I'm not saying I have the answers, I am simply pointing out that when the numbers of disenfranchised people reach epidemic levels like we are seeing the cities, that goes for many western cities all over the planet, there is clearly a big problem and that problem is far larger than just people who want to be asshats. Many of these people given the opportunity would be productive citizens that make society better, the problem is they are not being given the opportunities and we can see the results of that.
Given the opportunity?
I'm sorry but you have to have the want and will power to better yourself.
There is no excuse. The only excuses are the one's making them.
I am a direct result of my actions.
In 2008 I decided I was sick of my dead end job. Working for $10 an hour with little to no benefits. I personally made it my miss in to goto the local college and talk to a guidance counselor. I was broke as hell and have kids to take care of.
Thanks to Obama making it easier for people to get federal grants for schooling, they basically paid me to go to college. I took advantage of state grants and signed up for some local scholarships.
I made it through two years of welding technologies and I am now employed making decent money, not alot of money, but better than I have lever done.
No excuses, people can make a difference in their own lives if they quit making excuses and act for themselves.
No car, I didn't have one when I started school. I walked my a $$ up to the school and did my assignments. I bought a car when I got my first federal grant.
This just isn't for people of any race, it is for each and every person.
You have a choice. It may not be an easy choice and the road is hard but determination will get you there.
Thugs are a result of single parent, 'parenting'.
Collecting checks for the many children they don't take care of.
They are drug dealers and thugs, who carry guns.
That culture is glorified by the black community.
Be it in rap music, the clubs or in their own neighborhoods.
They have a 'don't snitch' policy, cause ya that helps.
These morons are this way because they want to be.

Isn't that what the killers think, though? This makes you one of them.
Well, except for the part where a killer actually kills, and someone who doesn't care if a killer is killed isn't the same thing at all.
You called Black_Fox a killer simply because he wished all of these criminals would get killed.
If you would understand the use of logic, you would understand that exactly what you did is exactly as stated in the logical fallacy.
