    The homies huh? Jamie, when you say homies, are you referring to black men? It doesn’t take much more than a couple sentences to really show how ignorant you are.

    1. elkriverscott says:

      White people don’t use the term homies. You’re not that ignorant are you?

      Haha, excuse me, DO NOT put words into my mouth. Just how insecure are you? There are homies of ALL race. Did I mention ANY race??? Hellllll no, homie.

    Its not about race but if you live in the area where crime is the most high you will find more of the homies as you call them doing the most of the crime. besides its not just blacks that are homies my friend the whites like to be called that as well. If only they could speak English and quit calling them selves the N word as you want to call it. they would get more respect. But as we know criminals have no respect for anyone not even themselves. and criminals are racists and have no respect for life, or for peoples property, witch I see everyday. so quit being politically correct I am sick of it all together. I see what i see and call it as I see it. Like MY best friend said to me when he got mugged, witch was funny. by the way he was black that TRIED to mug him anyway. My friend by the way is ex marine, witch the guy did not know, he called my friend the N word and white boy and all that non speaking English, and he tried hitting my friend , of course my friend had a knife but had no need to use it because when it came down to it this punk kid 19 ended up running off with no cash. theres more to it but i think you get the point.

    I think Chuck refers to himself as a “homie” and is offended. I am sorry Chuck. Go back to rolling your blunts, sitting on your @ss collecting welfare, and instilling fear amongst your community. Keep up the great work!

    The Northside is a Combat Zone. The police should drive armored cars and carry MP5’s. Set up a railhead up there and load these criminals on a train to No Man’s Land.

    For all of you, who are on this story promoting racism against blacks, and how bad the area is because it’s north minneapolis, http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2011/01/19/arrest-made-in-minneapolis-homicide/

    This guy is white…

    See the thing is, stupidity knows no color. All races and all areas can be susceptible to idiots who will do crime….

    Of course though, for the sake of blaming, let’s just blame it all on black people right?

  12. derek says:

    this is a life we are talking about people. i am black myself and i dont agree with the way we are killing other black men. i feel like i am endangerred. my people are hungry and some choose to go the wrong way. i once went about going the wrong way, the Niga way. i thought like a niga and became one..then i started to think like a black man, law abiding, go to work. Now I am an IT professional making decent money, i dont have any children and I do not commit crime…There is still other black men that see me do well and dont like it.They have not seen the way. And they blame the white man and they blame me, and they blame them selves….wake up people… i can show you better then tell you.
