    abbynork, I read what he said and I assume it was an attempt at sarcasm. However, I understood the underlying point, hence my question.

    Here we go stereotyping and race profiling et again! Everybody knows it was a white guy that did the shooting. This post is just another crack at sarcasm and iß in now way intended to stir up any feelings of hate or discontent.

    retiredcfcc, are you saying that all black males "look like the typical kind to shoot someone"?

    Why is everyone almost always blaming black males for violent crimes?

    Where are Jackson, Sharpton, Jealous and Goldsboro's own Rev. Barber? We need "them" to weight-in on this case, these boys may well be innocent. Don't look like the typical kind to shoot someone. Guy in the car should have been some where else at the time, he wouldn't had been shot.
