What animal predators live near you?

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

A little insensitive, but being middle aged and seeing your area change this is understandable. Let's be honest people are more dangerous nowadays than animals. 16th street mall in Denver is not where you want to be anymore which is sad. Montebello is in Denver metro and was a new and upscale area 40-50 years ago... Now it's dimly lit and called "Mountghetto". Parts of Aurora are also dimly lit and a lot of people are out looking for trouble.

Here in El Paso everybody drinks and there is a wild west mentality with many out in the bars. To be honest the soldiers from Ft. Bliss are causing and involved in a lot of trouble. Fights in strip clubs, murders, assaults, etc. It's in the paper on a monthly or weekly basis. This year three soldiers we're involved in a love triangle and the women had another soldier follow the guy from a club, ram and run him off the road which killed him. This happened 5 minutes away from my home.

Soldiers are banned from smoke shops and a few strip clubs because they smoke synthetic marijuana and lose their shit. To be honest it appears to be primarily the African American soldiers. They mingle with the low class African American crowds down here and often find themselves outta the military or in huge trouble. It's sad to watch many young African Americans in their early to mid 20s in paper for death, assault, or becoming victims to it. These kids are from outta town, but gravitate towards jailbirds and hoodrat women that are trouble. Doesn't help that we have so many bars and liquor stores on every corner.

A lot of African Americans like myself have Native American blood. Europeans have been drinking alcohol for probably a thousand years if not longer and we can't handle it like those with European blood can. It's a fact.
Honestly, you sound like a self-hating negro, and it's sad to see you typing this shit and agreeing with racist Gumbo. "Dindu nuffin" is a blatenty racist statement aimed at blacks.
You should know that all blacks are not inner-city filth, and instead of lamenting on the ones that are fucking things up, try to spread some positivity. As far as the military goes, I see more white y getting dishonorable discharged, and apprehended, and having alcohol-related incidents.
I am black with a big-ass Indian nose, and I can handle my liquor, so stop that boot-locking "can't handle my alcohol" built-in-excuse bullshit.
I expect the BS from the racists here, as they think there are so few of us they can say what they want with no objections, but see you here fanning their fire? It's a damned shame. This wasn't even a thread about race, and you turned it into something ugly.

I love myself and my people. I don't think @gumbo2176 is racist and we can agree to disagree on that. He was speaking on burglaries and crime I'm not going to ignore the issue in his city and pull some positivity out of my ass. I've seen my city slowly change too. I spoke on what I see in my city and am not bullshitting about it. You don't live in my city.

It's a fact that Europeans have a higher tolerance for alcohol because they have been drinking it for centuries longer than natives.

This isn't the politics section this was a discussion between two men and the topic at hand carried on. Do your part and we can take this up elsewhere or at another time.

Ok, so you drag me back into this discussion. Yes I said "hood rats" are a serious problem in my city because going by the thread title, "Predatory Animals near you", humans qualify as animals, and some of us are very predatory. The term "Hood Rats" is not specifically aimed at black people as you want to jump to conclusions. There are white, Hispanic, Asian and Middle Eastern hood rats in every major city with a mixed population.

They are the ones that are making life miserable and unsafe for law abiding citizens with their lack of moral compass and think anything they do is OK as long as the ends justify the means.

I've worked with many people of color over the years and almost to a man, they were good, hard working people who were out there doing their best to better their lives, the lives of their families and making a big difference in a good way in their community.

So, you can think of me any way you want, but you really don't know me, and I don't know you other than from posts on this site. But I do see like many reactionary black men, you see racism at a higher rate than some.

Dindu nuffin is a racist slur. He knows that, or else he wouldn't have used it. Him freely using it should tell you what he thinks of black people.

I have a problem with you saying dindu nuffin, motherfucker. I'm not reactionary. I have a problem with people starting shit just for the sake of shits and giggles. If you want to make a racist thread, just make it, and I will stay out of it. But don't try hide the racism with "there are hood rats of all color". You know exactly what you were doing. This thread had nothing to do with race until you tried to poison it. Dindu nuffin is a derogatory slur towards a black person. You know that. And then you edit out the n-word.

OK slick, just where in any response I've EVER made on this board have I use the so-called N-Word? See, you just proved my point of you seeing racism where it doesn't exist and resorting to personal attacks on me for the sake of slaking your unwarranted anger toward me.

Motherfucker-----really???? Like I said once before, you love to pick and choose what you wish to respond to like editing vocal responses by picking and choosing what the listener hears.

Nice try, but I'm not biting.

I have absolutely no idea what this means, but if you're done with it, so am I.
Oh, so now you are feigning ignorance? That's what a lot of you do after you stir the pot. Just keep your racist jargon to yourself, and we are good. This was a thread about animal until you decided to change the narrative.

The narrative was about animals and in particular, predatory animals. I stayed within the parameters of the conversation since humans are animals and many of them are predators. If you can't see that, you are not feigning ignorance, you are truly ignorant.

If you have an issue with the context of my posts, then put me on "Ignore" or quit reading them if your panties are so easily ruffled.

@gumbo2176 totally off topic for this thread I'm a big fan of James Lee Burke and was wondering if your familiar with his novels?
Honestly, I've never heard of the guy, but will check out some of his works now that you've brought it to my attention.

I've been a reader of many true crime novels or fictional mystery novels for the most part. I'm not a fan of futuristic sci-fi stuff or things like "Lord Of The Rings" and such.
