    I don't buy that for a minute. A 16 year old kid today is 150 years removed from slavery and at least two generations removed from the bulk of the Jim Crow era.

    Well you have seen them looting. The bankers, hedge fund managers and the like looted more than most people in America. You were here, you saw it happen. No, they didn't burn any buildings, they stole them.

    Oh I knew that would be your response when I wrote it, but easy for you to say. And they aren't 150 years away from being told to ride in the back of the bus or use the toilet out back. Thankfully you don't have a clue what it would be like to live under such treatment. And btw, don't ignore the fact that I pointed out that I hold it as no excuse for criminal behaviour.

    Here's my issue with all that. Over the years a whole lot of blacks have grown up in crappy conditions and become quite successful. Those people went through the same crap that the ones playing the victim game went through but, for some reason, they managed to succeed. If that's the case then it isn't the "back of the bus" crap that caused the problems we're seeing. It's BELIEVING that crap and, in a lot of cases, PERPETUATING that crap.

    Like I said, easy for you to say, but everybody is different, some people were treated worse than others some people's parents and grandparents have more horrific stories and bitterness to pass on than others. You shouldn't deny that bitterness still lingers from the past treatment of blacks in this country. But Lutherf, I didn't want to sidetrack this into a discussion away from the thread topic, sorry for that.

    The erosion of the fabric of the black community by the Liberal agenda is the reason for this.

    Want to say that a little differently? Or did you mean to blame these black people's bad behaviour on liberals?

    No, sorry, I don't work for a bank and I don't work with hedge fund managers, so I never saw that, nor do I know anyone who was looted by them (including myself).

    But of course, this is entirely off topic, isn't it Risky? Or did I stumble into the wrong thread. I thought we were discussing the protests in Missouri.
