It's amazing how some people live so long with little or extremely limited brain.

Why no racist comments from the folks making them in the other stabbing article?

Nah, racism is long gone in America today...

If find it amusing and sad that Joe is usually the first one to bring up race on these blogs. Yes, Joe, racism is long from gone, look in the mirror.

I will tell you why there are no racial comments because it happened on the West Side of Waterloo with the city make up of 81.6% white and 13.9% African American with over 80% of those African Americans living on the East Side of Waterloo. There is a high chance that the guy wasn’t black. Next 81.6% of the people that blog on the Courier are going to say there wasn’t an assault, that the bother actually was making toast and taters that morning and slipped on a rug and landed on the other brother stabbing him with the knife while asking him did he want some toast and taters which mistakenly sounded like “traitor”. For the hiding behind the neighbor’s house he was actually running to get help and just ran out of breath. We need to face it we have white people who commit crimes and we have black people that commit crimes. It doesn’t make a different what your racial makeup is, a violent crime is just that a violent crime. I will admit a high percentage of the violent crime has been coming from my culture. People outside of Waterloo see and judge us as whole and right now they see our city as a dump. I was working out of state and I told a young lady where I lived and we had this big conversation on how they bypass Waterloo, when they travel north. To those that do live on the West Side of town in $100,000 to $500,000 homes, people outside of this state look at you as if you live on the East Side. We need to fix this!!!
