Dufus: MrBallou: Article gets bonus points for referring to the "gang of five or six black males wearing white T-shirts" as "goons". That word that doesn't get used in journalism as much as it should.

Brings back memories of Union enforcers, don't it? Maybe the carpenter's union has gone rogue.


I like it... Attacked by real goons eh?  Maybe next a group of henchmen will steal something!  This could be just the beginning... A genuine superhero may be about to make a grand entrance!!!

DROxINxTHExWIND: SuperNinjaToad: DROxINxTHExWIND: 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.


Naw, I've got a better one. Imagine if Lex Luther hit Superman with a shrinking ray and locked him in a kryptonite-laced fish tank with Mighty Mouse. Who do you think would win?


I see where you're coming from however you and I know you're being intellectually dishonest because you KNOW what I said to be true!

Can you honestly in your hearts of hearts believe that IF a group of white men savagely beating some random innocent black couple on the streets it WON'T make the national news?

Actually, no. I cannot say that. I agree that if a group of white men savagely beat a random black man it would probably make some national news cycle. The problem is, who are you complaining too? Bob Johnson doesn't own the media. Hell, white people own BET now.  Whose fault is it that, in your eyes, there does not appear to be outrage when the roles are reversed? When Sharpton and Jackson get out to spread the word of some perceived injustice gainst blacks you all biatch about how they're race-baiting trolls.*** But, EVERY one of these threads has a bunch of Farkers calling for the same sort of attention in cases which involve whites. Which is it? Should these things be given attention or not?  Maybe you all need an anglo version of Jesse Jackson to preach about the inequality and bring attention to your plight?


I can't speak for whoever asked that question, but for myself, the double standard infuriates me. It was the only reason I gave half a fark about the Zimmerman case at all. You admitted that interracial violence where the victim is black is over reported and the opposite is also true. It seems to be common knowledge.

So in the wake of all this Trayvon business, when I have to read boo hoo op-ed pieces about "how do I explain this to my teenage son" and whatnot, it pisses me off to no end that the country is made to do all this soul searching and act like the Challenger just blew up again when everyone knows that interracial violence with a white victim is such much more common and even bringing it up makes you some kind of racist.

here to help: DROxINxTHExWIND: Their solution is for "the blacks" to "help their communities", whatever that means. None of them can get their brother-in-law to stop beating their sisters, but I'm supposed to get every black person a job with a living wage that will allow them to be upwardly mobile or I'm the problem.

Well I do agree that at this point the change does definitely have to come from within. There is far too little trust for anyone else to go in and tinker with things now. However what society needs to do is provide them with the resources they need to accomplish this change and make sure that the positive leaders in the community are the ones taking charge (not the JJ's and Sharpton's of the world). This ain't something that can be bootstrapped away.

But I was talking about the more severe dudes rhetoric. Their solution likely has a lot less to do with giving the community ANY benefit of the doubt and is a little more "final" in it's execution. I think we've got two major types of modern racists who prattle on about the crime numbers and stats as a tactic. Those who have not thought about what the next step is and are just squawking and following the herd. Then there are those who want to go back to the old ways of doing things. If the former realized that the only possible out come of their hate is the latter's fix then they might shake their heads and step back from the brink but the talking heads and propaganda artists will never point that out to them.

Fixing poverty, drug issues and lack of proper education are the only real solutions. This goes for ALL at risk communities. That takes money and effort though and would take away talking points for the self serving, power hungry assholes who run things.

I hope things improve in my lifetime but sadly I do not feel too confident.


I don't know how old you are, but I am over 50 and have come to realize my daughter is going to inherit a broken world to live in. It sucks.
She will have to approach her life as I did. With the tack that she will have to work unfairly hard to get success in contrast to the "inner circle" folks who run shiat.
At least she has learned that she is responsible for her own deeds and accepts it. That and some solid values will at least give her a good footing.
She will be able to live with herself, and that is no small thing.

bdub77: The real problem is semiautomatic assault hammers. All it takes is one arm swing. These things are built with precision so you can put brads through a door frame with one good swing. They have a tactical grip for easy swinging. I've seen some guys fire 6, 7 nails into a shingle before you could get down a ladder.

Don't even get me started with assault mallets. You can get some that are made from all wood or rubber and wood so they go through a metal detector.

So, a broken wrist, shot 4 times with a BB gun, several black-eyes and being robbed numerous times fall into that category?
You really want to use that catch-all to cover that?

I'm sorry but although that might seem a little extreme it's not all that uncommon for anyone growing up in a rough neighborhood. Kids are assholes. It is certainly not an excuse to ignore the real issues and simply blame an entire race of people.

Also I'm sure they got it just as bad from your crew. That's the thing about racial tensions. It is a cycle. A give and take. It is very difficult to break that cycle once it has started.


