    So can I assume you are posting from Ferguson?

    I'm starting to think that race just shouldn't be provided in criminal cases anymore. Too many racists out there, on both sides, making presumptions simply based on the color of the individuals involved.
    Or... about 100 people. Not even enough for some productive rioting and looting.

    But anyway, nice to see that your usual response is to attack the poster rather than let your thoughts on the subject stand to be debated.
    Did I attack you? I did point out that you're playing the victim. Which should be obvious to anybody who honestly reads your post.

    So the existing power structure, all down the line is black? Police chiefs across the nation, all black now? Are you trying to play the, "Well the President is black, therefore it's all good now" card? Nice to see that you're following your usual response of pathetic excuses.

    No, you don't understand. This makes what happened in Ferguson completely OK. Just like Mugabe makes the fact that there used to be Jim Crow laws perfectly acceptable.

    Yes you did attack me personally, but not to worry, I have a thick skin. And I am not trying to play the victim anymore than the Brown defenders in the other threads do. I started out saying how predictable the responses to this thread would be by the very same people in those other threads calling for the head of the officer, yet in here so far, we get them making excuses for the black officer and attacking me for posting it.

    Bravo, you're right on que rocket.

    I fully understand why you're upset about the lack of reporting on the death of the White men and the clear racial attack of the elderly White woman. You hear all the media reports of young Black male teens being killed by cops or White people being harassed by Black teens or killed by Black cops and you wonder "where's the fairness and justice" being shown to Blacks when these same crimes are happening to Whites. Believe me, as a Black man, I understand your frustration here. But as I've said to other posters here who have identified themselves as White, the reason there doesn't seem to be much outrage over such stories is because historically Whites haven't been mistreated and oppressed in this country in the ways Black and other minorities have for as long as they have. Culturally speaking, the wounds are deeper when it's a Black person or a Black community that is perceived to have been unjustly treated and the media makes sure the nation sees the gaping wholes. Unfortunately, the absence of such storylines also prove to reflect a purposeful disparity in White people can also be mistreated.

    None of this justifies the lack of reporting/lack of attention of such cruelty. But hopefully this sheds some light on why much of it never makes the national news. That leads me to why you won't see Pres. Obama speak out on such matters. IMHO, contrary to what many would like to believe, I don't think he purposefully selects what racial shooting he'll hold a press conference on. Remember: It's the national storyline that affects the entire country that brings him before the podium. I'm sure if the country became riveted by the brutal, senseless killing of a White kid by a Black cop or a Black gang, he'd speak out about that, too. But until such killings make the national headlines - CNN, FOX, NYTimes, Washington Times/Post, etc., etc., you likely won't hear him talk about it. Not defending him; just telling it like it is. You can blame the media for that, though. No the President.
    To a large extent I agree with you here. With that said, tell me just how many generations removed is acceptable to shirk personal responsibility in these matters? 1?, 3?, 10?, never?

    And believe me when I say that I am not addressing that to anyone particular, but everyone. As for Obama, I am sure you'd agree that the passing of Margaret Thatcher was an event that touched every corner of America as well, how many officials did he send there? Why didn't HE attend? He should have.

    So it just sounds a little like excuse making to me.

    If you use the technical definition that requires things like power structure and usually government backing, it is basically impossible because black people are not the power structure.

    As far as the race baiting goes, you can either get your own race baiting whites to go do that, or you can bitch and moan about Rev. Al. I know which you'll choose to do, because only one of them lets you be the victim.
    That is one helluva pantload.

    Testimony? You have reports under oath?
