I'am not sure what they hope to accomplish by trashing the city. Burning cars, throwing bricks, bottles, at police officers. Shit isn't going to make things better it's only going to exacerbate the situation. I agree with PurpleDjango, people are definitely using the situation only to further their own gain.

Can I ask when's the last time you went to a church in one of the areas where there is "black-on-black" violence. Or the last time you joined and volunteered to be a mentor in one of these areas? When's the last time you saw news media doing story on Big Brothers/Big Sisters, or "Help One Student to Succeed?" Is it because the media gets ratings through violence? Probably so.

You always say we don't care about "black-on-black" crime yet we have so many groups dedicated to mentoring and assisting youth. Have you never heard of the NAACP? Community cleanups, community gardens, or community school supplies? No? Maybe because you only get your "info" from the media that's focused on violence and don't live in such areas or have experienced such a life. There are groups out here trying to mentor and assist others, maybe you should volunteer for one. That way you can help stop "black-on-black" crime.

As mentioned in the thread I closed late last night, I'm not currently amenable to discussions on this topic in these forums.

The level of maturity and respect shown there was -way- below what is tolerable, and I do not have the time, nor do my moderators have the time to take care of a thread on the subject.

Regards,
