    here’s an article i found

    “But when you add race to the equation, that pessimism can quickly become destructive. If black people are continually told that self-defense laws are creating a class of white vigilantes, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, they’ll begin to view white people with more suspicion. If white people are regularly told that black America is growing more violent, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, they’ll begin to view black people with more suspicion.”

    it becomes a full circle. white people are scared of blacks. blacks are scared of whites. blacks see whites as powerful figures and they’re scared of that. what do you do when you’re scared? you retaliate. whites are scared of blacks. what do whites do? whites retaliate just as much just we do it by taking advantage of said power.

    or at least thats what people do when they are blinded by the media who are feeding biased information.

    when looking at the real crime statistics, you have to look at the numbers as far as in retrospect to the total population and also the type of crime. interracial crimes aren’t as high as intraracial crimes. whites are actually most likely to become victims of crimes committed by a white person. same with blacks. however, CNN, and other news channels takes a story and puts their own spin on it and exaggerates the data.

    PS: i’m not black. as I had mentioned. i’m multi-racial. i did say that we all come from the same place though (adam a

    I really liked how you worded that cause I, myself, was getting tired the racist comments. I managed to find an interesting article:

    “That pessimism, likely driven by the media’s tendency to focus on sensational crimes and to interpret even positive data in ways the most alarming way possible, is one reason why we continue to get tough-on-crime policies from politicians, soaring incarceration rates, and it’s why it’s so difficult to get legislators to revise or repeal laws that that may have gone too far.

    But when you add race to the equation, that pessimism can quickly become destructive. If black people are continually told that self-defense laws are creating a class of white vigilantes, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, they’ll begin to view white people with more suspicion. If white people are regularly told that black America is growing more violent, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, they’ll begin to view black people with more suspicion.”

    Then it ends up becoming a full circle to where tension is created.

    with that being said, its such a tragic incident, and i hope they find the people who had done this and they get their just punishment.

    ok so I really feel the need to say this:

    STOP IT WITH THE RACIST COMMENTS. there i said it. I’m half-white. I’ve experienced pain from both white and black people. Heck, I’ve even experienced hate from asians and hispanics. With that being said – we’re all human.

    I think its sad to listen to grown adults call someone of another race animals and someone even said rats. I bet if a couple of white kids were the ones who killed this guy, people would simply say “o they had a mental disorder” or it wouldn’t even be given the time of day because both parties are white. and what if both parties were black? a black person killing a black person? happens almost every day, but yet no one is talking about it. because people get the most ticked off when its people of two different races.

    and by the way, for those of you who say “take them back to their native land” and if you’re white, give this land back to the Native Americans, because your people aren’t from here either – that is being said from someone who has Korean, Native American, German, Irish, Polish, Prussian, Russian, French, and British ancestry.

    No one is 100% white and no one is 100% black if you live in the United States unless you’re specifically from that particular country and can trace it back. and even then, if you’re a Christian, we all come literally from the same place.
