Just because they're poor doesn't give them the right to be scumbags!

I've been keeping an eye on the riots that have erupted in London. It looks like that the violence and looting could spread to other parts of England, perhaps even reaching into Wales and Scotland.

I've also been observing the Philadelphia flash mob attacks as well as those that occurred at the Wisconsin State Fair. Here's news links to those for those of you who haven't heard about them as it seems that the national media has provided little coverage, especially about what went on in Wisconsin:

So now we're hearing of the reasons excuses for the riots, the attacks, and the looting:

"Oh, they're disenfranchised!"

"They have no money or a job!"

"The white man is keeping them down!"

"They can't make it without more help from the government!"

Thousands of excuses can be made for such behavior, but none can cover the fact that said behavior is just plain wrong! Unfortunately the majority of black youths are raised in fatherless homes with little to no moral guidance from whoever the authority figure is in the home (mother, grandmother, aunt, etc.) thus we now have a generation of young hoodlums unleashed onto the world! Bottom line, it begins at home, and no amount of excuses or blame will negate that! So until we see a change in this "the-world-owes-me" mentality to something more of a "can-do" attitude, we will see more flareups like the mayhem we've seen over the past week!

Peace (more than ever!)!
