    My boss is black, He hired me, and he can fire me anytime he likes. I guess he's lucky.


    My guess is that he's an excellent worker.

    It takes a lot more than luck to get to the top. Especially if your skin is black.

    Fill us in.

    If I may be of help, "racism" has nothing to do with power. Hate is an equal opportunity employer.

    SAN ANTONIO TEXAS (one of the largest cities in America) and probably LA are run by Hispanics.

    Let's see...who runs the USA?

    There is the executive branch, which carries out the legal end as dictated by congress.

    That executive branch is headed by Barrack Hussein Obama, who does, I believe self identify as black. His top cop is a black activist and much of his cabinet is black [interesting there are no Asians] and a good chunk of congress self identifies as black.

    Yes. The Whites have ALL the power.

    That could be a little difficult to prove. It doesn't appear that Wilson ever had any charges of racism or civil rights violations filed against him in 8 years as a police officer.

    Hopefully what the end result of this investigation will be is the replacement of the 50 white officers on the force with 50 minorities/black officers. Then the problem will be gone.
    And that should be done because blacks make better cops or because white cops are all prejudiced against blacks?

    I don't know how many times I have been cuffed and heard the words: "you're not under arrest, you're just being detained." - really for what? walking down the damn street?

    Race plays no roll here either - it's just a bunch of punk cops looking to bust balls..

    Then they call me a punk for not answering every irrelevant question they have. A) they have no right to even question me, B) they have no probable cause to even question me, C) they have no right to search me given both A & B and D) they're just trying to be tough ass bitches.

    Of course the powers that be allow these clowns to act this way.


    I am a virtual libertarian when it comes to cops, but I would suggest that anyone strolling in an American city at one or two in the morning NEEDS to be assessed. The fact the United States has more guns than people, the highest crime and murder rates in the industrialized world simply begs for a police interdiction.

    The fact you guys seem to prefer overgrown sadistic bullies as cops is subject for another time

    Sorry, but your argument is unsound, no one race "runs the country"....

    You're obviously not a libertarian then...

    I don't actually live in Chicago (even if I did what would that matter)... Also the town I live in has had (I believe) one murder in the last 3 years.

    Furthermore I could care less if there were 100 murders - that still doesn't give the cops the RIGHT to shake me down when I'm doing nothing more than walking down the street.

    I know my damn rights..... And I know cops alleged "rights" er tyranny.

    You actually know squat about me and to make that call in the opening sentence demonstrates a firmly closed mind.
