D.C. police are looking for two men who robbed Nelly's Sports Bar in Northwest Washington on April 19.

African American males comprise about 25% of the DC population, but seem to be involved with 95%+ of the violent crimes.

Gay bar but it's "straight friendly."

Black men under 40 are committing the crimes & going back & forth to prison. Career criminals. For most of these thugs/punks it's not the first crime they have done. Their rap sheet is long.

The older black men get the less they're involved in crime. I guess that goes for whites, hispanics & Asians too. Young men are the problem!

Why do you want to be a thug?

Why don't you graduate from high school instead? You can do it. Not like you're trying to get a degree from Oxford. Then learn a trade (plumbing/electrician, etc) or join the military. There HAS to be something LEGAL you can do to make a living. Come on now.

Quit making excuses. Stop blaming everything bad that happens to you on racism/the white conspiracy/police, etc.

Take responsibility for your life. Have some self-respect.

Dont be surprised if youths act this way, especially when you feed them gangsta rap and violence laden video games like Grand Theft etc where they can practice criminal acts etc.

No, no, no! We must not cooperate with the police. BLAME the police, yes. SCREAM at them, fine. But NEVER do anything to help them. Leave it to the elves & the magic fairies to solve the violent crimes in the District.

The police are our enemey.

Support your local thug. Hug a thug!

Kenk3 - and 100% of the multimillion dollar crimes that affect the lives of nearly every citizen and threaten to destabilize the global economic system are committed by white males.
