    Do they think we’re dumb, both incidents are 99% related. There was heavy police, undercover, and trooper presence in town way before the incident occurred. Police must of had a tip of retaliation. But surprisingly as many police officers etc in the area and we have yet to see any arrests??? Didn’t they stop 2 vehicles involved? No arrests… and the black suv goes free, untouched again???

        Hey our state and city government had to agree to take these section 8 vouchers and the landlords too, hardy isn’t the only landlord in town responsible for destroying our community. Local landlords are the last line of defense, ignore the equal housing opportunity laws and stop renting to black people. Pretty simple. Local employers are the next line of defense, stop hiring and housing the people who are responsible for this crime. What’s so hard about that? Stop raising daughters who think it’s ok to be with black males. It isn’t! It shows a lack of self respect and a lack of class. If we just refuse them services and goods they will have to migrate. It would be nice if we could depend on our city council, they could literally just make local ordinances against section 8 or hud housing. They’re interested in that because they lack foresight. Nobody is going to go to the event enter to see cover bands they never heard of when it is in the middle of African American perpetrated stolen gun crime.

          Excuse me??!! Tell your daughters it’s not ok to be with black men??!!! “It’s not okay, it shows lack of respect and lack of class.” Who the hell do you think you are? Racism at it’s finest. Bigot! I agree that these low life thugs running around Mason City, including a few that were raised here are worthless sob’s women should steer away from. They degrade and use women. BUT BY ALL MEANS there are a number of good, honest, hardworking black men with integrity and morals that are great husbands and fathers, some with interracial relationships. There are just as many of more low life white people here in Mason City, those would be the ones stealing people’s shit at night and seeking out these gang bangers for drugs. 80% buying drugs from these criminals are white junkie trash. Yes get rid of the section 8 imports but that isn’t going to solve the White junkies robbing people blind here obtaining drugs from local drug dealers. Clear out the white Coke and Meth junkies is where you start … if there’s no demand the supply goes else where to make there money.

            No. Black males are a plague. Anyone who cant speak without ebonics has those predator braids and listens to rap should be beaten in the street and shipped back to detroit. Women who lower themselves enough to be with black men are disgusting trash. Personally I have sent several woman packing from my social group or personal situation because they thought it was ok to hang out with, party with and sleep with black males. It isnt. Its skanky and low class. Interracial relationships like that are a detriment to society look at the stats regarding white woman black male and the negative impact that it has on them their prison bound offspring and the community ar large. When you reverse it and it’s a black woman with a white male you get the opposite effect. It elevates the black woman and her children will probably grow up speaking proper english and working a job. 13% responsible for 50% of crime. Average black male doesnt break 45 years old without being incarcerated the majority of that time or ending up dead. The absolutely majority of gun crime is committed by black men. The same gun crime the democrats attempt to use as an excuse to disarm law abiding citizens. Black males are garbage, if there’s one or two good ones per hundred bad ones who cares? They should be culled from our society at large. They are loud they are aggressive they are responsible for violent crime they smell bad and you can’t understand a fvcking word they say half the time because they hide their mental retardation behind ebonics. Worthless wastes of space. Society would improve greatly without their presence and that’s just a fact. Also….. you know it’s the blacks that sell the coke and the meth these days right? So again, without black males the world would be happier. It’s just the truth. You’re probably just some dirty mud shark or have a relative that is so you have to stand up for your misconceptions that there are “good black men” even if there are who cares? Get rid of them all and we can start building a nice peaceful society where nobody speaks like a halfwit nobody dances like a halfwit nobody raps like a halfwit and nobody is on section 8. Black males are pointless, we should have either told the freed slaves back in the day go home or be hung til death. Our country would be in great shape without ghettos and the worthless trash they produce.

            Oh I read your fear of the black race. It’s white junkies like you that talk hate while trying to cover up your fear. White junkie mad he has to buy his drugs from the black man? Or perhaps you’re the white drug dealer in town worried the black drug dealer taking over? The black trash and your white trash ass can leave. You’re just as much a waste of space also.

    So he was shot, did they find a weapon in the vehicle? Many charges for him? poke a stick in his bullet hole and make the little shit talk. This all needs to stop. Are we supposed to start asking the local trash when it’s safe to walk around my the community from now on? “Hello Mr drug addicted minority transplant person, are you and your home boys going to be recklessly endangering the lives of EVERYONE today?”. All well. I bet once these fake tough guy thug wannabes get a load of the new event center and eye sore skyline enhancing apartments south of the mall they will understand and change their ways. How long before there’s a hatchet murder at the new axe bar? Any bets?

        There is NO WAY we should have treated blacks the way the whites did back then. NOBODY SHOULD EVER THINK OWNING A PERSON AND ENSLAVING THEM, ABUSING THEM AND/OR KILLING THEM WAS OK OR JUSTIFIED, just because they were born black. It should be apart of history that the WHITE RACE SHOULD BE TOTALLY EMBARRASSED ABOUT AND SICKING.

