An Honest Conversation on Race

Sanity102 Wrote: 18 hours ago (6:01 PM)
How telling; your number one shows that you see illegals as a race rather than an act done by people. The topic is race and you throw in the issue of illegals. THIS is the reason why the issue of illegals make conservatives look racists, why they've spent 50 years trying to convince Blacks that they are not racists and will spend the next 50, trying to convince Hispanics. The illegal immigration would have more credibility if (and here's my 3) 1- Illegals didn't automatically mean Hispanic. 2- Border security didn't mean just the border to the South, instead of the North where the largest population of Moslems live. 3- You can convince the people that paying a fine for breaking a traffic law was "amnesty". As for your last comment; I have a suggestion. Go back to the party you agree with. Yes, I know they can only garner 3% of the vote and very few people will read or care about your opinions, but at least you won't have to hold your breath.
From the other side: "Where are the 20 witnesses? Where is the hospital records of Officer Wilson's injury? People should be ashamed of contributing to the defense of the cop who killed an unarmed teenager. Michael WAS shot in the back; the cop missed and hit his arm." And the good ol' "If the cop is not indicted, then the Prosecuting attorney did not do his job." It is so weird; I do not get this absolute conviction that Wilson is guilty--and from people who normally don't believe witnesses who hasn't been sworn in.

It is also to give White all the power: to make one succeed, to be happy, to be someone.

I wonder if Blacks who blame their poverty and ills on The Whites are actually saying that they do not have the power to make their lives better. Great people succeed despite adversity; to say Blacks can't is to accuse Blacks of the inability to be great.

And yes I said "Black Racist", as I would say "White Racist" if a person kept demanding that America solves the ills of White people. Racism can and does exist whenever the color of a person's skin comes before all else.

The question that none of the Black racist seem to want to answer is this. If things have got to change, how? Do we stop arresting Black suspects after 5 if only 2 White suspects have been arrested? Do we demand that our cops look for White and Asian suspects even though witnesses claim that the crime was committed by a Black person (so there will be no profiling?) Do we hire cops based on the color of their skin so that Blacks will feel represented? And will that set us up for hiring when other races grow in numbers? Exactly how do we "fix" the race problem?

First Step for Ferguson

And I will tell you what I am not comfortable with. (And I suspect most Americans share this discomfort.) Sometimes, the only thing standing between Joe / Jane Citizen and bully (criminal) is the cops. Do we really want to make being a cop such a disrespected and ungrateful occupation that the force is either undermanned or refuse to go into certain neighborhoods?

Your libertarianism is showing. First off, the idea of dropping the war on drugs because we already lost (it may take the criminal element out of drug pushing) might work IF the government wouldn't tax the legal drug to death. They will and the cost will be so prohibitive that the Black market will still exist. But let's put that argument aside, let us say you are right and the easy (and illegal) method of making money is no longer there for young Black Americans. They will find other methods because the fundamental problem still exist: less education, glamorization of hood life, victimization. Do we then decriminalize whatever gets Blacks arrested? The fact is that our society is moving toward a healthier environment for our children ie the war on cigarettes and junk food. We expect a high standard of behavior for our children because we want them to have a high standard of living. Thus polite respect for authority (bosses, teachers, parents) are demanded and the best education and skills they can obtain are encouraged. Why then, if we do indeed want an end to racism, do we insist on not expecting and demanding the SAME from Blacks?

Ferguson and the Militarization Myth

This is ridiculous. It's the "fair" mentality that believes that just because the sane have weapons, the insane should have them. "Fair" isn't both sides having the same chance of winning a confrontation, most times "fair" is the bully finding out that the one being bullied has a big friend carrying a huge stick and deciding to play nicely is the way to go. When people break the peace, they are bullying civilians and police are the big friend, their gear the big stick.
