    black on black crime should be a major concern amongst afro-americans!!!

    why can’t earl ofari-hutchinson and other civil rights leaders ever mention this truthful fact and stop blaming white people for all of their horrible problems.

    How will the police find these suspects who can’t be described, profiled or arrested without being accused of racism? What a joke. Perhaps they can do a road block and check out some old white grandmothers on a shopping trip.

    Well looks like changing the name to South Los Angeles did not stop crime. What a shock. I thought for sure by changing the name of SOUTH CENTRAL L.A. would solve all problems.

    Turns out it really was some politicians idea just to look good and get votes.
