    yeah more and more reports coming in that this was gang related, planned, not random incident between up to 5 individuals.

    "Gang-related" seems to be a euphemism for black-on-black violence.
    Poseidon and KBSR like this.

    Just turned the TV on and the CNN,MSNBC are spinning the story. the contributors are already saying "something needs to change so this does not happen again"

    I'm sorry if you mistook that for racism, and I can assure you I am many things, but racist is not one of them. I was agreeing that ""Gang-related" seems to be a euphemism for black-on-black violence" in the media.

    I understood what he meant. Why does it automatically go there?

    Thought I had established a little better of a report than that around here. Guess not, oh well, it's the Internet.


    Regarding the shooting, I hope everyone is okay.

    No worries...I guess some people don't realize that that is a racially charged word as it isn't used very often anymore, but for future reference...yes...it most definitely comes across as a racist comment, especially when speaking about "gang related" and black-on-black violence.

    Because spade is a racially charged word...even if that was not the intended meaning.

    I hate to say this but Bangers do indeed go to College. Judges often give them a choice between going to school or jail. This is to hopefully "rehabilitate" them. I've had my share of them in my classes. Usually they just quit coming after a few weeks. Also, rival gang members come on campus looking for certain individuals and an armed confrontation can happen.
    Never get out of the boat....

    Really? Around here, "calling a spade a spade" has long-meant being blunt and plain-spoken.

    Just looked it up, you are right. I had never heard it used in that way before. My apologies!

    I meant it in agreement with what Mike had said. After looking up the origin of the phrase it does appear to derive from the derogatory term.

    Two shooters, apparently; happened on a school's campus grounds; one shooter in custody and the other fled. That's about all that's known. Could have been two students, or two coming in from the surrounding community for a hit or a score, or the number could be off (one shooter, not two). Too much is vague at this point. If it is two, hopefully the one will rat out the other soon enough.

    Makes one wonder just how far this would have gotten had nearly every upstanding adult on that campus were armed, or whether they would have even attempted it there. Time for people to wake up about the possibilities, with crime as rampant and random as it is. You just never know when or where.
