    There should be one for Charles H. Houston, the man who got rid of Jim Crow laws in the conservative South.
    He of course started in the NAACP, going after separate but unequal education in the conservative South .

    The dead thug didn't seem to care about anyones rights when he punched a cop and tried to get his gun-thats how you get killed.

    And Ive already said the protesters are just a bunch of agitators, and deserve punishment.

    Change comes from using the proper legal avenues, not from shutting down malls and trains.

    When does a Black adult become an adult Kal?
    What measure of age or "looks" should we be using?
    18 for going in the service or 21 for buying alcohol and pot where it's legal?

    How about 12-YO boys with toy guns?
    Do they look adult because of the long braids so a rookie cop can shoot him while the veteran cop stays in the car?

    Since you like to compare with Canada John in open forum, his word for this type of action by cops is "pathetic" .

    Since you mention the word pathetic for a petty criminal,
    I'd call unloading your gun on a petty criminal who was unarmed pathetic--wouldn't you Canada John ?
    No, under the circumstances as we know them, I wouldn't. But then I'm a person who believes in personal responsibility whereas modern liberals, like you, believe that someone else is always to blame for the consequences of their actions.

They may sympathize with your aims, but they certainly cannot afford to be denied transportation to their jobs, spending time with their families, and providing meaningful gifts for family and friends. This time is especially valuable to them. Never mind that now. We best deny everyone simple, honest, heart-warming comforts, because our naive political crusades are more important.

    Likewise, because their minds have been poisoned by Henry David Thoreau (who, as any learned liberal would let you know, inspired Gandhi, who in turn inspired MLK), they have seemingly taken being arrested as a badge of honor. Being arrested isn't a badge of honor, and doing things so blatantly against the law so one could get arrested is beyond juvenile behavior. Of course, little be it known that Mr. Thoreau, so privileged be his position in life, that a night in jail was like a damn vacation for him. Oh he thought it was marvelous! He could afford to be bailed out by his auntie and display his privileged position even further by demanding in vain that he stay in jail so he could feel like a man. Ever since then, a good Leftist needs to get thrown into jail to feel like he or she was doing right and standing up for their beliefs.
    I just wanted to tell you that the disdain you and others continue to express for these people feeds my soul.

    Yet the dead thug wasn't dead when he left the car was he?
    And the dead thug you refer to went for the gun because he didn't have one didn't he?

    Which is why the cowardly cop got out of his car and unloaded his gun on a gun-less man right US Conservative?
    All very legal under the Missouri law also .

    Re: Ferguson protesters shut down malls, trains on Black Friday

    So is modern liberal your new phrase Canada John?
    And then directly tell me that I believe someone else is to blame for the consequences of my actions!
    Which is a blatant irrational lie that even you must have had a hard time typing.

    I'm glad to hear that you don't think the cowardly policeman's life was in danger when Brown left the car though .

    90% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the US border so I think it's safe to discuss the issue with them.

    That's just to bad because the cop didn't do anything wrong.
