I realize that this is a very tender subject. But as I have observed lately, it seems to me that race relations have gone to a new low in the US. Both blacks and whites are in the streets. Revenge beatings and murder have occurred on both sides. We are at a tipping point. The most troubling aspect of the new tension seems to be coming from agitators who for the purpose of personal power and gain are stirring the pot of racial anger. I think we are on the edge of a very bad setback for race relations in the US and for a possible race war among blacks and whites, and possibly the latino community.?
I have a feeling most of the "race war" you're talking about is occurring in the press more than anywhere. It's a political strategy, nothing more. Why do you think THAT story got so much attention? It was orchestrated that way. Why do you think Obama came out with that BS about Trayvon looking like his son if he had one? Manipulative political drivel. He is bringing back the black vote to his side, since so many blacks are dissatisfied with him. He'll pull the same sht with women, with hispanics, whatever groups he wants to sway back toward him, expect some kind of event to galvanize that group behind Obama.
