History is important. No doubt a lot of evil people did a lot of evil things in the past. And maybe a majority of these evil people were white. I get it. But as a white male born into this world 30 years ago, what the hell do you expect me to do about it? I don't condone any evil acts that happened in the past, regardless of who committed them. And I don't condone any of it now. I am a good person. I treat everyone the same as I would treat my brother. But some of you want speak of the "white man" as the devil and group every one of us together like we are all the same. You want to believe that, because white men slaughtered native Americans or enslaved Africans, that I should be grouped in with them. I have no control over what happened in the past, and I damn sure would be f!ghting that sh!t if it was happening now. I can't stand that people hold something against me that I had nothing to do with. Would any of you be cool with being called a rapist because your great great great grandfather r*ped someone? I can't even read anything on here anymore because every single topic seems to turn into a racial thing. It's getting old.
i hear you. and i almost got caught up in that conversation again. this thread did start on the tragedy of these kids by some idiot and the sh*t did turned into a serious race issue. just let's me know that there's an underlying convo that needs to be had about the atrocities that were committed against black folks and SOMETHING be done about it without the continuance of modern day racism and slavery. nobody's addressing that. honestly, i'm happy this wasn't a black man that did this cuz selfishly, we get accused for being the worst race in history when actually it's white people, based on history. so yea, the moment something pops off where we can be like fu*k white people, we take it. that's just been taught to us for centuries. i hear you though. yea, younger white folks, who hang out and actually vibe with us negros are way more understanding that their forefathers. however things need to change and at the end of the day 20 kids are dead for no reason and white people are going to get the blame for it. hey if we have to keep on get racially profiled and stereo typed and discriminated against, all yall responsible for that sh*t. when the bullsh*t stops then we will stop ours. it's about time that we get some respect having to deal with more bullsh*t than most other races have had to deal with. this is why sh*t turns into a race war everytime.
not too long ago, White people would gather around to joyfully watch a ****** hanging from a tree, they'd even bring their kids out.
but it's 2012 now, and their offspring wouldn't dare condone such activities

(these kids don't seem disturbed at all by the fact that there's a dead man literally floating above their heads) maybe they were "mentally disturbed" like Lanza.
I only see the Black men in this picture being tortured, no other Black men around onlooking, guess they were all doing something else the night they were invited to watch a Black man being burned and or lynched.
you're not directly responsible for the actions of your forefathers, but as a White man, you benefit every day from the dirty deeds your forefathers committed, just by virtue of you being white.
truest sh*t i read on this site to sum up what most black men think.
to add to it......
just by us being black, we have to deal with all the stereotypes, discriminating ways and racist thinking of just some of white for the actions of all criminals regularly??? so yall get the fruits of our labor and injustices and we continually get the criticisms and bullsh*t just on the continued thinking and disregard for what happened??? i hear dude too however if he can agree that it was some bullsh*t, unlike his forefathers, maybe one or SOME of them should initiate conversations on how they can AT LEAST TRY TO ATTEMPT TO MAKE RIGHT what happened. we will never forget, THEY TEACH IT LIKE IT'S NOTHING IN SCHOOL. the kids LEARN IT LIKE IT'S NOTHING IS SCHOOL. when there can be a "what a minute....we REALLY fu*ked that up....and everything since then we need to just do this and that TO TRY AND MAKE THIS RIGHT" then things MIGHT get a little better in this country. until that, fu*k it. yall act like yall still don't give a fu*k so it's whatever.

Lol well first off I'm not a gunlover. As I said many times before I formed my own opinions about guns and grew up not liking them. And that story you posted is interesting but once again not home defense.
And dude when you say "is it safer if everyone has a gun or if everyone doesn't have one" obviously the latter is safer. But are you going to be the one to search every single American citizen and check and see if they have a firearm? Are all the guns just gonna disappear or something? There will never not be any guns in America. Making something illegal doesn't stop people.
nope. it's only helps to strengthen the prison industry in america which in turns continues the cycle of the bullsh*t that founded this country, enslavement.
