    It's a funny piece of fiction. Oh, if only we were ALL armed ALL the time. No one would ever be the victim of a crime.

    There once was pirate captain who, whenever it looked like a battle would be imminent would change into a red shirt. After observing this behavior for a few months, one of the crew members asked him what it meant.

    "It's in case I get shot. I don't want you crew members to see blood and freak out."

    "That's very sensible, sir." At that moment, the crew member spotted eight hostile ships on the horizon. The captain all of a sudden looked very concerned.

    "Get my brown pants."

    So using one's race as a descriptor makes someone racist? Guess we better draw up new forms for police reports, obviously they aren't PC.

    I do not have the time or motivation for a full syntactic analysis. In short, the opening implies that the assailant was black.

    It doesn't imply that the assailant was black, just that he wasn't white.

    It doesn't do that, either. It simply identifies at least one potential victim. Maybe the thief held up multiple people and the OP was simply identifying himself.

    Although there could have been multiple "white guys" held up that night, but I am guessing not all of them had a 1911.

    OK, here's my stereotypical rant/two-bit synopsis (even if the account's fiction):

    White boy metrosexual in stupid clothing packing oversized overpriced obsolete weapon. Behaves in criminal fashion after facing down assailant, then feels the need to brag about it.

    You probably just think blacks are criminal types, which why you assumed the assailant was black.

    You know you can't win this one. I would just give up and let people get their shots in.

    BTW, I assumed the criminal was a minority, I just wouldn't admit that I am racist.

    just curious; how many of you have ever been mugged and/or been shot at?

    I'd been mugged at gunpoint (along with 2 girls I was with) and shot at by said bad guy when I was 19.

    I can't be the only one, not in this crime infested country of outlaws. Lets hear your story.

    I had a guy pull a gun on me because he wanted my Mickey Mouse baseball hat in Tijuana when I was in the Navy. It was a sweet hat, so I kind of understood at the time.

    :raises hand:

    Guy tripped me and pulled a knife... got my wallet with $20-$30 and watch. Keep most of my cash in my pocket but I was pissed about the wallet and my drivers license and ATM card. I cancelled the ATM card as soon as I finished calling the duty officer... I had the # in my phone. 3 weeks later, got a call from SDPD saying that they apprehended someone who had my drivers license. Saved me a trip to the DMV.

    Been shot at, not in a robbery but from a dumbass that was trying to be funny. He only aimed near me.

    Had some crazy dude that tried getting in my car at a stop light. he punched the windows until his hand broke then started kicking the window. Miraculously the glass held.

    i've had 3 people pull guns out on me in my lifetime. All 3 were white. Personally i wouldn't divulge this info or even think about it in terms of race. But there is alot of ignorance in this thread, so i'm just throwin it out there.

    Criminality is not constrained by race or even social status. What puts it in better perspective for me is the impact and repurcussions of a rich white guy who fleeces peoples retirement funds.

    Being a victim sucks no matter what color the perp is.

    What decisions you make to deal with the fear and humiliation is on you. Do you choose to become a racist? Do you choose to retaliate criminally yourself like this guy did?

    Every action has reaction, but ultimately after the dust is settled we alone are responsible for our choices.
