    And this statement from you does not even approach the logic of using that flag.

    Yes it does. It says very loudly that you do not know what you are talking about and its all double talk and has less utilitarian value than a bag of manure.

    But then , what else is new?

    I don't know what TV and other media you're exposed to but from where I sit I see the very opposite process - media is making blacks into brilliant surgeons, chiefs of staff of surgical units, wise police chiefs, learned judges, brilliant defense lawyers, etc. That is the all-pervasive media message.

    Can't let this slide.....

    You have a kid that shows up to school wearing a Mohawk haircut that's been dyed green. No big deal right? Kids will be kids and all of that. Except for the fact that by allowing that sort of behavior at school, you've told him and everyone else that it's "normal" and by normalizing that admittedly harmless behavior now it seems reasonable to show up at say, ...a job interview with the same look. So by allowing a counter culture haircut, in effect you've maybe set that kid up for failure later in life.

    the implication from your criticism being obvious - that there simply are no black surgeons, no black chief os staffs of surgical units, no black police chiefs who are wise, no black learned judges, no black brilliant defense lawyers, etc.

    Do ever tire of this garbage?

    And that is not a serious question.

    I taught kids for 33 years. I learned its far more important what is inside a kids had than what is on top of it. But thats just me I suppose.

    Pity you can't answer the question though. Instead, you attack the questioner and portray yourself as the martyr. Looks like political lockstep with the left to me.

    Different stereotypes apply to women than to men.


    More black US men 'in jail than college'

    There are more black men in jail in the United States than there are in higher education, a new study has found.

    The report, by the Washington-based Justice Policy Institute, says the number of black men behind bars has grown by more than five times in the past 20 years.

    According to the study, there were 791,600 black men imprisoned in America in the year 2000, compared to 603,032 enrolled in college or university.

    That's only one side of the coin.
