I went to the amren website and read a very disturbing story. I wonder what everyone's take is on the motive.

From what I gathered he murdered seven then shot himself.
(BTW amen is a white racist site.)

I disagree on your take on the AMREN website. It is not a racist website. It is a website that talks about race openly

Oh, my, I just went to the AMREN site and read some comments talking about how blacks aren't as smart as whites. Not racist, my behind.

Did you read the article on today's AMREN site that said that only 7 schools in Oregon have minorities in calculus class?

"Your" facts bother me. Do you even know what a minority is?

I don't have a problem with facts. I do have a problem with the racist comments on that website.

I went to the AMREN website and I read a very disturbing news article under Tuesday, July 12. A group of about thirty "urban" youths ransacked a grocery store in Texas. They pulled things off the shelf and started eating in the store, they stole things, and they even assaulted people. Can anyone tell me what the heck is going on?

If it similar to what's happening in Chicago, they are sometimes called flash mobs (giving the dancing flash mobs a bad name).
I can give you my opinion. Gangs are a serious problem in cities and collar counties of Chicago. It's summer, there is no school for those that would attend. It's summer so more time is spent outside. (shootings always increase in the summer in Chicago as well) Add to that this economy. There are no jobs for unskilled or underskilled workers. There are no jobs for teens. The unemployment rate in Chicago is reported at just below the national average (that of course does not include all those that aren't even looking for jobs anymore), the teen unemployment rate in Chicago is 27.5%. These youths have nothing to do, gangs are attractive to youths with nothing to do and few prospects for their future.
So, it's a fall-out from the bad economy and it's affect on at risk youth. Of course, that is my opinion.

Edited to add that it has a racial component only because there is high unemployment among minorities along with a vision of little future prospects.

Well the answer to that would be like the French Foreign Legion perhaps the UN would start one the national troops would not be necessary, Many nations could dump their unwanted and the UN could absorb them into light infantry and all the obsolete equipment too!
