If I gave up the struggling start up I would have been eligible. The very nice hispanic woman at the social services, when asked how it could possibly be that we couldn't get any help at all, pointed at the ethnicity sector of the application and the "white" box with the checkmark in it. Everybody has their crosses to bear. I am of Polish descent, I have (had) relatives who came here fleeing Nazi Germany, and many who did not escape. This was not nearly as long ago as slavery, and yet I harbor no ill will toward Germans. Let it go. Goading people and accusing them of racism until you finally piss them off so you can capture a sound bite is childish at best. Continuing to blame your present circumstances on something that happened over 100 years ago is a cop out and a poor excuse for poor personal behavior.
    You gripe about your hardships in life, and I'm the one who needs to "let it go"? Methinks you have your pronouns mixed up.

    Hmm, I don't know about other people, but racism looks the same today as it has to me in the past 50+ years, ugly.

Nor did they need to constantly air the story dad after day,especially when they do not do that for other police shooting suspect stories.

    There was no racial discrimination in this case.So your point is irrelevant. Contrary to popular liberal belief they do not issue the cops black men hunting licenses nor are police prowling the streets for black men to shoot.
    If television and print media want to compete with online media, then what social networks say is relevant. In terms of the relevancy of my point, it is relevant regardless of whether racial discrimination exists in the Ferguson case because it directly addresses the problem of "race riots" you pointed out. If you don't want them, then eliminated racial discrimination. Unlike White people who riot over Pumpkin Festivals, baseball games, football games, a surfing competition and a university firing someone who covered up child molestation, Black people riot over injustice, or at least perceived injustice so maybe you should work on trying to stop White people destroying neighborhoods over pumpkins before you start worrying about anyone else.

    You clearly missed the point. The only reason we are still talking about racism is that there are race baiters like you.

    The leftist MSM is inciting riots to the best of their ability, though there is only so much the NY Times and MSNBC can do to create violence. But they are putting out the effort.

    Then stop being so offensive. If you think everyone is a racist just because you are, the problem is yours, not mine.
