Someone vandalized the athletic facility at Lucy C. Laney High School over the weekend.
Between 11 p.m. Friday and about 12:30 p.m. Saturday someone who entered the athletic facility at the school's stadium threw a computer through the window of the head coach's office and ransacked it, according to a Richmond County sheriff's report. The word 9th Ward was also drawn on the walls and floor of the facility.
A metal medicine ball was thrown through the window of a film room, and the concession area was sprayed with a fire hydrant. The estimated cost of the damages was not known.

I was just at the stadium for

I was just at the stadium for my niece's AR Johnson soccer game Friday and was so happy to see people out for that and the Laney basketball game. I was thinking how pretty the stadium was and how glad I was that no one had messed it up since a nice new brick wall is a canvas for graffiti. I'm so sad for them and hope the person who did it is caught and punished big time.

People can't handle the truth. Why blame blacks on this stuff? I don't know of any whites who would break into the place and spray paint "9th Ward", now maybe if they have written "White Power" or such then yes of course, but "9th Ward" well that sounds like a fellow lost brother. And yes I too am black and went to Laney and graduated from there class of 93.

I am a black man living in

I am a black man living in reality unlike the most of you. It is what it is. It was only a matter of time before something like this happened. I am shocked it took this long, and the "revitalization" of Laney Walker is a complete waste of tax payers dollars if you ask me, unless you revitalize the people or condemn them then give it a few years and it will look like the ghetto it is.

Countyman it is black people

Countyman it is black people like you that are holding us back as a race. Every time something like this happens you are quick to bring up white people or blame white racist. That card has made Jesse Jackson a lot of money, if you dont believe me go ask him. Why don't you take responsibility and see it for what it is. Is it the White Man's fault that there are more 18-25 year old black men in jail than in college? I think not, our generation has failed these young men these days and we need to take control and put hope back in these men. It starts at home with a strong family, something that is lacking in the black community. Just real talk.

Actually, Augfootball, I

Actually, Augfootball, I think it's the other way around. I believe the blacks living and attending Laney are proud of "THEIR" school and stadium. That's why they will find who did this. Similar incidents have happened in Columbia County involving white kids, as Countyman said. It happens.

Im not black. Im a regular white guy in Augusta. And please save the false stats for someboy else. This is how I can tell you're not black. The dudes from stormfront use the same stats on black people lol.

Jail can go from age 18-66. While college is age 18-24.

Age 18-24 there are 5 times as many black men in college than jail.

Countyman all I can say is

Countyman all I can say is you don't know me. I am black and would be happy to meet you any where and buy you lunch and share some knowledge with you. Why do you question me as being black? Because I don't see things the way you do? Look man, my eyes are wide open and I see things for what they are. But I can tell you I meet brothers like you everyday who think I am wrong for my views on politics, race, and life in general.

Countyman where are you

Countyman where are you getting your information. Here is a report from the Justice Dept. Its all there in black and white. http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0881455.html

" About 10.4% of the entire African-American male population in the United States aged 25 to 29 was incarcerated, by far the largest racial or ethnic group—by comparison, 2.4% of Hispanic men and 1.2% of white men in that same age group were incarcerated. According to a report by the Justice Policy Institute in 2002, the number of black men in prison has grown to five times the rate it was twenty years ago. Today, more African-American men are in jail than in college. In 2000 there were 791,600 black men in prison and 603,032 enrolled in college. In 1980, there were 143,000 black men in prison and 463,700 enrolled in college. "

Glass, people are blinded by

Glass, people are blinded by race. It runs both ways, hence the president we have now. I am saddened by the fact that the reason Obama was elected because people voted on race. It is amazing how many folks I have come across wearing Obama apparel but couldn't tell me who Joe Biden was or Nancy Pelosi. And he is running this country into the ground. But you can't tell many fellow black people that, all they see is black man as president and they have to support him. Many blacks have no clue about any of his policies, all they hear is "free healthcare" with the word "free" standing out.
