85% of all interacial attacks

85% of all interacial attacks are Black perps on White victims, yet Whites aren't suppose to see this elephant in the room.

Blacks commit 80% of all violent crimes and again Whites are not supposed to see that elephant in the room.

It is not racism it is realism. If Blacks wish to change their image it must start with Blacks themselves.

These statistics are from the Federal Government. Read the articles here in the Chronicle and the suspects are almost always described as "Black males".

rmorris - you know by now

rmorris - you know by now that the black community will apparently never take responsibility for themselves or attempt to clean up their issues of violent crimes, laziness, lack of education, lack of birth control, lack of parental responsibility, etc. They just want to scream racism and injustice and profiling, etc. Just look at the issues that organizations like the NAACP and others like it focus their time and resources on. It is always easier to blame others than to fix your own problems. The crime, incarceration, and welfare statistics don't lie even if they don't want to believe them.

rmorris, please stop focusing

rmorris, please stop focusing on color of skin and start focusing on the fact that these crooks are THUGS. That says it all. Had they been white or hispanic, would it have mattered. wcr250, I believe you voted for Obama b/c your post made absolutely NO sense. Trying to appear you are not a supporter???

Most crimes are no more than

Most crimes are no more than crimes of opportunity. When businesses are telling their employees that they can't have guns to defend themselves, the criminal is going to take advantage of this. The same goes with white-collared crimes. When business people know they are going to get a slap on the wrist, they are going to continue to do it.

Same old story every week. I

Same old story every week. I guess we'll get to the point where you can't say black when describing robberies because it's RCR and Cparker's favorite word of Racism. What needs to happen is putting a bullet in anyone who comes out of a place of business with a gun in their hand.

I always thought technology

I always thought technology and armed guards would keep anyone from successfully robbing a bank these days. I guess I was wrong.

I really do not care what

I really do not care what color their skin is, if they commit such a crime they need to be put down by whatever means. I do not discriminate according to race, national origin, religion, or sex, where criminals are concerned. I am tired of bullies in here putting down those of color in here. Those are the type of comments I would like to see the AC start deleting from these forums. I am going to start clicking on the "commentis inappropiate icon from now on when there are comments that are derogatory to any group. You others who are sick of the same can start doing the same and maybe the AC will clean up some of the trash that is put in here. Race baiting serves no purpose in this forum !

The fact remains that two

The fact remains that two black males with guns committed this robbery. Therefore, the police will be looking for two black males. It is not race baiting or racial profiling. Why would the police look anywhere else? If the crime were committed by 2 white males, I would expect the police to be looking there. Get over it. Instead, consider what we can do for our community to stop this. How do we get rid of the thugs in our community that are committing these type of crimes. What do we have to do to make our community better for all people?

Too bad the guy in the blue

Too bad the guy in the blue was not packing. It is THE ONLY ANSWER! Kill or be killed he would have been a hero. I'm packing everyday and if I get to my trunk or my house all hell will break loose, I've got enough 40 round mags and ammo boxes to fill the bed of a pickup truck. I am begging for some of the shtf to go down around me.
