#11  Back in the old racist days when upper and middle class blacks were segregated together with the lower class, did they have this much violence? You know the time before the Great Society and Big Brother destroyed traditional nuclear families with fathers.

#10  ^ Prolly because it was an early adopter of Midnight Bassetebaw Leagues?

#9  Wow, I live in a nice little rural Nevada community with lots and lots of guns in almost every household. That pesky gun violence thingy has not reared its inanimate head here at all. Could the cause be some other set of factors, perhaps cultural and political? The default response will be the usual racism charge, but the truth remains the same.

#8  ...the logic is to bury anything that may indicate its the community's fault. It's like the old Admiral rule - 1. the Admiral is never wrong, 2. If the Admiral is wrong see point 1.

#7  They seem to think the cops cause gang violence instead of the keep being there as a result of gang violence. Not a lot of logic going on regarding that entire issue.

#6  /\ Ethnic tribal denial. To deny the existence of Twyfelfontein (uncertain spring) UNESCO Namibian cave paintings might be racist. To declare the people of that region have not progressed very far in 40,000 to 60,000 years, also racist.

In some areas, civilization is in a primal, possibly genetic, stand still. A 'new patches to old wine skins' sort of dynamic. Could it be a recipe for failure ?

#5  root causes of #GunViolence

once again easier to pin it on an inanimate object rather than the perpetrator

if there were no guns, they'd be using machetes. if there were no machetes, they'd use clubs. if there were no clubs, they'd use their teeth and fists.

#3  ^ Yes. Can't say "dog." You may, however, say "dawg." But only if you're black.

#2  Well, he certainly realized his wish of living in police-free environment.

p.s. Would it be racist to point out that Caleb comes from Hebrew "kelev" = dog?

#1  We need to address the root causes of #GunViolence so that we stop losing our people.

I have a feeling that the mouth doesn't know what the hand is doing.
