Solution: Ban hammers.

Begoggle: They were arrested and will probably be convicted with appropriate sentences.
So you can probably assume that Sharpton and Jackson condemn them just like everyone else does.
But you probably think you're really clever, right?


Just like Sharpton and Jackson praised the fair and expedient justice system in the Tawana Brawley and Duke Lacrosse cases too, right?

Otto_E_Rodika: 85% of African-American males abandon their children - of course, this can have no bearing on why young black males might be anti-social, and therefore attack people with hammers. Solution, ban hammers.

44% of African-Americans are functionally illiterate - ban hammers
54% of African-Americans graduate high school - ban hammers
78% of the murderers in Chicago are African-American (as are most of their victims) - ban hammers


The headline was a joke. No one is banning hammers.

redlegrick: In other news, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that he plans to ban everything and everyone in New York City. Says the Mayor: "It's apparent that since it's people doing anything at all that seem to cause the most problems for other people, the only solution is to completely evacuate

execute everyone in the city. Last one to leave please turn the lights out. That is all," before he retired to his heavily-fortified compound in Connecticut to enjoy a bonfire of aborted fetuses, Bibles and hundred-dollar bills...

Fixed. We are talking about Bloomberg here.

FLMountainMan: SuperNinjaToad: where's the outrage? imagined if a bunch of white thugs savagely beating up an innocent black couple. It'll be BREAKING NEWS on all channels and rioting all over.

Yes, because it would be so remarkable.  What's your point exactly?

We've accepted that black people commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime in this country (the vast majority against other black people).  This article describes someone getting beat up by a bunch of black guys and people here are assuming it's a white guy so we can get all Zimmermany.


More info from CBS:

Blood was being washed down at the entrance to the Martin Luther King Jr. Houses on Fifth Avenue in Harlem, where both attacks took place.
"It's unbelievable," said neighbor Willie Herrera, "a shame, a real shame."
The attacks happened just above the northeast corner of Central Park, on Fifth Avenue at 113th Street, just after 12:30 a.m. Monday.
A 24-year-old resident of the houses, Daniel Legette, had just left his building when he was hit from behind with a hammer. He ran west, and was discovered shirtless and intoxicated a block away.


Come on, working class white Farkers, you can stereotype a bunch of BLAH going wild with this.

HARLEM!
MLK!
HOUSING PROJECTS!
INTOXICATED RESIDENTS!

It will make you feel better about the abuse you receive from the social classes above you on Fark.  You may have little education and few job prospects, but at least you live in the Ozarks and not surrounded by Harlem people.

master_dman: here to help: master_dman: Why don't you check out the FBI statistics on black on white crime and get back to me on that one sparky.

I live in an area where there are very few black people and yet there are still brawls, break ins, home invasions, murders, etc. These crimes are primarily committed by the white folk. You know what they have in common with the black folk you are so desperate to blame all your problems on? They are poor, desperate, screwed over by an uncaring system, have drug problems, messed up home lives and arrest records over meaningless crap that prevent them from moving ahead in life.

Look at the real problems in society instead of playing the blame game. Now be gone. I grow weary of your antics.

Good for you.  Now quadruple that in any area that has more than 10 black people.



July 20:

Five people were shot when a gunman opened fire on a family near a Brooklyn, N.Y., park Saturday - and some friends suggested the gunplay was retaliation because one of the victims had gone to the cops about a milkshake tossed in his daughter's face.

tortilla burger: I'm hoping that eventually the gangs will run out of things to use as weapons and will be forced to learn kung fu to carry out violence. Then we'll have rival gangs dueling with kung fu. I'm okay with that

Solution: Ban hammers.

/frickin' genius

So, they should ban blacks? I'm not following your reasoning. I'm sure the African-American residents are just as disturbed about it as you are.

As in all cases, as long as the perpetrators are black, we can ignore the real problem and focus on the fake one.

85% of African-American males abandon their children - of course, this can have no bearing on why young black males might be anti-social, and therefore attack people with hammers.  Solution, ban hammers.

44% of African-Americans are functionally illiterate - ban hammers
54% of African-Americans graduate high school - ban hammers
78% of the murderers in Chicago are African-American (as are most of their victims) - ban hammers

And on and on.  It is all about creating distractions from the black community taking responsibility for the cesspool they've helped create, and with the glorification of thug culture, now celebrate.  Meanwhile, instead of addressing the underlying causes and starting to fix things, instead we will look at "Stand Your Ground" and hammers.


Ahhhh, yes. That's what I was waiting for. I knew it was just under the surface. You're talking about literacy and graduation and your dumb ass didn't even read the article to find out that no one is banning hammers. I guess the traits that make it harder for black people to succeed are not exclusive to one race. Thatnks for showing us that anyone can be lazy.

fireclown: A club bouncer friend of mine alerted me to a new and improved ethnic stereotype last winter:  Haitians carry hammers.  Pretty much because it's legal and you can mess someone up with a hammer.  Has anyone else run across this?  As a story or in real life?


Hells Angels carry ball peen hammers. Watched a documentary. Could of been drunk.

This is the New York Post, quoting anonymous police sources. It's just as likely that the perpetrators were a gang of old ladies in black dresses, using umbrellas.

I can speak to about half of that one.  There is a long tradition among biker types of carrying heavy mag-lights.  I imagine it's part of the reasons that police carry them as well.
