To me, there's a not-so-subtle difference between protesters and scum.

I don't agree with the position the protesters take on the issue, but I know they're not there to loot and assault. Those that are... are scum, and should be thrown in jail.

This reminds me of when Muslims attacked embassies all over the world because of a cartoon.

Democrats are the Islamists of America.

Big Beef Burrito: God damn, subby, you really took it to the next level.

Did the admins change this headline from something that was originally funny or well-crafted?

Yeah, seriously


No, its neither funny, nor well-crafted in the traditional sense, but sometimes a headline comes along that's just guaranteed to bring out the crazy.

This is that headline.

Probably driven crazy by non-stop FOX News whining about the lack of violence, needing to leave the house, and hoping that a new TV would have Netflix so they could chill out.

Finding that TeaParty agents provocateur had already broken doors and were aquiring the finer stock taking advantage of people just needing to be around people instead of incessant propaganda and electronic attention whores.

Some white guy got acquitted for shooting a black
And so now Wal-Mart is getting ransacked

Well, that finally happened. Now we can all go home.

But, does the Wal-Mart look any worse than Black Friday? Were more or less people killed?

I think the issue is that the Weenersor and some after have suggested that the people were violent because their skin color has some effect on their disposition. That is what I believe Pinchu is reffering too.

When it comes to rioting over the death of a black man, anyone who is not black is, by default, white.

It still annoys me that people think that rioting will help in some way to relieve racial tensions.  Acting like a fool because you don't agree with something just makes you look worse.  If a "peaceful protest" involves violence, vandalism, fire, etc., it is neither "peaceful" nor a "protest".

/As with other events, I think that there are some who were just waiting (and perhaps hoping) for an excuse to riot.  During all this, there are many blacks who are assuredly just as flabbergasted by the stupidity of the situation.

Ahhhhh gotcha

Yea, idiots are idiots. I don't think it matters what skin color they were born with. Especially if you live in Vancuver and burn your own city down because you lost the Cup to the Big Bad Bruins.

Exactly.

I also see a whole lot of Trayvon people here citing riots by white people that didn't happen in the United States. You're a failure if you cite things that didn't happen here. Different laws, different lives, different mindset about their different society, etc.

And a riot is NOT having a little fire outside the Staples Center in LA (for clarification).

Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer sent a letter Monday to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder supporting the Justice Department decision to review the case to determine whether Martin's civil rights were violated.

As much as I think Zimmerman needed to be punished, they need to back off. Boxer's desire to keep this rolling to probably another conclusion that exonerates him is stupid and pandering.
 
2013-07-16 10:55:49 AM  
Having lived in Lansing, I've watched hordes of lily-white middle-class college students riot and trash their own town over something as stupid as a football game, so I really don't buy the whole idea that this is a racial tendency. It's herd mentality. It's mob mentality. People (mostly you filthy extroverts) get in big crowds, and suddenly you surrender the ability to think for yourself and you do whatever the crowd is doing.

This isn't a Black/White thing. This is an extrovert/introvert thing. There were plenty of African American introverts who didn't join the mob, didn't loot or pillage, and instead stayed home and watched a movie, cooked some dinner, and maybe hugged their family.

I'd better see at least two Foot Lockers and three Best Buy's ransacked and torched.
 
2013-07-16 10:57:47 AM  
I'm not saying that looting should be a capital crime, but I am saying that society as a whole would be much better off if these people were to suddenly not exist anymore.

Ding.

In addition, like I've said before, the protestors in this case have been saintly in comparison to other riots, especially considering the root causes (death of a man vs sports outcome).

Not skin color, but culture. Unfortunately, one skin color in particular gravitates towards that culture. Please explain to me how and why pretty much everyone knew what "race" would be primarily taking part and leading these riots before it happened? Is that not cause for alarm or curious to you that before I even click the link, I probably know what I am going to see? Before the trial is over, we can predict what will happen? Is it sad that certain locations, we know if a sports team wins/loses, we know there will be looting and riots perpetuated primarily by a certain ethnic group?

No one is that dense to believe it is because of skin color. It has nothing to do with skin color. I would be curious to see a poll of people who think GZ is guilty and reason for believing so broken down by race. I can guarantee you that the black vote would HEAVILY reflect that GZ is guilty, and the other races would be on the fence. Who are the racists there? The ones that vote based on obvious bias, or everyone else? The criminals here are the ones rioting. I do not believe they represent the whole, but one race in particular makes up the vast majority OF the rioters. The bad thing is, no one can openly criticize the rioters without being labeled a racist. We cannot talk openly or ask questions, because asking questions and being curious why the disparity in race participation is racist. Can't we move past that petty bullshiat so we can actually you know, fix the real problem?

So many different factions of white people who differ from the "normals". Lets see:

> poor white trash
> the far left
> the far right
> neo nazis
>  meathead jocks
> fundamentalists
> Tea Partiers
> hippie scum
> yuppie scum
> guidos
> bikers
> anti-government types

When any of the people in these groups commits an atrocity, its not "white" people who are to blame, its not because "white" people have not been raised properly, its not because white people hate authority, its not because white people are inherently violent. But if a few black people tear something up its a "cultural" thing.
