Seek to politicize? Are you kidding me?



I kid you not. There is very little sincere interest in the well being of either the driver or the boy. Instead folks use this as evidence of their particular cliche about blacks/whites (depending on the political "side").

It all starts with the leadership. If the roles were reversed, as I said earlier we would've heard from the good reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson by now. If the beating victim dies (God forbid) will Obama come out and say if he had a son, he would look like Steve Utash or one of the mob who did the beating?

Ok, I'll bring the crunchy granola aspect to this (and probably get slammed for it)

People (all People) need to:
1. Stop hating
2. Stop blaming
3. Start taking responsibility for their actions
4. Start using common sense
5. Start caring

Its a small world and getting smaller all the time. If people don't learn to get along, we're all doomed.

It is a small "world" We are all human, well most of us.. Skin color is one thing, but Culture and dna is another.. most of these people that commit "mob type" crimes have it in their dna. That is how they were written, to be violent, to live the drug and crime life.. It won't change, its in Their DNA!

Agreed 100%...

This SAME hatred is why so many have become disgusted with the prevailing atmosphere on ATS.

Hatred is NEVER conducive to honest discussion.



Recently an ATS owner drew a line and said enough.

I was SO glad to see that happen.

Hope was restored but it still has a ways to go.

Hey, I like granola too and I would hate for your perspective to be lost in these discussions. Please don't let a lively debate curb your idealism.

I think it is admirable but slightly irresponsible (in the long run) to focus on the road ahead without periodically checking in the rear view to see if we are producing any inadvertent roadkill from our driving style.

I would agree with that, it really does confirm my disdain for socialism and all of it's trappings.

So why then did Obama make public statements about the Trayvon Martin case? That mess involved the stupid decisions of only 2 citizens, the victim being black. This incident involved the collective bad decisions of over 30 individuals beating down a single white victim. Explain that one for me would you?

..aw...too bad you removed the quote I removed. Oh well.

Anyway...yeah, the culprits are also known as the twin pillars of socialism and fascism. Get rid of those two and you have paradise.

No it is not. You sir are confusing NAture vs. nuture. If you believe there is a genome coding for drug and thug life, you are wrong. If it was in their DNA, these people would not have a choice in their actions. The reality is that no - it is these peoples choices to commit these acts and yes some people in the world are just that sick for the fun of it.

I can remove my quote of your post if you like, no worries.

Incidentally, fascism is socialism so the catch-all need only be socialism.

It would be wrong to get slammed for this way of thinking. Even if 30% of humanity adoptyed this philosophy it would be a heck of a better world. But unfortunately it's more like 85% of humanity have their heads buried in the sand, care only about their own little world, and operate according to the majority mob rule, which usually isn't for the best.

True.

Yes, remove it if you would, so that there are no responses to it and I can leave this thread thats going to turn into another ideology-match.

Try more like never. While it is a great thought, economic, racial and religious diversity will always result in people being most comfortable with others in their group.

I was once upon a time a very not nice or trustworthy person. I managed to change but it took a lot of effort. The reason I say this is that I understand both sides of this coin. Poor people with bad attitudes will always look to the group that has "more" as being able to afford being stolen from.
Inner city thugs actually feel like they are doing the right thing by victimizing those outside their own group. It is the flaw in human nature.

mistressofspice' actually described pretty well what Jesus and many of the prophets, both OT and NT, foresaw.

Sure you're right about perhaps not happening soon, but it is GOING to happen and probably in most of our lifetimes.


For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; for behold, I create a Jerusalem as a rejoicing, and her people a joy. ~ Isaiah 65:17-19

Looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat . . . Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for a new heaven and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. ~ 2 Peter 3:12-13

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." ~ Revelation 21:1-4

Canada has a hate crimes law. I am wondering why we don't. My theory is, if we did, we would suddenly see that whites are not the only perpetrators of hate. The only way racism will start to subside is when it is conceded that there are racists of every color.There seems to be an increas in this kind of thing the past few years. It seems that white people have become more tolerant the past few decades just as blacks have become seemingly less tolerant (IMHO). As of late we seem to be seeing a lot of movies portraying white people as evil (The help, Django, etc). I am not saying that historically whites did not commit atrocities, I am just wondering why their atrocities seem to be a popular theme in movies right now. To be sure a crime was committed here. However, to be honest I am not sure that they beat him because he was white or because he hit the little boy. Its a shame though, he was screwed either way, if he had feared for his safety and driven off, it would have been deemed racially motivated that he didn't help the boy. I have to say one thing though, criminals who live in ghetto areas are opportunists who will take advantage of any situation to rob or steal, and it happens to anyone who happens to enter their hood, black or white. I was born in Highland park and lived in Royal Oak until I was 12, when my father had the good sense to get our family out of there. Even then things were starting to get bad. I cant imagine what is is like there now. If I had the misfortune of living in Detroit, I would be armed to the teeth.

My fault I guess I misunderstood you. It was the thing you stated about poor people with no prospects that set my nerves to jangling.

No doubt trying to rise above poverty in such a bleak atmosphere is a battle but I dont see it as an acceptable reason for beating down and robbing random people.

Didn't mean to place words in your mouth it just sounded kind of similar to the same " oh they just don't know any better" nonsense constantly trumpeted by the excuse makers.

Im with you on your solution to the gang problem.
