  • WHY?

    Why is it the suspects are always black or hispanic in these shootings. You never hear about white people or asians doing things like this.

      Why is that? Here is why. When they find the shooter ask him where his father is? That is the problem. There is not FATHER FIGURE in a lot of these gang members lives. Single mothers raising a child or children becomes a real problem or divorced families. That is the reality. Look at the African American community. Same thing. It starts at the home. Just cause people can have kids doesn’t mean they should. Raising a human is a very difficult thing and requires a Mother and a Father. Lots of these communities (Latin American, African American) don’t put enough social pressure on women to not have kids out of a healthy marriage. The communities and elders need to step up and reinforce the importance of a HOME and family and a strong bond marriage. Then have kids and be committed to raising them. Building up a human, raising them, creating a person of values who is educated and adds value to society is the greatest gift you can give the child and society and is the greatest sacrifice you can give on this earth (being a Good parent). With respect to all, A father.
