    What does agreeing or disagreeing with the preacher have to do with which way one is leaning?

    He has a valid point. And we can include the white kids who feel the need to riot and loot after any city's sports team wins a championship.

    The rioting has nothing to do with the police action and one man but rather an opportunity to loot and trash the city you live in. It is like taking a crap in your own bed.
    So now the city you live in has less stores and less chance of anyone wanting to invest in bringing a business into your city.

    His best line was asking the Black Panthers where were they when the little girl was killed by a stray bullet while riding her tricycle in her front yard .

    It adds to the poll and facilitates discussion. Unless you do not wish so-but then why post?

    Its different from the LA riots we had here, in that instead of targeting Koreans and Whites, it appears blacks are hardest hit here. On top of that, its in black communities where rioting is greatest.

    Will this mans comments be disparaged by some on the left?

    I don't understand what God has to do with it but yeah, as I said... being fed up, which those people in ferguson may be, doesn't give you the right to riot. It gives you the right to protest.

    And as he said about change.
    There are 2 widely known and good examples of black people who are not just examples for black people, but for a lot of people. Thomas Sowell and Neil deGrasse Tyson. They're both well known and make appearances on tv and ofc, the internet. Especially NdGT.

    //I'm not talking about political leaders, like Obama, though Obama would be a good role model for black people. He's calm, he's healthy, he's intelligent and educated... he's a role model as a person.

    You could go to a (several are better) political survey site and if it says you are directly in the center, come back and tell everyone about it.

    Or you could not vote and say something?

    He's a preacher. Agree, about those two. One leans left, the other right but they are both giants in their fields and by my book in society. Neither are victims.

    I don't think NdGT leans left, I think he leans SCIENCE.

    He was actually on Bush's team of experts and he said he likes republicans because they usually give more money to science and R&D than democrats.
