    When you're right, you're right.


    he did?


    when was he convicted?

    The people to blame for racism are the people that refuse to stop looking at people as different 'races' just because of the melanin in their skin; and just looked upon everyone as people that happen to have darker/lighter complexion...it's just a physical characteristic, like height or weight or hair color.

    Why can 'black' people not just be looked upon as dark skinned instead of attributing an entirely different 'race' to people with that physical characteristic?

    We don't we call tall people a different race? Or blonde people? Or people with big noses?

    Why skin color (melanin content)?


    It's devisive and childish to do so, IMO.

    Calling someone an entirely different 'race' strictly because they have more or less melanin in their skin is asinine in the extremis, IMO.
    And I do not care if it is in the dictionary...it is still asinine to me.
    A lot to agree with there...

    However talking would be fine if it were talking. But this is a complex web of sub-issues super charged by the killing, and fueled by the continued assertions of fact that are not in evidence.

    There is no proof here of anything, what is known is that a black kid was shot under suspicious and conflicting circumstances.

    But one side continues to insist the kid was a "criminal" even though no charges have been laid, constantly claims he had a record, as if that is proof he caused the shooting and one and on.

    The other side, lacking the facts and dealing with an obviously militant police force - senior officers saying the rioters should be shot "like dogs" is NOT conducive to brining calm.

    All I can fault the demonstrators for is bringing violence into the equation which would have been made unnecessary had the governor or the mayor called an independent inquiry and let the evidence tell the story.

    As it is you have a trail of misleading information founded on distrust...it will not go away any time soon so long as there are only two sides and no referee.

    They could quickly determine it's British Jihadist who beheaded Foley. They could even know his name is John though the killer having a head cover all the time. Within hours when MH17 was shot down in Ukraine, they could quickly judge it was down by Russian's Buk misslie and waged a propaganda wave. Consider both were in enemy's fields. Compare with Ferguson case, it is American's land and you have witness and everything you needed, yet they couldn't reach a conclusion so far. Why? Because the two cases were in their plan while Ferguson case was an accident one.

    Anyone who thinks that there's no racism and no racial division in the USA could learn a lot in Ferguson, Mo.

    But they'd have to keep their eyes, ears and minds open.




    I predict that some people in the USA will learn nothing from the Ferguson tragedy and similar events because they have their eyes, ears and minds closed.
    You're right...the Libbos won't learn a damn thing.

    You seem certain that Wilson is guilty of murder. When was he convicted?

    My guess is that some people on the left and right will learn nothing from Ferguson and others will learn a lot.
