Although one might ask if the mother was harboring a fugitive.

A picture is worth a single word - and that word begins with the letter after 'M' (for murderer).

Aren't you clever. Tell you what, next time you see one of us have the courage to call us that to our face.

That could be taken as falling right into a stereotype- and since when do you attack someone for an opinion? The pictures of that kid do look something is wrong. It's not an inditement of an entire race.

I found Sol's post referencing the "N" word offensive. And how can you tell by a picture if something is wrong with someone or not? Isn't that stereotyping, or profiling?

Ok, I didnt see that post. I don't think looking at a picture is stereotyping- stereotyping would be for a group, not an individual. To me, the kid looks somehow like he grew up in terrible circumstances, regardless of his race. He's got kind of a vacant, hard/ scared look.

Don't be a twat. Nulli is right - you're a 'protected species' and while you can freely call me 'cracker' and 'white trash' and 'casper' and all other kinds of names (that I'll let go right on by me because I know you're inherently defective) the very INSTANT that I call you [rhymes with bigger] I'll get nailed on federal 'hate speech' charges and never see the light of day again.

'black people' aren't murderers,
'colored people' aren't murderers,
'african american' people aren't murderers;
[rhymes with bigger]s are murderers.

get OVER yourself.

I have to say I'm surprised at several of you guys- you're aiming a lot of hostility at a particular black person who doesn't deserve it. And what was his transgression exactly? Defending his pride in being black? What is he supposed to do, readily agree that he is 'inferior' whenever he is asked?

Don't you guys know to judge an individual rather than a race?

I think you'd be surprised at how many people think like them, co-workers, associates, etc, and you'd never know it because they hide it. But give them anonymity behind a keyboard and their true color comes out.
Besides, I think that Sol knows that he is limited, and that "S.o.l." is really just his way of saying that he is "Sh*t.outta.luck" when it comes to intelligence.

I dunno, I kind of disagree with you on that. Most white people know to judge an individual. I honestly think many black people believe there are more racists than there actually are.

Sol has actually posted many intelligent things in the past, believe it or not. But yeah, people definitely say more from behind a keyboard. I often become completely infantile, I like joking around.

We all do it- we offer our opinion on a topic and on other posters. That's judging people. And judging others creates a social pressure to behave well (in general). It helps society function.

I know Tyrone is just itching to see what I post on this boy, Roderick. Well, here goes Tyrone.
Judging from the picture he looks like a normal, decent kid, just chose the wrong path to follow through the years. Maybe he had no homelife, no moral figure to look up to or listen to, just the gang leaders and his peers. Too bad. He could be anybody's child trying to fit in like so many other unstable kids that they choose what seems like an easy way out of their predicament and that is to join a gang. Gangs can "take care" of him, but nothing like his home life, if he even had what you would call a good home life. Now Roderick has several felony convictions and may never see the outside of a prison all because he chose the wrong people to be with and drifted down the wrong path of life. So many kids end up the same way. Black or white. It all starts with the family and family values. It's a sad story for all the families, and Roderick. I'm sure he's scared of what lies ahead for him. Someone is dead because of him for no reason and his so-called "protective" gang is nowhere with him. He doesn't get any help from them now but if he has a Mom and Dad I'm sure they would be right there beside him. THAT support would almost ALWAYS be there. Too bad.
Some of these kids make it all the way through college, like Tyrone, and I congratulate them. It's a long road and not very easy. Hopefully, more of these kids will choose the right path and do the same.

Nicely stated, I couldn't agree more.

Yeah I agree too. And if there is no one in the family who is a success/has values, it makes it far more unlikely that there will be a good outcome.
