    So when I was blasted by JW for saying black and Hispanic gangs use heroin to support their orginization I was wrong right…wake up..black and Hispanic gangs sell this stuff to whites and no one cares…the White House says nothing. But one black man is killed by police and they are all over it. More heroin deaths than ever by DWI and no one cares.

    • JW

      Yeah, one brown guy gets busted for dealing heroin and you IGNORE the 300 white people who get busted for dealing and are even posted on Shorebeat. They don’t exist or anything. That definitely confirms your worldview that evil blacks and hispanics are out to victimize white people with drugs. Please take your persecution complex somewhere else- like the asylum!

        Statistics support him, not you. Minorities commit a majority of the crimes even though they make up a small part of the population. Go cry to the the FBI and the department of justice. They collect and release the statistics proving it.

        Statistic support me you illiterate fantasy land troll: white people like and sell drugs more than anyone else. Sorry if reality is biased against you :'( http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonkblog/wp/2014/09/30/white-people-are-more-likely-to-deal-drugs-but-black-people-are-more-likely-to-get-arrested-for-it/

        Sorry child.
        Minorities commit more crimes than whites. Go cry to the FBI statistics department.

      • JW

        Funny how I just posted stats proving you wrong and you want to ignore them by making up something that doesn’t exist, but I need to somehow look up. Nice trick, but it just shows how much of a fraud you are. Grow a brain you inbred rightist.

      Funny thing is black on black crime kills more blacks than white on black. Look at Chicago. Yet no one riots there every week when 10 people die.

      • Brian

        Every week? 10 killings in Chicago a day is considered a slow day…

        I meant weekend.

    Another filthy illegal immigrant criminal who didnt come to this country for “a better life” or for “love”, right Jeb Bush?
    DEPORT, CLOSE the border.

    Not enforcing immigration law is a criminal and Obama is the one allowing it.
