The ugly side of humanity: Pregnant Boost Mobile clerk gets punched in a robbery

With thousands of locations dotting the country from coast to coast, brick and mortar stores belonging to the nation's wireless carriers have been the target of robberies before. Usually, the thieves wait for the store to close, and then break the glass door or window for access to phones that are on display. But in the case of a Boost Mobile store in Pensacola, Florida, the robber took a different, more violent approach...

1. Why was a pregnant female working alone ina retail location 2. I would fly to Florida and dismantle this guy's limbs and flanges over a 48 hour period... They can keep the $1000

Since she was calling for someone, thinking that person would hear that. You could assume she wasn't working alone and the other one was just in the back or something.

And do what? Get kicked in the stomach and risk her baby for a few lousy bucks that might not even be hers?

Dude. Weak. Like... DUDE! You did not just say that. RebelwithoutaClue has a point there and if you ask me, someone who does not live in America, I'd pick the future of a child over chump change.

It's not completely about race. Those black people wanted freedom for commit crimes, they got their freedom, now can they use their freedom. It is how they want to act and they wanted to act that way. I think here is a problem with African Americans and Africans. African American are the ones born in the America. Africans are the ones came to American from Africa. Lots of people from Africa are friendly, and being nice, since they don't want to get problems here. Some Africans in my I seen here usually act nice. But those blacks people born in US here are very messy, especially those grown up kids, like high school kids. They make trouble for fun, join fights, damage things, say bad words. That's how they want to act. That is their culture.

Like I said, the color of the skin isn't important. It's the country..

"PREGNANT???" Speak of humanity. There are some words that are not supposed to be used when addressing issues. How about "Expectant mother?"

Websites use click bait like race, politics and sex because it works reliably. Post an article about Hillary Clinton having sex with a black female Republican and you'll get traffic the likes of which this site has never seen.

Looking at some of these comments it seems racism is alive and well in the US. These are the same people who can't fathom why Black people scream racism.
