    Many Black youths were brainwashed into believing being violent is cool.. The biggest perperators are the Black Entertainment and Rappers.

    The black leaders and preachers don’t want the crime to stop because they like it f u c k e d up just the way it is. The community likes to sleep in until noon anyway. Last I heard they are pushing the blacks to the suburbs so the whites can move into the city to be closer to their jobs, that’s the new welfare prison.

      To the Killer: You are now a FUGITIVE. You had better climb on a Spacecraft and head for the MOON. If you stay on Earth they’re going to hunt you down and take you down just like the animal that you are.

      From now on, people will have to reproduce on the Moon and on Mars. If you have 2 kids on Earth when you are 18, then by the age of 36, you will have to emigrate to the Moon and Mars to reproduce more children. We have to populate the Moon and Mars with people as soon as possible. We have to plant 1,000 trees, make lakes and streams, build a global magnetic field, etc. There’s lots of work to be done.

    we really need to get these guns off the streets and fast cause there are alot of innocent people being hurt or maned for life and i am hoping some politicians stand up and say enough is enough already.

      DOn’t know how old you are but this has been going on since the 1950’s and before in minority neighborhoods nationwide. Generationafter generation refuding to stay in school,not have childrena nd make somethung productive of yourself. Thes people have children at an early age and produce todays current criminals. They will have children and have the next generation. Investors already have figured out how many new prisons they will nedd and how much money they will make..
      Any politician that criticizes the people gets thrown out so they arent going to do much other than complain about search and frisk tactics of the police.
      Nothing will change until the people believe that education is the key to stopping the cycle and poverty.

  • Purple People

    All of you make great comments to justify your postions, however none of you are really ready to have a decit conversation as to why our socieity allows tragic things to happen to our communities. This issue is bigger than a race but rather its a matter of economics, education, culture and opportunty. We should all look at the bigger picture because we all live in this world together.

      Mr. Bolden is Black, and he’s the current Administrator of NASA. He was appointed by Pres. Obama. He is a model Black person. More Black youths should emulate him. More Black youths should be represented in Space, as Astronauts. They would make wonderful Astronauts, I’m sure. And the pay is great!

  • Gregg

    Agree. When are the black leaders in our society ,including Obama going to do anything to stop this increasing crime ? More police are not the answer and the prisons are so full, they have just become a revolving door for criminals !

  • nyc

    poverty welfare culture, baby mama’s with no stability or fathers in the home leads to violence and thuggery…plus the thug is considered cool so they are fixated! End welfare and end this system that breeds this SHIZZ!!!

  • Mel

    Nice homework… maybe next you should do a report on the history of systemic racism in this country and see why minorities are more likely to fall into these types of statistics.

    • xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • Mike

        We can only hope that he does. If that is the only thing he does, his presidency has to be considered a success.
