So tell me, which part of the joke I posted is untrue and "racist"? The part about black guys liking basketball or the part about black males having a propensity to commit rape? After all, according to Dept. of Justice crime statistics:
- Black males commit 48% of the approximately 160,000 rapes reported annually yet account for only 6% of the general population.
- In cases where the race of both victim and offender are known:
1) Of the roughly 110,000 annual cases where the race of the rape or sexual assault victim is white, 35% of the offenders are black. This means that about 39,000 white women are victims of black-on-white rape each year.
2) Of the roughly 34,000 cases annually in which the victim of rape or sexual assault is black, 100%(yes, 100 percent) of the offenders are black, and 0.0%(thatís not a typo Ė itís actually less than ten reported cases annually) of the offenders are white. This means that based on reported cases, white-on-black rape is virtually nonexistent (or at the very least extremely rare) in the United States.
- As far as blacks liking basketball, surely youíre not that clueless about black culture, are you?
So I ask again, my naÔve, guilty white liberal friend, please tell me which part of the joke I posted is untrue or "racist"?
Well that's just great. Now the NAACP and the ACLU will hold a news conference to complain that whites are racists because they don't rape Black women based on government statistics.

You just couldn't leave it alone. You just had to bring facts into the argument.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING, TELLING THE TRUTH??????

I noticed that none of the "good citizens" who posted racist comments and jumped to conclusions about who the shooter was, have come back and apologized after the arrest of a home-grown Chesterfield white guy.

Well taz, I have lived in the area as well, an have never known any problems that you mention. Conflicting opinions i guess. I do not think that "houses that border" should be dragged into this argument either. That has nothing to do with the park itself. And the fact that the way you are obviously trying to imply that it is the "thugs" on the courts that are responsible for this is quite repulsive to me. If you checked crime reports for over 30 years, almost any criminal activity would build up. Why dont you pull YOUR head out of your butt and actually use your brain for common sense?

Well lack of reason, why don't you take off your rose colored glasses and see the real world?

I enjoyed Rockwood park with my family, but I knew enough to watch over them. The world can be an ugly place some times and it is a shame you refuse to see the truth.

People like you wander through life without a clue.

It has nothing to do with viewing the world with rose colored glasses. I am seeing the truth, it is you who is obviously missing the truth. There was 1 shooting incident there for the first time in at least the polices opinion "several years". I would consider multiple incidents in a single place a problem, but 1 hoodlum making problems at a place 1 time does not cause me to consider Rockwood Park an "ugly place." There have been FAR worse things to happen at places much nicer than Rockwood Park, and those are written off as flukes. As they should if they are not a consistent problem. I am not saying at all that revision to policies or an increased police presence are needed, I am just saying you are unfairly targeting this park and other places as over run by "thugs" and trouble makers, when in fact EVERY citizen should and can use the park. I do not wander through life without a clue, and i do not even know what that has anything to do with the topic at hand. The fact that I look at the park as a whole and do not allow a single incident define ANY place is responsible in my eyes. Huguenot Park had an incident less than a month ago where a gun was pulled on people (no one was shot thankfully), but that somehow escaped the news, and that is a park frequented by a more affluent demographic in my opinion. Despite this incident also, i see Huguenot park as a whole and realize both Rockwood and Huguenot Parks are ASSETS, not liabilities to chesterfield. I suggest you take off the blindfolds covering your eyes, and look around for once. You obviously do not appreciate what you have, or the opportunities you are given

ps. Your inability to look at a whole situation, look at the facts presented in a situation, and evaluate a situation without bias is evidenced in your comments in the story about the missing mother. The media simply reported that a child was found wandering around in an apartment complex and you, like others found the need to criticize the mother because you assumed she and the father were horrible parents and should be sent to jail. Next time, gather the facts before you go criticizing other people that you don't even KNOW! I hope you feel like a jerk. I don't look through rose color glasses, but i least i don't look through crap colored glasses for every situation like you do.

I said 80% not all. Take a look at any article that mentions a black person and count up how many blatantly racist things people say on here. Are you new to this site or something?

Everyone makes such a big deal about black-on-black violence, but did you ever think about the fact that the blacks are just trying to catch up with white people?

Remember Hitler? That crazy cracker killed almost 12 million other crackers. Vlad the Impaler? About 80,000 crackers. The decades of car bombings in cracker-filled Ireland? And the list of crackers killing crackers goes on...

So, technically, when it comes to same-race violence, black people are simply in a huge deficit and are (excuse the blantantly racist business pun) trying to get back in the black.

Rimshot!

As you know, crime statistics are quite unpopular among certain segments of the population. I can almost hear King Salami of the Richmond NAACP: "Dem fax be rayciss."
