A little off topic, I apoligize, but I'm addressing the general idea of race that the thread has evolved into.
Racism and bigotry is endemic in America, I'm American and I see it all the time in all the institutions.
A couple local examples, I'm in PA
White undercover cop killed by white patrol cop after white undercover cops START a shootout with a suspected drug dealer. The patrol cop arrived on
the scene and engaged the undercover cops in a gun battle in which one of the undercover cops died of a head shot... black man goes to jail for MURDER
though he didn't shoot the white cop, didn't start the shootout AND wasn't at the scene when the cop finally was shot.
Our city has a population of approx 90k, 46% hispanic and 11% black. Reading the paper, the only "color" you'll see is when crime is reported, or a
response to a crime.
Look @ the shooting on FL, that happened a month ago and it is just being reported and made a big deal out of now.
It took 3 days for the news to report on a cruise ship hitting a cargo ship in Viet Nam.
The news still talks about Natalie Halloway (sp).
Just think and SEE for a second, please.
What is the population of our prison system by percentage as compared to our nation, by race/skin I mean?
We passed laws to kill off specific groups of people, it was a model for Hitler.
We passed laws to round people up and make them live in areas away from "white" people.
For nearly 60 years our military sole purpose seems to have been to kill non white people.
We are racist through & through; churches teach folks to hate what is different, institutions teach people to hate what is different. FBI, CIA, NSA,
TSA, KKK... all the same in the end.
