Let's stop the racial comments. We are all human beings. Some have it better than others.

Meaning??????

How does "not having it better" justify, excuse, or explain for that matter, the whole sale crime spree and rampant murders occurring in Newport News's East End?

Whether you like it or not, some things are indicative of racial, and if that term offends your senses too much, ethnic problems.

No one is forcing people to kill each other in the East End and now certain areas of Denbigh. No one is forcing anyone to sell, buy, and use illegal drugs in those areas. And no one is forcing anyone in those areas to settle for anything less than what is availble to any other member of this society. That is a choice that they make.

"Having it better" has nothing to do with the significant crime the occurs in low income and government subsidized neighborhoods. Choosing to act like a criminal, not taking advantage of all that is available to you, and being raised to think that you are nothing more than a common thug, does.

I actually knew Little Johnny growing up. He was a really descent young man. He used to come to my house and help with anything that he could. He held the door, he was very respectful and well mannered. I understand the discusting comments and there is no need to really address them. Its not a black thing. Its ... what a person decides to do with their life. I was also shot in Newport News. Just at the wrong place at the wrong time, trying to purchase my son a bag of diapers. But I am not a statistic by my standards. God put me there for a purpose. I am a college educated, beautiful black woman. A good mother, and as a Queen, I treat my King as such. Although I can not lie. I married a white man. Most of the black men just have learned to disrespect women so much that I dont think that they realize when they are torturing us. I hate to feel this way but the truth is just that... the truth. Johnny was one of the few black men that I would have given a chance. That says a lot about his character as far as I am concerned. May you R.I.P. angel.
