    I'm sure you don't actually believe that... I don't think that way at all. People are people no matter what color their skin - it's more about education and economics than anything else.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    How can we tell it won't work until we try it? Remove the lifetimes of handouts, allow school choice, improve inner city schools and incentives to improve those areas and provide opportunities and people will thrive.

    To defer to a white person's ego before deferring to a black person's basic human rights would be subhuman of me. I'm sorry, this problem is not going to go away until it goes away.

    That's not true at all, you might want to rephrase that to being perceived as sub humans, at this point, I'm not sure if you're serious or funning.

    About the only thing that's changed that is visible is that blacks are shopping, eating, and using public transportation with whites, and aren't openly discriminated against as much, it's more covert now, people hide what they feel inside of them. Not to be disparaging or denigrating here, but that old saying comes to mind, you can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country of the boy.

    I say yes.There is no reason to mention the races of the individuals involved is such a shooting unless it is to instill the idea that the reason that one individual was shot because of skin and the individual who did the shooting did so because of race. When someone burglarizes a house they don't say a hispanic,black, white or whatever burglarized the the home of a white,hispanic, black of whatever homeowner. Other police shootings do not get as much attention as this story. If the media did not do these things I seriously doubt there would be any riots in Ferguson.

    No question about it..

    China The Chinese state news Xinhua News Agency said hours before the governor ordered National Guard troops into Ferguson, "Obviously, what the United States needs to do is to concentrate on solving its own problems rather than always pointing fingers at others."

    Russia The Russian Foreign Ministry stated, "Our American partners [have] to pay more attention to restoring order in their own country before imposing their dubious experience on other nations" and that the U.S. "has positioned itself as a 'bastion of human rights' and is actively engaged in 'export of democracy' on a systematic basis", but that "serious violations of basic human rights and barbaric practices thrive" in the country.

    Iran Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency commented, "[V]iolence has become institutionalized in the U.S. in recent years, but since President Obama, the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner, came to the White House, the violence has intensified, and now it has erupted against blacks in Ferguson."[

    Germany In an interview with Der Spiegel, Marcel Kuhlmey, professor in the department of security management at the Berlin University of Economics and Law, a security expert, who asserted that what happened in Ferguson could never happen in Germany, stating that "In the U.S., it seems to me, the police are far quicker to resort to guns. Even at the training stage, there is a much heavier emphasis on shooting [than in Germany]".[220] Zeit Online described the incident as an example of deep-rooted racism in the U.S, concluding that "the situation of African-Americans has barely improved since Martin Luther King."

    Am I reading that right? Is that really a stone cold, flat out racist comment?
