    We don't have a white community.

    When white guys storm schools and murder children no one ever thinks to open their mouth and say 'well the white community needs to come together and figure out how to fix this'

    - That's a bull**** copout.

    Some people started a riot . . . race notwithstanding.

    these people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Afternoon CRUE CAB, I just checked out the crime stats for Florida and this year Florida is reporting the lowest crime rate in forty some years.....except for Jacksonville where felony crimes continue on the rise especially with the youth. Why is that?

    If you think the African american community is simply bound together by race, as opposed to shared historical and cultural connections, and that these problems don't exist within that larger community, I don't know what to tell you. But a good place to start I guess would be looking up statistics concerning crime, std rates, single parent households, etc.

    We don't have a white community.
    Right, and we don't have a black community, we have an african american community ... Which is why we see trends within it that don't concern other "black" communities like the various african immigrant groups, that actually do quite well for themselves.

    But I guess asking you to actually think about the issue as opposed to indulging some moronic knee-jerk reaction would be too much

    When white guys storm schools and murder children no one ever thinks to open their mouth and say 'well the white community needs to come together and figure out how to fix this
    african american community=/= black. There are very real social and cultural issues that are you unique to the former due to a shared historical and cultural legacy. "White people" don't have a shared or historical cultural legacy. White people represent numerous groups with divergent "historical and cultural backgrounds" and did not suffer things like jim crow, slavery, and various other forms of systemic oppression that continue to have an impact even today ...

    - That's a bull**** copout.
    No, it's a straw man developed from your inability to understand the issue

    Some people started a riot . . . race notwithstanding.
    African american is more an ethnicity and has unique issues facing it that don't crop up in other groups with similar racial backgrounds. So your assumption my argument concerned race is simply more evidence of the fact that all you presented here was a knee-jerk reaction dependent on pure ignorance of the issue.

    I'm trying to figure out what the plan was once they all got into the theater. Did they expect the theater to just run a movie for them while they waited for the cops?
