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

FTFA:  TV news helicopters showed some people kicking and punching others along the street, including two people sitting on a bus bench.

Wonder if the victims were white by chance? If so, DOJ needs to get all over this.

I Browse: Frederick: Maybe if the outrage over a black youth being killed wasnt so selective I'd be more supportive.  It seems clear to me the elevation of this incidence is due to the killer being of a different race and not about justice.

Here are examples of two other cases of black unarmed teens being killed by someone of a different race, and neither has gotten the media attention that this one did:

Michael David Dunn shot a 17 year old black kid over loud music

John Henry Spooner shot a 13 year old black kid because he claimed the kid stole guns from him

Why do you suppose those cases have gotten so little national attention, while this one has gotten so much? What do you think the major difference is?

Did Obama think that either of those victims could have been just like the son he never had?

I agree it's bad.
I'm still going to call out people who act like only one type of people riot.

go ahead, call out all those imaginary people who claim that only "one type of people" riot.

I hope that it makes you happy.

Also, why don't you call out all those people who claim that the majority of rioters are right handed?

Yeah, that will teach them a lesson.

The irony here, is that if they keep breaking into stores and assaulting people one of them will get shot, and the shooter will be acquitted.

super_grass: Civil_War2_Time: ZeroCorpse: 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 have an honest question for you...

Did those people show up with assault rifles like last night? Or, did they just burn some couches and break a few windows?

I was listening to the police feed last night, and "eight black males with AK-47's and M-16's at Crenshaw and MLK." Also, "12 black and Hispanic males with assault rifles, use of force is authorized, and the 'Rammer Van' is good to go" in that same area.

Mob mentality is one thing, but showing up with assault rifles and AK-47's and M-16's is completely different.

You just opened yourself to a devastatingly clever comparison to the Tea Party that will no doubt reveal your racial hatred and far right allegiances.

Funny cause I thought the second amendment was there to protect the rights of the citizens to bear arms. And as george proved you also need it for self defence.

the conservative crowd should be in 100% support of these fellows arming up to protect themselves from government tyranny.

Proving that racial stereotypes, indeed, have a basis in reality.

I guess the G8 Summit should tell us something about people on the far left.


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.

In protest of this racially charged issue, I suggest Farkers completely trash this thread.

All for the sake of truth and enlightenment of course.

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.
