Would you feel better if they were of another race?? Why even comment if the only focus is of color and race??

It doesn't seem to me anyone was questioning why color was mentioned. Yes it said 3 black males, and it may have been 3 involved in the actual shooting but it was a whole group.
The point is whether they be red , black, green purple or yellow it is still SENSELESS VIOLENCE....
"IRRITATED" is irritated because they KNOW the story because 1 of the victims is a close personal friend.
Until people have something constructive to say to not make themselves sound like a$$holes they should really keep thier mouths shut unless they know what they are talkin about.
You cannot classify a whole city, neighborhood or race.

Because there are some people out there who cry "racism" when the suspects are described as black but say nothing if they are of another race. I'm pointing out how silly they sound.

You see, society has two cards, the "race" card and the "gender" card and both get played on a daily basis in the media and throughout the legal system. Fact is, if you happen to be a white male between 30-45 years of age, YOU are discriminated against more than any other race, age group, or gender.

Your absolutely correct society does play the race card way to often and it just pi$$e$ me off. Instead of the focus being put where it belongs it stuck on the color of peoples skin

Please stop arguing. My sister was the one who got shot, not your sister. The truth of the matter is, that 2 people got shot. It shouldn't matter what skin color they were. Unless you know Robyn or Henry personally, I would just hush.

No. We won't hush.

The uncivilized behavior exhibited by Akron's hood rats costs citizens in the pocketbook...

Welfare for the baby mama and her bastards.

Costs to incarcerate the criminals.

More police needed.

Decreasing home values.

Poor performing schools.

We WON'T shut up until YOU AND YOUR HOMIES GROW UP AND BECOME CIVILIZED AMERICANS.

Listen, I am tired of all these people who "personally know" or are "close friends" or even alleged "relatives" of these so called victims, and I use that term very loosely. I am in much agreement with David's post above. I will also add that I don't feel sorry for any of them. When you are friends with, party with, associate with or hang with thugs, or are a thug, this is what quite often happens. I will not feel sorry for them, believe they were in the wrong place at the wrong time or that they are angels because some so called relative or friend posts on here how fucking great they are and starts laying a guilt trip to those posting.
