Dear Charles You can talk sense all day long, like trying to argue with and applying reason to keep a jihadist from killing, the only thing some people will ever understand is a bullet. This is human nature, and as your article suggests, you are pulling for the black man. In the end, the asian pulls for the asian, the mexican for the mexican, the white pulls for the white. We only pretend to pull together in America. This is human nature. Your use of the concept of "togetherness" can't happen at large because it is against human nature, yours, mine, his, hers, theirs and everybodies. Back a man into a corner and he will likely come out shooting.

You're nobody til somebody loves you
You're nobody til somebody cares
Dean Martin

I hated reading about the later years of Dean Martin where he was once taken by some woman grifter preying on his loneliness to squeeze what she could out if his name. After his son died training in a fighter jet, Dean Martin tumbled into despair. Coupled with long nights and hard partying he was soon just a shell of himself, and yet even in that state, he needed someone to show they cared. This is the way it is for all people.

You may be king, you may possess the world...
