93 percent of Blacks were killed by people who shared their race. (U.S. bureau
of Justice) It would make more sense for the Black community to dwell on the 93%
than the 7%.
Hmm?Is it possible that more blacks, kill blacks, then whites do?Is it possible that more blacks kill whites, then whites killing
blacks?Is it possible, in the past fifty years, that white people
have done more for black people then any other race in history?Do
black people in this country have a higher standard of living then those in
Africa?Cognitive thinking is missing!
It's not hurt feelings that's the issue here. It's staying alive.
@worfSo I am going to give you the benifit of the doubt that you
just did not read my entire post rather then deliberately misrepresenting my
comment. From my above post "Having said that I do think people need to wait
for the investigations which have been started to conclude before condemning
All through history, groups of people have had their struggle. On
the positive side, white people have done more for the black people than any
race of people has for another.Do the research. Thousands have died
for their freedom.Time to move forward, and not dwell on hurt
How come Obama doesn't speak about the illegals that killed the white
border patrol? Where is the common thread of justice? It's always about the
black guy with him. He has caused a wide division in this country. If this had
been a white man, we would have never heard about it.We need to be
patient and let all the facts come out before people pass judgment!
Why, because white privilege is what our country was founded upon: Slavery,
Forced Segregation, Jim Crow, etc. Racism is still very prevalent in the US
today and police brutality, racial profiling are still problems. The majority
can't be left to police themselves that's been proven. It doesn't
matter who is in the White House, these incidents should be looked into by the
Federal Government. 63% of Ferguson is black, 50 of 53 police white,
86% of all traffic stops black, 92% of all arrests black.Are things
better then the 1960's, probably, but we have a long way to go as a country
to ensure all men are treated equally?
@Tolstoy,People are so quick jumping to conclusion.Very
seldom do we ever get an accurate report on anything!Neither you, or
myself really know what happened, and we haven't heard from the police
officer.You can justify the protests, and damage being made, but
I'm holding back.
Why is it the black & Hispanic community goes nuts every time something like
this happens? How can they justify committing crimes, while protesting a crime?
It boils down to this is an opportunity to steal and plunder while there is
civil disobedience. If you get caught, you play the race card. But, now that we
are a nation of minorities including whites; you can't play that card
anymore.I think there a genuine people in the group that are looking
for the truth and want to do it peacefully. However, a good number of these
folks come in just to stir things up.Where was Obama when Tea Party
members were being threatened by the Justice Department and the IRS? Why
didn't he step in and tell is staff to back off and that the Tea Party has
freedom of speech?No matter what you think of Bush. One thing
President Bush did, is accept criticism and allowed people to express their
opinions and thoughts about him. Regardless of their position. If you say
anything about barack, the regime comes down on and tries to silence you through
threats and strong arm. The Chicago way.
@worfright because acts of violence by criminals is the same as a
police related shooting. Criminals are just that were as police officers are
entrusted with the publics safety, not hardly the same thing. Having said that I
do think people need to wait for the investigations which have been started to
conclude before condemning this officer
what bothers me about this is the pattern with the Obama / Holder administration
that seems to point to "special" treatment of blacks compared to
non-blacks in America. Every time a black man is killed Eric Holder jumps into
the middle of it looking and searching for some form of racism and if none exits
then he invents it. This has been the worst period of government heavy handed
tactics I can ever remember and all for race sake. If this kid would have been
white there would be no government intervention - zero. How disgusting and sad.
So glad when this Obama period is over.
Eighty people shot in Chicago over one weekend, but one in Ferguson brings out
this kind of outcry?Seems like a set up for violence.