The neighborhood was not rough. It was upper middle class. Houses on my block were 35-40K in 1960. It was only rough for some. The unlucky few. My bad luck was being one of them.
Well, I didn't have a "crew" to belong to. I caught it from both ends. I covered up the broken wrist so nobody would find out. Still paying for that in dull aches and reduced range of motion. The rest was easier to keep from everyone. I did that because I feared what would happen if my dad found out. That would have been worse that anything. For background, dad was an ex-army airforce guy. Life would have been a level of hell beyond thought. Death by meatgrinder would have been better.
I sucked it up. That's what you did back then ("Real men don't cry" and all that BS).

I could no more do anything about my lineage than a person could help their skin tone.

Then you should bloody well know better. However the Italian American community do not face the same hurdles the African American community does. Getting called names and a few neighborhood dust ups is what pretty much most of us grew up with. I sympathize but it really is not the same thing.

Just remembering the hundreds of times I've been shot with a BB gun (and shot right back).

Good times, man.  Good times.


I didn't dare do that. I wasn't allowed any type of gun whatsoever growing up. My dad had his fill of them in the army and that was that.
He probably would have run my ass over with the family Country Squire assault wagon and then planted my dead carcass in the front yard as an admonition to others.
Luckily, mom was a surgical RN and TNR. So I knew how to dig those damned things out with the forceps. Liquid benzocaine was a wonderful thing!

For some reason, someone citing FOUR whole times of being shot with a BB gun makes me think they were a whiney little biatch who got stuffed in lockers. I mean, I did too, but I couldn't even begin to count the number of times I got pegged with a BB gun or a Pellet gun. That was just how the weekends went when you had to make due with your mother's Daisy from 1958 while all the other kids had air rifles made in the same decade.

/*sniff* *sniff* stooped dumb BB gun only pumped once and everyone had better guns and Sean even had a pistol one and Leroy had one you could pump over and over and it REALLY hurt when he shot you up close and sometimes the pellet would go into your skin and it would bleed and you had to dig it out, but you couldn't let your parents know because then everyone would be in trouble and ....

Now here's the problem we should all be pissed off at and it does seem to be uniting the common people despite race. The have nots against our oppressors. Not this attacking each other bullsh*t they try to instigate at every turn. It hasn't reached critical mass yet and think maybe a lot of the race baiting we see going on right now is the powers that be attempting to deflect but the jig is up. People are pissed about what happened during the financial crisis and those feelings are not going away. We'll see. Maybe the next generation WILL focus their rage where it needs to be. God I hope so for their sake. I'm too old and busted up to fight anymore.

Okay well that sounds like you got the sh*t end of white racism which brings me back to my original point. If you were subjected to it can you not feel sympathy for those who still deal with it daily and many times much much worse? In the ghetto you don't just get black eyes. You get shot. If you don't play the game then you are done for. There is no choice and that's why these kids are so angry and desperate. I couldn't imagine having to live like that and I certainly couldn't dream of coming out of it well adjusted. I had it pretty good by comparison and I nutf*ck batters. Anyway... this thread is bumming me out. See ya later.

Well pardon me superman. But the four that made it deep enough I had to dig for them because they would come popping out like the many others that only went in a 1/2 inch or so are hard to forget. Lots of the kids had expesive models, because mom and dad had plenty $. Happily pellet guns were not in the arsenal. Lead is way worse than steel/copper.

It might make you think "whiney little biatch", Mr ITG. But I quietly dealt with it all. And nobody had to deal with the retribution I would have perhaps preferred, but was raised to think and act better.

/I keed. But seriously, I post a (tongue-in-cheek) weepy account of getting P0wned by kids with pellet guns while I clutch my mommy's decrepit Daisy, and that qualifies as "internet tough" guy? You and I have radically different understanding of badassery.

Yea, no.  I was a pawn in the forced-integration the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system thought was wonderful.  Intelligent kids, not just white, just kids with parents who were just as invested in them as the kids themselves, were bused into shiat schools.  I mean shiat, shiat, shiatty schools.  My middle school was under a farking highway overpass.  We were put on lockdown weekly because of gunplay.

In a school over 2,000 students they bused in roughly 3-400 kids to shore up the test numbers.  Most of us were white, but all through the IB program, it was relatively diverse.  As a white kid surrounded by black kids, I was beat up, insulted, had guns and knives pulled on me, for no other reason than the fact that I was white.  It wasn't just the students, either.

The worst part was how horribly the kids treated the black IB students.  They had it soooo much worse than the white kids did.  The 'hood' kids were absolutely relentless in their torture of the black kids who wanted to succeed.  Told them, while beating them up for learning, to stop acting white.

Suggesting that discrimination doesn't happen is absolutely silly, but at the same time there are a lot of internal problems in the communities that get blamed away.  Learning and bettering yourself weren't (aren't?) cool.

Okay... well that plan was destined to fail from the get go. What a bunch of idiots. You don't toss good kids into the bad schools and think it's gonna solve anything. You make the crummy schools better or give the kids in the crummy schools a chance to go to the good schools. And what the hell do they think injecting white kids into black schools is gonna do anyway? Make the black kids whiter? Fuggin' ridiculous.

On a semi related note the whole concept of basing school funding on performance is ludicrous. Fund the schools equally per student. No f*ckin' around. That kind of crap just sends the bad schools into a downward spiral and doesn't even make sense.

