Each of us is programmed from childhood to believe that the top group of our hierarchies — and in the U.S. culture, that’s white men — represents everyone, so it can feel awkward, even ridiculous, when we try to call attention to those people as a distinct group and hold them accountable.

For example, our schools teach American history as the history of everyone in this nation. But the stories we learn are predominantly about white men. To study the history of other groups, people have to take separate classes, such as African American history, women’s history or Native American history. And if we take “Hispanic American History,” we don’t expect to learn “Asian American History,” because a class about anyone but white men is assumed not to be inclusive of anyone else.

This societal and cultural programming makes it easy for conservative, white-male-led groups to convince the nation that an organization led by white men, such as the NRA or the tea party movement, can represent the interests of the entire nation when, in fact, they predominately represent only their own experiences and perspectives.

If life were equitable, white male gun-rights advocates would face some serious questions to assess their degree of credibility and objectivity. We would expect them to explain:

What facets of white male culture create so many mass shootings?

Why are so many white men and boys producing and entertaining themselves with violent video games and other media?

Why do white men buy, sell and manufacture guns for profit; attend gun shows; and demonstrate for unrestricted gun access disproportionately more than people of other ethnicities or races?

Why are white male congressmen leading the fight against gun control?

If Americans ask the right questions on gun issues, we will get the right answers. These answers will encourage white men to examine their role in their own culture and to help other white men and boys become healthier and less violent.

Buddha? Have you lost you frikken mind? Allah?

The furthest from the US any of the FF's ever made it was Franklin and Adams traveling to Paris. They knew of non-European cultures and religions only in the abstract. By the way, Buddhism, even today, is a relatively small group worldwide. France didn't settle in SE Asia until around 1890.

There is no blood lust on 1 demographic or the other. Thus country was founded on blood shed. That's the evil inside human nature. This is what I mean when I say we good & evil inside us. We weren't born with it, but thru time pleasure & triumph, horrors & bad times shape us into what we are. The blood stained teachings of Americas history assures that future generations will unwillingly be initiated into the culture of blood shed!

Google Insults Christians
On Easter Sunday, Google is honoring the birthday of the late labor organizer Cesar Chavez by placing a Chavez portrait within the middle “o” of the Google logo that appears on the homepage of the popular search engine.
While Google frequently decorates its logo to celebrate various holidays and special events, it is unclear why the company chose specifically to honor Chavez’s birthday, instead of Easter Sunday.
Chavez co-founded the organization now known as the United Farm Workers union (UFW). He became an iconic figure in the labor movement, with his stature only increasing since his death in 1993.
Maybe its 'cause this is Chavez' birthday and they chose that over the pagan holiday?

Wrong bro! They were or had already taken boat trips to Africa to buy slaves. Some not all, but surely some were Muslim so yea Allah. Seems your goingooff the myth that this world was created 6,000yrs ago, but people had been crossing seas & mingling with eachother. They definitely had knowledge of other religions!

What is Obama doing to control gang violence in his own community, where all the guns used to commit all the crimes are already illegal?

Why does Obama care more about a small number of victims of a psychopath in Newtown than he does about an epidemic of gang violence inbred in the culture of Chicago?

How about enforcing the existing laws first before legislating against responsible citizens?

BREAM: The story that Doug McKelway had tonight that's been out there on the internet it's been all over the place about the Department of Homeland Security making massive buys of ammunition. We got some facts tonight, Charles.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: Yeah and I think it should reassure those people who are watching us now from a cave in the Rockies where they are provisioned for a year or two.

BREAM: We might need them. You might want to stay friends with them.

KRAUTHAMMER:-- waiting for the Obama coup d'etat, which apparently is not going to come. Senator Coburn, who isn't exactly a liberal, has said number one the amount of ammunition is less than in previous years. Number two, it's about a tenth of the ceiling that the DHS has allowed.

And the last point is that the ammunition that people are saying is now in short supply, is being used by the DHS for an obvious purpose. It is being used for the training of agents like the border security agents who have to go to the range a lot and stay sharp. So everything on that pans out. I hate to disappoint the conspiracy theorists they are going to have to come up with something new. And they will.

Is rare that someone can be so wrong, yet so right! Blacks don't commit mass murders everyday, straight lie! Mass shootings & mass murder are 2 different things, but you're right, they're for a reason. The mass murders we're accustom to shoot innocent purple for no reason at all. That means nobody is safe. The mass shootings of blacks is wrong its a culture & it rarely goes outside that culture!

Exactly why nobody cares about ghetto murders, even though the body count is orders of magnitude higher each year than all the Columbines and Newtowns combined.

The fact that the victims are mostly killers themselves is an obvious factor.

Killing six or eight or ten in one night, even if in separate events, is mass murder nevertheless. And it happens all the time in cesspools like Chicago.

Finally a right whiner admitting that illegals are not covered under Obamacare.

I realize all you dumbass right whiners have medical degrees and can determine that there is no medical reasoning for a sex change operation.
