    Can't blame the cops for doing their jobs.

    Can't really blame Tyler Perry for the natural psychological consequences of generations worth of racism either.

    We are basically only 40 years from black people finally being treated as equals in this country. I don't think it's all that unexpected or unreasonable for black people to continue to be a little paranoid about it. Rather than attacking Perry, people should point out in a reasoned manner why this was not an incident of racial profiling.

    No the concept that you offer up nothing but excuses, but we all know what excuses are like.

    No. People should attack Perry.

    Its time black society put that **** to rest unless they can show some evidence besides the famous "I JUST KNOW!!!!!"
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Spoken like a 50s cop from North Carolina.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    This type of attitude is only likely to exacerbate the problem.

    Nah... get it out in the open and let's discuss it. Shoving it in a box and throwing it in the back of the closet doesn't help.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I don't think that's what I recommended, and I agree. It's just the way that it is discussed that needs to be altered.

    I offered up excuses when suggesting that the OP doesn't have all the facts? You guys are quite a lovely pair.

    It's amusing that you think you have a legitimate claim to tell "black society" what to do. What are you gonna do if blacks don't offer any other explanation to you? Type in capital letters?

    Yep, that attitude is one of the main contributors to racial tension in modern America. If you tell blacks to put their thoughts to rest or when you minimize a problem others feel is real, you just increase tension and increase many peoples' resistance to civil dialogue and openness.
