    I happen to know the young man who was killed and yes he was a black man. But there is a mess in all social & race groups; I think there is a lack of respect for themselves and trying to prove something to everyone else. If you all will stop race bashing and really take inventory of the youth around you and reach out to them white or blk; it is satisfying. You will never grow from race bashing.

    How come blacks can’t have a simple joyous event like a birthday party without someone getting shot?
