    This is still more carry over residual effects from America’s practice of slavery. This karma will last a VERY LONG TIME, and is reason I think ultimately a NEW NATION should be born that doesn’t have the scar of slavery on it. Horrible decision that ultimately prevents America from being a truly righteous Nation. The slaughter of the Buffalo and American Indian are 2 other unforgivable scars America has on her record.

      @Philly-that is BULL S. This has nothing to do with slavery. None of these thugs or their parents or their grandparents were slave. This has to do with a gang culture and probably the drug trade . What you are claiming is nothing but an excuse for criminal behavior.

        America has sins to bear. You’d like to sweep everything under the rug. Ostrich all you like but the reason Black American Males engage in such behavior is because of a long history of slavery, racism, and Jim Crow laws. They are still working from unconscious and conscious despise by white people. You have to fess up to the issue before it gets better. It’s not easy, but at least I recognize America’s sins, whereas you do not. I don’t bear the collective sins like other blue bloods do.

          Philosophus…As the free spirit, misguided, self proclaimed world genius, non-conforming, embarrassment that you are….I say WOW, just WOW. Even for you, your slavery rationale/ logic is so far out of bounds its hard to comprehend. Its very apparent all you are trying to do is say something so bizarre that you hope to get people to comment back to you. I think for now, I’m done with you. You scare me and I will pray for you. Lord knows, you surely need it.

        LVS…You are absolutely correct. These guys are nothing but gang-banger, thugs pure and simple. As for the misguided person who thinks its because of slavery….well, what else would you expect from a guy like that? His own mother is a slave to him as is the rest of his family, but in his mind, that’s OK. Go figure…..

      I agree with you 100%

      A new nation free of slaves and descendants…

      No Irish

      No Jews

      No Chinese

      No Africans

      No Anybody from anywhere because every race has been enslaved at one time or another in the history of the world.

      You are a genius Peter.

      Now please leave and don’t come back.

        NO, that sounds like your Aryan Nation Fantasy. I’m saying because America the government institutionalized slavery, she defaulted. That sin was a fatal error karmically. The results are apparent today with high numbers of African American Males disenfranchised and imprisoned. When a new nation arises, ALL people can join equally, and it will not have the stain of those past errors upon it. You apparently believe in continued repression and denial, whereas I do not.

          Nationalism and Patriotism are interesting phenomena to me…almost Mafioso like in their binding of humans through blood and imprisonment. Like the Mafia, many Blood Patriots and Nationalists believe you are bound to the country for life and only can exit in a coffin. And like the Mafia many are willing to kill to keep people from leaving. Should a country be this controlling? I believe humans should be able to select their country based on what fits their ideals…not their location.

            I will gladly buy you a one-way ticket to any other country in the world, so long as you renounce your US citizenship… I’d even drive you to the airport.

            I don’t fly, not unless I’m the pilot and know the mechanic real well, and can read through the maintenance schedule of the aircraft. There’s no need to “renounce” one’s citizenship. You’re always looking for a way to put a bullet in someone’s head. The New Nation will spring up from within America and will be born of her own freewill. Dual Citizenship will result for a period of time until America eventually absorbs into the new creation. Laws will be just and evenly enforced.

            @williamjefferson-I would even chip in if I though he would really leave but on top of being a liar Philly has proven himself to be a coward as well.

            I guess I was a coward when I boarded the plane to Amsterdam a few days after Bush won the second term election like I said I would. I’ve been to remote places backpacking you’d be crying for your easy chair and television were you ever to be found. In foreign countries alone. In deep parts of forests. Hitchhiking across America, and in other nations. If you ever did go somewhere it wasn’t too far from the tour bus I’m sure.

            …and I did it without a trillion dollar military backing me up. ( for any of you military enthusiasts who may count their military adventures against my SOLO ones ).

            How did the maintenance logs look on the plane? Did the pilot let you ride up front? Do you still talk to him (being that you know him really well)?

            I can put you on a boat too, just don’t come back – ever.
