      Hmmmmm, didn’t say ANYTHING that the people involved were African Americans. Please stop hiding your racism behind fill-in letters for an absolutely terrible description. African Americans, if you don’t mind, are human beings just like all of us. You seem to be a racist………..BIG time!!!! So stop!!!

      It was not Asain or ILLEGAL ALIENS this time. It was mudflaps doing what they do best, sell drugs, collect welfare and play mudflaps and mudflaps.

    People have the right to feel however they want kathy. Freedom of speech also, so while you may not agree with him, stop trying to stop him from expressing himself.

    @ Lou Luna they were there first if u want to get racist


    How sad; it’s as if criminals have no respect for Los Angeles’s strict gun laws.

      It is also because they ran out of gift cards (guns for cash) so the criminals kept their guns.

    Before you leave a comment of anyone’s blog find out the “FACTS” first before making ignorant and uneducated statement about someone’s race. For your information, their are whites, Hispanics, Asians, and Blacks that reside in south LA. Whatever color the victim may have been it’s a human being who was targeted at random. I pray for you negative, hate-filled loonies. Don’t be mad b/c blacks are STRONG, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE and the name calling washes off like soap and water. …..
