    And you know it. I'm not talking about our overall culture, and you know that, too. This is about a unique culture that feels that actions like this are acceptable, and are in fact increasing in reported frequency, and that, you know as well.

If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice.

    Obviously the kids doing it are okay with it (as long as its not their head getting kicked). But if you are referring to the black community/culture in general, I guarantee the vast majority of them are vehemently opposed to this.

    Notice how you talk about the "acceptable culture of this country"

    Now, if you want to admit that your own words were poorly chosen and rephrase them to be more clear, be my guest. Just please don't think that you've been clear so any misunderstanding is the fault of others.

    That's absurd. Who exactly is "allowing" this to happen and how are you not "allowing" it to happen? And, aside from posting on an internet website, exactly how are you "engaging the culture head-on" to change it?

    Why do you besmirch Animals in such a way?

    Name for me an animal which exhibits the behaviors of Racism and Sadism?

    Ants? No. Intra-species warfare, yes, but not Racism and certainly not Sadism.

    Rats? No... Greed and Cannibalism, certainly, but not Racism and Sadism.

    Bears? No

    Baboons? No... but maybe close

    Lions? No, not at all.

    Horses? Silly

    Sharks? No

    Rabbits? Laughable

    Hyenas? Maybe, getting closer, from what I've seen in films on their behavior,...


    But the sad fact is, you won't find intelligent, tool using, organized, social Animals of ANY species other than humans exhibiting the Behavior of Massed, Socially Organized, Deliberate expenditure of Time and Energy on Racism and Sadism, other than Humans.

    Additionally, you will not find it in MOST human Cultures.

    The Liberals on this forum will scream Oppression, for even suggesting it, but we all can name those cultures off-hand with no study or reference required.

    Don't Admit it on the Forum, Admit it to yourself.

    Then ask WHY?

    What is the difference?

    What makes one culture embrace Racism and Sadism, and another reject it?

    American WHITE Culture in the Deep South, with the KKK, at one time exhibited Racism and Sadism, and later found the strength of character to reject and remove it. Its not common to quite the behavior for any culture which embraces it.

    Why is it hard to stop? Why did White America do so?

    The process of rejecting that cultural aspect doesn't come easy, and for some cultures, it has not happened for centuries.

    What will it take to get the American Subculture currently gleefully embracing Racism and Sadism, to stop?

    As a student in Sociology, I think I know what it will take... can you guess what I'll say?

    Some of you, imo, are over analysing this.

    I assume this is little more then a bunch of poor/angry young people lashing out in an extreme way.

    I remember when I was 15, a friend of mine and I came out of a football game late at night and about 16-20 'white' boys/guys (I would guess between 13-17) that I had never seen before (and they were not wearing colors that I could see so I doubt they were an organized gang) just beat the **** out of us with fists/kicks/baseball bats (gave me a concussion). They didn't even take our wallets before we got away...they just were obviously furious at life and wanted to hurt someone else (wish they would have picked a different night to take revenge on the world...oh well).

    Angry youths have been doing things like this for as hundreds and hundreds of years I bet. It's just that only recently have most people got video cameras in their phones to film it.

    It's not cultural or race-related, imo, NEARLY as much as it's about poverty and/or crappy parents.

    You don't see too many bands of financially stable, well loved/raised teenagers running around beating people up.

    Quick question. What are you doing about it?

    The leaders of this country that for obviously politically correct reasons do nothing, or if they do at least say something (even though just talking isn't enough), blame others for the actions of young miscreants like these.
    What actions should the leaders of this country take in response to the trashing of a grocery store in Memphis? What should be on, say.. Mitch McConnell's to-do list in light of recent events?

    Is that enough people for you? Or would like more examples, including some names?
    It'd be a nice start.

    I disagree.

    If you are referring to the unhomogenious group of ALL Black Americans, you are correct, "the vast majority of them are vehemently opposed to this."

    If you try to apply the same standard to the local subgroup of Urban, disgruntled, entitlement mentality, Government Welfare Dependent Black Americans, the approval of this kind of behavior is Blatantly evident in the laughter and comments of the person making the cell phone video!

    Among the Urban-Affirmative-Action-Welfare-Redistribution-Blacks, the uncontested voting Vassals of the Democratic Party, this type of behavior and attitude is common place in 2014.

    I think it would be assault with a deadly weapon.

    There does seem to be some differences in law enforcements reactions toward different colored people.
