Driving home in uptown Dallas, two African American kids walked in front of my car and came to a complete stop. They were just staring me down and I didn't react. Just looked at my phone as they very slowly got off the street.

I go up to my apartment and look out the window, and see a woman's car got shot up, thankfully they missed her.

I went down and gave the police a statement, the woman was around 65 years old, didn't look like she'd hurt a fly. She honked at the kids to get off the street and they unloaded on her car and ran off.

I'm genuinely scared for the future of our country, I will be going to get a gun within the next week.

Sorry to hear that but not surprised. I have long had guns but will not carry. I am signing me and the little lady up for self defence classes. It will be interesting to watch all of Ms TTU's 110 lbs turned into a weapon.

That sucks Baller. Glad you're Okay though.

Were you in a hood area by chance, or was this is in a more "normal" area of Dallas? Sorry, I don't know Dallas that well.

He was in a very nice area near downtown that is predominately white.

There is no question in my mind that there was a racial motivation for their chosen location.

You're right, no need to be said. It should easily be assumed.

I'd say it's a pretty relevant detail considering recent events.

Stating the race of the aggressors in a racially motivated incident is racist?

You are some kinda dip****

It's a descriptive term. If they were white I would have said they were white.

Let's be honest here, race is a factor in America right now.

Glad you're OK!

This makes me want to get a dash cam as well. Can you imagine the ****storm if they had shot up your car and you shot back and killed one or both of them defending yourself?

Did they stand in front of the car while shooting?

I'd think that would make them a good target for plowing over in self defense.

These days, I don't think I'd want to live in any big city without a dash cam.

W/o dash cam the claim would be that you targeted while they were walking to school and they only shot in self defense.

I'm not going to lie that's effing terrifying to think about. These guys were obviously out there waiting to shoot someone or someone's car over this. Why else were they walking slowly in front of OPs car then did it again in front of an old lady? Especially in a upper class part of town that's more than likely predominantly white. You know they would've done it to ANYONE who would've honked at them or whatever. Thinking about the scenario of me with my family in the car and this happens they could have easily taken some child's parents away all because they're no good thugs thinking they can do it and get away with it because of this BLM bulls***.. This country is seriously going to crapper faster and faster everyday thanks to people in higher powers.

Agree with you. Why is race a factor? I'll posit two reasons:

1. Democratic policies that undermine the black populace family unit that started in the 60's under LBJ. In effect, those policies keep blacks enslaved.
2. Obama plays to race-bating, divisive politics.

This is as bad as I can remember things being, and that includes when blacks were integrated into predominately white schools.

I have been on the fence about getting a decent dash cam. I think the OP might have just pushed me over that fence.

No I dont expect this stuff to happen to me. But thinking it CAN'T happen is so damn naive.

Having dash cam footage could help protect me in court and if I am killed can help catch those that did it.
