@Swagyolo420, No! This is Loss!!
@Ze Grammar Nazi, No this is Patrick!

I hope you know this is loss, don't wanna catch you slippin up
I know someone will say it’s art or some dumb sh*t, but why’s he standing like that to shoot a dude in the back of the head
@celtics313131, it’s supposed to be a reference to a famous Jim Crow picture.
@Lightbox, I knew it would be
@celtics313131, because you touch yourself at night.
@celtics313131, I didn’t get it either until everyone and their mom decided to analyze the video.
@Lightbox, good point
@Empshok, I actually just got done, you mind reader
@celtics313131, whatever, I don't even read my own mind!
@Lightbox, so we are bringing Jim crow up in 2018 why?...
@TheSecretSavage, because racism, and gun violence, and blah blah blah
@WelI Obviously, so we bring up something from around the 1850s to protest what people think America is like in 2018?
*insert obligatory "is this loss?" comment*
I uploaded this to uncut. I credited the original poster and this guy just ripped it. 🖕🏻 u dude
The irony in all of this is most blacks are killed by other blacks, but that’s none of my business. ( sips tea )
@dusty44, the irony is that this picture didn’t need a political flame war and yet here you are
@SexyElonMusk, live with your head in the sand if facts hurt you.
@dusty44, and out of 62 cases of mass shootings between 1982 and 2012 -44 of the killers were white men. So what’s your point?
@Leslie Knope 2020, Those things are unrelated. He was saying black people target black people more than white people target black people. You're just saying that white people are more likely to go on a shooting spree. So his point still stands.
@Spartan 999, that’s just it. I don’t get the point of adding that here.
@Leslie Knope 2020, go look at the fbi statistics 52% of murders committed by 12.1% of population. And it’s worse than that if you break it down, as most murders are committed by men it’s actually 52% of murders committed by around 6% of the American population. But by all means turn this in to a pissing contest instead of trying to address the issue.
@dusty44, According to the FBI’s uniform crime-reporting data for 2016, 90.1 percent of black victims of homicide were killed by other blacks, while 83.5 percent of whites were killed by other whites. While no life is inconsequential, the statistical evidence shows that—just as for blacks when it comes to black-on-black crime—whites are mostly victimized by other whites, with the vast majority of white murders committed by whites. This is because most victims of crime personally know their assailants. And while this is a truth across racial boundaries, no one ever talks about “white-on-white crime.”
Furthermore, the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ arrest data analysis tool shows that less than 1 percent of blacks overall (about 2 percent of black men) commit a violent crime in any given year. This means, factoring in interracial violent offenses, 99 percent of black men do not commit black-on-black crime
@dusty44, But distracted driving kills more Americans each year than terrorism (and black-on-black crime), according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, so, according to you advocating for conversations about black-on-black crime, we should be discussing this first
@dusty44, Both sociologists and criminologists agree that violent crime is a complex socioeconomic phenomenon. Generally speaking, research shows that poor people commit the most crime: According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, during the period from 2008 through 2012, “persons in poor households at or below the federal poverty level (FPL) (39.8 per 1,000) had more than double the rate of violent victimization as persons in high-income households (16.9 per 1,000) ... The overall pattern of poor persons having the highest rates of violent victimization was consistent for both whites and blacks.”
@dusty44, Knowing this, the small difference in crime rates can easily be explained by income disparity. Maybe the question should be why are such a large percentage of black people poor?
@dusty44, If we are going to discuss the number of black people killed by blacks, should we discuss the number of white people murdered, raped and assaulted by fellow whites? Will this conversation include a debate about how blacks are arrested, incarcerated and sentenced for longer periods than whites for committing the same crimes?
Are you willing to detour into a brief explanation of why schools with large percentages of blacks are underfunded even though they have the same tax base and incomes? Do you have time to talk about the wage gap? Unemployment disparities?
All of these factors contribute to crime rates. So if you want to have a conversation about black-on-black crime, you should be careful, because, like most conversations about race, it will end up back in the same place
Edited- I made a mistake and apologize for generalizing in my opinion
@Leslie Knope 2020, you assume I’m white?
@dusty44, since that’s all you have to say in reply, I’ll assume this conversation over.
@Leslie Knope 2020, you make some really valid points! But I grew up in a predominantly black neighborhood, and all the black people there, old and young, would mention black on black crime and obviously none of them hated black people, so that comment you made might be a bit out of bounds!
@celtics313131, ok, I see the point there. Apologies.
@Leslie Knope 2020, you don’t need to apologize to me! I was just making a statement! Have a great day
@dusty44, I want to add that I have NOTHING against you. At all. I shared this information and insight in hopes of making it known that THE GOVERNMENT, “The Man” and “powers that be” are where our fingers should be pointing. The Man that benefits from separating the people, The Man that integrated the drugs and weapons into already stressed communities trying to build something from nothing, The Man that shows only fear mongering tactics on your television. The Government is our enemy. Not any one race/religion.
@dusty44, this is just a loss meme, not a political statement. Shhh.
@Leslie Knope 2020, I haven’t seen an intellectual beating this brutal doled out in a long time. Kudos, friend!
@Leslie Knope 2020, well... if we’re gonna to throw facts around... there is a higher percentage of white people than there are blacks. So you do have to take that into consideration

*sigh* it took me a little bit longer than I care to admit to realize what was up with this picture...
