Hispanic robs Pleasanton business

Original post made by Barrett, Castlewood, on May 19, 2010

This guy should be pretty hard to find. Chrome bike and green shoes. I wonder if he will ever do any time or if we will just ship him south to deal with him in the future.

I wrote a comment a few hours ago, now it's gone? No explanation? No, we didn't like this comment because...?

Wow, creepy.

I obviously disagreed with the poster. I believe he is making a blatant smear by his use of labeling the thief chiefly as being Hispanic.

I'll check his past postings and see if he wrote White robs, or White DUI, or, White Meth Dealer, or White Wife Beater, or White Bigot, etc. and whether or not that described person needs to be shipped to the south (Alabama is what I'm guessing he meant).

On that note, what in the article implies the robber needs to be shipped south?

PW, how about acknowledge you deleted my original posting without comment so you don't creep people out.

Below is my original statement and whether or not PW agrees with it, it is indeed a viewpoint, stated in a quirky manner, that does not attack the messenger but the MESSAGE and uses no foul language (the web agrees, search terms: asinine bad word). Web Link

Your second post is a lot more effective. I completely agree with your sentiments.
I have lived in California for ten years (I'm white) and my experience with the Latinos in this area is that they have better manners than the white people. The Latinos are pleasant, gracious and considerate. The whites are narcissistic and unfriendly. I'm generalizing, but if Latinos outnumbered whites around here, it would be an improvement.
