    Inquiry into 'racist' police head

    These continued accusations regarding Racism on any matter relating to Black persons will continue until Black and White people realize that they are just people.

    Having special treatment for Black or Hispanic or for that matter any person who is not Caucasian is in itself self defeating for those who seek equality.

    Could not agree more. Here in the US I am still waiting for the government to let minority's stand on their own two feet rather than suckle the government tit, or get preferential treatment.

    Hate laws, affirmative action etc all needs to go away, like yesterday.

    Having grown up in a small town in southern California with Native Americans, Mexicans, and blacks it was clear and even strange that all the racism came not from the white people but the minorities. It was as if they were tha only ones aware they were a minority and would always site their differences when it was clear it had nothing what ever to do with what ever the situation was. The only racism I saw was toward the Japanese from WWII vets who without exception referred to them as damn Japs. I was in school learning geography when I learned they were Japanese from Japan.
    It was always hard to understand the mindset and racism of southern Democrats before the major changes that came in the 60s until I married into a family from Mississippi and began to visit there seeing that even in the 80s racism was alive and well. Today I see a great deal of racism in and around all of Los Angeles and the vast majority of comes from massive amount of illegal aliens who are also in every business in some areas of Orange County as well and do not even speak English and become indignant if you you don't speak Mexican.
    I think that majority of problems come from people who were taught that everyone is out to get them so they are owed something for nothing. And the cop an attitude at the drop of a hat without good cause and the next thing you know it escalates to a point someone goes to jail like that Gates guy who thought he didn't have to simply cooperate with a simple request and nothing would have happened.

    I would agree with you to a point. Racism has NEVER been exclusively white....it runs across all ethnicities. Even amongst ethnicities themselves. I know Blacks that speak lowly about other Blacks because they are "darker".

    However, when things like the Gates situation arise, it shows how far we as a country have yet to go.

    Comply with a simple request? The man did.

    The situation displayed clear inherent racism that exists in police forces around the country.

    she discriminated against black officers and did not carry out duties properly.
    If true, she should be relieved of her job. I do not want someone racist or not doing their duties near the top in police.
