      youre a moron. nobody said white people don’t commit crime. I do think youre missing the point though. these drive bys? that’s black people. the stabbing at northside liquor, black people did that. all the shootings around town? black people. the poison cocaine that killed someone in the last year? you can bet that came from a black man. the majority of our violent crime is being perpetrated by black men. why would you want to defend trash? take your sympathy and keep it to yourself or express it to other people who wont admit that African American males are responsible for the majority of this towns violent crime and drug crime. the rest of us will go ahead and be grown ups. we cant solve this towns problems if everyone is afraid of being called a racist for speaking the truth and that’s that black people in this town are mostly all criminals. the simple truth is before we had all the Detroit and Chicago “people” we didn’t have nearly the amount of trouble we have and it was more often than not much less violent than it is now. if you think youre clever with your little comment up there, youre not. at all…. just another low rent pos defending the dregs of society, its not to say we don’t have decent black men in this town. just that the majority are very stereotypical and they do dumb stuff like rob kids at gunpoint for a pack of smokes(yes that happened here in town) or shooting each other at caseys over ugly old meth whores(also happened here in town one “butters” got what he deserved for being a criminal) if you really think the black people in this town aren’t the trashy type I have to wonder if maybe you aren’t one of the skanks out here with a cpl half black kids that got a few uncles and no daddies. the depth of you idiocy is outstanding. people like you are part of the problem, you need to realise that sometimes the truth is uncomfortable but without it being said we will never progress. the progress we need is to get rid of section 8 families and their associates. maybe youre to young to remember maybe youre just dumb but when we had less African American males we had less violent crime, less std rates and less od’s admitted to the hospital, we had less crime overall. I grew up here when we only had like 7 black people and they didn’t act like animals bent on destroying everything around them. it used to be safe around here….

          Nothing to do with how they vote but there’s is obviously racism and ignorance here in iowa and to think there isn’t is ridiculous.

          There is bad people in every race I just get tired of hearing how black people are doing this and that but someone white oh shucks he is a good old boy cut him slack even tho he molested a kid or beat the crap out of a spouse or meth as you can’t blame Hispanics and black people for all the drug problems.

          Every time a Hispanic name is brought they are illegal throw their body’s in a Mexican land fill etc.

          The hate filled posts on here is so over the top at times it’s down right pathetic but of course easy to do when one is anonymous.

        You can thank Obama and the Libs and Dems for fundamentally changing north Iowa and especially Mason City.

          By your logic I can then blame Trump for all racist issues and division going on and the likes of alt right movement thugs going on.

          ya, when they busted the last big shipment of heroin coming into town…. who was trafficking that heroin, oh and who had a stolen illegal firearm? you missed the point where I said not all minorities are responsible for crime. the fact is that the majprity of people charged with drug trafficking happen to be minorities so yea I can lay a good share of blame on black and brown. if youre all so concerned about racism maybe get out there and make sure your black boyfriends stop commiting crime? mason city is a town of 27,000 its pretty easy to get a decent idea of which groups are up to what around here, see the same faces everywhere you go. all one has to do is go to a few bars and then a few parties with you locals and you get quite a picture, id be confident in saying at least 50 percent of adult black males in this town are involved in crime. id say 50 percent of this town has some working knowledge of whos a criminal and whos criminally active and id say 25 percent of this town is aqctively engaged in crime. mason city is a bad [place and I cant wait to leave it again, im not one of you 27.000 and im really quite happy with myself about that. mason city is a place I will always remember as that horrible little meth town I had to spend time in for work. I wont come back and ill tell others what a meth infested wannabe thug infested smelly hell hole town it is.
