Everyone who reads Dr. Sowell's column should also read Jeff Sessions' speech on Immigration. It is spot on. No one here in our country should ever "feel" as if they are entitled, yet this is what the dems push, day in, day out.

You can't put it in perspective because this is what "transforming" means.

Tuition Pays for This

You got it, Matt. Spot on. My kid goes to the University of Michigan and paid out of state tuition for 2 years. She was not our dependent for the last two years in order to secure residency status. The illegals are getting away with in state here in NC and at Michigan. It really ticks me off. To boot, she is a conservative who laughs heartily at the ridiculous elective courses. Instead of going easy, she has a minor in physics and music and will get a degree in business/economics...going for the masters in Accounting.

The Consequence of Unaccountability

We are not going to get any accountability and yes. This. is. a. dangerous. precedent. It sends the message, "I am above the law because of whom I work for." This will never be acceptable to me.
My motto is: If one accepts then minimum, the maximum will never be attained, especially if one wants to blame others for their own ineptitude.
Mr. Chapman, With all due respect: Your words ring true. And here comes the but: You didn't ask who perpetuates the continued destruction of families in black communities. You didn't ask why black people are "consigned" to failing schools. Because liberalism has perpetuated that black people are unequal and it has allowed acceptance of many behaviors as the norm rather than the exception. When you can ask the hard questions and attempt to find someone who really cares to fix it, let me know. I was raised for a time in the "projects" that were a mix of whites, and blacks. When my mother realized that this was not going to be a good thing, we got out and found a house to rent in the "suburbs". She worked three jobs, took no welfare and we knew right from wrong because we were taught. Don't you even try to tell me how those kids are supposed to learn right and wrong because you should know the answer. Lawless communities? Please. How did it get that way? Sounds to me like you are no different than any other person looking for a pass instead of putting the blame where it belongs. I graduated high school, I joined the Army, I fell in love and got married, then I graduated from college and then I had kids. My mother busted her hump to raise respectful, productive children. And we are. It can be done and the person I thank is the one who birthed me. That's where it starts, period. And you don't need money or favors to do it. You just have to want it.

You hit the nail on the head, Mr. Schaus. The black people have learned that it was someone else's fault that there is social disparity among them and that instead of being stand up citizens in a time of tragedy, they should riot and blame the white people involved. Isn't it an interesting dichotomy that when a white man/kid/teen has been shot by a black cop or person, no one is rioting in the streets? Why? Because sometimes there really is a senseless tragedy that took place. Or, we ask wait for the facts, only to find out that the white guy was guilty of something. Racism never crosses my mind. But it IS perpetuated in black communities and it hasn't stopped because you've got the race baiters Jackson, Sharpton out there making money as they pretend to care about Blacks. The same goes for the "black" President. He doesn't give a rat's hind end about "his" people. Until the black communities wake up and begin the change, there is no hope, just more of the same.
A. I believe police should have the ability to "militarize. B. I don't think how the police behaved was acceptable. That being said, I am sick and tired of the meme that social disparity is the cause of the riots, deep down, that black people are targets. If a cop stops you, there is a right way and a wrong way to behave. If you draw suspicion, and stuff happens as a result? Who is at fault? Is there a right way to act? Yes. And I don't care what kind of family unit you have or don't. If this were an all black police force, it would be a non- issue. Since it's not, what black people have been taught, it appears to me is that everyone wrongs them so, it's okay to act stupid, break the law and lie to make it all fit a story that someone is owed something and by God, they are going to get it. Who is holding them accountable? Why does the media ignore this?
