picture #3: look at the proportion of the head to the rest of the body. LOL.

That's either bad photoshopping, or his gang nickname was 'bobblehead'.

Yeah, where is Sharpie anyway? Why isn't he patroling this neighborhood and talking to his "brothers" and "sisters" telling them that they have to "change their ways"? He's only at the scene when it involves a white person so he can get more network coverge for himself. Besides, he knows there is nothing he can do or say with his own race to change their ways.

If these morners put the same effort into cleaning up their neighborhood of gangs and drugs as they do in making these elaborate shrines they just might have a safer neighborhood.
You can remember the good memories of someone in your heart forever and at any time of the day instead of sites of candles that just remind you of the tragic death of someone that you knew.
I would rather have them in my heart than to see a shrine everyday reminding me of violence, wouldn't you?

Sharpton relies on contributions to his "non profit" by creating division among the races.
with black on black crime he loses that division factor, henceforth, no money, no Sharpton.

I actually agreed with what you said until that last line. But then your stupidity compels you to again show what an ignorant racist a**hole you are. Nope, there is nothing he can do with his race, they are just inferior to the more intelligent white race, as represented by morons such as you, right?

when do you feel that black leaders and black role models should stand up and say to the black community," stop, what are you doing?" isn't enough, enough already? how many more have to die? why the silence? can't understand this..........

Ideally, leaders and role models would have been standing up for some time now. Real leaders, not posers like Sharpton or Jackson, who just cause more damage. Not Obama, teaching that government subsidies can be a way of life. Someone who can get through to our youth and change this culture of assistance into one of self sufficience through education and hard work. Enough is enough, and too many are dying.

All white people in Connecticut need to go to jail. Only then can they truly call themselves progressive.

She is someone I am close friends with.... I know quite a few people in the terrace. Note: I do not know anyone in the bad parking lots, and if I did, I would not visit them. I'm very careful about going up there.

Blaze is very nice; I've probably known her 15 years. I have not heard directly from anybody about the shootings, etc.

You should give Tyrone some credit- directly. He's well spoken, etc. He is open to our ideas. Clearly you are not a racist; but you're sort of too argumentative with him. Look at his response after your post (above).

I'm really disappointed in lifeisshort. I thought better of him till now.
I hold some negative opinions about many ghetto attitudes, but I always try to judge individuals, not by race. Can we all just do that and work on making Tyrone a conservative?
