    You actually believe that anyone and everyone that leans to the right is a racist?

    Do you even know the correct literal definition of racism?

    You certainly read a whole lot into this statement. I made no comments whatsoever about racism or anyone being racist in this post. Where did you come up with that?

    You remarked:

    To which I responded:

    I was responding very narrowly to your anaology. I was only remarking that the KKK and Nazis are extremist groups (perversions of the politics of the right) and "a fight between them would cause confusion as to which side one would root (for anyone... right or left).... I said nothing more.

    Good debate is about arguing with what is written; not with your impressions of what is written (using your imagination to fill in blanks)... I am precise with what I write; please respond only to what is said.

    If, by chance, you were responding to my other post on this thread (in which case you failed to be particularly precise in response), I can see how you might misinterpret that as accusing a large group of people of being racist. I actually was not do so as I was accusing a population of not understanding the issue of Ferguson and thus denying that racism is alive and well in America.

    If must know, I do believe we have far too many racists in this country and racism is far more prevalent than most acknowledge. I think the fact that far too many people do not understand the core issue of Ferguson (why people are protesting) is because far too many people do not understand racism and far too many are afflicted with it and do not know it.

    Authorities responded to a call for an officer shot in north St. Louis County late Saturday night.

    St. Louis County Police confirm to News 4 a Ferguson police officer has been shot. A police staging area has been set-up around the area of West Florissant and Stein. Multiple police departments are responding to the scene.

    The officer was shot in the arm. The condition of the officer was not released.

    Protesters have been saying this was going to happen.
    What exactly would you like to debate here?
