    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.

    Whites can be abused by authorities too. There is racism against white people. My uncle in Hawaii was racially profiled based on hsi race (being white). He lived on the small island of Kauai where whites are discriminated against by ethnic islanders.

    Re: Mistreated by authorities

    I've been mistreated by an authority figure because of my gender. Betcha there are few adults of my gender who haven't been mistreated by someone in authority. Greater upper body strength seems to confer some kind of idea to some men that it's permissible to be abusive toward women in public.

    I think many times cops are easier on women and take more compassion towards them. Men are mistreated in that we are generally treated harsher than women in my opinion.

    Cops aren't the only authority figures in society. In the workplace, male bosses tend to be the ones who are the worst in their treatment of women, where men get the deferential treatment.

    Now that women are earning the majority of college degrees, this may change sooner rather than later.

    Except with that, only cops can put you in jail and make your life a living nightmare in all areas. A boss only has control in the work place.

    I have not suffered such abuses, but my biggest crimes are speeding.

    I can't help but think that it is this kind of attitude that keeps racism survive.

    Not because of my skin color, but because of my gender.
