    Mom loses 4th child to gun violence (Race thread)

    Now, before clicking the link, I want you to vote on what race you think this woman and her children are.
    This is a side thread to the racist thread, and I want to know why you selected your choice and what you think about what that means.

    Somehow I don't imagine this thread will stay open long.

    Odds are it's black (unless its 4 kids in a single instance in which case its probably some crazy white guy). % wise black make up more of the lower economic group, which is the group most commonly the victim of gun violence.

    Voting African American. They are most likely to face Poverty in a combination with racial discrimination which leads to housing in poor, violent areas.

    Tier gear should be available during the leveling process. I don't want to have to mingle with these eltitist jerks in LFR to get gear as it is. I pay a sub fee, I shouldn't have to do LFR to get raid gear, much less Flex or Normal.

    I voted African American, solely based on I'd imagine most gun crime would be done in poorer areas and most African Americans happen to live in poorer areas.

    I had a feeling the children were either going to be Hispanic or African American, i voted for the latter.

    Considering you cant even defend yourself without being banned, this thread wont last past the first page.

    OT: Im going off the assumption this is a story from the US, so Ide have to say african american as my choice, simply because gun crime involving that race is shown alot more on the news. As if they are trying to pin the blame almost.

    My first thought was black but I wasn't sure if it was a trick question or not.

    It really could have been any race, I guess it was just statistically more likely to be a certain race. Of course, that's just assumptions, since no matter what the odds are, I still don't know until I know.

    Yeah, this thread and the poll are just inciting racism. There is no need for such a thread.
