Either tell me the racist things I've said, or stop responding to me. I'm beginning to believe you're just trolling to waste my time.


Your whole persona is racist!

I need not point out any particular instance.

If I were to troll you? I have better arguments with my 4 year old...

That must be your way of saying you can't point out any specific racist things I've said. Acknowledging other peoples' racism doesn't make me a racist.

The real truth is this will effect change, this is going to be very expensive so the police will be made to be on thier best behavior for a time...

But dont worry as soon as people forget it will be business as usual...

What opportunistic things. I'd say animals, but looters aren't high enough on the totem pole to be considered animals. Actually, they're not even on it, thieves simply exist as shoe scrapings at best.
Really, how does stealing anything not nailed down fix this situation? It doesn't. They're not starving, there's no natural disaster that rendered their foodstock gone, you can't eat Nikes. It's not like looting was to remedy a life or death situation for the looters. They're stealing because they can get away with it right now, and that's all there is to it. Opportunistic things.


Anybody who thinks this kind of behavior is justified as a mass outburst will never get any real respect, and will certainly never be listened to when they speak out. Why should I listen to people who think B & E & robbery is acceptable behavior just because they're mad at authorities? Bleep 'em, the prison system can have 'em.


I am looking for a wife... just like you!
lol

Anger towards the police is justified. Looting is not. It is counterproductive and hurts more than helps. What started out as a peaceful protest. Has turned into a lot of people who, probably were not even at the protest, to start looting, when the police got heavy handed. Its sad cause now all we will hear is about the looting. Not what proceeded it.

I think labeling people as a typical stereotype in either kind of light is part of the issue. a reply to: Rezlooper

Seriously,

We should address why so many Americans are Retarded enough to take what they see in media and then enter it into their daily lives without being able to identify what is "sane" and "insane"

And no... it's not just the Black culture... plenty of White dimwits too...

Personally, I honestly think it's the divorce culture/ lack of parenting... Teenagers are retarded, I have one atm... I have to put a lot of effort (or had to until this point) to see he actually understands what lifestyle is "real" and what isn't... there's an IQ factor which makes it easier, but none the less... we have no parental guidance as a culture.

I mean seriously, i see guys in there 30's and 40's whose "persona" is like something out of HS, everyone living and dressing like some moronic persona from the TV

Seriously... ANYONE reaching 13 in the modern world and thinking that "gangbanger" is an actual option? Or any of it...

Per Capita... we have more people who emulate "characters" and Entertainment than any nation on Earth... And i'm not talking Cosplay lol, I'm talking grown women who want to be like sex in the city, kids who want to be thugs, men who take 2 karate classes and think they are Chuck Norris... God damn most people think that sex is like porn for crying out loud...

I think we are just on a generation or two of people who just....weren't raised

I get the biggest kick out of people who say,

"And that's all there is to it".


Damn it.


When it obviously isn't.

God bless ya sir.

I still have love for you despite everything.

I'm not here to tear you down or define our indifference's.

That's the point. The only thing that separates me from you is a keyboard.

Do with it what you wish; it's 3:48 am here...Goodnight brother.

I do not know if it is divorce culture. I am divorced and I raise my son just fine and try to instill in him all the values and smarts you talk about. Yet lack of parenting is a huge problem in this country. So is everything else you stated. So I agree there.

We only riot in Canada when the NHL playoffs don't go our way... Oh, and when Cabbage Patch Kids came out. Dropping them from helicopters to masses of people 2 weeks before Christmas was not the best idea.

It frustrstes me to no end im sick of trying to help others read between the lines or even just open thier eyes and take a look around to form a real opinion, instead delusions are spouted off like facts...

Im 16 years old and know this in itself helps perpetuate the sickened state mankind is in...

Ditto...

But even in 2 parent homes... I don't know. People are self obsessed, loose track of what matters in life... The "raising" part isn't there, it's done by a mediocre education system and communication devices.

Parenting is a full time job
