I gave a bedroom in my 2 bedroom house to a local man and his 2 children, they were sleeping in his car, until he and his buddies could afford a place of their own.
“In the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear?”

I do not need to be told to treat people fairly. I was raised that way. If I don't like you, it has nothing to do with skin tone...it has to do with you.
All I'm seeing these days, are rioters. Any good done by the protesters has long since been overshadowed by the harm done by the rioters.

You want to redress issues, then speak to me as an equal, do not come into the conversation accusing me of things that, quite frankly, have nothing to do with me.
What is it that America has supposedly not heard??
I'm white, therefore I'm guilty of something...what remains undefined. I guess it's being white.
I'll continue to judge by the content of a person character, rather than the color of their skin.
Now you tell me Jim Crow, but Jim Crow has been dead for decades.
The closest thing we have to that nowadays is Affirmative Action which largely discriminates against whites and Asians.
You can't claim that government mandates black kids go to school and then straight to prison because those laws don't exist.
The school-to-prison pipeline is a process through which students are pushed out of schools and into prisons. In other words, it is a process of criminalizing youth that is carried out by disciplinary policies and practices within schools that put students into contact with law enforcement. Once they are put into contact with law enforcement for disciplinary reasons, many are then pushed out of the educational environment and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems.
The school-to-prison pipeline indicates that there is a relationship between minority young men who are disciplined in K-12 settings through suspensions and expulsions and those who end up incarcerated later in life. Here are the alarming statistics:
Black students are nearly four times as likely to face suspensions as their white peers
Suspensions of black high school students have increased eleven times more quickly than white peers since the 1970s
