Many blacks have a deep hatred of whites, and they hold forth the hope that hispanics (who used to classify themselves as whites until they saw a way to get the benefits blacks get) will side with them against whites but instead this is the end result. You will not hear much protest from blacks over these events. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton will not stand by the side of these black people. Perhaps because there is no money to be made off lawsuits against gangsters? Hispanic illegal immigration has destroyed the black janitors union. Bilingual speakers are moving into what were once decent jobs for blacks and others who only speak English. Hardly a complaint from the black community, even after all the struggles of the civil rights movement. The economic effect of all this immigration has been far more devastating to the black community than white racism today. Hispanics do not have to toe the line over racism, as white people do. Hispanic culture sees darker skin as inferior. Mexican slang has many insulting terms for those of African descent, such as "monkey," "liver," and worse. Ironically, however, hispanic gangsters while hating blacks imitate many aspects of the black community - rap music, gangster styles of dress, etc. There are many sides to U.S. culture, but that is the part of U.S. culture they choose and prefer to follow.

You do have a point about Blacks. I am Black and I see blacks dissing and treating their own like shit all the time, sometimes worse than the KKK.

But you are wrong about this girl. She wasn't racist. She was killed by some no talent losers who were too scared to get real jobs in the real world so that's why they are in gangs. Get It?

You are so right Snowflake. I as a Black person have never seen Hispanics in the same boat as Blacks.

Ever since I was a kid I always knew stuff going on in LA like the present would happen with both cultures.

A lot of Hispanic dudes grow up and have two options

1.) Manual Labor OR
2.) Gangs

Saying that one can see why Hispanics have a ton of hatred towards Blacks. I aint being racist but its the truth.

Blacks are not even doing the gang stuff anymore there are doing these things:

1.) Hip Hop
2.) Sports
3.) Acting
4.) Directing
And More!

A lot Mexican dudes are jealous of black men so they take their frustrations out on the black culture by joining gangs.

They know that their Mexican girls crave black men, they know that black men are threats to them in sports, job, and other parts of society and subsequently they begin to hat the black person.

Deportation ,widespread killings, and intimidation of gang members regardless of race needs to start now!

Having lived off and on in the Southern California region since 1989 this does not surprise me. Some of the least educated Mexicans and Central Americans have, through emigration en masse to the SW US, essentially overwhelmed any semblance of normal immigration patterns that others have taken in settling in the US. Rather, they now reside in what are simply undereducated and often very violent colonies that have not, and are not, integrating into the US in any meaningful way. Clearly, immigration laws must be enforced or, sadly, more of the same is inevitable.
I also lived in Mexico for a year and, as a white American, I was told by not a few Mexican friends many times of their antipathy toward blacks in general. It is part of their innate cultural belief system in Mexico that must be broken if they choose to become Americans. Just as the same was done via the Civil Rights Movement, and continues being done, throughout all levels of the American population.

When ever you put oppressed and poverty stricken people together (in slums) and make them fight over crumbs this is what you get. People of color have to redirect their actions towards the system that created the circumstances that they all have to live with. I remember when Black and Latino gangs co-existed and only interacted on a social level. On my block as a kid we stayed out of each others business, but socialized due to living on the same streets. Naturally the powers that be couldn’t handle that, so they began pitting them against each other in the jail system. Take a look at the way housing is arranged in the prison/jail system. How is it that all these gangs have been conveniently housed together? Is anyone aware that most of the violence between Blacks and Latinos is sanctioned by the gang leadership in the prison system? Leadership that has multiple year sentences if not life. Seems to me that maybe we should be looking at the myth of “rehabilitation”, isn’t that what “correctional” facilities are for? California prisons seem to be strictly for housing, and that helps how? Not at all. As long as we keep misdirecting the source of the madness, the madness will continue. And to White folks that think this is just a “dark peoples” problem, wait till one of your kids get caught in the crossfire. As you may or may not know, what ever people of color do, young white folks follow close behind. Putting themselves in the cross hairs just to be cool. So you can wait and criticize if you like, but who do you think buys the most gangster rap? Not people of color, we just burn it from a friend….1 Luv Big Al
