    Wearing socks with sandals is a crime? When did this occur? I am ignorant, I tell you, ignorant. Like Shultzie says "I know nothing." Please don't call the fashion police.

    Of course I know that - just thought I'd toss it out as another example of how you can take and twist someone's words to make them seem racist if that's your goal as opposed to understanding their point of view.

    As for the latter part - yes, we do that, lots - keeps us from needing to run around wantonly assaulting and murdering strangers.

    Do you believe whites are "condemned all over the media"?

If none of that is emphasized at home and in school then they are probably going to rebel against those things at work too.
    A good "drill sergeant" type of boss might be needed. If they opt not to participate, there's always the possibility of prison time in their future. Honest black men as bosses on the job would be a great idea, IMO, if only as role models, which they might need..

    You're claiming the media condemns white people?

    My bees most certainly ARE feral. They were once domesticated and their behavior was manipulated via requeening for gentleness. I have since let them go feral, and raise their own queens, and do their own splits. They now have a nasty temperament, but were gentle about ten years ago. And yes, I know about bees, and if their hive is full, they raise new queens, and one of them leaves with a part of the colony population.

    Yes WASP's. They claim they are racist, bigoted, and homophobic amongst other things.

    Why is this conspiracy committed against white Christians?

    Happy ramblings!
    We've all seen Obama's response to Ferguson. If you haven't it's here - Full Transcript: Obama

    He opens by discussing how he's going to investigate the shooting
    I also want to address the situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Earlier this afternoon, I spoke with Governor Nixon as well as Senators Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill. I also met with Attorney General Eric Holder.

    The Justice Department has opened an independent federal civil rights investigation into the death of Michael Brown. They are on the ground and along with the FBI, they are devoting substantial resources to that investigation.

    The attorney general himself will be travelling to Ferguson on Wednesday to meet with the FBI agents and DOJ personnel conducting the federal criminal investigation and he will receive an update from them on their progress.
    two paragraphs later he gets to the violence
    So, let me close just saying a few words about the tensions there. We have all seen images of protesters and law enforcement in the streets. Itís clear that the vast majority of people are peacefully protesting. Whatís also clear is that a small minority of individuals are not.

    While I understand the passions and the anger that arise over the death of Michael Brown, giving into that anger by looting or carrying guns, and even attacking the police only serves to raise tensions and stir chaos. It undermines rather than advancing justice.
    That's hardly a condemnation of bad behavior. It's more of an apology that there are some bad apples in the barrel. Then, after about as half hearted a "condemnation" as you can get he starts in on encouraging further protest!
    Let me also be clear that our constitutional rights to speak freely, to assemble, and to report in the press must be vigilantly safeguarded: especially in moments like these. Thereís no excuse for excessive force by police or any action that denies people the right to protest peacefully.

    Ours is a nation of laws: of citizens who live under them and for the citizens who enforce them. So, to a community in Ferguson that is rightly hurting and looking for answers, let me call once again for us to seek some understanding rather than simply holler at each other. Letís seek to heal rather than to wound each other.
    And how does he wrap it up?
    Iíve said this before. In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement. In too many communities, too many young men of color are left behind and seen only as objects of fear. And through initiatives like My Brotherís Keeper, Iím personally committed to changing both perception and reality. And already, weíre making some significant progress, as people of good will of all races are ready to chip in. But that requires that we build, and not tear down. And that requires we listen, and not just shout. Thatís how weíre going to move forward together -- by trying to unite each other and understand each other, and not simply divide ourselves from one another. Weíre going to have to hold tight to those values in the days ahead. And thatís how we bring about justice, and thatís how we bring about peace.
    He blames society for the mistrust and pushes his own program!! The guy is a damned hustler, not a healer.
