"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
The next thing the defense will be saying is that 'They are only being prosecuted because they are young black men, and that they justice system is broken, and that they should be thanked for getting a dealer off the streets instead of being sent to jail..'
They will cry racism.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

That's a diversion. The mlk era? LMAO...that was a long time ago and they've done a lot to damage their credibility since then..but I understand having to reach so far back to try to rationalize.
You think only fox calls them that and anyone who agrees is a parrot and unable to think for themselves...got it.
Google "race hustler".
Why would you defend a convicted liar and fraud, anyway...is it because he says things you like to hear?
Well its an improvement you are not fan of sharpy or jackson. Its not enough though. We, as a society, need the people who follow them to reject their hatred. Zimmerman was a great example, a case that had nothing to do with race, and they made it one about race. The faster the African American community rejects these bigots and embraces the culture of our nation and leaders like Crosby, Alan West and many others and become partners in society instead of victims of society (so they are taught) the sooner we can all feel like races are getting along.
"What difference" "does it make?"