There should be NO crummy schools no matter where they are or who goes there.

It's like the idiots in the Paula Deen threads saying "Everybody says that word... you're lying if you say you haven't!" I most certainly do NOT say that word the way they mean it and the only times I have said it were when I was actually talking about the word itself (and even then it makes me cringe) or maybe a couple of times when I was kid before anyone told me what it actually meant.

Schools also receive a significant amount of funding based on local property taxes. So poor neighborhoods inevitably lead to underfunded schools. We're the only 1st world country that heavily ties school funding to property taxes and it's a major source of the inequality in school funding.

But we're getting off topic. Since I didn't see it I should probably link to the Salon piece on how  conservatives really want there to be a secret black crime wave. Which basically explains all racists above moaning about how unfair it is that the news doesn't confirm their race war fantasy.

Yes, well.  I never said it was a good idea.  Frankly the only thing I took away from it was prejudice, and I don't like it.  I don't like it, but I'll be the first to admit that my experiences have made me prejudiced.

For the longest time I absolutely considered it racism.  I recognize now that it's farking douchebags I'm prejudiced against, but being forced into shiatty, ghetto schools exposed me to such an outrageous number of douchebags, mostly black, that, as a kid, pretty much defined my view of the black community.  It wasn't until I was older that I fully understood that douche is douche, regardless of race or creed.

But we're getting off topic. Since I didn't see it I should probably link to the Salon piece on how  conservatives really want there to be a secret black crime wave. Which basically explains all racists above moaning about how unfair it is that the news doesn't confirm their race war fantasy.


People worry about flash mobs? This is news to me. The article should have been "here's what I think about a book some crank sent me."

 they are wondering why a group of young black males are randomly attacking males of a very-specifically-not-mentioned-ethnicity (which usually means white, or at least non-black, in media-speak)?

 i have the sad, sinking feeling this is likely going to be a martin/zimmerman related thing when they get to the bottom of it.

gja: I don't know how old you are, but I am over 50 and have come to realize my daughter is going to inherit a broken world to live in.


Considering that you were broken-wristed, multiply shot, beaten, robbed, etc. in your youth 40-50 years back---I'd say that you also inherited a fairly broken world. Although I think it's the reason that my father became a caricature of superman with the bodybuilding---being the last white kid in Brooklyn (Brownsville) in the 50s-60s.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Fano: DROxINxTHExWIND: 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.


Naw, I've got a better one. Imagine if Lex Luther hit Superman with a shrinking ray and locked him in a kryptonite-laced fish tank with Mighty Mouse. Who do you think would win?

Glad to see you admit we live in a world where these scenarios are equally likely.


If it's "better" then they are not equal. Your snark fails.


He could mean that both are equally likely but one is more fun or interesting than the other.  More generally, they could be equally X but one more Y than the other, for any two qualities X and Y.

I see where you're coming from however you and I know you're being intellectually dishonest because you KNOW what I said to be true!

Can you honestly in your hearts of hearts believe that IF a group of white men savagely beating some random innocent black couple on the streets it WON'T make the national news?

Actually, no. I cannot say that. I agree that if a group of white men savagely beat a random black man it would probably make some national news cycle. The problem is, who are you complaining too? Bob Johnson doesn't own the media. Hell, white people own BET now.  Whose fault is it that, in your eyes, there does not appear to be outrage when the roles are reversed? When Sharpton and Jackson get out to spread the word of some perceived injustice gainst blacks you all biatch about how they're race-baiting trolls.*** But, EVERY one of these threads has a bunch of Farkers calling for the same sort of attention in cases which involve whites. Which is it? Should these things be given attention or not?  Maybe you all need an anglo version of Jesse Jackson to preach about the inequality and bring attention to your plight?



Ahh! see so you're actually agreeing with me w/o even realizing it. The fact is what most of what you say is true except for one lil bit which makes all the difference in the world. There were white versions of Jackson and Sharpton in the past but hasn't been in while.. any white person who is brave and/or foolish enough to publicly do all the dog and pony show like what Al and Jesse does in regards to race will be dragged out flogged and publicly shamed. At the very least their career will be over.

The fact that in the USA of 2013 the general public not only puts up with and tolerate folks like Sharpton and Jackson but actually pay them handsomely for their tirades while not the other way around speaks volumes! If you can't recognize that then you're in denial.

I'm not the one who is biatching about unfair treatment by the media. Apparently, blacks aren't the only ones who can play the race card.

Really? So your bias is a figment of the many Farkers and Farekettes who have queried you and called you out on your bias?


Uh, what?  Who has queried  DROxINxTHExWIND and called him out on his bias?  I must have missed that.

Pretend you're smarter than you are for a moment, Droxie.

Imagine... for a moment... that your goal is artificially stir up interracial unrest... and ask yourself:

Is it better to agitate only one side, or to agitate both sides?

/It doesn't take a genius to figure it out
//But there is no shortage of morons....
///Stupidly playing along

US vs THEM!!!
