This is a guest post by Ozy Frantz. I do not necessarily endorse everything it says, but I do contingently agree with a lot of it. Content note for profanity, social justice stuff, manosphere stuff, and graphic descriptions of sex. I trust that any debate this kicks up will be marked by courtesy and good manners on all sides, in a spirit of sincere collaborative truth-seeking — SA] I.
Not that long ago, really… And you have to wonder: Of course, the beatdowns and robberies are all for fun, for the most part. Colin Flaherty is right, white girls do bleed a lot. The young woman pictured rightmade the U.
Daily Mail after being set upon by a gang of eight or more, including girls wielding boards, in a neighborhood popular with prosperous young urbanites.
Woman jumped, savagely beaten by 10 teens in Baltimore https: But it fits into this context: Baltimore seems likely once again to end the year with the highest or second-highest per capita homicide rate in the U.
The slightly undercounted murder toll: Hide the bodies as you will, the city is on track for upward of homicides, for a rate of almost 57 per hundred thousand. Louis aims again for top billing at about 63 per k. The local response is interesting. The focus makes sense, because you can do something about football failures.
The beatdowns drew attention from television news because so many involved white people being targeted in neighborhoods that draw tourists, students, and comfortable locals. They hit my husband in the head. The same night, visitors from the Maryland suburbs were attacked. These victims were African-American.
As to the public sector response, it came at the end of this week—from Mayor Catherine Pugh.
Or maybe the gangbangers did sense the last. Whatever benefit may be achieved by taking youth offenders off the streets today will come at a tremendous cost when these young people eventually emerge from adult prisons. What Is America Waiting For? Could it be that if people who commit armed robbery at age sixteen remain a threat to society at twenty-five, they should never emerge?
While Europeans are being told that terror attacks should be viewed as the new norma l, Baltimore residents are being told the same about violent crime committed by younger African-Americans.
And some city leaders make the point more broadly. City Councilman Brandon M. While younger African-Americans were attacking more than a half-dozen people in the Federal Hill neighborhood on Halloween, Councilman Scott dressed up as Malcolm X and visited District 2 classrooms distributing treats.
The real Malcolm X is pictured right.
This recent violence is the surface decay. The social rot in Baltimore is broad and deep. Since the summer, Feds have charged eight Baltimore police detectives with crimes including armed robbery that were committed while they worked in cahoots with a heroin gang.
Press releases from the Department of Justice, U.Trevor Noah and The World's Fakest News Team tackle the biggest stories in news, politics and pop culture.
When I was in highschool around 14/15 years old, everybody was playing counterstrike (and so was I). L33tspeak was hitting its alltime high. In computer class we were just playing around with the computers, when I stumbled upon the wikipedia page of my hometown. In , the forst "u mad" single topic blog was launched on Tumblr and internet culture blog Urlesque asserted that "U Mad" was being replaced by "U Jelly".
The first archived 4chan  thread using "u mad" took place on March 28th, Eric Theodore Cartman (often referred to as just Cartman) is a main character in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by alphabetnyc.comn is one of four central characters in South Park, along with Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, and Kenny alphabetnyc.comn first appeared, originally named Kenny, in prototypical form in a animated short.
This has less to do with the “U mad bro” school of arguments, and everything to do with pure practicality. Again: the point of an argument is to persuade people to change their minds; as soon as you start getting angry and insulting people, you’ve given them reasons to quit listening.
A good friend and coworker, when he was a teenager, had the police called on him by his mother when she found his napalm stash. A former boss of mine apparently has a few of his seized creations on display at the local ATF headquarters.
