I owe the Professor an apology. The Georgia shooter was a teen ager. However I was right about his being black. The dead child was white, and the shooter, and his black friend both have extensive criminal records. There was a witness who earlier said the shooter was black. Really if I had to guess each time these things happen, and I guessed black I would be right 98% of the time.

The shooter I mentioned is 10 years old, not a teen, and he is black. You would like to believe others, like white people, are shooting up their neighborhoods, but they aren't. Face the truth. There are no cities in this country complaining about white neighborhood killings every week. Yes. white people, and Hispanic people kill each other, but not for sport, like on the South side of Chicago, and not every week, week after week. People will not be able to fix the problems until they face up to them.
Again, you need for shooters to be black and trumpet such killings (especially of your protected race, white people) as loudly as you can. Of course you largely ignore black-on-black crime, except as part of your racist effort to portray black Americans as 'savages.'

The problems will not be fixed with a single solution, but getting guns out of circulation is one OBVIOUS necessity.

More of the same. If I had to guess which crimes you'd post about, it would be black-on-anybody, starting with black-on-white.

If one were to guess you were a racist, one would be right 100% of the time.

Where are there neighborhoods in white areas that start shooting at each other on Thursday, and don't stop until Sunday night when they are too tired to play the game any longer or out of bullets? 2 dead, and 18 wounded in the Chicago neighborhoods where this happens over the weekend week after week. I am not making it up, and I refuse to let the likes of you cover it up. This problem needs to be addressed, but the Mayor, and Police Chief are powerless to stop it. You would like to stop the debate, but it has gone on far to long to ignore. You are so educated, what is your solution, beside to disarm the law abiding citizen who would not go near those neighborhoods.

BTW, calling me racist won't stop the debate. Racist has lost its sting since black people use it for everything they disagree with, far too often.

White or black or asian, if you're a racist, you're a racist. And you are...a racist.

The vast majority of black Americans, to my knowledge, do NOT use "racist" to describe anyone they disagree with, any more than they use it to describe someone who doesn't like or agree with Mr. Obama.

Those are just rigtie inventions, basically...

That is funny. The few black people I come into contact with constantly excuse their Chicago weekly killing with calling anyone who brings it up a racist. There is no excuse for their behavior. The sooner you recognize the problem, the sooner you can help them find a solution. Government has put billions of dollars into those neighborhoods since the 1960s, and it has gotten worse. There are some people outside the community that are begining to look for solutions, but again it calls for millions of dollars being pumped into the area with no guarantee it will change a thing. If you are anywhere near as smart as you appear to be you know that is the truth.

I spent a little time browsing FBI Crime Stats for 2010(Last year that has been finalized) and made some interesting discoveries.

Did you know that 90% of blacks are murdered by blacks, and 83% of whites are murdered by whites?

Did you know that there are 14.82 murders per 100K by blacks versus 2.17 per 100K for whites?

Per capita there are 7x more murders committed by blacks than whites.

I didnít make this up. It comes directly from the FBI. I just cut the numbers in a more revealing manner .

You would see the facts- idiot. It's because it's true. Races tend to prey on their own. It's just that blacks do it xxxx more often.

So as you can see, sport, YOU are the racist, because that's the first thing that pops into your head.

No race in this coutry is protected. We are all the same. It happens that in the African American neighbrhoods they use their poverty to excuse every problem they have ever had, and they call everyone who points out their social problems racist. If those people killing each other in Chicago spent half the time they waste trying to accomplish something they could get jobs, have families, enjoy life. Instead they prey on each other like animals in the kingdom. You now I am right

Black people probably shun you because they can smell the racism on you.

Solutions to violence in poor and inner-city communities are of course important and will be complex - but hating on black people won't get us there.

You need to know that.

Even if Patton said it, it means nothing. He was a violence-crazed arrogant nutjob who was once removed from command for striking a wounded soldier he considered a 'malingerer.'

A real Rightie asshat-type...

Irrelevant, since I didn't dispute the problem of black-on-black crime, and wasn't even talking to you.

and if Patton hadn't done what he did, you would be speaking German, and doing the goose-step. Thank goodness they don't allow people such as you, anywhere near a position of power.

Gaddammed liar...you posted this:

Patton, and Patton ALONE defeated Hitler and prevented me and (presumably) all Americans from speaking German, you said.

I'm a Democrat but I'm extremely angry with MY party for pushing this idiotic nonsense based on lies by the gun grabbers.

Senator Feinstein, I guess you didn't listen when President Clinton mentioned that the assault weapons ban was one of the major reasons why Gore wasn't elected.

I haven't voted for a single Republican since Ronald Reagan (yes, that was a mistake but I learned my lesson) but there are millions like me that will simply NOT show up to vote since we can not stomach voting for the GOP.

Not that you guys are doing much for us anyway. You screwed up the health Care Law as you did nothing to lower the runaway prices and Medicare for All wasn't even on the table and now Obama has indicated a willingness to put Social Security and Medcare on the table as well as other needed programs.

LIBERALS? what liberals???

Furthermore on the "a stopped clock is right twice a day" principle, you've chosen to challenge the GOP on the ONLY two things they've EVER been right about, guns and ILLEGAL immigrants.
