^That^ is the biggest load of crap I have read today so far.
This IS a discussion of race in America.
Yes there are gangs of all colors.
Tell me about the gangs that are rainbow gangs, and make a point of having a diverse membership.
No, race can not be left out of it. The FBI's statistics on gun deaths in this country show that over 80% of ALL gun deaths in America, are blacks shooting other blacks.
It is not racist to talk about what to do about changing that sad fact of just who is shooting the VAST amjority of black people in this country.
Are you saying we should just shut up and let them shoot each other? How does that solve anything concerning stopping gun crimes?
There is white gangs black gangs Asian gangs I have seen many biker groups with all colors. Heck even the Amish have gangs....
STOP MAKING IT SOUND LIKE ONLY COLORED PEOPLE ARE IN GANGS AND CRIME......THAT IS BS AND YOUR LYING.

Racism is ugly and it makes people who are racist ugly.

Is this where I get to seriously ask you to engage in an honest discussion of the gang culture and how it is killing our youth?
Is this the point where you will honestly begin the discussion and avoid making it a black/white thing?

So your answer is "no, this is not where Huh will engage in an honest discussion."?

You are correct. There is no diversity where gangs are concerned. The biggest threat to the black community are inner-city black gangs, the thug culture that goes with them, poor educational opportunities and/or interest, drugs, irresponsible breeding, and the government supported welfare system.

No, we should not sit back and let them kill each other. An entire generation of young people are being destroyed and the growing anger based on ignorance, gangs, and the thug culture is a ticking time bomb; a time bomb that is already leaching out of the inner-city as illustrated by the death of an infant in a baby carriage, an Australian baseball player, and a WW II vet and yes, even Trayvon Martin.

One has to wonder why those bigots, both black and white who post on this thread have not realized the common problem that we all face.

Of course there are gangs of all colors, but you will find that almost all gangs are gangs of one color.

The gangs that threatens inner-city black people are black.

It is not racist to point out the destruction of the inner-city and the part that black gangs are playing in it. In fact, it might be considered racist if one cries race every time some one points out the doom that is going on in our cities.

We all should be concerned about what is going on in our cities. Blacks, including the so called leaders who deny or excuse are part of the problem. Black people have to be in the forefront of solving the problem, and crying racism just will not cut it.

Zimmer's attorney says there was a gun in the vehicle.?
Mark O'Mara, who nonetheless stressed that his client says he didn't use it to threaten anyone. "The gun was holstered under his shirt, and it stayed there the whole time,"

Mrs. Zimmerman and anyone else should be concerned about whether Zimmie has a gun - under, over, below, or up his shirt.

You just do not get it do you.

It is your claim.
I have said nothing about only black gangs Mr. Huh. I clearly said that there are in fact gangs of all colors.
I asked you to engage in and discuss the fact ... from the FBI's statistics ... that in those gangs of ALL colors, the black gang culture is killing each other to the tune of OVER 80% of ALL gun deaths in this country.

That is a fact. It needs addressed. It is the single biggest group of gun deaths there is ... blacks shooting other blacks.

Why do you run from that fact? Why do you cry "racism" where none exists? Factual statistical numbers are not racist Mr. Huh, they are simply numbers. They are numbers that show where the biggest tally of gun deaths is occuring.
Do you have anything to offer concerning how we could realistically address that sad fact, and try to stop the bloodshed in our streets?
It is red blood that is being spilled. It is being spilled 4 times as often as ANY other source. It is black on black crime.
Can a black be racist to another black?
Can a white be racist to other whites?

What do you have to offer to address those deplorable black gun death numbers?

What a foolish thing for you to claim.

I point to an alarming statistical number from the FBI's database, and you call me a racist for asking you to explore why those numbers exist in such a lopsided fashion.

Whites, reds, yellows, browns, and any and all other "colors" of people are NOT shooting OVER 80% of our black youth Mr. Huh.
Other blacks are shooting their own.

When I made that post I was thinking about the plight the inner-city. That is the one central problem that faces our cities and threatens to explode across the country.

Guns are the tools of destructions that are used often to kill, both in our cities and in rural America. That applies to the gangbangers and the country people who own shotguns, pistols, and automatic weapons. It looks like this country does not have the stomach do anything about controlling or regulating guns.

We are in a round robin. Criminals have guns. People want guns to protect themselves from criminals.

Lying is wrong......You should stop. Inner cities were destroyed when greedy companies out sourced jobs to COMMIE CHINA AND CARTEL MEXICO.

It is not color that is problem it is POVERTY. Where whites are in poverty they are in gangs and crime...IT IS POVERTY NOT RACE........

It is you who are claiming that race is the problem. You will not find that in my words Mr. Huh. You blame whitey for all your problems and the problems of blacks.

You bitch about rich people and how greedy they are and that they outsourced jobs because they are so greedy and nasty because they have money and you do not.
Then you turn around and say that money will solve the problems that plague the poor OF ALL COLORS in our cities.
You seem to think that only black people are capable of being in poverty.
You talk as if only black people have had it bad. That is a weak and dangerous position to place one's self in.

It is not the tool which needs controlled and regulated by the state Grandpa. You know that.

You guys do not like to look at the big picture and you do not like to look at guns as being part of the problem.

Unless you do, you will continue to tribalize the issues and try and pit one group of amerikkkkans against another and not look at the common thread of guns.

There is no hope for you guys - it will come from the younger generation of rational and reasoned thinkers who want our country to succeed.
