    Absolutely. Back in the 60's, the white folks down around Houston would go "N***** Knockin'"

    To this day, you will rarely see an African American walking down the street, in Texas, without turning around to see what is coming up from behind him.

    I have noticed this in other states as well.

    Problem:




    Solution:




    just my .02 If some of these people who are "just turning their lives around"/"good kids"/"hanging with the wrong people" start getting etch-e-sketched like clockwork...the trend might die down a bit.

    Sorry, call me heartless, but if you have no problem walking up to someone and blasting them in the face for giggles, well, I think it's only appropriate that said individual gets wiped out of the gene pool proper before he reproduces. I'm not saying start executing people. Rather, if the knockout isn't successful, make sure it doesn't happen again

    Actually, it's the other way around. When a white man assaults a black man, it's a huge news story.

    When a black man assaults a white man, it's Tuesday.

    So would media coverage of that despicable act be "over hyped"?

    These things don't get fixed by ignoring them.

    {Groan}. That's why liberals are such horrible problem solvers. Step one in any problem solving scheme is to identify the problem.
