    I would think "little person" would be an insult. But it's white liberals today who decide what words we are allowed to use and not use.

    The Little People decided. Midget is a derogatory term with insinuations they want nothing to do with. Do you still call Inuits Eskimos?

    Referring to a people as they refer to themselves, and not inventing a name for them based on prejudice, is basic human decency.

    How about the Nipponese aka Nips. The PC term is Japanese. Have you ever been to Nippon ?

    Is it true the White House sent no one to General Harold Greene's

    Didn't Chuck Hagel go?
    Be skeptical of anyone who wears a political label - party or ideology - with pride. Most of our problems are because people love to "debate" (it isn't debate, but they pretend it is), but are not interested in developing solutions. Solutions require empathy, thought, and compromise, and most folks aren't interested.

    How many times do people like the OP have to be blatantly shown their fantastic failings to make them reconsider their positions?

    I mean, seriously.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    What are the odds that CalGun continues to use the news source that fed him the easily refutable misinformation he used when he started this thread?

    I so dislike it when (White) people use the word "thug" to characterize a Black male. It's like you "I can't use the word 'Nigga', so I'll call him a 'thug' instead and stand behind the use of that word because of the unacceptable social behavior he exhibited".

    I could get past this if White people would call a White kid a thug when such a person conducts himself in much the same way as the thug-label is clearly attributed to Black teen/adult males, but the use of this word is so one-sided. You can't tell me it's "the conduct of the person's character" that gives authority to using this label only against Blacks.

    As to the poll question, SecDef Gen. Chuck Hagel did attend Gen. Harold Green's funeral.

    Somebody needs to brush up on the Presidential Cabinet Appointments.

    Also, secretary Chuck Hagel is a cabinet member of Obama which also someone who works for the president.

    Both of these heavy weights far outweigh the importance of 2 people working at the white house office of public engagement and Broderick Johnson, chairman of the My Brother's Keeper Task Force. I think sending him was a very good idea, to prevent more young people from misbehaving.

    Who are the high-ranking officials who attended Brown's funeral?
