this isn't surprising. as a white person you don't go to certain areas at night. everyone knows this. if you must go there, have a gun. the unfortunate part is if you have to use it you're now a racist

So as a white person, you can't use a convenience store at night? How do you know she hasn't been there before? No wonder there exists white flight.

It's racist to say it, but when this kind of thing goes on, all the white people leave and surprise the property values drop, and there's now black neighborhoods.

You can use a concierge store at night, just make sure it's in the right hood

im not acting like that at all. but if it's a black chick walking into a store in a black neighborhood at night or a white chick then the white one is more likely to get attacked.

Teachers and school systems deserve a bit of blame too. We're teaching kids of all races that all white people are racists and the only reason blacks don't have as much money is because of the evil whitey.

Stop shifting the blame. The people who did this are to blame, no one else. They are straight animals fighting over territory. With the creation of tools we have evolved too quick for our primal survival tactics to be erased. No matter how advanced we get we will still have this.

Stop shifting the blame.

I'm not disagreeing that racism will likely always exist, but the media has quite apparently been instrumental lately in heightening racial tensions. If you want to see how people's prejudices are preyed upon by the media, look no further than the GamerGate controversy. The media has slandered white male gamers for the past year with article after article, and news segment after news segment, demonizing them, calling them woman haters, and encouraging hatred against them for no other reason than the color of their skin and genitals. All because a group of gamers dared to talk about the unethical journalism going on within the games industry.

The same has been done to the black community. They are being targeted with victim narratives, showcasing only instances of black people being shot, beaten, or killed by white people, and framing instances of black people fighting white people as righteous acts they should support. It's sick, and the media is absolutely a big part of the problem.

No. This behavior is created in childhood. These children are brutalized in the home and then we are so surprised when they become violent thugs.

Maybe you could blame these pieces of shit for creating racial tensions? Media does't make these people act like this, they just show the world. Granted, they have bias, but if these shitbags didn't DO this to begin with, there'd be nothing to be bias about.

The media played a part in this, yes, but you have to account for human behavior too. Much like how it's wrong for the news to pin the blame on video game for the bad behavior of children, you can't simply say the media is responsible for these racial tensions. If people want to start physical fights based on race, ultimately it falls on the shoulders of those who started the fights.

But these patterns start somewhere. Individuals are unpredictable, but groups are very predictable. When so many people are behaving in similar violent ways, we can't just blame individual decisions. There must be a reason that these groups have increasingly violent tendencies... Do you really think that with such a large sample size, we can sum it up as many unfortunate individual's decisions? Perhaps there are other issues at play that heavily influence these decisions?

I do agree, though, that we need to be careful in our search for the problem. Too many people will want to make this issue about themselves, to fit whatever worldview they already have and validate their own opinions on why this is happening.

I don't think any sane people here are arguing that individuals have a personal responsibility to not allow their prejudices and frustrations to be shaped into violent hatred and racism, but this does not excuse the media's actions at the same time. The people we trust to provide the public with news of current events are themselves responsible for reporting as accurately, and unbiasedly as possible, and they are damn well responsible for not intentionally race baiting us either.

Niggas love being another mans judge and jury

Niggas procrastinate until it's time to worry

Niggas love to be late

Niggas hate to hurry

Like I tell all these white liberals who've never lived in a black or mixed neighborhood, "If blacks are just like you and me, would you walk down the street at night with your wife and kids in a black neighborhood without fear of assault simply because you're white?" Would a white liberal move his family into a black neighborhood? Put up or shut up. The excuses for black racism created by white liberals is disgusting. You practically have to apologize for the black plight after you get beaten like Reginald Denny did for the black defendants after they smashed his skull for being white during the L.A. riots.

Its funny because white liberals do precisely that. It's called 'gentrification' and it fucks over the blacks worse thn the whites.

It's worth thinking about the causes of gentrification rather than thinking of it as an isolated initiative by a bunch of white people to take over a black neighborhood. Generally, it's caused by the city trying to "clean up" a bad neighborhood by providing better services (is improving the school system). They take a place that's very undesirable to live and make it a more desirable place to live. The way to prevent gentrification is never to make it a nice place to live -- you don't see many people gentrifying inner city Detroit.

Yes, yuppies move into trendy neighborhoods which prices black families out of their homes. But parent's point was they won't live in a long time in a mixed or black neighborhood.

You're talking about niggers who are apparently hanging out outside a grocery store. Maybe she didn't buy their CD or cologne. But if you're expecting a nigger to act like a human you're wrong.
