Now there's a wonderful suggestion. Watch and follow a left wing comedian that has all the answers. Of course. How stooooopid of me.


In the meantime, the war continues in the US gangland where gangsters, black, latino, asian, white etc are shooting one another and including thousands of innocent victims.

And guess who is charged with trying to keep some sense of order within the chaos of those gangster/drug (that includes whitey's) infested areas all over this nation.


Not Gary, BABDA, Crankster, Kos, Brcowboy etal.

I seem to recall the chief has done and perhaps continues work with at-risk teenagers, taking them on trips to the mountains etc.

That's doubling down on personal commitment. I can respect this work and his opinions about this situation, too.

BTW Bobda, this is a "CHOPPER" which is the most sought after and weapon of choice within the black and latino gangland's nation wide:





But we should go ahead and disarm the cops throughout this nation.

I never really understood the "my opinions are more valid because I've done charity work" argument.

I've done plenty of charity work myself, but I'm still quite capable of being an ignorant as#@&%e.

You work/ed directly with At-Risk Youth and affiliated gang members (of all ethnicity and color) in their war zone communities, KOS?

If so, then I will STFU.

And you alone define the standard for what are acceptable good deeds?

No, I'm not gonna claim "street cred" like you do.

If so, then I will STFU.

You don't have the self discipline to do that.

Chief, that does not excuse you for your racist attitudes, in fact it only makes them more shocking. Seriously. WTF are your superiors/bosses thinking? Perhaps you are part of the problem?

While your contention that the massive number of street killings get too little attention is well placed as a general critique of "the problem", using that as reason to say that racism is dead or that this particular killing should be ignored as water under the bridge is ridiculous, and that is all you have been doing.

If this is an issue you care about, and supposedly you do and you are not just a racist "trolling" jackass, you would STFU and let the debate take place, participating in it instead of trying to kill it by villifying everyone who has used this as an opportunity to raise awareness about a real issue.

Maybe you're obtuse?

I've done plenty of charity work myself, but I'm still quite capable of being an ignorant as#@&%e.

Thanks for your work and yes you can be an ignorant as#@&%e if you want.

Same as the chief. And me.

No.


Your post has absolutely NOTHING to do with my last question that I presented you and the inner city violence it entails. Nothing.

Either you have direct experience working with the issue of gang/drug related violence in the inner cities. Or you don't. Simple. Has nothing to do with my opinion of what are or are not "good deeds".

Quite twisting my words/post.


Chief, that does not excuse you for your racist attitudes


Post em up. Let's see em.


If posting up the realities of gang/drug related violence (which I have worked first hand with off and on from 1999-2010) that exists in the inner cities of this nation is your claim that I am a "racist", than that in itself shows how you and many here are just plain ignorant of what being a "racist" is all about.

Um, lets start with your contention that racism in America is dead and that the current problems are all black peoples very own fault...

Seriously, how can you possibly help those kids? Do you tell them to go look in the mirror so they can look "the problem" in the eyes? You don't even think they ever face discrimination, unless it's their own fault. How could you possibly be doing anything good there? How much difference could you possibly be making with that attitude? How much better off would those kids be if they were being watched over by someone who actually got it? Seriously, that you do that work is SHOCKING!

Also, my bad for assuming that your reference to personal race/discrimination struggles that was stated in the context of the countries of origin/ethnicities of your parents was something besides you saying that you are not white, especially when you alluded to that in the post in question. Clearly, I read too much in there, and I am sorry.

Wow. That's some apology, Jammer. You really bent over backwards to apologize for assuming Chief's mother was black.

Why is that such a big deal to you?

Is this your own racist mentality showing itself?

What have you done Bob D Antonio other than spend most of your days climbing, putting up routes in the nice protected confines of the west and writing guide books.

What have you done to make a difference in a young black or latino man's life that has seen nothing more than a life of drugs and violence?

What Bob D Antonio? Other than whining about how whitey cops are asshules and the poverty in this nation is all the fault of racist whitey christian republicans?







Um, lets start with your contention that racism in America is dead and that the current problems are all black peoples very own fault...

I did and I have? Really?


Post up where I specifically stated either.

Not holding my breath as you have yet to be specific on any other of your bs accusations.



How do we help them you ask?


We show them how life is what you make of it. That the mentality that has been instilled in them that they are doomed to failure due to certain barriers they are told exist, only exist if they choose to allow them too.

The leaders of all three programs I worked with were all prior hardcore gang members and drug dealers. All did their extensive time in the justice system and correctional facilities. All three now have their MA's in different cultural studies within their ethnicity. All three have broken through the supposed chains that you people keep insisting exist.

All three of those programs take the young individuals out of their environments and show them what infinite opportunities exist here in our country only if they choose to take the step to make the change.

The exact same opportunities/directions that POUS Obama, Sec State's Powell and Rice and Att Gen Holder (along with many hundreds of other examples) all decided to direct themselves to and utilized to attain the success that they have.

There are seven other posts where Bob brings up the fact that he was unarmed.

Broken record?

We don't see no stinkin' broken records.

That is right Jefe. Those chains only remain if one is not shown how to and then chooses not to do all that they can to break em off and succeed.


But as long as there are people in this nation that keep telling them young kids in those communities that the chains are unbreakable, those kids see no hope and remain in the shetholes.


Yup. You folks just keep shouting the broken record that it is all someone elses fault. That it is the established societies fault that they are doomed to a life of poverty and gangs.

Yup. All the while you sit in your nice comfy suburbia homes. Wonderful.

Seems reasonable. Bears repeating.
