I hope that he is charged if he was the one that shot the girl. Overall, though, that is irrelevant to my point.

Easy out for you.
If you admit to being street wise, you admit to stereotyping.
The subject of the OP, that we have been commenting on, happened in real life.... not on an Internet forum.
You are playing games.


It is irrelevant.

You falsely assumed that this was a gang banger just because of the car that was at the scene. He could be a gang banger for all we know, but it is illogical to assume something just based on the car they drive.

That was my point and I have already shown the fallacy in your thinking.

Those who can, do.

Those who cant say they can all day every day on the internet.


Wouldn't that also apply to the puffed-chest machismos trying to inflate their credibility by claiming to be street wise?

Could be overweight middle-aged men that have never left Redneck, Arkansas trying to suppress their inadequacies by talking about their street creds.

Such is the internet.

Actually that assumption ended up being correct, reinforcing that stereotypes exist for a reason.

The member admitted that stereotyping works, if one wants to be streetwise, but refuses to admit to being streetwise.

Fail.
Where did I state that this crime was carried out by a gangbanger.
The quote that you found was me responding to your assertion that gangbangers only drive gray Impalas.

Do you understand what I am asking for?
Or are you being disingenuous?

Sounds like a family got into a gang infested area. Not totally uncommon for this to happen, and it truly shows where the gun problem in America is actually at.


Thank you for seeing the obvious and commenting.

Gang members (criminals) should not have assess to guns.

It really hasn't been like that at all.
Mostly about cars.
Funny thing.

The family says they were in the area looking for a tire shop.


Looking for a tire shop, at night with the family in the car?



I see your point.

The family had a flat just down the road, changed to the donut spare, and was looking for a tire shop.

I have been there myself in a small town in South Carolina responding to an ice storm and depending on my GPS (her name is 'Lola).

OR

This nefarious individual took his family to this "KZ' to buy dope…?

Does not compute.

Thank you.

Not a big loss, I'm sure.

No matter. I'm done here. This debate is about to come full circle and I don't like to play that game.

I still stand by my original premise.

Stereotyping does have it's place in some real world situations, but as a tool being used in a debate is not logical when little or no evidence is available, and it only empowers the ignorant and bigoted.

Grey impalas are a car I learned to be wary of early in life...no matter which side of the law. You haven't lived if you don't know that.


Grey Impalas are known for shooting people?


Are you deliberately being obtuse or are you just THAT naive ???


It's definitely not the family's fault, but any American who has lived in pretty much any medium sized city or larger, and has any common street sense knows to be very mindful or where you are and what the local streets and businesses start to look like.

They never should have pulled into a residential complex in the first place, but certain cars are known as hoodlum favorites, particularly full--size american sedans, and ESPECIALLY IMPALAS.

I've been places that if I had to stop at a red light I made sure I was not boxed in, and could easily pull around the other stopped cars just in case someone approached my vehicle.

I don't dispute the need to be cautious and proactive. That is a given.

Ok. But if someone commits a crime and happens to be driving an Impala, do we automatically assume it's a "hoodlum"?

Is that logical?

It would be more than likely knowing the streets.
