    Very true. Well said. The extremists rarely think they are extreme. That's part of what makes them extreme, the self-righteous thought that they are right, and everyone else is wrong.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Re: More than 100 teens swarm Memphis plaza, 'knocking out' shoppers

    Wasn't it just earlier this year we had posters denying such a game exists? Maybe I'm wrong.... either way don't care about the color of their skin. Round them up, arrest them, charge them all to the fullest extent of the law. If this continues to happen in places, I'd even encourage police to create a rapid response team which would first create a perimeter around the event then go in an arrest as many as possible by putting together surveillance video, eye witnesses, and confessions.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The true believers always think they are fighting the good fight, and pretty much anything can be seen as virtuous when all that is needed to make it so is an agreement that it is virtue.

    I going to reply to your post and I have not read the link, but you said pink elephant, and I did read the "teens play knockout" so I am to bet they are black. Now I will read it.

    I would hope the outrage would be just as great, but in the not too distant past, like now in some cities.
    What goes on in minority neighborhoods, involving only the minorities in that area, seems to be treated different.
    It seems it only leads the news, when it leaves the neighborhood.
    Overt Violence should not be tolerated regardless of race of the victim.

Instead of discussing the problem, they say things like "no one accepts this" or "no one condones this" or some other half hearted deflection so that they put it to bed and don't have to actually discuss the problem, as if saying "this is bad" is enough.

    The largest problem with this related to race, as I said previously, is the problem that race somehow prevents us from discussing these actions and prevents us from taking them on in a way that would change the culture. We can't discuss it unless we are of the same race as the perpetrators, which is ludicrous. If we try, we are called racists, just as Lutherf was basically accused of being when he spoke truth to action.

    But, let the apologists and deflectors talk their talk. It makes it easier to pin blame when they self identify.
    But people / posters have tried over and over to discuss the under lying issues of Race and Violence on these and other forums.

    But that isn't the whole story.

    The rate at which Blacks Assault Blacks, is far higher than the Rate that ALL other Racial groups Assault Blacks, COMBINED!


    Shouldn't these official FBI crime statistics, and the story they tell, come into our narrative on the Ferguson situation?

    Doesn't the threat of this kind of violence, which the police have to deal with daily, affect the nature of the wariness and response of police officers everywhere?

    Should White Americans start holding themselves much more On-Guard and Wary around Black Americans?

    Isn't it time that we stop creating the sense of Entitlement to "Social-Justice-Reprisal-Violence" generated by the special protections, preferential treatment, and racial manipulation propaganda created by Affirmative Action?


    Isn't it time for the 45 years of Racial Preference Insanity to END!?

    I had to make what was basically that same thread three times, before the censors stopped throwing it into the sewer!

    It not that people didn't want to discuss it, they were only allowed to discuss it in the Sewer.

    I still hold the the Sociology concept that Racial Preferences provided by the Official Government serve as an excuse and indictment against the non-prefered to justify "a sense of Entitlement to "Social-Justice-Reprisal-Violence" .

    Whatever good Affirmative Action might have once done, today, it is a nasty and divisive political weapon, and a disruptive force on our society.

    It is well past time for all types of Affirmative Action to END.

    Ending AA doesn't mean that the Government should not go right on providing opportunities for youth based on criteria other than RACE.

    If the majority of that aid ( but very importantly, not ALL), selected by merit and need criteria, goes to Minorities, so?

    Programs like Affirmative Action, when used as a punitive tool, have harmed our country. Especially when programs like these do exactly what you stated - create "a sense of Entitlement to "Social-Justice-Reprisal-Violence"".

    However, that is just one part of the problem and only a small part of the overall answer.

    None of which will be given a fair hearing here or anywhere else due to political correctness and fear of being tagged with some unfounded label. Although, the other side to this is the fact that some WILL use the opportunity to condemn an entire race for the actions of a subculture. That subculture was created by and is currently fed by the political power that it garners though condemnation of other races and their perceived race-wide culture - which is irony at its most vivid pinnacle.

    We have to focus on the culture, not the race. If the culture exists in multiple races (which it does) but stems mostly from one race (which it does), then we cannot allow ourselves to focus on race due to the destabilizing effect that race brings to any discussion. We must focus on what created and what is fueling the culture. To focus on race, only allows people to dismiss the problem as if it is something tangential to reality and only exists in the minds of racists - which is far from true.

    I just heard Eric Holder is on his way to the scene as we speak. He said he's going to find out who/what prompted these black teens to attack and when he does, They will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. President Obama also said that by all the info the Whitehouse has gathered this
    was a "gentle mob" and surely they were provoked into such righteous beatdowns!

    And sometimes idealist, those that are wrong, (like, imho, those who support AA) get hit with disillusioning reality, hard!

    And sometimes, they turn out to be the leaders of needed change.

    This is not new to the human condition.
