You're mostly correct.

While the color of their skin *is* a fact, and anyone who saw them would see that, when one simply reads an article about the incident, or even when there is coverage about it, there's no need to bring skin color into it because it's irrelevant.

And even if there IS a video (in this case there is) or you're standing in front of someone, there's no need to point out the obvious.

That's like going out in public, seeing a black person, and saying to your friend: "Hey, that guy's black."

I see poor people you see colour to prove your point, poor people do dumb # all the time, all around the world.

Liberal and conservative media use the same tricks to sell more crap, no need to pretend its not true.

More excuses plz.


Really? well considering there are more poor white people in the US , how come they arent out in masse doing the same thing?

Your accusation holds no water....

clearly its a culture issue

I'm sure they were all just looking for pencils and notepads for school.

We all know they didn't do nothing.

I think what is important is that a group of people did something wrong; not their ancestry.

Um, isn't saying I see poor people just as racist as saying black. Because now you are equating skin color with their economics. Do you know they are poor?

You also state that poor people do dumb stuff. Have you looked around the celebrity gossip sites? Rich people do dumb stuff too. And saying that poor people do dumb stuff is being insensitive to an economic status.

So the only thing known for certain is the approximate age and color of said perpetrators. And such things are even pointed out when making a statement to the police.

*crickets* still waiting for you to answer my question? If there are more poor white people in the USA than there are poor black people (which there are) Why arent there more large groups of white people out doing the same thing.....

Tell me this isnt a culture issue.........

If youre going to make accusations , man up

I think Alex Jones had this on his sight as well. I could be mistaking.


Breitbart and Alex Jones claim they are exposing a double standard of reporting by emphasizing this kind of sleazy journalism


But they in-fact often spur racialism

Red ice creations, that use to be a good sight, is now overflowing with this White rage reverse racism crap all over their site


As if racism and slavery isn’t in the past and still affecting the present in which it certainly is


The civil rights movement wasn’t created out of a vacuum

I agree with you 100%. Who cares if multi-billion dollar corporation Walmart (that has treated their employees like slave laborers for decades) gets trashed and robbed? I don't, and I'm glad somebody rips them off for a change.


Two wrongs do not make a right.

Totally agree. Don't see white folks doing this type of thing. Definitely a problem well beyond race.

agreed its a thought process and a cultural issue being perpetuated in these areas......

Look at the difference in black communties from places like this and say South Carolina and how they handled things there...

Huge difference...

What I'm about to write it NOT an excuse or a justification, but my opinion as a student of history.

It *does* appear that there is more mob violence committed by blacks then whites, even though white mob violence DOES exist to a degree.

The question I'm posing is, if this is true, WHY is this (black) mob mentality so prevalent?

My answer is simple, and looks at history:

Whites have, regardless of social status, been privilaged. They have NOT had the same degree of terror, threats, oppression, and stigmatization as have had blacks. When the civil war ended and blacks were freed, and up until the civil rights era, they have been purposefully segregated, pushed to the side, demonized, threatened, pushed into ghettos (a reaction to them being freed, see as unequal, and thereby segregated), and treated as animals culturally and socially. THAT is an historical FACT.

Many of the current living conditions are exactly reflective of the same conditions that have existed for decades. While poor whites have also existed for the same amount of time, their oppression hasn't—because they're white (some might argue they can change these things themselves, as in how their communities are, but I argue there is a certain degree of being stuck in these environments, and the cycle continues even if some do get out of it).

Now, we have come a LONG way, but these sentiments are still present.

My argument is (and I reiterate that's it's NOT an excuse or justification but a simple observation) that the remnants of what I said above about the historicity still remain to a large degree (even if unconsciously social) and might at least explain (but NOT excuse) why we're seeing what we see.

Until THAT problem is addressed, things are unlikely to change much.

Human beings steal because of socio-economic issues - not cultural ones.

There is no black culture of stealing.


Income inequality is the reason for most criminal activity.

Socio-economic conditions and property crime

Economic Crises may Trigger Rise in Crime

but were not talking about simple theft now are we? Were talking about Roving mobs of black kids beating, stealilng and tearing things up.......

Yes there is a cultural issue, and a parenting issue.......that needs to be addressed

You know its not about "theft" , the OP is pretty clear what happened and thats what were addressing

youre leaving out the culture that keeps them in those mind sets and perpetuates the issue with the behaviors...

Ganster Rap, disrespect , glorifying of drugs and thug lifestyle etc...


While I do agree with a lot of your post, youre leaving out THOSE key issues that contribute to this mob mindset mentality to do things like this

It's property crime created by socio-economic conditions.

"...evidence shows that crime is linked to the economic climate. Such findings are consistent with criminal motivation theory, which suggests that economic stress causes an increase in criminal behaviour."

I'm sure you know the answer to that already.

Don't like my articles source? Here's another one: It states that being young and unemployed greatly increases the probability of committing crimes. www.sciencedirect.com...

Socio-economic factors in crime in Germany

It's the same all over the world - it's human, not black. Stop ignoring the economic conditions that create these conditions.
