The largest percentage of gang members are black and mexican..not white..all of the videos on the Internet showing big groups fighting,shooting,killing,robbing and mom action is mostly done by blacks..look at worldstarhiphop....all of the shit talking on there about killing each other,threats comming from one gang member to another for making videos in their state..their state like they own it...all the shit talking from rapper to rapper...hey everyone wanna know why all the shooting in Chicago? Why all the gangs are fighting each other just go to Worldstarhiphop and watch all of the Black gang members shit talking and threatening each other...most of the gang violence is done by black and Mexican gangs and members..the biggest threat to the 2nd Ammendment is a bunch of shit talking gun toting idiots who don't even have a deed to their own homes and claim they have territory...no you have an illusion going on..and that illusion plays a part in hurting reality...it's funny the same thing you say about whites going nuts is the same thing people say about black and Mexican families who have people acting like idiots and gang banging...Woop your kids asses...lmao...in reality we all think for ourselves..no matter what race,religion..or beliefs...if you want to be violent nothing stops you only the length of time you get to be violent is..

Maybe you should call your daddy and ask....... oops, nevermind! Have your grandma get you a library card so you can get a few books on Black History!!! By the way, I didn't vote for Uncle Barry either time because I can see how bad black people screw up their own neighborhoods, and I knew it would be the same thing if one got control of the country. Guess I was right. BTW, I don't have a trailer and I wasn't around in the 50's, and I got my ass whipped plenty of times. I also had 2 parents who taught me right from wrong. You call me a racist for telling the truth, but that doesn't bother me. I'm sure you voted for your black president twice, and only because he was black, not because of what he stood for. If you agree with a gun grabbing, lying criminal, then you made a good choice!!!

This battle has no color. Wake up... Many of the overall morals this generation is corrupt. Look at TV Radio Videos Video games and Life around you in general... We can only be responsible for our own actions but unfortunately when drugs addicts and drug money come part of the scenario its always a Lose-Lose result to the situation. Again, The roullette of drugs has no name or color. Have a good day and stay away from drugs:)
