      Typical nigro behavior. Somethings will never change!

  • Whitey

    I have to tell you, Mpinga, when you watch the news every day… 9 out of 10 crimes are committed by black men. The truth may hurt but the numbers don’t lie.

  • Whitey

    Blinky, Mexico is a septic tank for the U.S. I wished all of you that loved Mexico would migrate your way back instead of trying to ruin California.

  • Blinky

    Whitey, You are a pupy head! I been here most of my life since I was little. I’m an U.S Citizen and you can’t do anything about it!! DUMB ASS!!
    100% MEXICAN!!!!

  • Blinky

    Whitney, people like you are the ones ruining California. LOL
    What are you thinking?? You are no better!! Look yourself at a mirror.

  • HKIS

    Like Chris Rock said, The best place to keep your money from being robbed by black people is not the bank, but in books, keep it in books because books are like kryptonite to them. Anything with knowledge the will not get close to.

    I would love to see white people stand on the corner in the heat and sell fruit to earn enough money to feed your family!!! MEXICANS are very hardworking people, that;s why many come here to the US to seek better oppertunity..the ones that ruin their lives and turn into criminals are the ones that dont deserve to be here.i love this country but not all Mexicans are criminals,and not all black people are, and not all white people are..the ones that are, are making their own race and this country look bad.

    Just remember this quote..

    “We have an aging white America.
    They are not making babies. They are dying.
    The explosion is in our population . . .
    They are shi##ing in their pants with fear…I love it.
    We have got to eliminate the gringo,
    and what I mean by that is,
    if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him

    Per the article, they were both wearing ski masks. How could someone tell their race and age? The skin that is showing on one does not look like a black complexion, it looks more like the skin color of another race. Plus the hair does not look like black hair. People can’t figure out why there are so many unsolved crimes. I will tell you why, it is because they are looking for black people, and the crimes were committed by another race.

      It’s just a given that it was Black men duh! I guess you don’t read the news much . Kinda typical for Black folk to do.

  • goldminer fan

    The racism and ignorance shown in some of these comments is appalling. Do any of these writers know any people of color. I do and have over the years. Yes, there are some bad apples but most are hard working people.

    Now has anyone seen these dudes? Hopefully, they will be arrested before anyone gets hurt. Usually blatant robbers eventually get caught.

  • uggaboo

    This isn’t black men’s fault, nor is it the fault of the economy: Elk Grove should not have been built so close to South Sac. It is EG’s fault! Yes, it is too!! Everyone of integrity and intelligence should just move away from EG because EG and SSac are becoming one and the same. It is very sad to watch. Very. And there is nothing anyone can do about it, except move. Blame blame blame the victim, oh so easy to do. And watch us move away. And watch more stores become empty eye sores–they aren’t ugly in SSac, because they are the norm.
