    So he doesn't want to talk. So be it. He's the one who has to go back on the streets with the same person who shot him. He may not be so lucky the second time around. The reason he won't talk is because he would have to admit what he was doing when this happen.

    Drug dealing and gang warfare started long before African Americans. Or have you forgotten Al Capone, the Mafia, Bonnie and Clyde, the old "Five Points" of New York? It seems like you have short term memories. Since you want to speak on culture.

      So you think it's ok to do it just because someone else done it before?

        GV, I'm thinking what you said is a pretty self evident truth. And to top it off, they have to ignore a LOT of african history to come to their conclusion. This guy is about as sharp as a bowling ball - gotta be a FAMU administrator.

      Tribal warfare amongst blacks existed way before the gangs you mention. This is no different than that. They are perpetuating their ages old culture just with guns instead of spears.

    It's drug or thug or both related I'm sure.

    The "law." The "culture" is not above. The "culture" is the one that does not understand.
