Doesn't really warrant a newsflash but +1 on the headline anyway.
 
2014-01-24 05:31:37 PM  
The other ones weren't newsworthy either.

There's a town in Arkansas called Pine Bluff. The town is predominately black. There is a branch of the University of Arkansas there...University of Arkansas Pine Bluff, or UAPB. When I lived there everyone joked that UAPB stood for You Are Probably Black. White people could get a minority scholarship to go there.

Four suspects to shoot one victim? What did the other three do, hold him down?
 
2014-01-24 05:35:34 PM  
Excuse me, not newsflash worthy I meant.
 
2014-01-24 05:41:45 PM  
Well I agree with  subby, CNN doesn't count as news media.
 
2014-01-24 06:06:09 PM  
This is certainly a black mark on this college

CNN is "media?"

I only go there if I want an update on Justin Bieber or a random Kardashian. Which is never.
 
2014-01-24 07:45:33 PM  
Sounds like a dog bites man story.   If they covered every black on black crime, there wouldn't be any time at all to talk about the latest blonde girl abduction.

FOX news headline, if written, will probably be something along the lines of, "Signs of Progress at South Carolina State University."

That's racist!!!
Clever subby, the richest kind.

No.

But if you think FOX news doesn't have a white conservative bias, you've been in suspended animation for a decade or more.

You should really feel bad you have nothing better to do with your time then type such tripe
 
2014-01-24 08:12:26 PM  
Given the lack of attention so far, I gotta call the headline a bust subby.
 
2014-01-24 08:15:27 PM  
One person getting shot isn't news. This is America.
The only difference race makes is that the motive might be gang related.

To me "historically black college" just says it wasn't some crazed white kid on a killing spree because mom stopped paying for his Xbox live subscription.

Because there are black gangs, and hispanic gangs, and asian gangs, but *nobody* has ever seen a white gang.

Haha! Is funny because black people do nothing but commit crime!
 
2014-01-24 08:44:07 PM  
This is sad.  Just finished watching the local and national news, not a peep about it, this headline is the first I've heard about it.

dafuq news media, it only counts when us white folk get shot trying to improve ourselves?

/ anyone else see msnbc interrupt a senator yesterday for "news" that Bieber was granted bail?
// I has a sad
/// news junkie who took CNN off his channel list years ago
 
2014-01-24 08:47:34 PM  
Well, it was on the media that I heard about it, being my regular Earthlink newsfeed, channel 9 news here in L.A., and then of course Fark.

Is subby under the impression that these are not "media" or that unless it gets BREAKING NEWS on 750 channels it's being ignored by the "media" and so we should be outraged?

Generally speaking, we don't get newsbreaks when one person gets shot, subby's expectations to the contrary.

Not all of them....the 20% currently locked up in jail aren't out committing crime.

Judging by the comments in this thread you would think that simply being black was a crime...

so you mean we haven't caught the other 80%...

Pssst.....you can't watch TV any night of the week when they aren't talking about a golf cart drive by shooting at the country club, or those damn state troopers driving by and shooting up the city police building.  Don't even get me started on the bankers.   Damn cracka gang bangers.  Maybe we can get Clayton Bigsby to clear this shiat up.

/unions....yeah you're right on that one...just ask Jimmy Hoffa...just bring a jack hammer when you go to ask.

Sure there is...on "Gangland."  The hundreds or thousands of professed gang members each  in MS13, 18th St, Latin Kings, ____ Crips, ____ Bloods, Eme, and  Folk Nation slinging dope and  gunning each other down  are totally the same as 12 hilbillies in the woods screeching white power, getting fat,  and shooting at tree stumps.

People get shot in and around big cities and college campuses (including my alma mater - two died while I attended). but only the nutjobs who would be called "school shooters" go and get eleventy guns, a jillion knives, a bajillion rounds of ammo, leave clues on their facebook pages and a 400 page manifesto on their computers.

"See, they're just as bad!" is not a good way to excuse all the crazy white boys shooting up schools damn near every month, submitter.

What about prison race gangs like the Aryan Brotherhood? I mean most of them look slavic or irish but they're still technically white.

We have lots of white gangs around here, but they're mostly called "police departments."

Well, we have seen them, but generally they just do choreographed strutting and finger snapping.

For a shooting thread this one sucks. Does everybody already have a hangover? You Farkers can do better than this.
 
2014-01-25 08:23:39 AM  
Seeing that tthe link is to a full page CNN article I would say yes, but 6/10 on the race baiting.
