You apparently missed the memo: race is only significant when minorities are victims of majorities.

13 people shot in Chicago tonight. As I said, culturally accepted. It will not be a major news story.

Just because something happens way more often then it should doesn't mean its "culturally accepted." Its a simple concept.

To make an analogy, I've done alot of things growing up that would not have been accepted by my parents.... but I still did them.

How is your individual history of misbehavior behavior and relationship with your parents an analogy to the historical group culture of a much larger diverse group.

Perhaps it is a crappy irrelevant anecdote but it isn't probative of the point you are trying to argue.

Well if you can read, I clearly stated:

Sorry this simple analogy went right over your head

So what are the parents of gang members doing to stop gang violance? Are the actively taking part in their education? Are they keeping them off the streets at night? Ignoring a problem is accepting it.

And how do you know they aren't? This board is fantastic at making broad, sweeping generalizations about things they know very little about. There are many people in these communities trying to actively combat gang violence, but of course the way you see it, these kids are getting handed an AK and weed from their parents before they can even walk, huh?

Just because a person might be a bad parent means that he/she approves of bad behavior by his/her children. I don't think there's a parent alive that wants their kid to grow up tobe a gang banger. Even the most derelict parents wishes that their kids would be successful in life.

I would bet most of them are...to the extent that they are capable....but it only takes a few who aren't to make the situation worse. I am making some generalizations myself here but knowing that most poor people are hard working and honest for the most part I can't imagine that they encourage their kids to get involved with gangs....I think most of them try to discourage this behavior (I know some don't but I just don't agree that it is a majority or even a large %). The problem is that many of them are single parents and mothers so they have very limited influence over teen aged boys and very limited resources such as time.....not anyones fault but their own but the situation is here now and we have to deal with it. I don't have any answers but I am pretty certain that eliminating resources is not a good one....I think making the resources available more efficient is the answer but how to do that is anyones guess....

Nope, can't be. Definitely culturally accepted. Parents buy their kids guns, drugs and a blue or red bandana for their 5th birthday to get the ball rolling, haven't you heard?

Not really. The gunman that ended his shooting spree recently on the campus of Santa Monica College was middle eastern.

Christopher Dorner the shooter in another recent California mass shooting was black.

Seung-Hui Cho, the Virginia Tech shooter, was Korean.

Peter Odighizuwa, the shooter at the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Virginia was not a white nigerian.

Lee Malvo and John Allen Muhammed of the DC Sniper shootings were both black.

I am sure there are others but those are the ones I came up with off the top of my head.

ETA: The Fort Hood Shooter, Major Hassan, was middle eastern.

It certainly doesn't mean that it isn't culturally accepted.

Your family anecdote doesn't change or shed light on the reality of Black society in America.

When you have an epidemic of dysfunction across a culture the explanation is probably internal contemporary behavior and not some cause to be found scores if not hundreds of years ago.

At some point in time a generation has to be responsible for its behavior and not blame it on others, even if it is comforting.

It would certainly seem that way if you listen to some folks. Actually I wouldn't be surprised if some of this didn't happen (not to the extreme as suggested) but the numbers are small, IMHO....I know that there are probably parents who are also gang members who would encourage their kids, either directly or indirectly, to follow in their footsteps but the number has to relatively low....

This isn't a poor thing or even a black/Hispanic thing. It's specific areas of this country. And it's accepted. No one really cares.

Sure, but what evidence did the poster who intially claim this was culturally accepted use besides the simple frequency of these acts?

I agree and I've never argued otherwise.
