After eight homicides in less than a month, Grand Rapids police have stepped up patrols in "hot spot areas," worked to get illegal guns off the street and kept Major Case Team detectives working overtime.

Racism by the population. And the uninformed vote. Live with it.

I find these comments to be quite racist in nature, but I couldn't agree more.

Ape on ape?

Well, at least Black Americans have advanced enough that we don't slaughter rooms full of school children with war fighting weapons, maybe than non ape portion of this society will soon catch-up.

You are all full of nonsense. Here's a perspective we hadn't thought of. Read it all and discuss whose fault all of this is:

It would seem to me, that if you see a high percentage of one race, unable to conform to the behavior standards of the whole of a society, regardless of years of free education and every advantage, this government can afford.....then we must face the fact that many, certainly not all of these people, are genetically incapable of coexisting within the allowable norms of this civilization.....if they are unable to become responsible, law-abiding, ambitious...how much must we allow? What can we do? There comes a point, and we have reached it fiscally, that changes must be made.....

Right...you just kill them one at a time...sleeping old people and kids walking home from school. Babies whose only crime was to have been fathered by someone else. Blacks commit homicide at a rate 7 times that of caucasions.
Save your whole 'we're more advanced' line of crap for someone a lot more naive than most of us....the truth is you're a whole lot more violent as a group.

And the rate of black on black crime is a whole lot higher than black on white or white on black crime. I don't understand why that is anymore than I have ever understood rioting and burning your own home instead of the people you are angry with.

It's black on black because of the segregated society we live in. How many black people live in your neighborhood?

Quite a few and Hispanics too. Sorry you live in a segregated neighborhood. You could change that if you chose to.

Racism in America since the advent and arrival of Christopher Columbus, the Plymouth and the Mayflower - this is the real story of crime and criminals. Now it is time to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Enjoy.

Advanced!?!?
When you can at least learn to pull up your pants then we can chat about how "advanced" you think you are.
As for the nuts who shoot up schools, most of those losers walk around talking "street" and strutting around with their pants down around their knees just like the brown people?
These white wannabes trying to act ghetto just like the brown people, so they learned this behavior by being forced, through "diversity", to interact with brown people.
Whitetrash mimics brown people, it's NEVER the other way around. You will NEVER see a brown person imitating white people.
At least you don't hide your racism. That's about all I can say about you.

But the racists are dwindling. Pretty soon they'll be the minority and no one will pay attention to them. This last election was a perfect example of how this country has changed. The racists lost and their influence couldn't keep a black man from getting a second term. I pity them and their machine of hatred because most racism is built from low self esteem.

Indeed, only the group now engaging in it has changed color.
