Yep, Marah...I have to agree with you. But the OP's diatribe on "how many blacks kill whites" was just annoying and irrelevant. Plus, it was said to incite a certain response, and it did. "Sit down and BE QUIET" (edited for mods
) works for me. So yeah, with all that, they still need to go somewhere and sit down. Cuz you best believe the scales of justice do not weigh in our favor.
I remember an instance when an elderly man shot and killed a 15 year old boy (both black), because the boy kept playing on his lawn, after repeated requests to stop. EVERYBODY speculated "why" it happened. But I know kids OFTEN like to taunt elderly people (and they often develop an attitude of contempt from their parents, and older siblings), and once an elderly neighbor gets the "crazy ole' man/woman" label, they're often the object of intense ridicule/disrespect.
I've seen some young people mouth off at elderly people, and some of them ain't havin' it. Some grow weary with life, and they have other issues going on - declining health, family desertion, etc. and they lash out, and sometimes somebody ends up dead. That's unfortunate, but that's life...and death. So, there are lessons to be learned, all around. Depending on where this elderly man lives (the racial makeup of the neighborhood), he may have been doing some very simple math. Some whites live in predominately black neighborhoods (because they're too poor or too old to escape), so if there are break-ins in the area, it's quite logical to assume somebody black is guilty...and that's usually the case. That's just the truth. Now, that doesn't mean you just go randomly shootin' folks.
Now, I'm not saying this is the case
, in this case...because I wasn't there, and I don't know the history (if there is history). I'll wait to hear more, before I jump to a "He killed him cuz he was black!" conclusion.
