I just noticed in your news stories; the suspects that are arrested are black, but are they not also innocent until proven guilty? Or does that just apply to non-blacks?
He only posts articles about blacks who commit crime. Don't you know white people don't do those things? LOL.

He has a different standard for blacks. The black men in his articles are all guilty because they are black.

Trayvon was also guilty because he was black. It matters not that according to the police and the state of Florida, Trayvon was engaged in no illegal activity.

WWB is dangerous around the haters.

the matter of fact that a very high percentage of blacks prey on innocent law abiding citizens. they are a very violent culture and will brutalize their victim without hesitation.
Yeah, I hear you.

Lanza, Loughner and Holmes sure did "brutalize their victim[s] without hesitation."

Their assault on law-abiding citizens was very violent, I agree.

Oops, my bad, they're not Black.

Stats, let's not overlook all the figures.

Blacks are not the only ones who commit crimes.

Here is what you say...

"every single day reports flood into the news with crimes committed by black people. its disgusting."

You zeroed in on a certain race, feeding into the hatefulness of the likes of madmaxx7 (aka cooch, et at) and others. Crime is crime, no matter who commits it. I'm sure there are reports of crime committed by other races that are disgusting too. But you failed to mention that. Maybe you don't find it disgusting.

Reports of crime is dominated by people of all races. AND your original post did not speak of the area of south Florida.

That speaks of your hate. I threw in "idiot" because it is my personal belief that those who hate based upon race are idiots.

Let me know if you have any other questions. People question stats all the time, so don't feel bad.

You know what I'm saying, stats?

to be quite honest i am actually a little troubled by the ongoing crime rate here in broward county and am noticing its a major percentage of the black population committing the crimes. of course all people from all walks of life will commit crimes, yes look at the percentage of most mass killings. its pretty much always a crazy white guy. so again im just venting on the way things are going down here.

black, white, Hispanic, Asian.. it doesn't matter. a street thug is a street thug. a danger to the community. yes the average black man walking down the street with their baggy clothes and gold teeth and dreadlocks sure needs to be looked out a little closer. the cops need to continue and start pushing harder on enforcing the laws down here in south Florida.

It's probably everywhere.

Here in Cleveland, our city is divided into the east side and the west side. The east side is almost all black while the west side has a mixture of whites, hispanics and some blacks. Yet most all of the shootings and murders take place on the east side of Cleveland. The west side has shootings and murders too--just not nearly the amount as the east side.

Your original post did not mention south Florida. It was open-ended.

And, since you're in the habit of "treating everyone with respect" and believe that a Black man "needs to be looked out a little closer," then please tell me what are we to do with the White man? Should he be "looked out a little closer" too since they're the ones committing most mass murders?

Or should just Black men be profiled?

You hit upon something that ought to cause American society to examine itself....

Why is it that if it's ok to profile or stereotype based on race because of the crime that's committed, why can we not profile White men for the crime they commit?

What makes him special?

Is your "respect" limited?

That and the fact the city is in a state that is totally anti-gun.
