Furthermore, are you trying to tell me someone who has been shot twice is a viable threat? the shot that killed him was in the head. the other two in his arms. Are you telling me he couldn't have been subdued without being killed? Nah, because Black people have superhuman strength. We can be shot multiple times and effectively win a brawl against highly trained police officers.
If I shot you twice, right now. What are the odds I lose a fight with you. that's a hell of a handicap.

I'm just following your line of thinking. Don't deflect, if that's what you think, let it be known.
I didn't say it was necessarily a good something
You mean the Tea Partyer's are paranoid people living in the past still cowering from Reds under the Bed
Van] Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’” Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. “I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.” In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,” he said. “By August, I was a communist.”
arrett, however, has no experience whatsoever in international negotiations. Her major area of expertise has been to help President Obama “fundamentally transform” the United States into a socialist paradise. Toward that end, for instance, Jarrett helped recruit to the Administration such luminaries as the self-identified communist revolutionary Van Jones (as green jobs czar), the Alinskyite radical Mark Lloyd (as chief diversity officer within the Federal Communications Commission), and the die-hard advocate of wealth redistribution Cass Sunstein (as regulatory czar).
She is a leftist to her core, with notable personal ties to the communist movement. Jarrett’s maternal grandfather, for instance, was a Chicagoan named Robert Taylor, who in the 1940s was involved with such communist fronts as the American Peace Mobilization and the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee. Also a member of these groups was Frank Marshall Davis, the communist journalist who in the 1970s would mentor a young Barack Obama.
railing against invisible monsters only they can see and fear, ending government intrusion into people's lives except intrusion into people's bedrooms and bodies, opposing all government spending unless it is spending money on invading countries and building more weapons and statues of the Ten Commandments on public property, and supporting the right of everyone to gorge themselves on McDonalds while preventing them from getting access to the expensive healthcare they are going to need after gorging themselves freely on plastic and mutations.

The only thing we owe blacks is equal opportunity and fair treatment under the laws. We owe everyone equal opportunity and fair treatment under the laws.
I don't condone violence committed by anybody, regardless of race. My only point is, there is a perfectly valid reason why so many are sensitive to what happened in Ferguson. What they don't want is a repeat of what happened during a couple of hundred years in America. To deny that it happened is wrong, and to deny that there is any possibility of history repeating itself is naive. Hence, the sensitivity.
your inability to see the world beyond your narrow, black/white and conservative/liberal paradigm also limits your understanding of the greater world, as evidenced by your assumption that, I must hate everything I disagree with, or I must be a liberal. It must suck having such a limited world view.
To be honest, I could care less whether or not you are into raw cows milk, or raw cows flesh, or the blood of pure white lambs born on Passover. I really don't. I do believe people should have the right to put whatever they want into their bodies, and laws that say otherwise are invasive.

In all honesty the reason there's rioting in Ferguson over this stupid incident is because of the entitlement factor. "Oh we were slaves for 100 years so now we should be put on a pedestal" Well here's a few reasons why it should just be forgotten
1. The Hebrew people were enslaved for about 430 years (they're not whining)Oh and 6 million killed less than a 100 years ago.
2. If your ANCESTORS (not you) weren't brought to America all that time ago you'd be living in Africa. Do you know what that's like? I do. I'm there now. IT SUCKS!
3. The sooner racism is not brought up anymore then it is gone. Claiming racism for everything is what creates racism.
4. Stop calling yourself African Americans. You are an AMERICAN. That is creating a divide as well. They traced a large portion of Black people's DNA and did you know most was traced back to Europe? Funny huh?
These are just a few things. I've been wanting to make a thread, but I am too busy lately. Deployment sucks. Ha
