Funny    

31. I work for the City of Beverly Hills and some of my coworkers don't understand why I do my best to keep blacks out of the city. Now they know why. When I see just one (unless they are an employee) hanging around anywhere, I call dispatch and BHPD is more than happy to show up. Nearly all the crime in Beverly Hills is caused by blacks (and mexicans) like this rapper.

You are stupid! First, this guy had enough money to buy you twice! Second, The Beverly Center IS NOT in Beverly Hills it's in Los Angeles. It's called The Beverly Center because it's on Beverly Blvd. With that said, get your city working a*ss over to my place on Roxbury and pick up my trash!

To all of you flipping out over the "Beverly Hills Employee" you've got to know he's yanking your chain, right? And whoever said the Beverly Center isn't in Beverly Hills is correct.

And Beverly Hills is more concerned with protecting the money than it is with protecting whites. Bottom line...don't be stupid and racist if you don't know what you're talking about don't talk.

Where this young man was killed is irrelevant. The fact is that a person had such little regard for life that he felt it was ok to take another's. And as long as we have a glorification of violence, elements of society that grow up with no hope and easy access to illegal firearms this will continue.

Though I did not know of Dolla, this is such a tragic loss for his family, his friends, and his fans. To be only 21 and shot in broad daylight amazes me. I am very thankful the LA police were extremely quick to find the person responsible for taking such a young and aspiring man. Let us all learn from this tragedy by enjoying each and every day that God gives us to its fullest...we should all love one another for there will be a day for each of us which will be our last. My thoughts and prayers are with all who loved Dolla.
