Great post Tom, haven't seen you around in awhile. Good to hear from you.
Things I would like to add.
So many people think crime and racism are getting worse, many stated this on this thread, but the statistics show just the opposite with crime. Crime
has dropped a great deal over the last couple of decades, starting in the early nineties, yet so many people think crime is getting worse. I would
say that is a very good example of how successful media is at manipulating public opinion. Look at the murder rates of the seventies and eighties.
It was a lot worse then.
Personally, I also think that the conflict between the races is getting better, not worse. Many prominent blacks are starting to speak out against
black crime and behavior in the inner cities. Many blacks are putting the blame on blacks who perpetrate the crime. This, in my opinion is being
downplayed by the media. While at the same time it is being down played how many whites in small towns are living on welfare. Once again, the media
succeeds at hiding the reality of the situation.
PC is a very clever way of suppressing freedom of speech. When the media does not state the race of the perps, people tend to naturally assume the
perps were black, and this is intentional. Thus, people are afraid to interact with blacks, or people of color. People are willing to continuously
vote for more police, more law enforcement, more jails, and more laws in general.
The welfare created ghettos were set up intentionally in my opinion, in order to blame welfare for all of our social ills, all the while making people
afraid to go outside of their homes or communities. Throw in the war on drugs to make a bad situation worse, and take away even more rights, and the
police states continues to grow. California is bankrupt, but they are increasing the budgets of law enforcement, while cutting the budgets for
schools and welfare. During an economic downturn, an investment in people which works towards the future should see an increase in funding to keep
people in a situation where they can continue to improve themselves and an increase in schooling.
If anything, in my opinion, I think the media encourages thug behavior for inner city youth. Thug behavior has been glamorized. What these kids did
was very wrong, and very bad for their community. Hopefully leaders in the black community make this known, point out to these kids how such behavior
only plays into the hands of The Man, the PTB.
If this Ourspace website was used to promote this event, I hope the website acts quickly to kick the perps off of the website. I hope there is a very
active debate going on at this web site on this very subject right now. I think these discussions are very productive.
Personally, I think the media actively encourages discrimination against white males. The Rush Limbaughs on one side and the Al Sharptons on the
other, working together, not against each other.
