    There is no specific race of a thug. White, black, yellow or red, all thugs deserve either a jail cell or death.

    Really??? You folks are jumping on the guy who asked where the racist comments are y??? Because the truth is you know if this were a black man you would be calling for a lynching!! Its not him that keeps racism alive, its coward racist who make slanted statements like "wow a white man never see that often" white people commit just as much crime as African Americans...need I point out that when we were still considered property white folks were filling up jail cells! KINGS OF CRIME!! lol

        make a point?? who is talking about canadians or americans...the discussion is whether or not African Americans are americans or african!!! And in my opinion if we are americans then somebody should notify this country because on everything that requires me to identify my nationality it says "AFRICAN-American" or black, not american.. so apparently the two are synonymous!

      Ummm . . no. The Bureau of Justice statistics quite clearly and overwhelmingly disagree about "whites committing just as many crimes as African Americans". By the way, NO ONE is still alive that that was a slave. Has not been for decades. Let it go. You're ancestors were given restution by this Nation and to this day there are a huge number of people who would gladly contribute cash for a one way plane ticket back to Africa for those unable to get over an "injustice" they have never known. One last thing . . do you know who captured the slaves and sold them in Africa? It was NOT Caucasians.

        It was Europeans and what do you think the definition of Caucasian is, do you have an education at all???...The only true Americans are indians and I am sure you dont want to have that conversation?? Let me answer both dumb responses at once, Yes I have been to Africa and when I go this year it will make my 4th trip, My ancestors are from Africa,nit wit,and regardless of whether anyone that was a slave is alive or not the residual effects of it live on! YOU GET OVER IT!!! and RESTITUTION was given to who???? Get a grip this nation gave nothing to African Slaves but Jim Crowe, you are talking to a historian I know my history do either of you know yours????

          Are Canadians Americans? They are from America (North America). There are a lot os countries in Africa and yet we call anyone from the continent of Africa Africans.

    Um, I have found a few race comments on here, yours being one of them. Do you even read the articles? I wonder what you're referring to. Is it because someone may post "thug"? Do you assume that by them posting that, they are making a racist comment against black people? Ridiculous if you ask me because I've seen thug on white people committing crimes.

      Please, you know that when the term "thug" is used on this website it replaces the "N" word. How stupid are you?

    What about the poor employees. That location has had many robberies. It is very sad to see all the dialog about the black or white thug, when you know those employees won't sleep well for weeks. Glad no one was physically hurt.

    It is so sad the post I've read on this situation, it is not about a black or white issue people you need to grow up!! This has nothing to do with President Obama he's not here in Tallahassee it is all about this person you all sat on your do nothing and now he's your (GOVENOR!) Well all I can say is things like this will be happening more now since there are so many job cuts in Florida no one wants to hire the unemployed and yet as your GOVENOR’S MOTTO IS "LET'S GET TO WORK!" Well here you go he's getting to work by doing what he has done and taken what he can because of the limited jobs in FLORIDA!!! President Obama is trying to do his best with what he has to work with everyone who sat home and said “I’m not gonna vote!” Guess what you voted and now this is what we have to look forward too. Your vote could have been the vote to put someone in office to work with President Obama not work against him now it is what it is and more of this will come in the coming days if things don’t change!!
