I mean damn i haven't been able to answer it for the longest. Just go onto Youtube and search "Hood Fights" and it's us actin like we don't have any sense. The smallest things set us off, whether out at a club, in a store or at church if a fellow black person says something we don't like 'S"h" quickly hits the fan". What are your guests/ answers, I honestly don't know.

    I don't think blacks are any more aggressive than any other group. Humans are all animals after all, and there are people in every race who exhibit that animalistic behavior. However, I'll say that blacks and browns seem to escalate 🤬 faster. I mean white boys fight at clubs and parties just as much, maybe even more, than blacks, but it ends with the fight, they don't come back and shoot 🤬 up.

    Being taught to fear/hate/ and distrust each other.. Its a symptom of slavery oppression and being mentally beaten down.

    Also peoples egos.. they are territorial over 🤬 they don't own.

    We're not any more aggressive towards each other than anybody else. We just record the 🤬 like idiots more. NIKE dont make more shoes but they do advertise more. So people buy in to it more.

    Same with us. Soon as a fight break out we got a damn cell phone camera rolling. In that respect it's more about class. Rednecks film their fights black ass hood 🤬 film theirs. We may not be more agreesive but we do advertise the aggression more and media doesnt mind perpetuating it too (not the news but online video channels etc).

    Perfect example is black dude that got his ass beat by the old white man. Black girls video taping it snickering lol

    Blacks are no more aggressive than anyone else. Only difference is as darc stated, we record it or the media shows it. Based off the stereotype that we are naturally more aggressive and less rational than other ethnic groups.

    i've actually read things to prove somewhat otherwise...no race is naturally more aggressive but there are circumstances that can make one group appear to be more aggressive than others...

    So i guess we're more prone to see Whites, Asians, Lations ect doing/acting like this [video]http://www.ilovepwnage.com/video.php?v=Mjg3OA==[/video]

    Im not saying it doesn't happen in their race BUT, i could give you alot more examples of blacks acting in a more aggressive manner towards each other as opposed to black vs every other race.The "Spit" is sickening

    When you add environment to the equation, sure. When certain basic needs aren't being met, of course. However, I thought the thread was making it seem as if blacks were naturally more aggressive, which is a stereotype and not true as you already stated.

    the main reason black people are so aggressive towards each other cause of the environment we live in,and wasnt taught discipline.

    oh yes,self hatred we are so good at killing one another that the white man is making so much money from our ignorance

    why u think the KKK retiring their hoods and robes like NBA jerseys?

    we will 🤬 one another just because he wore the wrong color and hell we've been dying for 100's of years by white folks for being BLACK?

    we will take from each other when we see a brother or sista,riding clean and living fine.

    the white man programmed 🤬 like animals to 🤬 and attack each other which we see everyday on the news

    the white man see us on rap shows and internet attacking one another cause they like seeing black people being 🤬

    the white man can sleep good everyday,cause they know the black man wont 🤬 them for being White but we 🤬 sure will 🤬 one another for them

    All these useless gangs poppin up everywhere,🤬 claiming neighborhoods that aint theres,🤬 dying over DRUGS

    🤬 on corners selling drugs,when did you ever see a white man selling drugs on the corner? NEVER the white man got bigger fish to fry we just the bait to take their fall

    Off topic, but I was lookin at the Huey Newton's Revolutionary Suicide book in your avatar. I just finished reading that book earlier this week. Very profound.

    Because most of us think racism no longer exist,so we take it out on each other, instead of trying to fix government problems.

    a lot of black people feel that they have to live up to a preconceived notion of blackness. The stereotypical image of a black male is one that is big, strong, powerful, dominant etc. Whenever a person comes along and challenges this standard of blackness it immediately results in conflict which is why there is a lot of beef in the hood. Every dude isnt going to be the alpha male but every dude wants to perpetuate that image. A lot of pretenders to the throne, but no real kings. You know the real alpha males when you see them ie Tupac, TI, Diddy(as much as I hate him), Damon Dash etc. They have that aura to them

    the underlined is the number 1 killer of black men in the US SMH

    and the sad part is a lot of cats don't even see the signs they suffering from it SMH

    this is a good thread topic even though most aggression and violence is usually directed at members of your own race in any group

    it's very rare a person decides to 🤬 with somebody of another race unless they live in a mixed community...and even then it's still rare compared to intra-racial tension

    especially with black folks because it holds us back even more than others

    I think the t/s answered their own question right in the beginning by youtubing "Hood Fights." It's not like he typed in Wall Street Fights.

    The less money in an area, the more likely people are going to fight to defend they little that they do have ("territory," pride, money, etc.)
