Ohio- How does setting 89 FIRES Compute?

i am shocked and dismayed at the violence that spread across Ohio late Monday night and into Tuesday. and for what? because your football team won? who will try to "justify" the motivations behind these garbage 'riots' and actions.

Goal post torn down, 89 fires set after Ohio State's national title win - Chicago Tribune

just LOOK at these hooligans!



and they wonder why we all get nervous or tense when a white male between 18-24 wearing a black trench coat enters a movie theater or elementary school. do they not bring this on themselves with their mass shootings and post-game rioting? why won't whites take collective responsibility for the actions of a few?

i call upon leaders of the white community -- Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mitch McConnell -- to CONDEMN these acts of senseless violence and destruction, and for us to have a national conversation about the usually unpunished lawlessness that's rampant in the white community. how long will they look the other way while their children drink underage, smoke marijuana, date rape coeds, and set fires when good things happen? what kind of message are we sending to these children that you can do awful things and get away with it, simply on the basis of your skin color and socioeconomic status? why do they deserve to be called "celebrators" and not "rioters"? where are their parents?

Yeah, the usual race-baiters are remaining tight lipped...

A lot of football fans are absolute morons. I am a big fan of my team, enjoy going to matches, but these kind of rioters ruin the game for everyone. Never, ever understood the fun in destroying property, setting stuff on fire or fighting with other hooligans.

what do you think would happen if white people -- especially white college kids, in particular, the ones at UVA and BYU and UVM and UMASS and UCONN and countless southern schools like Ole Miss -- were to start dressing better (pull up and wash that baseball cap!), maybe do more volunteer work (one saturday a semester with your frat doesn't count), maybe give money to strangers on the street (frat dues don't count), maybe have their leaders collectively denounce violence of all kinds, not least of which the plague of destroying their own communities when their sportsball team wins?

white people need to take responsibility for themselves and realize that they are responsible for the fires and the girlfriend punching and the alcohol poisoning? maybe things would change and we wouldn't wake up to these stories every sportsball season.

but i won't hold my breath.it's not going to happen with a half-white president in office, that's for sure. he's so beholden to white interest groups -- the GOP, NRA, FRC, AIPAC, Wall Street, Silicone Valley -- that he's just a puppet and seeks to divide us rather than unite us.

we need to be careful here and not stereotype

Just because most crime is committed by white males,
one should not presume most white males are likely to commit crimes

Ha! I think this might be the first time in over 10 years that I've rated a thread.

Ohio- How does setting 89 FIRES Compute?

I don't think that is much of a race issue, it's a stupidity issue. It's an issue of the fact that many OSU fans are psychos and people (doesn't matter which color) are in total disregard for others. I used to live in Toledo, Ohio right at the Mich/Ohio border. Those people are crazy. The night before OSU-UM is pure madness.
However, I would definitely like to see the media condemn these crazy morons. To get that invested into a frikin football game is unreal, yet typical OSU thing to do.
I haven't watched Fox News much in about 4-5 years, are they covering this story and hopefully condemning it? How about other cable news outlets? I surely hope someone is covering it. It really seems like a double standard if they cover the Ferguson stuff but not this.
I'm just so sick and tired of this constant rioting. And this is just totally pointless drunkards. We don't need anymore of this, we already have this going on in the rest of the country! This has really got to stop.
