I find the white people are racists comments here hysterical. Sorry, I am black but I notice more racial slurs and hated against white people in the community than I have ever received in a lifetime. In fact, I find most white people try too hard to be politically correct anymore and it is sort of sad. All I have to call is racism and people will flock by my side when it is becoming the other way around. Oh well. I just wanted to make an observation is all. As far as Crunchy is concerned, if you are going to live by the rules of the street and keep flashing gang symbols, I don't see hope for you. Most people in the community take being shot as a wake up call. I'll pray for him and his family.

Big surprise, a rapper has been shot.

When will these idiots learn.
Using a gun don't make you tough, itm akes you a *****, having a gang of people beat up one person isn't tough it makes you a *****, acting tough does make you tough it makes you a *****.
