This guy survived World War II, only to be beaten to death in the parking lot, while waiting to escort a friend so she wouldn't have to walk alone.
    I know what you mean, but this one pushed my emotional button.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Can you not debate the point rather than using this tired response? Is the man right or is he wrong?

    So he is wrong because you have done an African American studies course? I've always been suspicious that these thing were bunk, and excuses for victimhood and anti social behavior. You proved it.

    My point was that understanding is just a first step; the next step requires ACTION. And I firmly believe it is going to have to come from within the black community before there is real positive change. It's going to have to start with the unpleasant recognition that a lot of the woes of the black community are self-inflicted at this point, that if you can't make it today it isn't Whitey's fault anymore, and that this worship of thug culture and disdain for education and conventional success among many is going to have to cease.

    I wish I KNEW some way to help make those things happen... but I'm more-or-less white and most black folks do not want to hear that stuff from me. It's going to have to start from within.
    Change does have to come from the black community itself, and this is what William Raspberry was saying in his 1988 WaPo article "Black America's House Is on Fire." Walter E. Williams, whom I just love, says the same now: Black Self-Sabotage by Walter E. Williams on Creators.com - A Syndicate Of Talent

    It's not "American" history. It's a fragment of American history which was supported by one political party and fought against by another American party. Americans were less involved in the claim you made earlier than you might believe but, in any case, the Civil War was fought long ago and the hair shirts should finally be removed.

    And the great Thomas Sowell also has a lot to say on the subject. This is his most recent, I believe. Who Is Racist? - Thomas Sowell - Page full

    I find it more than just a little ironic that a large number of people in this thread are using this particular crime to make political points. Everything from the "crisis" of the "black" community to pushing for more concealed carrying permits and on to enlarging and hastening the death penalty. I have heard aruments using this case as proof that racial profiling should be used and used more. There are those arguing how black leaders need to change the black community. There are those arguing for quicker/more dramatic use of the death penalty and increased use of police powers to combat this sort of thing. I would ask those making these arguments to remember this the next time there is a mass shooting and not make the argument how the gun control liberals are using a tragedy to make a political point.

    The second thing I would ask everyone here is that if this is proof that the black community is in crisis and black leaders need to take action then what about the white community. It is fact that the vast majority of mass shootings are commited by whites and white men in specific. Is the white male community in crisis? What about allowing the police to profile white males in order to prevent more mass shootings? What are white leaders doing to address the crisis among white men?

    Are you actually denying that there are problems within the African American community? Continually making them into victims isn't helping them at all you know.