          I did the 23 and me. Nobody I’ve ever been related to had slaves or trafficked them, why should I feel responsible for any if that shit? You know Africans sold africans in the first place? Even if my family did hundreds of years ago have slaves or traffick them….. why should I give a shit? Why would I care? I didnt do it. You’re a moron. Just because you’re white does not mean you owe black people a damn thing nor should you feel guilty for anything. That’s just the fanatic far left brainwashing you’re receiving in public school these days. Black folks can go ahead and blame the africans in africa that decided to start selling eachother in the first place, they need to be mad at other dumb africans. Seriously your attitude that I should have to feel guilt express remorse and pay them money for something I never did is sickening and embarrassing. You for sure need to get your helmet strapped on again before someone pokes your after spot in an attempt to spare the rest of us your idiotic bullshit.

            You idiot… read… I said whites should have never treated blacks that way back then. Slavery, beatings and hangings. Please, it’s a disgrace to the white race we ever behaved that way. I said it was wrong!! Yes whites should be embarrassed by our ancestors behavior. It’s called morals, integrity and empathy, which I see you lack as a human being. I never said we owe this generation anything. Nor do or did any Democrat or Republican make me feel like I owe them or to feel bad about slavery or the white mans behavior back then. I can think for myself without political influence or your ignorance, to know that slavery, abuse, beatings and hanging were dreadfully wrong. But that takes morals, integrity and empathy to realize that, which many of you lack these days. I said it was wrong period. Don’t twist my post into your crazy empathetic rant and political shit.

          So..in your Obama worshiping mind, if an honest, hard-working white person doesn’t feel like paying slavery reparations, that means they are condoning slavery?? Yowsuh!..who ties your shoes for you??

            I can’t stand Obama. This is my point of view, not the guy you were referring to.
            I believe that we should pay reparations, just like we did to Japanese Americans after World War II.
            In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 which apologized for the internment on behalf of the U.S. government and authorized a payment of $20,000 (equivalent to $43,000 in 2019) to each camp survivor.
            The key word being SURVIVOR. The reparations should be to anybody that WAS a slave before the Emancipation Proclamation signed on January 1, 1863. So they, at a minimum would be 156 years old, Hell I would even pro rate it up.

            So, all humor aside, I think it’s frightening that the Democrats are dead serious about reparations. More unearned entitlements to people that have proven themselves to be addicted to entitlements??? It’s beyond stupid.

            I don’t think anyone mentioned Obama, but you. You ok bud? Or stuck in the past? Let it go. I also don’t read where any posters your talking about think any thing or any white person should pay anything to anyone? Or that means a person condones slavery? You sure you’re ok bud? Delusional?

      I agree with everything you said except “eye sore skyline enhancing apartments”.

      I can’t tell if your saying these apartments will enhance, or are going to be an eye sore. Either way I’m unfamiliar with this “skyline” in town, especially one south of the mall which honestly as a transplant is one of the more depressing and shitty area’s in town.

      Actually I just looked it up and they’re being built in the malls overflow parking lot, so their awesome “skyline views” will be of family video, a gas station and that shitty abandoned motel. Hopefully the cost of bulldozing that down is part of the 10mil riverfront development, because that is one of the biggest eyesores in town.

        Well. You can see down and over the South part of our lol beautiful community. It’s the only view mason has. They aren’t demoing that old drug den motel, they are redoing it because mason city so desperately needs another motel/hotel lol. This city is a foothold for sure. It’s section 8. It’s not a popular opinion but it is a fact, if black males disappeared right now our national gun violence rates would plummet by supper time tonight, by breakfast it would barely exist. 13% commit 50% of the crime. We need to stop blaming firearms and start blaming individuals, just so happens the vast majority of those individuals are African American males. No racism just logic dictates that the worst thing for a community or a relationship or a child is a black males presence. To those of you who are not ghetto trash, carry and stay alert. Can’t even walk your dog in this town anymore without fearing you’re gonna take a stray bullet from a high point.

          If the low life white junkies weren’t seeking drugs from these thugs , they’d move on to where demand for their supply is. The White junkies robbing people blind to get their fix from these thugs. Clear them all out drug dealers and the junkies, BOTH or it won’t work or get better by eliminating one or the other. Hard to do when out city officials, judicial parties and Some law enforcement seem part of the corruption.

            They for sure are. You remember when those two African trash humans stabbed the other african trash human at the liquor store a year or two ago and they didnt even press charges against those two and the other one was in ICU for weeks, justice would have seen the hostile parties in prison for life and the “victim” dead on the operating table. Instead our corrupt local whoever’s let the violent homicidal african trash humans go free with no charges. They either release violent criminals into our community through section 8, never charge the when they commit violent acts and then tell us about how the community isnt at risk when these homicidal pieces if shit are shooting up e state street or Penn or east park ect.
