Um what do you mean "these people"? To what are you referring to?

Those people I wouldn't want to live next to, interact with, and most of all, teach. You know, these people. It's nature and nurturing, you know? Their DNA is corrupted with bad genes and this is hereditary. We call this a culture of those people.

For people who have no criminals in their families you all sure have great opinions. A family lost a son, brother, cousin, nephew. I know it doesnt mean much to you but I will truly miss my cousin. People make mistakes all the time and of course none of you have ever done that but because he was a young black man, he's no good and worth nothing. God doesnt like ugly and for those passing judgement on my cousin. Bless you all. This is tragic for the family but you will never know that until it happens to you, I pray it never does. I'm not condoning what he did but death was not the answer either.
You will truly be missed Deshoun. Love and prayers to Shoun and the family

Your family is a 100% perfect ? Just because you supposely live in RHE does that make you better than anyone else ? Yes he did something wrong but does that mean he has to die ? He is a human being and death isn't always the answer. If you or someone does something wrong should you or your family should die ? Think about it ! I wouldn't want that for you.

I guess, if needed, then by all means, I'll speak the "kings" English. I personally was just commenting that DeShoun, was a good person, and that, those of us who knew him, were always on his side. Understandably, there's some form of a ethnic, and or, grammar gap pertaining to our communication, therefore, I'll re frame, and request all to re frame from any form of "street-lingo", ie..non-formating. Simply, to symbolize the true feelings for this young man, you would have had to have known him. That being the case, some of your defacto'(conclusion) comments are not progressing the conversation, and lack of respect for the dead. Granted, this boy had issues with the law, and regardless of the situation, these issue were not addressed, and therefore, he paid the ultimate price, however, that does not diminish the loss for both his family, and his friends. That's what I wrote, and albeit, not in a articulate manner, it was said, and understood by those of our culture.

On a final note, I can't help but feel a little perturbed by your demeanor at the conclusion of your comment. I do feel that you might have been misguided in what you were trying to say, and so that we all know what was behind the "eyes" - please, continue.....

I am so sorry for your loss and I agree no one deserves to die jus because they made a mistake. Everyone makes a mistake but we shouldn't die because of it. I pry that his family an friends can find peace that there really is people out here that care. God Bless yo all

100%? No, even I'll admit that. But even the ones on the line between right and wrong didn't cross it. Living in a certain area of course doesn't make me better. However, I have little sympathy for criminals that break into people's homes. There is NO EXCUSE for that. It's tragic that he died, he should have merely gone to jail and faced time for his crimes. I read today that it may have been a blow to the back of his head by a shotgun (owned by the resident of the house that he broke into). I'm sure that person didn't mean to kill him with that blow, but to restrain him. Quite frankly, he's lucky he wasn't shot on site.

This is where I have a problem with this. Why, if you are capable of being eloquent,(albeit sarcastically so) would you lower yourself and proceed to speak/type/write in what I am assuming is ebonics? Do you not feel that this furthers stereotypes and racism towards you? Speaking in this manner does not come across as cultural so much as it appears as a complete disregard for education, and self respect. I'm not trying to pick a fight. I'm trying to understand. I have many friends in the black community, but they are lawyers, doctors, and executives who don't speak in this particular lingo.
