Obama...

Soon after it was announced last night that he was our elected President, people in my neighborhood (several people) went outside with their guns and shot them into the air. The extreme majority of my neighborhood is black. I get that blacks are happy, but is there need for that? I'm sure half the guns that were shot are illegal!

  • "May be it was the WHITIES in your 'hood shooting angrily at God" heheh that was just funny lol.

    i think what she is trying to say is her neighborhood is ghetto as hell. ghetto can be blac,, white,hispanic, mixed, whatever. and personally i cant stand the ghetto, its nto a black thing.im not racist. if i was racist i would of married a white guy lol. but when you live in low povery area's, unfortunately some ppl are so depressed about their situation instead of bettering it, they turn to drugs and guns and stupid crap. just call the cops. its not a race thing really with that, its just a low poverty area

  • lol, it depends on where you live. Gun shots in the air are normal here in Texas. Not saying it's right,it's actually quite stupid, but it happens every New Years, so Obama's winning must have been something to celebrate for those who did that.

  • In my neighborhood there was audible cheering from all around and lots of cars honking in celebration. It's a multi ethnic neighborhood. No guns were heard here.

  • Guns can only be in the hands of criminals with the Obama plan, remember?
