    Refusing to see socio-economic class differences means that you refuse to see reality. We are theoretically equal under the law, but even that ideal has not been achieved. A person's socio-economic class determines he quality of the education they receive, even in public schools, and how they will be treated by police and the rest of the justice system. In the private sector there are no legal protections for social classes and class discrimination is standard operating procedure.

    This is called the "victim" mentality, and I can assure you every single person in that mob has it.

    I'm a laughter type of guy. In my personal life. when confronted with something adverse or seemingly dire, my first thought is "uh oh" ( the realization sets in).... m my second thought is "this will make a funny story some day ( always do ); but it seems impossible to see any entertaining stories coming from the state of our nation today.

    c'est la vie

    Celebrate something good today

    People try to use part of a dictionary definition (a colloquial use of the term) to define a concept. Amazing.

    And why do we have this idiocy? Because they want to defend using the term feral in regard to a group of black people. We've explained:

    1. Feral refers to animals, not people.
    2. Feral means once domesticated.
    2a. Presumably, slavery.
    2b. Thus, it's implied slavery was good for black people.

    We've explain it.

    But no, they continue to defend the use of the term in such a manner and they refuse to recognize the meaning of the concept of feral and the implications of using the term in regard to blacks.

    And the same people will tell you there is no systemic racism in the US.

    Anyone... ANYONE... that has the mental capacity and physical capacity (not disabled by mental illness or physical deformity - although a lot of them find success as well) that wants to rise up out of poverty can do just that. There are examples every day from every race and every socioeconomic group (notice I said group, not class). So your premise, is just class warfare at its base. Blame someone else for the personal problems of others, hating the rich or for that matter an entire race because they have some perceived advantage is not the answer to anyone's problems, and DAMN sure not an excuse to act like these kids did.
    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.

    Being poor is no excuse for being a punk. Nobody needs an Ivy League education to know it's inappropriate to mob up and beat people.

    Agreed. I am not excusing anything, I am saying it is wrong to to think that we don't have socio-economic classes in the USA.
