurels and point fingers at who is responsible for crime and what demographic plays a part in it or what social environments are most likely to breed crime. We are all responsible for crime in this country because most of us turn a blind eye to it unless it directly impacts our homes or our families. Certainly, we are quick to get on the internet and start pouring out our anonymous opinions.. but do we take the time and invest it into our communities? Do we try working with troubled teens to lead them down a different path? Do we invest back into our schools to allow children the right to a good education? Or do we shut down the computer and feel oh so self-righteous about how well we just told off some stranger. The story is tragic because a life was lost. The story is tragic because someone else took it. The story is tragic because it happens every day and the resulting conversation consists of who is the most racial or who can spout the most philosophical. Invest back into your communities. Instead of wasting your time telling people how wrong their opinions are, go check out your local government's website and see where you can start to make a DIFFERENCE so that the same thing does not happen to your child, your brother, your cousin... your friend.
I'm just sayin...

I was not instigating, but simply stating my observation that no one had said anything YET, because every time i log on to this thing all i read are closed minded comments blaming hispanics for EVERY problem or crime. People who only care to comment on how everything would be so much better if 'they' were all gone...i'm sorry but that just seems wrong. America was supposed to be this 'Land of Opportunity' for EVERYONE, not just for white folks...So yeah it bugs the crap out of me when white people act like they are the only ones who have a right to be here.

Many, many races of people have come here to make a better life for themselves, and I dont think its right for anyone to say an entire race should have to leave based on the crimes or stupid actions of the few who choose to do wrong.

And, what I mean by 'IMMIGRANT' is the fact that we all DESENDED from people who EMMIGRATED to the US at some point. But if we go by your statement, then all of these gangbangers who are of hispanic descent whom everyone loves to say should leave, are just as entitled to be here as 'johnny' and 'kevin' because they were born here too, its their parents or grandparents who emmigrated here from latin countries. Thanks for clarifying that for me though, I'll be sure to point that out the next time I see any "IMMIGRANTS SHOULD LEAVE" comments on this forum.:)

Oh and i'm not doing a damn thing to fix the crime problems because I know that crime is a fact of life and there will always be criminals no matter what anyone does...All I worry about is being the best person who I can be, trying to treat my fellow man as best I can, and providing my children with the tools to hopefully steer away from crime themselves...sorry but its the truth

OH and by the way I'm not racist in the least, I have friends and loved ones of all races, and I treat everyone the same, I dont prejudge anyone based on where they come from. I get to know people for who they are before I dare to pass judgement on them, if I treat anyone like crap, its because of who they are as a person, not where they are from, umkey?

Like I said before, I firmly believe that there are P.O.S. in every race

By Tamara Graham of The Washington Times:

The MS-13s plan to attack some neighborhoods on a hot humid night to terrorize the areas and to attack law enforcement and newscasters on the street corners this spring and summer. A Latino street gang waged a racist campaign to eliminate the city's black residents through attempted murders and other crimes, according to federal racketeering indictments unsealed Thursday. Five indictments charged a total of 147 members and associates of the Varrio Hawaiian Gardens gang working with MS-13, and federal and local agencies arrested 63 of them by early Thursday, U.S. Attorney Thomas P. O'Brien said at a news conference. Another 35 defendants were already in custody on unrelated charges. Weapons and drugs worth more than $1 million also were seized in what O'Brien called "the largest gang takedown in United States history." The indictments detail attempted murder, kidnapping, firearms, narcotics and other charges related to attacks by the gang, which is predominantly Latino and mainly operates in Hawaiian Gardens, a city of about 15,000 in southeastern Los Angeles County. "(Varrio Hawaiian Gardens) gang members take pride in their racism and often refer to the VHG Gang as the `Hate Gang,'" the main indictment said. "VHG gang members have expressed a desire to rid the city of Hawaiian Gardens of all African-Americans and have engaged in a systematic effort to achieve that result by perpetrating crimes against African-Americans." The indictment alleges a string of attacks on black residents, including a shooting into a home with eight people inside. The indictment does not say if anyone was hit. In another instance, two gang members allegedly chased a black man, yelled a racist epithet at him and then beat him with a garden rake. The same man was later repeatedly stabbed by two gang members, according to the indictment, which charged them with his attempted murder. According to 2000 census data, the latest available, Hawaiian Gardens was roughly 73 percent Hispanic and 4 percent black.
