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?

I tried again and again and I could not post it. My musing contained no swearing, no abbreviated text phrases but did use religious words. I could post the other two right away and it would not post anything that contained M8888slim, A888888eist because it wasn't politically correct.
I think the "we studied" is a generalization for all who were in class not "we" Obama and Root.

I have tried to post a comment three times. I did not swear. Either TH is censoring me, or this site is having issues. If it posts this, We know I've been censored in the name of political correctness.

The Day Nixon Told the Truth

I was 10 at the time of his resignation. I watched as my Grandmother sobbed. It was a very sad day. Years later, with much reading and reflection, I believed Nixon to still be great and cannot forget the day of his funeral...and how Bob Dole was so broken and so was I. RIP, sir.

Dr. Sowell, You're a gem! Just yesterday I ran into some people who were born and raised here, but spoke Italian as if they had just come through Ellis Island- a side note. Progress is going to kill all of the traditions and languages in another 50 and I won't be here for that...but no. No one who is for a "living minimum wage" is thinking. It's a fact that 2.1% of the working population- under 25 years old are the ones making it on minimum wage. Just like it should be!!! They don't understand that minimum wage is a stepping stone, or that a "Universal Basic Income" (UBI)would be the same thing as an entitlement for people who don't have ambition, and choose to mooch. Sigh. We are in big trouble.
