  1. It's always the colors people starting shit. They always cause trouble. White people respect each other. Maybe minority should do the same

  2. I don't condone any kind of race fighting,but I'll say this,if anybody tries to hurt you,and I mean my people black people,you represent your people,you fight and you fight hard…

  3. Fight between Hispanic=latinos and blacks, not against whites..Brown, white, black, bi racial, asian people are good people, then we have a minority poorly educated that needs to be racist, to look good and overpowered over others, because they dont like themselves…a shame..

  4. So stupid. Whether this is race or gang related, or both, this is beyond dumb. Minorities fighting and killing each other while the white men laugh.

  5. They need to stop they know who's president right now don't play into the white supremacists' hands it won't end good for black or brown people. Black and Latino parents are the most responsible they need to teach their kids not to hate.

  6. Smashes bottle over head Let's start a fucking race riot … nah but seriously we as black and brown people need to come together

  7. Man I look back and dude the news really wanted a scoop on a story trying to make Hawthorne high look as bad as they can ha nothing changed I’m going to miss that day it was a highlight of my high class year

  8. Everybody always says that black should link up with Hispanics but that's not gonna happen. And the reason is because hispanics are basically Europeans mixed with native Americans which is exactly what white Americans are. That's why wherever you go whether that be on the street in jail or prison whites and hispanics always run together they're basically blood cousins. And blacks want anybody to be on their side so they try their best to get hispanics on their side.
    Lol, sorry blacks, you black and ugly.
    White and brown 4ever!!

  9. It is time for the black community to built schools and Segregate ourselves from this nasty Hispanics, Asians and the most evil race of the all white people who’s prime directive is to exterminate black people

  10. I wish they'd just settle their differences through academic contests. That would benefit everyone at the end of the day.
