    You hear the coloreds complain about how the white man treats them, degrades them, and tries to take away their rights. But you never hear them raise an issue with colored on colored crime, the majority of shooting are colored on colored, and most of the destabilized, run down, and crime ridden areas are colored populated. That colored athlete who used grass and was penalized, first thing the coloreds did was say she was singled out and discriminated against. Fact is, she broke the rule and was caught. Coloreds don’t think the rules apply to them.

    If I had to guess if say black on black violence just like the VAST MAJORITY of gun crime. If we got rid of black males right now the countries would be almost crime free by lunch time. Black males are garbage and make the country less safe just existing.

        When I was growing up in Mason City in the 50’s and 60’s I knew all the black families in the neighborhood. They were all hard working good people. Now, I can’t say that as most of the good families have left town, replaced by thugs from the big cities. Thanks obama, for integrating them into our neighborhoods.
