‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
I've dealt with lots of parents like that. "My child is good, he never lies, he was just led astray by bad boys, oh, he would never do anything like that, you're just making it up, let's hear his side of the story, etc.,etc,.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
the only racism involved is from a few board members who attempt to frame any incident where the participants were of different ethnicities as racially motivated
is there anything to suggest the victim would not have been beaten for ratting them out if he had been black? if not, then this is not a racial incident
looks like faux news is coaching the wannabe racists, positing that civil rights groups should involve themselves in a matter which has no racial basisThe brutal incident made national headlines, in part because video of the attack captured on the bus’ surveillance camera went viral online. It also prompted critics to question why civil rights leaders did not speak up about the assault.

I really cannot judge him one way or the other on the quote. My parents were the same people who raised both straight A students and kids who were holy terrors. What went on behind closed doors to try to get the holy terrors to not be that way was no lack of effort on their part. There are just limits to how much parents can do, especially with kids are who easily swayed by peer pressure or are inclined to be rebellious no matter how you punish them or how often.
