    The lack of airtime for these stories is actually a big part of the problem for many people. If you head on down to any of the "worst" neighborhoods in Chicago, you'll find that most of the people there are absolutely sick of the violence and would do anything to stop it. Most of them have lost a loved one to it. But it doesn't get airtime except to report that it's happened and that gives the impression that white people in general just don't give a **** about black people.

THAT is an even bigger tragedy. Kids shot on their way to school. Standing on street corners. Playing out in front of their houses. Sitting on their porches. And that goes on every day. Where is the outrage, where are the cameras, where are the Washington politicians, various state governors, movie stars, yada yada yada, over THAT stark reality?
    I'm confused....so are you saying that your "J/S/BCC" are not part of the Black community? Because, if you know anything about Rev Jackson, you know what he is doing for the Black community including multiple efforts to reduce urban crime.

So, do you agree? Moreover, if you answer "yes", do you believe that black men are more "brainwashed" than any other race? And if so, why do you think that black men think less for themselves than other races?
    I picked no.But there are people on both sides of the isle regardless of race who are brainwashed politically.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

I think most people develop much of their worldview initially from the people and things they interact with in childhood - parents, media, friends, etc.. However, I think "brainwashing" is far too strong of a word with implications that would be lost if it applied to something as normal as childhood learning. Moreover, when people get older, they tend to drift from certain aspects of their childhood worldview as they have their own new and different experiences.
    People have no problem with thinking that people in Communist or Muslim countries are brainwashed, but believe that it can't happen here. That illusion of freedom of thought is itself part of the brainwashing.

But I suspect you know that.

    I'm not defending my "all" - statement. I told PlayDrive I was going to edit it to say "many." The edit feature had closed. (I believe...I'm not even sure about that.) Nonetheless, I admitted that was wrong. So shoot me.
    All or most or many makes no substantive difference. You have suggested that black men are more succeptable to brainwashing that others. That is something you will not be able to defend with any evidence.

    You might also want to do some research, since many of the so called leaders of the black community consider black on black violence to be one of if not the biggest issues facing that black community, and there is much work, demonstrations, education etc being done by black people on that very issue(google shows me Protesters to decry black-on-black violence - USATODAY.com for example, that damn brainwashed black man...). I understand the desire to feel superior to some one, but you have not shown any evidence that it is the case here.

    Romney's father lost the Republican nomination because he said he had been brainwashed about Vietnam. Brainwashed people who won't admit it believe that anyone who admits he was brainwashed must be easily manipulated.

    Did you read Blackdog's posts at #43?

    All/many/most makes a huge difference.

    I have not suggested that black men are more susceptible to brainwashing. I'm saying the messages they often get are messages of victimology. We are all products of the good and bad that touches our lives.

    I'll check out your links. Thanks.

    Oh, and your remark about you understand some people want to feel superior to others? I don't understand.

    What do you base this on? Are you a Black man? Do you know a lot of Black men who tell you this? Is it something you have studied? If so, show us what you got.

    This is just as true with whites as it is with blacks, if not moreso.

    The victim mentality has become so prevalent in American culture that most people fail to recognize it, even when they themselves are displaying in it. It's only noticed when others are displaying it on an issue that the person doing the noticing disagrees with.

    Hell, Santorum's entire platform is built upon it.
