    I'm asking why you qualified rural as white.

    You do not have the "right" to force whatever speech you wish on your employer. They hired you to work, during working hours, they can tell you to shut up as a condition of employment. If that is unacceptable to you, you are free to quit.

    Apples and lug nuts. If these players had disrupted the game by walking around protesting it would be one thing. What they did was nothing of the sort.

    The thread is about a bunch of NFL players holding their hands in the air before a game.

    I'll make a guess that your prediction is accurate and there will be fines and/or suspensions handed down. The NFL has to stick to football and avoid any and all political statements. It could become a free for all if it doesn't.

    I'd love to see players come out in protest of puppy mills but I also understand that they simply can't. They're there to play football and not play politics.

    I need more than the NAACP.

    That said, I agree, cops tend to look at black people differently, including other black cops. Why?

    As far as your other points - I agree 100% with you that glorification of the thug liefstyle is terrible and must stop as it hurts black kids and handicaps them in American life.

    I agree with your point that branding certain behaviors as "acting white" must also stop as it hurts black kids and handicaps them in American life.

    I agree with you that slavery and the break up of the black family established a pattern that hurts black families today.

    I even agree with you that an over reliance on welfare for too long a time has also hurt black families handicapping some in American life today. Sadly, welfare and handouts was looked at by some as cheaper than actual rehabilitation and job training so it was viewed by some on both sides of the aisle as the easier or at least the cheaper alternative in the short run.

    So given these items, return to your first. If the justice system is stacked against african americans, how does this all play into it?


    Welcome back Rev. I missed some of the knock down drag outs from the past.

    Thanks.
