Yes, racism exists. However, it's white males who feel the brunt of it. In addition, is homophobia, racism or misogyny so widespread that it stops these people from getting and education, a job, or housing? No. I'd say Christians are under attack much more than the groups you listed, and specifically white male Christians.

Contrary to what people like De Blasio, Sharpton and even Obama, say about police the cops do more for minority communties than any of those clowns do. In just about any police dept with a minority or ghetto community the police host summer camps, explorer programs, food give aways, etc. In the summer camps I've been involved in we took kids on field trips at least three to four days a week. These camps would cost the average family anywhere from $150-$300 a week. Yet, many police dept's get grants or run the program for these minority families free of charge! Many cops start martial arts programs and do it on their own time free of charge. Many of the cops are white working and helping in the black community. This fairy tale that people like De Blasio and Sharpton talk about are complete lies. What kind of parent tells their mixed race son to be careful around cops because of your skin color? De Blasio is an incompetent, impotent and a disgrace to the office of mayor of NYC.
How the hell did NYC degenerate from Guiliani to De Blasio? Memo to NYPD, take your sweet time responding to calls for service in the minority communities. Let De Blasio and Sharpton handle it if they don't like it.
Interesting that the two cops murdered weren't white, but Asian and Hispanic. Looks like the black radical thugs and liberals are really making friends.
Cortney, I would beg to differ that Michael Brown shouldn't be dead. He attacked Officer Wilson and tried to take his gun. Better him than the officer. In addition, the two cops killed were Asian and Hispanic. I thought it was the bad white cops that deserved to be executed?
MaxUrderer, Real epidemic? When was the last time you saw a black man lynched? If you look at the "Real epidemic" which you conveniently ignore, it's blacks committing the overwhelming amount of violent crimes against whites then vice versa. White people aren't going into black neighborhoods committing burglaries, carjackings, rape, batteries and robberies. All one has to do is look at the Dept of Justice and FBI statistics to see the "real epidemic" is young black males who haven't evolved.
Good point, but also note that 500,000 back then is equivalent to well over a million in todays era.

"Without a doubt, there are bad cops and corrupt cops and violent cops, and without a doubt, the justice system is often unfairly stacked against African Americans, especially young black men." Michael, why do you and numerous others feel the need to qualify your statements with the above nonsense? Is the justice system unfairly stacked against black folks? You can say your piece without falling back on political correctness to appease the leftist's.
How sickening! Trust me this isn't just happening in NY. It's happening around the country. Blacks, gays, women, etc, are given preference like they are some kind of war time veteran. I worked for a law enforcement agency that hired a transvestite. I wish I was kidding. Here is a 6-1 muscular guy walking around with lipstick and a blonde wig. He was a reserve deputy. The funny part is the city had a "gay pride parade" and when the law enforcement transvestite showed up the actual gays and transsexuals thought this reserve deputy was mocking them! I should have filmed it. This country is going down the toilet because of this diversity nonsense. In a police dept in Fl the black cops couldn't pass the promotion exam or score high enough to even make the list. So, in the name of diversity the dept made three separate list for the exam. One for whites, one for blacks and one for Hispanics. They take the top three from each list. So, if your black you can get a failing grade but still get promoted. It's picking the best of the worst.
The only problem with that is the individual who doesn't respond to the summons or citation. The court puts out a warrant for that individual. Then we are back to square one. Considering Mr. Garner's been arrested 30 some odd times we can assume he would ignore the citation or summons. So,eventually the outcome would be the same.
First off this case had nothing to do with race. Zero. A few NYPD did not gather and decide to arrest someone for selling 'loosies". What happened was neighboring businesses were upset that Mr. Garner was selling cigarettes on the street corner taking customers away from their business. These owners then called in a complaint which made it's way to a commanders desk at the NYPD. Then during roll call a sgt told the officers that due to complaints coming in we need to crack down on the selling of "loosies". Mr. Garner was breaking the law. Regardless of whether the law is a low level crime or infraction, Mr. Garner should not have resisted. When a police officer tells you to put your hands behind your back or that you are arrested there are no negotiations! This isn't "Let's Make Deal". It's comply or we'll force you to comply. Garner didn't die from a choke hold. He died because he was obese, had high blood pressure and a host of other ailments that contributed to his death. Period. Oh, and he wasn't your average law abiding citizen who unwittingly didn't know he was breaking the law. He has a long arrest record and has been stopped in the past for the "loosies'. So, he knew damn well what he was doing. That being said, yes, there are many laws on the books that are BS. They are only there for political reasons or for ways the government can generate more money. Vote these people out of office and get these laws changed.
