I try to be a realist too. That's why I try to judge people by who they are as individuals not the color of their skin, what's between their legs, or who they're physically attracted to. If I didn't do that I might have the mistaken perception that Citadel alumni are knob polishing rednecks.

All these videos you've posted don't demonstrate that African Americans are inherently violent. They're anecdotal and all they demonstrate is your bigotry. If you looked at violence between blacks and whites since this country was founded, I'm pretty sure the historical record would show that whites have been significantly more violent toward blacks than vice versa. You're just lucky people didn't have smartphones with video capability for most of that time.

The videos are illustrations of the statistics, which indicated that black violence occurs at a much higher rate than white (or Asian and Hispanic) violence.

That’s not what the videos show. You’re cherry picking videos to prove your point and ignoring evidence to the contrary. YouTube videos arent justification for anything. It’s merely a collection of anecdotes. Bring documented crime stats to the table to prove your point.

College of Charleston provost's husband killed in robbery try; 2 teens arrested

Two teenagers have been arrested in the shooting death of the husband of a South Carolina college provost, Charleston police confirmed Friday.

Tom DiLorenzo, 63, was fatally shot during an attempted armed robbery while walking through downtown Charleston with his wife, College of Charleston Provost Suzanne Austin, early Friday morning, Charleston's WCIV-TV reported.

DiLorenzo had recently retired as provost of the University of North Dakota, the Grand Forks Herald reported. The couple recently moved to South Carolina after Austin accepted her new job, the newspaper reported.

The couple were approached by the youths, ages 15 and 16, just after 6 a.m. They demanded money, with one of the suspects armed with a handgun, police said.

That teen has also been charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a deadly crime.

DiLorenzo was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. Austin was not wounded.

Whoops! We couldn't access this Tweet.
The suspects, who initially fled the scene, were being held in juvenile detention, WCIV reported. Their names will not be released because they’re minors.

“Our prayers are with the victim’s family during this terrible time,” Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds said in a statement. “We also want to thank the community for the support they’ve given our investigators in this case.”

The investigation is ongoing.

I note that the race of the teen hoodlums in the Charleston shooting is undisclosed. S.O.P. for news media these days.

It is great to see that Asheville has solved their black residents’ problems

But y’all may want to consider some immigration reforms... it isn’t just Ashevillians who covet 40 acres and a mule

Nothing has been solved, it's all just words at this point. I'm interested to see what plans come about though, and how they will be implemented. What I find more concerning for everyone here is a recent report that homes are flying off the market and being bought by people from New York, Miami, Seattle, etc. Many times they are being bought sight unseen and above the asking price. A great time to sell for some people, but it puts a strain on an already tight housing situation for many others. And people here make Asheville money, which is even less than NC money.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I thought Asheville, in an area of NC that had very little slavery (and about 50% Union sentiment during the Civil War) had decided to pay reparations.

They should just do it - because then all the activists will be satisfied, race relations will be great, and then we revert back to Pax Americana

Nope no payouts planned, at least not directly. We'll see what happens, but nothing can change without an acknowledgement of problems and a commitment to improving them. Of course it will take effort from everyone. If things change for the better, I'll probably be dead before they do. :nod:

But hey things can change! I've just posted three times in the shittiest thread on this site! :thumb:
